    Applications for Noble Family approval are performed on this thread. There are several ways to apply for Nobility, fore mostly by submitting a pre-roleplay application (family has not yet been made, and not been roleplayed at all yet), or a post-roleplay application (family that has already been active for some time as commoner). After this consideration, several rules apply:

    Application Rules
    1. When applying you understand that Nobility is not always going to be a fun system. The system will try to work with you, but you should always expect players to work against you. Nobility also has a much stricter code of conduct than non-Noble roleplayers, with passive aggressive communication and meme-warfare being strictly punished.
    2. You are permitted first generation nobility, but this will have effects on your court standing. Old families generally are less wealthy or less intensely involved with their lands, while new families are wealthier but lack the deep and historical connections to the land and people and are generally on more shaky foundations.
    3. You are expected to play a noble and not an anti-noble who tries to be "one of the commoners" and is "saddled with this duty they don't want". Nobles in our lore are people who /love/ their position and would rather die than live their lives as commoners. You can lie to commoners and pretend to be one of them, but it should be obvious in your noble-to-noble interactions that your character isn't an anti-noble.
    Applications will be rigorously examined for quality. Additional questions may be asked of you in Rp Com Discord Tickets if the Dm wishes to have a further interview. Make sure you are on the Rp Com Discord and your Username is the same as your Forum username, or easy to find.

    Application Template

    • Family: Name (Single word names please)
    • History: Origins (Old money or New money? Where do they come from? What is their culture?)
    • Leaders: (You must assign 1 primary Leader, and 1 backup Leader. These will bear responsibility)
    • Members: (You must assign 2 Family Members, or 2 Family Vassals, see rules below)
    (That's it, but please consider the below rules)

    Additional Template Rules

    • When needing to fill in a name of a player, always fill in their OOC name and their Character Name.
    • 1 Man families are not permitted. You must have at least 1 Leader and 1 Backup Leader.
    • You must have 2 extra Family Members, as an additional requirement to the above, thus bringing the total people in the family to 4 as a requirement.
    • You can however substitute these Family Members, with Vassals, from other Commoner Families. These 2 extra Family Members don't need to necessarily be from your Family, you can also get commitments from Commoner Families to help your Family as Vassals, though you must always have at least 2 people in your family (yourself and your secondary leader)
    • Families with Criminal records need not apply, they will be auto-declined.
    • Families who want to use disguises like de Azcoissia, please send in a ticket to consult first.
    • Families based on Slizzar activities, please send in a ticket to consult first.
    Final Considerations
    These are not hard or fast rules, more like guidelines. While we don't block out any particular application format, there are some themes and areas that desperately need more representation in the Noble System, and as such, applications for those fields will be more generously considered, while some of the niches that are considered "Full" will be given less consideration.

    • There are already plenty of Families who do not have actual loyalty to the Emperor. The vast majority of the Families pay lip service to Imperial Loyalty, what with fornicating with Crimson Witch Demons and other illegal matters, while pretending to be loyal. A Family that is genuinely Monarchist (not the type that just uses the Emperor's words to try and be racist, but one who genuinely wants the Emperor to have a more firm hand in politics) would be a good counter balance.
    • There are already plenty of Knight Families. Knights are oversaturated as they are.
    • There are too few Heartland Ceardian/Daendroquin/Bragacao/Leutz-Vixe/Ithanian/Solvaan/Songaskian/Asha/Breizh (not Feka-Asha) Families. These regions will be given more generous considerations.
    • Breizh, Altalar and Songaskian family absence is especially desperate with greater considerations.
    • There are too many Anglian/Velheim/New-Regalian/Etosian Families. These regions will be given more harsh entry considerations for applications.
    • There are too few genuine Unionist, and especially Vultragon Unionist Families. These faithful families will be given more generous considerations, but only if they are genuine and don't skirt the laws of Unionism behind closed doors.

    • Family: Ring'ce-Xia
    • History: Originating from Dexai, Clan Ring'ce-Xia emerged from the populace that stayed onto the western edge of the Ramien Kingdom, leaving the comforts of its familiar environment as the arts and culture of their people were revealed to the outside world of Aloria. Acting true to its name, the acting Patriarch, Xia Fen'ha Te, recently passed the title of Head, took control and focused on trade with other families while learning in the foreign landscape of Farah'deen, establishing an office in the golden sands to bring forth foreign development to the growing clan of Ring'ce-Xia as he marched upon Regalia, bearing the mantle as the spearhead for Clan Ring'ce-Xia and those who invested into his boldness as he lead his company into the West before establishing another office close to home near Essalonia, specifically the Hadravya Kingdom. With their growing wealth and mercantile presence, they established authority and secured a place in the peerage with their land being in the Unified Trade Cities of Narlas, rising past those unfortunate to be stopped by opposing forces and reigned above due to the opening of the Eastern Craze that hadn't calmed from a couple years prior to Emperor Cedromar I's landing onto Dexai. With the flexibility of wealth and influence, Xia Fen'ha Te allowed those he kept restrained within his family to experience the cultures of the West, letting them subject themselves to the whims and wants under a certain degree.
    • Leaders: Xia Fen'ha Te (Yui_Drax), Xia Wan aka Wan-Xia (Wan_Xia)
    • Members: Xia Liang (yuomr), Xia Xxei-Liang (IceCreamSpirit), Xia Xi-Xi (SilverBeenHeckled), Vassal Anna Burgos (CharmedHexes)

    Family: Dragić

    History:
    In the harsh north of Drixagh, two families rose to prominence in the Skagger Wars, unearthing the hold that the Velheim had over the Vladnovolgar and expelling them even further north. Due to their loyalty and fearsome reputation, the families of Dragić and Drozdov were given land, separating the Vladnovolgar in two. The Tvål Treaty was signed in 185 AC, officiating this transfer of land. Mosokovo and Novogorod were formed, with Dragić heading the former and Drozdov, the latter. Both of their rules would be cemented in fear, tradition, loyalty, and order. The house of Dragić spearheaded most of the military operations in the Vladnovolgar, solidifying the strength of Mosokovo despite its underdeveloped city. The political situation between Mosokovo and Novogorod worsened over time, with the latter becoming more prone to republicanism. Drozdov had followed in past Vladno traditions, such as 127 AC when the formation of Vladno Republics occurred. Eventually, Mosokovo split politically from Novogorod entirely, deciding to continue to reign over themselves and ignoring the other entirely.

    In recent years, the family of Dragić continues on with these traditions, fully trusting the Emperor as is expected of them. The line of Dragić still holds strong, loyal, and zealous within the Regalian Empire, showing their unerring faith in Evintarian Unionism. The Knyaz of Mosokovo, Voronkov Dragić, failed to uphold his title and was killed in ritual fashion by his heir, Aleksandra. Aleksandra made sure to follow in the ways of her people, upholding their traditions and heritage to prevent a power struggle. Now, the house of Dragić suddenly has a woman as its leader for the first time in history, who endeavors to take up a patriarchal role, following in her ancestors' footsteps. Her reign may cause instability within the region, but she is tenacious and more than worthy to take up the mantle of command over her people. Mosokovo is driven by a will to be a military powerhouse for the Empire, with unwavering loyalty and zealotry, and with Aleksandra at its head, intends to uphold its traditions and commitments to the crown.

    Family: Delmotte

    History: House Delmotte is said to have been founded in the later years of the 1st Century AC, however, its earliest mentions in official documents in Ithanian censuses are from the year 109 AC. Their humble origins are rooted in the management of low bureaucratic estates in Joyau-vert du Nord, where they remained relatively insignificant until the onset of the Ithanian Gem Boom following Chancellor Vlaas Kade’s conquest of the Ithanian heartlands. The Gem Boom served as a stepping stone and opportunity for the early Delmottes, as it had with so many other Ithanian families who chose to migrate to the Archipelago and settle Pays Sud. The matriarch, Madaleine Delmotte, was the first to establish her name as a relevant polity, receiving title over the lands of la Cresse. This sudden increase in influence led to the majority of her sisters and their children following from Ithania to enjoy newfound relevance and luxury in the local sphere as the region exploded in terms of wealth and prosperity.

