Ever since humanity became capable of sailing long distances, there have been endless reports involving ships that disappear. While experts and scientists are quick to dismiss those as inconsistencies, sinkings, or plain myths, a lot of people believe that there are areas in which ships simply don't come out of. Such reports almost entirely stop mid 18th century, yet the myths hold a place in everybody's hearts still.
Enter Cruise Ship ' Majestic
Majestic is founded by various organizations around the world, with the purpose of shattering these mythical areas ; They succeed. They come back from every single 'mystical' zone unscathed, and successfully manage to dispel their myths over the years.
2013- In celebration of their success, Majestic undergoes major remodelations in order to become the most luxurious cruise ship of all time, equipped with amazing facilities, rooms, food, sports equipment- It rivals the most amazing hotels in the world. Furthermore, for it's opening trip and in good faith, the owners decide to send free invitations to various people around the globe that fill a certain survey, giving them a free trip.
2 weeks into the Cruise, however. . .Everything goes wrong. Majestic's navigation equipment fails by just a small margin, resulting in them having to change their route just a bit. . .Causing it to crash onto one of those 'myth' areas it had busted. . .
For this roleplay, I wish to have two groups of people.
First one : Survivors.
This will be the group that will crash onto the island from the cruise ' Majestic'.
Second one : Natives.
Now, the natives are all english speaking people that are either descendants from the past survivors of past ships that have crashed onto the island, or very old survivors. They have basic, limited technology, though the original survivors weren't completely primitive, so perhaps some of the groups may have developped a bit slightly more advanced forms of clothing/tools/weapons beyond the average primitive tribes.
The island is completely cut off from the outside world. A great many whirlpools form around 1 kilometer away from the shore, making it impossible for people to swim/sail through.
A magnetic field completely disables communications that try to go across it, so only communications already inside the island would work, if they existed of course.
The Island is a beautiful place with both common and exotic flora and fauna. Some plants have special , drug-like effects, some are downright lethal. A great variety of animals that can be hunted/fished for exist as well.
