Heat swarms across the kingdoms, making the days more and more uncomfortably warm. Evenings offer little respite, though early mornings can be comfortably cool. Arid regions will radiate with dry heat, while regions where greenery is prevalent will be stifled by humidity.

If you can manage it, stay indoors or in the shade as much as possible, or - better yet - only come out in the wee hours of the morning.

   The Guidebook

It can be overwhelming to join a new site, particularly one in the fantasy category, so we created a guide to help you become acquainted with the world of The Kingdom RP.

First Things First

If you haven't already, please peruse some current threads and accepted characters to see if TK is the sort of place on which you'd like to RP.

Once you've done this, the following guide will aid you on your journey to the character application.

The Basics

  1. We recommend starting with the Plot.
  2. The Rules is the next best place to go.

The Lore

If you're still interested in joining after going over The Basics, we recommend familiarising yourself with the Lore so that you have a good idea about the world before tossing your character into it.

It should be noted that we don't have a great deal of Lore so we would recommend reading all of it, if you're able. This would set you up in the best position to better understand and jump into the world we've created.

That being said, not all of the Lore is required reading for every writer, so if you feel overwhelmed by the number of links in that section, we have included a helpful guide below to required Lore specific to the sort of character you'd like to create.


Last, But Not Least

Finally, before creating your character, please ensure that you are familiar with the Required Reading for your type of character, the Character Creation Rules, and that you have read through Character Restrictions.


And that's it!

If, after reading these threads you still have questions pertaining to your character's creation, the F.A.Q. would be the place to either find the answers you seek or to make a previously unmade inquiry.

We love questions because they often help us as much as they help you! The Staff will be quite happy to get back to you as soon as we are able so that you can get to the writing part of your journey as soon as possible. ^-^

Required Reading

For Every Character:

Additional Required Reading for:

  Fae-Born Characters:
  • Fae-Born & Magic
  • Outsiders and Clans (Whether or not you intend for your character to live outside the kingdoms, it's good for you, as the writer, to have a working knowledge of these, even if your character does not.)
  • Black Coats (Whether or not you intend for your character to live in Lux, it's good to have a working knowledge of both Black Coats and their Onyx Stones, even if your character does not.)
  • Also, be sure to familiarise yourself with the Weapons category of the world's Technology so that you know what sort of weapons your character has at their disposal.
  Black Coats, other Constabulary, and Soldiers:
  • Black Coats (Even if you aren't intending to play a Black Coat, it's good to know the enemy - though your character may not be familiar with all of the available information.)
  • Airships
  • Also, be sure to familiarise yourself with the Weapons category of the world's Technology so that you know what sort of weapons your character has at their disposal.
  Characters who Travel Between the Kingdoms:
  • Whether your character travels for work or pleasure, it is best to understand how they'll get about, and the dangers that such journeys might pose.
  • Airships (Even if they journey on foot or by hansom, it is probably good to know the alternatives. If your character doesn't travel by airship, they choose a more dangerous way of travelling between kingdoms. Though, it is also true that many cannot afford to travel by airship, they would still understand the potential.)
  • Creatures (Your character will have more to contend with than other travellers or even bandits, pirates, and other criminals.)
  • Outsiders & Clans (Your character may have more to contend with than creatures, other travellers, and criminals, depending on which way they choose to journey between kingdoms. Please, note that there is at least one clan that your character would not remember encountering upon leaving.)
  Outsider Characters:
  • Whether your character was born on Earth, arriving in The Kingdom via portal, or they were born/ migrated into one of the clans, you will need to understand the customs and beliefs of these locations.
  • Outsiders & Clans
  • Religion
  Religious Characters, those who Study Religion, or those who live amongst the Outsider Clans:
