    The White Star Liner, RMS Titanic, the fanciest and most luxurious ship to ever grace the Atlantic has just announced that it will be shipping out, and lucky for you, you've got a ticket, packed your bags and have made your way to the port! Little do you know the tragic fate that awaits you but at least you have four days from launch to relax, enjoy and explore the grandeur until 2:14am on April 15th...then you better be searching for escape, or let death find you!

    This is a game based off of the historic event where thousands of people lost their lives due to the crash of the Titanic. You will play a character who is aboard the fated liner, what happens is up to you remember this game will end in tragedy, will your character have the guts to survive? Will they end up accepting death and going down with the ship?

    Rules:

    No specific characters (i.e. no Unsinkable Molly Brown) or copying the movie's characters (at least by name)

    You can play of any class, or be part of the crew, just remember that it's nigh impossible for steerage people to get up to first class, but second class has a bit more mobility and first class can go where they please but they'd probably disdain going to the steerage areas

    135 lbs.

    Personality:
    A party girl that can never turn down a good time. She can prove that money buys happiness, even though deep down she wishes to find a prince charming. Nathalie has an eye for art and poetry; that's one of the easiest ways to get her attention. She also loves compliments and attention. She knows she's a beautiful woman and feels ten feet tall when people acknowledge it.

    History:
    Both of Nathalie's parents would spoil her rotten because she was their only child and they could afford to. Women were always jealous of her and men always wanted her. No one would be able to tell you how many relationships she went through because no one is quite good enough for her. As a birthday present, her parents bought her a first class ticket to ride the Titanic and sent her off to England so she could board it. They said there was a beautiful home waiting for her in New York, where she could start her own life because that was her dream. She wants to someday start her own fashion industry. Nathalie kept hearing success stories about Americans as she grew up in France, so she spent a few years learning English so she could fit in and communicate better.

    Age:
    16

    Personality:
    Energetic and fully focused on the tasks ahead, young Pascoe is a dream to order around. He's usually in a good mood and while he doesn't try to everybody's friend, he'll keep whoever he holds grudges against to himself. With that said, summed up he could be described as disciplined and easy-going.

    History: A native of Southampton, Ricky was one of the lucky few who got to join the crew as a bell boy. By lucky, it should be taken notice that he was hiding from the cops for stealing from a local grocery. His father, a salesman, got him the job since he had contacts among the crew to help him out. John looks at this as an opportunity for adventure!
