Chessboard Kingdoms

Chessboard Kingdoms

0 INK

The Black and White Kingdoms are at war, and have been for almost twenty years. New leaders have taken the thrones, and now it's time to end this.

1,071 readers have visited Chessboard Kingdoms since Chicka created it.

Introduction

For centuries, the Black Kingdom and the White Kingdom have existed in peace. In fact, the Black Kingdom held the Amulet of Peace, and this was passed down through the female line, from Queen to Queen throughout the ages. While each side kept a small army, and kept up with the training of Rooks, Bishops, and Knights, neither thought a war could ever happen.
But one night, a White Knight and an ambitious Pawn snuck into the Black Castle. They murdered the Black Queen, stole the Amulet of Peace, and fled. Rather than admit that they had a traitor on their hands and seek the help of the Black King, the White King accused the Black King of lying. The Black King declared war.
It has been twenty years since the murder of the Black Queen, and new, young rulers have taken the thrones on both sides. It is up them, and their armies, to end this war and recover the Amulet of Peace. There are only two questions. The first question is simple: Are you up to the task? The second question may take some time to answer: How will this all end?

Playable Characters:

The Knight and Pawn who stole the Amulet of Peace?
You’d better believe that they’re still out there.
They might not have the Amulet anymore, but

Toggle Rules

1. Obviously, follow the general rules.
2. I would be quite happy if we could keep the genders relatively even. Given the time-period, male-heavy would be fine.
3. NO GOD-MODDING. I cannot emphasize that enough.
4. Please ask before killing someone else's character. Killing NPC pawns is fine, but ask before you kill a character.
5. If you read all this, sing us a song in OOC. Or something.
6. Do not play anyone else's character. If you do, I will send the Great Sky Dragon of this world's mythology to eat you. You will be crunchy and I suspect you may be good with ketchup.
7. Swearing is allowed, unless someone specifically mentions taking issue with it.
8. Romance. I get it. There will be some. If it gets to a certain point, you will be asked to take it to PM or fade out.
