Whirring Steam, Spinning Gears (Steampunk fun!) EX for stuff >.>
« on: November 18, 2011, 04:46:48 AM »

"Welcome to Canyon Junction!  Population of maybe 5,000 on a good day.  Yup, nice place to live, and... stuff.  Aww hell who am I kidding?  This place sucks.  You know it, I know it.  That's why we're gonna build a steam flyer!  Yup!  Got me one all built and perty.  Just need a crew!  And... well, lots of parts cuz I'm still not done.  But I got most of it!  Hey!  Come back!  Don't walk away!  Aweh... no one wants to escape with me."

Meet Vira




Vira is um... energetic.  And a little strange, even for Canyon Junction.  She wants so badly to build a steam flyer and escape across the Divide and become an air captain.  Trouble is, she's about as scatterbrained as a clock with all its pieces on the floor.  That's why she wants a crew, to join her on the adventure and help her realize the dream.  Or something like that.  Tomorrow she may be back to trying out the best way to launch tomatoes across town.  So what's the word?  You in?  Or will you be watching from the pier, taking bets on how high the flyer gets before catching fire or breaking in two?

You know I'm in, just need time to think of a character.

Would you compare it to Fallout or Borderlands in terms of post-apocalyptic wasteland settings?

Name: Axel
Age:20
Gender:male
Role:Mechanic
Skills: Can build almost anything with enough time. Pretty decent fighter as well thought would prefer to stay out of trouble
Likes/Dislikes: Likes: tools, relaxing, drinking, gambling, having fun, and has a crush on Vira (though he wouldn't tell her straight up) Dislikes: work not being completed, failing, his work being disrespected, useless people, and boredom
Kinks/Limits: Likes putting his tools where they don't belong.
Personality: Fun loving and normally a happy person. Determined and focused when need be. Kind but strong hearted. Always finds a reason to laugh and always expects the best to happen. Will do anything for his friends. Kind of a perv at times but always jokes it off.
Bio: Axels father was a mechanic. Some would say the best Canyon Junction ever had. He taught everything he knew to Axel. But 3 years ago he was killed. His father was hired to make something by some rather shady people within the junction. And it didn't work. So they killed him. Axel fled and hid in a different part of the junction so not to be killed as well. From that day on he vowed that nothing he ever made would fail.

He met Vira here. Her scatterbrained corkiness made Axel smile. Something he hadn't done in a long time. He couldn't help but become drawn to her. When she told him of her dream to be a Airship Captain he wanted to help. He decided he would build the best airship around. Just for her. He couldn't tell her how he felt as to him it was just to weak. And he was happy being with her as they were. For now at least. He just wanted to make her dreams come true. And prove himself to be a better mechanic than his father.

Name: Basiato "Squirrel" Wittner
Age:32
Gender: male
Role: Messenger / Munitions Expert
Skills: Combat and weapons expert, Acrobat, Contortionist
Likes/Dislikes:
Likes: Adrenaline Junkie: He enjoys performing psychotic stunts and thrill seeking. Hedonist: His addictions are not solely limited to his feats of daring, he loves all manner of vices from sex to drugs to alcohol. Gambling. Falling. Dislikes: Times of tedium

Kinks/Limits: He is a lover of beauty in all its forms. He woos most anyone, but is entirely genuine in his affections.

Personality: He lives in the moment, as if he were trying to burn out spectacularly. With a fearlessness that is born of desperation, he is like a shark, always on the move. A uniquely dangerous individual in battle, he is a playful sadist with extremely poor impulse control. Not one for diplomatic issues, he is uniquely suited to aerial combat.

Bio: The legend of Wittner began almost twenty years ago, when a younger messenger boy began to carve out a name for himself. Regardless of the danger or the distance, he was always successful in his mission, given the nickname, the man who could outrun death. With his travels ranging far and wide, the mercenary parcel deliverer garnered a reputation for other exploits less savory.

It's said he has left over forty-three children spread in his wake amongst the wastelands, and three corpses for every child. A magpie by nature, he has amassed a collection of bizarre weapons and devices that allow him to survive against impressive odds. If the pay is right, there is no better explorer to have on your side...

Assuming he can keep sober.

Name: Henry Habbilton
[b[Age:[/b] 31
Gender: Male
Role: Tinkerer
Skills: A tendency to dabble with machines, quickly learning how to use them, how they function, and fixing them up...or, that's the idea, at least

Likes/Dislikes: He likes the ladies, easy going people, imaginative adventurers, and the sky. He dislikes broody types, serious sorts, conservative clothing on a woman and anyone who adventures for profit.

