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 town square is at the center of Loren and is a prime location for street vendors (only those with the best appearances and wares like jewelry and chocolate) and idle noblemen and women. Public announcements are made in the town square, along with public executions.
Loren's Marketplace, with a capital m, is known to be the largest, most abundant marketplace in the entire kingdom--and arguably beyond. Anything the desires could ever fathom can be found at a stall, caravan, or storefront in the Marketplace. To those who know the way, there are hidden alleys that lead to an underground network of darker dealings.
The Bronze Lion is one of the longest established and most successful taverns in all of Lorendale. The first floor boasts a giant gathering room filled with a bar, tables, and even a little stage for performances; beyond the great room are some individual meetings rooms, some dressed for finer company than others, which are spaces that can be used for private gatherings. The second level is the inn.
Unlike the Bronze Lion, the Thirsty Wench Tavern is frequented by the likes of folk that would make the toes of nobles curl. Thirsty Wench is a relatively filthy establishment, and it offers rooms upstairs for patrons who have extra coin for a man or woman's company with their ale.
