Early to Mid 300 AL: Turn Ten:


Cast:

In King's Landing:

Drogo, Khal of the Drogo Khalassar (Dkrol)

Regents and Kings:

Viserys III Targaryen, Pretender to the Iron Throne (Garlan Gunter)
Tyrion Lannister, Lord Regent and Lord of Casterly Rock (1184AZ)
Edric I Baratheon, Claimant to the Iron Throne (Swedge)
Euron Greyjoy, Prince of the Iron Islands (Badgate)
Mance Rayder, King Beyond the Wall (GoTfan)
Aegon VI Targaryen, Pretender to the Iron Throne (Windjammer)

Across Westeros:

Catelyn Stark, Acting Lady of Winterfell and Riverrun (Enduro)
Lysa Arryn, Lady Regent of the Eyrie (X)
Roose Bolton, Lord of the Dreadfort (Elmo)
Doran Martell, Prince of Dorne (Leonardo)
Randyll Tarly, Lord of Horn Hill (Dereich)

General View:

The Reach and the North continue to face civil war as key lords are lost in the deaths of Asha Greyjoy, Petyr Baelish, Davos Seaworth, Mace Tyrell and the High Septon. The survivors are left to battle across the lands as Viserys Targaryen loses his capital, and a new claimant for the dragons across the East rises in Pentos.

The realm continues to bleed...

Player Crisis:

Catelyn Stark:
-Prestige: 3/10.
-Gold: 200.000 GD.
-Legitimacy: 2/10 .

-Lady Stark,

-Your decision to make peace with the wildlings has sent the North into revolt as your authority reaches low points. Houses Karstark and Umber demand a new regent for the North, and the main army at The Twins refuses to march South while fully intending to march back into the North. Can you avoid the danger that this rebellion represents?

Tyrion Lannister:
-Prestige: 2/10
-Gold: 5.400.000 GD.
-Legitimacy: 9/10

-Lord Tyrion:

-Due to the intervention of the Redwynes the Ironborn have been unexpectedly thrown back, although thousands of their warriors hold Lannisport and continue to besiege you in Casterly Rock. On the bright side, Lord Tarly is winning the struggle in the Reach, showing the war is far from over. Can you turn things around?

Viserys Targaryen:
-Prestige: 4/10
-Gold: 20,000 GD (bannermen haven't provided much gold, treasury lost in KL)
-Legitimacy: 3/10

-Your Grace,

-Your victory at Bronzegate is negated by the loss of King's Landing, costing you allies, family members and delivering a punishing blow to your still shaky legitimacy. Furthermore, ravens from the East indicate Magister Illyrio may have decided to back yet another claimant to the Iron Throne. With your armies placed between the Stormlords and the Dothraki, where will you march next?

Doran Martell:
-Prestige: 7/10 (daugther Arianne as Viserys's Queen)
-Gold: 400.000 GD (with a 200,000 loan to the Iron Bank)
-Legitimacy: 10/10

-Prince Doran, good day.

-King's Landing has been lost, but Arianne remains safe with Quentyn and Oberyn (and Cersei remains your prisoner). Still, Lady Tyene has been captured by Khal Drogo, opening up the immediate question of how to save her life. Furthermore, while you have committed heavily to Viserys's cause, whispers from the East seem to imply one of Elia's children may live yet, and may be intending to claim the throne. With the war in such a pivotal moment, how will you act in the coming weeks?

Euron Greyjoy:
-Prestige: 2/10 (some myth behind him)
-Gold: 1.000.000 GD (Asha's plunder plus personal treasury from the Silence)
-Legitimacy: 2/10

-You've returned to the Iron Islands on an interesting context, as Theon is still captured and Balon and Asha have both died. The Ironborn are leaderless after being beaten and thousands of warriors are now trapped in the Westerlands. On the other hand, you bring warlocks and vast magic knowledge from the East. Will the Ironborn strike back despite facing disaster?

Roose Bolton:
-Prestige: 5/10
-Gold: 100.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 10/10

-Lord Bolton,

-Several Northern Houses have started a revolt against Lady Catelyn (but not against House Stark) following her decision to make peace with the wildlings. With the main army involved in a mutiny, this is your moment to act, whether to restore the power of House Stark by acting against the rebels... or follow a different road. What will it be, Lord Bolton?

Khal Drogo:
-Prestige: 10/10
-Gold: 1.000.000 GD (Plunder)
-Legitimacy: Doesnít Apply

-You stand on untold wealth after the sack of King's Landing, your horde standing outside the chaotic city with several key hostages to trade or use in different ways. Even more, you now hold Viserys's three bastard scions (Daena, and a newborn boy and girl). Although the odds are against you due to numbers, your Khalassar is still a force to be reckoned with. Can you find further victory on this campaign?

Edric Baratheon:
-Prestige: 5/10
-Gold: 200.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 3/10

-Despite the loss of Lord Baelish and the soldiers in Bronzegate, the capture of Dragonstone raises the profile of your cause and the entry of Myr into the war provides a solution to your lack of soldiers and ships compared to the Targaryen armies. Now that Viserys has lost his capital and faces a threat at his rearguard due to the hordes of Khal Drogo, can you take the initiative and deliver a blow against your enemies?

Aegon Targaryen:
-Prestige: 1/10
-Gold: 100.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 1/10

-After years of being trained and raised by Lord Jon Connington and your companions, you stand at the manse of Magister Illyrio of Pentos, now committed to the cause of placing you in the Iron Throne. Despite your youth, as the son of Rhaegar Targaryen your claim would be stronger than that of Viserys and Daenerys, and armed with the swords of the Golden Company you can be a crucial factor in the war to come. How will you act?

