~This Here's the Story of Our Part of the 'Verse~



It's November, 2518
The Miranda Wave has just been broadcast
How will you be changed?



They say Earth-That-Was got all used up a long time ago. Folks were forced to leave or die, so they headed into the Black. Eventually, they found a small star system of planets and moons just ripe for terra forming, and they began to make them their own. It was the United States and the Chinese that led us out there; so the five Core planets and the government that was formed to run them bear their mark. Ya gotta know both languages t' get by now. The five main planets are the center o' the Anglo Sino Alliance, but eventually the government and those that wanted no part o' it alike moved out into the surrounding systems and colonized more worlds, some lush and green, others nothing more than an empty husk. But, there was some disagreement about who should run 'em, and how.

A few years back there was a war between the Core planets and the rest of the 'Verse. Seemed a few folks didn't wanna be 'unified' under the government's clutches. The Alliance won the war, but their hold over the 'Verse isn't quite complete yet. Both sides thought they were in the right. Both sides did things no one should have t' do, or can be proud of. And both sides harbor resentment, anger and regrets. Those who couldn't stand to live under the new chokehold o' the Alliance moved out further away from the Core t' eke out a livin' on some nameless rock, or carve out a livin' in the Black.

Things out on the border ain't so clean or advanced as they are in the Core. Most of the Rim frontier is a heck o' a lot like the old west on Earth That Was. A mixture of old and new: gunslingers on cattle ranches and the rustlers that want them; horse traders and thieves alike; outlaws and honest folk working and living side by side with new tech and Old World know how. The Core worlds, well, there ya can find anythin' and everythin', from Chinese temples t' high tech towers t' opium dens.

What it all boils down to is this: Spaceships, bullets, high tech and low, English and Chinese slang, rustic towns, high tech cities and bogeymen called Reavers. Don't go lookin' for 'em, don't mess with 'em, don't do anythin' with them or else you end up raped, dead, and eaten with yer skin made into a fancy pair of pants. And if yer really lucky, it'll happen in that order.

Got a ship? Then yer one of the lucky few. Stay one step ahead of the Alliance, and keep it flyin'. If not, do yer best t' find a job that suits you, and keep yer gorram head down.

im thinking old school fire and brimstone pastor. Eye for an eye mentality. Outlaws arnt bad if their doing good idea. He sets about protecting peoples souls as much as bodies. Im using a line from The Patriot to set part of his mentality "A shepard must tend his flock and from time to time...fend off the wolves." He lived on the rim all his life so he grew up in the rough hard towns. Father was millitary (browncoat) stuff like that. He carries 2 revolvers (Mercy and Vengence) Hes actually a very colorful character until stuff gets real...then its game on

Oooo, sounds really cool. Khal and Marcus are both Buddhists, and she was essentially raised in a temple, so that should lead to some interesting conversations ;)

I'm really loving the way all the characters are turning out. I hope you're all as excited as I am to start playing.

Workin on my mechanic still. Planning for a former browncoat who worked the shipyards, has a special feel for machines and feels most at home in an engine room, but knows how to handle himself in a fight. Bit awkward around people who he doesn't understand as well as he does machines, which operate on an orderly, defined manner. Takin russel crowe for face claim.

Between the mix of former Alliance personnel and Independents on the ship it's going to make for some very interesting dinner conversation ;).



We could use some more women on the ship, if anyone's interested in playing a gunhand or a passenger ;)

 This what I have for personality and background so far.

Personality

Milly is fully aware that the only person that truly cares about Milly is Milly.  This simple fact colors her existence.  Yes she has friends and yes she can work within a team, because if people like you they are less likely to turn on you, but that doesn’t mean that if push came to shove she would sacrifice herself for anyone.  She isn’t that stupid.  Better them than me is a pretty good motto for Milly.

As a former farmer’s daughter Milly is used to hard work and doesn’t shy from it.  She doesn’t like laziness in others and expects that they will take care of their business with little grumbling.  There isn’t much about ship life that is as backbreaking and dirty as growing up on a farm.

Milly’s childhood didn’t offer much in the way of education past about a high school level and while she is a pretty little thing she has no concepts of high flatulent manners.  She can swear like a sailor in multiple languages and often does so.  She laughs loud with an occasional snort and likes her drink.  Dainty she is not.
 
History

Milly grew up on a farm on Ezra in the Georgia System.  Like most of the families on Ezra at the time her family was and is farmers.  She has 11 siblings, 6 older and 5 younger who as far as she knows still farm the fields of Ezra scraping out a living from the land.  Milly always wanted more for herself though.  It wasn’t that she shied away from the hard work or didn’t enjoy the sun setting in the fields.  She has mostly good memories of Ezra, but knowing that there were whole other worlds out there with billions of people and experiences waiting to be discovered was something that grabbed ahold of Milly and didn’t let go.  When she was eighteen years old her parents informed her that they had agreed to give Milly’s hand in marriage to one of the other local farmers, a much older scrum of a man with loose ties to the newly arrived Niska, Milly stole a family shotgun, horse and her potential husbands dowry an used them to buy her way on to the first tramp freighter off of Ezra.
 
She didn’t know that the dowry was really a payment to Niska’s new criminal enterprise.  It wasn’t a lot of money, not enough for them to come looking for her, but enough to put Milly on the organizations radar.  Life off planet wasn’t all that Milly imagined and she struggled to find her way.  She was pretty enough to be a companion, but not all that interested in lying on her back all day and frankly didn’t have the manners to cut it anyway.  She was a hard worker though and didn’t mind getting her hands dirty.  Growing up on the farm gave her a broad knowledge of a lot of subjects.  She could take care of animals, patch up injuries, she knew how to handle a shooting iron and could rig field fixes on ground vehicles to make them work in a pinch.  Once on ship she picked up other handy bits and pieces of starship maintenance and was always fine with being simple labor if it meant getting her from one place to another and didn’t ask a lot of question about what kind of job the crew was pulling.
 
Milly hooked up with the Satori a couple of years ago at Lilac.  By then she had picked up enough Mandarin to be considered fluent with a bad accent and knows a bit of Cantonese.  Captain Nyari knows about her issues leaving Ezra, but she has managed to stay under the radar and one step ahead of the cortex tags for the moment.  Milly continues her work as a gun-hand on the Satori and has not real aspiration to lead.  Some of the Captain’s choice of jobs does concern her a bit, not so much for the type of work, but for the fact that she could get tagged with much bigger crimes by association than she can stay ahead of.  So far though the Captain has shown to be as adept at staying ahead of the law as Milly would be on her own and the working relationship has worked out well for the both of them.

~BASICS~


Name:  Dr. Hence Harrison Kinkaid
Aliases:   First Lieutenant Kinkaid; Hennie;
Gender:  Male
Age: 35 years old
Homeworld:   Bellerophon
Affiliation: Independent
Location:  Satori
Position:  Ship's Doctor
Education:  Completed formal education at exclusive finishing school in Bellerophon; B.S. in Organic Chemistry & Molecular Anatomy at Naval Academy at Hera; served as Field Medic aboard Alliance medical frigate and then attended the University of Osiris to complete a Masters degree in Biology and, subsequently, his M.D.  Interned aboard Alliance Capital Class vessel Daring as a combat surgeon.
Cortex Flags:  Dishonorably discharged from military service;  found guilty of depraved heart murder (Murder in the Second Degree) by military tribunal; wanted fugitive.

Height: 6'2
Weight: 170 lbs.
Hair Color:  Black
Eye Color:  Brown
Character Model:  Alejandro Carzo
Orientation:  Heterosexual

~DETAILS~

General Appearance:  Hence has a dominating brown gaze that is both inquisitive and penetrating.  Behind his eyes, there lies a profound intellectual presence.  He has an olive face that is pleasantly gaunt, with high cheekbones, a chiseled chin, a boxer's nose, and thin lips.  His countenance is framed by slicked-back raven hair.  He is broad-shouldered, with thick arms and and long limbs.

Distinguishing Characteristics:  Hence has three distinct circular scars from laser-fire on his back and chest.  He sports a tattoo on his forearm that depicts the sigil of Alliance Naval Marines.  Additionally, he has tattooed 162 names on his back -- men and women he has failed to save on the operating table.

