An Age Old Feud

An Age Old Feud

0 INK

Two kingdoms, once one, but split by an ancient rivalry have begun taking steps toward peace, but will their plans be successful?

1,933 readers have visited An Age Old Feud since Scarlet Loup created it.

Introduction



Image
They say that there was once a tribe that inhabited these lands, many years ago. They were a peaceful people, more or less, who lived as simple hunters and gatherers. But, this method of life could never work for a people who craved to advance. Eventually, they settled among the rivers and valleys, building a small, but suitable town. Their leader was a strong, courageous man, who dubbed himself a king, received by the villagers with not much enthusiasm. From this leader came two strong, young twin boys known as Edward and Henry. The slightly elder of the two, Edward, was the bolder of the two who constantly craved attention and respect from his future subjects. He was brash and acted without thinking, surprisingly winning his father's favor. The younger of the twins, Henry, was much darker than his brother. He possessed a high intellect and was much less daring than his twin. However, he had a strong greed that drove him to terrible deeds.

All went well in the village, which was now presided over by a large, grandiose castle. However, this was bound to change. Eventually, the twins found themselves on either side of their father's death bed. With his dying breath, he bequeathed the kingdom to his eldest, Edward, who was also his favorite. Enraged and feeling betrayed, Henry left the kingdom for years, vowing he would never live under the rule of one so incompetent. Again, things seemed to move on merrily in the kingdom, which was growing more prosperous as the days went on.

Years passed and the King was startled to find a vaguely familiar man show up in his court one day, stating he was there to claim what was rightfully his. Upon closer examination, the King realized the intruder was none other than his younger brother, Henry, come to claim what he believed to be his birth right. He stated he had already built himself a new kingdom toward the edge of his brother's land and that his brother should surrender the kingdom to him- or else.
Being the stubborn, brash man he was, the King scoffed at this offer and sent his brother away, ignoring his "proposition". Again, another year passed uneventfully, save for the occasional quarrel on the border of the Edward and Henry's kingdoms. Then, one morning, the battle began. In what seemed like an instant, Edward's kingdom was brutally attacked with legions of men, all claiming to fight in Henry's name. The unsuspecting kingdom was left weak and its king had a sudden thirst for revenge.

And so, the constant fighting and warfare carried on for many, countless years. The kings decided naming their kingdoms and so, Edward's kingdom became Sliabh and Henry's became Abhainn. Henry's forces were able to advance until both kings had roughly half of the land, but they were met by Edward's forces and stuck in a stand-still. The feuds continued until the former kings, George III of Sliabh and Fredrick VI of Abhainn, finally came to a truce to end the senseless bloodshed. It was said that this truce would finally bring peace between the two and end the fighting that had ravished both countries. The treaty was to be finalized, though Fredrick died suddenly, leaving the kingdom to his only son, Edwin, the throne. Not long after, George also perished and left his kingdom to his heir. The treaty still is pending, however. To add to it, the sister of Sliabh's king has been offered to Abhainn's king as a bride, hoping that it will unite the kingdoms again by blood. In return, Fredrick had offered the kingdom of Sliabh an eighth of its land, consisting mostly of forest. Now, it is up to these young heirs to either finalize what their parents were doing, ending the conflict, or to simply increase the conflict until one kingdom perishes. The fate of the kingdoms is now in the hands of them and their subjects...choose wisely.

The original kingdom that inhabited the land, Sliabh is named for the mountain the castle is perched upon. There is a village down below the castle in the valleys and the entire kingdom has been surrounded by walls, as of at least fifty years ago, to help keep out the Abhainn forces. It is about as prosperous as Abhainn, and utilizes the mines built into surrounding mountains and the bounty of the forests to keep thriving.

Named for the river that rests between it and the neighboring kingdom, Abhainn was formed by Henry over a hundred years ago after he lost the throne to his elder brother.

Toggle Rules

Rule#1: Be courteous! In character fights and drama are encouraged! No one wants a boring kingdom. But please don't let that trickle over OOC. That can be hurtful, and we wouldn't want to lose a valuable player.

Rule#2: Write properly, be clear, be concise. This is literate and therefore I expect, at least, over two hundred words per post. I hate making limits for you all, but I don't want this to die. You may write only a hundred if you are writing dialogue.

Rule#3: NO GODMODDING, BUNNYING, OR METAGAMING-The conventions of roleplaying involve working with your fellow RPers on the RP while remembering you are in direct control of only your character, and that your character's knowledge of a situation is different from your own as the character's owner. The following three types of offenses are flagrant instances of flaunting these conventions, but can easily be avoided with OOC conversation between RPers.

  • Godmodding is cheating the system of RP so that your character comes out either without a scratch or with absolute advantage in any situation. This is typically done without conversing with the RP's owner, and ignores their authority to control the situation of their RP. Examples: Unapproved one blow kills, make out another character to be what they're not, just to make your own character seem superior, acting with total invulnerability to the actions of other Player Characters.
  • Bunnying is taking control of characters when you do not have the authority to do so, and acting contrary to what their real owners would have them do. Unless you have direct permission from the owner of the character, you cannot control them. This is especially true in combat, where you cannot decide if your attacks hit.
  • Metagaming involves using applying Out-of-Character knowledge of a situation to your character's benefit. This is not always intended, but does not change the fact that the advantage is noticable and generally unfitting with what the character would have done based on in-character knowledge and reactions. If you keep the distinction between what you know and what your character knows, this is easy to avoid.

Rule#4: Reservations can be made in the OOC. They will last fourty-eight hours. However, just because you reserve a character does not mean it is definately yours. Please make your character histories make sense with the character histories of the other characters. That means you should read the bios of the other characters.

Rule#5: Participating in RPs is a privilege, but also a responsibility. Respect other members of the RP.(Please also let other RPers you are on with that you will be leaving if at all possible, most people do not enjoy being left hanging.)

Liam hid shyly behind his father, stepping out just slightly. He looked her over and then, feeling more comfortable, gave a big grin with bright eyes. He stepped forward, giving the princess a sweeping bow. "Hello there, Miss. I'm Liam!" He snapped back up and rocked on his heels. "You sure are pretty, miss princess!"

Charles laughed softly and gave a genuine smile as Liam hid himself behind the king, peeking out slightly at the princess. As if suddenly feeling more comfortable, he stepped forward and gave a low bow that sent a wave of pride through Charles. At least he'd done something right as a parent. Gently, the king rested a hand on his son's shoulder in a reassuring, fatherly manner.

"He is quite the charmer," Charles said, laughing softly. In reality, though, he was delighted to see them interacting so well. One of his greatest concerns had been Liam not approving of the princess. Well, that was his second worry; his first being the fact that the princess may resent him. He walked back toward the chair, letting his hand slide off of Liam's shoulder, and sat down again, watching the two.

Annelise giggled as Liam bowed, smiling down at him and giving a small curtsy in return. "Why thank you.." She murmured, kneeling back down in front of him. "It's very nice to meet you Liam."

Sir Guy proceded towards the training grounds. Spotting Sir Fitzgerald along the way, and approached the man directly.
"My, my, my, Sir Fitzgerald. What an astonishing sight to behold my liegeman awake in arms, not washed up dry in in 't alley of a tavern." Guy teased.
"Yesternight a man inquired about thee. I replied, yes I know a gentleman your referring to. I saw him just yesterday, and there he was gambling, there he was totally wasted, fighting with somebody about a jousting match, or, perchance, I saw him enter a house of ill-repute. Thou call thyself a true Knight of Abhainn?" Guy pushed him on one shoulder.

Lady Gweneth Fitzgerald


Gwen nodded to Ladislaus request not for a carriage "very well, it is best to explore the country on horseback anyhow" she spoke with a slight happiness, riding was one of Gwen's passions, she had been a keep horsewoman since an early age and jumped at any opportunity to take her mare 'Whisper' out.

A small voice finally caught Gwen's attention, looking down to the Kings side she noted a young child, then it dawned on her, it was his daughter. The blonde watched the scene with interest, the child was obviously illegitimate, if the Queen had given birth to an heir, Albhainn would most definitely of heard about it. The child must have held a special claim in Ladislaus heart for him to acknowledge her as his own, judging by his reputation she doubted this was the first child he fathered. Gwen found herself smiling down at the scene, it reminded her of Charles and Liam together and Gwen, despite her slightly hardened heart had a soft spot for dutiful fathers, she prayed one day her children, if the gods granted her children, would be loved by an honourable ad dutiful father. Soon the little girl ran off and Gwen turned her head back to the king "you have a beautiful child sire, she is a credit to you."

The blonde took the kings arm as he offered it and they began their walk from the throne room “So how long exactly have you known King Charles?” The question took her by surprise, gazing at him suspiciously she hesitated before answering, why was he so interested in her relationship with Charles? Breaking her silence Gwen let out a small sigh "my father sent me and my brother to the palace after the fever ravished Beaumont Quay, taking my mothers life along with three of my sibling" Gwen explained steadily, she would not show her weakness in front of the enemy.

Sir Conán Fitzgerald


"My, my, my, Sir Fitzgerald. What an astonishing sight to behold my liegeman awake in arms, not washed up dry in in 't alley of a tavern." had been teaching a defensive block when a familiar, annoying voice resounded across the field "My, my, my, Sir Fitzgerald. What an astonishing sight to behold my liegeman awake in arms, not washed up dry in in 't alley of a tavern." Conán smirked at his words as he continued his training with the new recruit, surly Guy should have learnt by now that small digs at his expense weren't something he took seriously.

"Yesternight a man inquired about thee. I replied, yes I know a gentleman your referring to. I saw him just yesterday, and there he was gambling, there he was totally wasted, fighting with somebody about a jousting match, or, perchance, I saw him enter a house of ill-repute. Thou call thyself a true Knight of Abhainn?" That comment caused the Knight to laugh loudly and finally turn to acknowledge Sir Guy Kirkshaw "I see all work and no play has made Sir Kirkshaw very bad at conducting insults" Conán replied returning his sword to its scabbard and turned to the man he was training with "go practise" he ordered.

"And as for your question honourable Sir Kirkshaw...Yes I do consider myself a true Knight of Abhainn as I have proven it on the battlefield, time and time again. So boy...Next time you speak ill of me, remember one is not considered a true Knight for the morals you live by, for every man believes theirs are the ones others should adhere. Being a knight is about serving your King and country, laying down your life if need be, sacrificing yourself so that your kinsmen may live." Conán stated, nudging Guy back, his lips in a tight line, his eyes narrowed with emotions, before his mood lightened and a small smirk appeared on his lips.

"So forgive me Sir Kirkshaw, but being a Knight will most likely take my life so I am going to enjoy the time I have left."

The jerking and bumping of the carriage may have frustrated any normal person when attempting to read but in Josslyn's mind it was just a challenge. A challenge that soon lost its interest when it became apparent that it was just something that wasn't possible. Thankfully her dear hand maiden Elisa was accompanying her to the Kingdom of Abhainn. The afternoon was bright and noisy, with the sun positioned directly overhead and the chirping of birds filling the air. Josslyn stared out the carriage window, enjoying the blur that was trees and fields passing by. A gust of wind would occasionally sweep through and tousle her neatly done hair, much to Elisa's annoyance.

"M'lady, may we please close the curtains, the wind is ruining your hair. We're expected to arrive at Abhainn within the hour and I wouldn't think it is appropriate for your hair to be so terribly messy." The sweet girl, while she always had a formal tone, talked with Josslyn in a relaxed and comfortable way, something that she deeply cherished.

"Elisa, do not fret so much, I was simply enjoying the freshness." She gave the girl a tender smile, in terms of how she felt it was all very confusing but she could not deny that she was attracted to Elisa. Just as Elisa started to argue back she leaned over and put a finger against her lips. "I know and I'm sorry." The Hand-maiden, used to such fondness in her Queen's touch didn't react. Despite being caring for Josslyn, she still didn't quite understand what it meant. Was this strange attraction between them the same love that could be between a man and a woman? That was a ponder for another day because very soon the carriage was slowing down.

