Wildlings were around and known of long before Jon Snow.
Brothers of the Nights Watch frequently encountered groups of them on rangings beyond the Wall.
Some of them would even occasionally scale the wall and travel around the North for a bit.
e.g. Mance Rayder.

That being said, Dothraki and wildlings are not the subject of this intended storyline.  There are simply too many possibilities in the noble families of Westeros (and no known Dothraki or wildlings attended the events set for this roleplay) that I feel it would detract from the story rather than enhance it.

Obviously not the GM here (and please don't bother to bitch slap me if I'm out of line, DR), but I think it would be much easier and advantageous for characters to be at least nobility, or at least something above a commoner or the like.

From a story standpoint, it's the largest Tourney in quite some time, with lords and knights and ladies from all over the Realm coming to participate and witness it.  Even the King is going to be there (or not...  Can never tell with that crazy son of a bitch).  With most people taking lord and ladies characters, bastards and legitimate, I think that it makes more sense to do a character that would be more likely to be around them, than say a commoner.  Can't have the peasants mingling with the King and Prince and their posse. 

Wildlings...  Dothraki...  Commoners...  From my own perspective, it seems like it could be so difficult to get them involved and interacting with characters that are most likely (and realistically) be separated from them.  Unless you're doing like a thrall to an Iron Islander, or a paramour to a Lord (or Lady), or a servant, I think it might be a bit difficult to get involved.

Just my two cents...

Some potentially bad ass ideas for those who might be interested, but having trouble coming up with something...  (Unofficial of course, and please don't hesitate to slap me, Raven, if I'm out of line...)

  • A Member of the Night's Watch:  This is supposedly when Benjen Stark decided he would join the Watch, and did after the Rebellion.
  • A Merchant Prince/Princess from Essos:  Could be a Banker from the Iron Bank of Braavos, could be a rich and powerful merchant looking to see what they could get out of supporting Rhaegar...
  • Kingsguard:  Some of the best knights in all the Realm...  Speaking of which...
  • Ser Arthur Dayne:  The Sword of the fuckin' Morning.  Arguably one of the best knights in all the Realm, a legend with a legendary sword.
  • A Faceless Man:  The largest gathering of all the richest and powerful lords and ladies in all the realm might be a perfect chance for a Faceless Man or two.

Elia Martell is claimed by Emjay, just waiting on a sheet. :)

I'm thinking of joining as Jon Connington as, I think, he is the only confirmed homosexual character at the tourney. Although, the question is, do we have any M/M writers here?

As Jon Connington is the only confirmed homosexual in this timeline, you might have trouble finding a M/M writer.  There is Oberyn Martell, though he is bi.  You would need to check with Heartsink.

I can do M/M :-) But Jon's probable love for Rhaegar also includes his disdain for Elia. Oberyn doesn't treat nicely those who dislike or mistreat his sister, though. Would be interesting nevertheless ;)

Hello, and I am really interested in this game, and just have a question while I read, which may be answered here. I am staking a claim on Jon Snow if he hasn't been taken already.

Okay for real this time, Brandon Stark is more my style of play. So I will take him, and should have my sheet up within the weekend. I won't change my mind again. This time is it for reel.  :o