Family:  Cassie Day Kinkaid (Mother, deceased);  Benjamin "Ben" Harrison Kinkaid (Father);  Kenswick Harrison Kinkaid (Younger Brother);  Patricia "Patty" Kinkaid (Younger Sister);

Personality:  Hence is serious, but not too serious.  Depending on his mood, he can be dismissive and mechanical, or he can be caring and empathetic.  He doesn't rattle easily, and is at leisure even when things are falling apart.  However, he appreciates order, and dislikes chaos for the sake of chaos.  He likes the quietness of his medical bay, and can usually be found there, reading, organizing, and having a spot of tea. 

Weaknesses:  Hence can become preoccupied with intellectual challenges, and his focus to resolve these challenges can be used against him when one wishes to get things by him.  Additionally, though he is proficient in the use of firearms, Hence is simply incapable of performing emergency surgery immediately after he has participated in a firefight.  Whether it's nerves or his inability to control his adrenaline, Hence suffers from debilitating shakes after battle.  Finally, though Hence is usually cool as a cucumber, he gets really hot whenever someone moves his things.

Notable Skills:
  • Trauma Surgeon:  Hence is well-versed at performing care under fire, tactical field care, and tactical evaluation care anywhere, at any time; 
  • Medical Doctor:  Hence is highly proficient at diagnosing and treating medical conditions;
  • Laboratory Scientist:  Hence is highly proficient with chemicals;
  • Military Soldier:  Though reluctant, Hence has been trained in basic hand-to-hand combat and ranged combat, as well as military tactics.

Weapons:  Hence carries a field knife, a multi-tool utility knife, a first aid field kit with numerous surgical instruments, and a Taurus Model 608 .357 Mag. Revolver.

History:  Dr. Hence Harrison Kinkaid's got a head on him on account of his parents payin' for his schoolin'.  Ain't no mistake, the Kincaid's of Bellerophon have a lot of money to spend, an' they can afford to send their kids to the best schools 'cross the 'verse.  An' that's just what Hence did.  Now, his family was in all sorts of business, but for good or ill, Hence didn't care for business.  He didn't care for money.  He was a curious kid, turned into an even more curious adult, an' he ended up bein' a cut different from his folks or his siblings.  See, he liked helpin' people.  He thought that by bein' a doctor, he could do jus' that.

So he did what any ambitious young man does when he sets out to become a doctor.  He got his degrees.  He got his experience.  He made the grades, an' he came out near the top of his class.  With a huge war goin' on, it was hard to be a doctor outside of the military, so he chose a side an' stuck to it.  Military life suited him.  An' what's more, the military let him get out from under the thumb of his family.

Now, a few misadventures have been abridged.  Fellow has fought in some hairy battles, an' met some strange denizens, too.  He's fallen in love, he's lost a fair bit, an' he's had some tragic foibles, too. 

It was said that Dr. Kinkaid was a fine military man, and even a better surgeon.  Bullets could be whizzin' overhead, but the good ole' bonesaw was as fine as a lily, patching men up in the mud.  There's a thing about bein' good at your job that no one tells you, though.  If you're good at yer' job, you're gonna get promoted.  And yer' gonna get promoted until you can't get promoted any more.  Same doggone thing happened to Hence.  He rose an' rose, and found himself in a position that nobody in their right mind shoulda' been good at.

See, he found himself working at a top secret government facility, but he wasn't there to fix people up.  No, the Alliance had him doin' other things.  One particular evil son of a bitch named Captain Andrew Jasper--pretty much the guy in charge of the facility--kept orderin' Hence to participate in some of the most godawful experiments on human beings ... while they were still alive.  Pretty soon, it got to be that Hence wanted out.  Kinkaid's a good man, an' so he fixed Captain Jasper real good.  Hence freed the test subjects he could, an' gave the Captain a four inch diameter hole in the back of his head.

Course, no good deed goes unpunished.  A military tribunal charged, tried, and convicted the good doctor with depraved heart murder for Jasper's death.  Some say that the only reason Hence didn't get the death penalty is because his family was wealthy and greased a few palms.  Still, their son was sentenced to 25 years hard time on a backwards moon colony.  Things got rough, though, and the air was a bit thick, meaning that Hence didn't make any friends very quickly, but had no difficulty making enemies.  With a few attempts on his life under his belt, Kinkaid made good his escape, and joined a mercenary freelancer group. 

