By creating a bi character who is sub and is taken by a jealous man!



I made her bisexual and unmarried for you and Zillah. And there might be a few people that I get to know better during the game. So I actually wasn't mean, I was being generous ;)  The possessive part will be fun between Nim and I xD

Good thought, Chrystal - I've updated the template accordingly. The OOC Thread (which I'm currently writing) will also feature the updated template, and feature guidelines for how pictures should be formatted in all game posts.

And the dome-shaped "flapper hat" is a cloche hat. :)

LOL I read that as 'douche' hat as the page loaded my reply. I sat here and thought 'and yet so many wear those invisibly these days!' lol. It just happened to catch my eye as the page flipped xD

I saw a picture of my grandmother from the 30's wearing the 20's styles, I can't remember if she had a hat on or not, I don't believe she did, but I remember thinking 'Damn. She looks like a drag queen with that strong jaw. Bad angle!'

Oh, there's at least two dozen trimmers aboard the Mystic, if not more. But he can certainly be a part of that crew.

Here's the job description of a trimmer.

Looking forward to seeing the revised sheet when it's completed.

Hi zenpal,

This, unfortunately, is going to need some significant revisions. A first officer would be expected to behave like perfect gentlemen while at sea and on duty - perhaps he could be a womanizer while in port, but not while aboard the Mystic. Considering how high profile the maiden voyage of the Mystic is as well, the crew selected would've been one expected to behave beyond reproach. You make him sound like he's planning on having sec with every woman in First Class - perhaps he could get away with seducing a naive, beautiful lady, but a First Officer trying to sleep with lots of women would get tossed in the brig by the Captain without a moment's hesitation.

Also, he's accepted the rather prestigious position of First Officer aboard what's to be the flagship of the White Star Line ... and he's going to retire after the first voyage?? That really doesn't make sense.

And I'm not understanding the part where he's spent his whole life at sea, but retired from the Royal Navy nearly 10 years ago. What's he been doing in that time? Has he been working aboard other ocean liners? Freight ships? Where?

I can't accept this character the way it is. He either needs significant personality and background changes  if he's to be an officer, or he most likely needs to be a passenger if you wish to retain parts of the basic concept. I'm very sorry, but the way the character is right now, I can't approve it.

At the risk of seeming incredibly nitpicky... my character's surname is fforbes-Hamilton (two small case /f/s). It's one of those English eccentricities - anybody interested can learn more about them here;D

Put simply, that's not going to happen, and is even less plausible than your initial concept.

As noted in the first post of this thread, the Mystic is owned by the White Star Line, which has a Board of Directors. This is the part of the RP that's based in historical fact. Having him be an "owner's son" is simply out of the question.

If you're serious about submitting a workable character concept for approval in this RP, please look over the feedback that's already been provided to you, as well as some of the characters that have already been approved. I'm trying to be somewhat flexible in allowing a variety of character concepts, but all concepts need to at least be plausible within the framework of the provided game guidelines. Unfortunately, the ideas you've provided so far don't meet that standard.

In case anybody else is an obsessive categorizer, I count:

6 M-hetero   
1 M-homo     
1 M-bi   
       
6 F-hetero
2 F-homo
3 F-bi

Just taking the values from Branwen's chart.
