This is the Sign Up and Discussion part of the Seas of San Tosa Chapter I thread.

Seas of San Tosa: Freedom
Chapter I: A Pirate's Life

This RP is about the adventures of three crews of sailors (two pirate crews and the San Tosa Navy). The RP takes place in the San Tosa Archipelago south of the East Continent of Alnaria. In this world, there are many kinds of creatures, people, spirits, monsters, and treasure. Pirates have been around for four hundred years; the Navy has been around nearly as long, and mostly for the purpose of destroying pirates...

Alnaria is a strange world where many types of creatures exist. Acseli (Humans) rule the world, or at least most of it, but there are various clans, families, guilds, etc. of other creatures, including Vrida (Vampires), Lyota (Werewolves), Sferina (Cursed Spirits), Dima (Angels), Anhel (Demons), Ekona (Nature Spirits), and Ridae (Intelligent Wild Animals, like talking birds, etc.)

The supernatural is common in many uncolonized parts of the world, consisting of the nonHuman races I posted above. Magic does exist, but only certain people are capable of producing magic. Many people, however, use Unopo Weapons, or Enchanted Weapons. Anyone with the ability to smith swords, axes, etc. is capable of smithing an Unopo Weapon, becuase they use magic metals (Mythril and Adamantium). Mythril produces outward effects, while Adamantium produces inward. What I mean, Mythril can be used to sling a Fire Ball, while Adamantium can be used to produce a Fire Shield. Some people have tried making Amutrilium (Mythral + Adamantium) Unopo, bet they rarely succeed. And lastly, all Anhel and Dima can use magic, but they are not playable. Ghosts, Cursed Spirits, etc. use Necro-unopita (Dead Spells), which is essentially Necromancy, although the spirits are too weak to control their undead most of the time.

About Pets: Exactly one year ago (from the starting date of the RP), there was an experiment to make humans that could turn into animals. From unborn babies to fully developed adults, everyone was prey to the scientists on the island of Aelis Moyr (Soul Gone). Most of the people used in the experiments died, but fifteen survived, permanently stuck in animal form. They can still talk, and think, and act like humans, but they live like wild animals. Bane, formerly known as Olivia Sail, was one such survivor, and although she was trapped in the form of a Wolf, her husband (and my character), Captain Owen Sail, is trying to find a cure for his wife. They are always together, and still deeply in love...

San Tosa is a small archipelago in the Southern Maens (a part of the ocean south of Edruhl, the Eastern continent). San Tosa's main islands are the colonized islands of Sihla and Tosa Medri, and a few of the surrounding islands that are much smaller. Each important island has one or more large ports and several small villages.

Yo, basically transfering from the intrest thread :]

User Name: Zombie Pop
Character Name: Sendren Siljai and Homtae Tonteme (the monkey)
Gender: Male and Male
Age: Sendren 19, Homtae 64
Pet: Homtae a'course
Weapons: Short Sword-Sendren /Claws and Wit-Homtae
Physical Apperance: [Sendren] Sendren is an albino. His skin is creamy white, the only markings being a thin, darker scar on his right shoulder that streches from his shoulder blade and wraps around to brush his collar bone, and a tatoo of a barn owl in flight in blue ink on his left hip. His hair is whispy silver white and tied in a puff at the nape of his neck with a bit of twine. His eyes are not the devilish red associated with albinos, but are instead a crystaline grey, like smoke captured in ice. He is thin and gangly--by no means a heavy lifter, but what he lacks in muscle he makes up for in dexterity. His face houses fragile but not feminine features, a wide mouth with thin lips, a graceful nose and a long, rectangular jaw, his eyebrows are also silver white and sometimes go unnoticed. Hisl imbs are long and agile, he has scholarly, piano playing fingers.
[Homtae] Homtae is a white faced monkey (go put 'white faced monkey' into google image search, they are awesome XD) a mixture of soft black and white fur. His face still retains a certain human qualit--not so much in shape or actual physical appearance, but more in expression. His eyes have also retained a hazel-gold color not usually found in monkeys. He is very agile and large for a monkey of his type, standing nearly three feet on his hind legs. He is most often seen curled about Sendren's shoulders.

Personality: [Sendren] Sendren is optomistic almost to a fault. Because of his skin and (lack of) color he has been discriminated and hated against his whole life, and he has found the only way to combat the prejudice is smile and plug through it. It is very hard for him to trust people, and has never really confided in anyone but Homtae. He is not adversed to hard work and delights in anything intricated that he can do with his hands. He is an expert knot-tier and untier and is very good at fixing things. Sendren has nearly perfected the art of dissapearing into the background, for him, it is much easier to not be noticed, and while this saves him ridicule and hate, it also makes him a very good thief. Sendren cares for Homtae very deeply and is dedicated to finding a cure for his friend. He also tends to stroke Homtae's tail when he is nervous or upset. (Homtae is his security blanket ^_^) Sendren's only moments of anything but quirky cheerfulnes are the moments when he shows disgrace and disgust with himself. He believes his condition is his own fault, brought on by a wicked heart and massive sin.
[Homtae] Homtae is one smart monkey. Seeing as he was a wise man and expert sailor before the experimentation, Homtae is now wise and helpful as Sendren's companion. Though given to boughts of thoughful silence and occasional gloomy pouting, Homtae is usually good-natured, if a little cynical. He has seen much of the world, its good and bad, and tries to impart this wisdom to Sendren. He is exceedingly protective of the boy, as Sendren reminds Homtae of his own son, lost at sea many years ago. He enjoys the open sea great deal, and finds nothing more exhilarating than scrambling into the rigging of a well cared-for ship and hanging from the crow's nest upside down by his tail. His good-natured grumpyness balaneces well with Sendren's seemingly exhaustless optimism.

