Blue and Grey
The Story of a Union-occupied Conferedate Town

Before I put too much effort into the aesthetics and details of this RP I just wondered if there was even any interested in the idea! Taking inspiration from the PBS show Mercy Street, we'll find a handful of characters thrust together by circumstance. Most of the action will take place in a Union hospital and a throughout this Union-occupied town in the South. Confederates and Union Soldiers, slaves and free African Americans, the rich and the poor. All walks of life. The drama would be stirred by the opposing views of doctors, nurses, townsfolk, business owners, etc. For example, an abolitionist doctor might refuse to perform surgery on a Confederate Soldier. Or perhaps a wealthy plantation owner refuses medical attention from Union doctors. Union officers might force a Confederate home to host a social event for the Union soldiers.

Social issues also arose at the time. Many southern homes served as bases for the union soldiers while the owners were still present. Young Confederate daughters falling for Union soldiers, brothers being swayed to the other side. Rebels betraying each other by signing allegiance to the Union. Then, of course, there is the issue of identity at the time. Someone of the Confederate Army could be disguised as someone else. Deceit, deception, action, romance, and more! Oh my!

There are several nuanced issues of the time that could sew together an exciting and complex roleplay. With the right writers, I think it could evolve into something really amazing!

Looking for more literal writers, a couple of paragraphs with details would do. Most importantly, people who create and unafraid to progress the story. Let me know what ya'll think, and whether or not you might be interested!

I would totally be interested in something like this. I'm actually kind of disappointed not to see more interest in it. Either way hit me up if you decide to move forward or come up with any other historical rp. I may be new here but I'm capable and a fast learner.
