Mymyjp, Ln X, MilitantRadical, jmsepe, tankmank: Thanks all!!


Note: this setting takes place in alternate universe...


Town of Brookville

June 1997, an unknown outbreak hit the Brookville town somewhere in a midwest state in Nuevo Rico, thousand of lives hit by it. This outbreak involve an unknown fungi later known as a species of mutant cordyceps causing the infected host to become hyper-aggressive and later even started to attack each other. By a week this outbreak infected the whole state and causes more than 2 million people infected and leaves only few survivor.


The survivor of the outbreak must reach out from the state without being bitten by the infected...

August 1997, the outbreak successfully controlled by isolating the whole state and forbids anyone in or out from the state which causes many controversies. eventhough so, by continuing isolating the whole state, the infection case totally reduced but there're some quarantines due to the suspects of infection this leads to the scientist to work hardly in order to make vaccines and medicine.


Maureen Summer, one of the member of research team

June 1998, A team of research getting into the infected state in order to gain the sample for the vaccines. in the end, they lost half of their team but they able to create vaccines. Though they found the fact that there are group of people inside the state which survive by making martial law inside which is actually hostile toward anyone come into their territory even those people uninfected.

April 2001, Proposal made to nuke the infected state in order to eliminate the future threat but this proposal instantly rejected by anyone due to the fact of some survivor still living inside.

September 2008 - February 2009, A military operation acted as an attempt made in order to retrieve the survivor to get out from the infected state though this operation fully failed with only very few people made it out alive. They also find out that the infection mutated once again and the vaccines for somehow only half successful this time. Unfortunately in one of their utility, there is a spore contain this parasitic fungus bringing the spore out from the state. The spore later infected a whole flight full of passenger from Matriks city airspace in Nuevo Rico toward Shikotsu island (死骨島) an archipelago islands north of Nakahara which home toward 3.8 millions people causing a new outbreak which can't be handled with the earlier vaccine.


Shikotsu City, the largest city of the island in April 2009, as the survivor try to remain uninfected by this outbreak. The city now is REALLY DEAD full with undead with only some survivor. The city continue to suffer and continue to lost it life atmosphere.

April 2009, the whole island now infected by this infection which lead local government to fully isolate the island and not allow anyone to enter and exit from the island.


Author note: I don't know if I would make this into a series but I might make another update relate to this one. But actually I've plot the entire series of these chronologies since 2013 and make it into a series of stories


- Shikotsu (死骨) means: Dead bone

- Story heavily influenced by The Last of Us
