Introduction

Septa Colette used to tell stories of war and blood to the boys of House Jaculus that once happened to Westeros hundreds of years, it involved Dragons and Wolves big as bears and a war that beheaded thousands of people just for the Throne made of swords.

A Throne that their King Uncle's ancestors decided to melt down and form 7 powerful armors and swords from it. One worn and blade in hand by their father for House Jaculus and the other by the King of House Gurges. 4 of it belonged to the head of Houses of Bronte, Expugnatio, Ferrarius and Vella. And the remaining one was said to be worn by the King's half brother, The Black Knight Caligo Stream.

And in exchange of the royal seat they used to call The Iron Throne, The Crystal Throne was offered in peace by the Wildlings of the North made of Ice that never melts. With it stand 7 Crystal Bone warriors with Ice Swords- it was said that it would come alive for the rightful heir in time that his/her life comes to danger.
Of what sorcery it is, no one knows but it was said that the Crystal Throne would slowly melt if the ruler isn't the right one. And of course, a lot of people called the stories a lie- it never melted even if the King's who have sat on it were not always favored by everyone.


It was a story that Septa Colette told the children whenever they ask for the horrific stories before bed.

House Jaculus was blessed with 2 sons (Heron and Soren), children of Lord Draco Jaculus and Lady Silene Gurges- Jaculus. It is widely known that Lord Draco had taken his seat as the King's hand just as the new king took the Crystal Throne.


The rightful and new King Sal Gurges had taken over the Crystal Throne a few days after his father's death, the late King Pontus- the 4th of his line to have sat on the Crystal Throne.

His wife, Queen Gertrude Bronte- Gurges had given birth twin boys and a girl, Sol, Slynt and Gerona, but died shortly after giving birth to the girl.

Now that the twin boys have reached the age of 16 while the little girl had turned to a beautiful lady of 14, the Kingdom is celebrating good harvest and peaceful keeping of the Kingdom until the new form of wildlings had decided to come together and destroy the peace.

They are now called the Army of SAEVUS, with the help of a few ostracized men who formed a group and fled the Night's Watch. They were lead by the one they used to call the Black Knight- Caligo.

Word 1: Sandor

Direction of the story aka What I intend for things to happen within the story:

The 7 Kingdoms of Westeros had been at peace with each other and harvested bountiful crops ruled by the new King Sal Gurges, Son of the late King Pontius the Gentle Gurges. He took his sister's husband to be his Hand and other Lords as member of his council and in charge of offices. Everything was going fine until a crow brought the news of a mass uprising lead by his bastard brother Ser Caligo Stream.

He was sent to exile up North, where snow lay before the place where the Wall used to stand. The exile was sent by their father after he received news that he had murdered a whole town. People came up to King Pontius, saying that they saw him murder the poor families with his own two hands. And the Gentle King only saw it befitting to send him to exile rather than to take his own son's life.

Now 10 years after, King Sal had taken his seat on the Crystal Throne, prepared his army to guard the 7 Kingdoms from the supposed uprising by his bastard brother with Lord Draco on his side among the other Lords that serves the Kingdom.

The RP starts where King Sal is going to ride up North and see for himself what his half brother has done. He would ride towards The Neck where 40 thousand of his men are waiting for his orders.

For the mean while, The Black Knight Ser Caligo Stream formed an army of Wildlings and had just camped by Winterfell. Making use of the ruins that was once House Stark. There he had formed his own council of exiled knights and people. Having over 70 thousand people, men and women alike- ready to fight and take over the 7 Kingdoms and take back what was once theirs.

___________________

King Sal will die. Leaving his Hand Lord Draco and his sister Lady Silene as the regent and to see which of the twin boys would seat as King. Will it be Sol or Slynt? And who will they choose for Gerona to marry?

Lord Draco having his own problem with his boys who are different of nature- Heron a boy with a thirst for fighting and Soren a boy more of a gentle aura.

And when the King had fallen, other Lords of different houses see it befitting to take the Crystal Throne- how? Only they kept their secrets on how to survive and bring down the Regent, the twin boys and maybe even Gerona and her betrothal.

Man or woman- they all want to seat on the Crystal Throne.

This RP is a form of Survival.

Notes to consider:
1. Somewhere in my post are the three magic words that you have to include in your character sheet.
2.I will message on of the characters about their secret standing aka their evil plans or good plans. And I will also message one of you and appoint you as the one responsible for Caligo's exile.
3. The Black Knight might have been or might not have been guilty of the crime that people said he did. Maybe someone wanted him to be dead but the plans changed when his King Father sent him for exile instead
4. Sol and Slynt are twins- no one knows who will inherit the Throne and crown.
5. Lady Silene is sister to the King Sal.
6. Each House is in charge of different offices such as farming, armory, etc.
7. The capital is still at King's Landing
8. Winterfell is no more than a ruined castle
9. If you have questions: feel free to ask at the OOC or PM Me.

Re: A Game of the Crystal Throne

What are you looking for in a player for the Black Knight

EDIT: and if not the Black Knight, though he's my first choice, wonder if for now I can reserve King?

REDIT: the Lord Cataegis wouldn't be too bad either. I can create a character for whichever of those three
