New players are always welcome to the RPG. If you wish to join, simply PM me. Information on the plot and set up is located in the Sign Up and OOC threads.
One of our only dilemmas, now, at the beginning, is distinguishing between which ship your little guy is on.
EDIT: I recieved a better idea from FallenBabyDoll on this problem. If you hit Post Reply at the top of the page, the new page has an area for the post title right above the box for typing . Type the ship you are on there, for each post. If you have characters active on more than one ship, in that post clarify who is where like this:
Character's first name: Ship Name
For each character. Or you could just put at the top of the post. Whatever you prefer, so long as we know what ship you're on. Criminals do not have to specify a ship, so long as they are not actually on one of the ships.
All criminals, other than Kochab, post in red. Even criminals controlled by other players. If you are not controlling a criminal, do not use red for your character's color, please. If you are in control of a criminal, you may not control that criminal until I have posted his/her profile into the OOC thread.

This first page or so of the RPG is going to take place outside the ships. Both are docked at an air station on Earth, ready to take off. Further more, they are docked side-by-side. Alula and Vildiur are shacked up in the city where the ships are docked, still getting everything ready, mostly minor things. You guys are... where ever.
-- Orion --
Alula leaned back in her chair, and cocked her head to the side. She was reading the glowing screen in front of her.
"All members of the Bounty Ship, Orion:
We are scheduled to take off in two day's time. You are to be here with all luggage and equipment in the Lord Henry Air Station at noon, ready to go. Say your good byes to any family and friends. The Orion and Ursa Major will be leaving port at the same time. When everyone arrives, there will be a short debriefing of our first destination.
Welcome on board. I am looking forward to our time together.
Is what it read. The ticking of a key sent the message to all recipients.
She was still, staring at the screen for a moment before she sighed, stood up and stretched. Throwing on her coat, she walked slowly to a window, nearby, and leaned on the sill, looking out on the bustling city below her, filled with railways and vehicles traveling at break-neck speeds, hundreds of people crowding onto walkways and into buildings, and every sleek, polished skyscraper flashed countless images, advertisements and any number of other colorful videos. She looked up at the sky. She preferred the sky to the noisy people below. It was expansive, and even with all of the enormous buildings crowded around her, it seemed endless, open, and beautiful. The sun was overhead, blazing behind soft clouds that shielded it's heat from those below. Just as she was admiring the sky an airship zoomed overhead from one side of the skyline to another.
Proof for her, that her time was near. Today was a busy day. She still needed to get everything ready and she knew this very well. She snatched up a small billfold from the table and left the room, not bothering to lock the door behind her. There wasn't really anything she needed in that room, anyway. Yawning and sighing again, she shuffled down the hallway of the hotel, and stood in front of another door, with the numbers 2824 printed at the top, large and dark. She reached up and, without hesitating, began pounding on the door loudly.
"Vildiur!" She called through the door. "Let's go! I've got things to do! I can't wait for you all day!"
