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.

IMPORTANT:

I removed hunger and thirst since I see there is now no use for it since I am not even basing off wilderness survival anymore. I also fixed up the weapons a bit to make it a bit easier to read and make it less cluttered. Tell me if you guys want thsi for the items too. I'll probably be implementing this into GZII or something like this.

ALSO IMPORTANT:

This is the last portion of Ground Zero I. This last part is going to be pretty big since it's going to include everyone left. The last two people(or one maybe, idk) to survive win. I'll then make, most likely, a ''kickstarter thread'' like Matt suggested to me. You can all add your opinions and suggestions there since they will weigh in more than any other people considering you've played already.

Oh come ON! I can't get a break here, besides the katana headshot. 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.


~Before you do that though you hear a gunshot followed by a 'whiz' sound on your left. A gunshot. You quickly duck down and look for cover behind a tree somewhere. Were you shot at or did someone try and protect you? It's impossible to know right now. The forest you are in isn't that dense but does provide a lot of cover. For now all you know is that the gunshots came from in front of you. You have no idea where Ghalaghor is at the moment and you also don't know where that non player enemy is. Also whoever shot at you or at the enemy is pretty much invisible right now.

~You notice the player on the ground stab the other one right through the head but the person disappears into a dust. Confused you accidently shoot since you had your finger on the trigger already. The player quickly ducks down and heads behind a tree somewhere. You are in a forest but it isn't that dense. There is a lot of cover though. The smoke cloud is still there and there are still 2 shadows in there. The small pistol you had also disintegrates...

~Well you are hearing gunshots again. Only heard 1 this time. You head into the forest area. You don't see anyone except for 2 people in a small smoke screen. It's extremely quiet. There are a lot of places where people could hide here and you could possibly get ambushed. You then notice movement out of the corner of your eye to your left.

I run and slide under the door if I can.


~Luckily you are pretty quick so you don't even have to slide under the door. You get through and it's pretty dark but it immediately gets bright as you see your partner head through a door into the same room your in. There is another chest in the middle of the room that comes up. It reads, ''Good job, you both passed. If not you would have both died a pretty horrible death. Here is your reward.'' The chest opens and it contains a few things.
*Medium Full Body Armor [30% ND] (You can switch out of the old one, 6% more negated damage n.n)

*Upgrade for crossbow to Tier 5

*2 Med-packs
*DPQ Bracelet (If you guys get seperated you can easily find eachother. If one of you needs help and is too far, you can tell eachother. ETC.)
A door open in front of you and the light leaks into the room.

~The enemy grabs you from the side and surprises you. You give off a shot by accident and then try to aim it at the enemy, you point it at his head while you are both on the ground and shoot. He then disappears and you quickly get up and run out of the smoke. The forest ins't that dense but it does provide decent cover in certain places. Kenji isn't in sight and before you heard a gunshot but don't know who shot it. You then feel your back get crushed by the enemy as he collides into your spine. You fall to the floor in pain and look back and the enemy is gone again.

Okay well it's still not safe for me to attack, so I climb up the tree and get onto a low, thick branch, then wait for the smoke to clear.

Seriously what the heck? xD

This is a text based RPG. Not a flash game, obviously. There are a lot of these around here.

---------------------------

Yeah sorry I'm not going to update in this post, I'm exhausted. I'll try and post tomorrow at school during programming class xD... Lol.
