You've seen flyers about a new game called Lockdown, asking for beta-testers from around the globe. After getting a phone call asking for your assistance as a beta-tester within the game, you eventually give in and find the inventor's house, ready to beta-test. Little do you know, you will soon find yourself inside the game - not just simply playing with a controller.
Inside this game, Lockdown, you have been given the promise of immortality within the cyberworld. Your only chance of escape is to defeat the game, before the inventor of the game can defeat you and trap you inside a world of pixels and monsters. You must unite with the other players to find a way to succeed Lockdown.
Bosses, demons, and other monsters are abundant. Riddles and puzzles may trip you up frequently. Each player is given a number that is tattooed across their left eyelid, and a symbol that is embedded into the same eye's pupil. These numbers are key to know, as they can help you figure out riddles to doors. The symbols do the same, as they also represent a character's personality. Use hints within the game wisely. Patterns have been set up within Lockdown, and if you can recognize them, chances are you'll have better luck within the game.
Every player starts out at Level 0, with three Lives. If you lose all your Lives, your Level decreases by -1. Heart Containers can be found within Lockdown, as well as given, to add another life to a person. Specific monsters that are defeated drop certain things. More monsters are added to the game as time moves along. Their stats and items they drop will be posted whenever a new one appears.
Good luck to all players; you'll need that luck later on.
Now welcome to the game. The game of life, called Lockdown.

History: Fraud is the inventor's only son. When Lockdown was created, Fraud was the first beta-tester. He was sucked into the game, but lost most of his real-world memory, and could never escape. He now works as a guide in the game to keep things interesting for new players, but also has the secret ambition of one day escaping the game himself. With these new players, however, he's content with throwing twists into their game.
Personality: Fraud is playful and mischievous. Riddles, twists, turns, and puzzles are up his alley.

* I will be using this character in-game only for GMing purpose, for example; if you're lost in the RPG, or to show who has gained a new Life within the game/leveled-up/etc.
I also changed the image links because all of the ones that I had when I originally sent the PM to LPS were either relocated or appeared as 404 Not Found.
