Musing and articles from Peter Amthor. Usually of a role playing game influence but I do drift into other directions occasionally. You can also find me on twitter at @TrulyRural or on Google + where I simply go by Peter Amthor as well. Comments and constructive criticism welcome.
Slurps is a popular frosty drink
available throughout Downtown via their bright green kiosks. This
frozen treat comes in 6 popular flavors: Blue, Green, Orange, Yellow,
Red and Purple; along with two special flavors that change out from
month to month including such wonders as Vermillion, Turquoise,
Aquamarine and more. Slurps frosties have been a 'flavorite' among
residents young and old and a staple of the World of Progress... in
Downtown. Slurps are only a 3 uni a cup, 5 uni if you choose to walk
away with a plastic collectors cup.
The franchise offers early sponsorship
opportunities to operatives who are fresh to the field and hungry for
exposure... and the credits necessary to get the fame they desire.
While they don't offer much they are aware that in the early
beginnings of an operatives career every little bit helps them on
Basic Sponsorship package.
Operative is required to wear a plastic
curved wrap on their upper arm. Held in place with elastic straps,
colored bright green with the Slurps logo.
The Operative receives 1 credit per
month. They receive an additional 4 credits for each time they
appear on television with the logo visible. There is a maximum of 20
credits payed out per month.
The operative also receives a special
Slurps card that can be used at any Slurps Kiosk for one free Slurp
drink a week.
Advanced Sponsorship package.
Achieved once they have collected 40
credits in payout.
The logo arm wrap is upgraded to a
higher more durable grade of plastic and is held in place with Velcro
straps or Friction Tape.
Operative receives the same payout but
the maximum per month is raised to 40.
Their Slurps card is upgraded to three
free Slurps per week.
Levels beyond this are all privately
negotiated. While most operatives don't stay with Slurps for very
long once they start achieving some renown there are exceptions.
Wraith Raider Contract Killer 'ChillThrill' has been with them for
years and she is a common feature on many of their advertisements.
Not to mention almost always seen with a Slurp in hand as she loves
the ice cold drink. At some events she has been seen to pull out her
'Slurp Squad Card' which allows her to get free Slurps for her entire
squad.... multiple times a day.
