    Alanna sends a raven to the commander of the Arryn host approaching Lord Harroway's Town. In response, a scouting party breaks off and heads to north, in search of the Lord Greyjoy.

    Alanna finished conducting business in the Eyrie and makes the descent back down the mountain. An escort of 1000 mounted knights and soldiers accompany her west through the Bloody Gate.

    The crashing of the ram went on for what seemed hours, the booming thuds heard across the city. Covered from attack by its heavy shell the tutrle wore away the gate.

    Meanwhile the lannister archers and siege weaponry made dent's in the defender's efforts to repel them, now and again rocks from the walls would crash away, bodies hurled into the streets by the carnage. Men sprouting feathers and fountains of blood. Covered by wooden shields the archers facing the walls were safe but for their own carelssness and the heavy siege equipment on the other side of the walls.

    The rest of the men and cavalry were poised, holding their breaths, like a notched arrow, waiting for the gate to fall.

    The ram went on, pounding and pounding, wood creaking, groaning, splitting.

    there was a crash, and another, and another.

    Finally the gate groaned as it both opened and fell apart. And then the attack began.

    Ram was wheeled away, the half the bearers rushing in to certain doom to have the defenders kept off guard.

    Cavalry rushed to the walls and in through the narrow passage. foot following.

    The tide more than the meagre garrison could hold back, blood fell in rovers on both sides and in many ways, the streets flowed with crimson.

    crimson blood and crimson banners.

    Robert was devestated when the gates broke open, it was time to act.

    Rallying his men, he ran [rode] at the Lannisters, hitting them off guard, cutting them into ribbons

    Edric looks eastward and see's his destination, from that far away Harranhal looked almost small but as he rode towards it Harranhal seemed to grow at an incredible rate. As he rode through the gates only the wind was there to greet them. That night the sun set behind the Stag fluttering above the castle.

    The last troops off the field set fire to the trebuchets and the turtle, to prevent the enemy from taking them up. The lannister host riding through the small gate with ungodly speed.

    At the forfront, riding parties went out about the city, taking down the watch patrols, securing the walls and the gates, ready to ride up to the red keep for the final onslaught.

    Behind them, at the gate the Tyrells made a push, the men caught out at the back were killed, hundreds of straggling camp followers and men at arms, the slow and the weak left back in the crush of bottlnecked troops as they went into the city.

    Tytas lannister knew what to do, and like a festering limb, there was only one course of action.

    the pikemen were ordered to form up in the archway and bar the gates to anyone, leaving hundreds of lannitser troops out in the field in battle with the Tyrells.

    As the fight went on, Archers took they place on the walls and notched their bows.

    In the late afternoon, the sim light of the low sun was almost blocked by the rain of feathers and steel than came down upon Tyrell and lannister alike.



    Already, elsewhere in the army, preparations were being made to block up the gate, nearby buildings were brought down and rubble was piled up amongst the arches, rocks and paving slabs, anything to keep out further attackers.

    The cargo boats traveled swiftly down the Blue Fork, their goods all been replace by men, and they were already upon Lord Harroway's Town, carrying only one-third of the army at Farmarket.. When the small force descended upon the town, they met no resistance, it seemed the numbers were enough to quell any thoughts of resistance. Lord Fallorian Greyjoy offered the town's local leader the same agreement as he had at Farmarket. The people worked and lived as they did before, but now it was under Greyjoy rule. The boats travelled back to Farmarket, to bring the rest of the men.

    Lord Harroway's town was a great tactical position, as it had all the major routes junctioned in its centre. This was good news for the Lord Fallorian, he held a good position here. The young Greyjoy then waited patiently for the Lady Alanna Arryn.

    10,000 Arryn foot soldiers have made camp outside of Lord Harroway's town, awaiting the arrival of their leige Lady.

    Two days later, Alanna Arryn arrives, clad in riding leathers, mud sticky on her boots and hair windblown. It was in this state that she met for the first time the Lord Fallorian Greyjoy. What her betrothed thought when he saw her she knew not, though he had little enough time to think it.

    At sunset the local Septon gave the couple the Seven's blessing, and just like that House Greyjoy and House Arryn were joined together.

    My troops are splitting up, setting themselves up at all available high, easily defended places. They shoot arrows at the Lannister soldiers arriving, killing as many as possible. Some of the Lannister soldiers' uniforms are not too blood-stained, and those are taken by my soldiers. They infiltrate the Lannister host, secure in the knowledge that in such a large army, a few more will not be noticed. 1000 hold the castle, garrisoned and ready for a siege.

    My second contingent of 2000 soldiers arrive and joins with the Alliance host outside the gates.

    Aboard the ship the lookout in the crowsnest cries "We have passes Crackclaw point!"
    The firstmate goes below and wakes the captian
    "What did you wake me for?"
    "Sir, you asked to be woke when we passed Crackclaw point."
    "Oh that's right, set a course due west immediately. I don't want to keep the troops from Lord Edric any longer than we need to."
    "Aye-aye Captian"
    __________

    Meanwhile at Storm's End a raven arrives with orders to dispatch 3000 foot 1000 cavelry and 1000 archer to the Bronze Gate.

    The Tyrell host sneaks into King's Landing, cutting down the Lannister's who remain in the field, and who are stupid enough to attack.

    Flooding in, they see their reinforcements in the distance, and Robert Tyrell smiles, as he shoves his sword into a spearmen's throat.

