So, I've had this setting floating about my head and am throwing it out, seeing if anyone else wants to join on this mayhem of sorts. Time: MedievalHouses ruled by Masters and Mistresses dominate society, the economy, and culture. The lowest of men could build himself higher than the purest Noble's blood if he managed to amass the best House of them all. Houses are supported monetarily and otherwise by patrons and contributors eager for the entertainment, the company, its displays and its wares. Each house consists of a Head Master and/or Mistress and then "pledged" ones that may or may not form as a council depending on the house; others may elect not to join a House but are typically associated at length. Some slaves are captured, others purchased, and a few select ones bred. A slave is measured by their loyalty, bloodline, talents, and appearance; some are even the reason for their House's fame.
For generations the Houses of Vaughn and Kinsey have born an ill will toward each other, their hatred fueled by a rivalry too old for either side to truly recall the details. For years the trespasses have been minor and petty until one morning the Vaughn's most valuable slave is stolen away and proudly displayed hours later by the Kinseys. Now the war between the Houses has begun and only one can emerge from the battlefield. Social and political intrigue, kidnappings, fights, espionage, and more await.
Seeking: Masters, Mistress, slaves and patrons of the House of Vaughn -- humans only
-- as the rivalry between the Houses heats up. Double agents? Co Head of the House? Let's talk.
Aye, it's a bit of a work in progress -- and Xanathos is a sexy, helpful devil.
