  1. Genre: Historicalish Fantasy
    Rating: R ARRR! Pillagin'! Killin'! Rapin'! Bunch of filthy no bastards!
    Mood: Think; Pirates of the Caribbean!
    Game Masters: Hi, I'm Diana and this is Rory. :D We'll be your Plotmasters of the evening!

    Joining: Still Accepting Characters!

    The Sea Raven, a hauntingly beautiful ocean vessel, has been the most romanticized ship to sail the seas. This might be due to the very un-pirate like behavior by it's Captain and crew for at least three generations. Thwarting scourges of the ocean, stealing treasure from unworthy hands, annoying the Royal Navy, and most notoriously rescuing of pretty damsels in distress. Despite heroic tales of their exploits, their operations are still "less than legal", always leaving the crew of the Sea Raven needing to keep one step ahead of their enemies.

    ...until girls get involved, then all hell breaks loose.

    Be you crew or foe, when the Sea Raven is involved, it's going to be an adventure!

    <b>We begin with...</b>
    The Captain of the Sea Raven is a bit of a prettyboy and well, he tends to get involved with his "great love" of the moment. His first mate, well, she has big secret of her own. Both tend to lead to a few "misunderstandings" and getting chased down by the Royal Navy and a few rivals! The rest of the plotlines... well, that falls upon what the rest of the Crew gets in to!

    Captain Guilaume Burgess of the Sea Raven: Played by Mister Rory. :D He's a pretty boy and likes the boobies.
    Delilah Red, First Mate: Played by Diana. She's a man hatin' meanie!
    The Huntmaster: Played by Mister Warde. Our master of the beverages and cook!
    Aleksandr Verrader, Quartermaster: Played by Mister Ric!
    Elizabeth de Brinvilliers, Doctor: Played by Miss Alarice! She's a scary lady!
    Margaret (Maggie) O'Duibhidhir, Navigator: Played by Zerosy! What a nice little lady amongst pirates!
    Commodore Augustus Seagraves: Played by Rory. He's a big jerkface that hates pirates!

    We're using the mini template, but feel free to add extra data! Just post your bio and so long as you're not doing anything crazy, you're a.OKAY! We're taking characters for crew on the Sea Raven, but if you want to play other kinds of characters, that is cool too!

  2. Character Name: The Huntmaster
    Gender: Brewer/Master of Beverages/Cook
    Age: Undetermined, looks Middle aged but seems to have the wisdom of an old man
    General Appearance:
    rather than a hook he has a metal false hand, that keeps a Tankard (occasionally filled with ale)
    Current Goal/Purpose: Vengeance
    General Personality: Stoic, Quick to Anger though just as Quick to calm himself, The Huntmaster can be a patient man with his allies, though his patience does tend to wear thin very quickly with his enemies
    General History:
    Whilst his original name has been long forgotten, tales of the Huntmaster's brews are legendary among drinkers, with a pint of his ale being said to be worth more than an entire keg of lesser ale.

    Another facet to his tale is his supposed execution by the Royal Navy for smuggling his Brews, though it is said that he was hung by the neck until dead, At first Rumors that he had survived the hanging, and was seeking revenge on those who sold him out to the Navy, others say that the Navy captured his son and hanged him instead, others still claim that the Navy simply hung a petty theif they had dressed up to LOOK like the Huntmaster.

    whatever the truth may be, it is known that the Huntmaster is in fact alive and brewing, and that he bears a formidable grudge against the Royal Navy, especially a Certain Royal Navy Captain.

    it is also known that under his watchful eye masterfully crafted feasts are had by the crew of the Sea Raven, and that only the finest beverages are served

    The Huntmaster:

    In a time when men knew the meaning of fear
    And the tyrants of hell ruled the land and the seas
    There lived one man who was true
    Guardian of secrets that only he knew
    Condemned for a crime that he did not commit
    Sentenced to die in the depths of the pit
    He swore he would take his revenge
    Every laster traitor, their lives he would end

