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.
