A Rite of Conquest
A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying Game

IC

Image



Summary

The Century of Blood is coming to an end. Westeros remains divided and split among the various Kings all competing for power. The King of the North, The Rock, The Vale, The Stormlands, The Reach, Dorne, The Iron Islands and Riverlands. This will soon change, as the Targaryens the last of the dragons of Valyria consult their power on Dragonstone an island in Blackwater Bay. The current Dragonlord, Aegon Targaryen remains conflicted between unifying the chaotic realm of Essos and creating a New Valyrian Empire or perhaps a greater prize in the West.

Hold your sword close to you, for the game of thrones will begin. Will you beat back the foreign invader and remain King? Or will you fall to Fire and Blood?

Introduction

This is a Song of Ice & Fire RP set at the verge of Aegon's Conquest. Many paths lay open, from the many Kings of Westeros to the Free Cities and Stepstones.



1. The OP and Co-ops are Gods, their word is law.
2. This is a fantasy RP but try and be realistic. Travel time, combat, and politicking are all important, don't go too crazy
3. No god modding, metagaming etc.
4. This is going to be a freeform RP, time will vary between posts.
5. This will be an RP based on character development and progression, do not expect storylines to develop for you, make your own and involve other players. If you are stuck with nothing to do, OP/CO-OP will give your a task or an idea.
6. Keep the Lore restricted to A Song of Ice and Fire material only
7. Please keep characters in the Free Cities, Westeros and the Stepstones. If character is all the way over in let's say Yi Ti they wouldn't get much interaction.
8. We operate on a three strike system, three strikes and you're out
9. Have FUN


You may make your own house, however, they will be subject to stringent review, and canon houses are preferred. A new house may invent a new castle, but will not be able to take over lands or titles from a canon house. Your application will not be accepted until all fields are filled out. Custom Houses may only be low lords and are not allowed to have vassals. Custom Houses are not allowed Valyrian Steel Swords.

Age: 25
Gender: Male
Titles: Lord of Dragonstone
House Seat: Dragonstone
House Sigil:
Image

Allegiance paid to: None
Appearance (Picture appreciated): The Last Dragonlord
Personality: Aegon was seen as an enigma. He was a solitary person whose only friend was Orys Baratheon. He was a great warrior who wielded a sword called Blackfyre but only rode his dragon for battle or travel and never entered tourneys. He remained faithful to his sisters and left governance in their hands and only took command when necessary. While he was harsh with those who defied him, he was generous to those that bent the knee.
Skills: Master Warrior - One of, if not the greatest swordman in Westeros.
Master Commander - A execellent general, but does not have much experience.
Master Dragonrider - Riding the mighty dragon, Balerion, Aegon is the greatest living dragonrider.
Weaponry (If any): Blackfyre, Balerion The Black Dread
Military Strength: 1,200
Biography (At least a well written Paragraph please): Aegon was from the island of Dragonstone, the westernmost outpost of the Valyrian Freehold, which his family had settled over a century before the Doom of Valyria. According to Targaryen tradition, Aegon married within the family; however, instead of just one sister, he married both of them: his elder sister, Visenya, and his younger sister, Rhaenys. All three were dragonriders before they were wed.
RP Example: OP
Notes: Balerion, The Black Dread, Visenya Targaryen, Orys Baratheon


Name: Aenar Targaryen
House: Targaryen
Age: 20
Gender: Male
Titles: Heir to Dragonstone (Until a son is born to Aegon)
House Seat: Dragonstone
House Sigil:
Image

