France, 1661 A.D
A year of change and social turmoil is drawing to a close. The King’s wedding to the Spanish princess has been celebrated and effectively drawn a close to the Thirty Years War between the countries. Now it’s time to discover what the new year holds in store for everyone in the court of the man who will become the Sun King. No doubt we can expect a good deal of La Fausseté.

Current Event: Valentine's Day Court

The holiday is celebrated with an elaborate masque hosted by the King and Queen in the Palais du Louvre. Cupid is portrayed as ever by Monsieur, the King’s brother, and the young men of his entourage and the King’s act as his cherubs, delivering poems and flowers to the people of court. Lovers typically send one another notes and poems through the cherubs or other means leading up to the party in the evening where Monsieur as Cupid rules for the night.

The Weather
The snow of January fades to the rains of February, leaving the cobbles slick and somewhat treacherous when the rains freeze, making travels difficult still. Toward the end of the month the weather warms slightly, giving hopes for the spring to come, though the rains will not end nor the winds lose their bite for a while still.

No New Posts Palais du Louvre
Having been the residence and seat of the French Crown since Henry IV took the throne in 1589, the Palais du Louvre plays host to the majority of the French Court when they are within Paris. Boasting grand wings, art galleries and gardens, it is a clear statement of French power. It is currently undergoing construction and additions by declaration of Louis XIV. The Crowned King and Queen, their households and most of the French courtiers within Paris are housed within the Louvre while the rest are housed within Tuileries.

No New Posts Palais des Tuileries
Commissioned by Catherine de' Medici back in 1564, the Palais des Tuileries has a distinctly Italian feel to it, most notably among its grand Gardens. Having been extended upon regularly since Henry IV took the throne of France, Tuileries has since all but connected to the Louvre and plays host to the Dowager Queen, the Duke of Orleans and a number of French and foreign courtiers and dignitaries thanks in part to its long, spacious wings. Most recently, the Théâtre des Tuileries has been built and completed in its construction, as commissioned by Philippe for his brother. Many of the larger events hosted by the French Court are held within this Palace and its Grand Salon.

No New Posts The City of Paris
For those brave enough to venture beyond the grounds of their gilded Palaces, the city of Paris stretches before them invitingly. Home to the common classes, Paris has something to offer for anyone and everyone. Beware the alleyways and darker places, however. The common people do not love their high-born peers, and are known to attack and mug those that look rich and well off.

No New Posts Château de Versailles
The Château de Versailles was originally built in 1624 by Louis XIII, serving as a spacious if relatively small hunting lodge upon the edges of the village of Versailles. Since his crowning, Louis XIV has taken distinct interest in this small chateau and has begun construction upon it to expand it, with the first additions being a large, sprawling garden. It acts as a hunting and summer lodge for the Royal Family when they have want or time to escape the Palaces of Paris.

Beyond Paris and its surrounding lands is the entire country of France. Dotted as she is with other chateaus belonging to the country's Nobility, France also has countless small villages all along its roads.

No New Posts Elsewhere in Europe
While France is the focal point of most stories to be had, the entirety of Europe lies beyond her borders to every side -- even across the Channel. With dignitaries and ambassadors coming from all over, it is not uncommon for the wealthy to travel beyond the borders, back to their homelands.

No New Posts Across the Seas
With sea travel growing ever more efficient and common, the world as the French know it is rapidly shrinking. With the English Channel and the Atlantic Ocean to the northwest and the Mediterranean to the southeast, France knows how to handle open waters. Not to mention, colonies have been established in the new world -- the Americas. But remember, sea travel is dangerous and the chance of disease and death is high. It would be wise to leave it to the privateers and Admirals.

No New Posts Letters & Journals
In this day and age, the ink and quill is perhaps the most common way of speaking one's thoughts and feelings without actually saying a word. Letters, confessions, plans and more can be shared by way of ink and paper here. But be wary. Should one's journals or letters fall into the wrong hands, one could meet a devastating end.
