Every good RPG has a storyline. And before we get rolling I suppose that we should come up with what's happening so far. Obviously we'll need to have the FVZA come back from disbandment, but we should probably come up with a reason why it's back, and how it all happened. What's the state of the FVZA? Any developments in the world that've cause a change in how we view the undead?

And now that I'm out of the admin chair I'll give my ideas of the story thus far.

I think that we can assume that without the FVZA, vampire and zombie populations would've steadily made a comeback after 1975. So we can use that as a backdrop, that the undead have steadily started to come back. We can say that this prompts Congress to bring the FVZA back as just a small agency that's got a very small budget.

I had one idea that featured remenats of the Order of the Broken Cross breaking into the Santa Rosa Institue in order to steal zombie blood, and then using it on school children while they go around the country biting people and eventually biting a fictional senator. Those ideas could possibly be used later on in the RPG once it gets up and rolling.

But anyhow I'd prefer for the FVZA to simply be a small underfunded agency that has to deal with a problem that isn't widely acknowledge by the public. So although we'd be an official agency, most of the public wouldn't know about us.


EDIT: Another thing I just thought of was weaponry and equipiment. I was thinking the .45 cal M1911, since although the rest of the feds use 9mm a .45 would give us more power against vampires and it gives us a more retro feel.

For assault type weapons I figured we may as well use M-16's or M-14's as our standard rifle, and maybe a tactical shotgun for close quarters work.

I dig the underfunded / realistic weapons idea. Nobody wielding katanas or battleaxes or anything like that.

Hmm, well I'm in on the underfunded agency thing, but I'm skeptical about the M16.

Max Brooks has pointed out that the M4 and even the M1 Garand have much higher zombie Kill-to-Resource ratios than the typical M16. I think the FVZA would definitely take this into account.

I'll agree with you on the M-1 Garand, that'd be a pretty good rifle. The M-4 however is a fully automatic carbine, and the 5.56 ammo tends to overpenetrate for use in close quarters around civilians. For carbine work like that I think a good option would be the M1928 SMG since it's compact, rugged, and would use .45 cal ammo.

I agree with the underufnded thing. I doubt the FVZA would be highly funded when outbreaks are rare.

True and it would be something if some of the new agents were people that had a choice
Dissapear into the FVZA or dissapear into the Prison system.

Ok I think we've pretty much agreed that we'll be the poor stepchild of the federal government. Now we just need to agree on a few weapons, and maybe throw around a few ideas for a first mission or something.

For weaponry I'm going to suggest that we keep things fairly simple, with a couple of inexpensive specialty items. I feel that our weaponry shouldn't be too expensive, and we should probably go for calibur that's not too uncommon.

For the standard rifle I've rethought the idea of the M-16 and I'm suggesting either the M-14, or the Winchester 94. The 94 can be chambered in .30-30 and .45 I believe, but I'm not entirely sure which calibur would be best. Personally I think that using .45 might be a good idea since we'd have a common ammo type to use with the M1911's. I'm pretty sure that it holds aproximatley 6 rounds at once.

We'd naturally need a handgun to use as a concealed weapon, and for a backup weapon. So as I've mentioned, I'm nominating the M1911. That being a .45 calibur pistol that saw service through both world wars, korea, and vietnam. Being that it packs a good punch, the ammo doesn't overpenetrate as much as 9mm, and it's a very reliable weapon I think it perfectly suits the FVZA. Also it's got style.

I also feel that we'll need a shotgun, probably a 12 gauge police or military model. Two good shotguns that I've heard about are the Remington 11-86 Police, and the Mossberg 590 Tactical. From what I've heard both are highly reliable, although the Mossberg holds an additional round in the magizine at the expense of making the weapon two inches longer. Either way a shotgun would be useful for stuff in situations where we'd be very close to our opponents such as indoors, and it'd also be handy for using as a master key.

For the final firearm I'm going to suggest that we keep a small stock of M1928's, which are basically your famed Tommy gun. Since that'll keep us using .45 ammunition, and give us a well tested weapon I think we'd have an excellent SMG. Although an SMG is pretty useless against zombies it could be handy against vampires.


Then there's the issue of some additional equipment and such. First thing we'd want to look into is nightvision and/or thermal goggles. If we feel that such goggles might go past a realistic budget then we should at least get some good flashlights. Also, something along the lines of mace or pepperspray could be a pretty good last ditch weapon for use on vampires. Plus it could be handy if we wanted to take a vampire alive.

And finally we should get some ideas for atire. This is sort of a big questions. Should we enforce some sort of basic dresscode and be realistic? Or should we allow free reign with trenchcoats and all?

If there is a 'dress code' for the agents like the FBI (do they even have a dress code there?). Then it would have to be something that is inconspicuous but other agents would be able to look and be like 'Ah, another agent.'

Also another question I'd like to raise is should we expand the actual RPG section of the site? Two boards is a little confining to me.

High concentartion mace is going to be needed for last ditch effort (come on its on the site.)

Hey cyber do you know where the picture is of the field ops clothing? I remember seeing a pic of it somewhere.

I'm going to go look around on the website for that sort of thing if I can find it.

Anyhow after consulting STARS on the main forum I'm going to stand by the recomendation of the .30-30 calibur Winchester 94's, and the .45 cal M1911's.

