This game is turning into a total clam-jam, so I'm going to withdraw my interest. It looks fun though! I wish you all the best of luck!

Well that's too bad :P Usually, the ratio is other way around. Too many guys and too little ladies! But best of luck!

Do we have to have NSFW pictures?  Not sure I have overly many that match.

You don't -have- to have one, no. By all means don't let it stop your character sheet.

Okay, someone ejukate this higgerant Brit... WTF is a "Clam-Jam"?

If you means there are too many women around - which quite honestly is a very offensive way of saying it - then you deserve to be bitch-slapped! If the only gay guy who has expressed interest withdraws that interest before another gay guy comes along, you won't get any gay guys at all.

On the other hand, if you goes to your pals and say "Look there's this really cool game starting, it looks like a lot of fun, but there aren't enough gay guys, how do you feel about joining?" you might possibly end up with the geys outnumbering the straights.

PLEASE NOTE: I am gay too, and find the disproportionately large number of straight characters to be somewhat off-putting, but if we don't get any other gay females I will go out looking for people who might enjoy the story.

@Chrystal: Yes, it's the all-female version of a "Sausage Fest." Apologies if you took offense; I've never heard of somebody be offended by the term 'sausage fest' before.

I shouldn't have to defend my choice. This does sound like an interesting story, but I only have room for so many interesting stories. I come to Elliquiy because I don't have to choose between 'interesting plot' and 'sexual tones'. While yes, it's possible more gay male characters might show up -- there is only room for so many characters. I withdrew my application to allow room for more serious applicants that don't hinge on the possibility that a specific character shows up.

Not to demean your struggle: You can't seriously compare the lack of gay male characters in most group games to the veritable army of bi/homosexual female characters in almost every group game.

If you've got anything further to say to me, put it in a PM. This is hardly the arena for this conversation.

Sorry, hun. I can be a bit outspoken occasionally.

Anyway, my own opinion on having discussions in a recruitment thread is that it keeps it at the top and maybe people will take a look....

So, Rave, what do these centipedes look like?



The centipede is not quite nice
It lives in idleness and vice
It has a hundred legs
It also has a hundred wives
And each of these, if she survives,
Has just a hundred eggs.

And that's the reason if you pick
Up any bolder stone or brick
You nearly always find
A swarm of centipedes revealed
They scatter far across the field
But one remains behind

And you may reckon then, my son,
That not alone that luckless one
Lies pitiful and torn
But millions more of either sex,
One hundred multiplied by X
May never now be born.

I dare say, it will make you sick,
But so does all arithmetic.

The gardener says, I ought to add,
The centipede is not so bad.
He rather likes the brutes.
The Millipede is what he loathes
He uses wiled bucolic oaths
Because it eats his roots.

And every gardener is agreed
That if you see a centipede
Conversing with a Milli-
On one of them you drop a stone,
The other one you leave alone.
I think it's rather silly!

They may be right, but what I say,
Is can one stand around all day
And count the creatures legs?
It has too many anyway,
And any moment it may lay
Another hundred eggs.

So, if I see a thing like this:


I murmur "Without prejudice",
And knock it on the head.
And if I see a thing like that:


I take a brick and squash it flat
In either case it's dead!

Name: Will Conners

Age: 20

Island Role: Explorer

Physical Appearance : A long, thin scar along his back from an animal attack.

Distinguishing Traits: Muscles upon an athletic frame, a warm and inviting smile

History: Will used to play shortstop for his college baseball team, and he loves the thrill of the moment.  Although not quite an adrenaline junkie, he's always had some degree of parkour ability and his time on the island has allowed him to perfect his talents.

He doesn't really like to talk about his past, because he still gets homesick at times.  It's hard to go from a quick pop up thrown to first base to just the quiet ease of the island.  Still, if you can get him to open up, he'll be willing to talk about Pittsburgh and his fond memories of big city living.

When he's not thinking of home, he tends to be fun and great to get along with. 

Sexuality: Heterosexual

Likes: Adrenaline, beauty, learning new things
Dislikes: Boredom, unnecessary cruelty

Strengths: Will is strong, fast and reasonably durable, talented in parkour and familiar with much of the island.
Weaknesses: Boredom has started to kick in, he's started to take a few unnecessary risks as the island starts to feel like second nature.

Personality: While active, he's jovial and having a great time.  When he starts to get bored, however, he can get fairly despondent and homesick.

PLAYER ONS AND OFFS: https://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=102977.0



Changed to Explorer because it fits my initial concept a little better, and Es gave the okay for having two.  Just need to figure out more Likes and Dislikes.

Name: Dillon Richards

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide


[/spoiler]
Age: 36

Island Role: Dragon Hunter

Physical Appearance : Standing a good 6'2, and weighing in at 230lbs, Dillon makes for an imposing figure.  He has a large, well muscled physic, and goes clean shaven as much as possible, preferring the feel of it to having scruff.  Dillon often goes shirtless when he can help it, working on his tan, and often tan's naked on the beach, a little ways from the rest of the groups camp when he has some downtime, preferring not to have any tan lines on his body.   