Kinkaid bounced around a few groups, developin' a reputation as a dependable wound-stitcher.  His group was gettin' a hitch aboard the Satori when he was poached by the captain.  He's served ever since.

His location would be the Satori, and the name of the faceclaim is Alejandro Corzo (I reverse googled your image). There are lots of great pictures of him if you want to add some more in the smaller image locations under the main one ;).

~BASICS~


Name: Millicent “Milly” Carson
Aliases: None
Gender: Female
Age: 23
Homeworld: Ezra (Georgia System)
Affiliation: Neutral
Location: Usually on the Satori
Position: Gun-Hand
Education: High School equivalent, school of hard knocks and farm living
Cortex Flags: None yet but she is on Niska’s criminal organisation’s radar.  See History.

Height: 5’2”
Weight: 100 lbs
Hair Color: Sandy Blonde with lighter highlights
Eye Color: Blue
Character Model: Steamgirl Veron
Orientation: Bisexual (leans heavily towards women)

~DETAILS~

General Appearance: The only thing that is consistent about Milly is her sandy blonde hair and blue eyes.  When working on ship she can be found in beaten up jeans or breaches and work shirts or a set of coveralls.  When on planet she likes to “dress up,” which tends to be a shabby chic sort of look.  She has no real concept high society so her clothing can end up as a mish mosh of things that she thinks looks nice.  Milly doesn’t mind getting dirty in the line of work so when she is working hard she can often be found with smudges of dirty or engine oil or soot depending on what she is working on.

Distinguishing Characteristics: Milly has a tattoo of a musical note in the shape of a heart on her forearm.  Milly does love her bowler hat and will wear it whenever she can.

Family: Milly is the middle daughter of Joshua and Agnes Carson.  She has eleven other siblings, six older and five younger.  Malcom, Delilah, Sarah, Joshua Jr., Buddy, Terrance, (Millicent), Matilda, Agatha, Bart, Carter and Adelaide (in order of birth).

Personality: Milly is fully aware that the only person that truly cares about Milly is Milly.  This simple fact colors her existence.  Yes she has friends and yes she can work within a team, because if people like you they are less likely to turn on you, but that doesn’t mean that if push came to shove she would sacrifice herself for anyone.  She isn’t that stupid.  Better them than me is a pretty good motto for Milly.

As a former farmer’s daughter Milly is used to hard work and doesn’t shy from it.  She doesn’t like laziness in others and expects that they will take care of their business with little grumbling.  There isn’t much about ship life that is as backbreaking and dirty as growing up on a farm.

Milly’s childhood didn’t offer much in the way of education past about a high school level and while she is a pretty little thing she has no concepts of high flatulent manners.  She can swear like a sailor in multiple languages and often does so.  She laughs loud with an occasional snort and likes her drink.  Dainty she is not.

Weaknesses: Milly is a survivor.  As much as she enjoys being a part of that Satori crew, if it came down to her life or theirs she would choose hers every day and twice on Sunday. Milly has no real awareness of etiquette and high society and probably never will.

Notable Skills: Speaks English and Mandarin with some pigeon Cantonese.  Milly is a very good shot, preferring to use her six-shooters or a shotgun. Growing up on the farm exposed her to a lot of skills. She isn’t an expert at any of them, but she can patch up a wound, fit a car, rig all sorts of mechanical thing-a-ma-gigs, cook, take care of animals and grow crops among other skills.  When there isn’t someone that specializes in a skill on the Satori that job often falls to Milly because she can find a way to figure out what needs to be done even if it will only last until they find someone more capable for a permanent fix.  She is also a fine dancer.

Weapons: 2 LaMat revolvers, Winchester Model 1300 - 12 Gauge, Hunting Knives

History: Milly grew up on a farm on Ezra in the Georgia System.  Like most of the families on Ezra at the time her family was and is farmers.  She has 11 siblings, 6 older and 5 younger who as far as she knows still farm the fields of Ezra scraping out a living from the land.  Milly always wanted more for herself though.  It wasn’t that she shied away from the hard work or didn’t enjoy the sun setting in the fields.  She has mostly good memories of Ezra, but knowing that there were whole other worlds out there with billions of people and experiences waiting to be discovered was something that grabbed ahold of Milly and didn’t let go.  When she was eighteen years old her parents informed her that they had agreed to give Milly’s hand in marriage to one of the other local farmers, a much older scrum of a man with loose ties to the newly arrived Niska, Milly stole a family shotgun, horse and her potential husbands dowry an used them to buy her way on to the first tramp freighter off of Ezra.
 
