Welcome to Aquitaine, an intermediate to advanced Alternate History role-playing game. This game takes place during the year of 1514 in the newly established country of Aquitaine and its European neighbours, and will eventually expand further into the future. There will be good times and bad times for the characters here as they enter a time rife with as much pleasure as there is peril. We hope you decide to join and become part of our RP-ing family!
When registering please do so with the first and last name of your character.
Our chatbox is at the bottom of the site and guest friendly, so pop in and say hi if you're thinking of joining or have any questions! We'd love to meet you!
"Emma loved people, and if she could make them happy, that was good enough for her."
Emma Hirst is the youngest daughter of the Hirst family, and has never aspired to anything beyond her God-given station in life. Quiet and kind-hearted, the girl goes about her business in a compassionate and muted manner, entirely unaware of the ambitious plans being made for her by her family. A friendly, innocent person, she brings a balance to the more rough-around-the-edges characters prevalent on the board. No matter what's going on, one can trust that Emma will be looking for the silver lining of the situation.
Quote of the Week
The people, chaos, ran all around,
And no one could nail sanity down.
The building, it just burned to the ground.
You heard it here, the place is changed.
I'm telling you, the place is changed.
While recovering from a mauling in the field Commander Shaft's Iscariot Legion has set up camp near an old Monastery in England. During a routine trip to the nearby town for supplies their man Thurgold was assaulted and injured by highwaymen. One naive failed-monk, Galahad stepped in to play the role of good Samaritan and helped get the man back to his friends. Now the quiet and kind doctor must deal with the Iscariot's cold commander and its most eccentric scout, Ace, if he wants to continue his role as nurse and bring his healing touch to the ill-used men of the mercenary-legion.
Year of our Lord: 1514
Season: Summer Weather: This is the season where the sun is almost always out and shining. Sea travel during the Summer is much safer than during the Winter, and many take advantage of this fact. Expect hot weather, soaring temperatures, and even the occasional light shower.
Welcome to Dheynor, brave traveler. You have chosen a bad time for your visit. The realm bleeds as it has never bled before. In the north, the Emperor has died, leaving the dogs to squabble and fight over the remains of his kingdom. His sister, Lady Marei, has set up a matriarchy in the east. In the west, the Crouching Tiger is growing bolder by the day. In the south, the old kings of Dheynor still weave their plots and make castles in the air. Nothing is going as it should. And it does not end there. There are bad tidings from outside, too. I have heard the sailors talk about how the traders of Enden are starting to crave our land. You're not from Enden, are you? Good, good. And I hear the Prince in Chreina is starting to make his move too. These are distubed times, young traveler. You still wish to stay? Well, you're braver than me, I'll give you that. Come to Dheynor, but blame me not if you do not make it out again.
Hi there! I'm Des, the admin of the Land of Dheynor, and we'd love to have you on our site. Are you wondering why you should pick us, and not all the other sites out there? First of all, we have a friendly, welcoming community. We like new people and we'll do our best to get them integrated into our site and our plots. (But don't take my word for it! Post in our guest friendly board, or request a site tour.) Second, Dheynor is a really rich, dynamic world – with everything from popular sayings to currencies, and we have a lot going on – things that you can get involved in by participating in our scenarios. Last but not least, we're huge believers in quality over quantity, so we have no word counts and applications that are as long or short as you want them to be. I hope you'll give us a look!
