Okay, I will try to express my idea as best I can.
This is going to be a challenging game as far as writing and RP ability.
I want to write a story together. Everyone will have their own characters, but also will have narrative power beyond that. We will all try to craft an overall narrative that is fun and exciting for everyone.
To make it sort of a writing and an RP challenge, as well as to make things more interesting and tense and suspenseful and exciting, characters are going to die. Power will shift in the world as great warriors and important princes and powerful merchants are killed and replaced, as allegiances shift in the setting.
Anyone may do anything they want, within their character's power and reason (like a merchant could summon all his associates for a meeting and get them to agree to something in one post, just by saying he does it).
People should plan ways to use eachother toward their goals, or ally, or go to war with people, or assassinate them, or marry them (for love or power) etc etc. The setting is very rocky socially and politically, and our characters are power players, good, evil, whatever.
The exact setting is to be discussed.
Taking character and setting ideas! This is in the discussion and interest phase.
