  1. An Open Letter to Solis

    The Solis-Kingstone Ultimatum After the events of the Battle of Fort Acies, Kingstone and her vassals realized that Solis could not win, and as a result came together to write an ultimatum much like the one the Imperator sent to King Icarus. Inclosed are our terms and the options to which Solis must respond. Failing to do so will result in an immediate Kingstone victory and shameful end to the reign of the Solisian Empire. The Kingdom of Kingstone will give the Empire until the 2nd Day of January 2018. And then it must choose which road it will follow. Our demands: I. Lopp steps down as Consules. He is a war criminal and peace between Solis and Kingstone is impossible as he holds power in the Empire. II. Kingstone shall never again bend to impromptu and non-consensual rules. Failing to understand this will mean an immediate surrender of the pertaining battle. (( For each of the official battles we have had these recent couples of Saturdays, we have, as equals, decided on rules far beforehand and as Kingstonians we have obeyed these rules to an absolute T. The battle of Fort Acies, however, changed all this. Twenty minutes before the battle, I was approached with new, disgustingly unfair rules including: Kingstone could only use half their members, only use Efficiency 1 picks (which we didn't own), and to abandon our spawn build (that exact same spawn in which Imperator Yogi asked us to build). From now on, if you declare war against Kingstone you will be facing the full might of Kingstone. If you want an edge over our numbers and skills, build immersive and defensive builds the same way the old medieval kings did. Causeways, arrowslits, gatehouses, drawbridges. Not 360 waterfalls around a hill that looks indiscernible from grief. )) Your options: I. Solis continues the fight, using the days until the 2nd of January to train their warriors and recruit new men. You must respect our second demand. (( Truth be told I like the concept of Solis. I truly believe that adversity is the flame that tempers the blade. Solis was an enemy, a rival, someone I could use to inspire myself to grow and to work. If Solis is willing to pick up the pieces and become an enemy who shows respect and decency, then I will gladly continue our game. I still regret not being able to defend Kingstone's proud walls. I still regret not being able to build siege towers and battering rams, and not being able to have a glorious victory at the seat of your proud capital. )) II. Solis has one final stand. They defend their capital against Kingstone, if they win, and respect BOTH of our demands then we will give them a very very attractive peace treaty. (( This option will give a heroic end to the great Empire of Solis. After 350 years of peace, the war-hardened Kingstonian forces with their magic and experience were too much for the Empire of Solis, but it will go down in history as a great nation which expanded across multiple continents and reigned with grace as one of the great ancient super-powers of Lutum. )) III. Solis admits defeat and decides to work with Kingstone towards a fair and final peace treaty. You must respect our first demand. (( This option will allow Solis to live in peace with Kingstone, and perhaps prepare them for an alliance against the great dark forces that are to come. If you are willing to take this course, I will gladly sit down with you and as equals, we will decide the price of this war, and your cooperation will be rewarded. I believe that Solis will have a hard time becoming as attractive a faction as Kingstone. Solis has great builders and skilled lore-writers, but Kingstone has been a concept for six years, and her vassals are die-hard loyal as well as determined to start and finish marvelous builds. They also are skilled in combat and are very disciplined, anchored by King Icarus's voice and experience. Even with extensive recruitment efforts, and the closing of Kingstone's own applications, it may not be enough to achieve the kind of numbers required to have a 50/50 win rate against Kingstone. )) Signed: King Icarus Forde of Kingstone Agunua, Lord of Nymphea -And his councilman, Carson of Nymphea. Arlin, Lord of Mirkwood Javious, Lord of Avalon Pandeoo, Spymaster of Kingstone Alfrety, Headmaster of the Wizards’ Tower Vluxed, Governor of Mista Mathora Ragnorock, Chieftain of Ravenscar Nicku Crestshade, Keeper of THE PIT
  2. Battle of Fort Acies: A Post Battle Report

    Without the rest of their legions, the rallied Solsians were scattered easily. Their fort was searched and the supplies commandeered as King Icarus sat grimly atop the tallest battlement waiting for the crows to arrive. Wiping the red stains off of Brisingr's blade, he swallowed down the bile that was coming back up to haunt him. He could feel the curse stealing away more and more of his sanity and identity but steeled himself with the knowledge that with the Solisan offensive destroyed, Kingstone would be able to rest easy during the holidays. Glancing down, he noticed the wooden eagles that served as mantlets still stood proud, even with the three dozen arrows sticking out of them. Icarus would be proud as well, for his men, and now that the battle was over the worse was behind them. What really worried him was the new year, and the events it would bring. It was a 3:0 victory, with Kingstone taking all three points without needing their extra round. (( I appreciate all the Kingstonians who showed up to the battle, it was regretful that some of you had to stay back and couldn't earn the glory you deserved on the battlefield. I hope in future events, there will be no need to hold back and that there will be more communication between Solis and Kingstone regarding the rules being changed the last second, also looking forward to the possibility of a new faction rising up to face the might of Kingstone and it's dedicated defenders. ))
