Awww.... *hugs*

Why not show her anyway, and we can maybe suggest some things?

I think the issue is one of scale. The characters and setting you're working on here are of a human scale. I drew inspiration for my character from a galactic melting pot scale, where human concerns are assumed to be one small cog in a machine. So if I were to pitch this character, it would rob the human scale of its importance. Her aesthetic would also be at odds with the rest of the characters, both in terms of body shape and character images.

It looks like the game has attracted some great ideas, though. I hope it does well!

However, given that faster-than-light travel is technically impossible anyway,
Weeeeellll, we thought that, but recent science suggests it might be a doable thing!

So, you got room for more people still? This idea hits SO MANY of my buttons, but I don't want to get onto character work if there's not room left. Let me know soon, ladies! I love me some space women!

*shrug* I said "technically"... It's like Douglas Adams said: "People in the higher dimensions are a pretty heathen lot who would all be done away with if anyone could figure out a way of firing missiles at right-angles to reality!" Basically that is what's needed... The ability to move at right-angles to reality. Figure that out and the stars are in your hands!

I'm pretty sure this list is up to date...  so far we have an engineer (me), a gunner, a pilot and a cook...

Crew positions available:
  • Captain
  • First Mate
  • Doctor/Medic
  • Sciencey Type Person

Skipper, first mate, and Geek are certainly open. I think I remember someone saying they were making a medic?

Ada can confirm this.

I'm very interested in being a part of this RP. Seems like there might be 1 or 2 pending submissions, and I don't want to step on anyone's toes as far as roles go, but I'll be brainstorming and probably posting a character profile soon.

First post is up to date with the available roles but there's no harm in doubling up in some areas if you had your heart set on something. All applications have been approved or are not yet submitted. Someone mentioned submitting a Captain, but that's the only ball in the air, so to speak.

Here we go! I'm open to revising her if you feel something's inappropriate for the game or whatever!
 EDIT: Updated her a bit.
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Name: (Captain) Elice Talora
Description: Elice Talora is a tall and muscular woman, with a striking face and well-developed bust. She moves with the simple grace that comes with a mastery of one's body, rarely wasting motion. Her eyes contain a steely determination, some old sorrow, and a great love of life. There is no doubt the twenty-seven Terran-year old captain has seen dark times, and no doubt they affected her, yet still she throws herself at life with a fierce energy.

Elice makes no secret of her firm preference for women, and she finds no shame in utilizing her confident charisma in search of bedmates. That is not to say she is wantonly promiscuous! But if a woman meets her standards, she's  far from slow to share her body.

Furthermore, her extensive military experience has left her reluctant to choose violence as the first option. Elice has seen and caused too much death and pain in her time; her latest career is an attempt to move away from that. If she absolutely has to throw a punch, then so be it, but the less combat a job takes the better. Indeed, she will try most other means of  recourse before joining a fight, sometimes at great risk.
Specialty: Tactics and Logistics, Close Quarters Combat, Social Charisma, Covert Ops
Home Planet: Elice hails from Kalron II, one of the remarkable three inhabited worlds orbiting its namesake star. All three planets have fair sized populations and strong economies, and they are coordinated under a singe government. In the interests of political fairness, the Kalron Authority is housed on a large station orbiting the star, rather than on any of the worlds.

Kalron is positioned near the edge of "civilized" space, dangerously close to several of the so-called "neobarbarian" empires. Combined with the system's material wealth and population, Kalron makes a tempting target for raiders seeking riches and slaves. Thus, the Authority maintains a strong standing military--in fact, all citizens are required to serve a term of duty upon coming of age, and thereafter remain in reserves. Not everyone finds themselves in actual combat during this time, but the raids are frequent enough that many must put their lives on the line.
Reason for Leaving Home: Elice murdered the corrupt official responsible for her fiancee's death. She is not welcome in Kalron.
Reason You Find Yourself on a Smuggling Ship: She spent most of her time back home as a soldier operating in clandestine scouting and strike missions against Kalron's enemies. Those skills only lend themselves to so many careers, and mercenary work led to smuggling.
Further Background Information: Elice Talora was a decorated, as much as any covert operations specialist can be, soldier in the Kalron Authority military. Her parents were respected engineers, and her childhood was pleasant. During her compulsory military service, however, they were killed during the infamous pirate raid  on the Lightbringer research station. Grief turned to anger, and she readily reenlisted when her term ended. 

During her half-decade with the Kalron Defense Corps, Elice participated in and later lead numerous defensive and offensive operations against bandits and slavers in the region, usually with minimal loss of friendly life. She established a serious romantic relationship with a fellow officer, and in general life was working out. Until, that is, the Jorgun Debacle.

The Jorgun Armada, a savage group of pirates and bandits based in the uncivilized wilds, had long caused great difficulty for the Kalron Authority. Thus it was decided to launch swift, devastating assault against the Armada's leaders and cripple the beast. Unfortunately, the Jorgun somehow learned of the plans, and so when Elice and the other commando officers, including her fiancee, began their attack, they were met with heavy resistance. Among the dead were most of Elice's team and her lover.

Distraught, Elice sought to learn how the plans had leaked, only to be entirely shut down by her superiors and the Authority officials. What little evidence she did gather suggested the disaster may have been intentional, devised by a particular leader to strengthen his own power. In rage and grief, she gathered a team of survivors and brought vengeance upon him, then escaped the system on a stolen freighter.
Warrants for your arrest (optional):The murder of a high-ranking Kalron Authority administrator
Criminal Background (optional): Some of the military actions she undertook for the Kalron Authority were... less than legal, and she's established a career as a smuggler and general soldier-for-hire.
I'm really good at: Sex, close range combat, dealing with people, planning and adapting plans on the fly, reacting quickly, commando-type activity
I'm really bad at: Keeping my temper when faced with corrupt and self-centered authority, driving/piloting in a sane manner, cooking, not jumping straight into situations. I also have serious hangups regarding violence relating to my past.
My favorite place: Tied between two: the gym and my bed, assuming there's another women with me in the latter.
The person I miss most: My fiancee, perished by the whims of a politician
The person I admire most: My mentor, Khalina Vorst, a better soldier than I could ever have been.
O/Os:Here they be!

I'm seriously hoping this is going to end up with the smut being mostly orgies in the Captain's cabin rather than pairing up and being monogamous...? So if that sexy butch skipper were to order Mimi to tease Rey, our poor, timid engineer would have no choice but to comply...

I rather like the sound of that, Chrystal! Depending on how kinky things get, I wouldn't mind having the Captain relax occasionally by letting someone else have control in the bedroom, at least sometimes, 'cause she's in charge the rest of the time, but that's not necessary by any means!

I deeeefinitely would  prefer less monogamy for this, looking at the characters!

A thief who needs a ride outta dodge.

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide

Name: Yay Seriman

Description: 1.1283 Metopian years old (28 in Earth Standard), Yay stands at a tall 5'9" (175cm) and weighs 137lbs (62kg). Her body is toned and strong from her training regime yet she is able to move with grace and poise when needed to. One of her most prominent features is her flaming red hair which she always has on prominent display but the thing which everybody notices first is the veil. No one really knows why Yay always wears the black veil which covers her face and it isn't something she talks about. Amongst the criminal underworld, there is a rumour that all of the people who have seen under the veil are no longer alive. Yay doesn't comment on the rumours nor does she show her face to anyone.

Specialty: Theft of expensive trinkets; Gymnastics and Climbing.

Home Planet: Dysnomia, a moon orbiting the planet of Metope found in the Perseus Arm of the Milky Way. Whilst Metope is a rich and prosperous planet with many fine cities filled with all the luxuries of modern living, Dysnomia is the precise opposite. It is a backwash moon which was colonised by a group of humans looking to escape from the toil of their lives and start afresh; they dreamed of a utopia. Instead, they scratch a living off of the land and those that can't steal it from those who can.

Reason for Leaving Home: There are a number of reasons which led to Yay running away from her planet of origin. First was her family; she couldn't stand how oppressive they had been during her childhood, dictating her every action and her future. Second, was the climate of almost constant rain. However, the main reason for her leaving was simple; there was absolutely nothing of any worth to steal.

Reason You Find Yourself on a Smuggling Ship: Often finding herself in the middle of a large manhunt, Yay is often in the need of some under the radar transport and has payed for the services of Beauty and her crew to smuggle her - and a large diamond - off of a planet with a particularly high Marine population.

Further Background Information/Criminal Background: Primarily, Yay has operated as a thief for hire. She specialises in acquiring rare and priceless items from private citizens but has occasionally been contracted to take items from museums and Empire maintained institutions. ...The Queen of Olos’ tiara, stolen by Yay. Access codes for every broadcast wavelength in the galaxy, stolen by Yay. The nose hair of the Emperor himself - well...not yet.

Although Yay has never been caught whilst on a job, she does have one active warrant against her for possession of a stolen item. Her thieving isn't confined exclusively to high end, exclusive items; she is more the happy taking the belongings of passers by on the street - some might call it a problem but Yay likes to think of it as a game. Running a contract job is exciting but there's something exhilarating when she can feel a marks breath on her skin and can look them in the eye as she lifts their belongings from right under their nose. To Yay, it's like sex.

