Time of Contempt (OOC/Open)

This is the OOC thread, so keep all OOC chatter here, even little comments that are not part of your IC narrative! If you must leave a footnote in your narrative at some point to assist in the reader understanding part of it please use a spoiler!

Setting


No Imperial Scholars know exactly what happened, only that there was some evidence of a apocalyptic event in the far past, long before the Empire was formed. Some portent that an era of winter lasting a hundred years destroyed the most ancient civilizations. Others say a great plague or war. None could guess. But if one was to wind the clock back to the late 21st Century they'd see a species choking itself to death. War, famine. disease, and economic collapse loomed. What followed was the Atomic Wars that irradiated various cities and stretches of the Earth. Followed by the Ziccara Virus which reduced one to their basic instincts, basically cannibalistic creatures of limited herd mentality, overrunning most of humanities last bastions. The nuclear fallout and further human tampering's brought about the surviving human cities caused an induced Ice Age. Lasting only fifty years the glaciers however did their work. Reshaping much of the Earth as the sea's rose and fell. The years ticked on as Humanity struggled to meek out a miserly existence.

It was during this time that the Old Races walked the Earth according to Imperial Scholars. The Solarian's from Solace, The Dwellers, The Middle Men (average humans), The Sea-Dwellers, Giants, and menageries of beasts or monsters. The Solarians built a supremely advanced civilization than in certain regards surpassed Ancient Human civilization. The Dwellers short and stocky built magnificent underground fortresses and allies of the Middle Men. The Middle Men despite uneasy alliances with many of the Dwellers were prone to xenophobia. But that era came to an end with the Cataclysm of Solace, the extinction of the Giants, and the vanishing of the Sea-Dwellers. The Dwellers dwindled and intermixed with the Middle Men while the Solarian refugees became the Valkyrians.

During this time many realms had formed, were forming, or came into being. The Kingdom of Normeros, however, steadily grew in power. Their mastery of Dragons and craftsmanship far surpassing their neighbors. Giving them a technological edge that Imperial Scholars claimed made the formation of the Empire inevitable. Dragons only expedited the process considerably. The Coronation of Aerian I as Emperor started the Imperial Calendar and the Age of the Empire. While the Empire's existence was full of wars, internecine squabbles, and it's own share of problems within and without; it cannot be argued against the fact the Empire provided a basis of solidarity. Prosperity the likes of which the peoples of the continent had not seen in distant memory becoming reality. Stability, law, and in many regions long awaited peace abounded. But this might soon end, what will follow may be a Time of Contempt.

In Short the Goal of Everyone: Acquire more power
Technological Level: 12th Century to roughly 1415 minus gunpowder.
House Majori: Controls a large part of the Empire as demarcated on the map.
House Minori: The innumerable smaller lordlings.

House Valkyr

(Vaal-Kei-ur)

House Valkyr traces their origins back to a certain Valyrian of Solace. Solace being an ancient city that most Imperial scholars view as mythical and possibly a fictitious rendition of history. However, House Valkyr and Imperial loyalists throughout history ardently ascertain that there is at least some veracity to this claim. Valyrian being a supposed Prince who escaped Solace after some cataclysmic event over 600 years prior to the present. Valyrian led his people to the site of Valkyria, named because of the Valkur, the ancient Solar word for Dragon, and that the Imperial capital rests in a ring of Volcanos named after the Pantheon of Gods worshipped by the Valkyrian people. Odan, Zaeius, Helian, Keres, Horus, Hira, Vena, Tartus, Artema, Athenea, Tor, Tyr, and Apollos. The Volcanoes became the Thirteen Fires as so named today and the only known location to find Dragon eggs. Also the city of Ameryka was founded across from Lake Evendyn, sadly, it was destroyed in a fiery eruption by the Thirteen Fires after the people of the city committed heretical blasphemies. So say the ancient texts.


Valyrian supposedly fought and tamed the Great Valkur Faenyr and was acclaimed the first King of Normeros after defeating Nine Demons. So say the ancient texts. His reign was long and prosperous, and is supposedly buried beneath the Imperial capital. Despite the fact no known records state his death nor where he was buried. Valyrian had eleven children who continued on his blood line. Their reigns short or long, peaceful or bloody, but it was not until the conquests of Prince Aerian and his five siblings: Aryan, Aeria, Aemilia, Valus, and Baldor. Their father aged and weary gave them governing power. Riding their Dragons they descended upon the lands to the West and South. Conquering, assimilating, and subjugating those tribes and realms. Any ruler which bent the knee willingly was allowed to keep their dominion over the lands and people so long as they offered their crown to the King of Normeros. Their crowns and vestiges forming a growing pile that was eventually forged into the Burning Throne upon the death of the aging King and the ascension of Aerian.


The newly crowned King Aerian started the Imperial Calendar upon his crowning and he reigned for fifty-one years. Under him and his surviving siblings for Valus had died of natural causes and Aemilia had vanished flying West they conquered the lands now ruled today. Aerian's son, Baleron became Baleron I, Emperor on the Burning Throne and King of Normeros (the Kingdom of Normeros becoming the Imperial Lands now known today though both terms are interchangeable). Since then the Valkyr have ruled over many generations.


However, the current Emperor, Baleron IV has shown increasing ineptitude and madness while on the Throne. Becoming increasingly out of touch with reality. His four children, Princes Aryan and Valyrian, and the two Princesses Aeria and Kira; watch in worry as the realm may potentially slide into chaos once more over who will sit on the Burning Throne.


Baleron, aged 61, was once lean and strong; now possessing a beer gut and shallow look. Blue eyes once young and bright now long since faded and chaotic in gaze. Once having pure white hair, now scraggly and greyed. His descent to madness was gradual and began in the Winter of 488. At first it was simply forgetting things and sleep walking. It was followed by outburst of anger, raving, and even the alleged rape of his now deceased wife Julaina. As the years wore on it became harder to hide with Prince Aryan and other imperial officials having to step in for their increasingly mad monarch. By 502 it was unclear if he would congratulate a person or sentence them to death. The death sentences often parried by the words of his eldest two children. But the House Majori and Minori know that a turbulent time could be ahead and test the very fabric of the civilization that has lived under the Burning Throne.


1.Prince Aryan, the eldest and possessing fiery red hair flecked with blonde with piercing blue-green eyes. Said to look much like the first Emperor Aerian's brother Aryan who is his namesake. He rides upon the silver dragon Moonfyre. Aged 28, standing at 6ft 4) and already a competent field commander from training and experience. Having fought savage cannibal tribes from the far north and the pirates of the Far South. He also is the perpetrator of the destruction of House Minori Myran, Jagurden, Koloran, and Wyomen when they revolted. To be fair it was due to Emperor Baleron IV having accused Lord Myran of adultery for no particular reason coupled with a plot to assassinate Baleron put forth by House Koloran. Imperial emissaries tried to smooth over the situation but to no avail. So in 492 they raised their banners hoping the House Majori would ally with them and despose Baleron. It was then Aryan learned his moniker 'Red Dragon,' for he orchestrated his fathers own death which proved to be a fake to lure the four houses into meeting him at a neutral location. There he had them murdered and their bodies devoured by his dragon. He then personally besieged and razed each House's holdings. Slaughtering their entire families and extinguishing their lines. Their lands where given to other loyal lords or new Houses where raised from the Knightly class to replace them.
2.Princess Aeria, aged 23, and proving to be a savvy player of court intrigues. She is less compassionate then her younger sister but a masterful diplomat having been tutored by several prominent scholars at the Imperial Court. She rides upon the golden scaled Ares.

Image

3.Prince Valyrian, aged 21, standing at 5f 11 he is less physically imposing than his older brother. Possessing blonde hair, grey eyes, and thin. Inexperienced in the art of war, but given over to dueling, he is an accomplished swordsman and tourney contender. But not a leader of soldiers and knows little of actual battle strategy. Further he is a womanizer and detests Court politicking unless it involves women. He rides upon the red dragon Baal.
4.Princess Kira, aged 19, the youngest of Baleron's four children. She is a compassionate woman and often found reading tales of chivalrous knights and damsels in distress. She rides upon the white dragon Snowfyre. Empress Julaina died of complications during Kira's birth.

Tagging, I might make a reference to the Crusader Kings 2 mod After the End (like a people in or around the DC area who worship the Founding Fathers as gods among men, or people near a place like Detroit who worship advanced ancient tech as work of the gods aka Rust Cultists) If that's ok with you.

Updated the map. I split the extreme East into two along what us Ancient Humans would have called Lake Champlain. So New York-Vermont boundary. Allowing for four players to have large mountainous stretches in their territories East of the Kanza Deadlands

House Name:Valora

House Sigil:Image

Head of House: Grathen. Grathen is a battered old man in his late 50s that is seeing the end of his life approach as years of hardship weigh down upon him. He seeks to put his house in a position where it may continue to reign for far longer than just his own heir.

Important House Members: Benjamin 22 (Sole Heir to Valora), Viole 51 (Wife of Grathen), Silinea 19 (Daughter of Grathen)

House History:The Valorans have ruled over the lands in the far north since Aerian II and have remained loyal to the ruling emperor throughout every Emperor and Empress. They are a hardy family that comes from the South but struck out to make for new lands after finding their previous overlords unworthy of their continued devotion. They overthrew the old overlord in the year 58, and remained independent for many years. That was until the winters became cruel and made the people of the land starve. In response to this crisis Lord Belethin swore allegiance to Aerian II in return for support and to help save the folk of his lands. Since that time, House Valora has ensured to support the reigning emperor with troops, supplies, and of course a son to be a serving member of the court and imperial military. Of particular note was Lord Ferinar who became known as the "Iron Wolf" in the first civil war for his numerous victories. This name would then become the crest of the family and spur fear into all those who ran into it's fearsome mountain warriors. It is through blessings of the Gods that Valora has been able to retain power with such fortune. However, lately this fortune seems to be lost. Winters grow cruel once more and the public raises fists in anger towards the ruling Emperor and the House seems to be forgotten by other House Majori as Valora is seen as a House in decline. Lady Viole has remained infertile since the birth of Silinea leaving Benjamin the sole heir of the House Valora and putting pressure on Grathen to consider being withholding of the traditional support of the Emperor. The fate of Valora is in the hands of Benjamin and Grathen as they must decide who to support in the royal court.

House Majori or Minori: Majori

Additional House details: The soldiers of this house are hardy woodsmen used to the cold mountains and woods of the north. They are like ghosts who come out of the woods in ambush with long swords and axes held to cut down their opponents. They can also take the role of shock troops and are used to running into a formation of soldiers to cut down and sow chaos for allies to rush in to finish the job. They have mediocre archers and only nobles of the house and their retinue are trained in the art of war from horse.

The Capital of the house resides in Ithiel Falles, a castle that resides by a waterfall near a cliff. (In Ancient Human, this is Vermont area). It is a walled fortress and has easy access to the frontier of Valoran Territory. There is a major city named Portlandas that is used for most of the trade going into the territory by sea.

At the moment, House Valora supports Princess Aeria as the next Empress, though these opinions are only kept open to the Princess herself in fear of Prince Aryan's retaliation.

I can change the territory, I just wasn't sure if Segmentia meant New York area, or the Canadian-Maine area.