  3. Character Profile: Nicku Crestshade

    -Nicku Crestshade- Nicku Crestshade is Nicku's main character and loyal vassal of King Icarus in the Season 4 Everneth roleplay universe, she is one of many from a custom race called the shades who control THE PIT and the Dawn Isles. Before the events of Kingstone, Nicku lived with her family in the forests North of the Hartguard ruins. They used their druid-esque powers to tame beasts as pets and servants. The shades, as they are called in the common tongue, were peaceful. Content to hum and sing and dance together under their great oaks. Nicku was a natural adventurer and hunter for her family despite her young age. Wielding her great stone bludgeon she could defeat even the fiercest of beasts. But this would be the greatest of hunts. The northern drake troll: This one of a kind beast was a flying, fire-breathing dragon, with stone skin, massive jaws and a face uglier than death itself. It was eight times her height and eight times her weight, and big enough to swallow her whole if she wasn't careful. But armed with her mighty hammer she would win. The huntress became the hunted as the ambush turned, the troll had a dozen lesser drakes in her pack and for each one crushed by the hammer, it seemed to grow heavier and heavier. The drake blood and her own were thick on the ground and she lost balanced mid-swing, sending the hammer flying off a cliff-side. With her surrounded, the drakes licked their lips at the prospect of the kill. The pack stood aside as the alpha summoned the mucus to end her, and as the forest was illuminated with dragon fire, she braced for the end. The sound of the intense flames was interrupted by the sound of metal thudding against dirt. Opening one eye, she made out the silhouette of a man. The drake's breath was being absorbed by the sword in his right hand, as his left sent a chain as red as his sword down the mountain. It seemed to have a mind of its own as it wrapped around the grip of her hammer and sent it flying back upwards. "Fight, fight and survive today!" bellowed the fire-bearer, as her hammer smacked back into her hands.Together they slammed against the army of reptiles and one by one sent their corpses off the cliff. Alone with the pack's leader, Nicku pushed the man back towards the brush. This was the fight she came for. He couldn't understand a word of her language, but smiled and nodded, sheathing his cooling sword. She went back the village a hero, with the skull of a drake in her arms. The man's name was Icarus and over the next six years they got along, she taught him the language of the shades as he taught her the language of men. He said he was building a great stone city where his family could be safe. He also intrusted Nicku with his left gauntlet, which could serve as a grappling hook against fleeing enemies, or a way to get her bludgeon back as she drops it. And as his city grew so did she. The bludgeon didn't tire her anymore and soon she could tame the very same beasts that threatened her village. It was paradise. That was, until the arrival of a malicious nexus spawned under her home. The portal shattered the moment it was activated and split the earth open into a massive crater, vaporizing their old home. Lovecraftian horrors and beasts of untold strength clambered out of the pit. The shades shoud've been annihilated but we were saved by Nicku's super-natural grip on creatures. She tamed them and made them docile, but the hellish corruption continued to spread out of the portal. The shades sent a bird to the Kingstonian Construction Site and Ike's Kingsglaive and their golden apple appeared in time to stop the flow of death before it reached the shades and their more benevolent beasts. Nicku made a home there to make sure the beasts never rampaged and to be closer to Kingstone, since she was soon made a member of the Kingsglaive. THE PIT now served as a tourist attraction and barracks for when the beasts would be called to war under the watchful eye of their master. When the shades searched for a new home Icarus and Nicku both decided that they would be safest in isolation. The shades and the Kingsglaive rose a collection of islands from the ocean's depths and the quickly built a new paradise known as the Dawn Isles. The shades used their inherent magic powers to create a barrier to make the islands invisible to the outside world. Some say that there are shades in the Capital of Kingstone, but due to them being a minority, and the fact that they are so elusive, they were never confirmed. Disclaimer: All art was created by Nicku himself, not me.
