Males needed eh? How about a surly half-orc ship's cook?

As long as we can call him Cookie.

I know what I want, I just can't find a picture for it! It's impossible to find "soft"-looking fantasy males that aren't bishi anime crap. -flails-

I'll have to think on the orc half of that since they aren't like standard D&D orcs in this setting. However, I hadn't even considered having a cook on board. Technically I'm not sure you would have a cook, but I love the idea of a typically tough character type being something so different. I'll PM you when I'm done work to bounce some ideas around.

I know this feel. If need be, feel free to use a non-fantasy face claim. This goes for everyone. We can always describe outfits or link images to clothing.

So just to clear up a personal confusion of mine, Gnomes are the primary experts in technology, not the dwarves?

Yes. They are on the cutting edge. However, Dwarves still excel at things like architecture, and are likely crafting more "commercial" items used day to day. Think of gnomes as a larger contractor such as Lockheed Martin, or the company that makes all the equipment all the other companies use. Unless it's being sold onto the black market, your average person is likely not touching anything crafted by gnomes in their day to day activities.

Well I was curious about maybe filling the role of the person who like tinkers on the ship. Thought a mad dwarven engineer and blacksmith would fit the role but maybe a gnome would be better, though never really liked gnomes.

Dwarf would be fine. Remember, there are always exceptions to rules. Also, gnomes are not a playable race for reasons that shall remain seeeeeecret.

edit: Does Roderick's Captain duty include piloting? or does the moaning molly not need a real "pilot" because it's sentient. And! If there is no pilot... What kind of role on the ship would replace that role...?

There is definitely a pilot\helmsman\navigator onboard; even if they are there partly for show. If people knew Molly was sentient than she'd never get any business, so paying someone to do the job might seem unnecessary but it does mean Molly and the crew get paid. For the most part Molly would leave a competent pilot\helmsman to get on with things but still keep an eye out and step in if necessary, or occasionally the pilot might find flying a little bit easier than it should be as Molly is helping out.

does the moaning molly not need a real "pilot" because it's sentient.
Calling Molly an "it" is a quick way to find yourself overboard  :P

Currently EtherealGirl is covering role of Navigation, which would be done on an old fashioned wheel with additional levers for y-axis manueverability.

She and Roderick would likely swap places on occasion.

If EtherealGirl chooses another role to take, then Navigator would open up.

good call. Still adjusting to the idea of a living ship. :)

EDIT: It is all but impossible to find images of non-nasty harpies, much less ones with Victorian/Georgian/Edwardian/steampunkish couture.

I think this one is pretty good.

I'm having trouble thinking of a role on the ship. My back-up plans weren't as good as I thought they were. Just noting, taking some time to put together a CS that I'm happy with.

I am still holding interest in this, just haven't had the time to write something up.  I'm going to do some mercenary for hire / muscle at the moment.  Deciding either human or dragonborn though.

So sounds like maybe not a half orc? I'm fine with changing to a human or something different as need be, but I'd still love the opportunity to be the ship's cook if possible.

Alias, feel free to PM your ideas to me and Mia H. We could always help you brainstorm.

Chreestafer, you may need to PM me to specify dragonborn and see if we can come up with something fitting.

Eightxinfinity, shoot, I meant to PM you. Ship's cook will be fine. I'm planning on putting together a layout of the airship this weekend and will be including a kitchen. No idea how a kitchen on a boat works but then again a sentient airship h is a bit out of my logic zone as well. Gnomes did it. Problem solved.

I'll provide much better answers tonight when I'm at my keyboard proper.
