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.
MEET THE MEMBERSHeir Apparent would be nothing but an abandoned forum if not for the members who fill our community and collaborate to write our story.

Hello friends! I go by Eloell, I was born in '92, I live on the east coast of America, I'm married and have a toddler son and 3 foster kids, I'm a Bible-believing Christian, and I used to be an English teacher. While my primary job is that of a stay at home mother, I'm also a voice actor. I've been roleplaying since I was 14, and I think I'll roleplay until I'm 41 and beyond. My favorite part of roleplaying is the world building and storytelling aspects. Aside from this hobby, I like to sing, play music, play sports, and act. My primary goal in roleplaying is to tell interesting stories in magical worlds with all the beautiful unpredictability that comes from writing collaboratively with others.
I am Heir Apparent's admin, as I birthed the site from my creative loins. Since its beginning, however, the site as a whole has been heavily influenced by Lyla . I'm so grateful I get to do this with her! As for specifics, I'm primarily responsible for the generation of site lore. There is no A to a Q or Fact of a Day that doesn't go through my strainer. I am responsible for the organization and maintenance of the site as a whole, as well as the progression of the plot arc and the health of the member base. While Lyla does a TON to help me in every way, at the end of the day, my role as admin on the site means I make the final call on things and assume ultimate responsibility for the site.
Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff MBTI: ENFJ Enneagram: 8w9 "The Diplomat" Divergent Faction: Candor "The Honest" DISC: Di "The Driver"
Activity Level: Typically high, with exceptions; I tend to post every day or every other day Violence/Gore: I am always willing to engage my characters in violent situations as the story needs! Romance: The spice of life? All for it, though I'll never commit OOC to anything because I love to let the characters do the deciding IC Combat: YES--bring it!
Howdy y'all! I'm Lyla! I'm a 30-something proud wife of a surgeon with two kiddos. I love God, too many TV shows to name them all (though I typically lean towards comedies like The Office and Schitt's Creek as well as the big hits like GOT, The Mandalorian, Bridgerton, etc), sushi, Adam Driver, Harry Potter, Star Wars... I should stop before this gets too long. I'm mostly a SAHM but also do photography part time photographing families and newborns. I have lived all over the US but currently live in the CST. I've been roleplaying for at least 15+ years and it's just one of the hobbies that keeps sucking me in and won't let go. Oh, and I am in the middle of writing my first novel.
I am responsible for housekeeping and secretarial work for Eloell. I'm the one who updates all the threads that track characters (census', Families of Importance, etc. If you want to reserve a face claim I'm your girl. I also edit all the coding and images for the skin. I also follow El around like a little puppy dog and happily do anything she ask to do. Lore questions and member issues get gently redirected to Eloell. All hail the Goddess Eloell! She's the best and I'm truly lucky to be part of her team!
Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw MBTI: ISFP Enneagram: 9w1 Divergent Faction: Amity DISC: Si - The Counselor
Activity Level: Pretty high. I'm around discord every day and posts tend to fall closer to every other day for the most part, though I might not hit up all my replies in one day. You can expect at least 1-2 replies from me in any given thread within a week.
Violence/Gore: I won't shy away from it, especially as part of a story, though I don't necessarily go looking for it.
Romance: ALLLLL the relationship plots! I love me a good romance plot. I don't like to make any commitments to a specific plot line and much prefer to see how things play out naturally IC. I won't push drama that doesn't feel natural but I have no issues causing some sort of tension into relationships to keep things spicy and prevent them from getting boring once a couple ends up together.
