Title: Story #16: JOINING
Post by: Muargath on October 14, 2003, 04:43:22 PM
Rules for playing


1: Write in Third-Person- Past Tense

2: No "God" playing!

3: Be creative, feel free to add bits to the story!

4: Have fun!


If you have any other questions about roleplaying in general, let The Ten Commandments of Role-Playing be your guide.

Read further for info specific to this game:

UPDATE: Along with the listed PCs (and including the NPCs), we have a total of 25 live people on board The Dark Ship (and about a dozen "ghosts" ) .

If you would like to join this story, please post here in this thread.  Once you are confirmed, post your CD and Contact info in the appropriate threads.

Your posted CD is required in order to play!

"Any previously accepted PC who hasn't posted for whatever reason may be written out of the story at the next port, or I may hold that PC in reserve and bunny the character as needed to keep the story running timely! " :read                            

Since the ship will be rounding the continent on its journey, there will be a couple more stops before hitting the open sea. Hopefully by then, everyone one will be on board (pun intended).

Cheers!

Of course you may bring in your brownie PC!    Just post your CD in the CD thread and you can join us whenever you want.  You might want to read up on a few things, or you can come in without a clue.. however you wish to play it out.  :)

I'll be setting up a reference map soon enough.  If you have any questions as to where we are atright now, Hidden Port is located in the north eastern section of the Sarvonian continent, on the Peninsula of Iol.

Welcome aboard!

Welcome Nyleia... you may start posting at any time.  

You will be starting out in Hidden Port.  How you got there and why you are there is up to you.

I've been doing some research on Hidden Port and have found there is nothing written anywhere about the place.  So, for now, I'll call it a smugglers' port (which explains why it's hidden).  There are a variety of ways a person can end up here... from being kidnapped/shanghaid, to being on a bounty hunt, to traveling the parameter of the continent, to being lost... I mean the list goes on.  

Just try to tie it in to your PC's background, ok?  

Once again, welcome.  Just just in when you are ready!

Cheers,

Muargath

Hello peeps, it's Rose. Anyway...um....I kinda deleted my Rose account , not really being active around here out of lack of RPs, so....I definately want to join up again (I praise you, Muargath, for the E-Mail. :worship  ) so I'll try to get a local account and get retitled.  
:broadgrin

Again, many thanks, Muargath, and...hey again! :broadgrin

Hey Rose!  Nice to see you again.

Your Rose CD should be in the Approved PC archives.  Just post it here in the CD thread and talk to Admin about getting your new account titled.

I'm happy you came back (and very glad you have the same email addy still).  Now if only Terq (Hi Viresse!) will start posting, we'll have almost all the older Players back.

Whoot!

You look titled to me...Valannia.  ;)    Go ahead and put your contact info back into the Contact thread (just edit your post) and also post your CD in the CD thread (minus the history).

The point of the CD thread, in case anyone is interested, is to give everyone a better idea of what your PC looks like, since most people don't describe their own PC in freat detail.

Oh, and, feel free to jump in at any time...  preferably before the ship sets sail at sundown.



Wow, I just noticed-  we have nearly an all-woman group here, except for Gaynor & Laen (both ran by Gaynor) , Necro (my other PC), and, should he join, Terq, all the other PCs are female.  This could get nteresting...

It'll help a lot if you pay attention to the descriptions.

That's right!  Another guy!  Now we have two who aren't being ran my the mods.  Cool.  :devilish

But we sure have a lot of elves.  Pretty soon, we'll have enough for you all to start another elf tribe after you all get stranded on Yamalquian.  (Oops, did I let loose a spoiler?)  :lol     Nah, THAT won't happen.  ;)

But there is no doubt that the dark ship might be this world's version of the love boat!   :heart   :loveeyes    :hug   :loveeyes   :heart

Title: Re: JOINING
Post by: Nyleia on October 22, 2003, 10:20:22 AM
....erm......lol, at least ther'll be lots of fish.

btw, what's the climate like on Yamalquian?



Title: Re: JOINING
Post by: Muargath on October 22, 2003, 09:24:22 AM
And if anyone gets seasick, we now have a healer to help out!  :clap  

I'll find out about the climate on Yamalquain.  So far, all I know is that it is a wasteland.  

Back.   Yamalquain is comprised of thirteen land-masses/islands that stretch as far north as Northern Sarvonia and as far south as the southern tip of Sarvonia.  I can't provide a link, but if you go here and click on the shield on the site menu, then click on "Caelereth, the World of", and scroll down you'll see the worldmap, which shows Yamalquain in the southeast corner.  I am using this map, and the climate will be comparable to the climates of countries at the same latitudes.

I researched the Santharian Dream site and found only a few plants and animals have been developed for the southern islands of Yamalquain, which is warm and balmy (palm trees and big lizards).


But, this adventure will take place on the largest landmass of Yamalquain, and like much of this adventure, descriptions of the places we visit are not sanctioned by the developers of the main project which is Caelereth.  In other words, I'm making it all up, they will not be using my ideas, and beyond this story, my descriptions will not hold any weight in the World of Caelereth.  By the way, Admin is ok with this.  ;)

But even so, I am trying to stick with everything already established.  The Peninsula of Iol is just starting to be developed on the other board, and I am sure that what I come up with will wildly deviate from what they come up with.  But, after this story is done, it won't really matter.  ;)

To prospective new players:

I should mention that since The Dark Ship is out to sea, we will not be adding new players to the game until we hit another port.

If you want to join up, you can let me know.  Be warned you might have a long wait.  On the bright side, this gives you a chance to read up on all the posts.  ;)

Hey.  Of course you may join, though it may be a month or so (real time) before we reach another port.  It all depends on how the postings go.  

By the way, the CD link in your post didn't work.

Hi,  I'd like to join too, can wait, I suppose!.   Posts limited to mon-thurs (mostlY), luckily I try to write a form of introspection in so that they can bibble in the background when I'm off line.  Let me know if thats a prob tho.

Title: Re: JOINING
Post by: Muargath on November 13, 2003, 07:36:22 PM
Well, Calanthe... uhm, how exactly would a "perfume maker" fit into an epic adventure such as this?  I mean, I really appreciate your wanting to join this game, but why would your PC even want to go?

I haven't read your CD so I don't know if there is more going on with your character, but please, before asking to join just any story, you might want to consider the type of story you are getting involved with.  This story is going to put the PCs into very real dangers and all will need to be useful in some way or other.  Warriors we have quite a few of, but we will always need more; healers will be necessary, as will wizards and, occasionally, the rogue-types.  This isn't a vacation boat, though.  Each character will be expected to pull his or her own weight.

Give me a valid reason, other than you just want to join in the writing fun, because for a non-fighter type to join in, there will have to be some real motivation.  I look forward to hearing your views on this.

For those people interested in joining, it looks like The Dark Ship's next stop is the port town Eanin, off the Icelands Coast (check the map- Peninsula of Iol).

Just a bit of info for those who like to plan ahead.

Post by: Tiaa Lywin on November 26, 2003, 09:07:22 PM
Could Tiaa join in the fray? She is not a warrior, but a cleric of Grothar...she could be useful. I also can think of a reason she would come along. She is searching for the ancient books of all the Grotharian female clerics known as Weather Witches. Her search could require that she boards a ship to some place *need a name* and she boards the Ghost Ship...or maybe...ummm...yeah, I think I will just let her be invited on the ship. I don't know why though...I need a reason to go, perhaps because I...man!!! :explode

Title: Re: JOINING
Post by: Muargath on November 27, 2003, 08:59:22 AM
Tiaa, it wouldn't be common knowledge that the people on the ship are searching for the Book of Knowledge, except to the people already on the quest, of course.  If you go that route, you'll need a very good explanation on how you came by that information.  It will need to be handled carefully too, because Gaynor might think your PC is a spy. (He grows more paranoid as he gets closer to his goal.)

Anyone who wants to join this story must do so at Port Eanin- located off of the Icelands Coast in Northern Sarvonia-  You'd need to figure out why your PC is there and why your PC would even step foot on such a wicked-looking ship in the first place.

Once docked, there will be no formal recruiting by anyone on the ship, nor are there any advertisements as such, but the ship will be taking on supplies, loading and offloading cargo.  

One cannot stow-away on this ship, either.   The ship's enchantments won't allow it and you would be found right away.  (The Captain is aware of every living soul on the ship.)  Chances are, you'd be put off the ship before it left port, so best to approach the ship openly.

The Dark Ship will not be the only ship at the port, so saying that you need passage somewhere is not a good enough reason to approach this ship.

The best way to get on board is to approach one of the people who are enjoying the short stay at Eanin.  Strike up a conversation and perhaps show how useful you could be to Gaynor's quest (even if you don't know of the quest, you can prove your worth) and hopefully be brought back to the ship because of that.  There are other ways, too, so be creative.

If anyone wants to join in and have a secret agenda for their PC, the player need only contact me @
Dragon_tarot@lycos.com
and put "The Dead God's Book" in the subject line so I don't accidental delete the email before I read it (I get a lot of spam, darn it all).  We'll get a dialog going and perhaps create a great new plot direction.


It is also ok to plan stuff  for the PCs with the other players.  This can best be handled either in the OOC thread or via email, although if you do the latter, I'd appreciate it if someone clues me in...

Anyway, welcome, welcome.  A cleric is always welcome!

Post by: Roland Hamaton on December 02, 2003, 05:58:22 AM
I was looking at this a while ago and never posted because you said it was going to be a month or so, figured I would just wait.

Now you are there so now I shall ask. I would like to join; it’s an interesting, though some times hard to follow, thread you have here. I am currently in another story, honestly I don’t know if that is a problem or not. I should be able to post, even on my busiest of days, once ad ay.

As for my character, eh... I am going to email you shortly after writing this as to a possibility but other than that, I don't really know. Roland would do anything for riches, so maybe if there where riches to be had he would be extremely interested. The book alone Roland would love to get his hands on, who knows how much he could get from selling the book. If you have any other ideas there feel free to let me know.

Biggest problem I see is Roland is very much spy/assassin material, making him subject to be suspected, like you said "Gaynor might think your PC is a spy".

If your to lazy to look at my link to see about my character, very basicly he is a Assassin/Theif out for revenge and money. He is not the same as the typical Assassin/Theif, or so I would hope not

Heya Roland, Muargath here.  I sent you an email just about an hour ago.  I hope the information is enough to get you started.  If not, reply and we'll work it out.

No, I don't mind how many stories you are in, just so long as you can keep up.  When we are going strong, everyone here is posting at least once a day.  Slow times seems closer to 2-3 times a week.

So far, the story has be pretty straight-forward, with introductions, character building and a straight-line plot.  I expect that, sooner or later, many twists and turns will happen, along with the possibility of the group being separated.  I am still considering if I should split the threads at that point, but we'll see.

Meantime, welcome!  Post whever you are ready.  :)

Title: Joining
Post by: Rhorik on December 05, 2003, 11:17:22 AM
I see that we have landed at the dock and I am here to give a plan on how I can join the group.......

I think I could be sitting in a bar watching two people from your crew conversing about the the voyage.  I just happen to overhear them and think to myself that I have to join you guys.  Then a drunk sitting close by starts up with one of your crew.  The owner soon settles it but I notice the look in the drunks eyes that says he is not through with him.

He walks over to the table adjacent to mine and starts talking to his friend when I get a glimpse of a dagger in the drunken sailors hand.  As he walks towards your men from the back with the instincts to kill I soon realize I must help them and quickly grab my dagger concealed from view and stab him in the back right before the sailor brings down the knife on your crewman.

