Hello Guest and welcome to Zompony.
To start off, I should explain how this is going to work. You will use a OC of your choice to fight, loot, survive. You are the one who chooses what their goals and skills are, and I will roll to see if you complete a task. Here is an example. "Starlight want's to wack the zompony in the head with a frying pan *rolls athletic check and if she even hits the walking corpse and if she does then a strength check to see how much it affected the zompony. In this case she rolled a 1 in both characteristic checks and here is the results* Starlight hit the zompony square in the face with so much force that it's neck snapped backwards, it then flops onto the ground. Once again no more than a corpse"
You have 30 points and can have a maximum of 9 points in each characteristic. You must have at least one point in each characteristic._Rules__________________________________________________
1. No matter what, you must not abandon your group
2. I'm tired of people posting one thing and then abandoning the RP. If you don't post within a week after the one before you posted, I will simply kick you out of the rp and say that your character is lost (Not necessarily dead) and if you must leave for a week, please PM me beforehand. =D
3. My word is final
4. Do not post in any of the groups before you made an app
5. FOLLOW POSTING ORDER!
6. Don't type stuff like "Then he cut the zompony's head off."
As it is not guaranteed that he or she will succeed in doing so. try "He made a attempt to cut the zompony's head off."
7. Have fun =D
8. Don't add stuff to the scenery like "He was in a alley surrounded by zomponies. but he just climbed up the ladder next to him (that was there for some reason) and escaped."
Even if it's in a negative way you magically summon scenery, it's still forbidden. I will tell you if your character sees something in the results.
9. Don't join groups that says -FULL-
in it , or I will delete your post. (Those who are already in it can still post of course =D)
10. You can't have less than 1 or higher than 9 points in any characteristic.

Now for an explanation on what each characteristic does.
Athletic Skill is mainly use is to see if you can hit a zompony. But aside from that it impacts how good you are at running, flying, climbing, swimming, dodging and so on and so fourth.
Perception is used for scouting, looting, and spotting dangers like zomponies or traps as well as checking to see if somepony is bitten.
Strength is used to see how much damage you can inflict on the undead. other than that, it is useful for pushing or lifting heavy objects and helping your pony carry more stuff at once.
Intelligence is used for crafting and medical attention. It's also used to see if somepony is lying or not (I will make a roll the liar's charisma versus your intelligence). Other than that it has various unspecified uses.
Charisma is used to distract, bluff, or otherwise impact others opinion of your OC (though nopony is forced to like your OC) it can come in handy when you need to convince somepony to trust you and can be one of the more useful abilities if done right.
Luck impacts everything ever so slightly. It's most commonly used to see what kind of loot you find and if you get a good hand in poker. It can also save you from random accidents. This one is very unspecific but trust me when I say it's worth putting points into.
Toughness is not just how much damage you can take before you go down, it's also how likely you are to get infected, or how easily you catch a disease, how tolerant to pain you are and many other physical things you can resist.
Willpower is used to see how brave you are and if you can make a difficult decision or not. It's what keeps you from screaming like a little filly when you see a spider and it's what keeps you focused on the task at hand. It's good for natural leaders.
Magic is rather self explanatory, Though there is a limit as to what your unicorn can use. (Also watch out when using magic as it makes your horn glow with magical energy which zomponies can see)_Links!_______________________________________________________Group one Sugarcube Corner -FULL-Group two Canterlot Group three Carousel Boutique _Zomponies___________________________________________________-The common-
They walk, run and some can even fly. They tend to ignore damage inflicted on them and are generally the most abundant of the zomponies. -Spittoon/Bomber-
"The Spittoon is not the strongest of zomponies; in fact, very weak, not even being able to bite. But they have a habit of spitting and vomiting the infected mush inside them, which not only gives you a burning rash where it touches, but if it gets in wounds or your mouth, you have a chance of getting infected yourself."
And if some somepony comes across a Bomber: "A Bomber is a Spittoon, who spits outs almost acid-like mush at living ponies, but slightly different. Since they haven't seen a pony in a long while, the mush builds up in their body, making them look rather plump. On contact, they sometimes(and usually) explode-The Siren-
Usually a mare, the Siren lures her prey with her sobbing. (Unlike the witch from L4D) And plays along with the survivors concern for her until she can get them close enough to bite them. (Usually in the throat) She is perhaps the most intelligent of the special infected, she is even capable of saying a few words, and sometimes remember her name. She is rather thin and typically has a messy mane.-The Mockingbird-
Mockingbirds are zompony's that can mimic speech. When fresh, they can sometimes even talk, though it's very limited. With very large and long necks, they are quite a strange sight to behold, as well as quite a cursed noise to hear.-Dark wings-
: A dark pegasus who flies silently over Equestria and walks on rooftops, searching for prey to rip apart. Slowly and painfully. They can be pushed off with strength then stabbed, but if you fail it may end up tearing you apart. They have long sharp teeth and smile when they spot a pony. They tend to laugh a little when they are killing ponies. -Weepers-
Weepers are weeping zombies crying over the loss of there loved one's they will follow you were ever you go and if you decide to attack them they will rage out and start attacking you these creatures can speak small words like "Come back my love" and "Why would you do that my love? Do you not love me?"it is best not to hit one with a blunt weapon but a bladed one instead.
