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.

Alright so this weekend is seriously the end of this. Currently I'm way too overwhelmed so yeah. There will be a few more steps into the story and it'll most likely end. Expect to die. Cause you probably will xd.

Sorry about soooo many delays and stops and hiatus... For GZII I'll make sure to be completely able to post at least every day before I make it... I will also try and get a helper in case I am not able to post just so he can take over or whatever.

Anyways thanks for understanding... Hopefully... xD

I WILL DIE A HERO.

Also, definitely do a kickstarter thread, because then you can lay every idea out on the table for us and get feedback you'll need. You'll also be able to judge how popular the game will be by the number of people that contribute.

This weekend is the beginning of Spring Break for me, so I'm ready to go.

Awesome. Mine starts next weekend.

I'll definitely be doing the kickstarter thread don't worry. I think it's a great idea and it'll bring more people to it anyways.

Btw the ending might actually be cool for everyone. No one will die in a stupid way. And like Matt says he will die a hero.. That actually might happen. xD

I don't just want to end this story out of the blue, I want it to have a nice cool and smooth ending.

Expect to get an update probably later today.

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.


~You successfully climb the tree without giving yourself away. You look over to where the smoke is and it's still up. You do notice Ghalaghor step out and put his dagger in hand. He then heads into the forest in the opposite direction in which your in. It's a bit too quiet for anyones liking and you can't spot anyone or anything, not even 1 little rabbit. You also didn't notice anyone follow Ghalghor which is strange since there was an enemy with him before. Maybe he disintegrated like before...

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

*Name: Ghalaghor

~Push Dagger XV (T-Shaped Dagger)
~2 Flash bangs
*Gear: Light Full Body Armor [20% ND]
*TEAM: 42 ALUE

~You head into the forest... All a bit too quiet. You sit near a tree to rest a bit since you're exhausted from all the hits you've taken. You wonder where Kenji is and if there are any other players around here... You assume that the smoke and fire would draw all the players to come here. You hear a noise on your far right.

*TEAM: Blue

(Great, i can no longer fight a range.) I pull my sword out, but I try to be stealthy.


~You pull out your sword and grasp it with both hands. You crouch down and walk over to another tree. The plasma from the blade could give away your position but for now you have enough cover for it to not do so. As your walking you step on a branch making a pretty loud cracking noise. You crouch completely and put your back against the tree. You don't hear anything at the moment.

I'll take the KSP shotgun upgrade, the medium body armor, and a bracelet. pang can take the rest.

I then leave but wait for pang.


~You head out the exit and continue on with your partner. As soon as you go outside you immediately see blue fire. It seems as if someone lit a cabin on fire... Strange that it would be blue though. In the distance you can see smoke in a forest area. There might be other players here... You should probably proceed with caution. It's also getting dark so Nightwatchers may be coming out soon.

~You notice it take out a sword of some type... Plasma probably. He crouches down and starts to walk forward, behind a tree. You then hear a cracking noise, like someone stepped on a branch. You don't see anyone else and that player is completely vulnerable right now. You wonder if there is anyone else around here... If anything it's possible that all of the players could be in the forest, right here... Probably even behind you.

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

Yeah.. It's time to finally put this end into motion xD Good Luck, you'll all need it.

I jump down and pick up my rifle, then walk into a clearing in the forest. I pull out a Popper 'Nade and throw it straight up, then grab a rock at hit it in mid-air, creating a large explosion above the forest. I look up and yell "I AM KENJI AND I DO NOT FEAR YOU! COME TO ME! ALL OF YOU! LET US HAVE ONE LAST BATTLE!"

If anyone is interested, which you should be, go here.

It's the kickstarter thread for GZII, I hope that most or even all of you participate in it since most of you are going to be in GZII anyways.

I know some people who would like to flood me with ideas for it so go ahead and do it there.

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

Again wait till more people post..
