You are cordially invited... ...to the Spring Equinox Ball! Their Majesties the King and Queen of Illiend formerly invite you to attend. There will be music, dancing, and food prepared by the finest chefs in the kingdom. For entertainment, we have hired the Dancing Dragons, the famous acrobatic group, to perform for your viewing pleasure. However, our main attraction of the night will be the formal declaration of Princess Amelia Antionette Leauve and Prince Edwin Alexander Leauve's eligibility for marriage! The prince and princess have turned sixteen years of age, and the king and queen seek suitable bachelors and bachelorettes of fine background to wed the young royals. Perhaps you shall be the one to win the hand of our beloved princess, or capture the heart of our valiant prince...? We hope to see you in attendance (Click the link above to head to the ball!) *** Hello everyone! I've got a fine roleplay that I think everyone will enjoy! As mentioned in the invitation, this is a ball centered around the idea of winning the hands of Princess Amelia and Prince Edwin (both played by me). But that mean you HAVE to try and win their hearts? Hell no! Do you have to be a noble? Pfft, no. Be of nobility, or be a humble servant, in attendance only because of duty, but most importantly, have fun! Perhaps tonight you'll find true love...? Rules! Now everyone should know these by now, but I'll go over it again for fun's sake, and to add in a few things of my own! 1. No godmoding or powerplaying. Come on now, people. 2. No sex. We can get a bit touchy feely here and there, but any smut you're thinking about can stick to pms, thank you. This is a place for everyone to play around in. 3. "Can I do MxM/FxF here?" Why the hell not? The prince and princess aren't picky, so why should you be? :P 4. Drama is wonderful! In the plot. Try not to fight or I'll have to boot you out. ): 5. Have fun! :D Just be sure to fill out the correct character sheet and we'll get this show on the road, shall we? Character sheet (Nobility and royalty) Name: Status: (Prince? Princess? Lord or Lady? King or Queen, maybe?) Age: Species: (Why not add some fantasy in to the mix? Be an elf, a vampire, anything you want! :D) Sexuality: (It can be secret if you like, but it gives the players an idea of whether or not you're available. ;P) Personality: (Tell us who you are, babeh) Kingdom: (Go ahead and make up the name, but mostly we'd like to know what makes your kingdom an asset to Illiend, and give us an idea as to where you come from! As a noble, you don't have to provide a new kingdom, and are allowed to choose from one of the listed below, but royals have to come from different kingdoms, unless discussed with other players.) Character sheet (servant!) Name: Job: (Do you work directly with the nobility? Or are you more shunned off to the background?) Age: Species: (It's a pretty diverse place, after all) Sexuality: (Same as with the nobles, we're all interested. :D) Personality: (Gimme the details) Employment history: (Who do you work for? Why do you work for them?) Aaand there we are! After this, I'll post up the character sheets for the prince and princess, and we'll get the ball rolling! (Yay puns!) Lets see what you got! ---- ~Kingdoms Thus far~ (The kingdom listing is mostly to keep track of our royalty and nobility, as well as a way for those playing servants to choose where they'd like to come from, and give ideas for bios. :D As a royal, you must provide a kingdom, though as nobility, you're allowed to choose from the list below.) Illiend (Where we'll be taking place) Royalty: Amelia Antionette Leauve, Edwin Alexander Leauve -played by silverkiramoto- a rich country known most prominently for their gold mines, vibrant, lush forests, and cities brimming with musically-based culture. There isn't much this country lacks in the area of trade, but they're always looking to expand their horizons. Are you able to provide for that need? Xirillia Royalty: Sophia Louise Weiss -played by Haruka- a fairly large kingdom located north of Illiend.Half of the kingdom is covered in a clean white coat of snow,while the other half is a rainbow of flowerbeds.The kingdom is known for its tall ice palace,a.k.a the kingdom's main castle,and its eternal winter on the other half of the kingdom. Noban Royalty: Ranir Bervezli Aestolij In the country of sand, a land that goes by the name of Noban is ruled by a bloodline so ancient they were believed to have been born from the sand itself. Rich in the art of foreign trade, oil reserves, and the superior craftsmanship of valuable minerals into jewelry, decoratives, and clothing, it could be said that the kingdom is rather well off. The city is set within walls stretching tall and far all around, encircling like an embrace that protect its denizens from the harsh weather they often received and of attacks. Tralindale Royalty: Aurelia Odyssey Servants attending: Carwyn Dorten Tralindale is a very large kingdom which specializes in growing both regular produce but also magical produce. Tralindale ships produce to any kingdom and believes in sharing in their wealth and happiness. They are a very magical community that praises the arts and beauty. They believe in having everything aesthetically pleasing and lovely to the eyes. Nagali Royalty: Prince Hreza Birai'man Nobility:Lord Andrezja Barai'man Nagali Kingdom in the Swamp Regions The Nagali Kingdom is located in the murkiest, swampy regions of the land. The people their are generally close knit and don't take well to outsiders. They aren't openly hostile, they just don't warm up to others easily. However the Nagali Royals are working to mend this, by sending one of their own (Andrezja!) to hopefully find and wed a partner at this ball. Baladd Royalty: Princess Yevgeniya Skopin-Shuisky Far, far away in the north of Illiend, past Xirillia and even the Grand River of the Maine, lays the tiny kingdom of Baladd, empire of pure ice and snow. While the famous Xirillia is bound to beauty with its splendid architecture and flowers beds, Baladd's endless winter is rougher, harsher, a Zero Degree Living Hell some people say, which condemn the country to a poor population. Specialized in weaponry, logging and fishing, the people of Baladd are in constant war for control over the territory, may it be with the local tribes or the ice monsters, but remain in fairly good terms with the other kingdoms due to their political and commercial relationship. Syphas Royalty: May De'Beaumont amd Evan De'beaumont Syphas is located near the grasslands. The kingdom is large and summertime is the best time to visit. Syphas is brimming with gardens and fields, warm weather and clear skies. Syphas' main trade source would be fine silks and fruits and vegetables.
