Welcome to Blood Rites

We're thrilled that you've chosen to browse our site and hope you'll consider joining.

Blood Rites is an AU RPG set in the world of Anne Bishop's Black Jewels Series. Our focus at Blood Rites is on quality RP but particularly on plot and in depth storylines. We consider ourselves intermediate-advanced and have a 250 word count minimum for posts.

Still not sure?
Well here are some of the focuses here at Blood Rites that could help change your mind.

1. We focus on maintaining reasonable power levels. If you have never read Black Jewels this may not mean as much to you but for those who have played before, we do not require you to wear a Dark Jewel to be important here at Blood Rites. In fact, we give you perks for playing Landen characters and even host Jeweless Blood!

2. Our player base is small but our imaginations are not! We focus on stories here with the attempt being that no one has to create a character that doesn't suit the story. Of course you can power your own story but story is the heart of Blood Rites here.

3. Don't have to worry about us going somewhere. We have  been open since February 2010. With backups done bi-weekly there isn't a need to worry you will wake up and all your work is gone.

We hope you'll take some time to consider us. If you wish to do some more looking before you decide here are some extra, yet important, links:

Blood Rites is not your average RPG. We have a strong focus on plot and establishing plot elements in our stories.
