In King's Landing, King Baelor's piety has become an uncomfortable reality for the court, not the least with the annullment of his marriage to his sister Daena and his confinement of all three sisters so that their beauty may no longer tempt men. What comes next? No one knows yet, but the kingdom is well aware that Targaryen madness comes in many flavours. Meanwhile in Dorne, the Yronwood rebellion is at an end and Princess Ariana betrothed to Lady Yronwood's son. But the court at Sunspear fears more dissent among the prince's vassals about his weak, indecisive rule and many also disapprove of the arrival of an embassy from King Baelor, wanting nothing more to do with the Targaryens.
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" (and the HBO series "Game of Thrones"). Knowledge of the books is helpful but not required for players with some MU*ing experience and the game's website is continuously being expanded with more resources.
The game takes place 140 years prior to the start of the first book, "A Game of Thrones", allowing players to explore a less defined period in the history of Westeros while still experiencing how past events referenced in the books may have played out. The roleplay is focused on the political and social interactions at the courts of King's Landing and Sunspear, with players taking up characters from various noble households. Players have a choice between CGing a character themselves or taking up a previously played, fully pre-generated role. Choose the latter option and you can often be ready to roleplay within minutes.
Blood of Dragons is focused on offering high-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:
