"In Marika's own words. The Erdtree governs all. The choice is thine. Become one with the Order. Or divest thyself of it. To wallow at the fringes; a powerless upstart."


Welcome to the Lands Between. It's a place you may know, with locations that are familiar, but it is not the blasted Kingdom ready to be claimed by a lowly Tarnished. This is the Golden Age of the Erdtree, when the god-monarchs of Leyndell were at the height of their power, and the Elden Ring remained whole. It's a different world, a more ordered one. For many though, not necessarily a better world.

Some years have past since Radagon Of The Golden Order, Marika's most zealous hound, abandoned the Carian Queen, Rennala, and returned to Leyndell to become Elden Lord.

Queen Marika The Eternal sealed away death itself into the blade of her half-brother Maliketh.

Also sealed are two of her sons by the exiled Lord Godfrey. The Omen twins, Morgott and Mohg, are shackled in the sewers below the royal capital while their brother Godwyn is hailed as a war hero.

Then, there are the children of the new union between Marika and Radagon. The twin prodigies, Malenia and Miquella brim with power, but also terrible curses. Miquella is trapped in eternal childhood, while his sister's body has begun to rot, her limbs collapsing from her body. The people can clearly see something is wrong with the younger demigods, and curses are on everyone's minds. There are so many Omen in the sewers. Even as few survived the excision of their horns, those that dwelled in servitude or screamed from the sewers at night put the haughty citizens of Leyndell on edge. There is not unrest, not yet, but something has to be done.

Perhaps, one of her omen spawn could still be of use.

'No unrest' cannot be said for the lands of Liurnia below the plateau. The Carian royal family face its own problems. It has been some years since Radagon left for the capital, and his former wife Rennala has grown all the more unstable in the years since his departure. Despite the attempts of her and Radagon's children to keep some order in hope of their mother's recovery, Ranni, Radahn and Rykard have all had their own business to attend to, and the sorcerers of Raya Lucaria have grown weary of the Carians. The Knights Of The Cuckoo and the scholars have their own plans to wrest power from the Queen and the demi-gods.

Ranni, even moreso than her brothers, faces the daunting prospect of her own Empyrean nature. As the Golden Order grows more brutal, she faces the inevitability of one day becoming a tyrant herself, a puppet as much as a puppeteer.

Or is there another way? Perhaps, but the cost would be so terrible the world's fate could be even worse than the brutality of the Golden Order. A corruption of death itself...





Hello! I'm Hyades and I'd like to welcome you to Age Of The Erdtree. This is an Elden Ring roleplay set during what some might consider the 'golden age' of the Lands Between, though for most concerned the big tree is the only golden part. Treachery, rebellion, madness and genocide, all of them are rife in this place.

Age Of The Erdtree is set in the period leading up to the Night Of The Black Knives less about religiously sticking to every bit of lore and matching up with the canonical timeline, and more about using the situation as a jumping-off point for a potentially similar, or different set of events. I'm not going to force you to follow the canon timeline of history, or indeed nitpick details unless they have some knock-on for anyone else. Will the Black Knives still triumph? Who knows?

The RP will, of course, feature some canon characters. We're not restricting to that though. There's a lot of space in the Lands Between for stories not captured in the scraps of history found in game. It would be fascinating seeing some perspectives from the less-famous individuals.




Rules


1) Standard RP rules apply. Hopefully you know more or less what those are.
2) I won't be imposing any hard minimums on post length. While you should always give people enough to work with, I respect people's right to take a Hemingway approach and make impact without going into too much detail if the situation permits it. If someone isn't giving you enough to go on, feel free to call them on it. Just make sure your post advances the story.
3) I don't tend to gun for posting orders unless things get extremely fast or chaotic. If things get too wild in one scene, there might be grounds to impose one, but there's likely to be a few scenes taking place at once, so there's no reason to hold all of them up.
4) Please wait until sheets are approved before you put them in the Character tab. For the most part sheets are looked at as far as what makes sense in the setting and/or with other characters, so don't consider any queries to be a bad thing.
5) Elden Ring lore is super open to interpretation, so please refer to the 'Lore Notes' area for anything I've included that's potentially murky or debatable before you start an idea, so we're all on the same page. Anything not included there you're welcome to use whatever headcanon your heart desires.
6) If people end up playing Mohg and Miquella, specifically the two characters interacting, I beg of you please keep it tasteful and keep in mind that the whole dynamic is not supposed to be a good one.

As for me? I'm probably going to play characters that are convenient to whatever storyline gets going. I have a few ideas in mind but I think I might build around the foundations of whatever we get going. Honestly there are so many potentially interesting roles I feel a bit spoiled for choice.

@Zyx I love that. Frenzy-touched dragon is a truly horrifying prospect.

@POOHEAD189 The interest is appreciated regardless!

Maybe I'll play a noble who seeks to further his power by seeking power via the frenzied flame or by spreading it to other houses. Or something else..

I realize that the merchants/great caravan and their relationship with the frenzy would also be potential material.

Provided Marika hasn't gaslight gatekeep girlboss genocided them yet. I forget where that goes in the timeline.

Haven’t decided what I want to do yet but I’m leaning towards a spell slinging Jar at the moment. Not sure though so it might be a bit before I get a CS up.

I LOVED Elden Rings' story, a bit more hopeful than what FirmSoft usually does, even if the gameplay was a little meh. I would like to join this RP. If it is still going forward and the roster is not full?
