*Co-Creator and Original Idea, Credited to Dual*
Wanting to see if we could get this idea rolling again. I need lots of people!
Here is the story so far...
[Background and Story]
Your character will awake on a train going from olden day New York to Washington DC. They will have no memory, no name or no clue what the hell is going on. Aside from the you, there will be a total of 22 people on that train. The train is driven automatically and you cannot see everyone on the train, as it has coaches, therefore there is one other person with you in it. You open your eyes and you see a cell phone in your hand. At that very moment a loud ringing sound occurs in your phone and it seems everyone else on the entire train. You answer it immediately and a cheerful yet daunting voice answers and explains the rules of the game.
"Want to play a game? Of course you do, you have no choice!" the voices gives out a giggle "As you can already see, you completely forgot who you are, where you are going and what on earth you are doing here. It's very simple I injected you with a formula that blocks the memories of your past. Are you scared yet? Don't be, it's fun!" That voice giggles again. "You must know there is a bracelet on your wrist that will not move and/or come off, it will resemble your name for this game. As well as a hard steel necklace that will self destruct in 22 days if you don't kill 2 people, that doesn't come off either. Why must you need a animal to represent you? Well, you simply don't have your name, do you? There is a total of 21 other people like you right now, but with only few differences. I'm going to need you to check your back-left pocket right now, but do not show the front of it away from you quite yet. As you can see on the way other end of the coach, there is someone else there. You wouldn't want one of your enemies to know your card already. This card will have a special ability that will give you an enhancement in the game. Either it be defensive, or offensive. To use it, simply point the card towards the enemy and say it's name. Oh, you think that is it? Just simply kill the person in front of you? Not quite!" The speaker mocks you. "You will have exactly 22 days to kill at least 2 enemies and collect their cards. You can use their cards once you destroy them, the same way you do yours. At the 22 day mark, that steel necklace around your neck will destroy you or release you depending on your progress. You cannot remove it, don't try. Red flags mark out of bound areas, if you go more than ten feet past them your necklace will exploded. But, remember, you may need to kill 2 people but so does everyone else. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
The phone flicks off and the trains stop. At once the train coaches suddenly starts to shake and spin in spirals. It seems they don't want everyone so close to each other. As your coach stops you fall out the coach door at your end as well as your counterpart, the coach sealing up.
[Rules, Regulations and Extra Information]
oo1. The cards will be given out randomly, I will PM them.
oo2. The table will be your guidance.
oo3. The card is alive and will tell you its ability as you use it.
oo4. The table will keep track of cards that are revealed.
oo5. The trinket is your choice, however no weapon can be used.
oo6. Simply fill the CS, post it and let me okay it. Then I'll send you your card.
oo7. Absolutely no god-modding, not everyone can stay alive. Hence it being a game.
oo8. When using character simply put their trinket at the top when actually posting in the IC.
oo9 After every two deaths, another ability will be added to each card, thus not making the game to be totally the same. I will step in and have the person call, telling them how to use it.
o10 Remember, the characters don't know the abilities until they use them..
o11 When you collect more than one card, and successfully kill someone. You regain a bit of your past, and have that cards ability as well.
o12 As far as killing someone, not all abilities will be offensive. Therefore, bows and arrows, swords and other olden day items can be found. A call will be motioned when items will be dropped from crates.
o13 As far as the setting, it will be in a large plain, forest, collapsed city and waterfall. There is no civilization around nor can you reach it.
o14 If an ability has a time on it, you can only use it once per hour in the IC. If it's permanent(as it will state), then you will not ever need to actually call out the name again.
This is for any type of questions I will be asked over time and I will answer them, then type them on here for future references.
Q:"What do you say when you are trying to use your ability?"
A:When you first start out you will have one ability, you will say the card name to use it. After kills more abilities will come available and the GM aka crazy lady will call you and tell you how to use each one. You will also receive a PM from me what your new ability is, but remember your characters do not know what they are until they use them.
This will slowly keep track of the game as well as the day to day summary below it.
