Stay a While, and Listen
Greetings, fellow Elliquians, and welcome to my Role Playing Request Thread. Here, I will be listing all of my rambling, incoherent shreds of half-plots that will hopefully serve to inspire some form engaging role play between us.
There are a few things you may wish to know about me. I am a male, and my main characters will likewise be male. I'm certainly not against playing female characters as "NPCs" or background cast members, but will generally never serve as the focus of my side of things. I pretty much always play more dominant roles, though I'm not always seeking someone who's totally a pushover. Typically, I RP over threads and PMs, though I do have various messenger services, and occasionally RP over those as well. I like to think I'm fairly literate, and try to write detailed posts. The length of these posts will vary depending on a number of factors such as how inspired I am, how much I have to work with, how much energy/motivation I have at that moment, and probably moon cycles or something. My posting rates fluctuate depending on my work schedule and general motivation (often related), but I usually try to post every day or two. If I'm anticipating any significant delays, I'll be sure to let you know.
Please also understand that what follows is by no means a comprehensive list of what I'm looking for, but a few general ideas that happen to have popped in to my head at some point. I have interest in a variety of settings, characters and ideas, so if you've got some wickedly impressive RP idea of your own, feel free to share and we'll see if we can work something out.
Red Moon's Likes and Dislikes
You can find a lot of these linked in my signature, but, I'll reiterate here for simplicity.
Women - Obviously.
MFF/MFFF/Etc - Many women! Or at least more than one. I always enjoy a harem spin on any idea. A partner willing to play multiple characters will have my undying affection! Do not have to be at the same time, I should point out. Just the variety is nice.
Exotic Women - Exotic races in sci-fi or fantasy scenarios are great. Otherwise, just women from far off lands or cultures are always interesting.
Sexy Outfits - I always love a lady who knows how to dress to impress (or seduce).
Dominance - As stated, my characters are generally dominant. This does not mean you have to be submissive, but it probably does mean you're going to wind up submitting.
Rough Play - Rough sex, hair pulling, biting, scratching, etc. Grr.
Story - Smut is fine, but, if we're doing sex scene all the time, I'm going to get bored. The story is what keeps me coming back for more.
Creativity - Surprise me! Throw in some of your own ideas. You don't even need to tell me!

What I'd like From a Partner
So let's talk about you. Your actual gender does not actually matter to me. I do, however, generally prefer my partners to play female characters. I do make occasional exceptions to this, but, primarily, that's what I'd like. I'm picky about spelling and grammar, and I expect my partners to reciprocate the amount of effort I put in to a posting. I like detail, description, and I like to develop the plot and the characters within it. Ideally, you will also like those things, because it gets very boring writing with a partner who's just responding to me, instead of incorporating their own ideas and pushing things forward along with me. Don't concern yourself with things like post length, as that will always depend on the scene. Let's just try keeping each other engaged, yes?
Ideally, I'd like a response or two a week, and I will do my best to reciprocate. Delays are understandable, so just let me know if you're running behind.
One final note! I like interesting PMs. I'm less likely to respond to something like "Hey, I like this idea", or worse, "Hey, I like all your ideas".
Many people throughout the ages have had a desire to change the world. It’s difficult to look out your window, or turn on your television and see nothing but violence, war, crime, political tensions, economic crises, hatred and cruelty, and think that the human race will survive. Sometimes, it’s difficult to think that the human race even should survive. While many dream of change for the better, few have the intelligence, the drive or the resources to actually make change happen. Of those people, even fewer get proper opportunities to implement their ideas, fighting for grant money, or perhaps never even given a proper education or job. Regardless of all circumstances, even once or twice in a generation when a true visionary comes along, someone with the drive and resources to change the world, those people are limited by the same factor that limits all humans: Time.
The world moves slowly, and people don’t react well to sudden, drastic changes. Even the most brilliant innovator is held back by those around him or her, tied up in red tape, forced to delay their work to accommodate people who don’t even understand them. Should they even see their dream to fruition, who is to say what will happen after? Will their vision persist, or will tides of hatred and misunderstanding see them undone? There is only so much one individual can do within the limited constraints of their lifespan, and after all, all men must die… Or must they?
Conspiracy theorists have long suggested that secret organizations exist, people trying to control the world and the people in it, shaping the destiny of mankind. The Illuminati, the Masons, or even wilder theories like lizard people have existed in popular culture for centuries. These theories always depict groups of powerful, wealthy, influential men and women, meeting in secret gatherings, toying with the lives of those beneath them… The truth, however, is even stranger. Even the Illuminati, should they exist, would be but men and women, limited by the same constraints of time that all humans suffer from. Those who hold real power, then, the ability to make real changes, must be able to see their visions survive through the ages. If real change must be implemented slowly, then those who seek change must be able to last through the ages… Which is where Club Eternal comes in.
This secretive organization has lived and operated in the shadows for hundreds of years, seeking to bring about the betterment and continued survival of the human race, through any means necessary. In addition to having wealth, power and influence, each member of this group also has something special; Immortality. It is, in fact, a requirement for entry, though all types of ageless beings are accepted. Vampire? Contract with a demon? Actually a demon? Cursed by a witch? Keep reincarnating yourself? Transferred your mind in to a cyborg body? If you meet any of these conditions or more, and have a desire to make the world a better place, you may find a home among the Club and its members.