Josslyn sat back with a content sigh, giving Elisa a secretive smile and staring into her eyes for a moment longer. Finally the carriage came to a halt and the door was jerked open causing bright sunlight to pour into their dark and cosy compartment. Josslyn didn't hesitate against the blinding light and quickly and elegantly stepped out. There before her was the palace of Abhainn, the place that after so many years of feuding were finally going to make peace. While it should have been expected that the Queen might have had some animosity against such a treaty but in actuality Josslyn had no feelings of ill against them. How could someone hate a whole Kingdom? There were people with families, children, lovers and friends. How could you hate them when you didn't even know them? So, because of this Josslyn had firmly stuck to her belief that this treaty was a very good opportunity to finally connect with their long lost half. So of course, despite her presence not really needed she wanted to be there just to make sure.

As she stepped out of the carriage, heeled foot tapping against the cobblestone she looked around at the grand palace. It was very different from Sliabh, but it had its own unique air. She breathed in deeply, filling her lungs with the different air, yet it had the same feel, taste and smell. This place was not so different from Sliabh. Turning back sharply she reached a hand up to help Elisa down. It may have looked odd, the Queen helping her Hand-Maiden, but for the Sliabh servants they were used to their Queens difference.

"My Queen." Came a gruff voice to her right. "I'll jus' take ta carriage to the stables and get yer gear inside for ya." The Schaeffer was a beaten looking man, slightly hunched with a limp. He had seen a few battles for Sliabh and remained truly loyal.

"Thank you, Rook." She said as he left to handle that. Josslyn turned back to the entrance of the palace, now it was just a waiting game to see who would greet them. She had sent a message along before her arrival so they were expecting her. At least she had Elisa for company.

Annelise smiled as Liam rushed out half an hour later, covering many topics and getting to know each other better before he decided to watch the knights. She sat down in her chair again and sighed, a bit exhausted trying to keep up with the boy, smiling at Charles and blushing softly.

"He's very sweet.." She murmured, glad that he wasn't resentful of her like she had expected

Ladislaus smiled gently as they walked out of the throne room, what more could he ask for right now? He had a beautiful guild in a strange place, a daughter who knew how to play by herself; yes everything seemed to be going grand for him at the moment. That is until he saw Josslyn standing in the entrance way. He had hoped his Queen would for once do as he asked and stay in Sliabh, after all the treaty wasn’t active yet and anything could happen to the woman.

“Josslyn?” he questioned not bothering to use her full title on his own wife. “What are you doing here?” He said then quickly remembered himself, and introduced Lady Gweneth.

“Lady Gweneth, may I introduce my wife Queen Josslyn.” He said wife with a small grunt like smile on his face. “Josslyn, this is Lady Gweneth Fitzgerald.”

“Now the question stands, why have you come here?” He asked his face still dumbfounded, at the thought that she rode all the way from Sliabh, with only her handmaiden as protection. A Bandit could have easily snatched them of the road, not that Ladislaus cared much for his wife, but still he had to hold some loyalty to her.

“Please tell me you at least have the company of Judith with you?” he asked referring to the captain of the guard who he hoped would materialize with his wife.

"Nay, I beseech you sir. Be not out with me. Content thyself." Guy said to Sir Conán. "Yet do I fear thy nature. But it is the part of men to fear and tremble when the most mighty God by tokens send dreadful heralds to astonish us. Shalt heaven take you when cold steel has taken the life from thy lips? God pardon them that are the cause thereof. I humbly take my leave now, to bring the King's justice upon those who threaten the sanctity of his people. By this sword I shall. Oh, is that envy I see in thine eyes? Then fix thine eyes upon me as I majestically take my leave with my men."

Josslyn's welcome was not as welcoming as she had expected. She was in fact greeted by a very shocked and rather unimpressed Ladislaus. At the sound of her name she turned, mildly concerned, to see her King walking rather briskly towards her with a strange woman. She was expecting this sort of response from him but she was hoping that she could have been greeted by an Abhainn before she had to confront her husband. He was rather direct in his questioning her, at the last minute it dawned on him that they were in company and he managed to gruffly introduce her to the woman who turned out to be Lady Gweneth. Courteous and proper as ever Josslyn gave a regal nod to the Lady.

"It is a pleasure to meet you Lady Gweneth." Her voice gentle compared to her husbands brusque introduction. She was genuinely interested in meeting this woman, as it was curious as to why she was here with Ladislaus rather than another royal member.

But as always her King was straight to the point. Giving a small apologetic smile to Gweneth she then turned to Ladislaus, her palms delicately cupped together at the base of her hip. She made no show of being irritated at his tone or that he was being quite rude. Instead she gave him a look of contempt.

"My King, as we discussed previously I believe that both of us should be at the signing of the treaty, if only to show that the House of Sliabh is strong and in unison." She spoke slowly and deliberately, like her usual manner when there were guests. "As for Judith, I believe she was following on horse, but it seems she has been delayed."

She looked once from Gweneth before back to Ladislaus, interested if he might choose her as an affair. She couldn't care less but it could be a consequence that would break the treaty if he was found committing adultery.

Lady Gweneth Fitzgerald


Gweneth and Ladislaus glided from the throne room an air of grace surrounding them, that was until they came to a abrupt halt, almost bumping into a woman. Gwen regarded her cautiously, natural suspicion running through her, she had never been too trusting of strangers. One of the main reasons she agreed to go on a ride with Ladislaus was to get to know him a little better, see if he truly came as a friend or foe of Abhainn.

"Josslyn?" Ladislaus spoke, his tone unreadable along with his facial expression. It dawned on her suddenly, this was the Queen, her eyes widened slightly and she suddenly let go of his arm, if he were her husband she certainly wouldn’t like to see another woman on his arm. With his surprise Gwen came to the conclusion that he wasn’t expecting his wife at Abhainn “Lady Gweneth, may I introduce my wife Queen Josslyn…Josslyn, this is Lady Gweneth Fitzgerald.” Not one to miss things, Gwen easily noted the way Ladislaus voice strained upon pronouncing ‘wife’ which led her to the conclusion that he held some resentment towards the Queen and by the Josslyn looked at her husband she could say that the feeling was mutual. "It is a pleasure to meet you Lady Gweneth."

“Welcome to Abhainn Queen Josslyn” Gwen greeted her in a much warmer manner than she had done the younger sister, offering a small smile “I trust your journey was pleasant?”

King Ladislaud of Sliabh


Ladislaus looked upong his wife's face as she spoke, he certainly did remember the conversation they had had before leaving Sliabh but he would hardly call the argument a civil conversation between man and wife. (Or perhapes that is the best way to put such a delicate topic.) As he recalls he had sugested to his queen she remain in Sliabh untill he sent for her, when they had a more sound date for the wedding. Of course he knew better then to asume Josslyn wouldn't follow them here, I wounder is she is upset we left without her he poundered as he suddenly realized Lady Gweneth's hand was no longer clutched to his arms.

"Well my dear" he said with a great strain on the word 'dear', "Lady Gweneth was just about to show me the ground, I trust you are far too tired from your journey to acompany us?"

He half hoped his wife was able to accompany them, for her still wasn't entirely sure this peace treaty would last for long and King Charles was just looking for the ideal time to stick a knife down his thorugh.

"I do know how much you enjoy ridding." he added, that was about the vast of his knowledge about his wife, but it was enough for any man he suposed.

Charles gave a light chuckle in response to her comment whilst crossing his hands to place in his lap. Her words brought a brief smile to his face, causing his cheeks to raise and crow's feet form for a fraction of a second.

"Thank you very much," he replied, watching the boy disappear from the room. "I was always worried I would not make a good father for my son..." He turned to look at her again, all traces of the smile gone from his face. "His mother died whilst in labor. I was only nineteen, she just a few years younger than me." Forcing a weak smile, he looked over Annelise quickly. "Just about your age."

