I'm definitely interested, too!

It's been a while since I've been in a roleplay like this, so I'd love to get involved.

I created a zeroth post in the Characters Tab to serve as a 'Realm Overview' of sorts. On this post, you'll find information on the ruling family as well as the makeup of the Small Council and Kingsguard. It's a work-in-progress at the moment, but it's where all of that information will eventually be.

It will be updated as the roleplay progresses.

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. Rumblings from the Night’s Watch continue, however, warning of increasingly strange occurrences and disappearances happening beyond the wall. The typically paranoid Night’s Watch, no doubt…






This section will be regularly updated with summaries of posts and information about the current storyline and act.








I'm hoping to begin the game on Sunday the 25th of September. This gives us plenty of time to finalise details over Discord, and to create our character sheets. With that in mind, the deadline for submissions is Friday the 23rd of September.

I've put a general outline for a character sheet below (credit to Inkarnate) which gives you a sense of the sort-of information I'm looking for. Feel free to edit and change how it looks, just so long as the essential information about your house and the prominent figures within it are there.





Concerning posting activity, I'm aware that everybody has varying schedules and can only commit so much time. To that end, I'm hoping to perhaps average a post a week each, though there may be times where this is more, or less.

When it comes to rules, I prefer to simply apply common-sense. We're all a part of this to create a fun and unique story within a setting that we enjoy, and so long as we all remember that, I doubt we'll have any issues.
@Tackytaff Interesting choice! We currently have a Blackwood as being the mother of the King.
Glad to have you! As a further update for any interested writers, the following houses now have interest:
House Baratheon of King's Landing
House Baratheon of Dragonstone
House Martell
House Lannister
House Tully
House Stark
House Arryn
House Bolton
House Mormont
House Velaryon
House Celtigar
House Estermont


We're ideally looking for a writer for House Tyrell - so if you're interested, don't be shy!
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.
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.
