Whispers from the Ashes
an original historical fantasy rp
Welcome to Whispers from the Ashes! We are an original historical fantasy set in a discordant land ruled by kingdoms of humans and elves. Dragons dominate the skies and pirates ravage the seas, while sirens entrance those caught in their song. The human Kingdom of Teräs clings to an age of slavery as their former ally, the Kingdom of Turvall, rebuilds from ashes of dragon fire into the nomadic Valkyr bent on vengeance. Wars wage with witches taking sides, and even the elves are dividing, Arathae claiming the forests and Thalassa seeking alliances with the other races. The proud dragonkin rise from the desert, and now none can claim allegiance without backing it with blood.

by Gianna Hiems
Jun 14 2018, 11:14 PM

Capital of the Kingdom of Teräs, Vultora is a metropolitan area, the heart of which is situated on cliffs overlooking the sea. The structures are predominantly stone, except for the outdoor markets. Vultora boasts ever-busy streets, often frequented by parades of returning knights.

dance with me [festival]

Medium-sized cities and small villages are scattered throughout the country side and the trees. The royals rarely come this far unless on official business, but the army frequently travels here, collecting taxes, investigating reports of trouble, and causing trouble too.

Hidden deep in the forests, the capital of the Realm of Arduin is encased by a timelessness found in buildings crafted from nature, and the numerous waterfalls. The elves are a learned people, and they keep to themselves, learning from nature and teaching each other.

an unexpected journey

The city of Thalassa sits across the water from Arathae, but unlike Arathae, it shows a human crafting alongside the elven. A willingness to deal with other races places Thalassa on the coastline, with a busy port and an active marketplace.

Ruins of Raiskata
0 topics - 0 posts

The destruction of Raiskata is a burnt and blackened castle and the skeletal remnants of a once great city. Lost knowledge, technology, and expensive trade items are buried somewhere in the ruins, and many raiding parties often risk the run-in with dragons for the sake of possible riches.

Occupying a wide area of Turvall, the Valkyr are almost nomadic. Their housing structures are temporary, easy to disassemble and move should the army of Teräs come calling. Risk of dragon attacks also make the encampment highly militarized and ready for battle.

Valley of Ashes
1 topics - 12 posts

The Burning of Raiskata left ash to scatter into the wind, coating trees and hardening them to near stone. Now, little grows in the stretch of land except for the unnatural and dark. Few venture into the valley, which is rumored to be haunted by the dead who were burned alive by dragon fire.

Turvalli Peaks
0 topics - 0 posts

The tallest mountains across the kingdom are beyond the ruins of Raiskata, housing great and terrible dragons. But it is the deadly cold that usually kills adventurers before the beasts do.

Calypso's Citadel

And One to the Wee Lass
by Aspen Norling
Jun 10 2018, 12:23 AM

Across from the Crescent Isles, Calypso's Citadel is what pirates call home—when they aren't on the open sea. Filled with taverns and non-respectable businesses, the Citadel is outside the bounds of any kingdom law. And no king dares confront every pirate who makes port at the defensible city.

Dank, dark, and dangerous, the swamplands would be empty, if it weren't for nearby pirates whose pride won't let them say no to a challenge. Any manner of beast can be found in the swamps, and there are rumors of a mysterious lady who lives with them as Queen. Stories from terror-addled minds, no doubt.

Filled with small dunes and dusty mountains, the Skaal Desert is riddled with caverns low and high. Slavers are known to populate the area, though they are in danger of meeting the dragonkin, who call the desert home.

Collapse   At Sea
Crescent Isles
0 topics - 0 posts

The Isles draw witches from across the kingdoms, who dare to come so close to the pirate's citadel in hopes the Isles will grant them greater power. The full moon is said to make the water dance like diamonds on the sand, and when at its peak, fill any witch standing on the beach with power so potent no spell is impossible.

Death of a Lady

Stormy seas hide monstrous beasts like the Leviathan and the Kraken. Emissary vessels, supply ships to the kingdoms, slavers, and pirates ride the waves, and only some hope to reach their destination without a fight.
