Announcements / Chaillot Open for Petition
« on: May 28, 19, 12:39:52 PM »
Chaillot is Open for Petition

We are inviting members of the community to consider petitioning to be Plot Leader for the Territory of Chaillot.
 
Resource Threads for the Petition:

Established Culture Threads:

Important Notes about Petitioning Chaillot:
  • This will be the 5th Ruler in Chaillot within 7 years, so please keep this in mind when addressing your ruling characters and succession.
  • Landens play a large part in Chaillot and should be considered when creating the Petition and the varying elements within.
  • Ruler should be Light Jeweled (Purple Dusk or lighter) as this is a huge element to the history of plotting in Chaillot.
  • Though the last Plot Lead characters did begin fighting a civil war, Etienne Roux is still canonically ruler of Chaillot at the time of this Petition. Any new succession plan should begin with him in place.

If there are any questions about the Petition process or expectations please do not hesitate to reach out to the HBC directly at: hbc@bloodrites.net

Caste: Warlord
Birth Territory: Dena Nehele
Home Territory: Pruul

Birthright Jewel: Uncut Tiger Eye
Offering Jewel: Cut Purple Dusk
Appearance


Play By: Richard Madden
Distinguishing Features: Cutter's a strange mix of the long-lived and short lived, as his golden eyes definitely show his heritage, but his time in the mines and the fair skin of Moesia has watered down what would otherwise be telling marks of one of the long-lived. His curly hair and scruff that desperately wants to be a beard likewise betray such a normally dominant trait, but his mother's blood just runs strongly in the man.

Cutter's body is in top physical form despite his penchant for drink. Nonetheless the outspoken Warlord is covered with scars, be they from knife fights, brawls, or lashings from the Geiba, his body is a canvas of physical violence done unto his flesh.

Personality


Personality: A raucous ruffian, Cutter is a man with a loud mouth, deep love of money, and a heart of gold. Having grown up with an affectionate mother and a stern father, he's aware of what interpersonal love is, but he's gone without it for so long it's a distant memory. Some could easily define him as a brute, and it's not far off, as Cutter is a physical person. He acts out his statements with his hands, slams things for emphasis, prefers the sassier whores of Red Moon Houses who scratch and punch, and would rather have a hand on a friend's shoulder or hug them in greeting than stand apart. He's loud and a touch obnoxious, as he tends to bluntly speak his mind whether it's welcome or not. Protocol and he are acquainted, but they're distant associates and only see one another when it's deeply required.

A bit of a lush, Cutter is a fine connoisseur of the cheap spectrum of alcohol that has up until his time in the Mines been a constant part of his physiology. He loves knives and blades of all sorts, having served as a stint as a blacksmith, and appreciates fine craftsmanship, especially the Pruulian Khanjar, which he's not yet had the opportunity to inspect.. Cutter's an avid competitor, even if it's something as silly as a drinking contest, and though he may be a snarly sort of rival, he's a gracious loser and a fairly good sport. He's particularly fond of music, and will often hum or burst into song out of nowhere, though most place the blame of this on his drink.

Cutter's extremely possessive of the mineborn, especially Nima. They are the only family he has, and he has watched over them since they were children. He growls at or physically accosts anyone who attempts to touch them (ESPECIALLY Nima) and though he may seem harmless when he's laying about drunk, those who've tried find him a disturbing menace who's much quicker than they anticipated. The only one of the Mineborn whom he generally doesn't get along with is Lucky, as the young Warlord Prince and Cutter vie constantly over Nima's attention. Cutter has seen the hungry stares of the young man at his child Queen and he'll have none of it until after she's had her Offering.

There is a dark side to Cutter, of course. One who spent three decades in the Mines could not escape without it. His Killing Edge rises quicker and harder than it had in years before his interment in the Geiba's hellhole. Now it at times rises in the blink of an eye, laughing one moment and the next walking that cold clarity of death that comes to a man meant to protect a Queen. In his private moments away from Nima (they are few) he finds himself uncomfortable and drinks until he passes out: A difficult task, but not impossible given his Light Jewels. He's begun seeing a Black Widow at the Citadel to try to mend his dreaming, which are dark and filled with the images and sounds of the Mines.


Likes:
  • Nima: She's some sort of hybrid of Queen, little sister, and daughter all rolled into one. Nima is the person Cutter shares his penchant for dirty jokes. She is the girl that he loves but would never take advantage of. She is the person he would hurt anyone or do anything to protect. She is his only friend in the world, and she is the only Queen he'd be willing to swear his life to.

  • Drinking: Cutter loves alcohol. He loves its rough taste, the fire it puts in the gut and in the throat, and he loves the freeing sensation that being drunk gives. In some way he uses it as a coping mechanism for the trauma of being in the mines, but Cutter was a drinker before that. He considers it a blessing from the Darkness that his descent is not so deep in the abyss that it takes an enormous amount of alcohol to get him drunk.

  • Learning: Perhaps more than even drinking, Cutter loves to learn. He is an avid reader and actually quite well read before his internment within the mines. He is eager to absorb all that there is to know about Pruulian culture, and eagerly looks forward to the Trials of Acceptance to place him as a full fledged member of the society that houses them at the Citadel.

    Dislikes:
  • The Geiba: Towards the end of his internment it wasn't so bad, but Cutter vividly remembers the horrors of the mines at the start of his presence there. He still bears every scar given to him, his lungs always feel a little heavier, and his hands feel like leather thanks to prolonged exposure to all of the salt in the mines. It wasn't enough that they were broken and taken down by Saiph and Erisian. If it was up to Cutter every last one of them would be dead, even the ones that were collared for their useful crafting abilities.

  • Salty Foods: Because Cutter had an enormous amount of exposure to salt, he now prefers only bland and sweet foods, and any sort of salty food he tastes he'll spit out immediately. And probably punch someone for serving him that shit.

  • Sand: It's coarse, it's bright, and it gets everywhere. He can't escape finding sand in his shoes, or his armor, or even in his pants. It's one of the things he really dislikes about Pruul in that there's sand everywhere.

