"Where the fuck am I, where the fuck am I, where the fuck am I?" you keep mumbling under your breath, confusedly brushing twigs off your bare butt and legs from your fall. You slow down your breathing and look around, grabbing your junk to hide it from anything in the night time forest, you see around yiou a bunch of brick houses and alleyways, surrounding a small park hidden in the midnght dark, it was warm, and quite a few plants added the heady fragrance of roses in the air. It had only happened a few seconds ago.---------You were sitting in your college apartment doing fuck-all in the middle of the night. Your eyes felt heavy and you shut them for seconds, and then you woke up to a fall on leaves and grass, naked as the day you were born. ///////////OUT OF CHARACTER//////////////You are a naked 18 year old American Male who has just been transported to Highgarden in the Game of Thrones Universe. You, the MC, are currently awakening at the same second Ned Stark recieves word that Jon Arryn is dead. You have full knowledge of the motivations and future uniterferred in outcomes that come to pass, and now you're here at the apex of the greatest decade of turmoil ever seen in Westeros.> Now then, how do you get clothed?
Personal 'stats' -Relatively healthy caucasian male at six feet of height, with no significant muscle mass, skinny.
>>379810I have not read/seen GoT. I shall lurk.
attract loras with my big cok
All hail the Starkgaryeans! Also Braavos can come because they're cool.Let's keep in mind that there are other technologies to introduce beyond black powder once we hook up with someone who has a decent manufacturing base, and that a 4chan denizen who read the Safehold or Destroyermen series would be familiar enough with them to be able to explain the concepts to experts. Penicillin is a huge thing that the Maesters will love us for forever,, and proper sailing ships will at the very least guarantee us a comfortable life in Braavos.
>>379810Go to the nearest house and lie about being robbed or something.The most important question after being clothed would be, which of them fuckers do I want to win the game?
>>379918You quickly scramble to the nearest house you can, a small hovel in the garden with a steady flame in a hot campfire outside, a man sat stoking the flames, a few years older than you. "Please... Uh... Sir? I've been robbed and stripped of my clothes, do you have any I could wear?" The man stares at you with a blank expression, clearly slightly drunk with the tankard of ale in his left hand nearing empty. "eh yeah?" The man replies, "and how are you gonna pay me back for those clothes?"> What do we do?!
>>379944I can tell the future?
>>379944I can tell you the name of the winner of this and that tourney, if you bet on him you'll gain a lot of money.
>>379944>>380059+1I'll come up with a plan after we get our clothesFor now we'll be a crazy nutjob if we can't prove we know the future. With this guy humor him about knowing the future like it's a risk he was to take to gain that winning.
>>379944Don't die on me OP this shit is what I was waiting for.>>379959>>380059Guys if this plan doesn't work we can go to the temple and be a homeless bagger. Asking for simple clothes and food for the day maybe shelter. Let's keep the knowing the future underwarps that most people doesn't know.
This is a pretty cool quest desu.I assume we know 21st century agriculture, at least the basics right? how about teaching him some stuff.As for stats, I reckon we should have 5 in knowledge, and maybe Blood of Heroes as one of our destiny thingies.
>>380192+1 for temple. Also get the hound on our team, and Tyrion.
It's not dead is it?
>>380192Yes, temple!>>379944>small hovelpeasant garb? erm, no thanks, makes us victim #372 immediately, better naked... go to Sept, knock till some priest opens, tell you saw a vision of the Faith returning in force>>3803504chan was dead for a while...
>>380192Sorry! Passed out after copious amounts of alcohol last night, I am back to run the promised quest >>380192
>>380207As for what knowledge we have, just assume we're a relatively well rounded college student who knows a pretty good amount of science, so yes. 21st century techniques (that you know of) are possible
>>380429>well rounded college studentso, beer pong, how to write papers that make sense, how to learn after a party only hours before exams :)>21st century techniquesbut only in theory, right?plus we know all about Westeros?
>>380059>>380187"I don't have much... But I do know a way we can both become rich beyond our wildest dreams if you would be so kind as to give me something to cover my balls from the elements, I mean if you wouldn't mind." You say, exasperated as you've got dirt in places they shouldn't, and haven't eaten in a few hours.The man laughs again "Oh, rich you say?" His chest rises and fallas quickly with laughter, "Sure, kid. Let's get you some clothes and some food for the road. I can't let you stay here though, my wife is surely soon to return, and what would she think if I was dining with a boy? Ahh no. Afraid not. Goodbye." The fucker shut the door in your face after dropping ratty linen trousers and a rough shirt with tears in several places.> So the man wasn't interested in much, but all of highgaden can't admire your arse if that brings any comfort, what do you do?
>>380438Yeah. The things your usual smarter-than-average student knows, I;e lots of theory not much physical skill
>>380439>trousers/ shirt Get to a Sept: We saw a vision! The Faith will become stronger!
>>380443and all of the events from Game of Thrones
Explore the place and find work/easy loot so we can bet on tourneys and then spend money on maki ourselves tough like pic related
>>380447>bet on tourneysdon't have money>make ourselves toughtakes time and food (which we also don't have)The Faith is our hope! Peasants won't help, they have problems of their own, nobles will try to stab us if we try to beggar them (in our current clothes)...>>380443well, at least he can probably present ideas and convince others of their validity... so, revolutionary leader, demagogue?
>>380445>Game of ThronesWe'll have to check whether this is the book or the tv show world... how old is the Targaryen Dany, if 12(?) then book, 18+ then tv show :)
>>380455We'll establish a bit more about his background later in the story, don't want the entirety of his backstory to be pregenerated, want some player input as well, but done right.
>>380463aightLets try go down the road to a town..Maybe theres a sign post
Book but for the interest of dramatic effect I'm pulling an HBO here and bumping the ages of Characters to show standards. ------ Simply because those characters will be boring and in a few cases kinda pedophilic.
>>380469>kinda pedophilic.Nothing wrong there :^)
>>380463>don't want the entirety of his backstory to be pregeneratedSupport that>>380465>road to a townThought we're already in a town? Sign post sounds great! Or we ask another guy: "Where am I?" 'Westeros' "Who is King?" 'Robert' "Who's the Hand of the King?" ... city guard takes us in...>>380469understandable!
Trecking down the road your bare feet quickly learn that walking on the soft grasses that make up swaths of pristenly kenpt gardens. It matches your expectations perfectly, a warm summery city with an abundance of plant life and rose imagery. It's Highgarden. Capital of athe Reach, ruled by Mace Tyrell, his heir Loras Tyrell and Margery Tyrell his daughter, and his mother The Queen of Thorns. Now that you had some what of your decency back you decide to explore more, heading down many twisting roads to get your bearings. Eventually you find a sign that has the cardinal directions on each post, the north pointing to your right. N- Palace E- Market StreetS- Baker's RestW- Sept of the Seven
>>380479Palace. Our ultimate aim is to become Margerys concubine.
>>380482>>380484 Still need to describe what you want to do at the palace, not gonna make your plans for you anon, I love you but I have to let you be free
>>380484or Loris if we aren't good enough for Margery
>>380486Go to the palace saying that You have information on all the houses .... Maybe on the way to the palace steal a hood and real mysterious and edgy We have read the books correct or at least the series since we an 18 year old
No scratch that shit unless someone likes it >>380489Lets see if we can't find a guard Maybe ask him if they hiring Then we can get training and a sword and armour
>>380489Yes, the MC has full, detailed understanding of the lore in the books.
