Campaign Name: ?
Tagline: "?"

Chapter 1
Location: Urban
Mission Start: Barricaded Movie Rental
Primary Objective: Train Station
Starting Equipment: (Items available in Safe Room)
•Pistols
•Submachine Guns
•Pump Shotguns
•Medkits
•Crowbar (x1)

The Survivors:
•Alex - Assault - Alex is scarred in more ways than one. She's done what she's had to do to survive, and will continue to do so.
•William - Assault - Weary, and sometimes unpleasant to be around, but otherwise a nice guy.
•Mitchell - Assault (Medic) - Tactical, paranoid, girl-chaser.
•Emily - Shotgunner - Friendly, trusting, and optimistic. Always wants to do the best she can in order to please others.
•Rex - Sniper - A tad cocky, nice to the ladies, hard working, does not know when to quit
•Cody - Sniper - Has been infected with the "Hunter" strain. While he has managed to stave off the worst of the infection, he has been affected, a fact that the other survivors are incredibly wary of.
---------------------------

I think we should start off with a very limited selection of equipment. And let's stick with things that are available in-game.

Survivors will be allowed to bring a single item from their previous adventures with them to the starting safe room, giving them a unique advantage at the start of the roleplay. This includes a magnum in place of their standard pistol, a melee weapon, a medical kit, or things of that nature.

Let's try to account for ammo. Surviving the apocalypse means you're going to run out of juice sooner or later, and a bit of weapon swapping along the way will keep things interesting.

Breaking it up into segments would be a good idea. Each mission taking place in its own thread.

Due to Cody's infected status, he can, on some occasions, pass himself off as "one of them". I'm sure we could use this at some point.

Additional ideas, pl0x?

Per the cbox, a train or something? I don't think it's been on in L4D. Plus the tagline:
Tagline: All aboard the 5pm to DEATH.

I'm in. If it involves trains, I'd say "Railway To Hell" should be the campaign name.

Ok, so the train station has two sets of tracks, one that for trains that have picked up Survivors and are leaving the city, and one for trains that are going back to pick up more. We all jump into the evacuation train, which is deserted, aside from ourselves and the engineer. A few minutes into the evacuation, a train returning to the city rumbles by in the opposite direction. No one thinks much of it until the Infected begin leaping off of it in an attempt to board our car. Cue epic train defense, end Chapter 1. Chapter 2 would pick up shortly after abandoning the train as it's overrun, and forcing us to continue our search for an alternative means of leaving the city.

I say we have a chapter in the town and one in the train station before we get on the train. Most campaigns have five chapters, so we could fit in several areas.

Chapter 1: Movie Rental --> Train Station
Chapter 2: Train Station --> Boarding the Train/Beginning the trip out of the city
Chapter 3: Train Defense --> ?
Chapter 4: ? --> ?
Chapter 5: ? --> ?

I dunno. It'd have to be a big train station for it to take up a whole chapter just getting to the train. We'd get to have more changes in location if we got on the train at the end of the first chapter.

There's some pretty big train stations, and even if we were changing location, trains are small areas, smaller than stations, it would be cool, but we couldn't do too much there.

I like the idea of getting to the engine at the end, unhitching it from the cars, and riding off as the zombie train coasts to a stop, as a good final scene.

Just asking, but are the international weapons being used?

International weapons = MP5 Navy (submachine gun), SiG Sauer SG-552 (assault rifle), and GOL Sniper Magnum/Arctic Warfare Sniper Magnum (sniper rifles, bolt-action).

I'm pretty sure we're only using weapons featured in either of the two games.

Yeah, just to simplify things. Besides, none of us are German, so the international weapons wouldn't be available anyway. Tongue
