Sinope Harbour Festival (OOC, MT)

Postby Kyrenaia » Sun Dec 09, 2018 1:36 pm

Hoist the sails!


The City of Sinope, one of Kyrenaia's largest harbour towns and certainly the largest harbour in the Ilkhanate of Megido, invites all owners of sailing vessels, all enthusiasts of sailing propulsion and everyone, who might want to join their ranks to Sinope, where, on the 23rd of Decembre, a large harbour festival celebrating exactly these ships will be held.
Amongst the many events planned for the day, there is a Tall Ship Parade, with the Sultana Herself taking the salute from the deck of the Harira, a concert of the famous singer Almak and other musicians of high renown, both from Kyrenaia and abroad, the Axeriding Teams of the Tabar Boys' Academy and the Durra'ah Boys' Academy and other will be competing for the Sailors' Trophy and many more - you will find a timetable for an overview attached below.

Hope to see you in Sinope!
Atif Eumda, Khaskiya,
Dardan,

Mayor of Sinope.
Ilkhan of Megido

24:00/0:00 - Official End of the festivities.





Hello and welcome to the Sinope Harbour Festival of 2018!
A place to experience Kyrenaia, the Kyrenaians and many facetes of either while also, maybe, having your characters show off their sailing yachts a bit - and of course interacting with other people while (hopefully) having fun at the festival, which the metropolis Sinope will be holding.
The main event will be, of course, the Tall Ship Parade, but we will surely find things for your characters to do as well - for example visiting fellow sailors on their vessels big and small, visiting the booths and the festival... the options are almost limitless!
If you want to participate, fill out the Application and wait to be accepted. Start of the IC is set for the 23rd of December 2018.
If any question arises, ask it here, please!

Have you read and understood the rules? (No, "yes" is not the correct answer!)
RP-Sample:


Sadly, we will need...
1. No Godmodding, Metagaming or any of that stuff. No exceptions.
    1.1. These rules can be changed, clarified or amended at any given time. I will inform of changes.
    1.2. I am the OP. My word is law until one of the nice ladies and gentlemen with the red usernames comes around.
    1.3. PG-13 is a thing that exists. Observe it.
    1.4. IC on the IC, OOC on the OOC (read: here). If you wish to coordinate and cooperate with your fellow RPers to write posts, feel absolutely free to do so - in fact, feel encouraged to do so.
2. No murders and violence only when all parties involved (me, you and the one you want to hit) agree. And even then, the violence will not last for very long. No exceptions.
3. Focus of this RP are the interactions of the characters and less the ships themselves. You can go into as much detail as you like about them (God knows, that I will ; )), but that is not mandatory.
    3.1. No MT-Worthy warships. And no, no WW1, WW2 or Cold War Warships either. So no guided missile cruisers, no aircraft carriers, no ballistic missile submarines, no nothing of that sort. This is a peaceful gathering of peace and no place to show off your newest toys. No exceptions (not even myself).
    3.2. To clarify: If the sailing ships you come with are, for example, the Gorch Fock of your Navy, then by all means, bring them.
    3.3. The question "Have you read and understood the rules?" is to be answered with "Chop down the mast!" No exceptions.
    3.4. The vessel may have auxiliary engines, though, but it's major mode of getting around must be sails.
4. ALL Kyrenaian NPCs, be they other visitors, crews of the vessels or whatever, are played by me and ONLY by me, due to cultural particularities. No exceptions.
5. Humans and Humanoids only. Sorry, Pony-People. No exceptions.
6. If you use an image to represent your characters, please either hotlink it or use spoilers. Anime-style character images are allowed, but not mandatory.
7. If you have multiple characters but only one ship, then fill out multiple character applications, but only one Sailing Vessel Application. Same vice-versa. Of course, people can come without sailing vessels as well, but I would prefer it, if you were to have at least one character.
8. The RP-sample has to be a sample of an RP in which you participated with the account you are applying with, and has to show how you interact with other players. No exceptions.
    8.1. On special circumstances, I might allow RP-samples from NS-Social Networks such as Piffle, but the circumstances need to be very, very special.
9. Security is provided, so you can have a maximum of one (1) bodyguard per character. If you feel the need for more, there will be no need for it. No exceptions.
    9.1. Ceremonial weaponry, like for example a sabre or salute canons or something of that sort (and let me stress: salute canons), is allowed. If that is abused, however, I will react accordingly. No exceptions.
10. Your sailing vessel(s) will participate in the Tall Ship Parade. If you have special requests concerning that, I am sure, that something can be arranged.


    - Aurelia (Prince Damir's favourite yacht).
    - Harira (Princess Aurelia's Yacht, the Sultana will take the salute from her deck).
    - Sayarfur (Crown Prince Ilia's Bagala-Type Sailing Ship, she will lead the parade, crewed by a crew of the HGA's Sailing Club, open for visitors).
    - Ríméad (Capall na dTonn Type vessel of the Free Lands, open for visitors).
    - HMSS Hoshi (of the UIS).
    - SMS Pommern.
    - Geezer's Rest.
    - Godspeed.
    - Corazon (participates in race).
    - Luna Mysteria.
    - Milenka.
    - SFSS Malika Aljazirat.
    - Debarwa(participates in race).

    - Your Commercial could be written here!

...hang on, so would either an August-Mackensen-class battlecruiser or a Brandenburg-class pre-dreadnought battleship be fine, or am I going to have to revive the Brandenburg Navy?

No, neither would be fine.
I already clarified the rules a bit, but in essence, this is Sailing Ships ONLY. Following that line of thought, a Seeadler-lookalike would be fine. ; )

Country of Origin: Calidia
Security: One Marine Life Guard trooper
Is the Character armed? Yes
    If yes, with what?

RP-Sample: This is an alt of Letheny, but I can fish for one if needed regardless.

Another thing is that the Calidian Expedition is in fact a fleet of tall ships numbering at 160. I know there's certainly not enough space for the whole thing to participate, but is it permissible that a decent number (maybe twenty) total ships attend and I leave most of them unnamed and unapplied, since that would be kind of a pain?

Looking good so far, but I indeed have to insist on an RP-sample from that account (CoC, I mean).
As for a detachment of the fleet participating, I would be happy to have 10 to 15 ships (maybe even with their names, but that is not mandatory).

EDIT: I also added a line in the application for ships asking whether or not your ship is open to visitors. Those already accepted do not have to answer, but it would be appreciated.

Will see what I can fetch you.

EDIT: Here's the prose-iest thing I could find. For simplicity purposes, only the applied ships will be open for now, I suppose?

Sorry, Lethen, but as mentioned: The RP-sample has to be from the account you are applying with, see Rule 8. No exceptions.

At this point I've accepted that Europe's going to hell and I'm only hoping that we get as much border gore as possible out of it.

That would work, yes. As for the ship of the line, as long as the guns fire blanks, it's alright.
As for coming back once you have an RP-sample, that would be alright as well.

I did. Plus, it's written in the rules.
And that would work, yes.

Gladly accepted, Mervay! So one of the sisters of the Aurelia comes around as well... who knows, maybe Damir will visit them, if they want?