    Fears:
  • Nima's Death: Without Nima Cutter would have no direction, no friends, and only a distant, removed father for family. Cutter's not even certain his father is alive, let alone willing to talk to him. Truthfully, Cutter's most afraid of Nima's death because he would have failed Rose twice.

  • Snakes: Why'd it have to be snakes? (This may seem inane, but consider Saiph's new snake pets...) This is a remnant of some of the dark cult activity he saw in Raej wherein snakes were used to particularly gruesome effect. Plus they don't have hands, that's just bothersome.

  • The Mineborn Destiny: The Mineborn were all prophecised to have a great destiny ahead of them, one that was worth raising them through the mines and for the Geiba to avoid their usual doctrine of aborting any children that were to be born. But that prophecy has not yet fully revealed itself, and it keeps Cutter up at nights trying to figure out what it is or what it could be. His close association with Nima is central to this, as he's not one of their group and it's not clear what role he'll have to play in that destiny. Cutter's most afraid that he won't be part of it at all.

    Craft Strengths:
  • Physical Enhancement: A brawler of the toughest caliber, Cutter is exceedingly good at this aspect of combat craft. He can run longer than most people, fight harder, take more punishment, and just all around be one tough son of a bitch.

  • Item Enhancement (Sword): Part of his nickname stems from this, as Cutter's able to make any bladed weapon he picks up intensely strong and powerful. His weapons can shear through Combat Shields, Stone, and Steel.

    Craft Weaknesses:
  • Stealth Craft: With how loud and obnoxious he is? Forget it. Cutter's approach to things is kicking the door down and getting things done.

  • Social Craft: We see the aforementioned solution to problems, we apply that to social situations. Cutter tends to be painfully blunt and has no patience for social niceties, even Protocol.


    Life Story

    Family:
    Mother: Clara Rosminov (Summer Sky to Opal Black Widow) Deceased
    Father: Ishmael Santiago (Summer Sky to Broken Green Warlord Prince)


    History:
    Abraham Santiago was born the only child of Ishmael Santiago, a Warlord Prince of Dhemlan Terreille, and Clara Rosminov, a Black Widow whom had only recently received her offering when she fell into an affair with Ishmael. Ishmael had survived the Purge and the occupation of his homeland with scars both psychic and physical, but the hale Warlord Prince was not so quick to give up his wanderlust or his desire to see the world just because he'd lost his descent jewel in the Purge. When Ishmael met little Clara he was struck by her beauty and her vibrancy, and the lusty young Widow could not restrain her own desires for a dashing foreign man who was both well learned and practically immortal.

    They wed after a brief courtship that angered her mother but excited her father given that Ishmael was a man with his own fortunes. It didn't take more than a year for Clara to become pregnant, a prospect that surprised Ishmael and set him to worry, as he'd never expected a child in his life, let alone one from a short-lived bride. Abraham was born with much joy from his parents but little from the rest of his family, as though Abraham (named after Ishmael's grandfather) held the lighter coloring indicative of his short-lived family, he held his father's golden eyes and was a reminder that he'd live past all of them.

    The three grew up together in a happy home, more or less. Abraham always had a tough bit of time in his schooling and with other children due to his lineage (children can be especially cruel to those whom are different), but his mother was supporting and warm and his father took an interest in teaching him all that was necessary for a young Warlord. His Tiger-Eye birthright surprised his parents whom both bore a Summer Sky, especially given that his father had once carried the Green. That particular development brooked a rift between father and son, and Abraham would forever believe he'd earned the disappointment of his father by standing above him in the Abyss. Nonetheless his mother remained a loving presence in his life, and he grew up constantly trying to please his father to earn back that love. Because of this Abraham excelled in school, becoming a bright boy who was quick to devour any sort of knowledge he could get his hands on, and physical activity.

    When he was sixteen his mother was killed in an accident, a duel between two Dark Jeweled aristocrats that wen astray. Though both men were punished the damage as one, and their household of three became a household of two. Broken hearted, Abraham fell into a deep depression, one that he lingered in for a year before his father interceded and told him a truth of his existence that he'd remember for the rest of his life:

    Your mother will be but the first you care of that you will outlive. You are gifted with my bloodline, and in that all of the short-lived people you know will grow old and die before you. You will live to see their children and children's children grow old and die before age starts to weather you. It is your blessing and your curse, one that you must come to terms with.

    After that, it took a few more weeks for Abraham to shake off his depression, but on the day of his Offering Ceremony, guided by a Priestess, he felt that his mother was there, urging him on somehow. That day he descended as deep into the Abyss as he could, and when he emerged with a Purple Dusk he now stood deeper than his father, who for the first time since before his birthright, looked upon him with pride.

    Ishmael lingered in Dena Nehele for another year, but the truth was that he missed home and he felt empty without his dead wife. On Abraham's twenty first birthday Ishmael gifted him a small sum of money, and told him he was returning to Dhemlan to care for some unfinished business. He urged his son to make his own way and not follow him to the territory of Ishmael's birth. Abraham took his bag of money and tried to find work in Dena Nehele, but the territory was traditionally bad for anyone who wasn't an aristocrat. He soon ran out of money, and turned to joining the Jack's Guild for a small stint of time, where in he did a number of jobs for money, food, and shelter, but found the existence ultimately unrewarding. One night he'd been in a bar playing cards with a trader from Raej, who told him of the unparalleled opportunity in the Territory which dealt with so many slaves and trading from the shadow realm of Kaeleer. Intrigued by seeing more of the world, Abraham joined up with the merchant as his bodyguard in exchange of some of the winnings he took from the man.

    Changing his name to "Cutter" (a nickname he'd picked up in the Jack's Guild) he served as a mercenary bodyguard, slave trader, and part-time strong-arm for many of the gangs of Raej. The shadowy, deeply religious territory was far more interesting to Cutter than Dena Nehele ever had been, and the mercenary enjoyed the steady income he grossed with his work. Red Moon whores, booze, and gambling were all outlets for him, and for nearly a century Cutter honed his crafts of killing, brawling, card counting, and intimidation to make him a renowned presence in the area.

    However it was his penchant for both drink and cards that would lead him to the only woman he'd honestly said he loved. One evening under a fool moon Cutter was especially drunk and in deep into his pockets during a card game. When a man who'd mocked him for the last twenty minutes during their game won and took all of his money, Cutter flew into a rage and accused the man of cheating. This escalated into a shouting match until Cutter broke his bottle of whiskey, leaped across the table, and cut the man's throat with jagged shards of glass protruding from his improvised weapon. Subsequently he was clamped in irons and given to the Geiba, stripped of his money and his jewels, and sent to work in the mines until he perished.

    A creature of adaptation, Cutter despised the Geiba and the mines, but did not fall into a depression and melancholy that so many were succumbing to. Certainly the mines were terrible, and Cutter deeply wanted to escape, the way it worked was not completely different from the streets of Raej, where in a man intimidated or assaulted those he wanted something from. Save for the company of Erisian Maboya and her circle of confidants, Cutter felt certain he could intimidate anyone or take what he wanted. A bully in many respects, he did what he felt he had to to survive for the next thirty years. But those mindless days of darkness, salt, and grueling labor all congealed into a single mass of memory of monotony and hardship until the day he met Rose Leclair. She was a pale Chaillotian beauty with bright blue eyes and small rose colored lips, and even in the terrible darkness of eternity that Cutter had to look forward to, she was a small light to cling to. She was too good for him, of course, something he admitted as well, but the nights they spent together coiled in warmth after long hours of toil was a happiness he thought he had forgotten. She was not his alone, something he had accepted and forced himself not to fall to fury after -- after all, in their hell, how could he blame others for wanting to be close to her. Years passed, and one night she was stolen from her bed by the Geiba and dragged the Sapphire Widow into some deeper pit of hell. Cutter nearly found death that day in his enraged attempt to reclaim her, but the Geiba used their collars and lashes to subdue the raging beast that had become his person, and he was laid to rest with scars that he carries to this day.

    Years passed again, a blank monotony of darkness, choking salt, and sweat. His overseer pulled him aside one day, some twelve years after Rose's disappearance (for she never returned) and gave him an offer: Act as a protector for a young child, one important to the Geiba, and receive better rations and the occasional sip of brandy. Cutter was not likely to refuse such work, and at first thought he'd gotten off easy until he laid eyes upon eyes that so closely resembled Rose's frightened face. Her mouth was the exact same, a child replica of the woman whom had been his light in the darkness. That night Cutter fell in love with Ghanima, the spoils of war, and has loved her ever since. For five years he stood as her constant companion, protector, and at times her only friend. When men would think her just a tender morsel to devour or to abuse, Cutter set them right with brutal and terrifying methods. Several men in the Geiba mines lacked hands after placing them upon Ghanima's person, or even attempting to, and he watched the young girl grow into a young woman who were she not so malnourished and have suffered under the hardship of the Geiba, would be an even more beautiful version of her mother. Though at first Cutter grew anxious at the idea that Ghanima was his child, time in her presence and some quiet investigation into Rose's other partners had made him dismiss the idea that she is his daughter.

    But despite his feelings and his realization of her identity, Cutter never told the child of whom he believed her mother was. There was enough pain in that dark pit that she needn't be given an additional wound; an additional reason to hate the Geiba more than she already did. Besides, what could Cutter tell her that would not cheapen his presence in her life or make her suspicious of him? He knew that she was not meant for him, that such a short-lived beauty would be a memory for him should he ever escape that hell in fifty years or so.  When the mines were opened, when Erisian Maboya was found and the Geiba were punished, he knew that Ghanima would have nowhere to go. She had no family, no-one to claim her.

    In that, however, they were kin. Cutter had long ago left behind Abraham Santiago. He was Nima's friend, confidant, and guardian. Through the hell that he'd suffered, he had found redemption and purpose in that little Rose Mutt Queen. There was no greater calling to him at this moment, nor ever before.

    As long as he was by her place, and by her side, Abraham "Cutter" Santiago, was exactly where he was supposed to be.

    Show Us What You've Got


    Writing Sample: (Warning, Adult Language)
    The shadows stretched long through the grime covered corridors of the inner mine. The section which held Cutter's cell seemed more cramped than the other pieces of the shitstained hellhole that the Geiba had deposited him into. He hated it almost as much as he hated the Geiba with their smug little faces and their beady dark eyes. They smelled of too much perfume that contrasted sharply with the smell of piss, shit, blood, and sweat that lingered on Cutter's clothes on weeks at end. No matter how much he may have been exposed to the scent he'd never get used to it. Not for the rest of his days. He'd been placed back in his cell after his labors to languish in darkness. The last few weeks he'd been better, they said, mostly cause he hadn't told these sons of whores to go fuck their mothers since they'd taken off most of the skin of his shoulder and left him to linger in a feverish state. Even after nearly twenty seven years in this place (had it been so little? it always felt longer), he'd not taken to heart the idea that he needed to just shut his mouth.

    "Curly." The Overseer had called him that due to his hair, and he flashed a torch by the bars. "Come. You are wanted." The man was an ugly cretin, pignosed and flat faced with a beard that reeked of old butter, but he held the lash in his hand as well as his torch, and Cutter just wasn't in the mood to be defiant enough. So he got up out of his cell, and followed mutely after the Overseer who led him through the too cramped corridor. "You have shown you are not stupid. So we want you for a task." The Overseer stopped at the entrance way and turned to Cutter then with annoyed eyes. "But you will have to obey if you want your reward. And no more back talk."

    "Depends on what you want me to do." Cutter replied with the slightest hint of a smirk. He couldn't sound too cocky, or resilient to the order, or he'd lose a chance at whatever he was supposed to do.

    "Protect a girl while she works in the mines. You make sure she lives, you get an extra half portion of food, and I'll give you some whiskey. I hear you like it." The Overseer mirrored Cutter's smirk, but it was far less pleasant and held an edge of knowledge to it that was as sharp as Cutter's namesake.

    "Doesn't sound too bad." The former mercenary shrugged slowly. "Sure. Nothing happens to the girl, under those terms." Like he needed much incentive. It was a little girl for fucks' sake. Cutter might have growled what sort of sick fuck this pig-nosed piece of filth thought Cutter was, but that would have gotten him nowhere. Best to just bite his tongue for now. "And I'll keep my hands off too, if that's what your thinkin."

    The overseer's laugh was a cruel and hateful sounding thing, and he turned without another word as he began to lead Cutter down a series of corridors he'd never seen before. They came to a larger chamber where the children apparently worked. Wait... children worked. Cutter had never seen children work down here in the Mines before. Teenagers, sure. But never kids. The lot of them looked barely older than their birthright ceremonies. A few years older at the most.

    Instantly Cutter's blood grew hot, and he considered leaping onto the Overseer to choke him to death with his bare hands, and to hell with the consequences. Did the depravity of the Geiba know no bounds? "Mother Fucking Night." Cutter hissed softly in anger and in disbelief. But as he might have acted out, and done something that would have certainly ended his life, the Overseer pointed out the girl that he was supposed to watch over. "...Mother...fucking... Night.." The words came out more shock than anger now, as his gaze followed the man's fingers.

    "That is the girl, Cutter."

    It was a Queen. A little twelve year old Queen. And when she looked up at him, he saw the face of Rose's daughter for the first time, and he felt his heart leap into his throat and begin to strangle him.

    "Yeah." Cutter said, his voice thick with emotion, pain, and terror for the little girl with bright eyes with hints of gold. "Yeah... I'll make sure nothing happens to her, alright."

    Petitions (if any): 

    Why did this character became inactive?
    Because I became inactive.

    What will you do to prevent this character from becoming inactive again?
    I can't promise it won't be ever again, but I have a high interest in writing him

    What are your plans for this character?
    If Vivian's on I'll write him with Nima. Maybe he'll get in a bar fight with Lucky and have hatesex.

Plot Lead Character's Name: Maarika Sydan-Harmaa
Plot Lead Character's Caste: Black Widow Queen
Plot Lead Character's Jewels: Rose to Opal

Territory Plot:
In 191 AP, desperate Nharkavans who were weary from years of Glacian “protection” and exploitation made a desperate attempt to force Glacia to end its occupation of Nharkava. They kidnapped the parents of Elisif Brenden, the tri-casted, Gray Jeweled ruler of Glacia, and tried to ransom their lives against Nharkava’s freedom. Elisif and three Ebon Gray males who served her went to Nharkava, ostensibly to parlay with the kidnappers. Instead, the depth of Elisif’s fanaticism was made clear when she killed her own parents to negate the leverage in the hands of the Nharkavans. She then had her males slaughter the entire court that had gathered to parlay, including the Nharkavan Territory Queen Mahamari Rien, and left the Territory Seat empty and awash in blood. 

Though Elisif initially left the Territory Seat of Nharkava Queenless and in chaos, she replaced the slain Queen with a Glacian one of her choice. Shortly after the massacre, political developments in Glacia prompted Elisif to exile one of Glacia’s Queens. Maarika Sydan-Harmaa had done little to offend Elisif herself, but Maarika’s husband and bonded male, Jonothan Harmaa, was suspected of murdering one of Elisif’s bonded males before fleeing the Territory. Unable to find Jonathon to demand her Price, Elisif sent Maarika to Nharkava and burned down Maarika’s provincial estate, making it seem to most (including Jonothan) that Maarika had been killed in the blaze. Meanwhile, she commanded Maarika to take the place of the slain ruler in Nharkava and bring the troubled Territory into a more controlled state of compliance. Maarika and her most loyal courtiers were quietly and quickly moved to Nharkava’s capital in Orissa. While Elisif’s ploy did succeed in reaching and wounding Jonothan, he eventually discovered the ruse and no longer believes her dead. He became a somewhat estranged, tentative ally to Maarika while she began trying to bring order to the fractured Territory.

This was no small task, as even aside from the contentious matter of Glacia’s occupation, Nharkava had been at war with itself for quite some time. Its Landen population had risen to governance in the wake of the Purge, seizing the opportunity when so many Blood had been culled at once. The Blood retook control of the Territory once they recovered from the decimation of the Purge, but the Landen have never forgotten that they are not only capable but, some say, entitled to rule themselves. The Landen Rebellion and the Council of Eight which lead it has swelled and lulled over the centuries since the Purge, but its heart has never stopped beating. Despite the Rebellion’s eventual decision to accept certain sympathetic Blood (mostly those without Jewels), dissent and distrust between the Landen and the Blood have been part of Nharkavan life since before any of them can remember.

To make matters worse, Nharkavans were as divided as ever in response to Elisif’s culling of the Nharkavan Queen and her court at Orissa. Some of the native Nharkvans who had been willing to fight against their oppressors before were cowed by Elisif’s display of savagery; others who’d never considered lifting a hand before were moved to arms by the same act. Many of the Dark Jeweled Nharkavan natives who benefitted from the influence of the Dark Religion and its zealots were complicit, accepting their boons each time the Glacian regime granted them possession of their Light Jeweled countrymens’ wealth or property. The Dark Religion painted these Dark Jeweled Blood as the Chosen of Mother Night, and it was a song that appealed to many Nharkavans who had no significant stature before. Of course, not every Dark Jeweled Nharkavan who accepted the spoils Glacia reappropriated from their countrymen because they converted to the religion of the Glacians. Some did it just because it was a path to more wealth or a higher social status. Light Jeweled Nharkavan natives often saw obedience as their most viable path to a pain-free life, and committed themselves to service to their Dark Jeweled “superiors” for the sake of saving their own lives. 

Not all of Nharkava’s Blood bent a knee and kept their head down in the wake of Elisif’s slaughter, however. Those brave (or foolish, depending on one’s perspective) souls who refused to quietly surrender their country wholly into Glacia’s greedy hands were invigorated by the new motivation to act. Though they had to be more cautious than ever before given the new, direct Glacian oversight, they continued their covert work to subvert the power of their oppressors through any means necessary. Loose and uncomfortable alliances began to form between some of the Jeweled Blood and some of the Landen rebels. While the Landen Rebellion remained its own animal separate from the rebellious efforts of the Blood fighting against Glacia, individuals here and there saw the benefit in joining forces to combat their common enemy.

The Landen Rebellion, even with their ranks bolstered here and there by some sympathetic Blood, has been slow to affect change. They have fine-tuned a number of guerilla tactics that keep the Blood harried and defensive, but have not yet managed to wrest back meaningful control in the Territory. In the meantime, a spy planted by one of Elisif’s zealots discovered the location of the Rebellion’s meeting place. The intel he gained allowed Glacia’s coven to unleash a viciously targeted attack on the Council of Eight, and many of the Rebellion’s leaders were grievously wounded or killed in one fell swoop. Among the slain was Devika Ranjana, the leader and holy icon the rebels called the Avatar of the Mother. Beyond her, it’s not yet clear how many Seats survived the attack. Now, with most of their guiding hands torn down, the remaining rebels struggle with finding direction and structure until survivors or new hands take up the reins.

Meanwhile, Nharkava is dying. While there is no shortage of blood spilled on its warm soil, not enough of it is the nourishing blood of Queens who would truly feed the land. Natural-born Nharkavan Queens have been sparse since the Purge, and Glacia’s machinations have seen most of those who remained in power either removed to Glacia for “education” or hidden away by their native brethren to protect them from subjugation. Their thrones are being stewarded by the men who would protect them, and while these few hidden Queens try to aid the land where they can, they are too precious a resource to be allowed to risk as much as they’d like. Glacia has lent some of its many Queens to tours of the land in an attempt to keep it fed, and while it has been just enough to keep the land from withholding all bounty, it is not nearly enough to see the Territory flourish as it ought.

Succession Plan:
Maarika served Glacia under duress after her exile, unable to act out against the Territory of her birth in any visible manner due to the fact that Elisif held her beloved sister as hostage against her good behavior. Maarika’s work at subjugating the beleaguered Territory according to Elisif’s wishes was slow and largely unimpactful, in part because the task was simply massive and in part because she intentionally moved things at a glacial pace. She covertly instructed her most trusted courtiers to find ways to assist the natives however they could while she maintained a visible facade of being a perfectly loyal Glacian patriot.The people of Nharkava would hate her as they hated Elisif, but Maarika was willing to accept that if it meant her agents were free to help bolster the Nharkavan resistance where they could.

The sudden death of Elisif brought Maarika to a moment of crisis. Her sister Magdalena was still imprisoned at the Territory Court in Vaasa, but the head of the serpent had been unexpectedly cut off. Emboldened by this turn of events, Maarika will take a firmer hold of the reins of Nharkava. She will begin finding (sometimes only mildly) diplomatic ways to uproot Glacians who have been allowed to supplant Nharkavan property owners of lighter Jewels, and she will halt the proliferation of the slave collars Elisif had demanded be deployed. These will both be done with as much spin as Maarika can muster, so that despite the fact that she will begin undoing Glacian shackles one by one, she (hopefully) won’t be easily blamed for either change even if Vaasa somehow manages to rise quickly again from the political chaos caused by Elisif’s death. She is determined to maintain control of Nharkava for now, if only to keep someone worse from being sent from Glacia to take her place if she publicly defects.

Meanwhile, the people of Nharkava are growing desperate. The discontent native Blood and the Landen have formed an uneasy alliance under the umbrella of the limping remnants of the Council of Eight, and are determined now to cast out their oppressors at any cost. New attempts at Council of Eight leadership will rise and conflict with one another, but enough cohesion will be maintained that the way they fight will shift in response to their losses. Small teams of Landen who have until now been able to affect only the most careful and guerilla-type attacks will begin to see their ranks bolstered by sympathetic Blood, lending a new level of effectiveness to their old techniques. Blood supply lines will suffer more than they ever have, and new kinds of poisons based on obscure native plants and animals will begin claiming the lives of Glacians and their sympathizers. While Maarika will attempt to quietly solicit Queens from neighboring Territories to help restore the land, her public facade will draw continuous fire from the natives who can’t know she desires to help them. Native Warlord Princes and Priestesses who took hold of thrones in order to hide and protect their precious Queens will struggle to keep hold of these seats in the face of hungry Glacian usurpers. The revelation of webbed and disguised Glacian spies in their midst will prompt Nharkava’s Black Widows to begin returning the favor.

While the nascent rebel alliance is motivated at the moment, surely it is only a matter of time before the Blood and Landen bow to the tensions between their races once more. The only question is when: before or after they manage to eject the Glacian Queen who may be their most powerful unknown ally?

Roles of Castes specific to Territory:
Queens: Queens remain rare and cherished. Those exceedingly rare few who hold Offerings darker than the Purple Dusk have been removed to Glacia for “education” (indoctrination), or have been carefully hidden by those who serve them. Even Light Jeweled Nharkavan Queens are terribly rare, and most of these are in hiding by mandate of the Territory’s Black Widows and Warlord Princes, who have resolved to keep them out of Glacia’s sight rather than losing them altogether. These hidden Queens are still escorted throughout the Territory to gift the land as much as they can, but these expeditions are undertaken only with the most careful of measures to keep the Queens safe.

Glacian Queens have been solicited in the past to come to Nharkava and feed the land, and this practice continues to a degree. Non-natives often struggle to cope with the punishing heat of the summers and the dangerous weather of the rainy seasons, and often don’t stay long when they come. In an attempt to help bolster the land, Maarika will prompt her agents to quietly visit Territories other than Glacia to seek aid in this regard, offering some of the Territory’s substantial material wealth as compensation.

Black Widows: The coven of Nharkava was the origin of the idea to hide away the remaining native Queens, and it is their combined effort that keeps these Queens so well hidden from their hunters. The recent slaughter of most of the Council of Eight has awakened both the Landen and the Blood of Nharkava to the presence of sleeper agents among their ranks: Glacian sympathizers (or perhaps actual disguised Glacians) who are sending precious intel back to their masters. This will embolden Nharkava’s Black Widows to return the favor, and they will begin finding ways to insert disguised Nharkavan agents into Glacian society. 

Other Black Widows focus their attention on using their resistance to poison to aid them in harvesting the venom of the many dangerous snakes and other venomous animals lurking deep in the jungles of Sikkim. These poisons, less familiar than others to Glacians, are then used to concoct deadly mixes that can be slipped into teas and other innocuous vehicles.

Nharkava’s coven is less formally organized than some other Territories. Three women have emerged as its unofficial and cooperative head, each one focused on one aspect of the coven’s work: the public courts, the hidden Queens, and those directly involved with offensive measures against Glacia. They work in concert to direct the efforts of the Territory’s Black Widows.

Priestesses: Nharkavan Priestesses are sharply divided in their loyalties, at the moment.  Some serve the Nharkavan courts in the absence of Queens. They lack the innate ability Queens have to calm Blood males, but of the remaining Blood females it is the Priestesses who have had the most success keeping tempers at bay. Many Nharkavan Priestesses now serve in the roles once held by men, allowing Warlord Princes to make decisions about rule while the Priestesses advise them from positions of the Steward, or sometimes Escort. Healers occasionally take these roles as well, given their calming effect on many Blood, but Priestesses are far more common.


Some serve the Old Ways of the Nharkavan Priestesshood, a sect that has been outlawed by the Glacians. They practice their native worship of the Darkness in secret, and spend their time propagating its survival among the people where they can. A special, secret sect called the Sekhalasi are stewards of some of Nharkava’s most arcane and jealously guarded secrets, and devote their lives to keeping this dangerous information from the wrong hands.


Some have given in to the lure of Glacian promises, and serve under the Dark Religion as converts. They enjoy luxury and social potential to a degree their sisters will likely never know, but will begin to face consequences for these luxuries once the resistance grows desperate.   

Healers: Healers are highly prized by all sides in Nharkava right now, even by the Landen who are slow to trust Blood in general. With all of the conflict currently ongoing, there is no shortage of need. They sometimes serve as high-level courtiers, advising the ruling Warlord Princes and Priestesses who are stewarding the thrones left empty by absent Queens.

Warlord Princes: Nharkava has an unusually high number of Warlord Princes among its Blood males. They have stepped up alongside a few other non-traditional rulings castes to steward most of the Province and District seats while the former Queens of those seats are absent. Those not ruling often do what they can to find and serve the few remaining hidden Queens, sorely missing that calming touch. They typically serve as the retinue that hides and protects Queens who venture out on covert missions to feed the land without being found out by those who would turn them over to the Glacians. In the coming days, it will be some of Nharkava’s many Warlord Princes who are disguised by Nharkava’s Black Widows and deployed to Glacia as spies and sleepers.

Warlords: More than ever before, warlords who can learn the Craft of sapping the rage of another are in high demand. They are loaded heavily into every court wherein Nharkava’s many Warlord Princes are trying to rule as Queens do. It is not uncommon for a Warlord Prince to have such a warlord as his First Escort and/or constant companion, purely for the sake of managing the Warlord Prince’s temper in tense situations.

Princes/Witches: Though plentiful in Nharkava, they serve much the same variety of versatile roles they serve elsewhere.

Impact on the levels of District/Province/Territory/Realm:
District rulers will begin to aggressively fill out their courts with as much native support as they can muster. Now that the Warlord Princes and Priestesses who have stepped up have had a chance to get their bearings, they are working to maintain what control they have. Some are committed to preserving Nharkava as best they can, while others are looking for ways to make Nharkavan submission complete, for the sake of peace and safety.

Province seats are no less fractured. In Sikkim, where dissidents and Landen Rebels have always had a strong hold, the focus will be on protecting those who are working to free Nharkava without making their support known. In Jharkand, where Glacia’s hold is more firm, the struggle is to find ways to keep land and seats out of the hands of the invading Glacians who feel entitled to be stewards themselves. In Goa, where loyalties lay in both directions, the Blood and Landen alike struggle to discern who among themselves they can trust, and who might betray them to the other side.

Territory-wide, Nharkava will see a sharpening divide between those who have been complicit in Glacia’s invasion and those who will now take any measures to see them ousted for good. While content until now to focus their ire upon the invading Glacians, Nharkavan rebels will begin to demand answers of their brethren who are doing more than acting complicit. It’s no longer just Glacians who suddenly fall ill due to mysterious poisons created by Maninder’s people, or whose people and supply lines suffer attacks and harrying from martially adept Landen from Carna’s temple. The days of tolerance and patience are ending, and the blood is only beginning to flow.

Common Grounds / 2018 Winsol Graphics Giveaway
« on: Nov 01, 18, 11:06:54 AM »
Hey all,

In 2016 I gave away a free character pic/sig combo to each active writer on BR for a character of their choice and I'm going to do the same again this year!

There's no promise on time of delivery and to make it clear I want to be able to experiment and push myself to try different things for these (I saw a lot of growth and learned a lot of things last time), so there's not as much direction on these as a Graphics Shop purchase.

If you want one you can reply here, PM me, or discord message me with what character you want the graphics for!

Wanted Ads / Wanted in Dena Nehele: Blackwater Agents
« on: May 28, 18, 10:45:00 PM »
Toyani no Kagen has taken up rule in Blackwater, the seat of the Lesser Caecian District. From here she plans to build a criminal syndicate to cut her teeth into, while also working against the Territory Court of Dena Nehele, making friends, enemies, and frenemies along the way. These following concepts are open-ended, and sponsored by myself, Rated Em, Phedre, and Leez. I've noted who you should touch base with before asking Review Council to take a look.



The Loyalist


Concept Name: The Loyalist
Sponsor: Dash (Though Reid should take a look for any Tacean canon you introduce).
Difficulty: Standard
Age: At least 20
Race: Short Lived
Caste: Any
Birth Territory: Tacea
Home Territory: Dena Nehele
Jewels: Any.
Links to IC Posts:
• None, yet.

The Loyalist is one of Toyani no Kagen's closest allies. This concept is most likely a witch. They could be someone who served Toyani's mother, someone who grew up with her, or someone who sees her as a better alternative to Yumi no Kagen, the new Queen of the Clan. Someone of the Tang tribe, who served in the Kagen crime group, would be ideal as well.

This character must not have a Queen Bond to Toyani and must be Tacean. But they can be any age, Caste, or Jewels, though if they are male they cannot have a darker Descent than the Sapphire.


The Kagen Spy


Concept Name: The Kagen Spy
Sponsor: Leez (Though Reid should take a look for any Tacean canon you introduce).
Difficulty: Standard
Age: At least 20
Race: Short Lived
Caste: Any
Birth Territory: Tacea
Home Territory: Dena Nehele
Jewels: Any.
Links to IC Posts:
• None, yet.

The Kagen Spy has been sent by Zhihao An to spy on Toyani's activities on behalf of his Queen, Hinata no Kagen, who unified Tacea over twenty years ago (and is Toyani's aunt). Both Zhihao and Hinata are concerned about Toyani's activities, as she parted on bad terms with Hinata and she's too powerful and too secretive to be left unchecked.

The Kagen Spy can be any Caste and any Jewels; the key thing is that they are in Blackwater posing as a Dena Nehelian. If they are to be involved in Toyani's Second Circle (the ideal spot) they should have a cover story that helps their position as someone valuable. They should be loyal to Zhihao and Hinata, but the concept has room for complications that arise once they're there, as the agent is likely leaving Tacea for the first time.

The Spy’s end may be a grim one, as they play a dangerous game. Go into this assuming the character may not survive.

Please speak to Leez about your idea and see if it'll work, in addition to myself!




WATCHER


Concept Name: Watcher
Sponsor: Rated Em and Phedre
Difficulty: Standard
Age: At least 20
Race: Short Lived
Caste: Any (Must be female)
Birth Territory: Dena Nehele
Home Territory: Dena Nehele
Jewels: Any.
Links to IC Posts:
Are You White Blue or Bloody Red.

When Toyani negotiated her contract with Rilandra Vlas, she agreed to take on two people of Riley's choosing to her First Circle. WATCHER is female, somewhere between the ages of 23 and 32. She can be of any Jewels and any Caste. Watcher will be placed within the Court of Lesser Caecian, serving not only as eyes and ears for the Territory Court - as two people will be placed there by the Court - but for the Shaos as well. There will be a fine line of keeping tabs on Toyani no Kagen and ensuring that she is not revealed for the spy that she is. While she can come from any background, it is expected that she be able to navigate the political sea that Courts are part of. Protocol and Etiquette savvy are a must for this role.



The Jack


Concept Name: The Jack
Sponsor: Reid and Phedre
Difficulty: Standard
Age: At least 20
Race: Short Lived
Caste: Any
Birth Territory: Dena Nehele
Home Territory: Dena Nehele
Jewels: Any.
Links to IC Posts:
Are You White Blue or Bloody Red.

The Jack is the second of the two being sent from Rilandra Vlas. Unlike the Shaos, the Jack is open about his or her Guild membership. They would likely be one of the Jacks that supported Riley in Tulzbruja, so returning "home" and away from the Territory Court could be seen as a breath of fresh air.

Please check with Phedre for specifics, as this also would be someone Riley trusts.



Other Concepts!:
  • Toyani's Court Seer (Claimed by Myst)
  • Toyani's MoTG, First Circle Members, Healer, and Steward (all must be Tacean, the Steward and MotG would be women as well).
  • Anything else you could think of.

All claimed concepts will have two weeks to complete the application, unless I love your concept and you've given me reason to think you'll complete it soon. Feel free to PM me or the sponsors with any questions!

Wanted Ads / [DAM] The Queen of Esgarth
« on: Apr 16, 18, 11:21:42 PM »
Majesty Illion




Character Name: Majesty Illion
Is this specific name Required?: Yes
Difficulty: ADVANCED
Age: At least 90
Race: Medium Lived
Caste: Queen
Birth Territory: Dea al Mon
Home Territory: Dea al Mon
Suggested Play-by: Vera Farminga
Jewels: Any.
Links to IC Posts:
• None, yet.

Majesty Illion has ruled Esgarth for the last 35 years with ruthless political acumen and machiavellian tactics. The first Queen to throw her support behind Gale Galoneth, she was an early ally of the Territory Queen to supplant Epiphany Elbereth before she fell ill. As much as Majesty can be “friends” with anyone, she is a strong ally of Gale’s even to this day. While Kassel has fallen and Devinos has seen political unrest, Majesty has held firmly to her seat; arranging for the death, disfigurement, or displacement of any and all rivals.

There is, of course, only one rival that she has yet to remove and that is her own young daughter Virtuosa. Beloved deeply by her Consort and by many of the males in her own Court, Majesty is quietly deeply jealous of her young daughter’s beauty. It is for this reason that she has fueled the young Queen’s ridiculous aspirations to lead warriors into battle. She has thrown her political weight to indulge this fantasy with the hope that Virtuosa will launch herself face first into the Brood and end her own life.

Majesty is opulent, manipulative, and arrogant. She is cunning and deceptive and should be picked up only by someone willing to play up her duplicitous and petty nature.

Her daughter and Consort are currently in play.

      • There are several PC characters to consider, though they do not need to necessarily be called out specifically within the Petition.
      • Nharkava should be a Landen power heavy Territory, given the Rebellion. We expect that element of the plot to be maintained.

      • Much of the culture elements are in place for Dhemlan so primarily we are not looking for culture pieces but plot moving elements and direction for the Territory that leverages the culture items.
      • As there were an abundance of detailed pieces to previous plots that were never fully played, HBC is willing to take into consideration the abolition or alteration of some small, existing plot pieces.

      The HBC has changed the requirements to Petition a Territory to 6 months of consecutive activity (on the day that you submit your petition) and ten posts on four characters, each.

      Blood Rites has grown from when we set the original requirements were set eight years ago. HBC has decided that we need to see a greater commitment to the site from our prospective plot leaders in the interests to keep new Territories going.

      If you have any questions feel free to reach out to any of us.

      Hello all,

      I am pleased to announce that we are adding Haloriel to the Review Council!

      Haloriel will be under probation for the first few months as we teach her the ropes. If you have questions on your Reviews you should still direct them to myself or phinn, as we'll still be overseeing the Council.

      Congrats!

