@Hollow Ichigo : First, I’m honored to be considered, good sir. I would gladly accept, but I fear that wouldn’t be true to Jasper’s character, unfortunately. Jasper has “a strong distaste for pirates,” and though some explaining/retro editing could be done to reveal why he’s on your character’s ship, I think it’s more plausible if he starts out not being a part of a crew.
But don’t despair! If, in the RPG, you find a way to convince Jasper to join your crew, he just might do it. I’ll leave your methods up to you (and if you choose to do that I’m sure the result will be interesting), but again I certainly appreciate the invitation.
So a challenge to get him on the ship. i can think of a few ways. It should be interesting, and it gives me a challenge. Plus I'm pretty good at getting opposites to attract. See Angelik. Every D-Mod there is basic hates their leader or follows because of survival. *Evil Grin* We shall see how this goes.
I'm home! Finally!
Sorry guys! I know I said that I wanted to start the RP by the end of last week, but we stayed in Panama longer than expected (not that I'm complaining) and I was visiting an art school in Orlando that I'm set on going to now.
For those of you who are still wanting to stick with this RP, then I'd like to thank you for your patience!
@HateSpawn98 You may have the position of the cook.
@Valkarma Is it strange to say I love you? Because I really do right now. I'm so very glad you're my co-GM! You've done an excellent job!
@Hollow Ichigo I still may create a crew member for your crew! I'm thinking gunner or bos'n. We'll see.
Alright, so I'm going to start the RP later today! but right now, I'm tired from driving so bear with me. Thank you everyone for joining this RP! Let's all have fun! How can you not when pirates are involved?
@Esiphas Sorry! I didn't realize you were waiting on my approval! But Alena is Approved! Finally, a medic!
@Aelwynsal She's absolutely gorgeous! *Thinks back to Valk's post about all the females in this rp* Heehee, approved love.
@Hollow Ichigo Ahaha, I'd like to see that. But who would be the man... or woman to win the captain's heart I wonder? ^_^
Alright, before I start typing up the rp, I’m going to recap because it seems like something a good GM would do.
The ships and its crew are as follows:
Captain- Sapphira the “Saint”
Quartermaster- God-Eye Galatea
Medic- Alena Hera
Musician and Back-up Gunner- Candeza O’Malley
Captain- Christopher Thomas, “The Gentle Pirate”
Quartermaster (to be?)- Jace Aeon Harlon
Captain- Noir Blackwing
Quartermaster- Haley “Brighteyes” Attenya
Dog- Hayate ;P
Swab Hand- evelyn (Eve) Brower
Alphonse Delacroix- Tactician
Citizens and other such persons:
Jasper Chrysostom- Physician
Alexandra “Gunslinger”- Sentinel of Tazo
John Brower- Former mayor/head of the island
Plamen- Thief and Spy
If I've missed anyone, please tell me! Now, I will work on RP itself then onto creating two more characters. Trying to catch up while watching Desperate Housewives is rather difficult haha. I know you guys are judging. Be my guest. :P

Jace will gladly join your crew.
We can finalize the details and pay in the roleplay
Welcome back, Shobu, and thank you. I'm looking forward to writing with everyone.
Slight change of plans Valk. I'm sure you know what I mean.
Name: Rufus Haverbend
Appearance: Rufus He wears the typical loose white shirt with black pants tucked into black cuffed boots. Over his shirt, he wears a black fitting overcoat under a red sash and black belt. Around his neck is a small golden clam shell on a thin gold chain. Stands at about 5'3". Very hard toned. Skin is sun-kissed but its natural color is that of the picture.
Weapon(s): A sling shot with a pouch of a variety of benevolent to deadly little objects to shoot. A seemingly simple cutlass; the handle is carved from gold and there are tiny silver seashells of all sorts that circle the hilt. A carving knife.
Special Talents/Abilities: He has perfect aim; never misses his target. Expert swordsman. Fast on his feet and packs a powerful punch. Give him a knife and a piece of wood, he can carve you a masterpiece.
Ship: None at the moment
Position: Gunner and Cooper for higher
Personality: Mysterious character. He seems to always be glaring, but maybe that's just the way he always looks. He's not adverse to using his looks to get what he wants but it's the last tactic he resorts to, most definitely. He seems like the quiet type, always deep in thought or perhaps scheming something. He doesn't like to use pirate slang although he is one. Passive-aggressive. When he snaps, it's best to clear the room; he gets this crazy look in his eye that warns you that he will not hesitate to slice your throat if you make one wrong move. This applies greatly to when he's harassed about his pretty face. If it's playful banter, he doesn't mind so much, but he does not enjoy being teased in the least. Seems to get depressed from time to time. Rarely smiles, but no one knows why.