  4. Character Profile: King Icarus Forde

    -King Icarus "Ike" Forde- Icarus Forde is my primary character this season and ruler of the Kingdom of Kingstone. I've had him with me in the ol' walnut brain for five years and this profile is for the version as seen during Season 4 of the Everneth survival series. Born in a floating steampunk city in the sky during its industrial revolution Icarus's life on the impoverished streets of Zebulus was hard. Child labor and outright slavery were widespread and that, combined with the total-war stance it took against its own people in the countless civil wars left Icarus with a growing feeling of dread for his home. It was only once his younger brother was crushed between two massive gears that Ike decided to incite his own war against Zebulus. With his closest friends from the ghetto, Jodie Holmes -a tomboy with undying loyalty and a violent attitude-, Selphy Fitz -a member of the rich Fitz family who ran away from home and was drawn to Ike's straight-forward, get-it-done attitude-, and Mako Varg -Ike's closest friend and protector- he commandeered one of Zebulus's precious airships: The Lady Valkyrie. At age 19, he was captain of the infamous "Sky Pirates" who struck fear in the heart of airship pilots all around Vennterria. As the Sky Pirates grew in number and respect, they had a real impact in transforming Zebulus from the cruel and desolate city into a flourishing hub of culture under Irashi Heart, the new and fair Wingman (President) of Zebulus. As thanks for their service and sacrifice, Irashi gifted Icarus Forde a quarter of the very same tablet that kept Zebulus afloat, as long as they would continue to serve as peace-keepers and defenders of the new and fair Zebulus. Icarus forged the tablet shard into his leather gauntlets, which gave the gauntlets untold fiery power. When the Mantisphere -a wicked and ancient magical seal trapped in time- began to leak magical energy back into the world, a war was started due to a magical arms race. After losing many of his crew and his beloved airship preventing the genocide of Kalador(a mountain capital city of dwarves), which was instigated by the Fitz family, the war was over and Icarus Forde sore. Without his ship and crew, Icarus was without purpose. Seeing war's negative effects first hand, and with his experience fighting, Agusta Rustero's cause was perfect for him. She vowed to unite all of Brytannia under one banner to put a stop to the endless wars between petty kings. Serving in her Queensguard for ten years, he helped her unite the Empire and make her Empress. She was a fine queen and Ike did good under her, becoming her most loyal vassal and trusted advisor. But it was still Vennterria. He lost too much here and decided now that the wars were over he would finally have a chance to get away from it all. The Greek goddess of strife, Eris, began speaking to him in his dreams. She was proud of all the discord and adversity he had faced in his life and felt pity for him. She promised that she would gift him the Apple of Discord, and a safe-haven to colonize a city free from Vennterria's dark past and a safe haven for him and his last remaining crew. He foolishly accepted. It was a long and hard voyage across the sea. But Eris was right, this land was very fertile and stunningly beautiful. Using the power of the gauntlet, and the magic of the Apple, they created the famous capital city of Kingstone in eight short years. They quickly razed or recruited all of the minor settlements and bandit lairs in the area until Kingstone seemed safe from invaders. Even Loden, a malicious entity of unknown purpose, couldn't crack the proud stone walls as the defenders valiantly sent the demonic abomination and his hellish generals back to the pit from whence they came. But a few short days after Kingstone was completed, they learned a terrible truth. Donning the Roman title: "Discordia" Eris revealed multiple degrees and finally an ultimatum from an ancient empire named "Solis" she had intercepted. They contained the truth that Kingstone was built on the ancient ground of a settlement named Hartguard, and that she had set them up for war from the start. Accepting the fact Icarus had to fight once more, he decided he was now too old to wield the gauntlet in the same way he used to. He removed all but a sliver of the tablet from his right gauntlet and gave his left gauntlet to a shade named Nicku Crestshade. He forged 13 swords of different forms and none of them were good enough until he named the thirteenth and final one Brisingr, ancient language for "fire". He forged the Zebulan tablet into it and cut a ruby "trigger" into the pommel. And has since used this and many more magical relics to create a "Kingsglaive" a group of legendary fighters tasked with defending Kingstone and carrying out the King's will. (( Icarus "Ike" Forde is a part of the "Seal of Heroes" universe that I have been working on for 4-6 years now so there is a lot of content that I either forgot to cover or didn't find pertinent. Any questions would be excitedly answered for you and I may be found double-posting or necroing this thread as I remember, create, or experience new content I find relevant or interesting regarding his character. ))
