Court of Iasi District

Current Court
Ruler: Oryon Rivers, White to Yellow Queen (Wren)
First Escort: Mykal Hrabe, Purple Dusk to Sapphire Warlord (Lene)
Steward: Soren Iliescu, Tiger Eye to Rose Prince (Zen)
Master of the Guard: Motshan Arenjesca, Tiger Eye to Purple Dusk Warlord Prince (Erica)

Master of Beasts: Marina Dantis, White to Rose witch (Myst)

Court Healer: Hanna Constantin, Yellow to Summer Sky Healer (DragonGirl)
Court Seer: Flavie de Beauvior, Summer Sky to Green Black Widow (Lene)
Court Priestess: Violeta Lahovary, Tiger Eye to Purple Dusk Priestess (Caryn)

Head Forester: Xander Miles, Landen Male (Wren)


Available Positions

Iasi District Court

Events Coordinator -
  • Recommended Caste: Priestess or Prince
  • Reports directly to the Steward.
  • Rookwood is one of the larger of the small villages that dot the mountains, and the only one that has it's own Queen, a place for visitors to stay, and a nice open central area for festivals and rituals. In the past few years, Rookwood has begun hosting holiday festivals and rituals that are completely open to all other villages in the district. The Events Coordinator would be a member of the Court and work closely with the owners of the inn and other members of the community to plan these events. Now that the village is the District Seat, the number of events will also be increasing as will the level of detail and planning expected.
  • The Events Coordinator should be someone who is proactive and not only plans the traditional events, festivals, rituals, etc. - but someone who can come up with other ways to involve the community, either in bringing the other villages together as one bigger community - or perhaps striving to bridge the gap between the country and all the culture happening down the mountain in the bigger towns and cities. Right now there is a rift between Country and City, and it would be cool to see someone who either purposefully widens that rift or tries to overcome the prejudices to make it smaller.
Second to the MoB-
  • No, that isn't Mother of the Bride, it's Master of Beasts - AKA, Mari.
  • Can be any Jewels, gender, caste, etc.
  • Reports directly to the Master of Beasts. The mountains are a dangerous place - and Mari is the one who sees to the defense against wild creatures as well as organizes the hunting parties and deals with poachers, illegal hunting, etc. Now her purview is the entirety of Iasi District, which means the entirety of the Simeria Mountains, and she needs a Second to delegate to and depend on.
  • This person should be an experienced hunter and tracker native to Iasi District. They do not need to be from Rookwood, but they should be known or be able to provide references from whatever area of the mountains they hail from.
  • Primary Plot contact and for this character is Myst, so if you pick up this character, please confer with her as you develop your concept!
Combat and Defense Trainer-
  • Reports directly to the MotG
  • Any caste/Jewels/gender
  • This person will be helping Shan train up the people not only of the formerly Rookwood, now Iasi District Court, but also the foresters (and other interested citizens) throughout the District in order to establish the groupings of the forthcoming more organized Iasi Defense Circle.
Squadron Commander-
  • See "Iasi District Guard Squadron" below
  • Reports directly to the MotG.
  • Should be someone with experience leading/performing in a guard/police-type capacity.
  • Can be any Jewels/caste/gender/etc.
Rookwood Inn and Tavern

Concept: In the last year or two, Rookwood has seen an increase in traffic for various reasons. Most of this traffic is between the other villages up in the mountains, or between them and the towns further down the mountain as people are traveling up and down the mountain for trade, schooling, etc. Because of where Rookwood is located, and it's higher stability and security present because of having a ruling Queen, it's become the stop-over place for travelers either heading down the mountains or if their on their way to Aechia Province, which is right across the river and down the mountains to the west. Oryon worked with the owners of the tavern and funded a reconstruction project for them to expand their establishment and make it an inn, to better suit the growing needs of the village. The inn completed it's construction sometime between spring and fall of 192 (up to whomever adopts the owner/s).

