Blood Runs Over Westeros - A Player's Information Guide


Our story takes place in the year 364 AC, during the reign of King Aerys III Targaryen, grandson of Aegon VI Targaryen. Westeros has had many decades worth of healing, rebuilding, and alliance forging. However, beneath the veneer of civility, fealty, and oaths, lies ambition and treachery. Making matters worse the looming threat of New Valyria, an empire carved out in the East by Queen Daenerys Targaryen and her descendants from the ruins of Slaver's Bay and the surrounding countryside, engages in a new war with Volantis and Qarth. In the midst of this chaos, the King received a cryptic missive from the Sea Lord of Braavos, hand delivered by the Sea Lord's own wife and First Sword. Whatever this message beheld, only the King and his Small Council knew of its contents, and for whatever reason, he left for Braavos with all due haste, taking along with him his son and heir as well, Crown Prince Maekar Targaryen.

In their sudden absence, rulership of Westeros has fallen unto the shoulders of Lord Florian Tyrell, Hand of the King. A noble and leal servant, though in the wings of the world's stage, other actors begin to devise their own plots for dominion of the Iron Throne. For if the King and his heir were to meet an unfortunate fate upon the open ocean, well, the matter of succession would be called into question by those who stand the most to benefit from a changing of heirs. Opposing factions ask who would wish for a lengthy regency, one ruled over and presided by Flowers and Scythes, with an infant of two years, Prince Daemon Targaryen. They point to the precedent set by Great Council of 233 AC, where Prince Aerion's only issue was an infant son, Prince Maegor. Only a few spoke up for the claim of Prince Maegor, as his ascension would mean a long regency. Furthermore, they point out the Regency of Aegon III was fraught with betrayal, distrust, death, and constant changing of regents. Lastly, those loudest in opposition to such a regency, merely point out the disastrous reigns of the illegitimate Kings Joffrey and Tommen, and the regents that ruled over them.

Rumors swirl around the docks of all the great ports of Westeros, claiming dragons flying over the Summer Sea, the King's ship went down in a storm, the Emperor of New Valyria had something of great value stolen from him, Qarth has fallen, The Night's Watch elected a new Lord Commander, and so on. Whatever truth lies in the never ending tumult of rumors, this much can be said, the Master of whisperers Lord Vardis "The Vulture" Arryn will know, or he'll know soon.

War is certain in the East, but the question that dances on everyone's lips, will war come to Westeros once more?

Blood Runs Over Westeros Mk4




The following is an excerpt from the life's work of Archmaester Rallis, which recounts the golden reign of King Aegon the VI, and that of his decendants till the year 364 AC.

"Perhaps unlike any king before him, his Grace King Aegon had been shaped for rule before he could walk. He was trained in arms, as befits a knight to be, but that was not the end of his education. He could read and write, speak several tongues, studied history and law and poetry. A septa instructed him in the mysteries of the Faith since he was old enough to understand them. He had lived with fisherfolk, worked with his hands, swum in rivers and mended nets and learned to wash his own clothes at need. He fished and cooked and bounded up wounds, knew what it is like to be hungry, to be hunted, to be afraid. Above all, Aegon knew kingship was a sacred duty, that a king must put his people first, and live and rule for them."


An introduction and invitation to B.R.O.W. Mk4

Blood Runs Over Westeros, Mk4, is the fourth variant of Bluetommy's original Blood Runs Over Westeros Game of Thrones roleplay. This version of the that fabled progenitor of GoT Roleplay centers around the reigns of Aegon VI Targaryen successors, as they struggle to reassert Targaryen rule over the Seven Kingdoms and the Iron Throne. In this timeline, starting in 364 AC, the world stands at the edge of chaos, and only time will tell whether or not those who stand upon the precipice can save themselves, or fall into the Seven pits of hell itself.








Claimed Houses and their Players



Now, after rebellions, wars, religious uprisings, a plague, and the loss of a King, the realm is without a clear heir to the throne, though many will claim they have the greatest right to the seat. A Great Council is needed, before any more chaos can spread, who will hold the Iron Throne is unclear, but one thing is for certain for the soon-to-be future. Westeros will bleed.





I n f o r m a t i o n




Game GM(s):
@Abefroeman

Expected Release Date:
October 15th - November 5th

Posting Guidelines:
Advanced Section expectations; adjustable posting activity.

Influences:
Several A Song of Ice & Fire sandbox RPs that have run on RPG in the last several years, and the great GM's that ran them in the past.

Game Admission:
It's a public game, however, applications will be based on the merits of their quality.

Player Options:
Houses or Individual Characters.

Book Lore vs HBO Lore:
This world is primarily based on the novels written by George R.R. Martin, however, certain events depicted within the T.V. show will be grafted in to the overall lore and timeline of this RP. ((E.x. The destruction of the Great Sept of Baelor by Queen Cersei Lannister, the Sacking of Highgarden,)) When in doubt, refer to the books over the show when crafting your historical progress through the years.

Canon Precedence:
Players have the autonomy - within reason of course - to decide their House's history and how it played into the conclusion of the War of the Five Kings that saw Aegon Targaryen VI crowned as King of Westeros. Furthermore, as more of the story is revealed in a more indepth OOC page, should enough interest come to fruition, players are more than welcome to participate in key events in history that lead to the games start.




Extinct Houses:
War is bloody and brutal, and sometimes, certain Houses go extinct due to their black reputation. House Karstark ceases to be ((1. Replaced by House Thenn, and also because Stannis burned a whole bunch of Karstarks for his Red god. House Bolton is gone, with both Roose and Ramsay dying on the field of battle, and Walda Frey giving birth to a daughter. House Greyjoy is gone too, replaced with House Codd ruling Pyke now. House Clegane is dead... etc. You get the point, a number of Houses went the way of the Hoares, nothing but ashes. Applying for these houses will not be options, not even some random bastard, copy. Most other houses are open for talking points due to the precedence of player autonomy.

Historical Casualties:
Aegon VI did not take control of Westeros with some ink and a signature. Many a man and woman died in that war, fighting for their respective sides. Members of the Golden Company, Margaery Tyrell in the Sept "fire" along with other Tyrell's ((At the player's discretion)), Stannis Baratheon at the Wall, etc, etc. Basically, if a character doesn't make much sense living past their necessary footprints, they're probably dead. Discussions will be open, but remember convincing arguments are as good as Valyrian steel. ((Most folks are dead by now anyhow, due to the timeline.))

Thank you for your interest in this roleplay. I regret to say that the Boltons died out in 301 AC, after Stannis killed both Roose and Ramsay in battle. (Walda Frey gave birth to a daughter, thus ending the Bolton line.)

House Reyne too unfortunately died out a long time ago, in 261 AC. However, House Vikary is a good alternative, as their heraldry suggests historical lineage to the Reynes.

Huh, I suppose I can try the Cleganes or the Umbars unless they're both dead too

I have no idea how the Cleganes survived The Long Night when their two only sons of the line that we know of obviously aren't procreating. Unless we're passing it through the unnamed daughter. That said, I have no strong opinions on the fate of their house.

Dunno how @Asura feels about the Umbers.

Hey!

I'm going to dust off some cobwebs and see what I can create for House Tyrell. I'll edit this post with the WIP as and when.
