“For it is related in our records how once upon a time your State stayed the course of a mighty host, which, starting from a distant point in the Atlantic ocean, was insolently advancing to attack the whole of Europe, and Asia to boot. For the ocean there was at that time navigable; for in front of the mouth which you Greeks call, as you say, 'the pillars of Heracles,' there lay an island which was larger than Libya and Asia together; and it was possible for the travelers of that time to cross from it to the other islands, and from the islands to the whole of the continent over against them which encompasses that veritable ocean. For all that we have here, lying within the mouth of which we speak, is evidently a haven having a narrow entrance; but that yonder is a real ocean, and the land surrounding it may most rightly be called, in the fullest and truest sense, a continent. Now in this island of Atlantis there existed a confederation of kings, of great and marvelous power, which held sway over all the island, and over many other islands also and parts of the continent.” from Timaeus, Plato

For centuries, human beings have pursued the meaning of Atlantis. Central to their beliefs is that it is merely an allegory stemming from Timaeus and Critias as nothing more than the representation of the antagonist that besieges Ancient Athens. The true story is rooted even deeper than that, dating back much further than Plato. Three hundred years earlier, the story was recounted by Solon, who heard it from Egyptian priests, who in turn had discovered it through pre-existing texts.

Yes, friends, the true story of Atlantis runs much deeper than just myths and allegories.

While Plato was in no way the first great thinker that the term ‘philosopher’ should be applied to, he was the sole innovator behind the subject of philosophy as it is now - a rigorous and systematic examination of ethical, political, metaphysical, and epistemological issues, armed with a distinctive method. He founded the Academy of Athens, which birthed many a renowned thinker and philosopher. A man of his stature would not use the existence of an island as an allegory, some metaphor to be debated over for thousands of years. And that is where I need your help.

My name is Dr. Elliott Ross, and I think after thousands of years of debate, I am the first person to truly discover the position of the Lost City. And if I’m right… it’s still intact.

_________________________________________________________________________________________

The Lost City will be an adventurous roleplay, set in the year 2120 in an underwater expedition to discover the lost city of Atlantis, through boon and bane, and through hell and high water (pun intended). Looking for at least 5 interested players to crew the ship, the S.M.V. Critias. Below are a list of positions that would be found on the crew, but not every position necessarily needs to be filled and more positions are available depending on what you had in mind.

There is exactly one way and only one way to crew the Critias, and that is to receive a letter from the United Nations First Nautical Expeditionary Force. This letter could be received directly, or received by one’s employer requesting service for any number of reasons. Reasons such as these could include military experience, accolades, credentials, and years of experience. Your character has done something to catch the attention of the United Nations, and while this doesn’t necessarily need to be discussed in-character (as officers will be prevented from discussing classified information pertaining to reasons for hiring), but it does make for interesting side-plots.

There are well over 100 people on board the Critias, as it is an internationally-funded military expedition, so as such I will not be putting a limit to how many characters you can make. In fact, I don’t even want you guys to write character sheets, I just want you to write and develop believable characters that could help contribute to the plot. However, on that note, if you would like to use faceclaims, I will gladly add them into a character-tracker section in the OOC.

Looking for at least five interested players, but would be willing to run with more than that. Crew positions (note: not all of these need to be filled) include but are not limited to:

The Administrative Dept. ( led by an officer with the title of “Admin”) is the smallest of the departments, and includes these Divisions:

    Yeoman (YN) – enlisted personnel that maintain all service records, make sure everybody's pay and benefits are squared away, and handle almost all written correspondence to and from the boat.

    Culinary Specialist (CS) – the cooks who prepare all the food for the crew

    Logistics Specialist (LS) – personnel who order all supplies for the boat. Headed by the Supply Officer (also known as the "Chop"), who is also division officer for the CS. The Chop is the only officer on a submarine not nuclear-qualified.

    Independent Duty Corpsman (IDC) – the IDC is a Hospital Corpsman (HM) with special schooling to be the sole medical professional on a ship. He also maintains the medical records for each crewmember, including radiation dose records.

The Operations Dept. is led by an officer with the title of “Navigator” as the department head and includes these Divisions:

    Electronics Technician, Navigation (ET-Nav) – part of the SECF family of ratings, responsible for navigation, and maintenance of the ship's charts, and navigation electronics equipment, including radar.

    Electronics Technician, Communication (ET-Comm) – led by a DivO titled the "Communicator" and used to be known as "Radiomen"; perform all electronic communication to and from the boat.

The Weapons Dept. is led by the "Weps," or Weapons Officer, and is the second largest department on a sub, consisting of:

    Sonar Technicians (ST) – part of the SECF family, operate sonar gear. SONAR stands for “sound navigation and ranging," the sole means of locating, identifying, and tracking submarines and surface ships. Without them, a submarine is blind.

    Fire Control Technicians (FT) – also part of the SECF family; work closely with Sonar to target and guide the ship's weapons systems, and maintain the boat’s computer network.

    Missile Technicians (MT) – found only on "boomer" (SSBN) subs, they maintain the Trident missiles and launching systems.

    Machinist's Mates, Weapons (MM-Weps) – formerly called “Torpedomen” (TM), they maintain the torpedoes and (if carried) guided missiles, plus their launching systems.

The Engineering Dept. (the “Nukes” or “Nucs”) is led by the "Engee," or Engineer Officer, unquestionably the hardest working officer on a submarine. Engineering includes these Divisions:

    Auxiliary (M-Aux) – also known as “A-gangers,” their officer is the Damage Control Asst. (DCA) and are the only non-nuclear trained members of Engineering. As Machinist's Mates (MM), they maintain:

    1) ship's control systems that control steering and depth control, and their hydraulic system
    2)high pressure air systems (and air compressors) critical for ship's safety
    3) the emergency diesel generator, used as a source of power in the event the reactor must be shutdown at sea
    4) atmosphere control equipment:

    a. that which produces oxygen and eliminates CO2 and other atmosphere contaminants
    b. ventilation blowers moving air through the boat
    c. coolers that cool air
    d. ship's refrigeration equipment
    e. damage control and firefighting equipment.

Side note: In spite of this being an overwhelmingly-military expedition, there will be at least one archaeologist on board by the name of Dr. Elliott Ross. Where there is one archaeologist, there may be one or two more, or an assistant of some kind, if none of the military jargon suits your fancy.

Knew I could count on you~

Also, if none of the military jargon suits your fancy, there will be at least one archaeologist on board (Elliott Ross), so there could always be ~another~ archaeologist, or an assistant of some sort. I'll go back and include that in the original post.

I am interested, if you will have me!

I would be interested in taking the IDC and potentially another archeologist or assistant, if possible.

Is this by chance still looking for members? I know it's been awhile, but I'm very interested!

Whoops! Sorry to leave everyone hanging. I'd offer excuses, but I don't have one, I'm just a piece of **** haha.

Is everyone still interested this? @AhZombies BABS YOU DOWN?

No worries, I'm glad you're still game! It looks like Corrin hasn't been on since April, so we're still in the recruiting stage, so you have plenty of time to take care of business. :)