Since the move of the District Seat to Iasi during Winsol of 193, the inn has also been hosting many members of the shifting court as those retained from the old court sort out where to settle and/or how they are going to commute to the new Seat.

Owner(s) - (Reserved by Kellee until 5/5/2019)
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Staff-
  • Any caste, Jewels, gender, etc.
  • The old tavern was probably run by the owner with MAYBE one or two other part-time young people helping out here and there. With the expansion of the tavern into an inn there will be more help necessary. Potential jobs include but are not limited to: cook, waitress/waiters, bartender, housekeeping, maintenance, stablehand, etc.
  • This is a great place/occupation to put a character who has come to Rookwood/Iasi as a place to hide or heal. It will give them an IC routine/way to meet and interact with other characters while you engage their personal plots or entangle them in the greater goings-on of the village/district!
The Entrepreneur-
  • Any caste, Jewels, gender - but should be more Blood than landen.
  • This is an aristo or aristo-wannabe with a lot of money and a lot of ambition. They are native to Moesia/Iasi District but from the bigger towns down in the lowlands and see the move of the District Seat as a fantastic business opportunity and have come to the village in order to buy up land/establishments and make it the place to be.
  • Many of the locals are NOT okay with this interloper, even if they mean well (which, of course, is entirely up to the player who picks them up!)
  • They are currently residing at the inn.
The Iasi Defense Circle

Concept: The bigger towns down the mountain have their own guard regiments, but until now the mountains themselves have been fairly unpoliced/undefended - which, as one might expect, means that there's a bit of banditry and other such nefarious activities making the mountains unsafe for those who live or travel through there. As a part of Ory's overall cohesion effort to make Iasi a District that is more of a District rather than a bunch of random little towns, villages, and a lowland cities that operate independently of one another - she is forming the Iasi Defense Circle. It is made up of two primary factions: foresters and guards.

Foresters - The Iasi Mountain Patrol
Head Forester: Xander Miles
  • What doesn't a forester do? Iasi has quite a network of established foresters that already patrol the peaks and forests. They are trackers, hunters, wayfinders, and often the first and last line of defense for their home villages. However, up until this point they've all be acting independently and within whatever fluctuating territory they so choose - which means there are a lot of places up in the mountains with NO oversight, because they are not near enough to a village - or perhaps that village is only sometimes visited by a forester who calls his home somewhere else. In summer, there will be a meeting for all the foresters where Xander (and Shan) will assign specific territories to the existing foresters and decide the needs for recruitment.
  • Can be any gender/Jewels/caste and level of experience.
Guards - The Iasi District Guard Squadron
Squadron Commander: OPEN
  • Where the foresters are out in the wilds, the guards are stationed in specific towns/villages/posts throughout the District. The guards of the Iasi District Guard Squadron are separate from the guards who work privately for a town ruler or elected village sheriff and are employed directly with the District Court, reporting to the Squadron Commander, who is a member of the Iasi Court. Think of them kind of like the state police versus the local precinct.
  • Can be any gender/Jewels/caste and level of experience.
Spies-
  • Motshan has several Shaos on retainer to keep track of his interests and maintain a wary eye on the aristos throughout Iasi, not trusting them as far as he can throw them.
  • If you are interested in playing a spy, please contact Erica as she is the plot contact for this concept! Additionally - all Shaos must be vetted and approved by Rated Em.
The Mysterious Moonsteel

Concept: In the Summer of 193, Oryon discovered a huge network of caverns beneath the mountains. Within these caverns, she discovered a mysterious ore they are now calling "moonsteel" for it's particular shade of chrome-blue. This metal, they've found, is an incredible conductor for Craft (and maybe other things?) - but the limits and full uses of it are still being discovered.

Can I do someone who's staff for the inn - waitress or housekeeper probably - who would also fulfill one of the concepts for Nym's Alina?
I am who I make myself to be and I am the only one who doesn't know who that is.

Working on my character now, but as I have been working on Fears, Likes, Caste and such, I think he may be a good candidate for the Event Planner.