History: [Sendren] Sendren was born to a young husband-less woman of Rabindasca Town. When he was born, Sendren's eyes were the blood red of albino legend. Believing him to be an evil spirit, the people of the fishing village wrenched him from his mother's arms and flung him into the ocean in a pitch-covered wooden box. He would have died in the sea if had not been for the peculiar fishing habits of a hermit woman who lived on the northern coast of that smae island. Hoping the pitch-box contained rum, the hermit woman, called Nanoni ( a name meaning "Story Fingers") instead found a bright white, very angry, baby Sendren. It was she who gave him his name, which means "silent smile" and rasied him with her in the woods that bordered the northern coast. She was not afraid of his appreance nor his sudden entrance, and she broiught him to know exactly what he was and why he had been thrown away. Sendren loved the old woman dearly and as a young boy called her "Mama Noni." For most of his childhood, he and the old woman were inseprable. Nanoni taught Sendren of the different peoples of the world, and of the old gods of water and air, ice and summer, forgotten by the new generations. It was from Nanoni that Sendren gained his love and aptitude for story-telling. She also taught him to sew and to write, and under Nanoni's love and protection, Sendren's eyes faded from red to sparkling grey. But on Sendren's fourteenth foundling day (Nanoni did not know the day of his birth, so instead they celebrated the day of his discovery) the people of Rabindasca converged upon Nanoni's forest home and killed and burned the old woman and her home. They scoured the forest and coast for Sendren, believing the old hermit and the ghost child had cursed their town and fishing season, but Sendren was nowhere to be found. He'd been swimming when the townspeople had come for Nanoni and had stayed in the water for nearly ten hours, until the beach was once again clear of people. He could barely return to the site of the hermit house to mourn the only person who had ever cared for him.To this day, Sendren cannot handle any type of fire. The same night, he stole a boat from the town and set out blindly. Nearly three weeks later, he found himself washed ashore on the island that laid claim to the quiet Forune Town, and one very angry monkey. It was by complete accident that Sendren and Homtae met, well at least on Sendren's part. The young albino had no idea where he was, so when a white-faced monkey launched itself out of a nearby tree at his face, howling of the injustice he had inflicted upon him, Sendren was a bit confused. Needless to say, it took quite a bit to pacify Homtae, and before Sendren mangaged it, he'd been given the long gash across his shoulder which would become his only scar. Once calm, it was Homtae that told Sendren of the experimentation and the ways of many other aspects of life he had not known growing up on his northen island. Homtae told of pirates and giant cities of spirits and angels. After the night where the two outcasts shared their stories with each other, the boy and the monkey became insprable, a sort of make-shift family. Together they began to travel and finally turned to pirating, since it was the one profession where it didn't matter that Sendren was so white that he glowed in the dark and that Homtae was a monkey that knew more about...well just about everything...than any normal man. Their crew-hopping brought them to the vessel Foretelling, where they encountered a young woman named Devlin. Needless to say they did not become fast friends--Devlin had never seen an albino and Sendren had never met someone quite that volitale. Thier first meeting went along the lines of:
Sendren: You've been staring at me for ten minutes. Is there seaweed in my hair or something?
Devlin: You're bright white.
Sendren: Yes, yes I am. And you are almost shorter than Homtae.
The captain had to come pry them off each other. Mostly Devlin, but Homtae is always up for a good hair-pulling. Somehow, through the fights and gambits and verbal harrasment, Devlin and Sendren ended up leading a mutiny together against the captian of the Foretelling, renaming it the Red Raven with Devlin captaining and Sendren at the helm as her new first mate.


[Homtae] Homtae was a expert sailor and navigator before being transformed into a monkey. Since he was old enough to set out on his own, Homtae has been wandering, he would be hard-pressed to tell you even where he was born. Though Homtae will always have a place in his heart of the City of Crimia, where he met the only woman he ever loved--a mountain girl named Shealanne (a name that means 'heart in the hills'). He arrived in Crimia at the age of 30, and stayed there with Shealanne for his longest stay in one place since his childhood, twenty years. Though they never married, they did have one child, a boy named Cailnonn (a name meaning 'ocean stone' to honor both of his parents). Homtae beleive his wandering days were over, so he set up practice as a wise man to the city, learning of the different races, their histories and hertiages, and the will and power of the land and sea. He became renoun in the city--he even learned how the folk of Crimia brew thier beer. Homtae's live seemed settled as is fiftieth birthday rolled around, but it was not to be. Cailnonn was eighteen, tall and dark like his father, with the wide, quick grin of his mother's face. All the city-folk had become endeared to the boy and his quiet, helpful nature, even the loud tread of his bare feet. But then one day, the loud tread was not heard anywhere in the city. Cailnonn had vanished. No note, no blood, nothing stolen, nothing was even missing from his things, the boy had just gone. Both of his parents searched frantically for weeks on end, until the fear and stress confined Shealanne to her bed. Even then Homtae searched. It seemed that Cailnonn had run off, just blown away with the wind--the thought of his son abandoning his mother broke Homtae's heart, but he understood the need to roam more than most, and had resigned imself to the fact that his son had taken the same path as he had as a young man, when the box arrived in town. It was a small, steel box, with Homtae's name scrawled in ink across the top. No one in town would touch it, said it felt of evil and darkness. Shealanne refused to look at it. It was up to Homtae to open the box, and even as he pried the lid open with long fingers he knew what he would find inside. Packed in layers of hay and ice inside the metal case was Cailnonn's head, perfectly severed and burned at the neck to stop the bleeding. It made him sick. That night, he buried his son's head hi an abandoned field, and the next morning, he left. Shealanne never knew what lay inside the metal box, and Homtae has not seen her since the morning when he kissed her goodbye as she slept. Once again he resumed his wanderings on the sea, which brought him to Forune Town, the site of the human/animal transformation experiments. He had always been facinated with the supernatural, and when offered the chance to become a supernatural being himself, he jumped. To Homtae, these experiments represented a way to wash away his old life, his old pains, and become a new being. Homtae was the oldest of the surviving subjects at 64 years old. When he realized what had happened to him, that he had been imprisoned in the body of a white-faced monkey, he was not exactly happy. Primal rage would actually before more accurate. He felt cheated and used. It wasn't until he attacked Sendren, three days after the accident, that he finally was able to let go of his blind rage. The boy Sendren reminded Homtae of Cailnonn, his lost son, with his quiet words and big feet. Homtae told Sendren of his life in Crimia, but they swore that they would never speak of their past to anyone, and from then on, they would simply be wanderers and happy out casts. Homtae had finally found what he was searching for--a fresh start.

