Chatterbox: KYNGDOM™

Who’s here?

Who’s here?
Introduce yourself using this format:


You can also print out the official Kyngdom identification form.

I'll start:

NAME: Charlie W.

SPECIES: Human (Homo sapiens)

JOB/TITLE: Sprocketville, Southwest Kyngdom

APPEARANCE: Tall for his age (13), average build, curly dark brown hair always needs a haircut (except right after he gets one)

PERSONALITY: Never the first to speak up, but always the first to notice something

HOME: His parents' house, which his mom likes to say has the most natural light of any underground bunker in Sprocketville, thanks to its many skylights

MOST OFTEN SEEN AT: The machinist wing of the Cypher Labs dormitory, where he lives on a hall with the other gear-nerds. Needless to say it's not the cleanest wing in the building.

FRIEND OR MENTOR: Dr. Sheepshank was the first adult he felt really took him seriously.

ENEMY OR RIVAL: Marcus R., the best machinist at Cypher--and a full year younger than Charlie.

FAVORITE POSSESSION OR OBJECT: His titanium sprocket wrench set, a 13th birthday gift from Dr. Sheepshank.

MOTTO OR FAVORITE SAYING: Er, did you try hitting it with a hammer?

STRENGTHS: Inventiveness--at age 8, he built a working dishwasher from scratch.

WEAKNESSES: Confidence--he has trouble standing up for himself sometimes.

BACKGROUND: Charlie grew up in Sprocketville, a small bunker town in Southwest Kyngdom. He was lonely there, since there weren't many other kids around--but that gave him plenty of time to tinker with the smashed-up machines that lined all the roads in town. After he built an entirely new set of household appliances from scratch, word spread across Kyngdom. Eventually, Dr. Sheepshank recruited him to be part of the Cypher Labs team. His parents were sad to see him go, but he didn't think twice: this was his big break.

NAME: Cornelia Hornshaw

SPECIES: human (Homo sapiens)

JOB/TITLE: President, the Brazen Inquiry Guild; Board of Directors, the Royal Zoological Association; Ph.D. in Zoologeneering, Hogbottom University; M.A. in Cog-and-Gear-Craft, the College of Pflimz, Lady of Hornshaw Manor

APPEARANCE: At B.I.G. headquarters, she wears a white lab coat that, no matter how freshly laundered, is likely smudged with grease and chocolate. At official events, she favors high fashion with lots of furs.

PERSONALITY: Cornelia is passionate about the importance of mentoring the next generation of brilliant young scientists--until it interferes with her time in the lab. Able to focus for hours on a scientific theory or mechanical problem, Cornelia quickly loses patience with humans. (She’s even worse with animals.) 

HOME: Hornshaw Manor, the once-decrepit ancestral home of the Lords Hornshaw, which Cornelia has devoted herself to refurbishing in style

MOST OFTEN SEEN AT: B.I.G. headquarters, haranguing subordinates or fiddling with her latest clockwork invention

FRIEND OR MENTOR: Cornelia’s papa, the old Lord Hornshaw, an explorer, gentleman scientist, and the world’s foremost expert on agricultural uses of grubs

ENEMY OR RIVAL: Professor Sheepshank. Also, the head of laundry at B.I.G. HQ, who has so far failed to get chocolate sauce out of Cornelia’s favorite ermine muff.

FAVORITE POSSESSIONS: When she was a girl, Cornelia built a clockwork chocolate fountain that took first prize at Hornshaw Prep’s science fair.

MOTTO: salvare dominante

STRENGTHS: Creating clockwork machines that perfectly mimic animal bone structure and musculature. Metalworking. Also a solid shot with a hunting rifle.

WEAKNESSES: Fur coats. Chocolate truffles. The smell of mildew.

BACKGROUND: Centuries ago, the Lords and Ladies Hornshaw were some of the most powerful in the region. But by the time Cornelia was born, the family had fallen into hard financial times. Cornelia is dead set on following in the footsteps of her father, one of the most brilliant scientists of his generation—and on making a fortune along the way.

Ooh, Admins! Idea! Maybe the Hornshaws used to be the Pur Hornshaws, a Nobyl family (see OtR's posts about her character Saralayah). But something happened: they lost much of their wealth and power and another family has long since replaced them as Nobyl. Cornelia wants to make her family Nobyl I allowed to suggest modifications to an Admin character based on an idea that isn't even mine?

It's OK to make whatever suggestions you'd like, but be sure to give the correct credit for any ideas that aren't your own (as you did in the above reference to OtR).

Hey! Admin #2 here—thanks for the smart suggestion—we'll definitely take this into consideration.

I had the same question! So apparently you create a character and add to the story. It's pretty cool. Even I got the hang of it eventually, and I'm a wolf. Do you have ANY idea how hard it is to type with these paws? IT HAS TAKEN ME HOURS JUST TO TYPE THIS. AAAUUUUUGGGGH!
