GAME OF THRONES | A MYOC RPG Based on the Books and Show


When you play the game of thrones you win or you die. There is no middle ground.


Sometime in the undisclosed past, a supernatural event occurred to stretch out the seasons in Westeros for years at a time. Legend says that long before men set foot in Westeros it was inhabited by a number of fantastical creatures. Among them were the Children of the forest, who are rumored to have possessed a vast knowledge of magic, and for many a millennia, the Children along with giants, mammoths, and other fantastical creatures had been left mostly undisturbed. When the first men invaded Westeros, an alliance was formed and men were allowed to coexist so long as they left the forested areas to the Children. Shortly thereafter a large 300ft wall of ice was erected in the North to protect the southern lands from barbarian tribes beyond the wall, as well as the mythical undead creatures said to dwell in the northernmost lands where winter never ends. The ancient House of Stark has stood as guardians of the North and allies to the men of the Night’s Watch who devote their lives to patrolling the Wall. 4,000 years later brought the invasion of the Andals from the Eastern continent of Essos, and subsequently the Children of the forest were eventually driven to extinction, the secrets of their magic dying with them. The Andals brought with them a new religion called the Faith of the Seven and shortly thereafter the seven kingdoms were born.


The rise and fall of the Targaryen Dynasty
The seven kingdoms ruled themselves separately until four hundred years ago when Aegon the Conqueror invaded from the East and conquered six of the seven kingdoms with the aid of his two sisters and their three dragons. Only in the Southern most region of Westeros did he meet with any formidable resistance, and it would be centuries before Dorne finally fell to the rule of the Dragon Kings. For the first time in its history, the seven kingdoms of Westeros were united under one banner and from that point on the seven regions as a whole have been ruled from the Red Keep in Kingslanding. Aegon’s dominance bore a new dynasty and the next three hundred years saw the Targaryens rule the seven kingdoms of Westeros. Their Legacy is embodied by the Iron Throne, the seat of the King, and was forged by the breath of a dragon with the swords of Aegon Targaryen’s enemies.

As the years went on, Targaryen dominance over Westeros began to slowly fade. Whether it was the result of a long-standing incestuous bloodline making the Targaryen rulers increasingly insane, or the eventual extinction of their dragons, their demise is a popular subject of debate. In the end it was the young Lord of House Baratheon, a House fiercely loyal to the Targarayens normally, that lead the rebellion against Aerys II Targaryen, dubbed the “Mad King” in lieu of his propensity for public spectacles of brutish torture. When Robert Baratheon took the Iron Throne, he ordered the whole of the Targaryen lineage be purged from the Earth. The two youngest Targaryens fled to the East in exile. The years that followed saw little peace as a number of uprisings occurred in revolt over “The Usurper” sitting on the Iron Throne.

What followed was one of the longest summers ever experienced by Westeros, and as it slowly came to a close, the seven kingdoms were once again rocked by a number of civil wars. Beginning with the deaths of King Robert Baratheon and Eddard Stark of Winterfell, 5 Kings emerged with claims to both the Iron Throne and regional sovereignty. For years, the Great Houses of Westeros warred with one another as power in the capital shifted from the Baratheons to the Lannisters and the Tyrells. With the Starks losing their hold on the north and the rebel kings killing each other off, the seven kingdoms were left devastated and unprepared for the long winter approaching and the supernatural enemy from the north that came with it.


A more recent history
Everyone remembers the winter that followed the longest summer to date. Lasting for nearly eighteen years, winter brought both famine and death, the later taking on a terrifyingly corporal form. Children raised on stories of White Walkers thought to be extinct grew up to fight a nightmare that proved all too real. By the time Daenerys Targaryen rode across the sea on the back of her dragon, much like her former ancestor, she came not as a conqueror but instead a liberator of a people deeply entrenched in winter’s chilly hold. A clash of supernatural forces occurred shortly thereafter. United once again under the Targaryen banner, the seven kingdoms of Westeros, headed by a trio of dragons, finally drove the army of Whites back beyond the Wall in the North.

