Blended Medieval and Modern Roleplay

Topic Tags:

Thinking about starting a roleplay, but don't have the idea completely finished? Post it here, not in the main OOC forum!
I'm not so sure how to go about creating my own roleplay, So I'll just start with the general Idea.

It's a medieval type setting, villages and towns and kingdoms, but you can use guns, missiles, and such things as we have today. NO FUTURE TECHNOLOGY. This isn't Star Wars.

Characters allowed are Wizard/Mage/Alchemist/Magic people, Humans, Modified Humans, Nekok or other animal people, and Puppets brought to life by said magic people.

You'll want to flesh this out more. For example, are only modern -weapons- allowed, or is there medicine, computers, and transportantion? Are the weapons only ones that the average person could hold, or are there nukes and tanks? Whats the history of the world and why do certain races to what they do? Whats the plot? Explain the races more, and their part in the world, the major geographical features, and the kingdoms. Why would adventureres choose to use a sword or bow and arrow instead of modern weapons, and what has stopped tyrants from taking over using them?

This is exactly why I need help. Some creative input would be lovely.

Umm I think transportation and medicine is probably acceptable. Maybe computers too. They could just be less available than they are today. But as for the rest, I'm going to start typing, and I will post, in detail, answers to your questions.

The setting takes place in the small country of Arana, on the continent of Gurola. Sharing the continent (that's roughly three fourths the size of our australia) with a rival country called Inostesia to the east. War has plagued the two warring nations for centuries, for various reasons such as economy, raiding, religious differences, and racism. Recently the King of Arana, King Jerome the White, signed a piece treaty with the Empire of Inostesia.

Geographically consistent throughout almost the entire country, consisting of rich woods plentiful in plants and animals, but liking in minerals and ore. Arana lacks the resources to mass produce their more advanced technology because of the environment. They cannot create the factories they need, and thus The advanced technology they have is limited in it's dispersion. Poorer towns and villages are made entirely from wood, while the great cities of steel and stone rise above the clouds. Many poor settlements rely on age old technology to live their daily lives. The only way to acquire what the Aranians need is through trade with Inostese immigrants, who bring over goods from their homeland.

The various races of Gurola are widespread, with the mystical animal people of the forests of the west, the Inostesians, with their dark skin and white hair, the average villager, and the strange wizards of the northern plains.


In the beginning, it is the King's daughters 16th birthday, and the one year anniversary of the signing Inostesian Treaty. The king is holding a feast for members of each village and town for the entire country. As a courtesy for the wonderful things they'd done for the town, the Malato Construction Crew was given the invitations to the feast. Rio Erequin, and Iseah and Moss Rikitao are camped outside of the castle walls, preparing for the grand feast.

If I missed anything please tell me. Creative input appreciated.

You are missing a character profile sheet :)
You know, name, age, history and all that. I could do it myself but i don't know what you actually want and I'm lazy :) If you make one of those then i'll fill it out and request to join. That is, if you want me. :)
