WHAT IS BARBERMONGER?

BARBERMONGER is a site designed to help roleplayers find other roleplayers, specifically one-on-one roleplayers, as opposed to larger roleplay games. Functioning like a pinboard, BARBERMONGER allows users to create advertisements, bump advertisements, and respond to other advertisements, without requiring them to register an account. However, registering an account will allow you to edit your posts, find your own topics, and use the private messaging system.

I'm looking for 1-2 partners to play with long-term. I'll consider joining boards with new partners if you have a particularly enticing plot. I have a very broad range of interests, so if I don't explicitly list something as a no-go then please feel free to ask me about it!

I'm particularly in the mood for science fantasy, flintlock fantasy, and noir plots.

I'm interested in exploring the below plot ideas, but if they're not your thing I'm happy to hear what you'd like to do.

- - - - - - - - - -


Dorwode (witchhunters in the 19th C)
Tucked at the base of the western reach is the Dorwode, the last surviving school of witch hunters in Vont. There, initiates train to dispatch fiends. The final rite of passage in any hunter’s training is to successfully complete a contract with a peer (chosen on their behalf) and to return with the client’s seal, a confirmation of the task's completion. What at first appeared to be a rout exercise from their lessons twisted into a strange mystery with a foe of far greater strength than either of them anticipated.

Labyrinth (myth + cyberpunk)
In the city of Omega, Theseus is a disgraced ex-cop turned private investigator. When a missing persons case related to his discharge from the police force drops into his lap, he can’t help but pull the thread. Following the lead brings him to Labyrinth, an illegal VR MMORPG on the ‘net. The name of the game: claim your heart’s desire -- if you can -- at the center of the maze. Ariadne is a streetwise ‘dame’ running from the underworld’s self-throned king. He sees an opportunity for escape in Theseus and agrees to guide him through Omega, its shadows, and Labyrinth.

Let’s Build a World Together
Using The Quiet Year or Microscope via Roll20 and/or Discord, we could build the framework for an entirely new world and then figure out a cool plot to write within it.

More details for these plots are here.

I'm particularly in the mood for space fantasy, noir, and occult-themed plots.

Beasts of the Wilds (witchhunters in the 19th C)
Based in Vont’s heart are the Watchmen, monster hunters trained to dispatch fiends -- for a price. The final rite of passage in any watchman's training is to successfully complete a contract with a peer (chosen on their behalf) and to return with the client’s seal, a confirmation of the task's completion. What at first appeared to be a rout exercise from their lessons twisted into a strange mystery with a foe of far greater strength than either of them anticipated.

Ariadne is a streetwise ‘dame’ running from the underworld’s self-throned king. He sees an opportunity for escape in Theseus and agrees to guide him through Omega, its shadows, and Labyrinth.

Deux ex Machina (Pacific Rim x Merlin/Arthurian Myth)
The two-planet kingdom of Camelot, located in the Iao system, fended off the matzevot, mammoth alien aggressors, for sixty consecutive years. It seemed that humanity was winning the war against them; the matzevot’s numbers and size decreased each year and their damage was mitigated through defensive measures, lowering the monsters’ death tolls from millions to a few hundred, at most.

When a lone matseva showed on the command center’s radar, Commander Uther Pendragon volunteered to neutralize the threat alongside his drift partner, protege, and son, Knight Commander Arthur Pendragon, in the Vesta Nu. The matseva, a scout, lead another of unfathomable power far into the kingdom’s boundaries, but a supporting squadron couldn’t save the unaware Vesta Nu. The mech was decimated and Knight Commander Arthur Pendragon was presumed dead after partial wreckage containing his father’s corpse was recovered. Whilst Arthur recovered aboard a druidic pirate ship, a pretender usurped his throne. When he woke, he learned of his kingdom’s state and of its future from his savior, the seer known as Merlin.

More details for these plots are here.

I currently have three plot ideas I'm interested in exploring, but if they're not your thing I'm happy to hear what you'd like to do.

The Academy of Space and Time (inspired by Doctor Who)
At the Academy of Space and Time, cadets study to become temporal agents. Most are simply historians that return to the past to document history as it truly was. However, chosen applicants may also train to become part of an elite task force that pursues cross-dimensional criminals and right the wrongs enacted by them.

I'm looking for 2-3 partners to play with long-term. I'll consider joining boards with new partners if you have a particularly enticing plot. I have a very broad range of interests, so if I don't explicitly list something as a no-go then please feel free to ask me about it!

Right now, I'm really interested in the idea of collaborative worldbuilding. I'd be overjoyed if someone was interested in building a world around compelling characters as well. I have a rough sketch below to form the basis of such an endeavor if you're interested, otherwise check out the link above!

Beasts of the Western Reach (witchhunter x witchhunter)
In the world of Nahruv, the Watchmen are an organization of hunters trained to dispatch supernatural entities. The final rite of passage in any watchman's training is to successfully complete a contract with a peer (chosen on their behalf) and to return with the client’s seal, a confirmation of the task's completion. What at first appeared to be a rout exercise from their lessons twisted into a strange mystery with a foe of far greater strength than either of them anticipated.

All the details of the introductory plot above are flexible; this is meant more so as a starting point for a collaborative worldbuilding project in which we can weave an interesting setting, an elaborate cast, and then go crazy!

The closest descriptors for the desired atmosphere would be: mythpunk gothic set in a diverse magitek* or medievalesque fantasy world. Basically, refer to the tone and mythology of The Witcher series and combine that with the expansive lands and inclusive populations of Dragon Age and you have what I’m looking for. For further inspiration, I point to Soap & Skin and James Jean! If you're more interested in going in a different direction, then I'm also happy to hear what you have in mind!

I have multiple character ideas for this setting, one of which is a dreamy grifter with a magical or spiritual link that allows him to sense the supernatural.

* I would be totally cool with turning this idea into a spacefaring adventure as well, but I prefer soft science fiction, so there would be still be squishy magic involved.

I've been playing on a lot of group boards, but I miss 1x1 RPs and the freedom that comes with them. I would like to find 2-3 partners to play with long-term. I'll consider joining boards with new partners if you have a particularly enticing plot.