Today, nearly 60 years after that famous battle dubbed “The Battle of Fire and Ice,” the grandson of the Daenerys Targaryen now occupies the Iron Throne. Westeros has enjoyed a prolonged period of peace and prosperity and has enjoyed a particularly long summer not unlike the summer of Eddard Stark’s beheading some 80 years ago. But as everyone knows, a long summer brings an even longer winter. The Seven Kingdoms have long since grown restless and a shaky alliance between a Targaryen King and a Baratheon Queen currently rules in King’s Landing. Rumor has it that a bastard Targaryen heir is raising an army in the Riverlands and war seems almost imminent. The Seven Kingdoms have a short memory and while people clamor to make new claims for the Iron Throne, an old enemy quietly gathers strength north of the Wall.

“Starks are always right eventually. Winter is coming.”

The Great Houses of Westeros

House Targaryen of King’s Landing
“Madness and greatness were two sides of the same coin and every time a new Targaryen was born, the Gods would toss the coin in the air and the world would hold its breath to see how it would land.”

House words: “Fire and blood”
House sigil: Three-headed dragon
Ruling Domain: The Seven Kingdoms, The Crownlands and Dragonstone
In the recent history of Westeros, no dynasty has been more dominant than the Targaryen dynasty. It was nearly 400 years ago when Aegon the Conqueror rode across the Narrow sea on the back of a dragon, and in the 300 years that followed the Targaryens conquered almost all of Westeros and united the seven kingdoms under their banner. It was the Targaryens that built both the fortress of Dragonstone in the Narrow Sea as well as the Red Keep which serves as the royal palace in King’s Landing. It was also Aegon Targaryen who forged the Iron Throne; the swords of his enemies all gathered and melted by the fire of his dragon, Balerion the Black Dread. The Targaryens are pale with silvery hair and violet eyes, and notorious for maintaining a pure bloodline through incestuous marriages. It was only a hundred years ago that the Targaryens were unseated and exiled after King Aerys was murdered during Robert Baratheon’s rebellion. The Targaryens had been all but wiped out, but for the two youngest Targaryens who fled into exile in the East. In the end it was Daenerys Targaryen who emerged to reclaim the Iron Throne after decades of gaining a following in Essos and with the aid of her three dragons. Daenerys arrived just in time to reunite Westeros against the blight of the Whites invading from beyond the wall in the North. In the decades that followed, the Targaryens struggled to rebuild the war-torn lands of Westeros. Having abandoned the practice of purified bloodlines, the Targaryens arranged a number of shaky marriage alliances. The present Targaryen King is married to a Baratheon Queen; an alliance arranged by both families in an attempt to put their bloodied past behind them for good.

Characters:
The King (Rhys Ifans) dreamboat
Heir Apparent to the Throne (Boyd Holbrook) dreamboat
Daughter: (Jennifer Lawrence) degausser

House Baratheon of Storm’s End
“Do you think it’s honor that keeps them in line? Do you think it’s honor that is keeping the peace? It’s fear! Fear and blood!

House Words: “Ours is the Fury”
House Sigil: Crowned Black Stag
Ruling Domain: The Stormlands
Although the name “Baratheon” is the youngest of the great houses in Westeros, their lineage can still be traced back to the Age of Heroes from 8,000-10,000 years ago in a time of peace that existed before the invasion of the Andals. The name of “Baratheon” first appeared in the form of Orys Baratheon, who served as one of Aegon the Conqueror’s great generals and was speculated to be one of his bastard brothers. The Baratheons were closely tied to the Targaryens for nearly 300 years as their families were joined by blood both on and off the field of battle. Consequently it was also a Baratheon who unseated the Targaryen empire after leading a rebellion against King Aerys Targaryen, and claiming the Iron Throne for his own. The Baratheons are an equally volatile and knavish people, and are often hardy in build with dark hair and light blue eyes. Their fickle and insolent personalities are better suited for waging wars on the battlefield than managing the subtler art of politics. King Robert Baratheon left the Kingdom in debt following his most suspicious death 80 years ago, which it only recovered from in recent decades. Relations between the Baratheons and the Targaryens remained shaky at best in the decades that followed the return of Daenerys Targaryen and the end of the War of Ice and Fire. Two decades ago a marriage was arranged between the Targaryens and the Baratheons in an attempt to right the wrongs of the past. The Lord of the Stormlands is the Queen’s brother; his eldest son serves in the Kingsguard and his youngest son is the heir to Storm’s End.