Over the years, this organization has toppled regimes, changed the sway of government and public opinion, both started and ended wars, propagated or hidden technological advancement as necessary, spread medicine, or sometimes disease, assassinated, stolen, sabotaged, and taken every necessary step to see the human race through to a future where it survives. While their methods aren’t always agreeable, as immortals, these individuals play the long game. A few lives lost here and there, or even a few million lives lost, are seen as necessary steps on the path to the future. Now, when a new member discovers the Club and is brought in to the fold, how will they take these discoveries? Will they sign on to fight for the greater good? Try to change the ways of the immortals in charge? Or perhaps try to expose the Club and its members, to stop their apparent tyranny? Only time will tell, and time is something in no short supply.
So, this RP would take place in a world where various immortal creatures manipulate human society from the shadows. There are a lot of directions this could go in, but I see the most likely setup as being a young immortal just stumbling upon the club or one of their older, more established members. The older member takes on a bit of a mentor role, introduces the fledgling to this secret society and their rules, and perhaps together, they try and make a difference. Assassination, sabotage, espionage, political intrigue, seduction, manipulation… There’s plenty to do and explore here. This could also take place in a number of different time periods. Modern or near future are probably easiest, but I’m flexible there.
I’m pretty open on who either of us play, and where this story goes, so feel free to make suggestions! This might even work for a small group game.
Some visual inspiration:Cyborg? Vampire? Both? Either way, a deadly assassin.It’s not all lounging around and looking decadent, but, that’s part of it.Immortality doesn’t always mean you don’t have to fear dangerous work.Sometimes when someone is in your way, it’s best to make them submit, rather than remove them.Club Eternal operates all across the world… With plenty of shady organizations.When seduction doesn’t work, there are other options…
It all started when a new star appeared in the sky, brighter and more prominent than the rest. Some interpreted it as a good omen, others as one of ill portent, but life went on regardless. Over the coming months, the star grew larger, and things on the world below started to go awry. Incidents of magical accidents became more frequent, it was more difficult to communicate with deities, the dead became restless, and dark powers grew more active. The energies that flowed through the world and allowed for magic of all kinds was becoming unstable and erratic. The symptoms only grew worse as the star grew large, approaching rapidly from the depths of space, until it was close enough to observe. It appeared to be a small moon, sinister in appearance, pitted and scarred, full of deep black crevices and glowing craters. As it drew nearer, panic began to spread. Would it come crashing down upon the world, obliterating all life? Efforts were made to stop it using magic, but such efforts proved useless, and the great rituals themselves unreliable. The gods, wherever they were, seemed unresponsive, allowing increasingly rare contact with the faithful to fuel their divine magic.
Finally, the moon came to a stop, directly in orbit above the world. Meteors and debris rained down, wreaking untold destruction, crippling major cities and trade routes, wiping some centers of civilization off of the map entirely. Creatures unheard of crawled from the craters to haunt the lands, the skies grew permanently darker, nature and magic twisting with some strange corruption. Even the evil gods vanished then, leaving only a strange new magic, chaotic and corrupting, and plenty of unpleasant horrors stalking the nights. The civilized races were crippled, but not destroyed. Small towns and cities, limited in communication, are still scattered across the land. People go about their lives, albeit in a much more perilous fashion now. Society has adapted, growing as dark and twisted as the world around them in some cases. The cathedrals and churches of old are now infested by strange cults who worship these unknowable forces from beyond the stars, some even surrendering to or welcoming their corrupting, chaotic influence. These churches are often dens of depravity, filled with cannibalism, ritual sacrifice, and twisted orgies. The gods of old, if they were still alive, would surely be horrified. Despite this, such organizations seem to be spared the wrath of these otherworldly invaders, and even small villages regularly sacrifice their own to monstrous creatures or dark powers in their regions to stay alive.
It's a grim, hopeless world, where every day is a struggle against corruption, and the corrupted. Depravity and despair are abound, and only the brave venture forth between the ruins of the old world... Or those who have already fallen to corruption.Overview
- A more traditional fantasy world gone wrong, your typical sword and sorcery setting after something awful happens, and the world is all but ruined.
- Corruption is a strong element, as magic is now very dangerous. Mutations occur easily, leading to all sorts of strange physical traits.
- Depravity is common as people turn to the powers of chaos, some needing protection and lacking alternatives, some just giving up.
- The Gods are missing or dead, so divine powers are gone. Arcane power, driving the forces of magic, is severely corrupted, and dangerous to use.
Inspirational Images (Some NSFW)Ruins!More ruins!Cults and demons!The powers of chaos are tempting...Church service tends to be more lively now.Though strange cults are now the norm.Many have turned to the new powers to survive.... Though some still stand against them.
- My character here will likely be a fallen Paladin, led to bitterness and anger after his gods abandoned him, leaving him powerless. Now little more than a mercenary swordsman, he has to rely on his martial skills alone to survive.
- Your character could be any kind of survivor, adventurer or something more mundane. Someone who has already been influenced by the forces of chaos, or someone who has managed to evade their corrupting touch?
