Hello all! Welcome to my newest hosting attempt where you will live the lives of the aristocracy and courtiers under Louis XIV at the Palace of Versailles, circa 1672. Be prepared for a whirlwind of extravagant parties, luxurious balls, games of chance, and a world of potential intrigue. Where etiquette reigns supreme and affairs of the flesh are spectator sports. Come for the marriage market, royal favors, and prestige, or to experience the entertainment capital of aristocratic Europe. It is a world of splendor and magnificence. From his patronage of the arts, his building projects, his personal conduct, the way he dressed, the way he ate, the way he looked, the way he walked… from the fountains in his gardens to the silver by his bed, he established a form of etiquette with the sole view of making the whole country of France entirely focused on his person and his power. Louis XIV, The Sun King will establish his reign as one of the greatest generations of cultural and industrial advancements; among them being our obsession with fashion.

This contest is meant to be super simple and straightforward. Just a little frivolous writing to wallow away these hot summer days. Everyone is welcome to join in at any point during the contest.

There are numerous resources online about Louis XIV and Versailles if you wish to know more about them but that is not necessary to participate in this contest. This contest will be based on an alternate reality as many of the people, places, and events will be fabricated and/or occur outside of the natural timeline. There are no restrictions to adhere to known history such as relationships & events, only that you adhere to the 17th-century theme and what may have been natural behaviors of that time

If you have any questions about anything, please don't hesitate... ask.

A little housekeeping first...

Louis XIV, The Sun King, is convinced he is God’s ministry on earth and has a highly elevated sense of his duty. He is more majestic and has the strong will to become the most glorious King of Europe. He has consolidated all of the authority of France into an absolute dynastic state and has issued an invitation, if you would like to call it that, to all of his nobles to join him at his seat of power, the recently renovated Palace of Versailles.

A great event is to be thrown in celebration of this momentous occasion, The Party of the Delights of the Enchanted Island starting on May 7th and lasting until May 13th. It is sure to dazzle and captivate all those who attend. The party is dedicated to his mother, Anne of Austria, and his wife, Queen Marie-Thérèse though whispers abound that it’s actually to honor his mistress, Mademoiselle Amélia de Barbarac. Versailles is transformed into a legendary and magical dream-like world with elaborate parades, sumptuous feasts, operatic ballets, and brilliant light displays illuminating the night sky.

Over the course of the next week, it will be in your best interest to make an impression on one of the most notable women of the court (Queen Marie-Thérèse, Madame, or the Marquise de Chaumont). On the day of Pentecost, Sunday, May 15th, (and the beginning of the summer season) you will be received and presented in the King’s Council Chamber where you will potentially learn that you have been given the honor of a position within one of the Royal households.


Round 1 Guidelines
Biography: Name, Face claim, Age (18yo+), Lineage (family/nationality ***you can write as little or as much as you like but this is just so that (I)/Louis knows your rank/status), Traits/Personality

Interests: Up to 3 personal interests (you may receive additional impressions/opinions from other extras during the contest.)

Which lady’s household are you interested in being placed in?

Story: Please write about receiving the invite and how that made your character feel; about your attendance at the extravagant celebration; any interactions with extras; and end your story at your presentation to the King. (If you have a particular idea/role in mind for your character please don’t hesitate to let me know in DM)

Looks: 1. During the party or interacting with an extra | 2. Presentation to the King (or more if you like)

It has been about two weeks since the fêtes celebrating the many women in Louis’ life and the official unveiling of Versailles as the main seat of French power. The charming hunting lodge has been completely transformed into a sparkling miniature city glorifying the King’s absolute monarchy. Since then, rewards and posts have been awarded to those that have managed to impress and earn Louis’ favor. Those newly appointed to key positions in the royal households have now been issued a room (more or less) so that they are near at hand to perform their duties. Generally, there are four floors (besides the basements) where courtiers are housed. This includes the attic apartments and the mezzanines. And of course, some apartments are more prestigious than others. (see impressions for more details)

Louis, however, is not yet done with the pomp and circumstance. He plans to continue dazzling the nobility with opulence and keep brains occupied with Courtly life.

As the seasons change so too must your wardrobe. Luxury is Louis’s New Deal. He adores the finest fabrics and the grandest of designs. Not only on himself but on those that would surround him. Fashion is an integral part of acquiring and maintaining influence. Be aware though, that nothing that could be made in France was allowed to be imported (without excessively high tariffs and cutting displeasure of the crown). All of the courtiers will be required to make the appropriate changes via the expanding French luxury goods industry befitting your rank and to show off your social status. (see impressions for more details)

On the morning of June 1st, just after the Grand Lever (the traditional rising ceremony of King & Queen), and during his walk through the Hall of Mirrors to mass, The Sun King unexpectedly announces a special grand masquerade ball to be held on June 25th. The theme for the ball is Greco-Roman Deities and will begin at 23:30 lasting until sometime after dawn. For those few hours, the norms of polite society will be eliminated, allowing you to take full advantage of a potentially scandalous night of anonymity.

Effective immediately, the Avenue de Paris will be lit late at night to encourage late-night shopping and there will begin to be numerous modistes, tailors, and jewelers arriving throughout the month at court for all of your modification needs.

