For a long time now, I've had an immense desire to do an RP centered on a group of adventurers traveling through the great outdoors on the way to some place or goal. Actually...that's misleading. I *always* want to do stuff like this. I love adventure. I love traveling through the wilderness on the way to exotic locales. Given the types of characters I play, High Fantasy would be ideal for this...both for the magic involved and for what the characters can see and do.
At the same time, I've yet to be immersed in a deep polyamorous relationship between such a group. I feel such a thing could be beautiful...perhaps even unforgettably so. Races, preferences, and species? Pretty much take anything (attractive) out of your generic fantasy stew or go supernatural with Nymphs, Succubi, Erinyes, Celestial or Fiendish humans, Catfolk, etc., Yuri, relationships between women and hermaphrodites/intersexed individuals, shapechangers, and variants of such deeply appeal to me.
You can see my ons and offs and/or my intro thread (both linked in me siggy) for what I like and what makes me shudder...but at the same time, everyone's different, and while I may have my preferences, others have their own. So long as it doesn't go too far into the danger zone, other people should be able to enjoy themselves in this as well! It is a group thing, after all.
Now for specific ideas:
New to the Profession
Adventurers aren't born extremely skilled. Everyone starts off green at some point, right? What about a group of people meeting for the first time and embarking on their first real adventure together? Good times and fond memories, right? Everything's new and fresh. And your attractive partners? Well...gods willing, this'll be unforgettable!
Let the Adventure Come to Us
After traveling together for some time and many successes in the field, this group of adventurers wanders on to the next hotspot...and the road is long enough for them to have the time to truly look at one another, reveal hidden feelings, and show love for those that have been with them through thick and thin.
An Amazing Discovery
Here it is! The fabled floating continent or hidden remnants of a civilization long lost. Though nature has asserted her will over these ruins, hints of their former prominence are all over. The group searches for answers, magics, power...and while their intents may differ they will all need each other to traverse these ancient, crumbling remains and survive against whatever guardians remain.
Through some freak occurrence several adventurers are pulled from all corners of the world and/or planes to one spot: A timeless desert bathed in eternal moonlight. Time moves slow here. Food is less than scarce and there is tremendous danger in the unknown. Though strangers, this group will have no choice but to rely on each other to navigate their way to civilization.
Wide open, right? There are few certainties in all of this...but I can state some strong preferences.
Wilderness. I'm not one for typical, dirty, crowded cities. I've lived in one all my life. Let us travel through forests, small hamlets, moonlit deserts with white sands, and ancient ruins overtaken by nature.
I don't have to run this as I'm happier being a simple player, but I would not object if asked to do so...in such case, I'm always happy to receive ideas and helping hands. I'm looking for four to six people and preferably a mix of female and intersexed characters for the cast. I don't care what the gender of the authors are...so long as the writing is good and believable.
Alignments and Motivations. Can be anywhere on the spectrum. All I ask...all we'll need is enough love or caring between the characters so that they would never betray each other. This is about a cast that needs and grows to love (or lust for) each other. Check the treachery at the door. Sure, the succubus is evil and finds souls to be delicious...but what if she's really fond of her partners? Can't break one's toys if they wanna keep playing with them right?
Another is believability. If a character is of a species that would be hunted or feared, don't expect people to react to them as if they are ordinary. A werewolf in bestial form can't just walk into a bar and not expect people to panic and flee...brave adventurers to question it or attempt to destroy it.
Now if these sorts of ideas are already in play elsewhere (and I simply haven't found them yet. I'm new!), please point the way! If they aren't and any of these are interesting to you, let me know! Hope to hear from ya'll!
