The Black Mansion - WIP

Post by WolfenGrey on Wed Aug 10, 2016 8:41 am

Welcome to The Black Mansion!

PLEASE READ ALL INFO BEFORE JOINING!


The Black Mansion is home to all mythical creatures, whether they are Light or Dark. Your Host is the Lady Arane, head of the Vampire Clan. You may come and live a life here if you so chose, although things are not as peaceful as they seem...


HISTORY OF BLACK MANSION

Decades before Arane took heir to the Vampire Clan, the world was a different place. Rather than live in peace, Lord Kell brought war to the three main species of Mythical Creatures who dominated the world at the time: Vampires, Werewolves and Lycans. Kell thought that violence was better than peace. He believed that the races couldn't mix like that of the lycan's created from Werewolves and Vampires breeding together. To resolve this problem, Kell commanding his mass of Vampires against the Werewolves and Lycan and this resulted in a bloody war that resolved heavy casualties on both sides. The races turned on each other, and within ten years, no one had the armies or strength left to fight. Kell, exhausted, fathered a family and forgot about his desire to destroy the world. His son, Arch became head of the clan after his father died of a fatal disease and within Arch's rein, he kept the world at peace. He married the lady Alma and produced the child Arane who was to be the next heir to the throne. However, during the time of which Arane had taken the throne, a secretive group known as The Tryphs, were plotting something against the line of Vampires, and peace wasn't staying for long. The Leader of the Tryphs, Aros, was spying on Arane and her mother for her father had passed from an attack by the Tryph and now she must fight for peace once more, just as her ancestors before her.

✞The Ranks✞
The Vampires exist together in a single group called a Clan. In the the clan there are ranks: The Arrow(AKA Head), the Adviser, the guards, and the peasants. You may find that neither rank has an easy task. They feed on the blood of both human and animal alike.

The Arrow - The Head is also know as the leader of the Clan. She controls all of what happens throughout the clan. She should be consulted if there has been a breach of the mansion, or problem between the clan members themselves.

The Adviser - The Adviser is someone who assist with political matters and organizing battle plans of the clan. He/she also give advise on strategy and decision making of the clans next move.

The Guardsmen - These Vampires patrol, defend, and ensure order about the Clan. They also control the whereabouts of the other species; what is out of bounds, rules of the mansion, etc. In this rank, consists of one Head Guardsman known as the Master Fighter. The Arrow and Master Fighter are close and the Master follows the Arrow constantly for he is the protector of his leader.

The Peasants - Peasants are consistent of servants and simply other vampires who carry no important rank. You could consider them as simply citizens of the Vampire race, defenseless some but they live their lives as they see fit.

EXTRAS

The Council
The Council includes simply the Leaders of each race and two of each race whom are the most loyal of their species and/or the most loyal. They participate in meeting of which the Arrow appoints. The Council members make full on decisions that dealt with the three species altogether instead of a single race.

The other Species
These species are other whom roam the world outside the Black Mansion territory. Creatures such as Unicorns, centaurs, Faeries, Minotaurs, elves, etc are included.(Any other creatures are accepted!)

Marriages
Marriages must be consulted with the Arrow. The ceremonies will take place in front of the Mansion itself. Once married, the lovers will be listed here.(Displayed as follows: Husband + Wife)

THE RP PLACES

Inside the Black Mansion
The Mansion - The Black Mansion stands in a clearing in a dark wood where most would stumble across it without even noticing it. It's stone structure is smoked black as if burned, the pillars of it's porch are coiled in vines. Tall oak double doors block entry to the interior of the structure. The Mansion is two stories and consists of some number of guests rooms, an Infirmary, a Ball room, four bathrooms on each of the four wings. It has a massive dinning hall, capable of seating nearly hundreds of people. A nursery for young to be cared for. It is home to mainly the Vampire race and housed to the Arrow herself. It is natural dark in the mansion, only lit by torches along every wall you see for the Vampires seemingly like it this way.

` Main Hall - A long and narrow Hallway of which you enter from the front door and from the door on the end of the hall. A violet carpet lead your path over black marble flooring. On the walls, you may find the portraits of the Vampire ancestors who once walked the hall in their times of ruling.

The Library - The Library is a vast place full of knowledge and wisdom. On every wall books are place neatly on shelves from floor to ceiling. Dark oak tables with high backed chairs. Torches line the four corners and candle stands light the tables. High windows let in a fair amount of light and a fireplace the shape of a den burns every night at the head of the room.

