~The Crown Jewel & Gem of the Forest: ~
Alabaster, England

'Hidden among the dense oak forests of England, lays the old village of lore: Alabaster.
Founded as a place of refuge by Lord Laurence Black in the 1300's, Alabaster has since continued to blossom as the Mecca of the Mythical World.

The residence of this mysterious village are proud to call Alabaster their home and have named it as a Village which can transform from a Sleepy Woodland Hamlet to a Zone of Chaos in a matter of moments.
It is true to say that their is and never has been a 'dull moment in Alabaster'.

Though one would be mistaken to imagine that Alabaster has not had its political up's and downs, as the founding family - The Blacks - whom had upheld their reign as keepers of the village until the last century, came onto many hardships during their reign, due to the ways in which the Chairman of the Alabaster council (Lord Abel Laurence Black, Second son of Lord Laurence Black, himself) chose to run the village and also for more personal reasons which in turn lead to the demise of the family's reign in the late 1900's.

The Village as ever is in constant conflict with the Mortal world outside and though the their borders have remained shrouded for many centuries this is only thanks to the Fae and Elven glamours which disguise the tree line as a never ending hoard of trees - rather than the vibrant and wholesome village that lays surrounded by Raven-wood, named after the River Raven that meanders through the Alabastian region.
Alabaster is home to many noble families and their grande residencies from Manors to Cottages, as well as all the expected Village facilities.
~ The Church, Library, Town Hall, Doctors Surgery, Bistro & Tavern and infamous Hot springs & Spa

Alabaster's landscape leaves nothing to be desired and attracts Mythicals from all walks of life. It is truly no wonder that is is the proud Capitol of the Mythical World, and though is it small it proves that size isn't everything.

*'Alabaster may not be technologically advanced but it is a place rich in history and a place where many seek to discover their roots, their species origins, or simply venture to escape the rest of the world...'

Once a small village of mortal farmers and ironmongers, Alabaster was first founded as a place of mythical haven in the 1300's. When Lord Laurence Black, a sanguine vampire, set a siege upon the village. The battle was bloody and many lives were lost, mainly mortals.

* This epic feud even made its way into Mortal tales of Lore and is still in tales that are told today all over the world.

The Vamperic Forces of Lord Blacks Legion where written to have ' Burst like wild fire into every house hold in the village; condemning every delicate human soul to death'
Few escaped the wrath of Lord Blacks Legion that night and only his force and their children live to tell the tale.

Alabaster, from that night forth came to be the home and territory of the Black family and for many centuries afterwards it became the home of Lord Blacks three children. Whom in their turn came to take their own reign over the Village as chairman of the village council.

* The day of the siege if carved in Alabastian history and is still celebrated by the residence with an Annual Bonfire in the centre of the village each September. The upper-class are also a custom to having a ball on the night of the siege, where ceremonial blood is spilt as a commemoration of the victory.'

Since the downfall of the Black Family, Abel's Wife's Family - The Rossetta's of Venice, Italy, have kept watch over the village for the last century. Though it fell into ruin it became a cause of concern and was refurbished so as the heir of the Rossetta & Black Coven - Ariane Elizabeth Rossetta-Black, could rediscover her childhood home.

Out of Character:
A little note from the Owner: Jakesaurus
How Alabaster came to be!

'The beginnings of this Role-play surprisingly stretch back as far as my Role-playing days. Early 2006 was around the time that I met Jess and begun to develop my first vamperic character - Lord Lucian Justice Black.
~ Vampires were a fad of Myth Rp at the time and it is needless to say that my love for them has since grown into more of an obsession.

At the time Jess was a much more accomplished Role-player than I and I do consider those old days as my 'noob days' - (All you Rper's out there know that term). She introduced me to Desc Rp and from their our idea's and dream of making a Role-play of our own took off and eventually came into fruition with Alabaster.

For a long time Alabaster was nameless for the most part and flickered through names such as Ignis City and a few others I can't remember.
We started with /just two rooms/ my character's small apartment and a bar. The bar, which later became the tavern, is where the very first idea's of making a role-play were spoken. Jess, a friend of mine - Kyle, Liz and myself threw the idea around for a good few months before we decided to do anything about it.
Jess eventually made some more rooms and so did I - we had settled on the idea of a Academy.

Alabaster University took off! (2008-09?- Maybe)
Though we started small with around 6-10 regular Role-player's the gaming was fun and memorable. Rachel, Becky and Lane and a few other's where just some of the people that I remember from that time.

There is a wide gap between the demise of that Role-play and the creation of Alabaster Village that I cannot remember.
I have been told that the admin of the time decided that a city would be a more fun rp'ing environment and I built my first outdoor room - a cross roads that came to be named Ignis City
(A tiff with Jess and our immaturity brought about the end of Ignis)

September 2011 came and I finally plucked up the courage to talk to Jess again and spring my hopes of rekindling a role-play together. Of course she agreed and so came all the hard work of putting together Alabaster Village, Mythical Role-play 0.1.

So many of you must remember that first Role-play - it was when this very forum really took off.
(Though it was also used for the University Role-play and was modernised by Jess to fit our new plot- The Village)
With the creation of yet another Black family member - Lord Abel Black (I'm sure you guys know him very well) and Lady Valentina Rossetta came Alabaster Village and the rest is history... but no... there is MORE!

It is true that for about two months last January until March I took a break from habbo as the pressures of my Real life were too much and I could no longer function as a sufficient owner to the role- play and in fear of letting it down, I took a time-out.
(In this time my furniture was given to Liz, and she and Kyle did indeed make two Role-plays that flopped due to the state of the Rping climate on habbo - Azura's Gate & Sinclair Academy - Both Mythical Rp's)

April 2012 - Once life had eased off I got back to work and with the death of Abel came my current character -(Another Black Family member and Vampire) Lord Roman Mathis Black.
Alabaster: Rebirth had a wobbly start and no sooner had the Rp begun to bloom, so came the Mass Mute of 2012.

The Role-play has just undergone a massive move, rebuild and expansion - onto HabboMe.com
All is well and I hope to see more of you guys on there in the future.
Happy Role-playing and To Alabaster!

- Jake
