Life of Crime

Life of Crime

0 INK

A gritty play-by-post RPG. In Life of Crime, empires can be built and destroyed, and actions have real consequences.

1,296 readers have visited Life of Crime since IndieMind created it.

Introduction

Welcome to Life of Crime!

This is a realistic, modern, play-by-post RPG in which you can do just about anything you want to... with a twist! Possessions such as money, drugs, vehicles, houses, and even NPCs, must be earned! You don't get to just write them into your worlds. Instead, you must request them at the end of the post in which you acquire them, and then a Game Master will let you know if your request has been approved or denied. This means that it can be difficult to accumulate vast wealth or resources as a player, but the players who do manage this will have much more real and significant power.

Additionally, actions in this game have consequences. If you do something -- say, rob a drug dealer -- you might have to face the reverberations of that action later one when a Game Master forces an event upon you! Player characters can be killed, by Game Masters and other players.

Outside of that, the world is your playground. Form or join factions, or operate solo. Play as a gangster, mobster, cop, or even civilian! Do whatever you want, but remember -- you're never safe!

Toggle Rules

  • Possessions Must Be Roleplayed For: if you want money, or an NPC, or weapons or houses or anything, really-- you can get it! But you can't just write it into your story. Instead, you must roleplay acquiring the item and request it at the end of your roleplay. A Game Master will then approve or disapprove of your requests!
  • Don't God-Mod: don't write for another character or their NPCs. Let them decide how to interact with you.
  • Write in Third Person: it helps keep the game more organized and easy to read.
  • No Text Talk: write to the best of your ability.

Use the following Character Sheet when designing your character:
Code: Select all
[b]Name:[/b]
[b]Nickname(s):[/b]
[b]Age:[/b]
[b]Place of Birth:[/b]
[b]Appearance:[/b]
[b]Brief History:[/b]

[b][u]Inventory:[/u][/b]
(Put any possessions you want to start with here, including money, drugs, guns, NPCs, real estate, and vehicles. They will be approved or disapproved. You will have a chance to earn more items later on, but you must roleplay for them... this is the ONLY chance you will have to create a starting inventory.)
