// P L O T //


1662-47: Johann Philipp von Schönborn was elected prince-bishop of Würzburg and archbishop-elector of Mainz. Praised as “the Wise” and the “German Solomon”, Johann begun the revered “Schönbornzeit era” popularly recalled as the age of prosperity.
Under the leadership of Johann von Schönborn, a minor German nobility was raised to become one of the most prominent powers of the Holy Roman Empire, second only to the royal family and the authority of the Emperor himself.
1717: the Schönborn Family was split into two lines- the Schönborn-Heusenstamm and the Schönborn-Wiesentheid.
The Schönborn-Wiesentheid line became powerful Archdukes under the reign of Maria Theresa and retained their traditional control over the Southern German provinces, Bavaria and various provinces of Central Europe.
Schönborn-Heusenstamm line chose a different fate. Seeing potential in a young Russian prince, they sponsored his travels and stay to Vienna and London. He would go on to become Peter the Great, the founder of the Romanov Dynasty of Russia. He would offer them his aid and protection, giving them refuge and an esteemed position in his court.
1776: The British Empire looses the American war of independence
1789: The French Revolution changed the fate of the entire continent, creating an atmosphere of fear and insecurity among the European nobility. No empire or monarch was spared.
1815: The treaty at the Congress of Vienna declared the end of the Napoelonic wars. The face of Europe had changed entirely.
1778-1830: Prince Nikolai Yusupov served as a senator, diplomat, Actual Civil Councillor, Minister of State Properties, a member of the Council of State and Director of Imperial Theatres, (under Catherine the Great, Paul I and Alexander I), director of the Hermitage, the Kremlin Armoury, and the state porcelain and glass factories.
A patron of the arts and a keen traveler, he spoke five languages and corresponded with Voltaire. As a diplomat, Prince Nikolai travelled throughout Europe, to France and Versailles, where he met Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, to Germany and Prussia, where he met Frederick the Great, to Austria, where he met Emperor Joseph II, and to Italy. During his journey he purchased a large collection of art for the tsar, acting as a mediator between the tsars and European artists.
1814-30: Bourbon Restoration under Louis XVII and Charles X.
1848: The Hapsburg Empire began to crumble, experiencing uprisings in every major city.
1839-60: The Opium Wars in China allow British/American interests to enter East Asia, leading to the expansion of colonial and imperial interests.
1865: American Civil War comes to an end
1871: Paris Commune threatens the monarchs and empires of Europe and the world, signaling the fall of the Bourbons once again
Germany officially breaks off from the Hapsburg Empire, establishing its own sovereign country

1904: Japan defeats Russia in the Russo-Japanese War
1914: The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand results in World War 1
1917: The Russian Revolution begins, leading to a large number of nobility and royalists to emigrate to other European countries
1918: The Treaty of Versailles is signed, officially marking the fall of the Hapsburg and Romanov Empires.
1939-45: World War 2
1954-91: The Cold War
---- x -----
Welcome to 2017.
After a series of “salon diplomacy”, royalists are back in Europe, advocating for their restoration in France, Austria and Russia in particular. With marriage and trade alliances, they have unified their interests together along with other people that share their sentiments under Baroness Valeria Schönborn- Yusupov and her husband Vincent Schönborn- Yusupov (nee Jaeger).
Their sentiments are opposed passionately by the Wiesentheid Collective comprising of democrats, communists and all those who oppose the royalist restoration across Europe and have quite a popular following across the continent for fairly obvious reasons.
Today, this disagreement is no longer isolated to the saloons and bars of infamous socialites. It affects the entire globe and as a result of this, the situation has become far too intense, especially after Baroness Valeria’s rejection of Victor Bennett’s marriage proposal, antagonizing the situation even further. Therefore, no one is spared anymore, especially not the children.
And on that note, welcome to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Nestled away in expansive stretches of thick forests lies the port city of Yarmouth. With a rich maritime culture, Yarmouth is known to be one of the largest Lobster capitals of the world. But despite that, it does have its own charms. It really does grow on you.
But Yarmouth's greatest selling point aren't its delicious lobsters. It's privacy- absolute privacy. Due to various "accidents", Europe may be culturally overwhelming and superior, but it is no longer safe. Far too many "coincidences" have happened. As a result of that, the children are usually sent away to Yarmouth for safety where they are declared non-combatants officially. Any attempt on their lives in Yarmouth is a direct deceleration of war- a risk no one is willing to take.
Therefore, Yarmouth offers safety and privacy like no other place on the Western Hemisphere could hope to do. And here, there are no divides- just a selection of bored, youthful individuals who really have far too much energy and time on their hands.

