OK, so I've had an idea for an rp that I have tried a couple times but never got quite what I was looking for, but I made some tweaks to it just recently, and I think it will really help me get what I am looking for. The idea is loosely inspired by the Assassin's Creed games, though only in a basic sort of way. Its not the same universe, nor is it the same characters.
Anyways, the setting is the American colonies in May 1775 about a month after shots were fired at Lexington and Concord. The colonies and England are at war, but the English generals want this ended without having to begin a full scale conflict. So they contact a man that can help them with this problem. That man is Fredric Abbey, a man known among the underworld as the best contract killer on either side of the Atlantic.
So the British officials approach him and make an arrangement with him. A wealthy backer of the revolution named Winston Breckenridge intends to host a lavish masquerade at his estate outside Boston the following week. Fredric is to infiltrate the soiree, and kill the man's family, but not him. They hoped to use this to force him to withdraw his financial backing of the revolution and possibly provide information on the revolutionaries plans.
Despite his current residence in Boston, Fredric has no loyalty to his colony or its ambitions of freedom, and so accepts. After preparing a facsimile of an invitation, he waited for the night of the party, and upon its arrival, infiltrated the manor. His first target is Breckenridge's daughter, a lovely young woman. He finds her off on her own and prepares to begin his work, but is interrupted by British forces attacking the manor. Having changed their minds, the generals who hired Fredric, decide he is a unnecessary loose end and attempt to kill him in the ensuing bedlam. He escapes however, and takes the young Miss Breckenridge with him. Thus begins their unexpected life together in Fredric's lair as he seeks to take his vengeance on those who wronged him. Along the way, the two will have to learn to trust each other, depend on each other, and maybe become more than just kidnapper and kidnapped.
So yeah, that's the intro in a nutshell. Sorry if its a bit wordy, but I wanted to go ahead and set up the basic premise. The rp would start with Fredric arriving at the masquerade ball, and would proceed from there.While what I have explained so far is kinda set in stone, I'm flexible on other details. Miss Breckenridge can be any kind of personality you want. She can be shy and demure, rebellious and tomboyish, or anything in-between. Fredric will be a very business-like character, no nonsense and ruthless when necessary. However, he is able to sympathize with his captive somewhat, even if he does see her as little more than a bother at first. He will start off very cold and gruff, but will slowly warm up to her as the plot progresses.
My intro post will be somewhere around 4-5 paragraphs, and anywhere between 1-3 after that, as needed. That's about all I can think of to mention. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, just comment here or Message me and we can work everything out and get started. I hope to hear something soon!
