      A Tale of Five Kingdoms - Signup Page



      Introduction

      So there's going to be quite a bit of Information, most of which is optional but probably of some interest. This is going to be a semi-realistic Medieval RP. Semi-realistic you ask? Basically it's drawing on Anglo-Saxon and Middle European fact, but playing out in an alternate world of fiction. There will be very limited (but evident) use of magic and some "mythical" monsters! I plan on making this a very active thread, checking it daily and updating the plotline as soon as everybody has PM'd me with their characters actions. Speaking of character actions, this will be along the lines of Sindred's "The Quiet Conspiracy" in that players should PM me with what they want their character to try to do and then I'll write up the action accordingly. Feel free to PM me with extra details you think I might want to include. After all - it's your character.

      I really want this to be an interesting RP for everybody and so that's why I've put in quite a bit of effort on the background side of things. You know, just incase you all feel like reading!

      Finally in terms of creating a Character it might seem daunting. There are many Occupations/Skills/Houses/Lands etc. but generally my advice is simply to PM me before you post. PM me with a character sheet plus anything you wanted but were unsure of and I'll PM you the character sheet back with everything customized to your specifications! Nice and easy!

      Character Sheet


      Name should be roughly in keeping the setting. Try to think “Anglo-Saxon” or if you like “Rohan” – they’re essentially the same thing Aesthetically. The exception is the Ibian Republic, where exotic names make total sense

      Age people don’t live long. 50 is venerable. A knight of 20 has almost definitely seen action. You are considered a man at as young as 14

      Gender

      Occupation check the listed Occupations above

      Physical description not including clothes

      Persona a rough guide to your attitude, personality and quirks.

      Note: you can PM me with any additional details you would like to be included/developed for you character, but don’t want other players to know about. I’ll do my best to work everything in.

      Abilities see the list above

      Special Attributes see the list above

      Character Sheet

      Name: Seward

      Age: 17

      Gender: Male

      Occupation: Bookbinder

      Physical: Seward is a lean teenager, with short, blond hair and dark, serious eyes that always seem to be seeing something from far away. He has a clean countenance, with very light body hair.

      Persona: Seward tends to keep to himself, and so he is mostly silent. However, he does not shy away from people, hard work or labor, especially if it's about giving someone a helping hand. At the same time, he often lends a hand to those in trouble, and so he had to learn basic fighting skills. However, his biggest love are books, which was apparent since he was very young. He never offers his opinion unless he is asked; but when he is asked, he gives it serious thought, and his opinion is often highly valued.

      An Honorable Man

      Nightrock home of house Constantine an ancient house that has grown weaker with time, once a proud house it has been reduced to a minor position. Castle Nightrock stands atop a mountain pass in the cold Casterlands. When summer comes and all the snow melts the Black castle stands out for miles around. However with age parts of the castle have broken down and are unable to be used. So bad that only a third of the huge Castle is operable. However the walls have been maintained.

      Super. Well we've got two players in the Casterlands and another in Ibian - plenty to start the first chapter. It should be posted either on Saturday or Sunday.

      Just to clarify the point made above for future players. You can be a member of a House and not carry the surname. However it will mean you're from a part of the family that has branched off from the main line. This means you'd be of considerably lesser importance politically. I'm making the assumption that for this Thomas is not only a direct descendant, but with his father's death is now the head of House Constantine. As long as you're cool with that?

      Super.
