The Year is 370AC.

House Baratheon of King’s Landing sits on the Iron Throne under King Galladon Baratheon, first of his name. It has ruled since King Robert Baratheon successfully won the civil war to oust House Targaryen (and the incest between Cersei and Jaime Lannister was never discovered by Jon Arryn - preventing the War of the Five Kings). A consequence of this undiscovered incest, however, is the poor fertility of the line. The young Galladon Baratheon currently finds himself with no direct heir in his bloodline.

Across the ocean in Essos, Daenerys Targaryen would never launch her invasion of Westeros. Instead, she formed the Empire of New Valyria - declaring that she would first free Essos from the chains of slavery and cruelty before setting her sights on Westeros. What started as a city-state operating out of Meereen is now a grand empire encompassing the lands of Meereen, Yunkai, Astapor, New Ghis and Mantarys. It is currently ruled by the son of Daenerys Targaryen, Emperor Rhaegar Targaryen. Spies report that it is gearing for war, with its sights set on the Free City of Tyrosh. In response to this, the Free Cities of Essos (Lys, Tyrosh, Myr, Pentos, Braavos and Lorath) have formed a ‘Grand Coalition’ to defend their lands and hopefully dismantle this Empire of New Valyria. Westeros, under King Galladon Baratheon, has pledged itself to this Grand Coalition and troops recently made landfall in Essos, led by King Galladon himself.

The Invasion of the White Walkers has yet to happen - thus far a false prophecy. However, rumblings from the Night’s Watch continue of increasingly strange occurrences and disappearances happening beyond the wall. The typically paranoid Night’s Watch, no doubt…



Hiya folks, cheers for checking out this interest check for Valar Morghulis, an advanced game of thrones roleplay.

I'm doing something a bit different with this roleplay, setting it several decades in the future to allow for the greatest level of creative freedom. More than this, the roleplay will be split into three successive 'acts', all of which will allow for different styles of storytelling.

In the first act - we have a focus on war and action. Stories of heroism, bravery and tragedy on the battlefield will all be prevalent here as our characters battle through Essos. I'm going to create a few prevalent characters from the Empire of New Valyria who will serve as 'antagonists' or rivals for our own characters during this conflict - and who knows, they may turn up in later acts.

Act Two will accommodate the scheming, backstabbing, poorly-planned weddings and dishonorable noblemen fighting for power as the focus returns to Westeros from the military campaigns in Essos. The third act, without spoiling too much, will focus on an invasion of Westeros itself - and the outcome of this invasion will be decided by the stories we create during the first two acts.

We will create the houses of Westeros and characters within, with each writer having creative control over their own house such as House Lannister or Tyrell. Houses cannot be reserved as such, but if you have interest in writing for a specific house, then I encourage you to make it known. It is also possible to play a single character - such as a member of the Small Council or Kingsguard.

If you have any questions, please fire them my way in this thread. I'll look into creating a discord if there is enough interest for quicker communication.

Cheers!

@Product Cheers for the interest!

I would be reluctant to have a writer for any King Beyond the Wall at the moment, purely because there won’t actually be much for you to do. The first act of the roleplay will be focused on Essos and the characters who have travelled there from Westeros - be they of noble birth or otherwise.

After the conclusion of the war in Essos, our characters return to Westeros and act two begins - which concentrates on political maneuvering and scheming as the nobility compete for authority in a power vacuum.

Only in Act Three would a King Beyond the Wall potentially be a viable character, and that is quite late in the roleplay.

Tl;dr - I’d prefer if you wrote for a character, or house, south of the wall for now.

We definitely do! I'd be happy to have you.

For everybody else - I've created the discord chat after a slight delay. The good news is that the OOC has almost been completed, and I've not five straight days off of work to finish it up. In the meantime, please do join the discord and get to know the others who're interested! You're also welcome to start working on house concepts and making interest in a particular house known through the discord.

Here's the link!

Glad to see so many of you joining the Discord! I'll aim to get up an OOC and Character Sheet outline in the next few days. For anybody thinking of joining, the following houses have interested writers:
House Baratheon of King's Landing
House Baratheon of Dragonstone
House Martell
House Lannister
House Stark
House Velaryon
House Celtigar


There's still quite a few interesting choices left, so feel free to pop into the Discord for a chat and to discuss ideas.
