One of the things that I am interested in is history, at the moment I'm reading a book on Chinese history, and one on the Way of the Samurai.

I was looking through the RP's and figured that one on Chinese or Japanese history could be quite interesting. You would create a character and he/she would be one officer of a predetermined warlord in a certain time period of the countries history.

For example I could make a character: Mitsuhide. He could be one of Shingen Takeda's officers. And then the RP could be about the planning and execution of the Battle of Kawanakajima.

Anybody else think they'd be interested in something like that? Or have any ideas to make it better?

It does sound pretty interesting. Kinda reminds me of those Otori books written by Lian Hearn that I've been reading. Pretty short books, think you should check them out.

Sounds like a game called Samurai Warriors (Japanese history) for the PS2 (and XBOX) and its counterpart Dynasty Warriors (Chinese history). Both games are great and based on actual history, battles etc. That would be fun to RP that out. I could help with ideas. Im game :D
