I have an idea for another game, though I think this one will be a lot looser and a lot less serious.

When I was a kid, I enjoyed Alan Dean Foster's Spellsinger series. Never a favorite, but... Basically, this guy gets pulled into a fantasy world. Kind of like Covenant. Just replace "leper" with "amateur musician," "white gold" with "music" and Mhoram with a wizard turtle. Anyway, ever since these books, I've often imagined what the music I listen to would do if they were instead magical spells.

I'm picturing each player choosing an avatar summoned from another realm to represent a particular faction. The players will compete in various arenas (generic settings like, say, a desert plateau, a swamp, a crowded market, etc.). Duels will consist of posting links to music videos (official or otherwise), the lyrics, and a description of what the 'spell' does. The other player then does the same. And let's say one more round with the turn order reversed. Then all players (and maybe observers) vote on a winner. After all the arenas/nodes are claimed, whoever has the most wins wins the game.

Anybody interested? Thoughts?

I put a poll in Vespers to gauge interest.

Not particularly musically inclined. Very Happy Does make me think of Greg Bear's Songs of Earth and Power though.
