Oh sorry! Lol. I'd prefer to just play stuff out in the game hun. If you make a Guard, he may or may not be the Queens fav, or even used by her. We ARE talking the Queen of Air and Darkness here.
+1 on this, but ultimately up to the GM's of course. Though I guess having an older or just as old as the Queen char would work, since it runs with the books theme. I mean look at all the Men. Ageless. However, unless he is the Sidhe King, he should be allowed only one Hand.
I'll take this opportunity to point out though that honestly...his age won't matter in certain aspects, like when the Queen orders something. Her word is law.
Sorry if I've overstepped my bounds Tizz and Soral!
Stop the madness!!! haha....
OK, In my opinion Shadow Walkers age is irrelevant. Age does not influence who the ruler is. Is it practical to say that bubby's character has been the one and only ruler of the Unseelie court forever? Monarchs can be killed, step down ( i.e Cel vs Merry) , ect. The way everyone has developed their characters, almost all of them come from different geographical locations. The sidhe race was once widespread and extensive across the world, until the last couple centuries, so lets say that Shadow Walkers char is ancient and so is bubby's... maybe she feels threatened by this like Andais was of Barinthus.
Barinthus/Manannan Mac Lir - A sea god and one of the Queen's Ravens, Barinthus is one of the most powerful members of the Courts. He was long known as the "Kingmaker" for his involvement in the selection of court rulers, and supported first Essus, now Merry for the Unseelie throne. Queen Andais fears that Barinthus may make an attempt for the throne himself, and he is the only member of the guards Andais has forbidden Merry to have reproductive intercourse with, for fear that Barinthus would become Merry's consort and the Unseelie King. Barinthus recently had some of his powers returned via metaphysical sex with Merry, and has become a member of Merry's guard.
That said, in regards to the 'two hands of power', lets limit it to one hand of power per character, to be fair to everyone.
Are there any other questions or suggestions or complaints? Soral and I welcome any and all queries, I want to make sure that everyone is on the same page and that all issues are laid to rest before we start.
Speaking of starting, I am planning on starting the actual RP within the next 48hrs.
SOOOOOOO YAY!!!... -Tizzation