    Family: Fauré
    History: With roots that can be link back to Tolonne slaves on Solacia, a man by the name of Frédéric moved to the city of Regalia. After a short time, the Tolo would rise to prominence with his talents in song and his work in trade. Due to this, he was granted land within the region of Tuilleré, which he would return to in order to manage his land and begin the process of creating a family. After many generations, the current patriarch of the family, Theron, would take up the surname of Fauré and move his family to the city of Regalia in order to further his family's wealth and status, while the many of his family would demonstrate much of their culture by performing works in poetry, their passion for philosophy, and shared many of their folklore with those of the peerage.

    Rejected. I will not be entertaining Sihai oriented Sihai noble families. When the Sihai lore comes out, there is room for Sihai applications, but I do not want to approve any Sihai applications from families who haven't at least existed in Regalia for generations and adapted to Regalian culture and largely abandoned Sihai culture. It feels too foreign in lore.
    Rejected. I think that a Lesbian Matriarchy in Vladno lands is completely out of lore canon reality. Even with a potential Vladno rework on the way, the concept of a Lesbian Matriarchy existing in a strictly purist male dominated world where a woman in power would have realistically resulted in a bunch of male nobles conspiring to remove them, is just not possible. There have been recent discussions on Nordhjem becoming Vladno, but that was all under the caveat that the matriarchy ruled through a male presentation as a proxy. Even that however is on unstable legs due to the nature of Vladno lore and would require the female ruler to be very careful about what they say and do and never be seen as the actual ruler in public.
    Approved. I will contact you eventually.

    Family: Guentyr
    History: House Guentyr was founded by the titular Guentyr “the Gentle” sometime around 150AC when he gained a castle and plot of land near the coast of Kintyr. From there, the family grew slowly, maintaining their faith in the Crown and in Breizh Unionism. Mainly staying out of larger political affairs and tending to their textile production, in recent years the current matriarch, Viviwynne, has begun to look outward. Aware of the increasingly irrelevant nature of Kintyr, the family has travelled to Regalia to show off their culture and gain the standing to ensure that the Bokh Holds back home continue to grow for years to come.

    • Family: Oloran
    • History: The earliest mentions of the Oloran Family are seeded back shortly before the Wildering, however, their name did not gain much notoriety until around the first-century A.C. The first notable Oloran in family history was a Teledden of the craft, often creating and selling precious Altalar-crafted jewelry and fabrics. The family for many years thereafter made a monopoly off of overseas trading in what is to be considered more luxury items such as wine and fabrics, based off the coast in Tanaar Ivaelle. The family was led by an iron-fisted Matriarchy throughout the years, though with the passing death of the late Ivasaar Oloran, Vanya Oloran stepped up to current Matriarchy, appointing her niece Contessa as a helping hand in the family affairs. The family aided in wars where they could, though remain largely combat-evasive. Continuing their import of goods, the Oloran family by order of the matriarch has since migrated to Regalia for opportunities abroad.
      House Oloran's front as a family of Teledden/Solvaan Altalar has a deeper connection than what meets the eye; The main bulk of the family is made up of Slizzar, with ties back to Sassrakkand.

    • Family: Cendre Nèe
    • History: House Cendre Nèe came from the ashes of a former house which once bore an oaken tree - struck by the divine light of the Everwatcher. This new house, founded by the two cousin Celates Natalia and Abrielle in the year of 309 AC, is Ithanian and follows Vultragon beliefs. The family celebrates the advancements in Hallowtech, the holiest of crafts, as well as support of the arcane. Through faith, magic, and science - all sides of the same coin, the Parriarch of the family believes innovations in these subjects can help the people of Regalia, which is why they have returned. To be true to their faith, and spread these advancements for the betterment of society.

    Rejected. I do not think you integrated well both IC and OOC in the noble system the last time(s) you tried, and I have no faith that anything has structurally changed.

