Now there's an interesting concept... Smuggler's Moon definitely has a cook. I think I mentioned that in one of the "prologue" posts, in fact. *nods*
Flesh out the concept a bit, Jozan, and I'll plug you in.
That said, I think I've got enough interest, here, that we can likely get this thing started in the very near future (i.e. sooner than I had even hoped). I'll wait on the concept submissions, of course, and need to get another post or two up to get the ship into harbor at Freeport... but, once I've got that kind of thing in hand, I think I'll be more than happy to open the game thread up for posting.
This doesn't mean that recruitment is closed, though, folks. If you've got the interest, I've got the time to entertain new submissions. And, of course, if anyone has any questions in regards to creating characters, what sort of positions might be available on board the Smuggler's Moon, etc, I'm just a PM or a post away, hm?
Would you be willing to accept new-to-the-site players? Because if you are, I would like to play. An idea comes to me of Lyriandel, a young half-elf crewmember, who has run away from home with inflated dreams of plunder and adventure on the high seas, but has little idea the reality involved. My availability is such that I could post twice a week.
I'd love to have "newbies"... and your concept sounds like a great start to an interesting character. If you'd like to flesh it out a bit (i.e. a name, some sort of description and background, etc) and send that my way via PM or some such, we'll go from there. Welcome aboard, lass.
Okay... interest in this has, quite honestly, been overwhelming... got quite a few of you interested and the ship is filling up, so I need to get to work on the details, I suppose. Got some work to do around the house today but once I get that out of the way, I plan on adding/updating some things here and on the QA. So, stay tuned, swabbies... I'll be in touch with all of you before long.
...the turn out for this thing has been, quite honestly, mondo-overwhelming! I expected some interest, of course, but WOW!!! You Innmates are fantastically enthusiastic about this one, it seems. I'm humbled.
So, I've gotten nigh on a dozen replies to this thing with a willingness to take on characters from the "prologue" (Celeste as Saercyn Willow, T_O as Khash, and, of course, Meri as Davian) and several really solid and really interesting concepts that are in various stages of development (Steel's "Rope Runner," Lady Dark's "somewhat naive runaway," Haru's very intriguing character sketch, just to name a few)... That said, I'm going to lock things down, here, for the time being. I don't want this getting too huge to manage, after all.
This is not to say that recruitment is permanently closed, however. I'll still entertain concepts and submissions from anyone who is interested in playing but it might take a bit before we'll be able to work anyone else in the mix.
If you've gotten a nod from me, either here or via PM, saying that you're in, then you're in... If not, keep working those concepts and I'll be sure to keep you on the reserve list.
Again, thanks for all the interest and all the spectacular submissions and ideas, Innmates. You folks are the best!
Alrighty just finished getting caught up in the game thread and the Q&A thread. Both were extremely enjoyable reads, so thanks for that. I can't wait to begin contributing to it. I'm still very up in the air when it comes to my concept but perhaps I'll fire a few ideas your way Eol and see if we can't cook up something fun? Can't wait to get this game going!

If I can get some solid "basic" concepts (including names and something of a rough background) from those of you who have yet to shoot those my way, I think we can have this thing out on open water by the first of next week. (Jozan, Skye - still in? DB - shoot me those ideas and we'll finagle something, I'm sure. )
Glad that you're all as enthused about this as I am...
I'll be posting links to some maps in the QA this evening. Could also be convinced to e-mail them to you if you like... Just shoot me a PM and let me know if your e-mail in your profile is correct and I'll have it in your hot little hands before you can say "release the kraken!"
Well jozan, I have been right where you are now many a time and I commend your wisdom on bowing out before it got started. I'm sorry I won't have the opportunity to game with you but I look forward to the day we get to again, perhaps you may even be able to join this game somewhere down the road!
As for now my breath is bated in anticipation if our newest scallywag!
