I got the idea for this rp while I was watching "Birth of a Nation" in one of my classes, which is the most racist movie ever made. It also happens to be the most important, as it set the mold for all movies made after it, but that's not the point.

Anywho, this rp takes place in the land of Nacirema, in midieval times. Lord Belum rules over the people with a compassionate heart and an iron fist. His word is law. The people of Nacirema have three classes: nobility, peasants, and slaves. The nobles and peasants are almost entirely made up of a group known as the Exalted, while the slaves are known as the Underlings. For the past three centuries, the Exalted have ruled over the Underlings, and no one has thought to question the system, as it has been in place for quite some time.

The social climate is much like it was in the South in the years preceeding the Civil War. The Underlings are looked down upon, thought to be lesser than the Exalted.

Our story begins on the Bremont plantation, where a group of Underlings live a busy but somewhat vacant life. Norah, a slave girl who has worked for the Bremonts most of her life, finds herself wishing for a life more her own, not catering to the whims of the temperamental Lord Bremont and his rude, demanding wife. Norah works primarily in the house, caring for the Bremonts' five children and helping Cook in the kitchen. There had to be more to life than this...


I will be taking over the part of Norah. That leaves the parts of Lord and Lady Bremont, Cook, and various other slaves on the plantation. "outsiders" will be needed as well, to bring the Underlings news from the outside world. If you want any of these parts, or have another idea for a part, please post it here, and we'll get started as soon as we have enough people.

Rado and I sign up.

Are the "outsiders" Exalted or Underlings?

The outsiders are mostly exalted. All the Underlings are slaves. But they could be slaves from another kingdom, I guess.

Come on, people, we need at least a couple more players! And those of you who already volunteered, would you be willing to play multiple characters?

alright, sweet. We need Lord Bremont, maybe his son, and a few more underlings, at the very least.

I'm leaving for college soon. Actually, I think I'll opt out.

I'll take the position of Bremont's son, and perhaps one other character. Just assign me whatever role you need for the second part.

We need more people! I think we need at least four people total before we can start—assuming they all play multiple characters.

I'll be the lady if no other girls join. We need at least one more person, then we can get this party started!