Your friend realizes I just saved his life and thanks me gratefully.  Then offers me anything in return for saving his life.  I recall the voyage they were talking about and remember what I promised my father about making a name for myself and ask them if I could tag along.  They notice my sword and my body build and realize I could be of help on the dark roads ahead and they head off to ask you..


This is the basics for my plan I am wondering if it would be ok for my pc to join and I shall be waiting to see if you will agree.  Of course it would need a crew member to help with the joining but im sure someone would gladly do it.  If you would like to email me my email is wmc1117@hotmail.com  :clap



Title: Re: Joining
Post by: Muargath on December 07, 2003, 07:06:22 AM
Rhorik, you are in luck!  It just so happens that one of the crew (Zak) will be getting in a bit of trouble shortly.

I like the idea of your helping out someone in trouble, it just won't happen in a bar and it won't be one of the PCs.  Keep reading the posts and you will see a good point to jump in.  Remember, Zak is the NPC you want to watch for.

So post your CD and Contact info in the correct threads, then go ahead and post an entrance in the game, even if you aren't interacting with anyone yet.  Be sure to describe yourself and your actions, ok?

Welcome to the game!

I'd figured it was before my story began. I won't be disappearing again. atleast not in the forseen next five years.

No Dinga, you may not join this game because you must be "Titled" first.  That is the first rule of roleplaying at this sight!

Please go to the Character Creation area and start there.

Here is the link.  Click on it, read the information, and get started on your Character Description (CD) thread.

Now begone, you, and come back after you've been approved!

Well,ive just posted a character after fixing it(This is Dinga by the way)and im awaiting mods and admins to comment/title me.

Post by: Muargath on December 25, 2003, 08:53:22 PM
If your PC is titled before the ship leaves Port Eanin, you may join.  I wouldn't get my hopes up though, if I were you, since the approval process is a bit drawn-out... unless you know how to give the CD-Mods exactly what they are looking for.

Once The Dark Ship of Ghosts heads out to sea again, there will be no more more chances for anyone to jump into the story.

Well,if you could be so kind as to wait at least one day before setting sail,that would be great thank you.

Post by: Muargath on December 27, 2003, 04:50:22 PM
Hmmm.  Sorry.  Can't do that.   My players have waited long enough as it is.  

When the night falls in this story, the ship sails.  Period.  If you are titled by then, you may join.

By any chance is this story still open?

The story is open until I start the next chapter... which will happen very soon...

Some people who have asked to join (and that I have accepted) haven't posted yet, so they better get on it fast, or the ship will sail without them.

Any player with a titled character may join- so long as the PC fits this story and there should be good reason for that character to come along.

Yes, and you also will need a good reason to join the expedition.  It's supposed to be a secret mission.

Muargath! ahem,
If its not too late of course...

I would very, very, much love the opportunity to be in this story.. I don't know how yet.. as i've not bent my mind on thinking anything up..

But.. Gashnum always makes for good company.. or I can play someone else if needs be.

so...
Can I can I please Please!?! :worship

Gashnum!  Buddy!  Pal!  Where have you been? (And are you aware that some miscreant* has been using your pic here in Caelereth?)  

Of course you may play.  This story take place about a year before Sinen's Search for the Fire Gem begins, so there may be some weirdness for our characters meeting... but hey, I don't care.

Also, you may not know this, Sinen is starting up his game again as well.  

I'm assuming you've read the first post in this thread, so pick an open dialog color and let me know which one it is, ok?

Cheers!

*gasp* someone, using MY picture!?
Well, great minds think alike, and that sort of thing.:biggrin

As for where i've been.. around the time "search for the fire Gem" died I got a new computer. Caelereth was not added to my favorites.. untill yesterday when I realized that I had forgotten this (wonderful) place... but thats my weak excuse for being absent the last four? months.
But I'm back now, and I'll be staying!

