War of Love and Duty

0 INK

After her parents died, the princess has had to take over the kingdom. But now there's so much confusion! ...But why don't you click to find out?

780 readers have visited War of Love and Duty since Crystal Flamedance created it.

Introduction

She didn't even have the time to mourn. Her parents died while they were in the middle of yet another war; they needed someone to take charge, and right away. She had never been good at taking charge, especially when it came to war. The princess could only get advice from people she trusted knew what they were talking about; people experienced in different areas. But that's only a portion of the problem.

Her parents seemed to know that, if anything happened, she would have trouble keeping everything straight. So she'd need someone to help her lead. Before they died, they sent for a prince, one experienced enough in war he'd be able to help, and they had hoped he would be a suitor for her. She didn't find out until afterwards, so there was nothing she could do about it. But there is another factor that makes this problem much worse.

Months before her parents had died, a thief was caught trying to steal from the castle. The original sentence was to be stuck in a dungeon, but the princess found it as a way to be helpful for the war; considering he had only been caught because he had someone along that had wanted to help, and only cause trouble for him. She spared him that, but instead, he has to sneak into the enemy kingdoms to gather information for her. At first, she would only report back that information to her parents, but, when they died, she had to figure out how to apply it to whatever she could do about it.

And the factor that makes it worse? She knows the thief likes her, and that he knows she knows. She acts coldly towards him, trying to make sure he knows the only reason she keeps him around is for information; besides, she practically spared his life, he owed her. But that's only a front, and the thief has only a suspicion about it, but she does like him, too.

Where this becomes a bigger problem? The last person from royalty to fall for someone that wasn't from the same class was no longer considered alive to any of the rest of her family; the traditions that royalty have to live up to would never allow it. She doesn't want to be forced to leave; she has a younger sister that she doesn't believe is ready for any of this, and that she needs to be there for her. Which leads her to a very hard choice; the thief she likes so much...and leave her sister to deal with things on her own, or the prince she barely even knows...and leave her own happiness behind?


You can be the thief, the prince, any of the friends that the princess consults, or anyone from another kingdom planning to attack. Any other characters are welcome, provided they will go along well enough with the story.
(The thief and prince have been taken; still looking for other people for her to consult.(Though the prince seems to have disappeared, and my need to be replaced, depending o whether or not he comes back.))

Toggle Rules

1) No godmodding.

2) Do not just drop out; let me know if you are going to be unable to post, or if something got in the way, or if it's only a temporary leave. Either way, I'll find something for your charcter to be doing while you're gone.

3) Don't make a character and then just leave, and never post. Then you've wasted time making the character, and I've wasted time reading and looking over it.

4) Don't just add abilities as we go on; list them beforehand, and only add new ones if you're character actually took the time to learn them during the course of the rp.

5) Don't tell me you're going to add more later, unless it's you mention that you plan to have the character learn more later on. I don't want any sudden godmoddish surprises.

6) Characters can argue and get into fights...that does not mean that you, as the creators of the characters, are going to fight amongst yourselves. If the fight is in character, keep it there, and not out of character. If there are any disagreements, please talk them out calmly in the OOC, and not start an argument aver it.

7) You may make a character of any race, as long as the characteristics of that race are reasonable. If necessary, I will make an OOC section to list out the characteristics of the races we have, which will be open to discussion as long as none of them start to become close to godmoddish or the vampires turn into the Twilight version of vampires (Vampires should not sparkle! -_-).

8) You may create multiple charatcers, as long as you can keep track of the number of charatcers you make. But I don't want too many characters from the same person; don't dominate the rp with so many characters, please.

9) Romance is allowed, but remember site rules; keep it PG, okay? Same goes for going too far into detail with gory details in a fight.

10) I would like to avoid one-line posts whenever possible. I understand every now and then, but not all the time, please; give the others something to reply to.

11) Try to keep the OOC...in the OOC section. I know, what a concept! But seriously; it can sometimes become hard to read if there are OOC additions to the posts.

12) Keep checking back here every now and then; I may have forgotten something, and will add anything later that I see as necessary. Don't worry; if you do something that I forgot to mention, I will not hold it against you; it's only when you make that mistake after it's been added to the rules.

13) So...that's all I've got for now...so let's get this started, shall we?

Jacob shook his head. "that must not be told to anyone, no one should know. If we tell them, then they'd think i'm against them. Not to mention, the Princess didn't accept my help, so i can not help the kingdom at them moment." Jacob said, he knew if the princess, Saldonis, or Avard found out, then they'd think Jacob was working for another kingdom, which he was not.

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

Hey...my posting will be a bit slow for a while...my computer had to get sent off and I won't have it back until probably the eighth of December, and until then I have to use my mom's computer, so I won't be on as often. Just letting you guys know.

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

Ack; I used the wrong name. :P Maybe I need to pay more attention now. :P

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

Yall i won't be able to get on for a few days, i'll post again probably Wednesday, but i'll try to post sooner.

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

awwwwwwwwwwwww........*wipes a tear from his eye (not really but yea)* Xia is being nice to Jacob.....i think i'm going to cry out of happiness (not really but yea)



LOL

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

Well in truth to explain their negative reactions towards Jacob. Avard is a prince, he expects non-royalty to obey him… well… he is a child at heart… he throws a tantrum… as for Xia she sees you as a probably threat to her liege whom she would give her life before letting harm befall. As for Saldonis… he is just bitter… most people would be if those they defend thought ill of them… though he really hasn’t done anything mean… if he didn’t like you he’d have already attacked.

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

*sniffles (not really but yea...)* Raven why does your characters have to be so mean to my character, he's harmlessful *cries.(not really but yea)*

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

i'll post the Thief when the princess and prince get back to the castle.

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

Alright, then. I'll send you what i can...can't send the picture that's there, though. Can send everything else, though.

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

i'll make an effort, thats all i can do, is try. just send me a pm with the characters info and everything

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

If you want to, and you know you can play him along with the other characters you have, go right ahead. I just want to make sure you are capable of taking all three before you try, though. Don't want to put too much work on anyone...

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

Crystal, this will push it a little bit, but if ya want i can try to take over the Thief and play as him as well.

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

I think Raven's characters hate my character, all 1500 of his characters. They all want to kill Jacob, does he pose that much of a threat to the kingdom?

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

hey yall, i hate to do this, but i've been feeling like crap for a few days and i'm going to be gone for the next couple of days, just until i get over this bug. it shouldn't be but a few days, i'll be back as soon as i'm over it.

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

Okay; just so eneryone knows, I'm thinking about replacing the thief. He hasn't even logged on the site since his last post, and that's a while. He was supposed to be a more important part to the plot than that. Just FYI kinda thing, is all. :P

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

Raven, i like that metaphore you used. "naught but an asp, rearing itself to strike"

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

Raven what do you mean by a shadow and a shadow of a knight?

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

my character will remember that.

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

It is... but its the best place to aim when you want a man to surrender... don't think there are many who would well... try and move and risk something as horrible as that.

Re: [OOC] War of Love and Duty

that was a cheap shot Raven.
