This is a somewhat experimental roleplay, so please bare with me. It requires some explaination.
I'm planning on writing a series of books set in a high fantasy world called Garashria (by "High Fantasy", I mean it is a world completely spawned of Fiction, like A Song of Ice and Fire or Tolkien's Middle Earth). I think an interesting way that I could flesh out and better understand the world would be to hold a RP set in it.
The amount of information I'd have to give the players, however, in order for them to create characters that fit into the setting is... far too much, so I have decided to do away with that step altogether. I could, of course, but I think it's more fun if I try something different.
The premise is that various people in the real world (the characters played by the players, who are all humans from Earth) are swapped overnight into the bodies of people living in Garashria. They may or may not become involved in events that will have far-reaching consequences in the history of Garashria, though they will have no knowledge of such things until they are revealed (though, depending on how the characters act, they may never surface). Regardless, they will have to somehow adapt to the strange new world they now live in.
A few other details that need to be pointed out:
-This is the OOC thread. If you need to say anything OOC, say it there, please.
-The players know nothing about the world barring what is revealed to them, as they are from Earth
-The bodies that the people switch with are "random" (chosen by the GM, ie. me :P) and players have no control over that, the purpose being primarily to eschew explaination, but also to give the players a similar sense of disorientation to that of their characters
-The bodies of the players are generally very far away from each other and so, much of the rp will be played without interaction with other player characters unless they happen to meet
-The player characters may not act out of character in order to meet another player who is nearby (or to do anything else, really), as they have no way of knowing about the actions of other players IC
-The RP (and the setting in general) has a fairly serious tone, so take that into account when creating characters
-No details about the setting will be directly revealed, only through the PCs' interaction with the world
-For first posts, I will send everyone a description of their body and surroundings in a PM so they can describe how their character reacts to the environment in their first post. It might seem a bit awkward otherwise, I think.
-If you have a question about the RP, then try to PM or VM me instead of posting it in the RP, unless it has relevance to others, so as to keep the main RP on topic.
-All BMGf rules apply.
-All Roleplay Section rules apply.
-During the game, if you want to search an area, your body, etc. for items or something similar, write that your character searches the area or whatever it is and I'll tell you.
-I'm obviously taking the role of any and all NPCs
The RP has started, but feel free to send me a sign-up in a PM at any time, as it is easy to fit in new characters mid-game.
