Welcome to Beta-Lab C7V9 V.2.2!
We couldn't do it without you!
"If your best is all you've got, you'll do just fine here!"
- Founder Of Beta-Lab Benny Shultz
!------------------------------|Remember|------------------------------!The year is 2027. Technology is at it's peak, and you're very thankful for everything Beta-Lab has done for you. Beta-Lab is a research facility thousands of miles underground in the Arizona desert. The goal of Beta-Lab was to create technology for the betterment of US citizens. Flying cars, cybernetics, and genetic modification were some of the amazing accomplishments.
Working at Beta-Lab was considered as an honor, and highly esteemed. Families often pushed it on their kids, or the ads on TV did it for them. Being a worker there was like being a super hero.
Of course you cannot just sign up. The goverment accepts applications once every year, and they sort through for the best people. It is commonly assumed that only braniacs can get in, but no one really knows why Beta-Lab chooses who they choose.
You entered your application in on August 19th, and sure enough, you got a letter seven days after:
Thank you for you application, valued American!
We thank you for your application, and we're happy to tell you that you have been accepted into the Beta-Lab family!
We understand this must be an exciting, however due to new policy, we ask that you keep this a surprise to your imediate family/relatives/friends until you arrive at Beta-Lab. As soon as you check in, your family will be notified about your amazing achievement!
In this letter you will find a ticket to Arizona. You will be picked up from the Beta-Lab Check-In zone at [..........]. You will be picked up by a bus at 6:30 sharp. Do not be late, or else you will be unable to join the Beta-Lab team.
While you wait, please take time to memorize the official Beta-Lab anthem:
~Oh Beta-Lab, Oh Beta-Lab. Thanks for blessing me! With this proud duty, and the work I must complete. Oh Beta-Lab, Oh Beta-Lab. Thanks for saving me! I promise to make everyone proud at home, you'll see.~
I decided to make a new thread for this! Why stick around with the old, let's bring back the new! Some things have changed regarding combat and skill checks, do look at them and ask any questions that concern you.
Both the attacker and the attackee roll a D20, modifiers are applied based on situation, then I roll to see who scores higher.
Skill checks happen whenever there is a situation with a possibility of failure. I decide on a difficulty setting, and you have to roll under or land on the given number. The difficulty is raised by your certain skill points that are applicable. Easy: 20-12 Normal 11-8 Hard 7- 4 Impossible 3-1
Points of interest will still be a thing in certain areas. You do not have to follow by it, you can really do whatever you want. It's just there if you're feeling lazy and don't want to type out too much I guess.
Example: You enter the security office. Before you is a giant wall filled with all sorts of strange monitors and scanners. A light beeping is coming from one of those machines, and a light blue light is emitting from them. To your left is a locker with some sort of code lock, and to your left is a desk piled with papers and books. What now?
POI: Locker, Desk, Monitors, Beeping Noise, Monitors, Code Lock.
Crafting and Creativity will still be the same as the last time. I really recommend you get creative, as this round of Beta-Lab will be much, much harder than it was in the past. You're free to do most things, but when you start doing things that are a bit too OP, or a bit too wacky, I'll shut that down. I will most likely keep crafting and such free from dice rolls, and just thinka bout the plausibility of it and go from there. You can find items and things to help you make your crafting dreams possible.
By agreeing to the form, you're also agreeing to some of the Official Beta-Lab rules and regulations.1. Do not use derrogitory language during your time in Beta-Lab.
2. Be friendly to your staff and hosts.
3. Never speak badly of Beta-Lab or it's third party corporations.
4. Drinking Beta-Lab GO!™ around computers is banned, as spilling is prone to happen and the machines are expensive!
5. Talking about classified Beta-Lab tests, experiments, and treatments is strictly prohibited, and explusion from the facility will be guranteed.
6. You may not cover up any cameras on your mobile devices or your computers. The same goes for microphones.
7. During an emergency, a total of twenty-four hours has to pass before you can leave the facility via the escape lobby on the first floor.
8. Do not steal, horde, or hide supplies from your collegues.
9. We have a strict dress code. Depending on your department, you will be assigned specific clothing. If a robot or security guard sees you without your proper uniform, you will be taken away for questioning.
10. Any sexual activity during work here at Beta-Lab must be reported immediately. It is banned, since emotions tend to ruin our progress and lower our capability statistically. If you cannot comply, you will be castrated.

"State of the art tools for state of the art workers!"
- Co-Founder Of Beta-Lab Henry HalowaeHere at Beta-Lab, the safety and protection of our staff is top priority. Plexy glass, high-tech cameras and robots patrol the facility at every waking moment, and if by chance there is a medical emergency, our competent and highly trained medical team can fix any injury from a simple cut to nerological damage or fracturing. We take pride in the wonders that we have brought to the modern world, and it shows in our performance.
With new ways of collecting oil, we're able to refine oil and double the amount we get. And with new ways to power electronics, we only need a fraction of what we collect every year. Our solar, electronic, and steam engines hammer away day at night to keeping our underground lab and living space bright and happy. With new Holotec technology, we're able to create enviroments that feels, smell, and act just like home. Being homesick has never been better!
Our security team is armed with the latest technology capable of stunning targets, or melting them! Danger in Beta-Lab is at a minimum. Thanks to the government, we're graciously provided with some of the most skilled CIA veterens, and nothing can get passed them without a proper uniform and an ID card. We're also happy to announce the wonders of botany, and how far we've advanced Hydroponics. Botanists are able to grow plants underground, and there are quite a few parks that are available to the puplic. With fresh air from above, and below, having lungs has never been better!
Did we forget to mention our amazing Engineers who work day and night to keep the facility happy. You know what they say, a stable electrical coil system is a happy stable electrical coil system! Oh, and how could we forget about our incredible Research team who create new vigors and items for the other sectors. The most valued member of the Beta-Lab family! Though, we don't favor people here! So don't worry if you slave away at Robotics, the final section of Beta-Lab. They work on creating new robots to fit our every need, and give us a hand where others lack. With their constant work, we're able to create machines that can withstand incredible heats, land amazing falls, and fly high above the sky and into the stars!
Everyone here at Beta-Lab is valued, and we hope you feel the same!
Beta-Lab, where: "If the best is all you've got, you'll do just fine here!"
