Default Nes

All right, here's a chance to vote on one of two of these NES ideas. I've been thinking, and there's never been an Iditarod or an Oregon Trail NES. I think both of those would be fun, at least for awhile. I mean, yes there's a Western NES, but that's after or during the Oregon Trail era, and it doesn't really take place on or around the Oregon trail by my perspectives. It could, I know you could argue that. So, vote. Tell me your opinions. I think that with the Iditarod one, you could also be a wolf, or a sled dog. Oregon one you could be a Native, either alone or with a band, or the Trail leader person as well as the people migrating. I forgot their offical term, but I know there's one.

Here's the general rules:
~ No excessive fighting
~ No excessive killing(i.e. bloodbath, especially with the Oregon Trail NES)
That's about it.

Redwall already has a NES and Warriors has been recreated twice. These are new-ish ideas.

A good series, but not alot of people know about it.

We should do an nes thats just plain stupid. It's supposed to be stupid. You know, with extremely cliche plots and idiotic characters.

Hmm, I've read Ranger's Apprentice and it would make a pretty cool NES, but if no one has read it... The Oregon Trail one sounds really cool... I would join! Hey, has anyone made a Salem Witch trial NES? Like with people, whether they are or aren't real witches, being hunted down... Hmm. That might be interesting...
