Just reminding everyone that this is here.

I hadn't forgotten, but work got busy and I got sucked away. Let's keep plugging away, okay?

Especially you, Aika -- and that's an order. ^_^

Travel The Skies: 3 Air Pirates - Obsessed With Treasure?

Lawrence was not one to take chances. He had found himself in more and more questionable situations, however, he still tended to stray from those positions now that he had finished his temporary employment with the crew of the King of Rogues.

Vyse's determination was beginning to get irritating (moreso than it usually was); and he could see the figures descending upon him at nothing short of a human-pace. The jolly, old, fat Captain of the ship had stalled his crew to wave a hand to the two youngsters. It was strange to see two faces here - as the glaciers were usually void and barren and free of any life; except the occasional monsters that were scattered around this area.

Lawrence did not turn to glance back at them, and instead (perhaps in hopes that they would not see his face), he boarded the ship to prepare it for ascent.

"Ya' boys okay?" The Captain yelled to the duo atop the glacier, in a stout, gruff voice; weathered from the many skies he had seen. He had come to this land in search of the undiscovered moonstones that lay scattered beneath the ice. He was wondering, though, what two young boys were doing in these harsh parts...

Mood: curious.
OOC: Forgive my sudden inspiration -- this doesn't have to go anywhere, but I figured it'd be good practice, if nothing else.

IC:

"Vyse?" Pinta called from outside Vyse's room. "You there?"

"Go away, Pinta. I think I'm sick and I'm trying to sleep it off." Trying being the operative word, Vyse thought, as he rolled over and started staring at the other wall for a change of pace.

"Mail for you, sir. I'll just... slide it under the door, I guess." Suddenly, the door to Vyse's room swung open, giving Pinta a terrible scare. "Wah!"

"Mail?" Vyse demanded, taking the letter from the stricken delegate. "Is it from Aika?"

"I... I don't think so, Vyse -- a Valuan trade ship dropped it off, and it bears the Imperial Seal."

"So unless Enrique's taken Aika as a second wife, it's not from Aika." Vyse grinned.

Pinta stared at Vyse blankly.

After a few moments of tense silence, Vyse dismissed Pinta. "You know, I'm your captain. Least you could do is laugh at my jokes."

"You really need to get off this island, sir."

"Thank you, delegate, that will be all," Vyse grunted, retreating into his room. He opened the letter and withdrew the parchment inside. "Dear Vyse, Captain of the Blue Storm, Saviours of Valua... Saviours of Valua? Yuck. I'd better skip ahead. Hope things are well... yadda yadda... Moegi's fine... hm, I see we've already settled in to using the royal 'we'... the rest of your crewmen that abandoned you to work for me are happy....

"Whoa. Here we go."

Vyse, our reason for writing this letter is to ask you and your crew a favor. As you know, following the Valuan Civil War and the Battle of Soltis, Admiral Ramirez was banished to the ruins of the Purple Civilization. As you will remember, we thought it would be wise if he and Galcian were kept as far apart as possible. Only now we are concerned. Ramirez is a very resourceful human being, and we believe that it is in the best interests of Valua and the world that he be observed from time to time, in order to ensure that he is not planning escape... or worse. We would like to contract the Blue Storm to make these observations at regular intervals for the foreseeable future. Please advise the Crown as to whether or not you would be interested in accepting this contract.

In Gratitude as Eternal as Arcadia's Skies,

Emperor Enrique I of Valua


Vyse's heart leapt up his throat and displaced a good chunk of his brain. "PINTA!" he shouted, reopening the door to his chambers and watching the poor delegate tumble down the ramp outside to the ground. "Send a message to 'the Crown' telling him 'We're on our way.' And kindly inform the crew that we've got a real mission now, and that I'll be taking my freaking ship to do it, engines be damned."

On his back on the cobblestones, Pinta nodded weakly.

Vyse dashed down the ramp, vaulted the fallen delegate, and headed for Osman's shop. "Osman -- I need that crate of blankets we nabbed from those Ixa'takan slavers loaded onto the Albatross, and load up about an extra month's worth of food for one person. We're going to visit Ramirez, and I want to give him as few reasons as possible to try to kill us on sight."

Osman simply nodded. "And you will be paying for this how...?"

Vyse rolled his eyes. "Just put it on my personal tab. Enrique will have to reimburse me." And with that, he made for the Albatross.

A few days later, Vyse and his crew had moored the Albatross II on the outside of the dome beneath the Purple Civilization, and were preparing to find a way into the city proper.

"Bring the grapnels," Vyse ordered, pointing and waving. "We'll throw them across the empty space and put together a makeshift rope bridge. Then we'll haul the crates over using some kind of pulley system."

"Vyse," Kalifa interrupted, floating peacefully beside the captain, "are you certain this is wise? I sense that Ramirez is still very angry -- and very powerful."

Vyse nodded. "I know. It doesn't take a seer. But Enrique is right -- someone's got to make sure he's not plotting world conquest again with some long-forgotten artifact of the Purple Civilization. Besides, we've brought him supplies. Expecting him to be grateful is probably a little much, but at the very least we can hope for something short of a lethal welcome."

I've been slacking horribly as role of moderator, and for that, I apologize. However, I would like to establish a permanent method of posting for the RP in response to Aro's post.

Zoshak has mapped things out fairly well; All IC posts will be done in personal journals, with commenting allowed, though unexplained for the moment. However, if a character wishes for a post to be "private", or not be responded to by other players, it will be stated as such in the journal entry. The overarching plot will be posted in the community. Characters will write their own personal accounts regarding events in their journals.

However, at the moment, I am unsure as to how character-to-character interaction will occur. The system to be used isn't really tying together at the moment, but I'm working on it...


