Hello there! My name is Overlord Thraka and I'm looking for a good partner for a long-running RP based on and in a setting of my own design. I've been RPing for nearly 4 years now and have constantly evolved as a writer and author, long gone are my days of one-liners and paper thin characters, now I want to write properly, but my skill pertains better to RPing than to creating a novel on my own, and so this is where you come in.
The basic idea of this RP is I want to sort of test run a plot for a book that in my dreams, I would write and it would be well received. Being the realistic sort I know this unlikely, but hey, I can dream can't I? The premise is simple and worldbuilding opportunities are many, and with a partner (or possibly more if I find those willing to work together) I would like to create an RP based on the writing prompt I gave myself to start my Fantasy epic.
I am heavily inspired by the likes of Game of Thrones, Deltora, Lord of the Rings and the like, but I shall admit that I've not done as much reading in the recent past as I should have, focused more on film and television for my media consumption. To this purpose I know my inner monologue suffers, where as my physical descriptions flourish, so long as you don't mind them going a little indepth and being highly detailed and specific. Nothing so much as going into detail on every piece of furniture in a room, but as an example, I at least find myself competent and confident when it comes to writing action scenes. Just look at a few of my recent posts for examples.
Now as to the specifics of my setting and whatnot, I must attempt to keep them muddled and basic here, for I've been warned on many an occasion to 'Protect my IP' so here's the basic idea. It's a fairly standard Fantasy World, except Elves and Humans absolutely despise each other. Almost as much as they despise Orcs and other Greenskinned races.
Long ago the Humans were invited into the Elven lands to live there, after aiding them in a great war against the Greenskinned beasts. Now over time, tension has broiled and broken on multiple occasions. The humans expanding their territory as needed, well beyond the limits of what the Elves set them. This, seen as a breach of contract and bordering on a downright act of war, prompted the High Elves to lash out in defense of their lands, slaying a small town's worth of settlers. Thus began the first of the Elf Wars. That was over 1000 years ago. Now, the 9th Elf War is raging, while in the South the Orcs have found a new master, and are on the march once more.
Your character is a young one, living in a port-town. We begin our story with the sacking of your town by raiding orcs. You are far from the only survivor, but the battle claimed the lives of your family. You now join with others to bring an end to the Elf War and prove the danger of the oncoming invasion from the Southern Badlands.
Think of it kind of like Game of Thrones, only there's not armies warring for the crown, but a number of Human and Elven nations battling each other over long-standing grudges and hatred, as well as some politics thrown in. I'll confess I've not got a lot plotted out, and with your help maybe we can work through this Fantasy epic together, bring about the rise of the Alliance once more and crush the Orcs once more, driving them out of the lands forever and a day.
So! Interesting part is over, I will ask some rules be followed.
1: No partners under 18. This is going to have some adult content, certainly a great deal of violence at the very least, and written or not I'd feel more comfortable with a partner of age. I myself am 21 if you're interested in knowing that.
2: Advanced Writers only please. Or possibly High-casual if you count yourself that. I like good, long, detailed posts and writing, love love love it. I understand that's not always possible, especially in an action scene, but I'm going to provide and expect 3+ detailed paragraphs on most posts.
3: I'm looking for a serious partner in this. If you're just like "Oh hey, this sounds kinda cool..." then I don't think this is for you. I want someone who'll go all out with me, someone who'll work together with me in plotting this out, making a masterpiece of RPing a story. Someone willing to play a multitude of characters, someone willing to CREATE with me. Not someone who'll put minimum effort in and expect me to do all the hard thinking.
I think that's it to be honest... I'll edit in more as needed, but this is going up, and hopefully soon it's going down!
So yeah! If you wanna RP out a complex, medieval Fantasy world and stuff... PM me! Don't post in the thread as all it will lead to is me asking you to PM me. Just let me know that you're interested and explain why and what you can bring to the table! If enough people show proper interest, I'm going to attempt this as a small group RP, 4 people or fewer, where we collaborate in the story. Though be warned, this setting was originally of my design, and there is concrete in place. Some ideas just won't work, but I'd love to hear them anyways.
For now, I hope you enjoyed the read and I'm looking forwards to RPing with you!
