    The year is 1455. England just lost the Hundred Years’ War to France, causing King Henry VI to suffer a nervous breakdown. Discontented nobles were already gathering their forces to challenge the weak king’s rule when Henry was struck down suddenly and inexplicably. Poison was suspected, but no one dared point fingers in the atmosphere of suspicion and uncertainty that descended on the court. With only two daughters left behind, a civil war seemed all but certain. The Queen fled to her native France, but her daughter and stepdaughter refused to follow her. The elder staunchly held her ground and claimed the throne, with a few family members and loyal lords lining up behind her. Her sister remained ensconced in her own house at Arundel Castle, neither supporting nor openly opposing her sister, but secretly plotting her eventual downfall. The Duke of York put in his own claim for the throne, based on his nearer relation to Edward III, and a variety of powerful families, mistrusting a female ruler, joined him.

    Will the young Queen successfully hold the country together? Will her half-sister succeed in her schemes? Or will the Duke of York overthrow them both and steal the throne for himself? The rest is up to you…

    This is an alternate history RP about power, rebellion, espionage, assassination, and pretty much any other kind of plotting and intrigue you can come up with! We diverge from history prior to the premise, and from there we can take it anywhere we want. Let’s try to stay mostly accurate to clothing, speech, gender roles, technology, titles and estates, etc. of the time, though. You can make your own characters or use historical figures, whichever you prefer. There are 3 set “main” characters, one of which I will play, and then the rest of the followers of each camp or neutrals you can all fill out as you like. Double agents, mixed loyalties, and people who change their loyalties throughout the RP are all welcome. Don’t just stick to lords and ladies – we need soldiers, spies, musicians, fools, guards, servants, etc. I also need some people who are willing to get their characters killed (cause, ya know, reality :P) - but I promise to only kill off those who mark that they are okay with it! And obviously in the end only one of the 3 mains will be left standing, so whoever plays those roles must also be willing to do a dramatic death scene at some point (probably quite late in the RP).

      Are you willing to let this character die during the RP?:

    • 1. No Drama Llamas. Ain’t nobody got time fo that. If you have a complaint take it to the GMs (@Kythera and @Shayla ), please don’t harass the other RPers.
      2. No God-modding or Meta-gaming! This is very important in this kind of RP – you will, obviously, be doing stuff to other characters at some point, so make sure you are working with your fellow writers to develop those scenes in a way that is acceptable to everyone. And stuff will be done to your character, too! Nobody is invincible, and drama and intrigue is what keeps the story going, so you have to be willing to be spied on, attacked, etc. at some point, too. Be very careful to separate what you know versus what your character knows. Some rules on specific situations:
      a. Spying/eavesdropping: Not possible in a private room (bedroom, office, closed meeting room, etc.) unless one of the conversing characters has let your char in (or you’ve worked something out with the writer whose character owns that room to allow your char to overhear).
      i. Always possible in public places (gardens, ballrooms, churches, streets, etc.) BUT you MUST have established that your character is in that location BEFORE the conversation starts (e.g. – your character is on the bowling lawn when two other characters walk into the adjoining garden. Your char can dive into the hedges and overhear their convo). Your char cannot teleport across London just because you know the Queen is whispering something important to her guard.
      b. Arrests/fights/deaths: MUST have the other person’s agreement in advance.
      c. Intercepting letters or messengers: another char (or yours) MUST have seen the letter given to the servant or heard where it is going. And still get the letter writer’s permission ahead of time – maybe their messenger knows crazy kung fu or something and could fight you off :P Obviously if your character is given the letter directly s/he can open it or send it to a different place than instructed.
      d. Put “A rose by any other name” at the bottom of your CS if you’ve read the rules.
      3. Activity – There’s no minimum, but just make sure you’re keeping up with the flow of the RP and your character isn’t getting left behind. Totally understand if RL comes up, but try to let us know if you have to disappear for a while.
      4. For initial posts wait for everyone to post their first one; after that wait at least 2 other posts before posting again with the same character.
      5. Quality over quantity, but no one-liners please. Other than that, so long as you make sure your character is actually doing something and moving the plot forward I’m not concerned about min or max length. Do use a spell-checker, though – I’m not going to be the grammar police, but if a post becomes unintelligible I may ask you to review it and make it more understandable for others.
      6. This is a non-libertine RP, so any sex scenes must be part of the natural plot progression and hidden by spoilers. (Remember - you may only do sex scenes with people in your same age group).
      7. Try to stay time-period appropriate with clothes, activities, locations, gender roles, technology, etc. You don’t need to write in old English (in fact, please don’t!), but try to avoid distinctly modern words and phrases. The one exception is racism and other bigotry – I don’t care if it would’ve been said back then, it’s not going in this RP. Some degree of period-appropriate sexism is okay, but don’t take it too far. If anyone feels offended by anything written just let the GMs know and we’ll ask the writer to scale it back. I’d much rather have everyone feel included and loved than have a perfectly accurate setting.