Allegiance paid to: Targaryen
Appearance (Picture appreciated): Aenar
Personality: Aenar is faithfully loyal to his older brothers and sisters. He was not scorned when his brother chose to wed both Visyena and Rhaenys which locked him out of marrying one of his siblings. He had a childhood crush on Rhaenys and she teased him many times while they grew up on Dragonstone. Aenar has a great respect for those that earn it, such as when his brother Aegon tamed the mighty dragon, Balerion. Aenar is a quick thinker and likes to predict what others do, though his predictions can be wrong.
Skills: Skilled fighter - While not better than his brother Aegon or his sister Visyena he can hold his own against his half-brother Orys and a majority of the soldiers on Dragonstone.
Military Genius - Aenar has perfected the study of military combat. He knows how to lead, organize and inspire his armies to a near perfection.
Dragon Dreams - Aenar experiences Dragon Dreams which can sometimes show him events in the future, however they are cryptic.
Weaponry (If any): A standard castle forged steel longsword, standard shield,
Military Strength (How many men can your lands call upon, eg. The Reach could likely muster 100,000 men.): None, serves Aegon
Biography (At least a well written Paragraph please): Aenar was the last son born to Aerion Targaryen. Aenar looked up his older siblings as they had become mighty dragon riders, thus to prove his worth began studying combat and the sword hoping he could be on the same level. Growing up, Aenar was very close to Rhaenys and Orys, Aenar having developed a crush on Rhaenys was often teased by her. While he trained with Orys and eventually respected him as Aegon does. However, as time went on and Aerion died Aegon married both his sisters, which at first upset Aenar but after spending several nights talking with Orys learned that he could be used for a potential marriage alliance. Aenar hopes that he will able to serve his house dutifully.
RP Example: Am the OP
Notes: Helys (a commoner and friend of Aenar)

Rhaenys and Naerys(custom) Apps

Postby Nuxipal » Wed Jun 21, 2017 8:36 pm

As before, if no one takes him, I can RP Orys in the background. Will add a small app for the Westerosi Knight who is one of the guards with Naerys.

Name: Rhaenys Targaryen
House: House Targaryen
Age: 23 (Born 25 Before Conquest/75 After The Doom)
Gender: Female
Titles: Lady of Dragonstone
House: Targaryen
House Seat: Dragonstone
House Sigil:
Image

Allegiance paid to: House Targaryen
Appearance:
Image

Personality: Enjoys poetry and arts, but she spends more time than her siblings combined atop her dragon and is said to enjoy flying more than anything else in the world.
Skills: Excellent Dragonrider, Good Diplomat, Fair Warrior, Fair Administrator
Weaponry (If any): Meraxes, Sword
Military Strength: She commands Meraxes, a large Dragon with Silver Scales. Aside from that she has a personal attache of 5 young attractive guards.
Biography (At least a well written Paragraph please): Rhaenys, was born two years after Aegon. She is said to have always been more slender and graceful than her older Sister Visenya. At a young age, she tamed and mounted the second largest of the Targaryen Dragons, Meraxes, for above all else, she wished that she could fly. She spent more time in the air with Meraxes than she did on the ground with her family. Because of this, her mother often claimed that she had lost her head in the clouds. She was fond of poetry and would ask for court poets to be kept at Dragonstone and for new works of art to be created for her.

When her father, Aerion died and Aegon ascended to the throne. It was customary for Targaryen sons to wed the older daughter. Aegon did so, however, he also married Rhaenys, whom, by this time, was extremely attractive. The court whispered about the sleeping arrangement claiming that for every night he spent with Visenya he spent ten with Rhaenys. Rhaenys keeps a personal attache of young attractive men and women around her. Poets, warriors, artists and ladies in waiting all attend to her while at court. However, they all know that her true love is Meraxes and flying. She knows that she will have to give up flying to fulfill duties to her Husband, but does not foresee any reason she can't continue flying until that time. Besides, he has another wife, their older sister.
RP Example:



Name: Naerys Targaryen
House: Targaryen
Age: 18
Gender: Female
Titles: Lady of Dragonstone
House: Targaryen
House Seat: Dragonstone
House Sigil:
Image