History: Not much is known about Rufus except that he's from Valera. A few years before the Dead Eye rumors arose, he was making a living by working as a mercenary. It was easy for him because he was usually highly underestimated due to his height and girlish face. He's even killed for some government officials. Sometimes he had to resort to seducing his target, whom were usually always male. He was never adverse to killing women. He didn't believe in women being treated differently. Perhaps it was due to spite from frequently being mistaken for one, or maybe it was due to growing up in Valera, where nearly all of the women were unnaturally gorgeous but more than half were disgustingly vain.
Either way, he didn't see women as a separate case from men. His hand only stilled when it came to children. He once killed an official who wanted to kill a child who would soon take the throne as emperor of Erabyss. He didn't get paid, but the satisfaction was enough and he ended up stealing from the man in the end.
Rufus, who obviously didn't care for gender, once had a lover. His lover was a man named Hitoshi, who once served alongside him on a pirate ship. He's long dead now and is remembered by no one but Rufus himself. Since then he's lain with both men and women alike but none could ever capture his heart as Hitoshi did.
Name: Nemo (Latin for "no one")
Special Talents/Abilities: Ability to shape-shift; wonderful actress
Personality: Very timid. She listens to Hades out of fear not respect. She'll trick, deceive, lay with, kill, etc. anyone if Hades tells her to. She may act well but she's a coward at heart.
History: Nemo was a mermaid who was taken in by Hades at a very young age. He never showed her love, but be made her amphibious to use her for his own gain whether it be to cause Havoc in Mundus or to use her for his pleasure. She was actually the one to start the rumor about Dead Eye. She was in the shape of a simple male commoner.
Nemo wants nothing more than to be free of his grasp. She hasn't killed herself because he has promised her freedom after one century of service. Mermaids lived for nearly a thousand years, so she can only pray that he'll keep to his word.

ah, Times like this i wish there wasn't a character limit. I'm quite good at handling multiple characters... Still, Cnt complain i guess.
Im on Team Evil! Are you?

If you're really able to handle it, I'll increase the character limit to 4.
Origin: Drydogan Islands
Appearance: Stands at 5'9", Xanthos has incredibly tan skin with long, curly brown hair and brown eyes. He wears a green, sleeveless tunic, loose fitting cotton pants, and no shoes. He is an incredibly handsome young man, though he isn't very lucky with the ladies. Xanthos is obsessed with dental care, so his teeth are sparkling white. It isn't unusual to see Xanthos with a black eye or large bruise somewhere visible because of his constant fight-picking. He's somehow managed to avoid any scars.
Weapon(s): Three swords. Two scimitars swords sit, crossed in an X on his back. A short sword sits on the small of his back.
Special Talents/Abilities: Sword fighting, picking fights/pushing buttons, reading maps, plotting courses, cooking, pick-pocketing, stealthy!
Ship: The Blackwinged Angel
Position: Deck hand/cook/map reader (though he's called a "map-diviner")
Personality: He's a bit of a loose cannon, and enjoys a good fight at least once a day. He's a good kid to have your side when you're in a tough spot or need a good fighter. He's a loud mouth who's good at pushing people's buttons. Despite his fondness for picking fights, Xanthos is still a fairly likeable kid. His behavior can be chalked up to his street-life-youth and lack of parents.
History: Xanthos was abandoned by his parents on Dydogan Islands as a young child for unknown reasons. One morning he got up, found his home empty, and his parents never returned. Around five, he started his life as a street urchin and pick-pocket, and found that he hand a knack for it. To this day, he's never been thrown in jail for stealing. He's spent the night in jail for starting fights with drunks at the local pubs, but the local law enforcement tend to ignore his activities, often rolling their eyes at him.
He never had any formal schooling, but he taught himself how to read and write around eight or nine. During the same time, he took up training swordsmanship with a local master named Zeno. He lived in the local library some days, reading. It was also during this time that Xanthos realizes he had an affinity for reading maps and plotting courses. He liked to sit at the table for hours, just figuring out which plot would be easiest vs. the longest. At twelve, he struck up a small business offering advice to ship captains about the routes they should take based on length, ease, and weather.
Two years ago, Xanthos joined up with Noir's pirate crew. He'd read of Captain Noir in books, and when the infamous pirate captain docked at Dydogan Islands, on Xanthos' home island no less, the fourteen year old sought him out. He'd always wanted to become a pirate, but he didn't want to be part of just any pirate crew. He only wanted to be part of The Blackwinged Angel. At first, Noir denied his request, almost laughing off the kid. But Xanthos stood his ground and listed off his abilities. The captain was intrigued by the youth's persitence, so he asked his name. When Xanthos told him, Noir about fell out of his seat. Rumors of Xanthos - the professional, kid map-diviner - had circulated amongst the pirates, but until then, Noir had just thought them rumors. After a few minor questions, Noir decided to take Xanthos aboard.
