 ♛  Trackers & Timelines
Some of us are sticklers for a good timeline! We find that keeping track of when specific events occur as they happen can greatly aid in planning and plotting in the future. Each time we move time forward, the site timeline topic will be updated - you can always use this as a general reference when reading up on specific characters and their antics.

Do you have a character you would like someone else to play - a long lost love, an overbearing mother, a greedy cousin set to inherit your character's wealth? Whatever the case may be, post a request within this forum, and hopefully someone will take you up on your offer.

 ♛  Character Development
Character development beyond the character profile can be highly beneficial, especially when you really want to dig down deep into the subconscious that is your character's innate being. All information here is for your own personal reference, and is completely optional.

 ♛  The Written Word
If your character can read and write, this would be where all those little tidbits are stored. Diaries and journals can give a unique insight into the head of your character, while letters sent and received can be awesome in getting to know someone (especially in secret). Notes, articles, calling cards - anything that can be written, or hold notes by your character, can be posted within.

 ♛  Common Knowledge
Geared more toward the social aspect of court and london life, this forum serves mostly as a sort of reference to vicious gossip, scathing rumors, outrageous pamphlets in circulation, dry articles from the london times, and updates on what the celebrities (i.e. royals) of the time are doing. Life isn't easy in the political and social circles! You can also find more specific information about the current fashions, weather, and other social events of the season.

 ♛  Parliament Is In Session
Each and every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, Parliament is in session. All those who are politicians in the House of Commons and those who hold aristocratic titles are required to attend Parliament at Westminster Palace from 3:45pm until 7pm, or otherwise arrange for someone else to attend for them. Heated debates, long monologues, and occasional voting are the typical expectations of a day in Parliament, as well as an aching back from hard, rigid wooden pews.

 ♛  Night at the Theatre
Frdiay, 19 April 1811, The Royal Opera house. With the doors opening at 6pm, and the opera starting closer to 7, lasting well until 10:30pm. All guests must have formal attire, and are advised to bring quizzing glasses, the better to see the performance and spy on other theatre-goers.

Rub elbows and gawk at the fabulously wealthy and socially prestigious ton as everyone flocks to the Royal Opera House for a night of theatre fun. Watch George Handel's Italian opera, Deidamia, several musical performances of up-and-coming musicians between acts, a performance by acrobats, and a finale of Pizarro, a romantic comedy sure to soften any stony heart.

 ♛  Ball at Almack's
Wednesday 10 April, 1811, Almack's Assembly Rooms. The ball starts at 8pm, doors closing at 11pm, lasting until well after 1am. All guests must wear formal evening attire or be turned away at the door.

Every Wednesday, the Patronesses of Almack's Assembly Rooms come together and throw the most elite parties in all of London. Just to be invited is considered a grand accomplishment among social circles, and the Patronesses are ruthless with their decisions. A single minor miss-step can get you easily banned from Almack's, and with it, all of the upper ranks of polite society. Only the cream of the crop stay, and only the fashionable remain - though anyone can test the waters with enough money.