Okay, I have a question. In Sendren's original character design, he was able to read bones-boil the bones of a sparrow in sea water, then cast them out and be able to predict the weather and certain events to come, sometimes be able to see ways out of danger or a puzzle. Would he still be able to do this or would that be considered magic?

Nice, you've really put thought into this. I'll probably jump in as long as I can, but my idea might bend the rules a bit:

I'm thinking a character who's primarily with whoever needs more people the most, but their loyalty's questionable. This is reflected by him popping into two or more sides as a temporary member, probably with them unaware of him working for another side. Or if they are, they know his loyalty is entirely to himself, so he has no immediate reason to betray anyone. For example, a Navy guy who might side with one crew to deal with the other more effectively.

Beside that, he's had several issues with ghosts and Anhel over time, the combination of which has let him begin to understand their power. Predominantly death-spells, both untamed and not ready to be used, though a hint of them may surface at times. He's unsure but suspicious that a cursed spirit resides in him. So far (apart from occasional touches of the above two), this magical connection has given him the ability to sense others' intentions and sometimes get him out of trouble, which helps him work for multiple agents without the Navy knowing.

Would any of that work?

I would dim that down a bit. If you really want to use magic, Pillage, then I suggest you play as a Vrida, who have the most magical abilities of the three playable races. Vrida can do things along the lines of pulling blood from enemies at a distance, hypnotism of weak minded people (usually only NPCs), and transforming into one of three animals (only for an hour at a time, but can be done at will); a bat, a rat, or a cat (can only have ONE of these, not two or all three!).

I didn't post this in the main post because I didn't want to risk everyone wanting to be a Vrida, but I guess i probably should have.

Just so everyone knows, this is how Lyoto work: they have unnaturally strong eyes, ears, and noses, strength, and speed. They are limited, however, in their control of their alternate form, which usually takes on the shape of a wolf-man hybrid. Some have been known to turn into feline-esque creatures, and some have been known to turn into bears. Unfortunately, alternate forms come with alternate personalities, with new names and mannerisms. Also, they tend to be belligerent, and aren't good at following orders. They can't change at will, though. They must see, smell, or hear something. This is usually the last thing they see, smell, or hear just before their first transformation, referred to as their "Rebirth". In many cases this is the moon, the smell of flesh, or the sound of waves against rocks.

I can't wait for more people to sign up.

He worked hard and eventually worked his way up to captain at the age of 30 when the previous one died. He captained on that ship for 1 year pirating, having fun, drinking rum ect. On one night his ship was ambushed by the navy and his entire crew was killed exept for him, he was to be hanged. One night in prison he bribed a guard and managed to escape the prison. From there he escaped and went back to the pirating life he so enjoyed. Although he never captains anymore because he believes he betrayed his fellow pirates on that one voyage. Shadow is that it is Drake's Brother. Drakes brother was captured and used in the experiment and is one of the 15 that survived. Shadow found Drake one day and explained the situation to him. Drake took him in and is always looking for a cure. However, there is always dispute over whether or not Shadow should go back to human form.

You are accepted, Darthwedge! Your History seems kind of empty, but that's okay. Just so you know, you will be starting in Destina City.

Oh, yeah, I forgot! Thanks for reminding me, nanuk.

Jay is hereby reserved as Captain of the Rival Crew, and Zombie is her first Mate.

We still need a Navy Captain and crew.

NOTE:

The OS Crew will meet for the first time in Destina City. It is up to the other captains how they know each other (whether they all start in a crew, or they meet for the first time as the RP starts)

Darthwedge
06/02/2007 5:32 PM

Thanks O_S and about my background. I wanted to keep his history a little secretive so I can reveal big plot benders during the role play. Also, at the time, i couldn't think straight :p.

06/02/2007 7:50 PM

That's OK. I'm really looking forward to starting this. I think it'll be much better than the last time :).

06/02/2007 9:35 PM

Yup, I'm first mate, sorry I forgot to clarify. Oh, and is the bone-reading thing okay or should I nix it?

O_S
06/02/2007 9:55 PM

It sounds more like a voo-doo thing than a magic thing, so I'll let you keep it. As long as it doesn't cause harm or heal people.

There may be one person who can cast magic. They know who they are, and if they don't post a character before the RP starts, then the first person to ask for a Magic Using character will have the right to one, so long as their character is old, and has mastered only one kind of magic.

NO ANGEL/DEMON PLAYERS, PERIOD.

I do hope that someone chooses to play as Lyoto or Vrida.

CandlestickJay
06/02/2007 10:21 PM

User Name: Kitos_Tallaran

Name: Damen Railward

Age: Unknown

Gender: Male

Crew: Rival

Appearance: Damen Railward is a man of medium stature, he was born with black hair but now contains blood red streams in his hair. His eye color is usally blue but when he casts his spells they turn a demonic yellow.

Weapons: He has an Unopo weapon called 'Fiert' which increases his abilities of casting of fire magic while supressing his demonic blood.

Items: Always brings along his handy pocket watch and book.

