Strandedhttp://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=151731.0 (Game thread)


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.

(Decided not to allow for any fantastical skills, for now. .Perhaps I may allow for some supernatural abilities to develop as the story progresses. )

Name: Ami Tokito

Age: 25

Gender and Orientation: Female, mostly straight with a slight male lean though inexperienced with either gender for the most part.

Native or Survivor: Survivor

Occupation: Biological Laboratory Technician

Noteworthy Skills: Organization and cleanliness, lab skills, basic electronics knowledge.

Physical description:  Ami is quite a beautiful girl.  She is of Japanese descent though was raised in America.  The girl is rather short, standing at just over 5 feet tall and she has a slender build.  The girl has pretty dark brown eyes and short black hair that reaches down to juts past her shoulders.  Additionally, Ami almost always wears her silver lined glasses, though is capable of managing without them.  She has lovely pale skin and a surprisingly large chest given her slenderness.  Before being stranded, Ami almost always dressed conservatively - preferring a dress or blue jeans over a skirt any day.



Personality:  The best words to describe Ami are shy yet confident.  She rarely enjoys being the center of attention and would much rather be the one working in the background while others do all the talking.  However, despite her shy nature, Ami is not without her confidence.  In her own environment, the girl is quite adept at just about anything she does.  She tends to be book smart, is easy to embarrass in social settings, and gets quiet around new people.  The girl is rather self conscious of her looks and puts a lot of effort into making sure she looks her best as often as possible.  Despite this, her quiet nature often causes her to be overlooked in the dating world and she has rarely been in a romantic relationship.

Brief History: Ami grew up a typical child in suburban America - making the occasional friend in school, going to a decent state college, and getting a job as a lab tech for a small biological research company.  Nothing about her life was extraordinary, something that always seemed to depress her.  When she got the invitation to attend the cruise, the girl was quite eager and willing.  Thinking to herself that it would be a good time to be away from the office and from co-workers, the girl packed her bag full of swimwear and light sun time clothing before getting on board - unaware of what was to come..


Noteworthy items you manage to carry with you onto the Island:  Nothing - Ami was in bed asleep when the ship crashed into the islands.  She rushed out of bed in nothing but her night gown before she was thrown overboard in the confusion and panic.  Aside from the nightgown, the girl has on her underwear (of course), and managed to collect her glasses before being thrown overboard.

Name : Dimitri Livestrong

Age : 21

Gender and Orientation : Male. Straight.

Native or Survivor : Survivor.

Occupation : Studen/EMT-Basic.

Noteworthy skills : Great with computers. Basic medical skills. Martial arts training.Decent at Fishing.

Physical description : Dimitri is of an average height, 5'11. He's fit, and while not too strong looking because he's not too stocky or anything, he's quite toned and actually pretty strong. The young man has dark red hair that spikes up a bit up front, with hazel eyes, and white skin. He always dresses in dark blue jeans with black sketchers shoes with a black belt, and with a bright/strong colored shirt like blue, yellow, red, black. Wears glasses and contacts.

Personality : Dimitri is somewhat shy in social groups. He was never the best talker, though he is quite smart and confident in his abilities, with the exception of his social abilities of course. He's somewhat emotionally scarred by past issues, so he tends to avoid people. Needless to say, not most successful with the ladies.

Brief History : Dimitri grew up all over America and in a couple of foreign countries. He never got to call a single place home for too long, and was quite often the foreigner wherever he lived. Needless to say, making friends wasn't the easiest thing for him.
When he got the cruise invitation however, he decided that it may be tim efor a change, and took it without hesitation. He packs a lot of electronic equipment and some clothes, snacks, and other things into a single, big bag and heads towards the cruise. .

Noteworthy items you manage to carry with you into the island : Everything he brought with him, except for his contacts and other stuff people usually leave in their bathrooms. Swiss army pocket knife. A small case with fishing baits and hooks.

Approved. Sieries :)

When I get few people, I'll make the thread and link it here. Err. .Which section should I use? Play by post light? Or extreme? o-o

(Awesome!  In terms of what room..I guess my own personal pick would be extreme, but it really depends on what you expect to occur in the rp.  Also, in relation to your PM, we should wait for at least a few more people., though then again we could always just start and let people join in as we find them on the beach or whatever.)

Name: Mae

Age: 20

Gender and Orientation: Female. Straight.

Native or Survivor: Native

Occupation: Hunter, next in line to be the tribe's Healer.

