Right now I am deverified as I have been gone quite a while, However when I get activated again, I would like to start up a fantasy game.
I would like the world to be one of our own creation. Lots of magic and fantasy races. There should be some overall storyline threat such as an invading barbaric horde, evil sorcerors intent on ruling the world and more.
The details of the world can evolve during game play as the story develops.
To start. I was thinking that the character creation can be done be committee. Your soul has been summoned to this fantasy world to help save them from the big bad. You will be forced into bodies and roles not of your own choosing.
The details of your race, profession, etc, will be determined by the other players based off your roleplaying and description of your personality. Of course, just desserts is allowed. Sometimes it could be fun to walk a mile in someone elses shoes. For example, if the group deems it so, the heroic, yet physically challenged character can become a powerful barbarian. A strong willed but petite girl can become a honorable knight. Or the macho bully could end up in the form of the young princess. Trapping someone in a body that the others feel is suitable is also allowed and encouraged.
Let me know your thoughts on this and if you think it could work.
