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.

We wanted to give a huge shoutout to Bugstomper! We have always promoted the idea of going with the flow of a plot, not taking things personally OOC, and moving forward as we adapt to new IC happenings. When her character, Rhedara, was removed from the military and then lost an important romance plot, Bugstomper took it all in graceful strides and showed us how things are meant to unfold in such circumstances. Thank you Bugstomper for your example and general awesomeness!

Hello friends! I go by Eloell, I was born in '92, I live on the east coast of America, I'm married with 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, I've had a ton of help from Lyla , and then more recently here Rigby has become an invaluable part of the team . I'm so grateful I get to do this with them! 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"
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!
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 due ng the pandemic. Haha. 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.

Hello there! I'm generally new here but absolutely loving it! I'm in my mid-20s in EST and a nurse which is a super fun time right now! Anyways I have been rping for a long time (warriors cats back in middle school was a vibe) and absolutely love it, and have no plans to stop! Big sports ball fan, love reading the latest book rec, biking, and binging the latest netflix/hulu/etc series. I'm ready to build and burn some bridges! Let's gooooo!
Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff MBTI: INFJ Enneagram: Type 9 - The Peacemaker Divergent Faction: Abnegation DISC: Si "The Counselor"
Activity Level: trying to post everyday but again sometimes work can get in the way (especially when i pull doubles) but always popping into discord a couple times a day!

