I KNOW THIS MIGHT BE A LONG READ BUT ITâLL BE WORTH IT!

Before you get into this RPG, which I promise you will enjoy, I got the idea of making this from several stuff. The Hunger Games inspired me the most since I love the books and the movie was great. I also got a little inspiration from The Maze Runner. There are several things that made me want to do this, but it actually was out of the blue, not going to lieâ¦

Anyways please read the story if you wish to participate, I know it may not be the best but it will make this RPG way better than you think. I approve of any constructive feedback if possible (On my profile) and if you donât like something just tell me. Good Luck!


STORY: Set in the year 2063, humans have always been the same, greedy and egotistical as usual, but one thing that truly hasn't changed is their need for entertainment. With so much stuff that used to be entertaining a few decades back seized to be that exactly, humans didn't know what exactly to be entertained by anymore. Now television is full of tournaments and races involving real people in real danger more than ever before, this gives a sense of thrill and excitement in the viewers and this also means big bucks for producers and directors. These shows aren't the casual low set contests you see, they involve killing to survive and fighting to the death. It kind of brings back the times for coliseums and gladiators if you think about it. It just goes to show that humans will always be the same, so much blood lust and the need for entertainment.

This brings me to a very special tournament called, ââGROUND ZEROââ. This tournament is considered to be one of the best and most watched of this century. It consists of survival mostly, but itâs all twisted. With monsters, obstacles and with even the players having to fear each other it is one of the most intense and suspenseful tournaments of all time. It is located on an island, location which is unknown, which is covered by a dome. This cannot be seen by satellite because all governments have blocked off its view to the public. This dome is used to create the biomes inside of this tournament; the players have to go through weather changes that can be disastrous, even tornadoes have been seen in this tournament. They also have to go through different terrains such as deserts, glaciers, mountains, etc.

GETTING STARTED: [Big AD on TV and Billboards] Hello, I am Albern, your host for this yearâs Ground Zero! This year since we are choosing the USA to be part of it, I have come to New York to find enlistees! If you wish to sign up you must travel to the Big Apple and go to the ''Core'', only a handful will be picked to partake in this yearâs Ground Zero so be sure to be thorough with your application seeing as how we will only be picking who we think will be best for this year. Good luck and to all a prosperous journey!

RULES:

*YOU MUST READ ALL THE RULES

*3 or 5 Groups, each group has 2 players. (So it will be 10 players max, but anyone can apply)

*Players are selected by how well they construct their application.

*Players will be put in randomly into the teams.

*Players who have died can participate in the next tournament with a new name but they have less possibility of getting in.

*Anyone can sign up but only a handful will be chosen. (Please do not be mad if you are not picked, I can only handle a certain amount of people, please understand that. Plus I want this to feel like an actual tournament and there will be several more tournaments, this is just the first.)

*This RPG is special; it actually consists of a group winning. (Currently there is no prize, I was thinking maybe something you could put on your profile or something, Iâll think of something.)

*Once the flame is lit you must start. (Basically itâs when I start it and tell people what to do and how to start it off.)

*Only players that are in the same group can talk to each other, but everyone may address to me. Now, how you will talk to your partner is up to you, I suggest not through here though.

*If in any way I catch you cheating, you and you alone will be disqualified and sent to the pit, where you will die a painful and agonizing death. Please do not cheat it could put your partner in a bad position and could cause him his death as well.

*Only I decide what happens to the group and players. You cannot say anything that will be in your favor, for example you cannot say: ââI walked forward and I jumped the gapââ The right way of putting it would be: ââI walked forward and I attempt to jump the gap.ââ Also please donât be dull (lack of creativity) and you must use proper grammar, punctuation and spelling if you wish to get into the Core.

*Groups do not decide in groups on most situations, I will most likely almost always split you up, the only reason you are in groups is so you do not kill each other. Oh that's another thing it is illegal to kill your partner, if you even try to do it I will immediately send you to the pit.

*IMPORTANT: The application sheet is not the same as the sheet you use in the actual RPG. There is only some stuff you use and some stuff will be added to the Character Sheet. I will instruct everyone on what to put.

*IMPORTANT: Any criticism should be posted onto my profile comments not here, this is to avoid any confusion and to not cause such a mess in this thread so to keep it clean and neat.

APPLICATION:

*Name: (Please make up a name, be creative)

*Age: (Between the ages of 18-25)

*Athletic Abilities: (You must choose 2 of these: Sprinter, Strength, Endurance, and Agile.) (This will basically be your only athletic abilities in the RPG. It will factor in on some situations.)

*Gender: (Male or Female, choose what you like, I hope itâs what you are in real life xD)

*Bio: (Basically your history before ââGround Zeroââ and why you wanted to enter. You may put what you wish here, just be realistic and remember to keep it in the time frame of the set year which is 2024. Do not put anything ridiculous or immature or you will not be accepted. You do not have to put anything here if you do not want to but you will have less chance of going to the Core. The more creative you are the better chance you have of getting into the Core.)

