This rp is based in the medieval times of knights,castles, and etc. <p> There will be a maximum of seven kingdoms with each kingdom having a house to lead it. The 1st kingdom is The Kingdom of Erendelli. Their leading house is The House of Carnage. The second kingdom is The Kingdom of Slavania. It's leading house is The House of Slavic. The third kingdom is The Kingdom of Asperion. It's leading house is The House of Asmur. The rest of the kingdoms will come when more roleplayers join or if any rise to such a high power to rule their owm kingdom. <p> Next are the rules: <br> 1. If treason is committed, death is the acceptable punishment. The King or 1st General will kill the criminal. <br> 2. Alliamces can only be made between kingdoms, if the King or Queen officially signs the document aligning both kingdoms. <br> 3. Abuse of women or children will result to imprisonment. <br> 4. The King or Queen can be overthrown, if they don't meet the people's needs. <br> 5. War cam be declarded if only sparked by an important cause like assassination or conquering territory already claimed by other kingdoms. <p> Map: 1. A Welcome <br> 2. Bios <br> 3. Kingdom of Erendelli/House of Carnage <br> 4. Moutains <br> 5. Kingdom of Slavania/ House of Slavic. <br> 6. Enormous foggy swamp/lake <br> 7. Kingdom of Asperion/ House of Asmur. <br> 8. Great Desert of Trei <br> 9. Deore Savage Camp 10. Grasslands of Tempora <p> About this roleplay: <br> Your objective is to rule your own kingdom (seven kingdoms total), or serve as a soldier in the army, or be a peasant in the town. Either way, you will experience tye life a person from the medieval times. Alliances between foes will be made, true love will be found, and death will consume us all, but don't fret! You will go on advetures to save loved ones or fight in a war to protect your kingdom or even make bread to feed your family. Live. Fight. Love. Hate. Die. & repeat again! <p> Hope this rp is enjoyable and I am the only leader (House of Carnage/ House of Erendelli). <p> P.S.: I rp at night on Monday-Thursday around 9 & on weekend late. If you have any questions ask me, King Chraos!
