Being new here and all, I thought I'd put some feelers out to see if anyone would be interested in participating in a non-violent storyline. I would work out details later, but the basic idea is to get away from combat-oriented stories--you know, good vs evil and all that ho-hum claptrap. Instead, I envision a fantasy-type setting that is very nature-centered, and quite oriented towards character development and world building. Any kind of character from orcs to little faeries would be welcome, but guess what? They all get along! Or at least don't go around trying to kill each other. Any takers?

could prove interesting...though I suggest it be posted in the "training grounds" as it is for character development that would be the best place for it.

sounds great! i love world-building, that's the most fun part!

I'm all for creation and development.:)

You mean I wouldn't be allowed to destroy anything or kill anyone????

Nice idea, but I'll have to give this one a miss. ;)

Okay, very cool; glad to see some people are interested! I've since had some more thoughts on this, so I should be posting something in the training ground within a short while. Haha, here's where we see if my idea of a "short while" jives with yours. ;) My plan is to create a small area for initial play, but since a big part of this particular game/story will be world-building, I also plan to invite other people to add areas as well. All of this, of course, will be posted in the Recruitment/OOC thread. The actual storyline(s) will unfold in the RP area (makes sense, right?).

And Flark, although this is not a concession to you, I was thinking of integrating a bit of low-scale conflict, but you probably won't have too many opportunities to kill and destroy.

I realize this is all vague and nebulous. More concrete details are knocking about in my noggin. They'll be puked out onto the training ground in the relatively near future.

This part I find interesting. Actually, it kind of jives with some of the ideas I've been having lately.
Can't wait to hear more. :)

Hi Greenwitch,

Yeah, I was drawn to your "Everyday RP" post when I first got here. I think you and I are on similar wavelengths. :)

Day by day by day...

Hi Greenwitch,

Sway is fine.Easier to type, not to mention shorter. :)

I'll take that as a compliment and I think you are right about having ideas along the same wavelengths.

'Kay, Sway it is. Actually, I typed Greenwitch b/c that's what I remembered at the time.

I posted some ideas for the setting I am developing in Benjmn's "Post ELE" thread, so if you are interested, please check that out:

For those interested, I've started this idea in the Training Grounds under the thread entitled "Hawthorn House." Right now there is only OOC/RECR posting, but with interest, we should be able to get a storyline running soon. :)
