    OPEN SIGNUPS Looking for Strangers

    Hello! Thank you for reading my introduction to this rather ambitious project of mine. In full disclosure, this roleplay idea is inspired by and draws a lot from the manga Drifters by Kohta Hirano, the same mind behind Hellsing.

    The Dark Depths (Subterranean Medieval RP)

    Alright, so this is a bit out of my normal RP zones. First of which, I've got most of the general lore down to pat. It's not something I do, and it's not something a lot of people enjoy. Based on that fact, I'm dumping it right in front of this form so people can see it, absorb this...

    Okay so I have a real craving for a medieval arranged marriage RP. My main idea is that the two characters come from completely different worlds.
