So, this is an idea I doubt will actually work, but it popped into my head, so I figured I'd toss it out there. A civil was has just ended. [Country] broke away from [Country that is main setting], in one of the bloodiest wars in the country's history. And in it, many noble bloodlines were ended. Which left many a barony without a lord. Which also allowed the crown to reward many of those who performed feats of valor during the war with a noble title. And the rp idea starts there. With a new Baron/Baroness arriving at his/her barony, near the newly established, and rather war-torn border. One player playing the new noble and the other playing the... Barony, I guess, as the first tries to get everything in order.