She didn’t know that the dowry was really a payment to Niska’s new criminal enterprise.  It wasn’t a lot of money, not enough for them to come looking for her, but enough to put Milly on the organizations radar.  Life off planet wasn’t all that Milly imagined and she struggled to find her way.  She was pretty enough to be a companion, but not all that interested in lying on her back all day and frankly didn’t have the manners to cut it anyway.  She was a hard worker though and didn’t mind getting her hands dirty.  Growing up on the farm gave her a broad knowledge of a lot of subjects.  She could take care of animals, patch up injuries, she knew how to handle a shooting iron and could rig field fixes on ground vehicles to make them work in a pinch.  Once on ship she picked up other handy bits and pieces of starship maintenance and was always fine with being simple labor if it meant getting her from one place to another and didn’t ask a lot of question about what kind of job the crew was pulling.
 
Milly hooked up with the Satori a couple of years ago at Lilac.  By then she had picked up enough Mandarin to be considered fluent with a bad accent and knows a bit of Cantonese.  Captain Nyari knows about her issues leaving Ezra, but she has managed to stay under the radar and one step ahead of the cortex tags for the moment.  Milly continues her work as a gun-hand on the Satori and has not real aspiration to lead.  Some of the Captain’s choice of jobs does concern her a bit, not so much for the type of work, but for the fact that she could get tagged with much bigger crimes by association than she can stay ahead of.  So far though the Captain has shown to be as adept at staying ahead of the law as Milly would be on her own and the working relationship has worked out well for the both of them.

Likes: Fancy things, fresh raspberries, dancing, drinking, playing cards, Nutty-Oatty Bars
Dislikes: Highfalutin attitudes, people assuming she is stupid or weak, lazy ass people, baseball, anyone associates with Niska and squash.
Hobbies: Dancing, tinkering with stuff, reading bad romance novels, gambling
Fears and Phobias: Being Tortured and Deep Water
Ons and Offs: On’s and Off’s

~BASICS~


Name: Jasper Elkins
Aliases: Shepard Mulcahy
Gender: Male
Age: 26
Homeworld: New Canaan
Affiliation: Officially Neutral but Independent
Location: Satori
Position: Shepard
Education: Basic but was tutored by a Shepard so knows the Catholic Bible and Latin.
Cortex Flags: Nothing major but has been question in many investigations. Only official offense is the assault of an Alliance officer. Only the recording of the officer raping a young girl kept Jasper out of prison as the Alliance swept the whole thing under the rug.

Height: 5 feet 9 inches
Weight: 140 lbs
Hair Color: dark red
Eye Color: light blue
Character Model: Ben Foster
Orientation: Heterosexual

~DETAILS~

General Appearance: Jasper has a farmers build, lean and wiry. He carries himself straight but usually head down looking out of the top of his eyes. He’s watchful and perhaps a bit twitchy. His shaggy short length hair is curly and a scraggly beard accompanies it. When at rest he spreads out with feet up and arms to either side taking up all the room he has thats his. Dresses in classic frontier/Rim garb. Heavy linen shirts, and wool pants are his usual attire along with a wide brimmed hat. His Shepard clothes are Old Earth classic black preacher wear, and all his attire comes with his long brown coat and priestly collar. He only wears the vestments when needed though.  On him at all legal times are his 2 revolvers Mercy and Vengeance in underarm holsters turned for cross draw and at least a pocket bible.

Distinguishing Characteristics: A trio of bullet wound scars in his upper left chest he humorously calls the trinity.

Family: Father died shortly after the war but his mother (Sarah)and older sister (Penny) still live on New Canaan. Penny is set to be married soon.

