Rules & Info

Maerish canons do not come with activity requirements. They do come with a heightened responsibility - be sure you want to stick around before taking up a canon!

There is a one canon per category per player rule, to encourage people playing with each other, and not themselves.

Our canons are purposely kept short to give the player maximum control over the character. You have absolute freedom regarding your play-by and anything that is not explicitly mentioned in a canon's description including age, species, gender identity and orientation, alignment, history, etc. You may also give them middle names. You can also absolutely create additional family members to the noble families below!

Making an lgb+ canon straight, a trans canon cis or whitewashing a canon is not permitted.

Some canons are marked with "Extra Content". This means that this character has a secret, or there is unknown information about this character. You will receive this information via pm after taking up a canon, after which you can still decide to turn the canon down.

To take up a canon, reply to this topic with the following form:

[Username]: [Header (eg Knight's county, Banwalt's leaders)] - [Canon name]

You then have two weeks to complete your application before losing your reserve.

An amab boy and youngest crowned ruler of Harlant, King Alwegen is a much discussed monarch in all of Grova.

30's // Human // They/Them
A non-binary person and second oldest ruler of Harlant, Rex Ebenweltic is the calm presence that keeps the balance of the kingdom.
