    When I was writing it... I had just stopped playing Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.

    This may be a bit over the top (and it looks ridiculous), but I was thinking something along the lines of this. As for the bombs, I had in mind something like a Molotov cocktail because they didn't seem that complex but I also guess that humans would have already invented gunpowder as well. Nothing WW1-esque though (although running over elves in a tank would be amazing). My history knowledge is terrible so I can't give you a time period to base in.
    As for the other races, generally if they can do it with magic, they don't have the invention. If they can't do it with magic, then they have hand tools (or nothing at all). Note, generally. When in doubt, wing it, I guess.

    Could we have maybe some detail on the zombies? how sentient they are, are they blind and so on? Also will they be called zombies?

    A zombie's intellegence mainly depends on their race, although on average they're pretty stupid. The 'fresher', and better conditioned a zombie is, the more smarter, stronger, ect. it is. Some may even use tools and such. They have all their senses (provided they didn't have their eyes poked out and what not), just heavily degraded. They are running on basic survival instincts. As with what to call them, I really don't care. Zombie animals do exist.

    Alright, it seems we have early gunpowder. Plus a little bit of wacky da vinci contraptions!

    So a little history for those who care (mainly weaponry):

    Assuming its late 1400s to 1600s, when gunpowder was just beginning to appear in Europe and armies are starting to use them in their armies, we could expect to see some arquebuses and canons, but mainly people were using medieval weaponry. Italian and Spanish armies employed a sort of "pike and shot" formation which relied pikemen to prevent cavalry from overrunning the arquebus wielding infantry arrayed in a square. These early tactics were just beginning to show that use of massed firearms. The Italian armies employed every fifth man with a gun, while the others were armed with pikes, halberds, and other assorted medieval weaponry.

    Rifled weaponry didn't appear until the 15th century, and even then, most guns were smooth bore, because black powder fouled the rifling within the gun. It wasn't until the 1850s that rifled weaponry began to be more commonplace. However, many nations still employed squads of sharpshooters wielding rifles. Most notably during the american revolution where rifle regiments ambushed and killed many british officers with rifles during the 17th century.

    Archery was still much more accurate than any gun and could be fired at a much higher rate of fire. However, it takes a much longer time to train a man using a bow, than a gun.

    In regards to armor, the heavy plate and scale armor you often see on knights started to appear more commonly during the 15th centuries since the primitive guns were still weak enough that they couldn't penetrate it. Normal infantry started to forgo it, since it was expensive to make, and guns made anything short of plate armor obsolete.

    Oh god. At some point we'll reach to this place where we'll need a game-master but when Feet doesn't come online before that, we're screwed.

    Eh, gm, more like guide in my opinion for this rp. Idk where she is, but I don't think it would be that hard to improvise. We will just have to see since she hasn't been seen since Thursday.

    That's what I tried to say. Btw, it would be nice if you, others would try to be active more often because I don't want to roleplay all these 10 pages with Zeee alone... Again.

    Urrrg, sorry for not being online, my brother thought it would be absolutely hilarious to hide my laptop battery after his Assassin's Creed savefile, ahem, 'mysteriously' disappeared. I can't post tonight, but I will definitely post tomorrow.

    Why do we bother doing this stuff if no one is going to stay dedicated?

    This is getting ridiculous guys. I suggest we start the RP over again or make a new one.
