This here's the start-up page for the Mutant Chronicles forum game I'll be running. For those of you not familiar with the Mutant Chronicles setting, imagine New York City of the 80's, multiply the size by three, put it on the moon, give everyone a gun, and add 4 gargantuan Megacorporations, and zombies.
The characters play Freelancers in this setting, a sort of combination between private eyes, guns-for-hire, and general hired muscle for anyone with a big enough bankroll.
For more info, I'd suggest going here
and checking out the players section.
There's a total of 4 characters to choose from, first come first served, with my buddy Arkbrik having a reserved slot.
The characters are:
Arkbrik, the social wizard. Deadeye with a handgun, and sneaky as hell as well. Maybe not the best in combat, but an absolute whiz at social skills. If the team captures a victim, he's going to be the one to interrogate. Comes with ballistic nylon pants, and a lined trenchcoat for armor, and a single P60 Punisher handgun for a weapon. Has 20,000,000 credits to spend on equipment, and has contacts within the police force and Bauhaus, Mishima, and Imperial.
The second character, ShapeShifter, spent time as an officer before going into private security. He has a lot of combat-related skill picks and isn't too bad with a vehicle. He comes with ballistic nylon pants, a ballistic nylon jacket, and a bullet-proof composite facemask for protection. For weapons, he comes with a P60 Punisher handgun and a M516S shotgun, and has 50,000 credits to spend on equipment.
The third character, Ross_Varn, went right into military academy at age 16 and spent 8 years after that as an officer. He's got the highest Personality rating of the group, and is very good with a rifle. He's also a dab hand at Avoiding incoming fire and Perceiving threats and hidden objects. He also has experience with melee weapons, as opposed to the rest of the group. For protection, he comes with ballistic nylon pants, a ballistic nylon trench coat, and bullet-proof composite shoulder pads. For weapons, he comes with a P1000 service pistol and a CAW2000 close assault weapon. He has 20,000,000 credits to spend on equipment.
The final character, kiemaster, was
an officer, but then he got picked up for drug-running and went to prison for a year. He's a good con-man, and he is a good shot with a rifle. Unfortunately, he has no experience with automatic weapons. He's a good medic, though, and will probably save the lives of some of our group members in the days to come. He comes with ballistic nylon pants, a ballistic nylon jacket, and, for shits and giggles, a studded cloth sombrero. He also comes with a MP-105 machine pistol, and a sawed-off HG-14 shotgun. He has 1,000 credits to spend on equipment.
After signing up, send me a PM detailing any equipment you want to buy with your funds. The sky's the limit - you can find pretty much anything in Luna City if you know where to look.
Once all spots have been taken and equipment bought, we'll get this show on the road.