He stood and stretched his back slowly before glancing down at Annelise again. "If you wish, I could give you a tour of the castle? But, of course, only if you are not feeling weary or tired."

Josslyn knew they had differences, she knew that she could never love him and vice versa but must he really be so unprofessional and show that? He could at least be a bit more civil when speaking to her with outside company. Even Lady Gweneth was more polite than her husband. Regardless, she kept a neutral smile on her lips and nodded respectfully at the Lady, showing she acknowledged her.

Her dear husband was now inquiring if she intended to accompany them on a horse ride. She hadn't been on a ride for a while and in all honesty she missed the freedom and the naturalness that is the wild. Josslyn would never miss an opportunity such as that, especially after being cooped up in the jerky carriage.

"I would love to accompany both you and Lady Gweneth, that is of course that the Lady doesn't mind?" As Queen she had every right to come along, regardless of what the Lady wanted or not, but it seemed that she was a woman of influence and getting on her good side seemed like the right idea.

Lady Gweneth Fitzgerald


Gweneth soured slightly as Ladislaus extended the invitation for his Queen to accompany them on their tour of Abhainn. She had been hoping to somewhat interrogate the King about this treat him and Charles had in place and also about his sister. Information she knew would not be able for her to obtain but she had her means of persuasion…means, however that weren’t necessarily appropriate in the presence of his wife, even if it was a loveless marriage.

"I would love to accompany both you and Lady Gweneth; that is of course that the Lady doesn't mind?" Josslyn answered her lord and husband before turning her gaze towards Gwen. The blonde smiled politely “not at all majesty” Gwen returned with all the elegance and suave of her upbringing. Gwen had always been an excellent judge of character and she could often tell if she was going to like someone within seconds of meeting them, Queen Josslyn however seemed exempt to this rule, the woman was strong and determined much like herself, she admired the woman for travelling across country against her husbands word, all these traits had told her that she could befriend the Queen but Gwen did not make friends easily, especially with women, most were to weak and feeble minded to even acknowledge and then others were just looking to stab her in the back.

She had yet to decide where she would stand with Josslyn. “We should leave now if we want to return before nightfall.”

Ladislaus looked from Josslyn to Gweneth silently hoping, nay begging that the lady would refuse his wife’s company. He knew it wasn’t proper to do so, but one cannot hide their true wishes too well in this world. However it would seem her ladyship did not reject his queen, the noble choice by far and an elegant execution to boot. It was an excellent quality in a woman he had to admit, and one that he respected a woman for, and yet the thought of not being able to flirt with such a delicate young creature made the smile he held so perfecting transform into a frown.

“Well then let’s not waste any time!” he exclaimed and offered his arm to Lady Gweneth once more, then remembering his wife extended his left arm to her without thinking of any social educate. The thought of two women despite his feelings of the one, on either of his arms put a smile on his face.

Matilda sat in the courtyard with daisies in her hair and lilies in her hands. She was making a flower wreath for her father. She loved her father dearly, yet she was still too young to understand the circumstances of her birth. From the day she could talk she referred to The Queen as mother, even if she was later scolded for it afterword’s. She was only six after all; she didn’t understand the concept of “bustards” yet along were babies come from. She still had the fantasy of a stork brining babies to their parents as infants. One day, she thinks she will be Queen of Sliabh, but the very definition of a “Queen” is ageist her on that.

((Medieval Definition of Queen: The wife of a King.))

Charles held out a hand toward Annelise and helped her up before he turned and walked toward the door. His calloused fingers fastened around the door's handle before he swung it open and held it for Annelise. Letting her pass, he continued out into the hallway and started down the same hallway in the direction of the East Wing. There were a few rooms that branched off of it, a few training rooms with swords and weapons hung around, another was filled with shelves of books covering every inch of the , and toward the end of the hallway sat a private study with what appeared to be an ornate, well-made chess board in the center of the room.

