Whatever you did, it must have been horrible, disgusting, sickening... Just the worst criminals in the world where sent to this place.
The Machine is a high security prison, but weirdly enough the only guards that can be seen are the ones at the entrance door. And the only reason they are there is to stop anyone from entering, because that door never opens from the inside.
Inside you have access to electricity and water, and you'll get food once a day. You are free to roam and do whatever you want, because they know you'll never, ever get out of this place.
The Machine is a green building, where everything inside seems like a mix of mechanic with biological materials. You can never tell if the place is made of metal or flesh. And the green goo that covers the walls and floor doesn't help either. The worst thing is the eyes. They appear everywhere looking at you, observing you. And sometimes you can hear a snicker from afar. Or the sound of steel hitting the walls. The Machine is horror indeed, and you're left there alone to survive.
This is all you need to know about The Machine before you start. It's not everything though, as the place is full of secrets, and a couple characters, some that will help you and some that won't. It's your mission to, with the rest of the prisoners, live and explore the place while you try to survive the best you can.
This canon atmosphere is heavily influenced by Silent Hill, Alien and A New Machine Part 1 & 2, the last two being songs by Pink Floyd. If you know the works you may know more or less what to expect.
1 - Try to remain active, a post a day doesn't hurt, but at least from three to three days. If you can't, just PM me or post here that you can't and it'll be alright.
2 - Characters will not be supernatural creatures or anything. They'll be normal humans, the canon is sci-fi though, so you can put some elements of that in the backstory. Don't go full sci-fi though. Some technical advances compared to our current technology? Okay. Star Trek/Star Wars type of sci-fi? Not so much.
3 - All other forum and RP rules apply.
Name: Naviel Sunderland
To note that she contains various burns around her body.
Guilty of: Arson, murder and escape from previous prison
No one does know what happened to make Naviel be what it she is. Some say it's just a bunch of bad luck events, some say she was doomed from the start.
One thing is certain, long before the crimes, Naviel already had a passion for fire. She was never very social, but had her little group of friends. She was often joked on by others though.
At the age of 17 she was found inside a building that had crumbled not long before. She had been locked for 3 days and when rescuing her, the firemen also found a body of a student, completely burned and eaten. Curiously enough, neither of those had been the cause of death, rather having his head smashed by a rock. Naviel was then found guilty of that crime and sent to a prison near her hometown. After a year a friend of her smashed a truck full of gasoline against the prison. Naviel used the gasoline to burn one of the prisoners personally and then the rest of the prison. It didn't burn much and Naviel didn't run far before getting caught again.
The next time she was sent to a asylum where she was found to suffer from pyromania and paranoia, she's also very anti-social, and can't eat meat, or more curiously, be touched by males.
After the study she was declared a danger to everyone including herself and sent to The Machine
If anime-style images are not acceptable for this roleplay then I'll adjust accordingly.
Guilty of: Three counts of kidnapping, assault and battery. Three counts of murder in the first degree. One count of arson. Illegal possession of narcotics and assault weaponry. Conspiring to bring assault weaponry to several public locations and open fire on innocent civilians.
Ellis Briar is what most would call the "quiet one." He had absolutely no friends to speak of, and you could be sure that his parents would express worry for him because of his lack of social interaction. They WOULD express said worry if they were still alive, that is.
Two weeks after night of the disappearance of Ellis's parents and his younger sister, Ellis was taken into captivity from the front yard of his burning home after admitting to being the one to start the fire. Upon interrogation, Ellis admitted to drugging and restraining his family in the basement of the home, assaulting them with melee weaponry such as a baseball bat and crowbar on several occasions, until he murdered them by burning them all alive after two weeks of holding them in captivity
Ellis then admitted to the possession of, and relinquished the locations of, the drugs he used on his victims, and two assault rifles he had purchased illegally. The guns, he explained, were going to be used to open fire on innocent civilians at locations such as his school, the local mall and movie theater, and other locations.
Briar was immediately found guilty of all of the charges against him and was sentenced to life in The Machine.
Reserve a spot for me too! I'll post my CS later on this post.
Name: November Long
Appearance: 5 foot eight, shoulder length black curly hair. Thin, fit, muscular, athletic. Sea green eyes, thin cheekbone and jaw.
Guilty of: 40 kidnappings, 92 murders.
Backstory: All throughout school she was the odd person out. She was bullied, teased, stuffed in the toilet etc... That was when she took martial arts, gymnastics and parkour which she excelled at, and used to defend herself.
She finally took gun training when she turned 21, and when she discovered how much she loved them she decided to become a hitman. She was hired to kidnap and murder, but she was finally caught by a sting operation and sent to The Machine.
Left side of face covered in shrapnel scarring, eyes glow blue due to implants, short neon blue hair.
Proven guilty of: 105 murders, 27 counts of torture, 7 counts of human trafficking.
Backstory: Grew up in the slums, joined a gang at a young age and things went downhill from there, heavy involvement in the various gang wars that wracked his home city, the whole gang was busted after taking an assassination job on a very high profile target, once in custody the charges just rolled in as Police examined his life in detail. Sierra is an excellent shot with a sniper (not that this will be much use in prison) and is second-to-none at getting where he wants to be and leaving in a hurry.
@Eb1l 8unny I found the secret. I should get a prize or be put on some list or something.
Aside from that, I should have my CS up soon.
Everyone so far as been accepted. I'm now waiting for Danger and Blimm and then we can start.
To note that I added my character to the OP post.
And I personally prefer anime images, so no, I don't have any problems with that.