  5. Battle on the 16th of December, 2017.

    In around 13 hours ((12/16/17 1pm EST)), Kingstone will ambush a military encampment, in order to hinder their offensive. We will be doing rounds. Last team standing wins, one life per person, per battle. That means if you die, you're out of the round. The purple border is a soft-border. No spawn-camping should occur since both teams leave their spawn at the same time and have one life each. Rules: -No Elytras. Fly to the battlefield with them and leave them in the chests at near your labeled bed. -No TNT, no lava, and now Flint and Steel. We are not fighting for items and no one needs to lose their stuff. -Every round will be a single life. This means if you die you cannot join the fight until the round is over. Get your stuff but then head back to your spawn. Solis spawns 2858 -6. A mountain, like their home biome. Kingstone spawns at 3137 -136. It is in a cave under a roofed forest, perfect place to set loose an ambush. Solis Spawn Kingstone Spawn
  6. Apply to join the Kingdom of Kingstone!

    "With the recent threats by the Solisian Empire, King Icarus is looking for able-bodied men and women to serve the Kingdom of Kingstone and secure the future of our people. Settlers are waiting for strong-willed leaders to colonize dozens of new locations near the Kingstone border. There are also spots open on King Icarus' Royal Council. Tryouts for the Kingsglaive are also being held if you think you have the strength and perseverance that it takes to become one of the elite legendary warriors." -One of the hundreds of letters sent by the Capital to all over the world seeking warriors and architects alike. Kingstone Recruitment Thread Kingstone is looking for builders to serve as vassals who will create interesting settlements and have the dedication to finish them, as well as warriors sworn to protect the crown and join us in battle when the banners are called. Looking to be a Vassal? To be a vassal of Kingstone is to hold a position of power and weight in the Kingdom. These are dukes, barons, mayors, counts, etc. If you are looking to build in Kingstone you will need the dedication to finish the build and the ability to stay within our "universe" if you think you can do both then I would ask you reply to this post with a few things: The origin/purpose of your settlement (Mirkwood, a bandit lair that decided to bend the knee rather than be razed. After years of loyalty, it became a flourishing village.) A quick description of your character (Alfrety, a mage who was banished from his home and befriended the king, now serving as headmaster of the Wizards' Tower and crucial member of the Kingsglaive.) An answer to the question: "Would you be willing to join in on optional/impromptu roleplay events as well as be a member of our discord and join voice chat during battles or crucial events?" Here is a map of Kingstone. The areas marked in red are open to new vassals, the ones marked in gold belong to the Kingdom of Kingstone but are so far from the Capital that it would be preferred to build closer. Purple is TwoEdgedDeath's but you might be able to get it from him if you ask nicely and promise to build something asian-esque. [EDIT: TwoEdgedDeath agreed to hand over Nippon to whoever qualifies.] Looking to be a member of the Kingsglaive? To be a member of the Kingsglaive is to be a part of a group of warriors empowered by magical relics (such as the Apple of Discord, Cartian's Scythe, or the Holy Grail) to slaughter the King's enemies and to protect the King's people. If you are looking to fight as one of these legendary mercenaries, you will need the natural will to fight and kill as well as the ability to hold your own in combat no matter the odds or stakes. If you think you have the combat talent as well as spirit to take the fields of battle yourself I would ask you to reply to this post with a few things: A quick description/origin story of your character (Agista Rustero, daughter to the Empress of Brytannia, tired of living in her mother's shadow she ran away and became a master sorceress, then chosen by the Scythe of Cartian to wield it, she went with King Icarus from Vennterria in order to earn Agusta's forgiveness.) An answer to the question: "Would you be willing to spar with me and Nicku as well as other Kingsglaive members in order to hone your skills and prove yourself?"
