Setting: We'll have ourselves some fun with some old-fashioned RPing... I'd like to try a court-rp, so to speak. King and queen (or emperor and empress, instead), knights, guards, other major and minor nobility. I'd be happy to have different races involved: Humans, Elves (not Drow however, but dark elves would be fine), Lamia/Naga, Centaur, and others. Magic would also be a good thing, coming in three simple methods: Natural (spellcasting as you may be familiar with it), Runic (where a runic tattoo or symbol is used to draw and focus power in specific manners) and Summoning (summoning a demon, creature, or other type of being to use their power).
Scene: The king/emperor has been bed-ridden for several months and this fact is weighing heavily upon the queen as the royal physicians and healers are seemingly powerless to rid the king of the illness. Is there someone poisoning him in order to gain the throne, perhaps? Or is the queen attempting to take control for herself? Perhaps it is a plot to overthrow the monarchy/empire from within by way of the court sorcerer/sorceress. Meanwhile, the knights are training new recruits to try and bolster their numbers and the borders of the land before a potential enemy can attack once the king's condition becomes confirmed by spies or the like.
Looking for: The rulers (I don't play very well as leading rulers), knights, maidens-in-waiting, guards, etc. Yes, other-land type occupations such as ninjas are welcome here, as this would be a fantasy RP, but no freakin' Naruto ninjas, thank you (feel free to make one based off those characters if you want, but please keep in mind that this is at least more realistic than that setting is). As for how many people I'm looking for, I think perhaps half a dozen people with characters (up to a maximum of a dozen characters, hopefully) would be a good way to start. I've already attempted one group setting and lost control of it... So this'll be a second possibility. I'm not sure about dealing with some sort of System to use, so I'd prefer to go with freeform for now.
