    Is Cristal still here? Shouldn't someone start setting up the rules so that we could start soon? Or maybe use the rules from my last RPG (and just add some new ones)?

    Rules are not that important as I believe all eligible participants have probably participated in a RPG before. They should know what to do and what not to do.

    I believe we should first compile of list of who is participating. This would make it neater and less confusing. We would then start working on the plot. Then, we should proceed to set some basic guidelines as agreed on by all players.

    kidd, you know me so well There's a Chinese saying: A dynasty is easy to change, but a person is not. I guess this applies to me. If this gets started I'll try my best to actually stay in it.

    I don't mind playing a good guy or bad guy, as long as I'm NOT a main character.

    Also, I don't mind helping out in the overall plot development, if anyone needs me.

    Please! If we use the end of HSDS as our main plot then maybe you could be a new Kongtong Sect leader or something like that. What do you think? You could appear out of nowhere and then disappear again, a mysterious character maybe? But I'd much rather you have a supporting role at least.

    If we base it on JY, can I be a descendant of YG please? I am an avid fan of YG!

    If not, then I will have other ideas for my character.

    I suppose we will have to wait for Cristal to confirm that.

    Cristal disappeared.

    Lets just take a vote: someone develop a non-JY background story so we can vote on it.
    We can still have famous sects like Shaolin, Wudang, Kunlun, Ermei and in early Ming. Just no relation to HSDS. So we are not tied down by anything.

    Hey kwekmh, if you are going to be from AT sect I want to be too. How old is your character?

    I like to play young characters - my age would probably be around 18 to 20.

    If the plot is not based on JY, who would be the leader of AT? Do we create an imaginary character?

    I have already expressed my interest in participating. I want to play a minor character.

    If it sets in the beginning of Ming Dynasty then I'm willing to take some Mongolian role. I assume during that time Mongolians were still a treat.

    Default some story ideas

    DISCLAIMER: THESE ARE ALL JUST ROUGH IDEAS, AND ARE DEFINITELY OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS AND INTERPRETATIONS. ALL I'M TRYING TO DO IS GET THE BALL ROLLING HERE -- PLEASE POST IF THERE'S ANYTHING NOT TO YOUR LIKING, OR IF YOU HAVE ANY ADDITIONS TO MAKE. -six.

    From reading the Wikipedia entry on the Ming Dynasty, there seems to be some interesting elements in history that we can take advantage of. I'm going to compile some of the more storybook elements together, along with some suggested "character classes".

    I suggest we start at the end of the Yuan dynasty in the year 1352, as we can take advantage of Zhu YuanZhang's rise to power as a plot device.

    The story can be split into 3 distinct parts, with these main plot points:

    I. The end of Yuan dynasty - the rise of Zhu YuanZhang and his rival, Chen Youliang

    II. Open Rebellion - Zhu's Capture of Nanjing, Guangzhou, and finally Beijing

    II. The Mandate of Heaven - The establishment of the Ming Dynasty after the liberation of China

    -----

    Part I :: The End of Yuan Dynasty.

    Cultural Climate:

    This is a time of revolution. Crops are failing, overtaxing and flooding is rampant, and the government is losing control, opening the way for multiple groups of Han Chinese to revolt -- including the mysterious White Lotus Society of Buddhist monks. The Yuan Dynasty banned the White Lotus Society years ago for being a heretic religion, forcing its followers underground. The White Lotus Society has become a rallying symbol for the women and poor of China, as well as the home of the Red Turbans, a political faction within the society.

    Out of the rebel groups, two great powers have emerged: Zhu YuanZhang, the young commander of the Red Turbans, and Chen Youliang, leader of the Dahan rebels and Zhu's chief rival in the south. Popular support among the people is rising for Zhu, who adheres to the White Lotus teachings and forbids his soldiers to pillage. However, Chen's military power is strong, and has proclaimed himself "King of Hans" while basing himself in Jiangzhou.

    In later years, the Red Turbans, under the leadership of Zhu, will send their rebel armies to capture Beijing -- but for now, history is yet undecided and both leaders are amassing power in the south.

    Suggested characters: Red Turban rebel (Zhu ally), Dahan rebel (Chen ally), Mongol soldier, Yuan Dynasty Official (evil)

    Note: These character origins help to advance plot, and while suggested, are not completely necessary. If you feel that a wulin character is better (great example: Broken Sword in "Hero") then by all means, create that character. That being said, I think it's no problem to introduce some kung-fu with these rebels, as this is a wuxia story after all -- I mean, how are you gonna overthrow an emperor without some sweet palm skills? (Or sword skills, realistically...)

    ---

    How's that for a start? I'd like to hear all of your suggestions on whether this type of background is too historically based, and you all would prefer a wulin-centered story instead.

    -six.
