So, this is the titanic rp. It is not based off of the movie, just the event, so be whoever you want to be, but on the first day of every month (happy april fools day!) all your characters D<_>IE. Anyone can rp any number of glaciers, the more glaciers, the funnier it is to watch y'all D<_>IE. You can rp characters from other shows and movies (no superpowers, please. No half-animal half-humans. Nothing that isn't day-to-day in real life (you can be animals, people, that stuff.). I'll just leave it at that.). On the first week (discluding the first day) of every month, we bring new passengers on board (meaning that for the first week of every month everyone MUST ADVERTISE). <p> P.s. each month, the first one to update their bio and say they are captain in their bio wins the position (hint: it will never be me, so take that position!)! Bios res3, rp res2.
