Attention, eligible spacers, navigators, mechanics and engineers! The Laughing Dianoga, Wayfarer-class medium transport (Imperial Bureau of Ships and Services official designation TR77-114BHB-LR40) is currently seeking to take on new crew in all positions to run cargo along the Perlemian Trade Route. To apply, please contact Captain Dunn Mar. Jedi need not apply.
The notice gleams on the holo-board at bars and cantinas all across the Outer Rim- someone needs a crew, and they need it badly. Anywhere the Laughing Dianoga
has been, the captain has left behind the same message- credits to those who would follow. The name Dunn Mar might be an unfamiliar one to most, but the Laughing Dianoga
has a bit of a reputation of its own in certain circles. The humble Wayfarer had once been an active player in the smuggling scene along the Perlemian Trade Route almost twenty years past, but more recent tales of it had slowed down to barely a trickle. If this really was the same ship, the captain must be new to it- which might explain why he needs a crew.
Welcome, one and all! I am currently seeking 3-6 players to embark on an adventure through the Star Wars universe. Taking the role of smugglers, the group would essentially be interacting with each other on a regular basis while they perform their various cargo hauls and smuggling runs, which I think could create plenty of room for exciting relationships. I only enforce a few simple rules-
- No God Modding- The Cardinal Rule of RP really, but it's worth stating. Always leave room for other players to react to what you do, don't just state how they react to your action directly.
- Spelling and Grammar- Now, I will not be expecting perfect grammar or spelling. I personally do most of my posting from a tablet, and am prone to missing when the device auto-corrects me or I otherwise make a mistake, but I generally spell check each post before submitting it. Additionally, when posting, I try my hardest to make sentences that follow the general rules of grammar, but this isn't as big as the spelling issue.
- Post Length- I do not enforce a post length, but generally I expect about a paragraph in response- gauge your partners, if they wrote 3 paragraphs, give them more than a one-sentence response.
- Post Frequency- like post length, I don't really police this too hard, but for the sake of your fellow players, I request that only players who can commit to 2-3 posts a week should apply. Slow responses can really bog down a game, and if it's found that the game is moving faster that you are, please let me know and we'll see what needs to be done.
Outside of that, that's pretty much all there is too it. I'll be taking the role of Dunn Mar, the new captain of the Laughing Dianoga
, and will provide his character description below. Additionally, please use the skeleton below to format your character applications so that everyone can be more easily read and appropriately judged. This will not be a first-come, first-serve game, but will rather have more to do with how the new players will fit the party dynamic.
All genders and sexualities are welcome!
Human (Coruscanti)Crew Position:
Dunn is, at his best, a strong-willed and capable pilot and negotiator, and trusting to boot. At his worst, however, he's stubborn and hot-headed, and sometimes his trust in others lands him in hot water. He has a self-professed weakness for "strays and runaways," and is always interested in making a quick couple credits.Background:
Born in the Coruscant under-city, Dunn spent the first half of his life completely unaware of what the sky looked like, and had no interest in the stars. At age 16, he and his friends snuck aboard a short-range cargo hauler that took them to Anaxes, where they got their first look at the outside world. Feeling that first jolt as they entered into hyperspace, Dunn found himself unable to resist the call of the stars, and began saving his money to leave Coruscant behind. Once he had enough money, he chartered a ship to the Outer Rim and began doing odd jobs, until he came into a vessel of his own, the Laughing Dianoga
, in a game of chance.Description/Picture: Dunn Mar
