Weston Hall stood at the helm and looked the the sky worriedly though several minutes ago he had been setting a new course for the ship to travel. The sky was grey and overcast, and the wind was beginning to howl around the ship, tossing it over the waves in an unsteady rhythm. Of course the Red Saber was in bad shape as it was after the gruesome battle that had just occurred. Luckily they had defeated the other crew, but with a price.

Wes could hear the ship groan menacingly as she was tossed about. He knew that there were men below deck, trying to fix the many small leaks that had been caused by lead cannonballs. They would have little time before the storm really began, and if their work wasn't finished, well, the ship would go down much easier than it should be able too. The wind howled, and Wes heard a shout from above, someone in the crow's nest was signaling that lighting had been spotted.

“Good lord," Wes muttered, looking back to the brewing disaster above. “Batten down the hatches!" He shouted to the crew, making his way towards the captain, who was in the lower-deck at the moment, reviewing ammunition stores. He kept his hands stretched out to keep his balance, for now the ship was tilting violently back and forth. He made his way below deck.

“Oy Fitzroy!" He called as a sudden lurch tossed him sideways and he had to steady himself on the musty wall. “If this storm is as bad as it looks, we'll be shark bait before you know it." He thought of the churning waters below the ship and wondered if the Red Saber could survive such a storm, especially after an attack.

Violet crushed the small flower using her pestle and mortar. She twisted it around, turing it into powder. She carefully added some water, making the water turn a orange color. She sniffed it. Violet sniffed it and nodded. She sat down beside one of the sick crew members. "Here, this'll help," She whispered and smiled kindly. The ship moved suddenly. The stuff moved around. They were on the second to last deck, right above the brig.

"AH!" Violet squeaked as the storm outside raged on. She repositioned the patients and wiped her forehead. It was raining a lot, but it was insanely humid. She sat down for a moment before returning to grinding herbs up to powder. She mixed almost all the powders together. "Colds, scurvy, hmm... this is numbing power," She talked to herself as the ship turned some more. She pushed against her work table to keep it from sliding.

"I can't work like this! What is going on out there?" She walked up a few flights of stairs, leaving the patients to sleep. As soon as she opened the hatch, she was doused by rain. 'AH!" She grabbed onto the slippery wall, bracing herself as she got to the top deck. The deck was slippery, she hunched down, holding onto the planks as the rain blinded her. Violet's hair whipped around wildly.

Violet stood up, shaky. She leaned up against one of the masts as the rain raged on. She ran towards the hatch, slipping. "AH!" She crawled across the floor of the deck. She closed the hatch and sat there for a moment. Violet peeked at the deck. She could her faint yells. "What was that?" She asked out loud.

#, as written by Lorawr
Kokira was stood at the helm of The Jewel as the storm raged across the sea, sending spray across the deck and causing havoc with the normally pristine ship that she ran. The Poison Jewel was her life, and everything that she lived for, as was her crew. She'd never had much of a family, but this ship was more than she could ever have hoped for. She was her pride and joy, and sailed lightly on the waves. The storm, though fierce, would do little to damage her proud ship.

Turning abruptly, Kokira strode along the deck with the rolling gait of a sailor well accustomed to the rise and fall of her ship on the waves, though her red hair flicked mindlessly in the breeze. As she walked, she called to her crew. "Look alive, ladies! It's just a squall! Get those sails down, and get someone up in the crow's nest! Get those hatches down! Quickly now, or we'll loose a sail" The storm was rough, and she knew of ships better than hers that had had suffered torn sails, or worse at the hands of a heavy breeze.

At her words, the crew around her seemed to jump to life, scrambling up into the rigging to her orders, and to tidy the ship. She wasn't in any rush to get anywhere - the hold was empty, and they'd just returned from port where they had sold their stolen merchandise to the highest bidder and made a hefty profit. So for now, at least, Kokira was content to simply sit the storm through.

Through the sound of the blowing wind and the rain striking the deck, Kokira could hear the surprised yell from the ships doctor. The captain turned quickly, and walked through the storm to the hatch where she had heard the sound from. Crouching, she came across Violet. "Doctor! Best get yourself below decks. We're suffering a bit of a squall, and there'll likely be some damage before the night's over. Be best if you got yourself in the dry, aye?" Kokira smiled warmly to show that she didn't mean to say that she doubted the doctors sailing abilities.

