Character-run Businesses


Character-run businesses are those that the guests to Death City have established themselves. Of course, the aspiring entrepreneurs would first require capital to do so, which they can earn by having jobs, joining missions, or earning rewards from Shibusen.

All character-run businesses are located in several buildings that have been reserved just for the guests. These are the buildings A - E that you can see on the map above. Each unit is pretty decently sized, at 8x10 meters. Some owners may rent more than one unit if needed, as long as they have the funds to do so. Rent is at 500 death dollars a month for each unit.

Some businesses have also been created in locations outside of these buildings. Again, as long as these are explained ICly and have gained proper mod approval, that is a-okay.

To apply for a business, just fill out the application below:

Business Name: The Name of your Business
Building Letter and Unit Number: As stated. Please make sure that the unit you want hasn't been claimed yet, and make sure that you know the location of your business.
Nature of Business: What your business is about, its goals and objectives, and what you do.
Owner's Inbox: All business owners are required for have a character inbox. Click here for a sample.

Number of Employees Needed: How many people you want in your business. These are people you will have to wage to, so it's important to think about this carefully!
Employee Job Descriptions: What you want your employees to do.
Notes: Any particulars about the kind of applicants you want to see in your business? Any other comments you want to add?

It's important to remember that this application will represent your business to all those interested. The slots in the units will only link to your comment.

If a character is dropped, the business is automatically removed from the registry unless requested and all workers in that business will become unemployed. Businesses need owners, after all. A change in owner is acceptable provided that a new business description is submitted in this page.

The mods will not be keeping track of character-run businesses and jobs outside of this page.

They're also in charge of recording all transactions so Eve can add it all up at the end of the month. In the case where there are problems with the gachapon machines, they will need to check to see what's going on with those.

Merchants: People who want to sell their things in Kero Cube. There are 305 40cmx36cmx40cm boxes available for rent lined up along all three walls. The panel between boxes that are beside one another horizontally can be removed to make one 80cm wide shelf that is still 36cm tall and 40cm deep. Each box has a glass door with a lock. The store will hold one copy of all the keys and the merchant will also hold a second copy of the key to their box(es). (Reference image)

It costs 10 Death Dollars to rent one box (20 Death Dollars for two spaces). Kero Cube will keep a record of the transactions and at the end of the month will total up what you've earned and pay you the sales after taking a 10% commission.

- Keroro is the owner, but it's going to be paid for by Eve who will be his investor and partner.
- Eve will be doing the book-keeping so they don't need a book-keeper

Number of Employees Needed: 7+ but there's no actual cap. Interested characters just have to drop either of the heads a message in their inboxes.
Employee Job Descriptions:
Agents - agents on call. Best for law enforcers, informants and detective types, although all-around errand people and shonen heroes are welcome to share their, ah, expertise. Basically: if you think you've got a special talent that'll help people, this is the job for you.
Runner [0/1] - Messenger and delivery pups. Expect to do a lot of menial work. Or running around. Or menial work WHILE running around.

Most of the cut for whatever job you accomplished goes to you. If you don't take a job, you don't get money.
+ You get your money if the Agency gets jobs, and pay is always a negotiation (usually depending on what you did).
+ Interested informants, detectives and enforcer types are always welcome to invest money with the Agency! \o/ You even get free office space.

Bouncers/security [1/2] - The usual. They’re the bodyguards of the shop, be it repairs, lending other staff members a helping hand or dealing with unruly customers. You don’t need to be build like a tank as long as you can keep a calm head and kick ass!
Runners [0/3] - They do whatever needs to be done, be it preparing snacks, waiting, helping with the cleaning up after work or whatever other small work behind the scenes that needs to be done and that doesn’t have set times or gets as much recognition as it deserves.

Updated post for Black Mesa

Business Name: Black Mesa
Building Letter and Unit Number: D-9
Nature of Business: Technician
Owner's Inbox: Near's inbox || Black Mesa Inbox

Number of Employees Needed: 6
Employee Job Descriptions: Clerk/secretary, Computer technician, Broadcasting and wireless Technician, Business Equipment: Computer Hardware Service Technician, Security System Technician and Basic Mechanics Technician. Read more about each job's description here

- A technician may have more than one area of expertise, therefore they don't need to solely focus/work on job area they applied for.
- This is not your regular "go to the office everyday and do work hours" job, so please make sure you read about it here.
- Black Mesa belonged to Matt, and then to Duo Maxwell, who then passed it on to Near. It remains exactly the same as when Matt created it, except for the addition of a new job position: clerk/secretary, to keep all paperwork and everything else in check.
