The Fall of Oriel

The Fall of Oriel Visit

Site | Lore | Rules | Discord

Quenquerre is the capital of Oriel, an empire established thousands of years ago by supernatural interlopers who call themselves thaumaturges. No one knows where they came from, not even the thaumaturges themselves. Nor does anyone remember a time when the native human population did not live either under their thumb or, at the outskirts of Oriel’s holdings, in fear of encroaching colonization.

But the empire is waning. Slowly, the spirits of magic are fading, either dying out or going somewhere else. Other forces press in at its edges, and unrest simmers. It’s a time of great turmoil and social — as well as technological — change.

For the ruling thaumaturges, this brings unrest and uncertainty. Will they be able to hold onto their dominance? For the humans of Oriel, this brings opportunity and uncertainty in equal measure. What does a future look like free from thaumaturge rule after all this time?

Four Playable Character Classes

Will you play a human or a thaumaturge? Or an obliviate, those thaumaturges whose bodies reject symbiotes, leaving them incapable of magic and prone to dangerous side-effects? Or a maledict, a life cursed — or blessed — to “steal” the life of someone else?

A creative magic system.

Everything in the world, including living things, is made up of spirits. Thaumaturges literally ingest these spirits, taking them on as symbiotes and using them to command other spirits. Humans, who see this as abominable, have their own ancient tradition of magic instead.

No activity checks or word count!

Our priority is on ensuring everyone is having a good time, at whatever pace and length suits the writers involved. Whether that’s 1+ per character per day or 1+ per month, as long as everyone in the thread is happy, so are we. 

Collaborative Writing-Focused

If you happen to want some randomness or external motivation, or want a mod to take on some NPCs in your thread, you have options, and you’re welcome to organize something yourself. But whatever you want, if you want a storytelling “sandbox”, you’re in the right place; there’s only as much structure as you want there to be.

MORTALUM

MORTALUM Visit

Welcome to Mortalum, a world with a dark and mysterious past. Six hundred years ago, according to the the holy tablet of the high archon, the world was in chaos. A bitter war of epic proportions threatened to end all life. The Lich King and his armies swarmed across the world. But in our darkest hour, the mortal god ascended from amongst his people. Uniting the many races of the land under one banner. Ever since, the kingdom continues to guard against the ever present threat of war. Many centuries later and the realm finds itself on the edge of civil war. A conflict that threatens to destroy what little unity remains. Bandits threaten travelers on the road, piracy consumes the seas and monsters infest the land. But a darker threat arises in secret, a shadow beneath us all.

Realms Forgotten: Aurea

Realms Forgotten: Aurea Visit

Aurea, a land crafted so delicately and dutifully by her Gods, has thrived for over a millennia with only the slightest bit of strife. Civilizations blossomed, harvests cultivated, and stories of heroes were told to any who would listen. And yet, as the seasons seem to pass, strife has taken hold. Prayers go unanswered, ailments unhealed. The heart of Fairdenn, Aurea’s trading continent, has fallen victim to the assaults of outlaws and bandits harassing its busiest routes, and the curious seasonal bonfires that keep appearing seem to coincide with the cities’ populace going missing. Magic, gifted freely, has gone without a price being paid. While there are those that preach this terror from the rooftops, it seems that Aurea has been abandoned by her creators. What will happen to this land? Only time can tell.

Our first ever site event to celebrate our grand opening is now live!

Realm of Mirador

Realm of Mirador Visit

Old school type of roleplay that is play by post, there can be live play as well if that is desired via Discord (which I despise, lol, but will do it.) . It is medieval fantasy play about a realm named Mirador and all the places and faces that can happen in a realm. To be honest I am looking for a partner to write with, or a small group who is willing to play different characters. It’s a thing of the past it seems, but if anyone remembers the days of Rhydin, and the Kingdoms, please drop me a line and let me know if you’re interested. Lots of story characters to choose from or you can make your own. Imagination and freedom are the key words in Mirador. Website, forum and Discord channel available.