    With the power of ale - He could not fail

    Sail into battle, glory and metal

    Hail! - Huntmaster
    Ride! - Huntmaster
    Fight! - Huntmaster
    Die! - Huntmaster

    Up from the bowels of hell he sailed
    Wielding a tankard of freshley brewed ale
    Slaying all those in his path
    Those who might hinder his god-given task
    To bring back beer to the lands of the free
    This is his quest, his true destiny
    Legends shall speak of his name
    Hail the Huntmaster, with honour and fame

    With the power of ale - He could not fail

    Sail into battle, glory and metal

    Hail! - Huntmaster
    Ride! - Huntmaster
    Fight! - Huntmaster
    Die! - Huntmaster

    This is the hunter's badge of glory
    That he protects and tends his quarry
    Hunts with honor, as is due
    And through the beast to the Gods is true
  3. Character Name:Commander Guilaume Burgess

    Gender: Male

    Job/Role: Captain of the Sea Raven

    Age: 33

    General Appearance:
    Show Spoiler

    Current Goal/Purpose: The three G’s: Gold, God, and Glory, save for the God part. And most likely the gold, though glory is good for getting women…Both are good…

    General Personality:He’s a brash thinker, charging into battle when he probably shouldn’t. Not exactly the most sane person you’d ever meet, he’s been know to get in fist fights with pit bulls and likes posing a lot. And he loves women, even if they don’t love him.

    However, this is just an act.

    Guilaume is an agile athlete and acrobat, using his bullwhip as a gymnastic accoutrement to swing through gaps between city roofs, and is very capable of landing from great heights and taking a fall. Although he is a master swordsman and marksman, he has more than once demonstrated his more than able prowess in unarmed combat, against multiple opponents.

    His calculating and precise dexterity as a tactician has enabled him to use his two main weapons, his sword and bullwhip, as an extension of his very deft hand. He never uses brute strength, more his fox-like sly mind and well-practiced technique to outmatch an opponent. Usually he uses psychological mockery to make his opponents too angry to be coordinated in combat.

    General History: Guilaume is a French man growing up in an upper class home. However, his father had become a heavy drinker during the height of some war happening on the mainland of Europe because his investments were getting destroyed by English privateers. Fearing tax sharks and debters the family moved to the New World Colonies and have since been living in New Orleans under a fictional surname. Guilaume is now the acting captian of the Sea Raven because he is a good show off and Marcus Red, respects him for some reason….

  4. Character Name: Delilah Red (Kingston)
    Gender: Female
    Age: 26
    Occupation: First Mate - Pirate.

    General Appearance: Curly red hair, light blue eyes, a stern expression, strong solid body, modest breasts. Favors practical non-flashy clothing.
    Strengths: A great deal of physical endurance and pain tolerance that can rival most men.
    Weaknesses: A few old injuries give her issues during storms or cold weather.

    Current Goal/Purpose: Adventure.
    Talents: Shooting.
    Inabilities: Cooking.
    Fears: The past catching up with her. Being tied down. Any sort of feeling of being trapped or confined.
    General Personality: Delilah can easily be described as a controlled wild woman. She has a strong presence that suggests good breeding, but being a free spirit she can let loose and get wild when fire gets to her. She commands through strong leadership (though occasionally insulting, when it comes to dealing with "stupid" people) but always acts with fairness and good humor. What she's not fond of is anyone trying to "woo" her or tie her down to some frilly romantic relationship. Delilah values her personal freedom. Her loyalties lie with the Sea Raven, and she never betray her crew!
    Inner Personality: What you see is what you get! The only thing Delilah keeps to herself is her worries and fears. She has no desire to go home and be some kept trophy wife. Thoughts of prison also aren't all that appealing.
    Secret: Delilah is the only daughter to Earl Albus Kingston IV and ditched a betrothed engagement to a man she never met many many years ago.

