Adventures in Massetiah (steam punk airship exploration)

Post by Zephyr on Tue Jan 31, 2017 3:09 pm

So this is the story thread for my upcoming story, Adventures in Massetiah. Massetiah is a fantastical world filled with many wondrous sites, creatures, and peoples. The story will focus on a crew of explorers aboard the airship Zephyr, a small exploration vessel as they go around the world, documenting new discoveries and having adventures. The crew is made up of Royalis, the humans of this world. From their province of Veridan in the north pole (a nation on the north pole, enclosed by an impassible mountain range, and warmed by underground volcanic hot springs, it's a lush forest nation in the midst of the arctic cold, and until recently, has been closed off from the rest of the world when advances in airship technology has made travel possible). Their chief mission is to explore the new world, and represent the Royalis race.

There are roles that need to be filled by our characters, ofc. And I'll be taking the roles of captain and navigator for mine. Others include engineer, cook, doctor, hunter/gunner, etc. 

any questions, concerns, comments? I'll be more than happy to answer any worldbuilding questions you guys have

Razor - I actually really like that idea, go for it, but try to keep it humanoid

Wigs - You can give your char a bow/arrow, crossbow, or any type of steam punky weapon gadget thing you think would be cool

arc - keep in mind victorian-era level of medicine, but there are like herbs and shit with advanced medical properties

Name: 
Age:
Gender: 
Class: (their role on the ship) 
Gear: (their items/tools/weapons they use regularly)
Hairstyle/color: 
Skin tone:
Basic Appearance:
Clothing:
Personality: 
Background:


Name: Scarlet LaShelle
Age: 25
Gender: Female
Class: Captain
Gear: Miniature spyglass, an officer's cutlass with a golden hilt
Hairstyle/color: Long curly red hair
Skin tone: Pale
Basic Appearance: Tall, slender, freckled. A fair bit of muscle tone
Clothing: White blouse with a mahogany corset, and a long black overcoat. Dark green tight pants and black knee-high boots
Personality: Confident, fierce, and intelligent. Is suited for more militaristic leadership roles, but time will tell if she can handle a more peaceful, scientific role. 
Background: Comes from a prestigious family of captains and other military leaders, and was personally assigned to the Zephyr by the Queen, when Scarlet was straight out of the Royal Academy.

Name: Gerard Vale
Age: 19
Gender: Male
Class: Navigator/pilot
Gear: spyglass, compass, pocketwatch, maps(one of Veridan, the rest are blank), scribing tools, and a rope, all kept in his trusty satchel 
Hairstyle/color: Short brown, wavy/windswept hair
Skin tone: Fair, a bit tanned
Basic Appearance: Lanky, skinny, but mildly handsome.
Clothing: A cream-colored shirt under a dark green vest, and brown slacks with black boots.
Personality: Mild-mannered, but naturally curious, intelligent, and adventurous. He is extremely excited to leave Veridan and begin his task to explore and map the world. 
Background: Coming from a middle-class family, he earned his way into the Royal Academy by being the best and brightest in his primary school. From there his aptitude landed him a place as navigator on the Zephyr, much to his parents' pride. 

Now the Royal Academy is the most prestigious university in Veridan, training the province's elite working class, and now most importantly, training members of the Royal Airship Navy, a corps of bright scientists and bold explorers eager to begin exploring the new world. Your characters don't have to be from the Academy, they can either be grizzled veterans or starry-eyed newbies.

Well of course, Victorian-era medicine. I don't imagine we'd be running into very many situations calling for much medicine though.
