Introduction

History
Westeros was originally divided into several independent kingdoms. But in the War of Conquest, these various kingdoms were united under the rule of House Targaryen into what is known as the Seven Kingdoms. House Targaryen divided the Seven Kingdoms into four principal regions - North, South, East, and West - and named one of its bannermen as the Wardens and Lord Protectors of each; House Stark the North, House Tyrell the South, House Arryn the East, and House Lannister the West.

Tradition tells us that the known history of Westeros extends back for 12,000 years. Prior to this, little is known of the peoples and tribes that populated the continent. The children of the forest were perhaps the most advanced race, but their uncharted history is lost to myth and legend. Giants may have walked far and wide in these primeval days; other peoples may have vanished into the mists of time as well, such as those who left the Seastone Chair behind on the Iron Islands. Eventually, all would either disappear or fall to invaders from the east.

There are many kinds of people found in Westeros; Rugged wildlings, honorable warriors, ignoble knights, unscrupulous mercenaries, power hungry nobles, venerated kings, mysterious assassins, and just about any other sort of character, from denizens of seedy seaside ports to the masters of lavishly adorned palaces. In Westeros, virtue and vice are not the province of any specific class. Rather, they exist freely in both ordinary and extraordinary characters in Westeros.

Plot
It was many years before the fall of house Targaryen, dragons already fell and High King Leonell has the throne, along with his wife Queen Eleanor and his son Lucion. King leonell is not the most lovable king. A war will start very soon. The 6 houses will devide into two forces. They will fight against each other, for a claim of the throne. If the Targaryen's and their allies win King Leonell will stay king. But if the opposing forces win its their choice to decide who will be king. The meaning of life is your Kingdoms Words.

Each of you will be king, each kingdom has its own resources and different amounts of forces and wealth. Each king has his "Secret soldier" that will be played once in battle.

Where you will start?

Each of you Lady's or Lord's is summonded to a court in Kings landing. Start at home, wrap things up take your champion and a few man and be on your way. House stark and Baratheon are allies and always have been, just as Targareyn and Lannisters are joined by marriage, king Leonell is married to Lady Ealnoer daughter of the lord of the Lannisters.

Summery
Basically you are a lord or a lady, you control them, you control your champion. You also control anyone in your house, that goes to guards peasants anything. There will be a rebellion in which you must fight to win.

Re: Race For Glory

Hi there! I was wondering whether this role play is still going as no one has replied here in a while. If it is I would like to reserve House Greyjoy and will be a regular poster. I look forward to joining you all, if you'll have me.

Re: Race For Glory

Fantastic :D and assuming that our charries will be originals rather than Eddard and Robert...
I'll send app asap

Re: Race For Glory

Yes of course that was my complete mistake! :P

Re: Race For Glory

Thank you for adding that in. :)

Re: Race For Glory

I thought I did add that the story is from game of thrones, I must have overlooked the fact, And of course the story is copy pasted its not my story nor is it my creation, its an adaptation from Game of Thrones into a role play. And about the grammar, i'm aware that some of it is wrong i didn't look over it fully I finished late last night. @S1mon you can add what ever you'd like its lacking in some parts.

Re: Race For Glory

I don't mean to bash, but I must say it's pretty daring to talk about 'correct grammar and spelling' when just about the only parts that have no mistakes are directly copy-pasted from Song of Ice and Fire wikis and other online sources.

Re: Race For Glory

I think you need to remove the "original" tag, because not all of this is not your work.
Please credit people when using their ideas.
This is based heavily off of Game of Thrones, written by George R.R. Martin.

Re: Race For Glory

This is FANTASTIC! Sorry for caps, but def loving this :D
So it's a player(as a Lord/Lady) per House, so no-one else can join that House after? if I've read correctly. If not, please clarify.
The Champion acts like a sort of second-charrie for the House, so is the Champion the "secret soldier" that is mentioned, or that something else.
As for who I'd like to place as reserve, I'd like House Stark. For the character sheet, if we wanted, is it ok to add a few more extra stuff?
