Now, I don't want to make anything of a buzz, because I really don't plan on doing anything about my idea for quite some time (even a year, maybe).

I was thinking of making (or prompting some other driven individual to make it) a story based upon a trade caravan, because:

1. Very organic. Relationships can be had fast, people can naturally come and go as they please, without hurting the plot line (it's a trade caravan, after all), and bandits, suspicious natives, trolls, etc. could be brought into the story merely by taking a look at some entries on the immediate area and letting the creative juices flow.

2. Location, location, location. That is, there can be a lot of them. As long as people are enjoying the story and the posts keep coming in, we can all have fun exploring those many, many areas on the map that haven't been rped at yet.

3. Plot directing. Rather simple (in comparison to other plot lines), because the mods don't need to work towards one little plot line throughout the story. Come to think of it, the whole thing would be more of a series of stories, with one name slapped onto it.

4. Easy to revive. Feeling bored? Move to a new location, meet a band of monsters, or whatever else you can think of. Is the creator (me or whoever else) just not up to the task anymore? Well, there is no grandiose plot line you have to give up to the new chief of the cherokee indians, just tell the new person in charge that it's a trade caravan, just go with it.

Now, I'd like to hear from some of you who have more experience than me (especially you, Altario and Kalina), because I think I might have concocted something of a potion here: The story that never dies (so to speak).

Strangely enough, my friend, I was thinking along a similar line for a story :)

Yes, I think it would do this site a lot of good to go with a more organic kind of story. Rather than have a central plot line that everyone has to work towards, we can just travel from one place to another without having to have a particular reason.

So kind of like a moving tavern thread? Where anyone has a reason to come or go, no big campaigns or battles, but because it moves it can be the perfect story for whoever is playing?

Great idea! I like it.

It would be an awesome beginners' story! And have a lot more reasons for players to come and go than Thirsty Herald, in the middle of a desert, or that other tavern in a dwarven city.
