Time for a new RP: The Vault jobs.
« on: January 22, 2011, 02:40:00 pm »
i'm brinnging RP back, this time with a twist. the premise is simple, you must crack a vault imagined by me, you each choose a limited set of skills, realistic for the setting of each job, and then you must then research, plan and execute the job. you start with limited information about the vault, and must find a way into the vault and then execute it without getting caught. each person who takes part in the job gets a cut, unless they are caught, in which case their cut will be shared among the people remaining. cut is negotiated between the players. a running total of your profits is kept after each game, and sometimes you may need to spend some of your money to get into the vault. a small group of people can betray the group and split the profits among themselves if they wish.
all players begin with $1,000
any jobs done in places other than the US will be dealt with in their currency, then converted into USD
after the first job there will be multiple availiable jobs, however the first is just a trial run to see how it works and tweak out any issues.
i will keep a track of players in this thread, and create a thread over in the RP forum for each job.
of corse, you must stay in the character you created for each job, the aim of the game may be to earn as much money as possible, but it's also RP.
first job:
Location: Vegas, Nevada; lucky stars casino
Date: 22nd jan 2011
Expected Payout: $1,000,000

well the idea is to create a rp where people have to think and be creative, but the short nature of each job should mean that they don't get that complex
asin perhaps a few days for recon, a day or two for planning and discution among the team, then an hour or so when the whole team is on to actually perform the job, longer if the team isn't all on at once

cool, i think with maybe one or two more people, there should be enough (not including brek as he said he wanted to see how complicated things get)

cool, well it's up to you

anyway, i been thinking of diferent ways to run this, and the best way i could think of is pseudo realtime, everyome posts what they intend to do each day, at the end of the day i will post outcome, then once everyone is satisfied with the research and has a plan of how to go in, we can arrange a time when everyone can be on and do the job realtime too, unless there is no easy time and the simply do it like a normal role play and just post when people are on
