I have registered to find out the interest level in a a game world I have started.
It is based on the A Song of Ice and Fire chronicles by George R. R. Martin, made famous by HBO as the Game of Thrones.
The time line would start 2 years previous to the show and books.
It is a socially based, politically heavy, adult themed, character-centric, gritty world of Westeros, where almost everyone has an agenda and death is not always glorious or the end...
The one alteration to many of the RP forum worlds rules, is that there would be character death, but it not the intent of the Narrator to make this a common thing.
Characters would not be from the cast of the books, but the creation from a Minor House.
Ideally, characters will be given a base outline of what House history currently exists, and I am open to the creation of said history, but somethings I need to have in place to tie in the plot lines.
Initially, Players would be assigned one character to control, with the potential of running different characters from other Houses or all from the same House, if that was something people were willing to take on, but it is not a requirement, nor a goal, just an option.
It would be up to the players what roles they wished to play, from House Lord, to Maester, Septa or Septon, Heir, smallfolk, retainer, hedge knight, swornsword, sellsword, merchant, soldier, the choices are endless.
I would make use of a 'dicing system' that I have created as well for story challenges, that is unique and ASOIAF specific.
Now, before you all get gooey on me...
I have never run a PbP mail RP before.
However, I have been gaming for, well, a long, long time.
I am running this currently for a group of players in an actual RP game, based on Green Ronin's published works of the same name. And part of me would like to incorporate players from this game into the actual RP world, where YOU would run your Houses, and your agendas would take effect in the RP world of the other gamers. This way, I do not need to control or create the machinations of 245,245,825,452 other people... No, I am not looking for you to do my work for me, that is not the point. I just wanted to explore another avenue where other people can 'play' along in the game world, and have direct and meaningful impact on other people.
Let loose the ravens with your messages!
I look forward to hearing from you!
Oh, and yes, I have not created a banner, nor a page to build upon this, as looking at the age on some of the forums, I don't want to build something that no one reads until I get an idea if anyone is actually reading this.
