Welcome aboard the Traveler

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Jezibell, Aug 15, 2013.

    Hello and welcome aboard the Traveler! I am your captain, Captain Marshall, and I am going to explain the up and down of being on the crew of the Traveler and what exactly the Traveler is.
    Your jobs on the traveler may vary from washing the poop deck to keeping an eye out for rocks and danger. You must always respect and listen to me, the captain, I will make you walk the plank. You will get three not so good meals a day, its hard to get food in a different time period, especially at sea so don't complain. You will also share a bunk bed with another crew mate, everyone sleeps in a large room together.
    The Traveler is a pirate ship that travels, but it isn't just any pirate ship, its also a time machine. The Traveler is capable of taking us to any point of time, future or past. Something has happened to the controls of the boat leaving all of its crew and captain stuck in the 1600's.
    Now they are trying to survive against other pirates, sea monsters, storms and other dangers out at sea.
    (Roleplay rules)​
    These are the rules of the ship, if you disobey them then of course you will walk the plank!

  2. Questions :): how do travelers get chosen, who decides who becomes a traveler? You see a ship in a harbour and ask for job? And what kind of a ship is it, how many masts and is it a slow cargo ship or more of a speedy one?
    Sorry for so many questions, but I'm interested in this and I want to know for the history part :D
  3. can i apply for a chef position?
  4. Kikinki:Um...I don't know much about like the ship and stuff, it just sounded like a fun idea, but you could message me and help me with that stuff if you wanted so that the roleplay would be more put together and organized. Haha. Sorry I just thought a pirate type roleplay would be fun but I didn't think much about the details...

    Lorchenne: Yea of course!(:
  5. Finally done with this, yay, hope it's okay :)
    Name: Jeanne O'Connor
    Pirate name: Jenny
    Age: 21
    How long have you been aboard the Traveler: 2 years
    Personality: Short tempered and quick to make decisions, but easy to get along with if you ignore the sudden outbursts. Her interest is usually short lived, and her attention tends to wander around, especially in a conversation that doesn't have anything to do with her. Can be a blockhead and stubborn as well a little reckless, especially after getting used living as a pirate. Not really that much into fighting, but easy tempt into one because of her hotheadedness.
    History: Born during the industrial revolution in a relatively large city near the sea she worked along with her siblings in a factory to make a living for their family. The work was numbing, day after day the same work, and she quickly decided to take on any other job offered. Leaving the factory would had forced to do something like selling her body to eat, but she was not up for it, and stayed in the factory. That was, until she saw an interesting ship in the towns harbour. It was a sailing boat, not the new steamboat kind, and she figured that she'd rather not see land ever again than to go back to her numbing work in the factory. So she walked to the ship, asked for a job, and got accepted. After running home to tell the news, none of her family was really surprised that she was leaving, they had always figured she'd rather stow away to America, surprised it took so long for her to do something like that. She left with the ship and started at scrubbing floors, and proceeded to operating the sails and doing miscellaneous jobs. The time travelling part only seemed exciting to her, and she learned to use a sword to pirate amazingly fast considering how long it took her to properly raise a sail without being guided.
    Appearance: Keeps her reddish blond hair short to prevent the wind from blowing to her face. Her eye colour is a mixture of blue and green. She wears typical pirate clothes, a black shirt and a vest, as well as trousers and almost to knee boots. She keeps a pistol and her bit curved sword on her belt made of leather, with a simple buckle.
    Pets: No real pets, but she got friendly with one of the cats on board to keep the rats in check. It was a mutt with brown short hair, and a little notch in the ear from a fight long forgotten.

    History:Fay spent a lot of her life on and near the sea. Her family was rich and owned their own private boat and they would always go sailing, she grew up loving water and wanting to spend her whole life around it. A lot of her life was also spent fighting with her father so when she was 15 she decided to go out on her own an apply for a job on the Traveler. The traveler soon became Fays one true love and she was happy with her life aboard it on the sea. She learned how to use a sword, but she had amazing aim with her pistol so she prefers to use that.

  14. Name: N/A

    Pirate name: Zero

    Age: N/A

    How long have you been aboard the Traveler: 5 years

    Personality: A quiet gentleman with a love for flair and theatrics. He has a tendency to interject when he feels strongly about something, but generally keeps a policy of non-interference as much as he can.

    History: An enigma wrapped in a mystery, no one really knows who this person is, though, he makes for a pretty good distraction and is handy with a blade to boot. In truth, he's a history buff with romantic notions of how historical events takes place, but his time on the ship have proven him wrong many a times. Still, he enjoyed being able to travel to any point in time in the multitudes of the parallel worlds, and had fun, until the Traveler broke down that is. While he knew a little about time machines, they were nowhere near sufficient for the repairs the ship needed. Hoping to weather out the minor setback as he called it, he's still trying to adjust to the life in the 1600s, as he was from the 23rd century, and was used to the many devices that were available at his disposal.

    No one has seen his real face, and he plans on never letting that happen either.

    Appearance (open)

    Pets: None

    Anything Else: He likes to stalk people, and generally pop out of nowhere if he's around and something interested him.

    Why that look (open)
    Because I saw Lelouch lol
  15. Name: Azora Katareena Billowmen
    Pirate name: Zo
    Age: 19
    How long have you been aboard the Traveler: 3 years.
    Personality: She has the light, bubbly persona of a seven year old, always eager to cheer up her fellow crewmates if something seems to be upsetting (or even infuriating) them, taking care of what she can of any problem. Very little makes her angry except, perhaps, embarrassment. Making her cry, on the other hand, is fairly easy, except for Captain Marshall who's anger she has grown used to.
    History: she grew up in a broken household with her father, siblings and wicked stepmother. Being frequently beat and reprimanded for things that could not be helped (such as looking like her birth mother) she lived a rather bitter childhood. It was not until she was 14 that a local boy found and wisked her away. He died shortly after during a plague and was left alone, until she found the Traveler, with her new family aboard.
    Appearance: She has strawberry blonde, shoulder length hair and energetic blue-gray eyes. She often wears thigh-length, breezy dresses for easy mobility, with tight long sleeves so that they don't snag on things as often but also covers her skin. Underneath is a pair of brown leather pants, with short boots that come up just above her ankles. Her only weapon being a long dagger which is attached to a loose sash that is tied around her waist.
    Pet: Tara - A dove gray mouse.
    Anything else: Is completely, totally and utterly scared of dogs.
  16. how are you afraid of dogs....on a ship...with 4 dogs....lol what an interesting crew this is
  17. She just makes sure to stay far, faaaar away from them whenever she can :p Lol.
  18. But my dogs are lovable don't run from them!
  19. No! Dogs are scary! And I quote:

    " Do your job and you stay on the boat, Other wise " he paused as he snapped his fingers and Mishka And Marcus walked slowly towards the man, teeth barring and drooling at the mouth. " You will leave...simple as that "

    That is not very loving D: *now petrified*
  20. ....Good point....but...i mean did you see the adorable circles they did......:I nevermind
