    I'm really not sure about setting it during the rebellion, especially not at the trident. Although it was never written in itself there is a canonised series of events that happened.

    Also its major plus point is its major downfall. We never met Rhegar. How one person portrays him is likely to be entirely diffferent from somebody else. Its like portraying someone elses character. You have to know the person and the character really well before you can do that, and unfortunately I don't think that either of us could claim an intimate knoledge of GRRM or Rhegar.

    I really do think that a best option would be to set the game maybe two or three years before GoT. All the hosilities of the noble houses are present as well as the political climate being one that we are familiar with without anyone having to have read the later books. This would be my choice, however i'm willing to have a vote and will play whatever is decided by the story teller type person (LDH).

    I haven't read any books other than GoT, so I don't really have much of an opinion on where we start. However, it would be nice to avoid any spoiling of the later books, seeing how I have a desire to read them later.

    5 sounds good, we could pretty much have free reign here, but I also like 2 beginning of AGoT! But I'm with everyone else, I'm game either way!

    I'm going to wait for other opinions before I make a decision, but I just think that the major problem with setting something a few years before GoT is that there isn't anything major going on. If we did the Night's Watch thing or when Aegon I conquers Westeros, you don't really need to know too much about the 2nd and 3rd books, because very little info is provided. And I'm just uneasy about using GRRM's characters in our RPG. (Hope what I'm saying is making sense, because I'm really tired right now... :p)

    Lol, I'll start writing up a starter for it, and then post it here for opinions. If it's approved, I'll send it on to Nienor. :)

    Lol, I've been working on it - I decided to write up three possible scenarios (one for when Aegon invades, another for right before GoT, and the third for when Daeron the Young Draogn invaded Dorne). Should be finished sometime soon.

    After researching the Conquest of Dorne, I decided it was too much work and just wrote up two. p

    Scenario 1: Fire and Blood


    Long ago, centuries before Aerys II was slain and Robert Baratheon took the crown, the Targaryens came from across the narrow sea to win a kingdom for their own.

    Aegon, Visenya, and Rhaenys are the dragon’s three heads, come to conquer and rule… come to bathe Westeros in fire and blood.

    But the Seven Kings are determined to retain their thrones. With thousands of men flocking to their banners, they begin planning for a war. And so the kingdoms the North, the Rock, the Reach, Mountain and Vale, the Storm King, the Iron Islands and the Riverlands, and Dorne prepare to set themselves against Aegon, oblivious of the existence of Meraxes, Vhagar, and Balerion. For both human and real dragons shall change the fate of Westeros as Aegon’s invasion of Westeros begins.

    Let the feast for crows begin.




    Scenario 2: Lords of Westeros


    Fifteen years after Aerys II was slain and Robert I took the throne, Westeros lies under an uneasy truce. The last conflict had been Balon Greyjoy’s Rebellion, and the smallfolk rested content, sure that their land’s internal turmoil had finally come to an end.

    Yet, although there is no longer open war, the Great Houses continue to intrigue against each other. Starks and Lannisters, Martells and Tyrells… Westeros seethes with potential violence.

    The Lords of Westeros stand poised to seize the advantageous opportunities before them in an effort to raise their Houses to ascendancy. But will their choices bring true peace to the land… or will they plunge Westeros into a war to rival Aegon I’s conquering of the Seven Kingdoms?

    I agree with Sen, the first one sounds better. More action packed, as well.

    OK, that's the one I wanted to do anyway, so I'll clean it up a bit and send it on to Nienor.

    Hm, maybe we should get more ideas and characters worked out first, no point making another RPG if its going to be as dead as all the others.

    Uh-oh... I already PMed Nienor. :eek:

    Anyway, thanks Ilaelin... if we're lucky, we can have the RPG up and running in a few weeks.

    As for ideas and characters, we could just be various nobles/soldiers in the different armies - I want to be a Dornish woman. :D
