The Queen's Games -> Available Canon List [wip]

Welcome to The Queen's Games, a future/AU Tortallan based forum headed by a Matriarchal Monarchy in the Queendom of Kalim. Gaining independence little more than a century ago, the Queen has been pushing for contact with Tortall and other lands to the east in the past decade. With the victor of the Games to win the Crown Princess's hand decided, the Darshani Empire has set its eyes on conquering Kalim and regaining power through force.

That popping sound you hear is the cbox! It's at the bottom of the page. Why not pop in and say hi?



Coming down from its January cold spike, the weather creeps up unusually warm for February, turning what would normally be frozen ground and light snows into a slushy wet mix throughout the country. This creates poor travel conditions throughout the country: avalanches in the north and roads so muddy they threaten single mounts and caravans alike.

AVAILABLE CANONS


Below is a list of the available canons for our site, divided into their respective member groups. Within the collapsible box is a brief description of the character, major characters relevant to them (spouses, close family members, etc.), and an optional set of links to recommended reading. Most characters' names and PBs are negotiable. If a piece of information seems to be missing, it may be up to the player's interpretation. If you are uncertain about any of this, you can contact a member of the staff through your choice of methods here. For a list of canons currently in play, look here!

Canons can be reserved! Without an application, each canon can be held only once per person for a maximum of seven days. A posted application counts as a reserve until it goes inactive.

ROYALTY


user posted image user posted image user posted image

NELIS OF RICHILDE
25 (b. 578) - Eldest Prince of Kalim - Family Man

Collapse (Show/Hide)
  
Always the scholarly sort, Nelis has had ambitions of an appointment to his mother's council from a young age. His single-minded determination and dedication to his studies has caused him to be somewhat distant, unapproachable, and even impatient to his siblings. His marriage to Yuriko has gone a long way in tempering this behavior. In trying to make her more comfortable, he has reined in his own reactions to more patient, controlled responses, and in doing so found peace and fulfillment in his role as a husband and father.

His ambitions have far from evaporated, but as he has grown into himself, he has ceased chomping at the bit and settled in to play the long game.

Important Connections:
Wife - Yuriko of Richilde
Daughter ____ (3)

Magic: Moderate to none. Type and specialization up to player.

Recommended reading maybe:
* Politics/Matriarchy/Government
* Current Events
* The Yamani Isles
* Education/the Convent???

Suggested PBs: Rodrigo Guirao Diaz, Diego Boneta, Rodrigo Santoro

YURIKO OF RICHILDE
27 - Yamani Princess - Mage

Collapse (Show/Hide)
  
Raised to be a proper Yamani lady, Yuriko is a difficult woman to read. The initial shock of Kalim's openness has passed somewhat, and while directly expressing her emotions and wants is still difficult for her, she has come to appreciate the empathy and intimacy of her family, particularly her sisters-in-law. In them she has found a more accepting and encouraging support than she had previously known. Kalim has also afforded her a greater opportunity to pursue her magic to the fullest extent.

Magic: Yes. Type, strength, and specialization up to the player.

Important Connections:
Husband: Nelis of Richilde
Daughter: _____ (3)

Recommended Reading:
* Magic
* The Yamani Isles

Suggested PBs: Koyuki Kato, Keiko Kitagawa, Yui Aragaki

LERANT OF RICHILDE
23 (b. 580) - Prince of Kalim - The Pretty Brother

Collapse (Show/Hide)
  
Lerant is perhaps a more obnoxious variety of big brother. Prone to harassing and teasing his younger siblings, he has been accused of having an obsessive need to have someone paying attention to him. He has been quick to brush off these assumptions.

His path in life is largely up to the player: Mage? Knight? Something else entirely? What's certain is that Lerant makes friends wherever he goes, and isn't shy about using royal wealth and privilege to show his friends a good time.

He married Batari three years ago, and while the alliance is assured, their relationship has been less clear. At present they have achieved something of a friendship by way of intense, (mostly) friendly rivalry. Batari infuriatingly makes a contest out of anything, and he's not going to stand by and let her win!

Important Connections:
Wife - Batari of Richilde

Magic: Moderate to none. Type and specialization up to player.

Recommended reading maybe
* The Academy, Magic, AND/OR Knighthood

Suggested PBs: Tom James (model), Alex Teixeira, Raul Merida

BATARI OF RICHILDE
23 - Princess of the Copper Isles - Troublemaker

Collapse (Show/Hide)
  
Batari was raised to be heiress to all of the Copper Isles. Her aunt, the queen, had no children of her own, and her own mother had abdicated her claim to it when Batari was still a child. Her assumption that she would be the next queen was turned on its head in 599 when her aunt finally had a child late in life. Her fiery personality and mulish stubbornness had often been excused if she was to be queen, but after a scandal in 600 H.E., her aunt was quick to marry her off and send her away from home.

If she holds it against anyone, it isn't the Kalimi. She went from one Matriarchy to another, and this one less experienced in dealing with her. Her firecracker personality has burned even brighter the last few years as she has rained righteous and richly-deserved antagonism on her husband. It's just too tempting! The guy can't resist a challenge! It's ridiculous the lengths he will go to to try to outdo her, and she has yet to find the limits of it.

How Batari feels about her replacement as heiress (bitter, relieved, etc.), whether she was trained as a warrior queen or not, and the nature of the 600 scandal are up to the player.

Important Connections:
Husband - Lerant of Richilde

Magic: Moderate to none. Type and specialization up to the player.

Recommended reading maybe
* The Copper Isles
* Magic (if applicable)

Suggested PBs: Maria Agnes Bong, Michelle Agnes Samantha, Manohara Pinot

KESSLER OF RICHILDE
20 (b. 583) - Prince of Kalim - Knight of the Realm - Hothead

Collapse (Show/Hide)
  
Kessler has never been good at sitting still. As such, knighthood seemed like a natural course of action for him, but with three years on his shield now, he wishes someone would just let him do something! He has always been close with Eleni, but his proximity to her has often caused him to be overshadowed, fostering in him a desperate need to prove himself and be useful as something more than a marriage alliance.

In his time on border tour, he became more familiar with the Eversworn and admires them greatly. Their fervor and (some would say brash) determination to act speaks to his desire for action, and he longs to be sent to their aid. For the good of the people! For the glory of the fight! Just... not for a wedding, please!

Known Connections:
Sister - Eleni

Magic: Minor or none. Type and specialization up to player.

Recommended reading maybe

* Knighthood
* Current Events
* The Eversworn

Suggested PBs: Tyler Posey, Brennan Mejia, Michael Trevino

EVERSWORN

ALASTOR OF HOUSE SUNSPEAR

* TAKE BACK THE THING
* Has been in negotiations with the Queen/Kalimi nobility for a few years trying to gain their support

* Has perhaps lost sight of other things in his growing impatience to get Khiros back.

Important Connections:
Daughter - Elaina

Recommended reading maybe