Personality: Has an old world approach to life. If done wrong he will remember and not one to forgive and forget. Although a Shepard he is not a man of peace. He is a man of justice. Laws of man mean little to him. Theres right and wrong. If you cant tell the difference your probably the one doing wrong. If the law takes care of the issue then great but if not then he will find a way for proper justice to be done. Not a blood thirsty vigilante nor will he try to right every wrong but will interpose if he sees the need. A true and loyal friend if you can get to that level with him. A serious pain in the ass as an enemy. Hard drinking and fun loving but a real worker when the time comes.

Weaknesses: near sighted and refuses to wear glasses because he broke so many. Left arm doesn’t have full range of motion and weaker than right.

Notable Skills: Knows a better than average level about cattle and horses. Rides horses very well as well as small 2 and 4 wheeled off road vehicles. Knows how to reload his own ammo if he has the supplies. Speaks and reads Latin as well as English and Chinese. Decent gun hand. Can repair simple guns and small engines. Decent gambler (breaks even overall)
Weapons: 2 Smith & Wesson Model 629 Performance Center - .44 he alternated ammo between solid rounds for penetration and hollow points. If he knows of the specific kind of trouble about to happen he’ll adjust. A medium, folding pocket knife.

History: Jasper was born on New Canaan to a somewhat well to do family. Of course on New Canaan that just meant they had a farm that wasn’t going under and a few hands to help run it. He grew up learning his lessons from his mother and working to help as best he could. Unlike the richer farms that grew actual crops in the greener areas of the world his family stuck to cattle and horses. The open prairie was not a kind place though. Before Jasper was old enough to have known them he had lost 2 older brothers, one to disease and another in a storm. Being the baby of the family meant that he was suppose to be the one that got to choose what he wanted to do in life. Go off to a university or be a business man. But life doesn’t work that way on the frontier. As it was he grew up fast and hard. Leaning everything he could about the family farm and its workings.

When war came his father didn’t want any part of it but when the Alliance started turning the screws on everyone and he saw the writing on the wall. Jasper wanted to go as well but his father wouldn’t have it. Someone had to stay and run the ranch…nevermind that his mother had been doing just that for years already. A few months later they received word that his father had been lost…not K.I.A. but lost. Jasper now had the reason he needed and took off to find his father. He joined the same unit in hopes of finding out what had happened. What he found was a whirlwind of death and fear and on a good day complete boredom. He had little time to look for his father and even if he had he couldn’t just leave to go chasing.

He found himself in a field hospital with three bullet holes in his chest and the good book on his lap. The local Shepard had taken up visiting the hospital and it was he who brought Jasper a letter from home telling him that somehow his father had found his way back. A few days later word came that the war was over. A day later Alliance troops moved in and made all the injured get up and go home regardless of condition. The Shepard took in some of the more injured and Jasper, having always been a religious man took to study of the good book in earnest. He wasn’t going home. He had seen to much to simply be a rancher once again. Seeing how the Alliance treated the local town instilled in him a hatred that couldn’t be quelled. These good folk hadn’t chosen sides but that didn’t mater. They were sympathizers as far as the Alliance was concerned and they all but subjugated them because of it.

A year later he made himself a Shepard. Turns out there isn’t any test or approvals you need. Just another Shepard to vouch for you so you can have on your I.D. Having traveled only war zones he set out to see this great verse and hoped to do some good along the way. Always ready to help out a fellow Browncoat and dish out some old school justice if needed. These two thing culminated when a fellow ex-soldier got hospitalized and his daughter raped by a patrol of Alliance officers who thought they were untouchable. Jasper touched them though. By the time a second unit responded and pulled him off in shackles he had busted the 3 men up pretty good and was a few hits from killing them. The local town government wasn’t gonna be pushed around though and when video arrived of the assault on the man and his daughter the Alliance cut its loses and erased the matter completely. Jasper was walking free the next day with more than just a hand shake from the locals. He knew he had to get out of there though. Alliance might not officially do anything but unofficially you could just disappear. The local sheriff gave him a pistol from the armory seeing that he didn’t have one and the man whose daughter he had avenged gave him another. Mercy and Vengeance now never leave his sides.

Finding a transport looking to get into the black he bought passage and that’s how he met the crew of the Satori. It has only been a month but knows he has no intention of leaving her anytime soon.

