    Grid || Greater.Restructure.In.Destiny

    "Formed for the people, by the people. A new beginning is but an application away."


    Preface
    To whom it may concern,

    Do you feel as if you've reached a dead end in life? As if your actions seem meaningless in the grand scheme of purpose. Such that you cannot be your self; but rather, a broken image defined by the expectations of society. Has the debt of your education left you in the gutters? Or perhaps were you unable to rise into the top percentile deemed necessary by your industry? Are you still in school, or not, feeling lost with no sense for the direction you are destined to walk? Or have you found success at the cost of your happiness and fulfillment in life?


    Let us ask you this.
    If you were given the opportunity to fix that which has passed; an opportunity to change the faults that leave you helpless and stranded. Would you remain a cog of society? An individual who has forsaken his or her sense of individuality and flair. Or would you become a deviant who threatens the balance of that which society finds comfortable.


    Ask yourself. Are you satisfied with who you have become--by choice or not?
    If the answer is no, then let us, here, at GRID Industries become the ones to redefine your path.

    Formed for the people, by the people. Our goal is to help you achieve a place in society fit for yourself.

    A new beginning is but an application away.

    Sincerly,
    Miyuki Shizuka, CEO of GRID Industries.

    Plot
    [​IMG]


    Company Formed at the Hands of National Sensation

    May the 13th was a monumental day for the city of Valin, California where GRID Industries opened its doors for the very first time. Led under the guidance of CEO, Dr. Miyuki Shizuka, the fresh corporation has all the public interest as it promises to bring positive change, not only to the field of medical technology, but also to society as a whole. Dr. Shizuka, age 24, is a recent graduate from Harvard University who has rapidly become a global figure for her unparalleled research in the fields of bio-medical and robotic engineering.

    Proud owner of the Nano-Cybernetic Particle, Dr. Shizuka first received her esteemed acknowledgement when research met the talents of nationally recognized surgeon, Dr. David Magus. Together, science and medicine reached historic heights with the restoration of a previously irreparable case of paralysis. Kent Aki, a 29 year old mechanical engineer, was the unfortunate victim of a workplace accident that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Given the severity of his injuries, he was told, by doctors, that the damage was permanent, and his life's career was effectively over. Nonetheless, Kent continued to believe in the potential of science, and it is without a doubt that his faith was rewarded. After a fourteen hour surgery, lasting from dawn to dusk, Kenta was soon released from Harvard's Medical Center with perfect results and next to no medical downtime.

    Kent's lower body was embedded with thousands of mechanical devices known as Nano-Cybernetic Implants. These microscopic particles exist at sizes which dwarf even the cells of the human body, yet it was because of their minuscule size that the results were, in fact, so effective. Upon implantation, the nano-robots proceeded to intelligently embed themselves into the body's nervous system--their location chosen by chemical markers which revealed points of damage along broken nerves. Acting as replacements for the damaged neurons, the nano-robots effectively became a part of Kent's body--an augmentation and one of the world's first successful implementations of such.

    At this point in time, it has not been disclosed what GRID has in store for the public, yet speculations cannot help but wonder if the corporation plans to engineer an augmentative standard for society. Without a doubt, the future holds great potential for Dr. Shizuka and her company, yet until further information is made public by GRID, we, the public, can but patiently wait for the exciting developments that are most certain to come.

    What to Expect

    As a whole, GRID is a multi-genre roleplay that is generalized by sci-fi fantasy. Players of this game will experience a blend of mystery and puzzle elements as the characters attempt to unravel the secrets hidden by GRID Industries. All characters will start as ordinary humans who have been contacted by GRID for potential employment. It is expected that characters of this roleplay have some form of negative connotation associated with their person. Examples could include, failing at school/work, long term unemployment, rejection by society, in debt, etc. Be creative! A blend of unique personality is much more interesting than some mary/gary sues.

    There are no complicated requirements to join this role-play; however, it is expected that you are willing to spend time with notable amounts of detail. It is expected that you, as a writer, are independent and are capable of developing your character in both a believable and compelling manner. Above all, it is assumed that grammar, post length, and roleplay involvement are as expected by a game of adept-advanced nature.

    Under no circumstance is this role-play intended to be advertised as "easy." Puzzle elements and challenging combat litter the story with the potential of death hanging around ever corner. That being said, in no way is the plot of this role-play written to be unfair. Every player action will determine a subsequent reaction, and it is left in the hands of the players to develop a highly, flexible story however they wish.

    Grid is a long term role-play intended to span several arcs across many months. While it is not required, it is highly recommended that players join with the intention of staying for the duration of the roleplay. Doing so will assist in the development of consistent, enjoyable plot for everyone to enjoy.

  2. The CEO sounds japanese, but where are we? Japan, America, somewhere else? I'm aware that these places treat you differently depending on heritage and I'm considering a latino character.

    Also what kind of pictures do you want for the appearance? Real people pictures, drawings or what? :)
     
  3. The CEO is Japanese but the story will take place in fictional city Valin, California. Your characters may be from anywhere however. Just make sure they can speak at least somewhat English haha.

    As for pictures, I prefer anime, but I can deal with other forms if anime doesnt find the look you want.

