With admin permission, I'm wanting to start a regular, possibly weekly event called Running Man where-in volunteer contestants have the opportunity to earn three levels of cash prizes in a three round contest over the course of three days.
The first round involves 1-5 contestants earning 25,000ch for remaining free from capture for a period of 24 hours while being followed by a live NLM eyepod that the entire dome can view on NLM Channel 69. During this round, a 5,000-10,000ch bounty has been put on each contestant that can be collected by anyone that live captures the contestant and returns him or her to NLM Tower.
The second round involves the remaining contestants eliminating each other and earning 10,000-15,000ch for each elimination they perform, with the last contestant standing earning 50,000ch for staying alive until the end of the round while being followed by an NLM eyepod. Contestants will randomly draw a number tied to a specific weapon and receive that weapon for the duration of the round. Since firearms are illegal in WC, I'm thinking mostly blades, melee weapons, and random junk items with the possibility of not having a weapon at all but something innocuous like armor or a medpak.
The final round involves the last remaining contestant running from dedicated professional hunters who will earn 25,000-50,000ch for eliminating the final contestant. If the contestant survives this round while eliminating all of the hunters, they receive 100,000ch.
At each level of the game, those who move onto the next round will have the opportunity to back out of the next round and take the winnings they've already received.
This sort of ties in Friday Night Firefights with Battle Royale and Running Man, but televises it and makes it a corporate funded concept that can be self perpetuating. Additionally, it's been suggested that maybe we figure a way to actually bet on people using the betting system we have available.