I think that the Vampire and Zombie Viruses (and werewolve virus in some cases) should have become stronger over the past, and the plague is spreading yet again. Hitting cities, and even the arid Sahara and Outback and causing worldwide panic

Personally I'm not too huge on the whole concept of mass panic. At least not right off the bat. Panic situations tend to lead to lot's of funding, media attention, panic, congressional insight, other forms of politics, and just not something that I think we should start off with right off the bat. Maybe that'd be something to try as a plotline down the road, but I'd like to keep the world kind of quiet.

But for now I found some of the stuff off the main page. First we've got the O'Malleys, which is basically just a fancy cattle prod modified for use on vampires;

Along with that high concentration mace;

Also there's the Night Stalker;

The night stalker is a weapon that I'd love to see implemented sooner or later, maybe as a reward for a writer of the month or something. I'd like to here what you guys think on the idea of unlocking weapons.

And here's what Roncas might've been talking about. Here's the recon guy diagram;

Here's a picture of the assault team;

Keep in mind that the picture of the assault team isn't too detailed so that leaves us a lot of room to get creative.

Here's the shadow (ninja like guy);

And finally, we have some guys interviewing a witness;

Alright, if I'm head of Gunnery, forgetting Zippo we do need to keep things realistic, and thus, I think we should outline the guns and whatnot, starting with the M1928 and the Garand.

We need to reinforce the whole "Poor Stepchild" thing and remember that even if the Garand is still used, there's no way we'll be getting a M1928. I'd say we still keep things realistic, and thus suggest the following weapons:

Rifles(Standard, not Assault):
SIG SG550-1 Sniper Rifle
Semi-Automatic
5.56MM NATOs
This is a highly-accurate semi-automatic Sniper Rifle. Not having to deal with the bolt action is simply an added bonus. The SG550-1 is as effective in Close Quarters as it is at ranges. This is a gun we need.

AW Accuracy International Sniper Rifle
Bolt-Action
7.62MM NATOs
This also is a highly-accurate rifle, albeit bolt-action. However, the justification for the bolt action comes from its extreme power. Being able to blow the head and soldiers off of a zombie at 500 yards just shows the greatness of such a rifle. Although not effective in Close-Combat, the range more than makes up for it. Of any of the three rifles pick this one.

Steyr Scout
Bolt-Action
7.62/5.56MM NATOs
Of the three rifles, this is the most accurate. The Scout is one of the most reliable and-fast firing bolt-action rifles currently in production. As well as low rapport, this gun is very versatile and effective at 400 yards. If you want strength and reliability, this is the gun to go.

Assault Rifles:

M16A2
Fully Automatic/Semi-Automatic
5.56MM NATOs
The M16, although holding less glamour than the M4, is actually a much more effective rifle at distances, and is still used within the Military. Tracing back to its roots in Vietnam, the M16 was one of the great assault rifles of the time.

M4A1
Fully Automatic/Semi-Automatic
5.56MM NATOs
The M4 is probably the most popular assault rifle of today, on reputation alone. Seen in many movies with the various add-ons, such as the M203 Grenade Launcher(None of which we'll get for now) The M4 is effective at distances, just not as much as the M16.

SMG
I'm just going to cover one for now.

MP5
Fully Automatic
9x19 Parabellum
The MP5 is the SMG you've seen most in moves, however, it lives up to its reputation. With the extremely good aim along with the amazing power output. Holding standard 30-round magazines, along with extremely low recoil. However, the MP5 is typically better suited for Specialized Government Agencies(Hint Hint) or police Forces, not military.

For legitmacy purposes the Armory should- At this point- Only contain government issued weapons as well as explosive devices(i.e.; Frags, Flashbangs) Not things like AKs or Katanas. We are trying to be a legitimate Government program, not some underhanded god-supplied force, else we wouldn't need that much funding.

Maybe we should use that timeline from the other site and if it has anything people don't want in it we could just omit stuff.

Although you have good points on the M1928, I've heard that MP5's a pretty expensive too. So if price is the concern then I guess SMG's are kind of ruled out in general for us.

Anyhow since you tend to have good judgement on rifles, I'm going to trust your judgement on the rifles and nominate the AW Accuracy International Sniper Rifle. But for now I'm starting have reservations about assault rifles considering that we're more of a police agency. I'm thinking the M-16 would be good, but I'm thinking we should only use them in the case of a large assault or something big like that.

Why not something easily acquirable like a .308 hunting rifle or a shotgun from a gun store or pawn shop. It would probably be bought at the agents expense, but it would be worth it, and that could quicken the process of arming all the agency.

MP5s actually aren't that expensive. I'd place it at below $400, as an AK goes for $500.

The actual State of Wyoming currently has legalized Automatic weapons for Hunting so long as they have silencers- Ipso facto, MP5s couldn't be much more or much less than a good standard shotgun or rifle.

Besides- We're government funded- Which means we'd be supplied with Military weapons without having to actually buy any, as it would be included with the overall government budget, not ours.

The Winchester's great if you've got a couple dozen zeds at long enough range, but I have to say that we really need a true, semi-auto carbine for larger concentrations. If you're in the middle of a white zone with a class 3+ outbreak, taking the time to reload a 6-shot bolt-action rifle is not going to be a viable option.

Once again, I'd nominate the semi-auto version of the M4A1, assuming the Garand is out of the question.

I also strongly agree with the choice of the M1911 as our handgun. Power and class- that's what we should focus on.