  4. Why are all pictures of muscly woman, of them in bikini? ;A; I put the picture to get a feel of how she looks, but let's pretend it's an actual portrait picture, more professional and with appropriate clothes T_____T Also, I put her education as with only highschool finished. The American schooling system has never been clear for me, and I think majors are a college thing only so I left those fields blank. If they have to be completed somehow, tell me n.n

    In two or more paragraphs, please truthfully answer the following the prompt.

    It is no error that this application has come before you. With this fact in mind, please explain why you believe GRID Industries is interested in a person such as yourself. Furthermore, elaborate on the talents you believe you can bring to the company if you were hired following this application.

    --I have diverse talents, all of them acquired by hard work and tenacity. By diverse life circumstances I couldn't go to highschool until I was sixteen, but I managed to graduate only a year later than usual. I put my best effort into everything I do and am a fast learner. Despite them being labours usually left only to men, I've worked as a construction worker and a mechanic, with zero knowledge about it when my employer first took me in, and learning from my peers. After that I started working for a modelling agency, and during the time our work relationship lasted, I did my best to put forward my best face for the company.

    Also, thanks to my diverse background (I was born and raised for a few years in Argentina), if GRID Industries so desires, I can provide feedback to them from the viewpoint of a minority, helping to develop the inclusiveness I've always admired from GRID Industries.

    Thank you for considering me and for your time. I look forward to hearing from you on the near future.

    Yours sincerely,

    Cindy Gonzalez.

    My only concern is the writing portion. It is a bit on the smaller side, and I would like to see your character fleshed out a bit more in terms of what was asked.
    All in all though, everything else is good to go.
     
  6. I have the backstory of the character fleshed out in my mind, but I was unsure of how to go about it because this character sheet is practically a job application, and I don't tell the story of my life when applying for a job. Also, the notice sent out was just along the lines of 'want to change your life? Apply here' but they're not saying at all what kind of tasks will be performed or what talents they're looking for, so I was unsure of what to write that would fit looking for a job within that company or for that project. Any help about how to go about it?
     
  7. If you have the backstory planned, then I can live with that.
    I'll assume a post will give you a bit more to work with than a fairly open ended application prompt.

  8. I'll have the main thread coming up after work, so the interview process can begin.
    In the mean time, more people join join join!
     
  9. -violently tosses myself into this thread-

    HELLO!
     
  10. Hello!
    Planning on a sheet?
    Either way though, if you have any questions let me know.
     
  11. So a small change in plans, but individual interviews aren't gonna happen.
    Got something better planned out for us.
    In the mean time, we wait for new members!
     
    • Thank Thank x 1
  12. The concept has intrigued me, so I will be playing around with characters. Not entirely sure if I'm gonna join quite yet, though.
     
  13. Cool! Happy to have your interest.
    Look forward to potentially seeing what you come up with.
     
  14. Just as another heads up.
    We will begin the role-play at 4 members.
    Sign-ups will stay open for new members until we reach 8, however.
     
  15. Golly it's been a while huh? Believe it or not I saw the banner and was like "that looks familiar..."
    I'm certainly interested, I'm kind of getting like a zero escape vibe with the mention of puzzles (mostly because I just plowed through Zero Time Dilemma). But, my work schedule is an absolute nightmare for this week and then I move into my dorm next week... I'll see what I can do... Maybe I'll try to work on character stuff during my breaks instead of pokemon go for once ;U
     
  16. Heya! It has indeed been a long time, and I'd love to have ya in the rp.
    I'm not all about that every day posting anymore, so the schedule is much more manageable.
    2-3 days should be pretty possible, even if your busierish.
    All in all though, if your interested, love to see a character!
     
  17. WIP ^^
    (This character might be familiar, I hope that's alright cx)

    Art had been scribed in my very soul from the very moment I was born, but hadn't been invested in until sometime in middle school, when I realised you could make a proffession out of the craft. I threw myself headlong into the art world; getting a job in customer service to afford art supplies, signing up for online classes, endless hours of YouTube Tutorials. A self-taught artist who managed to make it into USC. I didn't have a chance to question my path, or anything along those lines; college was hectic, and almost right after I was accepted into 343 Industries to work on advertisement for their newest Halo Game. To experience the industry behind such a famous and illustrious title; that is something I am forever grateful for.

    That being said, GRID is a new company, one that still has much to release, one that still needs to push for recognition after the initial wave of popularity has simmered down. I worked with 343I for four years; I drew and designed everything from the beginning concept art for a new wave of spartans, to the animation for the small loading circle (such a small task, yet it took three people!), to the final wave of promotion posters and advertisements to push a new game. I have experience with startups and with promotions; I would love to be able to lend my hand in helping GRID push new innovations, products, and further the company name.

    Honestly, I'm just a normal student. I was told to put in this application by my mother so if you could ignore it that would be great. I haven't even finished high school yet. I was a bit surprised seeing a checkbox for high school all the way to Phd... You accept such low education people if they give you some sob story? Anyways, I'm rambling so I'll end it here. I doubt you guys will read this anyways, but if you did thanks for that I guess.