      Gudrun Jollenbeck




      Character Name: Gudrun Jollenbeck
      Is this specific name Required?: Yes
      Difficulty: Medium
      Age: 32
      Race: Short-lived, Rihlander

      A Moot Point
      Wanted: One Province Queen

      Gudrun is the Queen of Vyrkov Province, the northernmost part of Rihland. Vyrkov is a harsher land than Markoth or Scythia and it used to be the part of the Territory most filled with Jinka. Gudrun is a tough woman who has strong sympathies with the Reclaimers and has a deep dislike for The Exchange. She bore a Half-Eyrien son who was killed by the Eyrien Court that had her formally raised, and so she has strong feelings about Eyrien Priestesses.

      Kalvar has made Gudrun the Queen of Vyrkov for the last six months. She has both Signe and Kibeth under her as District Queens. The former was assigned by Kalvar, the latter she named herself.

      This character was originally written by Caryn who has retired the character and offered the ability to adopt her as written. If you wish to reinvent her, please contact me with your idea as she is a large part of Rihland's current political landscape.


      Plots with: Signe (Halyonix), Kibeth (Reid), The Reclaimers (Dash, Halyonix, Phedre, Rated Em, Reid), Kalvar (Dash), and anyone else you wish.

      Announcements Archive / Change to Family Rolls
      « on: Dec 11, 17, 09:17:23 AM »
      We have seen a large influx of Family Rolls as the method of selecting a Jewel rather than risking the results of the roller. We like Family Rolls a lot and want to see them continue to be used, but we recognize the potential for abuse. As such, we are making the use of a Family Roll a Free shop item. This won't stop you from using them, but has the added consequence that it cannot be combined with another shop item, such as a Full Descent or a Dark Jewel Ratio Slot.

      Thank you,
      Dash, on behalf of HBC

      Andrei Elbremov



      Character Name: Andrei Elbremov
      Is this specific name Required?: Yes.
      Difficulty: STANDARD
      Age: 32
      Race: ¼ Long Lived, ¾ Short-Lived (¼ Eyrien, ¼ Tacean, ½ Rihlander)
      Caste: Prince
      Birth Territory: Rihland

      • None, yet. But has been mentioned by many threads.

      Kalvar Elbremov’s middle son, Andrei grew up in Rihland under the shadow of Eyrien control. Always standing apart, Andrei nonetheless gravitated heavily toward the Rihlander culture. He was an avid member of the Rebellion, coming into conflict with his half-brother Odinar and his father, but having the full support of his mother. After the death of his mother, his hatred for Eyriens grew. While he holds no personal animosity toward his father and his half-brother directly, “other” Eyriens are not safe. He has thrown his full support behind the Reclaimers while on the surface he runs his father’s farm.

      Plots with: Me!, Dani (Shiori), Gavin (Odinar), Kenna (Reo), and Reclaimer players!

      Kalvar Elbremov’s youngest child and youngest daughter, Valeryian is the only Rihlander-blooded child to have functional wings. She is closest to Odinar, her half-brother. Valeryian identifies heavily with her Eyrien blood and tries to push her father toward reconciliation with the other Eyriens. She was horrified at her father’s actions at Ebon Rih and will attempt to make inroads with the Eyriens of Rihland to try and unify the Territory. She has never really known “her” people and will likely be in for a rude awakening.

      Plots with: Me!, Dani (Shiori), Gavin (Odinar), Kenna (Reo), phinn (Tess) and those in the Eyrien Rebellion.

      • None, yet.

      Tylmandra Ahlberg’s older brother, Vulf helped his sister escape from Rihland, though at great cost. Being grievously injured protecting his sister, Vulf lost his entire family the day she left their home behind. Vulf survived (somehow) and when he regained his strength his hatred for the Eyriens knew no bounds. He was one of the few Rihlanders who struck out against the Eyriens whenever possible in their nascent and failing rebellion. With Kalvar’s ascendence he has joined the Reclaimers and been one of their most radical voices and agents. If there’s a chance to put some pain onto the winged bastards, Vulf is first to volunteer. He will be an instrumental element to Tylmandra’s return to Rihland, and I hope someone brings the extremist view he holds that makes even other Reclaimers uncomfortable!

      Toyani no Kagen, the heir to the Kagen Clan and to her mother's criminal empire, is settling into Dena Nehele to learn the secrets of the Black Widow Caste and spread the reach of her family's organization. While Toyani gathers influence, allies, and power, she will have those close to her reach out to make themselves available as assets to the nearby Dena Nehelians.

      Itsuko (or whatever you name her) will have been trained extensively as a warrior all her life and have a deep loyalty to the Kagen clan. She can be supportive of Toyani's ambitions or dislike them, but she must be loyal to Toyani given her close position to her. She can also have some sort of relationship with her brothers, Akira or the two that will be in play (whenever) Tacea is opened again for Petition.


      Plots with: Dash (Toyani and Akira), Gavin (Maseo), others as Toyani's influence grows.

      After Rilandra Vlas joined with the Guild Master and made it so contracts on Queens were a no-go, a lot of the more cutthroat contacts have disappeared. As such, Ioan has grown bored and discontent. Hiring himself on contract to Toyani no Kagen, Ioan is excited by the new prospect to make a great deal of money and to have his talents be put to good use. While Toyani’s most loyal men look down on him as an outsider, he is either intrigued, enamored, or bonded to the crime Queen and wishes to help her succeed (while furthering his own goals).

      While this character doesn’t have to be outright villainous, he has to be one of the Shaos who was comfortable with the darker aspects of the Guild’s work.

      Garen L’Voide is Dena Nehele’s richest man, most eligible bachelor, and number one villain. Garen owns vast swaths of tobacco farms filled with collared slaves that has has purchased (legally!) in both Hayll and Raej. Garen is part of Rilandra Vlas’s First Circle and is one of the movers and shakers of the Territory, and he’s about to acquire his most potent weapon yet: A Healer with a Red Birthright.

      But Garen’s estate is place of misery where he is master and king and all who dwell within it are not safe from his tormenting touch. Those who live beneath his control find they must rely on each-other or step over another to survive and thrive.

      WARNING: Garen’s one of most cruel characters on the board. Not every scene needs to be played, but playing in this arena of play is not for those who can find such play can trigger you. If it’s even a “maybe”, please talk to me so that we can avoid any problems!