Romance: anything and everything! i'm here for it an any way shape and form, give it all to me Combat: absolutely pls, yep yep yep
Greetings, fellow adventurers. My name is [ redacted ], I mean, uh, Rigby. I’m a political organizer and opinion writer in my late 20s living in Washington, D.C. Like many people, once quarantine hit I found myself in need of an escape from reality. So, I decided to try out this whole role-playing thing, and was lucky enough to find Heir Apparent in the process! (with a little help from El, of course). For me, what makes role-playing on Heir Apparent special is the epic surprises, twists, and turns that keep me (and my characters) on our toes.
As site librarian, I’m here to help Eloell manage the lore and game aspects of the site. I manage our various libraries and trackers and help Eloell update the lore as needed. I also try to be a helpful set of eyes on threads to ensure the lore and elements of realism are being honored in the story. If you have any questions or concerns or just want to chat, my DMs are always open!
Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw MBTI: INTJ Enneagram: 8 - "The Protector" DISC: Di "The Driver"
Activity Level: You’ll find me online most evenings writing as my delightful little pup Seamus rests his little head on my lap. I'm always accessible by Discord unless I post otherwise in the absence channel!
Violence/Gore: Hit me. No really, do it. I'm here to get as dark as you want to get. I'm not particularly squeamish, so throw me whatever you've got!
Romance: Kiss me. Romance is the spice of life, no? I'm a fan of fraught love affairs and complicated relationships. Happy endings are for squares; let's get messy.
Combat: I love combat, though sometimes struggle with the mechanics (spatial reasoning is not one of my special skills). I'm big into the "ask questions if something doesn't make sense" and "summarize when possible" methods of sorting things out!
I've never been able to come up with a cool nickname to go by on RP sites, so I'm just Heather I'm 31 as of posting this, and I technically started RPing when I was 10 in Yahoo Chatrooms...ouch. I have a degree in computer programming and I currently work from home in Information & Data Management, which is just a fancy term for paperwork sorting and filing. I love animals and true crime, and I'm in the (very slow) process of learning leather-working.
Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff! MBTI: The Advisor - INFJ Enneagram: The Creative - 4 Divergent Faction: Amity DISC: The Supporter - S
Activity Level: I'm very active. I work from home, so I can usually reply daily or every other day, though I am slower on the weekends. Violence/Gore: Don't mind it. Romance: I enjoy slow-burns and lots of drama! Bring on the awkward, tense situations. Combat: Not my strength, but that's what youtube is for, so let's do it.
Hello there. I am a scientist of the biology variety, I have a cat and two dogs, and I have it on good authority that I am a massive nerd. I’ve been RPing on forums for about 15 years now and have, as of the past few years, also branched off into D&D and hopefully one day, Call of Cthulhu. I am familiar with a bunch of the big movie/book/tv fandoms – Harry Potter, MCU, Star Wars, GoT, Breaking Bad, Hunger Games etc – but if you know some of the more niche series like Hannibal or The Magnus Archives, I will be your friend forever. I occasionally do the video game thing as well, and I am 100% that person who will buy new books from a bookstore knowing full well that I’m in the middle of reading 5 other books and that my to-read pile is about a mile high.
Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw MBTI: INTJ Enneagram: The Investigator - 5 Divergent Faction: Erudite DISC: The Editor - Cs
Activity Level: Largely dependent on how wiped I am from work, but I aim to respond at least a few times a week, preferably more. I’m always lurking on discord though Violence/Gore: Fine with everything Romance: Generally not on my radar, but more out of me not thinking of it rather than my actively avoiding it. I tend to not plot it as much as just let it happen if the characters click, and I prefer the slow burns. I’m all for the angst where you either crash and burn or come out the other side stronger for it Combat: Don’t have a lot of experience with it, but always down to learn new things
Hi! I'm Aenwyn. I think I'm currently the youngest member on the site (21 as I'm writing this)! I've been writing on RP sites since I was 14, but this is the first RP I've joined that is 100% in English (I'm from Belgium, so I've mostly been on Dutch sites). I like to draw and I sell some of my art from time to time. While I love to make art myself, I'm studying art history/sciences, which is only history and theory. Apart from that I love watching movies (if I can stay focussed), reading (again, if I can stay focussed lol), watching shows and spending time with friends. Together with drawing, RP has been the hobby that I've been doing the longest.
Hogwarts House: Gryffindor MBTI: The Empath - INFP Enneagram: The Loyalist - 6 Divergent Faction: Amity DISC: The Initiator - DI
Activity Level: I post whenever I can. I have quite some free time (knock on wood) so I try to get a couple of replies in every day Violence/Gore: Don't have a problem with it Romance: I love drama and chaotic love, relationships with interesting turns, slow-burns too Combat: Really not that good at writing combat threads, especially not since I have to translate all the parts of weapons lol
I picked my username after watching my husband play too many hours of Breath of the Wild because I really connect with those chubby, big-eyed friendly boi types who fall apart with a single slash. I used to roleplay years ago but then got lazy and unmotivated and started watching Netflix more often instead. I feel like a couch potato who is trying to get back into running, so thanks in advance for the patience! I am also pretty bad with technology (I'm over 200 years old in dog years), so also getting the hang of Discord and HTML and such, so please assume I'm being ignorant, not mean if I do something dumb. Excited to build on the world y'all have created with fantastic tales! I'm in the Central time zone, I work full-time and can only post in the evenings (and not every evening). I am trying to get back into good writing habits and to also work on writing novels that I will never attempt to have published. I have two cats and not enough blankets for winter.
Hogwarts House: Slytherin (but, like, only because I think I'm clever)
Activity Level: Medium? 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. Violence/Gore: Bring it on! 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

Hello! I'm Bugstomper, some in the discord chat have dubbed me as "Scary Berry" which would be an awesome username.
As far as hobbies go, I like to do artsy things like draw/paint. I also dance (swing dancing specifically. I know seven different styles) and I used to teach it (not professionally).
Hogwarts House: Slytherin (according to my friends), but Ravenclaw probably MBTI: ISTJ Enneagram: The Protector - 8 Divergent Faction: Candor
Activity Level: I work from home, so I can usually at least check out the chat throughout the day depending on how busy things are. As far as posting, I'll usually do those in the evenings/nights (EST) unless I can get one out during lunch. Violence/Gore: I'm ok with it. Not too big a fan of super graphic, but it won't necessarily keep me away Romance: Love romance! I really like slow burn (although sometimes I get so excited on behalf of my characters that I need to remind myself to slow down) or enemies to lovers. I'm ok with insta-attraction because that happens IRL. Very rarely will I like the insta-love though (there has to be a compelling reason for it that makes sense and is NOT a "fated mates" thing. I'm tired of that haha) Combat: I'm not the best at writing it, but I won't turn it down
