Map


The son of Heaven... He who is trusted by his father to guide the people. His duty is a noble and brave one, yet he is tempted, always by those who would weaken him in exchange for his pleasure. Usurpation comes not just from without, but within. Many have fought others, to claim this title, this responsibility. More so have fallen. And, those who claim this title, themselves are usurped by their Demons. Thus, the cycle continues. This is how it has always been, and how it always will be..


Welcome to this RP, Dynasties of Heaven, set in China from 1600BC to Present! It follows the stories of many Would-be Rulers and Government Officials, and Warlords trying to gain power or maintain the status quo, with Dynasties rising and falling over thousands of years. If this interests you, this is all the info you need, jump in! As many characters allowed as you want, but only one warlord barring ideas like succession crises, splits, etc. agreed upon relevant players.(Map coming soon)


Out of 100 each.
Leader=General Effectiveness at leading troops
Valor=Skill at Combat
Duel=Dueling ability against other Officers/Generals
Intellect=Strategic/analytical Intellect
Politics=Skill at Domestic and Court Politics(If one is high in Domestic but not Court, it is reduced by 1/4th.)
Foreign=Diplomatic Strategy Skill and Diplomatic Ability
Charisma=Ability to sway people to your side, whether Peasant or Noble, etc. Social Skills don't matter that much unless it hampers this ability specifically.

These are used mostly for flavor, to give a sense of who will be famed for what in history, and give a general idea of your character.
They are not decisive in any regard, just useful as getting a general idea for your characters-especially minor ones.
Also useful if your bio is not descriptive of their abilities for whatever reason. If you have a OP character it means jack sh*t, as it's for reference and flavortext. Also because the game series I played had these stats...So.... :p

Just as a note, how you act decides how long your dynasty lasts but no longer than 600 years!(Even then 600 is top-tier, most last 100-200, with unlucky ones from 10-80 usually).

IC thread will be up after the map is done-which will be easy-and we choose the dynasty name!

And preferably 5 players.

It's ok.

This rewrites the entire history of China.

It's been my dream RP for a long time and this time I think I nailed it.

What do y'all guys think, is it good enough to last for a long time and be a epic RP?

Bio: Rin Tao was born to a poor peasant family that had worked along the yellow river for multiple generations. His father would attempt to raise him in the family craft of agriculture however it would quickly become apparent that the young child had an almost unnatural knack for problem solving and learning. Rin would learn the language of his people by the age of two and would immediately delve into mathematics and other unique fields of knowledge. As a side effect of his unique abilities, Rin became a social outcast within his community as he refused to work on anything other than his own pursuits of science. His father made a great effort to focus him towards a life of work however the young Rin would run away at the age of 12 and would never again be seen by his family. Rin made his way along the yellow river until he found a small cave which he made his home for the next several years. Rin would further his own studies in the natural world around him using nothing but his mind and a few tools that he would steal from local villages at night. He would learn to rely entirely on himself but would show a unique kindness to strangers who found him for he relished in the activity of sharing knowledge with the youth and aged of China. He would often preach of nonviolence and self reliance amongst nature which garnered him the attention of various villages that would begin to see him as a gift from heaven. Rin Tao, now 50 years old, will now witness the transformation of China at the hands of warlords and demons alike.

My dude has literally zero interest in those other things though... A monk for instance should not have any skills in politics or warfare lol
