And now that the book is out, we will be making some further updates to “Blood of Dragons 2.0”, for example to...

  • A calendar of IC and OOC events on the game. Also available on the in-game Events board and +Events listing.
  • A collection of Frequently Asked Questions that provides quick access to vital information, whether you are new to MUSHing or just new to Blood of Dragons. It is highly recommended as a starting point if you are checking out the game for the first time.
    Do I need prior MUSHing experience?

    The preference of the Admin is for the players to have at least some prior MUSHing experience. However, Open characters are available to players with no experience at all, provided that they have read at least A Game of Thrones as the game is not setup to cater to players who lack both MUSHing...

Resources

  • In-depth essays and guides on topics such as getting started on the game, creating a good character concept and roleplaying different character concepts. Many are geared towards newbies but everyone, including experienced players, should be familiar with the articles under the Theme section as these deal with the current state of play on the game.
    Character Building

    This article was inspired by David Louis Edelman’s Building Character(s) post at DeepGenre. Though aimed at creating characters for books, several of the ingredients listed as necessary (by Edelman and by other authors in the comments to the post) are equally so when it comes to creating good,...

    Day 20: On the occasion of Jaesin Lannister’s sixteenth nameday, Lord Loreon throws a tourney in his honor. Many great knights and lords entered the tourney in hopes of winning the great prizes. The gold seemed destined to remain with House Lannister, as Jaesin Lannister overthrew every knight he...

    Tensions mount, day by day, and there are those now who fear Prince Marence’s infirmity could very well lead to a violent struggle for the control of Dorne. In the halls of power, the Keepers of Sunspear struggle on, maintaing a tenuous order in the city… and watching disorder grow unchecked...

Characters

  • Application forms for the various types of characters can be found here. Please don't be put off by the word "application"; for Open characters it is a very quick and easy formality.
  • An introduction to the CDB (Character Database) which stores all characters created for the game as well as all information that exists about them. For now, the CDB itself can only be accessed in-game, see +HELP CDB once logged in.
  • A listing of all the houses that are available for play. Each house has a family tree listing all the members of that house and it is from these family trees that the CDB (character database) was put together. The family trees can be used to see where a certain character fits into a family.
  • A gallery of original character art. Player submissions are welcome, as long as you own the copyright of the piece in question or have permission of the copyright holder.
    Elysa Dayne
