Round Three: Frozen Freebooters (EXTENSION!)

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 27, 2009, 11:04 AM
Salutations, Sky Pirates!

Due to concerns brought to us by many of our current competitors, we are allowing you all one extra week to complete your entries!
Use your time wisely, and we'll see you then!

Greetings, and Happy New Year!

The harsh winter has passed, and once again cobbled streets are peeking out from underneath the snow. The sound of gears groaning and turning  after the frigid winter fills the air at the crowded docks. The halt on activity has been lifted at last, and once more it is time to take to the skies!

However, the cold winds and the sudden frosts were not kind to the mechanical workings of many ships, and many-a  captain find themselves suddenly with empty husks of metal too corroded and cracked to lift themselves into the skies!

Among these ships are the greatly diminished crew of Lady Genesis Nova, the surprisingly resilient and loyal crew under Gimmick and a scattering of independent ships. What troubles and tribulations face them this round?

It's Back to the Skies for Round Three!

Mystery of the Mayor.
:iconekuneshiel: VS. :iconmr-tea-and-crumpets:
The Mayor of Clockwork City has been called away by the Queen of the Country, and his loyal secretary Miss Crowley left running about keeping the city's return to normal running smoothly, the Mayor's Office has been left vacant. What wonders and Trinkets could such a place, where so few have been allowed to tread, hold within it's walls? Surely such a place must be such a mystery for a reason!

Ploy for Parachutes
:iconbilious: VS. :iconfalingard:
Winter has left the ships worse for the wear. The fallout from the frost means that both the Geisha and Marauder are barely staying on top of their maintenance. Silas, terrified at the prospect of the ship taking a premature dive to, asks Riel and Zin, to discretely obtain some... Spare parts (maybe a parachute or two?) just in case of such an emergency. Such a commodity might be found less in the city and more on other ships. Though other ships may have the same idea.

High Noon in the High Skies
:iconzarathepirate: VS. :iconqueengwenevere:
Cargo from the Americas has found itself abandoned on the loading airdocks. Inside, amidst the leathers, there hides an assortment of weaponry. Guns unusual to these parts, nasty works of flint and steel, and even curious pants that don't seem to cover everything. Certainly it would be an interesting addition to any ship, though don't think you're the only ones looking for it.

Contraption Competition
:iconartistsblood: VS. :iconoly-rrr:
In order to keep aloft, Gimmick had to add extra hardware into the Marauder to make it skyworthy, after many parts of it gave in to winter's  thralls. As such, space on the ship, which was never all that abundant to begin with, has become even more of a  scarcity.  There are only several "ideal" sleeping spaces left that are not directly under noisy machinery. Never one to kick someone off her ship, despite having little place to put them, Gimmick decided to settle the squabbles over the "choice" nap places with a challenge among her crew: Whoever invents the most interesting/useful item, will get to share Gimmick's workshop  aboard the ship, the only roomy, ah, room left.

And there you have it, Sky Pirates! This round will by due by 11:59 PM, February 1st! Best of luck, and have fun!

Sounds like there is some serious people still aboard the project, it is good to know a creative story based Rp Game like this is still aloft. Best of wishes to everyone from a lowly pirate who didn't quite make it to the skies in time, but still prays for all of your safe landings and take-offs amongst the stars:aww:
