Cue voice, masked by the fluctuating tones of a voice changer, interspersed by clicks as the signal is re-routed, and re-routed again and again. Static flickers at the edges like digital flame:
"Salutations! Time is short, so let me get to the point. I have placed a bio-bomb underneath one of the world's great cities. When it detonates, all life within a hundred mile radius will be utterly demolished. I have no demands. You cannot negotiate with me. I tell you this now so that you may make peace with your gods before you are wiped from existence.
Click. Click. Bzzzzz
Well, this is where I come in. Who am I? Well, that's a good question. I'm the one who received the cassette the message you just heard is on. That's right, cassette. Why me? I have some theories...I'll give them to you when the time is right. That time will be oh...I don't know. Maybe when there's not a bomb somewhere on Earth. There is one, you know. It's not a bluff. So far there's been no luck in tracking it down, but electrical signals along the Earth's magnetic field do confirm its presence. So let me lay out a plan of action:
If you are hearing THIS message, it means you found my 'message in a bottle'. Thrown out onto the seas of the temporal field, the only thing I know is WHEN you will get this. I do not know who you are, where you are, or whether you will help or hurt my cause. I am speaking to you from a decade ago. At the current time, I am dead. The tape I have played for you had very specific instructions for my eyes only, and applies to you, and only you. As I said, I am dead. I do not care for bio fields. I would like to be a thorn in the side of my murderer. So that's where YOU come in.
Stop the bomb.
You have six days.
I hope I don't see you soon.
This RPG will take place over the course of six days (DUH). There will be a separate thread, and a separate chain of events, for each day.
Special information will be needed for each day. Some will go into the opening thread for each day. This will include any objects, locations, and key characters. Other information I will be sending to you personally. Because of this, you MUST PM me if you want to participate in any given day.
You can be in as many, or as few, days as you'd like. Information you gather or unlock will go into the briefing for the next day.
This RPG will be as much about your detective skills as it will be about fighting ninjas. Each day will seem to be unlinked to begin. As you move forward, connections will emerge.
While there are fixed points in the RP, everything that happens depends on you. The only consistent thing is that there are six days, and a bomb.
At the end of each day, I will put up a synopsis of what happened in this OOC. I will introduce recommended events, and give the final chance for signups for the next day.
If you have questions, please let me know! Day One will begin MONDAY.