>>380479>W- Sept of the SevenStill think the Faith will be kindest to us.The palace people probably won't even let us in, beggar clothes and all... our info can only be validated in weeks, months, years...
>>380489>information on all the houses "Hello, I know everything about all the houses"'so, you're a spy? A traitor to your master?'"No, I just know stuff. Let me in, feed me!"'To the dungeon with him, get the torturer, he'll speak the truth soon enough.'"Nooooooooo"
>>380484>Margerys concubinehm, with modern day skin care, shaved and all, we probably do look kinda healthy and handsome
>>380504Thats why I said Scratch that
>>380511overlooked thatgetting hired as a guard (who can read) doesn't sound too bad. Do they hire people who can't fight though?
>>380518YepThe more soldiers the betterAlso Farmers could become guards. I mean its not like we trying to become a knight yet
>>380528or maybe we can ask them if they need someone who can read, write and do math - Math Maester Quest...Westerosi fighting seems quite deadly for a college kid...
>>380536>read, write and do math - Math Maester Quest...Again They gonna ask if we a spyI mean How many 18yo guys in tattered clothes and shit have this much knowledge Lets just be a guard for a bit
>>380510By Westerosi Southern standards you're a very handsome man, but more in the scrawny way Jofferey was considered beautiful, modern technology has done wonders for your body compared to the shit life of peasents and superstisious nobles. >>380496Money was the first concern. Money meant food, shelter, potentially a way to get connections. You had a plethora of knowledge that was valuable, but not in your current state. But there always was the potential you had learned something that could help a homeless peasent... Being a guard? Fighting was never your strong suit. You lean back on a public bench in a small field of golden roses breathing in the night air. This land is beautiful, it was hard to believe so much bloodshed was to come, and you weren't sure if you had much chance or not, surviving considering your past experiences...> You were quite active in your college years, giving you a much more athletic psyique, but you also tended to spend more time playing video games or playing sports. Resulting in less knowledge about science and the arts, but greater physical strength and health. (You're scrawny but buff, and are set to having a slightly lower than average I.Q of American students, but are considered quite beautiful, with slightly above average social skills) > You were a whiz at engineering, being an ace student at University for a Dual degree in Mechanical and Chemical Engineering. You didn't do much but study ever since highschool started though, or play games and read. As a result you've become a shy man - very thin but not in the attractive healthy way, but ribs poking out over skinny abdominals. Pale, socially inept, and not the fittest person around, your real benefit here is your brain.> The Scout - A smart lad with a knack for living in the woods. You were geeky like the rest of your counterparts, but you had a fascination ith the natural world since an early age - leading you to get a degree in Biology and Botany. You know much about Zoology, Botony, Chenistry, and because of your healthy habits you are relatively fit. Meaning you are more middle of the road, good knowledge but not as intensive and applicable as the nerd, but not as much athelticism or attractiveness as the athlete.> Run of the Mill student, (if thisnoption is voted, I will randomly roll for each 'stat' : athelticism, attractiveness, intellect, social awareness, and health, and create a story to match it. You cannot reject the result. This is to represent random 4chan user)
>>380558>> You were quite active in your college years, giving you a much more athletic psyique, but you also tended to spend more time playing video games or playing sports. Resulting in less knowledge about science and the arts, but greater physical strength and health. (You're scrawny but buff, and are set to having a slightly lower than average I.Q of American students, but are considered quite beautiful, with slightly above average social skills)And we can talk the talk with people, make friendsOther options besides Scout seem theory heavy, no immediate medieval world application, can't autocad here

>>380558Forgot an option, didn't copy in to the post> The Actor - You weren't atheltic in your youth, but you were attractive. You're benefits don't lie in beauty, but in your lies - you were an avid actor in school throughout your life. A pretty face, a decent intellect in the sense of logic rather than books.
>>380569oh, that sounds very nice too! Actor means we can fit right in, make them believe we're a noble from ...somewhere
>>380569>> The Actor - You weren't atheltic in your youth, but you were attractive. You're benefits don't lie in beauty, but in your lies - you were an avid actor in school throughout your life.

>>380569Voting for actor too
>>380569changing to Actor.We'll make them believe... anything we want
>>380576>>380572You smile - it will be good that you've played the part of so many characters in this sort of time era. You quickly think of a good improvisational character, you decide to use your first name "Isaac". You whisper under your breath, practicing your speech for the captain of the guard as you quietly walk along the streets, watching as the sun finally begins to rise. Leaning down on a railing, again you are shocked still by the beauty of this place. Miles and miles of fields outsides the two walls of the castle were visible from here - all of it was colored yellow by the golden roses, the symbol of the Tyrells. The sun catches the field in the perfect light, and the blossoms truly seem to be made of solid gold for just a second before the light shifts again, knocking you out of your trance. You see guards training in the field, and confidently approach the man you identify as the captain."Sir, if you would have me for a few seconds I need to make a request for employment." You say as you stand before the tall, helmeted man. His breastplate and greaves were made from a pale yellow metal, and emblazoned on the center were the roses of house Tyrell, a member of the house? No. Just a guard in presumably one of the royal family's personal retinue, and judging by the number of men under him, it's Mace's captain."And you, a beggar? What would you provide to the fucking guard boy, you're a little thin for this line of work don't you think?" The captain laughed, putting a hand on your shoulder " I'll give you a couple dragons lads, go buy yourself a loaf of bread and find a place to sleep."You stare him in the eye with an intensity that visibly shocks him, modern social awareness giving you an audacity these people aren't used to. "No. Sir. I will be a benefit to this guard, I'm smart, I'm quick. You can teach me how to survive in this city and I can be a loyal member of your service. Accept me and train me and I will work damn hard!"The captain seems pissed, before he tosses you a sword. You react quickly, grabbing the unfamiliar weight of the heavy blade. "Fine. Have it your way boy. ASSUME YOUR STANCE." He barks as he draws his own, longer blade. You quickly put up some shitty stance because several guards are laughing at you now. Roll 1d100, first roll gets it.
Rolled 75 (1d100)>>380601
Rolled 76 (1d100)>>380601
>>380605hidden sword champion? or we just not get killed?
>>380601>dragonsdid he really just offer to give us gold coins? taking that offer if he doesn't want us in the end :)
>>380608I mean we're an actor we probably have a bit of sword training for fight scenes
>>380601>You quickly put up some shitty stance because several guards are laughing at you now.It was all a ruseHAHHAHAA >inb4 we kill the guard captain
>>380608Loris's hidden sword champion ;)
>>380622As long as we're the one doing the stabbing, sure
>>380605The Captain brings his blade down crashing into yours, some sparks fly as your grip almost loses the blade but you manage to keep hold, he swings again and somehow you manage to block it from the left, and then the right. You're clumsy and tripling over yourself, and you're positive the Captain isn't coming full tilt at you. You block more hits, and get ballsy enough to swing back, the guards laugh harder when they realize you actually made contact with the Captain's hand, forcing him to drop his blade.The man looked as if he was ready to strangle you on the spot, but as he approached he placed a hand on your shoulder "Welcome beggar boy to the guard of his Lord Paramount Mace Tyrell. Keep the blade, it suits you. I'm Reginald, and you?"You are having a hard time keeping a confident composure, what with the stinging and numb sword arm you have from trading blows, but you nod your head and extend your right hand, "Isaac." He grips your hand and you almost see the slightest hint of a smile on his face. > Procede to the barracks> Try to join in on the tail end of the excercise > Other
>>380627Not wanting to be best buddies with The Knight of Flowers. Because ya really think he'd bend over for anyone but Renly?
