I am looking for up to 4 players to fill positions in a possibly unique game. Each player starts as a lord ruling over a small realm wherein they have complete control... Up to a point.
The point being how prepared you are to maintain and exercise that control. With brigands, goblins, undead, rampaging beasts, other lords and even those ridiculous elves getting in the way.

A lot of the campaign is still in production and will probably continue being like that all the way through to the end what with it being homebrewed to a large degree.

The game takes place across turns, which decide how many actions you will be able to carry out, though due to the nature of the game being more RP based you will only notice turns by way of the vents happening in game, rather than a Total War game turn system.

What I expect from players;
Frequent posting.
Attention to important detail.
Lack of really stupid choices.

What can be expected from me;
Frequent posting and updates.
A large amount of flexibility when it comes to less immutable facets of the game.
A random approach to everything.
And so much more.

I have probably messed up a large amount of this ad, because I have never made one before so any questions or criticisms are welcome if not appreciated.

Game Description:

Welcome, lords all to the land of your birthright, the 7 Realms of the west. Know ye that you have come into your own at a most auspicious time, the king doth grow weary of the ineptitude of the lords of his realm and now drives them to survive on their own merit rather than imperial favour. This has caused many of the less astute lords to harbour certain resentments towards the king, forced to defend their realms and provide the king with their services rather than fritter away their time with idle pleasantries but with the might of his army still loyal the king reigns supreme and will brook no dissent.

To take command of a realm now is to walk a fine edge between death and glory as each lord vies to either prove himself worthy above all others or discredit those around him, some few seek to work together in common interest to better their lands and themselves, yet others seek to tear down and take from their neighbors what little they have to ensure their own survival against yet more powerful foes.

Will you be a saviour or a sinner? A lord of justice or tyranny? Only time will tell.

The difference between an Ultimate Weapon and a Self Destruct Device can be very slim.

Are the lord classes still being homebrewed, out of curiosity?

No I suck at homebrewing classes.

Everything else though is well within my capability, usually.

Alright, then. I was just starting to get my hopes back up when I saw them mentioned in the ad...

This is a silly question, since you've already got a map... I'm a fan of the Patrick O'brien novels (that the movie Master and Commander was based on) and in them ships are described as being floating city. They have lots of people, each with their own jobs, places they live, and hierachy and structure analogous to a city.

Would you be interested in an application where most of the towns represented ships, instead of actual towns? So, like, there would be one actual coastal village, one big ship of the line, then some smaller functional ships, making something like a pirate nation.

That... will take some thinking...

Of course you could just take a coastal realm and have all your settlements on the sea, maybe a single port village and say the rest of the realm is mostly wilderness...

One of the in game crunches is the players own choice of settlement (capital, towns and villages) locations so its a possibility.

And unless I fail I deem it shall be so.

I am SOOOO in. I can imagine it now. An "assassin"(not the class, as I don't like being evil) lord with an "assassin" royal guard. I REALLY LIKE this concept. Love to work on an assassin like lord class. I really want to specialize in wielding multiple hidden blades. I WANT to take the shadow dancer PrC later. Is that okay?

If it can be explained to me without me realising how potentially game breaking it is then sure.
