Divergent BNG Part OneThis is a game based on the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth. Most of you may not really understand this stuff if you have not read the book, but please bear with me here.
I will post a copied paragraph to describe the book so you can get the basis of what it's like:
"In a dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year (The Choosing Ceremony), all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives."
Use this dice: http://www.bgfl.org/bgfl/custom/reso...s/dice/six.htm
You are a sixteen-year-old girl named (Insert Name) and you were born into the (Insert Faction). You were raised up in the virtue of your faction (Virtue; Candor = Honesty, Abnegation = Selflessness, Dauntless = Bravery, Amity = Peacefulness & Erudite = Intelligence) along with your siblings (Siblings) by your parents (Parents' Names).
Roll for Faction:
1 - Candor
2 - Amity
3 - Abnegation
4 - Dauntless
5 - Erudite
6 - You Choose
Roll For Siblings: (You can choose ages)
1 - One brother, two sisters
2 - Two brothers, one sister
3 - One brother
4 - One sister
5 - Two brothers
6 - Two sisters
According to your Faction, your's and your sibling's names come from these lists:

Today is the day that you receive your Aptitude Test. They don't tell you this, but it isn't like an ordinary test. You walk into the room to find it empty except for a dentist-like chair in the center along with a machine and a petite lady. She will administer the test. She hooks you up to the machine, hands you a vial of clear liquid to drink and you are put under a simulation which the lady will monitor. The simulation will watch how your brain acts in given situations to detect which Faction you belong in. The test ends and the lady presents you with your results: You belong in (Insert Faction). You go home and try to decide which Faction you will choose the next day at the Ceremony. The aptitude test, you know, was simply to help guide you but you aren't sure what to do. To make it even worse, you aren't allowed to discuss your results with your family members.
Take This Quiz to Determine Which Faction You Belong In: (If you don't want to take it, you can just roll like you did above)
You wake up the next morning with a clear mind and are thankful that you finally know which Faction you will choose. Later that day you arrive at the Choosing Ceremony and wait in line with the rest of the sixteen-year-olds. The man standing in the front of the large room with the microphone announces each teenager, one-by-one in alphabetical order. You start to daydream when you hear your name called. You walk to the center of the room where there are 5 large bowls representing each Faction. You are handed a knive with which you cut your hand and spill your blood into the bowl representing (Insert Faction That You Choose).
Roll for Faction That You Choose:
1/3 - Same Faction You Were Raised In
2/4/5/6 - Faction You Belong In, According To Your Aptitude Test
Directly after the Ceremony you are taken away with the rest of the new members of your new faction, though you know you aren't safe yet. You still have to make it through the Initiation before you are an official member. The bad part is, that if you fail Initiation, you become factionless (homeless). During Initiation you meet your best friend, (Insert Best Friend's Name). While you're somewhat reserved, he/she's loud and pushes you to do things you wouldn't normally do. You love having him/her around.
Roll for Best Friend's Name:
1/2 - http://www.behindthename.com/top/lists/ew/2000
3/4 - http://www.behindthename.com/top/lists/ir/2002
5/6 - http://www.behindthename.com/top/lists/us/1990/100
Luckily by the time Initiation is over, you are a proud member of the (Insert Faction).
Part Two, coming soon!
