i wasnt sure if anyone would be into this setting, but it does interest me a lot. Im not sure about playing too many different roles, but i can certainly try.
When i do roles set in the past, i play them better if I'm a time traveller, there by accident, or on purpose. I could have been kidnapped in my own time and hidden in the town, or appear by accident and be made to work in the brothel or saloon.
What do you think.