Characters:
Lady of Storm's End: (Cate Blanchett) degausser
Daughter: (Olivia Thirlby) dreamboat
Heir to Storm's End: (Josh Hutcherson) AtomicEmpress

House Stark of Winterfell
"Let me tell you something about wolves, child. When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives."

House Words: “Winter is coming.”
Sigil: The Direwolf
Ruling Domain: The North
The Stark way is the Old way; they keep the gods of the first men and the children of the forest. Starks trace their history back to the time of the first men in Westeros, who coexisted with the children of the forest before the Andals invaded from the south to conquer the southern lands. Their house words are unique in that they are not a boast but rather a warning that good times, like summer, are fleeting. It was a Stark that built the 300 foot wall that protects most of Westeros from the land of never-ending winter, and it is the Starks that have served as Wardens of the north, protecting the South from wildling tribes beyond the wall. The Starks are pale skinned with dark hair and darker expressions. They value honor and truth above all things, often to the detriment of their own well-beings. The Stark name suffered its fall from grace after Lord Eddard Stark was declared a traitor to the realm and subsequently executed; his eldest son, Robb Stark, led a rebellion during the War of the Five Kings. As Robb led his large northern host in the direction of King’s Landing, the North fell from their control, their fortress was sacked, while the remaining members of House Stark were either killed off or forced into hiding. It has only been in recent decades that House Stark has been able to piece itself back together, beginning with heading the war effort against the invasion of the Whites and ending with the reconstruction of Winterfell. Today House Stark has been reinstated as the principle Great House of the North, although it is a shadow of its former glorious self.

House Lannister of Casterly Rock
“I will hurt you for this. A day will come when you think you are safe and happy, and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. And you will know the debt is paid.”

House Words: “Hear me roar.”
House Sigil: The Lion
Ruling Domain: The Westerlands
Great house of the Westerlands and the wealthiest of Houses in all the Seven Kingdoms, the Lannisters seat their house atop a literal goldmine under their fortress of Casterly Rock, and they serve as Wardens of the West. Although their official house motto is “Hear me roar,” the more common, unofficial expression associated with the Lannisters is “a Lannister always plays his debts,” for they are a fortuitous ally to have at one’s back as well as one’s coin purse. On the flip side of that coin, a Lannister never forgets when he has been wronged. Cross a Lannister and spend the rest of your days sleeping with one eye open. Known for being as clever as they are ruthless and brave, the Lannisters have always kept themselves close to the throne in one form or another. Whether serving as Hand of the King or ruling the whole of the Seven Kingdoms, the Lannisters always seem to be in the right place at the right time, though anyone would be a fool to believe their good fortunes are accidental happenstances. The Lannisters make their own luck. With fair skin and full heads of golden hair, the Lannisters are regal predators, and do not require an iron throne to validate their dominance. The man who truly rules the ream is the man who has the realm in his pocket. Long after the Lannisters left King’s Landing the Kingdom was still millions of septoms in their debt, and so the Lannisters remain influential to the King’s council. Today, another Lannister serves as Hand of the King, his children groomed for a matrimonial union with the royal family.

These are some of the other House blurbs I have written up over the course of several games. Should any of them get more than one member, I will happily edit them into the first post. Some of them might require a bit of editing depending on what people end up doing with the houses. And of course if multiple members of any of the other many Houses of Westeros become involved in the game, I am also happy to create a new House blurb for them.

Em: I put you down for Maegor if only because I can't imagine anyone else playing the King in this generation. If you want me to take him out, just let me know.

If anyone needs any links to the previous games for quick access to old profiles, I'd be happy to provide that as well. I was even thinking of writing up a short one or two sentince description of each of the eight counting the Riverlands Seven Kingdoms if people feel that would be at all helpful.

House Greyjoy of Pyke
“What is dead may never die, but rises again, harder and stronger.”

House words: “We do not sow”
House Sigil: The Kraken
Ruling Domain: The Iron Islands
They Greyjoys hold dominion over the Iron Islands to the west of Westeros in Ironman’s Bay. The Overlord of the Iron Islands holds the title of “King of Salt and Rock, Son of the Sea Wind, Lord Reaper of Pyke.” Their words are “we do not sow” because as islanders they do not farm but instead reave along the western shores of Westeros. The Iron Born do not believe in buying or inheriting their riches; they pay the Iron price instead and take their riches by force. At the height of their power the Iron Born’s reining dominion extended into the Riverlands of Westeros until their stronghold of Harrenhal was burned to a charcoaled ruin by Aegon the Conqueror and his three dragons. Consequently the Greyjoys have always remained isolated from the other Great Houses of Westeros, refusing to take part in events on the mainland and never engaging in warfare unless it is orchestrated in their own favor in order to reassert their independence from the Seven Kingdoms. The Greyjoys are a hardened people with dark hair and dispositions as salty and unforgiving as the Drowned God they worship. Several times the Greyjoys have lead ill-fated rebellions against the Crown, the last rebellion nearly resulting in the complete death of House Greyjoy and its few remaining heirs. Today the Greyjoys continue to remain mostly withdrawn from the rest of the Seven Kingdoms; their strength slowly and painfully rebuilt over the past few decades. They continue to reave the Western shores quietly, biding their time until a most opportune moment might arise where they can once again assert their absolute independence from Westeros.


House Tyrell of Highgarden
“Soon enough all the power of The Reach will be marshaled against us, and then you may learn that some roses have steel thorns.”

House Words: “Growing strong”
House Sigil: The golden rose
Ruling Domain: The Reach
House Tyrell rules over the most fertile region of Westeros and are amongst the wealthiest of houses, second only to the Lannisters. The Reach is the home of chivalry, their Knights amongst the most revered and disciplined in all the seven Kingdoms. Their castle of High Garden sits along the bank of the river Mander and is renowned as being a cultural venue for music and art. As much as they are known for their cultivation of beauty, the Tyrells are equally known for their military prowess. With one of the largest standing armies in the seven Kingdoms, they serve as Wardens to the South, and can often make or break a rebellion depending on which side they happen to favor. The Tyrells were instrumental in defending the Red Keep from Stanis Baratheon’s invasion during the Battle of the Blackwater, and they would again prove valuable during the invasion of Whites from the North. With light brown curly hair and golden eyes, the Tyrells are as fair in beauty as they are ambitious and shrewd. They understand the virtue of patience and play a slower game of thrones than most. Some might even call them opportunists, though never to their faces. Nevertheless, House Tyrell always manages to be on the right (or rather: winning) side of history. It’s only in the recent century that they’ve managed to procure important council seats in Kings Landing and at one point a Tyrell sat next to the King as his Queen.. Today the Tyrells remain high spirited and sit proudly on their seat in Highgarden. They remain strong and powerful allies of the Iron Throne.

House Martell of Sunspear
“Do you see that white one, Quentyn? That is Nymeria’s star, burning bright, and that milky band behind her, those are ten thousand ships. She burned bright as any man, and so shall I.”

House Words: “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken”
House Sigil: Gold Spear piercing a Red Sun
Ruling Domain: Dorne
When Aegon the Conqueror flew to Westeros with his three dragons he was able to secure six of the seven kingdoms with little trouble. The one Kingdom that eluded him was the southernmost Kingdom of Dorne. Dorne had been a kingdom of feuding city-states until a foreign warrior princess named Nymeria fled Essos and took one of the strongest Lords in Dorne for her king. Together Nymeria and King Mors Martell united Dorne under their strength. It would be two centuries after Aegon Targaryen landed in Westeros before Dorne would finally be united with the other six kingdoms by way of marriage to another Targaryen. Ironically enough, the Martels would become one of the Targaryen’s most loyal subjects in the end. Unfortunately that loyalty bought them great tragedy during Robert’s Rebellion. After King’s Landing was sacked Princess Elia Martell and her two young children were murdered in the Red Keep in an effort to kill off the last of the Targaryen heirs. During the Usurper’s reign Dorne remained mostly isolated from the rest of the Seven Kingdoms, biding their time until they could take their vengeance against those responsible for the brutal deaths of Elia and her children. The Martells are the only Great House in Westeros that stylize themselves with the title of Prince or Princess, and they are also the only House that allows women to inherit titles and land in the line of succession. Today the Martells remain on the periphery of Westerosi politics, though they remain closely allied with the Targaryens and are arguably their most loyal allies.

House Tully of Riverrun
“Did you teach him wisdom as well as valor, Ned,” She wondered. “Did you teach him how to Kneel? The grave yards of the Seven Kingdoms are full of brave men who had never learned that lesson.”

