Question - does the named heir need to be a blood relative of nobility or could they have been adopted by such?

Hi All -

I complemented that question in the application form.

The trials: Why your character think the empress noticed him? One of his quality? Something he did before? How your character feel about the trials? Does he want to be part of it, or he was forced to comply?

Welcome!

Need to be a blood relative. An obscure one is ok, like your father uncle was a Baron and you never met him and lived a commoner life.

You can still be a noble adopted by another one as well.

Those are examples!

How long ago were the wars against the elves, and is there any social status lost on those with elvish blood either full blood or half-elf?

You are talking about 7000 years old of hatred and wars against the white elves.

The biggest one was over 5000 years ago, all the races were enslaved by the ancient elvish empire. Eryka is the one who defeated them with all the other races.

More recently the last war was 75 years ago or so against the last elvish queen. The human won and this ended up in a massacre.

Some elvish nobles joined human kingdoms a long time ago, some were able to serve their king so well that they gain nobles titles such as baron and count.

Black elves (night elves) have a better reputation, since the ancient time they have ofen sided with the humans against their white cousin and other enemies.

From there, it depends, some human nobles are racist, some are not.

Cheers,

Character Application (WIP)
Rana bint Jimal Al Motallebzadeh
Character Details
Race:HumanAge:19Class:Vigilante (Warlock)Alignment:TN
Physical DescriptionPersonality
Rana is a 5'7", tan skinned woman with long, black, wavy hair. Her brown eyes sparkle with with inhuman wit and her face beholds natural beauty. Her frame is slender and always draped in some form of silk or other fineries of red color that accentuates the hips and leaves bare her neck and arms.Rana is a temperate scholar and aristocrat, formerly resigned to a fate of being some bride or concubine to the lesser families of nobility. That being the case she grew to have many forms of knowledge retained and practical skills learned to be a good wife. To earn good rapport among the noble families she spent much of her time away from the palace, socializing with the leaders of the community in Birone. She holds in high regard the future of her family so she had tried her utmost to represent them best in public.

Your family: Rana is related to the Sultana of the Matuzala Sultanate. Rana is a cousin to the current Sultana. Her father is the brother of the former Sultan and works as sorcerer-general of the families' forces. Her mother, an outsider to the family is a seer from the Yulaniz family, one of the few loyal vassals families not held in place by fear alone.

The trials: Rana, outside of the political field, has not quite been a prominent figure in her mind. Though she has connections in the high-class society Rana was merely holding her family together by whatever power her voice could carry. Perhaps the late Empress took notice of Rana's talents and decided that a silken glove, rather than a hand of her own blood, was what it took to maintain the Empire. Rana herself was hesitant to accept the invitation, but before the family could pressure her to go toward the trial to increase the families' power, she decided to take an escort into the night and trudge onward, allowing her to believe in the illusion of choice.

Background:
 


NPC relationship (minimum 3):
 

 

 

PCs relationships (5 PCs minimum):

Great, the relationship with the Sultana work just fine. It's a very large family, because the former sultan and all his predecessor had a harem. So the sultana has a lot of sister, brother, cousin, uncles...

This country is much like the Arabian nights novel.

That was indeed what I was going for, which is why Rana's brothers are mainly put into military practice, I'm pretty sure I can make the family section much longer but I am having trouble finding good pictures to st-...reuse for the characters present.

Hi Mr, Fyre -

An half-orc is certainly possible, however, please you will have to sell this as to why the Empress noticed him as a potential heir.

Cheers,

That reminds me: How would a warrior monk from Vastyrya typically dress for this occasion? Being summoned as a potential heir, that is; Not being kidnapped and thrown in a cell.

Vastyrya has a lot of monk monasteries in those mountains with all kind of martial arts style. I think a monk would wear a monk robe or kimono during the trip depending on how you see things. Traveling from Vastyrya to Selarya, is a long trip, she probably brought with her something more ceremonial for when she arrives at the capital. Monks are usually humble, but since it's the imperial court, she might have go for a monk robe in silk instead of the usual one.

Helps with my npcs, though none of them quite help with the class focus. I have decided to pull off a character image I was familiar with.

Thank you for the assist.
