Intro to the story:
The kingdom of Renaldi, in the land of Calimar, had known peace for generations. It was ruled by a kind generous man, known to most as 'Our Beloved Father', but his official title was and remains King Magnus I.
Born to Magnus were two sons, each of them hungry for power and eager to take what each of them believed to be their right. The throne of Renaldi. They will do whatever it takes to make their dreams and ambitions come to life. Whatever it takes.
Gabriel the older of the two, believes that he is the rightful heir as the oldest and as such cares little about frivolity. He believes, as does his father, that the people will love him no matter what.
Merlin, the younger son, is the consummate politician, in the eyes of the public, more charismatic than his brother, but perhaps, just perhaps, darker then anyone has ever known.
Enter the Royal Kingdom of Renaldi, We are waiting for you.
Hello, at the time this is being written there is not a group home for this story, this is simply a request for interest, and casting key roles in the story should others find it of interest.
The roles of Magnus, Merlin and Gabriel are taken, however there are plenty of other roles that will be available from their respective families, councils, travellers, renegades, resistance, the list goes on of possibles.
The setting is science fiction, steampunk and a bit of other things mixed in, hopefully that will appeal to a mass audience as it done hoping that it will feel like a little bit for everyone.
The specifics of the story can be discussed here if there are any questions or by PM if you prefer. The best way I can think to describe some of the dynamic would be the Tudors meet Game of Thrones. I also have plans to incorporate a space station at a future date once the other (basically the planet) is established. The space station will be housed by a governing body of some kind (think the Federation for Trekkies), but hasn't been used in years and is believed to be haunted.
Thank you in advance to any that read this and show interest