Like many cliche settings combining our two favorite kinds of disposable cannon-fodder enemies, we're going to mix in some occult to a WW2 setting. Towards the end of the war, being pushed back towards Berlin on all fronts, the Nazi occult division unleashed a last resort weapon which caused the dead to rise as flesh eating monsters. Allied forces were crippled, and cities around the world fell as legions of undead monsters rose up to consume the living. Some possible ideas:
- A surviving Allied soldier in Germany meets a surviving German occult officer. The pair (and possibly others) must reluctantly cooperate to undo the disaster
- A group of survivors are trying to reach a rumored untouched area (possibly Australia, because presumably the Nazi zombies are afraid of all the spiders)
- Any other generic zombie apocalypse survival setup, but with NAZIS and OCCULT
I’ve been in the mood for vampire RP again! While my other vampire plot on here is more of a contemporary thing, this would be more focused in a fantasy, or at least historical environment. Like most of my RPs, I like to take inspiration from numerous sources, but I rarely like to commit to a single canon setting or characters. As such, knowledge of any source material I reference here isn’t actually necessary; though feel free to look in to them for inspiration if you wish!
First up, a fantasy-themed setting based on the Legacy of Kain series. In the land of Nosgoth, the balance of the world is sustained by magical artifacts known as the nine Pillars of Nosgoth. Seeking power, a vampire known as Kain destroyed the guardians of these pillars, resulting in the slow corruption of the land itself. Rather than ending his own life to put things right, he embraced his vampirism, and created an empire of the undead. Now, centuries later, the world is slowly tearing itself apart. Vampires are the dominant species in the world, human civilization has fallen in to decay, and the undead empire ruled by Kain has grown decadent and complacent. Surviving humans are often slaves, or at least prey, hunted for sport by vampire nobles who rule over various regions.
Most human cities are gone, replaced by sprawling warrens of undead and their servants. Vampire politics involve power struggles between clans, fighting for favor with Kain, territory, hunting rights, or ownership of groups of humans. Even within the vampire clans, however, there are further dissenting opinions. Rampant hunting and killing of humans has led to dwindling populations… And food supply. Not to mention, the earth itself is slowly tearing itself apart, with natural disasters increasing in frequency and severity due to Kain leeching power from the nine Pillars to sustain his iron grasp on the empire which he has forged. There are dark times ahead for the vampires, and even darker for the humans, unless something can be done to set things straight…
I see this RP going the way of a reluctant collaboration between some vampires who believe that Kain and his methods are destroying the earth, and human resistance fighters who are simply trying to survive. I’m willing to discuss either role, but I’m leaning a little more towards playing a human. Up for discussion, though!
Some visual inspiration:Human kingdoms have been left to crumble…While dark vampire cities spread both above and below the ground.Vampires are fierce opponents, but humans are embracing new technology to fight back.Despite their natural prowess, unwary vampires might find themselves at a disadvantage.
Second, an alternate, and not yet fully fleshed out idea, I’d enjoy playing something in the Old-Old World of Darkness, IE Dark Ages: Vampire. I enjoy the canon clans here, so I don’t think there’s any need to deviate from the setting too much, but I’m pretty flexible. Will add some more detail to the idea as I cook stuff up, but for now, it’s at least an option for those interested.
The world of Athas is a blasted wasteland, ruined by power-mad mages determined to reach the status of gods. Desert sands and jagged mountains are all that remain of the once vibrant world, scorched every day by the blazing crimson sun. Vicious beasts and giant insects prowl the wastes, along with bands of marauders, savages and cannibals, creeping around the outskirts of the civilized world… If it can be called that. Tyrannical sorcerer-kings, descendants of those who broke the world, rule over the cities with an iron fist. Slavery is commonplace, and all are subject to the whims of these mad despots and their unstoppable arcane powers. Corruption runs rampant among those in any position of power, greed and desperation motivating anyone with the will to survive. Life is brutal for those without wealth, but what choice does one have when the desert itself is as lethal as anything in it?
The ancient stone cities rising from the cracked and blasted ground are the only known sanctuaries left, and travel between them is perilous. Merchant caravans can make a fortune, if they are brave enough to journey between them, but such expeditions are lost to the wasteland as often as they are to it’s denizens. Water is more precious than gold, and metal even more so. Stone, obsidian and bone form most weapons, leather and chitin most armor, and most construction overall. Large beasts are hunted for their bones and pelts, with no wood to speak of available. Countless slaves work endlessly in mines and quarries, extracting stone and obsidian, desperately searching for valuable metals for their masters. These poor souls are worked to death under the blazing sun, and are easily replaced. Those who do not comply are dealt with swiftly and brutally, and those few who escape are claimed by the deserts…
Magic is a strange, reviled and dangerous power wielded only by a few, but psionics are more common, abilities like telepathy and telekinesis taking their place. Individuals with such gifts are highly regarded, while those who display hints of magical ability are either hunted and killed, or enslaved and made thralls of the sorcerer kings.
This is a world where only the strong survive, a brutal and cruel wasteland with little hope for anyone save the wealthy and powerful.Overview
- Based, of course, on the TSR setting Dark Sun. No knowledge of this setting is required.
- Think Sword and Sorcery meets Mad Max.
- Corruption, slavery and tyranny are accepted parts of daily life. Even most slaves think little of freedom.
- There are no gods here. The sorcerer kings are worshipped, often by force, their powerful magics keeping their subjects in check.
Inspirational Images (Some NSFW)A savage world where mercy is rarely found.A typical settlement.Does glory await those who venture in to the wastes? Or only death?Gladiator matches are a common form of entertainment.Magic is dangerous, forbidden to all but the sorcerer kings.
