Edit: 9/23/13 For reference this is still a WIP and if you miss posts, it will be some time for threads to get up. Aiming for the week of this little edit date section, at latest next. Info completion will still be a ways away, but you can work on a sheet or plan with someone. I can gradually island build while events unfold anyways. As for cap, unsure. Guess I will just 'Cap' when I feel I start to get overwhelmed. *Vague Drake is vague.* xD /Edit
C A S T A W A Y SBefore the Crisis
“Welcome aboard.” The Worldview Travel Agency is providing a luxury cruise around the Pacific for a week’s expectation. What is even better, the company orchestrating this event has accumulated even more business from a series of limited winnable tickets sold off like gold to variable companies. What makes these tickets so sought for, is that they provide a free pass to everything during the cruise and to top that off, they even allow for an additional guest to accompany the winner and the guest reaps all the benefits as well.
The tickets are not the only method on the large cruise ship, if one has the money they can partake in similar luxuries, no matter how small they may be. Regardless, the company is always lively, various parties happen along the vessel both day and night. Distant lands and an never ending blue oasis provide plenty of sights outside of the cruise; should one ever get bored of the scenery within the ship.
Within the first few days, everything had been going fine. Unknowingly amongst many of the passengers, the Captain had been receiving storm warning signals over his radio and blatantly decided to ignore it, under the impression that his vessel was no where near the incidents. Unfortunately, as luck would have it, one night a severe thunderstorm hit within the Pacific. This incident alone stirred chaos through the ship from the panic of a possibility of sinking. Those that fathomed such an event were not far off, it was inevitable.
Those who survived the ordeal now find themselves washed ashore upon an uncharted island with little to none of their former provisions. The ship no where in sight, likely to have sunken to the bottom of the ocean’s floor. Now the remaining survivors must make the best of their current situation. How they live their current lives upon the island till help arrives is up to them.
What they do not know is that….. Help is never coming.
- Images will be realistic and tasteful, no illustrations and no nudity.(Unless linked and noted with not work safe disclaimer)
-A three paragraph minimum is expected in posting. POV, Third Person.
-Respect fellow writers Ons and Offs when participating with them in game.
-No killing off people's characters without their permission, I could care less about NPCs.
-Please avoid powerplaying unless you have that partner's permission, I know this will be in the NC section, but there are limits.
-Please also avoid any Godliness or Metagaming
- Follow all Site Rules
Please do not make me report you for violating any.
- I do not expect you to have taken The Oath of Drake
as I never taken it. Such would be hypocrisy in itself.
-This Roleplay will be opened to all genders and sexualities and there may be incest and/or
interracial scenes. If either bothers you, don't apply or simply don't read that content.
-Anything fitting under 'Extreme' will not be allowed here. As much as I enjoy some of that from time to time, I am 'taming' this game just slightly.
-Activity in posting is on a weekly expectation. I know life events happen, and I am not one to pester people with PMs in posting. I am not going to babysit your tardiness and if it is brought to my attention that you abandoned your fellow writers for other games, your character will be written off and the slot will be available for someone else to come along. Keep that in mind, if this disturbs you, do not join.
-I have zero tolerance for out of character drama. You have a problem with someone, try to work it out with them. Do not go about causing a scene. This is not to be confused with IC conflict,/drama. Conflict IC = Fine. Conflict OOC = Angry Drake.
-I have the right to add onto this as I see fit or if I missed anything else to address.
I. Why you no post info?
Because I am tired and lazy. And I like to tease. Really, what more you want from me, there is a picture there? ;\
II. What is expectation of info to game?
Likely within the week.
III. Completion? ^_^
Luckily sometime between this month and next.
IV. How come?
A. I generally have two hours after work before sleep. Graveyard shift.
B. GTA 5 will mostly likely be out and that will tie me up some.
C. Whatever comes about with other games I have going/involved within.
D. My weekends are wild cards.
V. Weren’t you working on another game?
As a matter of fact, I am. ^_^
VI. So you stopped?
Paused is the better term. This is a quicker side project I decided to work upon. Main being, I want to get a feel of GM-ing a likely smaller group, before aiming towards anything grand in size. Therefore I would prefer questions to stay on this one.
VII. So what is this game about?
See title and picture and put two and two together and you will get a general basic outline, but there will be more to it than that.
VIII. Such as?
Whatever I decide to write when that time comes. ;\
IX. Who is this game opened to?
Everyone, but: Drama-llamas, Mary/Gary Sues, Godmoders, power-players, elitists, and anyone that struggles to write a minimum of three paragraphs. Also if you are someone who can’t distinguish the difference between in character and out of character, you probably shouldn’t be a part of this game, period. This list will change more than likely when I figure out what type of people I will be denying/limiting from this game.
X. Are you taking on CO-GMs?
Yes and no. Please reframe from asking me, chances are if I don’t know you, haven’t written with you for long, or never RP with you to begin with, I won’t let you GM with me. This game is also going to be fairly small(intending here,) so I really doubt I will need any help GM-ing. Who knows, when the time comes and when this sets off, I will contact those that I believe are trustworthy enough for that privilege.
XI. Will there be reserved spots?
No. This is not a first come, first serve. When things are put into context and all is created, I will sort through templates. Please do not go about sending me a template now. Like, there is literally no information, so it will be a waste of both of our time, especially if you will end up rewriting everything. Best approach, if you are interested and feel that you will fit in, is just to find a playby and save it and hope no one picks it. If at most, pick two or three images for possible playby. Also, all images will be realistic and tasteful, no illustrations and no nudity.
XII. Can we plot amongst ourselves?
When the game is finally made, yes. For now, I would prefer you avoid it as the information, when it becomes available, may override whatever plotting you were doing and make it completely pointless. Then you would have only trolled yourself for getting overexcited and jumping the gun.
XIII. Why Roman numbers?
Cause it is cool, duh.
XIV. So this has something to do with Rome?
I lol at this. xD
XV. Can I PM you?
If it involves any questions involving plot/story/whatever of the game, then no. This is a WIP and interest hooker. Ha, hooker. But this will definitely get created within time. xD
