F seeking plot (fantasy/modern day)
« on: February 05, 2011, 01:19:02 PM »
Specific ideas I'm currently toying with:

Ideas: The Captured or Reluctant Magic User vs. The Anti-Magic Hunter
Setting: Generic Fantasy

The kingdom of Wester has outlawed magic, their king hating it, their military using gunpowder and dwarven-made machines to win their battles. Within its boundaries, magic hunters roam, and magic users have but one fate if caught - to be dragged before the king. Most are executed on the spot; some few are removed and never seen again...

The neighbouring kingdom of Ester still allows magic, but their military is weak, their borders hard to reach, and their resources little. The struggle to feed their people is constant. There is talk of a marriage between Ester and Wester's children, to unite the kingdoms, but what that would mean for Ester's magic users, no one knows...

Lots of possibilities in this setting. There is the obvious magic user on the run, pursued by a magic hunter. A less obvious is a pair of magic hunters working together to bring down a known dangerous magic user, but one of the magic hunters harbours a dark secret...that she has magic too....

(Setting possibility: Dragon Age (Bioware)??

Gosh, I'm a sucker for this setting and realised recently it fit this premise. I really like the templar/mage interaction. I would love to play with someone to follow the plot of mage on the run, chased by a templar. Maybe the mage caught and they head back to civilisation only to find the conclave has bust, the circles are no more, and suddenly, the reason for the power imbalance has gone. Or maybe they run out of lyrium. Or maybe they run into problems they need to work together to solve. Maybe the templar has spent his entire time thinking of mages as less than human, and close contact with one slowly brings a dawning realisation of how awfully they've treated them...or maybe the mage has been abused by templars in the past, and slowly comes to the realisation that not all templars are the same.)

Idea: Pressurised Cooperation

Setting: Low Fantasy

Two military units; one of the stealthy assassins, the other of the stalwart guards. One rivalry that is deeply entrenched and fought over; one side dubbed backstabbing sneaks, the other dimwitted morons. Both unit captains hate each other and are content to avoid their opposite but for throwing the occasional insult...until their general requires them to work together to defeat a threat to the kingdom. Either they bury the hatchet, or their kingdom may fall.

Idea: Adapting to Civilian Life

Setting: Modern day

She's an ex-military sniper who is freshly back in civilian life and not coping too well with it. Interpersonal relationships have never been her strong point, and PTSD and paranoia are and issue. She meets someone who helps her adapt, with who she, cautiously - possibly with several missteps and catastrophies in between - forms an attachment to, and starts a relationship. But then, complications arise; afterall, it's not paranoia if they really are out to get you...

I'd be open to the other person being anyone from a local guy whose never left town in his life but can help her settle into it, to maybe someone slightly older who was also exmilitary and knows what she's going through.

Idea: The Reluctant Spy

Setting: Adaptable

He's a powerful man with few morals and very specific tastes. An outside agency wants him taken down, and need a tool to do it with. She matches those tastes...but has no interest in him. So they blackmail her into seducing him with the goal of using that connection to ruin him. But then the unthinkable happens and she starts to develop feelings, and maybe even trust him. The conundrum: confess, face his wrath and hope they can survive together, or keep her mouth shut, and let the man she loves die....

Please see my O.Os below for more information on what I'm happy RPing in terms of content and what expectations I have of a partner. If you're interested, either in one of the above or in pitching a new idea, please PM me.
