Back before E existed I first discovered the wonderful world of exotic storytelling on rpol.net. I joined a game loosely based around the movie "A Knight's Tale". It was a lot of fun and my character who started out as a pirate ended up falling in love, fighting a gemran Knight to defend her honor and was knighted himself.
Unfortunately rpol was far more strict on what they would allow in games run there. In fact it was one of the key reasons that E came into being. The game was ported over to E and thus I began my life here. Though the game didn't survive the move I still think it could be a fun story to do.
So I'd like to start up a new story based on "A Knight's Tale", or more specifically the setting, theme, etc. A medieval time period but with rock music and other minor contemporary tones. The story would involve original characters who follow the jousting tournaments from city to city. Some may be the knights and squires, others might be the armor smith, bar keep, maid, etc. There would be some kind of time keeping involved, perhaps one in game day per real life week or maybe a bit faster or slower as needed. tournaments would be set up by me and any volunteers to help things run smoothly. the winner's of each round would be determined by a simple percentile roll with the higher roll winning, but the actually fight can be played out in free form. Due to the nature of these posts some PM communication are pretty much required between the two combatants. You can even forgo the die roll if you can agree on a winner without one.
So how about it, Knights, jousting, sword fights, fiery maidens and lots of sex. Who's with me?
