Now, I have a pretty big concept, which I'd like to flesh out and start with a group of fellow rpers.
The basic idea is to set up a world, led by several factions, which are at constant odds and war, and which will end up having complicated alliances, and occasionally might be forced to work together because of a common enemy.
The result should be complicated plots orchestrated by several 'leaders' but with sub-plots with others trying to advance in their ranks and even take the leaders place. The death of a character is something that can happen, but only if reasonable within the rp. One can't just randomly decide to kill the enemy leader.
I am not sure yet how to set this all up, as well as I am unsure on which platform. Because of certain disadvantages I am currently deciding on whether to use Elliquiy as the medium or not, but I'm mainly looking here for ideas and opinions.
initially it'll be limited to 4 factions, but as there will be more players and characters, more factions might be created to make up for the amount.
I'll also be needing an advanced ruleset and guidelines for common problems, for instance if a 'leader' suddenly becomes inactive, or how to react to trolls, as well as requirements in terms of quality.
The intended setting is Fantasy, but with elements of Sci-fi and even just plain realism. The world will be expansive and needs some degree of lore.
I hope you all will help me with this, and I look forward to setting this up with the people interested.
