New Umbagog Shirt Coming: Need ConsentThe next promotional :iconumbagog: shirt is coming up, but I want to get some legal shenanigans out of the way (for your own and my protection).New Umbagog Shirt Coming: Need Consent by ~ESDA06
Here's the progress so far
NPCs will be automatically included, but I'd like to include player characters as well. However, as this picture will be put on posters and shirts (available for sale) I want to ensure that both you and I understand our legal rights in this situation. If you opt out, THAT'S PERFECTLY FINE. I sympathize if you don't want an image you worked hard on translated by me and then sold as shirt or poster or what have you. This is mostly to make sure I won't encounter a lawsuit in the future if there's a conflict between myself and another artist (say, if one of our creations becomes popular, I don't want a lawyer breathing down my neck for retroactive lo
Umbagog: Halloween Challenge"That cairn in the woods is haunted."Umbagog: Halloween Challenge by ~Droemar
Cameron peered at the mound Sean pointed out, beneath the oaks in the deepening gloom of the forest.
A few gasped. Most just shifted in silence, the hairs rising on the back of their necks. The Underground boys were very impressed.
Cam glared at Sean. "You're so full of shit, Sean. Everything's haunted with you. What, the zombies aren't real enough for you?"
"There are lights that flicker around it at night," Sean said with annoying solemnity. "The guards on the walltop see them. There are skulls there. Fresh ones. Anyone who goes near it dies."
"Like in that other haunted grave story of yours, where the girl sticks the knife in the grave and dies of fright when she pins her own dress? Let me guess. That one was true, too?"
Sean gave a small shrug. "I heard it was."
"Let's go," one of the Underground patrol said. Everyone was wide-eyed and pale in the oncoming dark. "Jack wants us back before nightfall."
"Dammit, you're all a bunch of babies
Questions for The UndergroundHow does Jack decide who does what? Or is he even in charge of that?mostly just tosses things at people and sees what they’re good at. Parker will advise him for better decisions if he throws you at something you’re NOT particularly fantastic at. but at the same time, Jack thinks most times you just need a push to do something you might not be confident about. Same as writing, he thinks everybody can write (the question is can you write well, and what needs to be taught?)How does Jack explain bad people going missing?To little little kids (not part of the Underground) he’ll just say he sent them away they won’t hurt anyone ever again. To those in the Underground, he’s blunt (if not sharp). Jack WANTS people to know the consequences of a person’s actions, and what those actions where. He wants you to know so you don’t repeat it. The exception would be if it brings attention to someone who doesn’t deserve the associatiQuestions for The Underground by ~ESDA06
Questions for The Community"How is the Community run? Who gives orders/jobs? How do you know what to do and when to do it?"Questions for The Community by ~ESDA06
Top of the heap is John (of course), though you’d be in a pickle if you ignored Sister Rachel’s demands.On the wall, there will be a rough chain of command stylized after military rankings (anyone know of actual security in wartime experience, i would love the help. former soldiers preferably). Guards on the Wall are low on the food chain of security (being they’re usually whoever is available and can hold a gun/not panic). They’ll answer to a more senior guard, aka anyone with more training. They’ll receive orders from a more senior guard if something more complicated than a single zombie roaming about or a new survivor makes its way to the wall. If there’s a question about what to do for something more complicated (like a large group or an assault by the living or dead) the senior guard will alert someone higher up, usually John on default.
Battle at ErrolBefore the zombie apocalypse, Errol was a town many people would pass through on their way to somewhere else. But for the people who lived there, it was home. The biggest draw for the town was their outdoors superstore called LL Cote. They have canoes, ATVs, and fishing gear, to name a few things. But they also have hunting equipment, like guns and bows and arrows.Battle at Errol by ~CPereira
Many of the people of Errol came together at LL Cote to use it as a barracks to protect and defend against the zombie hordes. They parked their cars in a half circle in front of the entrance and families were encouraged to take shelter at the store.
As the story goes, a caravan of survivors rode up one day and asked for weapons. The people of Errol refused. The survivors insisted but residents kicked them out of the store.
Depending on who you ask, what happened next changes. In one version, the survivors attacked and killed everyone there. In another, a few survivors tried to sneak in and take the weapons at night but were
Umbagog Vacation Log7/5/12Umbagog Vacation Log by ~CPereira
We have started our journey to Umbagog. The trip took us up the White Mountain State Park area, heading north on the 93. Upon a neighbor's recommendation, we stopped at the Flume to pick up travel brochures. Being short on time, however, we decided not to enter the park itself and went on our way to Whitefield.
There is the slight chance--if you follow Miranda's challenges--that you will recognize Whitefield. Miranda was born and raised there until zombies arrived and the family left for the Community in Gorham. Whitefield, to my surprise, is actually quite a bit smaller than Gorham in spite of being a main hub for a lot of traffic coming from five directions. It circles around a small town center with a few outlying houses here and there. There's a cannon and a war memorial and a few shops and a church or two. Oh, and I think the school is K-12. Miranda must have been very bored there. We stopped for ice cream at Jack's Snack Shop (I laughed at the coincidence) and Erin

Umbagog is a zombie focused creative writing and illustration group modeled after and .
Members create characters that explore Umbagog's world, completing challenges to advance and explore their imaginations. There are minimum standards so that each artist or writer improves their storytelling skills according to their current level.
There's no time limit to normal challenges, so Umbagog is a lower stress roleplaying environment than the usual chatroom or forum media. Instead the emphasis is on quality, personal advancement, and group character development.
