After years of research, many close calls, near victories, and devastating defeats, the underground laboratory in Parrington has finally discovered the cure for the plague wreaking havoc across the country. Unfortunately, despite the new cure's 100% success rate on those infected with the plague, even those close to death, the cure is considered illegal due to its ingredients. Despite the scientists pleading with President Ruellan to make an exception for the sake of the country's well-being, he refuses to allow the cure to be mass-produced for distribution across the country. Worse yet, the scientists working in the underground lab have all been dismissed, removed from the project and sent home. New scientists - ones with less experience, less skill, and more loyalty to the cruel government - have been assigned to the lab, and the future of the country is still at stake. Luckily for the country, the old scientists aren't ready to give up hope so quickly. They know that their cure works, and it's just a matter of mass producing it and providing it to the people. Unfortunately, it's now illegal to do so, and being caught working on the cure is grounds for imprisonment and, if deemed guilty by trial, even death. They're going to need some help, some cash, and a lot of luck. This RPG will, as I'm sure you've guessed, be about mass-producing a cure for the plague that's overtaken the country. It is not based in the real world, but rather, an alternate world - everything is modern, however, so it's basically like being in the real world. The country in question, Bollorey, is ruled by a cruel and harsh totalitarian government headed by President Nicholas Ruellan, and it's currently being absolutely decimated by a mysterious plague that spreads like wildfire. Players in this RPG will be able to make up to three characters, and they can choose for their characters to be scientists, citizens, or police officers. The scientists will be the ones attempting to mass produce the cure, but mass production of an illegal substance is difficult and costly! Gathering the ingredients, processing them, turning them into the cure, and distributing the cure will not be an easy task, but the scientists know that the fate of their country is in their hands. Citizens will have a lot of freedom to choose what they want to do - they can help the scientists by gathering/donating cash, collecting ingredients and delivering them to the scientists, and delivering the cure to the people. Alternatively, they can choose to help the police by spying on the scientists, reporting suspicious/illegal activities to the police, or interfering with the work of the scientists. Some may even choose not to take sides, instead going about their day-to-day business and just trying not to anger the government. The police, meanwhile, work for the government and are responsible for arresting all those who are partaking in illegal activities, or suspected of doing so. Their job will be to arrest the scientists and any who are helping them, but some officers may be sympathetic to the cause and even help out, risking their own jobs and lives to do so. Gathering money for the cause will be done through posting - each post made by a scientist or a citizen actively helping the scientists (including any who are partaking in espionage and simply pretending to help the scientists) will generate a certain amount of money, adding to the group pot. Once there is enough money to produce a batch of the cure and the ingredients are all assembled in one place, the scientists may begin to work on that batch. Once it's made, the process will repeat, with some people now having the task of delivering the batch of cure to the people. There will be a pre-determined number of areas that will each need a batch of the cure, meaning that players will need to make that many batches in order to successfully cure all the sick people in the country. There will be an end goal in this RPG, that being to successfully cure the country of the plague raging through it, but if people enjoy the game, it can be extended and new goals can be made - creating a vaccination to prevent the plague from reappearing, for example, or even taking down the corrupt government. If this idea seems interesting to anybody, let me know! I personally find it pretty exciting, and I hope that there's enough interest to create it. If you know anyone else who may be interested, direct them here so they can let me know as well - if there doesn't seem to be much interest on this thread, I won't bother with making it, as much as I'd love to. If you have any questions, feel free to ask either here or in a PM and I'll get back to you as soon as I can! Thank you for taking the time to look at this!
