I may be crazy...

But I'm considering starting up a fae-based game - either CtD or Dark Ages: Fae - on LJ. The action would be largely player-driven with mutual consent (i.e., you have to have another player's consent if you want to do something with - or to - hir character. No consent, it doesn't happen. Period.), though I may add some GM-driven action if I feel ambitious enough.

Right now, I'm leaning toward DA: Fae, because there's already a couple of LJ CtD games I know of, and I'd rather not steal anyone else's thunder. And I'm already running a tabletop CtD game. I also have the LJ communities and characters set up for DA: Fae.

So, would anyone be interested?

I'm interested but I don't have the book or the money to buy it right now and I'm crazy too and planning out my own LJ game. I'd love to lurk though!

If I could get my hands on DA: Fae, I'd consider it.

CtD with you I'm always game for. *eg*

I know Drive-Thru RPG has it for around $20.00...if you have access to a decent printer, you could even have a paper copy (says the woman who's slowly but surely printing up her PDF of Exalted: The Dragon-Blooded. :)).

Can I lurk on this one for awhile, then maybe I'll get the book and make a character.

I reckon you should give this first inspiration a bit more thought! As you say, there's a lot of CtD out there and very little Dark Age: Fae... despite it being an utterly magical concept. ; )

If the game is chiefly player-driven then you don't need bucketloads of plot hooks and storyline. A really solid, atmospheric setting and a small cast of your own characters to get things started.

The difference with DA:F is that it takes very few fae to make a suitable setting for interaction, as the individual fae can be quite powerful and have broad influence. Why, I expect each character would almost have their own little domain - which I assume the player might have a lot of say in creating and describing.

I can imagine interactions between: a Summer fae who hold guardianship over a mortal village, an Autumn changeling who is the village smith and hated fae meddling with mortal lives, a Winter inanimae who lives in an icy pool below a waterfall in the nearby forest and loves the taste of flesh, and a Spring fae who claims dominion over the forest and wishes the whole area to be turned to spring. There's endless social (and not so sociable!) interaction there, and that's with a bare four characters!

Just some thoughts (as I would quite like to get into a DA:F LJ game, if you did decide to run one!).