Over the two years he's been aboard Noir's ship, Xanthos has learned to restrain himself from starting fights with his crewmates. The first six months he was aboard, Noir punished Xanthos' behavior with sparring matches, in which he would beat the crude out of the kid. Though damned good with a sword, Xanthos has never been good at hand-to-hand combat, though he's been improving slowly.
((I hope that's ok @Esiphas ! I didn't want to control what happened between him an Noir too much >< If you'd like me to fix something, just let me know, I'm more than happy! But I figured that sounded enough like Noir...))

@Shobu Thanks, I can certainly handle it. I have run 8 characters without breaking a sweat before, and a Solo man D&D campaign (4 characters), so I can handle 4 online Characters. I'll get on him.
@pleasant_disorder Yea, thats fine. Its sounds like him, And I like the sound of this kid. Noir might challenge him to a fight herre and there for fun btw. Seeing as Haley would Trounce him, he'd need someone with good skill to fight.
Name: Ryko ''The Hydra'' Honest
Origin: Chaos Island
Wears a long Navy Blue Coat which hides his Body. If he ever takes it off (He actually sleeps in it) he will reveal a Scar ridden body
Weapon(s): Hides an almost immesuarble number of Knives in his coat, in addition to the Knives and Shortswords on his belt and back.
Special Talents/Abilities: Sword-fighting, Story telling,
Ship: None yet, But I will be on The Red Sapphire (If thats ok)
Position: Story-Teller, Gunner, Boarding action fighter
Personality: A cheerful, INcredibly Mature person, who speaks as though he is much older. Agile, Likeable enough but rather abrasive at points. Doesnt drink often, despite his near enough immunity to getting hammered. He follows orders to the best of his abiltys.
History: Ryko was born into chaos- as are alot of people. His parents were slaughtered before he was even properly separated from his mother, and he only survived due to the complete negligence of the killers- they failed to notice the baby in the dark of the night. He survived the nigh and come morning he was found, and taken into care. he was a rather violent child, beating many a fellow Orphan up, though oddly the only people he really hurt were bullies themselves, often defending weaker orphans.
When he was old enough to leave the orphanage, he signed up to the local law enforcment, and hunted down the gang that killed his impairment. He beat them down too, and would have killed them if not for his senior officers intervention. Sensing Ryko's anquish, he began to mentor him in a specialist fightingstyle which involved the use of hundreds of Daggers and swords, sacrificing weapons as you go. Ryko learned quickly, amstering it in a year and a half, and entered an underworld fighting tournament, coming out on top and earning himself his Title, ''The Hydra''. However, He voluntarily resigned, and joined a privateer ship where he would be able to focus his violence on deserving victims. However, he was captured and used as a slve by a pirate captain.
Leading a revolt, Ryko slew the captain in single combat. He lead the crew to shore, barely making it to Shore. Now he finds himself in a pirate haven, and looking for work- respectable or otherwise.

Harry Angus Mortimer Maxwell Ebony Rackfall the Third
Everyone just calls him Hammer.
Not quite as short as the image shows, he is in fact about 6'6". Hammer does however have a healthy weight to him. Sorry...I mean he is huge. It is a mix of muscle gained from his profession and fat from his lifestyle. His beard is dark and far less controlled. His eyes continue this theme, being a dark brown themselves.
His clothes are made from tough and durable material and are in fact handmade, since his size it not exactly common. He hold great pride in them.
(Yea he has changed a lot since becoming a Pirate hasn't he?)
Sledgehammer called 'Dorothy'
DRINKING!!! - Needs no Explaination.
Carpentry - Skilled Carpenter. Can fix most problems a ship may have. Good at maintenance with weapons. Was involved in the construction of at least two ship. Can do even while drunk.
Strong - A lot of his size is muscle gain through his work. Can grample with most and come out top. Even when drunk.
Trade - A little Out of chararcter but he was a former Island Major and so knows his way around dealing and haggling. Best when drunk.
Hammer is the kind of person you can't put down. No matter what event has came his way he bounces right back into the flow. A bright person, despite his problems with alcohol, he puts 110% percent into all his does.
Never quiet. Never!
To sum up at lot in his own words,
"Why live for tomorrow? It never arrives. Live for today. It is endless."
Despite what some people think he is still a good person. He would never act with violence unless it was needed. He treats everyone the same, even if that is the captain or a begger. But does have a tendency to forget himself.
The start. Let's begin there. Harry wasn't exactly the brute he is now. In fact he was a major of a small island. There wasn't much on the island besides a town, which was a port, and a mix of farms. Harry had a comfortable life on the island. He wasn't married but was not bothered by it. Security was provided by Erabyss. Since the islands were sheltered by it. Trade was rich. So money wasn't a big thing for him. Weather was fine too. All in all it was perfect.
Which meant it was boring.
Harry was about 25 when he decided to leave. Feeling restless he left his post to a more capable hand and took of on a local merchant ship to see more of the world. What he clashed with was far from what he thought would exist. Thieves, Pirates and Storms. The whim of the Gods was fickle. It was far from the peaceful land he had left. But it was perfect. The money he took began to dwindle away, lost to different things. So Harry took up carpentry. Why not? It was far more involving then writing pointless letters. So that is how he came about his profession. It is also where his nickname first appeared. No one could be bothered to remember his full title.
As for becoming a Pirate. That was a bit darker. In his travels Harry had made a couple of bad choices. Though he won't admit it, he fell into a bad crowd. With it came his addiction. Drink. Not uncommon in this age, it really changed him. With it life just seemed more and more interesting. While drunk even thing once boring became fascinating. But with it came debt. Debt that he struggled with. And of course that meant he would turn to the drink more. A horrid cycle.
But this was Hammer. With a roar (and a few broken bones) he managed to get enough money to pay of a lot of his debt. Still owing one or two people he makes his money now through pirating. He doesn't remember the night he made that choice. But who cares? Hammer would only look forwards. He wasn't immortal he couldn't waste time. His current Captain took him on through recommendation and thought he had taken a bit to get use to he is a good person and skill at what he does. And if you keep a drink in his hand he is more then happy to do any job.
OOC: @Esiphas any chance you need a carpenter my good friend. Comes highly recommended from the local barman
ooc- If you aproove yourself, yea i'll take him on. You'll have to 'convince' Noir.
Im on Team Evil! Are you?
Join Team evil Today! We're Always Hiring!
@pleasant_disorder Excellent! I would like a bit more description in his appearance but I like him a lot! We need some youngins! Approved! Welcome aboard the RP!
@Esiphas I'm impressed, but I'll be even more impressed when I see this skill in action! Approved! Yay! Finally have a man on the Red Sapphire! Thought I was going to have to filled those slots with NPCs. ^_^ Thanks Essy (may I call you that?)
@Valkarma Aahaha! An acronym that spells out Hammer. Love it. This was the kind of guy we were missing. You definitely exceeded my expectations of your carpenter! Kudos!
I don't know where to put Rufus. I would put him on the Star Wind *cough* @Hollow Ichigo *cough* but I'd need the permission of its captain, who has not posed yet. I'm anxious and I miss him!
@Esiphas I was hoping to have him already a crew member. Not someone to be picked up right away, that is Jace's thing. I just wanted your approval first rather then drop him on you.
Oh everyone here is my third Character and special Co-GM one.
Welcome back old friend.
I am going to enjoy Roleplaying this guy when I get the chance.
He is refered to as male.
The Nightmares of Gods
Has none. He is but thought and intent given freedom.
Body Snatcher - Thanatos has no true form and steals the bodies of anything that has eyes. Alive, undead or inhuman. By gazing into anothers' eyes he enters their body and takes control. Once within their body he gains all memories and knowledge they possess, as well as full access to any skills they have. No matter the form he has he may speak to anyone through their minds. It does have restrictions:
1. He can never control a God, nor those given a Gods direct blessing.
2. Because Humans have been gifted with Free Will he can only steal the body of a human who gives him permission.
3. If his hosts dies he is forced into the nearest body that does not break any of the above rules.
4. He must reveal his true eyes to perform the theft. His true eyes are a sick yellow with pupils shaped as jagged spirals. They are the closest none Gods get to his true form.
5. He must hold the gaze for at least 5 seconds.
6. If he leaves a host, not because of their death, they will have no memory of any actions performed while he was in control. Other then that they are perfectly fine.
(Note: If a human has given him permission once he does not need it again if he wants to re-possess them. You have been warned.)
Twisted. Twisted and wrong. And mad. Mad from an eternity of existance. His personality can no longer be pinned down. One moment he will think things through, the next he will butcher those in the way. To plot his path is to be entangled in it's webs.
He doesn't care about any that isn't his master. Which means everyone but Hades. Imagine the worse and he will have performed it.
He is at conflict with even himself. But no matter what the calling he will perform.
What more can be said about the mind of a entity created from Nightmares of Gods?