Invited to the ball is a renowned journalist for the world’s first fashion magazine “Mercure Gallant”. Within its pages, anyone across the provinces and abroad can get a glimpse of court life under Louis XIV. As this will be the first publication of the new season, fashion plates will be distributed to inform readers of the most up-to-date fashions. Since Louis is intent on having every court across the continent mimicking the lavish, high couture styles pouring from Versailles, it can be quite fashionable… or downright scandalous to be mentioned in the gazette.


Round 2 Guidelines
Biography  information: (please leave in a spoiler box)

Interests: Up to 3 personal interests (you may receive additional impressions/opinions from other extras during the contest.)

Story: Please write about receiving your reward/post via the King, interactions with extras during the month (shopping, playing, partying, etc…), and your time at the masquerade. 

Looks: 1. Masquerade ball | 2. Any other you might like (optional)

Unique opportunity: I would love to see the design of a room in your assigned apartment at Versailles (edit/non-edit of LAF home design)

The games are afoot, in more ways than one. It is now July and the whirlwind that is Versailles is obviously not planning to slow down any time soon. The parties are steady but so are the debauchery and vices. Something new that you may start to notice is that some courtiers are being less candid about their intoxication from powders and potions.

King Louis has decreed a new tradition; L'Olympiade de le Roi Soleil. Courtiers will go from the gardens and surrounding forests to the indoor sporting courts for several weeks of athletic amusements. Be prepared to elaborately celebrate the King, his anointment by God, and blessing by the sun.

The starting ceremony will last a full 5 days between July 5th through 10th to include fabulous feasts, chariot-led parades, and spectacular fireworks. After that, a series of sporting events take place throughout the month, that will compete noble against noble in great games of skill. But never fail to remember that gambling is an integral part of life at Versailles and the games of chance attached to these events are sure to amuse all in attendance.

While the ladies will be invited to join in such games as the hunt in the forests, pall-mall in the garden pathways, and billiards in the salons, there will also be a progression of male-only matches and races (see notes below). The dames of the court are sure to love it all; coming to watch the King and the handsome gentlemen of the court in their sweaty and open shirts engaging in these most glorious games, which can, of course, be very heated for various reasons.

On the 25th, the final ceremony will mimic the opening; there will be a grand parade of champions in which they are led before the crowd in chariots followed by a spectacular light show, then a celebratory party that will certainly last all night.

On the 30th, the Queen will announce a special treat after such an exciting month, giving the gentlemen the opportunity to place their own wagers and to gain a bit of individual time with the lady of their choice. The only problem they face is that they will not know which lady they are bidding on during the Piquenique Auction. The prize is assured… an intimate luncheon spent in the company of the lady whose basket he has won. Each of you will instruct the kitchens in the preparation of a specialized meal to be concealed in a hamper of your choosing and then decorated by hand. After collecting the assorted offerings with a great deal of secrecy, they will then be auctioned off.

You are welcome, of course, to attempt to encourage, cajole, or perhaps even threaten your gentlemen friends into bidding for the pleasure of their company. (see notes below)

L'Olympiade de le Roi Soleil participation is optional



Piquenique Auction - First done, first served



Round 3 Guidelines

Interests: Up to 3 personal interests (you may receive additional impressions/opinions from other extras during the contest.)

Story: Please write about the Olympiad (did you participate in the sports? Did you gamble?), the picnic auction (if applicable), and your interactions with your interests.

At Versailles, there is an army of cooks whose job it is to provide regular banquets fit for the most extraordinary King God has delivered onto Earth. Gourmet cooking with chefs constantly searching for ways to appeal to the elite’s appetite for novelty food meant to surprise and enchant the guests. To titillate the taste buds. The courtiers of Versailles eat well. And Louis was about to let anyone else in the realm outdo his lavish menus.  The food is as over the top as the costumes and hairstyles.

On the evening of August 15th, Louis will host an elaborate banquet, superior to the usual Grand Couvert (an opulent affair open to the entire court with roughly 500 servants required to cook and serve the meal).

Where are the utensils you might ask? Well here at Versailles, the use of knives and forks has been banned to eliminate the possibility of using either as a toothpick or even weapons during the meal.

While other aristocrats will still be allowed to observe the greatness of the King (and his dinner guests), only a select few, the most distinguished of the royal entourage and diplomatic guests will be allowed to join the King at the table and the show afterward. [All extras plus your characters will be seated]. The King will be completely attentive to the Queen during the meal.

The lavish meal of dozens of dishes consisting of rich French creams, sauces, and meats will begin promptly at 22:00. Food will be served in a succession of “services”: hors d’oeuvres, soups, main dishes, go-betweens, and fruit. Between two to eight dishes could be presented during each service. After the sumptuous banquet, you are all given time to go refresh and change if you like before assembling in the Royal Opera theater for a private (only extras and your characters, no witnesses) premiere of Moliere’s theatrical comédie-ballet, Tartuffe.

Be prepared for a lavish production featuring 95 singers, 80 dancers, 15 soloists, an 80-piece instrumental group, five lavish sets, and over 500 costumes. It is becoming well known that Molière’s comedies exploit and explore the values of French society and all are thrilled at the opportunity to attend this first showing. Of note, will be the absence of The Queen. The King will spend the event attending Amélia and will even escort her through the steps of two separate ballets performed in Act 2 and Act 4.

The play will commence during the wee hours of the morning and you are all left to your own devices after that and through the rest of the month.
