Metro 2033 Roleplay
Exhibition Station has been under siege by a new form of mutant, the Dark Ones. The attacks have taken a brutal toll on the moral and defenses of Exhibition. Alex the stations leader has decided to form an alliance with Riga Station and his step son Artyom has gone with a caravan to give Riga Station some weapons and supplies to seal the deal. Unbeknownst to Alex, Hunter made Artyom give his word to head to Polis Station if he didn't return. When Hunter didn't return Artyom had to find an excuse to leave and head to Polis and he doesn't plan on returning to Exhibition until he eliminates the threat of the Dark Ones. After a day, Alex became worried for his step son and decided to send a small group men to see if he is alright and to bring him back safely.
In this roleplay the characters will be the team sent to find and bring back Artyom-no matter the cost. The team will start off consisting of 2 people, so only 2 people have to show interest for me to get this started. Other players will be able to join, but it will be later on during the roleplay. Also, this is meant to be as realistic as possible. Characters will die during the course of this roleplay, but others will join the group as it progresses.
Players don't get to start off with whatever they want. The two starting players will get to choose items from the armory before they set off. As the players starting posts they should get the weapons they choose and then meet at the exit of Exhibition to board a railcar and embark on their journey. Here is what the first 2 players can choose from:
5.45 Cal Bastard Gun
12 Gauge Double Barrel Shotgun
Tihar Pneumatic Rifle
.44 Magnum Revolver
x5 Throwing knifes
You get one choice from each of the categories, it isn't a wide selection but Exhibition can't afford to equip you with anything better. Players will get to choose what they are wearing, but you cannot start off with any sort of body armor. You will be able to find or purchase that later. As for gear here is what you start out with:
A Gas Mask
30 Minutes worth of gas mask filters
2 Military grade medical kits
20 Military Grade 5.45 Cal bullets
24 .44 Magnum bullets
90 5.45 Cal dirty bullets (If you choose the 5.45 Bastard Gun)
40 12 Gauge shells (If you choose the 12 Gauge Double Barrel)
45 15mm Ball bearings (If you choose the Tihar)
Alright well, just tell me if you guys are interested and when I get 2 people I will put up the OOC where you guys can post your characters and the gear you have chosen. There is no format for writing up your character sheet, just include what you think you need to. After the two characters are up we can begin.
I would like to play this
How will you handle stealth? and shooting? There's limited ammo... I don't know how you could calculate the amount of shots you use or find on corpses.

Sorry about my massive noob status, happened upon this place today and am still getting familiar with everything -
Is this setting one you, gunner1116, made up? Or is it something already established? I get a post-apocalyptic feel, is that correct?
Anyway, interested, but I also understand if you don't want to deal with someone unaccustomed to this forum just yet.
I actually have a system for this. I have different dice to roll for different things that the enemy character has. For example if the players kill a bandit with a Double Barrel shotgun they will be able to get any shells left in the weapon and since bandits aren't the richest people in the world I will roll a d10 and thats how many shells the bandit will have on them. It will with the different enemies and weapons as the game progresses.
As for the keeping track of shooting, the players can tell me how many shots they fire or if they use bursts I will roll a dice to calculate how many bullets they shot. If the player says that they check how much ammunition they have I will tell them.
By the way, suggestions for doing this differently are welcome.
Akexis: This is based off of a Book that was turned into a videogame. If you want to read up on it you can google Metro 2033 Wiki they have loads of good information on their. And yes this is post apocalyptic. And of course you are willing to play even if you aren't really accustomed to the story or forum!

Definitely interested in this.
The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything worthy, it's too late to stop reading it.

Oh cool, found the video to the game trailer. What sort of pace are you looking at? I can only give my attention to this a few times a day.

Maybe. Sounds like a good plot, but I'll watch it for a few days to see how it turns out.
Alright cool. I am putting up the OOC right now. The first two players to show interest, Celtickaven and Akexis will be the first two starting players. Fullm00n you will be the first character to come in later on. Everyone who is interested can post they characters in the OOC.
Akexis as long as you are able to post once everyday it should be fine. If you can't post because you are going on a weekend trip with your family just PM and it will be fine.