Kinks/Limits: Nothing out of the ordinary

Personality: Henry is absolutely terrible at censoring himself. He speaks his mind often, though fortunately his mind is often on happy things. He shows no hostility towards others unless they are willing to hurt others for their own gain. He's a lecher, but harmless.

Bio: Henry's father was a mechanic and his mother was a singer. This resulted in a very confused life, where he was torn between entertaining people and making them happy and working with machines. As he grew up, however, he was too foul-mouthed and crude to entertain and he was too clumsy and short of attention span to be a mechanic.

The only thing Henry was good at was getting into trouble. Whether he was out tipping the live stock over or falling into deep unexplored caves, Henry was always up to no good and often enough dragging others along with him. It came to the point that he was kicked from his home, which was fine by him. He wished his parents a good-bye and went off into the wilderness, where he's stumbled upon so many new locations, tried out machines both ancient and new, and even fixed some up (on occasion). He tends to have better luck fixing and repairing weapons, but he'd prefer to avoid that sort of profession as it attracts unsavory sorts.

A few years ago he arrived at Canyon Junction and has been living there since. Mostly trying to figure out where to go from there, he makes some money with bits of tinkering, weapons repair and other such small tasks. It doesn't make much, but pays the bills. It also pays for the occasional brothel visit, though he never has enough to afford the younger, high quality ladies.



(Sorry the sketch is of low quality. I wanted to make this character myself, and my scanner is too old to work with Windows 7. A photo was the least troublesome way to get it onto my computer).

My mentality is he's not really a mechanic. He doesn't really figure out how things work, just twists a few screws and sees what happens. He's more useful for learning how to control machinery, so if you stumble upon a fallen aircraft in the wilderness he'll be able to pilot it after taking some time with it.

I dont see a problem with it. If Henry can tell me how it works. Be sure I'll make it better Vira. How can I become the greatest mechanic ever without an assistant to try stuff for me. *gives the famous Axel thumbs up and smiles* But maybe you should have another skill as well to be more useful, maybe you are a good navigator or something. That would be great to have. We don't have one of those yet.

The Navigator part works, and I'll adjust that when a character sheet thread is created.

Chef eh? Let me break up this sausage fest for you. (Picture coming up)

Name: Clarice
Age: 28
Gender: Female
Role: Chef ("Ah 'm nodda cook!")
Skills: Could just about hunt down, kill and cook anything. She's hunted down, killed and cooked a rock once, if local folklore is to be believed. She also speak gator, apparantly.

Likes/Dislikes: Likes: food, drink, cooking, hunting, if you have time siddin 'round like dis you could'n helped me in da kitchen! Dislikes: You'na off you ass yet? Ah do declare it to all in da close vicinity, if you dun get in here right now Ah will use mah here cleaver on ya!

Kinks/Limits: "Getting stuffed where it shouldn't, perhaps samplin that dear Vira... Keep it outside mah kitchen tho, or help me gawd!"

Personality: Serious. Very much so. And Southern. Not one dish that doesn't include "cayunne or tabascee" in her recipe-book. She shares her dishes temperament and and spice. Some (more specifically those who have seen one) have likened her to an alligator, lying in wait and waiting for a slip up from her victim, suddenly errupting from the water to drag you down in a fierce death roll. Upon such a vivid description, even those who have no idea what an alligator is could agree that she certainly share its attributes.

Bio: It was not all good and well being born in the bayous in them southern parts of the world. For one they have a habit of sacrificing their first born to the gators. Doesn't make any sense, and perhaps that was what the gator thought as well. It must've, because it didn't eat Clarice. Her parents went down well and good though. Perhaps it just thought she deserved better, or reminded it of those first days as a tiny gator hitching rides in mom's mouth.

To grow up as a gator when you are actually a human can be hard. You certainly lack the jaw muscles to apply the same sort of pressure, but that didn't stop her from trying. She was even wooing a great looking gator over in the lagoon. Her "Dad" knew where to draw the line though. He knew to tell the young girl that she actually wasn't a gator, but a human, like them squishy types in their crazy boats and whatnot.

She decided to try out being a human. She swam to the nearest village, beat up most of its inhabitants in her nude before stealing away with some clothes. It took some time before she realized pants doesn't go on the head, but in the end she got the hang of it. Travelling the human world she learned to cook before she learned to speak, and when she learned to speak a kind of alligator accent still lingered. It didn't take long before she was considered the greatest hunter and chef in the land.

She never knew that one could fly like birds until she came across Vira. Canyon Junction was a strange place, no bayous anywhere around, she wanted to leave as badly as this nut. And if they had to fly to do it, then so be it.

How would you like an excavation or survey scout?  For when you come across "new" places to investigate?  She would be well versed in history, tracking/scouting, and weapons.  Just an idea if you're still looking  ::)