She may not have any major warrants but what Yay does have is a reputation. To the authorities and the criminal underworld, she is known as ’The Ghost’; a thief who is capable of removing any item from any room in the galaxy without leaving any sign of having been there in the first place.

Warrants for your arrest (optional): Possession of stolen property.

I'm really good at: Planning, climbing, picking locks and bypassing security, blending into a number of social settings, acting.

I'm really bad at: Being herself, hand to hand combat, shooting, letting herself be vulnerable.

My favorite place: On the job with a massive, expensive rock in her hand and a clean exit route knowing that all of her hard work and planning has payed off. This said, she enjoys the exhiliration when things go a little more unexpectedly - rare though it is - the adrenaline rush is almost addictive.

The person I miss most: Gurgeh, a partner from her past with whom she completed her first few major jobs. He was the first person to really look out for her when she arrived on the Capital after fleeing Dysnomia. Taking her under his wing he taught her the ways of the slums and acted as her mentor as she honed her skills as a thief. He was more of a father to her than her actual father and his death whilst on a job hit her particularly hard.

The person I admire most: Gurgeh.

Posting from other thread, as requested!


Dr. Shay Gold
Name: Dr. Shay Gold
Description: 5' 4", curves for days (especially in the rear), caramel-colored skin, hazel eyes, and short hair that's dark and elaborately styled. 30 Earth-years old. Shay pushes the limits of appropriate attire for a medical professional, and never quite fit in back in a more structured hospital environment. She has a number of piercings and tattoos, and isn't afraid to show them off.
Specialty: "Improvisational medicine," something Shay herself largely made up during her younger years. She's fond of saying that she'll save your life when no other doctor possibly could, and she doesn't want to hear any complaints about what she has to do to get the job done.

Shay's way of doing things can be sloppy and haphazard. Scars are left behind, and limbs are removed with a "better safe than sorry" haste. Cybernetics are better in a lot of ways, right?

She's not a butcher, but she has clear ideas about what needs to be done to save lives, and what's just "cosmetic fluff." In addition, Shay views her use of drugs as just as much of an art as a science. She isn't afraid to test things on herself, and she has learned ways to use drugs for purposes other than their intended design. She can make a limited supply of meds last for three times as long as other doctors, but she's also caused more than her fair share of addictions, adverse reactions, and strange side effects along the way.
Home Planet: Trepalye, a world which had been on the frontier of civilization before a series of decades-long, poorly-fought wars plunged that reason of space into chaos. These days, Trepalye is known as one of the "Lost" worlds, as it no longer has any organized central government and has been ruled by an interchangeable series of bandit gangs and dictators over the past five years.

When Shay was born, Trepalye was still a civilized place. She grew up during its downfall and the slow exodus of most of the populace, and that has profoundly impacted her psychologically.
Reason for Leaving Home: Shay stubbornly refused to leave for a long time, being unwilling to abandon the home of her birth to chaos. She provided medical support for resistance groups after the last organized medical facilities left the world, but finally gave up the fight after seeing a group she had helped rise to power turn into an even worse ruling organization than the one it had supplanted.
Reason You Find Yourself on a Smuggling Ship: With extensive but unorthodox medical training and an independent/stubborn streak that made her a poor fit for most medical or research environments, Shay has been working on the fringes of society since leaving her home three years ago. She has no moral qualms about working with smugglers, as she has a history of supporting even shadier characters.
Further Background Information: Shay has seen the horrors of war first-hand, and it's made her cynical. She's also a creative medical genius who was forced to develop her skills in an extremely challenging environment. She has done many things she isn't proud of, and carries guilt deep inside her that causes her to be guarded about her past.
Warrants/Criminal Background: None as such, given the lawless state of her home world, but Shay has a list of enemies that want her dead longer than she cares to keep track of. Additionally, her background of connections to "freedom fighting" organizations that evolved into cruel dictatorships of their own means she'd distrusted by any civilized world that cares to look into her past.
I'm really good at: Healing injuries with whatever happens to be on-hand. Dispensing drugs to give people what they need (though not always what they want). Keeping cool in impossible stressful situations.
I'm really bad at: Trusting people and taking orders. Shay doesn't believe that anyone knows better than her when it comes to medicine, politics, or human nature.
My favorite place: At the front lines of battle, tending to the wounded...as sick as that sounds. There's nowhere she feels more alive. She freely admits she might have a psychological problem in this regard.
The person I miss most: Shay would never admit it, and would have a dozen better answers prepared if asked, but there's no one she misses as much as Max, her former lover back on her home world. Max was a woman of war, a freedom fighter Shay patched up a dozen times. They had a passionate love affair that made Shay feel more intensely than she ever had before.

