Clan Overview and Information

Clan Type: Player-owned state/city, political RP, Military RP, Storytelling Plot
Clan Leadership: Arvedui, PersianQueen
Recruitment Status: Active

The Grand Duchy of Burthope is a fairly large feudal fief under the Crown of Asgarnia. Standing in between the White Wolf Mountain, Troll Country and the Great Wall. The people of Burthope are defined by their winters and forever long conflict against the Troll invaders. Sharing the main faiths of Guthixian and Saradominists, the two populations live in an eased peace. Change coming slowly if any at all to the land. The Imperial Guard is one of the only standing military forces in the Kingdom. Most known for their Longbowmen, the Imperial Guard defends the natural choke point in the valley against the Troll attackers. Burthope is a rich land, having a close trading contract with the Dwarven Kingdom and having a fair amount of agriculture.

Throughout the history of Burthope and the Valley, they have stood as the solid defenders of Asgarnia. No matter leaders that came before, Burthopeians are Asgarians. And stand by the Crown.

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". -Matthews 7:12

It is simple, I, nor will the Clan, put up with those who only come here to ruin other people's days. Let this be an area of our lives where we all explore a mutual hobby together leaving the hate at the door.

Lying, Out-Of-Character Motivated Actions, Bullying, Metagaming, and the works will be met with a single second chance. Everyone has a right to another chance to prove that they just messed up. After that point, you, myself and the rest of the Admins will have a long chat.

Asgarnia’s justice system is centered around the Queen. All citizens are offered basic human rights as defined by the Queen. All citizens guilty of treason will be executed. All citizens swear allegiance to the throne.

The Erysailite Code
The laws and liberties regarding Asgarnia and its citizenry are contained within a document called the Erysailite Code, drafted and compiled by Queen Erysail, and her cousins Prince James the Younger of the Asgarnians and Prince Adrian of Albamonte.

The Nobility
The Nobles of Burthope are a proud and stiffed neck group. They are the wartime generals, the peace time keepers. They see to the day to day running of their fiefs, pay taxes to the Duchess and Crown, train their Knights, Men-At-Arms, and Peasants.

To become of Noble Birth, you must show proof of nobility going back 5 generations or, become Knighted on the field of battle for being of upstanding character and renown.

A noble can have upwards to 50 Knights, 150 Men-At-Arms, and well over 300 peasants when the banners are called for war.

In times of war, a Marshal will be named from the nobility to lead the Burthopeian forces. If called up by the Crown, the Grand Duchess will assume that role until they come under proper command of the Crown's chosen Marshal. Only the Duchess and the Crown can call the banners, though the nobles can do as the please in their own fiefs to keep law and order, defend against bandits, and such.

Nobles are given the right of ransom if captured in battle, they have the right to trial by combat if they wish it so, and can only be trialed before the Duchess or Crown.

The landed nobility is as follows;

Grand Duchess of Burthope: Her Royal Highness, Grand Duchess Cassandra Grey, Admiral of the Asgarnian Navy
The Prince(Princess) of Burthope: Empty
The Earl of Taverley: EMPTY
The Vicount of Avalon: EMPTY
The Vicount of Albany: Albert Trevithick
The Baron of Greenwood: Frederick Grimdark
The Baron of Varis*a: Lord Jakob Grey

There are two titular titles;
The Duke of Monvallis
The Margrave of Mortacollina
The Vicount of Crstalmere: Tristan Ak*ran

The Imperial Guard

The Imperial Guard is an honored and respected position in both Burthope and Asgarnia. The defenders of the wall, the Imperial Guard as a long and proud standing history. Most known for their never ending conflict against the Trollish invaders.

The Imperial Guard offers a chance of greatness for those not born of noble blood. Most of the new nobility coming out of the ranks from the common born footmen. The only professional fighting force inside of the Duchy not counting the Levies.

It is more common enough for the third to fourth born sons or daughters of noble families to be sent to the Imperial Guard to earn glory for their namesake and at a chance for starting their own Family.

The 'Footmen' of the Imperial Guard are common born. Coming from the poorest selection of the Burthope for the promise of food and pay. Out of this section comes the fabled longbowmen of the Imperial Guard. For those not able to wield the bow, they are armed similar to regular Men-At-Arms. Spears, pole arms, war hammers and swords.

A small selection are able to become Mounted Footmen and follow the mounted Officers of the Imperial Guard into battle.

The 'Officers' of the Imperial Guard are of noble birth. Either born into the nobility or have been knighted through other means. The difference between the Officers and Footman are obvious. From the way they call themselves to their armor and to being mounted. They wear the finest steel their Families can buy. The Officers lead small selections of Footmen.

The Lord(Lady) Commander of the Imperial Guard oversees it all. From their training, to combat operations, to ensuring they are paid and fed for. Usually the Commander of the Imperial Guard is a family member of the Duchess.

The Imperial Guard Uniforms

The footmen of the Imperial Guard wears a darken Gambian over a set of chain. The front bearing the crest of Burthope. Most footmen wield the deadly longbow that Burthope is known for. The weapon standing well over 6 feet tall, to wield the beast the Imperial Guard are the biggest and well built men inside of the Duchy. Made of yew and wielding bodkin arrows, the Burthopeian Longbow man is feared by the Trolls and bandits alike.

The non-archer footmen carries items from spears, warhammers, battleaxes and swords.

With a small selection being Mounted Footmen and being slightly better armed than regular footmen.

