Create Your Character

After you have registered, you will receive a copy of the Rulebook, which will help you select your Character’s special skills and zombie weapons. You can then create your own personalized history. This history, if submitted at least six weeks before an event, may be considered when our plot writers create the plots for our individual campers. Please note that we do reserve the right to use your Character history, story ideas, and rule suggestions for plot and game purposes at our camp.

Remember that some of the best sources of ideas are stories about World Mythology, History and Literature. Since our plot writers base all of our creatures and many of our artifacts on actual references in history, literature and mythology, you should consider the folklore and history of various cultures instead of making up creatures or artifacts in your history.


Here is a list of questions to consider when writing your Character’s history:

  • Where did you come from?
  • What is your family or cultural lineage?
  • Are you looking for something or someone from your past? Are they looking for you?
  • What is your code or your symbol?
  • Are you a wandering Defender on a mission?
  • What are your Character’s goals? What motivates you?

To submit your character history, fill out the form below:

Character History Form

We would love to hear about you and/or your character! Fill this form out and it will be sent to our plot writers so they can know more about the Defenders of Outpost 379. If you are under the age of 13, please have a parent fill this form out with you.
  • You can choose to play yourself as a visitor from modern day to Outpost 379... or a character born in a remote lands where Outpost 379 resides. Middle names can be added in the First Name space.
  • This is the email where we should direct any questions we have about your history. Only provide your personal email if you have your parent's permission.
    If you haven't been to our camp before and you are local to us, please visit the Guard Up facility in Burlington, MA to try a free Nerf night.
  • If so, what's your friend's real name (first and last) and character name (if you know it).
  • What was your life like before you came to Outpost 379? Tell us about your friends - and your enemies. Any mysteries or secrets about your past?
  • Is your character on a quest to find something or someone? What is important to you or your character?
  • Describe your land and the people within it.
  • Do you want to be in Strike Team? or a Recon? Perhaps R&D... or Spec Ops? Why?
  • These pertain to your real abilities as a person, not a characer. Example: Do you know how about DNA or another certain subject? Do you speak another language? Are you a fast runner? etc.
  • Write here what doesn't fit above.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