Combat: -cries- Oh gosh, please no. lol jk...mostly. I do combat threads regularly to help with leveling but it's rare I actually enjoy them. Magic combat is slightly better, but I do not enjoy writing out the specifics of a sword fight for example. Just not my strong suit or cup of tea. lol
well for the most part yall know me as M'Baku but my real name is Jesse, I'm 31 and was born August 1989 in a small hospital in a place called Galax Virginia (home of bluegrass!). I got into roleplaying first in yahoo chatrooms efedding (wrestling where we used t1 and t2 style of combat) and some Final Fantasy when I was 13/14. I got into forum rp about the same time i got into table top games (dnd/pathfinder/warhammer), mostly stuck to efedding/harry potter/and supernatural. Now I'm usually here, I've tried to branch out but honestly nothing really holds my interest like what I've developed here IC or OOC. I'm into Heathenry/Asatru or modern day paganism. Imma single dad to a 7 year old boy and he'smy best friend. I support the 420 movement and Wine Moms. I love all music can't find anything I dont like, try it? Big into movies, reading, comics, anime, manga, and tv shows (top 3 shows: 1. Breaking Bad, 2. Sons of Anarchy, 3. Stranger Things).
Hogwarts House: Slytherin MBTI: The Guardian - ISFJ Enneagram: The Caregiver - 2 Divergent Faction: Amity DISC: The Harmonizer - IS
Activity Level: I would say moderate? I try and I've got better at consistency. Violence/Gore: I'm all for it! You won't find anything that offends me or sets off a trigger! The bloodier the better they say. Romance: I'm here for it! I love working in little romances/ships Combat:
I use to be kinda on the dance about it until I participated in a few massive sized combat situations like the siege of Cambria and my part as Stone! Since then I've been pretty into the combat zone situations ya know? CHARACTERS
List your characters and notate whether they are lead, support, or minor. Please also notate which is your "main", if you have one.
Oof. I was always really bad at these ‘get to know me’ things. LOL. But I’ll give it a shot. Hello! I am Finnley, or Finn. I got into RP writing back when I was like 12 years old and started off on Harry Potter and, brace yourselves, Naruto sites. Then grew into Twilight. I took a long hiatus and just came back last year to writing thanks to our lovely shut downs. Haha. I am a mom, I am tattooed, and have (currently) a mauve color hair. I work with technology on the regular (outside of mom duties). I am around quite a bit on Discord even if I am not actively writing on the site.
And outside of that? Not much to report! I am pretty basic in many ways, except for the days I get a bit chaotic which you can likely catch in the general chat of discord or the plot channels. Love listening to podcasts on murders and mysteries, singing really loud in my car, tacos & sushi are the best meals to me, and being ridiculously loud like all of the time IRL.
Hogwarts House: I would have been one of the kids like Harry where the Sorting Hat was stuck between Slytherin and Gryffindor. And I would have convinced it that I look better in green and silver. MBTI: The Entertainer - ESFP Enneagram: Type 2w3 - The Hostess Divergent Faction: Abnegation DISC:The Encourager - Is
Activity Level: I am pretty active, but like everyone have my times where real life takes over and I can’t be around all the time. I try and post once a day with at least one character. And I focus on anything that has a priority for site wide stuff as well. Violence/Gore: BRING IT ON Romance: BRING IT ON Combat:BRING. IT. ON.
Basically, I am down for just about everything. I don’t shy away from much and if I am not comfortable I will let you know. Or at least try and point someone back into my comfort zone. Though I haven’t found much that pushes me out of it when it comes to IC writing.
To be fair, these change often and has more to do with plots and what’s happening around them. But overall, this is where I list them. And as you can tell... clearly I love Nevermere.
Just kidding. I've been on this forum for quite a few years now and have enjoyed every moment of it. I'm on a different timezone to most of the staff and members so look out for that!
Hogwarts House: Gryffindor MBTI: INTJ Enneagram: The Thinker - 5 Divergent Faction: Abnegation DISC: The Editor - Cs
Activity Level: I think I'm fairly active. I usually manage to catch up with most of my threads in a day and I'm always willing to go for more. Violence/Gore: Yeah. Sure... Why not? Romance: *Clears throat and points towards Tybalt and Felicity. Combat: Bring it on!
Hey party people! I go by Rigby, ‘Rigs’, whatever floats your boat. I’m a quaint and quirky Midwesterner who now lives in the District on the east coast. At my day job, I work as a policy wonk and political ghostwriter. I operate mostly in politically-progressive faith spaces, and can most aptly be described as a Christian socialist. I’m always happy to talk about politics, but I also discovered during quarantine that politics had pretty much taken over my life. In an effort to expand my writing horizons and get a hobby that doesn’t involve wrecking the establishment, I joined my first RP site a couple of months ago. Now I’m hooked! I got pulled into Heir Apparent by the lovely Eloell and I couldn’t be happier to be here. It’s been an awesome way to get back into creative writing again after a long hiatus.
