Vauxdvihl, also known as the Starlands, is a large imperial kingdom located in the far east of the central continent. It’s known for its diverse geography ranging from the rocky wall-like mountains in the north to the soft rolling hills and riverlands in the south, its expansive melting pot of culture, and their devotion to the god of embers, Solaris, who is represented by the dawnstar. The kingdom can be found in the southeast of the continent, as the last stretch of civilization before tides consume the realm.
This section should include geography, weather, flora and fauna of your nation, as well as include the capital. Your geography should match your location on the map in relation to the equator and your distance from the sea. It bears mentioning that unnatural creatures like dire beasts and the like are allowed, though I will be picky about what can be tamed.
This should be more generally informative of the country's past and how it has affected their culture than a list of dead kings and globally inconsequential events. I encourage players to collaborate and create shared history.
Hoo boy. This section should be the largest, and cover as many facets of their culture you can think of. I don't just wanna know their clothes and religion, I want to know what their food is like, how other countries view them, what their view of death is, and so on. Do they use beds or rollout futons to conserve space? Do they bathe normally, or is regularly being submerged in water considered unhealthy? Are there foods associated with a holiday? Do they duel over honor or legal matters? You get the picture.
Aside from the general "They have a lot of foot soldiers, a few mounted soldiers, and some archers" tell me how their military is different than any other military, and do it without listing any numbers. Do they ride something besides horses or sail something besides galleys? Do they make use of psychological, biological, or economic warfare? Do they take prisoners? Things like that. If this section includes some bullshit special group of a hundred that uses two swords because they went to sword college or something like that, see yourself to the door.
In the simplest terms, what do you import and export? Do you make a lot of things, or just one thing? Is your country in debt to another? Geography and culture will play a role here. Also, no country is self sufficient.
Don't just give me your trade relations you god damn minmaxer. Tell me what your peoples get called by racists, what your country's relation to the rest of the world is, what the popular image of your country is as a whole, etc. That, and y'know, those trade relations.
Depiction of the Divine Matriarch of House Gothlunmir, Protector of the Realm, and Avatar of the Dawn: Kieamiera fon Gothlunmir
House Gothlunmir is the ruling dynasty of the Divine Kingdom of Vauxdvihl, and has asserted their dominance on imperial politics for the last five centuries. Their predecessors, House Radegundis, lost favor amongst the public following a sequence of self-absorbed incompetent rulers that cumulated in a bloody war. Ultimately, the Dawn favored House Gothlunmir’s righteousness as wardens of the smallfolk and the Radegundis Dynasty faded from history.
A list of the people in your country's royal family, starting with the king and ending with the youngest heir.
If you were waiting for a section to put a weirdly specific strength, this is it. Houses can have military traditions and thus focus on making their heirs study tactics, or have artistic traditions, or have their strength not be related to a tradition at all. Maybe they have a really cool boat. Maybe they breed weird animals. Anyway, feel free to lean on the fantasy tagline here a little and use your imagination.
I’ve sort of been doing this “writing with people on the internet” thing for way too long to be proud of. That’s not a jab at this shared hobby of ours, but just a weird sort of way I look at how I’ve sunk a lot of time into practically the best hobby ever. For most of you, you guys know me as Gowi and I like to write anything from slow-paced to mid-paced in a multitude of genres with a variety of ideas. I’m generally partial to small-to-large groups but I’m no alien to 1x1’s.
I’m not impartial toward any sort of genre as I take the approach of going into a setting with an open mind. I love character creation, world-building, character development, narrative strength, proving the trope can be written well, and having a taste of every cake on the dinner table.
Most importantly before you proceed you should know my central roleplaying credence—
Roleplaying should focus on developing interesting and complex characters that become part of plot-lines which catch the imagination and inspire the writer behind them to exercise creativity. It is mature, humorous, imaginative, tragic, terrifying, passionate, and rife with descriptive language and characters with real personality and relatable cares. Quality posting is far better than needless novels, yet one should never neglect detail when one feels the need. However, while word and paragraph requirements ought to be unnecessary, single paragraphs cannot contain enough detail to suffice.
My writing level is “casual” to “advanced” and I can write solid paragraphs and dialogue depending what is needed or how my creativity is flaring. Depending what the scene is and what I’m given you can get something short or something long. I can write characters of either gender /sexuality, it really doesn’t matter to me. After a while writing female characters, adolescents, elders, and stuff in-between I like to think I’m a fairly decent writer all-around when it comes to identity.
I’m also indifferent towards taboos, I’ve written a lot of those and deconstructed a lot of things regarded as the “norm”.
