Hear ye, Hear ye! The Grand Emperor, Caelan Maximus Reginald De Raalte the 4th, has passed away in an untimely end, with no heir apparent in sight! His once mighty empire has fallen apart into 8 independent Houses/States! each one of them vying for power, bent on seating themselves upon his throne and reforging the empire in their own image! Who will be the Lord Emperor? and how will he come to achieve it? Will they make alliances with other houses in order to regain the throne? or will they perhaps try through diplomatic means? maybe a commerce war to put themselves in charge? Who knows what the future holds? Wars, Back stabbing and conspiracies for sure.
This is an idea of a (never before attempted) Super Grand Stratagy Role Playing Game (that i basically thought of in the shower). 8 people, each one gets a house/state to run and control, with one ultimate goal - the Empires throne. This is basically a game where its gonna involve and come from mostly the players where you can do and try everything u always wanted in a startagy game. Make alliances with other houses, and then back stab them when it brings you the most advantage. conquer lands, and make pacts. everything you do and all decisions you make will have consequences - not just with other players - but with the NPCs of the world - Raise taxes to fight ur wars, your people might revolt. Shut down trade, and your merchants guilds might have something to say about it. ignore your nobles ? might find yourself deposed. and ofcourse i might throw in some random world events. there will also be NPC factions you can side with for example - The Holy Church and And the Council of Magic. The church might grant you funds, or knights, the Magic council might grant you artefacts or sorcerers to aid you. however they might demand tribute or gor you to do something for them. This is a political/stratage/conspiracy rpg. You are gonna be roleplaying the head of a house, and during the week you can talk and make deals and pacts with other players and in the end send what they want to do to me. there will obviously be a map following troop movements and such all on roll 20. Disclaimer this is pre-pre-pre alpha never done such a thing before game. its not exactly DnD and Not exactly a Board game but a mix of the two. their will be barely any dice rolls, and any they are will be made by me to decide outcomes. this is (supposed to be) a trule interactive and open game where you can attempt to do anything.
if anyone is interested in attempting such an ambitious game with me (and ofcourse part of it will be coming up with it as we go) feel free to reply and let me know