My other great quarantine adventure has been adopting a rescue dog who I love more than anything. She is a German Shepherd/Pitbull mix and the most loving, resilient dog you’ve ever met. We’re a year down our long road together and she has come so far. I’m often writing with her beautiful, watermelon-sized head laying on my arm.
Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw MBTI: INTJ - The Architect/Idealist Enneagram: The Protector - 8 DISC: The Initiator - DI
Activity Level: Honestly, it depends if Congress is in or out of session. In times where things are slow, I’ll post once a day or at least once every other day. Sometimes a couple days will go by if things get really busy, but I’ll always let folks know if/when that is happening! Communication is key. Violence/Gore: Hit me. No really, do it. Romance: Kiss me. Who are we kidding - romance is the best part. I mean, that’s where the drama is, right? Combat: I’m still a newbie at this, so I’m interested to see how the mechanics of combat play out. All I can ask is be patient with me while I learn!
I do not know what you want to know about me. My name is Zanny, 25 years old and I am from England, UK. I am dyslexic bt i love writing. I do suffer from mental health so there will days where I might have a little posts but i will try and post something.
MAGANCE ABOUT ME Dear friends, I'm a rather friendly person, if I do say so myself (And I do). I'm approachable, so approach; with anything! Questions, compliments, other fan mail, criticism, terrible jokes, a mere desire for entirely random conversation - all of this and more is welcome!
I'm a fanatic on the topics of writing and music alike. I enjoy a vast variety of music genres; if it's good, it's good. Plain and simple. I began role playing when I was about 7 or 8 years old. If I'm being honest, I don't remember exactly, but if we're staying on the subject of honesty, I don't remember a lot of things. What was I doing again?
What do you call a dead fly? A flew
Activity Level: Not Dead Violence/Gore: I generally prefer to keep gore to a minimum, but I'm certainly not afraid of violence, or describing such with detail Romance: Yes Combat: Come at me and find out
Hi, I am Kimber and I am an Alcoholic.... oh wait... wrong meeting. I am a 40 year old Eclectic Wiccan, Pansexual Polyamorous Scorpio. I have Rp'd since the days of Lore, starting in the chatrooms of Yahoo. I am a sports mom, all 4 kids play Football (including my daughter), a PVP ARK RolePlay cluster admin/owner in my spare time (what's that), I work full time making payments to FosterCare placements and work a cattle farm on occasion. I am familiar with homesteading, though currently am not running one. I am pretty open and VERY difficult to offend so feel free to ask me anything.
Hey everyone! I'm Siren and I've been around on various forms of RP for a really long time. Born in '95, I first started forum RP wayy back when I was a kid in high school, mostly on fantasy creature/animal based sites. In college I started gaming and have now also sunk many, many hours into voice-based RP on games such as GTA and DayZ.
IRL I'm just a nerd who really likes video games, music, and books. I'm also one of those peasants that considers Halloween their favorite holiday and I drink wayyy too many Pumpkin Spice Lattes for it to be legal. Also, anything dark and spooky: totally my jam. Wanna watch a horror movie or play a horror game? I'm down.
I'm a housewife and stay at home cat mom at the moment. I spend my days streaming on Twitch, as corporate America sucked all of the life out of me and I needed a break from the grind of capitalism. Some of my favorite games include Dishonored, Last of Us 2, and Destiny (to keep the list short). My all time favorite book series is The Mortal Instruments and you can always find me bopping along to some really good post-hardcore music while I dream of ways to dismantle the patriarchy.

Activity Level: I aim to answer posts at least once a day, although will probably be more like a few times a week. Violence/Gore: Give me all those juicy, gorey details. Romance: I'm always up for a good, naturally developed romance. Combat: Definitely down for combat, although I don't have much experience in it.