>>380622>>380627IT WAS A JOKE
>>380631>> Procede to the barracks
>>380631>> Try to join in on the tail end of the excerciseLuck saved us this time, maybe not the next, so exercise it is!Somehow I think that Reginald sucks at blade work...
>>380631>> Try to join in on the tail end of the excerciseI think schooling these other guards while we're still in our undies will be a good way to earn their respect.>>380634I was just trying to avoid getting bummed dude
>>380631We won't starve now! Yay!
>>380650Unless we get schooled
>>380601>You stare him in the eye with an intensity that visibly shocks himThe captain will tell his House's spy master... will we be asked question during the night, with a blade on our neck?>>380631After the exercise: Get clean, get real clothes.. we're super tall, so do we even get clothes?
>>380631>> Procede to the barracksCant be looking scruffy while trainingGet that dank uniform on
>>380677We have to make it them respect us so let's do it dirty and scruffy
>>380682But if the nobles see us dirty as fuck and shitThey'll order some disciplinary action taken.I mean this is the city guard not some village militiaLets not die
>>380688Still the guards will probably respect a man who dressed like a better beat the captain and then beat them all wearing with no armor or we lose but they would expect that
>>380695>guards training in the fieldis it dueling or are the guards working in formation, fighting dummy soldiers (wooden)?
>>380648>>380642>>380639"Sir, may I join in on the training?" You ask, straightening your back for better posture. The Captain laughs, agreeing to it but commanding you as the greenhorn to clean the guards armor, clothing, and swords after the practice was finished, but you stood, cursing inwardly but determined to get in the man's good graces. You grip your blade and join a group of practicing soldiers. Among the small group you joined are 5 other men and boys your age or young by a few years, still adults by any measure here though. A tall man your height named Garett, red haired oddly enough, he seemed like a jovial fellow and you quickly took to his wit, as he seemed popular with the rest of the soldiers. The others, a short boy covered in muscle of no more than 14 name-days, Jerro, a chubby but rough looking man maybe a couple years older than you named with the simple name "Boar". For two hours, you and your now peers traded blows, suprisingly you seemed to really enjoy sword-play, weirdly reminiscient of the video games you played back home. You were bruised and slightly bloody by the end of the day, exhausted, but with a smile on your face. You felt good here. You headed to the barracks, and following suit with the others, waiting for everyone else to go first, you watch as they enter a large room with several pools of steaming water with copious amounts of red stained rags and bristled stones and brushes. They quickly, with practiced easy, shed their armor and undergarments in minutes, throwing them in piles by the pools, and grabbed fresh clothing from nearby bins. Some opting for personal clothing they had in lockboxes.You sit down at the cleaning pool and start scrubbing the mud from the worn leather armor pieces, dozens and dozens of sets of foul smelling clothes in an now empty armory of sorts. (Cont.)
>>380709By the end of the night you came back, hands cracked and sore after washing so much, the friends you made earlier led you to an empty bunk, and darkness quickly swept over. --- Flame. Crashing thunder. You're aware you're dreaming, giving you an odd sense of vertigo. You look down and see westeros and the modern world quickly swapping places wih one another, one is real, and suddenly it becomes fnatasy while the other is material.You awake sweating but rested, observing as the guards awake to the sound of the sept bells tolling once to announce the arrival of 5 a.m.The mornings and evenings quickly fall in to routine, two weeks of constant labor and practice. Early mornings of slopping the horse stalls, eating, and then joining the guards for training until dawn. Then they left on patrol, and you'd be left to maintenance the barracks. The hard labor was already beginning to show an improvement visually with both your sword play and physical appearence. Today you were finally to pick a group to patrol with, a pretty well-worn tradition in Mace's unit that they were allowed to experience the squad of their picking atleast once before being assigned. You will not be armed if you join a royal entourage, but will instead be a pack-mule for the guards on assignment. But if you do not go with the royals, full armaments will be provided, but will be far more dangerous by nature.Today is your "Day of Experience"> The Royal Retinue - Mace's Personal Guard - We will travel with the royal guard as Mace Tyrell prepares to visit King's Landing for several months. As stated before, as you are a rookie, you cannot be trusted with weapons unless deemed absolutely necessary. > The Palace Retinue - Stay in Highgarden and join the squad who takes control of the safety, maintenance, and patrols of the castle-town. This includes the slums if assigned, and other detestable parts of the city.> Margery Tyrell's retinue - You will stay in Highgarden and protect the royal family, primarily Margery Tyrell and sometimes her Grandmother. You will again not be armed unless given permission by the royals. > The "Gardeners" - Personal Retinue in charge of security in the outer reaches past the walls, often patrolling on horse back through the farmer villages on the perimeter. Only mounted training option and will be fully armed.
>>380714>> Margery Tyrell's retinue - You will stay in Highgarden and protect the royal family, primarily Margery Tyrell and sometimes her Grandmother. You will again not be armed unless given permission by the royals.Do we really really want to change Westerosi history in King's Landing? Or do want to try to bed... erm make friends with Margery Tyrell (and later Renly)?
>>380714>Highgarden and protect the royal family, primarily Margery Tyrell and sometimes her Grandmother. You will again not be armed unless given permission by the royals.Why not? Probably be yelled at constantly.
>>380729befriend pretty handmaidens, hear about the chaos outside the Reach, live the good life>>380714>royalsare they royals though? or highborn nobles...
>>380737The Lords Paramount are essentially Kings in their own lands, the royalty of the Reach would be a more apt term.
>>380729>>380725You grin as you think of how beautiful Margery will look in person, and not simply some actress trying to display her or words trying to describe her, but the blood and flesh seductress of kings herself. The Captain is informed of your decision and you are quickly run through your list of duties. " Your Duties-: Act as cupbearer for royal family members while in military encampment on the road. : You will serve the guards on duty at most shifts, tending to their horses and equipment, while training with them for several hours in the early mornings and night with blunted blades for practice. With your bundle made up of a hide sleeping pack, a small stone pot to boil water in, a wineskin and waterskin you managed to bum off your comrades, both full. Secured snugly to your back with the blunt blade, you stand at attention in the back of a large formation before the steps of the palace. Margery and her Grandmother are seen in the distance kissing the cheeks of their relatives, Mace's other sons. Today they were adressing the new assignment to their personal retinues for the first time. Margery starts walking closer and closer to the formation, and you can hear several bewildered gasps from the others. "Fuck I'd love to put a baby in her cunt" you hear Boar grunt next to you. You nod in agreement, heart racing as the lightly clothed beauty walked towards you, well, you and your 100+ other comrades. Her hair fell in auburn waves past an oddly tanned pale, angelic face, over her large breasts halfway to exposure in the light summer dress she wore. A thin lithe body, with taught soft skin wherever you laid your eyes. She was a goddess, and your body was responding as such, chafing uncomfortably against the metal buckles on the inside of your light armor. You laugh in agreement back at Boar quietly as Margery begins to speak." Hello! Hello all of you! We will have a grand time together, we shall." The pretty woman grinned widely, "Do you work well and be rewarded in turn, we Tyrells believe in our words 'Growing Stronger', and we do that by finding the quality among you. Be exceptional my men, be exceptional for your Lord." She shocked you with how elegant and well spoken she sounded, the harshness of modern language seemed barbaric next to the poetic melody of her soft but loud speech. She waves her hand and heads back to her Grandmother and brothers, Willas and Garlan, and they enter back in to the keep. The captain starts barking out orders to your squad of 20. You are first assigned to guard the royal quarters of all places, atleast the halls outside of it. You marched to your post with the squadron and set to work handing everyone their nightly meals from a steaming pot the cook had made earlier. Everyone set in before the shift started, and you were given leave for your nightly break, meaning you have night free and shifts during the following day. > What do you do with your 6~ hours of free time?