Likes:Honest people, Thinkers (even if you don’t agree with him), Good drink, Sticking it to the Alliance
Dislikes:Scum (Bankers, politicians, murderers, The Alliance…you know…scum)Liars, thieves, Bad drinks and bad deals. People who wont look you in the eye.
Hobbies:tinkering with old guns or engines.
Fears and Phobias: Storms scare him. As a kid storms were rare but violent and deadly.
Ons and Offs: Jasper is a straight forward guy. He loves women, not girls. He draws the line at anything past minorly kinky.

Extraneous Information: Jasper is a whistler and does it without even thinking. It was a nervous habit he picked up in the military. He knows more about meat and booze than anyone running around on ships should and always seems able to get his hands on good versions of both including his home worlds famous whisky.

Hey MR! We're still open for recruiting, so that's not an issue. I'm not really sure that the Captain could use a fence per se, as any jobs she takes to 'redistribute wealth' would be for a client rather than a simple theft that required selling an item. There's also already a character in the game with negotiation skills, so I want to be sure that we don't have too much overlap in special skills among the crew. A character that can provide job contacts would certainly be very useful. Were you set on a fence, or is there another character type that might interest you?

It does sound like a fun character concept. Having a fence just puts the crew in a professional outlaw business rather than a taking questionable jobs to scrape by sort of business. You could potentially leave that in a character's history if the need ever cropped up though ;).

Given the current makeup of the accepted and reserved characters, the last two remaining slots are open for female characters only.

UPDATE

There are still three open slots on the ship, including the Companion, if anyone is interested. It would be great if two of those characters could be women, given the current makeup of the crew and passengers ;)


Although gameplay has started, it woud still be very easy for a new player to jump in  ;D

UPDATE

There are currently four slots open on the ship, including the Companion which could be a male or female character. Would really love to have a couple more female characters on board.  Gameplay has begun, but we're currently dirtside, so it's still easy for any new players to jump right into play.

Hey renrac! Yes there are - one crew slot and one passenger slot (if you had an interest in playing a passenger) that could easily be converted to a crew position. Did you have an idea in mind?

No worries, hun. I'm just excited that you're interested :-). I'll go ahead and claim a slot for you.

One character of the two claimed spots is a sort of behinds the scenes, able to break into anything ex-browncoat, and the other person hasn't submitted a sheet yet, so I have no idea what they're thinking of, lol. The Captain takes on both light (i.e. transporting cargo) to heavy (i.e. can you free my town of this nasty person - or worse) jobs, so she likes to have a fair number of gunhands on board, and we just lost one, so that's always a good choice. What additional skills you tack on to round the character out are up to you. Feel free to check out the accepted characters to see what kind of people are already in play.

Does that help?

Until I am ready for a character - I am more than happy to give up my space to Madmartigan. 

I have some ideas, and I think I might wait until the game starts - so that way I can get a feel for things..

It would definitely help me flesh out more just seeing everyone in action.

But definitely keep me in mind Kuro, please! <3

The game's already started, so why don't you go and have a look at the in character threads before you give up your slot? They're linked in the table of contents at the beginning of this thread. Like I said, another slot should be opening up tomorrow that Mad can take ;)

Hey!  I'm interested.  I've been reading through the game information and I'd like to reserve a spot.  I was thinking a former browncoat who went awol after his C.O. did some shitty stuff to him, and then went private sector, doing some frelance (maybe merc) stuff, but always moving around before he got in close with a regular crew with this being his next jump.  If that sounds alright, I'd get right started on a character sheet.

EDIT:  Oh with Gareth David-Lloyd as the faceclaim, please.

Hey Amarlo! You can see what positions are filled in the second post in this thread, here. There are 6 women and 10 men currently, 2 characters are passengers, the rest are crew. The open slot could be for a crew or passenger character. The character that recently departed was a gunhand, but a new character doesn't have to take that role ;)

Offline Amarlo

I will make a character. Please don't hold the position for me because this may take a while :) I plan to read everything before creating a character and if I don't make mine before someone else comes in and takes the spot I'll just save the character for a later game or when another spot opens in the future :3

What's the average posting speed? Read the info and that answered that

How fast do you need the character created?

Reckon I can make myself a gun hand. When a man's learned to shoot, and got no army to shoot for, he takes what he can get!

Hi there, Writersblockade!

