    I wanna know those who are interesting in a underdark rp, probably set up much like a Drow house...
    I haven't created it yet cause I wanna know if anyone would join...but here is the info

    Name of RP: Fourth House Xorlarrin

    Number of Players wanted: more then 3

    Rules for the RP: Only I can designate who dies and who doesn't, though
    deciet and trickery are encouraged

    Basic overview of what the RP is about: For those of you who know what a drow house is, that's basically what I want to start. For those of you who don't, well, let's see if I can help with this. The basic set up is you have a heirarchy within the same family. (Matron, Patron, High Priestesses, Daughters, sons, Weapon Master, Soldiers, ect). All in the house follow Lolth (the basic drow diety) I have the Basic family laid out (In other words, the Matron and her daughters) but I would welcome anyone to join up with this and I'll make room.

    Within the drow house, all fight for the favor of the matron. It's by her will alone that you are alive. She designates missions. On top of that, In Menzoberranzan (city of dark elves), there are other "houses" (family groups like then one I'm trying to create). We will also be fighting and going up against them as well to further our place in the city and in Lolth's eyes. The more power the better. Clerics (priestesses), Sorcerers, mages, wizards, and general fighters will be needed. All preferable drow, but I can work just about anyone in. And it doesn't have to be a humanoid race either. Fey'ri (half demon) and such are also welcomed.

    If anyone wants additional information regarding this thread, pm me and we can get to it. I hope this sounds appealing and I can generate support for this. I've done one house like this before and it was a hit.

    Would you be creating this as an RPG or a Kingdom? Sounds pretty interesting either way. :)

    It will probably be a kingdom set up, because I'm going to add the NPC "houses" we will be fighting up against.

    I already have a drow character created so I ill try and paly a part in this...I'm not very good at keeping to RPG's so maybe a small part is good.

    Have you by any chance played Baldur's Gate 2?

    erm...sure I'll pm you my character :O

    I suppose I can give you a small part if you wish. Now, all I have to do is actually set it up.

    Power? *rubs hands* muahaha....okay, i'll make up a char and send it to you in the next day or two. I won't be able to do much for history etc, as I don't knw where this will tak eplace or in what families, or where our House lies in the ranks....you get my drift. I'll do a general bio, like appearance, temperament, and after you post more info, i'll expand on the chara.

    *laughs* The house is ranked 4th in the city (so it's known as Fourth House Xorlarrin) and the Matron is the Fourth matron. Makes sense, no? *laughs* There are like....50 some houses though. And all want to gain more power. So not only will we have to gaurd from behind...but from the first three houses as well.

    I think I'll have everyone starting off low in the family just to ensure that you will participate...and then go up in rank the more you spend time plotting *laughs*
