Cherissime amis! Welcome to Ezhara — perhaps you might call it the land of prodigy, where the youth, fated to take upon the mantle of our legacy, are taught to love their passion, their childhood incroyable, destined to resonate forever within their hearts to create that brighter future, whether resurrecting from the bygone ashes of a past, or maintaining their gold ascendant.

Application for a visa in the Republic of Ridderli


Image

Name: E te Toa Kahurangi Roimata
Gender: Male
Country of origin: Tangatarehua
Nationality: Rehuan
Date of Birth: 21st January 1959
Place of Birth: Takutairoa, Tangatarehua
Occupation: CEO of Kaiika Seafood Concern, Chairman of Tangatarehua Imperial Naval History Museum
Reason for visit: He is coming specifically for the festival, to represent Tangatarehua and its naval history and also because he's a guy with a heap of money so why not.
Willingness to Return to Country of Origin: He will return after the festival and take his boats with him.
Travel Health Insurance: No, but he's stinking rich so doesn't really feel the need to carry it - he could afford to buy a hospital if he needed to.
Will you carry contraband (as defined by the laws of your country of origin)?
    [ ] Yes, if so, what kind of contraband?
    [X] Maybe, if so, what kind of contraband? Te Waka Taua's crew will carry taiaha (spears) for ceremonial purposes - under Rehuan law it is illegal to carry weapons of any sort, however Roimata has a special permit allowing his crew to do so.
    [ ] No

OOC-Section
Have you read and understood the rules? Drink up, me hearties, yo-ho!
Notes: Roimata is a member of the Toa [Warrior-Noble] class, hence the E Te Toa title, which is equivalent to "Lord" or "Baron" in the west.

Notes:

Harbour Festival of Broodeheim Docking Application


Name of Ship: TIS Te Waka Taua
Builder: Originally built by slaves [Taurekareka] of the Kaitiaki of Ikame; Later restored by the Kaiika Shipbuilding Corporation
Laid Down: May 1790
Launched: 5th December 1791
Commissioned: 5th December 1791
Owner: Tangatarehua Imperial Naval History Museum
Previous ship names and owners: Previously of the Tangatarehua Imperial Navy [which no longer exists], previous names unknown
Class and Type: Cross between a sailing frigate and a waka hourua; developed using European technology after contact with the Dutch from 1600s onward. Restored in 2008.
Length: 30m (two hulls)
Width: Each hull is 6m wide, plus a midsection connecting the two 8m wide.
Draught: 6m
Port of Registry: Kaiika
Crew: 10
Do you plan to allow guided tours of the vessel? Yes
Do you plan to host a public event on the vessel? If so, what and when?

Yes - a day or so after it arrives, a Powhiri [Maori welcome ceremony] is planned that may be attended by the public, although a guest of honour (such as a host/harbour official) should attend as part of the traditional symbolism. Once this ceremony is done and the tapu (sacredness/untouchability) of the ship is lifted, it will be open to members of the public to explore - this ship is a museum ship.

OOC-section
Notes: The crew will include three warriors and one female kaikaranga (caller) as part of the ceremony - I'm hoping I won't need to do profiles for each of these characters as this would become very time-consuming.

The ship, although usually a sailing ship, does have a small motor on board (as well as other modern conveniences like GPS) and may be tugged part of the way by Roimata's yacht.

Gladly accepted, welcome aboard! The spears are fine.
As for the ceremony, the Powhiri, either we do that on the day of the Festival, first thing in the morning, or on the day before. In any case, you can mention, that the Mayor of Broodeheim, Nela Rood, is in the crowd or whereever you need her for it (please leave RPing her to me, though).
Though, looking at your factbooks, and especially that about the class system, does Tangatarehua practice slavery?

Perfect, I'd say first thing in the morning on the day of the festival works best. Hopefully I'll have a post up tonight (might be tomorrow, little busy at the moment), though I probably won't start with the Powhiri.

And no, Tangatarehua does not practice slavery, this was abolished by the 1979 constitution (Article 3, Section 6).

The Taurekareka are a social class of people who are either freed former slaves or whose ancestors were slaves and they face considerable social stigma as a result. While it is actually illegal now to discriminate against someone from a Taurekareka family, in reality it's a lot easier to pass a law than it is to change a deeply ingrained social attitude.

Not hugely relevant to this RP but it's interesting background trivia...