House Words: Family, Duty, Honor
House Sigil: A leaping trout
Unlike the other Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms, House Tully has never ruled their own Kingdom. Not one of the colloquial “Seven Kingdoms” themselves, the Riverlands are more of an unofficial eighth Kingdom. House Tully is an old and ancient House that traces its lineage back to the First Men and served the Kings of the Trident prior to the War of Conquest. They would rise to prominence after joining their host to Aegon the Conqueror’s when he began his campaign to conquer the Seven Kingdoms, beginning with his campaign against King Harren the Black at Harrenhal. This pledge of loyalty earned them dominion over the Riverlands and the title of Lords Paramount of the Trident. The lack of natural boundaries has left the Riverlands vulnerable to conquest from the West and South, and thus the site of many battlegrounds. Marriage alliances thus became a strategic tactic employed in order to secure protection from neighboring Kingdoms looking to absorb territory in the Riverlands into their own Kingdoms. The Riverlands are also amongst the most fertile in the Seven Kingdoms, often responsible for feeding the whole of the realm. Members of house Tully tend to have auburn hair and light blue eyes. Family is, above all else, important to a Tully. Centuries of fending off attempted conquest from Westernlanders and the Iron Born has taught them humility and the value of learning when to kneel as well as when not to.


House Arryn of The Eyrie
“The Eyrie is impregnable. You saw for yourself. No enemy could ever reach us up here.”

House Words: As high as honor
House Sigil: Falcoln and crescent moon
High above the Vale atop a mountain peak known as the Giant’s Lance sits the Eyrie, seat of House Arryn. Their fortress towers high above the valley and is said to be impossible to penetrate. Located on the eastern shores of Westeros, the Vale itself is a diversified land of jagged mountains and fertile valleys and rivers, all guarded by the Mountains of the Moon to the west. With olive complexions and auburn hair, the Arryns are similarly known as much for their honor as they are their stubbornness and resilience. Theirs is one of the most ancient and purest line of Andal descent and the Arryns can trace their lineage back to the original Andal invasion. Men of the Vale have a long tradition of being very skilled at arms. Their warriors are amongst the most devout, known to be fervent followers of the Faith of the Seven. The skill of their knights is often unrivaled save for maybe the knights that come out of The Reach, making them amongst the most revered of warriors in all the seven kingdoms. The isolated nature of both their region and their seat often makes travel difficult outside the Vale, and for the most part the Arryns like to keep to their rule in the Vale, generally finding the underhanded politics of the capital to be unseemly. Occasionally they are called upon to make the descent from their fortress in the sky to come serve the realm in King’s Landing. It was an Arryn that was King Robert Baratheon’s first Hand and more recently another Arryn has returned to King’s Landing to claim a seat on the current King’s small council.

A couple of links for convenience.

Historical Played Bys: - A list of Medieval, Renaissance and Fantasy PBs.
ASOIAF Fancasting Resource - A very comprehensive list of fancasting PBs for the series which can be used here if need be.
Dornish Played Bys: - a comprehensive list of Played Bys specific to Dorne

A Wiki of Ice and Fire - A comprehensive Wiki for the book series. There are spoilers here for the books, though if you are a show only viewer it is probably safe to view at this point.

These family relations were formed by way of events from the previous game:

The newest generation of Houses Baratheon and Targaryen are cousins by way of a Baratheon Queen and Targaryen King union
The newest generations of Houses Tyrell. Lannister and Stark are cousins by way of marriage. Lady Stark and the former Lady of Lannister were both born as Tyrells.
The newest generation of Houses Baratheon and Tully are cousins by way of a Tully marrying the Lord of House Baratheon.
Houses Targaryen and Martell are related as the King and his twin sister's mother was a Martell. The newest generation of both Houses would thus be cousins once removed (I think )

I'll be back with everything later, but I had a question. If a noble house is in the Crownlands, which house are they tied to?

Can someone pick up a guy character for me? I'm barely functioning on the creative front, aside from potential new game ideas. Unless someone needs a storyline and I can ressecurect a character I made but never played before, I can only do Iliara Waters.

There's no boy/girl rule.

A House in the Crownlands would be directly subject to the authority of the Targaryens.

Pammie, do you want me to officially list Alissa under House Lannister now? Or put her under House Tyrell?

Fiiiine, I'll keep Maegor. Maybe he'll be easier to play this round now that I know what a **** he was in his youth.

