Survival Island! The newest reality series from the makers of Prison Riot and Lost Hiker. How will contestants fair on a remote island populated by the worst criminals that society has to offer? Will they prevail to win the ten million dollar jackpot? Or will they flee before the first rainfall! Tune in to see! Monthly subscriptions to Survival Island are only $199.99!
The Rules of Survival Island
Survival Island is divided in seasons of one month each, the contestant with the highest cash total at the end of the season will receive a cash bonus of no less than $10,000,000!
Each day, contestants will compete for a share of a $50,000 pot. Will they work together? Or backstab and infight to try and force others to leave?
Rescuing another contestant from the foul grasp of the criminals will earn a contestant a bonus of between five and fifty thousand! Will contestants risk it all for the chance to improve their standing?
Small metal chits have been hidden throughout the island, and given to the various criminals roaming around. Each chit can be exchanged for equipment on a ship located offshore! Of course, signaling said ship can attract unwanted attention. Any chit a person carries when they leave the island is additionally worth a bonus of $2500!
A contestant can leave the island at any time by saying the phrase "Beam Me Up!" or, if they are unable to talk, by lifting the pinky and middle finger on each hand at the same time. However, once they have left, their cash standing is locked in and they cannot return to compete again. The Criminals
We have recruited criminals from prisons around the world and let them loose on Survival Island! Although they will not kill or maim contestants, they have free rein to do whatever else they please.
The criminals are working off sentences ranging from twenty-five years to life, but are willing to risk it all for a chance to lessen their sentence. While contestants can and will kill criminals, any that survives for ten seasons will be given a chance at an early parole! The System
Below are are my thoughts for the system. Questions, comments, and criticisms are more than welcome, since I'm sure there are problems with it.
To keep contests between players fair, the outcome will be determined using a one hundred sided roll.
The character's occupation determines a general range of skills that the character has. Any skill that can be reasonable justified as being covered by the occupation can be rolled with a 60% chance of success.
The character's skill 1 and skill 2 are what they are an expert at, and can be rolled with an 80% of success.
Any other roll has a 20% chance of success.
An Advantage is something about a character that improves their chances with certain skills. Athletic, Good Eyesight, etc. It increases the chance of related skills by +10%
A disadvantage is something about a character that decreases their chances iwth certain skills. Overweight, Blind without Glasses, Unlucky, etc. It decreases the chance of related skills by -10%
The winner of a contested roll is determined by who exceeds their roll by a greater amount. So if player A rolls an 79 on an 80%, and player B rolls a 55 on a 60%, player B will will as they beat their chances by 5 points instead of 1.
Note: Rolls are ONLY required for actions that may influence other players. Crafting a weapon, sneaking, attacking, etc. The Island
I will try to get a crude map up at some point.
