Dr.Richard Williams Journal


Recommended Posts

Dr William Richards : Day unknown : time Unknown

I have lost track of all time in this place, Its terrified me to watch humanity spiral into this chaos. Survivors killing survivors, Bandits killing bandits, All becoming food for the Homo Coprophagus Somnambulus in lay terms "Zombies".

I guess everything has changed so much its hard to remember the world before. When I had a wife and daughters, they are probably dead now. Dead because I can't find patient Zero, Because I failed to save them. The closest thing I have to Family is Andre, he was immune to the infection. But god knows where he is now, most likely he has been ripped apart and the wolves are gnawing his bones. I may be next.

The bandits took everything, the only thing they didn't take was this journal, I guess a book didn't have much value to them. Fucking Bandits, if the infection wasn't a plague on the human race enough, those who pray on the weak are no better than the Zombies that roam the night feeding on those unfortunate enough to catch their attention. I can hear them now, groaning outside this very building.

I will head North soon, I had heard a rumour that patient Zero could be there.

Good start off.

Some suggestions, use some paragraphs. It makes it easier to read.

Some color couldn't do wrong either.

Creating some more immersive background would do wonders.

Keep it up!

I had read the story, and was trying to word what I wanted to say about it, this pretty much sums it up perfectly.

I love that you use Homo Coprophagus Somnambulus, but there aren't many more examples of your Doctor lifestyle bleeding into your story line.

Dead because I can't find patient Zero

Where did you get this determination to find patient zero? Was it to come up with a cure? Does he blame himself because he was a researcher working on the cure and couldn't come up with something?

But god knows where he is now, most likely he has been ripped apart and the wolves are gnawing his bones.

That is some deep seated negativity right there. Is this inherent in your character because of the situation, or was he always a bit of a pessimist?

This is meant to be a starting journal entry ( with more to be added every-time I play ). and more of a explanation as to why he has no gear and some of his other goals. As for his lack of Doctoral terms, His medical background isnt as important in this entry as its more of a personal venting of Richard. He was just robbed and lost everything his had scavanged, His medical tools, Some of his research samples ect. So at this point he feels hopeless, and depressed. He feels like his goals are out of reach But is by no means a real full history, His motivations and history are much more thought out in full. But that will be discovered by other players in game whom ask.

Endgame, His reasons for finding patient Zero are both personal and professional, On the personal level he wants to do good and save his family back in Canada if they are even still able to be saved. But professionally he is an Infectious Disease Specialist who was working alongside the CDC when the infection was discovered and brought to Russia to find Patient Zero to develop a cure.

As for his negativity, He was robbed by bandits. Lost all of his research samples, his notes and any and all minor leads he had written down. But who wouldn't be depressed, he has been working for quite some time to develop a cure and day after day he watched the world become worse. Personally he feels responsible for the world coming to the apex of decay its at.

His concerns for Andre ( another player in the RP ) are because he is mentally ill and extremely unstable and escaped a hospital when the infection hit. This hospital is where Richard was visiting to try and find key to defeating the Virus. He made a connection with Andre because of his immunity to the virus but grew to care for the man deeply in his time at the hospital.

So not a pessimist by nature, but in the light of the current situation he feels extremely defeated.

I very much appreciate the comments and advice, Questions are always welcome as well. I never know when someone will give me some extra ideas to help further flush out more detail about Who Richard is and who he is likely to become.

Nice!

I like to keep some things off the forums just so that others have to RP and build a relationship with Richard, Or if someone is feeling lazy they can check out his journal from time to time and find out what he is doing and each time a little more of who he is and his motivations will be revealed.
