Seeking a player to take on the role of a princess. This will be a lesbian themed (mostly) story that will take place in a quasi fantasy/historical setting. I've taken some license with the setting and background, but it is largely based on historical sources.

You are a princess, and the only offspring of your widowed father, King Burebista. Suitors are seeking your hand in marriage. The hope being a male child born of that union would protect the lineage of male successors. Your character however isn't really keen on this, and in fact (depending) has inclinations towards the fairer sex.

A crisis has struck the kingdom however as the princess, you, has been kidnapped by the lecherous Witch of Hercynia (me), and enemy of the king and his people. Her realm is within the confines of a forbidding forest, called the Hercynian. It is a place of mythic evil and one which no one wishes to enter.

More background follows below. Looking for an interested, and detailed writer. Not all has been revealed and will come to light as the story unfolds. We can take this in a number of directions but your proclivities should be fairly wide open. I do not however expect anything along the lines of heavy domination, gore, mutilation or anything like that. The role of the princess would suit a writer comfortable playing the part of a submissive female attracted to an older woman who loves you as an equal but is nonetheless is dominant

Feel free to reply here with your interest, or PM me. Either works. Thanks!

Kingdom of Dacia
There once was a storied land the great Ptolemy charted in his Geographia, now lost in the fires of Alexandria. It was in a time before the emperors of Rome cast their eyes on this land for conquest. Its wise leaders welcomed emissaries of antiquity, those Greek scholars and men of science that brought with them their knowledge. And so the people of Dacia flourished behind the safety of walls made of mortar-less stone, running water brought down from the springs high in the Orastie mountains and their fields irrigated by the Mures river.

It was King Burebista who, by force of his will and sword, brought together the disparate tribes of Dacians into a united realm. There in the Mures valley, in the shadow of the Oresties, Burebista fortified his rule and built the foretress castle of Huniad. Burebista descended from a line of chieftains. While his lineage was of royalty, the people under his rule were free men and women. Craftsman and blacksmiths made and sold their wears in open markets, and women wove fine clothing worn by royal and commoner alike.

Not all was fair in the Kingdom of Dacia. The Witch of Hercynia haunted the forest lying on the southern edges of the Mures valley. As such the king’s people were denied the valuable timber and wild game of the forest. So feared were her minions and whispered were her evil deeds none could be convinced to root out the malaise. It was said she was a crone of dark powers and whose visage struck fear and disgust in all who dared look upon her.

Such worries and fears were all but on the fringes of the Dacian people’s concerns however. After all, the king’s daughter, Princess Arestia had come of age, and suitors from around the realm came to seek her hand in marriage, and their place among the royal house of Burebista. Her fair beauty was renown, as was her fickleness. Most suitors were turned away, never winning the king’s audience, and the few that did failed to meet with the princess’ favor. No matter, the people said, she deserved the man of her liking, and she was young yet. There was time.

Tragedy had struck the House of Burebista years ago. Burebista’s queen, the princess’ mother passed away, a victim of Great Sickness that plagued the realm during those years. Seeking to solidify his rule with a male heir, the king sought the hand of the queen’s sister, Vella. She scorned his overtures however. It was rumored she favored the verses of Greek poetess’ and the company of her olive skinned handmaiden overly much. She was banished from court, never to be seen again, so angry and distraught was Burebista.

And so if a rightful heir could not be produced within the king’s bedchamber, the male scion of his daughter would suit the royal barristers’ reading of custom and law. If only one could be found that met the king’s scrutiny and the princess’ liking.
