Re: In search of Shangri-La

True to his word, Tim was working beside the crew with every crate. His uniform jacket of heavy wool was hung on a peg near the stairway that lead up to the deck. Several hours had passed and so far there were six glossy black breech loaders in place on the gun deck. All twelve would have been finis...

Re: In search of Shangri-La

Tim stayed on the ship for the first two days, making sure every crew member had a chance to get shore leave before he went into town. He had heard of the Krupp Guns and saw how superior they were to most weapons. With a limited crew, Krupp guns would certainly make the gunnery division a lot more e...

Re: In search of Shangri-La

Tim waited until the crew was assembled near his cabin. He spotted an exchange between Niki and Jack, but decided that she had it handled well enough for now, he would have his own talk with Jack afterword. When most of the attention was on him he began in a loud yet calm tone. His voice carried fro...

Re: In search of Shangri-La

The wolf looked over the map a bit, then charted the distance mentally. "Alright, with taking on supplies as well as upgrade the armament. That will probably take a few days. The time consuming issue would be hiring more crew. That might take longer. When we tie up, we will stay for one week, no lon...

Re: In search of Shangri-La

Over the next few days, the crew-Tim included-fell into a sort of natural rhythm. There was always someone cleaning somewhere on the deck of the ship, mostly thanks to the machinery. Lubrication oil, coal dust, and of course soot was sure to overtake the cleanliness of the ship if someone didn't ten...

Re: In search of Shangri-La

Tim bowed slightly to the Duke before boarding the ship. There was always a rush of excitement before the launching-no matter what type of vessel you were on. Sloop, steamer or airship, one thing was common about the launches: crews were always exited and eager to do the tasks they would preform day...

Re: In search of Shangri-La

Tim had woke with only a mild headache. That night he had went to sleep aboard his cabin on the Raleigh . Not a bad cabin, Tim had certainly slept in far worse in his time. In fact the airship was already starting to grow on him a bit. Perhaps it was the fact hardly any pirates had airships of their...

Re: In search of Shangri-La

"You are generous. Your Grace." Tim replied. The budget was indeed far higher than he had anticipated. He had some concerns of how well the ship could be fought-even defensively, but with his skills and Niki's tact for the unpredictable approach, there shouldn't be too much to worry about. At least ...

Re: In search of Shangri-La

Tim nodded and revised his words a bit. Perhaps they had come out a bit too simplistic in concept, but the idea itself was a valid point. After all, the average deck-hand would hardly care for fame if he couldn't buy drink or companionship at the next harbor with it. Sadly, most sailors were more ma...

Re: In search of Shangri-La

"Yes, sir. Tricky currents in the area we were in. So instead of staying the night there as planned, we struck out to sail home. That is when the two Pirate ships who had been tailing us for a while had struck. They of course had the advantage in guns and crews, unless you take into account the supe...

Re: Holy Redneck Heaven (Edwinish countryside. Open)

(Is this thread catching the Dead? Possibly a post would rekindle this post's lifeblood?) Dr Helen Magnus waited for Tim impatiently. She hated when he took off and would be out after dark. Much higher likelihood that he would get caught if he couldn't see as far. Plus she snorted to herself thinkin...

Re: Brainstorming

True, but I do know Ksaa will be on more soon. I room with her and when we have days off we usually sit at the house and do nothing. Now we can re-activate some of the posts on here. A lot seems to have stalled since i left. Lots of new stuff on the Twilight Zone too.

Re: In search of Shangri-La

(Sorry for the delay. Lots of moving and shifting and several job-shifts later finally allowed me time to explore back on here, though hopefully this story is not over.) Tim hid a smirk at Niki's sudden change in accent. She had mastered several accents for blending in all the better-sometimes avoid...

Re: Brainstorming

Yes, still interested in a Burn Notice RP. Haven't posted on here for a while, but if I have an RP going and started I'll leave reminders to check daily on here. So far we have a "Michal Westin" stand-in, and a "Fiona Glenanne" Stand in. We certainly don't need exact stand in chars to match the show...

Re: In search of Shangri-La

Tim flicked an ear and turned to look as a Fifth Rate Ship of the Line was demolished in a series of explosions. Shortly thereafter he spotted a group of furs. One of whom called out "Aye, Cap'n! Hold up!" He looked a bit surprised at her but held his composure as she spoke up again "Tim? if'en anyb...
