This thread is purely to help those wishing to sign up to The New World RP.

A page with and up-to-date summary of the events of the RP so far can be found here:
http://editthis.info/brass_goggles/The_New_World#

As far as joining goes, we ask that you have a either RP experience, experience in the brass goggles forum or have been recommended by one of the other RP members that has been a part of the RP for a decent amount of time.

If you wish to join, make sure you have read the summary to the point where you understand what is happening and what has lead to that. Once you have done that, make a post in the OOC thread stating interest. Once accepted (unfortunately we may have to say no to some people in order to maintain the pace and nature of the RP) post a character profile like the example below (which is my character)

Name: Falko Hendrick Hoogenboome
Nationality: Dutch
Age: 19
Crimes: Unknown
Class: Working
Skill: Metalworking
Appearance: Medium height, plain black hair of short length, green eyes, no facial hair, no physical alterations.

We will also have to figure out how to introduce you to the RP, which is something I will PM you to discuss.

Sorry if it's complicated.

I think I should also mention I had a dream about this game, only Bailey was a woman...

I assure you, that incident in Singapore was all a misunderstanding.

Why hello sir! I wish to participate, I can promise that I'm rather...literate, though my sense of the term may differ greatly from what the dictionary says. This is a tentative profile, and if you should need me to change anything, that can be done easily!

Name: Alva Laughing Fox
Nationality: Lakota Plains Indian/Native American
Age: 22
Class: Working Middle-class
Skill: Linguist, mostly in Lakota, English and a bit of French and Spanish. Also fluent in parrot, seeing as she has a cockatoo named Edward. Knows how to fight and use a knife, though bows aren't out of the question (such a stereotype, but eh). Works as balloon repairer.
Appearance: Though Native Americans are known for their height and rather rough looking appearance, Alva is a small girl and is pixie-like in form and grace. Due to her mother's Swedish roots, she has a small and defined appearance, and large coffee brown eyes. Her skin is a light bronze, and her hair is frizzy and black. Underground dock boxing tournaments have left her with scarred knuckles and a nasty scratch across her cheek, she tells the blokes it was from a knife-fight with a Mexican. Of course, a Bostonian accent coming from such a woman usually turns them off anyways. Usually wears oversized boots and overalls, and thick leather gloves. She needs a new set of clothes, pay isn't nearly enough for such a thing though.

Welcome!
At present we're in New York.
Have you taken a look at the summary? (it is a little behind but not by much)

That I have, and now I just have to figure a way to get there. Unless you plan to stop by Boston again, then problem solved.
Though, anything else that's happened that I should know about?

We've fallen back on to New York city itself and have lost the sky docks. Bloodbath is essentially out. Fergus and Cenek won't be back for a few months. Rosie is essentially out but is still NPC'd by me.
Seeing as this battle still has a few pages left to go undoubtedly you're best off trying to slip your way into that.
PM me about it so we don't clog up this thread.

-Attempts to jump in as a sub-character hopefully towards the end of the sequence-

Name: Stanley Hobbs
Nationality: British
Age: 23
Class: Working
Skills: Mechanics, Lock picking
Appearence: Long brown hair, pony tail included along with a few strands of hair down each side of the face (curtains, if you will) to seperate the the fringe. He is not complete without his trademark stubble. He prefers a navy blue trench coat with brass fixtures. He carrys around a small telescope, that which his father left to him soon after his death.

Since he was a boy stanley has aspired to great things, he often dreams of a life updeck on his own skyship whilst another takes his place below in the engine rooms. A fan of tinkering, he is not afraid to get his hands oily and a life on the streets before hand has granted him certain skills to aid in his adventures.

Awesome.
Go straight in whenever you want. There's a whole ton of openings for characters at the moment.
For example:
You could be a survivor in Boston about to join Mark
You could be a citizen in North Carolina being evacuated
You could be someone in Nashville that my character runs into
You could be someone in Texas that Julius runs into
You could be a survivor in New York
All sorts!
You've probably one of the better times to join.
Figure out where you are and what you are doing a post away!

I'd love to take part, if that's okay. I'm a very experienced writer, however I've only done two or three roleplays, and nothing so structured as this.

name: Kyle Watson
nationality : Australian 
age: 18
class: Lower Middle
skills: In summary, exceedingly efficient in hand-to-hand combat, decent with a sword, extremely fast runner, basic airmanship (not command or control).

