Washed Ashore Somber Island (OOC)
Captain Leonard loved his job. Driving around smiling faces, many of them newlyweds, around on their vacations. The water ahead looked clear. "A perfect day for boating.." He said in awe. The tropical sunset was magnificent, multiple colors of pinks and oranges scattered across the horizon. He was certain the passengers were thinking the same thing. He pictured a young couple, man holding the woman in a deep embrace. Both of them entranced by the lovely sky. "It looks like smooth sailing from here...."
Sometimes even the calmest skies can turn sour. The MerriTime Express was on the third leg of it's journey. There was four days until their next port destination and things looked otherwise normal. Nothing to be alarmed about. There was a constant hustle and bustle in the casino, show girls undulated their hips to upbeat Latin music. Everything was picturesque aboard the cruise ship. A the night drew in, the sky grew dark. Inky black cloud slowly invaded the blue skies. Things took a turn for gloomy. The boom of thunder sounded in the distance. A few passengers stood in awe at the growing storm. Little did they know, they would soon be swept under the salty waves, along with the luxurious cruise ship.
Waves pounded mercilessly upon the helpless vessel. Many passengers tried escaping on life boats, only to be hit with vicious waves, and dragged under the cold ocean. Many did not make it. But the few who did, were brave and lucky. Fate shined kindly on them. They found themselves washed ashore a desolate island. As if surviving the horrific boat incident wasn't enough, now they are faced with the need to rough mother nature. Will they work together or pull apart?

Your character sheet should look something like this:
Small Bio (2-4 paragraphs):
Ect: Anything special you feel the need to add.
Here is mine:
Name: Claudia Lovell.
Personality: Claudia is more shy than outgoing, preferring the company of her thoughts than conversation with others.
Bio: Claudia grew up an only child. She often spent her days in the confines of her nursery, reading books in her child sized rocking chair. Her mother and father often found their daughter strange. She was so unperson able. The other children rarely spoke to Claudia, let alone came over to play. They were worried she would grow up sad and depressed. They were partiality right to worry. As she grew, so did her awkwardness. The more she tried to socialize, the greater her distaste for it grew. She wasn't, however a sad young woman. Just realistic.
She flew through high school, her grades phenomenal due to the many hours locked up in dusty libraries with her nose in books. She never really fit in with the other children, though that was mostly due to lack of interest in the first place. She soon went on to university, studying to become a botanist. She had always loved plants. The uniqueness of their leaf shape, the vivid colors that they came in. She used to spend a lot of time in the town garden when she was young, delicately touching the silky petals between her fingertips. She only had a year to go before she graduated and her mother decided to treat her on a cruise. She was filled with glee! She had never been on the open seas, and longed to see it.
"Well, here I come ocean!"
Ect: She suffers from insomnia.
