Blood of Dragons MUSH: Medieval Fantasy Roleplay
Adress: bod.westeros.org: 3000
Blood of Dragons is set in the low-magic, medieval-inspired fantasy world of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. Knowledge of the books is not required for players with some MU*ing experience, though it is definitely helpful.
The game takes place 140 years prior to the start of the first book, A Game of Thrones, and the roleplay is focused on the political and social interactions at the royal court in King's Landing and at the court in Sunspear in Dorne, with players taking up characters from various noble households. Players have a choice between CGing a character themselves or taking up previously played, fully pre-generated role. Choose the latter option and you can often be ready to roleplay within minutes.
King Baelor, the pious successor of warlike King Daeron, has personally lead the 49 hostages taken during the initial Conquest of Dorne back to Sunspear to make peace with Prince Marence. This heralds a new era for both King's Landing and Sunspear, and there is much uncertainty in both courts.
In King's Landing, many wonder what King Baelor's court will be like and what sort of men (and women) will find his favour. Trying to anticipate how to best approach gaining power under this particular ruler is no easy task. In Sunspear, meanwhile, Prince Marence has hardly emerged from the war as a ruler who has the confidence of his subjects. Around him, factions are forming, each hoping to wield influence over what they see as a too cautious, too indecisive prince.
We feel that we're offering good-quality roleplay in a rich, immersive setting with a strong sense of history and continuity and we strive to be approachable and helpful. If you find yourself interested in the game, the following links provide some good starting points:
