Note: This is a basic fight, loot, inventory RPG. No magic, no superpowers, no unnecessary stats. Find a gun, kick some butt and survive. If you want a good, simple conflict RPG, this is it.

It's been five month since you've seen sunlight. Your cell is concrete top to bottom with a single barred door and a barred window facing another cell. There are three others, soldiers like you, and they're dying as slowly as you are. All you know is your name, your life and your remaining strength.

For weeks the guards have ignored you. They have provided you with food twice a day and have buried six men, all previous members of your team. They are armed and have never made a mistake. Until today. One of the men faked his death, and the guard was foolish enough to leave the door open when he went to drag him out. He was strangled and his keys and guns were stolen. The prisoner unlocks your cell and speaks theses words:

"We escape this hole today. You can join the three of us and we can shoot our way out, or you can go alone. I will not harm you, but if you come with us, I will give you a gun. So. Strike, or stealth?"

You respond with a single word.
Strike or Stealth:
------

Name:
Age: (between 20 and 30)
Class: (Hand-To-Hand, Soldier, Sniper. More information below)
Bio: (Optional. Two or three sentences will be fine)

Distribute 10 pts between these three stats:
Speed:
Strength:
Instinct:
---
Inventory:
Weapons:
Weapon Skill:

NOTE: Each class holds a bonus.
H2H (hand-to-hand): +5 Speed, Close-range Weapon Skill (knives, pistols, etc)
Soldier: +5 Strength, Medium-range Weapon Skill (rifles, submachine guns, etc)
Sniper: +5 Instinct, Long-range Weapon Skill (sniper rifles, compound bows/crossbows, etc)

The "Weapons Skill" increases your ability to use each weapon. A H2H would have difficulty handling a launcher, while a Soldier would have difficulty throwing a large knife. Your skill will improve over time.

---

STRIKE: The soldier in front of you nods and hands you a weapon from the guard. "He was carrying an AK-47, a Makarov pistol, and a combat knife. "Which of these can you use best?"

STEALTH: The soldier in front of you nods. "The hallway has only one exit. The guards could be anywhere, and we do not have much time before they come looking for this one. I will give you five minutes. You can take the keys he was carrying."

You slide the ID card through the scanner and the door slides open instantly. The guard doesn't even have time to react before you shoot him in the chest with your pistol. He drops to the ground.

You are in a room identical to the previous one. Another door, exactly like the one you just used, is on a wall ahead of you. To the left is the door the guard was defending. Above the door is a blue house-shaped icon instead of a name. The door can be unlocked with an ID card. The wall where the elevator door (if it is an elevator, as Lupe believes) would be is blank.

You notice a red shape on the wall beside the door. The guard was standing in from of it. On closer inspection, it is a thick red button with a yellow "!" on it. It protected by a clear plastic lid on a hinge. It appears to be an alarm of some sort.

Suddenly an alarm sounds. The lights in the ceiling turn red and begin blinking. Behind the "Home" door you hear a lot of shuffling and clicking from what sound like assault rifles. The light on the door scanner turns green.

(I'm assuming you meant to change from the guard uniform to your Black-Tac uniform. Oh, crap, I didn't describe it.
Black combat jacket
Black combat pants
Black combat boots
Black lightweight tac vest
Black facemask
Black tactical fingerless gloves
Black leg holster

You're going to need all that to carry the guns and equipment anyway, so I'm swapping you into it).

You finish pulling on, tightening up and strapping in your gear and clothing and step out into the hallway looking epic. The goggles are on a head strap and hinge, allowing you to lock them on like a helmet, then flip the goggles up so you can see normally. You turn and climb the stairs to the next floor.

END Chapter 1. You are the third to do so. To begin Chapter 2, post your stat sheet again.

CHAPTER 2:

Youmove quietly up the steel staircase. It makes two 45-degree turns to the right and ends on an unlocked door. Adam looks through a small window in the door, then carefully opens it and slides it open.

You find yourself in a small, square room. Everything is lighter. The ceiling is white, the walls are white and the floor is some kind of stainless white tile. The room is empty, except for a punchcard table on the right wall. A door is on the opposite wall.

(*facepalm*)

You lift the plastic lid and hit the red alarm button. Nothing changes. The alarm and red lights are still active. You appear to have triggered the alarm again.

The "Home" door slides open and twelve guards rush into the room. They see you and Adam and lock on. Six of them leave, taking the door you just entered the room through. The other six aim AK-47s, Makarovs and a Striker semi-automatic shotgun at you. Adam has his AUG assault rifle up and aimed at the group. You have an ID card in one hand and the other over the red alarm button.

You kneel down, turn the eyepiece on and slide the Snake Cam slowly under the door. The door in this case requires an ID card to open, so it should be sealed, but it is slightly off-center and has provided you a small opening to use the camera.

You see an empty, hexagon-shaped room. The only parts you can see with the camera are the far wall, which appears to have a set of stainless-steel doors on it, and the two walls beside it. Each wall has a single door in the center, most likely unlocked again by an ID card. Other than that, the room is empty. You look to the right one last time with the cam and see a pair of boots. A guard is standing just outside the door, on the right, facing the opposite wall.

Jacobi...ignore the "Adam" part. Wrong storyline. You're still STEALTH.

I pull out my USP .45, swipe my ID Card, step in the room and quickly shoot the guard in the head. I move to the door on the right wall and swipe my card.

Your plan works flawlessly. The guard drops long before he realizes you're an intruder. You notice something, though, on the wall behind the guard. A red button with a yellow "!" in the center. It's covered by a plastic hinged lid. Too bad the guard wasn't fast enough.

You read the door and swipe the card. The door slides silently open. You find yourself in a room identical to the previous one. Ahead is another door exactly like the one you just used, and on the right is a door exactly like the one from the stairs. A guard is standing in front of it as well. The only difference is that there are no stainless-steel doors in this room and the room the guard is protecting has a blue radio tower symbol over the door.

The guard does a double-take and reaches for his weapon.

I quickly shoot the guard before he can pull out his weapon, then use my Optic Cable on the door with the symbol on it.

(You are on a rampage).
+2 Speed for being a quickdraw twice in a row.

The guard drops, missing the "!" button completely. You approach the Radio Tower door, but find that it is sealed. The Snake Cam cannot be used.

You lean against the door (it requires an ID card, as usual) and look through the small window. The room is wide and somewhat dark. There appear to be several computer monitors, glowing white and blue, along with some bulky computers, cables, etc. The room seems to drop down in the center of it via a short set of stairs, where a large iron tower extends up past the ceiling. Two men wearing headsets are sitting in swivel chairs, examining the monitors and tapping on keyboards, but they don't look particularly busy.

You focus, then sense that there is a camera in the room somewhere, but it's too dark to see where.

I shoot the light in my room, then switch on my Night Vision, and look through the window for the camera and its IR beam so I know where it's pointed.
