(Female partner required, Ancient fantasy setting)
=+=+= Setting =+=+=
Your character is the princess of a kingdom called Odrysia, or also the Grand satrapy. A nation locked between two mighty oceans to the east and west, a harsh desert to the south and the mountains of savage barbarians to the north. Society is split between the royals, the nobility, the free men and the slaves. Your character has lived in the royal palace of the capital all her life, living a cushioned and elegant lifestyle of luxury. Rarely did talk or events of the outside world affect your character in the slightest, the politics taken care of by the king and his lords.
As your character grew up in the ziggurat, palace, their every whim was attended to, even as the whims changed and so the attendance over time. From the age of fifteen, your character's responsibility as princess came about as they pursued a suitable husband. It was also around that time that your character became more involved in the court and started hearing rumors of events happening, words like 'slave uprising' and 'northern raiders' passed the lips of lords and captains and the numbers of grieving widows rose in the palace. In the years of your character's late teens, that was when your character learned of the Storm king.
Born in the northern mountains, beyond the border of the Odrysia, where mountains grow high and winter assaults the forests, a child was taken by grand satrapy slavers and raised to be a slave. The boy grew up toiling in shit covered fields of the Odrysian delta, beaten by many masters and watching people of his homeland work under the harsh sun and cruel whips.
A hatred for the grand satrapy burned within the child, scars littered his back as testament to his many escape attempts, he was much older when his escape under the cover of a slave uprising succeeded. The boy fled north, traveling many miles across the subtropical lands of the grand satrapy, until finally the sting of a cold winter touched his skin and thick forests and snow reassured the boy that he was finally safe. The boy was found by a band of northern raiders, who unsure of the boy's home adopted the lad, utilising his hatred of the satrapy as incentive to train the boy to become a warrior.
Years later, the boy had grown into a man, a fierce warrior and a noble leader. The people of the north had grown bitter at the loss of relatives and friends to the grand satrapy's slavers. The man with his adoptive family of raiders, began uniting the clans and tribes of northerners and rallied them from their homes to march against the satrapy. He was named the Storm king, for he was the storm that would wipe away the Odrysian's kingdom, and sure enough he did.
As battle after battle against the northerners came closer and closer to the capital and slave after slave rebelled and joined the Storm king, the situation for the Odrysian royals became more and more desperate. Your character's father, the king and his sons marched at the head of an immense army to repel the warhost of the Storm king. In the weeks that followed their departure, your character's mother prepared to flee across the western sea, the city walls and the defenses of the palace were bolstered and manned. Then the news of the battle came.
The king had died upon his chariot, your character's brothers dead at the hand of northerners spears and swords, the Odrysian army had been routed and all that was left to defend the city from the Storm king was its own defenses. Then from the immense balconies and windows of the palace could the banners be seen, blue and yellow flags and colours marked the warhost that prepared to lay siege to the capital.
Your character's mother, in the confusion of the port as many tried to make refugees of themselves, were separated. Now the last of the royal dynasty of Odrysia a choice has been presented to you, as the city's commander defended the walls with whats left of its army day in day out, what will become of you.
This is where the RP starts, just before the city is surrendered to the Storm king and with his army they will enter the city, ready to extract the spoils of war and reform Odrysia in their image. This is where your character comes into play.
Maybe you don't want to give up your life of luxury, maybe you don't want to live as a refugee across the western sea, maybe you think you can manipulate this storm king, use your means to persuade him to your way of thinking. Are you doing it for your self though or your people, and how are you going to keep to the ear of the Storm king, especially when many will try to usurp or remove you.
=+=+= Summary =+=+=
The basic idea of this roleplay is that you will play a princess who will assert herself on this storm king for whatever reason you want, a lady Macbeth sort of woman, a power behind and driving the man in her life. Why you do it will be up to you, I expect you will plot and kill to keep this position and believe me, there will be a lot of people who will be a threat to that.
This is a 18+ Rp. Violence, swearing, sex and everything else that happens in reality will be present here. If your okay with what you see in the 'a song of ice and fire' franchise, then you'll be alright here.
This is an ancient low fantasy setting, a lot of this Rp's setting will be based on the classical era of history, but in a fictional setting.
I'm looking for a mature female character, someone who doesn't mind writing at a casual to advanced level and with decent grammar and spelling.
This will be a via Private message Rp.
