S.T.A.L.K.E.R. RP (Role Play) - X17

Hey guys - Psynexus here (author of the recently finished novel-sized work of fan fiction: "The Zone: Life and Death" .

After finishing my latest (and first) piece of fan fiction, I had a thought: wouldn't it be great if I could do some writing directly with the community? There was a point in the writing of my story where I asked the community to submit characters with biographies for a chance to be in the story. I thought it worked out great and I know those members who had a character featured loved their parts in the story (as well as the rest of it).

So why am I telling you this and how does it affect you - the STALKER player? Well, in my down-time between editing my story and I've been doing some research on what exactly I could do that would allow other people to contribute as well. I think I found it: forum-based role play.

I've never participated in one myself but after browsing a site suggested to me by one of my readers I got some a good idea of the mechanics behind it and think we can pull it off.

So here's how it works:

I will create a character format (like a character sheet for those of you who've ever played D&D) and you will fill it out according to the format. The rules are relatively simple - I'll give you the storyline and start off the story and the next person referenced will then respond with what action they take afterward.

I've seen this work best when the people with characters in the story are active enough to follow-up relatively quickly - otherwise everyone has to wait for one person and the story dies.

-=Rules=-

So if you're interested, read the storyline and follow the guideline below. The rules are simple:

1. You're not a god, don't do anything a normal person couldn't.
2. Speak for your character only, don't control another person's character.
3. Be creative, be detailed, user good grammar and spelling so we can follow you.
4. Have fun.

If you can follow that, then reply with your characters information and when I feel that there are enough we can start and see how far this goes! Alrighty *holds breath*...

-=Story=-

The year is 2012. You are a Mercenary in the Zone. The Ecologist faction has commissioned you for a mission alongside other members of your faction to search for and obtain a mysterious artifact rumored to be in the secret underground lab known as "X17". All paths to the area rumored to contain the lab have been cut off and you and your team must somehow find the entrance to the lab. You just hope that the payoff is worth the risk...

-=Character Biography (example)=-

Name: Grunt

Sex: Male

Age: 39

Appearance: Dark hair, pretty buff, lots of scars around his body, with horrible memories behind them....

Background: A former HECU (Hazardous Environment Combat Unit), he is one of the few marines that survived the Black Mesa incident in the late 1990s. The government wanted to hide the truth about their secret research there, nuking the place and killing any survivors. After a few years the government went after him, they have discovered that he had survived the incident, the only way he could get away is go to the Zone.

Stalkers stared at him badly in his PCV suit with marine patches they knew that he wasn't from the Ukrainian army, they didn't open fire. It was issued to him back in the 1990s, before going into his "Classified" mission, it served him well over the years with his trusty battle damaged MP5 SD/M203. He was going around the Zone doing jobs for money to survive, he reached Yantar, met some Mercenaries working for the Ecologs and got recruited.

Weapons:

Primary: LR-300, ACOG scope.

Secondary: His trusty MP5 SD/M203, 4 M209 grenades.

Melee: His old military combat knife.

^ Well, we all know Reaper's a good character so you can't really go wrong with him - but you may want to go with a more temporary character in this scenario just in case anything... "bad" were to happen. In other words, just start from scratch so there's no predisposition towards the characters at all except for what occurs through the dialogue we create. Plus I'm curious to see what kinds of characters we can create from scratch, you know?

Name:Constantin Simon
A.K.A.(better said M.K.A.):Deadeye
Sex:Male
Age:n/a
Appearance:Long dark brown hair,hazel eyes,his right eye is actually half blue,his build is short but stout.
Background:Former :member of Romanian Spec Ops,Deadeye was promoted to general in record time and became resonating name in the Romanian army.In 2007,when first news came from inside The Zone,he fell in wanderlust with The Zone and renounced his very important position in the Romanian army for a place as a mere soldier in a detachment from Kiev whose mission was to enter the zone and report all activity there,scheduled to leave in may 2008.Deadeye disrespected orders of unknown kind within The Zone and was to be shot on spot.Instead he gunned down four members of his squad before making a run for his life with more than a few bullets in his back.
Doctor took pity on him and treated his wounds and when he got strong enough to go on his own path,he was given a trench coat and civilian dressings in order not to be shot on sight by other stalkers.
Some stalkers still treat him with resent for being an ex military,some with respect for having the guts to go up against the army,anyhow Deadeye is easily recognized,which is a double edged sword for him. He is considered one of the most deadly marksmen the Zone has seen.

PS: What do you think?

I don't think anyone is supposed to have a nuke lol. Remember this is only an infiltrate and retrieve mission.


So, Psynexus when does the mission begin?

PS, if anyone's wondering how a PCV suit looks like.

Alright - looking good! I think we have enough characters already so we should be able to start unless anyone else would like to join before I begin. Some slight modifications first though if we could:

@yagoo looks good - but you forgot to include your primary and secondary weapons

@QuaNTuMbenxh - I would probably double your age if you want to keep up with the other guys twice that much, I would say age 18 minimum.


---QUOTATION---

---END QUOTATION---



His suit can turn into a tank? REALLY?! Yeah... how about not. That one is bordering on breaking rule #1 so how about you just take that part out and we'll see what we can do.
