This is the recruitment thread for a PbP game of Gamma World that I will be running. I'm looking for five people that are interested in being the mutated recovery crew of the ARRC, or Apocalypse Readiness and Recovery Center.
The ARRC is a secret underground facility, a vault
, you might say, where people, plants, animals, technology, and other things were stored in anticipation of some kind of horrendous apocalyptic event. Sadly, the Apocalypse Recognition Sensory Equipment wasn't particularly well designed (thanks Obama
), so no one was woken up when the apocalypse actually did happen. It's now 107 ABM (After the Big Mistake), and the ARRC's Environmental Stabilization Core has malfunctioned. You're the crew that was just recreated from a mixture of genetic goo and raw material who's job it is to get the parts necessary to fix it.
Unfortunately those parts are in (what was) California and you're in (what was) Kentucky. Time for a road trip!
I'm looking for five people who can post regularly and all that typical PbP jazz. If you would like to apply, here's what you need to do:
and roll a character. Make sure you:
--Step 1a: Include Famine in Far-Go and Legion of Gold (the two boxes to the right of the sheet).
--Step 1b: Change your character's name if you want to.
--Step 1c: Select your armor and weapons in Section 4.
--Step 1d: Decide if you want to keep your Explorer's Kit or replace it with a random item (also in Section 4).
Open a new tab and go here
, then fill out the form. There's no myth-weavers or orokos for Gamma World, so I'll need this info to be able to recreate your character later when I'm making character sheets for the group. Use your forum name for the player name field so that I know who you are. I know that not all the fields on the character sheet are on the form. I only included the ones I need. The rest are calculated automatically.
Make a post in this thread with your character's name, origins, and description. You should describe your physical appearance, your personality, and answer the following questions in some way:
-Did you agree to be a part of the ARRC? If yes, why? If not, why do you hate freedom?
-How long did you spend in orientation before getting used to your bizarre new body?
-How great is the ARRC? Isn't it just the best hope for humanity's survival?
-What are you most interested in seeing once you get out of the ARRC?
I'm going to leave submissions open for at least the rest of this week, probably making my selections on Monday. That timeline might change depending on how much interest there is or if I'm too busy and need more time or something.