>>380766>"Fuck I'd love to put a baby in her cunt" you hear Boar grunt next to youFucking kek'd
>>380766Whats our pay?Are we allowed all around the palace?If so we take a stroll.We scout out the place and if we meet a lady or margery maybe we could introduce ourselves
>>380766Train more. Take those words to heart grow and become stronger
we should join the most benevolent lord
>>380776"You're paid in meals, clothing, and a bed to sleep in until you become a proper warrior." You hear the captain growling at the back of your mind, remembering an earlier conversation.The guard captain who assigned you says that you must stay either in the atrium, i;e the entrance to the palace, the kitchens, the in-door training rooms and barracks, sometimes the wash rooms when required to clean armor.
>>380766Pretty neat: Appear naked in Highgarden, get beggar clothes, convince the guard captain to hire us on the spot, get to be a cupbearer and private quarters guard for the royals. We pretty much made it for a commoner...>>380777Yeah, train more! We probably still lag behind the other guards as they're here for years already. Everyone will be impressed by our sword play - and looking good at the same time, M. looks out the window? :)
>>380777Agreed do >380776 for a bitthen we can train >>380777
>>380782>until you become a proper warriorso, we train and then get money!Can we practise our acting skills to keep them or is living in Westeros enough practise?
>>380777>>380783>>380784Determined to do right by the beauty who spoke earlier, you grab the blunted sword and head to the courtyard, to a walled off enclosure where many dummies and targets sat for training, and a few other young lords it seems who are either practicing with eachother, bashing away at a straw dummy, or shooting at them after pinning targets with tipless arrows.> How do you train? Any weapon in here is considered fair game if blunted or tipless. Be careful, as this is the royal training ground and you are a commoner, and these are young lords, not of high class, but lords nonetheless.
>>380777I got sick trips too
>>380797Use the dankest blunt longsword.
>>380803Do a rotation.1 hour sword * 31 hour bow * 3
>>380797blunt one-handed sword and shield, standard guard equipment. Show respect towards the lords, who are guests to your Lord and employer.
>>380808trying a bow might be useful too! We haven't tried it yet though... might be super hard without someone to show us the ropes.
>>380797Ask a noble to spar with you
>>380816Its pretty simpleI have used one But a maybe lord will help us. I mean these are tyrells not boltons or lannisters.Im sure they'll want their guards to "grow strong" :^)
>>380819>>380820Can a commoner ask a noble for advice though? Might want to ask Garett or Boar.
>>380823No we just practise and maybe a lord will notice us senpai Maybe even loris then we can show him our other sword But Op lets move onWe gonna train
>>380808>>380809>>380803You bow to the lords who nod to you in response out of tradition, and head to the equipment racks, you grab a wooden buckler and a normal length steel blade to practice.You stand at an empty set of three dummies and quickly get set in to your taught practice routine. Your muscles are sore with work but you have learbed to push through it and enjoy the exertion. You find your blade arm is becoming very responsive to your movements, the hours of daily practice, and now your own personal practice lending to a greater swiftness and strength to your blows. The lords seem to be complimenting you from afar, but with an oddly baiting tone to it."Come, duel one of us guard, show us how well you protect us!">????
>>380827Duel with one of them but allow them to win.
>>380827"My Lords, it would be my honour." stand ready to fight one. Can't refuse a noble, right... and it's practise
>>380827Accept Tell him you are a new guard but that just means winning will be an even bigger honour
>>380832>but allow them to winNo, they will feel slighted if we do that intentionally, they grew up fighting, probably beating us nicely, no need to amateurishly try to lose...
>>380827Bad idea. Just stick to the dummy.
>>380837>Bad idea.why? It's not like they will kill a guard of Lord Tyrell in his own home.
>>380837worst thing: they'll ridicule us, put us in our commoner place
Need a consensus
>>380836Their young nobles, they'll feel superior. I'd rather be ridiculed than have my head rolling down the executioners block.
>>380845Spar with one of them, try to disarm them
>>380845duel them and then we'll see how they react... we can always lose when it looks like they're not happy about how things are going...
>>380832No they want to know the castle is in good hands fight for real >>380849There tyrells not lannisters or boltons they have no reason to kill us if we beat them that and Margery would probably save us
>>380827I agree with >>380866 that we should fight our best. Whether or not we beat the lordling, we thank hikm for providing such a strong opponent and make a jokey offer for him to stay here and help us train.
>>380845SPAR WITH THEM
>>380870Do the best
>>380866>Margery would probably save us"That tall handsome fellow with the perfect theeth"... yeah :)Sparing now, yes, I want to know how much we improved in the weeks we trained
>>380866>>380861>>380858You sheath your sword and calmly changed your demeanor to that of a confident but respectable man, acting skills in use. You extend a gloved hand to the young lord who challenged you, and he stares hotly, sword unsheathed.He quickly sheathes the blade, and grips your hand. "It is an honor my lord, I am Isaac, of no house." You state calmly."Aye, I am Brian, third son in line for Brightwater Keep and House Florent." The broad shouldered man of your age, shaved and preened like a spoiled noble.Brian Florent beckons you to enter a small dueling ring, and you both draw your shield and blade to the ready.> How do you attack? First? Or let him strike?
>>380875Be defensive parry block attack when opening shows its self
>>380875Selyse Florent is married to Stannis...let him start, it's only polite.Looking forward to prevent Margery getting imprisoned by the High Sparrow in the future, Ser Osney meets the Highgarden dungeon....
>>380882( Cousins are staying in command of the castle is what I always assumed )
>>380875Take a defensive stance to be polite.
>>380875>FlorentsAw man. Let him start.
>>380875Enter a defensive stance and wait for him
>>380875Bait him with the sheild then attempt to parry with said shield so we can lightly tap him on the side as his sword arm goes flying
>>380886>>380885>>380882Your shield up protecting your torso you approach your opponent, sword at the ready while Brian cautiously examines you. He then raises his blade, and strikes, smashing in to your blade in a very predictable arc, if you were fighting dirty like you do with your comrades, you'd have punched the lordling in the jewels at that angle and won in an instant, but out of respect you disengaged, giving a few token strikes to show resistance. Brian Florent's face reddens with anger and the leather clad twenty-something strikes at you with fury, hard but unaimed blows. At any second you could disarm him, fuck, even castrate him. Clearly he learned swordsmanship as an art and not a survival technique like you, he was mincemeat if you wished.> How do you end the fight?
>>380896Disarm him "It seems we protect very well" then bow out of respect
>>380896Let him land some good hits and then just make him fall or some sort.
