Your Earliest Memory...

You remember waking up in a chair in a brightly-lit room. This is your earliest memory. You know your name and nothing else. As far as you’re concerned, you have no past. The men behind the glass window tells you that you have committed a heinous crime against the state. However, in its infinite love and wisdom and mercy, the Ministry has granted you another chance at life—another chance to transform yourself into a model citizen worthy of the Ministry’s love. But such an opportunity comes with a caveat. After all, despite its infinite love and wisdom and mercy, the Ministry does not allow crimes against it to go unpunished. You touch the nape of your neck and feel a small plastic chip. The men behind the glass tells you that is your doom counter.

That’s DOOM as in Dimorphic Organic Oxyacid Metric counter. Aptly name because it counts down the days and minutes and seconds to your death. Once your clock runs out, the chip will administer a deadly agent into your bloodstream, rapidly altering acidity levels and causing you to bleed out of every orifice in a matter of seconds. A quick death but an extremely excruciating one. Relinquish any thoughts of removing the chip as its mechanisms has been surgically infused to your upper spine and brain stem. Removal of the DOOM counter will only result in death. And tampering with the counter in any way will automatically activate its kill mechanism. About an inch below your left or right wrist is another chip. Pressing it activates a hologram projection of the counter’s clock. You see that you have roughly three days left.

But fear not, for the Ministry is infinite in its love and wisdom and mercy. As long as you strive to be a model citizen, your life will not end so abruptly. Time can always be earned. The men behind the glass gives you a registration number along with a set of clothes, identification card, and 500 credits, and sends you on a government bus along with others in your same position to a public housing unit where you will stay until you can afford your own residency. You are told to get Ministry-approved work in the city where, at the end of each work day, you will be allotted more time on your DOOM counter and live to see another day.

Work hard citizen, and welcome to New Babel.



"In New Babel, you too are loved..."

You can customize your enhancements to your liking, ranging from combat enhancements to general use, whatever. Up to you.

@RedPotato Yes, we’re still open, and welcome aboard if you’re planning on applying :D

I just realized I forgot to include a personality section in the character sheet. It’s now there. Check the sheet w/ explanations for details.

Question: So, since there's a chip in both your arms, is it possible to replace either arms with a cybernetic replacement? I'd imagine not, especially not through back-alley means, and only a maybe for Hyperion Cybernetics. I'll lesve it up to you, of course.

@Vega7 You actually have only one chip that can be in either your left or right arm. So you can fully modify the arm without the chip and you can also partially modify the arm with the chip assuming the mechanic is skilled enough to not mess with the arm chip and set off the killing mechanism (the arm chip interfaces with the primary neck chip). Hyperion mechanics are trained and licensed to do this safely.

I've finished my character! Please refer to it if you don't understand what to write in a certain field, get an idea for formatting, or whatever.

@Blu Hey, I’m intrigued enough to begin writing up a character, I’d just like to confirm if there are still open slots?

I hope you're still open. I'd love to join this! My friend DinoNuts is working on a CS to work as my character's 'bodyguard'. Excuse the lack of formatting btw, I could never get the hang of it ^^" TLDR, she's That One Cyberpunk Girl On All The Billboards In Every Cyberpunk Setting Ever - a disillusioned celebrity trapped in a gilded cage.

(Edit: I should probably warn that there are explicit themes in her backstory. Nothing overt or graphic save for mentions and implications of sex and pornography.)



Let me know if anything needs fixed, especially in the balancing of her power. I wanted to make an investigative/helper build instead of anything combat orientated, so whilst she's really good at getting names and snooping around, she's not so good in hardship.

Thanks so much for accepting her, I'm glad I managed to get it right on the first try. Just to double check, is this going to be an 18+ roleplay? My character's pretty dark (compared to what I usually make) and I want to know just how explicit I'm allowed to be. Is drug use, violence and the mention of erotic things (without going into detail on those things) acceptable or should I tone it down into mere implications?

@Stitches It won't be 18+, more like 17/18 I would say. So what can be pictured is drug use and violence but sexual themes can only be referenced and implied, not go into details. I think 18+ you can fully write about sexual stuff, so basically avoid that.
