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.

~As you walk on, the android jumps from the tree and lands in front of you. You grab your knife and get ready for a fight. The android speaks. ''Hello fellow traveler, I cannot let you pass''. ''You must do something for me first. You have to go east of here and bring me a special something from a chest. Be wary though as there could be trouble there. I am not going because I have to keep my post here, if not I would go get it myself. Please do this one task for me? I will reward you.''

FEAST ON THE TENDER YOUNG FLESH OF NEWBORNS! VEAL!!!!!!!!! SLAUGHTER THINE ENEMIES, CLEAVE THEM IN TWAIN WITH YOUR BARE HANDS, RIP OUT THEIR STILL BEATING HEART AND DEVOUR IT BEFORE THEIR VERY EYES! FEAST ON THEIR LIVERS, IT'S GOOD PROTEIN AND VITAMINS! FILLET THEIR THIGHS, MUNCH ON THEIR TENDER BACK FAT! HOLD NOTHING BACK, IN THIS TOURNAMENT HUMANITY AND COMPASSION MUST BE THE FIRST TO GO. VIOLENCE AND CARNAGE REIGN SUPREME!!! ALL HAIL BRUTALITY! I'D CONTINUE ON BUT IT STARTS TO GET A BIT DISTURBING AND R-RATED FROM THERE ON.
...I scared myself XD. I know I might fail, but I probably wont due to my savagery and athletic abilities. LETS GET SAVAGE. Note that in this state, Savell could probably keep himself alive from pure rage and psychopathic fury.

Yeah, that's why they call him "The End". Savell is a SAVAGE in battle, because it's life and death, nothing else matters besides RIPPING APART THEIR INTERNAL ORGANS AND BATHING IN THEIR BLOOD...You're gonna have nightmares from that, right? Imagine if I yelled that at the guy, he'd have a heart attack.

Besides, these tourneys are SUPPOSED to be full of gore and carnage, that's what all the NPCs watching want! They WANT me to rip chunks of flesh from my enemy and feast upon their still-living body before cracking open their skull and spilling their brains all over the floor...Yeah, this may be scary to the other contestants, but the AUDIENCE LOVES IT.

...I would've been great in the Hunger Games.

Aahahaha. Trust me I won't have nightmares. I have seen some pretty nasty stuff in my days.

Anyways let's continue. Also, this is it for now, I'll be back in about 2 or 3 hours.

"....yeah, I'm not trying that. I'm going to take the Blue door."

~You proceed through the blue door. As you enter the room you notice it's extremely small. As the door slams behind you, you turn around to open it. But it is now locked shut. You look at your surroundings but there's not much. A few ahead of you there is some water. You get closer and examine it. It seems to be pretty deep. You look up and a screen on the wall turns on. A shadowed figure appears with his voice modified. He says, ''There is only 1 way through. In exactly 5 seconds will will begin to shut the walls in, in this room. If you do not take your path you will surely die. Good Luck.''

(You can go into the water and try and find a way out or hold your breath until you die. xD You can also try and break the door. Anything is possible here, make your choice. Btw I already had everything planned for every room, so they never changed in my head. Most things I do improvise though.)

I go into the house and if no ones there I will loot all I can and go to the shops/stores to loot everything.

~You enter the house with no regard. There appears to be no one, but the house seems to have been ransacked. You search every nook and cranny but find nothing. You go upstairs to the third floor and look out the window. You check and see a light beam in the distance. You then remember from the show the timer that is put at the top of the dome. You run outside and check it. 20 Minutes til the gates drop. The gates which lead to the other players. You decide to quickly hurry to the stores and see if you can manage to find stuff. You find:
*2 Uncooked Fish
*1 Big Bottle of Water
*10 extra bullets
*3 9mm Full Magazines.
That is all you could find. Where do you head off to now? You ask yourself. You could head to the beam of light where you know weapons of all sorts and food and supplies will be found. But this is the middle of the dome. You know that here is where all the gates meet, and where bloody battles take forth. You could head down the path of the village down to the mountains, or down to the east of the village where there is a large forest, which appears to be immensely huge.

Oh, my first fight! Excellent. I know just how to do this. A person is most vulnerable after swinging and missing, so I step back to evade the next knife swing, then attempt to grab and hold his knife arm, also leaning forward and SINKING MY TEETH INTO HIS TASTY JUGULAR VEIN. CARNAAAAAAAAAGE. TASTY LIFE FORCE OF ANIMALS. REVEL IN THE SHEER DELIGHT OF TAKING THE LIFE FROM YOUR ENEMY, WATCH AS THEY WRITHE IN AGONY-So anyway...Considering it only takes about 12 seconds for all your blood to flow out of an opened jugular, this fight should be over quickly. "That's why they call me "The End". I say to my almost certainly dead foe.

~As you attempt to bite into his neck you are successful. Before you rip him to shreds he strikes you with his blade stabbing you in the stomach. Luckily it doesn't hit any major organs or arteries so you get up and grab your sword. You can search the cabin, go outside, or head to the caves. You'll need to get your wound healed as well.
[10HP from open wound]

Ow. Well, at least the wound's pretty minor. I take the man's knife (You can never have too many weapons!) and then search the cabin for some supplies, especially cloth to bandage the wound with. With just 10 HP i'd be wasting the med-pack.

I turn to Tarren and quickly tell him a strategy to get around the guy so one of us can pull the lever:
First..we both dart towards him..then, at about 5-7 feet from him, we both dart in opposite directions. After doing so...I charge towards him first..then have Tarren follow suit shorty after I do so. When Tarren gets close enough, I dart towards the lever to pull it, having him slam himself into the guys back in hopes of at least distracting him from myself

A simple distraction/bait/confusion stratagem..hopefully it work