Randyll Tarly:
-Prestige: 6/10
-Gold: 3.000.000 GD (captured most of the Tyrell treasury)
-Legitimacy: 3/10

-You've ended years of service to Mace Tyrell by capturing Highgarden, gathering a large army and a large treasury that makes you one of the most powerful lords in the realm. And yet, the cause of King Tommen is in need to stronger leadership in order to succeed against the other Kings who claim the crown. Can you build up on your accomplishments, Lord Tarly?

Mance Rayder:
-Prestige: 6/10
-Gold: 50.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 10/10

-The Wall has fallen and the Starks have offered peace, even if such a peace has provoked a revolt with the Northern Lords. But you know what lies beyond the North and what is coming, and many problems are to be solved as many castles of the Night's Watch still resist and, furthermore, food is scare for your armies and your people. Can you save them, King Mance?

Lysa Arryn:
-Prestige: 2/10
-Gold: 450.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 8/10

-Despite the crushing loss of your husband you live on, and the times ahead look dark. Your son Robin is already married (although the marriage won't be consumated for years), and while the Vale looks safe from the inside the Targaryen fleets now block Gulltown, costing the Vale a large amount of income. Will you lead the Vale into further greatness, Lady Lysa?

Early to Mid 300 AL: Aftermath (I)Sad


Clash of the Stag and the Dragon:

Locked in an apparent stalemate after the Baratheon loyalists had captured Dragonstone and Viserys had stormed Bronzegate both claimants to the throne prepared to change their respective positions, taking several risks along the way. Many battles were fought between the Stags and the Dragons, one of them decisive:

Bronce Yohn rides South: Finally allowed to march South to battle the Targaryens, Yohn Royce pressed ahead through the Kingsroad and smashed the forces of House Ryger at a series of skirmishes. Having cleared the roads that led to the Vale, Royce pressed ahead at full force against Maidenpool, barely defended by a small contingent led by Lord Darry and a landing force of 5,000 Lysene troops sent by Prince Aegon. Royce triumphed against the revolting Riverlords (capturing Darry) and then ambushed the Lysene as they rearranged their forces, dispersing, capturing or killing the entire force.

Battle of Gulltown: Despite the Gulltown blockade being close to an end by the command of the Targaryen fleet to march South as quickly as possible the unsuspecting Lady Lysa ordered an attack to break the blockade despite the large difference in numbers. A battle raged across the harbor, the Arryn fleet ending up mostly sunk or burnt after inflicting heavy casualties on the combined Targaryen fleet, which sailed south damaged.

Stormlander Campaign: Viserys rearranged his forces, assigning Ser Barristan and Prince Oberyn to lead the Dornish host and his personal army to the Reach to battle Lord Tarly. An attempt by Prince Oberyn to ride the unruly dragon Aeryxes led to the Dornish Prince getting one of his arms badly burnt, halting plans to turn him into a dragonrider. Before the armies left to the Reach Viserys led them towards Parchments, securing a large part of the Stormlands and the fortress itself before departing West. An attempt to force a change in sides from House Tarth failed, however, Lord Tarth angrily denouncing Viserys for the apparent disappearance of her daughter in King's Landing.

Liberation of Duskendale: Unaware of the disaster at Maidenpool, Lord Ryger and a small force of 1,500 Rivermen marched South, securing Duskendale after the withdrawal of the Dothraki Khalassar to Harrenhal and narrowly avoiding the sellsword armies that Khal Drogo had hired and sent to Westeros. Soon they were joined by another 5,000 Volantene contingent sent by Prince Aegon, which successfully camped closed to the abandoned and chaotic King's Landing.

Battle of the Gullet: Viserys made the risky gambit of riding Rhaellar and flying with Aeryxes as well to join his combined fleet as it sailed south, fully intending to launch an assault on the Baratheon fleet before sailing to Oldtown. His plans came to a sudden end due to the decision of Edric Baratheon to sail with his fleet North, intending to reach the Vale. By the time both fleets suddenly discovered each other across the Gullet Edric had the upper hand, fighting the damaged Targaryen fleet and having the advantage of the Redwyne Fleet being days away from their position. On the dark side for both, a storm was soon approaching.

The initial hours of the battle proved vicious, both fleets locking themselves up in close combat as Viserys and his dragons burnt several Baratheon ships, forcing Edric and his admirals to fight as close as possible to discourage the use of dragon fire. Despite the numbers being on Edric's favor the dragons proved a reliable weapon, forcing a tactical stalemate as ship after ship caught fire. It was almost dusk when Viserys launched his dragons against the Baratheon flagship, and the Stags concentrated all fire on the coming beasts. It was there that, fatefully, a rain of arrows pierced the skull of Rhaellar, hurling her and Viserys towards a ship set ablaze.

Viserys Targaryen never emerged from the fire. Aeryxes went berserk after the loss of Viserys and Rhaellar, burning ships from both fleets as the coming storm soon took over the scene, separating the fleets and crushing many surviving units. Admiral Aurane Waters (Salladhor Saan having died in the storm) would take a few days to gather the surviving Targaryen ships across the coast of Rosby and Duskendale. Edric (who almost perished in the storm) and a large part of his forced barely made it Dragonstone. His Regent, Lord Bryce Caron, was also lost in the battle.

