18+ tamora pierce based court intrigue rpg
Since the fall of the Thanic Empire 500 years ago, Tortall has been one of the reigning kingdoms to emerge from the once shattered Eastern Lands. With the Kingdom having experienced nearly a century of peace, it now approaches a new dawn with the crown upon the brow of an ambitious King that desires one thing - more. Does Tortall face a new era of expansion, conquering her neighbours, or will she be torn asunder from the inside out?

EASTERN LANDS is an 18+ mature historical fantasy site based on Tamora Pierce's Tortall works. Focused on court intrigue and consequence of action, we are not for the faint of heart. Prepare to win, or die.

Chapter I: Barzun
August 335 of the human era
With the majority of King Jonathan's court in Barzun, international intrigue is on everyone's minds. While the Barzunnis have given a mixed welcome, there is much to be said about the chilliness of the other ambassadors. Not everyone is pleased that the King of Tortall has come to meddle in their businesses. The court needs to discover the reasons behind their international trouble before the only solution is war.

The Crown of Tortall has made a sudden "peace visit" to Barzun, much to the irritation and alarm of everyone involved. Intrigue and suspicion are abound - can war be prevented?