    General History:
    Born as the only daughter and heir to Earl Albus Kingston IV, a well-standing man who was very fond of his rules and traditions. His wife was a tad more flexible, but after her death while Delilah was still young, he made sure to enforce everything to a smothering degree. Delilah was always naturally a free spirit, so when she discovered her father had her betrothed to some stranger she never met - she took off. Uncle Marcus told her enough stories, she was able to track the man down. She showed up demanding that Marcus let her be crew. She's worked hard from being a cabin girl up to being First Mate simply be determination and wit. Delilah has no desire to be Captain, she's content being on crew and sailing the seas.

    Present Life: It's been just over five years with the Sea Raven. Delilah has taken to this life well.
  5. I am soooo in. Would Rory let me play The main Navy guy? Oh pretty pretty please? I'll bring all the pomp and ferocity I saved up from those other rps that spasmed, died, and rotted.

    o.o I swear it isn't poisonous.

    In short, I'll be joining so I will...and I take it magic is out perhaps? A ship's mage would be oh so delightful...but I take it we aren't wielding arcana out the ass eh?

    Anywhos, let me know on the magic and navy thing...and should both be tragically denied then fear not...I have backup planz....*Begins searching through his archive of characters*
  6. *Points at Jack!* You can't play Rory's navy guy but you can still play a commander of the Navy! >:D

    And we are allowing magic elements! :D just so long as not everyone does it, cause then it would be less cool piratey stuff and more fantasy stuff.

    So do as you will. >:]

  7. Character Name: Commodore Augustus Seagraves
    Gender: Male
    Job/Role: British aristocrat, Commodore of the Western Indies
    General Appearance:Never seen without his uniform on in public, he is the very ideal of a gentleman in British Society.
    Current Goal/Purpose: To make the seas safe for merchants in the colonies.
    General Personality: A firm believer in naval tactics, he refuses to treat pirate as formal opponents because of their thug like nature. His father had been killing in one such raid many years before hand and personally seeing this with his own two eyes as a midshipmen, he has formed an increased dislike of anyone that claims to steal simply because they can. To him, they are all cowards and should be dealt as pests.

    General History: Born in Liverpool, Seagraves was raised in a wealthy family. At the age of 12, he started his lifelong career as the lowest grade officer, a midshipmen. Through my trials and pains, he made his way to the top in his current position. There was no buying of this rank, since that was the rule of thumb for the Dukes in the Army. He prides himself on this very issue. For 20 years, he had been involved in politics around Virginia and has gained much land and honor.
  8. Lilith gently nuzzle Diane, "Take us home Diane. And stop obsessing. You are close to Anya in your own way." She continue to soothe the seething angel.

    Diane glare at Aeleosir angrily as she lead them to her house, taking a series of escalator and a few street, they reach a three floor condo on a hill with a nice view of the city.
  9. You have my aplologies. I have been...indisposed recently. I am Aleksandr, your Quartermaster.

    Character Name: Aleksandr Verrader

    Gender: Male

    Job/Role: Quartermaster of the pirate vessel Sea Raven

    Age: 29

    General Appearance: Aleksandr is a tall, broad-shouldered Slav. Nearly tall enough to reach the yardarm of Sea Raven's mailsail unassisted, he towers well above the rest of the crew. Unwilling to bother with cutting his unruly black hair, he instead gathers it in a low ponytail. He wears a trio of silver rings in his left ear and two in his right - the seaman's traditional source of emergency income.

    Current Goal/Purpose: Live hard, enjoy life, and kill some Deutsche bastards.

    General Personality: Aleksandr is generally fairly easygoing, but when he states that something is so, he doesn't suffer disagreement lightly. That said, he is usually fairly easy to get along with.

