Metro 2033: Belorusskayan Trading Firm OOC
Dobra Pazhalovat, friends. Welcome to your new life. Most of you come here from between here in Belorusskaya to Sokol, but some come from far. Some of you are young, some are older, and only a few have experience. I can't speak for everyone, but I'm going to guess that you're here for one of two reasons. Either you want to risk it to earn more money than the meager wage you do now, or you're just bored out of your skull on plantations and want to see the Metro. Either way, welcome to the family.
The Belorusskayan Trading Firm is a new venture established by some entrepreneurs in Belorusskaya. They're currently hiring people to man their caravan(s) and get them safely through the metro. Experience is not required, and likely won't be had anyway. You'll be given a signing bonus of 100 MGR, and be able to purchase what you wish from the Firm Commissary with it. The team, possibly teams, will be headed up by a Captain, who essentially gets to have the final word on any decision with their team. They also act as near sub-mods, giving random events and guiding over their journey. Good luck.

1. General RP rules. Don't be an asshat and ruin it for everyone.
2. You're not a superhero. You're likely a teen or young adult with little experience using a firearm (though may have some in handling and other non-shooting aspects), and you're closer to malnourished than athletic. Obviously, there is room for variation.
3. You'll be given a certain number of points to decide certain aspects of your character. Also, make sure it fits your character. You can't have never held a gun, and be a superb marksman. As the story progresses, and you make consistent use of a skill, you'll improve with it.
Race: (Pick only ones that would be found in Russia)
Clothing: (No armor)
Equipment and Weapons: (Likely no weapons outside of knives. Think of everything you would need and what fits you. Include what was purchased at the commissary and your leftover bonus in parenthesis)
Job Applying For: (Caravaneer is for most, Captain is for those with knowledge of the series)
Qualifications for Captain: (If you want to be a Captain, put your character's qualifications. They can be someone with military experience for this. In parenthesis, put your knowledge of the universe)
Stats (20 points)
Athleticism: (You're ability to run fast and long, jump high, and strike hard)
Marksmanship: (You're ability to hit things. Still depends on weapon)
Intelligence: (Intellect and intuitive thinking with mechanics and such)
Intuition: (You're ability to "detect danger" and things that are wrong. The higher you are, the more accurate you'll be and less false alarms you'll have. But, you'll also feel danger that won't affect you)
Mental Fortitude: (The amount you can withstand fear)
The currency used is mgr, or Military Grade 5.45x39mm Rounds. Now, after having been used up, the round is sometimes remade with the old casing. These are called "dirty" rounds. They cannot be used as money, and are therefor perfect for someone who doesn't want to shoot away their paycheck.