- I have a vague idea for a savage, uncompromising character raised in slavery, often used as a gladiator. A half-giant, he was prized for his physical prowess, enduring brutal conditions and working hard where other slaves failed and died. While he keeps quiet and endures his situation, he will not be content to remain a slave forever…
- I wouldn’t mind playing opposite a female of some wealth and status. The daughter of my character’s owner? Someone from a wealthy family, a merchant or noble perhaps. She may be taken hostage and kidnapped during my character’s escape.
- Alternately, your character could be a fellow slave, someone displaying latent magical abilities and needing to flee, a caravan guard, or just about anything!
One of my favorite fantasy series! I've been reading and re-reading these books for years, and while some people might call them boring or derivative (the books do drag a bit in places), I still think it's one of the most enjoyable series and one of the best constructed fantasy universes I've known. I would likely prefer to set something up here using original characters in this setting, rather than anything directly tied to the novels. I have a few general plot ideas in mind, some from the much-ignored Wheel of Time Role Playing Game. Flexible on both your character and mine here. Sultry female Forsaken? Lovely Aes Sedai? Naive Novice/Accepted? Aiel Warrior Maiden? All awesome! Would be helpful, obviously, if you had some knowledge of the setting.
A pretty straight-forward request. Or is it?
I'd love to do something western-themed. Now, this could be an actual western, or a sci-fi western (ala Firefly), or a fantasy western (ala the Weird West). Haven't planned much out beyond that, but, I'll add more later!
Yet another in a long list of post-apocalyptic scenarios. Along the vein of Snowpiercer, The Colony and various other media, some disaster (global warming (thanks Al Gore), attempts to control the weather, or other influences) have caused the world to freeze over. Most of the planet is now an icy wasteland, and people must struggle to survive. There are rumored areas of the globe where it is still warm and green, but few have any hope that these rumors are true. The usual affairs of bandits, cannibals, and other mad groups will plague survivors as they journey around, scavenging from the bones of the old world, and just trying to get by. At least there's an excuse to keep each other warm at night!
This is an idea I had worked out with somebody a while ago, but never had a chance to do. I thought it seemed like an interesting setting, and I enjoyed the character, so I've always meant to get back to it. Here it is!
The land of Thelmeria was long ruled by dragons. The ancient and powerful beasts each controlled massive amounts of land, and lorded over all the humans that lived in their territory. They were often worshipped as gods, and just as often feared as tyrants. Not all dragons were evil, of course, but like any human ruler, some, if not many, were bound to be evil, cruel and greedy. Many dragons treated their human subjects as slaves, others as food, or soldiers for territory wars with other dragons. Only a few were kind to their subjects, but even those dragons were often regarded with as much fear as respect. While the dragons fought and argued amongst each other, however, the humans were plotting. In great secrecy, the lesser races were laying plans, forging alliances, building weapons, assembling armies. They were mastering the arts of magic, both arcane and divine, and through this, they made a discovery: They could create their own army of dragons.
A group of human sorcerers managed to steal a number of dragon eggs. Normally, they would never hatch without the presence and care of the dragon that spawned them, but, through sorcery, the mortal races were able to hatch them in to lesser dragons, called drakes. While smaller and weaker than their true draconic brethren, the mortal races were able to breed them in great numbers. Thus armed, they began a campaign of annihilation against the surprised dragons. One by one, the mighty beasts fell, and their territories were absorbed in to the newly-formed empire.
Many years later, few dragons remain, and those that do are hunted relentlessly. One such dragon is an ancient and terrible beast known as Karthus the Tyrant. So ancient is he, that he sleeps, often for decades, or even centuries at a time. With the aid of divination magic, the humans have located him at last, and are descending upon him. Powerful as he is, he is one of the last of his kind, and will be caught unaware... Will the dragons lineage end with him?
My Character Here:
Karthus is one of the few remaining dragons. He was once a Silver dragon, one of the kinder and more benevolent of the draconian races, but over countless millenia, thousands of battles, and numerous bloody encounters, his scales have been scarred, charred, worn and burnt black. Now this massive ebony beast is a legendary terror among the mortal races. Legends speak of the horrors he has wrought; entire villiages consumed, armies slaughtered, cities laid to waste... How true any of these rumors are is anyone's guess.
As a dragon, Karthus has a number of abilities and magical powers. He can, at will, assume the form of a human. While he is often loathe to do so, being a proud and arrogant beast, it may be more necessary for him in future, now that he is being hunted down. Very dominant and controlling, he is likely to be quite rough and demanding, immediately expecting most people he meets to adopt a subservient role and manner.
Variant 1 - A member of the Royal family, descendant of the great hero that led the uprising against the dragons. Tasked with hunting down the last of their kind, you set forth with an army at your back to slay one of the few remaining monsters.
Variant 2 - A veteran soldier or dragon hunter, leading or following others in to battle, or perhaps even working solo (probably not a good idea) to try and slay the ancient beast.
Variant 3 - Some sort of sympathizer, someone that doesn't want to see the dragons all exterminated. You may want to help the dragons escape, or even try to restore them to their former glory.
Variant 4 - Another dragon. There are very few left, and you may have come looking for safety, an alliance, or any number of things from the ancient and terrible Karthus.
Variant 5 - Anything you want! Bring on the ideas!
