-====== Song of Whitemeadow ====== 
-Whitemeadow is a mostly social and political [[guide:​roleplaying|roleplaying]] plot created September 24, 2017 by [[:​guide:​game master|GM]] [[user:​gallant]]. 
-It is a spiritual successor to [[plot:​scythe]]. And strongly touches on the themes of political intrigue, intrapersonal relationships,​ coping with grief and social expectations. It has been commented that the Song of Whitemeadow reminds people of the fantasy drama, Game of Thrones.

-**Status:** This plot is currently open, please contact GM for instructions. 
-[[http://​​|Plot Rating]] : 3 - 3 - 3 
-==== Plot Overview ==== 
-The Frontier of the Frontier, the system of [[system:​heled|Heled]] is the first of [[faction:​asteria]]'​s new colonies. ​ Located on the far galactic south of the Asterian Frontier, the habitable planet of this system remained unclaimed despite being cleared of its [[species:​mishhuvurthyar]] presence by an earlier expedition from the [[stararmy:​fleets:​fifth_standard_fleet]]. 
-Early in Hachigatsu, of [[calendar:​YE 39]], a charter was granted to one of the [[character:​bhelith blackspear|Mikado'​s]] nephews; Lord [[character:​npc:​Aniseth Whitemeadow]] was given land holdings on the new planet to found an outpost and begin to colonize the new holding with a mind for turning it into a rich resource for the expanding state. ​ Colonists of all sorts piled upon the ASV //Deluge//, a converted civilian cruise liner, to stake their claims and make their way upon truly unclaimed land.  ​ 
-But Whitemeadow,​ who is still quite close to his minority, is a fledgling at best, and like the colony he and his foundling Knights and Retainers must grow to brave the unknown hills and valleys of their new home with wisdom and courage, proving themselves, in the Asterian way, "Noble by prowess, brave and true," as the fate of a world and the success of the colony rests in the attempt.