    Supplies dangerously low, Tully forces wait until the middle of the night to slip out in many boats on the river. They silently slip downstream, a few small groups leaving for supplies and minor Lord's homes. The soldiers come back up on the opposite side of the bank towards the Lannister encampments. Taking out the drowsy sentries first, they attack the camps from all side peppering them with arrows, and lighting the tents on fire as they go, . The majority of them men make it back to the boats in the complete confusion, rowing back to the water doors.

    tytas lannisters busily issues commands, 500 mountes knights raced through the streets of kings landing to the guild of alchemists cutting down anyone who stood in their way.

    The thousands of lannister footmen take up torches and set alight to any buildings they pass as they retreat back to the gates, archers use fire arrows to the same effect.

    tytas sends ravens out to all his troops across westeros issuing an immediate order for all lannister forces to retreat to lannisport, where supplies and gold are to be loaded onto ships.


    As the mounted knights reach the guildhall, they go inside and cut down the members, searching furiously for any jars of wildfire being made. After half an hour 300 knights leave carrying jars full of green fire.

    As the last 200 collect up more jars, one foolish soldier drops his armfull, the smashing clay gushing tongues of green fire. the whole building explodes in a gout of emerald fury, killing all inside.

    The remaining 300 rush through the city, throwing jars into the building as they go, setting more green inferno's across the city before they proceed out of the lion gate to join the rest of the retreating lannister forces.

    Tytas lannister looks back on King's Landing.

    "Have it then you fools, have every burning ember, I am done with westeros."

    Robert's horse shoots towards the gate, without much of Robert's consent. But he couldn't blame the horse. The Green flames were ingulfing Flea Bottom, and soon the Red Keep. It wouldn't be safe to stay much longer.

    Most of the Tyrell and allianced soldiers are out of King's landing to see it burning.

    "I hated the damned lice ridden poxy whored city anyway." Robert said as he watched the flames dance. "A new city will serve better, no doubt.

    My soldiers are quickly trapped by the rising flames. Panicking, they run heedlessly away from the fires, only to realise that the fire is spreading faster than they can run. The gates are blocked, they choke on the black smoke billowing around, they scream as they realise there is nowhere to go other than into the green, hellish fire. Some escape the city, making it to the river and a few struggle out at the opposite bank, scarcely believing that they have escaped from the inferno. Across the Blackwater, those few survivors watch as the city they captured succombs to the pyromancer's evil substance, towering green flames claiming the lives of their fellows and friends and incinerating their bodies until not even ashes remain. Long will they remember their ill-fated and short-lived possession of the greatest city in the Seven Kingdoms.

    Robert's face was green in the glow of the Wildfire. Smiling slightly, he rode away from burning town. "Jon," He said to one of his head advisors "Find out about some architects. I want to start the design of King's Landing as soon as i can. And i want this Iron Throne to be a bit more comfortable."

    Days of heavy marching at quick pace brought the lannisters all the way to lannisport. the time had been trying but they had pressed on, leaving behind the slow and the wounded. By that time the ships headed south had returned, so had the survivors from riverrun. The strength of lannister was all here.

    twenty thousand men were left to guard the westlands, ample enough to hold the narrow mountain passes that defended the lion's den. The rest went with their lord.

    All the gold an supplies that could be mustered, millions of golden dragons dug from the mountains and the rest of the lannister strength at arms went aboard the lannister fleet. the ships sprading out as far as the eyes could see.

    When morning came they set out and left the shores of westeros, heading south.

    Robert smiled when he heard the news. The Lannister's had left Westros! They now had no one opposing the throne. But what were the Lannister's planning?

    Lord Edric's Fleet arrived at Saltpans. That night the town was packed, but nobody seemed to mind the soldiers just wanted some drink which the town was happy to supply. The force's commander sat in the back room of an inn with his officers trying to join in on the fun that everyone else seemed to be having, but the memories of the last time House Baratheon musterd a force this big came flooding in. He slammed his mug on the table, silence fell across the room. "Enjoy tonight, because it's going to be a long time before we see peace like this again." The next morning they started there march to Harrenhal.

    They had good bows, Tytas gave them that, but otherwise nothing could stop the onslaught of the lannister troops, Heavy cavalry and an organised military force had never been waged this far out since the days of old Valyria.

    Tall trees town lay a smoking ruin, Tytas was beginning to enjoy utting cities to the torch.

    the first stop on their exodus, just beyond the southern shores of westeros were the summer isles. Warm weather, sweet expensive wine, finely crafted woodwork, all ripe fr the taking.

    by now their other forces would be storming towns and villages across the isalnd chain, raping and pillaging, looting and burning. It was a magnificent sight to behold.

    ____________________________________

    in the end the fighting lasted for days after the initial battles, pockets of resistance were found time and time again, and by the end the land was awash with blood, thousands were captured and the Isles belonged to the lannisters.

    A thousand men were left to hold the lands, and any natives worth their time were left to work, grow food, and roduce all the tradable goods they could find.

    The lannisters took the rest captive aboard the fleet, now doubled with the additon of the tall masted swan ships and any traders found in the area.

    As they set out once more, Tytas stood poudly on the deck, enjoying the captured wine of the summer isles.

    "Where to next my lord?" addressed the ship's captain.

    Tytas smiled as he looked over the bounty they had reaped here. "Slaver's bay of course"
