I can see this man as a big loving father! An his sharp tongue to keep him out of the lines only makes him ever more so of a funny person. It is truly not his fault that he stumbled into all this trouble. It only happened to him. No wounder Lady Julia is the way she is. Keep going with this one! Go to Comment
The Campaign is comming, search all the various parts and the freetext Magenta Rose to see them all come up. I am adding more slowly and surely.
The Southern Knights could be added to this mix, but they are really a seperate series.
There are five NPCs (King, Consort, Princess I, Princess II, and Elven King (once Prince), two to three related plots (in a series), and maybe some location/ kingdom posts. Go to Comment
That is actually true. The item can be used by itself, building up a world around it and the powerful Elves/ Mythics on their border. Or you can add all the other Magenta Rose submissions together with it, creating a more complex and dramatic situation with an aging king and the courtiers jockying for position OR outright war.

It is close to being totally done actually. I have done enough that you can just plop it down. Follow the links back or go to Court of the Magenta Rose for the summary.
Or you can go back to basis, and ignore the whole Twin Rose Wars plotline, and create a kingdom that backs against the fairy/ elves. It is an old country, but in many ways, it is the frontier against the unknown. There we have a fragile peace between Humanity and The Mythics, all held together by a single rosebush. Go to Comment
I have a soft spot for fauna, I admit it. I like the background and I like the fact that the plant has an unusal function. Good idea and a nice touch that will lend extra wealth to the setting.

I'm glad my simple post was able to bring out more, if not something better, ideas than my own. The duality of Elven and human culture is a wonderful touch. When they thrive the roses bloom, when they war, they wilt. Very interesting touch.
This daily highlight comes from a different time on the citadel. It has core idea which is nice enough. The rose bush is a nice plot idea and could be interesting starting point for some intellectual excursions into how this barometer might work. Does the Rose bush see the future? Does it mystically poll public opinion? Does it track the exchange rate between currencies and trade goods? What is a healthy relationship between Elves and Humans? Does the rose bush take into account the author's disrespect for human culture? If Elven culture begins to dominate human culture is that healthy? Is the Rose bush biased? I don't think the specific answers matter, but the in game exploration could be interesting. This is a good candidate for a 100 word rework. Go to Comment
