The New Old South [lit. M lf lit. F]
« on: November 21, 2019, 11:08:35 AM »

Dear lady/-ies,

I am in the market for a gritty roleplay based in the Old South or the 19th Century Frontier. You will find out more below. The post is compartmentalised for ease of reading. Should something not be clear, feel free to contact me.

I. What am I looking for?
I wish to explore a setting rife with smouldering conflict, residual racism, societal scandals, Louisiana lanterns, bayou folklore, moonshine, (pistol)whipping, antebellum architecture and colonial houses, and southern belles and southern drawls. Murder, mystery and violence should feature in this gritty world we both would create. Everything I wrote here is just to get us started. Please send me a personal message for further discussion. If you need some popular references: Hell on Wheels, Klondike, any western really, Red Dead 2 (of which I borrow heavily), Hatfield vs. McCoy, Django Unchained,... A not so clean example could be Westworld. I am not an American myself, so there can be things I miss or do not know about. Feel free to educate me. Alternatively, we can simply have our story take place in a made-up Western world. For instance, the setting pitch is for a fictional place I shamelessly based off of Red Dead 2. It's a start.

A raucous, rough-and-tumble town in the State of Lemoyne, Plesance’s livestock auctions and plantation fairs attract traders, ranchers, cowboys, gamblers, outlaws, and prostitutes from far and wide, all looking to make some money, raise some hell, and have a good time. Others pass through on their way from the city of St. Denis, the state capital, to the western frontier. Whilst prim and proper on the surface, tension and corruption run deep in the Southern town of Plesance, which for years has been caught in the crossfire between the Lelierres of Belle Manor and the McBrandels of Robard Hall, two old plantation families locked in a bitter feud stretching back generations.

Like the roots of the live oaks lining the entranceways of their estates, the Lelierre-McBrandel feud goes deep. Respectively of French and Scottish stock, the two families settled in Red Meadows County in the late 1700s. By the dawn of the 19th century they each possessed a bustling plantation business largely worked by slaves. Marriage between the two plantation houses was not uncommon (a fact either family would rather forget). In 1806, a Lelierre gave the location of a significant sum of gold to her McBrandel lover. With her permission, he stole this gold from the Lelierres, and subsequently stole some more gold from his own family. A portion they held for themselves, the other they gave away in order to fund the abolition of slavery. Both lovers disappeared, fearing prosecution by their own relatives. Believing that the other stole their treasure, the two families became locked in a vicious blood feud. The end of the civil war in 1865 finally spelled disaster for both. The abolition of slavery, defeat in the war and loss of investment and gold practically bankrupted their businesses overnight.

However similarly damaged, their adversity seems only to have galvanised the animosity between the Lelierres and McBrandels.

II. Who am I looking for?
An erudite, dedicated female writer wanting to play a female opposite one or several of my characters. Keep in mind that this is merely one story pitch. I am available and looking for talented writing partners who are up for working out an intriguing tale with me. Who are our characters? What is the pairing? Outlaws trying to join the big leagues, lawman and con-artist, members of the two opposing families? Let's figure that out in tandem. Right now I was thinking about a returning veteran, but that's just a first thought. He would be homebound after fighting in the war, only to find everything in tatters. He has been living rough, maybe as a member of a disenfranchised company of outriders or gunslingers. Can your character put him on the straight track, or would she join him? Perhaps she's even more cunning and ruthless than everyone else?

Who and what am I exactly looking for? A (kinky) female writer of daring disposition, someone who is not scared of describing adult themes. An ambitious female keen on and capable of crawling into the brain of one (or several) character(s). I am looking for story and smut in somewhat equal measure and quality, though for me story usually takes precedence. Without a salacious story there can’t be salacious smut. My writing partner is someone who is preferably available over Discord (PM me) to discuss the plotline, hooks and characters. Who has at the very least glossed over my o/Os and preferences or other Request Threads. And, who is a proficient and prolific writer, unafraid of grey morality, explicit and passionate descriptions, love and pain both, grim tales, ... The RP itself would unfold on the forums, but (and I cannot stress this enough) OOC communication is key.

III. Practical notes:
Let me cover the practical stuff. Hopefully the next segment won’t come across as too coarse. If it appears blunt, it is for clarity’s sake. Never fear, ladies  ;) As a gentleman, I do have manners.

  • Communication:
    Communication is key! To that end I ask for contact details, be it Discord or Skype. Initial greetings and introductions over PMs is all well and good, but a collaborative experience like this benefits from a chat service. The past has taught me that OOC chatter and an extra channel of communication hugely improves the RP. I am eager to hear from you! Particularly when hammering out our character pairing and dynamic. It all adds ease, fluidity and spontaneity to brainstorming, discussion, etc. Merely corresponding over PMs is good but not good enough. However, actual RP would take place on the forum.

  • Post length:
    A writer who can produce quality posts of 400 words and up. Obviously, word count will vary per post, and is subject to character interaction, situation in the story, etc. Nevertheless, I think 400 – 500 indicates a decent average. My own posts usually cap around the 600 to 700 word range, but descriptive or introductory posts can grow to over double that. Check out my posts should you like an example of my writing, style and tastes.

  • Frequency:
    I try to get a post out at least once a week. Life can be hectic, I’m more than aware. The next bit ties in with communication. I am quite patient as long as you keep me in the loop. I tend to post at least once a week (two at the most), and I expect the same to maintain my interest in the game. This is a rule of thumb and obviously posting times may vary. If you simply aren't able to post to our game, I'd love it if you'd let me know. If you'd like to terminate the RP, there will be no hard feelings. If something isn’t working out or you’d like a change, just let me know.

In any case, my ideal partner should be available for brainstorming plot, pairings and characters. While I can provide barebone concepts or pairings, I would much rather hear suggestions and proposals. Where do you want to play? Who? What sort of character? These questions and more I would love to iron out via IM. Let's talk. The goal is to weave a tale that belongs to both of us, as opposed to me dictating the ensemble. If my current pitch did not appeal to you, then I encourage you to make a suggestion of your own.

Do you think you fit the writer profile? Hit me up and let's work something out!

Bump to say that while this story is my current craving, I heartily welcome ideas of your own or resurrecting older interest checks. I also updated with a few possible pairings or character suggestions.
