Now many of you are no doubt wondering, "Why am I here? What is this about? And why does it feel like someone hit me over the head?" So allow me to answer some of all those questions.
You are here to take part in an exciting and fun forum based RPG, for science! Once you've completed the simple and fun mandatory character creation step, your carefully thought out avatar will be put through a series of amusingly gruesome events in a desperate bid for incoming title drop Survival!
Now I know what you're thinking literally if you've had the coffee or donuts, "How does this obviously enjoyable game work?" Well just sit back and I'll explain everything*
The game begins for you when you fill out the following character creation form, most of it is pretty self explanatory, and everything on it is mandatory.
Once your character has been created, s/he will be relocated to our top of the line testing facility***, where they will be RPed to the, literal, breaking point.Name
A physical description
Please allocate the following skill points into the following stats as it pleases you: 75, 70, 65, 60, 50, 40
"How is this game run?" I observe 56% of you thinking; by the way, did I mention the free coffee and donuts? Anyway, the game play itself is very easy, as it is modeled after a Text Parser****, though with far fewer cases of can't get ye flask. For the most part, you describe what actions you wish to take, and the ever fair and benevolent GM***** will describe your environment, successes, and failures******.
"What's the story?" my little widget here is informing me 67% of you are thinking. Why, a most definitely not ripped off Portal/Paranoia plot line involving your character's merciless treatment for the furthering of science by being ran like a rat in a maze through a high tech facility guided by a cold and sterile AI that cares more about data than said character's health and well being.
So, who's interested? I should also point out that at this point, the exits are all sealed and if we don't reach quota, the room will be pumped full of a deadly neurotoxin. And no, I can't tell you what the quota is, that might bias the end results.
No pushing please, there are forms enough for everyone.
