This is exactly fashioned after the movie The One. This was discussed by another, but it seemed our plans for the RP wasn't going in two different directions.
I would like the two of us would be formerly partners in crime. I was thinking we were murderers of those who trafficked drugs or people. I was going for someone who had tattoos all over his body, like Latino gang members or Yakuza. When genderswapped, the tattoos are retained, but on a female body.
The technology and reason for use would be that they first used it on inmates waiting for the death penalty. To be more humane and to calm the societies, inmates were exiled to earth-like planets which served as arenas for pay-per-view type of program. Like Hunger Games and Death Race, the program was broadcasted to the growing adult population. Some planets were large gladiator-type arenas, where exiled inmates were forced to fight to the death to become the victor, who would gain his freedom. Other planets were large reserves for an alien race. This was reserved for those who killed or oppressed many. Exiles were put on the run, to escape the alien who used the inmates as wild game. The particular planet I wanted to portray in this RP was a survival-type of arena. The first inmates who were exiled were men, but when technology for genderswapping was perfected, the change pertain to your sentence. If you killed or trafficked drugs or money as a criminal, the inmate would only be exiled. If an inmate was a rapist, ran a prostitution ring or trafficked people (most often sex slaves), you got the extra punishment of being changed into the opposite gender before being exiled. Other times, this was randomly chosen.
The survival-type of arena was broadcasted as pay-per-day, 24/7 live feed. Cameras would be on everyone, even in the private areas. The program was to portray the life and struggles of an exiled inmate. Challenges were given to force inmates to compete for perks and rewards. Such perks were asylum and protection from danger outside of the competition. Other perks were for higher-tiered vendors and ability to get higher-quality shelters. Rewards most likely were in the form of credits, used to buy things like food, water and protection in the form of weapons and armor. Ultimate prizes which were expensive was a ticket to the orbital stations, for permanent residence and freedom.
The setting would be like the Earth of Elysium. The elite live and are sustained on orbital platforms, which the exiles live and compete on the surface.
As a precaution, our characters at first would be cuffed magnetically to each other. The cuffs, which is the our means of getting objectives and seeing out credit balances, would be ones that couldn't be taken off and it was our label that we were exiles.
It's a bit much. I want to see your take on it and see if we can meld them together.
