Welcome to Backwinded! We are a historical fantasy play-by-post RPG focused on having fun with plot and character development. We are open to all role-playing experience levels who have an interest in history and who wish to become involved in an engaging plot.

Game-play is revolved around an original world inspired by our world's eighteenth and early nineteenth century as well as the Age of Sail and Piracy. Players can
explore the themes of warfare, military life, diplomacy, politics, companionship, romance, scandal, and social classes.

Be sure to explore our Wiki and check out the Question Centre and FAQ page. If you have any further questions, feel free to send a message to a staff member. Also drop by our chatbox to meet our friendly staff and members.


In the country of Longren, it is a time of grace and refinement, remarkable ambitions, and the pursuit of knowledge. But it is also a time of misery and poverty. On the surface, the capital Wiltown may seem rich and picturesque, but it is crumbling from within. The nobility seem only concerned with their games of power and prestige, while there are swarms of rookeries uncovered across the cultured city. Matters are worse across the many seas.

In recent years, their empire has been threatened by Gaetan, a country to the south-east which had suffered a revolution resulting in the fall of their monarchy. Now with a declared emperor, Longren and Gaetan are at war. Longren's control over the Western Isles and other regions of their empire is wavering. Not only are they being attacked by the navy of Gaetan, but the Western Isles is now littered with pirates, who have taken advantage of the situation to attack Longren's established trade routes and civilians residing overseas.

Over 7,000 islands of paradise, yet it seems that war and bloodshed is inevitable. Some believe it is a blessing and others, it is a curse. Where do you stand?
