Sorry to double post, but for those wondering why the timeline jumps a lot: mostly so people can help fill in their own lore, and mix things around. I also refrained from naming too many Gods so that people could name them, etc.

I'm trying to make this a sandbox-type world, but there is an overarching plot (namely, who gets the Throne... or who seizes it).

What is life when you can't take twos
Both the good shit and the blues
Carpe diem
I don't care if it's wrong or right
Gamble hard and just shine some light
Carpe diem
But what about the tomorrow
I don't really wanna know
About all the cares and the sorrow
I ain't gonna let it show
You put all eggs in one basket
That's the way I wanna live
You'll end up stiff in a casket

Though life is ruff and the road is tuff
You can seize the day throne
You're single now well then so am I
So let's seize the day throne
Girl lose your blues and just laugh at life
And then seize the day throne
Cause you only live once

I don't care if I ain't got no gold
When I'm dusty, gray and old
Carpe diem
Play the card you got up your sleeve
You can't bring nothing when you leave
Carpe diem

So what about the burdens
I'ma let em'fade away
A life without some insurance
I'ma take it day by day
You piss away what you've worked for
That is a point of view
I promise you will just hurt more

Though life is ruff and the road is tuff
You can seize the day throne
You're single now well then so am I
So let's seize the day throne
Girl lose your blues and just laugh at life
And then seize the day throne

Come on come and then sing along and now
Seize the day throne
I ain't gonna wait along a line
Seize the day throne
I ain't gonna waste my time
Seize the day throne
Ooh won't you sing along ooh
Seize the day throne
Cause you only live once


On a serious note, are werewolves human enough to be nobles, or would they be more like cossacks, or the mountain clans of AGoT?
Note: My factbooks are extremely outdated as of now, since this nation has gone through a massive regime change.

Werewolves are believed to be cursed by Daemons, rather than of Daemonic origin. So, while it is possible to be a noble or part of a House as a werewolf, I don't think the Imperial Court nor the other Houses would accept one as a Lady or Lord of their respective House.

Hmm, I'm thinking of a minotaur or beastman that is angry of the Terran empire's mistreatment of beastmen and tries to go all independent warlord or bandit, don't know how far I'll go.

I'm a damn fool, asking me anything is like asking a brick wall the meaning of life. I don't know anything and will never know anything for that is my meaning on this Earth.
Also, to all who roleplay with me. Please understand that I will break the rules, goddmod, complain, break friendships, and will cause nothing but chaos for everyone. So please, if you see me make an app in your RP, reject it automatically and banned me from ever being in that RP. It will be safe for everyone for I am cancer, and cancer must be isolated and destroyed.

Should anyone wish that I am just seeking attention for pity bullshit, you are right. Therefore please don't send any TGs about asking if this a prank, trolling, or anything of the like. Any rationals you come up for my behavior are all true.

APPLICATION:


Name: Baron Uther Kęšgatui of Uhabaritz, Palatial Steward & Lord-Regent
Age:62
Sex:M
Race: Human
Appearance:
Image

Personality & Skills:Withdrawn(not very sociable) out of fear as part of his personal choice for the last two decades in order not allow misdemeanor at public light can be used against him. Quite skillful in his administrative task, has respect of his collegues for the most part(can't erase his humble origins) and will use fear to intimidate the nobility. Known for his anti-slavery and serf reform views based on a pragmatic approach(in order to decrease unemployment and increase tax revenue).

He prefers to exercise power from behind-the-scenes in order to advance his work without too much interference. He wishes to soon retire to his personal fief but not until the succession issue is resolved for good.
House: Kęšgatui: cadet branch of House Blazenheart
Loyalties: The Realm, the Lord-Regent wants to maintain the peace as long as possible. Hoping he would solve any succession issue as tempers are slowly boiling up.
Biography: Uther's life is truly one of sheer luck, born to a small serf family in the region of Provadistne. His family was raising on the side purple cabbage crops, soon it proved a highly profitable business but alas it would not last as the local Count had ordered his arrest for theft(and myriad smaller similar accusations, definitely not groundless). The Count was willing to make him an example by hanging him for this illegal profiteering business, it did not came to pass for Lady Fate herself had intervened saving his life as mountain trolls had interrupted the execution enabling his escape alongside the destruction of his village.

The havoc that wrecked the province by the mountain trolls proved a perfect opportunity for Uther to prove his mantel in leadership by fighting off both the Count's authorities(since he was an ineffective ruler) and the mountain trolls; defeating both in the process with a great personal losses. Being recognized of value of leading a successful defense against invading savage creatures and a peasant revolt can grant a man an ambiguous reputation to say the least; instead of getting hanged he was awarded by given apprenticeship as a imperial clerk in the capital by the Empress herself.

It took many years for Uther to climb up the imperial bureaucracy's ladder granted both ennoblement and great status within the palace itself. For the last two decades he has influenced the usher of a "Tranquil Age" mostly peaceful and economic growth that would soon be over, fear looms in the shadows over the Regency Council he oversees.

RP Example: I have none unfortunately, since this is a new account

Have some ideas to kickstart real drama if you are interested

The aim for my character would be mostly trying to solve a possible "succession crisis" since there would be other contenders on the throne over lord Jonathan XIV, to many resolving the issue is straightforward but apparently the is not overtly the case.

Just few days before before the new Emperor(Jonathan ofc) is crowned, his enemies assassinate the Lord-Regent and it is revealed Jonathan is indeed a Daemon worshipper. Naturally he denies but still leads to war over the throne. Hope you find this proposal of interest.

Sounds like a good Idea. Seeing the lack of possible allies, every faction on our side helps

I was thinking of becoming a (formerly) very powerful general (still has a reasonable amount of troops) who could either be swayed by a faction or fabricate a claim himself.

Vampires are allowed, but are considered dangerous. Most of the Empire merely fears/loathes them, though the more fanatical/religious of them (especially the House Carnifex) views their very existence as heretical and Daemonic, and so purge vampires with extreme prejudice. A vampire noble is unheard of.

Tag. Seems pretty interesting.

I’ll probably do my usual “good martial, low intrigue.” kind of character. Are you looking for more characters that are landed or are unlanded characters okay?

APPLICATION:


Name: General Liecsturn von Draconia-Sterpol
Age: 49
Sex: Male
Race: "Mixed" Race. As in, takes abilities from dragonborn, vampires and humans. Mostly the latter two, but still carries an immense strength from dragonborn. His very rare race are known as the Draconians, named from the old land of Draconia.
Appearance: Image
Personality: Aggressive, Cunning, Dominant, Intimidating, Violent, Determined, Stalwart, Stubborn. He will often take tactics which make no sense to anyone else, but are carefully calculated. His combat style is one of overpowering, not speed. His way of war is often one known for its brutality and ruthless nature; he is feared by many as the bringer of death, like his father. He has no respect for those who are born into wealth and power, only those who truly show competence.
Skills: Battle strategy, combat, exceptional strength, intimidation, cunning
House: Head of the von Draconia-Sterpol house, one of military generals and a military general.
Loyalties: Has no loyalities but to himself
Biography: (Pre-Bio Note: Despite his mixed race, the Empire recruited him due to his exceptional combat and tactical ability, along with his noble heritage of the same.)

Born to the old, powerful yet small house of Draconia-Sterpol, he grew up to a military education, sparring with his brother in long and hard duels, some which could even last for hours. His brother was his greatest friend and he still is, however, his brother, at one point, almost died on the battlefield during a war a long time ago. His brother told him to leave him, and so he did. He still does not know whether his brother is still alive or not, but he fears the worst. Anyway, back to Liecsturn. After training hard and long during his childhood (of which he remembers little of), he, as is customary, fought the Draconia-Persnacht's (their rival house) heir to the death, and so he did, and won, but took a devestating blow to the head, leading to him losing many of his childhood memories. After this, he got accepted by the Emperess as a commander, following his father's request and her assessment. He soon proved himself to be a worthy asset, even becoming a war advisor to the Empress, due to his amazing combat skills and great head for tactics. He fought several wars for many years, earning both the respect and fear of many people in the Empire. After the death of the Empress and the Empire, he rounded up his soldiers, and got ready to find someone worthy of the throne. However, he may declare himself a military dictator if he is discontent with all candidates.

I'll be reviewing your apps/questions soon. Please give me a moment. I have no general preference for who people app as, but the more Lords/Ladies, the merrier the beginning is going to be since a lot of the early plot is likely to revolve around the meeting at Imperial City.

Will the general be allowed to attend? Despite not being a lord, he is a high-ranking officer and was appointed directly by the former Empress.

Generally, orcs are similar to most other fantasy orcs - giants with varying shades of green skin. Little variation other than that.

Imperial society views “greenskins” in much the same way as they view most other non-human races: generally inferior unless they prove otherwise.

The former Dreadlands on the southwestern edge of the continent are the most populated by Orcs.
