Description:
Revenge OOC
« on: August 25, 2018, 01:41:36 PM »
Hello all! Thought it would be easier to talk about possible plots and ongoing plots in one place...than all over the place.


 In the prologue we have Izak, Mel, Isa, and Pete. This is about 3 months before Isa is discharged, and also before the Miranda Broadcast goes out.  In summary, Isa and Mel are going to steal some ammunition, Izak is going to catch them, but the ammunition will go missing anyhow.  Pete stumbles his way onto the Revenge and kind of just....sits there until episode one begins where there's an emergency boat landing , and Mel reaches out to Isa to steal the boat back, and the crew is gathered.

Yay!

I'll get to work on finishing Jo's app while you do your prologue thing. Hell, maybe I'll get inspired and write a prologue for him (I won't, I'm lazy).

Edit: Aaand the app's done, to whom it may concern.

Actually, I could do some kind of an aside/prologue with Melody if we're still going with the original plan of Jo helping with the documentation or other stuff related to the ship stealing. If Lomari's down of course and it's not too weird to do a thread that takes place later than the one you've got going on right now. I'd like to get a feel for the character while the character creation is still fresh in my mind and I have some momentum going.

Bringing this over here from the Revenge thread in the RP Opportunities area, just to make brainstorming easier!

Quote
I posted a WIP of my tech specialist's backstory in case somebody wants to, idk, plot out how he ends up on the ship. There's some wiggle room between what I've written and where we are now, time-line wise. :)

Most of the other characters seem to have bonded over war experiences, but he doesn't have those. That could maybe make him a bit of an outsider. I think it'd make the most sense for him to be a new recruit, but he probably needs some kind of a connection to somebody because I reckon a spot on a pirate ship isn't something you just casually apply for like it's a regular job. :P

Quote
Melody could have enlisted his help somehow in keeping tabs on the ship that'll become the Revenge?

Quote
I'm considering tweaking his history so he does something more serious than just leak information. Maybe steal credits from the company's account and transfer them to the victims somehow? Would fit in with the Robin Hood theme and make him a bit more of a criminal.

Quote
I'm a little amused by the mental image of Melody and Isa discussing their pirating plans conspicuously enough for somebody to overhear them and interject :D

I don't think he's made that much of a name for himself. He likes to keep a profile and keep away from the spotlight. Word might get around certain circles though.

I think Lomari's suggestion of him working with Melody to keep tabs on the Revenge would work. Maybe he helps her acquire the documentation? Where's the ship located? He could be working somewhere close-by.

Maybe he's initially only hired to help with getting the ship, but when it's time for them to part ways he asks to join instead.

Based on what we wanted to do with it, I could probably have Melody start a thread. We've probably got a few options on where to start.

A) Melody finding/hiring him.
B) Melody working with him after already hiring him.
C) Melody getting the information from him about the ship, assuming they've already worked together etc. This would likely take place right before Mel contacts Isa about the ship and a little before the main thread begins.

Wachya think?

Hey, apologies if this is forward of me, but I talked to Lomari a little bit about the possibility of HOLGER joining up with the Revenge crew, so I suppose this is me formally asking if that sounds cool to everyone else. :D

Would love to have Holger aboard!

However, we have some things to discuss. With Helena taking her leave of the site we are currently without a Captain.

Theres a few options.

If we want to stick with The Revenge we could just do some rewriting/retconning and install someone new as captain.

Or Isa could just not show up when they go to steal the ship and then we could have a semi democratic pirate ship, where crew votes on targets and what not. With the ships cat as the official captain?

Or just do the stealing part and then IC decide who should be the acting captain


Another option would be retooling the ship as a whole, new name, maybe new hull.

Other ideas? Thoughts? Comments?

What if: We keep story same, Isa is a no show, they have to leave or they're gonna fail the mission, they get out into the black and are like, "tzao gao, who is captain." Pete and cat stumble out of hiding. They exist without a captain a bit before they just start joking that the cat is the captain/telling people it's the captain, and Melody keeps doing XO stuff and stepping in as Captain only in times of ties or indecision? But really, it's all the cat...

What if something goes awry, Isa is captured or killed, Melody decides to Captain the Revenge in her stead (IN REVENGE OF HER  CAPTURE OR DEATH YOU SEE???) and she recruits Holger as her XO so he can scare the rest of the crew into going along with it???

It all sounds good to me! I think it's always nice when you find a way to adapt without having to retcon.

SO why don't we do this:

They go through with the plan as they were going to. As they're taking the ship or directly afterward, they're trying to figure out why Isa hasn't shown up. Maybe Jo is able to find out that she's been pinched before she could get to the docks. So they have to take off in a hurry:

Melody, Jo, Holger and Izak on board for sure.
Pete and his cat asleep/hiding/unconscious down in the ships bowels.

They get up to the black and after the whole, omg there's people on the ship issue, they have to decide what to do. Melody decides to become Captain in honor/revenge of Isa and to stick it to the MAN all the more. And then she asks Holger to be the XO instead of her. But if anyone asks, the cat is the Captain and she's gonna tell anyone who asks that the cat is in charge...

Thoughts?

That sounds good to me. We can also send them on a wild goose chase for Isa if we ever run out of plot material. :D Or it could be an underlying plot thread that pops up now and again.
