The Kingdom is set in an AU fantasy world where one kingdom, fearing magic, threatens war against another kingdom that welcomes to magic users. The Resistance is gathering on both sides. In the midst of this, pirates run rampant, the clans just want to be left alone, and Otherworlders from Earth's past, present, and future occasionally drop in through various portals throughout the kingdoms. Where will you land? On which side will you fight? Join The Kingdom and find out today!
The Kingdom is an intermediate to advanced character-driven original steampunk fantasy RP that uses a seasonal site-wide plot. We encourage each writer to add to the site's canon by creating interesting characters and groups and lore. We place a high emphasis on strong writing styles and coherent, interesting plot-lines. If you enjoy writing, delving deep into plots, and creating dynamic characters, then you just might enjoy your stay here at The Kingdom.

A grey fog hovers over the Kingdoms. Days shift from pouring rain and dreary, dark grey, to days of intermittent showers and light grey clouds, to misty days with rays of sunlight and flashes of blue skies slipping between light grey clouds.
If you can manage it, bring an umbrella with you no matter what the skies look like when you leave your dwelling.

Aethaldrin is home to many small towns and out of the way cottages and farms, the people surviving, if barely in some cases, despite the magic and the creatures that run rampant within its borders.
Seeping across the midst of the Northern Kingdoms in a jagged oval, Lux sets itself apart from its neighbours not only with its particular prejudices, but also with its seeming lack of colour. As the primary exporter of Onyx stones, Lux's landscapes seem muted by the black mines dotted about and charcoal smoke that drifts across the countryside. The Moon River is the only spot of brightness in an otherwise monochrome seeming Kingdom known for emphasising its differences by painting over much of the natural colour that occurs within its borders with blacks and greys.
An independent city-state, Sky City is a haven for those who don't do well under the rule of a queen or emperor. Here there be pirates and cut-purses, as well as rebels and refugees. All are welcome, provided they can look after themselves or pay someone to do it for them.
From time to time, you might find yourself in-between kingdoms or, even, in-between worlds. This is where those in-between places are.
