Blue Rose: Love and the Land

Post by cczernia » Wed Jul 05, 2006 8:38 am

Ok, this is for the Blue Rose one-shot I had posted about earlier. I want to run it in three weeks at the end of July. Tuesday the 25th is my preferred night but I can also do it Wednesday the 26th or Sunday the 30th.

Location is still undetermined.

As for the game it is the adventure of two lovers from different countries where one decides to run away to be with his lover. They must cross a dangerous swamp with the help of their friends. The theme focuses on romantic fantasy but is not explicit or sexual.

Characters in a bit:

All kidding aside, I would totally play in this if I were around. But I'm not, so... one more opportunity missed! Add it to the list.

Well Allia is Ry-bonded in that she has a spiritual connection with an intelligent cat.

I've debated making Garith and Allia Asirin sexless in that the players can choose their sex if they wanted to play a same sex couple. However, I find it problamatic in writing their backgrounds so defaulted with the safe route.

No, not good enough-- unless you make her about 80 and give her 29 more cats and a decrepit house on the corner. "[i]Now [/i]we're talking," I'd say if that were the case.

If you're laughing at my line, then good, cuz it was a joke. I don't REALLY want to play a lesbian cat-woman.



Well, maybe I do. Hmm...

That was a lot of fun and prepared me for a game if only a few people show up (which tends to be my lot in choosing games).

Anyway, I would like to play again but I want 4-6 players. I'm planning on running Saturday Aug 12.

If you are interested let me know if you can make the game.

Well there was actually a really good moral dilemma and both of our characters were pretty much diametrically opposed in solutions. I'm sure the way it turned out has really caused Allia some sleepless nights. Good adventure.
