“Greetings, and welcome to Berlaga,” arose a garbled voice in your ear that sounded neither benign nor welcoming. A square of transparent colored light appeared in front of your left eye, and the head of a dark figure was depicted in that incorporeal window. The figure wore a black hood that obscured its face, but you could make out some sort of device worn over its mouth and chin - a voice synthesizer.
“I am known as the Referee,” the anonymous, monotone voice continued. ““You have been selected to participate in the Invisible Tournament - a grand mixed martial arts battle royale against the world‘s top one-thousand fighters. You have been relieved of all weapons, you will fight hand-to-hand in close quarters combat. There are no other rules. You are all assigned a rank at random, from 1 to 1000. You have one week to score in the top one hundred ranks, or you will die. The tournament starts…now. Let the games begin.”
With that closing remark, the figure disappeared, leaving you alone in the solitude of a great island wilderness.
Hey all! Please don’t be turned away by this china-wall of a post I wrote! It’s not very complicated, it just takes quite a few words to explain. Please bear with me!
The story behind this RP, inspired by fighting games such as Tekken and DOA, has been stewing in my head for a long time now, and I want to give it a try. I have the entire plot in my head, what I’m looking for is just a few people to be the primary protagonists and live it out. Just a fair warning: I want to actually finish this RP, so I encourage only those of you who will stick it out to the end to join. I don’t plan on it taking very long - perhaps a few weeks of consistent posting - so don’t join if you think you can’t post regularly, (once or twice every day or so is all I ask), or won’t play through the conclusion. So you know what you’re getting into, I will now describe the basic ideas.
The setting takes place on a large deserted island where 1000 people from across the globe have been forcibly abducted and delivered to. The abductees must participate in a mysterious event, the Invisible Tournament, in order to survive. Players start in remote locations with nothing more than the clothes they are wearing and a strange device - much like a wireless headset - fused around their left ear. This device, known as a Scanner, projects a holographic eyepiece in front of their left eye. Its purposes and functions will be discovered in-game.
Also, the exact nature of the event is a mystery as well. (To be discovered in-game). But what I will let you in on is this:
The tournament has no rules, other then achieve one of the top one-hundred ranks in seven days time.
To gain a higher rank, you must fight someone of higher rank then yourself. To gain that rank, you must kill its previous holder.
Needless to say, this game is going in the Extreme section, for action violence, blood, some language, (and of course!) X-rated content. Note: While sexual scenes are a possibility and bonds and relationships between characters are encouraged, I want most of the emphasis to be on the story and the fighting, not the sex.
If you like this idea and wish to join, PM me or reply in this thread. I don’t mean to be selective, but I’m only looking for a few (2 or 3?) players, so first-come is not first-serve. I will not have a character of my own per se, but I will control all NPCs, including several major characters that players will inevitably encounter. What I ask is that you post or PM me a profile describing your character as thoroughly as you can. I also have my own rules for the fighting mechanics, which I will post later.
So, who wants in?
