Thorin pulls out his belt knife, makes a small slit on the tip on his index finger and proceeds to sign his name in blood.

I love the idea of having an expendable character. Count me in.

You guys realize that any character can be expendable (killed) if you so choose?  In any story.  You just must be willing to relinquish the character afterwards.

Yes, but I think that these will be the first characters with the sole intent of killing them off.

Aye. All of my characters are by default 'killable', there just usually isn't any particular reason to do so.


That being said, the difference is that for War of the Blood, the plan is that it isn't necessarily up to the consent of the player, like it is in other stories. If someone is absent for instance, they might come back to find their character having been offed.

Precisely. You create most of your characters to develop upon them, join in stories for quite a while, and then die in some sort of spectacular way or whatever. This story will be great for some really well thought out writing.

If I were to join, I'm guessing some of my favorite parts of it will be, every so often, illustrating my own death and starting anew with another poor chap.

Am I right in assuming that if such a story was made, we would put our character's names in bold and control them as if they were npc's?

I'm pretty sure all player characters will be created and controlled just like they are for normal stories.

That was my understanding.

As to the "offing":

Oh yes. If you don't show up for a while and don't leave a note, chances are you consider yourself a redshirt on the front lines. Meaning "extremely vulnerable and liable to get killed" of course.

 I like that. It means people HAVE to stay active and update with their character. Shocked Evil things are afoot! LOL

Just wanted to say I actually really like this idea- really original and delightfully epic.

So count me in, if you get this up and running :)

Yeah, lets get the horse and foot out and have a war. It would be quality and 'active'. I would definitely join up as one of the humans or elves. It would be challenging and intense.

Now I'm not sure, as I'm not involved in this (and please correct me if I'm wrong), but sadly, I don't think much headway has been made in the story planning. So this one might not be happening :(
