Long-Term Project: A Historical Writer's League looking for co-founders

Hello OOTP friends,

A small team of passionate writers and OOTPers have launched a journey toward generating a historical league, rising from the fabricated collapse of the National League in 1890.

We have a detailed concept draft that you can review here. This is a serious, long-term labor of love looking for enthusiastic writers to create and shape our league.

I am looking for more members of the Founding Committee to help guide and draft this long-term endeavor--we have 8 people contributing and I'd like to add another 3-5.

This is not a casual league design, and will take a lot of love, sweat, patience, and collaboration to draw into reality. Below is the introduction to the concept draft:

League Mission Statement: To provide an immersive outlet in a historical setting for creative GMs looking to build a collaborative baseball history through the ages.

League Philosophy: This is an immersive writing league with a focus on lore, tradition, collaboration, and storylines. The spirit of this league is imaginative and player-friendly, but also highly traditional and competitive. This league expects high levels of consideration and respect from its GMs--both for the fellow players and the rules/bylaws of the league. Likewise, the league expects active participation from its members, both in running their teams and engaging the community. This is a collaborative effort to generate an alternate baseball history, one story at a time.

League Tenets

GMs will be highly screened and vetted to ensure the proper fit for the dynamic of the league.

GMs and Writers will be given maximum freedom within the lateral limits of the League Constitution and historical committee to shape and form the narrative of the league as they choose.

A particularly high level of professionalism and respect is expected from all members of the league.

Changes to the League will be handled in-game, as a storyline, with GMs and the Board voting.

The Board and Commissioner will insert “Storyline” events each season to add immersion/writing opportunities--and as a vehicle to generate changes.


We are currently in Phase I.C of the concept drafting. I'm looking for writers, history lovers, new and experienced players alike, and passionate worldbuilders to join our slack channel and help guide this league to fruition.

Feel free to join our slack here, or shoot me a PM for more info.

I look forward to creating with you!
