Are you a Warrior?  A seamstress?  If so come and tell your characters tale...

Remember what punishments befell us in this world when we ourselves did not cherish learning nor transmit it to other men.

Enter into the past and be a part of living history...come join our group of passionate writers, be a part of something greater then yourself, be a part of either the Saxon's trying to maintain their way of life or the Vikings trying to forge a new way.


Alfred found learning dead, and he restored it. Education neglected, and he revived it. The laws powerless, and he gave them force. The Church debased, and he raised it. The land ravaged by a fearful enemy, from which he delivered it. Alfred's name will live as long as mankind shall respect the past.

Come step into history and tell your characters tale
Viking lore contains the wisdom of a legendary, knowledgeable people, that for most of us, conjure visions of war, raids, adventure, and conquest.  Unholy people of savagery.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

No one will deny they were relentless warriors, and a considerable force to be reckoned with, but sadly the Viking peoples wisdom and wit often go overlooked. Experience breeds knowledge, and these brave souls had no shortage of exploits from which to draw important life lessons.

So come raise your sword with a mighty force and let the truth be told of the Vikings.

Or maybe you feel the courage and strength of the Saxon's is overlooked certainly history hasn't, or should I say lore hasn't depicted them as warriors.  But, they were.

Come join us in telling to tale of your character, explore a part of history and relive it here.

Did you ever wish you could just let yourself get lost in history and feel what it might have been like to be a part of it all?

If you answered yes, then please come join our small group of players and writers as we rewrite history and create the what-if you always wanted.....



For in prosperity a man is often puffed up with pride, whereas tribulations chasten and humble him through suffering and sorrow. In the midst of prosperity the mind is elated, and in prosperity a man forgets himself; in hardship he is forced to reflect on himself, even though he be unwilling. In prosperity a man often destroys the good he has done; amidst difficulties he often repairs what he long since did in the way of wickedness.

Trust not him whose father, brother or other kin you have slain no matter how young he be, for often grows the wolf in the child.
~Volsunga Saga, c.21

Hatred can turn Fenrir the Little pup into the God of Destruction. If you've hurt someone either accidentally or intentionally, be cautious because they might hurt you back. It is not about hatred. It is about your wisdom to carefully protect yourself.

We are still a small group and are looking for players of all skill level.  If you are new and not sure where to go maybe come check us out.

Warriors are not always the fastest or strongest men. Strength and speed can be developed through training. Warriors are those who choose to stand between their enemy and all that he loves or holds sacred.


We are still open for new players.  And we are open to listening to your ideas on a character, nothing is absolute as each player will be able to create their own story and the main one while the overall outcome is our base all things leading to it are open.  We would love more everyday type heroes, the servants, the baker, the wise woman of the village, brew-master, etc. we are looking for all types to create the town/village.

We hope to see you!

So we have openings, their are opportunities for the advantageous so do please check us out and see what madness you can spin!

Control and create your story.  Come and walk into the period of 811 - 820.  Make your character come alive as you place them with either the Norse or the Saxon.  Detail their life and how they navigate the turmoil.


This is a medieval loosely based historical free-form adult RPG. The plot surrounds two Kingdoms one fighting for its right to claim and forge a new life in (and on) new lands and the other trying to keep its control, keep its lands and be free from raids.

The game will focus on the people; the royal family, nobles, military (Knights), and common folks for the Saxons people and the newly crowned Jarl, his warriors, and the Norse people who followed their Jarl to this new land to prosper.  Stories will focus on the period and conflict on various levels from individual conflicts to wars between kingdoms.

In this game, it will chronicle the reign of both the Saxons and and the Norse (Northman), the people surrounding them and the choices they make with the consequences of those choices.


The Rightful Ones, is a twist on history and the what-if's stories as it plays out and the Saxon's eventual collapse to the Norse.

Now prepare yourself for an adventure in history as you begin to write your story!