*Appearance: (This will not affect your possibility to enter but it adds to the story and gives a better image) [Eye Color] [Hair Color] [Skin Color] [Height] [Shape: I will pick your shape according to your athletic abilities so leave this blank.] (If you put anything ridiculous like green skin I will not let you participate.)

*Previous Contender: (If yes, which one, if no then just write no)
(Currently there are none since this is the first tournament, but there will be more. Just put no or your application could become null...)

ALMOST THERE:

All you have to do now is post the application, once I have a certain amount of people, which I will not say, I will close registration. Then I will announce when I will be starting and will message everyone on their profiles so they can get ready so please keep your comment section open, if you do not have it open I will not add you to the Core.

Please refrain from any immature and unrealistic stuff in your application cause that will result in you not being able to be put on the Core and possibly any future tournaments.

Last but not least, everyone have fun! I donât want complaining⦠Constructive criticism is fine but if it is anything but that I will send you to the pit and youâll die and be excluded from the rest of the tournament. Also, everyone will move as one, basically I mean that everyone has to enter their next move until I can give everyone the next order.

If this doesn't go well I probably wonât be making any other RPGâs so Iâll appreciate it if you guys try it out at least. Btw this is my second RPG ever so I need as much criticism possible, but only put criticism on my profile please.

I'm just going to do what me and pang did before to that one tiger creature thing.

I take out an arrow and stab the top of its head.


-You take out the arrow and stab it in the face. Blood trickles down it and onto it's nose. It appears to be dead... You then see a pedastal with a chest on it appear a few feet away from you. A door also opens in the same direction.

(Sorry about not posting yours I forgot that I was going to post yours again.)

-They appear to be even smaller crabs. You get closer and succesfully manage to destroy every single last one of them even though they were jumping at you a few seconds ago. You point at the head of the big crab and send that claw flying towards it. The claw explodes and so does the crab with it. The front part of the crab has been completely obliterated now. A pedastal appears a few feet away and a door in the same direction.

Well tomorrow I' try and update as much as I can n.n

I think I might actually make the kickstarter thread for GZII and it might be soon, Matt is right when it comes to that. Especially for an RPG which is slightly popular with a lot of players I think it's a great idea.

I'll be taking in ideas, suggestions, locations, structures, monsters, character sheets, stats, etc.

Obviously I'll probably post it after I finish this.

I go towards what's left of the crab and examine it (same reason as the last creature I examined).

Then..I head towards the pedestal (I hope you meant to say there was a chest on there like Tarren..if not..touchÃ&copy

*2 Popper Nades (explode on inpact)

~You run straight out of the gas and grab the gun. You still can't see the guy or Ghalghor for that matter. You remember that there is 2 of them now. You see 3 shadows in the smoke all standing still. You then hear something behind you and realize there is only 2 shadows now. You quickly turn around but the enemy grabs you and throws you to the floor with all his might, You recieve an extreme impact to the shoulder. The enemy is now in position to go for the kill, he raises his sword and starts to run at you.

~You run as quickly as possible and run past the cabin. The gunshots are silent now and you see a big smoke cloud in the distance. You're behind a tree just in case no one sees you. You notice someone come out from the gas cloud and grab a gun on the floor. After this another person appears out of thin air behind that same person and throws him at least 15 feet across. The person seems to be going for the kill now since he's running at him with his sword up. You also notice 2 other shadows in the smoke cloud not moving whatsoever.

~Seems like an upgrade for your weapon. It's an Anaconda RPX Plasma [100% Charge]. There is also 2 flash bangs and also a small plasma dagger. You grab everything and then hear something behind you. You quickly duck down and hear someone pass by you. You look back up and notice the same guy that let you go before running towards the cabin, or what seems to be the gunfire. The cabin is pretty much in flames now and there is some weird smome behind it, like a smoke grenade went off.

i try to find and get the R1SK. i hold it in my left hand and my glock in my right hand, waiting for the enemy while i try to get out of the gas cloud.


~You search around the floor and grab something. You pick it up and it's the R1SK. You hold it up in your left hand and put the glock in your other. You can't really see anyone but you assume Kenji head out of the gas to have a better chance. You hear footsteps around you and you only see 1 shadow quickly moving around you but barely noticable. You then feel a sharp pain on the left side of your face. You feel your jaw get crunched by brute force. You go flying into the air and fall a few feet away form your original position. You're in good shape but that was a rough hit. You then here feet stomping towards you.
[4HP] [6 Bullets from before...]

*20 Arrows
*Medium Full Body Armor [30% ND]

I grab 'Blue Flames' backhand and throw it, like a javelin, into his skull. I can't possibly miss him at that range. I spin to the left as well to avoid his attack, semi-autmatic weapon in one hand and 'Ocean's Descent' in the other.

Headshot.

~You successfully do this but the enemy just vanishes into dust... You quickly try and recover from what the hell just happened and get up. You also notice that the gun has no ammo. You hear Ghalaghor in the smoke.

Oh come ON! I can't get a break here, besides the katana heatshot. RGH. Well I can't rush into the smoke, because I'll die. I'm going to have to wait it out. I retrieve the other katana and take cover behind a tree, waiting for the smoke to clear.
