or

I have one that suits the nature of the background although it is similar to Serenity

How about: Serendipity
Serendipity is when you find something that you were not expecting to find.

A suggestion, you don't have to like it.

Annoying google translator

I was thinking the chinse words for Mysterious Beauty but the translators aren't listening to me. (Make a very annoyed sound under her breath)

I also liked Chan Xiao and Hell's Angel. I like the other ones but those two are my favourite.

names ! what a challenge!

Mysterious Beauty is Xuan Zi. This implies a kind of dark mystery.

I like it. Plus I'm partial to Zan Zhan, Chan Xio, and definatly Al's suggestion of Rao Nei Yali. (what can I say? I like Mandarin)

Would you like us to post up little blurbs here, or somewhere else?

Xuan Zi. Good To know

Thanks for finding it.

I would guess we either post them here or in th Q&A when it's made but I'll wait for Al to confrim that.

Names

Well, I am not crazy about the ship being a Mandarin name. I would prefer something in English with like the name painted on the ship in Mandarin (sort of like on Serenity)

I do like the Serendipity; that is a good one.

I also like DESTINY


This would translate to: Destiny


Just my suggestion!

character

Hey guys I'm still around, just working on my character, I've been working full time this week again now that school's done and have been too busy to start putting ideas into action but I promise everything will be sorted this weekend and I'll have my character submitted to you Al. As for names I've always been partial to names from mythologies, one particular one I like is Gilgamesh. Gilgamesh was a king of Uruk (modern day Iraq or so) and some of the earliest writings surviving tell the mythology of his times. I'm basically open to anything though!

*ding!*

I'll buy that for a credit, Mysterion. Call her "Destiny". Those of us who salvaged her named her Yuan Fen, which translates to "Destiny that ties people together". Short version: Destiny.

Thoughts?

Quirk

All ships have a quirk - something unique about them that no matter of fixing will change. In Rocinante, when the ship goes to hard burn, there is a sound like a horse galloping across the length of the ship.

This ship has a strange quirk. It occasionally vents cool mist in certain areas. This mist swirls and disappears quickly and is no harm to anyone. However some of you have noted that the mist often looks like a lady dressed in white. A ghost? Well, no one believes in ghosts do they?

White mist...white ... ghost?

I'm going to be honest, I like both Destiny and Xuan Zi. Well, Yuan Fen or Xuan Zi, but, again, I like Mandarin.

Oooo.... I love the quirk! Is that something we incorperate into our RPing on our own, or is that an event that you determine, Alacrity?

LOVE the quirk

As for names I love Destiny and Xuan Zi. I am happy with either.

As for the quirk, I love it. I happen to be intrested in the supernatural so a huanted ship is cool.

Destiny it is then

I think Destiny wins as it have a good mandarin name as well and it suits the ship. I will call the game Destiny's Flight. I have some artwork I will use for emblems that you can pick from.

Celeste - The ship is as much a character in this game as are the crew so yes you may interact with the ship and its quirk if you wish, just don't get carried away. Later, I will even ask you to profile me with an NPC or two who would be people you'd know in the verse that you might call upon for help or advice.

Once I have all the characters in, I wil lpost them and we can flesh out the ship more. MMV has asked to convert the Brig into her room so she can be close to the engines. The rest of you will pick rooms, and you will all have to decide what to do with the ex-missile turret (game room, hydroponic garden, hanger for a hover bike, remove completely). Finally you will look at equipment for the ship (Grav suits, mule, hover mule, Infirmary, etc etc)