I'm dreaming of a distant cyberpunk future, along the vein of Syndicate, Blade Runner, Binary Domain, or Deus Ex. Robotics, cybernetics, nanomachines and more are prevalent in society. The gap between rich and poor has widened, first-world countries thriving and expanding, while third-world countries descend in to chaos, their governments collapsing. The wireless world is everywhere, and it's nearly impossible to find a place that doesn't have some sort of coverage (in civilized countries, at least), and with implants, people can browse the internet, shop, game, and communicate directly from their brains, Augmented Reality images overlaying everything (like Shadowrun, for those familiar). This is a world where corporations hold as much, or possibly more power than governments. There is crime, of course, the lower classes feeling oppressed and ignored by the ruling bodies, often turn to less-than-legal means to make a living. Plenty of room here for action, intrigue, drama and conspiracy!
Robots are common, including humanoid models, but machines which mimic actual human appearance are new, rare, secret, and often illegal. Recently, a few corporations have managed to develop a few androids, almost completely indistinguishable from humans, equipped with advanced AI, used for a variety of purposes ranging from corporate espionage to assassination, to more mundane tasks. How secret these machines actually are will vary based on the exact story, but, they will be rarities.
There are a few possible ways the story could go here:
My primary idea is that my character is one of these advanced androids, one of the first. He's not quite perfect, as he was an early attempt, and will have some flaws that later generations will not possess, though he is still one of the most advanced pieces of electronics in the world. For the purposes of this RP, he would be (in the words of Data), "Fully functional". His relationship with your character will depend on what exactly you would like to play.
Maybe you'd like to be a scientist or engineer that helped design, create, or maintain him? Perhaps you're a corporate executive or VIP that he serves as bodyguard or escort? Maybe you're just a waitress or regular person who stumbles across him, perhaps broken down after a failed mission. You could, perhaps, even be another android. Limitless possibilities here!
You know, everyone seems to think this is one of the worst movies ever made, and I just don't understand that. Sure it's not a good movie, but it's not that bad. I actually find it pretty enjoyable, and I've decided it could make a fun RP setting. It's like Fallout, with boats! Nautical adventures on a post apocalyptic wasteland await! Pirates! Raiders! Slavers! Other post-apocalypse tropes, but in boats!
This story, while not fully formed yet, would take place between a powerful demon/vampire/something supernatural, and somebody that has managed to capture and imprison it. Something akin to the Hellsing anime, where Alucard is bound to the service of the Hellsing family. The supernatural creature could be newly captured, or may have been imprisoned or in the service of the family for several generations. I'd be willing to play either the human, or the supernatural entity in this scene.
Many thousands of years ago, the heavens were at war. Only the gods themselves know what they were fighting about, but every mortal race has legends about the devastation that their conflict brought upon them. Storms, earthquakes, floods, volcanic eruptions, and other disasters were common while the gods fought to the bitter end. It was a miracle that the mortal races survived, but they persevered, and when the conflict finally came to an end, there was peace once more. The 'usurpers' in heaven had been destroyed, imprisoned, or exiled, and the remaining deities ruled over the mortal realms, drawing power from their worship. While they did grant power to their worshipers, and keep them safe from the evils of the world, there was something far more sinister at work, something which the mortals were not aware of.
In truth, the souls of those that died would not go to eternal peace and rest, but would instead be enslaved and consumed by the gods that they worship, sating their hunger, giving them more and more power. Of course, none of this was known to the mortal races, and they went about their lives in relative peace. The gods, however, were growing greedy. The energy from mortal worship was nothing compared to the energy gained from consuming their souls, so, they began to unleash monsters, plagues and disasters upon the world, killing many, and forcing the rest to worship even harder, begging for protection. This cycle continued for hundreds of years, with all mortals living in fear.
However, far from the cities, in a remote mountain village, a small tribe, isolated from the horrors of the world, worshiped a different idol. Their village was built around what appeared to be a statue, a stone form of a man, half trapped in the rocks of their mountain home. Knowing little of the outside world, the prayed to the idol for protection, for good weather, for bountiful crops and healthy children. It even seemed to work. In truth, this idol was a remnant of the great war, a god that was cast out and imprisoned in stone for all eternity, for crimes unknown. For thousands of years, he slept in the mountains, until one day, the remote village came under attack by dark creatures. The villagers prayed to the idol for salvation, and finally, the stone began to crack...
So. The idea here is that my character is a god, who has been cast out of heaven and imprisoned upon the earth for thousands of years. When he wakes up again, he's naturally pretty annoyed. As much as he'd like to set out for revenge, he is very weak from his long imprisonment, and in order to regain his strength, he's going to need worshipers!
I have a plot in mind here, involving the cause of the war, the sinister plots of the gods, and various other things. I'll keep some of it a secret, for the sake of surprise!
My character here - An imprisoned god, waking after thousands of years
Your character here - A priestess or shrine maiden, a warrior, villager, or just about anyone else!
I should note, I would love to see some very kinky worship here. Orgies, breeding and harems will be a big plus! What better way for a willing (or unwilling) woman to receive a blessing from her god than having it pumped in to her belly?
We were warned that the winter would be a long one, that the night would be dark and bring horrors beyond imagining with it. Few were prepared when the long night set in and the cold winds began to blow. Too many had been concerned with petty politics, with wealth and status, with crowns and thrones. Once the snow began to fall, such desires seemed petty… And once the dead began to rise, they became nothing but foolish memories. From far to the north, ancient specters of death marched forth, bringing with them hordes of shambling corpses. Cities vanished overnight, villages turning to ghost towns. People fled to the south, but everyone who had seen the coming horrors knew that there was no escape. The wind seemed to howl without end, driving snow hammering down, burying the land beneath. Even if one were to survive the dead, stores of food were already wearing thin.
