Dangerous Liaisons/Cruel Intentions RP
This story is based on the films Dangerous Liaisons and Cruel intentions (there the same plot just set in different times), this story however will lean more towards the former setting.
Essentially the story is two step-siblings are greatly attracted to one another but due to their familial ties they cannot be together so instead they use their cunning and powers of persuasion to manipulate the people around them, and climb a few social ladders. But they are not the only people adapt at seduction...
The main plot point is that the King's only heir has come of age, there is one slight problem, she is a naive girl whose education is severely lacking…someone must teach this girl that court is full of wolves.
One such predator is Fernando D’limante, the stepson of the Marquis D’limante. Fernando and his mother were shipped from their native Spain a score of years ago, much to the disgust of the Marquis's daughter Angelique. It's not that she hates her brother; she wants him disgraced, removed from her family and then everything will be back the way it was. This being the reason a bet was formed…he is to make the princess his bride, if he wins Angelique will be his lover, if he loses then he will have to give up the one thing he loves more than himself...his title and all claims to her fathers money. Of course there is a deadline to the bet...but a few other plot twists along the way are sure to spice up an otherwise dire season at court.
NB: The setting is a Victorian Era France (just ignoring the revolution) and players will be other members of court. Also the D’limente characters are taken as GM characters.
The bet is meerly the starting point, players are free to add their own bets/plots as the game progresses.
