Reform! Reform! Heed the mighty battle horn! Form ranks, make you ready sword and shield!

This has gone poorly. My hat is out of the ring.

I'm here, just been a bit busy.
I've completed the first part of my submission-the guild sheet, detailing the faction my character will head up.

Oh, I actually have some cliff notes on culture/government and the works.

What I’m envisioning for his homeland is a chaotic stew of city states ruled by various Elector Princes, with a strong base of ‘merchanter’ princes underneath them. The city states, the Free Cities of Verenzia, are a melting pot of diversity in many ways-you can find merchants from just about everywhere. Walk down the street and you’ll see a dozen things you do not know. Sexuality tends to be fluid too-society is pretty open. Bisexuality is more or less expected. Though there is a strong undercurrent of homosexuality.

Philosophers too, thrive in the open societies of Verenzia. A collection of homegrown thinkers and exiles who love to write long-winded treatises and srgue endlessly with each other. As is the wont of every philosopher. But...this libertine, thriving, even vibrant culture, does have a downside. Wars between city states are common. Power can change hands quickly. Street fights between merchanter princes are common in the less stable cities. A constant low-level civil war.

“Ah, the free cities!”

“If you don’t like the politics, wait five minutes for new ones!”

That’s...Uhm, the cliff notes. More or less a summary of the general time and feel I’m going for. Think that’ll fit in?
Some tentative interest here. I've been really trying to break into group roleplays for awhile now-I've honed my skills in partnerships and all of that, but it's been a bit since I've shaken off the rust and leapt into a group venture. It's a shame, because group stuff is how I got my start.

I'm curious however, how much leave are we given to world build? Right now I've got a bit of a concept of a foreign merchant princeling (not...actual royalty, but hailing from a nation where royalty is something of a concept that's up for grabs. Have a manor? Have money? Or simply have enough scary men with swords? Congratulations. You're a prince now!) out to make a profit, at first. Maybe pick up some lore while he's at it.

Add it his ever-growing collection of curiosities.

The works.

Basically, someone with no initial investment in revolution/revolt, but gradually finds himself drawn to oppose the crown, despite his the risks it poses to his operations.

Now, if worldbuilding isn't allowed on the part of players-I found no references in the rules, so I'm not sure-then this won't work clearly. So I'm asking if the above concept sounds workable before I go to the effort of drawing up a character sheet.
I'm trying to get back into public RPing, I might be interested.
I would be interested. It's about time for me to try to get back into group RPs.

Provided the RP is still open, of course.
I'll be withdrawing. I don't really think my concept fits with the universe here, and I'm reluctant to come up with another.

Work continues on the profile!

Aside from what I mentioned earlier-I might add a specialization in mega-industrial engineering. Not full on Dyson spheres. No worries.

Space habitats, and and large energy harvesting stations, etc.

*imagines a large station dedicated to food harvesting via photosynthetic protein farms*

No one ever goes hungry again.
