Your the last man alive on earth. You do not know what happened to everyone, you just woke up to find that everyone everywhere is gone. What would you do in such an event? How would you survive the beginning? Things to consider

>Caged animals are trapped but all animals are alive
>Power and internet are on for only 5 days until you'll have to use generators / batteries
>Everything is still on
>Gasoline from gas stations and cars will go bad after a year
>Bodies are as rare as finding a 5 dollar bill on the street, these bodies do not rot and the feet / shoes are away burnt "which is a huge hint on the happening"

I'm starting an RP / Table top hybred about every single human "except a handful" simply disappeared from the face of the earth. I can use some more ideas so i can know what my RPers might do. Thanks.

Step one: print relevant information off of internet to satisfy curiosity. Unless whatever happened was EXTREMELY sudden, somebody on twitter or something should have written some stuff that gives an idea of what happened.

Step two, find a library. Having a source of information on how to do things and what to do in certain cases can prove useful. Having that source last after the internet goes down, even moreso.

Step 3: Procure food: There's enough food and supplies out there to supply most of the world, there's probably enough to last you the rest of your life, or at least until you get acclimated to living in the wild.

There. Barring hostile creatures, that should be enough to last.

Other things of note:
Bicycles for transportation/solar powered vehicles: It'll beat having to run everywhere after gas gives.
Get Fit: Cause you won't have much else to do, and it'll probably help your chances of survival

And without any sort of external factors that hinder it, such as other people or hostile creatures, surviving should be easy (As long as you don't get stupid).

>Gasoline from gas stations and cars will go bad after a year

No they won't. Cars especially can run for fucking ages. And in this setting I can make gas last for ages with stable that I now have from pilfering local shops and the like. So gas will last quite awhile.

Plus why arent you running a diesel setup? Like what the fuck?

>Caged animals are trapped but all are still alive.

Those caged animals will more than likely die of starvation without their precious human handlers. Their cages turn that were once their homes turn into prisons and they starve to death and waste away.

I have not seen it, but in the event that you have not I'd recommend that you check this series out. It paints an interesting hypothetical of what would happen to the world if everyone disappeared.


I have some speculation which I would be happy to share with you, but how factual it is, I cannot attest for.

I think that the sewage would overflow into the city streets after people weren't there to take care of the sewage treatment plants ext. It would cause a lot of algae or moss to grow, then if the city got cold during the winter, fugus and mold might be the dominate plant life after some years.

Also, nuclear fallout from all of the reactors would be disastrous the world over, it could cause some severe

Id be interested in how desertification in Africa / the Middle East might be effected if people left. It might be halted as plant life grows, or it might get worse without people there to prevent the process.

Feral animals will become an issue very quickly, so I'd arm myself with weapons that require very little maintenance. Given that I'm from a nogunz country I'd probably default to to blades, clubs and maces until I picked up.

Well.. yea. Power for neighborhoods and generally everywhere else will go with nobody to maintain it. Hospitals / police stations have generators but those will burn out eventually. I didn't say you couldn't use Green tec, so long as you can salvage it.

>No they won't. Cars especially can run for fucking ages. And in this setting I can make gas last for ages with stable that I now have from pilfering local shops and the like. So gas will last quite awhile. Plus why arent you running a diesel setup? Like what the fuck?

I didn't make it clear so my bad, everything is on still as if everyone left in a moment. Cars are still on, lights, video games, computers. Also If you know how to make gasoline last loner then go for it.

Right, you must put the accent on the mystery, involve your players into finding what happened. The reason CoC has so many investigators dying in haunted places is because the whole game is turning toward this. Your setting sounds like an open sandbox and the mystery is just a part of it. Unless there are immediate clues, players will just figure this is a survival and will build forts and wait for hordes of zombies that will never come.

>> No.27185924


My reason to survive is to survive, simple as that. People who immediately jump to "I HAVE TO KILL MYSELF" when they have no one to listen to their inane bullshit are idiots. Sure, I enjoy contact and communication with other people, but I'm not about to end my life and hence, any chance of experiencing anything ever again just because. And there's always a chance of other people having survived, so I can also survive for the sake of meeting up with them. Even if no one else did, how am I supposed to know that? As far as I know, there could be others.

Probably the first thing would be to get a radio, rig up speakers in town, broadcast a meeting location. It'd be an intermediate location, somewhere where I can watch without revealing myself in case of hostiles. Gather people together, weed out the unstable ones, slowly reform society.

Second would be to work on growing food via gardening, scavenging would only last so long. Maintaining a food and water supply would certainly become a number one priority in short order.

Weapons are always a third, you hope you never have to use them, but you need them in case. Might always makes right.

Last, gathering knowledge on different topics, such as medicine and science, would be important.

Lonely does not equal insane, and the loneliness would only motivate me to keep going.

Let's run through this. I wake up, there's nobody around me, and everything is deserted. My first thought is going to be "Where the fuck is everyone"

So, I start out. Now, there may not be any other survivors. But the thing is, I have no way of knowing that, except for living as long as I possibly can and wandering around searching for them. "But that's insane!" No more so then the scientist who studies theoretical physics knowing that it's highly unlikely they'll ever discover something unusual or solve a major problem in the entirety of their career, or the artist who seeks to make his magnum opus. An unreachable goal that people strive for is more common then you think.

"But what if you somehow miraculously know that there's no one else". Well, how did that knowledge get in my head? Now I have a new purpose; find out how the fuck the knowledge got into my head. I search databases, books, recordings, anything to find clues. Once again, I have a purpose.

