or the past five decades, the four kingdoms within the Valoreum Empire have been at war with themselves. It's been so long that nobody truly know why they're even fighting anymore, all that mattered were that too many innocent and good lives were lost in the heat of this war. Unable to put their differences aside and simply talk to each other, they've been at each others throats for over 50 years, a vicious cycle of violence and death. The people of the Empire started to give up hope, what else could be strong enough to overcome such a powerful war. It turns out, the only thing stronger than war, is love. The high general of one kingdom had fallen in love with a common woman of a rival kingdom, after she showed endless kindness to his troops. A display of true love was strong enough to bring the war to an end as the high general and his army refused to attack. With the war slowing to a halt, the individuals in power decided to actually discuss instead of fight. Finally, the war came to an end
The end of the 50 year war calls for much celebration! Especially with such unique and beautiful circumstances, what better way to celebrate than a Empire-wide festival? For all four kingdoms! And so the kingdoms began planning for the Finem Belli Festival, a festival meant for all royalty and commoners alike to recover from the war; To cut down burned bridged and to make new ones. To remind everyone how life was before the war, and possibly, for new relationships to spark. Of course, no one can forget the act of true love that ended the whole war, for the Finem Belli Festival's grand finale shall be the wedding between the high general and the common woman! The love that was strong enough to end wars!
With everyone coming from all over the empire, it is sure to be a joyous occasion indeed! This RP with follow a group of diverse individuals from all four Kingdoms; royals, ladies in waiting, guards, seamstresses, viscounts, bakers, any and everyone will make their way to the Finem Belli Festival! Of course it will be great fun, a time to know others from different Kingdoms and finally be at ease in the celebrations. But with everyone from all Kingdoms coming in one place, along with the war being so fresh, will everything truly be all love, flowers, and weddings?
Well, you know what they say;
All is fair in love and war.
The Kingdom of Platet, also known as the plains kingdom, is found in the heart of the Valoreum Empire. This is the kingdom that is hosting the Finem Belli Festival, as it is the home of the common woman who stole the high general of Pluvia's heart. Platet is known for its vast and flat grasslands and rich soil. They produce most of the Empire's fruits, vegetables, grains, dyes, flowers, as well as a few animal products. The people of Platet are known to be warm and welcoming, they say they mirror their King Louis, who is just as warm and welcoming. Thanks to King Louis and all his children following his example in public, the Plateians have never turned away strangers, they've always welcomed new traditions and cultures into their own with open arms. It's why the plains kingdom will be the perfect setting for the wedding!
Although, what kind of secrets could the King be hiding when the two different women of his five children are both dead?

The Kingdom of Arborious, also commonly referred to as the forest kingdom, is the northern most kingdom in the empire. The mountain range they hide behind adds to the mysterious aura around their kingdom and their people. Arborious is the biggest lumbar producer in the entire empire, along with animal pelts; with the entire kingdom being a massive forest, they are the native home of many larger, more dangerous animals; meaning they have some of the best hunters, trackers and marksmen in the whole kingdom. Queen Amina and King Devon are tight lipped, quiet, and withdrawn rulers. This attitude falls onto their people and even their own children. Although, people remember the King and Queen being more outspoken, before their third child came along. now the entire royal family is as mysterious and quiet as the forest; some have speculated that the youngest royal child was a mistake.
Arborious Royal Children: 3/3 open
The Kingdom of Caelum is also known as the mountain kingdom. Bordering the northern-most kingdom, Caelum is made up entirely of the northern mountain range., making a natural border that tends to seclude the forest kingdom from the rest of the empire. Being mostly known for their precious stone and gem exports, it's unsurprising that the King of Caelum leads his people with a high and mighty attitude. Just like the mountains themselves, the Caelumites believe they are above all else, looking to everyone else like they are nothing; or at least, that they are much lower and less intelligent than themselves. The people of Caelum tend to only befriend others within their kingdrom; if you're seen willingly spending time with others that aren't from Caelum, it was an unspoken rule for you to be shunned out of Caelum. However, with the festival bringing all the kingdoms to one place, will the one, single Royal Child of Caelum stick out like a sore thumb? Or learn to open up to others?
Caelum Royal Children: 1/1 open
The Kingdom of Pluvia, found on the southeastern coast of the empire, makes up the coast along with the scattered island across the bay. The coastal kingdom is most well known for their fish, shrimp and other seafoods, along with other coastal gems such as coconuts, shells, seaweed snacks, and even glass-blown beauties. Having only their Queen and her two children to lead them, Pluvians have adapted a sense of courage and bravery. The people of Pluvia are the ones who set sail on treacherous, stormy seas in order to provide for their families; as a matter of fact, one of these voyages was what took the life of the their King. Knowing the dangers of the sea, Pluvians are a very humble, respectful people, but thrill-seeking, none the least.
Pluvian Royal Children: 2/2 open