The Khal in Harrenhal:

Fresh from a resounding blow against the Targaryens by sacking King's Landing, Khal Drogo wasted little time in staying in the area. After overseeing the execution of Grand Maester Pycelle and the bastard Gendry Waters his Khalassar marched back on the mighty castle of Harrenhal. As some offers began to show up for some of the captives Khal Drogo negotiated a lucrative deal with the Free City of Lys, returning Magister Ormellen to his city in return for free passage for new sellsword forces that were hired with all the captured gold.

With his sellswords landing unmolested as the Baratheons and the Targaryens bled each other dry, the Khal sat on a much larger army now. Yet it was clear he was not safe, for a botched assassination attempt by a cook almost killed Drogo, and a spy was captured after trying to introduce himself on Daenerys's room. The intruder was identified as Brown Ben Plumm, sellsword captain in service to Viserys.

The Northern Revolt:

Faced with such complicated odds, and having taken steps to ensure the safety of some of her family members, Lady Catelyn Stark decided to yield after having fought to lead the North. Tired and exhausted due to the strain of losing a son and a husband she relented at last to the demands of the many revolting lords, and scored one minor success to her name by ensuring the name of Lord Wyman Manderly was the one accepted by the rebel army and Houses Umber and Karstark to become Lord Regent. The revolt defused despite the strong distrust of the Northern Lords towards the Wildlings (several skirmishes continue to take place among the Umber border), it ended on a somber note as ravens from Moat Cailin informed that Lord Roose Bolton had been poisoned. Ramsay Snow was also victim to an attempted assassination in the Dreadfort, falling into a deep coma.

Far towards the North, King Mance Rayder took steps to secure the safety of his people, attempting to prevent full-scale war against the Northern Lords and find ways to feed the Wildlings. Despite having acquired a wealth of knowledge from the library of Castle Black and having successfully rearranged the defences of the area the remnants of the Night's Watch and Umber forces continue to fight wildling parties, and with Winter setting across the North for good the chances of a harvest are close to none. Already a few dozen wildlings are reported to have died of hunger.

Early to Mid 300 AL: Aftermath (II)Sad



Ironborn invasion of the Westerlands:

Seizing power effectively, Euron Greyjoy soon silenced or sidelined many of his opponents to become King Regent of the Iron Islands (technically still sworn to the captive Theon), gathering the remnants of the Ironborn power to sail to the Westerlands to avenge Asha and save the thousands of warriors trapped. While House Lannister unsuccessfully attempted to bribe the Ironborn into surrender and its armies gathered to strike, Euron sailed back, aided by the dark magic of his warlocks.

Battles of Casterly Rock: Having burned Lord Blacktyde and Lady Redwyne (and her unborn son) Euron sailed unnaturally fast, relieving Lannisport and leaving a small garrison as he prepared for the decisive battle. With Ser Jaime Lannister riding as fast he could to relieve Casterly Rock, Euron concentrated his forces, and using the power of the warlocks to enhance the fighting trance of his men and weaken the resolve of the Lannister forces the Ironborn stormed Casterly Rock. The fight was intense due to the defences of the fortress and its many underground passages, and Euron almost sensed victory when his men stormed one of the main halls where King Tommen was located.

Staying behind to guard the King Ser Arys Oakheart found his death, and it was only the timely intervention of the sellsword Bronn and the Lannister household guard who rescued the Lannister royal family (Tommen, Myrcella and Lady Tarly). As Ser Jaime approached the outskirts of the Ironborn position Euron was forced to abandon the castle, but not before being notified Lord Tyrion had met his end falling to the sea when cornered by a group of warriors. Ser Jaime's relentless assault broke the Ironborn lines, forcing the host to return to Lannisport with a few Westerlander hostages but short of the crucial hostages. Ser Jaime was then reported to mourn his late brother with inmense grief.

Reach Civil War:

Lord Tarly has triumphed against the Tyrells, becoming the main power in the Reach as a large host amassed behind him. Still, such success would only be fleeting until he consolidated his position, and the Targaryen Loyalists were determined to crush him.

First Battle of Brightwater Keep: As the forces of Houses Rowan and Hightower layed siege of Brightwater Keep and expected reinforcements from other Targaryen forces Lord Tarly struck fast and decisively. Deploying as much as 30,000 men against the outnumbered Reachlords he broke their siege lines and crushed their camps one by one, the Hightowers faring only marginally better than the Rowans, who were killed, captured or suffered from defections almost to a man. Soon the survivors returned to Oldtown or marched North, Tarly bolstering his ranks with some defecting untils and securing the peaceful surrender of the Florents in exchange from mercy.

Second Battle of Brightwater Keep: Lord Tarly engaged in extensive efforts to bring the Reach into heel, his task aided by a botched attempt by Viserys to offer Highgarden to House Oakheart should they join his side. Having angered a few pro-Targaryen lords with this, Tarly used promises, threats, pledges and offers of all sorts, cementing the loyalty of most of the region as the news of Viserys's death spread. In the meantime, Prince Oberyn, Ser Barristan and the combined Dornish-Targaryen army had done a punishing march from the Stormlands and Dorne to confront Lord Tarly, finally arriving near the Mander to confront the Tarly vanguard. The resulting battle turned inconclusive, as an attempt to encircle Tarly was broken by the Reach cavalry and further Dornish assaults were brought to a halt.

In the aftermath, and as Oberyn and Tarly set their hosts in defensive positions opposite each other, Prince Aegon Targaryen, the Golden Company and a mixed Lysene-Volantene army landed at last in Oldtown.