"Ok, then an angel descends from the heavens and tells you that everyone is dead because fuck them." Then why was I left alive, and what the fuck did the angel have to do with this? Now I have two raison de etre, getting fit/find a weapon to kill an angel in revenge, and/or figure out why I was the only one spared.

First order of business would be to go to the local zoo, see a turtle I like and take him with me.
Shit gets lonely, Dogs die after 10 years, turtles will most likely outlive you.

Probably set up near the outskirts of town, nearby forest has food'a plenty and I'd probably be able to set up a greenhouse in a few days for any other plants I'd need. I'd pillage the stores in town and set up all the cans and pickles in a storage room. Preferrably underground, basement, Fritzl's summerhome, Sheogorath's Cheese Cave. Something along those lines.
Hunting deer and small game wouldn't be hard. I'd rather eat fresh meat as to not run out of rations. That, and it tastes better.

I've got a few recipes for explosives in my black book, along some sketches of traps and animal prints.

Well, what is else is there to do? I'd probably go insane after a few months of talking to my turtle. I'd probably have two more animals at my place, though.
Winter cometh and I'd still probably get some rabbits and maybe a deer or two. Fat would be scarce so I'd have to chow on canned stuff too.

Unless there's some strange twist to it all, it's just a cat and mouse type of thing with food and sanity, seeing as though electricity really isn't needed when you're ONE person.
Kinda makes it... stupid.

Regardless of how this goes, I, and most people, will always find a reason to survive, to push on and seek that unclimbable peak, because the human condition is to always strive for perfection, even though a perfect state is unattainable.

No bodies.

Everybody's feet got really hot (is anything else burned?),

and they don't rot. (Does food rot? Do people who died after the apocalypse rot?)

And the survivors apparently slept right through it or otherwise didn't notice it happening, and are apparently unharmed. (Will they manifest symptoms later?)

Hm. I'm going with supernatural causes here. The Rapture grabbed everybody, lifting them up to Heaven by their soles.

Richard Dawkins came in contact with God on the way up, and the resulting explosion killed both of them, and the spiritual blast seared the soles of those still on the way up. God's power no longer lifting them, they fell back to Earth. Other objects were not burned because they didn't have soles. The bodies don't rot because they've been touched by God, preserving them from corruption and impurity.

The protagonists remained because they'd sold their soles to Satan.

However, this evidence is anecdotal and most likely shouldn't be taken at face value in an emergency situation. Therefore, if you are interested, run some long-term experiments.

By the way, I'm the guy that you replied to, not the misanthrope.

"Insanity, craziness or madness is a spectrum of behaviors characterized by certain abnormal mental or behavioral patterns. Insanity may manifest as violations of societal norms, including a person becoming a danger to themselves or others, though not all such acts are considered insanity. In modern usage insanity is most commonly encountered as an informal unscientific term denoting mental instability, or in the narrow legal context of the insanity defense. In the medical profession the term is now avoided in favor of diagnoses of specific mental disorders; the presence of delusions or hallucinations is broadly referred to as psychosis. When discussing mental illness in general terms, "psychopathology" is considered a preferred descriptor."

Insanity has too many connotations attached to it to be a useful word any more. So what, specifically, are we talking about in the mental illness department? If it's a social disorder, it almost doesn't matter, because said person is the only on left.

And not caring about other people sounds more like sociopathy.

I know nothing about survival. I live in England and have probably made a load of bad decisions, but here's what I'd do:

Day 1: Print absolutely everything survival related I could. Laminate it. Hole-punch, ring binder folder, that shit is my bible. Aim to get as much as I possibly can.

Day 2: Check the net for local houses, places that are stated to have green energy, there are a few places I sort've know about that are almost tourist attractions because of their green-ness. I'd steal a nice car and head there to live.

Day 3: Take a van and make a few trips to the local supermarkets, enjoy all the exotic fruit 'n' veg whilst I can, meats etc. I would also stop off at the fishing/hunting supplies shop, pick up as much as I could, including any shotguns. (I can shoot fairly decently, good for birds etc.)

Day 4: Go down the streets of nearby houses filling up baths with water that I would take back in drums back to the 'base' over the next few weeks. Lots of clean water can't be a bad thing.

Day 5: Diesel, other survival gear, several sets of strong walking boots, everything that looks like it might be useful at some point, load it up.
I'd also get seeds etc and start a vegetable garden.

I'd spend the next few weeks hoarding supplies and learning as much as I could, making sure I got books on stuff too.

My mission would be to travel and see as many land marks as I could. I'd be limited to England/Wales/Scotland, but there's thousands of beautiful places to explore, I've always been a butterfly enthusiast - but I've never seen a purple emperor (at least when I was in England) and I would like to be able to take the time to properly look. I'd read a lot, which I think would be fantastic, and I'd be able to do it whilst sitting in my Aston Martin DB7 looking over the white cliffs of Dover.

Petrol going bad would be a pisser, but by that point I'd probably be a lot more used to surviving, so travelling on a mountain bike wouldn't be too bad.

Would this RP factor in the "fallout" that would occur from chemical, nuclear, and other plants once they're no longer maintained by people?

I think having to deal with clouds of poisonous gas or other hazards on your travels could spice it up.

I grab my bags and head into New Orleans.

I'll spend the rest of this year and the first half of the next armoring it and kitting it out with necessities and luxuries.

Then I go to all the animal shelters and pet stores and kennels in the area, and release all the animals. Ecosystem is boned anyway, might as well give them a fighting chance. I head into New Orleans and do the same at the Zoo and Aquarium, as best I can. I'll use my old 1980's hardcopy of the Anarhist Cookbook to rig up some remote detonating explosives to blow the doors on the enclosures for the dangerous animals once I'm a quarter mile upriver.