History: Damen Railward was born in Aspili City, two hundred years ago, where he grew up learning he had the natural ability to bend and summon fire. He was rejected and eventually banished by his fellow citizens because they were afraid of the power he wields. He traveled many lands, teaching himself new techniques to bend the flame to his will, he traveled with many pirates and even worked for the Navy from time to time.

Upon returning to his homeland, he began to be finally accepted at his place of birth. Later he accidentally lit a small girl on fire, upon burning her alive he realized he did not have complete control over his abilities. A demon realizing that Damen would do anything to take control of his life, he visited him.

Convincing Damen Railward that he would help him master his powers if only he sealed blood pact with him. Overridden with guilt, the young man accepted. Though the demon tricked him and tried to possess him Damen used all his willpower and killed the demon. Although the demon was dead, the dead demon's spirit gave complete over his powers, unknown length of life and superior strength.

Now Damen Railward after two hundred years, still searches for a place where he will not hurt anyone.

Aye, meself be the captain, and Zombie the first mate. However, when the Red Raven comes to port in Solunba, any of those willin to join me crew are able. Til then, to choose the Rival crew will be a Preferred crew, if that be allowed by OS.

Anyway, but here is my character.

User Name: CandlestickJay
Name: Captain Devlin Brevyn
Age: 24
Gender: Female
Crew: (OS, Rival, or Navy) : Rival
Appearance: With a long sword in her belt, the Captain stands a little over five feet tall, her thin features strong and finely crafted for fierce beauty. Her skin, once the color of perfect ivory has tanned to a navajo white, and clear blue eyes, eyes the color of the sea with a drifting fog, are shrouded by thick black lashes. Her hair itself contrasts her fine-tuned features, a wild nearly black mane of curly hair. It is tied by a single piece of teal ribbon with a small pearl threaded along it at the nape of her neck. It is not unusual for curls to be flying about her face in the wind, though never to block her vision, physically or psychologically.

As is common with most pirates, she wears a red and black bandana, covered by a simple black tri-corn hat. In her ears are four different piercings in both, each with an earring and a silver or bronze decoration. On her neck is tatooed a raven, his wings majestically stretched along her jawline, from her right ear and then downward, its sharp talons clenching her collarbone. When her head is turned to the left, with the beak open and blue eyes piercing and determined, the raven's head is artfully placed at the point where her right ear meets her jaw. The Raven itself is outlined in red.

Though small, she has a fierce and ultra feminine beauty about her, and as widely known for her beauty as much as her pirateering and fighting ways. Her garb is unique, with a fitted red corset that holds her form firmly but comfortably, and suits even the most dire of fights with impeccable ease. The corset itself is merely decorative. She wears a creme, often streaked with dirt, poet's shirt beneath the corset, then fitted black breeches that end at the knee, along with white tights and men's black boots.

At her waist is a simple belt, dotted with the strange and unusual. There are two pouches and several places for things to be hung. Among the items are a chain of beads, a carved figurine of a raven, a small knife, and it is said that inside one of the pouches is a man's tongue, cut from her lover in an furious rage.

A picture will be provided soon, for further detail.

Weapons: She carries a cutlass at her side, skillfully made and of high durability. Simple, but deadly in her possession. She also has a small dagger, an unopo weapon of unique design that gives the user a heightened sense of her surroundings. The Captain is unaware of any of its other uses, though it has another.

Items: Human Tongue. Chain of Ivory beads. Carved figurine of an raven. Rum. A pouch that rattles with money. A telescope. A compass. Typical captain stuff.

History: Devlin Brevyn was born in Habebubaba Town, one of a set of twins. Her parents raised her and her brother Daemon equally and fitfully, but in fear. The threat of the Vrida was growing, and they were becoming restless with the young women sent to them. Visitors grew scarce, and though Devlin grew into a learned and talented young woman, she was not liked for her sharp tongue and domineering attentions. On the eve of her twelth brithday, the number or young women to be sacrificed to the Vrida was one short. That very night, her brother was found with his throat slit beneath a tree just outside of the town. Devlin was found nearby as well, with his blood a thick coating on her motionless hands. It was then the tribe on Habebubaba decided she was to great of an evil, to great of a risk to be kept alive, and chose to sacrifice her to the Vrida.

This was not to be her fate. She escaped, bloody and near death from the Vrida, stowing away on the ship Revenge, captained by a pirate. Her presence did not go unknown on the ship. The men, deeply spiritual as most pirates are, sought to put her off at the next port. She convinced the captain to let her stay and she served as a cabin maid for six years under the same captain with several different crews. She learned the value of the pirate code, of ports and wines, men and pirates and where one began and the other let off. She learned the art of a pirate, slitting throats and stealing, lying and fighting with any weapon she came close to. Though nearly worth her weight in gold as a swordswoman, the captain became leery of having a full fledged, though short, woman on his ship and the affect that it had on his crew. They were often distracted by her blue eyes, the color of the sea and a drifting fog. He put her ashore, leaving her alone in Solunba.

Alone at eighteen, she fought her way through bars and brothels, until she met a pirate by the name of Carbry Williams. He was handsome, dashing, and in her mind everything a pirate should be. He was wicked, but she loved him, more than she had ever loved any other. Two years past in his arms until one day, she found him slobbering drunk in the arms of another woman, and another man. Appalled and furious, she tore him from the bed and through his inebriated form to the ground with her cutlass at his throat. It is told that she whispered to him, "Tell me why I should not slit your throat at this very moment." He returned with "Because I love you." As the story goes, she sliced his tongue from the ground, shouting and cursing at him, commanding him to not ever again tell a lie. Devlin left then, and has not been seen in Solunba until our story begins.

Taking a position on the pirate ship Foretelling, Devlin met for the first time a tall albino by the name of Sendren, and his monkey, Homtae. Their first meeting could not be called the beginning of a fast friendship. However as the captain ceased to amaze its crew again and again, mutiny loomed, and when it struck, at its head would be Devlin and Sendren. They abandoned the captain and renamed the ship the Red Raven, sailing with her new red sails. Together they commanded the ship with a ferocity that forced the other crew in line, Devlin as Captain and Sendren as first mate. The crew grew wary once again, and after another six years making a name for herself, the pirate Captain Brevyn put into port at Solunba for a new crew. Her expectations are high, and her temper short, and she expects nothing less than what she herself gives for the crew.

As far as pets go, Homtae is enough for Sendren AND Devlin, and is often more of a thorn in her side than a fun animal friend.

I absolutely ADORE having an artist for a best friend at times like these.

Darthwedge
06/04/2007 8:47 AM

Im still confused. I thought there is only 2 players per crew. There are 3 for rival crew, 2 for OS, and 0 for navy. Does that not mean someone on rival has to go navy?

The RP won't start until every crew has two members. OS Crew already has one (myself).


I could be wrong, but I was under the impression each crew had to have AT LEAST two members before we could begin. Not ONLY two. So we would need to wait on two navy members before we could start. But its OS's thread.

06/04/2007 1:21 PM

I want an artist for a best friend.
*sighs*

If not enough people join for a navy crew you could always have them as NPCs, with either OS or a volunteer controlling them.

O_S
06/04/2007 2:05 PM

Alright, then, let's see...hmmm...ah, yes. There must be AT LEAST two (2) crew members per crew. Jay is absolutely correct. Oh, and I do believe that if a volunteer was playing the Navy, they would just be players. There really wouldn't be a difference.

So, yeah. If someone wants to, I will allow them to play the Navy crew entirely by themselves, and to make things more interesting for the pirates, who ever plays the Navy will get six crew members, each with their own special abilities and purpose in the RP (but no pets!). This may seem like a lot of power, but whoever does this will have to make six characters, and will have to control all of them.

So, from the way things look, I begin alone (Owen and Bane), and meet DarthWedge (Drake Dolive) in Destina at the start, while Jay and Zombie are together, meeting Kitos in Solunba.
The Navy is empty.

Oh, and if only a few more join this, i may give my crew and the rival crew extra NPCs to make our crews even. These NPCs would be controlled by the captains, and would be generic so that if someone else joins the NPCs could be killed off easily.

Oh, and I finally named my ship!
Ship Name: Obsidian Seagull (sometimes called the Obsidigull)

Darthwedge
06/04/2007 2:56 PM

May i make a suggestion. I think we should either start now and screw the navy, or fill the navy with NPC's

O_S
06/04/2007 3:13 PM

I was kind of hoping for the Navy to have an important role in the RP. Plus, I don't have time to really start today. I hope to officially start by the end of the week though.

Darthwedge
06/04/2007 3:19 PM

Well if you put NPC's in the Navy you would have direct control over them and could make them have an importent role. Anyway, please try to get the story up as quick as possible, i am really anxious.

CandlestickJay
06/04/2007 6:52 PM

I do hope the Navy has an important role as well. Someone go hunting for a strong roleplayer to take charge!

Wow, both of our ships are birds.

Obsidigull and Red Raven

Interesting.

But I have a tattoo. Bet you don't have one of those.

No, but I do have a scar on my arm, and that's based on a REAL scar I actually have (from running into a window when I was five or six). Good times.

That's a cool picture. Wish I could draw like that (or exploit the talents of my artistic friends).

Spread the word, people: we need an awesome player to be our Navy Crew!

His name is GTSinc.

I'm definitely not really all here this morning. I read that, and thought, his name is GTSinc??? Like, his actual NAME?

And then I realised that was probably his sn. *bangs her head against a tree*

But I am very glad we may have a Navy captain. I'm so excited about getting started.

And here is Sendren and Homtae, curtesy of Zombie of course.

Well, get your friend to post, Darthwedge, and we'll see if his Navy is good enough.

I have to watch this new movie now, so I'll see ya'll in a bit.

If you want to be captain of the Navy, all you have to do is post the character, and if I accept you (which I most likely will), then you'll get to be Navy Captain .

Shigetomo
06/06/2007 2:25 PM

User Name: Shigetomo
Name: Jack Rackham
Age: 28
Gender: Male
Crew: OS
Appearance: Jack stands about six feet tall and wears a black overcoat and tri-pointed hat. He has dreadlocks and dark, sunburnt, skin. A large man he stands broad at the shoulder and narrows out at the hips making him very powerfull in the upper body. He carries a cutlass at his side and two matchlock pistols on his belt. His belt itself is no more than a large leather belt that is found around the world, Beneath his black overcoat he wears a white wool shirt and a gray vest. His small beard ends in a point just below his chin.
Weapons: Cutlass and two pistols. The cutlass is of high durability and seems to be a plaine sword, however, there are actually no other swords of any resemblance to it in the world. The pistols themselves are just ordinary ones of medium durability taken from an armory connected to a prison that he once escaped from.
Items: none (yet, maybe some later)
History: Always a seaman Jack moved all over the Archipelago and no one knows his actually birth place. A crew member of many different ships over the years he has been arrested several times for various charges that include piracy. On one such occassion he managed to trick the prison guard into a game of dice for the keys. The guard, being very good at this game, agreed and they started playing. At the time of his loss the guard immediatly refused Jack the keys but it was too late, Jacks plan was not to win the game at all, just to get the guard into the cell. Having only achieved his victory by mere luck Jack slammed the guards head against the iron bars knocking him out, then walking away, locked the guard into the cell and Jack went for the armoy. Upon reclaiming his personal effcts which were kept there he also took two pistols he thought were very nice. After escaping the prison Jack has been on the run ever since.