    General History: Aleksandr began his career as a sailor when he was press-ganged into the German navy. The first time his ship got in an engagement with pirates, he threw a match into the powder store and jumped out a gun port. His "last name" is a corruption of the German word for "traitor" after the sobriquet "Aleksandr the Traitor." He is Sea Raven's quartermaster in part because nobody is stupid enough to try and take the position away from him, and in part because he simply has no intrest in being Captain; he has all the power and influence he needs controlling the ship's stores.
  10. Hello! I thought I'd give this game a try. *sheepish grin*

    Character Name: Elizabeth de Brinvilliers




    General Appearance:
    Elizabeth is five four, slender with long, black hair and dark brown eyes, a fair complexion darkened slightly by the sun and the sea. She has a scar running across the front of her neck from ear-to-ear from an "unfortunate incident" some years ago. Elizabeth is rather easy to spot. She's the woman running around on deck, barefoot and in a skirt with her satchel slung across her shoulder. It's her doctor's kit. She doesn't take a step out of bed without that baby and woe to anyone who tries to take a peek into it or take it away from her.

    Current Goal/Purpose:
    ... To kill anyone who calls her "Lizzie" or "Liz" or any of those stupid nicknames people like to come up with!

    General Personality:
    Ask a great many of the Sea Raven crew and they'll whisper that Elizabeth is "a daughter of the Sea Devil himself", a woman with a pretty face and a heart of stone. She is ill-tempered, paranoid, has a big mouth, and is easily offended. A simple wrong word can land you with a knife in your belly or worst, like cramps that keep you tossing and turning at night. People are convinced she's a witch because she uses herbs, performs rituals in her little cubicle of a room that doubles as her infirmary, and keeps a one-eyed, mangy fat cat as bad-tempered as she with her nearly all the time.

    Elizabeth will make a big fuss about someone being hurt or endangering him--or her--self but is not the type to just sit back and let you bleed to death (unless you really pissed her off). She cares rather deeply for her crew-mates in a term best described as "tough love" but often stays on deck instead of joining them on solid land unless necessary.

    General History:
    Once upon a time, a girl fell in love with a man and left behind the simple life of a disgraced doctor to spend the rest of her life with him. Unfortunately said man was not as nice a man to others as he was to his wife and one evening, his enemies got the better of him. The man died and his wife supposedly died by his side, as a result of being sliced from ear to ear. In reality, the wife was nursed back to health and escaped half a world away, to fulfill the last wish of a dying man.
  11. instead we'll be treated to the riesbyfe instead for genesis

  12. Howdy dudes and dudettes.

    That's intentional. Love CT...and Wash...and York...and Caboose...and Felix...and Locus...and Donut...and Carolina...pretty much all of them.

  13. Dibs on the all new Wolverine.
  14. Heck yeah! The question is whether I should be Mason or another character. I'm in a bit of a Kingdom Hearts mood. I could be Sora. Or I could go for some Pokémon and be my favorite gym leader ever, Valerie.
  15. "I can't ask demons to hunt other demons. It's like telling them that they can hunt me if I don't suit their fancy. I can't put angels at risk, Diablo could easily influence them and accidents leading them to their fall. I honestly do not want to stand trial to being responsible to that and I really don't want to start a fight with Kunari for using her fallens. My influence can only go so far and being in my position is already delicate to the point of breaking. I can't up and order anyone to do anything."

  16. Ah, so you'd prefer I'd use cosplay pics rather than from like the source material?
  17. Good Afternoon. ^^

    Hmm...or not. I think I will head back to bed. So I guess this be a game day again. So much for getting some rp done on the break. But we hopefully have the weekend. Although I am probably fixing to mess my sleep schedule up more by going back to bed. Well...worse case I suppose if I sleep most of the day then I be up some in the morning to get some rping done tomorrow.
  18. Very true. In that case, I drop the claim to the Commander. Someone else can be him in the future, playable character or simply a NPC.
  19. So, leaked photos of Gem Harvest.

    Gem Harvest (open)
    It's just the gems farming. Pumpkins at that.
  20. To be fair, @Minerva didn't call it good morning.
