Ezekiel Posted March 18, 2006 Share Posted March 18, 2006 [B][COLOR=Red][SIZE=1]Warning: This RP will contain extreme violence, as the basic theme of it is to kill each other. If you're not keen on gory, bloody scenes, then don't join.[/SIZE][/COLOR][/B] [FONT=Courier New][CENTER]Government Internal Memo 1997, No. 00387461 (Top Secret) Dispatched by Central Authority Secretariat Special Task Force Defence Supervisor and Battle Experiment Advisor of the Special Defence Army To: Supervisor in Charge of No. 12 1997 Battle Experiment No. 68 Program (May 20, 18:15) We have confirmed evidence of an intrusion into the central government operations system. The intrusion was undetected on the date of its occurrence, March 12. We are currently investigating and additional evidence of re-entry. The suspect?s possible identity, purpose and any possible information leaks are also being investigated, but because the suspect?s computer skills were highly advanced, we anticipate a significant delay in producing the suspect?s profile. The Central Authority Secretariat Special Task Force Defence Supervisor and the Battle Experiment Division of the Special Defence Army were informed that data from Program No. 68 may have been corrupted, and as a result we immediately considered the postponement of Program No. 12 for 1997. However, because preparations for No. 12 are complete, and because there is no indication that the above data has been leaked into the civilian population, we have concluded that the program should proceed as scheduled. As the supervisor in charge of executing the experiment, you, supervisor of Program No. 12 are to proceed with extreme caution. This information is classed as top secret and is to be treated as such.[/CENTER][/FONT] [SIZE=1]The Program is an event that occurs every year in Japan and is classed as top secret until it has concluded. However, once the few days the program lasts for are over, the media swoop in and everyone across the country knows what has happened. Because of this, everyone knows exactly what it is from when they are mere children. It has even been covered in textbooks from the fourth grade onwards. Here is a quote taken from the [I]Republic of Greater Asian Compact Encyclopaedia[/I]: ?[B]Program[/B] [I]n.[/I] 1. A listing of the order of events and other information [?] 4. A battle simulation program conducted by our nation?s ground defence forces, instituted for security reasons. Officially known as the battle experiment No. 68 program. The first program was held in 1947, Fifty third-year junior high school classes are selected annually (prior to 1950, 47 classes were selected) to conduct the Program for research purposes. Classmates in each class are forced to fight until one survivor is left. Results from this experiment, including the elapsed time, are entered as data. The final survivor of each class (the winner) is provided with a lifetime pension and a signed card from The Great Dictator?? Battle Royale is a novel by Koushun Takami, which originally sparked controversy because of its violence, but soon became a runaway best seller. It?s also been turned into a manga series and movie, both by the same name. If you haven?t read the book/manga or seen the movie, it honestly doesn?t matter, because the basic plot is really easy to understand and this RP won?t contain any spoilers. You will all be playing as a student from Third Year Class A, Seto Junior High School. The class has 17 girls and 23 boys all with different strengths and weaknesses. Some are bullies, some are loners, but all of them are just normal 15 year olds. By this I of course mean I don?t want super humans here. Having experience in martial arts or being good at brawling is fine, but I don?t want [B]anyone[/B] trying to get away with making a character that killed five guys with his bare hands when he was 6, yeah? That would totally take the fun out of this game. [B]Before you sign up, there are a couple of things you need to know will be happening [/B] ([COLOR=Red]Please, please read this[/COLOR]): ?The students all believe they are going on a study trip and have packed their bags for a few days away. They are all on a coach and have no reason to believe anything odd is going on. ?You all start off wearing [URL=http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/be/Jun1.jpg]this uniform [/URL] but if your character chooses to take the chance of getting dressed into their own clothes during the game, that?s your choice. ?This is a survival game. I will be participating, but I?ll die pretty early on, as I?m the one who decides who lives and who dies. There is no voting system, but you have to prove to me that you are deserving of winning this game. Post quality, good decisions and enthusiasm give you brownie points. ?There aren?t going to be big duels spanning three posts in this. If you encounter an NPC, you can kill them without me having to intervene, but as soon as all the NPCs are dead (there will be quite a few, I?m guessing) then you?re going to start killing each other. Once you encounter another player, you should start the fight, let them continue it and then leave it at a point where either of you could die. I will then decide who will win the match and PM the one who dies. The victor will then end the fight. This makes things fair, you see. ?When the game starts; I will be PMing those accepted with their ?Day Bags?. This ?bag? contains a map of the island, a list of students (I?ll make a full list, including the NPCs names), simple food, 1 litre of water and a random weapon. As in the book, the game isn?t designed to be fair, so don?t expect me to be giving everyone sub-machine guns and katanas. More will be explained in the Underground/when the game starts, so I?ll get on with the sign up. [B]Name:[/B] (Japanese) [B]Gender:[/B] [B]Appearance:[/B] (Remember, everyone is wearing the same uniform when the game starts, so you don?t have to describe clothing.) [B]Personality:[/B] [B]School File:[/B] (This is where I want you to tell me how your character acts in school, what their motivations are, what they are good at and what relationships they have with other characters. This can obviously be edited as more people sign up and I have no problems if you don?t fill it in at all until much later.) I?m pretty sure that?s it; so if you have any questions, post them in the Underground thread. ^_^ Thanks for reading.[/SIZE] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
