Characters and Classes:












Okay, the ship is up and running once more, with a few changes now.

This room is a steampunk RP. Modern tech, Victorian style. Lots of Polished brass and Gas Lamps and whatnot. The focus is on Technology and building your own contraptions rather than magical or mystical powers, so keep that in mind.


The planet known as Maderra is not like this one. The countries are often marred in smog pumped out from the coal burning machines used to drive the world, and the gaslamps that line the street are nigh-permanently lit. It is home to all kinds of creatures. Anthros, humans, elves and the like. Most of these people live in harmony, eking an existance with no mind for hatred towards other species. However not all of them wish to be so subservient, and away from the narrow, cobbled streets and crowded inns, ships roam through the clean air and deep blue of the oceans. This is but one of those ships, The Animus.

Note to Lurkers: The name of the planet is Maderra. We still need some place names.

Caz-Desmins Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2008
Name: Glyph Zansibar
Age: 22
Gender: Male
Height: 5'11"
Appearance: [link]
Brief History: Whenever a group of eccentrics needed a new device tested, Glyph would be the one to receive the page. After years of testing unsound, unstable, and downright outrageous equipment, one would think that he would be missing a limb or two at the very least. However, time has been kind to him and the majority of damage he's suffered has been blunt force trauma (the hat pictured was originally a tophat). The latest device he tested, the S.P.A.F.D., landed him head-first on the deck of a certain ship when one of the hoses disconnected, sending him spiraling out of control. Unable to clearly remember who he was working for or where he came from, he's enlisted with the crew to earn his way until someone comes to collect him.

Glyph was chosen to pilot the S.P.A.F.D. for more than his near-suicidal eagerness; his horns, safely hidden under his hat when not careening through the air, are sensitive to changes in air pressure, putting him a step ahead of other potential subjects in reacting appropriately during flight.
Toys: Orange-lensed goggles, S.P.A.F.D. (Steam-Propelled Aeronautical Flight Device. It was also the sound he made upon crashing during the initial test flight.)
Skills: Uncanny eye for patterns and obscurities, oddly durable when it comes to explosions and cranial blows, sensitive to sudden changes in air pressure
Quirks: Possesses a rather extreme love for experimental new gadgets, often leading him to volunteer for highly dangerous tests without a second thought.
Position applied for: Crew member and Guinea pig

SPAFD description: The SPAFD consists of a steam tank slightly smaller than a book bag with a tangle of pipes extending from the sides ending in a series of downward-pointing nozzles. Near the bottom of the tank--somewhere behind all the pipes--a pair of hoses extend to roughly wrist-length, terminating in glove-mounted nozzles capable of firing concentrated streams of steam used for steering. The gloves contain small plates used to fire the steering nozzles and a chest plate secured with leather cross straps houses the controls for the tank itself.
