    Recruiting Stay Down: The Lives and Times of Yorkmizer's Finest (OOC)

    "If there was ever a life before this one, I'd say that they must have done some god awful shit to lead us here..." -Unknown

    Summary

    It's been generations since anyone saw fit to ask what happened to the world. As far as anyone's concerned, this was always the way things were. Everything humanity has ever known is now just a single country's worth of land, surrounded by an endless abyss. A perfectly circular desert pillar with a diameter of 240,000 miles. Society has risen, fallen, risen again, and is now a perfect storm of anarchy and tyranny, with your life either in the hands of a brutal warlord or threatened by one. The only place where this isn't the case is The City. An isolated Metropolis spanning 80,000 miles across the center of the world, protected by massive walls, minefields, armed guards, and more. Inside the walls, it's said that the City has created the technology to infinitely duplicate resources, making them essentially infinite.

    However, the enigmatic "Mayor" has shut off the City, only providing the rest of the world with unmanned drones carrying supplies every few days. The drones only drop these supplies four places. Three of them are controlled by the Warlords, with rations passed around to the people in exchange for what amounts to slavery. Some of the settlements not under a Warlords control are forced to raid transports to survive, praying that the might of the Warlords isn't brought to bare against them for doing so. Those towns that don't raid for their living rely on the fourth drop location. The Yorkmizer's Guild of Mercenaries.

    The Yorkmizer's Guild has been around for as long as anyone can remember. Seemingly named after the family that runs it, The Guild provides food, water, and protection to those that are willing to pay their price. Unlike the Warlords, however, that price is not slavery, but simply compliance. While the Guild provides resources, they horde much of what drops, keeping all weapons and ammunition for themselves, as well as much of the food and water. Towns under the Guild's protection are often left with very little to fight off the Warlords, save a squad of warriors armed with a Semi Truck and the skill of a thousand men. Yorkmizer's Mercenaries are notoriously skilled in combat, with one unarmed merc fabled to be capable of killing dozens. The Guild takes members young, anywhere from 5-10, and works them to the bone, putting them through training and trials that destroy all but the toughest among them.

    You are one of these warriors. A specialized and dangerously skilled combatant. You've completed all the training the Guild requires and are now ready for your first deployment with your squad of fresh faces. Your first charge is said to be a town that has been suffering attacks from a local warlord and has come to Yorkmizer's for protection. You've got your weapon of choice, a Trailer full of ammo, and a destination. It'll be a challenge to establish yourselves in a town like this, but confidence is a must with Yorkmizer. After all, you've trained most of your life, for this. What could go wrong?

    Woot consider this my reserve.

    Name: Grizzwald Night

    Age: 27

    Gender: Male

    Appearance: Appearance(pic and description)
    Spoiler: Night 


    Reason for Joining: Money and safety plain and simple.

    Personality: Grizzwald Night is what could be called an adrenaline junkie. He lives to cheat death, he is fearless, bold, and wily. But there are glints of a deeply moral soul beneath all the bravado, many would call him unhinged, others perfectly normal. Griz would say he's somewhere in the middle. Like everyone else in the Yorkmizer's Guild you don't make it to the end of your training being perfectly sane. Just the right kind of crazy to willingly go out into almost certain death on a daily basis.

    Specialty: Driver, someone needs to drive the Semi, and it might as well be the death defying bird man.

    Weapon of Choice: M-16 with a dual day/night scope and a tire iron reporposed into a war axe.

    I have high school schedule, exams are this week so I get out early this week, otherwise I'll probably be here at 3:40 PM at earliest and around 6:00 PM at latest, on wednesdays I have therapy, some days I have family counseling.

    I don't want to be a hassle so I understand if this causes complications, however do know I'll try my best to be as active as I can.

    Are there any restrictions to character creation we need to know?

    Consider this consideration of my return to roleplaying.

    Really need to know if I can break the first rule though. It's kind of a quirk for my character. Especially in a scenario like this. You almost have to be a dick.

    1.) "Don't be a dick" in an OOC sense. IC, it's fun. OOC, it's annoying and hurts feelings.

    2.) I will say that there can only be one specialist of each type, but beyond that I'll let you know if I don't like something

    Hmm would a steampunk style char work in this? He has a prosthetic arm like Yoshimitsu from the Tekken games

    It would depend on how it looked.
