New Historical Medieval RP - NOT Fantasy! Lightbridge RP

Recommended Posts

Welcome to Lightbridge, a new historical medieval rp sim!  If you enjoy the Tudor Era, this may be for you!

The sim is set in English-controlled France near Calais on the cusp of the year 1529.  The fictional city of Pont de Lumière (Anglicized to "Lightbridge") is a secondary port to Calais, one of several garrisons providing defense to Calais.  Calais is an important nexus of trade and diplomacy at this time, having hosted the infamous Field of Cloth and Gold in 1520, strengthening ties between Henry VIII and Francis I of France, as well as another treaty between Henry VIII, and Charles V, the Holy Roman Emperor in the nearby city of Gravelines.

What makes us special? We’ve done a good bit of research into English-Controlled Calais and we’ve picked a time and space that are unlike anything else in the SL rp community. RL events of the time will affect our roleplay, including the many RL feast days scattered throughout the year. And although our focus isn’t on physical combat, our combat dice bonus system is also designed to reduce the absurdities of dice play.

Sound interesting?  Visit our website, Lightbridge RP,and learn more about us!  Or visit us inworld.  We are happy to answer any questions.  IM Cristalle Karami or Scarlet Quercus.

We are especially looking for a Mayor, a Captain for the garrison, soldiers (noble or not), merchants, and tradesmen.  

I'll state it plainly - without a Mayor or Captain, Baron Lightbridge is going to have his nose in everything.  Yes, his duties as Treasurer of Calais keep him in Calais most days, but that won't stop him from trying to rule over things when he comes home.  While he's certainly able, too much power resting in the hands of one man is not ideal, and the longer he has his way unopposed, the harder it will be to wrest that authority away from him.

Do you have what it takes to accept the King's appointment and step into a role of authority?  Do you enjoy history or would find a non-fantasy medieval sim refreshing?  Then Lightbridge may be for you.

We've managed to staff our main positions but we are looking for more players.  We need our business owners - the blacksmith, apothecary, seamstress, baker, and physician.  We could also use some soldiers, and some clergy, as well as regular residents.  So far we've got a small but talented group of players with great prose.  Come in and see :)
