Let's Give Historical RP Some Love Too

So, I am a huge history nerd. I wouldn't call myself a Historian that's a title reserved for people with credentials which I do not have. However, I do love history. I love studying it, reading about it, watching historical dramas, reading historical fiction, playing video games that take place during historical time periods, and probably more than any of those others. I love doing historical roleplaying. History is ripe with interesting times and places that can give way to many great scenarios for characters to explore and I think doing this with a partner is one of the most awesome ways to appreciate history even if its not totally 'accurate'. I wouldn't say that I am a big fan of establishing already alternative histories for the start of an RP but rather altering history through the actions of our characters in the RP. My main comfort zone is European history between the Hellenistic Age up through the Beginning of the Reinassance but my general knowledge extends probably from around the Ancient Greeks to the Napoleonic Era. I'm also not only knowledgeable about European History and have a decent handle on periods of Asian History as well though my knowledge where Africa and Pre-Colonial North and South America are concerned is fairly limited.

This is not to say that I am completely opposed to some fantastical or mythological elements as well. Many cultures and peoples were incredibly superstitious, many groups, especially with regards to the Northern European Pre-Christian cultures, believed that Gods walked among them in disguise to observe and test mortals. But most of the themes I like to explore in the Historical Fiction genre of RP involve character relationships that deal with cultural and religious clashes, preferably both, politics, ancient and medieval warfare are also things I love to include in RP's but anything and everything is up for discussion. My O/O's are linked in my signature for those who want to know what my sexual preferences are and here I will list some story themes I'm looking to explore in specifically historical RP settings and after that I will also list some specific scenarios that I have in mind already.


Themes Included:
-Romance
-Apprehensive Romance
-Arranged Marriages
-Political Intrigue
-Warfare
-Traveling/Adventure/Exploration
-Desperate Struggles (Whether they be martial battles, political battles, overcoming adversity of any kind really)





First Prompt: Reclaiming The Western Empire

Reclaiming The West
The Western Roman Empire was considered dead and gone by 496 AD even though the Eastern Roman Empire later known as the Byzantines launched several ultimately failed attempts to retake it from the Barbarian Kingdoms who now inhabited it. In this prompt I would be playing the role of a young Eastern Roman General who was tasked with the daunting prospect of retaking the Western Empire for the Eastern Empire. This RP prompt can take place in almost any period from the Early Dark Ages to the High Medieval Period and obviously the connotations of such actions will vary wildly depending on what time period we decide to go with. Who your character is in this scenario could be anything from a female Warrior Woman, perhaps originally an enemy who becomes friends and even lovers with the young Roman General to a foreign noblewoman who is given to him as an attempt to secure peace from the new Roman Expedition Force. She could be from anywhere really, French to North African or Middle Eastern leaving room for possible Cultural and Religious clash.

Themes Included:
-Romance
-Definite Warfare
-Light to Heavy Political Intrigue
-Apprehensive Romance
-Possible Arranged Marriage
-Culture Clash
-Possible Religion Clash




Second Prompt: Alexanders Lost Son

Alexanders Lost Son
This Rp would involve my character being the unknown son of Alexander The Great. Born in secret and only a select few are aware of even the idea that he may or may not exist. Of course when his father died and he saw his Empire broken apart he had to flee to another part of the world to escape the wrath of any who might seek to harm him to prevent him from attempting to claim the right to his Fathers lands. This RP takes place in the Hellenistic Period, after Alexander died in 323 BC his Generals split up his empire into several Kingdoms, the main ones being the Seleucid Empire, Ptolemaic Egypt, The Kingdom of Antigonos, and Baktria. Who your character is can vary from a noblewoman in a court he is hiding in, or perhaps he hides himself among the common people and falls in love with your character who is a common woman. Of course this RP will likely lead to the idea of him trying to return to Macedon and the Middle East to reclaim his fathers empire.

Themes Included:
-Romance
-Warfare
-Political Intrigue
-Possible Cultural and Religion Clash




Fourth Prompt: The Wanderer

The Wanderer
This is simply a far more vague and open ended idea. This prompt can take place at any place, any time period in history. My character in this scenario is merely what the title states. A wanderer, roaming the world in search of adventure, riches, or perhaps just out of sheer curiosity. Your character can be whatever you want them to be, they will become entangled and perhaps he becomes caught up in whatever shenanigans she is involved in or perhaps she will choose to travel with him and they will wander the earth together discovering who know's what in who knows where.

Themes Included:
-Romance
-Exploration
-Possible But Unlikely Warfare
-Possible Political Intrigue
-Possible Cultural and Religious Clashes




Sixth Prompt: The Royal Protector

The Royal Protector
This prompt is vaguely inspired by the video game series Dishonored but it works just as well in a historical setting but if you're looking for a fantasy setting or even a canon setting we can discuss that as well. This will also probably require more discussion and setup between us for reasons that will become apparent. Essentially the prompt surrounds the idea of MC being the Royal Protector or Bodyguard to a Queen or an Empress (who he was lovers with) who is murdered and he is framed for the murder. He manages to escape from Prison before his execution and begins the lengthy process of revenge both for the death of his lover and for the frame job. Who your character is, is entirely up for discussion. Someone who seeks to help him on his path for revenge? Merely someone who offers him shelter while he is on his warpath? Someone who intends to double cross him when its convenient?

Themes Included:
-Romantic relationships
-Non-Romantic sexual relationships
-Violence
-Political Intrigue




Sixth Prompt: Rising Warlord

Rising Warlord
This prompt follows the idea of a common mans rise to prominence through charisma and force of arms. Ideally this would likely be set in the Dark Ages period after the collapse of the western Roman Empire when such a feat is most possible, but if you have a different idea for someone leading a peasant rebellion or revolution in later time periods such as the Medieval Period or the Enlightenment period that is also something I am willing to discuss. Your character could already be his wife, supporting him on what he perceives as a righteous crusade, a woman he meets along the way, a simple working girl or perhaps even an arranged marriage to spare one noble family or the other the axe when he rearranges the political landscape of his region.

Themes Included:
-Violence
-Romance
-Possible Arranged Marriage
-Political Intrigue
-Warfare

Yay For History




If you liked any of these prompt ideas please do not hesitate to message me so we can discuss them further! Also please make sure to check out my O/O's to see my list of interests for sexual kinks and themes I'm pretty open minded in general and am willing to explore a lot of them. If you have other ideas for Historical RP's please feel free to message me as well! I love History Based RP's and would love to do more of them. I am also interested in exploring Historical RP's including more mythological elements but I just didn't have any ideas off the top of my head for them at the moment and may add some later.

I have some aligning interests in medieval culture and or religious clash / exploration storybuilding. Hesitant to throw myself into a one on one, but perhaps we can contrive a setting for a scene or three and see what goes. Of your listed settings, I have interest in Reclaiming the West, Vinland and the Queen's Return.

Going to give this a long overdue bump.

I've updated the list, removing plots that I currently have ongoing.

This is due for a bump, I've added several new prompts.

Also I've shifted away from overly specific prompts and all of the newer prompts are a lot more vague and sweeping and things like time period, context etc are far more up for discussion.