Viserys Targaryen meets an unlikely end just as a surviving member of the Targaryen Dynasty lands in Westeros again, turning Prince Aegon Targaryen into the man of the hour. Euron Greyjoy battles with the Lannisters to the death, and across the North Lord Wyman Manderly seizes the Regency from the discredited Lady Stark.

Will the war ever end?

Player Crisis:

Wyman Manderly:
-Prestige: 6/10.
-Gold: 300.000 GD.
-Legitimacy: 6/10 .

-Lord Manderly,

-Congratulations on assuming the Regency over young Lord Brandon, may your rule over the North prove prosperous. With the Northern Lords losing interest in the war across the South after the loss of Ned Stark it appears your new bannermen demand for the North to mobilize to finish the threat of the wildlings in the Gift, while others advocate making a target of the Greyjoys as well in revenge for Ned. As winter begins to cover the North, you must thread carefully.

Jaime Lannister:
-Prestige: 8/10
-Gold: 5.000.000 GD.
-Legitimacy: 10/10

-Ser Jaime,

-My condolences. While your armies have saved Casterly Rock and Tommen the Ironborn succeeding in killing your brother and continue to resist in Lannisport, supported by the use of dark magic and the military prowess of Euron Greyjoy. On the other hand the city of King's Landing stands basically vacant, leading some to argue for House Lannister to seek to expand its coalition or take the chance to crush the Ironborn and cement Tommen's chances before the Targaryen allies reunite.

Doran Martell:
-Prestige: 7/10
-Gold: 320.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 10/10

-Prince Doran, good day.

-Although the cost was high, food has begun to be shipped to Dorne, sustaining some losses from piracy in the Stepstones. And despite the loss of your son-in-law, a new claimant to the Targaryen Dynasty appears in Prince Aegon, although some - such as Prince Oberyn - distrust his heritage. With confusing reports regarding Queen Dowager Arianne (the maester beside her unsure of a potential pregnancy), how will you handle the matter of the succession?

Euron Greyjoy:
-Prestige: 4/10
-Gold: 1.100.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 7/10

-A series of wise decisions to cement your power have allowed you to seize control over most of the Ironborn Lords and their forces, despite concerns regarding the fate of Lord Blacktyde. Alas, Casterly Rock could not be taken despite the death of Lord Tyrion, and one of your warlocks attempts to tempt you with a different perspective. Despite the death of Viserys and one of his dragons, the other lives and is believed to be hiding on Dragonstone. Will you continue your struggle with the Lannisters, or sail to new horizons?

Khal Drogo:
-Prestige: 10/10
-Gold: 500.000 GD (Plunder)
-Legitimacy: Doesnít Apply

-A much needed pause has allowed your armies to regain full strength, and significantly expand their powers now that sellswords have arrived from Essos to aid your course. Furthermore, with the death of Viserys a key obstacle to Daenerys and Rhaego has disappeared, opening the matter of the succession. Regarding your current hostages, Houses Velaryon, Rykker and Staunton have offered 50,000 GD for each of their lords.

Edric Baratheon:
-Prestige: 6/10
-Gold: 150.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 3/10

-Another of your regents meets a grisly end as Bryce Caron drowns, but Viserys and one of his dragons have left this world. As you stand on Dragonstone with the remains of your armies and fleets your councilors report efforts in the capital have met a positive success, the crowds remaining supportive of the Baratheon legacy against that of the Targaryens. Emissaries from Myr have also secured another fleet for you, now sailing to Westeros. But with Aegon Targaryen seemingly backed by such a large war machine, can you best him for the throne?

Aegon Targaryen:
-Prestige: 1/10
-Gold: 150.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 3/10 (Viserys's heir by will, but unknown to the realm)

-Viserys is dead, and you finally land in Oldtown with large armies placed before you. For the immediate time being the pro-Viserys Reachlords and most of his armies and men seem disposed to follow you as official heir, but with Queen Arianne possibly pregnant the matter f the succession might become complicated. Can you overcome the distrust and the lack of knowledge about you to effectively rally the pro-Targaryen lords?

Randyll Tarly:
-Prestige: 7/10
-Gold: 2.900.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 4/10

-Most of the Reach has finally come to your side through your countless efforts and overtures, Lord Tarly, but with the pretender Aegon landing in Oldtown the pro-Targaryen lords could form an unstoppable army if allowed to gather and unite. Now more than anything the the war in the Reach is at the crossroads as the Dornishmen and Viserys's old troops camp close to you. Will you prove your worth as a soldier and defeat the odds?

Mance Rayder:
-Prestige: 6/10
-Gold: 50.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 9/10

-Successful efforts in defence have allowed you to establish good positions in the castles once belonging to the watch. And yet, the most pressing of all matters has become food as winter sets in the North. A harvest is impossible due to the weather, and some of the freefolk have already began to starve, pressing many into wanting to march North and into Winterfell. What will you do?

Lysa Arryn:
-Prestige: 4/10
-Gold: 450.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 7/10

-The prestige of the Vale is on the rise after a successful battle in Maidenpool and the efforts in Gulltown which weakened the Targaryen fleet, although serious concerns have arised from the unlawful execution of some knights in the Eyrie, and particularly a failed assassination attempt on Lady Sansa via poison. With Lord Royce asking urgently for more men to continue the campaign, will you committ more to the war?

The Blackfish:
-Prestige: 7/10
-Gold: 100.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 5/10

-My condolences, Ser Brynden. With the horrible death of Lady Redwyne and her unborn son you are now the last male Tully. With the Northerners having left for Moat Cailin you sit on The Twins with the army of Lord Blackwood, and with most of the Riverlands free of the Lannisters but without Tully rule having consolidated. What will you do you save your family name? Can you restore Tully rule over the region?