A creation from some of the first days of Hades existance, Thanatos was made to be Hades's messager and his puppet controller. There were no restrictions on where he could go and little he could not possess to do so. He was perfect. Hades was not a fool though and in his creation laid down important rules. The end result was something only the Gods could truly understand and see, and they were repulsed and impressed in equal measure.
To Hades he is a perfect tool. Loyal beyond reason, with technical immortality and little restrictions; Thanatos was as he was made to be. Hades' eye on the human realm. If one looks close enough he has been there at all moments of great historic importance. Those times a Commander acts out of character and send his men to die. When a King becomes cold and leads his nation in cruelty. Or even when a lover turns their back on those they once cared for. Some of those moments can be attributed to him. All leading to something in Hades advantage. However he has not always been successful. For all Gods play these games and play them well. But he has had a presence.
Now he is sent out again. A sign that something is to begin.
@~Shobu~ I know you already approved him, but I went ahead and added a little more about his appearance. It's hard to say more because he just looks like your regular ole crew member. I'm glad you like the character!
@Esiphas Feel free to have Noir knock him around whenever. Noir's the captain and Xanthos has a deep-seeded respect for him. He'll take a beating from his captain any day. Although, as the rp progresses, I'll probably have him get better with hand-to-hand combat, so he might give Noir a run for his money in the future
@Valkarma I fear Thanatos.

I would like to join! I should have a profile up today or tomorrow, depending on how I feel (since I'm currently sick). I can be whatever you need me to be! If you don't need any certain roles, well.. I'm sure I'll figure something out.
A human bitten by pureblood vampires turn into vampires themselves. When that happens, there can be only one of two results, Their blood becomes toxic and die, or slowly suffering the pain of transforming into a vampire. Other vampires don't possess this dark power that purebloods have. I respect his strength of will, he was only a human, yet he resisted the powerful vampire instinct for four years. ~ Kaname Kuran,
@~Shobu~ I decided to make another character.
Name: Akantha the Rose Thorned Pirate
Appearance: Standing at 6' 2", the tan Akantha towers over most of her crewmates. She has thick, curly, blond hair cut into an afro and sparkling green-flecked, blue eyes that match the color of the ocean. She dawns a white doctor's jacket that goes down to her knees, and underneath her jacket she wears a black tube top, black mini-skirt, and thigh high, black leather boots. There is always a stethoscope hanging around her neck.
Weapon(s): Acupuncture needles and throwing knives
Special Talents/Abilities: knife throwing, seduction, medical-related problems
Ship: Star Wind (as long as @Hollow Ichigo is ok with it)
Personality: Akantha is a drunk and loves her rum as well as a good, stout ale. Drinking does not appear to affect her ability to work or reason. In fact, she works better under the influence and remains sharp as a tack. As with most drunks, she's a loud mouth and often says things most people wouldn't, which can get her in trouble sometimes. She's called Akantha the Rose Thorned Pirate for two reasons. Her name is Greek for "thorn" and she's incredibly beautiful, but also because although she is incredibly beautiful, she will not hesitate to throw a knife at someone pushing her buttons, though normally this only happens when she's sober.
There is a second side to her that most people never want to see: her sober side. When sober, Akantha is incredibly hard to get along with. She's moody, blubbering one moment, then biting your head off the next for absolutely nothing. During these times of sobriety, Akantha refuses to see anyone because, according to her, "I'll kill them."
History: As a Greecian, Akantha learned the ways of medicine through her father, a well respected Greek doctor Jason the God Healer. Her mother died in childbirth, and when Akantha was thirteen her father remarried to a woman that Akantha despised. Once their marriage was finalized, her step-mother had Jason agree to marry off his daughter to the highly respected political figure, Leander. Akantha agreed to the marriage and went to live with the Leander for a period of time.
After four years of marriage and no children, Leander threw her out on the streets, claiming that Akantha's barren womb was attributed to adultery. Leander had no evidence, but people believed him because he was their political leader. During this time in her life, Akantha took up drinking and found her life to be much more pleasant under the influence. To make money for her habit, she took up suturing and caring for wounded outlaws and pirates.
At a local bar, Akantha was approached by the Christopher, the captain of the Star Wind. He was peaceable, almost humble, when he requested Akantha to come aboard his ship. They worked out an agreement. Akantha was to receive a stipend of 50 silver pieces a month and an unlimited amount of alcohol. As long as Christopher kept up his end of the bargain, she would stay aboard the ship and work on any wounded that he sent to her; however, she was not to be involved in what she termed "the petty quarrels of you pirates". She has been aboard Christopher's ship for almost a full year now.