>>380896Fight without dirty tricks, try to disarm him, show him respect, "My Lord, it was my pleasure." and then leave
>>380896Avoid ' vulgar ' tactics like punching and kneeing the lordling but begin fighting aggressively.
>>380907>>380903>>380910>>380911The lordling really dissapointed you for practice, but he was the in-law relative of Stannis Baratheon himself so he must put up an image of a good fight or bad things could happen from the ridicule. You let him land a few blows on your sword, making it look like he had the upper hand, before hooking the blade up in a clean fashion, disarming him and holding the blade to his chest. You step back immediately and bow, "Good fight, my lord." You say, slightly fearful of his response. He nods and you stand, returning the gesture."We must fight again some time, Isaac, was it? My family is here on envoy from the Baratheons, we shall be here for many months, and we shall spar again." He again gives you his nod and leaves the room, his lordling friends following.You grin with excitement. You are definitively improving, beating a relatively wealthy noble with ease. Of course the man's skill was pathetic, but it is a sign of your growing ability. 4 hours remain of your break. You could cut sleep this shift and sacrifice your next off period to sleep, or take a nap and continue, or whatever else you may think of eh?> what next?
>>380924Ask the captain when we get to be a normal guard not some servant boy cuck fuck Say we want to patrol the whole castle and explore it
>>380924Take a nap and continue but first we need to wash up maybe see some fair maden at the wash rooms.
>>380924Explore high garden a bit? It must be a wondrous city!
>>380933this actually Then ask the captain about more freedom in the castle
>>380933+1 this, forget my other suggestion>>380934
>>380934We confined to some shit places
>>380933This please! Time for hijinks before the turmoil occurs
You guys know we have to make a gun at somepoint right?
>>380939>>380937>>380936>>380933You enter the barracks given to your unit, and unstrap the leather pads from your body, stripping to your undergarments you lay in a hammock and quickly fell to sleep.--A dreamless sleep fruited from hours of labor ended far too soon. You awoke three hours later and you trodded mostly naked beyond the cloth undershorts you had, a large scratchy towel in hand, and head to the bath houses of Highgarden, an entrance is carved in the back of the pool rooms from the barracks, a special area reserved for the guards and servants was sectioned off by a wall. It was separated by males and females, but the guard/servant section was the only place for both genders of servants. You saw Boar, naked as the day he was born with pudge hanging down covering the thick wormling between his legs. You chatted as you shed the cloth shorts and followed your brutish friend into the steamed water, you lean you head back and for a few minutes you phase out, just relaxed to the core, until you hear boar chatting with a female voice. You slightly crack an eye open and see Boar sitting at the edge of the water with a naked female serving girl, she had a little weight on her but she did seem attractive, inciting a rise from your own soldier under the white cloudy water. You almost blow your cover in shock as you hear Boar whisper "he's dead asleep, he won't know, and if he does h'ell fooking join me." As his hand slipped between her legs. > How do you proceed?
>>380953Conjure a shit eating grin and just laugh. Once boner is removed get out and tease them about having fun
>>380953Let boar do his thing as we walk out not giving a fuck
>>380957+1>>380953Are we cut? Most of Americans are, and will be the thing that make so different from the other men. Maybe woman here like a cut dick. :^)
>>380957this. not sharing with the Boar :) and looking for a prettier servant girl.>>380924And a noble already knows our name.
>>380957Teasing is all well and good, but let's not piss off the piggy eh?
>>380999tease in good humour, he's a buddy, can't be angry at us for that
>>380972For continuity's sake (and because i'm not cut myself hah) he's uncut.>>380957>>380965>>380968>>380972>>380973Eyes slit, you watch for several seconds more as boar slips down in to the water, head between the servant-girl's legs as she pathetically moaned. You noticed a boy no younger than fifteen in a nearby pool watching and... enjoying himself. The sight of the boy in that state, your friend, and the girl, were too much so you quickly grabbed a towel and jumped out, hiding your arousal as best as possible. You walked out back in to the dressing area and drop your towel, a couple of entering comrades whistle at your.. status, jokingly making grabs at it, removing the problem entirely. You dressed and left the room, invigorated for your beginning duties. ---The Captain was waiting at his desk when you entered, quill quickly scrawling a note, Maester behind him advising him on the correct wording. "Ah, yes, Isaac, come in." The man mused waving his hand without looking up. You stand before his desk at the ready, sword on your belt and shield on your back, having been informed of permission to wear arms by the messenger who summoned you. The Captain spat in a nearby bucket and looked at you, "You seem to have made friends," he said menacingly, stamped the quill back in the ink. "A Florent requested you be on Margery's Personal guard with your fighting prowess. At her permission." The lowborn Captain growled. You looked worried, not saying a word."And." He said. And? And what? You gulp. He speaks - "And she has accepted you to her personal guard at his request." He grumbles again, "You will not personally interact with her, but you will keep watch of her at all hours. We are soon to travel to the Baratheon Stronghold in the Stormlands for a feast to the engagement of Margery Tyrell to Renly Baratheon, and you are to keep her safe on the road and in the keep. We will leave in 4 months." You nod, looking down at an opened letter with the sigil of House Baratheon, Robert Baratheon has Declared Ned Stark the Hand of the King, and is now travelling back from the North with his new Hand. Interesting, the events confirm your suspicions that they follow the book plotlines you knew of. > The reply?
>>381012"I shall serve with Honor sir, and hopefully not make too much of a fool of myself."
>>381012>>381021this +plus "You training regime seems to have worked very well on me. Thank you, Captain!" can't have the Captain being angry at us for being successful
>>381012This a great honor sir
>>381021>sirhe's not a sir though, not knightedThat Florent guy was weak but at least he seems to accept talent when he sees it. Margery's Personal guard is like the best job there is... not ogling but watching for danger :)
>>381012It would be an honour
>>381032>>381021You bow your head to your Captain, the main who took you in when you needed it most. "I shall serve with Honor sir, and hopefully not make too much of a fool of myself eh?" The Captain almost grinned, "Thank you for your training, it has served me to well as you can see." he nods, dismissing you, and you head out to meet Margery's Royal guard, your new comrades. Boar and the others give you massive hugs before you venture off to the inner rooms of the royal quarters, to the final small guard station inside, where 9 bunks lined the walls with copious storage lining the rest. A woman, probably 4 years your senior sits there, mending a breastplate with the Tyrell sigil. She introduces herself as a haindmaiden to lady Margery, Elinor Tyrell, a distant relative. She was a dainty girl with bright white skin, and a green and gold summer dress like most of the Tyrell women wore as you've seen. You chat about nothing special while you unpack you gear in to the assigned bunk. A list of tasks, including your age old favorite, cleaning the barracks,was laying on the bed claiming that they had to be done before the regiment arrived at the end of the next shift. The shifts were split between two "halls" one shift would sleep and relax while the other 'hall' would be on active duty, and on twelve hour rotations they switch, down to 6 hour rotations in the field. You would join the next rotation in 3 hours, but for now you quickly tidied up the barracks, Elinor helped greatly and you finished the tasks in less than a halfhour. > What do you do with the rest of your time?
>>381053Get some books for reading on the trip. Preferably some sword fighting manuals or science related ones.
>>381059+1We should also bring some books on alchemical since we can make some cool magic stuff including gunpowder. Also with the books it'll show we can read to anyone looking.
