Viking RP Discussion ((OOC))

Postby Maria » Sun May 02, 2010 7:50 pm

Been tossing around an idea for an RP in my head for a while now and I wanted to see how many people could possibly be interested in a Viking RP (and one not set in the DT worldsetting).
I'll elaborate more on it as I get all my ideas on paper and as I start to flesh out the worldsetting.

Another thing, don't be afraid to post here with ideas of what you may like to see in this RP, the worldsetting, etc. I'd be more than happy to hear them out and take them into consideration as I write up the worldsetting.

Sounds interesting. What kind of vikings are we talking here; historical, mythological, or popular culture?

Leaning more on historical (when it comes to the portrayal of the human characters), but since it will be a fantasy setting mythology will be involved. So there will be stuff like dwarves and giants.

I'm assuming there will also be elves in this setting, as the whole elf lore comes from pagan Scandinavia. I'm a huge proponent of Norse mythology and culture, so PM me if you have any biting questions. Once rules and such have been provided, I'll gladly participate.

...

... and for the love of Baldr, unless it's for ceremonial purposes, do not make the helmets have horns. Few things upset me more than the "traditional" Viking horned helmets.

Why in the world would I give their helmets horns? XD The only person who would have any sort of hornes on them would be a druid or something with a headdress.

There weill be elves but I don't think they will be playable characters (DT has enough elves as is).

Alright, good. I got nervous for a second there. What about Valkyries?! You cannot have a VRPG without VALKYRIES! Also, I would like a little bit more information of the setting and rules involved. We're playing as Vikings, so I'm assuming one of the main game activities will be sailing to England/Ireland/France and performing raids, pillaging, and plundering and such, but I would also hope that there would be some non-action based aspects to the game as well, such as ship-building/upkeep, colonization, trade, religious ceremonies, and the like. I am also going to assume for fairly obvious reasons that the inclusion of sexual assault and religious-based animosity toward southern Europe will be absent?

(As a sidenote, aren't druids part of Celtic culture? 8P)

Well the RP will deal with more than just raiding, as it will likely take place as Christianity makes its way north. It will heavily deal with viking culture back home as well as the occasional raid.

Godly entiteties will be strictly NPC, can't have people godmodding all over the place.

As for the game the rating will be pretty high as yes, in this setting rape happens, animal cruelty happens, murder happens, drinking happens, swearing happens etc. All I ask is that you guys don't write porn here, stuff dealing with sex should be dealt with a brush stroke (alluded to and with a tasteful fade to black).

This is a Viking setting, not Barney and friends.

Heh, yes, the spreading Christians and their new god Hvítakristr (the white Christ) are the main opposition to our darling pagans.

Charlamange was a larger threat because he had control over a very large empire. (which contested of Germany, France, Spain, northern Italy and Austria.) He had paladins, which where very well trained Christian knights and he was very well organized. In fact it was the centraliztion of power that made Vikings jobs harder.

Oh, the absence and rarity of plate armor should make for a marvelous change of pace. *taps nose* Thank goodness I have a level of knowledge regarding armor comparable to God.

Oh, I'm interested by the way. ^^;