Hello everybody, I guess i'm the new navy guy in this story, just to let everyone know, i'll sometimes be in and out of this whole thing, but not just this RPG. Darth wedge can spare you with details, but i'm (most of the time) not on, but i will be on from time to time, so......yeah. Also, Im going to be in need of some big time catching up, so if anyone at all (besides Darthwedge) can help fill me in, that would be great. And another thing, if your curious about me, cause I read the last post that darthwedge posted, just go to my newly updated profile and it'll tell you everything there is to know about me.

Shigetomo I know you probally like pirates of the carribean but come up with some original ideas.

Darthwedge
06/06/2007 5:27 PM

The navy was intent on destroying all pirates. They would not "stoop to a pirates level" to defeat them either. The navy would use more "civilized ways to defeat the pirate barbarians".

These are my thoughts.

XxZebxX
06/06/2007 5:34 PM

Do you call a bluderbuss "stooping to a pirates level" do you call them civilized.
They were used by the British navy trust me i renact in my spare time.

Alright, Zeb, I am okay with the amount of weapons you have, but I would appreciate it if you used items in the first post. I don't care if people say Cutlass, but I will not except the Scottish Dirk. Also, what is a flitlock?

Mith said he wouldn't be on often, and Zeb posted first, so after he edits his sheet, he will be declared Captain of the Navy.

And Shigetomo: As long as you are not a kooky pirate then you are excepted. See you in Destina, mate.

Alright, as soon as Mith posts a character, the RP shall begin!

I'll check in again later tonight. See ya.

And to you shigetomo ive seen you steal plenty of ideas before so dont say your idea was original, I mean god you used the name jack!
The prison escape seemd to be exactly like Pirates of the carribean Dead Mans Chest,
and the bgining of the game Pirates Of The Carribean At worlds End.
My info for that the first level of the game and the 2nd or 3rd sene of the 2nd movie.

Dont take others ideas and mix them with your own.

xXRathXx
06/06/2007 10:49 PM

Zeb wanted me to get into this one and I've kinda been itchin to RP a pirate since POC3 came out.

User Name: xXRathXx
Name: Eric Nightray
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Crew: Navy (Talked into it by Zebulun in Destina)
Appearence: Eric stands at exactly 6 foot maybe an inch above. He is thin and has a firm muscular build. His thin face has handsome features but it's usually covered up by a layer of dirt mixed, most likely, with cannon or gun powder. He wears a black linen shirt with long sleeves. It is most likely torn in a few places from all the dueling he does. He's a top dueler. He wears a dark blue jacket over it with black embroidering. His pants are long and black. They bulge up near his boots where they are tucked in. His boots go halfway up his shins and are made of sturdy leather, they are both comfortable and functional. The buttons on his jacket are silver and the Nightray family emblem is carved into them. He wears a leather belt and a red and black cloth around his waist. Tied to his belt are his sword and pistol holsters, a pouch containing his gold, a pouch containing shot, and a miniature barrel of powder. He has shaggy brown hair which is usually covered up partially by an indigo bandana. He has emerald green eyes that seem to glow at night because they reflect even low amounts of light.

Weapons: He wears a custom made cutlass at his right side called BlackPearl. It was hand crafted and given to him as a gift from his father. It's blade is long and razor sharp, it is light and fast with precision striking as it was intended to be. The handguard is a metal spiral of pure gold and silver. Stuck into the gold and silver spiral are small white pearls that vary in size and in the middle is a large black pearl. It happens to be one of the mystical Unopo Weapons with the powers of darkness and light that are channeled through the black pearl (dark) and the white pearls (light). It's dark powers can only be used at night when the moon is visable, if it's a new moon then he cannot use them. His light powers can be used during the day but not at sunset or sunrise. He also carries a common broadsword on the left side. It is slightly shorter than his cutlass and is used as more of a side arm for blocking or quick sneak attacks. Also at his right side he carries a black custom pistol with silver designs carved into the side. It's a flintlock like most pistols but it has two barrels. It loads fast and fires strong shots.

Items: Rum, Rum, A pouch of shot, Rum, A small powder barrel, A pouch of money, Rum, A set of lockpicks, A strange key that seems to fit almost any lock (It's very important and unlocks a certain chest that goes along with his past), Did I mention Rum?

History: Eric was born into a wealthy family. They were one of the richest families around and well known in many places. One calm and eerie evening bandits attacked the small port island that he lived on. They left no house or building unchecked and killed everyone they saw. Only Eric and a few others escaped. Eric and his siblings hid in the cellar.

Eric was nearly killed when he decided to leave the cellar to get a few important items. The main item was the grand sword his father had ordered to be made for Eric to celebrate his upcoming 16th birthday. He also grabbed the key mentioned in his list of items and as much money as he could. Eric had always been a clever boy and did not want to think that his parents would most likely die but he prepared to take care of his siblings anyways.

The bandits left and Eric along with his siblings ventured into the streets to find anyone they could. Their parents were dead but his grandparents were a few of the lucky people left alive. Eric and his siblings lived with them until he turned 19 and then he ventured out to the seas. He hasn't made contact with any of his family since and is believed to be the last Nightray.

The seas had always called to him and he searched for adventure. He became a fairly known pirate on his travels. He worked with a few crews but decided that working on his own was much more exciting. Though soon after the sea called him back and he longed to be aboard a ship (which he couldn't do since you obviously need a crew to man a ship). So he has come to Destina to join the ranks of a crew.

Zeb -- Approved, but the Scottish dirk will be removed. There is no Scotland in Alnaria.
Rath -- Approved.

So, I guess we should discuss my crew's sudden increase. The Rival Crew gets one NPC if they don't get another player, and the Navy Captain can create as many generic crewmen as he wishes for his crew. If I missed anyone in the Navy Crew, sorry.

