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.
Aside from the bustling metropolis that is Loren, Lorendale is made up of various small farming towns that are governed by landowners. There are fifteen larger towns, and more smaller ones. Some of those larger ones are: Ladale, Rainesbury, and Airedale.
Lake Loren is Lorendale's largest body of water by far. It is the prime location for boating and swimming, and some folks from smaller villages reap of the fish the lake has to offer. It is told to children that a great monster resides at the lake's heart, but this is supposedly a wive's tale to keep them from swimming alone.
Most of Lorendale's land outside of Loren is countryside. One can travel for miles without seeing houses or people and only green grass, but there are also plenty of cottages nestled away throughout the land. Most belongs to the crown but some is owned by the wealthiest dukes, marquis, and counts.
The western edges of the capital of Loren break into thick forestry. At one point the trees stretched into the city itself, but they have since been cut and burned back. There are plenty of haunting legends concerning the forest that are told to keep kids away, and it is rumored that the only kind of people who spend time in it are those up to no good.
