Ball of Lonesome Hearts (OOC|Semi-Open)

Postby Romilija » Mon Oct 03, 2022 8:47 am

Neda III, by the grace of God Holy Roman Empress. To all the noble peers, peeresses, and princes of the Christian world, greetings.

My sister Marija, or as she is known, Marija, Vice-Queen of the Netherlands, will be having her 24th birthday this 10th of October. She was insistent that we invite the nobility to a ball on the occasion.
Hence, I extend this invitation to all adult members of the Christian noble peerage, both in the Empire and outside it; to both those belonging to our world and those hailing from outside it, to attend a grand Ball to be held at the Archducal Hall in Wien. His Highness the Archduke of Austria was most kind to provide us with the venue.

My sister requested that I especially encourage the young and unmarried nobility to attend.
Marriage is an indissoluble bond of love between two persons. Like all the other sacraments of the Church it reflects the unbreakable love Christ has for his people.
I share my sister’s belief that young members of the Christian nobility should participate in the beautiful sacrament of Matrimony, and thus express my wish that the young lords and ladies in attendance use this opportunity to forge bonds among their peers, in the hope that these bonds may lead to lasting friendships, and, God willing, happy and fruitful marriages.
Attached is an application form for the party. If you wish to attend, please fill it out and mail it back to us. I enthusiastically await your response.

Hi! This is an idea that's been going around in my head for a few days now. If everything works out, this will be my first roleplaying experience here in NS, and I hope to share it with you!
For a bit of reasoning as to why this is happening, you might want to read this dispatch. It may seem unrelated, but it isn't, believe me.
The Imperial Family is hosting a ball to commemorate a birthday, and you're invited. Well, provided that you're a noble. If not, then you're not invited, sorry to say. If you are invited, you can expect drinks, conversation, and, of course, ballroom dancing. Oh, and a lot of people. Maybe even the start of a romance, if you play your cards right?
Of course, there are rules, both IC and OOC. (See above for IC rules.)
1. Follow NS rules, of course.
2. Follow general roleplay etiquette. No godmodding etc etc.
3. There are a number of NPCs. I will control them.
4. This is a modern-day (MT) RP. Nevertheless, so long as your nation's universe doesn't deviate so much from the modern day (for example, 1970s or slightly post-modern) it will probably be fine here, though it's a case-to-case basis.
5. Character rules:
5.1. Only nobility are allowed to attend the party. Whether they are a member of a minor noble family or your country's royal family doesn't matter, both count as noble.
5.2. No kids allowed at the party.
5.3. With a hard limit of 3 characters, players can bring a main character who may be accompanied by 1 additional character maximum. See rule 5.4 for rules on additional character.
5.4. A main character may come to the RP event with one additional character, who will act as their main character's chaperone. This may be an aide, interpreter, relative, or what have you. Unlike the main character, they do not have to be a member of nobility.
5.5. No non-human characters. If you're unsure if your character counts as human, ask me about it beforehand.
6. No need for long posts, but going into detail a bit helps.
7. Feel free to engage in drunken brawling. Just don't kill anybody.
8. To keep things simple, have your characters start out in the entrance hall. Here is a floorplan for your reference. Black boxes indicate doors, crossed out boxes indicate doors to restricted areas:
Image

9. These rules are subject to change at any time at my discretion.


The RP has started, you can find the IC thread here. At this time I am already accepting registrations however. (EDIT: Though registrations are still open and will remain open for the duration of the RP, I will be stricter with future applications, as the main registration period has lapsed.) Register your character by filling out the application form above and sending it in this OOC thread. If you have any questions about the rules, or anything else, don't hesitate to make a post on this thread. If I don't respond to a question or application, I am likely asleep or busy. I will get back to you ASAP when I am able to. Cheers! :)

Hi, Romilija,
first of all, welcome to the Roleplaying Forums!
Second of all, I have a couple of questions to sound out my options for who to bring. Please keep in mind, that I have two other main nations, both perfectly normal MT human nations as well (and a Christian Theocracy, though that one's a minor nation), which I could bring in, as reserve plans.
So, here we go:
    1. Only suitors are required to be Christian, for normal attendees, anything goes?
    2. In how far do you allow more fantastical elements? If you are familiar with the anime Strike Witches, my plan would be to bring in a Witch of noble birth from the High Kingdom of the Selkie (alternate FanT-canon of this main nation of mine).
    3. In howfar are traditional costumes, like for instance the good ol' Dirndl, considered to be appropriate or do we have to bust out the ol' ballroom dress?
    4. I get, that this is mostly a romance/courtship RP, but political and/or economic dealings in the cards as well?

Thank you for a reply in advance,
mfg,
Selks
I play PT, MT and a bit FT. I am into character-RPs.
My people are called the Selkie, the nation is usually called the Free Lands in MT-settings. Thanks.

Hello Selkie, thank you for the warm welcome!
The Selkie wrote:1. Only suitors are required to be Christian, for normal attendees, anything goes?

Yes, just like you put it: given the whole recently-discovered-multiverse thing and how there are so many myriad faiths across it, non-Christians are welcome to attend, but non-Christians looking to court are of course going to have trouble trying to court any of the people here. And, this may go without saying, but they are asked to be respectful of our differing beliefs.
2. In how far do you allow more fantastical elements? If you are familiar with the anime Strike Witches, my plan would be to bring in a Witch of noble birth from the High Kingdom of the Selkie (alternate FanT-canon of this main nation of mine).

