But then how do we decide what the spy finds? A discussion and decision based on what would make the RP more interesting, or do the NPCs know everything?

That works too. I would recommend just finding a Medieval name generator. XD

I tend to be more based on what makes the RP more interesting. Since it'll be OOC we can discuss what we think will be the right time to catch certain individuals with their hands in the cookie jar.

I resorted to that after I ran out of names.

I think this seems most appropriate to be placed in Human small group system?

Yeah, I think that's the better option as well.  The Human small groups sounds appropriate to me.

Anyway, I am done editing Jacquelyn.  I feel she is more deserving of her title as the impish princess.

This has merit.

We could just use unbiased common sense or add events to the tournament in order for the heroes to gain certain NPC's favor.   I think the princesses should also be able to effect how much support a hero gets from the other 4 authorities.  For instance, if a princess is loved by the people and favors a certain hero than she should be able to sway that NPC into supporting that hero as well.

Just an idea.
I had intended on my character certainly trying to sway an NPC at least, though the one that represents the people isn't likely to be the one.

So we are temporarily allowing new interested parties as a few of our initial interest have parted ways. The RP is still very fresh there have only been two matches in the tournament and such. Any questions feel free to post them.

Maybe you should put up on the first page the kind of heroes that would be fun to have in the game right now! I like the idea of a hero with evil intentions.

Rather than a hero who entered to get the crown through just means, he's entered the tournament to try and infiltrate the kingdom and castle to, say, assassinate the emperor and start some new monarchy before the tournament reaches a conclusion.

It would still be there, but leaving the game open to more possibilities would also be fun. 
If a princess gets kidnapped, it could be kept a secret from certain characters while others are scrambling to find her before the whole city is thrown in to chaos.

There's also no guarantee that the men with these intentions are actually able to pull off their schemes :) I personally think it would just be nice to have different kinds of heroes, both the just, the scoundrels AND the demented :)

Come to think of it, it would actually be a really good idea assuming the entire story isn't thrown off balance because of it. I suggest you start attracting some kidnappers then!
