You are a regular human who has been asked to test a new exceptionally difficult game system that has been created by a company called Erelect. It is a fully immersive VR experience, even including a memory wipe while playing the game. The goal of the game is to survive for as long as possible.
Choose a trait. Then choose an item, and another will be randomly given to you.
You have 100 health. You need to try and survive for as long as possible. You can never get back health. Never. Note that "health" is sort of a catch all stat that reflects physical, emotional, and mental health, so even just seeing something especially terrifying might reduce it.
WARNING: This game may have some "Rock falls, everybody dies" moments, so don't get too infuriated. It is meant to be difficult near to the point of unfun-ness.
Sturdy: Start with 110 health. Resourceful: Start with an extra random item. Navigator: Take your pick of 2 starting locations Lucky: All positive random events have a +10% chance of happening.
Flashlight: Battery life of a few hours. Club: A sturdy wooden club. Satchel: A small pouch, made of cloth. Without this, you have to carry everything in your hands. Flares: A pack of 3 flares. This might help, but remember, enemies can see them too. Waterproof Matches: For all your pyrotechnic needs. Tarp: Very small 3m by 3m tarp. Rope: A 5m long piece of rope. Knife: A cooking knife, like you might find in any ordinary kitchen. Spare clothes: A change of clothes. Hat: A really cool looking cowboy hat.
