[OOC] Idea of Chi and the Four Kingdoms (OOC)

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Jaybt9 on Thu Nov 25, 2010 8:00 pm

I think the focus is more on the characters. Even though they have Chinese names, the highlight should be the nicknames they get. For example, the Wu Tang Clan had members like "Method Man", "RZA", "Ol' Dirty Bastard", "Ghostface Killah", etc.

Do they fight? Well, they all do in different fighting/weapon styles (They have to be Chinese by the way). Roleplayers can even create their own style, and they can also have diverse ones (fighting in a wheelbarrow, fighting with a pipa, fighting with a cane, etc.)

Here are my examples of films/fight scenes just to give roleplayers a feel of it.

Dirty Ho (Gordon Liu and Kara Hui vs. Wong Yu)

Martial Club (Gordon Liu vs. Wang Lung Wei)

8 Diagram Pole Fighter (Kara Hui Spotlight)

Long Road To Gallantry (Kara Hui vs Rosamund Kwan)

Long Road To Gallantry (Rosamund Kwan vs. Fighters)

13 Cold Blooded Eagles

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (Michelle Yeoh vs. Zhang Ziyi

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (Cheng Pei-Pei vs. Three others and later Chow Yun Fat)

Iron Monkey (Jean Wang and Angie Tsang (the boy) vs. Shaolin Monks and Lee Fai (the hooded woman)

Once Upon a Time in China (Jet Li vs. Donnie Yen)[/quote]

As a great fan of Wu Xia movies I would like to add a few links to this collection, though they might not all be fitting into the time we play.
I would also use this post to write down some more details about the Ning Empire, if you would allow me. I would expand it as the time goes on. Another question I want to ask, what about "magic". By magic I didn't mean casting fireballs etc., but rather those of sages seen in old, or even some new, Chinese movies. The first link, or other scenes of that movie, are a nice example. What I mean are the talents contributed to Zhuge Liang in the Dynasty Warriors/ROTK series, or those of Woman in Kung Fu Hustle.

The Forbidden Kingdom (Jet LI vs. Collin Chou)
- A great duel in my opinion, the magic adds some nice flair to it

Kung Fu Hustle (Stephen Chow vs. Axe Gangsters and later Siu-Lung Leung)
- A rather comical advance to that genre, though still great. Foot stomp and croak style.

Hero (Jet Li vs. Donnie Yen)
- Another great fight between those two

About the Ning:

As far as magic goes, I wasn't really intending on the kind of magic that Forbidden Kingdom has. Hero definitely. Here are other examples.

Hero (Maggie Cheung vs. Zhang Ziyi)

Hero (Jet Li vs. Tony Leung)
