Welcome to the OOC of Noble Houses, I will be your Narrator and will be in charge of making your journey into the Empire of Elysium as enjoyable as possible.
The first thing you must know is that you will be in charge of a whole bloodline, your initial character's bloodline, to be precise, laying law and protection on the more minor members and directly controlling yourself, your spouse and your Heir. With that will come exploration, managing and drama unlike anything possibly achievable with a sole character. Each character, playable or not, will have a set of three traits, five qualities and four flaws, the non playing characters of your bloodline periodically bringing resources, materials, information, knowledge or even events to you.
The world you will experience through the eyes of your characters will be the Empire of Elysium, lead by Emperor Judeon IV, a young and ambitious man set on complete domination of the known world. With technologies and tradition much like the Ancient Romans and Greeks, with some European flair to it, it is truly a land of both enlightenment and utmost strife. More information about the land and it's people will be given in game, so don't worry too much about it beside that your character is in some sort of alternate Antiquity.
You start the game proper as a Baronet, but a short Prologue will outline what your initial character will have done to warrant such a title. The character can be male of female, short or tall, warlike or scholarly, the only thing that matters is that you stick to it until their either die or are replaced with their future Heir.
That brings me to my next point: Yes, death is a possibility, so be careful of each of your playable characters!
Here are the basic rules of this RP:
Wait for me to respond before you make another post.
Respect the Posting order.
Be polite to all those who plays, and listen to what I say.
At least a good paragraph per post, please, that means five sentences at least!
Now, on to the Character Sheet:
Greetings, I am called (insert name of initial character here) and am a (character age) summers old (gender of character).
You may know me from (name you character's hometown here, be creative with the name!), where I was born and raised. My childhood was (adjective describing it) where I accomplished many things, on of the most remarkable being (a short story describing a feat your character did when they were young go here, don't hesitate to have fun with this one!). Those were simpler times.
I am to become a baronet under the orders of Emperor Judeon IV, who have noticed that I am (insert three traits of your character) and condoned me for my (insert five qualities). Though I have some flaws, such as (insert four flaws), I am confident in my abilities as a new Peer of the Empire.
This is the tale of my new Bloodline, my Noble House, and my Legacy.
So motes it be.
That done, you will have to wait for my approval and that done, will be free to chat in the OOC while you wait for the IC to go up. Above all, have fun!
