''[[http://morgaine2005.wordpress.com/ The Chronicles of Albion]]'' is an ongoing {{Machinomic}} illustrated with ''[[TheSims The Sims 2]]''. The series began in October 2009, when [[WordOfGod the author was trying to read another story on Wordpress and Wordpress refused to let her view the page without a Wordpress account]]. Since said author already had a [[http://www.fancifulmind.com/sims/challenges.htm Royal Kingdom Challenge]] going, she decided to open an account and create a blog. Its genre is perhaps best described as MedievalEuropeanFantasy.

The story opens approximately fifteen years after the founding of the kingdom, and the reader is quickly introduced to [[EnsembleCast a cast of characters from all walks of life]]. Multiple storylines are ongoing at all times, allowing for [[RotatingProtagonist Rotating Protagonists]]. However, major storylines often revolve around the nobility and royal family.

This series has no planned ending, but it hasn't been updated since December, 2013, and WordOfGod says it's on a long hiatus[[http://morgaine2005.tumblr.com/ficlist]] and the author seems to have moved to another [[{{Disney/Frozen}} fandom]].

!!Tropes

* AerithAndBob - All over the place. For instance, one family has Lancelot, Guinevere, Galahad, Leona ... and William. It doesn't help that the Arthurian legend, which this story parodies, has a bit of an Aerith-and-Bob-y quality itself.
* AltarDiplomacy: [[spoiler: Princess Lucilla's arrnaged marriage to Prince Uther, in order to extinguish any rival claims to the throne.]]
* ArrangedMarriage - Quite a few.
** Mordred and Dindrane (née Gwynedd) Orkney.
** Frederick Ferreira and Clarice de Ganis
** Bors and Claire de Ganis.
** Morgause and Lot Orkney.
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler: Constantine's plans to remove Vortimer and then become King of Glasonland eventually succeed]]
** [[spoiler: Mordred's plans of vengeance against the Gwynedds were successful and have yet to be discovered]]
* BastardBastard: Francis of Lothario, [[spoiler: Emilia]]
* BigScrewedUpFamily - The Orkneys.
* CallingTheOldManOut - Berach gets a chance to do this to his father; [[spoiler: Tommy]] also does it to [[spoiler: Sir Bors]].
* CoolOldLady - Maude Parkinson! Kata Thatcher too, as well as a few others.
* CrystalDragonJesus - The Wrightian faith of the characters.
* DeathByChildbirth - [[spoiler: Isabel Wesleyan, and much later, Ella Pelles.]]
* DoubleInLawMarriage - Mordred Orkney is married to Dindrane Gwynedd. Mordred's sister Garnet is betrothed to Dindrane's brother Lamorak.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Morgause seemed to genuinely care for Lot and Mordred
** Mordred truly loves Rosette and their children
** Vortigern is said to have doted over Vortimer as a child.
* EvilUncle - Morgause is the Evil Aunt to Tommy, Jessie, Kay, and Ravenna.
** [[spoiler: Mordred to Percival, apparently from the minute Percival was born and quite possibly before he even left the womb.]]
* FantasticRacism - In the immortal words of Creator/TerryPratchett, "Black and white lived in perfect harmony and ganged up on green." Skintone isn't an issue in Albion, but woe betide you if you are a [[http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Plantsim Plantsim]], [[http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Zombie Zombie]] or [[http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Witch witch]] (in countries other than Albion).
* FreudianExcuse: The reason Morgause hates Morgan is implied to be because King Uther and Lady Igraine showered Morgan with love and affection, while ignoring/disapproving of her.
** Of course, WordOfGod states that Uther ''tried'' to love her as his own daughter, but even as a child, she had a cold personalty and so he stopped trying.
** Emilia's ambition derives partially from the fact her stepfather ignored her and her real father not even acknowledging her as his child.
** WordOfGod says Bors' sexism is a combination of being raised in a sexist monastery, having a bad relationship with his strong-willed mother and having little to no experience with women until he was married.
* HeirClubForMen - Used throughout Albionese society, where the eldest male son traditionally inherits. However, it is seen most strongly with Sir Bors (his first four children are very close in age, because the first three were daughters). He also [[spoiler: forced his wife into a late-in-life pregnancy so that he could have a spare. This results in UntoUsASonAndDaughterAreBorn]].
** Subverted with the throne of Albion itself, since the female royals are in line, though only after the men.
** PlayedForDrama with the throne of Glasonland; King Vortimer [[spoiler: having a daughter rather than a son]] only adds fuel to the fire of instability in the country and eventually leads to a civil war
* HeroicBastard: Arthur, Morgan, Ravenna, Milo, Gino, and Beau