Old enemies became desperate allies, armies marched against the encroaching dead, trying to stem the tide. Any delay they may have caused, however, was overwhelmed by the fact that the dead soldiers only added to the enemy numbers. To the south, some still refused to believe what was coming, instead taking advantage of the chaos to secure positions of power, to amass gold or claim land, but it would all be for naught when the icy fingers of the walking dead were scratching at their doors. Society falls to chaos as danger creeps closer, the strong take advantage, taking what they please. Bands of survivors form raiding groups of bandits, and as food supplies begin to fall short, they may grow more dangerous than the encroaching dead.Overview
- Inspired, obviously, by ASOIAF, but does not have to take place in this world specifically.
- Snowpiercer, without trains. Just the snow, really. Endless snow, and zombies.
- Probably more like The Walking Dead, with swords, and a lot of snow.
- Strong survival horror elements, as well as human politics and corruption in the face of disaster.
- Magic can be present, but not overpowering.
- A desperate adventure, to escape the coming horrors, or to stop them?
Inspirational Images (Some NSFW)Armies gather in the North… But will it be enough?The land is cold and dark, bleak and empty.The endless dead continue their inevitable march.Even if their walls can keep the dead away, what will they do when the food runs out?How long before society collapses, and the strong take advantage?
- A warrior from the north, veteran of a catastrophic battle against the undead. Knows what is coming, and that there will be no stopping it. A man with questionable morals and the strength to survive, adapting to the new situation. Will not hesitate to take what he pleases.
- Would adore playing opposite a pretty, perhaps naive or even stuck up female noble who needs to learn a lesson about how harsh the world is about to become.
- A queen and a princess together might just hit every kink I've ever had. Just sayin'.
In the vein of all of the other post-apocalyptic scenarios I've been posting, I thought I'd post up something sci-fi. This could be an existing setting if you have any favorites, or just a generic mash-up. Regardless, this is a universe where things have gone terribly wrong. Empires crumbled, communications are limited, numerous planets and their inhabitants have been infected and consumed by an encroaching threat that seeks to devour all civilization. Survivors of the broken empires that once spanned galaxies now hole up on the remaining worlds waiting for the inevitable, or travel between infected planets, scavenging for artifacts of the old world to sell or to keep flying.
Inspiration here is drawn somewhat from Dead Space, where the threat could be an ancient artifact that was unearthed, and has begun "evolving" organic matter in to vicious space zombie monsters, driving people insane, or brainwashing them to create more artifacts and spread them around, leading to a decayed universe full of horrors. The brave few that are willing to raid infected planets for relics of the old world can make a tidy profit, but is there any point when planets are being swallowed up one by one, and those that remain are falling to chaos and insanity?
Plenty of opportunity for just about anything here! Would be pretty open ended, but would love to play a Firefly-esque Starship Captain flying around and doing what it takes to survive, maybe picking up a few human or alien beauties along the way.
So, I recently finished a weird little Russian game called Cradle. Despite problems associated with low budget games, it was completely enthralling, and I was totally hooked from the moment I started it right up until the moment of the extremely abrupt, confusing, and thoroughly unsatisfying ending. So, with my imagination sparked and desire for more of this setting unsatisfied, I've started thinking about doing something similar. The basic premise is this: Decades ago, a deadly virus was spreading through population centers unchecked, and was decimating the population of the planet. Doctors and scientists worked tirelessly to no avail, and were unable to even slow the virus. So, they turned to advanced robotics and computing for a solution: The ability to transfer a human consciousness in to an artificial body, where, in theory, the remainder of the human race would simply wait out the virus before returning to their old, cryogenically-stored bodies. People flooded to this solution, and before long, much of the human race had transferred over to human bodies. But was the plan successful?
Much later, a lone individual who grew up in a remote area among a secluded family or tribe, has little knowledge of any of this. It would have all occurred long ago, and with little contact with the outside world to begin with, he or she would have little idea of the goings-on outside. Family/tribal warnings would have cautioned against leaving the remote, sheltered area, and there was little reason to do so anyway. This lone individual would eventually stumble upon a treasure from outside; An AI core, a human consciousness stored in an advanced piece of cybernetics, just waiting to be plugged in to a (no doubt old and broken) body. What secrets does this person hold? How did it come to be so far removed from civilization? What adventures will this spark? Ideas abound!
I'm willing to play either role in this scenario.
This could work in a number of different settings. Mass Effect, Star Wars, whatever really. Personally, I prefer sort of a generic, made up universe. That way we can just make things up without being restricted by technologies, aliens, etc. Keep in mind, this is only a very rough starting point for a scene. Lots of room here for plot development, exploration, action, evil aliens, and kinky fun!
A former military Captain has been dishonorably discharged for refusing to follow orders. What those orders were, exactly, is a classified subject, and not one the Captain himself is keen to think about. For several years after his misadventure, he took what work he could; fighting, stealing, smuggling, and whatever other dirty jobs needed to be taken care of. He scraped and scrounged and saved every credit he could, and finally, managed to afford his own ship. With a ship came freedom, and finally, he was able to set out to the stars again. Space travel was his true passion, and the main reason he had joined the military in the first place. Now, however, he was free to go where he willed, take what jobs he wanted, and do whatever he pleased. Of course, there are still bills to pay, so he takes what jobs he can get, as he had before, building a bit of a reputation for himself.
