This takes place in Modern times (2050) where a private company kidnaps people, gives them a survival pack with food, water and a pistol of their choice then films it all for people who subscribe to watch. then drops them into a giant sprawling city in the middle of nowhere to fight to the death with others. and YOU have been chosen. The city itself is a mega city in the Gobi Desert, with climate control and every terrain imaginable, though mostly urban.

Now you start off small but if you please the crowd you'll be given or may even find more

Too many options, dude. "At least three, at least three, etc."

You need to chop a lot of that out. People don't join RPGs to write a story. They join RPGs to be thrown into another world, and they don't like filling in too much paperwork between here and there. Plus, "Ground Zero" already has all of this.

Plus, "Ground Zero" already has all of this.

Don't die, good luck and smile for the cameras!"

After picking up the pack, if I haven't already I'm going to head for the nearest building and enter if I can.
Also will look out for any thing remotely edible.

you walk to the nearest building, and carefully move inside, it's an office building. you find a a nearly empty vending machine, the glass is broken and there are a couple of Twix in it, you take them and stuff them in your pack. But you hear the floor above you creak as someone moves slowly by.

I check the nearest building for safety, then grab the pack and go in if it's clear.

you enter an apartment block and into the nearest one, it's empty.

you continue on into a sort of community, which is eerily empty. You walk down the street, and reach a intersection where you see a hooded figure skulking through a park across the street, his back is turned to you and he seems to be going towards a set of shops across the park.

there are no big overflowing gunstores, but you happen across a convenience store, entering it reveals to be looted mostly clean

I look for any spare lumber/plastic and something to use as a hammer.

short of prying off the walls and counters there is no wood or plastic, nor a hammer
