Another pleasant day in God's own country. The sun was shining, the birds singing- Or shrieking, depending on the bird in question- and the peaceful soundtrack told that nothing *too* bad was around. The town of Heroes' Hearth had been a mercifully quiet one, the countryside free of the near-constant sounds of running, hacking and blasting so common to the big city; Given the relative peace of the region, there hadn't been an adventurer here for *months*, something for which the good people had been grateful.
Of course, some people had said that building a village atop the notorious Wormcrawl Fissure- So named when a part of adventurers had, with typical style, laid waste to an evil god, who'd in turn laid waste to the surrounding landscape, in his death agonies- had been a *bad* idea, especially since countless tribes of teeming humanoids lurked within the darkness...Along with worse things, too!
Those naysayers have no idea of business. Something like a cottage industry had sprung up around the Fissure- Ready to feed the adventuring populace with spellbooks, weapons, potions, as well as the other paraphernalia of the rich adventuring caste; Wine, women, song...In fact, the town had long grown beyond its original boundaries, and was only spreading. Alas, adventuring season- That frenzied period of activity where the forces of evil where at their zenith, drawing down hordes of greed-crazed madmen to plunder the chasm- was just over, the hordes of darkness severely curtailed in number, lying low...Until next year.
Of course, with the danger at its ebb, this is time for those with...less savory desires to venture in...
There's a common trend in high fantasy, with male characters meeting all sorts of exotic female creatures: Nymphs, dryads, succubi, demonic princesses offering their favors...And so on. In this game, though, I'm looking for someone to invert this...
The idea I've had is that two high-level female characters (I'll be playing as one) venture into the Fissure, in search of plunder...And something else, entirely. Maybe it's a dare, a bet gone wrong, or alcohol, but they're *very* partial to the male monsters the meet on their way...I've always had a fondness for the 'humanoid' races of orcs, goblins, ogres, and I find the idea of the tables being turned for once *verrrry* interesting.
I'll need one GM to role-play the various 'encounters' they meet...The girls are high-level enough that this is largely a game to them, though they *might* have severely underestimated the threat. Generally, though, it's a subversion- Instead of bodice-ripping NC, we have the female adventurers willing, even *eager* to get their hands on oh-so-manly creatures they meet...Though they might regret it when the drinks wear off the morning after. ^_^
Basically, this is a fun, romp-type game, though we *could* make it more serious. I'm just gauging interest for now...
