Voyeurs [NC Human, but that may change]

I've decided to classify this as Human NC as that will probably the the most severe of the sexual stuff in it, but I'm not sure how things will pan out untill the game is actually played. You can expect some psychological horror in this one.

The Premise

The year is 2140 and personal technology has made some significant advances.TV shows can now be experienced in a new way. With the right cybernetic implant a viewer can get a TV feed directly into their brain, experiencing everything the characters on the screen can feel.

It is also a time of global meltdown. The earth is polluted and resources are running out. Mankind has set up colonies on the moon and Mars but the light barrier has not been breached. Overcrowding is becoming a big problem and violence and rioting are commonplace. Because of this most of the jaded population have taken to their TV sets and shut themselves away from the world outside.

Now, somebody has found the scripts to an old TV show from over a hundred years ago. A show called "Big Brother". Suddenly a new show is being hyped about. Several contestants will be chosen by audition to live out several weeks of their life on a space station in an undisclosed location. Each week two contestants will be nominated for eviction and one of them will leave. This will continue until only one contestant is left and they will win 50,000,000 credits worth of prize money.

There will be some dark twists to this idea that I can't reveal to prospective players. Lets just say that the game will seem just like Big Brother at first, but by the end it will become something far more sinister.

Characters needed: 3 Male and 3 Female.

Posting Schedule: Twice per week for me (usually Tuesdays and Thursdays)

There will also be 3 Male and 3 Female NPCs introduced. I'd like a female co-GM to help me run the female ones.

If interested then please fill in the form below and PM it to me.

Player Turn ons and turn offs:

Just so I know what I need to do to keep players happy and what to avoid like the plague.

---------------------------------------------------
Player Character Information
--------------------------------------------------
Name:
Age:
Gender:
Nationality:
Ethnic Origin:
Place of Residence:
Native Language:
Sexual Orientation:
Occupation:

Why does your character want to participate in the show?

Physical Appearance
-------------------
This is what other characters will see when looking at yours. Include height, weight, hair colour and length, eye colour. Include any noteworthy characteristics, if normally visible, such as a tattoo, scar, or body piercings.

Personality
------------
Include their general nature, how they act, and also how intelligent they are. Remember, there are different types of intelligence, so be specific. For example, Jane is a very suspicious character, gives out no personal information to people she had just met. Though she has had no form of higher education, she’s very knowledgeable about her place of birth.

Goals
-----

What does your character want out of life?  Long-term (goals that will take years or maybe even the character’s lifetime) and short-term (a more immediate goal, such as finding a place to stay or making a friend) should be listed if noteworthy.

Negative Points
---------------

These are the problems your character has to personally overcome, or are part of their personality/lifestyle/physical description. Things like a short temper, blindness, or being cursed should be listed here. If it is something unique, please detail the exact nature as well. For example, David has an extreme fear of heights he actually becomes physically sick when forced to climb anything or go on top of a high building. If he is not removed from the subject of his fear he will have a severe panic attack.

Character Attributes
---------------------

Please rate the following attributes about yourself using the following words (in order of ability):

Terrible, Poor, Fair, Good, Great, Superb

There are no limits on how you allocate these. As in real life, some people have everything, and some have nothing. Most of us have some good attributes and some bad. Be reasonable and be prepared to justify your choices in the character history.

Physical Strength:
Hand to eye Co-ordination:
Poise and Balance:
Agility and suppleness:
Disease Resistance:
Toxin and drug resistance:
Physical wound resistance:
Stamina:

Intellect and reasoning ability:
Intuitiveness:
Luck:
Personal charm and magnetism:
Physical beauty:
Strength of will:
Level of Sanity:

Character Skills
----------------

Please list here any skills that you feel your character possesses and rate them using the same method as above. Again be sensible. There are people in real life who have a lot of skills but most of us specialise only in certain areas. Be as creative as possible here.

There is no skill list, just describe the skills you have and rate them.

Genetic and Cybernetic Modifications (Optional)
-----------------------------------------------

Describe here any genetic and / or cybernetic modifications your character has and what advantages / disadvantages they give you. For inspiration think of games such as cyberpunk or shadow run, or books by authors such as William Gibson.


Secrets that only the GMs will know (Optional)
----------------------------------------------

Put here anything about your character that you want to remain private from the rest of the players.

Equipment
---------

You are allowed to take a suitcase of clothing with you. In addition you
are allowed to take four additional items with you. These items must not
be electronic in nature. There should provide no means of secret
communication with each other or the outside world. No reading material
is allowed.

History
-------

While you do not have to list every event of your character’s life, please write down some major events in their lives, which had effects on them. Have they had someone close to them die? Did they almost die? Have they been married? Found true love?

The Audition
------------

In order to be accepted for the show the character had to create their own audition recording (this could have been a video recording and / or a virtual reality recorded experience). Please describe this recording as though somebody had just accessed it and was viewing it (this will take the place of the customary writing sample).

To clarify Greenthorn's answer to you on another thread, you need to post an introduction on the Intros forum, and go through the site approval process before PMs and any adult content will be available to you.

This sounds pretty neat.  If and when I get approved and there's still room I'd be up for throwing my name into the hat.

I put this same game up on roleplay online and had a much better response from prospective players. I would really prefer to run it here beacuse of the greater degree of creative freedom that Elliquiy allows for.

I've updated the character request sheet to fit in with the one I created on RPOL.

I'm not sure if I should set some threads up here already or not? I have the game and background pretty much planned out now.

This game looks intriguing.. do you have all of the spots taken yet?  If not.. have you set up forum to start... or should I post characters here?

I still need two more men and two more women.

I could also use a female co-gm to help me out.
