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 walk over and inspect the punchcard table. It's nothing more than a box on the road and a ledger. Guards are required to put their names on it when they're on duty, along with their check-in and -out times. You ignore their names and focus on the times. The last two guards checked in at 10 AM. That would be the two you met (and killed) on the stairs. They were scheduled to check out at 12 (noon). You realized that the other two guards, the office guard and the food guard, were supposed to check out by now. It won't be long before they're missed.

Adam puts his back to the wall and moves up to the door. It's a set of doors, swinging open to let two people in side-by-side. The top half of them are tinted windows. On the wall, to the right of the doors, is a familiar sight: an ID Card reader. Adam looks through the windows by leaning beside them, then underneath and from the other side.

"It's a pretty wide room. There's a guard on the wall outside the door, on the card-reader side. He's defending this room. I don't see any others besides him. Yakov, gonna need your card."

Yakov hands the card to you. "You are the fighter, yes? Deal with the guard."

I swipe the card and progress through the door at a normal speed to not alarm the guard then once I'm through I open fire on him going for injury shots not kills.

You find yourself facing a hexagon-shaped room. Your door was a part of one of six walls. The two walls connected are solid except for a thin slot window in each one. The walls connected to them each have a single door in the center, and they are connected to a final wall that has a set of stainless-steel doors in the very center with what looks like a control panel beside it.

You walk through, apparently forgetting you're wearing a night-ops Black Tac uniform. The guard turns and jerks his rifle up. You drop him with your silenced G11 to keep the noise down, hitting him in the right thigh and left knee. the guard screams in pain.

You team follows you through. Yakov shoots the guard with his silenced rifle, then turns to you. "Why do you keep wounding them? They are guards. They have no information for you, they will call for help, and humans often make a lot of noise when they have been shot."

"I'm sorry force of habit I don't want to kill."
I go and look through the two windows.

The two walls connected to the wall with the door you just exited each have a single thin window. To your surprise, each window displays tall waves of saltwater.

This is the basic shape of the room:

The three men look at each other.

"Well, we still don't know exactly where we are, or where to go. It would help if we had a map of this place. Looks like we're on an island or peninsula or something, though, so we won't be able to just run out the door. For all we know, we're on an island."

Adam looks at the doors. "There are two doors, both unmarked, leading in two different directions. I'm not sure which way to go, but, since this area is clear, we can always come back."

"Three doors" Lupe replies. "Those stainless steel plates are automatic doors. There is a light above it with the letter 'G'. It's an elevator, and we're on the ground floor."

Pick one of the doors.

Lets take the right door. Lets go and look around a bit and if there isn't anything promising we'll come back and check the left.

You approach the door on the right. It is a large white door, much like the one you just used. Most of the top half is a window. Through it you see a room that is almost completely identical to the one you jut left. A door is on the right wall, protected by a single guard, same as the room you are currently in. Farther back, you see another door, identical to this one, in the same position that this door is.

The only difference is that there is no elevator door (if it is an elevator door, as Lupe believes) and the door with the guard has a blue symbol over it that you can't quite make out. The door again requires an ID card. It automatically slides open once the card has been scanned.

"Lets check the other door." I tell the others and make sure my gun is loaded and ready. I'm using the G11.

You check the G11. It has a 13-round magazine and it still has 8 rounds, plus a spare magazine.

You turn back, then go to the door on the other side of the room. The door is also white, with a large window taking up the top half, and it slides open with an ID card. Through the window you see, to your amazement, a third room identical to the first two (your current room and the one through the other door). Another guard is posted an another door with an icon over the door you can't quite make out, and there is no elevator door (if it is an elevator door, as Lupe believes).

"Lets split up. Two go through the right two through the left. We'll meet back here in twenty minutes."
I opt to go left and who ever goes with me.

Yakov thinks, then nods. "Very well. We'll split up. There are two soldiers, so Adam with go with you. I will join Lupe. But be aware that we will have no way to communicate, and if we discover something, or get caught, you will have to come and find us."

"Ok good idea. If the other group isn't back in 15 minutes we will go and find them."
With that I go through the door. Once through I start shooting the guard.
