Hello, Welcome, and Thank You for your Time!
This is a concept for a Low-Fantasy Roleplay I've had in mind for a short while now. It is a story of greed, treachery, vengeance, and dishonor. It tells the story of a young princess, future Queen of the Kingdom of Alvion, whose whole world is turned upside down and her birthright stolen away by her evil aunt, and how this forsaken princess cuts a bloody swathe across Alvion as she looks to reclaim what is rightfully hers and take revenge against her aunt, the Serpent Queen of Alvion. This will be a very dark and morbid story, a tale of vengeance by blood, and redemption at the point of a blade. Though it will have it's high points of morality and empathy, for the most part this will be a very brooding Dark Fantasy RP.
Read below for further details.
The primary protagonist, or main character of this RP, is the princess, whom my partner will role as. The princesses' father, King William Alderton of the Alderton bloodline, rules the Kingdom of Alvion from within the royal capital of Dalhorst. A widowed King, his only remaining family is his daughter, his sister Malva, and his young nephew Malcolm.
When King William's wife died in childbirth, instead of resenting his daughter, he named her that day as the rightful heir to the throne on his death, much to the bitterness of his sister Malva and her husband Ambrose, who died several years later after the birth of Malcolm. Since her birth, King William as raised his daughter as any King and any father should. He saw that she was tutored and highly educated, well mannered and properly tempered, and taught the duties and traditions of courtship and princesses. He showered her with love and gifts, at times at the behest of his advisors and the castle servants, not wanting the princess to be overly-entitled and spoiled, which she never was.
The storyline begins at a tournament. The King, the princess, Malva, and her son Malcolm are watching a jousting tournament on the day of the Spring Season Festival, a yearly festival held on the first day of Spring. Amidst the events, the King is poisoned by way of wine and dies within minutes right in front of his daughter.
After the King's funeral, the question of succession comes up. The court declares the princess to be the rightful heir, declared so by the King. Malva however argues the princess to be too young (she is aged between 13-16) and states that she must take the title of Queen of Alvion. Many of the nobles support Malva, as do many amongst the common-folk, believing such a young girl to be unfit for the title of Queen and easy to manipulate.
In the end, despite the King's wishes, Malva becomes Queen of Alvion with the help of her supporters, as well as additionally gained support via bribery and blackmail.
On the day of her coronation, an assassin makes an attempt on Malva's life, though he fails and escapes. Evidence is found in the princess's chamber (a forged dossier planted by Malva) that falsely implicates the princess in plotting to have Malva assassinated. The princess is arrested, tried unfairly, and jailed.
The story then basically time skips up to the princesses twentieth birthday. Malva arranged for the princess to be executed when she turns twenty, as her supporters stated it unwise for Malva to have a child executed, the former heir to the throne no less, immediately after her coronation as Queen, a title many believed she had wrongfully taken. Basically, for these past 7-4 years (character age dependent) the princess had rotted in the dungeons of Proud Spire Castle, a prisoner in her own home at the doings of her power hungry aunt.
Basically, on the day of her execution, the princess is freed by unknown allies whom soon reveal themselves to her, and promise to restore her to the throne as the rightful heir to Alvion. A feat this young princess will carry out with a bloody vengeance.
So then, I require a female partner to role as our unfortunate princess. I require someone who isn't squeamish or hesitant towards violence and negative character transformation. Someone who isn't bothered or conflicted by a pampered little princess becoming a vengeful, vindictive harpy. This RP won't be built solely upon violence and revenge, as I said far above it will hold other elements as well; innocence, bliss, romance, drama, and ect.
So, I await eagerly and hope to hear from someone, as I'm rather self-hyped about getting into this!
