Well, I should have plenty of time for research before December falls down on us. Sadly, the only decent bookstore in my town closed a few years ago, so now we have three of them that only sell footballer and reality tv celebrity biographies and bad romance paperbacks. I'll have to make a trip to track them down.

I got mine from Amazon.

The wikipedia page on the Kushiel series has probably enough to give you a bit of a primer.

Ditto-ing on the Wiki.

But those of the House of Shahrizai are fantastic in the art of manipulation and seduction. Mm...Torture doesn't especially fall from them...my head's a bit fuzzy right now, but isn't there another House that's even a more direct descendant of Kushiel?

Mandrake is the house of Dominance and Sadism

Valerian is the house of Algolagnia and Submision -> Phedre's

Shahrizai are a minor nobel house, goth in appearance and yes very good at manipulation and seduction.  Imriel's cousin Roshana almost seduces him up at the lake the summer they stay at Montreve

I very much want to do this!  I loved the books XD 

I honestly cannot decide between playing a more dominate female in the house Mandrake.. or a submissive boy in the house valerian. hah!

Best of both worlds.  Never really done a dominant boy before.  Could be quite the mental exercise hehe!

*thinks it over.*

Course playing a char for both houses would be quite nice too.  :D

Ok...If you guys haven't read Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel series and you're fond of bondage or are a secret (or not so secret - coughs - ) sadist/masochist...where on EARTH have you been?!

Under a rock, of course.   :P

(Good luck with the game)

I haven't a clue what you're talking about.  I've never heard of the game/subject/topic.   Like I said, under a rock.  :P

*tosses Hunter a copy of Kushiels Dart under the rock*

Seriously, very good series. Pick up the first, and I doubt you'll regret it.

Definately interested, but a tad conflicted. Not sure if I have the time to do this rp justice -and- on the fence on what I'd like to play in this setting. Perhaps an adept of the House Heliotrope or Jasmine, or a sadistic patron noble from one of the conflicted families.

Choices choices  :(

Imo-

Yay!

...I hope I still remember the plot. x_X

Anyway, expect to see the thread up in early December in this forum. I'll have a list of the characters that we need and you all can start filling out your profiles.

I am way interested. Only I haven't finished the series. *is reading the first one right now*

I don't want spoilers, so maybe it would be better if I didn't for now? Or can it be done in that world without spoilers? XD

Our time period would be a good century or more before the books take place, so spoilers shouldn't be an issue.

Yay Stori! - pounces -

And yeah, what Hairy said. - grins - Save for the culture, there shouldn't be anything that would be in the books. We're trying to stay away from canon characters as much as possible.