You can always just shelf him. Or do what I'm doing, which is just providing a profile but for the most part NPCing them through other characters.

So long as Leigha remains MIA, #TybaltLives.

Name: Lord Tybalt Lannister
Age: Forty-Nine
House: Lannister; Lord of Casterly Rock, Shield of Lannisport, Warden of the West and Hand of the King
Theme Song: Red Right Hand by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
Personality: Calculating, Uncompromising, Ambitious, Rational and Perceptive
Three Life Facts:
- Born the second son of a second son, it was never in the cards for Tybalt Lannister to rule as Lord of one of the Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms and so any glory he hoped to attain in life would have to be attained through his own tenacity and fortitude. He would pursue a number of different venues in an effort to carve out some place in history for himself. Knighthood seemed the obvious choice for a boy of eleven and ten and so he started out as a squire for Ser Alistair Whent of the Kingsguard. Not four moons had passed following his eventual Knighthood at the age of ten and six before he abandoned that path in life for one centered instead on wisdom and study. Tybalt would go on to apprentice at the Citadel in Oldtown, going so far as to forge several links of a Maester’s change, before deciding the life of a Maester was too tedious and mundane for his liking in the end.
- A series of unrelated events moved Tybalt up in the line of succession with his uncle dying childless during a spring sickness, his father in a tourney mishap and later his older brother fending off an Iron Born raid. His fickle youth came to an abrupt end with duty to his family and people taking precedence over the frivolous recreations that once occupied the majority of his time. Despite his youthful capriciousness, there was no denying that when Tybalt did commit to something, he excelled at it beyond all expectation. In time he would become known for having a well-rounded mind for military warfare and true to his Lannister name, a natural gift for money handling as he managed to refill Casterly Rock's depleting coffers through a number of advantageous trade agreements made with the Free Cities of Essos. By the age of twenty-four he was serving as Master of Coin in King's Landing, happily married to a beautiful Tyrell of Highgarden and the proud father of a son. Tybalt's future could not have been brighter.
- Upon the death of the former King, Tybalt's childhood friend and heir-apparent to the throne dismissed the former Hand of the King and elevated Tybalt in his place. The Seven Kingdoms have enjoyed a prosperous and relatively peaceful era under the rule of the King and his loyal Hand, with any murmur of rebellion generally squashed under the iron heal of the Lannister army or with the mere whisper of the word dragon fire. Yet for every spoil of favor and good fortune Tybalt has enjoyed, he has suffered his fair share of tragedy from having outlived two of his children and suffered the loss of his most beloved wife. Ambition and greed have hardened him over the years and whatever warmth remained to Tybalt was cruelly snuffed out with the death of Lady Lorene Lannister. The Lord of Casterly Rock is but a shell of his former self, cold and uncompromising with his subjects, but even more so where his own family is concerned. Some have even observed a growing strain between the Hand and his King with the former relentlessly pushing to join their two houses in matrimony. Without his beloved wife around to ground him, Tybalt has become singularly obsessed with but one goal: to see a Lannister once more on the Iron Throne.

Do we want Alissa and Damon to have already married or not yet?

I'm always up for storylines. My character has brothers and sisters, but she could also use allies and former lovers.

Name: Iliara Thorne
Age: 19
House: Thorne sworn to the Targaryens.
Theme Song:
Personality: Rebellious, unconventional,intelligent,giving and compassionate


Three Life Facts:

-Iliara realized that she liked women at a fairly young age. She was always more attached to her friends than they were to her and never grew out of the phase where she thought boys were icky. She's able to note when one is handsome, but no man has evoked the kind of feeling and passion that women give her. She was recently caught with a lord's daughter and her mother wants to marry her off to an old man.

-Iliara has more than a soft heart. She has a soft spot for underdogs and tried to give as much as she could. She's always swayed by someone's sad story and wishes she could save the world from pain and suffering.
-Iliara's father isn't her father. Her mother had an affair with the king while she was betrothed to another. Her father was never cruel to her,but while he allowed her to be herself,he was much harder on her than on her younger siblings. It was obvious that his children could get away with murder, but she'd be banished.

Letty, I'll bring him out if he's ever necessary for something. Like glaring at adult Rosamund.

You'll have to send him to Storm's End for the wedding then probably.

I will probably hold off on Daena in the meantime then.
