Scavenger/Bounty Hunter Spaceship Crew (FULL)
« on: March 07, 2013, 05:31:35 PM »
If there is a game similar to this going on and still needs people, let me know in a PM. I might simply join it rather than set up a whole new crew.

On board of the Aurora is a small crew of people who all have multiple functions. The ship is medium in size, with enough room for a crew of ten under normal circumstances, and most of its space is used as cargo hold. One of the cargo bay is filled with a shuttle. This group would focus on the interaction of the crews, on their scavenging adventure.


I was thinking a crew of 7 people, with an equal number of men and women. If you want to play something else than human, they must at least be humanoid. Racial powers that human don't have are also up for debates. I'd be willing to tag 5 common areas, so 5 different threads (The pilot station, the common areas of the living quarters, the gardens, the engineering, the medical bay) and people wanting 1x1 threads in their private quarters or the holographic room could create their own thread. I'd keep a thread tracker up in the ooc section for those, so that if someone wants to read it, they know where to find it. The reason for splitting threads is very simple. I hate sifting through a bazillion posts, made by 2 very active writer, to find the last post I have to answer to. There would still be a header, which I'll design later to tag posts in the common areas.

I think the crew would be like this (up for debate):
1/1 captain - Siereis
1/1 pilot - Tenshinan
1/1 Medic/Biologist - Aysande
1/1 Engineer - R E ZL
1/1 Weapon specialist - Zenpai
2/2 Misc. crew (muscles, mainly, to help move scavenged cargo) - Chreestafer & MzHide
1/1 AI with a physical form - Maimizzu
(F/M Ratio, assuming that player who haven't stated otherwise will play character of the same gender than their own: 4 female 4 male)


It would always be a 8-way split when a bounty is claimed. One part for each crew member (Save AI), one goes for ship maintenance/food/fuel/AI. People may chose more than one function (i.e. Muscles + Second pilot)


This is an interest thread and I am aware I might have missed some things, so suggestions are welcome. The multiple thread isn't up for debate though. That's one thing I would not change.

Edit: Writing skills required: ability to write at least one solid paragraph, two would be better.

I think I would definately be interested in this. I wouldn't mind playing the humanoid AI. I've been trying to play that role in a few RP's, without success.

Were you thinking of an android 'plugged into' the ship and all?

@MaiMizzu

Ever seen the TV show Andromeda?

The Andromeda Ascendant, the ship in other words, as an AI that controls it's functions, monitors the system, but she also has a completely wireless android form. She's not confined to the ship, and has her own personality with emotions. That's the kind of AI I was thinking about, here. Does it sound like something you wanted to play? It's not set in stones, so if you want it done differently, it's up to you.

@Everyone else
It would help greatly if you could state the gender of the character you intend to play, so that we don't end up with just one male... I'm sure he'd like it, but I don't like to share much ;)

This seems interesting, and I'd be interested in the Engineer position, though I'd like to know more about the "world" of the game.

Is it strictly solar system?  What kind of technology level are we talking about?  How do they get bounty missions?

The first three similar settings that pop into mind would be Firefly, Cowboy Bebop, and Outlaw Star.

Bounties: We can throw ideas in the OOC thread, and majority vote will have it decided. I'd think the AI could get the communication, the captain decides if the crew does it or not?

The two shows I've watched (if you don't count all those startreks from like 4 different series) are Andromeda and Farscape. I could certainly go through Firefly, as it's on Netflix here. I wouldn't limit it to our solar system, definitely not. Hence the comment about the possibility of giving powers to the characters. Mine will most likely have an empathic ability working with everything that lives (plants, people) thus her medic and biology/ecology specialty.

Re Z L has claimed engineer first. Are you interested?

That would leave only the captain spot opened.

Zenpai, if you want to be weapon specialist, it's fine, I'll add it. Given that it's not a combat ship, but a cargo ship, the weapons would not be the main part of it, but it would certainly not venture in the universe unarmed...

As for positions still open, it depends on R L taking the engineer position or not and if Zenpai becomes captain or weapons specialist.

Guys, I just noticed here that Mai and I are the only two female players. Are some of you willing to play females? I'd like to have a number as even as possible.

So it looks like this is filling up fast yet yall also appear to be in the need of females.  I'm interested if you still have slots open but just a few questions:

1) What is the general plot going to be or is it completely freeform?  Either that or what sort of events might one expect in this RP?  If there is a plot, who would be playing the NPCs?
2) This wasn't addressed above so I'll just ask here...sexual activity expected?  Nothing like an orgy I mean (though wouldn't shoot it down either..lol), but is this aimed to be played 'clean'?

Sexual content: Up to players. I'm trying to keep an even ratio so that if people decide to pair off, we are not so unbalanced.

General plot: I'm thinking of going from scenarios to scenarios. Like they hear of a bounty on a stolen cargo, the crew will hunt it down, or they come across a ghost ship etc. As for NPC, I know I will GM some which will be visible through the tags at the beginning of the post, but if someone else want to help with that, I'd be happy too.

@Zen
It looks like with one male dropping and one female joining, you'd be able to play male...

@Chreestafer Probably because I said the ratio was off, but with him dropping and Zen taking a female character, the ratio is off the other way  ??? You want the misc crew spot?