So, once Jay tells me whether she wants an NPC or a Player, we will begin!

my idea was original...I went on a pirate name generator and got that name...the history I completely made up and I will not have a noob telling me otherwise. If the history is anything remotely like what you describe than it is by pure chance, I do not take copyrighted material. I have never once stolen anyone elses idea and incorporated it with my own, if you believe I have name it

Darthwedge
06/07/2007 11:58 AM

The noob is right. Everything about your character (except the name) is exactly the same as Jack sparrow. You even said "Effects" like jack always says.

Darthwedge
06/07/2007 12:01 PM

No one is accusing you of anything. We just want you to change your character, if you thought up everything about your previous character then this should be easy.

Shigetomo
06/07/2007 12:13 PM

I made him look similar to jack sparrow yes, however he will not in anyway affect the storyline and for your information, ones personal items are called effects by everyone who speaks proper english. And seeing as my character has already been approved that is all i am going to say on the matter.

xXRathXx
06/07/2007 12:28 PM

Shigetomo you've crossed the damn line. Your ideas are never original and they are especially not if you used a name generator. Your character is exactly like Jack Sparrow and affects is not a word used by modern day people, even people that use proper english. You can insult anybody else but I damn sure won't have YOU of all people call my best friend a noob. You're the noob. I don't give a shit about your damn rank, ranks don't count for shit here. It just means you've posted a lot, it speaks nothing for the quality of your roleplaying.

You've never come up with an original idea in your life. For the Marvel thread you used the character Toxin which is a Marvel character, you described him exactly as he is in the comics down to the last detail. The only thing you changed was the human he was paired with. I've hardly ever seen you join threads that were spawned from original ideas, most likely because if you did you would have the hardest time ever thinking up an original character.

My friend Zeb makes all his own characters with time and effort, albeit he uses the name Zebulun alot but that's not bad. He has posts with actual quality and substance to them, sure he messes up some spelling and grammar things but at least he makes a damn attempt. The point is, don't you dare insult him until you can give me proof that you're original and that you're a good roleplayer.

Question refrence the Lyota, as I'm working on a character for the rival crew:

Are they born shapeshifters, or is like lycanthropy and somehow caught? If born, is it random, or do some have human kin? I feel like I read this somewhere, but I've scoured the two threads and coming up short. :) And would a feline Lyota be alright?

Wow. Is it finally over? So...Shigetomo, Zeb; both of you shake hands or I can't start the RP. Even if you are opposing in the RP, I would like everyone to be as amiable as humanly possible, and although this accusatory war appears to be over, I would like you to shake hands still.

And now, concerning the question about Lyota by Tygress:


Just so everyone knows, this is how Lyoto work: they have unnaturally strong eyes, ears, and noses, strength, and speed. They are limited, however, in their control of their alternate form, which usually takes on the shape of a wolf-man hybrid. Some have been known to turn into feline-esque creatures, and some have been known to turn into bears. Unfortunately, alternate forms come with alternate personalities, with new names and mannerisms. Also, they tend to be belligerent, and aren't good at following orders. They can't change at will, though. They must see, smell, or hear something. This is usually the last thing they see, smell, or hear just before their first transformation, referred to as their "Rebirth". In many cases this is the moon, the smell of flesh, or the sound of waves against rocks.


They are transformed by an other one, which determines what kind of Lyota they become. As you can see, there are feline-esque Lyota. Also, remember the stimulus you need in order to transform, and the fact that your transformed state is hard to control. Oh, and I would very much appreciate it if you joined Jay's crew so she didn't have to use an NPC. She is the Captain of the Rival Crew, in case you didn't already know.

xXRathXx

You can have it Rath, i dont want it anymore. O_S, i want to transfer from OS crew over to the Rival crew.

xXRathXx
06/08/2007 12:09 PM

O.o but that doesn't work out... Zeb kept nagging me to join the Navy and I finally figured a way to do that. He said we would be more like a piratey navy than a royal navy. So that means Rival crew will have 3 and OS crew will have 1 and Navy has 2.

Darthwedge
06/08/2007 12:17 PM

Ok fine then ill stay on OS crew. But you do know that Mith is still gonna join right? Last time i talked to him he said he is busy and would have his char up later.

Hey now hey now, don't give him crap just because he wants to join the (obviously) coolest pirate crew in this here world.

The crew of the Red Raven. Bwah. Ha. Ha. Ha.

xXRathXx
06/08/2007 3:20 PM

No, it is obviously not the coolest. I mean, Red Raven? That's dumb. Ravens aren't red. The Pirate Navy is the best. Because we're pirates. And we're sailors.

The Pirate Navy is the best. Because we're pirates. And we're sailors.


...I really want to start arguing with you about the many unseemly, unhistorical paradoxes of "Pirate" "Navy". Tres dumb, no offense.

xXRathXx
06/08/2007 4:14 PM

We're not really pirates, but we're not like a Royal Navy. Royal Navys have to follow strict code and they serve under some sort of king. We're more like....a Navy without so many strict policies. It was the only way Zeb could talk me out of being an actual pirate in an actual pirate crew.

I win.

Besides nothing in this roleplay has to do with anything historical. I mean, we're set in a different world, we have creatures besides animals and humans, we use limited amounts of magic. Not historical in any way. Unless you're going to pull out something about the historical part of pirates in our world.

I'm an arguing master Jay, think of the wrath you shall bring upon yourself. Or the Rath more likely. Yes that's correct, I'm going to track you down and glomp your brains with my magical wittiness.

CandlestickJay
06/08/2007 4:19 PM

I think I'm just gonna go to work, and we'll discuss this AFTER Darthwedge joins my crew. SImply because I am cooler than the ....*giggle* Pirate Navy.

