Ok so that's my app. I think I may have bent history a little... If the family names and lines don't work, I'll change them. Just let me know.

While I understand the desire to pair up, I feel pair ups kill potential plot lines. But that is my own opinion. If it makes sense IC, then it works.

I plan of having my character born in Rome, but had not seen it since he went off to...wherever he ended up going. (TBD)

I tend to agree. I think if a pairing happens organically within the story, that's great. But the pre-cooked pairings can make things a little stale for me, personally.

While I agree with this in most cases, in this game, a female character who isn't paired up seems like she would be pretty much on the outside of everything.

Another good point. It's why I elected to have a (presently) NPC brother.

Characters could still pair up and then introduce one another to each other. Pairings also don't have to mean that partners couldn't cheat on each other, which could cause a whole series of sub plots with intrigues and betrayal. :-)

Everyone's got great points.

I'm going to keep my character as a singular while playing her brother as an NPC to start with, then see where I want her to go.
That's me personally. But I respect everyone else and their decisions. Either way, can't wait to get some scenes started. Should be fun.

Well if her father is supposed to be the same Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa who aided Octavian/Augustus he would be dead over a century before this game begins, so you may want to tweak slightly in that regard. Otherwise the character looks fine.

If you still want to take up a wife I've got a wanted up for my characters wife.

I'll get a character thread up soon. Any of you have a preference on what board we place this in?

I think N/C will be fine, not to say we may not get into extreme range, but I rarely find games that get to that point (and the area is just flooded for no reason)

I wanted her father to be from that line, but not the same one. I can tweak it though. No problem.

I was leaning that way myself.

If its a different chap with the same name that's perfectly fine. I just wanted to clarify!

I think I will be using a famous family name but "flubbing" the history for the sake of this game

This looks pretty neat. Quick question Primarch, were all of the Senate members killed during the sack of Rome, or just the ones in Rome at the time? IE, would I be able to create a character who was part of the Roman Senate and happened to not be in Rome at the time of the attack.

My current character idea is either an extremely rich Roman senator (using the Marcus Crassus character) who was gone from Rome at the time and, now that his predecessors are dead seeks to take control of the Senate. Or maybe his son if we establish that previous Council members were killed.

As great as this concept is, I think I am going to bow out.  My primary hook for this game was claimed by someone else and did not make sense to have to returning conquering generals, and the other concept I could get behind really only works if my character is paired with someone, and does not look like it will happen.

Blackstone, if you feel  the hook as conquering general was claimed by me, please feel free to throw your hat back into the ring, as I am going to bow out from this concept as to not get too far out of my depth too soon on E.  Have fun everybody!

No its okay and I did not mean the comment as a passive aggressive slam but as an explanation.  I have a lot on my plate too here and really should focus on the turkey piled high on it instead of going.  "Ooooh more stuffing please!"

Hello all, marking my interest down for this RP!

Is the position of Governor of Syria (later Syria-Palaestina) still available? On the front line with the Parthians and is only concerned with holding them off in the centuries long mortal struggle with the foes across the Tigris. Or is it Senatorial Provinces only, in which case I can settle for Asia (western Anatolia) or Bithynia and Pontus region.

Certainly!

Just going to point out that being a 'Conquering General' was pretty much the thing to do, I rather expect most of the male characters to be some form of Conquering General. But if you wish to bow out that is of course your own decision.

This looks pretty neat. Quick question Primarch, were all of the Senate members killed during the sack of Rome, or just the ones in Rome at the time? IE, would I be able to create a character who was part of the Roman Senate and happened to not be in Rome at the time of the attack.

As it stands I'm running with the idea that the traditional leadership was wiped out in the attack, so between the two ideas I believe the son would be preferable.

Awesome. Governor of Syria it is for me. He will be an ex-consul who had a brother who was killed in the attack on Rome. But forget the Goths, the Parthians are more dangerous!

I'd like to point out that my character will not be a conquering general. More of a defensive one. Looking to earn that Parthicus/Armeniacus epitah by the end of the RP.

What sort of settings will there be to play in?
Is it just a free-for-all of anywhere within Rome, or would there be some specific places with scenes open for all?

There will be a thread dedicated to pushing the main plot, open to all. First will probably take place in the ruins of the Senate building.
Then a thread (or threads) for the general posting, getting that smaller scale interaction going on and the like.
