    Kk, I'll go post it up.

    My dear Crusader, how would you like it if in my next post, I invited Katri to kill Niamh? Without you letting you have any of it? :p

    No backstabbing.

    Because I have the power here. And I'm using it. :D :D :D You REALLY want to kill Niamh, don't you?

    Besides, if you're even thinking about backstabbing me, I may very well leave the alliance and form one with Lya. She's less likely to betray me. :p

    *smiles sweetly* You'd better play by my rules then. Because if you don't, I swear that I WILL have Niamh commit suicide in her next post. :)


    @ Imrhi: Ny has Riverrun; if you look at the "Status of the Seven Kingdoms" thread, it'll have info on everything. Speaking of which, I oughta' update it with battle news.

    Go ahead. I'll do it, honey.

    I'll let her know, then. Btw, Imrhi, what are you claiming for your own?

    Hahaha, that'd be awesome.

    Btw, we need to determine how many men each can raise - THIS, at least, needs to be strictly kept to the books, but we don't have all that much info on this... bleah. I'm assuming that the North can raise twenty-five thousand; if someone has better info than I do (yay for not being able to reread CoK or SoS), let me know.

    Ok then if I can't have Riverrun, I'll go for The Eyrie, at least I can easily protect it while looking for other possibilities.

    OK I'll take Sunspear, that's if no one else has got that yet. :)

    I've been researching host numbers and here is what ive come up with so far. These figures are as at AFFC

    City watch: 4400
    Nights Watch - 589

    And this is what I have found on Westeros so far.

    Jaime had 12,000 foot and 2-3k horse. Tywin had an army roughly 20k strong, of which 9k was horse. That gives 11-12k horse and 23k foot, for a total of 35k with a rather remarkable 1.9:1 foot to horse ratio. And Ser Stafford was raising another host, say 15k strong, for 50k -- but that last part was the sweepings, as they said, and left the various castle garrisons very weak. GRRM says the Lannisters are the second strongest in land strength, and I suspect this is primarily because the wealth allows them to have a very large mounted force. Also, the pikemen and City Watch from Lannisport are very well trained, probably the most disciplined feudal foot levy in the Seven Kingdoms.

    Finally, he also puts them pretty high in strength at sea, and they've largely recovered from the burning of the fleet in Lannisport. The Lannisters have 20 or 30 cogs, carracks, galleys, and dromonds at Lannisport, and can call their various coastal bannermen to bring ships (each has 2 or 3 to patrol their waters, plus maybe three-six longships).. Say they⦣8364;™ve got 50 or 60 big ships in total, presuming they'd retain longships for the purpose of coastal defense while the big craft are on the offensive. We suspect that the Farmans of Fair Isle probably provide a decent percentage of the bannerlords' share.