Mid 300 AL: Aftermath:


The Stag in the Iron Throne:

Having recovered from the bloody struggle at the Gullet, the forces of young King Edric Baratheon wasted no time to take advantage of the new situation. Leaving a still sizable force in Dragonstone, the young Stag led the armies lent by Myr and sailed into Blackwater Bay, soon reaching the chaotic and near anarchic King's Landing (which hadn't recovered from the chaos of Drogo's sacking). For a few days the Baratheon armies struggled and fought armed bands across the city, securing street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood.

Soon most of the city was brought into an uneasy control, as despite the work of the gangs (suspected to be led by Sher Shadrich) the crowds were swift to embrace Edric as the Baratheon heir, having kept their support for the long-deceased Renly still. Amidst cheering Edric and his men seized the Red Keep and the Iron Throne, leading to a dramatic scene. Off to the Red Keep rode the Stranger's Knight himself, kneeling before Edric and recognizing him as the true King. Ordered to remove his helmet, the knight revealed himself as the missing Brienne of Tarth, who had donned the armor after the first Stranger's Knight had disappeared to avenge Renly.

Despite the support of the smallfolk the city is still facing hunger, and threats to security have become imminent after Edric was almost poisoned. Some lords of his entourage uncovered the plot before its execution, capturing the young Lady Elia Sand of Dorne as the responsible.

The Khal in Maidenpool:

After selling several captured lords to their Houses, Khal Drogo had rested his forced enough to march. Leaving a small force behind him the Khalassar and the sellsword forces of the Khal swiftly marched towards the east, their sights set on Maidenpool and the weakened forces of Lord Yohn Royce, fresh from a victory against the pro-Viserys forces. With the Khalassar harassing the Valemen and preventing them from an escape General Cime Remys led a shock assault against Lord Royce, heavily outnumbering his forces. Despite a gallant resistance the Knights of the Vale stood no chance due to numbers, and died almost to a man. The head of Lord Royce was delivered before the Khal by Remys himself.

The news proved terrible for the morale in the Vale of Arryn after the deaths of Lord Royce and several leading lords and knights from the area, the blow becoming more critical as terrible news arrived from the Eyrie: Lady Sansa Stark had been poisoned, and was close to death.

The travels of Euron Greyjoy:

Unwilling to continue the bloody struggle against the Lannisters, Euron Greyjoy and the Ironborn prepared to chase a different target. Setting fire to most of Lannisport in a most ruinous way (and killing thousands) the fleets of the Iron Islands sailed towards the east and the Narrow Sea, fighting a large series of naval battles:

Shield Islands raid: Euron readily placed a third of the fleet under the temporary control of Lord Orkwood, ordering a raid towards the Reach fleets still guarding the Iron Islands. Lord Orkwood executed a brilliant series of moves, isolating parts of the Shield Islands to fight them one by one. Within a few days virtually the entire fleet had been captured or sunk, leaving the islands unprotected as Orkwood sailed south.

Oldtown raid: Soon reuniting the fleet while adding several captured Reach vessels, Euron pulled off an even more daring raid, preparing to attack Oldtown by night. Supported by the dark magic of his warlocks Euro struck at the unprepared Targaryen fleet, negating any advantage of them due to the night, the surprise and the Ironborn tactics. For the whole night the Ironborn fought before leaving at dawn, having burned off most of the Targaryen fleets while capturing dozens of vessels for their much enlarged fleet.

Dorne raids: Fresh from the coup at Oldtown, Euron and his fleets sailed east, attacking as many Dornish ships as possible and leading a series of raids across the coastline, managing to burn several areas while facing heavy resistance from the well-prepared Dornish lords. Unable to make more damage the Ironborn then moved to the Stepstones, intercepting several merchant fleets carrying valuable food to Dorne. After such a long struggle Euron finally was forced to halt near Tarth, where his fleet was joined by newly-hired sellsword companies.

Struggles of the North:

Having reached Winterfell to assume his regency Lord Wyman Manderly began to work hard to restore control over the North, securing the support (enthusiastic or north) of virtually all houses for his regency over the young Brandon Stark. In Castle Black King Mance was fighting hard to prevent the demise of his people, enjoying an early success by redoubling hunting efforts and building extra shelter for the wildlings. The news were followed by the news that wildling stragglers in Craster's Keep were requesting urgent support, being under heavy attack from unknown forces.

Around the same time several Baratheon ships arrived in Eastwatch by the Sea, meeting with forces from Mance Rayder  to deliver them a mysterious shipment. The news have been badly received across the North, with several houses severing their ties to the Baratheons in response for what they see as Edric's support of the wildlings. Already House Umber has ambushed and killed a small wildling group, whereas an ambush by House Karstark has resulted in a defeat for the Northerners. It is believe the lords send raven after raven to Winterfell demanding the armies of the North are mobilized to march to Castle Black and put an end to the wildlings.

The Battles of the Roseroad:

Fresh from a victory at Brightwater Keep but facing the double threat of the Dornish armies set to his north and the forces of Aegon Targaryen in Oldtown Lord Randyll Tarly appeared to be lost, more than outnumbered by his many enemies. Unwilling to accept such a situation Lord Tarly took a bold step, increasing his ranks with former prisoners and leaving a few dozen men at his camp to pretend he was still on the area. A night march was started, and Tarly marched south (with the Dornishmen only blocking a march north) with the intention to intercept Aegon.

