Well, having just recently been accepted as a member here, I am looking to make my first real foray into the, ah, "meat" of the forums. ^_^ I don't really feel up to committing to a full-scale game (either running one or joining one) just yet, so I'm looking to start a one on one or small game. What exactly is entirely up to whatever anyone who responds wants, as far as whether it would be a continuing story, a "one night stand", or something else.
The first idea that came to mind was to do a story set in the Naruto universe, as it's a setting that I have some experience with and have a couple ready characters for. Now, it's important to note that this is not the familiar Naruto universe exactly; it's sort of the future of the Naruto universe. This is because I don't want to have to deal with pre-existing characters interfering with things too much. Basically, Naruto himself is Hokage of Konoha, and is in his late thirties, early forties. Most of the other familiar Naruto characters are either dead, retired, or have in one way or another given up on a life of adventure. Where exactly they all are is up for debate, but they likely won't be playing any more of a part in any events set in this universe than, say, the Hokage plays in the Naruto anime. Other than this jump forward in time, many things are much as they are in the anime, including for the most part the relationships between the various villages.
As far as content, given the setting and my personal tastes I'd definitely lean towards Heavy Exotic, although that's up for debate if someone is interested but has a problem with heavy or exotic games.
So, with this world setting in mind, is there anyone who'd like to participate in such an RP?
