  3. House Flay “Blood for Coin!” House History Following his return after 20 years of exile, August Flay - Lord of House Flay - reformed his renowned household with the blessing of the Emperor Godfrey in the Holy Oren Empire. Unfortunately for him, much had changed in the decades of his disappearance, and the paramountcy he once enjoyed in Oren politics was a thing of the past. New powers ruled in Oren. Unwilling to face the fact that his power had long since waned, August Flay allied himself with the Teutonic Order and challenged the Order of the White Rose; a grievous error on his part. Having not given himself enough time to gather his strength, House Flay was dealt a decisive defeat by the numerically superior Roses and their allies, and to all those in Oren and outside - appeared to have been shattered completely. Indeed it seemed this way in the aftermath. In his rage and denial, August Flay removed dozens of men from his service, murdered loyal subordinates, and began plotting his return to power. He hired sellswords, he gathered vassal houses. Most importantly, he sent a request to the Emperor. A change of his name, from the infamous Flay to the newly coined Blackmont. In this, August hoped to start anew, establish a new identity for himself and his men in the Empire. Having gathered what men he deemed loyal and fit, the first Lord Blackmont began plotting and planning, intent on retaking what he once held. In an effort to consolidate his position, Lord Augustus I hammered out alliances and took on new vassals, becoming liege to the Houses Carrion, Woods, Letholdus, and Greymane. Upon his arrival to the land of Anthos with his personal army, Lord Blackmont moved quickly to establish a new base of operations and wasted no time in resuming his activities of intimidation and terror. Peace never did last long when Lord Augustus Blackmont was involved. In a bid for more power and additional land, he declared formal war upon the Teutonic Order, relying on his terror tactics and superior numbers - albeit inferior organization. Additionally, a son was born to him by his wife, Lorin Chivay, the son that Augustus had prayed for for so many decades. With this new heir, Tiberius, born, Augustus groomed him from the beginning - so that he could properly assume control of House Blackmont upon his own death. With tensions only increasing along with open conflict in north, battle lines were drawn as different noble houses decided who they were to fight alongside. At full strength and readily mobilized for war, House Blackmont geared itself to fight any that they deemed necessary in order to advance in status and power. With the help of House Blackmont's allies, a siege upon the Dreadfort was broken and the Teutonic Order forced into retreat. In his final days, Augustus lived to see the day that the Order was officially disbanded, before finally dying in his bed, alongside his most trusted followers. Shortly thereafter, his eldest son, Tiberius, was named his successor. Though he held much resentment towards his father for his harsh and peculiar upbringing, he quickly took the reigns in House Blackmont as Lord Tiberius Blackmont II. In an event known by many as the 'Crimson Banquet,' Tiberius arranged a feast to celebrate his own rule over House Blackmont. Here, as a toast was declared in his honour, he was poisoned and died instantly. In the subsequent confusion, accusations were thrown between the Bannerman and a brawl quickly ensued. In the chaos, the Dreadfort was set alight and the surviving Bannerman forced to seek a new home from the Emperor. Under the new Lordship of Augustus's youngest son, Lucius, they rebuilt the Dreadfort close to Oren's capital, where they intended to restore the House to its former glory. Lucius Blackmont and his men drop to their knees as they reach the throne, they guards lower their head in respect as Lucius speak out "Your Imperial Majesty". Horen looks over to Lucius nodding at him as he speaks "Aye, Lord Justiciar?". Lucius and his men rise from kneeling as he clears his throat and begins to speak "I have a request for you, I wish to retain our old name. The name that broke fear into so many hearts, the name we are still called today. I wish for myself and my family to be called House Flay." He darts his eyes to Horen then to the men around the throne with him, a small bead of sweat falling from his forehead as he waits nervously. Horen shifts in his throne before he speaks out "Very well then Lord Justiciar, you have my blessing." Lucius smiles and places his hands behind his back, gripping his two hands together. "That is all Your Imperial Majesty" He gives a