The Officers of the Imperial Guard are of noble birth, meaning that that they wear the best armor their Families can buy. They wear a layer of chain underneath a black and blue surcoat that bears the crest of Burthope. Most often enough on the top right hand corner they have the sigil of their Household or the Star of Saradomin. They often only fight on horseback, only dismounting from their warhorses to fight when there is no option left.

Out-of-Character Uniforms

The Levies

Controlled by the local nobility, the Levies are their personal forces. Ranging from mounted Knights, to Men-At-Arms and lastly peasants. They are armed, trained, paid and fed by their liege.

In times of conflict, or when the Grand Duchess's calls for them, the nobles raise their levies and march to meet their liege. The last time the Levies were called was to push the troll invaders from Burthope and back into the mountains.

A rough idea for numbers for the Levies are as follows;

For example, the Earl of Taverly.

Earl of Taverly:
50 Mounted Knights
-150 Men-At-Arms
-300 peasents

The Port of Avalon

The largest port in Burthope and second only to Sarim in the Kingdom. The Port of Avalon offers direct entrance to the sea. It is the hub of trading for Burthope and for the overland routes to reach the deeper northern parts of the Kingdom of Asgarnia.

The Port becomes rich from taxes and tariffs for all goods that past through their harbors and ports. They have a large ship building yard that was founded by the Blackwood Family decades past. It is now one of the largest building yards for the Kingdom.

Port Avalon also hosts a large and massive Asgarnian Naval Base. Hosting two of the Asgar Fleets.

The Viscount of Avalon would be a very wealthy noble, enjoying the benfits and perks of being the Lord of the trading hub. His/her Knights would have higher grade armor and levies that would rival the size of the Earl of Traverly.

The Viscount is:

The Earldom of Traverley

The Earl is the second largest landed nobility in Burthope after the Duchess herself. Not rich like the Vicount of Avalon, the Earl makes it up in pure man power. Being positioned in the heart land of Burthope the Earl controls most of the food growing powers of the Duchy. With most of his peasants being only simple farmers, his/her Earldom is well fed and of hearty people.

The Earl has the most Men-At-Arms and peasants as his levies. Lacking in Knights, the Earldom makes up in trained Men-At-Arms.

The Earldom is also the center of the Guthixian faith inside of the Duchy and namely the Kingdom. It holds the grand sight of the Taverley Henge which was built generations passed by a nameless group of Druids.

The Earl of Traverley is:

The Defenses of the Duchy

Burthope Keep - The Keep stands at the nature choke point that leaks upwards into Troll Country. With a small but well built wall in front of it, the Keep stands as a fortress to keep out the Trollish invaders. Armed to the teeth with the fabled Burthopian cannons and longbowmen, the trolls have never been able to capture the fabled Keep. The Imperial Guard is based here.

Hadrian's Burthope's Great Wall - Separating Burthope from the rest of the Kingdom, the wall stands both as a sign of Burthope's fierce Independence, but also one of the best defense lines ever seen. Running all the way from the coast and upwards until Troll Country. The wall is manned by the standing men of the Imperial Guard, stationed at small forts along the wall. These forts acts as the border crossing points into the Duchy.

The Flames of Saradomin - Positioned near the outskirts of the Port of Avalon. Two statues of Saradomin stands to welcome the traders and travelers into Burthope. In times of war, a nearby station can bring forth a massive chain wall to stop any attacking ports from striking the Port and Naval base. Usually manned with a few fire mages, the wall has the ability to catch fire to further the defense. Earning the name 'Flames of Saradomin'.

Event Name:
Clark Expedition; Part I
Date:
When we have people
Time:
TBA
Location:
Burthope; Troll Country
Summary:
Back during the founding days of Burthope, where the threat of the Trolls was the main and only issue of the new founded Burthopian Gonverment. The Prince ordered an Expedition to take place, to map and trekk through the rocky Troll Land until the Far Ice Lands beyond there. It was famously called the "Clark Expedition", lead by Lord James Clark.

Only that, the Expedition was labeled as a complete failure, with only one survivor making their way back to Burthope, telling grand tales of a path that cut underneath Troll Country, a way of safe travel. It was all put into a journal that was lost to the ages. Until then General Frederick Grimdark came upon it into the Ancient Archives under the Burthope Palace.

With the trolls being beat for the current moment this offers a rare chance to retrace the expeditions steps.

It is time to retrace the steps of Lord Clark and his famous Expedition that to this day was thought commonly to be a myth and legend of Burthope.

I would suggest you have done a fair bit of the Troll Country quests to allow full entrance into the region.

If you wish to sign up, just post a small little application about the character. This would be open to all matter of private interests and government interests.

Sorry, I didn't really make that clear.

It's for the character itself I just spaced it out on the app. And that's only if you actually wish to fill out the whole thing. You can just throw up User/Name/Age/Job which is on the bottom of the app post.

Name: Lillith Ashborn
Age: 16
Race: Human
Religion: Zarosian/none
Occupation: Herbalist, scavenger, hunter and archer

Brief Description: Lillith was born in a tiny village in the middle of the wilderness. She was born in the middle of an ashstorm which led to her name, Ashborn. She learned from the locals about herbs and animals, becoming self sustaining. A few months after she became 16, her vilalge was whiped out while she was out scavenging for food and resources. It hit her quite hard and she made up her mind to travel south where she had always heard that the god wars had been raging on for forever. Little did she know that the god wars ended and that cities changed names.

Brief RP history: Started off in RS and went on for a couple of years of roleplaying with *WK and Kandarin before going away for quite a while, (I think half a year.) which I spent along with forum RP. I then returned to RS for the sake of nostalgia.

Your user rings a bell but I am not placing a name to a location or RP group.

Either way, accepted.