Most of the players took up to a week to create their characters. Does that sound workable for you? If you decide you want him to have been on the ship for awhile, then we can assume he's just not been part of what's been going on dirtside; but if you want him to be brand new to the crew, then we'll need to get him in on one of the dirtside threads as soon as we can. I can definitely think of how to work him in ;).

Feel free to PM me if you need any help with details or time on the ship, etc.

I have an idea for a former sideshow knife thrower, who had to go on the run from a debt, found Taoism and is now a pacifist chef traveling the 'Verse to where ever the Tao takes him. The down side is classes start tomorrow and I may not be able to do much with advancing a character until Friday. Let me know if that could be an issue?

About 50% done with the character sheet. I've been wondering, we have a lot of Triad and Yakuza members as prominent NPCs, would it work to give mu character a loose familial connection to one of those gangs? I mean in terms of RP possibilities, instead of just some generic rich family.

UPDATE 10/23/15

There are now two additional spots in the game for crew and/or passengers for a total of SEVEN open roles :-) These characters can be male or female (though we could use some more women on board ;).

Could you use a traveling negotiator and saleswoman for various interests say selling anything of value as a go between - an example if a colony needs indentured she might connect them to a reliable broker for a commission on the brokers side or if a businessman is a mine owner she might have a robotic mine drill source who would give her a commission for selling them a drill robot and parts ... a legitimate business woman self employed.

Dear Kuroneko:

Question: What sort of crew is needed?  I tried to cross reference and was finding it to be a bit of a headache >.<

Anything in particular needed? 

Wanted?

Let me know!

(Now that I can show interest/have time again!)

Thanks

Rebelle!

I'm glad to hear that you have time to consider BSR again :-)

I just spoke with someone today about a gunhand character, which would put us at four. Just thinking aloud off the top of my head, we don't have anyone in the crew that specializes in negotiation, or forgery, or someone that is something of a chameleon and can blend into his or her surroundings, and therefore able to infiltrate locations while being seen.

A passenger could be just about anything, from a rich kid that wants to see the 'Verse to a scientist that needs to be on a ship as part of their research, a pilgrim on a quest and everything in between.

UPDATE 11/21/15

The reservation for the Companion position has expiered and is now available for annyone interested in playing that role in the game. This character can be male or female.
There are also two additional spots available in the game for crew or passenger characters, male or female.

Please don't let the number of OOC or IC posts deter you from considering us. It's still easy to join the game as an established crewmember or a new character ;)

Interested. What is needed in the way of crew?

EDIT: I read you can have two characters. I am thinking of an Alliance special forces soldier who had defected to the Browncoats during the Unification War over a girl that turned out to be an Independent. She is a hacker and was an intel analyst for the Brown Coats. Since the end of the war they have just been pulling jobs together, with him as the boots on ground operative and her as mission control. If you like that idea they could come on board as passengers and then maybe get swept up in everything. Let me know if I should come up with character sheets for the two of them.

Hey there, Fury. Welcome and thanks for your interest in BSR :-).

Currently, the most recognizable open role on the ship is for a Companion, someone who, like Inara on the Serenity, would use one of the ship's shuttles as their living quarters and place of business. As for the other two roles, they can be either passengers or crew. With crew I like for each character to have a 'specialty' or niche skill that lets them fulfill role on the ship and allows them to shine in unique ways in gameplay (though there's always going to be some overlap among the various gunhands). The taken roles I have listed in the second post are only the ones I could think of off of the top of my head. There are certainly more that we can come up with together. More and more, looking at the character sheets, it feels like the crew is becoming the Captain's private mercenary company, lol.

Passengers can be pretty open as far as background and reasons for traveling are concerned.

Was that at all helpful? You're more than welcome to PM me for a lengthier discussion.

Hi! It's been ages since I've done a group RP, but I just adore Forefly. Is your crew in need of anything? I too had trouble cross referencing. The only things that I've got in mind is I'd like to play a guy.

Hey Cleo! Welcome :-)

We're down one gunhand currently and I need to check with the mechanic player to see if he's still in the game since he hasn't posted in a while. So, that position might be open as well.

I would love to play a mechanic! I'll hold off on coming up with a gunhand until you can let me know, but if you're guy is still in on the game I'll be happy to make one of those.
