Very good point. It would also be interesting to have more people dive into the Baratheon plot as well. :) Just a suggestion.

Or, if it manifests into something amazing with a huge plot, go for it!

I'm looking at that already  ;D

Caela, if you are from Barratheon Blood. If she has knowledge of Robert and his bastards and then of Gendry (My Oc's granddather) it would be a good way to legitimatize what he is claiming.

So if she is serving some House, he is just gonna have to go on an adventure!

...and if she is serving Martell, the male heir would need her there to keep his father semi healthy until he's killed his sister, but the sister would benefit from not slowing down the illness so she might want to take the healer with her when she vanishes from Dorne...

Just sayin ::)

She's definitely of Baratheon blood. Working on her write up and she refuses to be anything else lol....I can easily incorrporate an interest in family genealogy into her background so that she knows about Gendry. The real trick will be your character knowing about HER. She's been gone since she was 13 and you said he was going to have spent most of his life East so he'd have to find out he had a cousin who was a Maester and that she knew rhe family genealogy better than anyone else living....except maybe grandma Shireen of course.

Unless he is the one getting mine/ours out of Dorne.

See what I did there? ;)

Lots of plots in motion, but yea, I think it would be fun to play out. Off course this ends when they go back to Grandma Shireen.

That's perfect, because my plots and character concept deal with Ava Greyjoy being the head of the house. I'd love to hear your plot idea, because I want to keep Greyjoy open for your possible plots and ideas.

This is sort of a bunch of pieces of ideas and not a full idea, but I was thinking of going a descendant of Victarion Greyjoy (Balon's younger brother, Asha's Uncle) -- who more understood/respected the the value of riches/treasure. Publicly, he'd be somebody who worked on the docks (more administration than physical labor, how 'far' up the ladder can be discussed) -- but is actually running a criminal organization in King's Landing -- sort of an urban take on the 'Iron Price'.

He pacifies those back home by feeding them information about vessels worth pirating that head towards/through the Iron Islands, or utilize the rivers that cross near the mainland, as well as some idea that he's trying to secretly 'sabotage' the Iron Throne again. Though in actuality, doing anything really serious against the Iron Throne would be hard to swallow given that he's living a rather comfortable life.

I'm just not sure what form I want the criminal organization to take. Slaves lends itself to gladiatorial matches pretty easily, and also creates a retinue of loyal thugs...

I really like the idea of a criminal organization at Pyke!

My question is, other than nobility, would he had any reason to come to King's Landing for the announcement or tournament? He could also be a decent jouster or swordsmen, and maybe doing some illegal trading at King's Landing.

Just some thoughts to help you out! How would he also feel about Ava wanting to use the possible distraction of succession and sudden hate against the throne to expand her land and take over more?

I...have no plot for my character yet.  I have no idea where he'd fit in right now.

Red and I can always help! :) Let me know what you're thinking and we can either discuss something here or in PM.

I've pitched an idea to Lockepick, but I think it will hinge upon if his concept is approved.

So far it looks good to me. I'm curious about the overall goal of him. Plus it would give yet another element for Ava to deal with.

I totally didn't see the recruitment thread until a few minutes ago.

I've got an Iron Islander Lord (not a Greyjoy, but lord of a House Volmark in the Iron Islands).  Might have a bit of history in mind that I'll work on and PM.

Annnnnnd she's sent for the tweaking/revising/approval process lol.

I love it when characters just spring, nearly fully formed, into my head. She made herself easy to write and didn't fight me on her creation. It's lovely when it happens that way.

Of course that probably means she's plotting mischief for me later!  ::)

I am working to finish my profile to send off.

Quick question I may have missed it, but what season is it in game currently? Are we looking at winter coming up or are we in the middle of Summer?

I'll work on my character when I get a chance.  I have a lot going on in the next week or two.  I do have one question, is anyone playing the head of house Tyrell yet?  If not, I'll need to message you fine GMs to pitch the part of my idea to you that requires him/her/them.

It's Summer, nearing the end.

I think Biblio mentioned Tyrell, but I'm not sure what she had planned yet! I'd ask just to make sure! You both could be sitting on a good plot.

One thing:

I hope you peeps don't mind if you give us a day or two to look over the sheets. That way we can approve a few all together. Also it gives time for Red Lobster and I to both look at them.

Thanks for being awesome ahead of time!

Of course not! It just happens to be my day off so I had time to get it done. I never expect to hear back for a couple of days. People have actual lives after all lol.

As far as I can tell...it's the nice way of saying work.

Or in my case, work/school/being a mom lol.
