I don't have all the particulars down just yet, but I was curious if anybody would be interested in an RP that took place during the siege of some mighty stronghold. It would probably be your basic fantasy world with elves, dwarves, orcs, and the like. All of the players would be characters in the stronghold, though they wouldn't have to start there.

The story would start just before the siege, everyone knowing it's inevitable. We would have a short preparation where everyone that doesn't start at the stronghold would get there. The opposing army would arrive and there would be a period before they actually launched the attack. The attacks would come in waves, leaving plenty of opportunity for writing battle sequences and down time for everyone to further their characters and push the overall story of the effect such a situation would have on people's pysche.

The ending would be up in the air, based on what the characters do. Obviously the odds would have to be stacked against our side for the story to be particularly fun, so there's a good chance the players' side would be overcome.

Any interest?
