This is a disaster RPG. You are one of the guests that has been invited to the party mentioned above, and are currently mingling with other guests on the 42nd floor. Soon though, the whole event is about to be turned on its head with disaster striking and fires breaking out. The objective of this RPG is to survive and escape; however not everything is what it seems… Now as a character you can take on many types of roles, like one of the employees of NaturOil, perhaps a plus one for another guest, or something that fits well with the tower or the company. For example perhaps you are a reporter that has been able to sneak into the party to try and get some dirt on the corporation’s dodgy dealings. Levels The tower is 50 storeys high, so I want to point out some of the most important Levels, where a lot of the story will take place. If the story progresses to a floor not mentioned I can either come up with a description, or allow the first person onto that floor to describe it. 42nd Floor Location of the party, highly extravagant level with lush crimson decorations and furniture. 43rd Floor balcony overlooking the 42nd Floor, with bar areas and luxury rooms for guests to stay in. 49th Floor The CEO’s office, a large open space with a large oak desk in the middle. There is a staircase that leads to the 48th Floor, which is the only entrance to the floor. 44th-47th floor Normal offices for NaturOil Corp. Character Sheet Please post this in the Discussion Thread after you get it approved by me. Name: Gender: Age: Appearance: Short Bio: Personality: Profession: Misc. Info: RPG RULES 1. Do NOT control other characters, including causing direct injury to other players. It is each players option to decide the degree of injury his own character receives. As an example you can grapple and try to break your opponents arm, however, your opponent decides how injured his character becomes. You succeed in the game by how well you write and how creative you are, not by how much you injure your opponent. 2. GM is law and can break and modify his own rules without notice. 3. No god moding. Strive for balance among all other players. 4. You cannot kill other players 5. Players can make Non-Player Characters if necessary 6. No out of character content (OOC).