>>381059With a fresh set of clothes you venture in to the open areas of the library. A man sits behind a small desk, large tomes around him like ledgers, the maester, it seemed, of Highgarden.You ask the rules of loaning books, and he says that you may take one book of choosing with you in return for your name, and upon your next visit of the keep within the next year, you will return it. > What subjects are we looking for?
Introduce yourself as Isaac, and try to befriend the maester. Might come in handy.
>>381077Alchemy, sword fighting, and A guide to getting swole.
>>381077> What subjects are we looking for?Heraldry. We'll recognize everyone.>>381082yes! >>381053>Elinor Tyrell>friend to M., noble>MC leaves, gets some books... wut?
>>381077Science is useless if we got a basic western education because GoT sciences is only on a medieval level. Magic is most likely impossible to get outside the Citadel or directly in Asshai.Sword fighting, war tactics and alchemy.>>381082+1
>>381082+1 Always make friends :^) try to get a extra book>>381085+1Let's see if their a book with that many subjects. If not then try to find with duo subject of swole and sword fighting.
>>381077Can we learn to dance too? Seems like something to do as entertainment around there, also ladies love it.
>>381098Being a theater faggot I think dancing and improv are some of our best talents.
>>381102Ah, true! Instant festivities hit!
>>381102I know about theater faggots and they get a hard on dancing and acting in plays. Also being a theater fag the main character watched and read the GoT books.
>>381113>acting in playsMC is prob. still in denial, acting as a royal guard, in a GoT play, first headless guys we see... breakdown
>>381130Fuck your right.This is bad news.
>>381136Here the plan, stop being a faggot this is Isaac long time dream come true. So he was to man up, drop his balls and get to it.
>>381092>>381093>>381098>>381102You consider buying a book on science, then realize you know infinitely more than these men knew about, well atleast yours, the natural world. Opting instead for a book on combat or alchemy, you wish to enlist the Maester for help. "Excuse me!" the man looks up happily, "yes, son, how may I help?" you explain your situation and the old man helps you find a book detailing the concoctions of useful poultices, medicines, and poisons useful for soldiers. You thank him immensely for the help, and offer to come by soon and help him out in the library. Okay guys! that's it for now. I'm tired as fuck and need to sleep. Hope y'all liked the first installment. Keep this thread bumped and eventually tomorrow around the same time I'll keep going!
Shouldnt he ask if we can readTake a book on strength training
>>381142Oh shit nigger your right. Plot armor out the ass. Still think we're going to make a will save.
>>381145Favourite quest manIm glad I tried it. almost thought it was gonna die Love the writing
>>381145Thanks it was nice threas good start should start a twitter to let us know when the next time your running
>>381145Thanks for running this quest!
>>381145Couldn't sleep, smoked a bowl, and now I'm back, fuck.=====You and the maester browse many books together, but in the end there were no manuals on sword fighting, rather tales of legendary soldiers that the maester said was bound to stay in Highgarden. You buy the book of Medicine for 10 dragons, your measly savings from the past weeks.Returning to the new Barracks, you saw several men asleep in the beds, the watch you were to join after this break. You lay down in your hammock and slowly dirft to sleep, used to the snore of soldiers around you. -- Mornings started to gain a pattern, wake up, piss, train with swords till breakfast, train more, and then wait on standby to meet with her Majesty if she wished to travel anywhere, which she often did to the slums of the city to distribute strategically placed donations in sight of many moble witnesses. On these trips, you'd examine the poor, you never really heard much abot the common folk in the novels. They seemed well off here, in Highgarden at least. Decently fed and not too dirty overall, with clean smelling streets, life must not be too bad here for the commoners, explaining the lax attitude of the early nobles.On one such of these trips, you notice a suspicious man in a hood walking towards your congregation, hand glenching something on his belt. You are the closest to him, and you are armed.> How do you respond?
>>381398 Interpose yourself and alert the others
>>381398FUCK YES You are probably my favourite Op now
>>381398Raise the alarm. Move to take down the hood man but be careful if he was a potion or a dagger. If he does prepare to fight.
>>381420>> How do you respond?>Interpose yourself and alert the others"Stop right there! Show me your hands!" disarm him, be the hero.
>>381398Any more interactions with Elinor Tyrell? The occasional wink, smile etc.?
>>381398Move in the way of the prep and ask him to stand down.
>>381458>ask himWe can use our stage voice. At least it will make him stop for a second, strong voice can do that.
>>381420>>381422>>381438>>381440>>381458"STOP RIGHT THERE." You use in your most commanding stage voice possible. The man stares and looks at you, and a look of palpable fear is seen in his eyes as he lifts his hands and the dagger is seen, he charges at you and you ready your weapon and shield for the oncoming assault -Roll 1d100 First post is OFFENSIVESecond post is DEFENSIVEThird post is SPECIAL (if critical failure or success, something happens)
Rolled 23 (1d100)>>381475
Rolled 15 (1d100)>>381475
Rolled 69 (1d100)>>381475Come on put those training hours to work!
Oh shit nigger, I bet we take the stab straight to the gut and judo flip him.
>>381518we probably tried a kick and got punched in the nuts.
>>381520We probably tried to attack with the sword but It was shattered by his dagger
>>381478>>38147923/15Back to the training yard...Maybe a handmaiden can nurse us back to health as we caught the dagger meant for Lady Margaery with our own body... on purpose of course
>>381562>Maybe a handmaiden can nurse us back to healthNah we bought a book about Medicine we've got to somehow get a retrun on investement.I seriously hope we've read it.
>>381569We have 21st century knowledgeWe'll be fine unless he hits a vital organ
>>381479or do we have armor enough to withstand a dagger stab?
>>381574>stab or slash an artery.That ain't a vital organ but we'd still die in a minute.>>381577it's a dagger stab, as long as it's not too long and not very well placed we'll live.
>>381574>21st century knowledgevs blood poisoning, poison or something? Dunno, the Maesters seem pretty competent though. >>381475>look of palpable fearcan't be a professional. Scapegoat? Real assassin comes from opposite direction?
>>381625op died of marijuana poisoning
>>381625He was too blazed and uncut to finish the post before he passed out of too much canadan blood running through his veins.
>>381697Should we try to continue without OP or just wait? I kinda wanted to see what other shenagins occured...
>>381843You know what I'll like a quest about a modern person going to the elder's scroll world. Their the cat people, sexy lizards if that your thing and other fun things we can do during that place. We could go to daggerfall, take a ship all the way to places unexplored, fight dragons etc...
>>381843Also OP is sleeping since he say he was going to sleep then smoked blazed it so I expect he's pass out high.But if we're get our asses stab we'll force to rest up. During that time we can get close to the person we're protecting since we stood a stab for her. Maybe show her we know our stuff about future tech.
>>381862I'm here, but I fell asleep, gonna be away for awhile. Totally down to run an elder scrolls one alongside this one
>>381875Get some sleep if you need it OP, can't run shit if you're passed out.
>>381875(I'm planning on running this quest for several months atleast, so don't worry about it dissapearing. )
>>381888>>381875Get some sleep when you need it. I'll stay by your side. Also get a twitter it helps.Also that elder scroll world is a good idea if you need a change from GoT for a while you could switch it up time from time.:^)
>>381899>inky followed the same thread as you as an anon.>we fucked up the same rollJesus christ we're quest slayers now because of our rolls.What are the odds.How often are we going to roll 1d100 and literally kill quests?