Distinguishing Traits: What makes your character stand out?

History:   Dillon had two things that made him stand out as he was growing up.  One, being that he was incredibly handsome and athletic, the other being that he had a larger then average penis.  Seeing his strengths early, he decided to become a personal fitness instructor, and part time model until modeling would pay all of his bills.  Dillon managed to live a pretty successful life, and even managed to get several high quality modeling gigs, but never seemed to break through into becoming a real professional model.

As it just so happened, he got a call from Levi's, wanting to star in one of their new Jean's commercials, and Dillon was more then happy for the job.  However, he would have to travel, hence why he got on the ill-fated plane ride that would leave him and the others stranded, and making his dreams of becoming a model all but go up in smoke. 
 

Sexuality: Hetrosexual

Likes: Working out, modelling, reading, writing, learning about people. 
Dislikes: Spiders, centipedes, heights, people who are prudes, and people who take life too seriously.

Strengths: Dillon is extremely fit, and has a great deal of strength and stamina, as well as being very quick and agile.  He has a very good understanding of the human body, nutrition, and health.
Weaknesses: Being reserved, keeping his thoughts to himself, lives for the day and not for tomorrow, Is a bit of a womanizer and flirt, has a hard time sitting still

Personality: Dillon is a very easy going guy, who likes to live life to the fullest.  He thinks people focus too much on the negative aspects of life, and should take time to stop and just enjoy it, as you never know when it is going to end.  Dillon has no problem with work, but usually wants to get it done as soon as possible so he can enjoy the rest of the day as well as workout.

Consider me interested.

I'm working on a caretaker - an R&B starlet that isn't able to do much other than sing and make music, sweet talk people and be stubborn.

However, I haven't found any suitable clothed pictures yet... expect more within the next two - three days.

@AndyZ: You left half the character sheet un-answered. Please complete answering all the required questions  :-)

@Cosmo_ac: Accepted, just fill in your character's distinguishing traits in the character sheet.

@Justme4386: Great! As I said though, one picture is enough for the sheet. The NSFW image is mostly optional.

ennesseffW
Name: Allison Charter

Age: 25

Island Role: Caretaker

Physical Appearance : 5'5 122 lbs. The pictures don't properly outline her bust, Allison is a petite girl, and her breasts are modest in size. In decent shape, despite their size, Allison fills out her clothing well, but she's self conscious of her naked body due to her wide hips and small breasts.

Distinguishing Traits: Allison's bright red hair is as natural as her eye color, and her easily burned skin. Allison is socially awkward, she clearly overthinks everything, her dark eyes seem deep and ever-searching for something that she never talks about. Southern drawl.

History: Allison was nearly finished with a double major degree in library science, and archival science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She hadn't particularly wanted to be a librarian, but at the end of her high school career, a number of tests and career planning programs at come to a conclusive decision. Ms. Charter had always been a reader, and her ability to form scientific essays was unparalleled among her graduating class. She finished on the honor roll without feeling honored in any particular way. Allison's life was dull, she didn't get a lot of enjoyment from music or the arts. Allison only enjoyed films that were historically accurate, and her list of friends was constantly diminishing. A childhood friend, a young man named Damyan had always been there to take her out and get her out of her reclusive ways.

Allison had only one more year of school left, and she had decided to take a vacation. Damyan had joined her, the two of them spent two weeks in New York, entirely platonic. Damyan had intended to finally make his move now. It hadn't gone well, and Allison had ended up reading in her hotel room reading any publication she could get her hands on. The two of them had started to fight, and Allison was giving him the cold shoulder on the plane to the Bahamas. She doesn't remember the crash, but Damyan died, and she nearly went down with him. Instead, a hefty concussion and broken ribs left her struggling for breathe and unconscious in her seat.

Sexuality: Lesbian

Likes: Learning about people's childhood, fruit - unripe or sweet, the effects of alcohol, warm rain, clean blankets
Dislikes: hairy legs (on self), time to think alone, boasting and/or know-it-allness (hyopcritical), passive-aggressiveness (hypocritical), laziness

Strengths: Memory, writing, archiving, athletic, good instincts, fantastic self-less lover
Weaknesses: awkward, annoying, very bad eye-sight (colorblind, severely near-sighted), easily frightened in dangerous situations

Personality: Allison is very kind and supportive to other people, whether they irritate her not. She's good at pouring salt in the wound, and then relieving the pain. Allison is gifted with her words, but she saves those for the people that she truly cares about. Her eyes are often distant, and she speaks ina  confused manner as if she's losing her mind. Allison gets confused inside of her own thoughts sometimes, and she can derail her own ideas completely by accident. She's fantastic at storing information, and archiving it in her mind, but she is terrible at using the information appropriately. She tries to stay quiet in social situations in order to avoid appearing insane.

