man of steam, do you honestly believe that an actor will be required to build the new world? mechanics, engineers, electricians, chemists, etc
hey dude can you go over to that tree and act like you are cutting it down? how about acting like a mechanic and we can all pretend that the car you fixed is like new!!

my skills, welder, engineer, fabricator, electrician, painter, chippy, survivalist!

i sometimes think that a good blow out will cull all the dead wood that lives like a parasite leaving the rest of us to make a real differance, far too many people on this planet doing nothing jobs! i'm not looking forward to burrying you all tho, i guess my tractor and back hoe skills will come in handy. PS i can actually make the fuel to run these machines as well, i guess you can act like my gas attendant??

And an actor is fairly useful for things such as bluffing, theft... most crime really... espionage, escape, forgery, disguise... Every group needs someone like that!

Thank you.

If you think about it, if someone wants to get away and start a new life then they're not going to stop themselves from going because they don't have a mechanical skill.
Also, he's 18 so he is quite able to learn a new skill.

Ghia Direpond, are you interested in joining this RP or not?
Either way, I ask that you don't make posts like that you have just made here. This is meant to be so a group of people can have some fun and I'd rather not spoil it by having mods involved.

I've changed my character's intro to say that he relocated to Bristol and then signed on with the builder; it wouldn't do for teh ship to be simultaneously in Bristol and Dublin, now would it...

It certainly would be interesting...and possibly problematic....and most likely hilarious.

The ship could have stopped in Dublin on its way to Bristol but the change you've made is slightly simpler Cheesy

Though I have to say, time-travelling ships would have been an interesting way to start this all off Cheesy
