Introduction

Image
Image
Image
We are back in Ancient times. Empires vied for power, support, and longevity. Battles blaze as leaders across the world take up arms to expand their nations into the territories of their neighbors. Where does your sword lie in this unforgiving world? These are new Kingdoms and territories. Battles can be started, hearts can be broken, Kingdoms may fall. Go Crazy! Create a kingdom, a royal family, a knighthood, merchants etc.

Image
~ Feel Free to create a kingdom in a space on the map that lacks a current kingdom or join one of the already started countries. Please use the original map as a reference.

~ You have free design on your characters and they are entirely up to you, you may be a monarch of a country ruling from a throne room, a member of the nobility, a slave, a pirate, a merchant or even a rogue.

~ Any Character can be made, be creative and keep in mind of the time period. These are medieval (ancient) times so no modern technology and automatic weapons.

~ Feel free to add some supernatural or magic. Oracles, gypsies, etc. It makes things interesting.

~ You can be up to as many characters as you want. Just make sure that you can handle all of them.

**Take Care to check the OOC to make sure that the land you want, hasn't already been taken.

Toggle Rules

Image
Image
1. God-modding is unacceptable, if you do so your characters will be flogged, then keelhauled...nasty business that is....

2. Anime pictures will not be accepted. Real images only! I don't want to hear how you don't like using real people, well, if you don't, then IDGAF, this ain't the place for you, kay?

3. Sex scenes are to be expected given this type of story but anything graphic needs to go to PM if you feel so inclined.

4. No character limit, so no need to reserve characters. However, you will need to reserve the land you want to claim, if you would like an already claimed spot,...Invade, war wage, if you can xD

5. Although there is no character limit it is advised that you do not to make more characters than you can handle. If at some point you become overwhelmed we could always come up with some kickass way to murder the fuck out of them.

6. If you can't tell by now profanity isn't just encouraged, it's fucking expected. So is sex, and gratuitous violence. If you're squeamish drink a tall glass of shut the fuck up juice and go somewhere with your bitch ass.

7. Waging battles, sword fights and fisticuffs is going to happen, sword are in the title, Any and all fights need to be fair to both writers as well as true to the story and characters involved. No one is invulnerable or unkillable. If your character is injured, give 'em a limp or some shit or have them atleast deal with the pain, act like they got hurt. If you're unclear as to this rule, revisit rule #1 and so I know you've read the rules, What's is your FC going to be. Post this in the OOC.

8. Please stick to the character sheet but don't be afraid to spice it up and add to it. If you want to added so extra details and stuff feel free.

9. Be respectful. What happens in the IC stays in the IC. No one wants drama in OOC.

10. No one line posts! Make nice meaty posts, one to two paragraphs. If you need help with ideas, bring it up in the OOC and we can all together come up with something. Plotting is fun!

11. I am a fan of a lot tv shows that takes place in medieval eras. Obviously, I'm a huge Game of Thrones fan, and this is inspired heavily by that, If you want to make a character based around your favorite character or something like that is fine. Just spice it up and twist things around and make the character your own.

12. Real life can be unexpected and hectic at times. I would like it if everyone could post daily but I understand that they may not always be possible. So just be dedicated and post as often as you can. Dedication and activeness is how role-plays stay alive. If you are concerned with your stamina in this story but would still like to be involved, don't entangle your character in any big story archs or plot lines that way no one is stuck waiting for you if you get abducted by aliens or some shit.

13. I am GM, my word, is law, if you don't like it, too fucking bad....I reserve the right to say what goes, and if I feel or find that my authority is undermined or disrespected, I also reserve the right to kick out the offending player and creatively kill their character...

Fiona felt relieve flood through her as she listened to Dorian, as a weight of being held captive she hadn’t even known she carried had been lifted. While she was certainly surprised as his sudden change from accuser to ally she was equally glad to be freed as well and as such she wasn’t too keen at present to push matters but even so she felt a little wary of the general all the same.

It wasn’t till after he’d finished speaking, and his full offer became apparent that she felt a faint pang of guilt at hiding her own connection with the perpetrator of the attack. She smiled warmly towards the pair to mask her momentary lapse before blushing slightly as she thought over the ramifications of the rather generous gift for her people.

”When I left Kythianna my goal at the summit was to secure aid to rebuild my homeland, and you have my heartfelt thanks Dorian; your offer for my people is greatly welcomed and much appreciated. However we may need to discuss it in more detail when we are able.