      Primarily used as a ballroom or reception hall for formal events.

      The Great Hall (open)

      [​IMG]

      Where we eat! You can pretend those benches are chairs, though. Almost all meals at Court are held here, though sometimes the Queen eats in her own private dining room and does not join the public meal.

      St. Stephen's Chapel (open)
      [​IMG]

      The chapel inside the palace. Cause we’re all too lazy to walk out back to the Abbey.

      Library (open)

      [​IMG]

      A public room open to all. Filled with scholarly works, histories, maps, religious works, etc.

      Public Study (open)

      [​IMG]

      Where the Queen meets with her advisers and officials.

      Guard Chamber (open)
      [​IMG]

      This is the first room visitors come to in the series of rooms leading to the Queen's apartments. Most guests can't get past this room. Many guards are stationed at the entrance to this room, and the exit into the public apartments, hence the name.

      Public Apartments (open)
      [​IMG]

      After the Guard Chamber are the Public Apartments, where the Queen meets more formal visitors, and where any nobles or important families can visit her during the day. Nobles resident at court will usual gather in this room after dinner every evening for dancing, music, drinking, etc.

      Painted Chamber (open)
      [​IMG]

      After the public apartments is the Painted Chamber, or the Queen’s private apartment, where she sits with her ladies-in-waiting and meets with advisers and officials during the day. Guards stand outside the doors, determining who can enter the private apartment. All her official advisers, and lords and ladies resident at court would be able to come in at any time, but visitors, servants, and other attendants would need to be expected or get the Queen’s permission to enter.

      Queen's Study (open)

      [​IMG]

      A private study attached to the Queen's private apartments where she conducts business, writes letters, or meets one-on-one with close advisers.

      [​IMG]

      For the Royal Family when they want to dine alone. Attached to the Queen's private apartments.

      Queen's Bedchamber (open)

      [​IMG]

      Finally, at the end of the Painted Chamber and attached apartments, is the Queen's bedchamber. The only person allowed in here without the Queen's explicit permission is her maid. But that doesn't mean close relations and friends wouldn't try to impose on her and come in anyway...

      Gardens (open)

      Bowling Lawn (open)

    |Anne of Lancaster|

    This royal throne of kings, this sceptr’d isle,
    This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
    This other Eden, demi-paradise,
    This fortress built by Nature for herself
    Against infection and the hand of war,
    This happy breed of men, this little world,
    This precious stone set in the silver sea,
    Which serves it in the office of a wall,
    Or as a moat defensive to a house
    Against the envy of less happier lands;
    This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England...




    | General |




    Name:
    Anne of Lancaster


    Role:
    Queen


    Faction:
    Lancaster - Queen


    Sex:
    Female


    Age:
    24


    Place of Residence:
    Palace of Westminster



    | Appearance |

    Height:
    5’7”


    Body Type:
    Anne is slim, with a straight figure and long arms and legs. Her nurse always told her she would never bear children easily with hips as narrow as hers.


    Hair:
    Chestnut brown


    Eyes:
    Grey


    Skin:
    Pale ivory


    Facial Features:
    Anne’s face is long and ovular, with a square, stubborn cleft chin. Her forehead is broad, and her brown brows fairly straight and thin. Her eyes are round and very shallow-set, and when she loses her temper they seem to bulge out. Her nose is long and thin, but with a slightly bulbous tip, inherited from her father. Her mouth is narrow in width, but her lips are quite thick, and relieve the harshness of the rest of her face with a sensual quality. When she smiles her whole face seems to change, from stern and unforgiving to warm and soft.