Working solo has it's pros and cons. You do get to keep all of your pay, but, sometimes things get a bit hairy with nobody to watch your back. It was one of those situations that the Captain found himself in now. He had arrived a Paradise Station, a massive casino and luxury resort orbiting Saturn. There were two sides to the station; the gleaming, flashy public side, where tourists, gamblers and businessmen made their homes, and then there was the rougher area - The slums of Paradise. Thousands of people worked on Paradise station, and most of them lived there. Few of them had money, so the city itself was rather run down and decrepit. What few people knew was that the entire station, city and casino, were operated by an organized crime syndicate. As such, it had become a perfect place for all manner of shady dealings. One of those shady deals was going on right then.
The Captain knew that something was wrong as soon as he entered the bar. There were a lot of patrons, but little noise. Those patrons were almost all men, too casually dressed, as if intentionally trying to blend in. They were seated all around the room, in positions that would give them the best view of the room. His current employer was seated in the middle of the room, and he wore a false smile, beckoning the Captain over. He had come to exchange some data discs that he had been hired to procure, and collect his payments. It seemed, however, that his employer didn't want him walking away from this deal alive...
As described, a (probably) human male, now in possession of his own ship. He roams the galaxy, trying to make a living where he can, but, some days, you just need a little help. That's where you come in.
Just about anything! Waitress that gets dragged in to a gunfight and has to flee with him? Tough mercenary for hire? Secret agent looking for a discreet way to travel? The possibilities are limitless! As you may notice in my Ons/Offs pages, sexy aliens are appreciated!
This idea could work in a couple of different settings. I'm really in the mood for something horror themed after the games I've been playing and movies I've been watching lately. So here are some variants!
Variant 1 - Similar in theme to Aliens, Dead Space, or Pandorum. A massive colony ship has been drifting for years, heading towards a new planet, away from earth, which could no longer sustain the human population. The trip will take centuries, and as such, the colonists (all civilians) are in stasis for many long years. The crew wakes in shifts to manage and monitor the ship. But something has gone wrong. The ship has come under attack, and systems are failing. Off course, lost, damaged, and with no help for miles, the enormous vessel is drifting aimlessly. With power and life support slowly failing, the stasis pods are slowly shutting down, trapping and killing their occupants. A lucky few, however, wake in time and manage to escape. Now, lost and alone in this massive vessel, with no sign of the crew and no idea what might be lurking in the dark corridors, they must fight to survive.
Characters here could be civilians or crew. Civilians would of course have a much harder time, having no idea what the layout of the ship is, or how any of the systems work. Will they try and save the others? Restore life support? Get the engines running and find out where they are? Can they even manage that? Maybe they'll just try and escape on their own! Lots of possibilities here.
Variant 2 - A cruise ship/island/both! Isolated far out in the ocean, a luxurious ocean liner has encountered a problem... What the problem is, is up for debate. A serial killer? Crazed cult? Monster of some sort? Vampires? Werewolves? ZOMBIES?! Personally, I'm a fan of the zombie idea, but, that's probably because I just finished watching The Walking Dead. It's open for discussion! Characters would be passengers on the ocean liner, stranded and with no way to communicate with the outside world, they'll have to stick together, and come up with a plan if they want to survive.
Variant 3 - A strange little isolated town in the mountains, surrounded by forest. They rarely get visitors, and these guests in particular have chosen a very inopportune time to arrive. They have come to town just in time for a local festival. Normally, this would be a great time to visit a quaint little village, but the town harbors a dark secret. Strange rituals are conducted in the dead of night, people disappear, and strange screams and cries echo from the mountains. Will the strangers be able to escape with their lives, or will they be sacrificed by the bizarre cult?
All ideas here are open for change, interpretation, and whatever! So let me know if you'd like to add, remove or change anything.
This idea would be something X-Files ish, inspired by spending a few hours reading through the SCP archives. Essentially, a giant secret organization is tasked with collecting, studying, containing, and if absolutely necessary destroying, all of the strange and paranormal things in the world. This includes mysterious artifacts, haunted houses, unknown creatures, and people with mysterious powers. As with any large, secretive organization, there are many who question their motives and modes of operation. Are they as benign as they claim, or are they harboring some evil intent? Do they intend to save the world, or rule it from the shadows? Even ignoring all of this, day-to-day life is dangerous and exciting in the organization, with much adventure to be had.
My Character - I was thinking for this RP I would play some sort of doctor, scientist or agent working for the organization. He would be tasked with find, retrieving, exploring, studying etc various paranormal items.
Your Character - As always, feel free to use your own ideas. I was, however, thinking that you might play a female human with some sort of mysterious power, who has been brought in for study. While life for human subjects is not uncomfortable, and they are provided with everything they might need, their lives are restricted and they are essentially imprisoned, only allowed to leave under heavy restrictions, and with an escort depending on the magnitude of their abilities.
The RP - My character might begin studying or perhaps guarding yours. Over time, he begins to recognize the use of her abilities and perhaps develop some sympathy towards her situation. He obtains permission to have her accompany him on expeditions, and they essentially become partners, going on to have a variety of adventures tracking down the mysteries of the world.
