ISC Phoenix - Volume 1

A civilian ship captained by Luca Pavone, a Star Army veteran and former member of the YSS Goban crew.

Phoenix in Roleplay

The Phoenix was currently running here. It was run by Luca. The Plot's major focus is on action with a comedic twinge in some parts. Although, anything could happen on this ship, literally. The Phoenix plot began prior to October 04, 2007 (it was on the previous forum).

Where do I sign up?

Crew Rank Structure

The Rank Structure of the Phoenix is based on Playing Cards in the Spades Suit. Different suits may be used if the Phoenix expands to a large scale.

Card Suits and Rankings

  • Spade - People in the Spades Suit are usually thrown facefirst into combat (with their own legs), and usually come out unscathed. Spades also overlap with leadership roles when other suits are involved.
  • Diamonds - Those in the Diamond Suit are responsible for making sure supplies are bought, managed and maintained. They also have an overlap with the mechanical aspects of the ship, such as keeping it running and inventing gadgetry.
  • Hearts - The Hearts suit is required to be able to look out for your fellow crewman. This is usually done by keeping them fed, watered, patched up and happy.
  • Clubs - Unfittingly, the Clubs' job is to put a good face on the Phoenix brand, manage information and intel. They are also responsible for representing Luca when he cannot properly represent himself. (A mercifully rare occurrence.)
Overall Spades Diamonds Hearts Clubs
Joker (Admiral) The Ultimate Badass
Ace (Commodore) One Man Army The Resourceful The Provider Spymaster
King/Queen (Captain) Walking Tank Industrious Reanimator Cunning Linguist
Jack (First Mate) Bullet Cyclone Quartermaster Doctor in the House Lawyer
9 (Senior Member) Bullet Biter Gearhead Supreme Tested Surgeon Boardroom Battler
7 (Member) Bullet Hitter Gearhead Improvised Surgeon Honest Face
5 (Junior Member) Bullet Spitter Gear Spinner Organ Gatherer Trickster
3 (Helper) Bullet Counter Shelf Stacker Bandage Carrier PR Stuntman

The above nicknames were 'appropriate', according to Mr. Pavone, in spite of being subject to some revision.


Currently, the ISC Phoenix is not looking for crew members. There is no need to PM Luca for openings or Applications.

Places of Operation


The History of the ISC Phoenix is split into 'Seasons' for ease of reading.
