Any Nobilis GMs out there?
« on: June 25, 2007, 09:26:48 PM »
Long strange story, but Circlmastr talked me into buying this coffee table book of a game, see, 'cause he wanted someone to run it.  He had a cool idea, and a cool concept...and I just plain dropped the proverbial ball (on the original idea, at least).

So he and I are more or less in the market for a HG who can handle such a diverse pair of players as ourselves.  ;D

Drop us a line, if interested!

I've got a friend pushing this game on me too, but I know full well I can't run it right now.

Le sigh.
Anyone else?  (makes big googly panda eyes of supplication)

I might be persuaded to do a game, since I like both you and Circl, and have lost my mind.

What sort of concept do you have in mind?

I had nothing in particular in mind, but I'm in a game where each of the PCs embody one of the Major Arcana in some way.  That seems to have worked out pretty well.

Any input, Circ?

Repinging.

Surely out there, someone else has run this...

(And the other game went belly-up some time ago, so we can probably recycle the Major Arcana idea without stepping on anyone's toes.)

I know Circl may also be interested, and considering your preferences, we might do a Dragon-Monkey-Rat zodiac game. I'm divided over whether to have there be Nobilis other than the Zodiac- I'm thinking I'd like to let this game be directed by the players. Think of me as the river, and yourselves as the shore.

Furthermore, by the way, should we not have a third person who we really want, might always make amusement to have the third member an NPC.

Monkey for me.  Am reading Journey to the West, and the Great Sage Equal to Heaven gets the first eighteen chapters more or less to himself and his antics...  :)

This would be potentially interesting if I could understand the Nobilis book at all.

Then it looks like things are looking cool for us. We have any wish for a specific focus? I'm ready to produce a Small Game. What level do we want?

Now there's a problem!  As we have a distinct lack of female PCs thus far, I'd say non-adult or Vanilla (just in case).

Trying to get my head around a reasonable template for a Monkey-lord.

Can't see why not.

We have a unifying concept which, if memory serves, is to have each character based around one of the animals in the Chinese Zodiac (or, rather, some element that they represent).  Dragon and Monkey are taken.

(I was in a game that went belly up, but there we were supposed to base our characters on cards out of the Major Arcana.  There was some confusion because the title of the card does not necessarily represent the area of interest!  The Death card, for example, does not mean death...anyway, it was a cool idea, and I suggested it to Ajoxer and Circ when we first considered this game.)

Coolness.  :)

It makes a handy motif, if nothing else.  Or a cool nickname.  "This is our brother, Vinny the Snake."

I'm still dubbing seriously as to what my main Estate will be.

If nothing else, you could always pick one of the many, many associations with Snake.  There are a lot of those...

For me, it's a bit easier.  Monkey implies Mischief.  And also Monkey-style kung fu...  :)

Well it's more that I am dubbing wether to be really good at my Domain stuff, or actually just be a personification of Snake. Both are actually quite interesting.

The snake has quite some nice tricks up his sleeves, wether as the first or the latter option.