  7. The Kingstone Royal Spawn Embassy has finally opened its gates to travelers and merchants! Now that the path has been cleared out and the wilderness pushed back, it is ready to open up its arms to all! Want to learn more about Kingstone? Tired of walking Nether paths? Fireworks getting too expensive these days? Enjoy an immersive and impressive atmospheric walk to the great Capital City of Kingstone! Are you a Kingstonian who needs safety from natural disasters or foreign threats? The emergency shelter is here to protect and serve you. Come on down to Spawn, just east of the Parliment building! (170,60) Also thinking about making a cinematic video of me walking down the path with nice music etc, but there is a certain tower that needs finishing first, but for now feel free to poke around.
  8. A Great Empire Expands into Everneth.

    So every server I play on I end up building a great city/empire because I play Minecraft for the story building and architecture. I've gotten mostly God-gear again and it's time to begin construction. I suppose this thread might be a megathread for me to post updates and lore and residential opportunities and even, hopefully, conquest updates. But for now, I have to decide where it will go, what will be its name and place in my own persistent universe. Where will it go? Personally, I always build around 2,000 blocks away from spawn. This way I don't step on toes or take up space, but I've found that my cities often go unvisited and it all feels like a ruin or a relic from an ancient golden age. This server is more populated and healthy, in my opinion, but I still figure I should stay in spawn to be the backbone of the area's activity and a great monument for new players and old to become inspired and, by their visits, inspire me. I illustrated some ideas onto a piece of the geography: There are a couple problems with this setup, however. This map not only consumes an ungodly percentage of the residential area but it is simultaneously way too small for any kind of complex and reasonable capital city, let alone the great city of Kingstone. Pair that with the fact I haven't talked to the Parliment about this, it brings up a lot of problems so my eyes are set here: More about the city. I built a city called Kingstone once before, and it was to this day my favorite builds I have ever worked on, but it was destroyed in a reset and the server itself was less than active. While I still have the world and plan on finishing it someday offline, I feel it's glory must be public and as such, I am thinking this kingdom will be Kingstone Reborn. It will be as if Icarus Forde and Agusta Rustero's royal fleet landed here and colonized the fertile shores of eastern Everneth instead of Carrotcraft's mountainous plains. I imagine I will also have a great port with a few warships and one of them being the Lady Valkyrie, flagship of the new Royal Navy, and on this ship will be a nether portal to spawn where an identical flagship will roleplay sail you to Kingstone. Also, the horse route will be fully pathed and possibly with a bunch of cool forests and abandoned shelters maybe an inn and some terraformed greenery on the way. Too bad that everyone including myself with just Elytra over. Still, if I ever find a warhorse worth of the title of Boris 'the Bold' I will gladly use this path. The city will also have multiple tiers, and should the city ever come under siege, the attackers would need to fight through three levels of defense to capture the castle. With this, I will also try and fill each tier with the respective classes from the lowest peasant to the King and his Royal Family. Also, make sure to check out the church of the seven, and the multiple shrines to Bellona and Ra and other real-world deities. And the libraries, which will be teeming with lore surrounding the past present and fiction of Kingstone, Brytannia, and whispers of entire other universes. I appreciate you reading through this and pray you will continue to check up on this thread as I release pictures and progress reports, and when it is finally all built, you will see the stunning cinematic I create from all my builds.
