BLACKVALE


P L O T H O U S E S M A P

  • King Rowan has reigned over the Blackvale for the better part of 30 years along side his wife Visenya. The Castillon reign has been said to be the most fruitful reign the kingdom has seen in the better part of 5 centuries, bringing the nation back to wealth, power and respect. But no matter how hard Rowan tries, immortality is not an option so he has no choice other than to prepare his children to carry on the family name and further raise Blackvale. Unlike Rowan who married quite young right out of a war, his children are getting to the age where they need to marry and have children before it's too late. But Rowan and Visenya will not allow their children to marry just anyone in the kingdom, that's just not the way it is.

    Although Rowan has many years left to live, he desires his eldest son Rhaegar to be married above all others. Rumors have been spreading throughout the kingdom that there is becoming a greater desire for the King’s death. Word has started to catch that over half of the noble families are envious for the throne and will do anything for it. Rowan fears that sooner rather than later he'll be meeting his end, and he feels safer knowing that there is a rightful heir that is ready to take up the throne.

    With the need for the royal children to now get married, Rowan and Visenya decided there would be no better way to speed up the process would be to invite the noble families from the different lands of the Blackvale to the Black Keep. The noble families and their children will stay in the castle for the entire summer partaking in festivities, balls and feasts to allow their children to interact when they normally wouldn't. Rowan and Visenya decided to be somewhat fair to their children allowing them to choose whom they wish to marry but they only have until the end of the summer to decide. If they have not decided then Rowan and his wife will arrange a marriage for them.

    For the next summer the nobles from all of Blackvale will be together under one, rather large, roof. At the Black Keep drama will ensue as everyone lies and cheats their way closer to the throne. Families will push their children towards the royals to get closer to royalty, while others will plot against the king, the queen or other families. Old feuds will resurface, romances lurk around the corner and deception is imminent.
  • THE CASTILLON HOUSE

    lords of the vale, smithing and rulers of the blackvale


    The Castillon's are the ruling family over the Blackvale. They reside at the center of the kingdom in the Black Keep. Before them, the throne belonged to Xalvador Rotavele who was quickly leading to the ruin and destruction of the Blackvale. He squandered away 70% of the nation's wealth and sent much of the royal army into hopeless battles that ended in the deaths of a majority of the Vale's young. The citizen's were dying and restless, turning to the Lord of the North, Rowan Castillon to be their refuge. After nearly 5 years of battle, he usurped the King and took the throne for his own. Although Rowan was in love with another, he had no choice but to take Visenya, a daughter of one of the Lord's from the South, to be his wife.
    THE DAVERNY HOUSE

    lords of the misty isles, sailing and naval force


    The Daverny's are the least noble of the nobles. They have the titles of Lords and Ladies but upon meeting them you wouldn't think that is possible for them to actually be noble at all. They are in charge of 90% of the kingdom's ships and naval forces. Although Hector is a Lord, he hardly follows the title. He often plunders and pillages ports he docks at which is one of the main reasons for their families wealth. When Rowan discovered this, he only allowed Hector to remain the Lord as long as he didn't raid any ports, ships or cities in Blackvale. Since that day, the Daverny's have been gunning for the Castillon's for ruining their lawless and carefree way of life.
    THE THORNE HOUSE

    lords of the dark wood, wild life and witchcraft


    The Thorne's reside in the darkest and hardest to manage part of Blackvale. The Dark Wood has been known to claim more lives than anything else in the kingdom due to it's harsh terrain and labyrinth like layout. Only those who have grown up in the Dark Wood can navigate it with ease. The Thorne's are a very distant family in relation to the other nobles and generally dislike anyone that isn't in their own family. They have an unsavory desire for the throne and have been rumored to be plotting Rowan's assassination and working their way to ruling the kingdom through marriage with the Castillon's or killing them.
    THE THATCHER HOUSE

    lords of the south and the harvest


    The Thatchers are the Lords of the South, the vast land of fields that do a majority of the kingdom's farming and harvesting. It is the warmest and sunniest part of Blackvale that only has a two maybe three month winter which allows for a longer harvest year. The Thatcher's have always had a rather neutral standing when it comes to who sat on the throne. As long as the ruler did not interfere with what they did, they generally stood behind whomever was King. But that does not mean their children do not wish for more.
    THE GRAYSON HOUSE

    lords of the riverlands, fishing and the hunt


    The Graysons rule over the Riverlands in the East. The family has a rocky stance when it comes to the Castillons. Lord Robert stood beside Rowan in the war and still to this day is a close confident. Lady Elizabeth was in love with Rowan but after the war Visenya was arranged to marry the new king. Since then, Elizabeth has had a vendetta out for the Queen due to her still being madly in love with Rowan, while Robert is in love with her. This causes a rift in the family and often sends mixed signals to the children as to their feelings towards the rulers.
    THE MERCIER HOUSE

    lords of the north, battle and the royal army


    The Mercier’s have been very close with the Castillon's since before Rowan’s reign. Ramsey and Rowan were brothers at arms since they were boys, training and fighting alongside one another. When the reign of Xalvador had grown too much for either of them to stomach, Ramsey fought alongside Rowan and the other Lords, usurping the King and taking the throne. As payment for his unwavering loyalty, Rowan named Ramsey as the Lord of the North and Captain of the royal army. No one has more love for the Castillons than the Merciers.
    THE CHAMBERS HOUSE

    lords of the western bluffs, mining and masonery


    The Chambers have been the Lords of the Bluffs for centuries. They are some of the few who are able to navigate the vast mountainous area and use it effectively. They are known to live within the mountains mining and build vast networks of cities deep within the stone. Their allegiances have been in favor of Rowan for decades, even aiding him in his fight for the throne. But like many people in Blackvale, their opinions can be easily swayed to go against Rowan with the right persuasion.
    THE CAVALIER HOUSE

    lords of the eastmarsh, gold and wealth


    The Cavalier's are the Lords of the Marsh lands in the East. Lord James also fought along side Rowan when he usurped the throne 3 decades ago and has always supported his reign. But James' wife Beatrice has had her eye on the throne for many years. She is determined to marry one of her children to a Castillon and will 'take care of' anyone else, including a Castillon, who gets in the way.
