Looking for some people

Discussion in 'Interest Checks' started by Kail DeWraith, Sep 22, 2015.

  1. Hey everyone, while I do not have any set ideas as of right now I was hoping there would be one or more people who would like to "sit down" and brainstorm with me about a story arc/world/anything they would like to do. I am pretty much up for anything. I mostly tend to lean towards the crime drama, fantasy, sci-fi, action/adventure genre of roleplaying but if the story we create s interesting enough I am interested. Please let me know if anyone is interested. Thanks!
  2. Crime drama, eh? I think that'd be kind of neat! Definitely a change of pace from the 'norm' here -- ZEJ has a very predominant preferential 'slant' towards sci-fi and fantasy worlds. I would be very interested in sitting down to brainstorm something. The question is, do you have any hooks that you want to share with the class, before we begin?
  3. I don't have really any set in stone idea that I would like to start with. I am very open to creating something together and going from there. That being said, I am generally very interested in the criminal element of the world and how they interact with their surrounding environment. These criminals can be anything from street thugs, drug runners, mafioso, outlaw, outlaw bikers, or anything of the sort. For whatever reason these people that are viewed as extreme by the normal standards of society but viewed as heroes or legends in the subculture they live in has always been an interest of mine.

    And honestly, we could even mix in sci-fi or fantasy with the crime. I always have loved reading about the scumbag that does "good" things because it benefits them. (I am reminded of Jarlaxle from R.A. Salvatore's works as I write this.)

    Would there be something you would be more interested in Eebit? I am honestly just excited to get back to writing for fun. This is all practice for me to help regain some of the "creative fuel" I have lost since I have spent so much of my time writing in an academic and research setting for the past few years.
  4. Sorry for the double post but I have an idea that popped into my brain recently; by recently I mean literally about 4 minutes ago. Maybe 5 minutes.

    I think it would be interesting to do a mix of dark/supernatural sci-fi with real world military drama. The idea came from my recent research I did on Private Military Contractors and Companies. The overall... I guess you could call it a theme... Would be that these PMC's have a contract with the Government to handle all of the "dark" stuff that goes on in the world. 

    This does kind of hearken back to Hellboy, Supernatural, and stories of this nature. What do you think? I am all for fleshing out the story, the background of the company, and whatever else we would need to do.
  5. Certainly a fascinating idea.
  6. Would you be interested pending my ability to build a world that isn't utter garbage?
  7. Sorry for the delayed response. I could have sworn I posted here again...

    I think the idea of a criminal-attuned roleplay would be a lot of fun. It could be really neat to partake in a roleplay with a society that "reveres" the criminal activity that (I would assume) our characters partake in. If you wanted to go the sci-fi or fantasy route, you could take an older idea of mine to play around with; the idea that magic comes from a "booster shot" of some sort. The implication being that the characters could get addicted to the usage of magic, and need to get more and more of the drug to impose their magic on the world.

    Just a loose little idea. I would be very interested in hashing out a setting and story, if you would have me.
  8. Hey Eebit, sorry for the delay. I've been tied up with some real life crap that is just....well.... crappy. Anyway, I would LOVE hashing out the details of the addictive magic/drug story line. That is, if you are still interested.
  9. Oh, no problem. I'm in a similar situation where I've been decently busy the past couple days/weeks! But I would certainly still be interested and up for it. Just give me a holler when you're feeling less bogged down by real life stuff~