    Clothing Style:
    Elegant but restrained. All Anne’s clothes are of the highest quality and style, but she dislikes overly ornate embellishments.

    [​IMG]
    | Personality|


    Intelligence Level:
    Medium-high; knows she’s not as smart as her sister and is very sensitive about that fact.

    Personality Traits and Flaws:
    A Princess of the Blood from birth, Anne has always known her place in society. Without being particularly arrogant or vain of her personal traits, she is yet haughty and has a commanding presence that can be developed only through years of superiority. But the Palace of Westminster has never been a safe or warm environment, and so Anne has inculcated, through years of living through plots, wars, suspicion, and deceit, a certain paranoia and independence. There is hardly anyone she trusts completely since the death of her father.

    In particular, Anne distrusts and fears her sister. She has always been jealous of and competitive with her half-sister, and now, when the crown is in question, more so than ever. She knows her sister is cleverer than her, and has always been better able attract people to her side. Whether Isabella is just naturally more charismatic than Anne, or, as Anne believes, she is just very easily able to dupe people with the cloyingly innocent façade that she periodically puts on for show, her sister has just somehow always been able to make everyone believe and trust in her instead of Anne.

    Anne has a natural ambition and thirst for power, by which she has been particularly driven ever since she realized her father was never going to have a son. As soon as the first hint of possibility of her succeeding to the throne arose, she has been compelled by it, and now desires more than anything to rule the country. She has a controlling and [outwardly] confident demeanor, and genuinely believes she will be a good Queen. She is energetic and determined, but also dutiful to her country and to her family.

    Fears:
    - Her sister
    - Poison (since her father’s death)
    - Being pushed out of power
    - Being a bad ruler and failing her family

    Quirks/Habits:
    - Feeds all her food to her Great Dane before eating it herself
    - Touches the tip of her nose when she’s thinking about her family
    - Takes out her rosary and runs her fingers over the beads when she’s angry and trying to control her temper
    - Has terrible handwriting, only her sister can read it very well

    Skills/Talents:
    - Speaks French, Latin
    - Very knowledgeable about the history of England and the Plantagenets
    - Sings fairly well
    - Dances gracefully
    - Excellent on horseback, always hunted with her father

    Goal:
    To rule the country well for the rest of her life

    Motivation:
    Power/ambition, and duty to her family and her country

    Soft Spots:
    - Her Great Dane, Molly
    - The Church (she’s quite pious)
    - Anyone who makes her feel like she is smart, and doesn’t try to tell her how she should do things or dictate to her​


    | Background |


    Place of Birth:
    Westminster Palace

    Family:
    Daughter of King Henry VI and Queen Elizabeth Beaufort, daughter of the Duke of Somerset. Mother died giving birth to her, and the King remarried a few years later, giving her a stepmother and half-sister. Family line is the Plantagenets, House of Lancaster.

    History:
    Anne was born and raised a Princess of England. She lived most of her life at Westminster Palace and Windsor Castle, with the best tutors in the land. Though her father never expected her to inherit the throne, always planning to have a son, she was nevertheless well-educated in the history of England, foreign relations, and various affairs of state. Her weak area is and always was economics – she has never been able to grasp the job of the steward and the system of taxes and feudal obligations of the nobility.

    Anne’s mother died giving birth to her, and her father remarried when she was three, to a French princess. They gave birth to another daughter, Isabella, when Anne was four years old. Isabella was always petted and loved by both parents, and Anne, lacking a mother to stand up for her and frequently subject to her step-mother’s jealousy, was left to make her way on her own.

    When Anne was 15 her father arranged a marriage for her with the Prince of Castile, but before the marriage could take place the prince died of dysentery. He next tried to betroth her to the King of Denmark, but lengthy 2-year negotiations broke off with a diplomatic squabble and no betrothal. Finally, seeing the end of the Hundred Years’ War in sight, Henry planned to include a marriage between Anne and the Crown Prince of France as part of the peace treaty. This betrothal was agreed to and signed at the time of Henry’s death, when Anne’s ascendency to the throne threw everything into uncertainty.

    Personality

    Intelligence level:
    Quick Witted ~ Wise & Devious


    Personality traits and flaws:
    Protective ~ She will allow no harm to befall her court and will without a second thought rush to their side and take down any who would dare trespass and or challenge her authority.

    Brave ~ Bella fears little in her life to be honest. She will take any challenge and face it head on without a moments consideration in mind and do instantly what is for the best of everyone.

    Gifted ~ She was a gifted lyrical songstress from the day of her birth. It flowed naturally from her lips and became a devoted love and passion of her's.

    Intelligent ~ She is extremely smart and very quick witted in all things she puts her mind to. Can be very inventive and excellent with planning and strategies and opportunities to rise above that of her sister Anne .

    Caring ~ She care's greatly for her friends , Court & family. She would be willing to die for them without a second thought and place herself on the line for the better being of the Court

    Loyal ~ You earn her trust and you will always have it without any questioning by her. It may take sometime especially if you are one with the Queen and or Duke's Court

    Just ~ When it come's to choice's and decision's faced within her Court she always proceed's to answer and settle all things fairly based on the want's and needs of the younger and older generations.

    Spontaneous ~ Bella loves to do spur of the moment things.. She believes you should live your life to the fullest no matter what the case at hand is and or the set limits.


    Hopeless Romantic ~ Yes , she like every girl dreams of finding her true love and she won't go announcing that to anyone. She has yet to be in love and shy's away from it greatly. Everyone needs love and in time she preys to find it.

    Charming ~ She can turn on the charm and flirtatious side when the time calls upon it to get out of a tricky situation.. It can be plenty of fun at times for sure to her and you can always tell by the gleam in her eyes she enjoys it.

    Firm Handed ~ Of course she wants her friends and younger generations to learn from her. But , in life the discipline and training she places herself through she will do it upon the others. She does not want them weak and one must push themselves to be a far cry from it at times.

    Swordswoman ~ She is very keen and deadly when she has a blade in hand.. No matter the kind it is all but a matter of time until she master's it completely with grace. It was what her father truly wanted her to learn an art and form within.

    Trickster ~ Loves to play games and toy with people. Due to her abilities she can quickly pick up and sense other's weaknesses and such to declare upon what ways she can manage or keep them under her keen playful eye's. This is a rare side to be seen and can only be witnessed by that of her friends or advisers.

    Gentle ~ She has a soft spot she doesn't show most...She adore's children and she deal's with the knowing she may never be able to be a perfect mother in the future.. She can often be found outside playing with the younger members of the Court every now and again in her spare time.

    True Born Leader ~ Watching that of her father as a child greatly inspired her in many a faction in life. It taught her to be brave and bold in all that she attempted and to never lose faith in a dire time. From this day , it is a set of laws she herself lives by in all aspects of life.

    NEGATIVE TRAITS
    Secretive ~ Bella often doesn't say much on how she is feeling and will keep it hidden if she feels it to be the right thing to do at that time. In her mind she believes that her feelings are minor and not truly something that need to be said aloud when there are higher priorities about to be handled and dealt with.

    Darkness ~ Within her grows a darkness unlike any other. It is desperate to consume her soul and fill her fully with wicked and evil ways. It is why she must be so strong and cold hearted to make sure it can never overrule who she truly is.. It is a trait similar to that of her own mother , Kathleen.

    Hotheaded ~ She can become slightly hot headed when people push her buttons far to long and hard. Which than drives her to her own breaking point of patience.

    Guarded ~ In her entire life span there has not been a single day in which she has not been guarded and or defensive on divulging others who do not know of her past. In her opinion , she has been constantly been told that her mother was of the greatest shame upon her family at times. No matter how greatly the little girl tucked within loved her.. It is a topic she fears facing and or talking upon and one she will lash out on with fluid ease.

    Queen Bitch Tendency ~ Don't take it personally when you choose to anger her.. All that time of training of course taught some self control. Yet , when ticked off or driven to anger she will go full Bitch Mode on someone's ass. She hates and loves to be tested due to the fact she enjoys her bad ass side.


    Fears:
    Dying at the hand of her Sister or the Duke
    Her mother being murdered or slain
    Losing power and control over her Court.
    Never truly falling in love


    Quirks/habits:
    ~ Often when of great nerves and or worry , she will pace the room and twine her darkened curls in a repeated tugging process in her fingertips.
    ~ When greatly angered , she will often take off on horseback to take a small ride and or hunting trip in White Hall Woods.