Pirates! I've had a craving for a pirate-themed game these days, which could go a couple of ways.
Variant One: Traditional Pirates - An historical game, set in something close to the real world. Danger and adventure on the high seas!
Variant Two: Fantasy Pirates - Something a little more exciting. Undead pirates! Krakens! Mystical treasure and dangerous sea-beasts! Tons of options and plenty of fun to be had here.
I've had some various ideas that take place a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.
Rebellion Era: My character here would be former Imperial Agent, either human or Chiss. He would be well verse in spying, sabotage, assassination and intrigue. During his time working for the empire, he was involved in the tracking and execution of numerous rogue Jedi before an incident caused him to lose faith in the Empire. Using his skills, he defected and vanished, and has operated in a mercenary capacity since then, buying and selling information, as well as his talents. During his travels, he might come upon one of the last remaining Jedi or apprentices, in need of help, and see this as a chance for redemption... Or a chance to turn her in for a reward.
Any Era: A Jedi and a Sith locked in battle are eventually downed on a hostile alien planet, with no way to communicate. Will they continue their battle to the death? Struggle to escape and leave the other behind? Or perhaps reluctantly work togther?
Open to tons of other ideas and characters, these are just off the top of my head.
So, in keeping with... Well, a lot of other ads on this site, I'm interested in a Vampire RP. It could be one of a few different settings or pairings.
Variant 1 - World of Darkness
For those unfamiliar with the series of RPGs created by White Wolf, this is a modern setting where vampires, shapeshifters, mages and all manner of other creatures live in secret among society. Some of these creatures see the benefit of remaining hidden, allowing them to feed on, manipulate and otherwise control the human population from the shadows. Other factions believe that they would be better off making themselves public, and conquering the entire human species, ruling over them and using them as they please. Humanity, however, is not entirely defenseless, as they have a number of government agencies, and humans with strange and unnatural powers that allow them to hunt these creatures from the shadows.
My Character here: I'd be looking to play a Hunter, likely. A human that has come in to powers beyond his understanding. Suddenly introduced to a world full of horror, they face unspeakable horrors that they cannot comprehend. Their safe and secure little world shattered, they certainly have some issues to work out. Do they try and carry on with their lives, pretending it's all a dream? Do they take these new powers that they don't understand at all and try to hunt down the monsters? My character will be torn between the two, trying to cope with this new world.
Your Character: I am really in the mood for a sexy female vampire. It seems that most other scenes I do, I'm playing the aggressive and dominant party. While I do certainly enjoy being the dominant one, it would be nice to see an aggressive woman for a change! However, it's entirely up to you. Vampire, other supernatural creature, another Hunter, or just an everyday human! Lots of ways we can go here.
Variant 2 - Anita Blake/True Blood-ish world
Here, Vampires are out in the open, and a mostly accepted part of society. They probably only 'came in to the light' a few years ago, and society is still trying to figure out how to cope with them. For the sake of fitting in, most of these vampires are trying to live normal, non-threatening lives. A lot of them were even turned recently, the reveal of vampires giving many people a chance at real immortality. Who could resist?
My Character: Again, I'd like to play some sort of vampire hunter. In this case, it's more of a Vampire Executioner, really. Some Vampires don't want to conform to the rules of society, longing for the days where they were monsters, terrors of the night. They want to be able to use their powers, lord over the humans, hunt kill and feed as they choose. The government employs a number of highly-trained, and very skilled executioners to deal with these cases.
Your Character: Again again, I'd really like to play opposite a sexy female vampire. She could be one of the 'bad girls' that he's out to hunt, a newly turned vampire trying to make a 'living' that gets tangled up in his work, or maybe an elder vampire that's interested in him and his work, or looking to use him to wipe out rivals.
Variant 3 - Something historical, either fantasy or Victorian. In an interesting twist borrowed from the pages of the White Wolf books, we could even do something set in ancient Rome. According to the White Wolf setting, the Vampires had a massive empire in those times, and it could be interesting to explore.
My Character: For this scene, I suppose I could play a human or a vampire. His exact role would depend on the setting we chose.
Your Character: Once more, I'd love a female vampire! But, I'd take humans for this one too.
After just seeing Fury Road, I was inspired to go and play a ton of Fallout, and then come here to try and find some similarly-themed RP. Particularly, the idea of a wandering wasteland survivor taking in a harem of lovely, unspoiled breeding stock was delicious. So! No specific ideas, but, a couple of options:
- Wastelander kidnaps a bunch of wives/breeding stock from a warlord. They have no concept of the outside world, and are unwilling to leave or cooperate at first.
- Wives/Breeding stock are actively trying to escape, and happen upon a wastelander who will take them to safety... For a price
- Other stuff involving sexy wasteland chicks?
To spice things up, we could incorporate some Fallout angles with more mutants and beasties in the wasteland. Will develop this more over time!
Extra points will be awarded to contestants who satisfy the bonus round conditions!
Currently craving a just about anything under the "Currently Looking" section, or possibly a western of some manner.
Of course, anyone willing to play multiple characters (not necessarily at once) will be loved forever.
I also enjoy hearing other ideas, so if you've got something you're itching for, try pitching it to me, and we'll see if we can work something out.
So there we are. Well done if you stuck with it this far, and thanks for looking! Feel free to drop me a message if you'd like to chat or discuss an idea, but please keep this thread clear. Look forward to hearing from you!
