Expendable: Discussion and Application Thread "30 Students, One Week, One Winner" The year is 2054. Opinions aren't accepted any more, your choices in life are limited, you are merely a pawn. Break from this and suffer from the consequences which are usually death or beaten to near death. Your country is run by the new authoritarian United States government. Each year to keep people in line a group of randomly selected students who are in a university are forced to take part in a game of life and death so people who are thinking or are part taking in any acts to try voice their opinion, influence others or over throw their government fear them. This is you. You are a student in California. This means your character varies from the age of 19 to 24. You have no idea of the events about to unfold, to your knowledge you are being offered a chance to go on a field trip, the destination is unknown however it is told you are going to a convention that offers chances to look at different careers your major can lead into. You sadly volunteered either because you wanted, your friend made you, your parents forced you, and whatever the reason you still must face the fact that you'll be pitted against your friends, enemies and crushes for your life. The question is, will you kill and survive or will you be killed? *** Rules and how it works: All right so this is both a role-play and a game to clear that up. Your character might die. I have no guarantees for your character to survive or win. Some of you may get very mad at me, so please refrain from doing so because I may be the reason for the death of your character. It comes down to rolls and your weapon. Rolls: I will be rolling with a 100 sided dice, via a website. This will be the overall success of your said big move (trying to hurt or kill someone, etc). 1-25 will most likely end in a fail. 26-50 you will succeed but not with your original idea. 51-75 you will succeed but not as well as you wanted too and 76 and up will be a success. For example if I wanted to kill Joe by hitting him over the head with a bat and rolled a 1-25 I’d complete miss, with 26-50 I’d most likely hit him but nowhere near the original destination I wanted, if I rolled 51-75 I will most likely hit him over the shoulder and with 76 and up I’d hit him over the head. I will however write more than just the roll but a detailed explanation of what happened. Injuries: You’re player can become injured. Depending on how severe his/her injury you will lose 1-20 points each time you roll until you have healed this said injury, affecting your final roll. Weapons: Like the injuries, your weapon you begin with or you stole off another opponent will have a 1-20 bonus on your roll, affecting your final roll. Random events: Remember I said 30 students. There are others you will encounter controlled by me. You may encounter an innocent, cowering, crying girl, will you kill her? You may encounter a psychotic student majority in football. Expect the unexpected. All encounters won't just be life or death but also test your morals and beliefs. You may even meet someone wanting to team with you. I know it seems like a heavy job for me to control multiple people but I won't be busy at all hopefully and devote my time to this. I want to keep you on your toes so I won’t be biased and send you a character I want to send you instead, I will put the characters in a hat or something and draw them out and that is who you get! The normal rules apply: Be kind to the other fellow role-players outside of the role-play Don't complain if your character dies, I have sworn to be fair Don't be OP (Over-powered) Listen to me and any other GM because whatever we say is final, yeah? Have fun, I made this to enjoy a game with you all, so please enjoy yourselves! *** Character Creation: Ah, so it is time to make a character! First of all you are limited to one character sadly as not everyone will not want two characters and will deem it unfair. So I basically want the well...basics of a character creation format. However if you are lazy or want a guideline, here you go! Name: (Simply the first and last name of your character, maybe even a nickname!) Age: (Remember! Ages of 19-24!) Major: (I am happy for you to major in anything you like. ) Personality: (Share a few traits on how your character acts. Please bold the top three traits that describe him/her the most, please. You’ll find out later why!) Appearance: (The overall look of your character) Attire: (Wear whatever you like, please remember you didn't know what was going to unfold so no bulletproof vests under your attire) Biography: (I'd love to read about your character and sure others will to so please write something!) *** Simple as that! Once you have your bio ready and have read the rules post and if you have any questions please don't be afraid to ask!
