Let the Siege Begin!
 
A few more notes:

Although you're welcome to through out some character concepts, we will be designing the PC's house first, so how that shakes out may affect character concept possibilities.

Valid character concepts will be characters that could be reasonably found in a siege camp - lords and knights, soldiers and maesters, squires and shield-bearers. Noble ladies, courtiers, and such are... unlikely to be there, but depending on the House's set-up and a good backstory, even those are possible.

Although the game is set during and at the Siege of Storm's End during the Robert's Rebellion, the focus will be on the camp, and stuff going on around it - Mace's great feasts, running down other rebel Stormlands' lords, moral-increasing tourneys, securing supply chains, etc...

Hope there's some interest.

Maybe I will finally be able to play a Knight, or something akin.

My only qualm, is if the game is going to be somewhat militarily focused, how do you think people should try and separate their characters in combat?

I would be interested. Although I have never gotten to play the system before, so is a new comer to this game allowed?

I guess I wasn't completely clear then; although this game is certainly in a military setting, it is not going to be all about combat. Characters will still need to navigate the siege camp's command structure, deal with sagging morale, hunt down turncloaks, and convince their commander's to even give them a chance at glory.

Essentially, while yes there may be more than one knight, even if they all focus on sword, shield, and lance, they won't necessarily have the same abilities outside of combat.

If you're willing to learn the rules, I'm willing to help.

I'm not necessarily expecting a high level of system proficiency.

Definitely interested in this one. I vote that we're from the Reach, second choice being the Stormlands.

But Dorneeeee

Fine women and wine!

Yeah I actually don't know why I thought of the Reach off-hand, probably because I'm only partly through ASOS so I haven't "been there" yet. I change my vote to Dorne, at the least I think it will be interesting to come up with why our Dornish house is fighting under Mace Tyrell.

Well, as per canon, I don't think Dorne was really involved in the war. Yah, I don't think they were at all actually.

But we are drifting from canon, so that is fine with me.

I just love Dorne, as it is so different then the common perception of Westeros. Playing female characters is a bit more feasible, since women can come into power like men. And yah, you don't really get to Dorne till A Feast for Crows.

If we do create a house, I might like to claim the spot of either 2nd or 3rd born. Not heir, but at least having some noble blood.

Dorn was very involved in the War.

It was the Dragon, Rose, and Sun battling against the Wolf, Stag, Fish, and Hawk.

The Kraken was the house that sat out during the Uspers war.

Majority of Dornes forces where with the Targaryens, in the northen war. (And likewise at the battle where prince rhyager died.) But I'm sure Dorn had token forces with Mace's army.
