  1. PLOT CHALLENGE

    Plot challenges are designed to help you think quick and be inspired. We often play this game in the cbox, shouting out random words or phrases and see what ideas first pop in to people's heads.

    To Participate: THINK FAST. Don't waste any time. The first idea(s) that comes to mind, write it down and post it!

    NOTE: If you decide to borrow someone's concept for a roleplay, make sure you give credit.

    Challenge Phrase:
    A New Gunbelt
     
  2. Michael Delane always said he'd get himself a new gun belt. Somehow he never got around to it. In fact, the battered old leather deal he's wearing right now has become a bit of a trademark. It's what led you to become a member of his crew, in fact - the trademark. Well, now you're in a fix. You've crashed on an alien planet, your beacon is dead, as is Delane. You and the four other survivors must somehow locate the alien ruins you intended to explore, and retrieve the Ark of Mesadah....or twenty-three days from now you will all die from atmospheric poisoning. Good luck, crewmen.
     
  3. I never wanted to have to do this, I and my ragtag team of otherwise unremarkable friends were never expecting to be some of the people that got through this. Fuckin' zombies. So we're the only ones in our neighborhoods who survived, and with our little corner of civilization going to hell, we figured we'd raid a gun shop for supplies. I got a gun belt, and a few firearms as well as a hatchet- a friend had picked a few knives for hunting and skinning and preparing food- not like it would work on zombies. Too close range. Would it surprise you to learn that guy was the first to die in our group? Either way, we're heading towards what we heard was a safe zone... now all we have to do is avoid being killed on the way there.
