秘苑 : Secret Garden

about secret garden

secret garden in a nutshell

Sipje, Guri, and Saro (based off of Baekje, Goguryeo, and Silla respectively) are the three kingdoms that make up the Korean peninsula from 57 BC to 668 AD. As neighbors, they’ve been cordially living with one another in peace, but there’s been tension in the air. Hushed whispers of a possible attack from one of the kingdoms has been spreading like wildfire across the land. Is any of it true? No one can say for sure. Some say Guri has finally decided to use its military power to conquer the peninsula, some say Sipje is stepping up to finally fight back, and others have said Saro has changed its ways from political to military tactics.

But before any of these rumors could come true, a common enemy appeared on the horizon threatening all three kingdoms : the Mongolian empire. Presenting themselves at the northern border of Guri, the empire was ready to take on all of Sipje, Guri, and Saro all at once. The beginning of this war is where we begin our story. Important figures of each nation (the prince/sses, concubines, treasured scholars, artisans, and poets, and their select guards, maids, naeshis, and gisaengs were secretly placed onto a ship in the dead of night on route for a secret island far off the coast where they’ll remain in hiding and protected. Having expected such a situation to occur years ago, this island in uncharted waters had been designated as a place of refuge, and a palace grand enough to fit everyone awaits them there. Taken from the comfort of their homes, these individuals must learn to adapt in their new surrounding. Will the island be the safe haven everyone hoped it would be? Or will it become a pit of chaos as unexpected reunions uncover buried secrets?

rules & regulations

follow them closely and carefully

basic rules

Favorite the rp. An upvote isn’t mandatory but appreciated. First character is free, second character requires a blog post (please refer to the rules room for blog requirements).

Accounts that are less than 6 months old will not be accepted. We also hold the right to not accept you on admin’s discretion if there is knowledge of you being a problematic user.

Newcomers must put up a basic profile up within 3 days of joining. As long as you are rping—whether in IC chats, literate rp threads or a mix of both—you will be considered an active member. Inactivity will be declared after 8 days. If you become inactive, a warning will be issued and your character must become active within the following 24 hours to be able to stay in the rp. In the case that your character becomes inactive 8 days after you cleared your first inactivity sign, you will be removed from the rp without warning. You will also not be allowed back in for a period of three days once that happens.

Head to the request room for a hiatus or CC. Each user is limited to 2 character changes for every character they have whether it’s a face claim change, role change, or both. Only full hiatuses are offered and the maximum is 2 weeks.

roleplaying rules

All plots of any nature must have the consent of all participating parties. Rated plot threads will be limited to rated rooms, walls, and pms and each post should contain appropriate trigger warnings at the top if necessary.

OOC drama will not be tolerated and will result in immediate eviction as seen fit. This also includes bullying/harassing/being rude to other users and bubble roleplaying.

One-liners are welcome when chatting in character however things like texting abbreviations, emojis, and kaomojis, should not be used when IC. Try to refrain from being OOC to a large extent in IC rooms but when necessary, use brackets when communicating ooc in IC rooms.

Both death and pregnancy plots are allowed but both require approval from the admin team. plots/connections are not allowed.

admin comments

This rp has moderately paced events scheduled to move along the storyline, but is structured in a way where you make your time here self-paced.

Literacy is encouraged, but not required. We hope to create a culture where users can be both literate and illiterate in any of the roleplaying rooms by not limiting IC chat to a specific room.

Before joining or as soon as you join, please look through all of the information tab’s rooms.

Your character is fleeing a war whether they like it or not, and is now forced to be cordial with rival kingdom characters they most likely do not think positive of. Fear, anxiety, and worry will be a common trait among many whether shown publicly or hidden deep down.

how to comment

read before you reserve

To reserve a character please comment with the following 3 items that pertain to your character:

  • Faceclaim Name: Check the “current residents” list on the main layout to see the availability of your desired faceclaim before commenting to reserve. Currently only Korean faceclaims of celebrity status are accepted. Individuals that are deceased, problematic, or have defined their wishes of not wanting to be roleplayed are not accepted faceclaims.
  • Original Character Name: All characters must have an original character (oc) name. Because this is a historical au based in east asia with asian faceclaims, all names must be culturally suitable. If you require assistance on culturally correct Korean names feel free to ask for assistance! We also have a name bank room for your convenience.
