Once you've read our rules, are up to date with the plot, and have fleshed out a basic concept for a character in your head, your next stop: character creation! You can find the current character application right here, with the option to post a work-in-progress app, or to do so only after you've completed the whole thing. We also offer a free-form app as well as a questionnaire and a traditional version! All app styles come in a bbcode and a dohtml version.

If you have a specific character you want made, whether it's a detailed idea or just a general concept, post that request here! This is also where you can find our canon list, full of characters from the novels of Jane Austen. Keep in mind: PBs are first come, first serve with no reserves for requested characters (except for canons!), so try to be flexible with your general appearance preferences.

No New Posts Development Tools
It often behooves us to take the time and get a little organized! Inside, you can create your own tracker, post character timelines of events, or even do a little digging into your character's mind and life in order to flesh them out more. If you're really feeling adventurous and up for the challenge, we highly suggest that you check out our Character Challenge sections, as well!

No New Posts Matchmaker, Matchmaker
An excellent option when you have an unmarried character looking for a prospective spouse - especially when you can't seem to find anyone desirable (or deserving) in your own hometown! Our matchmaking system will pair individuals together based on a system that includes class, wealth, and personal preferences, allowing characters to immediately enter an exclusive courtship, even when never formally introduced before. If all things work out, the couple will soon be engaged and married!

No New Posts 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, poetry - anything that can be written from your character's point of view can be posted within.

No New Posts Current Events
Geared more toward the social aspect of town life, this forum serves mostly as a sort of reference to vicious gossip, scathing rumors, outrageous pamphlets in circulation, dry articles from the local newspaper, and updates on what the celebrities (i.e. royals and nobles) of the time are doing. Life isn't easy - but it certainly can be entertaining! You can also find more specific information about the outcome of social events, and even create/spread rumors about your rivals.

No New Posts Rout at Mrs Olmbeck-Higgins'
Stoke near Meryton, Herfordshire
3 March 1813

A ball is being held at the Stoke estate, hosted by Mrs Olmbeck-Higgins in hopes of forging new contacts and generating more matchmaking possibilities for herself and her charges. Anyone of aristocratic, gentry and bourgeoisie backgrounds may attend, especially if single and looking for a mate, but all must arrive in full evening dress. Doors will open at six, all guests will be expected to greet the hostess in the waiting room promptly, followed by dancing, and dinner will be served promptly at 10, upon which time the doors will close. Cards may follow dinner, and all will be sent home by midnight.

No New Posts Lady Day Planting Festival
Village Green, Belfield
20 March 1813 (Saturday)

Traditionally a time to renew rents, contracts, leases and employment agreements, Lady Day also serves as the local planting festival in Belfield! The Village Green will be set up with tables featuring seeds and sprouts of various plants, open to trade, view or purchase, and anything gardening or farming related will be well conversed. A wooden dance floor and live music provides entertainment, as well as moderate food and refreshments. This event is open to all classes, though the most snobby and proper may want to avoid mixing with the lower classes.

No New Posts Belfield
A quaint scenic village in the country of Hertfordshire, nestled near Bluemont Brook and located about a mile away from Meryton, this village is home to many commoners and genteel persons alike who wish to live a life of simplicity away from the taint of Bath or London. With a Village Green serving as the central focus of this community, winding dirt roads lead through blackberry patches, a grove of apple trees, and to the surrounding farmlands and manorlands.

No New Posts Harendon Woods
Located southeast from the village of Belfield, past several miles of winding farmlands and manor houses, Harendon Woods offers the nearest source of local hunting and trapping. Part of the Bluemont Brook actually extends down and through the Harendon Woods, offering a perfectly suitable source of water for many of the wild animals here, and is a local hotspot for trapping and hunting. The woods are often filled with genteel individuals in August, the most fashionable time for hunting; but though Harendon Woods is a local popular destination, it is not the most fashionable among the upper classes.

No New Posts Around Hertfordshire
While Hertfordshire has an ancient history, with the occupations of Romans before the fall of Rome and several of its ancient settlements even appear in the Doomsday Book, Hertfordshire has become extremely popular with the genteel and aristocratic crowds because of its location to nearby London. Many wealthy and fashionable types are renting and buying up the country houses in the area, making Hertfordshire in turn boom economically.
