I've had the idea about me of an RP that I myself could manage, while still appealing to the general RP enjoyments the lots of you seem to fancy. And it's along the lines of Mercenary bands.
I like the idea because it can be set in any era, from ancient and fantasy to medieval to modern and to Sci-Fi. And, it gives people the opportunity to run the massive strategic numbers game thing that absolutely bores me, while still having people playing a reasonably vital role in the RP as single individuals.
I just want to know who else thinks this would be a fun idea; RPing as mercenary bands in some era in some land...

Maybe set it in the 1600's? Pike and Shot? That era has always been interesting for warfare in my opinion.
"Cry, the beloved country, for the unborn child that is the inheritor of our fear. Let him not love the earth too deeply. Let him not laugh too gladly when the water runs through his fingers, nor stand too silent when the setting sun makes red the veld with fire. Let him not be too moved when the birds of his land are singing, nor give too much of his heart to a mountain or a valley. For fear will rob him of all if he gives too much." - 'Cry, the Beloved Country', Alan Paton
