Oh and since some are still open...
here some of my older ideas which are not linked in my signature anymore:
The year is 2175. 120 years after Earth was hit by a giant sun-flare which destroyed presumably all of its population. Having been warned by scientists of the oncoming event, a Company called Lunacom had converted a huge Laboratory on the moon into living quarters. People were evacuated to the base and it was continuously extended. Over the years the base was extended and Lunacom had absolute control over the population there. At the time when the RP takes place, roughly 7500 people are living and working on the base.
But slowly resources that were brought along were running low, so hesitantly Lunacom had sent a mission to Earth to evaluated the possibility of survival on the planet. The mission was landed successfully but communication was interrupted after a few days and the crew not heard of again. So Lunacom decided to send another mission, to search for the first one and also fulfill the same directives as the original mission.
The Mission consists of its Captain, Andy O'Neill who's father was heading the first mission, a scientist and a handful of security members. Andy is a cynical man who has his doubts about Lunacom and the way they are running things. He does not take orders lightly and despises authority. They are not sure what awaits them on Earth, other than a world they had only heard of from Grandparents and history books.
Mission Commander - Andy O'Neill [my character]
Mission Scientist - name open [your character]
Mission security personnel – 5 to 7 people. Don't really have to be played extensively.
Inhabitants of Earth – might require 1 or 2 to be played by each of us.
1847, in the middle of the Irish famine a ship leaves for America. On board Irish immigrants who hope to find a better future in the US. The vast majority being simple farmers who had worked for the wealthy British elite. The only exception being a well off British merchant and family man, who hopes to make contacts for new trade possibilities in the new world.
After 5 days at sea the ship falls victim to a Storm at sea and even though the Captain and crew try their best, it capsizes. The only ones able to make their way to a small lifeboat are the merchant and the daughter of an Irish farmer. After a night in the Storm, fighting the elements and for their own lives, the fall asleep from exhaustion as the Storm calms down. As they wake up they find themselves on the shore of a small Island. Two people from the most opposite sides of the class structure of the time. One being used to be served, not having to do anything himself and having nothing but pity at best for the Irish working class. The other being a woman of simple upbringing, used to hard work and raised with a distrust and hatred for the British upper class.
Merchant - Thomas Rigby
The farm Girl – [name to be picked]
Possibly some natives, hadn’t decided yet.
A new Order
Tunesia 1900. Berber Leader Ahmed el Rashai, himself having studied in England, is disgusted by the way the French, Germans and British are imposing themselve in the country, by the way they fight over the land of his people. He leads a Band of his fighters to raid Trading posts and other settlements under European control. All three governments by now have set a bounty on hi head and even some of his countrymen have attacked him, trying to gain favor with the Europeans and of course cash in on the prize. The only men he can truly trust are his own tribesmen.
Some of hi own countrymen turning their back on him sparks his hatred for the foreigners even more so he continues for over a year with his attacks, until during a raid on a military post he discovers a woman. Unsure if he should keep her for himself, hold her for ransom, give her to his men as a prize or let her loose again, he decides to take her with him. They travel for five days back to his residence.
Sheik Ahmed el rashai
The Woman [nationality and name up to you]
Some other tribesmen and Ahmed’s two wifes. I would play the tribesmen whereas the wife might be your part.
There can be only one!?
Lars Eriksson was born in 1035 close to Ulfborg in Denmark in a small village by the Limfjord. As his father before him he became what people would these days consider a typical Norseman. He trained in weapons from an early age and eventually joined in a group of Vikings who raided across northern Germany, France and eventually England. After being gravely wounded yet surviving he found out that he was immortal. Shunned by his people as a Demon, cursed by the gods, he was driven away. Learning slowly of his skills, senses and possibilities he became more and more used to who and what he was. From another immortal he met he found out about being safe only on holy ground, learned the only way he was able to be killed, by being decapitated and the “Prize”, the prize of ultimate knowledge the last remaining immortal would receive
In (time-frame optional. We could go with middle ages, Victorian, American frontier times, modern, anything really) he met [xxxxx name to be picked by you] a woman, who also was immortal. Would they battle it out, would they team up, would they try and stay and fight together until they were the last remaining ones? And if so, what then … if there can be only one?
Lars Eriksson [My character] about 5'7 to 6', depends on preference, Broad shouldered, long blonde hair and a well groomed beard [not necessary. Basically his physical traits could be adjusted a bit. As long as wel keep the nordic look basically]
XXXXX [your character] pick origin, name etc yourself of course
Various other characters we run into, to be played by either of us, depending on story development etc.
Working on an idea which plays in feudal Japan. About a Samurai who is convinced that the woman that had come to their town, found by local fishermen, not knowing who or what she is, might be a member of the Imperial family. Soon after the woman appeared he received word that indeed a member of the family is missing, yet word has it, she was abducted. If he were to bring her back now, it would be thought that he is the one who captured her and he would be punished for something he didn't commit.
Something along those lines. Needs a bit of work on it. If you have any ideas and/or it sounds interesting, please let me know.
