    WELCOME

    TO POST-APOCALYPTIC MAYHAM!
    a survival game

    THE SETTING
    You are included in a group of people who are members of the 21st century "Civ Fanatics Forums". By accident you have survived a biological attack, having been shut in an experimental "stasis chamber" in North-Western Colorado. It has failed, after an unknown amount of time.

    HOW DO YOU WIN?
    Who knows?. This game will incorporate things from "Roll to Dodge", "the Rebel Game", and the "Academy Game". The last one standing will be crowned the winner. But do you survive by becoming a hermit, or conquering the world? Will you work as a team, or split into waring factions? Its up to you.

    RULES
    Not many.
    Playing phases go for 48 hours, with a 24 hour break in between. Day and night will last as long as it takes me to post and reply. I will start the "day phase" by giving you a situation. Then you choose actions among yourselves, highlighting them in bold. I will give you the results of your actions and the way any NPC's respond to them as quickly as i can, in a color you will pick in character creation. You can PM actions to me as well. There will be a summary writeup at the end of every day session, giving you a quick look at what everyone else has been doing.

    CHARACTER CREATION

    List your:

    Age:
    Height:

    A Brief History: Born in a desert Kyrgyzstan to refugee Mayan parents, and abandoned at a young age when they were unable to feed him. TI has subsequently been raised as an assassin disguised as an average nomad, constantly making incursions into other countries to kill targets (usually infidels). He got assinged a mission to plant bombs on the Golden Gate bridge, but his plane from Tehran to San Francisco crashed in Colorado. He survived along with six others, which he gradually (secretly) killed, and threw the bodies off geological features. He has had a revelation from Allah himself recently, telling him to not kill the innocent, even if they were infidels.

    Name: Blake Dugmore
    Age: 25
    Height: 6'1
    Weight: 165lb
    Profession: Geneticist
    3 Notable Hobbies or Skills: Subtly injecting others with unmarked syringes, assisting clown-led pranks and being beaten to within an inch of death by Security for the previous two.
    Your Favorite Color (no two can match): Fabulous pink
    A Brief History: Originally a geneticist on board a deep-space space station, Blake was never the most popular crewmember with security, often being thrown into the brig for his antics (particularly ones involving the theft of their beloved Space Segways).
    However the final straw proved to be when, having been told to create a clone of the Captain from his still-warm corpse, he did so.
    Unfortunately, in the process, he inadvertantly turned the Captain into a small Chimp, which was quickly taken by the Chef (who was unaware of the primate's captainly status) and turned into Spaghetti and Monkey Balls.
    The Chef, of course, was beaten to death by Security with their stun-batons set to "off".
    However, they had a worse fate in mind for Blake.
    He was to be thrown into the Singularity, the contained black hole which acted as the station's engine and gravity generator.
    This should have torn him asunder, before adding the gooey remains to its form, but fate had other plans.
    Just as he hit the event horizon, there was a fluctuation within the Singularity generator, changing it's properties significantly.
    The next thing he knew, he was in a stasis chamber in Colorado during the 21st century, a foot or so in the air above one of the past's inhabitants.
    Gravity made it's place felt, and he landed on the man's neck with a sickening crunch, killing the poor past-dweller instantly.
    The other people within the chamber didn't seem to notice (or, alternatively, care), and so Blake is trying his best to settle into his new earth-bound life in this technological backwater.

    No, not Alzheimers...

    Although all that time "handling balls" can be dangerous...

    Especially without adequate protection..
