That's a 100% death rate.

100% survival right here. Lottie Don't die.

A few additional details about The Last Stop so you can consider your character.

What kind of character should I have? All of your characters need to be people with very significant psychiatric baggage/trauma. That doesn't necessarily mean that you've all killed someone, let someone die, committed some kind of horrible crime of which you are very ashamed, but it could mean that.

Does this mean that you're all going to spend the whole game moping and emo? No. You can if you want, but you certainly don't have to. For storytelling purposes, I don't want you to give all the other players your entire back story too early - one of the primary goals of this writing exercise will be for you to put together and gradual reveal your character's back story in a way that will be interesting to the other players/readers.

What are the "game rules" as far as ghosts/monsters/the supernatural etc? I'll reveal more on that as the story goes on, but the players will definitely be collaborating on that issue.

Say something about the setting. The first thing any of you can remember is standing at a train station on the platform together. There's no train anywhere in sight, and none of you have any luggage, just the clothes on your backs. The train station is boarded up, and even the tracks have weeds growing in them.

The sky over the town is a morose gray, and a cold wind blows through the deserted streets. Far away, you can hear the sound of a foghorn. Welcome to The Last Stop.

Location: Let's storm this battlefield one last time~!
Steel Measure
Player characters are pilots from all over the world uniting against an alien threat and are stationed in a United Nations base with giant robots and other such vehicles.

Players/Characters: Players will be expected to work together to fight the aliens. They don't have to like each other, they just can't kill each other as that would probably be a bad thing if a person with a powerful mech decides to take their ball and go home.

Each player gets a mech of their own design, if they can't think of one an original super mech or real robot will be given to them.

PVP: Probably VR training or something like that

Lethality: Pretty low, despite being a super robot RPG. Unless the characters decided to hold off an invasion fleet on their own while waiting for reinforcements or letting the others retreat.

Players: 5-8? Maybe? I'm kinda mercurial about this sorta stuff--first time running a game and all.