Come join our deadly game of politics, power, and espionage
Come and get caught up in a deadly game of politics, power, and espionage. Suddenly, simple contracts of marriage can become a deadly happenstance. Strange things are happening on the shores of our Saxon Kingdom, the King is rushing back to his lands, the prince sent to the north to gain favor with a King in the lands we now call Scotland.  The Princess finds herself in a compromised position.  The Jarl is torn in his decision to make peace or move forward and fight.  But his Norse clansmen are coming together and they are ready to defend their newly taken lands to the death if necessary.

As forces for both King Edgar and the Norse Jarl Erland build towards a battle that will decide the future of the world as we know it today, our everyday characters try to survive.

Come and join a world where the politics of rival men vying for control can and will alter the fortunes of nations not yet born.


Fear not death for the hour of your doom is set and none may escape it.

The war of Gods is stirring...a Kingdom holding fast to the new ways another forcing itself upon the lands with the old ways.  Cultures have collided and as our players move IG they are building alliances and forging the future outcome so do not delay come and join us and be a part of the story.

Our Norse lust for a greater prize it is said among the Runes... It is the one prize that can never be lost or stolen.  For the Norse Warrior there is something more valuable than silver. That thing is legacy; for his legacy is the saga that the Viking Warrior or Shieldmaiden leaves behind when he or she dies.

Become a part of the adsorbing world of the early ninth-century.  We have a great leader who is trying to the bridge the differences between the Norse beliefs and the Christians. He has forces planning to stop it before his ideas can even take root.  Our Norse planning their defenses as the Saxons plan to repeal the heathens.  Each step brings us closer to the boiling point, who will make the first move?  Come find out and be apart of the conflict.

Here is a chance to join in on a game that will let you role play the life of your character, and who will it be?  That is up to you.  So is your character an ingenious military strategist, a cunning politician, or a devout believer who endeavors to secure the survival of Christianity in the West.


Or does your character believe in the old ways, the pagan traditions? Will your spiritual force be enough to fight off the looming Western Christendom?  Will the Gods protect our Norse and help them forge these Western lands back to the old Gods but this time under one ruler?  Is our Jarl strong enough to accomplish this goal?

We all have a story tell and this is your chance to share and enter a medieval setting and begin telling yours.

Hoarr the Norsemen who has taken it upon himself to aid in the downfall of the Saxon lordship threatening the new viking settlement. To do this he has stolen the trinkets special to two noblewomen, one princess and the other one of her handmaidens, using these to go about his slow and meticulous molding and breaking of them to the rightful side of the Norse people. To keep and to care for, as his thralls under his roof. Offering the future protection of their families in exchange for this.

I, as Hoarr, along with the player of the noblewoman wish to offer up a place for anyone wishing to take a place in this growing plot. A place for a Saxon woman to see the only way to survive the coming war is to trust in this man and accept this.

We are about to start a new day on 2/1/2020, here is a small recap of the game come check us out:

Saxon's - Funeral and blessings of the graves  will be held in the morning and then from there the Queen is hosting a sort of jubilee, to bring the kingdom together in unity.  There are rumors about the village that a Viking had been captured and is being held, a guard told this person, who told another, and another...  The royal family will be sending a gift -ahem- message to the Vikings so be warned at the Norse camp in the morning hours you will receive this -ahem- gift/message. The King is about a day away from returning with his full forces as his son Prince Olis is securing alliances with another Kingdom.

Norsemen - Your healer, Tam is held captive by morning the news will be known throughout the camp.  A party will be assembled to rescue him.  Fortifications of defensive actions are under way, as is the building of Norse homes, farms are being planned, and more of the clan arrives soon, sons, daughters, friends, loved ones are bound for the shores to make a new home. One Norse has spies in the castle, tracking the Saxon's every move.

We are in need an apprentice blacksmith for the Norse, as we are in need of a female character of either Norse of Saxon blood who is willing to play a servant/thrall as part.  We need a Norse carpenter/boat builder, a seer or anything you wish to try your hand at.

As for the Saxton's - we could use more everyday type characters, farmers, stable-master, groomsmen, Castle staff, King's Council members, lords, or ladies.

There is room for all so do come and join us.

We are still open for new players, if interested PM me and I'd be glad to answer any questions.  As for where we are in game let me give you a little update.

It is still in the morning period and everyone is gathering about on both sides.  We have the Norse gathering to plan a rescue mission and the Saxon's busy getting ready for the services of those who perished in the battle.

Spies are all over the Saxon village of Righteous and though the surfaces appears perfect their are many hairline type cracks within.  The Queen is hoping to unite her fractured people, the King is still a good day away from arrival, though one messenger rode ahead, making it back to alert the royal council that their King is indeed heading back and is making haste in his efforts.  Word is also beginning to get out the Prince Olis has been speaking with another Kingdom trying to secure reinforcements.  Only no one knows but their is a spy within the royal family and this person is feeding it to the Norse.

The Norse camp is planning the rescue of their captive brethren, Tam.  His brother is not inwardly accepting of decisions made and just might go off on his own it appears, his sister, caught between her brother and the Jarl is finding just how hard it is to be Queen.

The game could use a Norse boat builder/carpenter who came over with the settling party.  We could also use wavers, brewers, fishermen, sheep herders, etc.

There is a sub-plot and a female character is being requested for this; more information can be given if you PM.

Saxon's could use groomsmen, Thegns, castle staff, etc.

As the game progresses I just wish players to keep in mind the Saxon's will eventually lose the Kingdom to the Norse.  This doesn't mean all Saxon characters will die or such, I'd never ask a player that and once it happens we will make sure there is a place for your character no matter if it is a Saxon or Norse, or even a Pict, Celt, etc.

Come on in and welcome to Righteous.  A Saxon city not to different then Wessex, but there is a slight difference you see... the game is set in the time period right before before King Alfred the Great reigned Wessex, in this tale the Norse take control of Righteous and as the game proceeds it will slowly take over each of the great cities and untie them under one Norse King.  Come and join the telling of this what if game.

Right now we are coming close to ending the morning period and everyone is gathering about on both sides, still but revelations have been made and discoveries as well.

Spies are milling about the Saxon village of Righteous and though the surfaces appears perfect their are many hairline type cracks within.  The Queen is hoping to unite her fractured people, the King is still a good day away from arrival, though one messenger rode ahead, making it back to alert the royal council that their King is indeed heading back and is making haste in his efforts.  Word is also beginning to get out the Prince Olis has been speaking with another Kingdom trying to secure reinforcements.  Only no one knows but their is a spy within the royal family and this person is feeding it to the Norse.

***We have lost a player and while I was saddened by it I will look back on the characters and remember the player fondly.  With that I figured it was time to dust off this ad and see if maybe some others would be interested in joining.  We are a small group and the pace is neither slow nor fast, I say it is steady.***


******************************************************


Now let me give you a little update on the game as it has been a month since I last refreshed this ad.

It is now the afternoon of the Queen's jubilee and everyone is gathering about on both sides.  We have the Norse gathering to plan a rescue mission and the Saxon's busy getting ready for feasting, drinking, and dancing into the night.

Spies are all over the Saxon village of Righteous and though the surfaces appears perfect their are many hairline type cracks within.  The Queen is hoping to unite her fractured people, the King is still a good day away from arrival, though one messenger rode ahead, making it back to alert the royal council that their King is indeed heading back and is making haste in his efforts.  Word is also beginning to get out the Prince Olis has been speaking with another Kingdom trying to secure reinforcements.  Only no one knows but their is a spy within the royal family and this person is feeding it to the Norse.

The Norse camp is planning the rescue of their captive brethren, Tam.  The Norse spy has received a way in, Tam's older brother has come to accept the new  Vlva's words, a shield maiden has brought her bounty to share in offering to the Goddess Eir.  Both sides are coming to terms with what lies ahead.

The game could use a Norse boat builder/carpenter who came over with the settling party.  We could also use weavers, brewers, fishermen, sheep herders, etc.

There is a sub-plot and a female character is being requested for this; more information can be given if you PM.
