***OOC IS HERE***

THE ANNALS OF HOUSE CADE

A Song of Ice and Fire RP



"Leoric Cade, lord of Castle Tarrow, shivered in the cold autumn chill of the night alongside his men. Though he wore leather, and chain atop of that, the cold seemed to seep into his bones. Perhaps it was the anticipation, not the weather, that chilled him so. The anticipation of battle. The anticipation of slaughter.

The night was pitch black: they dare not light torches for fear of being spotted, and the moon was considerate enough to hide behind thick clouds, so they could see almost nothing from the edge of the forest. He could hear breathing, however; the breathing of thousands of men in tense anticipation. He could only pray to the Seven above that the westernmen would not hear it as well, deafening as it seemed to his own ears. Atop the hill, he could see the glow of the enemy camp, as the ruckus of their own host feasting carelessly. Minutes seemed to stretch to hours.

Then, he finally heard the sound he'd been straining his ears to catch: The screams of men, dogs, and horses. All at once, the camp seemed to become frenzied, like a disturbed hive. This was it, it had to be! It was the hour of the wolf. The Young Wolf.

From duty runs rivers of gold, he reminded himself, echoing the words of his house to reassure himself. He could hear the shouts of his fellow lords ordering their men forward. "It is time," he shouted to those surrounding him. "Time to butcher these Lannister pigs. Onward, for Castle Tarrow, for Riverrun, and for Winterfell!" As the others took up the shout, he hurried forward into the darkness, among a line of men of shadows. They raced as fast as they dared in the darkness, towards the camp and battle... to claim Oxcross for the King in the North.

Premise

Welcome to yet another A Song of Ice and Fire (Or Game of Thrones for you show types) RP. This one will be set during the later end of the War of Five Kings, well after the Battle of the Blackwater. Unlike many of these kinds of RPs, you (yes, you) will not be creating your own major houses. Instead, we will create characters belonging to, or pledged to, House Cade, a Riverlander house sworn to the Freys of the Twins.

From how I see it, there are four categories of characters you can create:
1. A member of House Cade (ex: Brother to Lord Leoric, wife, son, cousin, and so on)
2. A petty lordling pledged to the Cades (You'd make your own house, but they'd be little more than landed knights, no big castles or anything)
3. A knight in the service of the Cades (Household knight or hedge knight, whichever you please)
4. A commoner (ex: a farmer, a guardsman, a cook, a messenger, and so on...)

Essentially, the House will start as a blank slate, which we'll fill up with our own characters as we make them. They'd all be involved in the goings on in Castle Tarrow. The big driving force of the story in the RP will be the War, of course. Being sworn to the Freys, we'll have to chose between loyalty to House Tully, or loyalty to the Twins.




Alright, enough rambling: Let's see what you guys think. Don't feel pressured to create characters right away. Just say if you're interested, and if so start mulling over character ideas. Tomorrow, if there's sufficient interest, I'll post my sheet for Lord Leoric Cade, and we can get to work from there.

Game of Thrones must be a bit intimidating. This is very wide open, I'd like to know more about Leoric, but I've got a Hedge Knight concept in the works, should this pick up some steam. :)

@Heat @Kassarock @Chazwazzer

Hey, sorry I haven't responded, after two weeks I thought nobody was interested. I'm still open to GM this if you guys are still interested.

Maybe, I'm like 50/50 on this one tbh because I love ASOIAF but I don't know whether I particulary want to RP in its universe. Is four big enough for what you had planned?

Four is plenty. It'd be ideal to have more, of course, but we could get by with four. (It might even make things better, with more focused and interactive characters.)

I'll go ahead and write up an example sheet for Lord Leoric once I'm off from work.

Here's that sheet I promised. Keep in mind many aspects of Lord Leoric's life are placeholders; for example, I wrote that he is childless, but if someone decides to play as one of his children I'll amend that in. The players will fill in the blanks of House Cade like that.

If other people are still up for this, I could write a C.S. for a sworn knight, or maybe a bastard relative or something?

Either or. And just to be 100% clear: You guys can play as relatives of Lord Leoric as well, such as cousins or children. Don't feel shy about overwriting my placeholder fluff.

I'm going to get an official OOC up sometime in the next couple hours. I'll let you know.

For newcomers: This is still going on, and we haven't started yet. There's still time for more joiners.

@Vahir@Emma

What positions are still open? Would it be okay to change the Bio of Lord Cade so that he has a son from his previous marriages?

I think so. He said his CS is changeable depending on who makes what character. Though I would have to rethink my character. lol Go for it.
