Marsilikos - Under the Wings of Angels explores a parallel history based on the Kushiel Legacy series by Jacqueline Carey, set in a late medieval, early renaissance era. In the land of Terre d'Ange, where members of nobility are descendants of Elua and other Angels that roamed the lands long time ago, there are intrigues evolving around the royal court, and diversions provided by the Night Court where courtesans cater to a wide variety of tastes and preferences.
Unlike other games of the theme, play focuses on the ducal court at the capital of the province of Eisande, shifting the viewpoint of general politics to more local interests and intrigues. The majority of nobles to be encountered will be of Eisandine families, courtesans of local salons and commoners with business to be in Marsilikos, of course!
Marsilikos is a port town, with a modest foreign influx as well as a potential for sea-related adventures and plots. Meanwhile, the Royal Court is still active in the City of Elua, the politics of which may affect the characters of Eisande this way or the other.
Our goal is to provide a friendly environment for plot driven RP, encouraging players to develop their own storylines in cooperation with staff.
The game is running on PennMUSH 1.8.6p2 and uses Faraday's FS3 skill and combat system, second edition. After tinkering for a few months, we are now in open beta and have already a few players.