The Kitchen - It is unclear where the kitchen is held. It seems that only the Arrow would know where the entrance was and the servants as well. It is said that it is kept to keep others from stealing.

Infirmary - The Infirmary is where the wounded are housed. Simple bedding covered in linen line both walls. Here it is lit also by torchlight. Servant and maids tended to the wounded. The flooring was a pale blue with dark curtains over the windows, sometimes pulled back for those who need it.

Council Room - The Council Room is located in a chamber towards the back of the Mansion. It is between the kitchen and a large library. Inside this room is a round table made of solid, grey stone and high backed chairs for each of the three leader of each species and their two most loyal subjects(The seconds in command. For the Lycans it be the one most loyal to him).

The Ball Room - The Ball room is where the dances are held on special occasions. It is floored with white marble and thick black curtains are either blocking the windows or pulled aside to reveal a beautiful star lit sky. Musicians play music on a stage at the front of the room. Tables of gourmet foods lined the walls.

Dinning room - The Dinning room was where all sat to enjoy their meals throughout the day. Every species came and went from the dinning hall as they pleased. They ate at a strong dark wood oak table the length of the room and housed at least a hundred or more occupants. The Arrow always sat at the head of the table. The hall is lit with torches lit by a mysterious blue flame. A stoned fireplace burns behind the Arrows chair.

Nursery - A place where the young of the three main species were kept. It was organized so that the Vampire children were cared for at the back where less light would invade and burn them to death. The werewolves on the left side and Lycans on the right. Rarely, were other species kept here for the Arrow only permitted visitors of other races out side her territory to be a guest in her home for certain reasons.


Roaming the Territory
Deadly Gardens - In the back of the mansion expands an enormous amount of a flourishing paradise. Flowers bushes and trees are scattered about in all sorts of different varieties. A maze stands on the far left corner where lovers escape for an evening stroll. You may find occasional gardeners tending here to the flower beds. A great fountain stands in the middle of it all. A solid statue of a Vampire woman looking up towards the sky is said to have been the cousin of the Arrow once. Cobblestone paths guide you carefully through the forest of flowers and plants.

Pastures - The Pastures are located south and north of the Black Mansion. They are called South and North Meadows. The South Meadow is only used during the Spring and Summer Seasons. The North Meadow is used during the Fall and Winter seasons. The Arrow will be sure to announce when the Meadows are open during the appropriate times.

Red Wood Forest - Red Wood Forest is what occupies most of the Black Mansions territory. It covers about fifteen acres of it. It is where hunting is done. Only during the Fall and Spring does the Arrow send out the hunters to fetch food to last until the next hunt.

Arena - The Arena is located north east of the Black Mansion in a crater said to have been created by a falling star decades earlier. Occasionally, warriors would practice their fighting skills of the three races. Challenges would be held here as well. The crowds would be standing upon the craters edge as they watched the fierce battles. The Arrows and the council would be seated in high backed chairs of which were shaded by a single Umbrella tree.

Stables - The Stables is a strong wood structure built to house many animals such as horses, cows, goats, chickens,etc. Other Species may house their pets here when permitted my the Arrow. There would be stable hands and occasional Guardsmen and such tending to their horses.

The East boundary - The East Boundary is along a forest line of trees that are part of the Red Wood Forest. Guardsmen would be posted here night and day to keep watch for any intruders.

The West Boundary - The West Boundary also has a forest line. But unlike the East boundary, it slopes upward along a hillside. This boundary is more easily guarded because enemies are so easily spotted from the higher elevation.

The South Boundary - The South boundary is along an expanse of open tall grasslands. It is part of the Pastures but not enough to spook danger. It is here that the lasso of a lake separates the boundary from the territory.The lake is know as Bird Lake for it's large populations of birds throughout the year.

The North Boundary - The North Boundary is located at the base of a mountain. The weather is always cooler in this area and harsher as well. Guardsmen would need to be well prepared for battling such weathers. The land in this area is rocky and jagged and known to be called the Grey Spot of the territory for it's lack of plant life.

The Outskirts and Beyond the Territory
NOTE(You may PM an RP place to suit your character and I will add it to this post. Making up scenes in the RP is prohibited!)

Small Human Village - The Human Village exists on the outskirts of the territory. It is both dangerous and also useful to the Mythical Creatures of the world. The Human provide certain things for trade but they are not so kindly some are. The Arrow advises caution when venturing here for she does not post guards in this area, tending to keep peace between the races. The Humans live in small huts and care for their own animals and young. The Arrow sometimes bides in persuading the Human leader to aid her in her cause.