* HighClassCallGirl: What Wei Li was training to become before her homeland was destroyed.
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold - Wei-Li, Marigold, Erin, and Tambu all fit this trope to varying extents.
* InadequateInheritor: Thanks to a head injury, Vortimer was this to his father.
* IWantGrandkids - Cerise Chevaux. She hectors one son into marrying, and the other into [[spoiler: patching up his marriage]] so that she can get more grandkids.
* KingArthur - Much of the story and many of the characters parody the Arthurian legend in some way.
* LimitedWardrobe - Despite the good efforts of the many artists at [[http://www.medievalsims.com/forums/index.php Plumb Bob Keep]] and other medieval Sims 2 sites, many of the characters still suffer from this.
* LovePotion - [[spoiler: Morgause uses one to seduce Lamorak.]]
* MamasBabyPapasMaybe: Subverted with Emilia and Lucinius. He knows perfectly well Emilia is his daughter; he just won't acknowledge her as such.
* ManChild: PlayedForDrama with Vortimer; he's child-like due to a traumatic head injury and because of this, he is an easy target for political intrigue.
* MultigenerationalHousehold - Common, as it is typical in Albion for the eldest son to remain in his parents' house even after he gets married and has children.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent - Accolon le Fay arguably falls into this trope. He doesn't eat brains, is rather intelligent, and mostly seems to use his decaying body as a source of jokes rather than any existential angst.
* ParentalFavoritism - Mordred dotes over his kids with Rosette, but has yet to show much interest at all in his kids with Dindrane unless he wants to use them against their mother.
** If you're a girl and your father is Bors, you're not going to have a happy childhood.
* PerfectlyArrangedMarriage: Clarice and Freddy, though not at first
* PrinceCharmless - [[spoiler: Although he isn't actually a prince, Mordred to Dindrane.]]
* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: Zigzagged. While it does have many of trappings of a medieval story, such as gender inequality, class inequality, a overly powerful church, etc., there are also some things which would have been progressive in that time period, such as women attending university, Clarice being able to earn a medical degree and be a practicing doctor, and laws against marrying and other sexual things at a young age.
* ReallyGetsAround - Helena Wesleyan. Even referred to, albeit crossed out, as Town Bicycle under occupation.
* RegentForLife: Francis of Lothario planned to become this. The Brothers Tarquinii would have been this [[spoiler: if Vortimer had survived]].
* RichBitch: Morgause. Babette after her marriage.
* RulingCouple: [[spoiler: Constantine and Emilia]]. Arthur and Alison show this at times as well.
* SchoolgirlLesbians - [[spoiler: Dindrane and Margery, however briefly.]]
* ShotgunWedding: [[spoiler: Babette and Aglovale's marriage]]. Finley and Lile's marriage is this as well.
* SiblingTriangle - Inverted in the sense that [[spoiler: Garnet is in love with Lamorak... who is also being pursued and was once seduced by [[MrsRobinson Garnet's mother]].]]
* SinisterMinister - Brother Tuck seems to be well on his way to becoming this.
* TheMistress - [[spoiler: Rosette, for Mordred.Later on, Wei Li for Mark]]
* TheUnfavourite - In a rare instance of this turning out to actually be ''beneficial'', [[spoiler: Clarice to her father, resident sexist Bors. Bors's favorite, eldest son Elyan, has grown up entitled, obtuse, and so far incapable of respecting women (though he is young enough that an epiphany isn't impossible at this point). Eldest daughter Lynn was always expected to make the best match, ended up marrying ''the crown prince'', and... feels insufficient in regards to "doing her duty" of providing Tommy with heirs, especially after her first child turns out to be a girl and even after she does have a son. Clarice's other adult sister, Angelique, was marked by Bors at birth to be LockedAwayInAMonastery despite being the least suited of the girls for such a life. Clarice got the least of Bors's attention, and while she was still scarred by her father's treatment of the family, she's the only adult sibling who seems to have mostly overcome her childhood.]]
** Also, Dindrane's children to Mordred, big time. Possibly Nimue in particular, as Gawaine is the heir and Gareth is the baby.
* {{Tsundere}} - Clarice to Freddy [[spoiler: initially. Luckily, she's pretty much out of her shell by now]].
* VainSorceress - Morgause Orkney.
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend - Implied in Will and Jessie's backstory.
* WizardingSchool - George Ferreira and Ravenna le Fay attend one of these.
* WouldHurtAChild - [[spoiler: Morgause.]]
