Poll: What story should I be working on while I wait for my muse with Book of the Scourge to return? Vote Now!
Author has written 12 stories for Star Wars, Naruto, Storm Hawks, Warcraft, My Little Pony, and Dark Souls.
On Remembrance Day 2013, I had an idea and thus the reason for the existence for this story. After all, I didn't want to get your hopes up by posting this on one of my already existing stories; that sort of self-advertising is kind of a dick move after all.
The first idea I wished to present to you all is actually a project I've recently thought of and I honestly found the idea intriguing enough to bring it up. The idea is simple: Some members of the Konona 12 get together a play a tabletop RPG (Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 is currently the game I have in mind, but I'm willing to take suggestions. If there are enough I'll post a poll. Hell, if people want I could make up a whole new world if I have to) because it was suggested to them that playing such a game would help them develop their tactics, teamwork and planning skills.
While this alone would be awesome enough to do, there is a twist to how I wished to do this. Each player (Member of the Konoha 12) would be played by a different author with myself as a DM of sorts. Each chapter would be a session of the game, with old players able to drop out if they are too busy in real life to write for it and new players able to join in with little fuss.
(To avoid confusion, the Konona 12 will be called 'Players' and their game characters will be known as 'Characters' from this point on.)
Anyone can ask to be a part of this and can even submit a request for who they want to be (IE, Naruto, Sakura, Sasuke, ect.) However, there is a requirement that everyone wishing to apply for a character must do. They have to write a scene of their player of choice creating their character for the game (For Example: Naruto creating his paladin character) you can make it as long or short as you like, just as long as you stay true to the player you picked.
Since we haven't really picked a game yet, you won't have to go to in-depth with the character your player is making. All they need is a name, a race, a class and an alignment. If you wish to add more detail, that is up to you. I will add points for more… shall we say interesting match ups between player and character if the author can justify why their player would make such a character (Naruto rolling a wizard because being able to throw fireballs is awesome!)
Also note: I'm just saying the Konoha 12 as an example of sorts. While it is possible for other players from outside that group to join in, there are rules:
1. Since the game will be played in Konoha, they have to be welcome there.
2. This story will start sometime before Sasuke went all emo and pissed off to kiss snakes, but after the exams/invasion.
So the sand siblings and just about any leaf shinobi would be able to join in, but missing ninja wouldn't. Also, this will at least start before the time skip. We will see how things go.
A possible alternative version of this idea would be the same as above, only the players of the game would be members of Akatsuki.
Please submit applications by PM. It just makes things easier to track. Suggestions and ideas would be more than welcome in reviews however.
Hope to hear from you all soon.
