Inspired by the "Rogue Galaxy" concept created by Iron's Grasp
A life is a wonderful thing, we all lead our own in our own ways, and expereince exactly what we chose to, with a few suprises thrown in. We go to school, we get a job, get married, that's the usual course of life. Simple, and fullfilling enough that we don't need to go chasing danger for the thrills.
But right now, that's not the life that you're leading, because normality is a pipe dream, if you've become part of the secret world that dominates the underground mazes of subways, sewers and long forgotten basements of Alabaster City. The secret world where almost nothing, including life, is certain, and everything, including life, has a countdown. This isn't just some game with small time thugs, or a band of hobos in an old ruin. This system runs deep, deep into the underworld of the city, deep into the black market, deep into the organized crime, deep into the hearts of those who see this as their only chance. Nobody who knows about this lives a normal life, and most likely, never will again. Once you know about the system, you're a part of it, whether you like it or not, and there is only one way to get your name off the records, and that's usually with you in very accidental, always fatal circumbstances.
This system, this network... It runs better than you can imagine, because it has but a few rules that govern it's entire being... You don't talk about the network. You have nothing that the network does not and will not know about. You're place in the system is not yours to decide. You do not argue with the network.... and if you're gonna die, die with dignity.
Those are just the rules for the whole system... You get deeper in, you uncover the network's nodes. The nodes are the main areas of the system, where everything takes place. Each node has is unique, and has it's own rules and it's own caretakers. Every node is different, but they are all distinct. One could be less harsh than the others, but that never gets you anywhere. To become someone in the system, you have to put someone down a place, show them who's boss. But be careful, because they could do the same to you... And if that happens to much, you're Deadweight... Which means there's a free bounty on your head, since you're of no use to the system.
But, behind all the words, all the lies, all the secrets, there is one thing that the system can never shake off of it's reputation.
It's a fight club. A very special fight club, for anyone, as long as they're prepared to die at some point, maybe without them even knowing... The nodes are arenas, and every arena has it's own fighting rules. Some allow your opponents to submitt, some make you fight to the death. Some make you fight bare-handed, some allow to use some melee weapons. Some are gauntlets, where you can use guns, and some... some let you unleash whatever is inside of you, your instincts, your power... and some, of course, are pure games of chance... Russian Roulette was never as terrifying for some as it is in this system...
And all the time, from the moment you join to the moment you die, you can never shake off the feeling that something's lurking behind every shadow, watching your every move... Learning... Even the system has it's own secrets. Will you be the one to uncover the past, and learn just how deep the Network runs? Or will you become Deadweight?
Behind all facades of organization, all masks of culture and in every battle there's always another agenda... Things are never what they seem, and this place is no exception... Even with the manipulation of the Network, at the end of the day, this place is just a Savage Underground...
Life will never be the same again... Are you strong enough, inside and out, to handle the discoveries and duels that lie within?
Chose your species. Chose your beliefs. Chose your path. Get ready for the battles ahead. Enter the Savage Underground, and fight... with Black Hearts and Bloody Roses.12/18/2010 #1
