Hermit Posted January 6, 2020 Report Share Posted January 6, 2020 Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Thou art cordially invited to the Cast Your Fantasy Kingdom Superdraft! With each passing day of ye olde draft, ye shall pick what thespian (Actor/actress) alive or dead you would cast into each role of import in thy high fantasy kingdom. Doest though Wish John Candy as an Evil Queen? Sooth, save another beat thy time it shall be so. Doest thou wish Angela Lansbury as thy high priestess of the land? Done, and in whaterr age ye wish. It is up to ye, for the most part, whether they play their parts as heroic and good, or with such base knavery to shame their line for generations! Tyrants and Beloved Lords, Black Knights and Shining ones, Goodly Wizards and Foul Witches! And perchance, some of ye shall dabble exclusively in gray Morality? You make me sad. Carry on anyway! OH, once an actor or pick is made, it's off for everyone else. It doesn't matter if one of you wants Steve Guttenberg as your wizard, and another wants him as a high priest... whoever picked him first gets him sole rights to him for this draft. In case it needs be said, this is not Modern Fantasy (sometimes called Urban Fantasy) so keep it Medieval..ish or at least stop at the Renaissance Sovereign: This is going to be your ruler, the default is King, but if you prefer another title of aristocracy , even one from another culture, sure. Nothing too modern though. There will be no C.E.O of Tyrannia. Said Sovereign can be a Queen or the like as well, of course, in both history and fiction, women can be just as tyrannical or beloved rulers as the fellows. Consort: Whether married to your ruler or merely a lover, the Consort should probably at least have influence, and in some cases might have a true partnership in rule! Be Sure to stress which as it certain shapes your kingdom. Designated Heir: Usually heir by blood relation, but that's not a requirement. This lad or lass is expected to take over when the ruler passes on. if he or she IS blood kin, you might want to make sure actors have a family resemblance Greatest Warrior in all the Land: Often reserved for a shining knight, your greatest warrior might be a wandering barbarian, a gladiator of an arena, or even a retired veteran turned farmer. Good, evil, he's the guy girl with the weapon... and the badassery skill to use it well Wizard: You need at least one wizard, witch, sorcerer, etc. Be he an adviser to your ruler, or a threat to the land, that's up to you. High Priest/Priestess of the Major region In your kingdom: Pick a fictional faith/religion from a novel, comic book, movie etc... and cast an actor to play the high priest/priestess of it! Are they an evil cult leader? A kindly matriarch of a healing deity? A political force fit to rival the rulers? You decide- BONUS- you may, if you wish, pick a deity from one of our world creation superdrafts to be your biggest state religion! Monster That Threatens the Entire Kingdom: Dragon! or Giant, or Kraken... every fantasy kingdom needs a monster that threatens it! Obviously, casting for this is likely going to be more voice acting ... though if you want W.C. Fields in a Dragan costume more power to you! OUR HERO!- Oh this one is wide open. Farmboy with a destiny? Lovable rogue with a heart of gold? Girl named Jackie with a gift for giant slaying? Go for it. Pick your actor or actress and then tell us about the character they're going to play. Not all heroes are nice mind you, or even competent. Maybe 'protagonist' is the better term IF you prefer your hero be one of the already picked roles, this becomes "Our Sidekick" THEME MUSIC: Pick a song, or a composer (Alive or dead) and it's attached to your movie. A VILLAIN: Notice, I say 'a' villain, not the Villain. After all, you might already have the warrior as the bad guy, or the ruler him/herself, or whatever... so this spot might be a minion, a partner, or even a hidden superior to any other bad guy you wants OR they could be THE Villain in a land full of non villains. Stealing from another Set/Studio: We're casting a fantasy movie right? that ain't cheap, and we want to interest fanboys. So, feel free to use any prop from any High Fantasy movie, TV show, or Novel. Magic swords, rings, and even whole sets ("It's only a model"). Just for the record, not people. Obligatory Fantasy race: Your elves are different, sure they are... but you better name the setting you're basing your elves, dwarves, halflings, or whatever on. You get to pick one non human humanoid fantasy race to walk along side man (or fight them etc) ...they can be rare or common. This is one area where you As with the gods, you may pick a race from a previous world creation superdraft if you want Optional Character: For those roles you feel are neglected, this is wide open. Need a merchant? A milkmaid? Cast away. We start picking on JANUARY 7, 2020, Noon EST US (A Tuesday) Buying you time to ask questions etc. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
