From Sanctuary Shard

(Redirected from KingdomsPageRedirect)

There are five Kingdoms. The setting of the world is from a time period where kings rise and fall within years. Each kingdom will have a great house which is currently on the throne. There may then be another 1 to 3 Great Houses per kingdom which will be able to play RPCSS, competing for the individual thrones or control of the whole world. Banner houses will be fictional and will not play in RPCSS.

Noble Houses

For maximum political role-play potential players should sort themselves into noble houses in much the same way that Game of Thrones does. There will be between 5 and 10 Great Houses plus numerous banner houses. To keep the game balanced, there will need to be a nearly equal number of Great Houses in each kingdom. This isn't necessarily easy to accomplish as players tend to lump together. We will do our best to balence the natural flow of role-play while keeping it from becoming too lopsided. Leaders of kingdoms and great houses will need to be prepared to build allies within or without of their own kingdoms.

To begin I will be taking submissions from players who want to create or run a noble house. From this list of applications I will pick who will start as the ruling great house for each Kingdom, which houses will be Great Houses and which ones will be banner houses. Read More ...
