I'm not ready to run my own RP yet, so I just wanted to pitch an idea. If anybody has enough interest to run it, please go ahead and take it.

Set in modern times, this is about a cruise ship that gets caught in a nasty storm and is thrown off course. The ship is badly damaged and crippled by the storm, causing it to drift to an uncharted island. The island is mostly densely forested, and an old, abandoned chemical plant is the only building. There are no humans on the island (or are there?). However, the islands wildlife has been mutated by chemicals dumped from the plant. For example, there may be...giant ants, two-headed bears, man-eating plants, etc. The survivors of the ship will have to try and survive while exploring the island to find a way to escape.

The PC's will be the survivors. A PC could be...regular passengers, crew members, or anything else you can think of that would fit in. Keep in mind this is a cruise ship, so there would likely only be small firearms available, such as a pistol carried by a security guard. Or one possibility would be to have one or two armed criminals on board who had planned on robbing everybody. Any other weapons the PC's had would likely be whatever you can find from the environment.

This is only what I had in mind. So if anybody wants to try and start this, feel free to make any changes to what I've posted, as it now belongs to you and not me.

Sounds like fun, and its got a rather solid plot, but I'm not really committed enough to this site to get this rp up and running smoothly. But, if anyone else wants to start it up, I would be more than happy to rp in it.
