Oh, tis always has an idea. I would love to play a engineer again, Oreida 'Clang' Wesker was the whole reason I came to E in the first place, but then Dorian's game went down. Personally I think it was too expansive with so many limited players. Not to mention most of the characters were straight females and there was like only two male characters which didn't fit well with some of chicks looking for a romance story of their own.. >.>
So yeah. 5 if there is an agreed love triangle and 6 if everything would be even. [volunteers for a triangle, though] Clang tends to be a 'Man's galpal', whether trying to hook him up with some cutie pie or doing repairs as a smith or engineer, she always gots your back.
But onto the game ideas! -all excited-
Expedition Ship- Recruited by the Sages to locate and retrieve minerals like precious ores and crystals, harvest herbs for apothcaries and healers, find assortments of animals or hunt them for intended purposes to be cattle, clothing, or food. Sailinggreat distances to find other islands and ports and maybe fight off some buccaneers that buried their gold in the same pleateu the crew was trying to find some boar for their client.
I kinda wanted to stay away from the pirate theme, mostly cause all there is to it is hiding around, fighting, and stealing all the time. The expedition ship could have former pirates that rejoined society, and it would also give them a toe hold in expanding their 'search and locate' business into a little under the radar bounty hunting as well. ^_^
Now, I love Arcadia's rich environment, but as we are keeping the setting, more then the game perhaps[?], are we going to open a bit of our own fantasy in it by allowing other races?