Allison can be animated when drunk, and much more rude.

@Alias: Character Accepted.

@RedEve: There are plans for further development concerning the story, and that will come with the discovery of what lies within the "Un-explored area" within the map. We'll get to that later in the story, however, after the RP takes off and everyone gets a feel for their character and partner. Big things will come, but in time.

NSFW

Name: Shandy aka Shawnee - born Dana S. Roberts

Age: 25

Island Role: Caretaker

Physical Appearance : Shandy is about 5'6" with long, black hair, small pert breasts and a winning smile that she will flash at anyone. She's never considered herself hot or irresistible, but learned quickly that a flash of skin, a bending at the hips or an extra little swing of her hips could actually create opportunities to open doors. So she is confident of her body and feels little need to hide it.

Distinguishing Traits: Shandy got used to living on the fast lane. Patience is something that doesn't come easily for her. She needs to be moving on, acting, doing something, working towards a goal. Before her big break she worked hard and tireless on breaking in. She's nothing if not persistent - right down to tenacity. Some call her stubborn, but it has been this characteristic that has kept her up and running and climbing the ladder of success. Though she might seem all work and no play, nothing could be further from the truth. Shandy came to like parties - she came to liking being the center of attention, dancing, singing and drinking...

History: Before she crash landed her in the middle of nowhere, Shandy was an up and coming R&B starlet after having been the "quota-black-girl" in a girlie-band. Being the second oldest of six kids Dana took over responsibility early which left her level headed, but at the same time the simple life left her yearning for more... for riches. Her early years in school were very unspectacular with average to poor grades until a music instructor in her high school discovered her voice. With her teacher's conviction and support Dana let herself become the solo artist in her high school choir which let her to get a first taste of the stage... a taste she liked.

With a grant and scholarships for african-american girls Dana started college to become a physical therapist - to appease her dad, who was very particular that she needed to study something substantial... with a future. However with the continued support of some of her former teacher's friends and an unbreakable will to make it big, she scored a place on a five girl pop troupe. She dropped out of college on her senior year for a cross-country tour. Though she came to regret this decision at first when the band broke up halfway across the country, she turned her predicament into her fortune. Trapped in Boston with no money to return home she started waiting tables and as luck would have it was heard singing along to some of the coverbands playing at the joint. Two years later - living under her stage name Shandy - her first solo album is nearing gold status and after paying off her parent's house, she wanted to take the first vacation of her life...

She never learned anything useful in this kind of environment except for cooking, cleaning and looking after her younger siblings - leaving her as a care taker. What little she remembers from her college years isn't enough to qualify her as a Medic, but she will help out if instructed properly.

Sexuality: Bi-curious

Likes: Music, Alcohol, Music, Socializing, Music, Room Service, Music, Dancing... did I mention Music?
Dislikes: Idleness, long winded (pointless) discussions, machos, sitting around, monologues,

Strengths: Music, Dancing, anything that requires endurance and tenacity
Weaknesses: Manual crafts, anything that requires strength and speedy reaction

Personality: Shandy is a person of extremes - she can be cheery, bubbly, with a careless attitude, cheeky humor and always trying to cheer people up. On the other hand she can extremely level headed, logical to the point of being pedantic.

PLAYER ONS AND OFFS: Me's O/O thread.


For those wondering: Any similarities to deceased persons are purely coincidental. I first wrote the bio before searching the net.


One question from my side: I have seen a lot of different paces when it comes to "jumping into the action" and was wondering if this more focused on action or more focused on plot with action being a passtime? On a scale from 1 being all plot and no action to 10 being porn-style all action and no plot, how would you rate this game?

@Justme4386

Character approved, I like the originality  :-)

As for your question, I wouldn't put this game on a scale to begin with because it's not being dictated. Its free-form, so at the end of the day, it comes to majority decision. That being said, the "Unexplored Area" on the map is a catalyst to some heavy plot inclusion, meaning there will be several challenges and a new goal for the survivors besides managing their little society.

Now, I don't plan to initiate that part of the story until half-way through this RP. I suppose if I was forced to rate it, I would say it was 5/5, Half of it is certainly free-form action, where...being blunt, people can pair up and fuck under trees or in the ocean, build sandcastles, whatever fancies their muse. Once all players have experienced that to a degree of satisfaction, I will initiate an event which involves the island explorers running into what lies within the unexplored area: Thus propelling the game into deeper plot than already established. Whether I will reveal what this discovery is going to be OOCly, or leave it as a surprise, I'm yet to decide.

Hopefully that answers your question.

Lol, I've actually never heard of this ever occurring, so as far as the I was concerned she's pretty original. Even if she is based on a sad, real life event there's enough back-story and character development in her history to make her unique, which I love about all character submissions that are approved  :-)
