I've been considering what sort of experience I, as a DM, want out of Burning Wheel for a while now. I think it's finally coalesced into something concrete I'm looking for, and I'm looking for a couple of like-minded people to share the vision with me and make a world together.
The world is one where conflicts are taking place on a large scale, and the players, though being individuals, are powerful enough to rise and meet these challenges to change the face of the world itself. It is an era of change and immense conflict, of ideological struggle and national conflict as authoritarian, conservative monarchies and other regimes attempt to preserve an old order from radical new ideas that threaten it. The technology is in-line with that of Burning Wheel's expected setting, but the ideas floating around are a bit more advanced than mere feudalism.
Analogues from popular culture that I'd like to draw on, or perhaps even use as a formal setting depending on what the group wants, include A Song of Ice and Fire, the Witcher franchise, and the Black Company novels. I'm a student of History and love drawing from historical events and analogues as well, such as the Prussia and the German Empire, the French Revolution, and any conflict you can think of relating to these.
The party are powerful, ambitious people in this radical, dangerous world. You are not a faceless footsoldier in the army of Tywin Lannister--You ARE Tywin Lannister. The goals the party take on will not be those that impact a city, but whole nations. Expect to get plenty of use out of the Strategy, Tactics, and Logistics skills, should you take them. Expect betrayal, intrigue, politics, and diplomacy as you pursue your beliefs, whatever they might be. Whether you're a stalwart rock of tradition or bearer of the torch of liberty, the world will be changed directly by your actions as you go after what's important to you and your character.
If you're interested, PM me with what times you can attend. The game will most likely be late-night and last several hours, starting at 9 PM EST. Mature players are preferred, but don't let that discourage you from applying if you're interested. Please post in the game discussions below with the following:
