Welcome, Guest !
The Kingdom is set in an AU world where a kingdom, fearing magic, subjugates its magic users. The Resistance is gathering. In the midst of this conflict, pirates run rampant, 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 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, 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 scattered showers to dreary, dark grey, to days of lingering, cold and light grey clouds, to misty days with rays of sunlight and flashes of blue skies slipping between light grey clouds. The fog seems ever-present.
If you can manage it, bring an umbrella with you no matter what the skies look like when you leave your dwelling. The rains may be fewer this Spring, but the necessity may arise when you least expect it.

MY FAVOURITE AUTHORS/ BOOKS are Tanith Lee, Brom, J. R. R. Tolkien, Robert Jordan, N. K. Jemisin, Diana Wynne Jones, Angela Carter, Black Unicorn Trilogy, Tales from the Flat Earth Series, The Harry Potter Series, The Handmaid's Tale, The Night Circus, The Magicians, The Wheel of Time Series, and so many more.
MY FAVOURITE GENRE(S) Speculative Fiction, but more specifically high fantasy.
I ROLEPLAY BECAUSE it allows me to practise writing on a regular basis, give life to characters, and be social and collaborative with other awesome writers on the interwebs.
I'VE BEEN ROLEPLAYING since 2003.
MY FAVOURITE RP GENRE(S) Fandom-based (Harry Potter, Kingdom Hearts, OUAT, Stargate SG-1, Anne Rice), Fantasy (of all sorts), Steampunk, Dark Fairy-tale, Sci Fi, some Supernatural, and Superpowers.
...BECAUSE I love world-building and playing in worlds, not our own, where quests are possible, pirates run rampant, treasures are buried, heroes are born, villains are developed, and both are able to be human. Plus, real life is just so dreadfully boring or stressful most of the time so I need some magical escapism to get me through the monotony of a working week.
I GET MY CHARACTER/ WRITING INSPIRATION FROM ...I have no idea. Sometimes I see a brief description of someone, and I get an idea; sometimes I see a face and a character reveals themselves; and sometimes I just see an event in my head, and I have to write it out.
ANYTHING ELSE? I have an adorable sixteen year old gay Shih Tzu named Echo, who I rescued when he was two weeks old (much too early to separate a puppy from his mommy, but he survived and grew into a monster! LOL). If you ever ask me about him, be prepared for pictures!
HOW DID YOU FIND US? I happen to know the Author. ^_^
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO JOIN? This place is awesome! Why wouldn't I join? ^_~
VIOLENT THREADS? Anything goes, as long as it furthers the plot in some way.
ADULT LANGUAGE? Anything goes.
MIRRORING? Usually, but not always. I enjoy exploring the world around my character, their emotions, inner thoughts, and actions. It also depends on what I'm given, my available writing time, and what I find for the character for whom I'm writing.
PLOTTING OR IC-ONLY? I prefer to plot out established relationships, and play out new relationships in IC so we can build it. So... both. ^-^
TRIGGERS? Non-consensual intimacy and parental abuse tend to upset me. They are not, however, completely out of the question for plots, I'm just not interested in playing these scenarios out explicitly without really good reasons.
ANYTHING ELSE? I love, love, love plotting out pre-established relationships, and creating a living world in RP so hit me up about your character, if it's possible they might know one another, and we'll set something up - even if I don't have time for a new thread, just at the moment.
PREFERRED CHARACTER GENDER(S)? mainly male, but also female and a-gender.
FAVOURITE TYPE OF PLOT? Complex and connected to or interwoven with other plots.
