Dakabn:  Leena "Mechanic" Approved  (Room 1)
Maimizzo: Edie "Pilot" approved (Room 2)
BallBorn: Mac "Security" approved (Room 4)
Nice Texas: Roland approved (Room 5) {assigned Public Relations due to his list of contacts}
                   -note-  Shadow is still inhabitable
Chainsaw: Grant "Captain" approved (Room 3)
D20: Jack "Tech Specialist" approved (Room 10)
                  -note- I suggest you and NiceTexas' character "Roland" be comrads prior to joining the crew as both of you seemed to have pulled a         
                  bank job.  Perhaps you pulled it together?  Just a thought.

Available positions remaining...


Co-pilot
Ship weapons expert
Doctor
Simple hired gun
Chef
Companion
*If you can think of a position not listed feel free to make it your own*

*Note*  I realize that the nature of this site is for adult RP's.  Romantic interests will definitely spice up the story, however if you and another character decide to have an adult interaction I'd ask you do it though instant messaging and simply both post (Intimacy Encounter) when leaving for a private encounter.  However, in that same post both characters will post their return from the encounter to keep up to speed with the normal story even if the personal RP lasts longer than the time to post.

Also, do you guys think we should employ dice rolls for actions or simply state successes or failures?

I think we're all mature enough to incorporate a balance, but I'm cool with dice for when I can't decide.

What I was thinking is we could apply rolling but only use it in extremes.  For instance if we're using a D20, 1-3 is always a failure  28-30 is an extreme success.  Anything in between is the players call and each character gets a +5 in their field of specialty.

Hi. If you still need a doctor, I would love to fill that role.
Just let me know and I will set up a character.

Vero, contact Kaya.  She showed interest in the doctor position from day 1 but she also might be willing to play a companion instead.  Perhaps you 2 can make a compromise.

If we do the rolls thing, then I hope someone can help me along with it. I've never done it, and only dabbled in it here.

I'll have my profile done tonight. Minor edits, I hope. Maybe.

Yeah looks like it'll be tomorrow. Need to work early in the AM. But it'll be done before I start rp'ing. And after it gets approved and all. Just different look and all, minor minor changes to background. I decided that I use the old pic like way to much in RP.

Really looking forward to playing with you all! And flying you around!

Hi Veronica, go ahead and make a doctor. I still have dips on a companion who can kill you with her brain.  ;)

Name: Jessica Shang-Xin

Age: 26, but she looks as if she is just short of 20 - a blessing of her Chinese genes

Sex: female

Home Planet: Sihnon

Appearance: Jessica is a little taller than the usual Chinese woman, she stands 5'7" tall and weighs 105 lbs. This additional height seems to have gone all into her lower limbs, giving her beautiful long legs. She is slender, but she has curves in the right places, and her figure is breathtaking. Seriously, breaths have been taken.

Nothing seems to be out of proportion. Her legs are long and slender (can't stress that enough), her waist is small, giving her a perfect hourglass figure, while she sports a surprisingly impressive cleavage. Her face is cute and pretty and every move of her is full of natural grace.

Her long black hair (sometimes enhanced with brown highlights) falls down to her waist when she wears it openly, and her almond-shaped brown eyes are big and expressive. When she smiles, hearts melt and knees start to wobble. All in all she is a vision of Asian beauty and grace.

Personality: Jess is very friendly, warm, well-mannered and outgoing. She loves to laugh, and she has quite some humor herself. Her laugh is infectious. Jessica likes to be around people, and she likes flirting, which has given her some trouble before.

Her style of clothing also has given her unwanted attention. She has some exhibitionistic tendencies, which can be a good thing in her profession - still, she tends to dress not always properly for the occasion. As far as shoes go, she either wears high heels or goes barefoot, there seems to be no in between for her.

Personal items: Quite a collection of clothing, Indian-style dresses, cholis, saris, long skirts, cheongsams, tube tops and so on. While most of these pieces of clothing are traditional, they have been sexed up.

Some beautiful jewelry.

A bank account and Guild membership.

Weapons: Jess does not carry any visible weapons usually. She does have a power-bow and arrows (with interchangable arrow-heads) in her luggage, but she gets them out only very rarely.

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
She does have hidden weapons though. These are two small throwing knives, dipped in a strong poison that induces sleep quickly. They are hidden under her hair - usually when she feels she needs them for safety.

Character history: Jess was born and raised on Sihnon as the only daughter of Dr. Zheng Shang-Xin and his wife, and she had a very comfortable childhood. It was discovered early that Sora's IQ was quite high, and her proud father made sure that she would get on the fast path to becoming a doctor like himself. She skipped a couple of years in school without that giving her any trouble. Unfortunately for her father, Jessica did not really show any interest in medicine, she was much more into the arts.