Re: The Poison Jewel

AAgh I thought that I replied, but apparently I didn't!!

Anywho, I haven't given up on this rp, so post away!

Re: The Poison Jewel

Alright time to give out some serious serious apologies here. I've been so busy with classes that I haven't been able to get on at all! I know I should've alerted you but with tests that I've had it's been very distracting and I haven't even been home because I've been staying at some buddies houses to study with them. Testing is all finished now though, thank the doughnut god, so I get some free time to myself at last! Aside from work..heh

Once again I greatly apologize..
Image


..If you'll still let me participate(that is if this roleplay hasn't died because of my absence and if that's so then I'm very very sorry) then I'll have Simon finished and a post in by tonight.

Re: The Poison Jewel

Good idea, I'll get right on it :)

Re: The Poison Jewel

Yo, didn't see any new stuff for a while, so i stopped checking in as often, didn't know the first post had gone up. Will get one up hopefully by the end of today!

Maybe you should send out a little heads up to everybody to tell them it has started fading?

Re: The Poison Jewel

I have made the first post!!

Of course school starts up a again on Wednesday for me..

Re: The Poison Jewel

So when will this RP start?

Re: The Poison Jewel

Sheesh that's annoying, I'll be crossing my fingers for you lol :)

Re: The Poison Jewel

I was nearly done writing up my history when I decided to take a nap and when my brother got home he unplugged the charger from my laptop and it died....then I started over again and finished it, when I clicked submit the roleplay site just went to the "Invalid Url" page....and wouldn't let me go back.

Someone really doesn't want me writing the history for my character...

Now that roleplaygateway is working again, time to finish it a third time! Yay! Now hopefully I won't have any problems this time. What a pain. :(

Re: The Poison Jewel

kk that works, sounds better than my idea.

Re: The Poison Jewel

The first post that I was going to make when it starts will explain how the ship goes down, the details can be sorted out as we go along, but basically the Red Saber was attacked, so the ship was in bad shape and then there was a bad storm. The first post that I make will elaborate a bit more.

Re: The Poison Jewel

Was there a distinct plan on how the Red Saber goes down or the general setting for the RP's start?

Or was it something you thought we would come up with when peeps joined?

Re: The Poison Jewel

Hmmm.. No I haven't heard from him, I think I'll PM him later today, bit I have field hockey tryouts right now.

Re: The Poison Jewel

Hey, I apologize for not having my character finished yet. All I've got left is the history but I've had a bunch of stuff on my hands for the past couple days and haven't had the time. I've got some stuff to do tomorrow too, but I'll do what I can to finish him up.

Aside from that, hey Sukai! Glad to see you finally made up your mind haha :)

One more thing though. Have you heard anything from that Mathew Littlepaw person, Fading? I noticed they haven't submitted a character yet and was wondering if they were still around or not..

I'm off to bed now. It's really late and I've got to get up early tomorrow so I need to sleep. Be on tomorrow! Good night everybody.

Re: The Poison Jewel

No that's great, thanks for taking interest, I'll put you in as first mate/ cook and then adjust it accordingly. :)

Re: The Poison Jewel

Sorry for jumping ahead, but since I had the free time I started on my character and I'm going to submit an incomplete profile. If all is well with him so far then I'll be able to finish him tomorrow after work.

Re: The Poison Jewel

Hi everyone. Karkastic begged me to take a look at this role play and I've decided to go ahead and make a character. I've been pretty busy with work and school though, so I don't guarantee that I'll be able to make a post everyday but I should be able to have time for at least one active role play.

As for the role I'll have a co-captain/cook for a male spot if that's alright by you, GM.

Re: The Poison Jewel

I just updated mine too, the pictures and other stuff lol

Re: The Poison Jewel

Come to think of it, I might add a few things to Keiga's personality too. It was 4 in the morning when I typed that up and I was pretty tired so it's a bit jumbled... ^^;

Re: The Poison Jewel

Okay, everyone can just let me know when they think that they are pretty much done and we will start :)

Re: The Poison Jewel

Char was submitted, though stuff like the history and personality may be subject to light change or expansion. For some reason I don't feel like the character is fleshed out all the way to my liking yet...