Indeed, very interesting. If we could give likes on the forums, I'd do so.
It also is a good defense against anyone sending any Dienstadi Declaration Powers your way... ; )

Speaking of which, posted. Amy let the bomb go off, Jette is making a new friend, I rushed the Grams along a bit and a bit of a crowd gathered to see the welcoming ceremony / tapu-status being lifted.
Questions, remarks, etc. - please post them here.

Sounds like a plan, but don't worry, if it doesn't work. As for what she might do first... maybe she gets breakfast at the by now most-well visited stall for Pfeilfischbrötchen in Ridderli? ; )

I was thinking I might have her by the water watching the ships, since I'm still hoping to segue into a meeting with her friends if the relevant parties post.

Perhaps rewinding the clock a bit compared to other characters' stories, Z was leaning on a low wall by the water, looking out at the Old Town Harbour and watching the ships. Her tail swished back and forth rythmically, like a metronome, but perhaps more attention-grabbing than her vixen features was her strikingly red hair, which flowed down past her wait and near the end passed through a large turqoise bead. Though numerous ill-advised adventures and a general desire to get places fast had made Z an expert at the art of running in a long dress, today she wore a more standard pair of jeans and a green t-shirt, along with a worn but reliable pair of khaki hiking boots and a backpack of the same color. Perhaps her dress, which like her came from the Arctic, was too warm for this climate, or perhaps it had finally tripped her up a few times too many.

Z was in particular keeping an eye out for a cruise liner two of her friends were due to arrive on, though for all she knew it might have already docked; she had been preoccupied by the multitude of other ships of varying types throughout the harbor, and had been variously watching and taking pictures of them for the past half hour at least. This fox couldn't stay still forever, though, and soon found herself walking rather precariously along the seawall she'd been leaning on, her arms out for balance. Eventually she started losing her balance, and thankfully was able to avoid an uncontrolled fall and sat upon the wall instead, once again looking outward.


I have a basic start but since she isn't really interacting with anyone it feels sort of like filler, though maybe that's ok since it's just her introductory post. Not sure.

The finished post looks good. Want me to have anyone crash into her or would anyone else volunteer one of his/her characters?

Everyone, next post of mine is in the works, it'll just take a bit. University and RL in general are not too pleasing at the moment.

Z was in particular keeping an eye out for a cruise liner two of her friends were due to arrive on, though for all she knew it might have already docked; she had been preoccupied by the multitude of other ships of varying types throughout the harbor, and had been variously watching and taking pictures of them for the past half hour at least. This fox couldn't stay still forever, though, and soon found herself walking rather precariously along the seawall she'd been leaning on, her arms out for balance. Eventually she started losing her balance, and thankfully was able to avoid an uncontrolled fall and sat upon the wall instead, once again looking outward.


I have a basic start but since she isn't really interacting with anyone it feels sort of like filler, though maybe that's ok since it's just her introductory post. Not sure.


The finished post looks good. Want me to have anyone crash into her or would anyone else volunteer one of his/her characters?

Everyone, next post of mine is in the works, it'll just take a bit. University and RL in general are not too pleasing at the moment.

No pressure, Selks.

If you want to I'd welcome it, but don't feel like you have to seeing as you're busy.

Just for the record, I'm currently flooded with work and other real life things at the moment - hopefully I'll be free to devote more time to roleplaying from next week.

Thank you all for your understanding. In the meantime, I had a boring lecture.
Foxfound, I decided to use a character I wanted to use for a while now. I hope, that you don't mind how the two got into touch... how Z sees it, though... ; )
Tangatarehua, thank you for the heads up. RL is more important then RP and considering the current posting speed, I doubt, that you'll miss much until next week.

Going to read the post now! Not sure if I can respond today, though, as I still have one last big assignment this semester.

Finally have time to do things. Are there any notable fish dishes on the breakfast menu, or "something light" as Eiko would be apt to want?

No problem, RL is more important. Besides, it's not as if we have a posting rate, which can be measured in posts per hours (not that I complain, mind you, this is wonderful).
Did you like it? ; )

Looks good.

Fish dishes are a speciality in Ridderli. ; )
So, there is the classic of waffles and smoked salmon, shrimp scramble if you need to be quick, fish fingers, or another quickie, Heringsaufstrich (pickled herring run through the grinder, mixed with other ingredients, for example eggs or pickles, and served with a nice bread/roll to put on) and fish sausages, usually served with salads of different variations.
Or tuna salad in general.

And there is tea, including green and black.