    Family: Madeira
    History: Starting as a family of traders from the Kingdom of Lusits, the history of the Madeira family can be traced back to a line of wealthy merchantmen. Making their fortune by discovering trade routes then raising capital to exploit them, the Madeiras attained a large amount of influence well before becoming nobility. Their ascendency came after the Vultragon schism became prominent. While some of the more conservative leaders in Bragancao lands straddled the line between tolerance and persecution, the Madeiras fully supported the Vultragon sect. In the end the Vultragon sect became legalized and this lead to it's influence in the region massively growing. The Madeiras, now having the wealth, political capital, and widespread support they needed, forced themselves into local nobility. Shortly after they would begin gradually taking more land and power from families who had stood against the Vultragon schism, first going after opponents and then with their power secured, people who sat on the fence. Their patronage of trade, rapidly growing power, and wealth were used to establish the Madeiras as a political powerhouse in the the Bragancao region.

    This status however has become strained recently, after the passing of the family patriarch Simão Madeira. The heir apparent, Rodrigo, had a history of excess and at first refused to take up leadership of the family. This left his brother, Cristóvão, to pick up the pieces and return the family to glory. Although Rodrigo has since returned, their strained relationship and unclear line of succession places their future in question. As it stands they are known as the grand merchant family, an unwavering bastion of Vultragon faith, and the patrons of exploration and discovery.

    I cannot accept this application. Jouster runs another Noble Family, and OliverOnly is present in House Viduggla. I need unique entry players for applications.

    • Family: Fouchières

    • History: A noble house founded in a Celery, the holy title and privilege of being a priest passing from mother to daughter in the traditional Ithanian way. This inheritance came with schooling not only in faith, but also in the arcane; nurturing both in a belief that magic is a tool and wonder of the world, gifted by the Everwatcher. It was not until recently did a daughter coming of age, and her studies coming to an end, did this new house celebrate advancements in Hallowtech, the holiest of crafts. Through faith, magic, and science - all sides of the same coin, the newest matriarch of the family believes innovations in these subjects can help the people of Regalia, which is why they have returned.

    Family: Gishkim
    History: Originating in Daendroc before the Eronidas migrated to Merredweg in 125AC, House Gishkim was just Polon Eronidas that were soldiers and started to protect the region from the Velheimer raids that plagued the island as their polon was built. The first notable Gishkim was the family's second Dilgan and Gusur who were Chontes of a Polon, they were one of the first dozen of field commanders in the Imperial Army formed under Allamaria I and field generals during the time of Emperor Allestrain I. In 209 AC, they were given land near the Inner Angle Sea for their service to the empire. The family established their house and built a polon in Allestrain’s honor called Allest. The family has since become soldiers for the Regalian Empire, entering into military training at the Imperial Marshalry Academy to train for service, even incorporating it into their Polon, providing a source of soldiers into the empire, but also engineers. They began to rise in power by forming a small league in Merredweg, uniting the polons and creating an influx of Eronidas soldiers and trading with West Anglia with Eronidas goods
    The current head Sargon has inherited the family from his father, serving as Admiral currently for the empire, turning his focus of the family and the league towards the expansion of the empire for the world's betterment and new experiences. As it stands in the present, they are known as a military family and patrons of the military and engineering.

    Family: Verlice
    History: House Verlice sits in the land of Callas, With Charles Verlice as its Patriarch. The family came to wealth in more recent years with the prodigious market of fine Wine and Cheese. This family transpires to be one of great pride and loyalty to the Empire. Their history as nobles dates back to the Drachenwald Crisis, when The founder of the house, Charles’s grandfather (Hugo Verlice) rose to power from the fall of some of the other noble houses at the time. This allowed Hugo and his family to move up and gain more power because they managed to capitalize on the state of other weakening houses. Since then they have built a vigorous substructure, supporting knights and creating a cheese and wine industry from their local brewery and fromagerie.

    Okadoka informed me there was but one slot left on the Spreadsheet for Noble families, as such I had to make a choice between these three. We already have two Ithanian-cornered families, and we already have two Heartland-Ceardian cornered families, while we have no Eronidas Families and nobody in the hinter Anglian region either. As such, by preference seniority, House Gishkim is approved, and the others are delegated (not rejected).

    It is recommended that the delegated (and otherwise rejected) applications of the thread re-try their luck when Noble Applications re-open. There is always entropy when it comes to Noble Families and some of them will dissipate from the system in the coming months for sure. I am closing applications for now.
