"I'll walk you." Aeleosir stated kindly, then offered up his arm.
SO multiple characters then/
If you don't want to die after the second day, yeah that'd be a good idea. Oh! and I almost forgot to add ethnic background (namely what country or countries your character's nationality is). This could probably go under general history. It'll make sense later.
Anya smile and took his arm.
What year is this set in?
And is it just archaeologists, or would there be other scientists?
I'm in. Char profile coming up.
Asmo: The story is set in Modern Day, so pretty much right now would be the setting. And I'd imagine the expedition would consist of not just archeologists, but linguists, paranormal investigators, and maybe a camera man. Plus don't forget that these people brought their families along, so they could have a different job altogether.
TK: Look forward to seeing it.
I HATE YOU! GAH!
I can't join this. This looks so incredibly cool, and you post it in the middle of my irl crisis. Hate you.
Hate you hate you.
It'll probably be awhile before the RP is up and running, TZS. I did ask for twenty characters afterall. You should still be able to join by the time your computer problem is solved.
Another thing I forgot about. Medical! To make sure everyone doesn't die first day, we need a ship doctor and maybe a passenger who could be a doctor or nurse. Any volunteers?
I'll do Doctor, Magazine journalist/photographer and maybe one other.
By all means, go ahead. I never mentioned a journalist, though it occurs to me that it'd be a good idea.
Okay, I don't hold it against anybody, but this lack of activity is starting to piss me off. I'm PMing you people right after I post this.
Character Name: Dr. Richard Smithson
Current Goal/Purpose: Make a living
Once a young enthusiastic doctor in charge of the diagnostics department at St. Jude's hospital hes now reduces to drunk, sorry state. Left by his wife, his children taken from him, fired from his job, constantly searching for the answer to his problems at the bottom of a bottle and prone to outbursts and seasickness.
Almost a prodigy he excelled at school, finishing in the top percent during his medical exam and going strait into a prominent position at St. Jude's. Marrying one of the interns and having two children, both boys. Allegations of unethical practices and resulting legal suits saw him being used as a scapegoat and all but losing his license, wife, sons and job gone he took the first job that he found, on exploration party heading for an island in the south atlantic.
Hmm. That's pretty good. I hope you don't mind me saying so, but it sounds like killing him would put him out of his misery. I hope he's not drinking WHILE he takes care of the group.
*gets dragged in, beaten and bleeding, with Quiet One's boot-prints on his spine*
Ah right... multiple characters. Cool. I'll throw some up once I get my morphine.
*Tends to Asmo* Working on the char. Have to do a quick online quiz for my sociology class first, though.
Come on, Asmo. I was the most timid when I PMed you. (You still weird me out)
TK, and I guess everybody, don't forget you can do their family members, too. We need the horrible, heartwrenching trauma of loved ones being hideously mauled and eaten before our very eyes. I don't know if you want to try and put them all in one character sheet (not sure if that's enough info) or try to do each family member separately (seems a little tedious to me).
Also remember that a decent crew is needed. I may just fill in the first mate and one other guy and make the other three NPC's, but I'd like not to do that.
*hopes no one noticed that he almost deleted this thread by accident* o__O

Some say he was a hired killer before he joined the crew, and few would ever be brave enough to ask Mason if this is true.<P><P></td></tr><tr></tr></table>
Oh, you gave me quite a few people to love and hate. I think Jack and Reese are going to have problems as to who's in charge. I think I can work out an understanding between the captain and Harley. And your personality description makes me want to kill Ron as painfully as possible. I like Kyle and Melinda, too, though it makes me sad to take such a sweet old lady to such an awful place. I approve all of 'em!
Character Name: Craig "Crack" Harken
Occupation: First Mate
General Appearance: Burly with dark black skin, showing his decent straight from the heart of Africa. His head is bald and he has deep, sleep-deprived eyes that always carry a tint of pink. He is often dressed in jeans encrusted with dirt and salt, as well as a sleeveless black shirt that hugs tightly against his large, sculpted torso. His eyes are black, and seem to carry with them the depth of the night sky.
Current Goal/Purpose: See to the safety of the passengers/follow the captain's orders
General Personality: Exceptionally quiet. Rarely speaks to anyone except the captain and Harley. When he does speak for all to hear, he surprises them with deep comments referencing fate and future struggle. On the surface he seems to simply be trying to make a living. But every once in a while that bizarre level of depth surfaces.
General History: His family moved him out of Africa shortly after he was born. He was given the name Craig Harken to fit into western culture, though he always seemed to belong to another world. He spent much of life in Brazil, and in fact met his captain when he stopped there. When the crew had come together, Craig was the wash hand, swabbing the poopdeck, as it were. Over time Reese steadily promoted him to first mate. He had been given the nickname Crack by other members of the crew for his oddly inciteful outbursts, convincing almost eveyone that he was at least partly insane. He himself suspects that it may just be some tribal magic from his African ancestors.
