[ERROR] No.53867735 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

A bizzare setting where being a Knight is like being a cartoon Luchadore. You are more than a mortal. You're either a superhero or a supervillain.
Every knight has a theme and a helmet that become his entire being. He never takes his helmet off, no matter what. The moment he does, It's over. He stops being a knight forever.
There is a knight academy and shit. There are knight powers, related to the knight's theme.

And there's the Mask Knight. An evil, evil Knight with his helmet looking like a venecian mask. He is able to put a replica helmet of other knights and assume their identity.
And every time we are close to catching that motherfucker, he dramatically throws his fake helmet away and we are somehow obligated to shout "MASK KNIGHT! RAAAH!" every single goddamn time.

Talk to me about weird habits and other dumb stuff your groups do

I did a High Fantasy WWE / Luchadore game way back in the day, it was retarded as fuck but it was awesome. Every fight was settled in the ring, the PCs and major NPCs all had signature moves. The campaign ended with R'lyeh rising from the depths in the shape of a giant arena, and the PCs having a tag team match against the Great Old Ones for the fate of the planet.
Like I said, it was retarded.

I've been thinking of running a knightly game. Muh setting is basically not!Iceland in the immediate aftermath of not!Rome's withdrawal. The PCs are basically wandering monks who keep the spirits of the indigenous religion happy.

I've been mulling over a "what if" spinoff some 300 years in the future wherein the PCs are not!Roman knights questing across the land to subdue the native spirituality as it is slowly supplanted by that of not!Rome, probably culminating in the murder of the old gods and the implanting of the new.

Knightly idea or no?

The modern professional athlete more then stacks up against a knight physically. They'd still probably lose unless they were like a professional swordsman or something but they'd crush them in physical competitions.

Knights meanwhile are working on a much less advanced health and fitness system.

So would the world be divided into a bunch of Realms?

And I do mean capital-R Realms there, because the borders of these realms are metaphysically significant and the territory could almost be considered themed. From the individual Realm's health and glory flows power into the Crown and its, hopefully rightful and just, bearer. With a sort of relationship between the two where the king is influenced by the realm but the realm is also influenced by the king. Thanks to this, usurping a throne is difficult beyond the mundane political struggle involved, so most would-be rulers opt to nab a scion of royalty and bring them around to their way of thinking or otherwise use them to get power.

(One of?) the way(s?) to become a Knight is to swear an Oath to that Realm's ruler. A bit of power comes careening from the land, focused through the ruler, and BAM! A true knight, complete with power. Comes with a host of responsibilities, privileges, restrictions, and perks depending on the Realm.

Maybe you'd be the squires - protecting your Knight from underhanded attempts to steal your Knight's helmet, finding out dirt on his opponents so they'll be discredited and their chivalric powers will be weakened, trying to find out the secret designs of Mask Knight before he can trick your Knight into doing something dishonorable.
