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 HBO's 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. Blood of Dragons is the only MUSH operated with the approval of George R.R. Martin and its owners have recently published a book together with him, The World of Ice and Fire.
The game takes place 140 years prior to the start of the first book, A Game of Thrones. King Baelor I Targaryen, who will be known to history as Baelor the Blessed, sits the Iron Throne, his rule growing ever more erratic as time passes. Dorne, once again an independent realm, is also experiencing internal problems as Prince Marence Nymeros Martell has been rendered incapable of ruling following an attempt to poison him. There is talk of a Regent being needed, but his two brothers are not in agreement on who it should be.
This choice of time period allows players to explore a less defined period in the history of Westeros while still experiencing how past events referenced in the books (in some cases in yet-to-be-published 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:
