I finally finished the game Dishonored, and one thing I've been entranced by is what a great job they've done of really building a setting, but so little of it is explored. All of the game takes place in one city on one island. To that end, I've been tossing around ideas for various RPs that would take place in that setting, but wouldn't really have to do with the main storyline. Hell, they may not even be on the island of Gristol at all. Some ideas I've had:
-A rather ordinary RP situation on one of the other islands: Serkonos, Tyvia, or Morley (Or Italy/Greece, Russia/Scandinavia, Ireland, respectively)
-Life aboard a whaling ship(Or a trade ship)
-An insurrection on Morley
-RP set during the Serkonan summer in the city of Karnaca(Think classy parties, good weather, romance, intrigue. That sort of thing)
-An RP set during the "Fugue Feast", a period of moral anarchy and debauchery, when any sense of moral code is suspended until the end of the feast.
-Life in the country-side of Gristol, the island where the Capital city is located, while the shit is still hitting the fan. (Trying to survive and cope through harsh conditions)
-An expedition to the Pandyssian continent(An uninhabited continent full of ruins and dangerous animals).
Also, if you have any idea yourself, including specific variants of these, please speak up about them.