The witches in the anime you linked don't seem so out of place in this setting. If your Witch's abilities are on the same scope, then I think they will be fine for this RP. The cut-off point for fantasy elements in this RP, I think, would be full-on fantasy races like fairies, orcs, dwarves, elves, or whatnot. So, humans only. (Let me add it to the rules, actually.)
3. In howfar are traditional costumes, like for instance the good ol' Dirndl, considered to be appropriate or do we have to bust out the ol' ballroom dress?

Though most nobles (in our universe, at least) will simply opt for the regular fashionable ballroom clothing, guests are most welcome to come wearing the traditional costumes proper to their lands. Whatever the clothing worn however, it should be appropriate for formal occasions.
4. I get, that this is mostly a romance/courtship RP, but political and/or economic dealings in the cards as well?

Her Majesty is certainly open to discussing these things, but asks that those wishing to do so indicate that on the application form beforehand, so that all the necessary preparations can be made. And that they not come solely for business matters. It's her sister's birthday, for goodness sake, everyone should try to enjoy themselves!

Fancy meeting you here, Selks :p

And like he said, welcome to the forums Romilija! Question: do you have any preference regarding application types? Like, would it be cool if I sent a certain someone and her boyfriend as a purely diplomatic gesture or do you want me to come up with a Christian house on the fly (to be violently beaten into canon conformity later) and go for romance?

No, she only has the one sister. That's not to say that there aren't any fine young men in attendance. In fact I wrote a couple of characters for this occasion to fill that role. Folks need folks to dance with, after all ;) )

Thank you, Brettenwald! You are of course free to apply however you wish, but given the nature of the invitation, I personally think it would be cool if there were more players playing Christian characters than non-Christian characters. Still, whatever you think will be more fun for you is fine with me!

Having worked out a plausible backstory with a friend over Discord for a Christian character, I can probably do both :p

Thank you for the compliment, it is a lot of fun to write for the... by now disturbingly high number of varieties I have of the Selkie... Anyway, I like it, when people like my creation! : D
And indeed, people need to be danced with and maybe even wrapped around the finger. ; )
That all being said... thank you for accepting Enid. It's going to be fun!

Indeed it is, Brettenwald! Splendid it is, even, I dare say!
However, I must address one elephant in the room: Enid is not your normal garden variety Selkie, but from the High Kingdom. If whoever you send knows he "normal" Selkie (heh... Selkie and normal... ; )), she or he's gonna be in for a bit of a surprise.

Factbook completion will occur when hell freezes over and this nation is basically what happens at 3 AM when I overdose on Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Game of Thrones. Trans rights or you're getting kneecapped.
Center-right largely-absolute monarchy populated by the majority-pagan descendants of a mix of Vikings, Iron Age German rednecks and the odd shipwreck survivor coming into its own on the world stage during the final stages of a 32-year watershed moment under the watchful eye of an emperor who was never supposed to be one. Strict MT, current year though lore posts are generally asynchronous. Brettain is a catchall demonym, flag waifu by Polish Prussian Commonwealth, NS stats not canon.

Hospe is pretty much if an island nation with West African tribes made the unanimous decision to adopt English culture and became a bunch of monarchists.

I did two apps because I didn't know if a married couple comes, one counts as a chaperone or not.
Also, if I'm accepted, I have a surgery programmed for next week, so depending on when the RP starts, I may take some time to start depending on the repercussions.

(Hello Astares! Someone coming with their spouse would count as 1 guest and 1 chaperone. If you're delayed, I completely understand. Security will always be at the entrance to welcome late-comers. Anyway—)

"Most esteemed Prince and Princess Blachkor,
We are honored that the two of you would join us at the Grand Ball. Upon arriving at the Archducal Hall, please submit to the security posted there so that they can verify your identity and perform necessary security measures."
Wishing you a safe travel,
Marija.

Hope to see you there,
Marija.


Upon further inspection, the envelope appears to conceal another, smaller note. It reads, in the same handwriting as the letter:

"To Prince Daniel, who will be in attendance at the grand ball on the 10th.

Your Highness, I would like to reiterate that I am glad that you are able to join us. There is something that I wish to tell you, about a matter that is of great importance to me. Once you have verified your identity with the security at the entrance, please ask for Engelbert Boltzmann, and tell him that you are expecting a message from me. He will give you a paper with further information. I would greatly appreciate if you consider the contents therein."

The note ends there, signed at the bottom with a signature that looks hastily done.

Her Imperial Majesty requests that you come early, before the main event has started, so she can meet you as soon as you arrive."
Best regards,
Marija.

Factbooks and dispatches (which are works in progress) are the primary source of information for my nation. I try to have my stats match my idea of my nation but I think policies are the stat I can control the most.

I don't dislike anyone here. Agree or disagree, we're all compadres. :-)

1) given how the prussian-polish nobility works? genuinely fuck no.
2) all my unarmed characters are either nowhere near important enough to attend or still, technically, stuck in TFF's thread.

the worst part of all this was that for once the character in mind was carrying a sword, not a gun
