So here it is; my fantastic idea for a realistic RP. No magic, no unicorns, no elves. Just plain 'ol storymaking.

Alright, this is set in a feudal sort of era. About 10 years ago, the royal Frennan(maybe) family performed a coup d'etat and took over. They attacked and wiped out the current ruling family, the (-Need name-)s. Before they came into power the nation was peaceful and prosperous, but the Frennans(dang that sounds wierd; it'll be changed later) have made the conditions terrible, blah blah blah. You know the deal.

Anyways, so there is something the Frennans missed. Somehow they missed one (-Need name-), and for these 10 years he has plotted revenge, and created a small militia to rise up against the tyrants currently in his throne. That's the jist of it.

Is this interesting?

yep it's interesting. are we part of the militia. Is the "missing one" a PC or NPC? Put some more detail into it. Overall it's an interesting idea.

Good to know it's interesting.

Yes, I was planning to have most (if not all) of the people who join be part of the militia. The "missing one," Cain, is going to be controlled by me. I don't want him to be the complete focus of the story though. He is more of a figurehead than anything. I might give him more of a character as the story progresses.

Detail-wise, the story should take place in the middle of the city. There is a pub (I will come up with names later) that is the base of operations for the militia. Around the nation there are similar pubs controlled by the militia. (The militia will have a cooler name also. All of these names will be chosen by Friday, when I plan on starting it).

So the main plot is, after the militia is formed, they work their way to the capital to throw a coup d'etat and take the throne back for the (-need name-)'s.

If you want to have any part in this, just give a shout out. Any questions, and I'll be sure to answer them.

You do mean feudal Japan right? If so... count me in.

I'm in when do we start

Alright, I'm going to post it very soon. Exile, I was going to go with Feudal Europe, but Japan sounds like a much better idea. I don't know much about Japanese history, so this is going to have nothing to do with actual history. Just give me a little time to reformulate the story to fit the Japanese theme. I will post the title here when I post the RP (in the general section).