Somewhere far out, far, far, far out of your league lies a universe so opulent only few inhabit its glory.
❀ LYLA - Grandmother, matriarch of the dynasty, elegant, wealthiest, proud of her girls, the fun nun, generous
// At the opera, in pearls, making people fall at her feet while drinking champagne and pretending not to notice
✧ BRETAN - 2nd daughter, wild aunt, Dior girl, royal, queen of dragging biches, well-educated
// Drinking too much tequila and having too much fun doing things you would regret but she'll probably forget
☼ SUMMER - 1st daughter, questionable mother, adventurous, actress, flirtatious, effortless, cultured
// Looking better than everyone else on the beach in nothing but bare feet, sun-tan, gold hair and a sundress
♕ NADIRA - 1st granddaughter, vain, outspoken, knowledgeable, golden (proud owner of an Ulyana coat worth a small fortune)
// Buying out Barneys' New York from her phone on a plane to Singapore and simultaneously ruining some girl's social life
✯ ANNIE - 2nd granddaughter, artistic, sophisticated, sweet af, classic, courteous
// Sipping wine on a Parisian balcony in a silk dress some years in the future
In a modern world filled with glamour and scandal, Lyla, a world renowned fashion mogul and heiress gathered her family for a reunion. This small, but extravagant bunch found themselves back together under one roof. The first to walk through the gates of her mother's palace is Bretan. Dressed head-to-toe in... Dior of course, she had just finished shooting her latest campaign. She played a runaway bride in Miss Dior's latest commercial, if you're up to date that is. The next (last... I guess) to walk through the door is Lyla's other daughter, Summer, and Summer's two daughters whom she adopted when she was going through an Angelina Jolie type phase. Her eldest daughter, Nadira, was looking at her reflection in a (golden) spoon that was sitting on the dinner table. Some /most/ would call her vain a trait contrast to her younger sister, Annie. Annie wasn't as up front as Nadira, but she didn't need to be, she was just accepted into one of the most elite ballet schools in the world.
LYLA: "Colder than December, my diamonds on Anna Wintour." / Ice Princess - Azealia Banks
BRETAN: "Sunglasses and Advil, last night was mad real." / No Church In The Wild - Kanye West ft. Jay-Z
SUMMER: "Flirting with a cool French dude named Antoine." / 1991 - Azealia Banks
NADIRA: "These Chanel bags is a bad habit." / Feelin' Myself - Nicki Minaj
ANNIE: "Knowing you, weekend in Miami, tryna study by the pool." / Make Me Proud - Drake




You think politicians and elected governors are the ones who run the governments? Royal houses and states ruled by the sovereign monarchs and dictators? That couldn't be any further from the truth.

Since ancient ages, specially since the middle ages onwards banking overwhelmed the powers of Europe and took over the economy of all kingdoms, empires and nations. Mighty bloodlines and dynasties emerged, consolidating themselves with formidable professions rather than owners of trinket shops, merchant and market stand owners. With banking many bloodlines such as the Rothschilds and Medicis gained a lot of power, prominence and influence, banking was the first step to control the state, and as it was said; "Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who writes the laws".

And so it was, that this people became the elite of the world, they stablished themselves into their business with a simple inheritance or trinkets and soon forced their way up with power and influence until overshadowing the crowned monarchs and sashed rulers. Their overwhelming wealth and power was the first traces of modern slavery, the controlled monarchs kept them as public favourites to keep them on their good side, having more power than the crown bearers themselves. Other dynasties made their way trough fierce fights, ruling their own lands, not allowing interventions, crime syndicates and much more...

As the time passed they expanded into more than their original branches; banking, resource extracting, fabrics, workshops, exports, imports, farming, stocking, warfare; practically controlling all types of economical activities, holding the absolute control of the world together...