Allegiance paid to: House Targaryen
Appearance (Picture appreciated): Naerys
Personality: Naerys can best be described as aggressive. She has her moments of patience, but years of being placed in the background by her older siblings has left her a little jealous of them. She however, is a kind person to those that respect her.
Skills: Excellent Warrior, Good Strategist, Fair Diplomat, Poor Administrator
Weaponry (If any): Longsword(blackened steel), Shield( Targaryen Sigil)
Military Strength: Personal Guard of 4 fighting men, including one Westerosi Knight
Biography (At least a well written Paragraph please): Born after Rhaenys and Aenar, Naerys is the third daughter, and fifth born child of Aerion Targaryen. This proved advantageous to him as he could try to find a political match to further the alliances of House Targaryen. However, the temperament of Naerys prevented this quickly and soon she began training to be a warrior instead. Her entire life was devoted to becoming a better warrior than Visenya and winning the affections of Aegon. However, when Aerion died and Aegon chose whom he would marry. He chose Visenya out of Duty. Naerys was disappointed and went to work becoming a better warrior still. She knew that if she wasn't going to marry Aegon, then she could at least serve her family on the battlefields. It was later that night that she learned Aegon took Rhaenys as a second wife. Infuriated that Aegon had chosen the both of them over her she was determined to be the best Targaryen warrior to ever live.

She began collecting a small following of other warriors and eventually a Knight from Duskendale joined her. He was amazed at the skill which she brought to a fight, but said to her many times "Fighting in the yard and fighting a foe are two different feelings. Until you have faced a man in true battle and won, I will not knight you." She then made it her goal to be the first Targaryen Knight and usher her family into a new era of great warriors.

Name: Daemon Velaryon
House: Velaryon
Age: 42 (b. 44 BC)
Gender: Male
Titles: Lord of the Tides, Master of Driftmark, Master of Ships, Captain of Pride of Driftmark
House: Velaryon
House Seat: Driftmark
House Sigil:
Image

Allegiance paid to: House Targaryen
Appearance:
Image

Personality: Stern, Cunning, Diligent, Loyal, Brave
Skills: Tactician, Naval Officer, Swordsman, Speaks Common Tongue and Valyrian
Weaponry: Sword, Dagger, Axe, Spear, Shield
Military Strength: Troops: 2000, Ships: 30 (Atleast 55 troops per ship, and another ~350 remaining to garrison)
Biography: Daemon Velaryon is the brother of Valaena Targaryen, who married Aerion Targaryen and was mother to Aegon, Visenya and Rhaenys. Daemon was raised to be Lord of Driftmark and a competent admiral, well versed in fleet tactics. His father, Aethon, was a proud man who taught his son to be proud of his High Valyrian heritage. Daemon has three sons and two daughters from his marriage to Alyssa Celtigar, the sister of Lord Crispian Celtigar. He also has another bastard son and daughter from a sailor's daughter. His wife died in childbed with his third true born son, Daemon.

Daemon's third son, Corlys, is one of, if not, the greatest swordsmen alive, though he is not the most competent of commanders. His heir, Aethon, is a skilled administrator and commander, but he is only decent at his swordplay. Daemon still needs to find a suitable bride for Aethon. His youngest son, also named Daemon, has recently reached the age of six, and Daemon the Elder plans to send his son to his nephew on Dragonstone, in order to serve as a page. Daenys and Elaena, his twin daughters have yet to be married. While he has a decent relationship with his bastard children, he is not particularly close to them. Following the war against Volantis, and its attempt to forge a New Valyria, he granted his three eldest sons (Aurion, Aethon and Corlys) captaincy of their own ships. Dubbed Sunrise, Tide Flyer, and Sea Blade, respectively.

Daemon, like his ancestors, gains his wealth from a monopoly over sea trade across the narrow sea. Driftmark's location before the Gullet, gives it a prime position for trade, the majority of which occurs in the town of Spicetown, while the town of Hull serves primarily as a shipyard. Daemon maintains a good relationship with his relatives, the Targaryens. As of late Daemon has plans for his youngest son to become a page in Lord Aegon's court, and has plans to soon depart for Dragonstone.