Startlingly quick on his feet, athletic enough to sprint faster and further than most other people. He has a reasonably light build but has undergone training in pugilism and fencing, as well as less formal lessons in uh, 'boxing' (of the back-alley, post-imbibing variety). He has no formal qualifications but spent some time on an airship as a cabin boy before he jumped ship in New York at age 15. In the last three years he's made a name for himself as a courier; reliable, fast and charitable. He's handy to have nearby in an engine room but could by no means fix anything by himself without instruction.

Appearance: Tall-ish, on the lean side of muscular, short hair that's usually windswept backwards. Wears a loose white shirt with the sleeves rolled up under a leather vest, with pinstriped slacks purposefully a few sizes too large for him tucked into leather boots that end around mid-calf. His apparel is designed to allow him to appear professional when engaging with a client (or a fine lady), but also gives him the freedom to run without tearing anything or becoming an unsightly, sweaty mess. When his job takes him off the streets and to the rooftops, he often dons a pair of black leather gloves to protect his hands, and depending on the day may wear a red scarf.


I was hoping to create a character in the current New York arc, and I'd love to have him end up with a set of mechanical wings like Ela's (I read the wiki). I know how annoying it can be to have somebody cannibalize your own work and devices though, so if that's not an option I'll find another avenue.

If the wings are a sticking point, You're welcome to use a military/ex-military 'airbike' like my character Arabella's (they're supposedly standard equip. in Virginia, so they'd probably be a factory-made item), same model, or not, or a similar machine, using same principles, or not. Basically, a steampunk version of the Star Wars speeder bikes. Just an idea.

Yeah I think the wings are a one-off kind of item that would have been custom-made by an individual inventor. Having the bike would definitely be plausible.

So would you be starting out in New York then?

Fair enough, I figured they would be a unique feature Smiley I'll probably go with an airbike then, but maybe not initially. He'd start out in New York delivering a package, maybe the parts that Ela needs? Is there enough of New York left to allow such a delivery?

I'd say no, it's basically rubble because of the bombing. There's a cluster of buildings around Rally Point Hudson but that's al really.

PM me so we can figure out the specifics of where you are and what you're doing and we won;t clutter up this thread Smiley

Name: Isabell Magdalene
Nationality: Cuban
Age:28
Crimes: None other than those of circumstance.
Class: Working
Skill: Weaving, airship repair and upkeep
Appearance: Small and thin with dark hair that looks like it was hacked off near the neck with a knife, light tan skin and green eyes that seem to be continually looking for something.   Mostly plain and nondescript except for her hands that she often keeps gloved.  Her fingers are elongated and through-ly double jointed from working on intricate looms in vast factories since she was five.

Born in rural Cuba child of a poor mother with far too many mouths to feed and a drunkard english father who worked at the sugar plantation. Isa went to work as soon as she was able to help her family this lead to spending her formative years squeezing in to machinery to run repairs at the mill.  That and malnutrition lead to a wiry form that let her keep her job long after others were too large.  After saving for many years she booked passage on a ship to America hoping for a new life and she got one but not the one she wanted.  The ship she was on was taken by pirates who mistaking her for a young boy offered her a simple choice work for them or die. She took the work as grueling and backbreaking as it was and survived.

Easiest way to get involved is in the ruins of New York where you can say you join a privaterr's crew or end up in the new military or whatever comes to mind!

Anywhere in America would be fine for a starting point really, the eastern seaboard and north west states are fairly ruined so bear that in mind if you decide to start in either of those locations.

If it's pirates around New York though they would likely only hit the outskirts for looting as further in there's a damn load of military ships floating about.

I leave it in your good hands to decide how mad and desperate Captain Jacobi is but I will say any refugee camps and small ships will look good to a bunch of hungry pirates.  I have no plans for the Lime Cutter other then to give Isabell an easy way in so do with it what you will.

I'm thinking of slipping into the Ruins of New York, possibly on the outskirts of the city supplying local populace with food stuffs he's hunted down on beyond the city limits, something low life pirates would want.

Also a slight edit to my character.