My schedule fluctuates and varies on my workload for group RPs and real life responsibilities—but I won’t abandon you unless complete interest has dropped and if that happens I will let you know where I stand to see if we can direct the RP before disbanding it. My timezone is -4 UTC aka EST.
With that in mind, I’m set to invisible so people don’t consistently harass me; there is a difference from reminding me that it’s been a week or so without a post and its another to presume myself being online requires me to give you my attention exclusively. It is good to remember I have other friends, RP priorities, and hobbies. With that in mind, I will do my best to be cordial and respectful towards you as my partner so give me the same rope.
Ultimately, here are some key notes— I prefer to RP through threads, I don’t do shameless smut yet am not afraid of mature themes, I expect to get what I give on an average rate, and I am pretty flexible. If you prefer to drive the plot, want to have equal leadership, or myself to drive it please let me know so neither of us come in with fickle presumptions.

K-ON! Star Trek Star Wars
The problem with me is I’m generally “down” for all flavors of genre, theme, and narrative. I like plots that are imaginative, heartfelt, adventurous, suspenseful, clever, gripping, and fun. I am not looking for a RP that has all of the above, so keep in mind to catch my attention somehow.
As long as it’s not tasteless erotica-tier smut.
I’m equally as invested in original concepts, intriguing interpretations of official works, or by the cusp “pretty much fanfiction”. I prefer original characters, but I am always down for interpreting a classic canon as long as I’m familiar with them— if I’m not I might make it a bit wildly different. But then again I might make it wildly different if I know the source material just the same, haha. You can hook me with anime, video games, literature, cinema, and all sorts of fun shit. Surprise me.
Currently any plots I have will be in hiders and any moodlets will be in the quote above. If it is blank I am either lazy or up for whatever.
Ideally this is just an interpretation where Joffrey is depicted as a honorable asshole over a psychopathic moron.
I play Joffrey, we can decide from that if people want to play Sansa, Arya, or an OC.
An AU taking place during the beginning years of the Hundred Years War that engulfs the world of Avatar. Aang is killed during the assault on the Air Nomads, and sixteen years later a North Water Tribe girl named Pana is left with a world that is as insidious as it is chaotic.
I will be playing the character of said girl Avatar.
Basically, someone plays Rin and I play Izumo. We’d probably continue from the anime (or re-write it from a certain point?) and have fun shenanigans where I write a skillful tsundere with issues.
On an alternate Earth set between 1958 and 1962, humans are unaware of the supernatural and paranormal side of their world. Demons plot to open a portal to hell, the Templars struggle with a war with the Illuminati, Vampires struggle with their addiction to human blood as well as its effects, and everyone in-between has no fucking clue what is going on.
Depending what angle we go for I have a good few ideas. I have a world weary angel, a demon who just wants to be a crime boss, a reformed vampire who just wants her former coven to leave her alone, and a illuminati hunter who treats all "monsters" as monsters.
A zombie epidemic swallows a metropolitan city. Inspired by The Walking Dead, Resident Evil, and humans being terrible to each other.
I have a few characters I could use here; a idealistic beat cop, a old folk singer, a corrupt police detective, a self-absorbed salesman, and a shifty high school teacher. All male, oddly enough.
A galactic starship leaves the Republic of United Mars Colonies (UMAC) to explore the galaxy based on an experimental warp drive. What dangers are there in the void of space?
Very Stark Trek, very wow. No idea where we will go with it, but that is the fun of the last frontier, right?
A bunch of prisoners on a prison starship find themselves in a peculiar situation when they find themselves in control of their own destiny again. Inspired by Blake’s 7, bad people being good for once, and sci-fi pulp at its finest.
I will probably play either a female or male, depending on what is more dynamic for us.
I rip off the manga “Seven Deadly Sins” by wiping all the characters and reimagine it. I probably will ruin it.
Got a few ideas, one of which being a Kitsune who is the Sin of Envy.
The Triforce of Courage and Wisdom are shattered after a monstrous invasion of Hyrule turns the world into a dark fantasy nightmare. With the Hero of Time and Princess of Hyrule dead or missing, it is up to those who receive the shards to pick up the pieces and restore peace.
I have two character options: a Hylian Guard named Sibela and a Kokiri girl with a tiny bow.
The City of Townsville is gone—destroyed as a byproduct of a battle that even the combined might of the Powerpuff Girls and Rowdyruff Boys could not stop. In a hospital ward several weeks after the incident Blossom Utonium wakes to a world that is still grieving. She struggles with life, loss, and failure.
I play a interpretation of Blossom Utonium. We can build the idea from there with whichever character from there with the options being anything from Dexter to XJ9 to Danny Fenton.
