YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE...MAYBE TWICE!
Forest of the Dead
It all changed in the twenty first century. No one knew how or why the recent the recently recently decesed were coming back to life, religious groups said it was a sign from god punishing humanity for its sins while scientists were tasked with finding out why the recent dead were coming back to life along with trying to find a why of stopping the living dead, as time went on towns and cities were quarantined as the living dead started to outnumber the living. as the situation got worse non operational soldiers were deployed to counter the living dead whilst trying to keep law and order.
Eventually society descended into chaos as people fled the owns and cities to escape the living dead, any surviving soldiers were highly sought after by civillian groups of survivors as groups of survivors were formed, some managed to find places of safety such as a farmhouse or some kind of secure building where they knew they were safe... at least for a while.
But as time went on supplies began to dwindle so suvivors started to send out groups of foragers to look for supplies, some never made it back either by being attacked by groups of the living dead or by other groups of survivors and those that made it back usually returned with little or no supplies.
Soon the inevitable happened as fighting for power withing groups began which led to territorial disputes between nearby groups of survivors as the fighting between survivors went on splinter groups were formed, some even decided to return to the towns and cities to reclaim them them from the living dead, some succeeded and tried to return to a normal life whilst dealing with the dead.
Days turned into weeks and the weeks turned into months the number of survivors began to fall, then one day Chinook helicopters started appearing in the skies dropping flyers reminding the living that they were not forgotten and told of a rallying point in Scotland. some decided to try and make the trek to the rallying point, soon hundreds of people eventually decided to make the journey hilst others decided to remain behind to live the life that they have come to know, those that chose to stay behind doubted that help would eventually arrive and if it did it would probably be too late.
okay, i know this isn't Dead City chapter 2 or The Ghoul but hopefully this should tide you over till they're typed up