"This is my study," he said simply, gesturing around the large room. "It's quite calming, especially when you are in charge of an entire kingdom's well-fare." He smiled softly and stepped aside to let her in if she wished.

Lady Gweneth Fitzgerald


Gwen accepted Ladislaus arm with a happy smile as she lead them out of the palace and towards the stables, it was a relatively quick walk, taking them through the court yard; the servants bustling around, moving in and out of doors carrying various items, all ready for the banquet this evening, which was in honour of the royal visitors.

Glancing back at the castle, she briefly wondered what Charles and his soon-to-be bride were up to. Her and Charles had always been close; she had first come to the palace when the fever ravished her home and had remained there for many years, during which she and Charles had developed a good friendship, of course for her it was something more, Gwen had fallen in love in those three years. Call her a hopeless romantic but how could you not love such a great man?

They arrived at the stables, Gwen immediately moving to her beautiful speckled grey thoroughbred, patting the studs long nose with an affectionate smile "hello old boy" she whispered kindly.

Annelise smiled, grinning in awe as she looked around and hesitantly stepped inside, feeling out of place even though she knew she belonged here. "It's beautiful.." She murmured, turning to look up at him.

Re: An Age Old Feud

Hey guys, Calvazara starte up a new roleplay called "The Village: Part One". It takes place right before the beginning of World War I in a small English village. There are still four spots we need filled for it to start off and I'm making two characters for it so, if you want, please see if there's a character you'd want that's up for grabs :D

Re: An Age Old Feud

Posted!

So how you guys like the new updates?

Re: An Age Old Feud

okay i submitted a new (and better) captain of Abhainn

Re: An Age Old Feud

Sorry I didn't post yesterday, I was finishing up a game... :) last two missions, it drove me crazy to not be able to complete it.

Re: An Age Old Feud

yeah, lets do that :3

Re: An Age Old Feud

I did say you could type 100 words when writing dialogue, which is what most of us are doing.

@remy: That'd be really nice, thanks.

We just need someone to play Liam...Atha, do you want to timeskip and assume that all three of them have talked for a while and Liam left the room or something? I'd timeskip to the banquet but I sort of want to see Ladislaus and Gwen talking and stuff :3

Re: An Age Old Feud

200 word count... I think

Re: An Age Old Feud

...how are we not living up to the rules..

Re: An Age Old Feud

don't worry i was thinking about creating some more characters. Ill play the Abhainn captain as anna's replacement if you no one else wants to.

Re: An Age Old Feud

That's unfortunate...I'm sorry to hear that, Anna.

Hm...jeez, this sucks.

Re: An Age Old Feud

Sorry to seem like a terrible person, but I don't think I'll be able to continue this RP. I simply don't have enough time in the day to try and catch up with every post because there are SO many characters, and I also feel like we aren't really living up to the rules. So, I'm terrible sorry, but I'm going to have to eject myself.

Perhaps another time, lovelies~

Re: An Age Old Feud

lol, that is pretty funny.

Re: An Age Old Feud

XD I'm laughing out loud right now. That comment just made my day! Thank you for picking up on that. In actual fact it is the name of a guy I knew and for some odd reason I must have been thinking of him and so when I was writing instead of Ladislaus I wrote his name XD Oh that is just too funny!!

Re: An Age Old Feud

@Adantas: um who is Jonathan? I read your profile and it says 'Jonathan choice her" and well The King of Sliabh is Ladislaus, so pardon if i'm not confused who your talking about.

Re: An Age Old Feud

So guys... I'm just curious... how should I start?

Re: An Age Old Feud

Sorry, I was watching TV. I'll reply now but I gotta go in like twenty minutes 'cause I need some sleep...

Re: An Age Old Feud

Where everyone go? D:

Re: An Age Old Feud

@Adantas: Yay, thank you for showing interest in my roleplay!

Re: An Age Old Feud

Oh yey I get a queen... Yey! this just brightened my day.

Re: An Age Old Feud

Heyo!

I was just having a snoop around and have come across your RP. I was wondering if I could reserve the Queen of Sliabh.

I'll have a charry up soon.

Cheers,
A
