Anyone who wants to sign up as a passenger check out the OOC thread: HAS Antigone
No more crew members unless you already have a spot reserved.
Ratchet ran his hoof along the vibrating engine, its iron casing warmed from the friction of the slowly rotating motor. Ever since Kyros had given him a job on the The Antigone he had thought of the spectacular airship as his child and his home. He had become so used to to the rocking of the deck and the steady vibration from the engine room that he got dizzy whenever he stood on the ground. When he first joined the crew, he separated himself from all of the other airponies, preferring to hide away with the machinery in the engine room. Over the years he began to warm up to the other crewmen, and after a while he started to think of them as family. Now was different though, the old crew had left when the war started, hoping to keep from getting involved. The only ones left were him and Kyros, and that crazy cook who had some sort of strange fascination with lemons. Ratchet didn't feel like meeting the new crew members, but Kyros had asked him to be there when they boarded, captains orders. Ratchet sulkily made his way up to the main deck where Kyros would be lowering the boardwalk.
((A little background, The Antigone is docked at a mooring mast sort of like a zeppelin or a blimp. No characters save for Ratchet, Kyros, and Lemony Snickers. If your character is an airman or woman then they have most likely been on an airship of some kind before. If you are a recruit then this will be a first encounter of sorts.))
