• welcome
    Garden of Bones is a mature, historical fantasy/supernatural board with a few quirks that make it all its own. We thrive on character and plot development, and we love to thread. We're an active, friendly, and sometimes nutty group of people who all came together for one purpose: to have fun with our hobby.

    Our species list consists of humans, vampires, witches, lycans, and therianthropes. However, our vampires don't sparkle and our lycans can only change on the full moon. We've mixed in some traditional lore with some newer stuff and added a twist of our own to each of the species to give them a nice, original twist.

    So if you'd like to be a part of our family, please join with a first, middle, and last name in proper caps. ie: Lisa Jane Smith or Tyler Jacob Parker.

    setting
    JULY - AUGUST
    In the year 216 After the Reaping

    Summer has finally come to Setharos and each kingdom is celebrating it in its own way. Mirarien is enjoying the heat and longer days while Edessi is bemoaning the late sunset and early sunrises. The warmth and rain in Arycan is mixing with the cool breezes from Thelidan, creating fog on the forest floor. Meanwhile Thelidan is enjoying the warmest time of the year, despite there still being parts of the kingdom that have snow.

    FULL MOONS: July 22nd && August 20th

    ratios
    Humans: 7
    Vampires: 15
    Lycans: 8
    Therianthropes: 6
    Witches: 8
    Male: 22
    Female: 22
    Total: 44

  • bounty board
    "A group of bandits have been spotted in the forest just outside of Ceninli Heights. Travelers are asked to stick to the Queen's Road and not stop their carriages for anybody. The city magistrate has released a bounty of 20 gold coins for eliminating the bandits."

    "Evidence of blood magic has been found in Stormroost Valley following the disappearance of three young girls. Although the bodies have been found, the witch managed to flee the scene before the Paladin could confront them. Please be on the lookout for any suspicious individuals but do not engage them at risk of death! Send for the Paladin as soon as possible."

    "A group of defiled slaves from the fighting pits have escaped and are somewhere in Setharos. Anybody with information on their whereabouts will be paid ten silvers. Find Eris Boyd on the outskirts of Dressnoon Parrish regarding the slaves."

    "Due to the coronation of the Arycanian royals, there have been increased sightings of highwaymen on the King's road, as well as groups of wild bandits in the surrounding forests. There will be an increase in guards patrolling the roads, however Gushyell Parrish's magistrate has offered a reward of 30 gold coins for the heads of the bandit leaders."

    "There have been pirate sightings in the waters by the island. Sailors and ship captains should be cautious with their cargo. One ship captain claims that it is the Moonshine, seeking passage towards the Night Port, but the Edessian crown has denied any claims of allowing the cutthroats to find shelter in their kingdom."
