The World Corp. (Waitlisting.)
« on: May 31, 2014, 10:52:48 pm »

A long, long way into the future, American greed has conquered most of the world. They control most of the world, minus Russia and most of the rest of Eurasia, but they still have China and Japan. The government has become privatized, and no change in power has been heard of in years, and the only thing it does now is help crime, but it can only help pay for murder investigations, the only thing the police does, and if the government doesn't pay enough, the family has to pay for the case to be solved. Outside solving cases, the police have also become a mercenary group of sort, using their access to weapons to kill for money that they can use to buy more weapons or murder cases. All industry is privatized and free of laws, since they aren't any anymore. They pollute the world, and pump out all they can, damning the consequences. Schools have also, big surprised, been privatized, and they're funded by companies, and they're pretty much propaganda centers to brainwash kids into buying their products, however, highschool diplomas also grant discounts on all of the companies items. Someones entire life is chosen for them while they're in utero, a machine randomly chooses what schools they'll go to, what interests they'll have, and even what particular strengths they'll have. Its a dangerous world we live in, but welcome to the company.

You don't start with anything but the clothes on your back, and you can go as far as you want with descriptions and backstories, which is what the  "Other" tab is for. I whole heartily encourage very described characters and deep backstories.

Name: Arven Micro
Age(18+): 19
Gender: Male
High School: MicroSchool
Trait: Gamer
Perk: Sugar Filled
Other: Arven has short brown hair, and is somewhat fat. He was born to a family who held slightly higher than usual positions for Microsoft, and as a result they changed their last name to 'Micro' in an effort to show how much they love their corporation. He has always been on his Xbox 1080 elite, with X-Kinect v7, and he almost always has something sugary next to him. Arven dreams of becoming one of the greatest hackers in all of E-Space.

I think we have enough to start now. You all can do your first actions now, as a note you all start off in a cheap shack. (Also electricity is free in this world, so you have power.)

See what jobs are available in Microsoft.

You go to the nearest MicroCenter and ask about a job. There is a job available, a stock slave, they need one since the new XBox One80 is coming out soon.

Search for a dead drop containing gear using my information about the different mercenary companies.

Dead drops? Oh, how some of the older mercs would reminisce fondly in how they used to do those, but sadly to them people didn't care about arms dealers anymore, so they just bought weapons wherever they pleased.

Accept the job, rise quickly in the ranks as a result of my superb last name.

Edit: GM: Add inventory spoilers, or at least list how much money each character has.

You accept the job and you're stuck in back... With two others with the surname Microsoft.
0$

...Try to get a gun somehow.

You have two good options for getting guns, either buy them from Wichester Store, or illegally, or kill someone who already has one. The latter of the two is probably the easiest.
0$

(Highlight your actions, and the next line is your inventory.)

If I can afford it, buy a gun. Otherwise, look for someone I can kill for a gun.
