Adventures of a Space Pirate: Rival Crew (Updated!)
« on: April 30, 2011, 06:35:14 AM »
The crew of the fabled Maltese Falcon is (still) looking for new recruits!




Have you had it up to here with running alongside incompetent smugglers, small time cyberware peddlers, pockmarked hackers whose voices haven't cracked yet, dimwitted thugs, marksmen more likely to mark you than them, pilots who couldn't so much as get away from a 2054 Squad Car, let alone a military cruiser, and coming to the end of the month without a single spare cred to your name?

Then you've come to the right place!  The illustrious Captain Edward Teagan, scourge of the outer rims and legitimate bounty hunter of much renown, is now accepting
applicants for positions upon the infamous Maltese Falcon, the only ship ever to navigate the treacherous Wraith Zone and come out the other side with most of its crew intact! 

Why the sudden openings, you may find yourself asking?  The answer is quite simple!  The much-lauded Captain Teagan recently surveyed the state of his crew and found them wanting, to put it quite lightly.  Coming to the sudden and shocking revelation that he had opted for quantity over quality, he found those among his mighty vessel whose talents could be put to better use elsewhere, such as flipping burgers at the local McMundo's Meat Emporium, and gave them the boot, paving the way for such talented individuals as yourself to take their place!

But of course, the Captain is not the only one you'll be working alongside should you find yourself lucky enough to get in his good graces!  Once you prove yourself a capable, nay, vital element of the Maltese Falcon, you will have the opportunity and honor to meet such individuals as:


"The Loyalist": [TAKEN] This man (Or woman!) has been at the Captain's side for many years now following their simultaneous defection from his last ship, due to the actions of a certain woman whose name will not be mentioned under any circumstances in this datafile or within earshot of Captain Teagan.  Recognizing his obvious skill as both a pilot and a man of worth, they would follow him to the very ends of the Universe without a moment of hesitation!  The Captain would claim it is because he saved them on more than one occasion in a display of erstwhile bravado, but certain rumors suggest they may be harboring quite the unrequited crush on their dashing savior.

The Loyalist is a Jack of All Trades and a master of none, adapting like a chameleon to just about any situation.  Though the sort to wear their emotions on their sleeve, they know the time and the place to be discreet.  A certain member of the crew derogatorily refers to them as "The Groupie" due to their devotion, but a more trustworthy individual you will never find anywhere else in the cosmos.

Speaking of certain members...

"The Weapon's Specialist": [TAKEN] A woman from a world damn near obliterated by war and then overrun by all manner of raider and mutant, the Specialist is more than a little off-kilter.  With a love for artillery and ammunition that borders on the lewd and obscene, her skill with a gun is nearly unmatched and explosions rumble in her wake.  She's generally quite good about not horribly maiming her own crew mates, we assure you.

Hopelessly raunchy and seemingly incapable of taking anything seriously, she often wears thin on the patience of the Loyalist her close friends and allies.  Conversely, she lets most taunts and slights slide off her thick hide like rainwater, hiding painful memories behind an all-too-sunny smile.  The first person to be recruited by the Captain, her loyalty to him is mostly rooted in the fact that he gets her the money and access to all the prettiest and most dangerous new toys credits can buy.  Apparently she has a thing for teasing a certain someone about their crush on a certain man, much to the agitation of the victim in question.


[Examples]: [1] [2]

And who could possibly forget...

"The Cyborg:" [OPEN] A physical powerhouse, veteran of several corporate wars, and someone who has been through hell and back on numerous occasions.  Used to be a mercenary working under the employ of Talos Prosthetics, a member of JoyCorp's medical division.  Their questionable methods during the hostile takeover of Dahlia Pharmaceuticals, including the "recycling" of dead soldiers as mindless combat cyborgs, led to their ultimate dissolution fourteen years ago. Though they managed to keep their hide intact through most of their battles, in the final days they had the unfortunate experience of stepping on a land mine that the surveillance teams had failed to report in their sweep.

Barely alive but with mind intact, Talos decided to use them as a test subject for a near-total body replacement procedure.  The experiment was clearly success, leaving them with more metal than flesh and a body far surpassing the strength of a normal human being.  The trade off was a severely diminished level of sensory input, resulting in a feeling of numbness across most of the body, and heavier weight making it notoriously difficult  to enter buildings whose floors have not been reinforced and impossible to swim without mechanical assistance.

When Talos was shut down by JoyCorp's PR Department, the Cyborg was deemed "Company Property" and put in cold storage.  It wasn't until one decade later that Edward and his crew came upon the abandoned facility, raiding it for supplies and coming upon the robot-popsicle.  Grateful to the man for securing their freedom, they decided to join the crew as a show of good faith.  Tends to be very adamant against working for corporations, which can sometimes put him at odds with the Captain's more open policy when it comes to accepting jobs.


