About Us
Welcome to Blood & Bone, a site that's a mixture of post-apocalyptic, dystopian, and virus outbreak/survival. We're a mature, intermediate-advanced writing site that deals with darker themes, action-based plotting, and character development. It's the year 2095. 85 years have passed since the virus DraC-2 first appeared in society, ravaging the world and infecting humans indiscriminately. The Infected, virus-mutated humans that had uncanny similarities to classical vampires, began to tear down the fragility of society in massive strides until nothing was left. Stronghold became the last known surviving city in western North America, ruled over by a dystopian Military thirsty for control and power. The Infection is something they have learned is a part of life.

Quarantine Zone
128 Posts    11 Threads Stronghold
Stronghold is the last known standing city in western North America. It is a sprawling cityscape of closely-built structures, constructed for ease of defense and safety rather than beauty and luxury. Massive walls surround the city, imitating a fortress or guarded compound. Barricaded gates serve as the only two entry points into the city, and both are heavily guarded by Military checkpoints. The city is built with a disparity between the rich, inner sections, and the poor, ravaged, and often times dangerous outer limits. One thing is certain: Stronghold was designed to keep quarantined humans in, and Infected out.

The land that is directly outside of Stronghold is still regularly patrolled by the Military, as it the most heavily populated with abandoned buildings that may attract Infected. Many of the buildings and structures were once part of Stronghold, but the decision was made to leave them out when the walls were originally built. Because of the Military's protection and the structural integrity of the buildings, many drifters often find shelter here, even if most areas are void of supplies. Large, open areas between the different buildings also makes travel difficult without a vehicle, most roads worn down and hard to use.
11 Posts    3 Threads Abandoned Town
While there are many small towns and hamlets dotting the area surrounding Stronghold, there is one town in particular that most people are aware of. While it has no official name, simply given the handle 'Abandoned Town', it is most notable for the population of drifters that eventually find their way here. It is the largest town that is still relatively intact, supplies still readily found in Infectd-cleared areas and buildings that are strong and protective against Infected attacks. The Military often makes their presence here when hunting down Infected nests, but otherwise it is home to dozens of drifters.
50 Posts    5 Threads The Junkyard
The only other well-quarantined area besides Stronghold, the Junkyard is a guarded encampment controlled by Eclipse. What was once a junkyard for old vehicles is now a ramshackle base built out of found scrap and stolen equipment. Steel walls surround the camp, with rows of barbed-wire pitched on top and staked moats surrounding the entirety of it. While not as safe as Stronghold, Eclipse have the firearms necessary to keep Infected at bay. Only one gate leads into the Junkyard, a massive sign hanging above the entrance with the phrase 'Fuck Off' built out of scrap. Just in case the Military comes snooping.
7 Posts    1 Threads No-Man's Land
No-Man's Land is the name given to the area that is outside of the Military's reach. It is far from any kind of dystopian civilization, and sometimes is considered a haven for drifters. However, because of the lack of Military presence, Infected roam the land in substantial numbers. Most of No-Man's Land is just open area with rolling hills and dots of trees, a large highway cutting through most of it. There is an extreme lack of civilization, with any kind of buildings few and far between. Most of the drifters who choose to live in No-Man's Land are choosing to live off the land, regularly fighting off Infected.
26 Posts    2 Threads Past, Future & AU
History is always fascinating, whether it's taken place one hundred years ago, or simply one hundred seconds ago. Things that have happened in the past can be found here, as well as things that might take place in an alternate universe or even the future. As long as it follows the site's rules, you can write anything to your heart's contentment in here; feel free to explore any possibility! There are specialized tags inside here for past, future, and alternate universe threads, so feel free to use those if you would like. Just remember that only past threads are considered site-canon; AU and even future threads are not.

Any announcements, updates, or other important things to note about changes around the site will be posted within this forum. This is strictly for admin-related OOC announcements; anything that is IC-based can be found inside the Character Central board. It's important you always keep up-to-date on anything posted. Any new thread created will also be linked to in the header.
35 Posts    17 Threads Character Central
This is the place to come for anything IC-related, including anything that concerns your characters. There are different sub-boards inside that players can use to host different information about their characters, as well as IC-related admin news. The general rule of thumb is if it's related to your characters, it's probably in here; keeps everything nice and tidy, and together.
15 Posts    7 Threads Site Support
Claims, account deactivations and/or reactivations, general maintenance, extended absences, and anything else that is directly related to helping the site run smoothly can be posted in here. If you have a question or suggestion that you would like to let the staff know about, this is also the board in which you can do so. Simply make a new thread and we'll look it over.
6 Posts    3 Threads OOC Community
This chillout board where members can hang out and talk about anything that's exclusively OOC-related, or at the very least, has very little to do with IC. Games, both member-created as well as staff-run can be found inside this board. There's also a place to look for graphics or post up a studio of your own! Have fun in here, just remember to be respectful of the site rules.
412 Posts    76 Threads Thread Archives
In order to keep the rest of the forum clean and free of clutter, all threads that are old and no longer in use can be found inside here, compiled into their appropriate board. Any IC threads that are found two months without a reply will be moved in here, as well as anything requested to be moved in Maintenance. Any thread that is in archives can easily be moved out again.