In the meantime the Dornishmen had sent Queen Dowager Arianne all the way into Oldtown, where she was rapidly married off to Aegon (it was only a few days after the wedding that it became clear she was pregnant from Viserys). Staying behind for a few days Aegon left his forces marching north to ambush Tarly, but unprepared for an unexpected frontal assault. To his merit Tarly outsmarted Lord Connington and the large Targaryen force, taking them by surprise in the Roseroad. Aided by an advantage in numbers and the surprise element, Tarly's vanguard broke through the Targaryen forces to split them, isolating and crushing several separate units. Only the Golden Company refused to broke down, retreating in good order with a portion of the army as Lord Connington found death at the hands of young Dickon Tarly.

Unaware of the battle Aegon had set off from Oldtown after bedding his young bride, meeting the remnants of his retreating army just as Tarly was prepared for a second battle. A bloody struggle ensued as the Targaryen forces attempted to set another line of defence, yet again broken by the Reach forces. The decisive encounter was the third one, fought on the vicinity of Oldtown. It was here that the Golden Company finally broke due to the sustained pressure, allowing the Reach cavalry to sweep in the rear, killing Ser Rolly Duckfield and the royal bodyguards and capturing young Aegon.

Having taken the most valuable of hostages Lord Tarly was forced to halt his exhausted forces outside Oldtown, where the Golden Company (still a fearsome fighting force) locked itself alongside Queen Arianne. Soon afterwards news reached Tarly that the Dornishmen were on the move, having discovered the trick a few days ago. His road to the north was now truly cut off.

Mid to Late 300 AL: Turn Twelve:


Cast:

Regents and Kings:

Edric I Baratheon, Claimant to the Iron Throne (Swedge)
Jaime Lannister, Lord Regent and Lord of Casterly Rock (1184AZ)
Euron Greyjoy, Prince of the Iron Islands (Badgate)
Mance Rayder, King Beyond the Wall (GoTfan)
Drogo, Khal of the Drogo Khalassar (Dkrol)

Across Westeros:

Lysa Arryn, Lady Regent of the Eyrie (X)
Doran Martell, Prince of Dorne (Leonardo)
Randyll Tarly, Lord of Horn Hill (Dereich)

General View:

After a series of dramatic battles across the Reach Lord Randyll Tarly has captured Aegon Targaryen, only to involve himself in a deadly stalemate as the surviving Targaryen forces and the Dornishmen keep him under siege. Edric Baratheon enters King's Landing as the crowds turn to him, and Euron Greyjoy and Khal Drogo continue to strike against their enemies with their full might. Is Westeros getting closer to ending the succession crisis?

Player Crisis:

Jaime Lannister:
-Prestige: 6/10
-Gold: 4.950.000 GD.
-Legitimacy: 10/10

-Ser Jaime,

-The Ironborn have finally left your lands, but at a high cost. Lannisport burns and thousands of Westerlanders are now dead, and at the same time Edric Baratheon rallies many former vassals of House Baratheon to the detriment of Tommen's cause. On the bright side, Lord Tarly has captured Aegon, giving your cause a powerful means to improve your present situation. How is House Lannister to fight the next phase of the war?

Doran Martell:
-Prestige: 6/10
-Gold: 250.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 10/10

-Prince Doran, good day.

-As Aegon is captured and Arianne isolated in Oldtown, you have become the most powerful lord defending the Targaryen banner, and so the lords sword to the dragon look to you for leadership on this critical time. Elia Sand has been captured in King's Landing, your food shipments lost to the Greyjoys and Tarly threatens Oldtown, but you have cut off his escape route with the still large army you have in the Reach. Can you defeat Tarly and bring Aegon back? Or, choose a different road?

Euron Greyjoy:
-Prestige: 7/10
-Gold: 400.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 8/10

-Your prestige and renown across Westeros grows like a legend after your past campaign across the seas, beating the Targaryen fleets and cutting off the food supply of Dorne. After being forced to stop due to exhaustion and damages near the island of Tarth your massive fleet stands ready to fight again, and to carry you wherever your may wish to strike next. Where do you plan to sail to?

Khal Drogo:
-Prestige: 10/10
-Gold: 750.000 GD
-Legitimacy: Doesnít Apply

-Many captured lords are sold back, increasing your funds as the Knights of the Vale and the brave Lord Royce fall victim to your armies. Now that Viserys is dead and Aegon is imprisoned Daenerys's claim to the throne is more relevant than ever, and you stand at an excellent point to strike at your enemies. Where should the Khalassar head to?

Edric Baratheon:
-Prestige: 7/10
-Gold: 200.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 5/10 (has King's Landing)

-You stand in the middle of the damaged Red Keep, supported by the crowds as your retake the capital of the Seven Kingdoms to Baratheon rule. And yet, the city is hard pressed for food as winter arrives, and your enemies continue to hold large forces even as the Crownlands begins to flock with you (and the Stormlands may be close to delivering new recruits soon). On the other hand, your apparent collaboration with the wildlings has enraged the North, costing you an important ally. Can you retain your rule over the city and the Iron Throne?

Randyll Tarly:
-Prestige: 8/10
-Gold: 2.800.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 6/10

-You've smashed the armies of Aegon Targaryen, and captured the Targaryen pretender as your men stop outside the city of Oldtown. Alas, despite this major victory you're still blocked from marching north by the approaching forces of Dorne and the Targaryen lords, placing you at a crossroads. Can you survive this one, lord Tarly?