...This didn't make alot of sense.
I'll have to review that last post...

Right, so, I’ve got a few questions. Bear with me, I’ve never played in an lj-based rpg before ^^ so this is mostly all new to me. I have written a character journal before, but that was a private project- and the lj it’s on was never connected to any games.

One- I assume the character journals are (to them) handwritten deals that other characters wouldn’t be snooping in unless they managed to steal it. Is this right, or does Arcadia miraculously have internet access all of the sudden? Don’t laugh, I’ve seen it on more ridiculous fandoms- it’s largely why I never have joined or really looked into any LJ based games before this one.

Two- Kind of meshes with one- if they’re handwritten I assume we won’t be commenting IC on one another’s journals, right? I’ve seen it before >_> again, there’s many reasons I have never touched any LJ-based games. # Three meshes right into # Two...

Three- How does character-character interaction work on here? Will we be keeping it to the main forum or what? Not that I have to worry about that for a while, the way I understand it, unless anyone happens to have a tranquilizer gun laying around IC to shoot Ramirez with. ^_~ I imagine he would not be... pleased... to meet any of our valiant heroes, unless perhaps with his hands firmly around their collective necks. Still, I’m curious for future reference and all that jazz.

For example, are we probably going to be doing everything in past-tense in the character’s journals [example: Vyse talking about Aika trying to smack him with one of Polly’s rolling pins], or would things be played out in comments [example: Vyse and Aika actually playing out this armed chase in the comments somewhere, which can be “blogged” about later]?

Four- If characters -do- interact in comments, is there a certain format we should use or would that be up to each player? Again, this meshes in with # Three (my questions are all nice and lined up, woot). I prefer anything I write as happening “currently” to be third person past tense, written like a story, with at least six full sentences per shot. But if it’s up to each individual and everyone else wanted to do *action* -speech- or some such odd thing, I’d -probably- go with it for the sake of fluidity. Unless it was really obnoxious and full of one-liners, at which point everyone would have to just stfu and deal with my long-winded message-board style format. ;)

Mirf... I’m sure I’ll have more later- but those are the ones itching around in my head currently. I’m sure some of it hasn’t been decided on yet- but I’m just fine with waiting for answers.

Er, and just as a suggestion- maybe we should make another community for this type of garbage I keep spamming, and for people to join on, and etc cetera... if this is going to turn into a more IC-based comm? Like... eternal_arcadia_ooc or sommat? Shoot me if I’m coming up with the obvious, as I said; I’m a complete n00b to lj-rpgs.

Okay, here's the deal. We need to ramp up before we start any kind of serious plot, so here are some suggested openings for your characters. I hope I don't skip anyone.

Vyse: Most likely I am trying to keep my hands busy doing something other than flying to Sailor's Island every day to see if new bounties have been posted. In short, I have island fever something fierce.

Aika: Undoubtedly trying to get Vyse to loosen up and find a hobby. It's also possible that she's off-island doing her own thing (looking for Ramirez with Fina, helping Enrique in Valua, moving the last of her stuff off of Pirate Island), and is therefore part of Vyse's problem, rather than part of the solution.

Lawrence: Either, A)hanging around the Sailor's Island guild again, waiting for someone willing to pay his fee, or, B) having _found_ someone willing to pay his fee (perhaps another player's character...?), sailing the skies at the helm of a ship.

Ramirez: Probably lurking somewhere in ruined Valua, plotting his lord's jailbreak. Alternately, he is also in a Valuan prison, or banished the the Lands of Ice, or in a similarly bad situation.

Piastol: Either still in the process of redeeming herself, or finally at peace with herself and settled in with Doc and Maria.

These are just recommendations -- feel free to come up with your own ideas.

Thoughts, Tip?

I'd like to note that I'm also willing to help in whatever way I'm needed around here. I'm probably not much good for bouncing plot ideas off of, as I'm still fairly new to SoA in general- but the offer stands for whatever anyone needs me for regardless. :)

I would love to take up Ramirez if he is still needed... I'm very willing and able to go with whatever plot bits he'd be needed for.

The community profile!!! o.o What happened to it??

Mmm ;.;

I'd just thought you should know, I can make pretty good free user layouts with time, better than the one I'm using for Aika, and icons, banners whatever.

So I just thought I'd offer my services in the graphics department if anyone needs any help.

I could help with profile descriptions and layouts as well.

Anything I can do to help.

And on that note, I'll admit I'm a Vyse x Aika fan, but I won't make her jump all over him and stuff, I may just make her write secret notes to herself or something but I'll keep it marked as private (meaning everyone can read it but can't actually REPLY to it if you get what I mean).

I've also roleplayed in a Harry Potter community before, so I can help out with anyone who doesn't understand much.

Ok that's all <.<;

Subject:The Plot

Time:10:45 am.
Mood: contemplative.
Zoshak,
Just wondering if you've had any thoughts on the plot. I'm assuming the end of the old Skies will be the same, except Ramirez, Galacian, etc. escaped with their lives (Except for the Empress), and the old generals have been exiled with the exception of Belleza.

Now, the ending of Skies contained a brief summary of what each character set out to do after the adventure was over. Do we want to start the RP with the characters scattered across the world and let the players describe what each character has been doing for the last year? Just a thought so as to let people start writing something, but after that, maybe we can start the actual plot with Vyse needing to gather ye olde crew for some fancy new adventure/battle against evil hurrah.

Welcome to the newly developed Skies of Arcadia Roleplaying Community. As of yet, we have no plot established, but this will soon be changing.

However, if you wish to claim a character, please post a request that may be approved prior to your creating a character journal.

Once we have a basic plotline, we'll let you know, and we'll alert you as well as to how you can start working with your characters.

Thanks for joining, and enjoy the skies.
