Hey, I might get into this, since it's a new one and it's harder to get into ongoing rpgs, but can you give a better description of what we're going to be getting into. I know you wanna keep it pretty general, but I wanna know a little more of what my character might be doing :P

almost anything really, honestly, it's whatever your character will get into, trading, fighting, being a mercenary, brigand, a nobleman, etc.

you are asleep in the southern british town of Cantwaraburh, of the Cantware tribe, you are in a sort of twilight early in the morning, when you awake to a blade rasping out of it's scabbard. you get up to hear footsteps coming up the stairs of your empty, multi-bedded room, the hearth is cold and you feel a chill run up your spine

I position my pillows on my bed, then pull the sheets over them. I then hide out in the dark corner near the doorway, waiting to see who might be making the mistake of ending their life. I control my breathing to remain as silent as possible, and grab my weapon, preparing to get the first strike if necessary.

it's not really a bed with pillows, more like a haystack inside a burlap sack, either way, you do hide in the corner, and he walks into the room, slowly and steadily, staring directly at you, he doesn't seem to notice. he has a shortsword in his hand.

I tackle the man to the ground and grab his shortsword from him. Best not to kill someone who may be there to help me. I then ask who the man is.

Seeing him charge, I decide to attack back, swinging my axe at his knees to cripple him.

I see him charging at me, and decide it's time to fight back. I swing my seaxe into a reverse grip, then slash, aiming for the mans throat. I flip the seaxe back into a regular gripping, aiming for his chest, all the while attempting to parry any swings he throws at me.

his seeming lust just to get your blood is more important to him then defending himself, he gashes your forearm, but you stab him in the neck, he slumps onto the knife, choking on his own blood

I slowly leave the room, after making sure the man is full dead and gathering my necessary belongings. I check each consecutive room carefully, making sure no one else is waiting to strike. After this, I peek outside the building, and try to see outside.
