Hey Rel and Nubian.
I'm running the Captain of the airship that is currently in game. We do have several vacancies in the crew if you're looking for a character role and a bunch of friendly and interesting characters to interact with.
If I can help you or you want to ask any questions please do so here or drop me a PM.

I think I may just do that! I've been running through so many pretty steampunk pictures and it's giving me so many plot bunnies!

Well we need an armourer or a quartermaster for sure. There's a possible role for a mystic or medium, but it would have to be the right character to be honest. The Captain is a bit sceptical about that sort of stuff. Nurse or surgeon's assistant, rigger and general crew members are all available too. If you have an idea in particular that I haven't mentioned and want to discuss it just drop me a PM or message me here. If I can accommodate your character or characters on the Comet I would love to do so.

I'm very interested. Is the game humans only? My pirate, Shane, is a catwoman.

As far as I know Machete, and Madame Professor can correct me if I'm wrong, it's a steampunk setting and human or human in appearance only. We do have a living doll, but she appears to be and acts as though she is a human.

From my talks with Crash, that's not strictly true, Skyre. :) The idea was that there's be no proper "animal people," but due to the nature of Aether experiments, there are ways to justify having a character like that. That's something we could hash out with Madame.

Always happy to be corrected if my information is inaccurate. Thanks Karma.

My original concepts for the game was their could be someone with animal DNA as an experiment, but as all things I wanted this to be linked to aether and steam.  No anthros or anime style animal-human hybrids.  It would have to be a subtle thing more than an overt thing.

Madame Professor is the deciding factor in this of course, but that was my original intent.

I am so terribly sorry for the delay, Machete!!

As far as a catwoman is concerned, I am very interested in keeping with as close to Crash's original intent as possible.

If her enhancements are subtle and can fit into the setting, how she came about and the like work with the world, it shouldn't be a problem. Aether makes many things possible. :-)

Any one need a 'cabin boy' that is really a very effective female thief type?

If he was on an airship Booms would already be asking you to be his 'lab assistant'. Since he's not, and his last lab just blew up, he's forced to just hope he runs into you. (Important Tip: don't drink or otherwise ingest anything you get from the alchemist without finding out what it is first!!! ;))

We are still looking for players! We have a whole second ship that can be filled as well as openings on the existing ship and citizens of San Francisco. The sky's the limit with Sky Pirates! ;D

Offline Asher

I was interested in making a Gunner. Are there any ships looking for one?

Hi Asher. There's only one ship at present which is captained by one of my characters. Madame runs the game and I have no direct influence beyond saying whether or not a character is one that the Captain will accept into his crew or not. If you have any questions or a particular concept in mind do feel free to chat with myself or Madame about it. I can think of at least three roles on a ship that could fall under the title of Gunner. As far as I can recall none of them are directly filled at the moment.

You can always start a different ship too.  I am sure you can find a place in the game Asher.

The world is your oyster. You could work with Skyre and see what's still available on his ship. You could make your own. You could even make a pirate looking for a home, or not a pirate at all. We will be working on updating the active character list after the holidays, but if you have an idea, you are welcome to post it here.

Asher was thinking of a Gunner. I think Skyre mentioned a ways back he is looking for a Rigger and some general crew members, so speaking with them would be a good starting point. Did you have a general idea in mind already?

Umm...
Rigger, grease monkey, Gunner, general crew members including lower ranked officers are all open on the Comet,Holmes. If you have an idea that isn't on my list or have any questions feel free to drop me a message and I'll gladly try to help you find a place if I can.