Examples: [1] [2] [3]



And there you have it!  Four legendary figures looking to find someone worthy enough to join their ranks!  We're looking for two or three additional able-bodied men and women to fill such esteemed positions as:

"The Rigger": [TAKEN] The Rigger is a multifaceted role, and one that demands a careful balance of technical know-how and raw innate talent.  To put it simply the Rigger should be a capable hacker, able to crack the Defense Software of enemy vessels, power down security, and remotely operate systems and drones for surveillance purposes.  A man or woman who knows their way around space wreckage would be invaluable, for many old and derelict craft float through the void just waiting to be cracked open!  Should you be accepted, you'll even be granted your very own Scavenger-Class Wreck Hauler, perfect for ripping open dead vessels or seizing enemy craft and incapacitating them with your own particular brand of Attack Software.

[Ship Examples] [1] [2]

"The Alien": [TAKEN] Technically not so much of a role so much as a niche, the Captain wishes it to be known that he is quite open to non-human lifeforms working aboard his ship.  Variety is the spice of life, and there will always be things that a foreign species may be capable of that a human is not, or an alternate viewpoint that a human would never even consider!

[Note]: Send me a PM to get any details you might need on alien races in this setting!

An adrenaline fueled life full of adventure, delicious food, and gorgeous space vixens awaits!  So what are you waiting for?  Pick up your communicator and contact Captain Teagan today!



Think of a role that the good Captain hasn't?  Don't see yourself fitting into any of these positions?  Don't fret!  Applications are always being accepted, and pleasant surprises are always welcome!  Do not hesitate to contact me at any time!



Wykyd has been kind enough to allow me the chance to Captain (And pilot, in this case) a rival crew of pirates and bounty hunters to hound them along the way, each having their own missions and adventures in parallel until their respective stories intersect and conflict begins to brew!  Personalities and personal histories of any and all characters are entirely negotiable.

To save Wykyd some trouble, send the character sheets to me directly.  Any questions you might have can be posed in this thread.  Even if you're not accepted there may just be another role for you elsewhere in the narrative!

-UPDATE-

The game has taken off, but we're still accepting applicants!  Male characters are preferred at this stage, and more information can be found in a post down below.

The Cyborg position has now been filled!  That leaves only the Loyalist or any other possible roles you can cook up and sell me on!  Any details concerning the Loyalist can be altered or expounded upon to whatever level you happen to be comfortable with.

Still searching for someone to take up the role of the Loyalist!  Shoot me a message if you have any interest in filling their shoes, or if you have any ideas for changes to the character that would make them more palatable to you.

And The Loyalist has been snatched up at last!  I'm still waiting on a sheet or two from some of the interested parties, but I'll be cooking up an OOC thread in the meantime so we can all start brainstorming and introduce ourselves! 

And of course, recruiting for the Maltese Falcon is not closed.  If you can think of a role that I haven't, please feel free to post here or shoot me a message.  I promise I don't bite!  At least, not unless asked to.

A bit of a chance in plans!  We may just still have room for the Cyborg position of the crew!  Who wants to play as several hundred pounds of raw destructive power alongside some of the flashiest daredevils ever to fly through the Black?  Apply today and get a complementary bumper sticker for your new tin can!

Hello,

Are you accepting characters besides the Cyborg? Or considering them at least?

I was thinking perhaps you could use a character who is adept at getting intelligence and scrounging up supplies. The smooth-talking, roguish type.

Unfortunately, the Captain himself already fills that position aboard the ship.  We also have a Public-Relations former-celebrity in the works as well, so there might be a little too much overlap there.

This looks like it could be a lot of fun. Any chance you're looking for something along the lines of a ship's Doctor?

A doctor would be a perfect role to take up!  I actually hadn't thought of that--perhaps the good Captain is just too full of himself to even consider the fact that he might get seriously injured! 

I'm going to be gone from Sunday to Tuesday, but feel free to send me any ideas and a sheet when you're ready.

-UPDATE-

It has recently been brought to my attention that the crew of the Maltese Falcon consists entirely of women, save the good Captain Teagan himself!  Now normally I would have absolutely no problems with my dashing space pirate being surrounded by gorgeous buxom lasses, but as legendary as the man may be not even he can possibly satisfy all of them!  Not for want of trying of course, but the last thing you want in the middle of an interstellar voyage is for a catfight to tear a hole straight through the bulkhead.

So it is with consideration for the female libido that I open the pod bay doors to any and all Male Characters!  Hot-shot gamblers, knuckle-dusters, bounty hunters looking for more stable employment, cyborgs, aliens, genetic freaks of nature, studly super models--you name it, we want it!  Probably.  Join now and get a free lapdance from from our resident gunner, Raven!  Just don't tell her I said that.  You're just an application away from being surrounded by gorgeous women and piles of money!  This could be you:


Note: Captain Teagan has no intentions of turning you into a robot.  Probably. 
DT-34 is merely the latest in our line of male companion droids for lonely bachelorettes. 
This is the robot your man could be like, if only you purchased a can of Old S-wait, wrong advertisement.