And it was not secret that they created, financed and stopped global conflicts against each other such as the seven year wars, the eleven years war, the napoleonic wars, the russo-turkish wars, the balkan wars, world wars, russian revolution, french revolution, italian republic, spanish holy inquisitions, the crusades, the colonisation of Africa, America, Asia and Oceania. This families simply controlled governments, empires, kingdoms and nations, they created them and destroyed them, brought entire societies and powers to their knees and dried them of resources and man-power, leaving territories in the verge of civil wars, simply doing a light move of their fingers, being pure ruthless and bold when it came to their survival and expansion.

You must keep it classy, and hold drama within role-play, at any problem with other member please contact a mode to sort things out.

Explicit content within role-play is not a requirement, but is neither frowned upon, it's up the people role-playing as long all they feel comfortable, and preferably keep your explicit business within private sets and stories.

ACTIVITY IS CRUCIAL, if you are not going to be active for a certain time, please notify the mods, as well, if you do reserve/audition and you don't even take part in rpg's you will be banned, as commitment is the most important thing within the group. It is required to at least submit a set for rpg or a story by week.

Role-playing games are optional, stories are welcomed and highly encouraged, however it's rule to submit at least a story or two sets by week into the group, or at least when there's a group set.

You must finish your auditions with all of the requisites complete, there are no exceptions and no tolerance at all to members who don't finish and go ahead to role-play, it does not to bee extensive and detailed, however it's advised to make it grow and keep it nice, starting from the basics.

This HFRP-based, if it's not on the runway it's not on the group, end of story, face claims must be at least respected faces of industries, therefore no nickelodeon, disney or sitemodels are allowed. Same thing with clothes, on polyvore money isn't a problem, therefore only luxury brands and couture are welcomed. (No sitemodels, nickelodeon, 1d, bieber, disney, teenyboppers, mtv, series, etc... actors and singers are allowed, however the more respecter and 'high fashion' the better)

Godmoding is forbidden in any kind, as well making everything in role-play about your family, there's others who have worked hard on their people and audition and have power too, if you wish for your family to be the most powerful and the only one, then go write your own stories, do not join this group.

The club takes place mostly around historical, political and internally dramatic events, if you can't meet this ends of opulent and conceptual standards, this is not your place. Your audition must have the 'elite factor' that involved regality, political and historical means to have it, if it doesn't, you won't be accepted.

The club contains many sensitive topics such as different views of politics and religion, a lot of relations to historical events and different points of views of the, conspiracy theories, references to sex, suicide, drugs, murder, dead, war, bullying, abuse pédophilia, illnesses and so on, if you can't handle that or if you are easily offended, do not join.

You MUST plot with others and ensure you do not isolate yourself from role-play at all, if you can't do this or all relations are between your family- you change that or leave.

If you are not sure if you will actually role-play and take part, DO NOT WASTE OUR TIME AND YOURS, it's pointless to waste time upon trying to audition and give more work to mods and other members if you will not even take part.

If you are going to leave or quit, please notify a mod, preferably with reasons, in order to take down your reservations and face claims.

After every season ends, the members are given the choice to stay for the next complete season or quit and leave.

If you do join, it's because you've shown interest in the club and practically vowed to be active, too much effort has been placed into this group for members to come, reserve and make work to everyone, causing nothing but waste of time, if you are unsure of your activity and participation, DO NOT JOIN, we do not want people wasting other's time and effort, we don't want people to ditch after a set or even after reserving.

Any further questions? Contact a mod.

Flaunt Your Style

Flaunt Your Style

Display (something) flamboyantly, in order to provoke desire or admiration or to demonstrate defiance.
display – show off – parade
Here at ‘Flaunt Your Style,’ you can show the Polyvore and fashion community what your true style is. Remembering, there is no other person like you and no person is identical in every like and dislike in their fashionable choices. Therefore, we strongly encourage that there is no copying of outfits to prevent arguments. We’re a friendly and close environment, this can’t be broken because ‘fashionistas’ must stick together, through thick and thin.
Everybody’s style is unique and the vital purpose of this group is to express your creativity and good eye for fashion to other style-goers.