    Skills/talents:
    ~ Swordfighting
    ~ Poisons
    ~ Horseback Riding
    ~ Writing
    ~ Sweet Talk or Silver Tongued Charm
    ~ Research
    ~ Speaking in Russian , German , French , Portuguese and Gaelic
    ~ Animals
    ~ Men
    ~ Speeches

    ~ Acting/Masking Emotions

    ~ To do away with that of her own sister , Anne and of that of her once lover , The Duke. It is her want to paint the ground crimson with that of their blood and to watch the life leave their eye's.
    ~ Slowly worming her way into the Enemy Courts and gain full control , little by little.


    Motivation:
    Is found mainly in knowing what her father's hopes , dreams and aspirations were. Knowing all to well that Anne would be incapable of meeting the goal and desired actions of the kingdom. She will become the Queen her Father knew she could be and to do away with the improper and unbalanced views of Anne.


    Soft spots:
    Children
    Talk of her Father
    Her Court
    Her Pets
    Her mother/At times..

    History
    From the time he was young, he was always a looker. Cass could turn heads and distracted many of the servants around the house. As he got older he was only more noticed. A Lady and her carriage were out one day touring the county side, and spotted him in the filed, Shirt off and well fetching body. She called him over and asked his name. She them took him in the carriage and back to the castle. That was the last time he saw his family. He was taken under the arms of one of the sergeants in the castle to be trained in all ways of high standing in the presence of the High Courts. Needless to say he frequently got into trouble bedding the women of the castle, and possibly having a scandal or two of his own. But that didn't stop him from making his way to where he wanted to be. He gained favor with the Queen and was granted his own lands and a place at her Court, along with Master of the Hunt

    PERSONALITY TRAITS & FLAWS
    Amara is the type of woman that will encourage you to go for what you want but at the same time she'll be right behind you, waiting to see you fail and conquer over you. She loves to make others feel great about themselves just to take them down afterwards. She's very vindictive and has a mean streak like no other. When someone has ever tried to manipulate her... they usually end up missing and no one knows how it happened and they are never heard from again.

    Amara can play many roles, she can be the submissive "wife" or the assertive and domineering "queen" of her Desert Lands. She loves to analyze others and find out their weaknesses and strengths and use them for her own benefit. She knows how to get her way without getting caught in the act, she has a way with words and knows how to get out of situations that would usually end up deadly for others.

    Amara knows that she is probably one of the sexist women on the planet and she knows how to use her sex appeal when her Intelligence and Mind Games aren't doing the trick. She has seen how women can take down a whole Kingdom just by laying with the right men and making them their little puppets to use for whatever they please. Amara can get her way with her mind and/or her body and she has never gotten denied, yet. She's very seductive and sultry, knowing that she can just walk into a room and not have to say a word and all eyes will be on the Mysterious Exotic Looking Woman. Gaining the right people's attention has granted her access to many stories and many secrets that others would kill to know.

    Playing her cards right and knowing when to let a secret slip from her beautiful and deadly lips has kept her around for longer than she would have lived if she didn't play the right cards at the right time. Her mind is like a vault of secrets and horrible things, she knows a lot about other citizens that most would be shocked to find out. A pretty woman can unseal even the tightest of mouths with just the use of her own mouth. She can be very moody and very aggressive when things seem to not go her way, she has been known to slice a few male's members off when they dared to lay a hand on her. She's not a truly submissive woman, she merely acts like one to get on the good side of others and then her true and evil side comes out and by then... it's too late to get rid of her.

    FEARS
    Her own secrets coming out one day...


    QUIRKS/HABITS
    Amara has a habit of licking her lips when she has an evil or vindictive idea in that twisted mind of hers. She can't hide her evil side for too long and only a few were ever so unlucky to truly see the evil behind those seductive hazel eyes.

    Amara's laugh is a bit... odd to say the least, it's truly the laugh of a witch. She rarely laughs because when she does, she gets attention that she doesn't need.

    General
    Name: Tyrius Vahlan

    Role: Knight/Bodyguard/Enforcer/Right Hand

    Faction: The Duke of York

    Sex: Male

    Age: 21

    Place of Residence: The Duke of York's castle


    Appearance
    Height: 6'2
    Body type: Muscular
    Hair: Black
    Eyes: Emerald Green
    (Below three are optional; can just say same as FC)
    Skin: Ebony
    Facial Features: A cleanly trimmed goatee
    Clothing style: Tyrius normal sticks to his armor even with formal occasions as he is always on his toes.


