Hello all you fellow Steampunks!

I am deciding to open up my won RP here on Brass goggles. It is a military themed spacey type of game, much like a steampunk version of Battlestar Galactica (Which can be read on here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battlestar_Galactica_%282004_TV_series%29)

It will be set in he universe very similar to Space: 1889, and The Stars await, which is a RolePlay that I am currently involved in at this time.

The basis of the story is that I am the captain of the Iron Heavenly, a Military, special ops ship that works for the United Rulers for Peace, or URP, who are the alrgest and most powerful power in our Galaxy. It is set in the future, with both steampunk, deiselpunk, and pure Sci-Fi elements thrown in to the mix. I don't have the nuances of the Universe planned out yet, so I am relying on the players to create this as we go along, making the universe feel a little more personal.

Aboard the Iron Heavenly, I travel around with a trust crew (you) of varied soldiers and whatnot, using our wide array of skills to carry out missions both in space, and on far and distant planets. Faster that light travel was discovered, and makes fast travel across the universe easier, but takes a toll on the ships whenever it is used. If you would like to join, here is what I need from you.

I'll go ahead and venture a character.

Name: Cyrus Grey

Sex: Male

Age: Uncertain; looks anywhere between late 30s to early 50s.

Skills: sword, cutlass, saber, pistol, aetheric blaster, most firearms. Experienced gunner and navigator. Once commanded a small smuggling packet in the inner solar system. Plays the banjo well enough that it is not always annoying. Light to medium smithing.

Belongings: 50-caliber Remington backstrap revolver converted to fire cartridges; Heavy backsword cutlass, dirk, several small throwing knives; polled tomahawk ground down and rehafted from a CSA boarding axe. pistol, cutlass, dirk, knives and 'hawk and on belt-and-baldric harness that Cyrus habitually wears (if he wore it all on just a belt he'd constantly be losing his pants!); five-bracket fretless five-string banjo.

Disadvantages (For roleplaying purposes) : has many old acquaintances and friends, former comrades-in-arms. While it can also be an asset, this fact is just as often a curse, as he also has many enemies -- some mild, and some tenaciously mortal.

Appearance :


History: Former CSA Marine, former all cargoes smuggler within the inner solar system, was slightly famous for his exploits on the Jove Run. originally a farmer's son on Earth, but no records support this fact, as his hometown and the county seat were both flooded and destroyed when the surrounding valley was dammed and flooded to serve as a kind of moat against the Yankees during the war. He was away on his tour of duty at the time with his platoon aboard an ironclad stationed outside Hampton Roads.

Personality: Easygoing in times of relative peace, but tends to be ruthless and rather bloodthirsty in combat. Fiercly protective of his mates, but also can be quite brutal in dealing with onboard disputes. a veritable walking sea chest full of contradictions.

I want to get back into this all, and am a bit too out of touch with The Stars Await at this point, so here I am...

Name: Ronnie 'Rosebud' Archer

Sex: Male

Age: 22

Skills: Has connections in a few notable criminal organisations, but is unaffiliated with any one. He largely acts as a negotiator on behalf of clients wishing to deal with gangs. He is proficient in hand-to-hand combat (having gone through a bodyguard training course at 20) and can handle smaller firearms.

Belongings: Two standard military-issue blasters (laser weaponry), one of which has been modified so as to be concealed.

Disadvantages (For roleplaying purposes): Gang connections can run him into trouble as politics shift.

Appearance (You can use the Gaia online avatar maker for this if you want): (Will add model later)

History: Graduated from his local university with a degree in commerce, specialising in interplanetary trade at the age of 20. Gained work in a cargo hauling business that owned a small fleet of ships which moved unusual goods (things that couldn't be otherwise transported in mass-storage, but nothing illegal). Did a 3 month bodyguard training course after the business' owner was shot by a smuggler's boarding party. The owner's son took over the business and began moving goods for high-ups in local crime syndicates (initially legal, but eventually less so). It is through negotiations with these men that Ronnie gained most of his connections. Later in the year he quit the job and chose to be a full-time independent agent to negotiate between corporations and criminal organisations, which he had been doing on the side for the better part of a year by then.

Personality: Uses very roundabout, metaphorical language in his dealings, but is otherwise down-to-earth. In conducting business, he acts very slick, smooth and clever but is humble so as to remain on good terms with most people. Outside of his professional life he is honest and friendly.

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.

Here he be!

Sex: Male

Age: 28

Skills: Hand to hamd, is formally trained in Tae Kwon Do, navigation, piloting, mechanics, dabbles in medicine, quite charismatic, and good with energy weapons Smiley

Belingings: Small blaster that takes energy from the air and concentrates it in to one beam, a quarter staff, a small top hat that he wears when piloting, and reading glasses.

When his interspace colony was attacked by raiders, his father was on the outside of the ship doing repairs when hewas killed. He was hiding out in a storage room with his mother when a male raider entered, and approached nis mother. They both were saved by a military captain for the Federation. Corlon was six, and enrolled in the army at the age of18. From there he was praised a tactical genuis, and was soon promoted to Captain, and was given his ownship for a special forces team. He is now assembling his forces, and is prepared to start on his first mission.

Personality: Charismatic, and brave, and willing to help out anyone in need. Follows his mral compass, not his sueriors. Great pilot, and great in hand to hand combat. Protected of his friends, and will savrifice himself for them.

Can't wait to play! We just need one more person ( or character if you want two),and then I will post the game thread!

Appearance (You can use the Gaia online avatar maker for this if you want)

History:Born on one of the green moons of Saturn long considered the private hunting reserves of the gods Tessa grew up quick because if you didn't you became food for one creature or another but her heart was never in the battle like it was for her brothers and she moved on bouncing around. Some of the major military factions courted her because it was well known that even lesser people from the green moon were still tough as nails.  And that got her in to school and she almost got her self out of it a few times but still managed to pass with flying colors.

Personality:sarcastic and joking but can hold a grudge like anything if you cross her.

The adventure is up! I am taking the Iron Heavenly to Jupiter's moon first. If anyone else resides there, you can be picked up as well. Otherwise, just get prepared for my arrival. We should all be on the ship in a few days IRL, with a few time jumps, which I will announce here. Happy Playing!

Hmm. Interesting. We'll pick you up on Europa, but I do NOT tolerate the disrespectful lot. Dont expect Corlon to be so lenient towards ruthless hunters.  Cool

*an actual old guard's trick; basically, it involves preserving night vision by patching or simply closing one eye while looking at a light source, then closing or patching that eye and opening the one that was closed or patched when looking out into the darkness. Depth perception in my personal case tends to suffer, but I'm told by others that it can be corrected with practice.

The reference to Grey's previous encounter with a CSA Spec Ops operative refers to a takeover of Grey's Calliope that almost happened, but which Grey and the remnant of his crew at that time were able to prevent. The operative in question was a different one than Steamcowboy's character.

My mother had surgery (joint replacement reversal, or at least I think that's what it's called) this last week. She had to go to the emergency room saturday afternoon (yesterday, now) with high fever and apparenty an infection in the surgery site. She's being kept in ICU for observation, but the danger is over, we think. As far as I know I will be available to post, but if there are more complications I might have to do so more slowly than I would like, or maybe even put myself on hiatus (but probably not). Just a heads up, so to speak..
