Well, if you think about it, there are no guns. It's like in... call of cthulu, even though guns aren't that common players will do ANYTHING to justify having a gun. Likewise here everyone will do anything to justify having a blade, but here is something else you have to take into consideration, in call of cthulu having a gun makes you feel safe, but doesn't do anything in the long run. Same principle here. Even though we have a blade, will it help us? Possibly not. Unlike the walking dead series, here we have pokemon. Steel types, rock types, huge pokemon like Gyrados, flying pokemon like Pidgeot. Let me ask you... against a flock of zombie birds... will that blade do anything? In the long run, will it really help? Sure, at the beginning everyone will feel safe, but in the end no matter what weapon you have, you won't be safe.
Every SU I've gotten so far has included the main character owning some sort of a blade.....What happened to bashing creature's heads in with a baseball bat or a pipe? Why is everybody suddenly a Samurai?
Yeah, anyway, on posting before you have your su started, most do it because they are busy or don't have the time to think up an SU on the spot. Some times they need to juggle ideas, or like in a case such with me, I'll put up a post to be reserved because I have tons of classes and tests and if I don't have the time to write up my SU, I let the GM know that I am interested. It's just something we do here at PC.
Eh, if it doesn't then you can always try resubmitting like in a month or two. Another thing is that right now people are in school and are busy, so some times are better than others to submit an rp. All depends. For instant, I had my own rp start in the summer and got about a good ten people signed up that had free time. All depends on timing and whether people have a full schedule or not.
Hey, I had a question on your rp. Will it be like in the game where the dead are attracted by sound and loud noises? Anyway, just wanted to say... AWESOME IDEA! I not only have the video game and tv show, but now a roleplay! :D