    Personality
    Intelligence level: 8.5/10
    Personality traits and flaws:
    Tyrius is the epitome of what a soldier should be, strong-willed, cunning, adaptable, compliant, and assertive. The years of his captivity as it'd be called to better suit the terms, molded and shifted him like a clay to then be carved into the man he is now. But this knight does as a few chinks in his armor, his anger is one of those, Tyruius holds a hatred for the English so deep seated, the mere mention strikes a nerve with him as he's forced to recollect the seeds of his past now sewn into his present and becoming future. He is also a paranoid and watchful man, always on his guard, something that serves as both a flaw and a trait.

    Fears:
    Tyrius is a man that has faced the horrid oppression of slavery, to say that he doesn't fear is ludicrous, he does indeed fear but the prideful knight would never show it. His fears are yet to be seen as it seems.


    Quirks/habits:
    Skills/talents:
    -Tyrius shows a very unique comprehension of swordsmanship originating from both England and France.
    -The knight also shows an understanding of massive military battle strategy and tactics.
    -Map reading is also another notable skill the man possesses.
    Not only his he strong but just as fast, exhibiting a surprising level of physical prowess to catch his enemies off guard and end them.


    Goal: To gain the respect of the French people.
    Motivation: Tyrius seeks to prove himself as a knight, to be respected as all others are. Given his skin color he is judged and harassed almost at a constant, his ambition is to revered as a champion knight as opposed to some kind of savage mongrel as the Englishmen and women described him in his time of slavery.
    Soft spots: Children


    Background
    Place of Birth: England
    Family: His deceased mother and father
    History: Tyrius was born a slave under the rule of his English superiors, luck granted him mercy from his owners as they'd be called, thanks to his parent's willingly giving their lives so their son could live on to be raised by his English foster parents, treated as a slave throughout his years starting at the age of 5, upon reaching 15 he learned the truth after searching within his 'room' or, the basement. The young African male's find was disturbing to say the least, his parents shackled just behind the wine cellar's entrance, their bodies nothing but prettified skull and bones.


    Relationships
    Spouse:
    Friends: The Duke of York himself
    Enemies:
    Lovers: You'll see
    Exes:
    Relatives:
    Abel and Myrabelle Vahlan
    Are you willing to let this character die during the RP?: I think I'd prefer near death experiences but should he die I would like it to be pretty epic.

    Father - Christopher (40)
    Mother - Joan (Deceased)
    Twin Brother - Thomas (19)
    Brother - Clement (25)
    Brother - Simon (23)
    Brother - Myles (20)
    History:
    Born to Viscount Christopher Northwood, Thomasin was a disappointment at birth. She was a twin and considered by her father and older brothers, the lesser half. Her father only wanted sons carrying his name and was ashamed to have been given a daughter after four healthy sons.

    As a child, Thomasin spent the majority of her life watching her father and brothers from afar, while being taught and trained to be a proper young lady, by her tutors. (Her mother was a frail woman who after so many births was deemed to be bedridden for the remainder of her life.) With the absence of both parents in her life, Thomasin tried very hard to become a proper young lady but also to gain the attention and approval of her father.


    Unfortunately, Thomasin's mother fell ill and the doctor deemed her unable to save. Despite his cold exterior, Thomasin's father adored his wife and spent her last days trying to make her as happy and as comfortable as possible.

    One day, one of Thomasin's brother did a wonderful thing and assisted a Duke who's carriage had broken down on the road. To reward this kind deed the Duke offered to elevate the status of one member of the Northwood family. Thomasin's brother was already apprentice to a reputable physician, so he could not take the offer, and Thomasin's other brothers were soldiers to the crown and it would have been shameful if one of them was to be promoted without actual improvement. Thomasin's mother begged her husband to elect their only daughter for the reward, and her husband reluctantly agreed.

    Thomasin was swept away to the Palace of Westminster to become a lady in waiting to princess Anne. Although she was training to be Princess Anne's lady in waiting, Thomasin always found herself drifting towards her lady's younger sister, Princess Isabella. WIP
