Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Story thread: Day 11 **Rescue**
« on: May 06, 2008, 08:40:18 pm »
This is the official story thread: I will post the story of what happens on the ship in this thread. Please post and discuss things "in character" in this thread. If there is special information you need to have, I will send that to you by pm. Please keep notes about what information you receive as you are trying to figure out a mystery. If you have questions, please post them in the planning thread.

Welcome aboard the SS Glicker!!

After much waiting, embarkation day finally arrived. The passengers were ready to set sail on the brand new ship for their high sea adventure. 

They gathered at the Ship terminal to check in the luggage and receive room keys.

Bodhi felt a little uneasy leaving his luggage, this was his first cruise.

Lines formed as they waited their turn to board the ship. We have a celebrity on board this trip, the famous Huckbuck is traveling with us.

Oviraptor began snapping pictures the moment he arrived. He should have a great photo album when the cruise is done.

It seems that two of our passengers might know each other already.

Finally clearance was given to board the ship!

All passengers walked the gangway and entered on board.

In each cabin was a paper that served as a daily guide to the activities on the ship. Be sure to read it daily to see what's happening!

*points to First Mate Andrew Ryan*

"This fine man is First Mate Andrew Ryan."

Didero stood at the Purser's desk ready to take questions or room reassignments. There were bound to be complaints and lost luggage coming in soon.


Down in the engine room Yossitaru was trying to figure out what that particular button did. He hoped it wouldn't be too important, everything seemed to be working fine.


Our top chef, Alwayswatching was having a meeting with his staff, the food must be perfect and the people must be kept well fed and happy. This was his debut moment!


Backstage, our diva performer was feeling nervous. This was a very booked cruise and she had doubts that she could pull off a good performance.


Capt Hydro checked the latest updates at the port (is that what he's doing?) while First Mate Ryan got a visual on the water conditions. Either that or he's checking out the pool deck. 


In the passenger rooms, Lual helped bring the luggage into the rooms. "I wonder what's inside" he thought.

You can post in this thread, comments and dialogs, just post "as your character".

Thinking to self, 'If all goes well, I'm going to be having a late night.  I'd better take a nap until it's time for the lifeboat drill.'

*Looks at a map of the ship*

Level 1 - Crew Deck
*RESTRICTED*

Level 2 - Hydro Deck


Level 3 - Inkling Deck


Level 4 - Didero Deck


Level 5 - Spore Deck


Level 6 - Pool Deck


'There's my room . . . and Deck 2 is the place to be tonight.  Odd, I don't see any lifeboats.  They must be on the crew deck.'

*Looking around waiting for the elevator doors to close*

'There sure are a lot of guys on this singles cruise . . . '

*Gets behind bar counter*

Another day, another...

*Pauses to count up just how much I get paid*

Free room and board while at sea and whatever I make in tips.

*Starts washing a glass, not because it's dirty but because I've found that tips are more likely if I appear to be working*

Pulls a watch out of his pocket and glances down.

"Looks like there's still time to check out the casino before that mandatory drivel."

Pulls door E8 shut tightly behind himself, turning right and making his way towards the staircase.

My finger traces the map along the wall.

"Ah."

I descend the staircase, moving along the corridor and past the disco, turning left into the casino. It is mostly vacant, with some flashing slot machines and a green-top blackjack table in the corner. The bar along the opposite wall is occupied by a man working over a glass with a rag.

"Looks like there aren't any of the usual ditsy ladies here yet. Guess I'll wait to cash in until later."

I make my way towards the bar, leaning against the counter.

"Got any cigars here?"

"Wouldn't be a proper bar without a decent lung-full, would it?"

I lift out a cheap pack from under the counter.

"'Course these aren't the good ones, you just come back when we hit international waters for those."

*I push the button a few more times before getting bored.*

They said there were issues, but everything looks fine now... I just hope more issues don't come up...

*I look back at the array of machinery once more before taking the elevator up to watch the passengers board.*

"I think I have some time for a drink at the casino bar before this life boat thing?"

Where are all the chicks at? I wonder if I can get a game of strip poker going?"

"Ulp... lifeboats. Great, it'll be Titanic all over again. Get a hold of yourself, we're not going to sink. Ugh. I need a drink."

I wash my hands and head to the bar

"Uh... three Scotch on the rocks please. Heh."

*Reads the paper before nodding to himself and steps out of the cabin, making sure the door is locked*

"Lets see now"

*Heads over to the closest map studying it for a bit before heading down to the internet cafe*

"I would like to buy an Internet Time plan, and enter the raffle for the free time"

*his gaze studying the computers and equipment*

As I walk out of the meeting with Alwayswatching, I sigh and look at my watch.

"Eh, I don' need to report for work until 5ish.  Might as well get a drink in the mean time."

I make my way slowly up to the casino bar, standing down at the far end, away from the passengers.

"Oi!..."

I look at the bartender's nametag.

"... Neoadept.  Mind passing me down a gin 'n tonic when you got a sec?"

*Never riding on a boat before i decide to go to my room on the didero deck. Being worried about how to retain my shape while on this cruise i decided to not to walk but to run and take the stairs. This was a mistake since i don't have my sea legs and was sent crashing in to a nearby waiter whose name i did not see*

(Sorry sorry my bad)

*As i made it to the steps i lost my balance yet again and toppled down the last three landing with a crash at the bottom*

(Nobody saw that right? whew)

*Finally arriving at my room i realize that running only made me feel worse as i went reeling to the bathroom. *Explicit disgusting noises*

(Ugh..off to a wonderful start...)
