Great post Rojax. Looking forward to hearing more about your Duchy.
Thank you Comulent and Serverus1, much appreciated!
I've had some questions as to the theme of Lyon. The main City of Lyon is a University town. As this is the central City of the Duchy the theme of learning and knowledge has spread well into the surrounding counties.
Awesome post Rojax, wish you all the best for the development the duchy.
Added the Flag of Lyon
Symbolizing Diplomacy, Freedom and Higher Learning.
Now recruiting for candidates to assume the role as members of the Great House of Lyon. This is your chance to start the game as a sibling, child, cousin, niece or nephew of the Duke of Lyon, and (potentially) bear the surname "Lyon".
The moto of the House is: Ex Scientia Venit Postestas! From Knowledge Comes Power!
Those interested in the noble house of Lyon may be interested in a unique combat style only known by Duke Rojax, Grandmaster of the Fighting Monks. At this time the style will most likely be a martial art with weapons.
We are pleased to have Mayoress Strixa on the ducal council representing the health and medical interests of the duchy.
A little history on the House Lyon. The Lyon's are descended from a long line of nobles and even some Kings. The name comes from our ancestor, Cedrick, who is said to have spent the night starving in the desert while on The Crusade. Having nothing but his bare hands he defeated a Lion and dined like a king. He emerged from the desert wearing the head of a Lion and brandishing claws as his weapons. From thence forth he became known as Lyon.
We are pleased to have Eric taking a position on the ducal council. He will be our chief diplomat.
We are so proud of the work SBS is doing! We especially want to thank Caspian for his vision and dedication to CoE!!
Elyrian Expedition: Expeditionary Force will focus on away missions but will also provide military support within the Kingdom.
County of Blackhawk will feature a fighting arena with ladder tournaments and gold for the victors. There will be plenty of gambling to do while you wait for your match to be live streamed. Count Zastrix will be leading this up.
I added this section to the post to highlight some of the great things we have going on in Lyon:
The Duchy of Lyon will be focused on developing players along the whole spectrum from PvP players to healers, to traders, to scientists. Everyone will be needed and greatly valued! We will advance by conducting research in all areas and providing teaching in all subjects.
Some of the current highlights of the duchy are:
A unique open handed combat style.
An arena with a ranked ladder system.
Universal health care.
A Cathedral dedicated to the Gods.
An Expeditionary Force.
