GMs: Diana & Ocha Accepting New Characters: APPLICATIONS CLOSED Until all current characters are in play. Posting Expectations: Frequent posting or you might be left behind. Characters CAN catch up! Rating: R For potential. >:D Genre: Sci-Fi Fantasy Atmosphere/Mood: A little bit of everything! Fast paced fights, drama, comedy, and fun! The Seven are an elite secret Imperial Guard for the current Vykendria royal bloodline. They have existed since the very first Oelamir King and are loyal only to blood heirs. The original Seven were chosen from the most skilled & talented warriors of the age by it's founder, a man part of the Previous King's bloodline. As years went on if one was lost, they were quickly replaced by another. Someone that was chosen as their successor, or chosen by the Head. Only Seven, Always Seven. Never more, never less. Present era Vykendria is an exciting developing time. Strange new technologies mixed with old world traditions. Imperial King Stephane Oelamir has been the most loved monarch in the past century along with his gentle Queen Genevieve. When blessed with their first child, it was a mixed emotion as Queen Genevieve died in childbirth. Saddened, the King did not remarry until nearly ten years later to an infamous Beauty, The Lady Amethyst. A lady whose face was so lovely, she enchanted all that saw her. Shortly after, the King's health started to decline drastically until one night he passed away, leaving behind his Queen as acting monarch until his blood heir daughter came of age. The new Queen was never able to bare a child, leaving the Princess Gwendolyn as the last living blood heir to the throne. The True Heir. In coming years, there were a few suspicious accidents, but the Princess was reaching age 20 and soon there would be the official coronation. The Queen Amethyst, not wanting to loose her ruling place set a plot in motion, framing the Princess for a diplomatic murder and sending her off to the prison to await a death sentence. With a kingdom enchanted by a beautiful Queen, none would defy her rule... except The Seven whose loyalties are pledged to only one life! The True Heir must be saved and the Queen's plots unfurled if Vykendria is to survive a coming war. As The Queen has no desire to stop with just ruling Vykendria. She wants the world. THE LAND OF VYKENDRIA In it's current era, Vykendria still holds on to old world traditions even as advanced technology has become and every day thing. Castles, quaint villages, horse carriages, fashion and other traditions are blended in with high tech weapons, machines, and power structures. Though magic has been a part of the world since the dawn of time, it has become old fashioned in favor for the less draining machines of today. Imagine a world like King Arther's, but throw in sci-fi tech in the mix. King Stephane has been dead for nearly 10 years, and the state of the country has started to decline under Queen Amethyst's rule. Everyone had hope that the mysterious Princess Gwendolyn would take the throne on her 20th birthday and continue the fair rule of her father. ....Until now! The news that Gwendolyn is responsible for murder and soon to be put to death has spread through the country like wild-fire. Everyone is in a state of unease about the future. ABOUT CHARACTERS & JOINING APPLICATIONS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED. We'll be taking on new characters once we get all of the current ones in play. :D Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Show Spoiler Hide Spoiler "The Seven" have all been cast or reserved. If during the rp one of the players for a Seven vanishes for too long(I'll give you a month, unless there's a problem), their absence will be a death and another character in play will become one of the Seven. So if you missed out on getting to be a Seven, just make a cool character, they might be chosen later as someone's successor. XD IF YOU HAVE A SEVEN: Remember that the Seven are SECRET. No one has ever known of their existence except blood heirs. Until now, where Gwendolyn never had the chance to be told about them... and recently the Queen has managed to discover them. Each of the Seven have a number they "inherited" from their predecessor, this number they use to identify themselves to other Seven members. Usually they will have a Tattoo or an Special Item that has the number in code. Because Vykendria has been at peace for so long, many of the former Seven have retired or died, thus explaining why many members of this generation's Seven are younger in age. (Younger being mid 20s to later 30s) Most of the Seven have never met each other. They keep in contact through their current Leader. (Rose Kingsley; #1.) A NON SEVEN CHARACTER: If you don't want to play one of the Seven, you also have the option to play anything else you want! It just needs to make sense! Fantasy races are allowed, so are sci-fi alien races, but alien races must be native to the planet. There are other countries in the world, so you don't need to be from Vykendria. Our three basic plots will be: -- The Castle where couple members of the Seven will be trying to catch the Queen in the act of doing something wicked so they can clear Gwendolyn's name. -- Out and about where members of the Seven are trying to keep Gwendolyn hidden and safe until they can return her to the castle. -- Citizens of Vykendria trying to decide if they are with the Queen and believe she can do no wrong, who is already starting plans to invade another country, or if they side with Gwendolyn and believe the True Heir is getting shafted and planning to revolt. MAGIC AND TECHNOLOGY You ARE allowed to have magic, just remember that it's "old fashioned" and not as common as high tech sci-fi weaponry. Again, imagine a world that looks a lot like the time of King Arther, with the castles, the knights, the forests and villages... but there's a lot of new tech mixed in. Laser guns, light sabers, machines. Vykendria's old world traditions are blending with new school tech.

Rose uses the moment as a distraction to get Gwen away and meet with Arthur. They're on their way to their first rest-stop. They will then meetup with Cervantes there, and make a quick escape from the city. Meanwhile, Queen Amethyst is confiding with her Huntsman about the Princess' escape. She will soon send him to seek out someone known as "Wolf" and make him a deal. Our day will end there, and we start the next day.
