In an alternate universe...
King Aerys Targaryen sits atop the Iron Throne. Mad and Paranoid the tyrant sees enemies lurking in every shadow. His Master of Spies, Varys the Spider, becomes his closest advisor as the Mad King seeks to uncover any plot against him. Varys soon discovers that the upcoming Tourney at Harrenhall is a pretext to gather several of the Lords Paramount and discuss a coup to overthrow King Aerys. And it was all set up by none other than the King's own son and heir, Prince Rhaegar.
The difference in this universe, however, is that Varys is able to foresee the chaos that would unfold of he took this information to the King. The death that would fall upon the realm and the destruction of the Seven Kingdoms themselves. Instead he goes to Prince Rhaegar and offers to aid him in this matter. And the Lords all agree that Aerys must be removed.
After a swift and silent, coup Rhaegar takes control of the red keep. It was bloodless, thanks mostly to Rhaegar having the friendship and loyalty of most of the Kingsguard.
Under King Rhaegar Targaryen the realm sees a peaceful and prosperous rule. Great advancements in economic technology and more lay the foundation for the future eras of Westeros. When Winter finally arrives, the white walkers are faced with a united Westeros. Hundreds of thousands of soldiers fighting under the Dragon Banners. They easily repel the horde of the undead and Eddard Stark, brother of Lord Paramount Brandon Stark of the North, slays the Night King with the familial sword, Ice.
With the Seven Kingdoms safe from threats both foreign and domestic, a golden era falls upon the continent. Industrial advancements lead to a boom in technological discoveries. The discovery of gunpowder leads to the rise of a new weapon; the musket. More Universities begin to crop up around the Seven Kingdoms much to the dismay of the Maesters and Septons. This leads to a rise in education for the populous which of course leads us to where we are now.
The Revolutionary Era of Westeros...
So if you stuck with me and read all of my exposition dump, thank you. I hope this sounds like something some of you may be interested in. It will be a roleplay set during the revolutionary era of Westeros. But the reason for the change in history is because I wanted all of the canon houses to be there and not be shattered to pieces like in the books and show.
I do have a lot of book knowledge. Though since the history has been changed and the era is new, it really doesn't matter if you only have book or show knowledge. All of the characters and events will of course be new.
Speaking of which, the story I want to explore will revolve around a revolutionary war to end the monarchy of the Targaryens and establish a free and democratic nation of Westeros. The technology will be that of the revolutionary era. So think, American Revolution or Napoleonic era. Cannons and Muskets. Flintlock rifles and pistols. Age of Sail navies. I'm kind of a history nerd AND a game of thrones nerd. So I really want to combine the two.
In this age of Westeros gender equality will be a bit more common. So you will see females in military roles as well as males. This is mostly due to the fact that I want to play a military leader leading her own armies. I will of course have multiple characters also. And we can discuss our roles and characters in PMs.
I am okay with any gender pairings. I do enjoy smut in roleplays so I'm sure this story will have about 50/50 ratio of smut to story. Please be comfortable with that before messaging. I don't like short replies and I don't roleplay on any other third party site or app.
If all of that sounds good to you then please send me a Private Message. Thank you.
