The peace that formerly reigned in Terra Nova has eroded, now little more than a memory. War ravages the continent. Disputes divide kingdoms; ideals divide families. The quest for power consumes absolutely and indiscriminately. None are immune to its allure.
Who will rise and who will fall? Only time—and ambition—will tell.
New gifted family of Lorendale added to the Families of Importance, the Decarlos!
At the beginning of February 2022 the site will experience a 5 year time jump! The IC year will jump from 822 to 827! This gives us about 8 months to prepare our characters for that jump. We plan to host very intentional planning sessions to help everyone get their plots and characters ready for this! As of this moment, one thing you should all start considering is making sure the threads your characters are in are furthering your character's stories.
The Zak family's estate is an example of what the pinnacle of wealth and prosperity can purchase. Many are surprised to find that it belongs to the Zak, known for their military contributions, but the family hosts guests often enough for few to pass judgement. The grand castle is set on acres of flat, lush land possessing multiple gardens fashioned in various styles. The estate is nothing short of majestic.
The giant home of the crown-serving gifted family is nestled at the east end of Loren, right by a vast forest. The manor is an expansive castle that could easily house two-hundred people in comfort. The land around the structure is plenty, as well. The estate is marked by a very tall wall surrounding it, and only one gated and guarded entrance.
The Wyndhams are a wealthy Count family that have inherited their wealth over many generations through mostly entrepreneurship. Inside the decorative but secure gate the estate is beautiful with sprawling lawns, immaculate gardens, and expensive fountains. The estate is plenty large enough to fit their entire family comfortably and they pull out all the stops for lavish parties a few times a year.
The Haas family estate is located south of Loren on thousands of acres of hilly countryside. Its dense, untamed woods are cut with a cool, clear river teeming with fish. High on a rocky hillside is the Red Citadel - an ancient castle that while modest is magnificent. In its shadow are the barracks, training grounds, and armory of the Haas Legion.
The DeCarlos all live in separate lavish estates on the same citrus tree lined road. DeCarlo lane is its own community within Lorendale. The whole of it is surrounded by a stone wall, with one way in or out which is guarded all hours of the day.
