Crisis (Interest Check)

a topic in Interest Checks, a part of the RPG forum.

Thinking about starting a roleplay, but don't have the idea completely finished? Post it here, not in the main OOC forum!

Crisis (Interest Check)

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Script on Thu Oct 01, 2009 12:13 pm

Welcome to Crisis, a survival horror roleplay with a difference.



In this roleplay, you as the roleplayer know no more than any of the characters. There will be no out of character depiction of the coming events, I won’t be telling you if the crisis is an Earthquake, a zombie attack, or the apocalypse itself.

For that reason, this isn’t going to be a meaty OOC thread, the only information you’ll be getting is the setting and the rules. So let’s get started on them, shall we?

The events of this roleplay are set on an alternate Earth, in a city known only as Terra Alpha, a modern utopia of cleanliness and law. There is a strong police presence throughout the city, and as a result the crime level is at almost nil. The year is 2014, and technology is very similar to as it is today, nothing really amazing has been developed in the last five years; no miraculous answer to global warming, hunger or poverty, no alien contact.

The city itself resembles New York, with a large central park known as The Green, with the exception of being entirely island based. While the shore on the other side of the water is visible in many locations, nobody in the city is allowed in, or out. But nobody has ever, in all of living memory, left the city or entered from outside, and as far as you’re concerned there is no real reason to – you have everything you could need within, or brought in by the government. There are tunnels and bridges out of the city, which are heavily guarded 24/7, and the only traffic in and out are the police and governmental vehicles.

The government is led by a benevolent man named Daniel Gray, who appears on City Television on every holiday to greet the city, and keeps the citizens informed on the activities of the police and government. Besides the confinement to the city, citizens are allowed similar freedom to any other democratic city. There is a governmental opposition, freedom of speech, and all of that – just no reason to speak or vote against the current leader.

You don’t know much more than that, and in all honesty you probably don’t care.

Which brings us nicely on to the subject of ‘you’.

Your character is an ordinary citizen of Alpha Terra, with an ordinary life and an ordinary job. I cannot stress that enough, and so rather than just suggesting things, I’m going to lay down a list of things you CANNOT be, or that there cannot be more than a certain number of.

You cannot be:

- A government worker
- A governmental security officer (elite police)
- A ferryman (goes out of the city to get resources)
- F.B.I, C.I.A, or anything like that
- Ex military (at all, no medics, pilots, nothing)

There are limited spaces as:

- Emergency services (No more than three overall, my character is a police officer so only two more members of the emergency services allowed. This includes police, paramedics (though you can still be a doctor), fire-fighters, etc.)
- Celebrities (Only one, and cannot be an existing celebrity. You have to make up everything about their rise to fame, their career, etc.
- Sports players (Professional, that is – there are only tiny leagues of anything within the city)
- Mechanics, engineers, plumbers, electricians, etc. (Only two allowed)




Beyond the above, feel free to choose any career that makes sense.



Okay, so that's the basic premise. Interest?

This sounds fantastic! I'd love to join in as a school teacher, if I could. ^^ I do adore a good survival horror and one that will be a complete surprise? Sounds like my kind of roleplay. ^^ I do consider myself semi-literate, as sometimes proper punctuation is a little difficult for me, and I tend to write anywhere between two to seven paragraphs a post. {This depends on how much my characters end up doing and how much of the character itself has been elaborated on previously.}

The school teacher would most likely be teaching second grade or below, in case that makes much of a difference as to the acceptance of myself. ^^;

I have been astonished that Men could die Martyrs for religion
I have shudder'd at it - I shudder no more
I could be martyr'd for my Religion
Love is my religion
I could die for that
I could die for you.
My Creed is Love and you are its only tenet.

Okay! Good interest takeup so far, going to wait for at least two more people before I post the OOC - but mentally noted all the aforementioned reservations, and approved them!

Neat.
I have a right to my anger, and I don't want anybody telling me I shouldn't be, that it's not nice to be, and that something's wrong with me because I get angry.
