Default Supernatural RP interest check

Hey all, I wanted to post up a question to all you RPers out there. The two RPs that I am currently running are moving along smoothly and I find myself in a position were I am feeling the need to begin another story. I have always had quite an interest in the role of the Vampire Hunter in lore. The mere human that stands in the face of death, darkness, and despair, standing toe to toe with the most vicious and loathesome beasts that darkness could throw at him. This would be the basis of my story.

Now to you, Heresy RPers, this is the first question that I will pose. Would there be any interest in participating in such a tale? If so would you like to see it set in a medival, archaic steampunk, modern, or futuristic setting? The poll above of course covers these options.

There would be different skillsets/classes, each with their own perks and detriments, and I have ideas for a few special twists that I will talk to people how may be interested in playing something a bit odd.

Any ideas that you have to throw in as far as something you would like to see in such an RP would be welcome as well.

I would say go with Medival setting as theres nothing better than a vampire hunter wearing full plate armour, the wide brimmed hat and a trench/storm coat that fits over his armour while he is armed with a hand crossbow and silver sword.

I myself lean toward medieval or steampunk, but I wanted to see what other opinions there were out there.

I'm going for modern on this one, failing that Steampunk. Both appeal to me.

Futuristic. The idea of plate armour and silver swords is nice but who could say no to jetpacks and laser guns?

Failing that I would go with Medieval

I voted medieval coz that's where i easier get the most vivid images in my head of supernatural beasts.

In the old times people feared the woods, and our characters are the reason. A blood-sucking vampire or a lunatic werewolf is alot more scary if you don't even know what the closest city is called, or even where it is.

It gets a bit less scary and evil (although gets a cool masquerade feel) when everyone just has a GPS and a revolver at hand like in the US.
And vampires with space guns? You might say "blood angels", i say "I don't really like blood angels.".

So i would say Medieval, secondly steampunk since that is almost medieval but with a twist, then modern.

And i personally would vote no for futuristic. But only for supernatural characters.

If the characters are beast hunters a future setting could be really cool. I can imagine the beasts being experiments of some kind.

All in all, it's very much up to who we're supposed to be in the drama.

If i'm a vampire, i'd rather play medieval. Where my name holds the most fear.
If i'm a hunter, also medieval. It's too easy when everyone just got a revolver, or even automatic guns.

So late medieval, so we can get hold of that cool black powder pistol, aw yeah

Well it is obvious that medieval is a favorite, but I am intrigued by the concept of a steampunk setting as well. Thank you all for your input!