Mance Rayder:
-Prestige: 6/10
-Gold: 50.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 8/10

Matters grow complicated by the day, as while you've averted mass starvation for the moment you see winter growing harder, and the Northern lords hostile to a point in which your followers demand that you march towards and south and towards what they see as safety. More concerning is the news that wildlings in Craster's Keep and the surrounding areas are under attack, presumably due to those whom you have been escaping from. What will you do, King Mance?

Lysa Arryn:
-Prestige: 3/10
-Gold: 400.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 7/10

-My condolences, lady Lysa, for lady Sansa is not expected to survive the fortnight. A culprit has not yet been found. More bad news come from the south, as Lord Royce and many important knights and lords have been cut down by the forces of Khal Drogo. On the other side, Edric Baratheon now holds King's Landing, and your plans for a statue of your beloved Petyr are going well. As the knights of the Vale demand the remaining forces to the Vale to finally leave the region in aid of Edric, will you allow it?

Mid to Late 300 AL: Aftermath:


The Capture of The Huntsman:

Randyll Tarly had his back up against figurative and literal walls when his forces were met by Oberyn Martell and Barristan Selmy's, and immediately locked into a fierce fight. Tarly had his forces in strong defensive positions and was fighting at a standstill until the Golden Company and the Tyroshi mercenaries took him in the rear once they saw battle had joined. In spite of this, thousands would lie dead before his men attempted to flee, his own generals dispersing into separate units in their attempts to cut free. Quentyn Martell distinguished himself by cornering Tarly and forcing him to submit, though he was nearly slain by the older and wiser man when challenged, and had to be bailed out by Archibald Yronwood. When the day was done, the Reachmen who didn't manage to flee threw down their arms and yielded, providing thousands of captives and mouths to feed. Dickon Tarly was wounded, but managed to flee and with a sizeable group of men is now racing to Highgarden.

Perhaps most importantly of all, Aegon Targaryen was recovered, underfed and abused, but alive.

That night, Oberyn Martell was on the verge of drinking his wine when he noticed a strange aroma drifting from it; it was confirmed to be poison, and the guards reported almost immediately afterward a group of men had been caught trying to break into the holding pen of Randyll Tarly. They admitted under duress they had been bought and paid for by associates from the Vale of Arryn, but it was unclear as to whose exact order it had been.

The Moon of His Life:

There were none to stand in the way of the khalasar as it continued it tyranny throughout the Riverlands; small holdfasts fell fast and easily, and only larger castles and fortresses managed to remain untouched by the horselords, though any remaining crops and smallfolk were raped and pillaged. As they were encamped a few days ride away from Fairmarket, Lord Harroway's town having been sacked the week previous to provide further fuel for his campaign, Drogo was in the midst of having his hair cared for by his khaleesi while being read news of the fall and capture of Saltpans when a crossbow thrum rent through the air, piercing the throat of his silver haired wife. As he held her in his arms and the life leaked out of her, his bloodriders apprehended the man, dressed in the motley garb of a Tyroshi. The man held his tongue even through rigorous torture and now awaits the Khal's wroth.

Upon reaching Fairmarket the Khal was mildly surprised to see banners twirling in the sun bearing a trout...


The Call of the Dragon to The Kraken:

Under the command of Lord Orkwood, the coast along Blackwater Bay and Gullet stretching from Claw Isle to Duskendale were heavily raided by Ironborn. The newly reformed Iron Fleet struck first at the home of House Celtigar; the island offered no resistance aside from the castle itself, which was stormed with light casualties due to its small garrison. The treasures of the ancient house were few but great in value; relics dating back to Valyria were found, mostly trinkets and the greataxe of House Celtigar was not recovered. After a heavy line of questioning however, the Ironborn weedled out the bit of information they were truly sent for: the location of a horn said to call krakens from the deep. Hidden in the tombs of the house's forefathers, a strange banded conch was found incised with strange runes. Grown, iron hard men claimed more than just the ocean could be heard when placing an ear near...

After this conquest, the Iron Fleet assaulted Driftmark. Without sizable garrison, much like Claw Isle this castle fell with little contest. Lord Orkwood allowed those of high enough birth to attempt to parley with the king of salt and rock in person rather than speak directly for his liege, though a raven brought expected news from the isle of Dragonstone, its occupants asking for aid against King Euron Greyjoy and his ironborn.

For it was to the ancient seat of House Targaryen that Euron headed directly. He set his blockade, and the next dawn blew the fiery horn he brought back from his travels. A great cry was heard, of both pain and longing, and it was not long before the form of a great winged beast could be seen. Before he had reached the king's vessel however, a cry of alarm went up from the watching ironborn: a fleet approached on the horizon. In surprise his horn blower broke off early and fell to the deck coughing blood while men raced to battle positions. Within minutes they turned to meet the foe and battle joined.

While he had the numbers, many of the largest warships had gone with the Ironfleet, and his smaller reaving vessels had difficulty at first bringing to heel the great titans of the Royal Fleet. Eventually Edric's fleet was forced to flee, or rather those that remained. 5 ships were boarded and the rest sunk, while the Ironborn took moderate casualties. Only 13 remained at the end of the day with the Baratheon Fleet, limping into Blackwater Bay. At this point Euron abandoned his blockade and retreated to the Whispers to meet with the Iron Fleet.

Later that evening after taking a thrall to bed, Euron Greyjoy awoke to find her loosening his dagger in its sheath. She was drowned soon after, but not before begging forgiveness and claiming to have been a whore in the Vale, chosen and sent by Lysa Arryn herself...

