While this is a Hollow knight roleplay, you don't need to have played the game before to join. All Information will be covered in this thread so fear not! However if you do play the game and haven't gotten the 'dream no more' ending and don't want to be spoiled, uuh click away from this.

After many years, the Infection plaguing the kingdom of Hallownest has ended. The Radiance has been defeated, but not all is great. The Kingdom of Hallownest remains empty, for most bugs had died to the infection. But luckily for them, their Kingdom will soon be rebuilt...

You see, far far away from Hallownest lies another kingdom by the name Istillia. This Kingdom had it's own system, it's own gods, it's own society, different from Hallownest. Perhaps the feature that makes it unique is the lack of a King or a queen, but 5 leaders of the main tribes who served as a government for Istillia. They were known to carry out a higher being's wishes, that higher being being the Equity, a higher being with the powers of creation and destruction, who granted the bugs of Istillia a safe place to live, as long as the leaders served under her will.

However, one day the leaders of the tribe made a fatal mistake that angered Equity. Plagued by her anger, she used her powers of destruction to destroy the Kingdom of Istillia, hoping to kill the leaders and all bugs who followed them. Her anger had transformed into a monster the bugs called 'Ruination'.

Despite Ruination's efforts, her true goal was not achieved. The leaders had survived, and so did a few members of their tribes. Knowing that Istillia was not safe to reside in, they decided to travel far in order to find a new place to call home. After many long days of travelling, they finally found a suitable place, and this is where our story begins...

Plot
Show hidden content
You play as a citizen of Istillia who survived Ruination's attack and have been following your leaders who wants to find a new place to settle in, since Istillia was no longer safe to live in. After days and days of travelling, restless nights, and multiple casualties, your journey has come to an end.

Your leaders have found a place to call home, the fallen and empty city of Hallownest. After learning from the remaining citizens about what happened, the Leaders propose that they'll help rebuilt Hallownest to it's former glory. Finally, a place safe from Ruination!

However not all is safe yet. Ruination is still around and she is not happy about the fact the leaders survived and have started worshipping another being: The heroic Knight who ended the Infection. The void in the abyss has started stirring again, and if left unsupervised, could swallow Hallownest and bring it to ruin... again. What exactly did the leaders do that angered Equity, and how could it be fixed?

Quote from rules1) All PH and Roleplaying rules apply. No bunnying, derailing, god modding, being op, being unrealistic, you get the point.
2) Romance is okay, but it should not be the focus of the plot.
3) your characters can be any bug. The only species your oc isn't allowed to be is a Vessel.
4) No character is perfect, more important than others, or a punching bag. Make your characters realistic!
6) First come first serve for leaders.
7) You can play as canon characters from Hollow Knight, but please check events to see if your character is alive in this timeline.
8) Password is your favorite Hollow Knight boss! For those who don't know, feel free to google.

Quote from eventsEnding: Dream no more
-Zote was not neglected and is alive. He has been fought in the colosseum of fools by the Knight.
-Bretta has been rescued from the Fungal wastes and simps for Zote
-The Nailsmith is still alive, and is living a happy life
-The Grimm Troupe has been summoned, and the ritual has been completed. However in this timeline they haven't disappeared, the main reason being that they enjoy Hallownest and want to stay until the lantern is lit in a new place. This means you Grimm simps can play as him.
-Cloth is alive