Darthwedge
06/08/2007 4:22 PM

Well now, if rath is in the navy then im gonna stay in OS crew. I don't know what Mith is gonna do though, he said he wanted to join the Navy.

xXRathXx
06/08/2007 4:24 PM

HAHA! See Jay, your crew is so lame that he changed his mind about joining xD and the new kid wants to join our crew!

Lurf

Z+R

Royal commanders and super nova alien android pirates of the Pirate Navy.

Darthwedge
06/08/2007 4:27 PM

I never said i changed my mind. I was only going there because OS was unbalenced. Either one is fine for me i dont care. And Mith wanted to be navy before you were there......

xXRathXx
06/08/2007 4:33 PM

Technically you did change your mind about moving because you heard that I wanted to be with Navy. Also it doesn't matter that Mith, whoever the devil he is, wanted to be on the Navy before I was here. It rocked then and it rocks harder now.

O_S
06/08/2007 6:56 PM

What a mess...

Okay, so...this RP takes place in a world where there is a history, and, contrary to popular belief, it is recorded! Pages upon pages of the History of Alnaria exist on my hard drive. So this is historical.

About having a "pirate navy", I think there should be some ground rules; first, you don't do anything like a pirate. You are the f'ing Navy, and the f'ing Navy does follow rules. But, sometimes the members of the Navy are corrupt. If you so wish to be corrupt, then go ahead; I won't stop you. But keep in mind, you need connections to sustain a corrupt life-style.

Okay, so from what I understand, the OS crew consists of: me, Darthwedge, Shigetomo, and Rath. Rival Crew: Jay, Zombie, and Kitos_Tallaran. Navy: Zeb

That is how my Records are setup. If I missed anyone (which I'm sure I did), or if I have someone in the wrong crew, please let me know, or this whole mess will get worse.

If there hadn't been nearly two pages of...this mess...then we could have started sooner, but I'm afraid to go through it all to find the stuff that is relevant to the RP.

Darthwedge
06/08/2007 6:58 PM

Yeah lets just start. I am willing to switch over to rival crew if OS gets to overpowered. Also, Mith said he was working on a character, but we just need to start without him.

Piratey navy A.K.A priviteers. Years on the oceans 1736 to 1816.

but yews the navy dose have a some what navy structure as in serving in a cuase for a king that is not piracy and also concouring rival ships for the crown. (crown+ Royalty)

XxZebxX
06/08/2007 7:04 PM

I thought Rath was going to be navy?

O_S
06/08/2007 8:23 PM

That list is based on the original sheets I stored in MS Word files after they were posted. I don't think I moved any around, and I skimmed through the whole fight mess.

CandlestickJay
06/08/2007 8:33 PM

I'll clean up my crap from the last two pages if you like.

And I agree with O_S, and here, his word is law.

this is what I was TRYING to say.

But anyway, going to go take a monstrousity of an ACT test now. later.

I am in the Navy, I edited my sheet to say that but we still have to have that little talk between our characters.

The history of Alnaria. It has nothing to do with real world history. I was talking about real world history.

Are we starting?

Alright, final listings:

OS Crew--me, Darthwedge, and Shigetomo.
Rival Crew--Jay, Zombie, and Kitos
Navy Crew--Zeb and Rath

Perfect. Oh, and if any of you OS Crew members are wanting to know who my first mate is, it will be revealed during the coarse of Chapter I: A Pirate's Life.

Let the games begin!

Well, I'd be the corrupt side of that. Zeb would technically be hiring me on to work for him because of my 'skillz'. It's KIND OF like in POC3 when Beckett forced Davy Jones to work for him because he had something he wanted. Which happened to be his heart but still. Zeb doesn't really have anything that I want. Except a ship, a crew, and a nice position on the sea. Which is all Eric really wants, to be part of a crew and sailing the seas. It doesn't matter who he's sailing for.

Rath and Zeb, doesn't that fight seem unrealistic? I mean if the pirates all had pistols, why didn't they just shoot you?

Eh, he's the one that said pistols.

No, i would shoot you because you just killed my friend. Also you do realize how difficult it is to throw your sword right?

XxZebxX
06/09/2007 7:19 PM

yes i know how hard it would be to trow a sword but theres a psycological factor in there provideing my person enough time to draw his pistol and shot another guy + raths person fighting too.

xXRathXx
06/09/2007 7:20 PM

Just leave him alone Wedgie. This RP doesn't seem all that realistic so why are we debating wether or not we'd get shot and if he could throw his sword with that accuracy.

It is a bit difficult mate. If you could make more of an attempt at grammar then I wouldn't mind all your spelling errors. Don't mind him Jay, he does what he can. He's actually really intelligent in person, it just doesn't seem that way on the web.

Hello everyone, i'm sorry for my long absence, I know all of you do not know most of me (mostly because I have only posted once), but I bring grim news about my time here and my role in Seas of San Tosa. Because of my god-damn grade card and my over obsessiveness in video games and computers, I have been banned from the internet. But I also carry good news, but it's still kinda crappy. I will be able to "sneak" online on sunday, wedesday but that is all. I am currently trying to create my character and ill post back when im done, and by the way, I'm on the Rival side.

06/10/2007 2:06 PM

Hey OS is it cool if I make Eric's sword, BlackPearl, one of those special weapons? I've been thinking something along the lines of it being a dark blade at night but in the day it is a sword of light. It draws it's dark powers from the large black pearl and all of it's light powers from the small white pearls. If that's ok with you then I'll add it to my character sheet.

06/10/2007 8:25 PM

Rath--Sure thing. It is very common for Unopo Weapons to be Dependant on time, weather, amount of light, etc. I would prefer you chose something different than day/night, but if you really want it, go ahead.

It was all I could think of but I could come up with something more specific like, dark powers from the moon and light powers from the sun if that's alright.
