So, due to the resent failure of the last RP I have been trying to figure out why it failed. I think one of the reasons was a lack of a story for other stories to stem off. So, for a bit I have been thinking about a new one that could possibly fix that (involves powers which I'll go over later) so your opinions and ideas are more than welcome. Thanks!
The country is ruled by government and those of noble birth. They live in the center of the country away from the rest of what have become districts. The districts are all responsible for different things that they supply to the capital for food, water, shelter, and protection from the different creatures that plague them. Lately the government has sensed a rebellion beginning to stir in the districts and so they have begun to try quieting them in different ways. One way is that those arrested for disobeying are put in the arena in the capitol and forced to fight against one of the capitol elites. Victory, and they are free, failure means death. Rebellion supporters found get made examples of and some are taken away for even worse punishment and torture.
(Basically you can choose to be a rebel or government enforcer. Both sides will have generic soldiers and elite groups)
I would like to allow you all to use powers within reason. For example, each character must have weaknesses and limitations to their powers. No mages that can do anything they want as much as they want kind of thing. One example would be something like having a fire mage that can use some fire spells that use minor amounts of magic but do little damage, up to using some kind of explosion magic that delivers a lot of damage but also wears the caster out. Me and other staff will look over your character to make sure they are balanced to prevent OP characters.
Since we can never seem to figure out the length of a day I was thinking we could just make a week in our time a day in the RP. Rough idea, not perfect yet.
Anyway, there is the pitch idea. Let me know what you would think. Reactions will base if I decide to go further with it or not. Figured I'd at least pitch what has been in my head on and off for awhile lol.
