    I'm curious - how the hell can he know the precise area of the ship? The ocean is kinda big without some form of measuring equipment or direct access to the bridge.

    I think we're going to have to rewind back to before Ryze's post...

    And Ryze: speech and thoughts; try to make sure they're clear- eg quotation marks around speech and italics on thoughts.
    Like;
    Speech: "Hey, what's up?"
    Thought: I'm hungry or 'I'm hungry'.

    Re: Survival

    Well, Midnight made it pretty clear in the RP thread.
    I'm just gonna wait for Chloe to finish her big post. It doesn't seem like she has checked this thread in a while, though.
    Midnight, if you read this, just pretend that I've told you my background already and pick up from that, or something. XD

    OK, so now Im confused. I thought the staff weren't supposed to know. Wasn't ot that no-one believed Roxie and only our characters made it off the ship?

    Re: Survival

    Well, technically we're the only ones who reach the island. And because people can always join in later during the RP, others might have escaped, too.
    Still, I think it's easiest if we try to change Ryze's post a little bit, have Roxie try to warn people and chaos ensue. Then we get in a few safety rafts and the bomb explodes as we do. Creating even more chaos. We are the first in the water and others manage to get to safety rafts too, but we get seperated from them.

    Or something.

    Re: Survival

    Per the GM's request I've deleted every post from Ryze's on down. As of now the only ones that know of the bomb are Roxie and Duke. Midnyte will set the pace of the sink blowing up the rest of us will follow and add as the narrative fits and on her instructions.

    Please remember to get the GM's permission before moving a plot point around that will affect the entire RP. Each player has more control over individual character subplots but only within the guidelines established by Midnyght. She is God as far as this RP is concerned.

    Sorry for all the confusion everyone but this sort of thing is bound to happen when you have an RP with so many players with different sensibilities and on different schedules. Sorry to everyone that lost posts but it was necessary to keep a structured RP and narrative. Let's all calm down and get back to playing. No need to jump the gun on all of this.

    Re: Survival

    Done. =P

    For now, I've got the live band - the Bombers [>.>] - playing in the Blue Lounge and therefore mostly drowning out the announcements.

    And those who hear the bomb warning think it is part of the show because the band playing is called the BOMBERS after all.

    So that's the explanation as to why most of the people completely disregard the warning!! Except for us - becuase we're all on deck.

    Or not. My watch appears to be too fast...

    So what is happening now? Will there be an announcement? If so I take it its soon as "the bombers" have already started playing. :p

    eh it moved to a somewhat different direction already.
    When the time comes, I'll just write it anew :)

    Still thanks.

    Re: OOC: Survival

    So I had a thought.

    I've been thinking about the pending explosion and it seems to me that the Captain and crew would obviously take the warnings seriously and realistically they would be the first people you would tell about the bomb. From there the first thing they would do is to radio for help.

    If they radioed for help then it would give people looking a fairly good idea where to look. Thus shattering the possibility that our intrepid group of survivors will be on the island for that long.

    So what if I had Jared go up and discover sabotage on the bridge, the radio gone and/or bridge crew dead just like in the engine room?

    Up to you Chloe.

    Re: OOC: Survival

    Hmm, what about Wassy's character? Isn't he already at the bridge? And didn't he want someone to 'bot' him for a bit..?

    As for the radio communications... hmm. That's a good point. >.> Damn, I didn't think about it... well, okay, how about this? I know it's a tad unlikely, but let's say that... well, we could make it that the area we got lost in is somewhat reminiscent of the Bermuda Triangle. The weather conditions are unpredictable, there are magnetic abnormalities that will interfere with the communication/navigation devices - the Bermuda Triangle is one of the few places where compasses point to true north rather than magnetic north. If you are willing to take that idea on board, then it gives us a reason for us not being found because we’re [way] off course due to the navigational readings being wrong and the communication devices…


    [the other idea that won’t really hold up well is that the communications devices are blocked by the cruise ship itself acting as a massive ‘metal box’ that would shield the radio frequencies… much akin to how sometimes reception in concrete buildings are vaguely screwed up because the steel rebar that reinforces the concrete acts as a ‘metal box’ and blocks the radio waves (to an extent). But that wouldn’t hold up well, because you’d think that they’d have tested it beforehand…]
    Or alternatively, we could have the sabotage theory. That works as well – especially as we’ve got so many cops/shady figures aboard the cruise so there are plenty of possible motives… you pick.

    Oh, and just a few points;-

    Firstly – when Roxie finds the bomb, it’s already got about… 15 minutes or so..? So you have to take the fact that she just ran into me, which is going to take a bit of time to sort out because if she calls Duke in and runs off, Lee is going to be extremely annoyed and demand an explanation. Don’t forget after that she has to work out what she’s going to do – does she just raise a general alarm and tell everyone she sees? Or does she just run straight to captain’s quarters? After that, she’ll have to convince the captain – firstly, why the hell would a bomb be on the ship? What’s the motive..? [“I don’t know!! Just get everyone off the fucking cruise before it blows!!”] After that, the captain has to organise the crew…

    And then let’s say he gets it somewhat organised. There’s only a small amount of people who are going to get on the lifeboats because 15 minutes, to be honest, is not exactly a lot of time – especially when you take in all the above. So people are going to get on lifeboats but don’t forget that after the bomb blows up, the ship is going to explode, there will be massive waves/shockwaves etc. Just really dramatic – and not everyone on a lifeboat will survive. Some people will fall overboard and drown. Others will be hit by debris. Some will simply be too close to the ship and be incinerated in the explosion. Some lifeboats might capsize due to the [shock] waves. Some of us might get swept overboard and later be washed up on shore, having miraculously survived…

    Is that good enough for you? XP

    Re: OOC: Survival

    I didn't think the boat would actually explode as a whole. I was more thinking of the engine room exploding, making a big shockwave throughout the boat and killing people, but not destroying the whole boat. Which leaves an extra couple of minutes before the boat sinks. Just my take on it, do with it as you want to. :p

    I really do like Supercapo's idea, the bridge's communication should be able to work normally, so sabotaging them sounds normal, given the fact that someone planted a bomb in the first place.
    The Bermuda Triangle theory of Midnight sounds interesting, albeit a little bit far fetched, maybe? I don't know honestly. :ono:

    Re: OOC: Survival

    Well it's good enough for me :p Im happy with any of said theories.

    And thanks for the Bermuda Triangle info. I never knew anything about it being magnetically abnormal :p

    All of a sudden Lost isnt so farfetched anymore :p

    Well except for the constant timetravelling, people coming back from the dead and a fat guy on an island for God knows how many days without getting any slimmer! XD

    Still dont ya just luv it XD

    Re: OOC: Survival

    Yeah, the sinking would take several minutes I'd think, with successive explosions throughout the ship as we are all like 'omgruntothehillz'.

    An instant vapourisation of the boat is... well... that's a big bomb :p

    What hills? XP

    And it'd be an awesome bomb. =D

    But seriously, we've only found one bomb. That doesn't mean there aren't others... =P

    Ergo successive explosions rather than one almighty smiting of the boat.

    Mmhm. I don't really care. XD So long as the boat and most of the people go down, then I'm happy. XD