Max is still alive, presumably, but their relationship ended badly after Shay finally grew tired of watching the woman she loved slowly turn into a force for evil and cruelty.
The person I admire most: Among the many honorable men and women who died trying to save their doomed world, a man named Mallion stands above the rest in Shay's mind. Mallion had all of Shay's capacity for unorthodox methods and creativity in his work, but he was a politician rather than a doctor. Shay envied him for his ability to rally others, and for his limitless supply of patience. She considered him one of the best hopes for a return to normalcy on her world...and it hurt her deeply when he was killed while she was many miles away, unable to save him.
O/Os: Here!
Drop out policy? If I'm ever holding up the story, I'm perfectly fine with others writing for my character, or having her dropped, or whatever else needs to happen for things to keep moving smoothly.

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Name: Martine "Firebug" Kinetica
Description: A woman of average height and slim build, one would be forgiven for not considering her the most imposing character, until she picks up her Simm & Hammer: Core-tec auto railgun with attached Brightline plasma thrower. The gun is nearly as tall as she is but she knows how to hold it and wields it with practiced ease. Aside from her stature and the gun, her most striking feature is usually her red hair and penetrating grey eyes. She could pass for a party girl in her early 20's, though her attitude would betray this rather quickly

When out of her impact armor, she's usually in simple work-out clothes or a jump suit, though one might catch her dressing up and primping to be a bit more feminine now and then, when the mood strikes her.
Specialty: Putting holes in ships and people, useful gadgets, blowing things up and lighting things on fire
Home Planet: Minerva Colony: The old Minerva Colony is a bustling mining world, even after decades of exploitation. The land rush is over and much of the mining operations have been turned over to the deep core auto-miners. Many of the hab units there have been gentrified and refurbished to hold those that can maintain, manage and service the mining operations, a far cry from their original occupants, the hard scrabble miners that used to travel under ground to mine with their hands. Martine's mother was one of those miners that used to delve deep and never got to retire, dying young as her body gave out while on the job.
Reason for Leaving Home: She wasn't going to die on the same rock that claimed her mother. She wanted to see the stars, so she signed up for the Outer Colony Patrol Corps.
Reason You Find Yourself on a Smuggling Ship: A court martial for use of unnecessary force was enough to end her career in the Outer Colony Patrol Corps, she bounced from a mercenary company, to a small bounty hunting operation, she now seeks the next big score, wanting to put money away to retire so she doesn't have to die, living hand to mouth like her mother.
Further Background Information: Martine really wanted the Outer Colony Patrol Corps to pan out for her. She actually scored pretty well on her entrance exams but was assigned as an artillery specialist attached to an infantry unit, a not very illustrious posting. Her job was two-fold, mand the big guns on the troop transports while they were en route to the planets and planetside, man the big guns to support the infantry. She worked hard and had a bit of naivety about her prospects within the Corps. This led to frustration and disappointment. She spent a tour attached to the Kalron Defense Corps as a supplemental unit but saw little action as tactics shifted and her unit was given the jobs they were least likely to fail at. Still, while in the Kalron system she met some soldiers that made for good training partners, shooting range buddies and drinking buddies. She still keeps in touch with a few of them.

As her duties began to include policing some other colonies, dingy places without much chance for glorious battle, just simple patrols and enforcement, Martine got increasingly disillusioned and wasn't afraid to backhand insurgents and criminals that fell into her custody. She wasn't even doing work she was really trained for. She loved her unit, but not all of her unit loved her back. Her C.O. turned a blind eye to some, but Martine was made an example.
Warrants for your arrest (optional): Outer Colony Union: assault, assaulting an enforcement officer, bribery, arson, enticing a minor to commit robbery
Criminal Background (optional): Convictions for arson, possession of illegal firearms, possession of banned substances, possession of unregistered firearms, possession of illegal criminal tools and enticing a minor to commit crimes. Her record in the Outer Colony Patrol Corps contains multiple citations for drunk and disorderly, one citation for assaulting a superior officer, one citation for improper sexual contact with a civilian and one court martial for use of unnecessary force.
I'm really good at: Putting holes in things, blowing things up and lighting things on fire, telling bad jokes, baking cookies and poker. You need a weapon fixed? You need a safe cracker? I'm your girl.
I'm really bad at: Relationships, looking at the big picture, telling jokes, baking anything but cookies, knowing when not to set things on fire (figuratively and literally), sex (You want me to put what, where? Well, I guess I'll try anything once)
My favorite place: That dirty hab unit I grew up in. I have a lot of good memories of laughing with my friends and fond memories of my mother.
The person I miss most: Kyle Windward. He broke my heart before I signed up for the corps. He was the one that got away. I don't always go for guys, most are idiots, but he had a charm about him that I just couldn't resist. I hear he actually got off Minerva too and went to school to be some kind of business type. I can't picture it, but then again, I'm probably very different too.
The person I admire most: Sgt Maxwell, he taught me all I know about how to treat my weapons and how to be a good soldier. I let him down, I know, but I try to keep in touch, even if we're worlds apart now.
O/Os:Link! My offs list is much shorter than my ons.
If my player drops or can not post for a while please: I put my trust in my Captain and fellow shipmates!

Please PM with feedback and ideas about connections! :)

Emily Hazerd 
Name: Emily Hazerd
Description: Tall with dark hair though she can change her hair colour at will. She likes to wear a lot of black and likes to show off her legs. Her eyes change colour based on her mood going from bright blue when at her happiest to red when she has murder in mind. She can switch out of this function turning them the natural brown of her original eyes. She is usually cheerful and always well mannered and a bit shy around the rest of the crew. She is usually assertive and isn't all that bothered by public nudity or overt open sex act around her.
Specialty: Diplomacy
Home Planet: Orbital colony Aprilius 4. A pleasure colony catering to the desires of the rich and powerful. One of twelve colonies orbiting a dead planet in an unclaimed sector of space far from the prying eyes of the authorities. Any vice imaginable is available for a price and conflicts are resolved by the Negotiators who are equal parts mediator and cyborg hit-woman.
Reason for Leaving Home: Exile and loss of corporate citizenship.
Reason You Find Yourself on a Smuggling Ship: Lack of better options, bounty hunting got boring.
Further Background Information: Emily was one of the best Negotiators on the colony and on the fast track for promotion to a command position. With her sister Ruby she was a force to be reckoned with solving more disputes without violence than any other Negotiator in the sector. Like all women on the colony she had to choose between the leisure or administrative arm of Taurus group, and with her looks the Leisure department wasn't a good fit for her. She was selected for Negotiators possibly thanks to her sister pulling some strings. Her academy training and getting used to her cybernetiics went quickly and was selected for additional training by Denna Kane, made famous by bringing down terrorist cell single handed and thwarting an attack of the colony's life support system.

During a routine patrol a fight broke out between two men over a large sum of money at one of the resorts. Emily and Ruby were sent to diffuse the situation but one of the me struck with military grade cybernetics and held Ruby hostage. Emily broke prrocedure and gunned the man down instead of talking him down first. Unfortunately she had killed the son of a member of the colonies ruling council. The punishment would usually be death or being re-purposed by the leisure department but in view of her record and thanks to testimony from her sister and Denna she was instead exiled. She did a few odd jobs and a brief stint as a bounty hunter before ending up on the Beauty. 
Warrants for your arrest (optional): None
Criminal Background (optional): None (Her Exile was more an internal matter)
I'm really good at: Solving disputes (sometimes creatively), making deals, "entertaining" guests and making friends. Her neural implants give her instant access to her memory from he last twenty-four hours and lie detection system that reads heart-rate micro-expressions and speech patterns but it's effectiveness is limited without access to the colonies data net. It also assess the emotional state of the subject giving her an edge in diplomatic situations. She is fairly good at unarmed combat but without her Negotiator gear and combat cybernetics is reluctant to get into fights.   
I'm really bad at: Flying spacecraft, driving ground vehicles, controlling her anger, cooking keeping her hands to herself. Is uncomfortable with working without her technology.   
My favorite place: Her bed on Aprilius 4 (It was very expensive)
The person I miss most: Her partner and older sister Ruby. Her sister was always the more competent driver and knew how to bring her down from her outbursts quicker than her implants could. 
The person I admire most: Her mentor and and instructor at the academy Denna Kane.

I'm the only one who hasn't used a photo for my character.... :-(

I'll see if I can find one I like that fits.

[edit]

Well that was easier than I thought!

Ada, please will you take a look at my profile again just to let me know if you are okay with that photo? I've put it along side the artwork. Assume the photo is real-world and the artwork is what she would look like when in the ship's network to anyone else jacked in.

Looks fine. I almost used a drawing for mine. :) You may want to see if you could put one picture below the other one, I think it's just a line break between the images.

Actually, to get the pictures how I wanted them I had to fiddle with the formatting a bit, but I got it!
