  1. So I had an idea floating around in my head during these early hours and I figured I could see if anyone was interested in the plot. So here goes my short summary at 4am

    Now it's set in modern times but tweaked a bit so that laws, countries, and ect are all made up or altered

    You RP as a single man in his late 20s who is having a very bad week. It started with the slew of mistakes at work that end in you losing your job... The bills are all piling up on top of college loans during this down period of looking for new work only to find out your old boss is sabotaging you when contacted by prospective employers. Seeing as your boss is like the kingpin in your career field everyone takes his word for it that you're a terrible employee not worthy of anyone's time. So you have to find a way around this or start a minimum wage entry level position despite your college degree until someone decided to give you a chance

    To make things more complicated you are contacted by an attorney who informs you that your ex girlfriend from 10 years back has just passed of brain cancer that was caught too late to correct it. She left behind a 9 year old daughter which is now officially your legal responsibility as you are the biological father and there are no living relatives to take the children in her family. She also left behind twins of 4 years old, a boy and a girl who are not yours biologically yet the father and his relatives are deceased and all as well so the responsibility falls to you to decide their fate. To live with you with you as their caretaker or to be executed... Orphanages are not a thing in this world and the creation of an institute like that is illegal. Children without caretakers are executed to prevent a life on the streets leading to drug use and crime.

    Thus under a series of unfortunate events that are incredibly convenient in the most inconvenient way, you undertake the role of father to at least one child during the hardest point in your life. Your objective is to survive, thrive, and raise your child as best you can through all the craziness of life. (And yeah it will get crazy in this oddly cruel world)

    The main character could also be a female but it would have to be changed to where she's the aunt and the father and mother of the children pass leaving you the only living relative to take the three children :birthday:

    So any interest or is it too depressing or something for anyone to be interested?
  2. Can I just say that I can see this as a cool game. A sad but cool game.
    I see this role play being too mature for me, but it really is awesome.

  3. Ah, that's a shame about it being too mature for you. However your words give me hope that perhaps others will take an interest in it
