SUMMER

Angkar: Wet season. Precipitation is common during the late afternoon and evening hours. Vegetation grows significantly during the summer, but flooding is a danger due to the monsoons that ravage the country. The rainforest sees evenly distributed rainfall throughout the season.

Ashoka: Desert: Extremely hot and dry. Violent, heavy downpours following long dryspells. Jungle: Hot and humid with frequent, violent rainstorms.

Morrim: Relatively hot and dry, but with a chance of thunderstorms from time to time. The heat may cause forest fires.

Soto: Hot and humid, tree cover is dense while ground growth is restricted. Thunderstorms see the most amount of rainfall during the season, and it can be very windy. On occasion, there are flash floods that can destroy homes and farms built on flood plains.

WHAT IS ELENLOND?

Elenlond is an original free-form medieval fantasy RPG set on the continent of Soare and the Scattered Isles, which are located to the south in the Sea of Diverging Waters. The four chief nations of the western side of the world—Ashoka in northern Soare, Soto in western Soare, Morrim in eastern Soare, and Angkar, the largest of the Scattered Isles—continue to experience growth and prosperity since the fall of the Mianorite gods, although power struggles within the countries—or outside of them—continue to ensue.

  • CURRENT EVENTS

    Angkar: To honour the reinvigoration of the ancient city of Mondrágon, the majestic Queen Eulalia has permitted the opening of a Coliseum where people from around the world and all walks of life can test their combat skills against one another. Many have already done battle in search of honour, glory, prizes and money.

    Ashoka: In an otherwise peaceful times, Ashokans are beset with the relatively minor inconveniences of wandering undead and occasionally-aggressive giant rock worms. There has also been some controversy over the recent re-legalisation of human sacrifice.

    Morrim: Rumour has it that Emperor Leofric de Hollemark is mustering forces for a war. Though the threat from Soto’s forests has passed, the forces previously employed in watching the forest now linger at the border. Rumours also circulate of a small group that has been dispatched to make contact with the tribes of the Do’suul Mountains.

    Soto: The Sotoans have defeated the fey and liberated themselves from Méadaigh’s oppression! Preliminary efforts have been made at rebuilding the city of Madrid, which had been captured at the beginning of the war. However, the Sotoans are hindered from recovery famine. Méadaigh’s magic caused summer to persist in the Erth’netora Forest through the winter. Her power has been withdrawn and the plants die as if preparing for winter – even though it is now summer. The Sotoans must sustain off what food they can get, what creatures they can kill and what can be imported into the city from Morrim and Angkar.

    Sovereign Guidelines; How to become a Sovereign and continue being a Sovereign

    Sovereign Guidelines

    Sovereignty is a position of some importance on Elenlond, both in character and out of character. In character, they have at least some degree of power over their country, and so Sovereigns will be mentioned by other characters and will have the power to cause bigger movements in the world. Thus, looking at this from an out of character standpoint, we expect players of Sovereign characters to be ready to participate in plots or even start them. Sovereigns can create a lot of action on Elenlond and many eyes will be on them, so we ask a little bit extra from aspiring Sovereigns, which is as follows.

    Applying for a Sovereign character
    Whether you are turning an old character into a Sovereign or creating an entirely new character to become one, we ask that first you PM any member of the staff with a brief description of the character, which can be freeform, and the following form filled out:

    Code:
     
    [b]Political Aspirations[/b] — [What does you character want from their political position, both for themselves and for their country? How do they feel about the major political issues in their country, and what do they intend to do about them?]
    [b]Country Relations[/b] – [Remove the country that your character represents, but provide a modest excerpt as to how your character feels about each country.]
    [list][*][i]Angkar[/i] –
    [*][i]Ashoka[/i] –
    [*][i]Morrim[/i] –
    [*][i]Soto[/i] –[/list]


    If the preview of the character is satisfactory, you’ll be given the go ahead to put up your character in the Scroll of Application. The above form must be added to the character’s profile. Don’t worry if your character doesn't get approval the first time or if you haven’t fully formed your idea yet. The staff doesn't want to simply reject characters—we’ll do our best to brainstorm with you if anything is lacking, so feel free to use this as an opportunity. It is not so much a test as it is a way of enriching the character so they’ll be a successful Sovereign.

    We are looking for the following for Sovereign characters and their players:
    • Political motivations that will lead the character into action
    • Versatility and dynamism
    • Comprehension of Elenlondian history and culture
    • Uniqueness and creativity


    Once the Sovereign character’s profile is approved, the character is officially a Sovereign and the character’s account will be moved into that usergroup, giving you access to the Sovereign Discussions board.

    Posting Requirements
    Rather than the normal requirement of one post per month for other characters, Sovereigns will have to post a minimum of three (3) times per month and provide confirmation of their activity by linking at least one recent post during an Activity Check. Any Sovereign that falls short during the Activity Check will be put on probation, meaning they will be carefully monitored to make sure they’re meeting activity requirements.


    Sovereign Parties
    The other responsibility we ask of our Sovereign characters is that they be ready to host a special event called a Sovereign Party. The basic idea here is for the character to have an open thread that any number of people can join in on. It can be a ball, a drinking party, or some other event hosted by the Sovereign character. Feel free to use your imagination with this; if you want the thread to be about your Sovereign funding a parade or directing a tournament, circus, fundraiser, or some such, then go for it! The main point is that your Sovereign play an integral role in the event and that this event is open, allowing for all sorts of characters to meet each other and for other Sovereigns to begin to form relationships.

    The process for Sovereign Parties is as such:
    • Two staff-mandated Sovereign Parties will occur per year, roughly in opposite seasons (ex. summer and winter or spring and autumn).
    • Hosts of Sovereign Parties will be chosen through a rotating list of Sovereigns, which is initially generated randomly. New Sovereigns will be inserted into the list randomly. However, new Sovereigns will not be placed at the head of the list.
    • Sovereigns who were approved before May 31, 2014 have the right to abstain from hosting a party, as they became Sovereigns before this rule was implemented.
    • Similarly, if someone is expected to host a Sovereign Party but will not be able to because of personal reasons, they have the right to abstain as well and will be skipped overt.
    • Notification of the future Sovereign Party will come to the host on the Sovereign's account 2 weeks before the estimated date of Sovereign Party, but the party may be posted before these 2 weeks are up. It should not take more than 3 weeks to post the event after the notification.
    • If anyone who wants to volunteer to host a party in place of a scheduled party, they are welcome to do so, so long as they confirm it with the staff and with the person originally meant to host the party. Their character's name will then be put at the end of the rotation list.
    • If anyone wishes to volunteer to host a part off the schedule, they are encouraged to do so, and will thus be placed at the end of the rotation list. However, they must first confirm this with staff via PM or in the Sovereign Discussions board.
    • Parties may be given temporary forums upon request should people want to create multiple threads based around the party.
    • Parties may be delayed or replaced by seasonal events.
    • Sovereign Parties will be placed on the Timeline for posterity.


    The next Sovereign Party will be hosted by Orion de Lacey in Summer, 8 AR
