Welcome to Post-Apocalyptia!

Welcome to Fort Victoria, what remains of the Australian Army base in Brisbane. Run by the (ex-)military, it's a stronghold surrounded by jungle. The guards are fairly relaxed, however, and the town appears pretty well off for a post-apocalyptic settlement. Clean water, running power, no (visible) poverty, what's not to love?

Some people may be familiar with this world from that... other game, but FYI, you are all currently in an alternate universe's future. Gratz to those that guessed. 50 or so years ago, some bright spark created a supercomputer to help safeguard humanity. It promptly went batshit insane, and together with some other craziness, managed to start a global thermonuclear war. This war lead to several things, including the annihilation of pretty much everything civilised in the northern hemisphere, a rapidly expanding rainforest filled with mutated creatures coating Australia, the uprising of several smaller countries into global superpowers, et cetera.



OOC: Originally, this was a game about a plane crash. I got bored of that and turned it into this.  :D

No playercap, because I'm totally awesome, but we character sheet now:

Spoiler: Character Sheet (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: Stats: (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: Profession: (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: Inventory (click to show/hide)

Couple of other things:

One: You get shot in the head, you're probably going to die, ie Chunky Salsa. You can die in short order if you mess up, and you stay dead. Well, probably.

Two: You can 'respawn' as a new character, as an outsider (under the right conditions).

Three: I call dibs on being the pilot, and dibs is law.

Fourth:

Prologue: Completed
The plane came down in a jungle. Seemingly fairly capable, the survivors fought off big ass animals, built shelter, gained food, raided a military bunker filled with crazy robots, and managed to negotiate a ride home with an unknown group back to 'Fort Victoria'.

I'll let him stay if the RNG lets him:

If he keeps his armor in a bag, and he loses the weapons and foodstuffs(unless they are toys), he's in.

One: you can't have negative skills, and if you do, you don't get extra points from it.
Two: Being a lawyer needs good charisma and intelligence, as otherwise people won't listen to your shit
Three: I don't think they'd let you on the plane if you send people insane when they look at you.

Please don't shitpost, it lowers the quality of discourse
Hard science is like a sword, and soft science is like fear. You can use both to equally powerful results, but even if your opponent disbelieve your stabs, they will still die.

And that's six. New people can just wander into the game.

We have:

Lolfail
kj1225
NAV
IcyTea
InsanityIncarnate
Objective

Time to roll the big ol' spinner. The number determines if the plane lands safely.

[3]

Take off is normal, and you're flying high over the ocean. A few hours later, most people are asleep (its night time, k?).

Then shit hits the fan. The plane's fuel tank has leaked, forcing an emergency landing. Everything is going smoothly, then you hit trees instead of water. Everything goes black.

~

You all wake up in a jungle. You're generally in the same area, but you luckily only have slight bruising. You can see the tail of the plane in the canopy off in the distance.
