Old Saeron. If you lived in Old Saeron you were on top of the world. You had anything you could ever want or dream of. Sure like any other place it had its bad spots. But Old Saeron made them beautiful. They used to say that it was the capitol of Passion. On the crossways of Endeavor and Beauty.
Then The War happened. In the beginning they called it The Great War. But after the metallic march, the infection, and the blaze it became known as the final war. A few days before the war Old Saeron locked up tight. As if over night The Wall grew. It encapsulated the whole city and reach as high as you could imagine. In a way it was beautiful and exciting. But after the war started no one had time to think about it. There were rumors of it being a haven to those running from the war. They were never proven. But you could hope, that one night you'd be tapped on the shoulder, told you were chosen and could escape to what some began to call heaven.
The war is over now and the world, or at least whats left of it, is at peace. Not to say there isn't strife but with only the smallest percent of humanity left you can't real have wars.
You exist in this world. You were born shortly after everything settled down. Growing up you learned how to survive in this new and horrible world. After The March, you have to watch your back because any automaton could be an altered one, one with no first law. After The Infection when your family dies you don't spend time with anything fancy because you don't want to have to see them turn.
There are rumors those of amazing things in Old Saeron. Technology fresh off the block. Exciting advances and at least better food. Now only if you can find a way in.

Make sure to get others to play else I can't continue. The story line revolves around multiple people. Also this (^^^^^) is a good example. The only changes I would make( don't worry Jacobi about changing it its fine) A longer bio and also a way to describe your "class" ,or the job and skills you have, in your bio.

I'm just going to start it.

You are now in what used to be Talipore City. Talipore City is just north of Old Saeron. You are currently roaming through the derelict city avoiding the zombie hordes. As you circle around a building you see a squad of 3 robots. They appear to be modified and dangerous. But the resources you could glean from them might make it worth it.

What will you do?

Stalking through the city is almost a hobby for you. You are in Talipore City, where no one lives permanently. As you are walking you walk around a corner and at the last moment realize your not alone. In front of you not more then 60 feet away is a squad of 3 robots. Thankfully they are faced away from you.

What will you do?

(Do I actually have 10 items in Inventory or is it a limit? Also, what are Castor Specs?)

I watch them and analyse their armor. Either way I prefer to avoid confrontation. But I don't know where to go.

(These robots...Are we talking Gundam Wing, Mech suit, Star Wars droid or WALL-E? Can I just cut them in half or do I need a big laser or EMP device?)

Sargeanon. That's where you are. Or at least what the sign said. You have been going through Sargeanon, which is east of Old Saeron, in search of a device called, "S.E.N.T.I.N.E.L." You were given this task in secret with no info of the other person. All you know is its in an high tech research facility somewhere in Srgeanon. After that you were to meet up with him again in 2 weeks time.

Currently you have managed to stumble upon a small horde of zombies. They see weak and shuffling but also not worth your time. They could also attract unwanted attention.

What will you do?

You pick ten simple items to start with.

Castor spec are a device in place of night vision goggles. You have to spend the psi, which is indicated by (40/40), to use your psionic skill night vision. The amount you spend increases the power and duration of the night vision. Check out my updates on my page and ask question on here or there.

I robot. Humanoid robots with the natural armor of there metal "skin" They are more agile and stronger than humans but not to an extreme scale. An emp would be perfect, Any gun with enough shots works splendidly, and a giant *** sword word do great.

@ MattEmAngel

Aight. I'll see you then.
Suggestions:
-10 items is a lot of items, especially to start with.
-I have nowhere to go and no real scenery. When you started Strike or Stealth, you may have noticed that you often had only one door to continue to a new area. It gives players a start position. I'm kind of...somewhere. Need some detail or less choices.
-"Items" is vague. Be careful with vagueness. It should be an instant picked load-out, instead of back-and-forth with the OP. "I pick this" "you can't have that, it's too big" "ok i pick this" "dude you can't use that, it doesn't exist in this world." You can (and should, really) place limits as soon as possible so we know what we're getting into.

Don't give up, and don't start over. Take my suggestions or don't, it's your world. "Strike or Stealth" was the first RPG I ever created. I played/tried others ahead of time, read the posts and read all three Stickied posts about RPGs to prepare. You just had to work on it. "Original" isn't always good. Too many people go with "original" names, locations, backstories, etc and have no plans. Draw some characters. Make some maps. Write some stories. You can make up a lot of it as you go, but you have to be prepared for players to get creative. Someone in SoS used the guard's key set as a weapon (hold the keys between your fingers = brass knuckles) and punched a guard in the eye. And (pre-emptive strike here) don't make players have ideas. Players are real people that can have sweet ideas or screw up (because you NEVER push the red button. Maybe). And if your player screws up (pushes the red button), be prepared. I managed to save your stupid butt with a little backup. Hah and SoS has more to go. Anyway. That's all I can think of to say. I like my character so far and want to have an adventure. Make it happen.

Oh! And post it in the "New RPGs" section in Forum Games (it's like the first stickied post). That's what I did, and put it on my page. 5 players, 150+ posts.
