    Planning our 10th Anniversary

    On October 1st this year, Blood of Dragons will have been open for 10 years since its beta opening in 2006. Of course, the game was founded much, much earlier than that and the full opening followed after about a year of beta, but we still consider this to be our anniversary date as it was the...

  • 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.
    What kinds of characters are not allowed and/or discouraged?

    The most important criteria is that characters have to be able to be based in either King’s Landing or Sunspear for the long term. Furthermore, characters have to be able to fit into either court.

    This means that virtually all characters need to be nobles. Smallfolk and merchants are only possible...

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.
    State of Play in Sunspear

    This article covers the current situation in Sunspear, and is intended to give players an idea of what the roleplay there might be like.

  • The Helpfiles wiki covers the information normally found in the NEWS files and is divided across general information (policies, guidelines, getting-started information, etc), system information (descriptions of how various codd systems are used) and thematic information (an overview of key elements of the setting of the game.
  • A gallery of maps, including room-by-room maps over the open areas to help players find their way, as well as other useful images.
  • Logs of meetings, lectures, lessons and other OOC activities.
    The World of Ice and Fire “AMA”

    Following the release of The World of Ice and Fire, we invited players on the game to an “AMA” inspired session of talk about the book.

Roleplay

  • A chronicle of events that include known canon events as well as events invented by the Admin, events in character backgrounds and roleplayed events. This is the most detailed information available for the history of the game and it is an excellent resource for creating character backgrounds.
    161 AC

    Day 11: News of the murder of Lord Lyonel Tyrell in Sandstone, and the accompanying slaughter of his forces, reaches King’s Landing.

    Day 21: Joleta Gargalen is made to marry Ser Ethos Mertyns, at King Daeron’s command. Ser Anders Dondarrion, apparently out of some gallantry, challenged the groom...

  • Logs of roleplay. Players new to MUSHing can get a sense of how roleplay works by looking at the logs and experienced players can get a sense of what the roleplay on the game is like and whether it seems interesting to them. Players can request a login to contribute directly.
    A Point of Tactics
    The king's forces continue their progress up the Boneway, despite the Dornish raids on the line of march. Ser Dalton Florent, tasked with command of a guarding troop of archers and Braavosi crossbowmen, consults with the king and Ser Sarmion after the most recent attack.
  • Important IC news from all over Westeros, covering all major events that the characters learn about. Also available on the in-game Tidings board.
    Broken Lances

    As preparations for the joint force of the Iron Throne’s fleet and the Dornish spears continue unabated, the Planky Town has remained full to bursting of Dornish levies and knights and men-at-arms on the one hand, and northron sailors and lords and soldiers on the other. The great increase in the...

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.
    Dermett Corbray
  • A wiki for profiles of characters and significant groups in King's Landing and Sunspear. It is meant to give a sense of who's who at each court and to provide a way of easily browsing through information about significant characters. Players can request a login to contribute directly.
