I'm very new to E and I'm really looking forward to meeting people, writing and building up a repertoire of genres and themes.
I'm particularly looking for a female character
to go with my male character. I
No doubt this list will grow and get refined as time goes on, so please scroll through to the latest post. I will try to be transparent with edits.Settings
Below is a list of settings that I would like to write within. Plots are collaborative, I just have a fascination with the environments they present.
- Wuxia: I love the fantasy kung-fu worlds of movies like Hero, Crouching Tiger and House of Flying Daggers. I also like pan-Asian attempts like the Bioware RPG Jade Empire.
- Modern Japan: A few years ago I tried to run a LiveJournal RPG set in Japan's mizu shobai (water trade, a euphemism for the often sexual service industry). Hostess bars, yakuza, soaplands, there is a lot to work with. This could appeal to fans of Japanese gangster cinema or the Yakuza (Ryu ga Odoku) games.
- Historical Japan: Who doesn't love samurai, ninja, ronin and the tales of feudal Japan--maybe with a touch of fantasy for added fun. I have a bit of a thing for wartime Japan too but in a more realistic manner.
- Cyberpunk Japan: Anyone who's read William Gibson's Neuromancer or seen Blade Runner or Akira will know what I'm talking about. I particularly love Ghost in the Shell (in all its incarnations) and would love to match up this setting to a police/detective style plot.
- 50s U.S. Urban Noir: Hats, trenchcoats, cigarettes and moody narrative. Yes please!
- Military: Special forces, war, boot camp. There's a lot to work with.
- Spies: I can go either realistic or license to kill with this. Double-crossing, dead drops, wet work and globe trotting. I have a particular love of the Mission: Impossible setting.
- Sci-Fi: Particularly with regards to space travel in the vein of Star Trek, Star Wars, Firefly, Ringworld, etc.
I have more, but these are what come to mind. I will probably flesh this post out with some plot ideas later, but I just wanted to leave my door open. PM if you are interested in pursuing any of these ideas.
