I am currently putting the finishing touches on the interior of the brand spanking new Sector Correctional Facility in Central Red.
Many of you might recall the ominous and deadly descriptions around the prison that showcases auto-cannons and all sorts of painful things to dissuade you from entering, without actually letting you attempt to scale the walls.
Well, the descriptions are still there, and now you can attempt to scale the walls. This is the only warning you're going to get though.... Prisons tend to be secure.
Along with the opening and securing of the prison facility, we're going to be changing gameplay for the WJF, WCS, TERRA and adding a brand new group/faction to the game in the form of the SCF or Sector Correctional Facility employees, these people essentially work for the City much like WCS, but have their own specific role.
Jobs for this faction will be posted in good time, and TERRA/WCS/WJF PCs will be updated on how the changes will affect them ICly.
Now, you might ask... Cerb, why a prison? Judges only fine and kill.
Well, that's because I want to lock people in a cell and laugh at them, but then you might also ask, but Cerb, that sounds like some boring shit. To which I will reply, yes, this is why I want to do a trial run on fully volunteer prison RP as an alternative to clone death.
Some career criminals die a lot... They die so much that they might get tired of being career criminals, but what if you could pump the brakes a little and volunteer to have your next clone death result in a short multi-day stint of RP behind bars, on the receiving end of RP from prison guard PCs and NPCs?
There's visiting booths and visitor's are allowed access to Prisoners when it's convenient for the guards, etc.
So that is where we're going with this, at least on a trial and volunteer basis now to see how people like it.
As usual, we don't build impenetrable fortresses, everything has security gaps and flaws, there's room for prison economy for fixers to develop, as well as break in and break outs by some ballsy players.
The place is big, and it's taken be quite a while to finish, so in the next week or so, I hope you enjoy what you find.
