Awesome I'll figure out how to use it to summon the Kraken...

On another note involving the Roleplay, approximately how large is the island?

Roughly 500 square miles.  Large enough that it'd take an expedition a few days to reach the crash site.

>THe Lifepods

Hah, once everyone gets together, Sarah would've suggested using the more damaged pods for parts, and the better ones for temporary shelter. Looks like you took that idea to it's logical conclusion, in the best way, Linna XD

Not to worry Caela, we haven't been doing any posting sprees or anything. Gotta make sure everyone gets off the ship first, and THEN make sure everyone gets found. Like my unconscious civvie, in her damaged lifepod on the beach XD

Hee I'm glad everyone's having fun so far.  We'll spend the next few days or so landing, exploring the island, dealing with issues like the food supply, and then we'll move into chapter 2.  Chapter 2 will start about a month after the landing, so be prepared for that.  Also I'm going to quickly drop a codex entry about comm buoys for anyone interested.

I hope my post is okay - it makes the assumption that by the time Anton picked up Crow's signal and got to Crow's lifeboat Crow would've left and gone on to Sarah's crashed life boat on the beach.

Scribbles convinced me to make a character to take command, so here goes!  I drug this image out of my archives just because I wanted a very cute command officer who would probably not garner immediate respect and who is a touch inexperienced.



Physical Description
Name: Abigail Bridget Inamura
Age: 24
Gender: Female
Height: 5 ft 6 in
Hair: Ruffled and black
Eyes: Brown
Body Type: Petite
Distinguishing Characteristics: N/A
Chronic/Long Term Diseases: N/A

Service Record
Years of Service: 6 years
Current Rank: Lieutenant
Ship Postings: 2 years on CWS Hawking, 1 year on CWS Titan, 2 years on CWS Europa, 1 year on Winter Dawn
Specialization: Weapons Systems
Ship Division: Command

Psychological Record
Strengths: Quick and cheerful, always willing to get down and dirty
Weaknesses: Petite and not very strong physically, sometimes second guesses herself
Pet Peeves: Sloppy work
Tendencies: Get in other people's way trying to learn more about something
Outlook on Life: Generally cheerful and confident that things will work out
Religion: Christian, Methodist
Family Status: Father - Akira Inamura (deceased), Mother - Laura Inamura (alive), no siblings

Brief Bio: Abigail is a navy brat, having grown up on warships all her life.  Her father, Akira Inamura, was originally an Alliance officer before remaining with Third Fleet when they became Coalition.  He wasn't happy with so many Alliance officers having free-reign and tarnishing the reputation of the Alliance.  Her mother, Laura, was also Third Fleet, and stayed with him.  Together, they raised Abigail and taught her the virtues of a strong navy.  Abigail lost her father when one night, aboard CWS Minute Man, a reactor failure caused an explosion.  The explosion killed most of the engineering staff and the ship was ordered abandoned.  Laura and Abigail were loaded on a lifeboat, but Akira remained behind to conduct the evacuation.  He was still aboard when the anti-matter pods failed.

Abigail continued to live with her mother until she turned 18.  She decided to enlist, and was recruited to become an officer straight away.  She spent two years on CWS Hawkings, a destroyer, learning about weapons.  From there, she progressed from ship ordinance to gunnery, first as one of the turret gunners on the Titan and eventually a posting as the Europa's Kinetic Gunner.  When the Winter Dawn needed a weapon's control officer, she jumped at the chance.

Yes.  In the future, everyone will be very hot, and there will be three girls for every guy.  One girl to play with the guy while the other two play with each other.

What roles are open or in more need of?

I have a character from a dead game that would fit this setting well.



In my setting he was a Air Force Captain, turned commander.

Well, because I intend to lead the group so that I can kinda steer us in certain directions, I can't have you usurping my command *pulls out a gun, shoots dead*

However, if you want to be a shuttle pilot or someone else who is technically outside the standard chain of command for the Winter Dawn, you could do that.  Or maybe a seaman.  We really need people who are engineers or anything non-medical or non-marine.  We've got pretty good numbers on those.

Engineer will work, I'll find a different image for that. Or maybe a logistics/navi officer.

Will read up on the setting more clearly and work on it.

I also admit, I am interested in this because of the show Terra Nova.