>>381917Looks like we have the same taste in quests. I wouldn't have guess that was you unless you have your name.But I think we'll be alright since we just started at worst we have to rest for a month reading.
>>381930> worst we have to rest for a month reading.you mean at best right?i think it's more likely we'll end being poisoned or at least wounded for 2 months.But yeah a minor wound would let us time to read.If we didn't have to sell the book because we wouldn't have a job anymore and would have to find a way to produce income.Not that i hate this kind of situation, i actually find it thrilling to have to do complex rational thinking to get out of situation which is hard will get harder as the story plays out.But yeah Highgarden is likely the best place to be vunerable at since we're not gonna have an army march on us or be burned at the stake or die in the middle of a desert due to starvation and dehydratation.We do have it easy.
>>381946Well since we'll injured trying to save a noble we don't have to march anywhere spending our time reading and maybe getting it good with the nobles.The real question is which house should we help for the bid to the thone?Do we help this house since it's the closest really there lots of things to think about.I see us serving as a researcher in one of the houses in our future that we'll be worth more than a King's ransom.
>>381954Well one thing is for sure I don't want the Starks to die. I want to support daenerys or the other lil shit. Fuck the lanisters. The reach is meh. Greyjoy might not be the best idea. Maybe help the Aryns a wee bit? Dorne I'm neutral on
>>381954>The real question is which house should we help for the bid to the throne?this beg another question, how rigid is the story compared to the canon?>>381968See in Highgarden it's a bad time to be against the Lannisters since the stromland will likely try lots of things and fail, Dorne will stand around and do nothing for a long time and the north is fucked as soon as the red wedding happen if it does.Also fucking with the canon too much may mean some event don't happen.aka, bran doesn't become a magical time travelling kid and Jon snow don't do all the awsome shit he's supposed to do because L+R=J.I personally think we should stay in Highgraden a bit until crazy shit like the Death of Joffrey happen then we maybe go to Redwyne then fuck off either on adventure to Tyr,Myr,Bravos or further away into Essos, but not too far or we'll get fucked by slavers.
>>381968Something that I wanted to do In GoT from whomever we help is go get the islands off the summer islands? I think that's what they are.Also while we all know what happened in GoT I want us to explore and do stuff in the places never talk about in the books. Like the lands to the east and all that.But that so far in the future, we right I'm happy we're we are now.I want a pet dragon. >>381986I like the idea of going east since it's something different.Also Essos knew as the trading hub so if we want we can start a tech trading place. Trading our tech to the higest bidder without being forced to give it up.
>>381986How weird would it be if we deserted and disappeared into the night, got into the service of Robert Baratheon and stopped the squire from giving him shit wine?
>>381994All events we know don't happen. Lose the skill to look into the future. :^( Get stab in the gut in a dark alley for doing such a thing.
>>381994That would fuck the whole story.It would literally fuck Westeros tho also.A war Danny vs Rob Baratheon vs White walkers and only Westeros would lose.Also if L+R=J would get exposed Robert would kill Jon snow and it could really create a divide with Ed stark.Meaning we'll likely look at a Stark+Dorne vs Stromland+King'sland+Lannisters.Which would only fuck the realm even more before the White walkers.War will happen eitherway.This world is kindda doomed anyway.>>381991>Also Essos knew as the trading hub so if we want we can start a tech trading place. Trading our tech to the higest bidder without being forced to give it up.bringing copied scrolls to Essos is actually smart.
>>381994Or convinced Robert to made Ned his heir by predicting a few easy events like his goring by the boar, Cersei's conversation with him about love, etc. and when he lays dying knowing this mysterious man predicted it all, Ned Stark is crowned King on the Iron Throne. Robb Stark is made his heir, and Bran ( his replacement) and raised them to become warden of the North and lord of Winterfell. We then inteoduce Bean to the Three Eyes Crow, he reveals Jon's Parantage, and Jon Targaryen is named Ned Stark's heir to the iron throne
>>382018Oh god your raping the continuity
just pointing our, 10 dragons are an insane amount for a book. A good suit of unadorned armor costs 4 dragons. You'd probably get a few dragons a year as a guard.A good meal at an inn costs a few coppers, while a horse costs a single dragon.
>>382018Yeah but Ned is too honorable to take what is due to Stannis the Mannis.He'd refuse sadly and Stannis is a crazy fuck who burn childrens and fuck priest to give birth to demons.Also the Lannisters would be butthurt and Tywin would literally have a heart attack.Also if they didn't have to go north Bran would have never went to the wall in the first place.All thoses setups are toooo perfect.Also who else is hype for Jon marrying his aunt next season?It's so obvious that he's going to marry danny, i mean he's the only ruler of westeros that is Male and single apart from little finger and the small autist king of the vale.but yeah GoT theory talk apart, let's not fuck with the cannon.
>>382049If we fuck with the cannon. We don't know what will happened.Lets just try to get rich for now, or something else I'm open to ideas what we should do.
>>382049But....we have too
>>382049This just reminds me of that CYOA chart of being dropped off in Westeros
>>382049So we have to work to overthrow stannis' rebellion, and eventually remove the lannisters from power when our chosen lord to support takes over. We need to figure out who that is, because Dany won't be powerful for some time, Ned probably won't believe us, Stannis is smart but we'd have to start worshipping R'hllor, Renly ia gay so we could try taking Loras' spot, and hiring a red priest to protect renly.
I know nothing about GoT but I do enjoy stories like this, can someone give me a rundown of things that happen in the city we are in now?
>>382067Oh, we could always support Margery, become a confidant and put her up as Queen.
>>382071I don't know much about the reach so someone else will have to teach us
>>382071the tyrells hang out for a while, while Joffery and Rob Stark fight it out. After a bit, they will march to side with Joffrey.The books don't focus on Highgarden
>>382058>If we fuck with the cannon. We don't know what will happened.Maybe we could loot Ice at the Red Weeding.Since we're from Highgarden the Freys might give us some hospitality.Having the biggest valyrian steel sword is a good idea.Another pretty consequenceless action we could do is studying wildfire.I'm pretty sure we'll need some again pretty much anything that'll fight a war against whichever side we pick.>>382067>So we have to work to overthrow stannis' rebellion, and eventually remove the lannisters from power when our chosen lord to support takes over. No no no, you don't understand.If Rob baratheon die, Ned will support Stannis like he always did in the show, he might end up hand of the king and try to fix the shit that Stannis the Mannis "zealot" baratheon does but he'll never betray the actual succesion line, he's too honorable.Also we'd have to fuck the lannister because Ned would simply demonstrate that Cersei is an incestuous whore.Tywin would shit brick, Cersei would die of SHAME *bell noise* and Jaime would do Jaime stuff and be the assholish knight that he is and likely end up the king of Casterly Rock.Also Ned would give a fuck about Stannis worshiping R'hollor since he worshipped the old gods all along.So yeah it could be good.But Saving Ned is no small task for a single man.Especially since he'll die in less than like 2 or 3 months.
