Fantasy Game
« on: July 22, 2010, 04:43:46 PM »
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.

I guess that would depend on your defination of "High Fantasy"

I do see magic as existing, so players could be sorcerers or people with innate abilities.

I do foresee a pleathora of fantasy races. humans would dominate, but elves, minotaurs, wolfen, nymphs, orcs, centaurs, and more would be allowed.

As for gming. I see each of us adding to the story and plot with new developments as we go along. That way everyone is part of the storytelling process and it isn't left ot one person to GM.

Next question, freeform or system based?

Sound great, Is mainly how I enjoy Role-playing.  Not having a Single Gm add to a very complex an entertaining storyline. But there should be a place already created and a grand storyline to follow at least if not it might take too many directions.

Yay! I am active again. Before I start the game, I would like a total of the number of people who would like to play.

Please continue to discuss. What would you like to see in the game. Myself, I was thinking about starting in a small city on the border of a neighboring barbarian Empire. Slavery is common in this world. The Barbarians may invade or the heroes may be sent to stop the invasion.

What else do people want from the setting.?

By anime influence what do you mean?

and yes that sound good, normally I enjoy playing a role of a hero but I would like to try out villain. Also I would iek to see that this story doesn't follow a cliche that Hero win but in fact i would like to see that it all depend on the actually skills with in the game itself

Oversized swords, cat girls though they are things like that occasionally I prefer to do a more realistic fantasy.

hmm, I understand this but I'm kinda confuse by the term you used "realistic Fantasy" sounds rather orthodox. But I too would like to eliminate odd  element of pure anime, something in the realm of Mythology. Now too imaginative but not too realistic. but then again I'm fine with just about anything sense i have no preference, other then avoiding reality base rps

Well I mean ok realistic is a bad word but I mean more along the lines of Lord of the Rings or the Sabriel novels.

I am not that found of anime cat girls myself. However, if someone wanted to do something like Larry Niven's Kzinti, then I would be alright with it.

If I were to start the intro thread. I will need one victim... err subject to be summoned while the rest of us decide upon their fate. Once that character is set, we will move on to the next player.

Absolutely, the more involved, the more fun it will be. If the group gets too large, we can always splinter off.

I will start the summoning thread. DKDBSD can be summoned. The rest of us can take the rules of the Magicians who are summoning the newest heroes. Once the first hero is set, we can continue with the next until all of us have characters.

I will post the link to the thread shortly.

Shiny I assume I should wait until you've decided before looking? It'll make it more surprising.
