~"Playing as the black team Tyler Corith and-." I drown at the announcers voice. I couldn't beleive I was actually doing this. I herd all the storiess of how people change, once they start they don't quit and dont come out the same. I needed the money, just like evryone else. I had to do this. I had to play.~
In the year 2332 life is very different. Cities have become over populated, poluted, and dangerous .Life is not what it used to be. Many children are left with out parents, for they are off somewhere working for the goverment, and also get little education (most go to highscchool and stop.) The goveremnt has pit stricter laws in effect especially in majr cities like NYC. For example, chldren are not allowed to be seen out of there homes past 11pm.
People need money to surrvive. Most are filthy poor unless you are one of the few that are flthy rich. Some billionare out there has developed a new way to get money, he created a new underground secret sport. If you are a teenager or adult you can get a lot of money by participating or bidding. It is called Zastball. It has become a NYC phenomenon. Only select view no where it is played and only some no how to bid on it. It has become quite popular for getting money, but it is dangerous.
Setting-New York City, 2332.
Main characters- competors, bidders and sponsers.
Topic of Intrest-Zastball
Zastball is like basketball on steroids. It is dangerous. There is two people on a team, normally male and female. They were no body armor/pads, maybe knee pads and a mouth guard, but that is it. The ball is a the size of a basketball but a bit heaier and a little less bouncy(you can still dribble it though.) Played on a basketball court, with two hoops. Its in a secret location, for the most part. Broadcasted on a different station each night startin at 11pm.
How its played: There is two teams named by a color, two team members on each side. The object of the game is to get as many baskets in your opents hoop as possible withing 40 minutes. You can do this by any means necessary. However if a person has the ball and is shooting you cannot physicall touch them, just block them. Any other time you can do whatever to get the ball.
Making money- each night competors(teens for 13-17) are payed 100 dollars to play. If a sponser wants to sponser you they will ussually give you a bit more money. Also if you win, you get an extra $50.
Adults- Adults are bidders and sponsers. Sometimes a adult will sponser a team to get there company's(ussually) logo displayed on television. They also normally bid.However, most adults just bid on which team will win.
Why its so dangerous: 1. cchildren are not supposed to be out at that time. 2. there isnt to many rules in the game so people can get hurt.
Name: Normal names please!
Looks: Again normal no nijas and stuff.
