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 click the switch, turning on an overhead light. You instantly realize why it was hidden.

The room is a large closet with three huge racks/lockers on the three walls. It contains all of the guns, equipment and clothing from your team. Apparently they confiscated it and hid it here.

JACKPOT.

You don't have all day, so you read the name tags on the uniforms. A locker and rack has been more or less assigned to your uniform.

You find:

The door has a small bulletproof window. Inside is a guard at a wooden table facing the large hallway window. He has an intercom speaker and headset and looks bored. Behind him are several lockers, spare uniforms, and a bench.

You whisper the information to Adam. He thinks, then nods. "I have an idea. Move over." He leans against the wall beside the door, pauses, then pulls the dead guard's keys from a pocket, unlocks the door, kicks it in and shoots the guard in the head.

"We don't have all day. Come on." He takes his rifle and uses the butt of it to smash the locks off the lockers.

You find:
Makarov pistol, 7 rnds
Makarov pistol magazine (2)
Combat knife (you can throw it as well)
Pack of cigarettes
Lighter
Deck of cards
Photograph (some girlfriend of a guard, probably)
ID card!
----------------------------------------------------
I take the combat knife, lighter, deck of cards, ID card, and then set the photograph on fire. I then get out as quickly as possible.

Darn, I was hoping...oh well, this way I dont have to worry about the safety of the other guys. I'll head up the stairs, locked and loaded with the MP5K, and blow away the guards as soon as I see them. On to the second floor!

(Dude, don't copy/pasta the whole thing if I send you a long text block like that. Just reply).

You are now carrying an AK-47, a Makarov pistol, a G11 Semiautomatic pistol, an AK-47 Magazine, two Makarov pistol Magazines, two G11 Magazines, a Smoke Grenade, a Tactical Flashlight, a Combat Knife and a pack of playing cards.

......um....yeah, ok. Update it yourself, though.

You step out of the armory looking like Death. Adam's jaw hits the ground. "All our gear is in there?! Holy crap! Let's lock and load!"

You stand watch while your team, one and a time, picks a load-out. Basically,
Yakov takes an M16 3-round-burst rifle (Silenced) (Red Dot) and a USP45 pistol (Silenced)
Adam takes an AUG A2 rifle (Red Dot) and a Desert Eagle
Lupe takes an HK SL9SD semi-automatic sniper rifle (Silenced) and a .357 Magnum revolver

They all swap into their uniforms as well.

Outside, the guards have checked the cells and are back, yelling and arguing over what happened. You crack the door open just enough to see six of them in a row, with a seventh yelling at them. Adam smirks. "On your mark."

(I have updated your Inventory. The knives are Combat knives, but as a H2H you can throw them).

You leave with the team. Lupe unlocks the door with the ID card, then falls back and lets you and Adam take the front. You wait a second, then open the door.

You enter a square-shaped concrete room. On the right is an unmarked door. To the left, on the back wall, is a staircase. Coming down the stairs are two guards. One of them sees you and shouts. They unslings their AK-47s and prepare to take a shot. Adam leans out from behind the door and raises his AK-47.

Your instincts are correct. A light comes on above you. One look at this room and you know why it was hidden.

You're in a medium-sized room with weapon racks/lockers on three walls, along with uniforms. They're all from your team and now they're yours.

JACKPOT.

You don't have all day, so search until you find your name on a uniform. The rack/locker has basically been assigned to you.

You find:
HK SL9SD Semi-Automatic sniper rifle, 10 rnds (Silenced)
3-9x40 Scope (zooms in from 3x size to 9x size)
HK Magazine, 10 rnds (2)
USP 45 handgun, 10 rnds (Silenced) (Laser)

Choke cable with handles
Snake Cam and Eyepiece (A tiny camera on a long, adjustable arm that can be curled, bent, or arched. Perfect for looking through grates, under doors and around corners)
Smoke Grenade (1)

You also find a headset and walkie-talkie, but they have been deliberately crushed.

END Chapter 1

(No, the RPG isn't over. I just haven't designed the next floor yet! >_< I'm hoping everyone will catch up and I can start Chapter 2 for everyone, but I might have to call it a night. Feel free to read the other story arcs. It's hard as crap to keep everyone up to date AND be realistic AND add a whole new floor with a new layout. But I will do it! Don't worry, I won't leave you hanging. For too long).

You and your team burst into the hallway. You hit the seventh guard in the head, killing him instantly, and hit another guard in the chest twice. Yakov opens up and hits two guards with three-round bursts. Adam combat rolls into the room, slides the AUG up into position and kills two more guards. Lupe twists around the corner and hits the last guard between the eyes with a throwing knife.

The guards collapse. The area is clear. You and your team move to the stairs and head up.

You flip both knives into your hands and throw them. One hits a guard in the head, the other hits the second guard in the shoulder. Adam finishes him off with a few AK-47 rounds. "Nice throw."

The others catch up to you as you inspect the guards. "You killed them, so you can have first pick" Yakov says.

You find:
Guard Uniform (2)
AK-47, 30 rnd
AK-47, 30 rnd (Silenced)
AK-47 Magazine (2)
Makarov pistol, 7 rnd (2)
Makarov pistol Magazine (2)
Guard's key set
ID Card (Identical to the one in your Inventory)

(Be aware, again, that this is realistic. Your inventory cannot hold infinite items. You can carry things in your pockets or in your hands, and the AK-47s have slings. Since you are wearing prison clothes, you have two shallow pockets).

Current Status:
Two have completed Chapter One and found both Objectives.
One is close to completing Chapter One and has found both Objectives.
Two are still a ways away from completing Chapter One, no Objectives.

Chapter 2 begins now. All players check in. If you haven't completed Chapter One, no big deal, keep going from where you left off.

Brian and Argamen: Post your current stat sheet to begin.

The other men look impressed. "Well" Yakov says "We have nothing between us and the way out now. It would seem the only escape is the staircase."

Lupe stops and looks to the right. "That door. We didn't check there yet."

Adam shrugs. "It's a supply closet. A mop, a few body bags, whatever. Not worth our time. Come on, lets move!"

You consider you choices. You can't abandon your team. You have very little time before guards arrive. You can leave this floor and go up the stairs or you can check the unmarked door.

CHAPTER 2

You and the other three men, now in full Black-Tac gear, 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.
