"King, high king, emperor, blah blah blah blah blah."

When are you suckers gonna learn that the best way to go about this is too just leave the empire lmao. Might have to have Atheo start raiding ships. Free income + unstoppable because home field advantage? Sign me up. Take some Krakens grab the nearest treasure galleons and drag them down too Atheo to bling out the city.

I may have just found an alternative too a bomb or massive vandalism act.

Makes me wonder if there should be a universal level of royalty rank.

Cause High King and King can be confusing if they were treated as the same rank.


Historically speaking, it would be something like this:

Emperor
King, High King, Grand or High Duke and Grand Prince
Duke, Prince and High Chief
Count, Earl and Chief. (Prince could fit here as well)
Baron and similar
Minor Nobles

The different names for the titles of the same rank would be mostly because of cultural differences.

(A prince would be the ruler of a principality)

I wonder if I should create a dukedom or kingdom out of Ravyrnyra or have the Lesser Vampire barons and counts still directly answer to the Emperor. I guess there's a general fear of a third Night King that prevented the organization of a more unified Vampire division in the Empire.

Your character would have to convince all of the minor lesser Vampire lords to get real support since there is no duke nor king to talk to.

IC post in the next few hours or so. I'll be reviewing applications and such in the meantime, and further update the Lore Post as well as the Roster as well.

Expect all of that to come to a conclusion/IC post around 4 PM Eastern Standard Time, barring unforeseen circumstances.

In Atheo, there is a massive miles deep prison called "The Pit" that has held the most notorious criminals in the undersea worlds for thousands of years, back before the empire even. No one really knows when the pit was started. But it had a warden who didnt age while in there, and when there where no more living prisoners he left. But, theres a monster who guards the pit and makes sure no one escapes. All I'm saying is it might be important to the plot later because it could be weaponized ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Terran Empire should not be afraid. If it bleeds, it can be killed

That is, if the OP accepts your monster

I put it in the lore for Atheo so I assumed so since it's in the lore page now.

Joke’s on you; we only have a single continent, so it won’t destroy trade, and then us land dwellers have another advantage: pollution.
You may be tough to fight in the water, but that won’t stop us from dumping our garbage and sewage at you if you cause trouble. Fyi, Kauashe will not hesitate to call them merfolk, btw.

You forget the many islands, including the "jewel of the empire." It wont look great if all of the taxes from one of the most affluent cities in the empire suddenly cant share.

All this assuming anything happens and a war does start. I doubt the empire would be in a position to go to war without a leader.
