Firstly, I'd like to apologize for the lack of title. Secondly, I'd secondly like to apologize for the lack of an introduction. To be quite honest all you really need to know is that the time period (of the universe the RP is set in) is similar to the one in Game of Thrones, the plot will be completely different. And as for the lore, I think it will be better to let everyone have an input as we go along. If it helps, I haven't seen/read GoT, so if you haven't either, I guess we're even. Rules - Knowing that GoT has got NSFW Scenes, you could either fade to darkness, or just do whatever you think is relevant. Obviously people are going to die, you may kill off other's family/nation members, but, if they are key to their plot, make sure to ask for permission prior to killing them. App Forms - Main character: Name: Age: Family/Nation name: Alliances: Appearance (facial): Appearance (clothing): Bio to date: (Optional with other characters, but is a must with main.)

Hold appearance: Region/hold description: Map: Since this RP was previously meant to be on another forum, and it never took off, me, @Raitoningu and @Razgriz brought it here, so just Ctrl+V anf Ctrl+C this into paint and take some land. As I said, I do apologize for the lacking of this introductory post, but I'll be working on it. Apps: My own: Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Show Spoiler Hide Spoiler Main character: Name: Mika Reteck Age: 18 Family: The Retecks Alliances:/ Appearance (facial): Appearance (clothing): Bio to date: Mika was born in Equinor, a former allied family used to occupy this land also - the Stefanas. The two families got along pleasantly, the two actually became great friends. They even fought side by side. Until a storm struck the land, destroying the Reteck hold and leaving an opportunity for the Stefanas to take more land. They took it. Leaving the Retecks (and a five year old Mika) to move to their current home. The coastline land of Garline, they lived there quite happily until the Reteck children became the Reteck orphans. The former rulers - king and queen Reteck drowned in a storm at sea when Mika was sixteen. One of the many older members would've taken over but in their will the king and queen, as with the arrangements with the Reensons for their son, Sven and Mika to be wed and strengthen their alliance. Mika was deemed the new ruler. A heavy burden for a sixteen year old. Though she has her older relatives for support the pressure remains. Relations (married, single etc): Sven / Personality: Mika appears strong and solitary in public, despite her never being alone. Many see her as independent and question why her older relatives try to aid her so much. But only in the public eye is she truly strong. Deep down Mika is a nervous wreck, she has a huge burden to carry now along with the loss of her parents. Her and Sven do not get along so well despite the fact that within a few weeks they'll be wed. The marriage was arranged but it strengthened the alliance with the / family. She can be quite vulnerable at times and often quiet. Role in family: Leader Family App: Name: The Retecks Number of members: 16 Leader: Mika Reteck Strength: (well known? Public followers?) A well known and formerly powerful family. Hold appearance: Region/hold description: Need map /, meaning the former nation of a Roleplayer who dropped out, it would be more than great if someone wouldn't mind allying with The Retecks.

There are 3 main lands of the Nykthonian Dominion, the largest one having several sub-lands. Nykthonia: The largest island, filled in green on the map, is Nykthonia. There are 3 key locations in Nykthonia: Castle Nykthos, the mansion thing where the Nyxborn reside. The City of Walls, to the north, is a bustling city of commerce and trade. It is a huge port town which gets it's name from the wall that surrounds it. Very few of the streets are skylit now, as houses and buildings have been built over the roads themselves, attached to the house on either side with a tiny access ladder. Finally there is the City of the Dead, Asphodel. This lies deep in the eastern mountains, and, while it could function as an impenetrable fortress, it is overrun by a low class of thieves, bandits and conmen. Few people return from Asphodel. Just as well that few people ever set off for it really then. Scardeil: Scardeil (pale blue) lies to the north of a great wall, rumoured to be built of ice. It is a wasteland, made of swamps, peat bogs and frosted varieties of both. Few people live there, however it is infested with all manner of monsters, and the ground contains a lot of valuable minerals. Ellismere: Ellismere, highlighted in yellow, is the main part of Nykthonia. It harbours a large variety of terrains, from the mountains (darker) to the plains (lighter), to the forest and desert (medium). The capitol city of Nykthonia, is not the City of Walls, but the larger town of Hyrule (black), at the center of the Ellismere Heartlands. It is a peaceful province surrounded by fields and meadows. keeping this here. And Razgriz, of course, has a spot reserved.
