       I'm thinking I'll put in a character sheet.  This week is slightly busy and I did want to clear up the background a little.  That helped, thanks.   8-)

        One other question:

             Is the game actually known to anyone outside the corporation?  I mean, does it have a public face of any sort?  (Is it televised?  A subject of tabloid speculation even?  Or is it strictly insider information?  Does anyone else go there besides the players and elite staff that run the place?)  I guess I'm just kind of trying to imagine whether players would have any other background with any of this, or whether it would involve any real-time danger for one's image in the rest of the world.


       Just since it keeps coming up, to reiterate...  I'm actually quite cozy with having some people brought in by outlandish tastes or dubious tactics or relationships.  It doesn't surprise me OOC-wise; it's more something I wanted to have.   I'm thinking mine will probably be a female with a certain addiction to reasonable challenges...  However, the family may have done subtle things to make that more of a "rampant" addiction and then the circumstances of the actual challenges are well, not entirely reasonable.  From there, I imagine a mix of curiosity, bizarre outcomes, and momentum will do it. 

I'll just fuss over character details for a day or few here.

This game has only just recently been devised, so only high-rollers would know anything about it.  Before the games have started, there will only be rumours and small amounts of tabloid speculation with no evidence of any sort to support them.  Only major-level hackers will have any information about it, but even then they can't really say much about it.  Once the games have ended, they will be about as well known as underground fighting rings in that the general public won't know much about them except for the fact that they exist.  The events of the games will be recorded live and uploaded to a website that can be accessed by only those with the right security clearance.  In other words, it's basically an underground reality show that's seen by the same sort of people who plays backroom poker, bet on dog-fights, and attend black-market auctions, except it's all of them all around the world combined.  Everyone above entry-level within one of OROCHI's many companies will also have access to the website.  Due to the website's abnormal security, the number of people who can hack into it can be counted on one hand.

The only way a player could have any concrete prior knowledge about the games is if he/she has an extensive criminal background of some sort, is friends with someone who'd have insider information, or already an employee of one of OROCHI's many companies.

Character Sheets Thread is now up!

For those of you still interested in playing, I have just one question for you.  Do you want to play against each other or do you want to play on the same team?

I second that. Changing my vote to "against each other".

Alright, since you're playing against each other, that means each of you will be working under a different heir/heiress.  Except for Faeli's character, who I'm guessing will be participating as an heiress.  Do each of you want to come up with your own heir/heiress or do you want me to NPC them for you?

By the way, Faeli, just wanted you to clear something up for me.  From the biography you gave Ally, the impression I got was that Nolan did a background check on Ally and discovered that she's a direct descendent of one of OROCHI's founders and therefore qualified to compete as an heiress.  He then decided to invest in her by loaning her enough money to hire the best participants possible to work under her.  If this is not true and it's Nolan who's in fact the direct descendent, then the only way he could send Ally to compete as an heiress is if he adopted her.  In either case, if Ally wins the whole competition, she would be granted a thousand times more wealth and power than Nolan could ever hope to achieve.  Hmm... could be a fun outcome.  :p

I'll see about starting up an IC thread sometime by tomorrow.  ^_^

I am going to assume she is, technically, adopted :P

       Is this still open?  Wanted to check. 

       I kind of got whopped by other things for a few days and finals have come along for me to (almost) be grading...  But I should have some more time this month if things are clicking.  Next is kind of a crap shoot so far, but anyway.

        I might work under Ruby.  Although I'm not quite clear on how much the nobility will actually be doing.

I have a sort of general character idea, just trying to come up with a few more pieces.

The "nobility" gets to choose which of their own "employees" get to participate in each game.  They are also allowed to participate themselves.
