@Mak0 My next Heavenly Prince egg is going to you! I should be able to breed him in a few days, let's hope he's willing ^^

Hi, I just realized I'm out of male influencers :wacko: for my cb Chrono. I precog'd and its going to be female. 

Would anyone be willing to hold my egg on their scroll and influence it to be male until it hatches? The egg has 11 hrs left.

I have room @Oxuna if you want me to influence/hatch him for you :)

@pretty_thumb - I’m pretty sure this was answered, but do princes/princesses from affairs inherit the King’s surname, the Affair’s surname, or...? Just want to double check! ^_^

Since Princes/Princesses are technically that old-timey word for "born out of wedlock", they should take the surname of the Affair. :)

Yep! And actually you'd get +4 total for donating a bred egg under the competition guidelines.

@Mochi ugh my bad, it is only CBs. >.< Sleepy me is bad at things.

 

Also random question but how does everyone feel about pirates? I've been reading about them tons lately and really want to start a pirate RP but I'm not sure if there'd be enough interest - the RP sections seem kind of barebones.

I dunno @pretty_thumb - can we do sexy pirate Duke Devlin? (also known as Gorgeous Green EyesTM)

 

You could do a character inspired by him! ^_^ I'm thinking of it mostly being original characters (with mentionings of historical figures), and I see no reason your character couldn't be based on him as long as it's not straight up plagarism.

Not gonna lie, I'd probably end up just doing a sexy pirate captain with the green eyes. And murderous tendencies. But I don't know too much about pirates tbh, I'm more of a fantasy RP kinda person.

I love. Anything I'd come up with wouldn't be too technical in most aspects (I don't care a bit about describing ships and such). Just a good setting, a plot that allows for battles, pillaging, and a little romance (PG-13 of course) without being too constricting. I might consider adding fantasy elements, though I'm not sure. Pirates are v cool by themselves.

I do love me some marauding. Although, would it be captain v captain battling, or we're one collaborative ship battling?

and by fantasy RP of course, I mean fantasy novel writing haha

I hadn't considered it - I suppose more people might be interested if there are multiple captains/ships? What's your preference?

There are advantages to both, really. Multiple captains and ships (each one run by one person) opens the table for big scale battles and alliances and rivalries, but if we're all collaborating on one ship, it means we can play for smaller scale romances or friendly rivalries or some big quest for our ship and crew Carribean style

If I receive an offspring as a donation, do I have to announce when it hatches or only when there's a marriage?

French titles?

 

Prince/Princesse du sang

Spoiler

Translates to "Prince/Princess of Blood"

"[T]hey were, in theory, all descendants in legitimate male line of a French sovereign outside of the royal family itself" and were "the highest held at court after the immediate family of the king during the ancien régime and the Bourbon Restoration" (source 1,2).

The term dates back to the 14th century and its usage & restrictions (who were considered princes of blood) varied over the centuries and appear to be based off the ruling king's preference. "In the late 15th century, for example, the Bourbons-Carency, the most distant branch of the Bourbon family (extinct 1530), were never invited to take seat in the Conseil du Roi. In the 17th and 18th c., the princes of the blood were only members of the Bourbon family (descended from a son of Louis IX), in spite of the existence of the Courtenay, descended from Louis VI, and the only remaining non-Bourbon line of Capetians" (source 1). 

Sources: (x) (x) (x)

 

Chevalier

Spoiler

The term originally meant "knight," referring to a horse-riding warrior, and came from the Latin word "caballus" (source 1). The title Chevalier was also attached to members of the orders of knighthood It was not originally a French title of nobility and it was not until under Napoleon's rule that it became officially became a full-fledged title of nobility but there are a few examples of its usage as a noble title before Napoleon's rule such as the Liessart branch. Séraphin du Chambge received the titles of chevalier ad personam from Philip IV of Spain on 6 Oct 1662 and received letter from Louis XIV on 1 October 1673 confirming his titles (Source 1). Also interesting "Among nobles, one also distinguished between chevalier and écuyer..  These were not titles, but ranks within the nobility (with some exceptions; see further details). Any nobleman, no matter how recent, was an écuyer, and only noblemen could be styled as such.  Chevaliers (knights) were a subset of the nobility, which included all titled nobility, members of the orders of knighthood of the king, but also members of families of ancient nobility, even untitled" (source 3).

Sources: (x) (x) (x

 

Legit just thought it would be cool to have knights so I included it even though it's not until the 1800s that it's considered a title of nobility.

 

Vidame

Spoiler

A vidame was "one of a class of French feudal temporal officers or advocates who originally represented the abbeys or bishops but later erected their offices into fiefs —used as an hereditary title of nobility which was recognized to the end of the ancien régime" (source 2). "t was more of a feudal title than a noble title, and it only existed in certain parts of northern France. It was a minor title usually conferred by bishops to the administrators of ecclesiastical holdings" (source 1). They were originally appointed officers that exercised powers under the control of a bishop but later became hereditary (a role inherited through members of the family). "the vidame is to the bishop what the viscount is to the count. Their role was to manage and protect the estates of the bishopric, to exercise in his name the episcopal jurisdiction, to represent him at the count's court, to lead the bishop's troups in battle" (source 1). 

Sources: (x) (x)

 

Oh man, finally done. Now I can close my 14 tabs x.x

I think I might have mixed up titles, ranks, & classes. Honestly was not expecting the French nobility to be sooooo confusing/complicated. I was a fool.

There were so many I read but just ended up not including because they were confusing x.x

Also trying to find sources was...I basically just used the same 3. I didn't think it would be so hard o.o

Ooo, a pirate thread sounds fun. I'd participate 

 

I'm kind of leaning towards the second, @Ninjakittee with perhaps expanding later on to involve other groups of pirates. Perhaps maybe start with a small fleet that's captained by a rag-tag pairing involving my cutthroat lass (who I'd imagined as a sort of pirate princess) and your green eyed captain? ;)

Was the offspring donated a lineaged one? If so, it's probably already been announced and you don't need to worry about forms until there's marriage.

I just cackled! XD Yes there are soooo many rankings and I'm still not convinced I understand them fully myself.

 

I LOVE what you've come up with. I'm going to credit you with a total of 10 francs since this is so in-depth. That puts the King's Court at 101 francs, (actually more, but I haven't caught up today) and means a tapestry has been unlocked! :D I may not be able to make the official announcement and changes to the King's Court Hall until tomorrow, though, I'll try and get it out tonight!
