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."

UPDATE


I've added a lovely bonus to the game. When one of your stats exceeds 10 Points, you will gain an "Extreme Status" bonus. Each of the three stats is a little different once it has been upgraded to ES. Be aware of your stats and try to earn points.

I award cleverness, speed, and success with points (I'm trying to work on distributing more, but this isn't the last floor). If you blaze through the game, getting caught and barely escaping, you won't get many points. If you sneak your way around and don't get caught, you will. If you take out a bunch of guards with equipment or a trap, you will. If you outsmart me, you definitely will. Get involved. Get extreme.

You turn to look at the punchcard table. It's identical to the one you saw coming up the stairs, with names and times stamped onto a few ledgers. You notice that two guards are scheduled to swap soon. Almost immediately the double doors swing open and a guard practically walks into you, yawning and pulling on his uniform.

Oooh, free guard! This floor's **** confusing, so...I tackle the guard while he's busy pulling on his uniform and hold my G17 to his head, pulling him beside the double-doors and keeping an eye on them, just in case the other guard comes in. "Okay, let's make this fast. I dont wanna kill you. We're all human beings. But if you resist, I will blow your brains out. I want a map of this floor, and you're going to tell me where it is. In return, i'll tell you the locations of the three far more dangerous escaped prisoners. Deal?" I lie through my teeth; I dont even know where the other guys are myself. But HE doesn't know that. Let's see if he accepts. "What's more important to you, your life or your job?"

Really, AG censors the D word? In today's society that's barely even a curse word anymore.

You grab the scoped AK-47 from the rack. It only has one magazine. You nod, and Adam kicks the door open and you jump into the hall.

There are six guards in a row, with a seventh walking back and forth screaming at them. Adam kills him and another guard. Yakov kills a second and a third, and you kill two more. Lupe shoots the last one.
+2 Strength

In front of you are the stairs leading up to the second level. Each dead guard has an AK-47, an AK-47 Magazine (30) and a Makarov pistol.
---------------------------------------
Booyah! I take the 3 magazines (you said each soldier) and the Makarov magazines. "Come on!" We go up the stairs.

The guard doesnât respond. He seems to be thinking. He slowly turns and nods. âThe map is in the room behind us. Itâs in the back, where the lockers are. The roomâ¦itâs hidden. Youâll need my keys.â He reaches down to his belt and pulls out a Makarov pistol, then points it up in the air. âYou let go or I shoot. That room is barracks. We have twenty men on standby. You kill me, they torture you for information. The others? Probably dead. You make choice now.â

You descend the short set of stairs to the radio tower. It is solid steel, surrounded by a bulletproof-glass case. Even if you could break the glass, you couldnât destroy it.

Two guards pop up in opposite sides of the room. One is aiming a gun and one is raising his hands to surrender. You have only time to kill one; the one on the right or the one on the left.

(Yup, I didnât tell you which was which. Thatâs what happens when you charge in).

(What tube?? I didnât mention a tube. If youâre talking about the bulletproof glass, itâs sealed and was designed to never be opened).

You suddenly sense danger. Somewhere outside you hear gunfire, but itâs not directly outside the room. At least four or five people are shooting. You can very faintly hear yelling. Itâs an American, and heâs shouting for assistance.

The other prisoners!

END Chapter 1. You have reached the stairs and advanced. I will auto-start Chapter 2 for you now.

You and the other three men move 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.

(I flipped a coin to decide who you hit. Just to keep it interesting).

You turn to the left and nail the guard with the gun in the head, killing him instantly. The other man, on the right, shouts "Don't shoot! Please! I'll cooperate!"
+1 Speed for getting it just in time.

BONUS: Your Stat (Speed) has exceeded 10 points. You now have Extreme Speed. You run twice as fast, you can draw and shoot faster than any guard, and you can break a neck first try every time.

Darn. I was looking forward to meeting up with them again. Oh well..."Alright, I'll let you go." And I do. Then shoot his hand with the G17, following up with choking the guard with my choke cable. "And then do this." Like I was going to let him stay concious! HAH. Anyway, once that scuffle's over with, I check the room the guard mentioned after swiping his keys, the locker room. (Mental note: Look in closets and locker rooms for goodies.)

Yakov walks to the guard and pats him down. "He is clean now" he says, holding up a Makarov pistol and tossing to to the corner of the room. "How do we escape from here? I am done with the killing. Show us the way out and we will release you."

The guard hesitates, then nods and sighs. "One condition. You tie me up before you leave so I won't be killed. You have two ways out of here: the main entrance and the elevator. If you take the main doors, you will end up in the corridor that leads to the main base, but it is heavily guarded and you won't survive. If you take the elevator, you'll end up on the roof. There is a helicopter. But you need me to get to it."

Yakov turns to you. "I believe he is telling the truth. I think we are on an island of some kind."

You can question the guard, kill the guard, or bring the guard with you.

You shoot and strangle the guard. He wasn't fast enough to react and you avoided setting off the alarm.
+1 Speed for keeping it quiet.

BONUS: Your Stat (Speed) has exceeded 10 points. You now have Extreme Speed. You run twice as fast, you can draw and shoot faster than any guard, and you can break a neck first try every time.

You take the keys (again) and use the ID card to unlock the door he walked through. You step inside and freeze. The room is full of lines of beds with sleeping guards in them. Each of them has an AK-47 beside their head, leaning against the bed. To the right is a line of sinks stretching across the wall. The room is long, and you are approximately at the halfway point. To your left is what looks like a locker room. You can see the entrance to it, as well as a few very organized lockers. You can also make out the edges of a table.

Oh...oh no. Best let sleeping guards lie! However...what if they wake up and shoot me? Better troll with them, so I tiptoe quietly beside them and silently remove the ammo from their AK's. Imagine a guard trying to shoot me, only to find out he has no bullets! Heh heh...now that that's done, I inspect the table, maybe a guard left a sandwich on it.
