Hehe, of course. I wouldn't want to just restart and leave everyone else behind.

okay, I'm still trying to figure out what happened to everyone...

Stella, Nigel, VAP, Skinner, MWBailer, and myself seem accounted for. Aryenne was have computer problems, Titus had to bow out. So, that leaves just JohnSix unaccounted for... did I miss him leaving the game? besides that there was Helios, but his role was temporary (as far as I can see)

so am I right about everything?

Nigel, Stella and I will pretty much always be here. MWBailey is gone and so is Titus. Aryenne and Skinner I don't know - we should at least wait for them to check in. JohnSix vanished awhile ago, but we also have Rowland now, who also hasn't been around.

-Clears throat after long silence- Hello, lads and ladies.

I have taken a hiatus off of BG recently due to enrolling for university and what not, and other nasty stresses that have made me despairingly depressed as of late.  Sad

I'd like to say I want to carry this on- I really do. But right now we've drifted so far from what I found fun about it. The Treasure! The hunting, the exploration, the adventure! All this chasing shadows of the boar and things... I just, I don't know. I've lost my interest in the direction this is all going. What happened to the lighthearted, pun-cracking swashbuckling Erol-Flynn-ness that we started off with?

I mean, doesn't anyone remember Ben's brilliant line "everyone stop being so conductive" when he electrified the train against the luddites? That had me rolling for weeks!!

So that's really why I've lost interest in this. I wish I hadn't. Essentially I haven't and I'll be alright to carry on because I love my character and most of the characters here.

Also, Aeryenne has a laptop of her own now, but she is of the same opinion.

It sounds dire, but we did think that, if we wanted to bow out of this rp that we'd bow out with a double hanging... >]

Firstly, I'm very glad to have you back. It's been too long.

As for your opinions... I actually have to agree. However, I'm hesitant to get super dictatorial with this thread. I can understand how others do want some intrigue. I really, really want to get this going again.

The only idea I can come up with is a compromise. How about we finish off the current plotline of killing off Shamus? That will basically end the shadow boar line.

I sort of envisioned this thread as a series of adventures rather than one overall plot, which I think it's becoming. No offense to anyone's ideas or contributions.

So... how about let's kill Shamus and go from there. I'm still interesting in finding a wrecked Royal Spanish Fleet in the Hebrides.  Wink

I've been here the whole time, Nigel :p as for posting, i think i can manage something... comic relief? I was kind of imagining Kat stumbling in half drunk and making a mess of everything...

and on the subject of where the game is going, to be honest, it isn't so much chasing the shadows as the seemingly long breaks that's bugging me. i mean, not the people not posting all the time part (that can actually get crazy), just that there is less action going on.

Hello, sorry to intrude, but I just recently signed up to the forum and being somewhat starved of roleplay after the long summer break from university I was looking for a good steampunk one to join.  I noticed this one and really like the concept, so I was wondering if it would be possible for me to join in.

Thanks for your time.

The more the merrier! We've had to leave some crew so more would be great. As long as you can commit (i.e. Don't randomly disappear, at least without warning.)

Get an idea for a character and post a bio. We are coming to Hadrian Atrium next and all sorts can be found there.

Awesome, cheers.  Commitment shouldn't be too much of an issue, I never like to abandon a roleplay I'm in.  Here's a character bio:

Name: Drake Harrigan

Age: 26

Occupation: Scavenger/treasure hunter

Appearance: About six foot tall and broad shouldered, with short, dark brown hair and light green eyes.  He sports a wide grin most of the time, and carries an impressive collection of scars from his various escapades, which he can easily be persuaded to show off after a few drinks.  He also has a tattoo of a longsword on his right forearm.  His work as a scavenger out in the desert has left him well muscled and heavily tanned.

Nationality: British, originally a Londoner

Weapon of choice: A large, heavily build custom Colt revolver, called Bloody Mary.  He's also quite fond of explosives, and normally carries a couple of grenades around for emergencies.  Anyone gets within punching distance during a fight and he'll resort to unrefined but pretty effective brawling.  And Drake brawls dirty.

Attire: Drake wears a heavy, battered old brown leather duster with a large canvas hood stitched onto the back of the collar, and covered in large brass buckles to hold it tight if a sandstorm hits.  Beneath this are a pair of thick black trousers with lots of pockets, held up by a pair of braces over an oil-stained old vest.  He doesn't bother putting a shirt over this, partly for convenience and partly because he thinks it makes him look more rugged and exciting.  He keeps a lot of bits and pieces of equipment in pouches slung from his belt and on the bandoleer across his chest, which also holds extra ammunition and a hunting knife.  He also sports a pair of heavy black work boots with deep treads, an old pair of flying goggles, heavy black leather gauntlets with metal plates sewn in and a grimy linen scarf that was probably a pale shade of yellow at some point in its life.

Background: Drake was born in London, and raised by his father after his mother was struck down by illness only weeks after his birth.  Prior to The Event his father was a historian and museum curator, and kept Drake enthralled with his stories of the past.  After the event though his father had to resort to factory work to make enough of a living to support them both, while Drake went off to become an apprentice mechanic on the remaining London steam trains.  They never lost their love of history though, and the young Drake always dreamed of escaping London to go on grand adventures in search of forgotten treasures.  Eventually working in the factory became too much for his father, and he became weak and ill, eventually perishing when Drake was only seventeen.  After this Drake sold the small apartment he and his father shared and took off with his father's few remaining books to go and make his way in the world.  After a shaky start he managed to make a few small but successful finds, building up enough money to rent a secure warehouse in a mostly forgotten part of London's ruins, where he currently stores the few finds he refuses to part with and his 'special construction project' that he works on when he's back in London.  For the past few years he's been looking for leads on an artifact known as The Lionheart, amidst his other hunts and scavenges, and he thinks he may be getting close to something big.



That all sound okay?

Actually, assuming the character's all okay and everything, since the other characters are all going after this treasure and Drake is kind of a treasure hunter, would it be alright if I brought him in while everyone's in the treasure store?

Also a couple of other questions if I may: is there anything in particular that I need to be aware of in the roleplay at the moment, and just what is the 7-7?

Sure - he could be someone else after the same treasure.

The 7-7 is the number and nickname of the rig the crew owns.

For other things... not much at the moment that won't be tied up soon. The next stop is a mission into Scotland to take down a warlord who's existence threatens Dear. (She is the real heir to the Anglian throne and the warlord figures he can get a reward for offing her)
