New Fableshore V2 [Urban Dark Fairy Tales] .::Interest Check::.
« on: January 13, 2019, 02:45:40 PM »



Gms = Dhampyress & November Bleeds

Is a dark urban themed (or very close to) fantasy world, that focuses on the lives of fairy tale folk existing in line with more urban world themes (purely freeform). We have a lot of mature themes here, mixed in with a more close modern fantastical fairy-tale aesthetic. On the topic of aesthetic, Fableshore is a bit of a dim world, where nothing is quite perfect, and shady figures often move in the dark to effect the smaller folk, whilst inevitability having some pull on the strings of society . It is a place where many fairy tale figures are chasing new happy endings, in a strange and cynical place, unlike that of their home realms. A colossal and mysterious event known only as the Cataclysm, has brought these Fairy Tale folk together, leaving them in the new world that is Fableshore.

There is magic here, but it comes in a sort of altered form, generally speaking. There is adventure. There is drama. There is crime. There is love, and there is most certainly passions of everything that falls in between. That said, the game is very open to fantasy themes, and is heavily including of such elements within a more modern structure. I'd like to set few boundaries to allow players to contribute, include and create wonderful works of their own depictions of fairy tale characters, that players may be interested in playing in this sort of environment. This is in no way a fandom role-play of any existing fairy tale, and does not follow any one set verse of a singular fairy tale. We may also allow characters from myth as well.

The idea here is to allow you creative freedom in your own adaption of existing fairy tale folk. What if the story we think we know regarding a certain character is less true? Perhaps at the end there was more? It's up to you to fill in the blanks and really add your own touch to whomever it is you may have an interest in playing. The possibilities are quite endless! The game's general concept would work from a post-cataclysmic event that has set our characters in a new land, the realms in whence they came being unreachable. Ten years has since past, and Fableshore has found it's structure. However, to this day some Myst folk are still showing up. Players would be allowed to contribute to the world which such things as small business or interest groups that may exist in this contemporary setting.

The purpose of this game is to allow freedom and original creativity to contribute to the base of what is per-established within this world, and how it all works, which is a vast sandbox experience for anyone interested in these sorts of themes to enjoy. There will be a metaplot in play, but it will be explored through events. Events will be provided by GM's and will drive a focus to explaining some of the mysteries and unknowns the shape the world.

I'm looking for writers who prefer story orientated themes with mature content. There will be a private thread for erotic content. I'm looking for players who enjoy sandbox environments with a soft narrative existing in the background to help the world feel dynamic and flowing as we experience the modern tales of our characters lives. I'm looking for writers whom are not afraid to collaborate with their fellow players (or as you will learn them to be Mysts; in this realm). Most importantly I am looking for others who are creative and work well within groups. There is no demand for word count in posts or exact turn around time in a game. However, we would like to keep things as active as we possibly can. For now this thread exists solely as an interest check. If enough interest is shown we'll take the next steps. Furthermore, we are happy to answer any questions about the concept in the mean time.

The V2 in the title refers to a second version of the game. As sometime ago I experimented with this game on few occasions. This game is an entirely independent product of its own and does not connect to any former version or run of the game.

Characters that are currently reserved
(Since this is solely an interest check (at the moment). However, in light of some possible plans for the idea, some fairy tale folk have been reserved. These are;

Alice - Alice In Wonderland/Adventures/Looking Glass
Cinderella - Cinderella
Dorothy Gale - Wizard Of Oz
Jack Frost - Mythology
Big Bad Wolf - Little Red Riding Hood
Knave Of Hearts - Alice In Wonderland/Adventures
Peter Pan - Peter Pan
Mad Hatter - Alice In Wonderland/Adventures/Looking Glass

I would love to give my Mad Hatter (from V1) another go, as well as the club that I had made for him. Thoughts?

I think this is a great idea. If you'd like I could put down a reservation, in the mean time?

I'd be honored to have both of you. ;D

I'm vaguely interested in where this goes. Especially in playing Peter Pan. Innocent, naive, happy, excited, fun-loving, adventurous, low attention span. Perhaps running his own gang of street thief boys ala Oliver Twist.

I have a few groups in mind that may inhabit the world of Fableshore and have some effect on within its contemporary state. One such group was a street gang known as the Lost Boys, which is implied to have connections to Peter Pan. The group may also have a lieutenant figure that was something of a spin-off of Wendy Darling. Wendy would be a kind of NPC, as I'd prefer Peter to run things. As much as I would prefer a player leader make decisions for the group.

My larger vision was to make a kind of trinity of gang / criminal groups, that each range in differing degree within their criminality and affairs. The Lost Boys were intended to be more of a lowly group, centered around mischief and hooliganism. I was curious to know if something like this might find some congruence with your thoughts for Peter?

Yeah, I can get behind that. They're not out and out criminals. I would say that Peter Pan would be too innocent to do anything really sinister or evil. But at the same time, he's also amoral. Perhaps very slightly sociopath. Neither a sense of good morality or a lack of morality. Simply no view on morality itself. He doesn't really understand the things he's doing are bad and he's doing them for fun. Only really seeing himself as the most important person. So, like you said, low level mischief and hooliganism. Like I said with the group of thieves. He cares about the people in the group to the extent that they can help him have fun.

Very much so childish in thought and reason. The way a child only really cares about themselves and doesn't really care about the world around them. Perhaps he doesn't really intend to harm others, hence not really understanding that what he's doing is bad, but it's a byproduct of only caring about himself.