Her dad insisted though that she had to learn about medicine anyways, when her busy schedule of singing and dance lessons opened up. He also made sure that his artsy daughter would be able to defend herself, and she learned martial arts. This she actually liked, because it was like a dance to her. She got surprisingly good.

But then something bad happened.

Her parents disappeared from the face of Sihnon. To this day, Jessica does not know what happened. A distant cousin took Jess in, and since she was a retired companion herself, she arranged for her to be taken into a training house. Jessica learned all the skills a companion needed to master, and she finished as one of the best in her class. It seemed she had finally found what she wanted to do with her life.

Once on the job as a registered companion on the core worlds, Jess got quite a few clients. She tended to young men who were to have their first experience with a woman, but she also took on clients who were into stranger things. Roleplays, costumes and other kinky stuff became her speciality, and she often took clients other companions would not choose.

One of those clients was a member of the Triads, and while the session went well and Jess suspected nothing, he got worried about his fetish getting out into the public. So one day, Jess was just walking down the street, when suddenly men appeared, grabbed her and abducted her. She had no time to react at all. She was brought to a remote location, tied up and gagged. They put her on a chair and left. She sat there for hours, absolutely terrified. Then a fight seemed to start outside the door, she heard punches and bodies falling. Her door opened, revealing a man in a black suit. He told her not to worry, then he grabbed her, put her on his broad shoulders and carried her outside.

He freed her from her bonds and brought her to the space port. He didn't say much, but Jess kept asking, until he told her that she was in danger here and that she needed to get away. He did not give a reason, regardless how often Jessica asked. He even threatened to gag her again if she didn't shut up. He seemed nervous though, and the threat felt real.

He stayed with her until she was on board of a ship headed for the rim. He recommended staying away from the core worlds, and that seemed very reasonable to Jess. She is now looking for a ship to travel the border worlds on, at least until the Triad boss cools down - which might take a lifetime.

Goal: Currently Jess just wants to stay under the radar. The guild will keep her financials and whereabouts hidden, as she wished, so basically she just has to stay away from the core. She has also used some of her funds to gather information about her pareants, and most recently she is looking about information about the mystery man who saved her from her captors.

Talents: Seduction (obviously), diplomacy, archery, knife throwing, martial arts, acrobatics (she is quite flexible), dance, singing, and all the other skills learned in the training house.

Job:  Paying passenger / Registered Companion

Do you support the Alliance or not and why? Crime is not good, and the Alliance is against crime, right? Jess had no part in the war, but she has a certain need for order.

Room: Shuttle?

We start about a week after the last person was brought on board.  Who experienced you are is up to you.  But this may be your first time on a Firefly making you need to learn a new avenue of your own trade.

Name: Edie (eed-dee) Thewes

Age: 22

Sex: Female
 
Home Planet: Ezra

Appearance: 5’5” with long dark brown hair. She has blue eyes, her skin is lightly tanned. She often wears form fitting clothing, as to not interfere with whatever work she happens to be doing at that moment. When she’s not ‘on duty’, she wears more feminine clothing, sometimes even dresses. Despite her hard edges, she likes to feel ‘girly’ as she says.


Personality: She often tries to be lighthearted, always seems to have a joke or clever quip at the ready. While she can often seem to not take anything seriously, she is always serious in her work. It’s as she often says ‘just because I make it look easy doesn’t mean it is’.

Personal items: A pretty basic handgun. Edie also has a pocket knife, it once belonged to her father. She also has quite a few change of clothes, though most of them are more towards ‘work’ clothes. She also has a small art kit.. pencils, a sketching pad, pens.

Weapons: Bergmann Bayard single action semi-automatic pistol. 10 rounds.


Character history:  She was born on Ezra, but was never really satisfied with her life. Her parents own a very large and prestigious farm, but she knew that wasn’t the life for her. She was always fascinated with anything mechanical, but especially of flight. She built her first engine when she was 10, and used it to power a small glider she built in the next few years.
She left Ezra in the hope she could find her place in life. Her travels (well travel, she only went from Ezra to Whitefall) have brought her to a place she hopes she can perhaps find work. It’s not as easy as she had thought to live on her own.

Goal:  Her goal as of this moment is her own well being. She knows to keep living a fairly good life she’s going to need a job. She’s pretty much had enough of small jobs, going from place to place repairing what needs repaired (within her ability).

Talents:  She is very mechanically inclined, but her real talent is in flight. In the time she’s been scrounging for jobs, she has worked as a pilot for small time shipping companies. But she’s been fired from almost all of them for going to hard on their transport ships. She has experience piloting a vast number of ships, from single person transports to larger cargo carriers.

Job:  Pilot

do you support the Alliance or not and why: She’s rather neutral, to this point it hasn’t vastly effected her. But her parents vocally supported the Alliance, so she would probably be in the opinion that she supports them also. She sees it as being best for everyone.

I think Mac and Edie are going to get on well. Both are Jokers, maby being in cahoots on the same prank or two.
