A Shot at Prime Time
« on: June 15, 2010, 02:41:14 AM »
THIS FALL...


FROM THE CREATORS OF SILENT CHEER & BLACK LILY...


COMES...


NO MAN'S LAND

HOW FAR WILL YOU GO FOR THE GOLD?

CHECK YOUR LOCAL LISTINGS





It's 2043.  With the world population crawling ever higher, and the prisons getting ever more crowded, sometimes murder isn't the crime it once was.  Capitalizing on this, TV shows has been eager to start showing all the violence and sex they can get away with.  And with the loss of the FCC in 2038, the bar is being set ever higher.  But just how far are the executives willing to go?

In one small town, the executives gathered everyone together with one purpose... to push them to the limits of cooperation with one another.  Fifteen million dollars is up for grabs, the largest ever sum ever to be paid out to contestants.  The rules are simple... everyone alive at the end of their eight weeks gets an equal share of the money, regardless of what they did during that time.  But like any such game show, there's a rather large catch.

First, all the water and electricity is cut off.  The grocery store still has some, but it's not enough to last for eight weeks.  Then there are the outsiders, those who come looking for mercy and aid.  There's already not enough supplies, and now some are coming and begging for aid, while others are there to take it by force.

In a town of 100 people, who will make it to the end of those 8 weeks?  And who will end up face down in the dirt, cursing their fellow townsfolk for all eternity?  Stay tuned to find out!

Colour me interested! 

Just a few questions.  Firstly, are there any specific types of characters you're looking for?  Any archetypes that you don't want to see?  Are the contestants thrown into this thing without equipment, or are they allowed to bring a set number of personal items/weapons (to a point)/supplies?  Lastly, will character death be an issues, or is this less about seeing if all the players can survive and more about how they adapt and to what lengths they'll go to to last to the end of the two month period?

This sounds like it'll be a ton of fun, and then some.

1) Are there any specific types of characters you're looking for?
At the moment, no.  I'm eager to see a wide range of characters from all different backgrounds and skills, from unemployed vagabond on up.

2) Any archetypes that you don't want to see?
No one with obvious criminal records such as homicide, rape, illegal drug use, etc.  Anyone with a felony conviction is not allowed in.  Yet.  Some might get hired later to add flavor to the show.

3) Are the contestants thrown into this thing without equipment, or are they allowed to bring a set number of personal items/weapons (to a point)/supplies?
Each contestant is allowed to bring up to thirty kilos of personal gear.  This includes weapons, ammunition, food, medical supplies, and personal items.  Armor, communications equipment, illegal narcotics and sexual paraphernalia are strictly prohibited and all contestants will be searched prior to starting the show.

4) Will character death be an issues, or is this less about seeing if all the players can survive and more about how they adapt and to what lengths they'll go to to last to the end of the two month period?
Each player must sign a waiver prior to participating on the show waving responsibility should that contestant die or be seriously harmed during the two week period.  Under no circumstances will the studio interfere with the game.  Death is not the goal of the game, but will serve as a fundamental component to increase the stakes of the game.  Remote cameras with audio will focus on the change in each player as they adapt to survive in their new environment.

Haha, I am totally down for this, I don't have time to write up a character right now, but I will when I get off work tonight. 9ish, if that's okay. And I will be playing a video game enthusiast, who thinks he is good with a gun because he plays a lot of Call of Duty. Or something equal entertainment value, should I think of something better while at work. =P

A question just so I don't make assumptions.  What is the area around Lake Sirius like?  Are there some wilderness, or is the entire landscape around the town basically leveled?

Since I'm basing it off a real world location, I can tell you.  It's mostly level, but there are a few small, rolling hills around.  The map was the best I could find that incorporated the split highway running down the center of town, which it actually does in real life.  Most of the trees have been cleared away, but there are a few here and there, mostly pine and poplar.  The surrounding forests are choked with underbrush, meaning unless you find an ATV or deer trail, you're going to have a tough go through it.  Since it's June in southern Arkansas, expect high temperatures, near 100 degrees F, with a humidity of about 80% during the morning and climbing to about 90% during the day.  Rain is going to be non-existent almost for the first four weeks, with scattered, almost daily showers as the last four weeks move in.  The rain will come down for about an hour around noon, and then the sun will come out and fry everything.

After receiving a pm from the GM of this RP telling me that my posting style is not what she wants in her RP, I also decided to drop out. Good luck all.

Name: Jonathan Stiles
Age: 31
Gender: Male
Occupation: United States Army Captain

Jonathan Stiles was hand chosen by General Robert Steele to be a representative of the United States for the brief period that No Man's Land would be on the air.  He was chosen for the assignment before Steele took his post, but due to a falling out years ago, General Steele decided to punish Stiles with the worst unit available.  The platoon chosen was a group known for getting into trouble and staying there.  Drunkeness, illegal gambling, anything they could get away with.