Noteworthy Skills (Keep em' realistic.): Expert with a bow and arrow, fairly good at using a throwing spear.

Physical description: Mae only stands at 5'6", but what she lacks in height, she makes up for in athleticism. She has a slender, yet toned body and bronze skin. Her chestnut waves reach her lower back when they aren't in braids, and her eyes are a green that seem to match the forest. On a typical day she wears a leather bandeau top and a cloth skirt. She doesn't always have painted on markings, but sometimes when she hunts she will paint the black line under the eyes to protect her eyes from the sun.
 
Personality: Mae is a headstrong girl, determined to do what she wants. She isn't one to back down from a challenge, or give up easily. However, she is a friendly girl and nice to just about everyone.

Brief History: Mae was born on the island, and so was her family. In fact, her bloodline is some of the oldest survivors that the tribe has record of. Because of this, her father is the tribe's leader, and her mother is the tribe's healer. She can be quite the rebel, often opposing her parents' ideas for her getting married to some of the men in the tribe, which lately has been the topic of discussion more than usual.
Dyami, her brother, is one of the only people that she will listen to and take advice from. When he became her guardian, she wasn't thrilled, but they had always been close and were normally together anyway hunting or exploring the island. Dyami is her rock, and she is grateful to have him around, regardless of his guardianship.

Noteworthy items you manage to carry with you onto the Island: The tribe shares mostly everything they have, but her mother gave her a gold necklace with a heart-shaped pendant on it that has been passed down in the family.


((I hope this is ok, if not, I can change it. Also, if anyone wants to be my sibling or a suitor, feel free to PM me and we can discuss the details.))

Name: Erik "Gekido" Buren

Age: 27

Gender and Orientation: Male, straight

Native or Survivor : Survivor

Occupation: Martial artist

Noteworthy Skills (Keep em' realistic.): Mixed martial arts, staff/spear fighting [staff is some times used in martial arts events, and applying those moves to a spear is easy, given how similar the two weapons are], meditation, cooking.

Physical description: tall at 5'11, he is wiry and somewhat thin (about 200 pounds). He is well known for his carefully maintained beard. Black hair with dark green eyes.

Personality: Mild mannered and calm, some may even go so far as to calm him unflappable. He does not fly off the handle easily, and regards everything with a sort of dispassionate logic.

Brief History: A German man, he got his start with fighting in school brawls, but later on, found a more constructive way to vent his aggression. He was a minor celebrity in the mixed martial arts scene in Germany before he left for the ill-fated cruise.

He once spent several years studying Zen in Japan itself, which is also where his fighting alias comes from (the word means "wrath"). When he came back from Japan, the name was no longer truly fitting, as he had found a way to be at peace with himself, and, according to himself, with the universe.

This did not, however, ever stop him from taking part in the fights that he had come to rely upon as a means of supporting himself.

Noteworthy items you manage to carry with you onto the Island : first aid kit, 3-inch blade ceramic folding knife, Bo, a suit case of spare clothes (including a black gi and mask).

Name: Dyami (dye-A-me)

Age: 23     

Gender and Orientation: Male, straight

Native or Survivor: Native

Occupation:  Guardian

Noteworthy Skills (Keep em' realistic.): Hunting, Dead Reckoning, Knife Fighting, Field-Craft, Expert Survival Skills having lived on the Island his whole life.

 
Physical description: At just over 6’ tall and 225 pounds he cuts an impressive figure in the tribe even before you discover he’s the eldest son of the tribe’s leader and healer.  He has the same green eyes and long locks of chestnut hair of his sister, but keeps it braided down his neck.  However, unlike the lithe figure of the hunter his sister has he has a much more muscular frame.  He typically wears simple leather breaches, vambrace and vest, the wings of the eagle tattoo clearly visible on the back of his shoulders, along with the marque of his station as guardian on his biceps. He is also never seen without his knives.

Personality: Dyami is the son of the chief as such he feels responsible to keep the tribe safe and flourishing.  He feels much like an older brother to all those in the tribe, helping all those who need it whenever he is able.  He is also the son of the healer and brother of the future healer.  With the tribe having a very matriarchal hierarchy he has always saw his dad being over protective of his sister.  Dyami feel’s a strong bond with his sister and wants to protect her even from their parents, often running interference when she gets in one of her rebellious moods.  This leaves him with very little time for himself.  He is ever the Guardian of his tribe, but longs for someone to understand why he does what he does, or at least accept him for it.

