The 25th Hunger Games

The 25th Hunger Games

0 INK

Before everything happened in the books, there was the Twenty-Fifth Hunger Games. This time however, there is a huge twist - the tributes have to live together for nine months before the Games themselves. {Literate RPers only, please.}

Introduction

Image
PANEM.

Obviously based on the Hunger Games. I'm only part of the way through book three though, so God help me, if you ruin it for me, you won't want to live! :) You don't need to have read the books or have watched the film to join - everything you need is here.

A History Lesson

After the destruction of the modern country of USA, the region of Panem was created. The region was divided into fourteen districts - the Capitol, and Districts One to Thirteen. Each district specializes in a certain industry to supply the tyrannical Capitol, ranging from luxury items, to fishing, to coal mining. The Capitol is extremely rich, and lavish, and those there live in the life of luxury - as you got further down the districts, the situations worsen. There is less money, less food, and the people get thinner.

Twenty-five years before our roleplay begins, many of the Districts decided to rebel against the Capitol, and this resulted in the "Dark Days." It isn't known how long the rebellion went one for, or how many people were lost, but eventually, the Districts were over thrown, and the Capitol had won. They also blew up District Thirteen, and the rest of the Districts were also punished; Every year, a male and a female between the ages of twelve and eighteen are picked out and are forced to compete in a competition known as "The Hunger Games."




The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games is a tournament aired all over Panem once a year, and occurred as a punishment to those in the rebellious districts. A male and a female between the ages of twelve and eighteen are called up to represent their district as a "tribute", and are thrown into an area where they have to fight for the death - only one comes out alive. The Hunger Games do not only represent the oppression and control that the Capitol has over the Districts, but it is also an entertainment program. The tributes are put through a grueling interview session, various make overs, and training exercises before they are thrown into the ring. A previous winner from the District is usually assigned to coach the new tributes into winners, and they are also given specific stylists that stay with them throughout the preparation for the Games.

However, this year is a Quarter Quell, a phenomenon that occurs ever twenty-five years, where something extra is thrown into the Games, to make them a little more exciting.




Our Story

Our story begins with the group of twenty four tributes arriving at Capitol Manor, a large house on the outskirts of the Capitol. In this years Quarter Quell, the tributes have been sentenced to live in a house with the other tributes for nine months, before the actual Games begin. No one tribute will be able to avoid talking to others, and this means that friendships will develop, and maybe even relationships or extreme enemies. The entire goings on of the house will be televised to the audiences in Panem, and all the usual activities such as training and interviews will still happen over time. This year, all of the tributes have to be between the ages of sixteen and eighteen, again another twist on the usual Games. All of the tributes this year will be trained in the art of sword and spear wielding, as well as practical survival techniques, but they also have their own special talents.

Zyker Lintsy


Zyker found it hard to keep focus on what situation was at hand with the beauty in front of him. It seemed like the kiss on the forehead and the arm placement were ritual for the two, so when the space came between him the questionable look appeared on his face. "Zyker Obediah Linsty. What the hell happened to your hair?" With a smirk washing across his face, he found himself shaking his head before licking his lips. A habit that he had picked up a few months ago when the games were getting closer. With the memories of before the games coming forward, he found himself zoning out.

He found himself in his home before it was destroyed by the storm that came through District Twelve. Zyker had been helping his mother cook with the few goods they were lucky enough to get for that week. His father was promised a promotion in the next several months, so the Lintsy's were celebrating the good news even if the raise wouldn't come into effect until much later. His mother had asked Zyker to invite Saffron over, but he had refused because he didn't want to complicate their relationship. Now he wished he had spent as much time with the girl that was still standing with her hand on her hip.

With the reality of the present smacking him in the face, Zyker grabbed Saffron's hand, pulling it off her hips. "You know you like it.." He said as he brought her back into his arms for another hug. The seriousness of the haircut came to mind as he pulled her back a small distance. "What can I say? I'm game ready." He tried to seem happy with the phrase that had come from his lips, but all it did was make the air more dense. Any mention of the game made him want to yell at the top of his lungs until he passed out just to escape reality for a few moments. With a small piece in front of her face, Zyker found himself removing the strand from the fellow twelve's face.

It seemed his hand had lingered to long as a dash of color seemed to fill Saffron's face, making him feel as though his hand made the situation awkward for the two. He put on another smile before, tucking his hand into his pocket. "You look beautiful, Saffy." He wanted to pull his hand out of his pocket, but he knew he'd touch her again. He always wanted to touch her. The idea seemed very off for him because he'd never wanted to be close to anybody, but his family. Saffron was family, but much much more. He wanted to wrap her up and escape from the hell they were walking into. He felt the ripping in his chest as his mind constantly played out Saffron's death. He would have to die first because he knew that Saffron would be able to continue on without him. He was a different story. He loved the girl standing in front of him, but he'd never let her know because then she would be in the same predicament.

"Ready to go?" He said as he slide his lose hand into her's, letting his thumb massage the back on her's. He looked down at the two hands before letting go. He started walking towards the dining hall, hoping she would follow. He needed to stop the thoughts that seemed to work in and out of her brain. He didn't want her to see the fear in his eyes because he knew that she'd know every one of them as her own. Their deaths. Being alone in the end. Never seeing their family again. Never seeing twelve again. He smirked at the thought of twelve because that wasn't actually so bad to go without. With the smirk on his face, he turned back towards Saffron. "Come, dear."