Mid to Late 300 AL: Aftermath(II)Sad


The King on the Wall:

Mance Rayder would not sit idly by and let the frost and worse take surround him; hunting parties in the Gift were mildly successful but are reporting a growing scarceness of game as well as brushes with hunting parties of Northmen. Tormund Giantsbane was given command of a party to scout beyond the wall and round up any straggling free folk. A prominent party led by Mother Mole sent to the area around Craster's Keep was caught in a sudden ice storm and only one managed to return to report back to Tormund. He claims that Craster's sacrifices to the Others have made it a stronghold of dark magic and that it may be impenetrable... There was no sign of the Enemy but the wall's numbers continue to grow as stragglers flee for its safety from the growing cold. Even with the rationing of supplies however, with so many mouths to feed it will be impossible to sustain this large number in so desolate one place for long.

Scouts also report northerners are gathering at several prominent fortresses throughout the North, with word reaching even the wall of a Northern movement to retake the wall...

The Stag on the Barbed Throne:

Edric Baratheon makes an uneasy seat upon the Iron Throne, with many disparate factions still remaining in King's Landing. With an influx of troops from Storm's End however, he manages to keep the peace. The situation with food once more is becoming strained now with so many refugees from the Riverlands and beyond as well as crime being on the rise with so many armed men roaming the Crownlands. A man named Troy and using the surname Darklyn has brought heads he claims are from the Brotherhood loose in the Riverlands, and that with the support of King Edric he will lead the charge to calm the region and place confidence of the riverfolk back in the hands of the throne. He claims to be the last of the line of Darklyn though many think this claim dubious... In return for bringing the Brotherhood down he asks for the rights to hold Duskendale once more after the mercenaries there are ousted.

As news flows in of the battle about Dragonstone, Edric Baratheon collapsed at dinner. He was found to have been poisoned despite drastic measures taken in regards to his security. Maesters have been tending him constantly and he is reportedly out of danger though will remain bed ridden for some time. A knight of the Vale has been taken prisoner who reportedly was in connection to the plot on the young king's life. From his bed, Edric has sworn in Brienne of Tarth to the Kingsguard with a very divided opinion in regards to her appointment.

On a positive note, recruitment in the Crownlands has begun to yield results with just over 500 men having enlisted to fight for King Edric. With Duskendale remaining occupied by Targaryen forces however, these efforts are slowed for the time being.

With action in the Narrow Sea so heavy, it has been difficult for trade ships to secure food contracts from the free cities, though some is beginning to filter in. Ships sent to the Northern lords are being raided and taken over, resulting in no trader willing to make the journey anymore. Food shipments to the wall have been even more scarce as the northerners begin to take to the seas on their new vessels. There are offers of contracts to ship directly to king's landing from Myr, but they are quite pricy.

Late 300 AL: Turn Thirteen:


Cast:

Regents and Kings:

Edric I Baratheon, Claimant to the Iron Throne (Swedge)
Euron Greyjoy, Prince of the Iron Islands (Badgate)
Mance Rayder, King Beyond the Wall (GoTfan)
Drogo, Khal of the Drogo Khalassar (Dkrol)

Across Westeros:

Lysa Arryn, Lady Regent of the Eyrie (X)

General View:

The days continue to grow shorter and the nights colder; trees are starting to become bare and in the North summer snows have become fall storms. Conditions throughout the realm gradually become worse as fading light and continued conflict tear the seven kingdoms asunder. With so much blood having been drawn, will Westeros live to see itself united once more?

Player Crisis:


Euron Greyjoy:
-Prestige: 8/10
-Gold: 550.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 9/10

-The first attempt to claim a dragon has failed, but your victories win you respect from both allies and enemies alike. Your naval power is unmatched, will you use this to secure the seas and rule the coasts, or set your eyes on the mainland?

-You have several captives from your recent battle who are nobly born; will they be given to the sea or ransomed back to their families? Mayhaps they can come to serve a king of salt and rock?

Khal Drogo:
-Prestige: 10/10
-Gold: 800.000 GD
-Legitimacy: Doesnít Apply

-Your heart is empty and aches; your mood swings from depressed and sullen to angry with no warning.  Without your dragon khaleesi, can you find renewed purpose in this foreign land? And more importantly, will you seek vengeance for the death of your beloved?

Edric Baratheon:
-Prestige: 7/10
-Gold: 180.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 5/10 (has King's Landing)

-Your body is weary during your recovery and your mind as well, but you are slowly regaining your strength. As you come back into yourself you are informed that the assassin almost certainly was sent from within the Vale itself. What will you do in regards to this crime of attempted regicide?


Mance Rayder:
-Prestige: 6/10
-Gold: 50.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 8/10

-Craster's Keep has become a haven for dark magic and is strengthening the enemy with its existence. If it were dealth with, the tide of the enemy may be slowed or even halted for a time.
 As it is with such a bastion so close to the wall, no more parties can be sent Westward, denying you
 hunting ground and scouting knowledge.

-The North is almost certainly preparing to flush you out, and the wall will prove nearly impossible to defend from the South. What will you do to assuage the fears amongst your highest councilmen in regards to the threat of the Northmen?

Lysa Arryn:
-Prestige: 3/10
-Gold: 350.000 GD
-Legitimacy: 7/10

-Lady Sansa remains with the living, though your maester says that only a rare commodity from across the narrow sea will be able to save her. It will cost 30,000 GD to make the journey and another 20,000 GD to procure the material. Will you give the green light to save your niece?