Brief History: Dyami was born on the island and given his status, first born of the chief, he was trained as a warrior as soon as he could lift a spear.  As such he learned the many different weapons and fighting styles that have been passed down through the different bloodlines on the island eventually favoring the evasive movement of knife fighting.  His father made him his first knife and charged him with protecting his kid sister.  When he was old enough Dyami made his second knife and pledged the safety of the tribe on the blade.  After proving his devotion to protecting the tribe he was given his final test, branding the tribe symbol on his left arm to represent his commitment to them and a scar from each knife on his right arm to signify his personal devotion to his pledge.  Dyami now keeps the tribe safe and keeps his sister out of harm.  Be it hunting for food, tracking anything or anyone that might want to do the tribe harm, helping dig a garden for an elder in the tribe, or out exploring the island with his sister.

Noteworthy items you manage to carry with you onto the Island:  Being born on the island most everything is shared equally.  Other than the knife given to him by his father and the knife on which he pledged.  Dyami has only one possession he will not part with; a leather necklace with a bone cutout of his namesake, the eagle, given to him by his mother when he was declared guardian.



Side note:  I try and find a picture later today.   Also as I'm writting this I'm wondering if there are outsiders on the island, people the tribe banished, other people who can reach the island, a bad guy if you will.  Just a thought, feel free to shoot it down ^_^

Name: Avelina Kotas

Age: 26

Gender and Orientation:  Female, Straight

Native or Survivor: Survivor

Occupation: Restaurant owner and professional chef

Noteworthy Skills: Cooking, herb identification.

Physical description: With skin the color of creamy caramel and russet waves cascading past her shoulder, Avelina's exotic heritage is hard to miss. She's of average height, standing at about 5'7, and her toned, curvaceous, frame is one she's incredibly proud of. Her eyes match the same deep intense brown as her hair, but if you were to ask her what her favorite part of her body was, she'd answer without hesitation; her legs. They're long, firm, yet shapely with slender ankles and toned calves, and in a pair of killer stilettos, she's surprised if not every man within her radius standing in a puddle of their own drool.

Personality: Some people are quick to mistake Avelina's confidence for arrogance, when Avelina considers herself to be quite compassionate and caring for others, but most people don't get to know her enough before they pass their judgement. For instance, many people don't know that she was... a bit husky in high school and was subject of her fair share of bullying. She's worked hard for her figure, as well as many other aspects in her life, including her career, proving that when she's determined, she won't stop until she gets just what she wants.

Avelina's favorite thing to do is laugh, though she is not always so easily entertained. She doesn't laugh out of pity for someone who tells bad joke, nor will she offer a nervous laugh to ease any awkward tension. She saves it for those pee-your-pants moments, and when she laughs, most people don't miss it. It's rather loud.

Brief History: Her mother left Greece just after Avelina was born, leaving behind an abusive husband and her strict parents, but by no means was Avelina improperly cared for. Her mother had always been her best friend growing up, particularly in the awkward teen years. It didn't help her weight problem that her mother was such a good cook. It was her mother's comfort when she had a bad day at school. But the day she enrolled in culinary school was the day she also promised herself she'd get in shape. No longer could she stand to be the brunt of bad jokes and nasty remarks.

Walking into that classroom the first day of her freshman year was perhaps one of the most satisfying moments in her life. All eyes were on her, but it wasn't negative attention; it had taken her a few moments to realize it at first. Her confidence quickly grew, and she hardly knew what to do with herself, but it wasn't long until she'd landed herself her first boyfriend.

With this same young man she intended to spend the rest of her life with. They graduated college together, and he was there through the stress of opening her own restaurant (inspired by her mother's Greek, home-made cooking). It wasn't long until the two were engaged, and for the honeymoon, there wasn't any question; a Caribbean cruise. And so the big day approached. Invitations went out, the menu planned, flowers ordered, and the dress hanging in her closet. It wasn't until the rehearsal dinner, however, when she found out he was cheating on her with one of the bridesmaids. And so, deciding not to give up the cruise, eager for a temporary escape from her mother's constant concern and her married friends, she packs her suitcase as a single woman, preparing for a trip which hopefully won't remind her of the life she'd looked forward to.

Noteworthy items your character manages to carry with them onto the Island: Her mother's locket fastened securely about her neck, and a knife (she's always prepared to defend herself).