His mother named him after the fabled Dragon Emperor, Aurion, and named his sister after the famous dragon rider, Jaenara Belaerys. Stories of Emperor Aurion's attempt to reconquer Valyria following the Doom became Aurion's favourite stories as a child, and he dreamed of one day being a great Emperor like his childhood hero. However, as he grew older he realized this would be impossible, and decided to focus on being the closest thing to his dream that he could, a captain in service to his father. As an adult he and his sister followed the Valyrian tradition for bastards, and created a new surname for themselves, Varezys. Eventually he was able to become a captain of one of his father's vessels, and now serves him.

Aurion and his sister are on pleasant terms with their cousins, but due to their bastard status they are not given much chance to interact with them at feasts or gatherings. Aurion, is friendly with his second cousin, Orys, and has a sense of comraderie with him, due to their shared bastard status. He also harbours jealousy towards Orys, as Aurion feels Orys is treated almost as an equal by his siblings, while Jaenara and Aurion are generally ignored by their own.

Haven't made changes to previous apps, so yes then. I will need to adjust her age. Should I also adjust Naerys or leave her where she is for development purposes?

Perhaps so, but its not that she knows that. She probably doesn't know much regarding the Westerosi Faith, having been raised on the Valyrian gods.

Gender: Male
Titles: King of the Rock, Lord of Casterly Rock
House Seat: Casterly Rock
House Sigil:(Picture required or description)

Allegiance paid to: (Eg. Bolton's to Starks, Starks to Targaryens) Kingdom of the Rock
Appearance (Picture appreciated):
Image
Personality: Pragmatis, Brace, Cautious, Patient, Condescending, Huge nerd, envious, temperate, deceitful, just
Skills: (eg. Robert Baratheon would be a great warrior, Jon Arryn a great administrator, Varys a great spymaster)
Brilliant Steward, Rich as fuck, good organizer, Trained Fighter, shrewd, scholar, administrator, Trickster
Weaponry (If any):
Military Strength: (How many men can your lands call upon, eg. The Reach could likely muster 100,000 men.) 50-60 thousand men, 30 ships out of Lannistport
Biography: (At least two well written paragraphs please):

Loren I is a proud king. His father died in an accident when Loren was only 14. He would squire under a number of knights in an effort to gain favor with multiple families, he would be knighted at age 17 and was considered a good, though no great fighter. He immersed himself in books of strategy and tactics, reading accounts of battles long past and bringing more maesters to his court than any other Lord. He believed in being prepared for war but striving for peace, indeed more often than not he would peacefully defuse situations that other rulers would have tried to turn bloody, but rarely lost face in an exchange. The battles and skirmishes he did fight were mostly against ironborn raiders, who were almost always repulsed.

However his true passion lied in math and science, he would seek to turn The Rock into a bastion of learning and one day hoped it would eclipse Oldtown, though he knew that dream was a long way off.

At age 22 he would would marry Cynda Kenning, sealing an important alliance. His reign would focus inward, as he cared little for the affairs beyond the borders of the Rock, relying on the mountains to insulate and protect them. He would only care about foreign events that threatened his trade routes.

Loren spent most of his reign promoting industry and infrastructure in his borders. With the plentiful presence of silver and gold, Loren reasoned iron and copper were also plentiful and he was right. While gold and silver were more prized, the domestic goods made with iron and copper had a much larger market. This would greatly increase the wealth of house Lannister. Additionally he sent for steelsmiths from Qohor, Artificers from Myr and experts from all over Essos. They would begin tutoring the people of the Westerlands in how to create high quality goods.

Now in his 50s Loren looks to his first passion, learning. He wishes to create a guild not for a craft, but of science. A group sponsored by the King of the Rock who would push the boundaries of learning, though his eldest son pushed for the creation of a golden bank, and his younger for an expansion of the Lannisport fleet ten-fold. However events to the east may finally lure the Lion out of his cave….

RP Example:
You know me but I’ll put one if you want

Notes: (Please put here any ancillary characters you will likely play as, for example, Tywin Lannister would probably control Jaime, Hoster Tully would also control Brynden Tully, Robert and Stannis etc etc. Keep in mind your ancillary characters can still be apped by other nations.)[/spoiler]

2 sons, Gerold 32 and Kevan 28, Gerold is married to a member of house Brax and Kevan of house Crakehall
Wife, Cynda 44 from House Kenning
Daughter Cerissa 18 unmarried

While it's true knights are supposed to be male, it's also true that kings are supposed to have only one wife who isn't their sister. The early Targaryens tended to say "fuck you, I've got a dragon" and blatantly flout what they were "supposed" to do, so if Naerys can get back in her brother and sisters' good graces she actually stands a chance.

