So I was realizing I'm only in one game here so far, and I've got some time so I was thinking about starting a game, but I'd like to gauge some interest.
The idea is blatantly stolen from a game I was in some years ago on Play By Web, so if the original creator of that game is here, start this up again! Otherwise, I'll do it if enough people are interested.
Okay, the premise:
Hidden away in the icy shadows of the great mountains stands a solitary keep, unknown to all but a few. The keep home to a powerful, but very secret organization known as the Web. The Web is a powerful and secret organization bent on establishing its control over the known world through assassination, intimidation, bribery, and war. They prefer to work in secret but will use any methods to advance their cause. Most members are assassins, warriors, wizards, and rogues, but even noblemen and merchants have been known to be welcomed into the secret ranks of the group.
Every so often handfuls of individuals who show promise are brought in secret to the keep, some willingly, some not; where they are trained by the masters to serve. As their training advances, they are sent on more and more difficult missions until they perish or have proven themselves worthy and are accepted into the group. At the head of this organization is a single woman, known only as the Mistress, though some masters know her true name. She seized power from the previous leader, a male, ten years ago, and turned the group into the powerful organization it is now. She is rarely seen, and most would rather keep it that way, for she is feared by all within the keep.
The mistress keeps order amongst members of the web via a small web tatoo given to each member upon acceptance. Through this magical link, she can punish, reward, and even kill any within her group. How she has gained this power is unknown, but anyone who could learn it, could overthrow the Mistress.
So, basically, we'd need masters and mistresses (Trainers) and various recruits who need to be trained. I'd take the pretty much hands off role of the Mistress (and through her, the role of Plot Keeper), and probably play a recruit as well, I don't know how well I'd pull off a trainer. :)
Oh, probably freeform unless people prefer a system (and if you do, GURPS, its all I know anymore).
