Period piece - looking for M
« on: April 09, 2016, 07:11:05 AM »

I am hoping to combine several ideas into a new one with this game.

Basically the core story would be this:

In the late 18th century, a wealthy American man wants to find a suitable husband for a child he has with his second partner.
Said partner is a woman he never married because she is black.
The child borne out of this romance is a little girl, who is raised in wealth and privilege and who is thus kept away from the bigotry and resentment a bi-racial child might otherwise have to endure.

However, the father knows he needs to make long-term arrangements for his child's happiness. At the age of 21, she is already getting to the point where most of her peers would have been wed.
Unfortunately, in spite of her father's wealth, there is no great supply of suitors for a half-black child born out of wed-lock.

Thus her father finds a potential husband for her in a man who used to clerk for him. A mild-mannered gentleman of modest upbringing whose studies helped him to climb up a tiny bit on the social ladder.
He is perceived as kind and open-minded enough to consider marrying the daughter.

To further sweeten the deal, the father promises the couple the ownership of Silver Cliffs island, a lucrative piece of land that lays a few dozen miles east of the New England coast line.

Basically I am looking for someone to play the prospective husband. I have no other details about him, apart from what has already been stated above. I see him as being in his 30s, but this can be discussed.
