A Wanderer's Romance
« on: October 09, 2014, 05:48:46 AM »

The world began as nothing but ocean. The Origins raised up a million colourful islands, anything larger than a few dozen miles being swallowed by the envious deep. Some of these immaterial beings chose to take a physical form and live in the varied lands they had created, eventually settling into the forms of men and beasts. Our ancestors.

The Origins that did not take physical form paid a great cost. They were left unable to affect their world directly, relying upon influencing men with words and knowledge. Their teachings led to our understanding of elemental balance, the formation of the thousand Legendary Styles and the universal code of combat that define our world today.

You are a great man or woman. An errant trained in both the noble art of combat and in contests of body and mind. Drifting from one island to another, you have your own philosophy on life and the power to enforce it.


A Wanderer’s Romance is a game of martial art duels and tea-making contests set in a world of unnatural islands on an endless sea. It draws on its Wuxia influences but focuses on a character driven game with scope for incredible environments and a true sense of exploration.

I have several plot seeds thanks to TheHangedMan and the Shout Box in general. This story can go in almost any direction.

 Maybe all the characters share a common point - being orphans, for instance, who were taken in by a kindly old man/woman. Said old man/woman could have taken each to different places, different schools... and now they're all being called upon to visit their benefactor on their death bed?

Maybe  they are all on a  quest to find the perfect cup of tea for spiritual enlightenment?

Maybe all their paths crossed by chance?

I am open to suggestions.

I would love to get in on this as well. I'll submit some kind of idea for a character in the next few days.

You are both spear users? Perhaps students of Rivaling schools?