Perhaps so, but its not that she knows that. She probably doesn't know much regarding the Westerosi Faith, having been raised on the Valyrian gods.

True, Andal/Westerosi customs are probably still less known to Blackwater Bay Valyrians. And since I doubt many Valyrian priests survived, which might explain why Aegon was so ready to accept a "foreign" religion when taking the throne, gonna be a bit of a disappointment to her though

They generally did try to adapt to the customs though, and Andals have had only male knights since before they crossed the sea. Polygamy isn't uncommon to certain other cultures, but if the Targaryens started trying to change longstanding Andal traditions they would probably not be too happy

Both are right. She is going to be disappointed when Ser Steffon finally tells her that she can't actually be knighted in the Faith of the Seven. Won't stop her from trying to enter tournaments and beating the pants off of other Knights anyway.

Tournaments she could probably still do, being a female tourney champion would be a good goal

If she were to win.. she probably could knight herself. Would be kind of odd. "Now you must choose the Queen of Love and Beauty" *Chooses Ser Naerys Targaryen*

may also want to put that Gerold should have newborn son named Lyman, since there was a Lord Lyman Lannister during the Reigns of Maegor and Aenys

Name: Ser Steffon Darke
House: House Darke
Age: 31
Gender: Male
Titles: Ser
House Seat: Sworn to House Darklyn
House Sigil:
Image

Allegiance paid to: Darklyns of Duskendale, Sword Shield to Naerys Targaryen (by permission of House Darke)
Appearance (Picture appreciated): Ser Steffon Darke
Personality: Deeply Devout and an honorable man. Swore his oath of Fealty to Lord Darklyn at age 16, since has been asked to act as a liaison on Dragonstone Island with the Targaryens following a disagreement with one of the Darklyn boys.
Skills: Excellent Warrior
Weaponry (If any): Steel Longsword, Steel Plate Armor, Reinforced Oak Shield with House Darke Sigil painted on it.
Military Strength: Himself
Biography: (At least two well written paragraphs please): Steffon Darke was raised in Duskendale by the cadet branch of House Darklyn. House Darke, they were called and were not well liked by many of the Darklyns. They saw them as potential usurpers for the longest time. Now however, they are a truly unique treasure to the family. A second bloodline, of loyal and strong knights since the days of the River Kings. Since then they have served Storm Kings and now suffer through the rule of the Iron Kings. Steffon was raised as a great knight, knighted at age 20 when he passed the rigorous tests that House Darke had set up for its sons. He was a second son, of the head of House Darke. Which means he inherited nothing. His older brother would get the small estate and command over the city watch when his father felt it was time to pass the mantle. Steffon however, fell into the hands of Lord Darklyn's plans to establish some kind of relation with the Dragons in Blackwater Bay. For whatever purpose, Steffon was sent to the island to listen and advise the Targaryens as best as they would listen to him.

Instead he fell into service with the youngest of them, a martial girl named Naerys. She was already half as good a fighter as he was and she was only 15 at the time. Three years later and she was nearly his equal with a sword and was advancing quickly with a lance and a bow. Originally he thought of just teaching her defense, but she proved she was a warrior born and decided that she would need to be trained properly. The three years he had spent with her would just be the beginning. Once she was ready, he would return to Duskendale with her and have both of them enter a tourney. She as a mystery knight and he as himself. It would be interesting to see how far she could go.

RP Example:
Notes: Minor control over House Darke Characters assuming no House Darklyn app[/spoiler]

Of becoming a Westerosi Knight. Also, if she were to somehow obtain her brother's backing or somehow acquired one of her sibling's dragons... saying no to knighting her becomes much harder for a septon or a knight.