slight bow of his head as he spins on his heels and marches out of the Palace, two Man of Arms quickly following after him by his side. Customs The most noticeable feature about House Flay is its practice of skinning its enemies alive, and in some cases dead. Soldiers hang trophies of these skins, from any and all races and allegiances, as a show of glory. These sometimes full body husks of rotting flesh are seen as a sign of military merit in the House, and the more a soldier has on his wall, the more respected and prone for bonuses. Within the upper echelons of House Flay, many shroud their more devious nature, utilising a silver tongued wit to escape the most dangerous encounters. Though soldiers of House Flay are known for their ruthless appetites, over the years, they have further learnt to appreciate the importance of subtlety and deception. Goals The men of House Flay have but one will, that of their leader - the Lord of Flay. What he has in priority is known only to him truly, but the household and those who lead it have always been known to have an affinity for chaos and corruption. Their lust for power is unparalleled in the Empire, and their brutality is not matched by any other force that serves the Emperor. Responsibilities Becoming a soldier for House Flay is taxing both physically and mentally. Tasks often are of a violent and immoral nature, including but not exclusive to: intimidation, robbery, murder and torture. Nothing is off limits to a Flay man, if he knows what is best for him. Ranks Base Ranks Lord of Flay: The head of HouseFlay, to be held by the eldest male relative to the previous holder of the title when deceased or deposed Captain of the Guard: Charged with the responsibility to lead soldiers into battle, this position is coveted as one to be held by only the most zealous, efficient, and cruel of Flay’s retainers.

This rank is achieved upon completing the initiation process of flaying one's enemy. Unblooded: By no means kind or of compassionate disposition, unblooded men don the same uniform as the rest of the rank, but are simply noted to not have taken the final step to becoming a man of the Dreadfort.

Those who wish to join the men of Flay and become true sons of the Dreadfort are required to send a letter - written by another if unable to read nor write - stating their intention to join while making it fully aware that said applicant understands the implications of joining. ((Send me a PM through the forums, after posting on the thread, role playing that you have sent the letter.)) The letter should contain the following format.
  4. I've been in many situations where ive RP fought Patriotic. They are probably the best RP fights ive ever been in and tbh I don't enjoy most RP fights. I've not been metagamed, powergamed and haven't had any OOC issues. So I say +1 to him being an actor.
  5. Freya if you could contact Pheonixpro1 I could help you out. The Dreadfort was destroyed by its own men funnily enough and was left in ruins. For some reason it was world edited away and now just a small piece of land.
  6. Yes the Dreadfort which is an exact copy is behind the Lion keep in Abresi, feel free to come take a peek.
  7. As one of the people who built the Dreadfort on LotC (Not my design, credit goes to Hobolympic) I would very much like to see some ruins. It would be cool if the architecture would be used in a ruined fashion, instead of placing random blocks that where never in the Dreadfort. Thats if Tornado and his fellow Sariants want it however ;p
  8. I don't really mind races being buffed but come on Dwarves and Orcs doing the most damages with swords and bows? That is completely unfair and id say powergaming. How is that Elves get the worse buffs, everyone else is better with bows.
  9. The buff was added the day of the battle. I remember fighting a Dwarf doing 1 heart to me with his fists, or it was here all along and we just put two and two together.
  10. This is true. What I fail to understand is that humans do more damage with a bow than elves and elves do more damage with a sword than humans. What is even going on? I understand Orcs are supposed to be strong and powerful but sneaking this in without a topic makes it look like it was implemented for the War, to well beat Oren. P.S Dwarves also have the same damage as Orcs.
  11. People have a greed for others possessions IRL. Why should a player be OOCly spat on for RPing his character properly?
  12. Not upset in any way? Why do you have to act like I am.
  13. The topic says it all really. I feel it would be better if buddylists could have upgraded slots. 10 people isn't enough, 30 seems reasonable.
