Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere,
I've looked at clouds that way.

But now they only block the sun,
They rain and they snow on everyone
So many things I would have done,
But clouds got in my way.

I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all
  -Joni Mitchell, "Both Sides Now"

It was a long time ago that my people, the Nunnehi, sung of Summer Country. A kingdom, rich, fresh and sweet with dreams and full of glamour. A time when anything was possible and there was peace throughout the lands. We shared a sacred bond with some of the others out there, our allies amongst us, the shifters; brothers Wendigo, Croatan and Uktena. Our families, people and tribes were strong then and times were good...though things were not always to last and soon did times change. The foreigners came to our lands across the Great Seas with their diseases and lies.

They poisoned the lands and brought with them the cold harsh winter of banality and forced upon us their beliefs and strange ways. That was the time when the great storm came to pass throughout the Dreaming and the horrid things of Nightmares came into being, striking across the lands in suffocation and threatening our very lives. It was only the time of the great sacrifice that held the monsters at bay and our friends along with much of our family were lost. Now...now the Kingdom has a new name. A different time to come as the Seelie courts of the Sidhe try to take firm hold over the area, freeholds within, and around, attempting to enforce their regime and standards upon all who live within.

Now is the time for the setting sun and so the kingdom was given root: Kingdom of the Setting Sun for its different times and grasping what was left of the glamour left within the city. Changelings around and alike fight for the dreams that mankind has left to hold back the bitter tides of Winter, some fight the harsh restrictions and politics of the courts while others simply try to survive the banality that eats away at our Fae selves every night and day. These...are different times my friend, though there lie ahead many paths to choose from here.

Rules and Systems

Escheat and Introductions

While the County of Lion's Reach has a NPC Countess, the interpretation and enforcement of the Escheat has been left to the various Barons and Baronesses that rule over the various parts of the County. Laws are laws for a reason, but it is entirely possible that the punishment for any given offense might vary immensely depending on who hands the verdict out.

Newcomers to the County would do well to introduce themselves to one or more of the ruling Barons and Baronesses in the region, though they may very well have vastly differing expectations of said newcomers.
  • Baron Lonne ap Fiona, presently holding the former County seat, CAN be reached by missive (@mail), but generally prefers that newcomers just stop by the Sideshow or the Grove of Tethys and say hi; a 'formal audience' is likely to be anything but formal, and Baron Lonne generally does not require anyone to make any oaths of fealty or citizenship; the Satyr Baron firmly maintains that loyalty and respect should be earned, not taken for granted by sheer virtue of having a title.

Area

PCs who choose to be members of a County or Barony recognize the authority of its leaders, and agree to follow the terms of the Escheat as interpreted by them or accept the consequences for breaking faith.