So then, also like a child, he's heavily dependent on other people for moral and emotional support as well as survival generally. He cares about other people to the extent that they will help him. Which is why he can latch on to a Wendy figure as a caretaker for them.

If you want to take it higher, his group could easily be taken advantage of by another higher criminal gang that absolutely is evil. This goes along with being innocent and naive. Getting Peter Pan's Lost Boys to do some things that maybe stretch that envelope a little bit. But he's not going to do anything too insanely evil.

Does this all make sense? Basically just a child in terms of morality and innocence. Thinking of himself first. Easily manipulated and misled. Dependent on others. Caring about people only to the extent of what they can do for him. And otherwise doing what he does just for his own entertainment and low attention span.

I think your idea for gangs and Peter Pan is a stellar match, seems like a great fit for both the design and for tons of RP opportunities.  I and tried to decide what would be the best place to fit I in (in a world full of myths and fairytales, I know how that sounds).  I would be curious if there will be a good component to offset the criminal organizations even though I believe in the first v1 they were a little bit jaded as well?  I would be interested in such a group as I’m not sure I’m cut out for evil goings on like some of you!

I absolutely love how you've broken this down. I think it's perfect for the kind of group, that Peter's gang could be. I also adhere to the way you've justified his morality and think it would fit smoothly into the scheme of how it may be involved with some of the other groups. These are some lovely ideas and I completely stand by them.

In the meantime, would you like me to tentatively reserve the character for you? :-)

Perhaps I should release more of my ideas for some of the other groups as well? Admittedly, I only had two with some structure in mind with a potential third being more open to possibility. That is so long as it doesn't seem redundant of one of the other two groups.

I would be curious if there will be a good component to offset the criminal organizations even though I believe in the first v1 they were a little bit jaded as well?  I would be interested in such a group as I’m not sure I’m cut out for evil goings on like some of you!

Yes! There certainly will be. I can say that there will be a group dedicated to the task of looking into affairs that generally effect the Mysts. There will also be a police department as well, that has something of shifting reputation among Mysts in Fableshore. The first group won't be associated so much on a policing level, as much as they will deal with more esoteric matters and affairs, which would be be involved with revealing some of the mysteries about the town. Both groups would act as more do-gooder organizations meant to counter some of the criminality and injustice in our setting.

Yeah sure. I'll watch to see if more interest forms as well.

Well that's just the thing. Peter's not evil at all. He does what he does for fun, no morality about it. He could equally do good things as bad things as long as they make him happy and excited. If he steals a bunch of money he could equally end up giving it out to a bunch of people and feel happy seeing them smiling and grateful and willing to help him out. Or he could use all that money to buy something insanely lavish just for himself.

The thing with good deeds is that they're ultimately self serving. He does them to make himself feel good because he likes to see other people happy and likes people liking him. Because if they like him, they'll be more likely to do things for him. And Peter Pan is ultimately the most important person in Peter Pan's life.

Updated. And I've edited my last post to sort of provide more information on some of my thoughts for more moral abiding groups.

Hi there! I wanted to say that I find your story idea very interesting.

I also wanted to check and see if you already had something in mind for the city's politics, because I find myself, right away, drawn to the idea of Maleficent as the wicked, corrupt mayor, with a thirst for power that she will do anything to quench.
Who uses her own enforcers, her unique brand of black magic, and a particularly sadistic dominatrix streak to push the city toward her personal brand of Hell...

This was just an initial thought. So if that seems like it would be messing too much with your original plot, don't feel bad to let me know ^•^

I do like the premise of this character idea. I don't think it would be outside the theme of the game to play Maleficent in a mayor role with the dominatrix streak. Fableshore is no stranger to deviants being in seats of political power. However, my only concern with the idea is how effective such an impact might be on the setting itself. I totally advocate the idea of her pursuing such an agenda, but I wonder how you might take to the idea of a coterie of folks potentially working against that. This way that theme can be present but in not such a way that it might not take too much of a toll on other players and their concepts, as not everyone might want to be pulled into something like this.

Do you think something like that might work for what you had in mind?

Really enjoying the concepts so far that everyone has come up with! I'm curious to see how everything will unfold and it's truly proving to be a mischievous universe which brings all the more fun!

Just to let everyone know, Pyress and I were thinking that each player is allowed up to three characters! Of course, we're understanding if players wish to begin with just one and move from there, but thought we would leave the option open.

Speaking of organizations, The Big Bad Wolf is one of my characters and the original concept I had for him in a previous version of the game was a detective/police role ((which was inspired by Bigby Wolf from Fables, or to some; The Wolf Among Us)). I figure having him within this sort of role could add to the drama going around with all the devious Mysts running around. This could leave potential for some character connections with those leaning on either causing trouble or those wishing to prevent it. If anyone wants to have some background with him too, I have no doubt we could work something out given his occupation. :D

I don't think that would be a problem at all. I have no desire to actually control the city, or other people's characters (unless they find themselves strapped to her desk  >:) ). Nor do I have a desire to be OP at all. I believe the part of this character that would be the most fun, is when people do actively get in the way of her desires or thwart her. That's when she gets to make up all her evil plans.

From what I see from this game, most characters are criminals or otherwise work outside of the law, so there is no reason the mayor would have any real pull over them. So in a manner of speaking she would be like another criminal presence in the city. Just one with a more formal gang, and city hall as a hideout.
