You have just found yourself in Condemned Unit 55. Prisoners know it only as Unit 55.
You were transferred from your previous place of incarceration where you were held on death row.
Here at Unit 55, you have a chance to redeem yourself and become fully rehabilitated.
Upon successful rehabilitation you will be released back into the community as a law abiding citizen.
Of course some people just refuse to be rehabilitated.
When you arrive here, you have no recollection of how you got here, and no idea where you are. You wake up in your cell, and you will find a letter on the desk addressed to you.
This letter will call this prison Unit 55. It will briefly explain that no other prison wants to accept you, and so you have been transferred here. It will not give much information.
The Warden here at Unit 55 will occasionally test you. Event's will be clearly posted each week. Prisoners must take part in these events.
Finally, not everything is as it seems here. The Warden is never seen by anyone, and rumors circulate that he may be a robot of some kind. Even when prisoners get an audience with him, they don't actually see him, they only get to speak to him through an intercom device. Prisoners may request and audience with the Warden, and sometimes it is the Warden who will demand an audience.
The Warden has supernatural abilities, and is able to teleport prisoners to various places should they refuse to go willingly when requested to do so.
Rooms also occasionally move around - a post will be made whenever this happens.
Should a player decide to drop a character, their character will either be released following rehabilitation, or will remain condemned and be executed following rehabilitation failure. The player decides which occurs.