Alright then.. I think it would be best to have our characters already know each other when they meet again. That would make things easier, and far less confusing.

and for my color I'll go with the classic ,Firebrick.

yeah, I noticed Sinen starting his thread again, and I posted there. I dunno if Gashnum will hang around long. He's kinda beat up.. and well, generally not healthy after that whole mess. But we'll see where he decides to go from there.

Thanks!

Done.  :)     If you have any problems using the custom color, just holler and I'll help ya out.

Addendum:

Uhm, not done!  Caribbean blue is not a valid color in the system, Captain Shaendru.  Could you please choose one that is listed in the first post?  

Thanks,

You want a blue, right?  I'll give Salmon to the NPC Jenar, and you can have Cornflowerblue.  It's a nice shade.

Do you know how to use it?

Am I Wrong to assume that you guys are still looking for people to join up? ....Im freshly titled here....And my fingers are itchin to do some typin.....

Im not sure of a very interesting way to join besides the fact that im already a Travelin Chic....But i could always think of one if given the opportunity...and even if its not right when u start out but further down the line that i could join would be just as peachy ....So whacha Say???



Title: Re: JOINING
Post by: Muargath on January 09, 2004, 05:50:22 PM
That all depends.... what can your PC do to assist in this perilous quest?



Title: Re: JOINING
Post by: Slye Yunkia on January 10, 2004, 03:18:22 PM
Well what can I bring to the Quest?.....Well...yah gotta think what can my Character Bring to the Journey That the other PCS that you already have assembled  haven’t ?  That’s a tuffy.... Cause Im sure you already have a swordsman/herbalist/assassin etc. etc......Slye’s really not exceptional in anything except for Runnin her mouth...(She is good with a sword Don’t get me wrong just not exceptional) She’s also stubborn and can be hot tempered....And I think if you have anyone in the story that maybe likes to Dish it out....She’s one to Dish it right back...... That might add a lil something to the story .....they can have that relationship that all they do is argue but you know that respect is still there ......maybe add some Humor to it ....

Some info.....My character had a fall out with her father who was really her right hand.(he raised her, he was her life)..But Since she’s so stubborn and Pride stricken that  instead of trying to resolve the problem she ran from it....She’s just trying to get further and further away from him...and what not a better way to get away than to hop on a boat...*Sighs* ...Im not sure if this is something you would be interested in or not....I’ve Rped before just not here in Caelereth and I would love to get a taste of things...But if not I understand *Sniff* I’ll try real hard not ta cry....lol ..but it does at least give yah something to think about so I know I’ve done something right...

Title: Re: JOINING
Post by: Muargath on January 10, 2004, 06:12:22 PM
Well, the only reason I asked is because this is a structured adventure... it is not the same thing as wandering into a tavern and just talking to people (although it may look like that is what the PCs are doing now).

Your PC would need a real reason to go to another continent on a perilous adventure.  Everyone else here has some reason to go.  About the only character that is not necessary is my own PC, Muargath.  She is sort of a 'mixer' and a way for me to pass info on to people.

I'll tell you what... why don't you read the top thread (again?) to find out what this game is about.  If it still interests you, then you need to figure out a way to get on the ship. (Stowing away is not an option, your PC will be found and booted off the boat).  If you have a subplot that you think might interest me, you can email me at:
Dragon_tarot@lycos.com
and put "The Dead God's Book" in the subject line.

We'll go from there, ok?

Oh Yea....I know its structured...I know how it all works...I was just trying to explain that my character really doesnt have a legit reason to want to go search out this Dead Gods Book Besides the fact Shes just looking for an adventure...Im's workin woman So i has ta go to work...But maybe tonight or Early tomorow ill email yah w/ a good way to get on the boat If thats cool...And see whacha think about it......

Please I dont wantcha to feel Obligated or anything...If your not feelin it Please let me Know ...But ill def get at you and like you said we can go from there
