AN: This is the current ongoing RP I have with Jamie. I’m transcribing all the RPs I have with her from the forums onto here so she can reply easier. Hope you enjoy. Also NOTE TO JAMIE I will be posting the recent posts in the comments section of each respective RP so we can go ahead and RP together without waiting on my slow movements in transcribing. Thanks!
Maeeverglow: QUOTE: OT: Ok, I’ve got a little bit of an idea where we can go with this story if you’re interested. I think the focus was too much on the whole pirate/ninja concept of it (I think I was just aiming to start an RP under that popular notion and didn’t really think about it too much) and not enough on the fact that there was a war happening all around them. So, here’s what I suggest…
There can be any kind of people (even elves and dwarves, etc.) to bring notice upon. Nathaniel is just going to be a prince who ran away from home, he’s also not going to be in love with Ember (he might have feelings for her at one point that might lead to love but I’m honestly not seeing it as a future thing for them). Ember is going to be the daughter of a Pirate Captain who when banking his ship on an island stumbled upon a village within the ninja order and met his future wife and Ember’s mother. Technically Ember was brought up in the ninja village but her father always took her out to study the sea and to see the ships which is why she connects with it moreso than being part of the ninja order.
Ember decides to flee home in hopes to prove to her family that she can make it on her own on the sea (she’s being a rebellious teenager). The family sends others out to find her including Ritzu, a ninja from the village and someone who’s always had an attraction to the girl but would never admit it. The whole storyline with his sister being what’s her face will definitely still be there. I still need to skim through the replies fully and build up the bios again but that is what I’m thinking right now.
I figure we have the storyline of the group coming together under unlikely circumstances, Nathaniel has access to a ship which turns out to be stolen from his kingdom, Ember wants to sail the sea like her father did, Ritzu wants to return Ember to their people and keep her safe. What about your characters? What do you think would bring them into the group? Like what catalyst can bring them all together?
OT: Ok, I’m going to go ahead and start and you let me know if you want me to change this in any way. I believe we’re going for the idea that Ember ran away from home to prove she can make it on the sea. She and Joan meet after hearing about Ember wanting to go out to see. The girls accidently do something and get chased where they hide out on a ship in the harbor away from the docks and it turns out to be Nathaniel’s. Ritzu will eventually appear to come after them. And Slither and whats her face (i went blank on her name sorry D:) are in town looking for Nathaniel who ran away from home as well. Hopefully this one won’t get too crazy on us. I’m excited to restart and redo the storyline a bit
Hair: Deep chocolate brown, curly and grown to her upper back.
Eyes: Crystal Blue
Bio: Ember is the daughter of a pirate captain who ventured to an island and fell in love with a woman of the ninja order. She loves her parents dearly but mostly relates to her father since he had always taken her to the sea to study its brilliance. She grew up on his stories and eventually decided she wanted a life similar to it. When she gets into a fight about her still being a child with her parents, she ran away from home to seek out a job on a ship and prove that she was grown up and able to live her life on the sea.
Hair: Blonde hair braided, his hair is above the shoulders but still considered long.
Eyes: Dark Blue
Bio: A runaway prince who’s trying to hide from his duties to his family and to his people. He doesn’t want anything to do with his family’s involvement in the war and chose to sail away to somewhere he could find peace. Unfortunately, it wasn’t long before he found out he was being chased under the order of his father. He is slightly cowardly in the face of danger but he grows into the prince he is after joining together with his new band of friends.
/The moon shone high above the port city as Ember stumbled out of the treeline, her eyes wide at the sight of the reflection on the sea. It was so beautiful and the salty air brought back memories of when she was a little girl on her father’s ship. She had made it to Harport safe and sound and thankfully it seemed as if no one was after her yet/
/Ember/: There’s not a moment to lose though. I gotta hurry or Mom and Dad are gonna be right on my tail and they’ll drag me on back without even listening to what I’d have to say.
/With a nod, she stepped forward towards the gates, presenting her paperwork to the gatemaster to enter town. The man stared at her information before lifting a brow, looking back at her with a questionable glance/
/Guard/: A bit young to be out late all on your own? I see you’re from the Nokomo village but even they have curfews I assume.
/Ember didn’t miss a beat. She had been working out the details since she had darted from her village deep in the foliage of the island/
/Ember/: I hit a bit of a stumble on the way here today and that’s why I’m out after nightfall. I was going to race right to the inn for the evening when I get into town. Sorry about all this.
/The man glanced her over again but decided it best to admit her. After all, she was just a kid from a village out in the forest and definitely not a stranger to their city. So he decided to allow her through/
/Ember/: Thank you sir!
/The girl then took off towards the tavern inn, her grin wide as she prepared herself for what she had to do. All the visiting sailors were there drinking to their hearts content and musing along with stories of the sea. She was going to hunt that tavern for a job on a ship. She was going to start living her life on the sea…against her parent’s wishes/
