So this is also an idea in progress. By intermediate length I mean a few weeks, or months. Long enough to complete the story arc. I am looking for a roleplaying partner to play a villain, sidekick, or love interest of a British MI6 agent in a roleplay inspired by the James Bond films. The roleplay will be contemporary or historical, set during the early sixties, when Dr. No.
and From Russia with Love
are set. I will play a double-0 agent based on Sean Connery and Daniel Craig’s portrayal of Bond. As with the Realms roleplay, I am looking for a knowledgeable partner who can help me advance the plot. Additionally, I would prefer a confident and capable heroine like Jinx or Wai Linn, or a wicked villain like Xenia Onatopp or Elektra, although I am open to other possibilities.
As with the films the roleplay will likely contain double entendre, puns, chases, action scenes, and cool gadgets. Plot Information: Potential SpoilersIntro:
The story begins with the protagonist, agent 00-, visiting the grave of his deceased wife, in much the way Roger Moore’s Bond visits the grave of his wife in For Your Eyes Only
. After receiving a message from a bogus M he steps into his Aston Martin and is accosted by the other character, the ideas I am working with is an impromptu car-chase/race or a car-chase/shootout, f the other player is a villain or a character of uncertain allegiance. At some point the first scene will end in a shootout, knife fight, intimate scene, explosion, or maybe some combination of the four. Or perhaps the first scene will defy the genre and end in a way that's entirely new way.
I have two ideas for the main plot. Neither of these are complete plot summaries and both are works in progress.Castle Echo
: The first involves the theft of Castle Echo a nuclear Warhead, with a yield in excess of 100 Megatons, from a nuclear weapons disassembly facility in Texas (contemporary) or a Strategic Air Command Base in Nebraska (historical). The U.S. State Department and DOD are unwilling to acknowledge the existence Castle Echo but MI6 discovers that an American SAC IFF transponder will be auctioned at an upcoming Arms Bazaar.All the Time in the World
: I know, the title is a total ripoff from In Her Majesty's Secret Service
but the idea is solid. The second possible plot involves an investigation into a German (contemporary) or East German (historical) pharmaceutical magnate connected to the death of a 00-agent who was investigating the defection of several a high-level virologists to his company. Days after initiating the investigation, several Anthrax cultures are stolen from a Soviet, or Russian, Chemical Weapons Lab by the Pharmaceutical magnate’s henchmen.
If neither of these plots strike your fancy but you would still like to do a roleplay based on the genre feel free to PM me with other short, intermediate, or longterm ideas.
