((In Character RP thread)) ((Bios Thread Here, for those who want to: BIO AND JUMPIN - Character Bios For Lost Lands | IwakuRoleplay.com )) Long ago, Gods and Men existed together, the Gods reigning over men, loyal servants. Under the Gods, four kingdoms existed- Esilott, the center of the world, where the Gods ruled from their Amaranth Keep. The people of Esilott stood a foot taller than most men, capping around 7'2. Loyn, the second greatest kingdom, far across the sea from Esilott, on the Western Continent. The people of Western Loyn have a more refined appearance, with fair skin. The people of Eastern Loyn are as pure human as possible, standing on average 5'11, with varying skin colors and hair colors. Silver Isle, a place where the nobility found themselves above all others. Located on an island Northwest of Esilott. The people of Silver Isle are similar to those of Eastern Loyn, though with paler skin and lighter features overall. Cadwall, the most savage of the Four Kingdoms, though, some would say, closest to the Gods. This kingdom is located south of Loyn, upon the Western Continent. The people of Cadwall stand taller than normal men, have sharp ears, and grow their hair long. Man became overzealous. Regenard, Prince of Loyn, led an army against Esilott, composed of the Men of Loyn and Men of Silver Isle. The war was long, and brutal, and the Gods, ever arrogant, failed to see that they were losing, until the armies of Regenard and King Alderon of Silver Isle stood outside the gates of the Amaranth. The three knights of the Gods, the last men loyal to their once-rulers, took up arms, willing to defend their masters to the death. But the Gods cowered in their chairs, and decided instead to release a plague, which ravaged all of Esilott, making the land barren. The armies of Loyn and Silver Isle were decimated. The two kingdoms, however, stood victorious- for although their armies were destroyed, the Gods fled, far off, to leave man to its fate. Loyn became the new center of the world, its capitol of Bastion standing as an example to all. Silver Isle became isolated. Cadwall grew distant from Loyn, and many embraced the Gods, though they abandoned mankind. Now, Loyn finds itself at the brink of war. A woman, a graduate of the College of Redcourt, in northwestern Loyn, has declared herself and her followers independent from the kingdom she was once loyal to, calling her claimed territory "Rhos". The nobility has yet to answer this affront to the noble nation. Something stirs in Cadwall. An old magic, perhaps. Several small villages in Loyn and Cadwall seem to be falling prey to disease, their fields growing barren. Ships from Silver Isle have been seen in the ports of Bastion, flying the flag of the King. Take up arms. Defend yourself, because no one else will. Rules: Do as you please, really. If a major NPC is killed, for example, the King of Loyn or Queen of Rhos, well, we'll just have to wing it. Don't just off another person's character. Have at least decent writing ability. Three sentence replies minimum. You can create an order for your character to be from, or some backstory, or whatever. Characters: The King of Loyn, Carhurst- A man descended from Prince Regenard himself. Proud of his kingdom, he will likely not let Loyn fall without a fight. King Chester of Silver Isle- The only nobility of Silver Isle. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murderer. Chester and Carhurst are close friends. Lady Morgan, Scholar of Redcourt- The warlord who dares stand against the might of Loyn. Eileen- A mysterious woman, a member of the triumvirate of Cadwall. Fife- A member of the triumvirate of Cadwall. Like Eileen, he rode into the capitol one day, and made fast friends with the people of Cadwall. The Hawk Knight- A name only spoken of in dark alleys. Less of a man, more of a story mothers tell their children. Our characters- Individuals placed in a greater game.
