KINGTYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYPE AND JESSSSSSSSSSSSSSWRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITE PRODUUUUUUCTIONS!!!! THE BEST TEAM SINCE PB n J!!!! Market Minds: Paper or Plastic? Are you ready to experience an RPG story like never before? You’ve faced evil corporations, brutal wars, fallen angels, corrupt politicians, homicidal mages, super villains, and even actual concepts brought to life BUT now you face the greatest challenge of your role-playing lives…….THE AVERAGE AMERICAN CONSUMER! That’s right. Welcome to The Shop'N'Drop! One of the biggest retail stores in America known for their abundance of various supplies, from housewares to food to toys and games but also their sub-par customer service and from past employees their apparently poor working conditions. Which brings us to our current situation. The year is 2000 and the Shop'N'Drop just outside of Great Barrington Massachusetts is going through major changes. Most of its current employees quit due to massively unsafe working environment and some can be found protesting outside the store, but as far as the health department gathered Shop'N'Drop is a safe and fine place to work. And please note that bribery was in no way associated with the investigation or the department’s decision. In fact there are only two people working on a consistent basis currently. Jack 'The Big Man' King the superstore’s totally fair, humble and not at all corrupt manager. The second is Gary Garrison, a former military integrator on various black sites (But that's classified…..which is why he tells everyone). Whatever military background he came from doesn't play much into his work ethic. Garrison can normally be found asleep in the various places or doing tactical raids against the food department. That’s where YOU come in. Yes YOU! The player aka Shop'N'Drop's new employee. Be you a teen who needs a job, a slacker who never had a job or a loser who’s still working retail in his forties, then please send in your application! Shop'N'Drop This superstore has anything and everything you want, all separated for your convenience, we will go over each department from largest to smallest. Housewares- The housewares department is by far the largest section of the store. Its sections aisles are covered with pots, pans, plates, blenders, tools and almost every sort of home appliance you can name and plenty you’ve seen on infomercials. Half of the middle section of the place is also a part of housewares but operates as the furniture section, with wonderful mattresses, desks, couches, chairs and even work out equipment. Takes up the front of the store plus aisles 1-6 Food- This is of course the second biggest part of the store with its own subsections, Vegetables and fruits, sodas and waters, cold foods, canned food and of course the bakery and butchers. These take aisles 7-10. Both the housewares and food sections obviously require more then one employee to handle. The sections below are the smaller parts of the store but still an amazing asset to the beast that is Shop'N'Drop. Pets- The pet department is the store's answer to pet palace which shares the town center with them. The pet section is found in the far back left end of the store. Small as it might be two people are normally needed to manage the animals (which are just gerbils, birds and fish) They also have most common pet foods and toys for the animals they carry, but also dogs and cats. Toys and games- This is the aisle in the back of the store that’s smack dab in the middle of the pet department and electronics. Three shelves. One shelf full of baby dolls, action figures and random play time toys (such as the jump ropes, ball bin, and LEGOS) second shelf in the aisle is bikes and of course the famed wall of board games and cards are last. Electronics- The department in the back of the right side of the store, its about the same size as the pet section but if you like video games or need the newest console of year then this is the place for you. CD's, DVD's and games are plenty, though whoever works in this part is best to have electronic knowledge or not......up to you when the customer gets testy. Barrington Town Center! Shop'N'Drop's rivals are right next door in this cul-de-sac like shopping center are various fellow stores that specialize in similar or different business practices. Counting Shop'N'Drop there are seven stores in total. Rotating left from SND in this order are: Pet Palace- A store that not only sells gerbils, birds, and fish but also cats, dogs, mice, ferrets and plenty of other furry friends. Phillips FatFox's Pizza- A Chuck E Cheese rip off that is filled with creepy animatronics but much are the depressed parents and snot nosed brats running about the place. Known for their disgusting pizza, spoiled brats, fist fights with parents and creepy vans being driven by even creepier dudes from time to time. Glossy Beauty- A make up shop filled with gossiping women and men who love learning about the affairs just as much as they love applying makeup and doing hair. Ma and Pa's- Ma and Pa's is the oldest and smallest store in the town center, best store if you be needing a pack of gum and non big business customer service. Of course Ma and Pa hate each other with a passion like no other and are often arguing with one another in front of their customers. They also have a hatred of young people and stores like Shop'N'Drop and The Mighty Narwhal. Blockbuster: Yeah......just Blockbuster The Mighty Narwhal- The only store in the center that can rival SND in size and consumers…..in fact Narwhal is normally ahead. Not only do they have better prices then and many of the same things SND but a built-in Movie Theater and sizable clothing section.
