If you’ve been following this workshop, you probably have a decent rough draft for a character. You know his or her name, what he does for a living, and how he acts. More or less. You may not feel comfortable in his skin yet, but not to worry, that comes with today’s post.

Instead of advising you on how best to step inside the skin of your character, we are going to conduct a small roleplay in the comments. Please use the character you developed in this workshop. It’s okay if a sci-fi character meets up with a present day earth Pastor. It’s okay if the situation is so far removed from what your character would normally encounter it’s almost laughable. Your only goal is to stay as true to your character as possible. ^^ Er…without killing everyone in the room. That’s not really fair now is it?

Here is the story line:

Your character wakes up in a dark alley surrounded by all the other characters, also waking up. The streets appear to be abandoned. A message written in dark red on the alley wall reads, “Repent! The end is near!”

Shuffling by, what appears to be a zombie is groaning its way in the opposite direction. Yes my friends, it’s the zombie apocolypse.

Have fun!

(Oh yeah, hubbie picked the theme so it was as much of a surprise for me as everyone else.)