>>382089I really don't read or watch GoT the info I get from it is from a ck2 mod of GoT so I'll you come up with the plans. While I'll help when I can, like knowing not to tell everyone we know the future. If any lord figures this out without us someone to protect us were fucked.Martin Luther the German didn't get killed for years since he got a German prince protecting him. :^)
>>382140*I'll let you come up with the plans
>>382140>ck2 mod of GoTaw shit all this mad gameplay of aegon the conqueror is coming back to me.11/10 would fuck both sisters again.but more seriously get yourself the audio book and th pdf or just watch it, it's like 50 hours of fun.We could ally Ed if we save his ass, like pretend we're some sort of psychic of the old gods.Impress him straigh off the bat by popping the L+R=J or simply warning him subtly about the fact that the lannisters are up to no good.
>>382158I loved that part and it shows that dragons are the shit.I'll try reading when I have the chance. I don't know every detail but know lots of shit will go down and I'll support you if that what you think it best.We should try to limit the chaos here, but always make us number one.I really want to go get us a dragon egg, and controll the summer islands after dealing with the natives. In that mod I really like the east side of the world since it's so much different. Also legal slaves.
>>382182The master plan is going to be1 save Ned and robert2 fuck the lannisters a new one3 serve Margery faithfully because at this point we are kind of inclined to.4 fuck off an explore the eastSound like a game plan?
>>382196You forgot be best friends with tyrion
>>382182>I really want to go get us a dragon eggUnless we book it to essos and try to steal danny's eggs we don't stand a chance.There's 3 dragons eggs left in the world and she has all of them and will be hatching thoses soon.>control the summer islands after dealing with the nativesthey're not that depicted in the cannon, not shown in the Series and barely scratched in the books so yeah.We could do worldbuilding there or just leave it as obscure as it is.But yeah our best odds at doing some fancy shit is studying in the citadel, maybe learn some coold stuff from archmaester marwyn by working with him, he'll go to essos sometime anyway.>>382196>1 save Ned and robertsaving Ned and Robert isn't compatible they'll fight each other if Jon snow's true lineage is revealed.>2 fuck the lannisters a new oneagreed, but tyrion will suffer and frankly he did nothing wrong.>3 serve Margery faithfully because at this point we are kind of inclined to.depends they might fuck the stability of the realm and ally the lannisters anyway.>4 fuck off an explore the eastthat we'll likely do with marwyn since he's literally the guy with the most magic knowledge in the realm.If he's going to join either Danny or Rhaegar's other son which would depend on wether he's with varys or just a random guy going to Essos.Maybe he's going to Asshai.Who knows we'll have to talk to the guy.>>382207Might be impossible given that his brother will go mad over the affair being discovered and his father will shit a house and this time an actual physical one.
>>382196>>382207You guys know the plot, I know other things just as long we get rich and after some time get married to a hot babe with some power I'm alright. I want us to have power that we can have some holdings of our own without the kingdoms trying to fuck us over with every turn. Maybe get a dragons and be a start a trading empire.
>>382218>I want us to have power that we can have some holdings of our own without the kingdoms trying to fuck us over with every turn. Maybe get a dragons and be a start a trading empire.yeah it's not ck2 level of easy...We will never get dragon because we have Targaryen blood and we'll likely never marry a good house without some proper skill and at least a good amount of support, also having our own terrain without a liege is like unimaginable unless we go to Essos with King's Landing Wildfire caches.
>>382217I like us some world building and do some cool shit not placed in the books. The east has a lot of promise, but my knowledge is limited. We can fuck up a lot of shit or just fuck off and do our own thing. Either or I'll down.
>>382232>The east has a lot of promise, but my knowledge is limited. We can fuck up a lot of shit or just fuck off and do our own thing. Either or I'll down.Maybe we could go fight the White walker ON THE OTHER SIDE of the planet., Essos and Westeros are likely linked and maybe to the north of Asshai where some white walker have been sighted might be a way to go to beyond the wall in Essos.Maybe we can go there and have our fun adventure and become the Three eyed crow.Right now we have options.
>>382218That sounds good if we play our cards right we can marry Margery go to the summer islands and be a merchant prince with our own little country
>>382230To get that support we can be the future knowing sword guard. With some tech thrown in as well, so small things no need for gunpowder from the start. We should in time help someone know the future that we'll get us support. Also we could make up a house so at least we have something to build up.
>>382196We're probably too late to save Ned and Robert. We might save Renly though
>>382249>so small things no need for gunpowder there's no gun powder in most of the world, maybe in Yi ti?>Also we could make up a house so at least we have something to build up.Or just keep our regular name and marry the only daughter of some almost infertile lord.
>>382253We do what will work for us. I'll just throw some ideas until I read the books. Let's keep gunpowder a secret since that will change things so hard.
>>382253All of our greatest power lies in our ability to know the future we can create exactly. If we manipulate events to the right point and make another choice, we become the strongest people in the world
>>382263This ability is dead as soon as we do something significant like saving Ned or Renly, all the decision of character like Varys and little finger then will change and we'll get fucked over.It would be best to save Ned or Renly and then fucking off to the citadel, learning how to make wildfire and stdying under mage marwyn then going to essos, maybe getting fireworks from Yi ti then fucking off either to Danny or Asshai and fighting white walker.
http://forum.choiceofgames.com/t/so-i-made-a-game-of-thrones-house-generator-in-choicescript/6293/3here you guys go for a house creator. I have wifi dying soon so please share to anyone relevant.
>>382272Obelix It's nice playing with you. :^)
Why are there so many trip and namefags?
>>382645Because OP is sleeping and we were discussion the plans for the future we used trips.
>>382645Because self insert fanfiction invariably attracts the worst kinds of faggots.
>>382272>>382343Oh damn Can't I have one quest to myself Please go back to your civs
>implying a guy whose been training for a month at most can (easily) beat a man that's trained for his whole life to fight.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZHz3TEbRJM
>>382886We have modern knowledge, that trumps lots of things. Would have been better if our background was a super nerd or martial artist type, but we voted on being a theater fag boy. Let's just hope we helped out some nerds and became their freinds when they got stuck in theater class and we learned their ways.
>>382839No M8 :^) I'll give us votes in this quest keeping it alive.
>>382915>implying actors can't be massive nerds or incredibly fitI know guys who've learned swordplay for roles, and have gone on to get degrees that I can't pronounce.
Might I make a little suggestion, Make a note detailing the most recent events that are going to go down in canon, only a few. Give it to Margary and ask her to give it too her grand mother. Maybe say something along the lines of in roughly X months the king is going to have an accident in a boar hunt and list a few more details. Only tell her, then carry on as normal until we get sent for when the shit hits the fan.
Just read through this whole thing and came to the realisation that you guys aren't too bright are you? >Choose an actor>Take a job as a guardNow, I get it if you guys don't want to powergame, but all things considered, maybe taking a dangerous job that requires no brainpower right off the bat isn't a great idea? If you needed coin and a roof over your head quick, you could have done a single man performance of one of the famous plays from your world, which considering the acting ability and knowledge of timeless masterpieces from our world, you could have easily gotten yourselves some starting coin.You could also have used your acting skills to fabricate yourselves a persona that'll allow you to get an easy start. For example, you could have went to the temple and said that you're on a pilgrimage, but you got robbed of your clothing.
>>382253Gunpowder is literally just saltpeter, charcoal and sulfur. It's not hard to get the materials for it, it's just getting ratios right.I'm surprised you don't remember this from chemistry class or do they not teach this to you?
>>383114Anon you don't get it we choice a guard so we get gains. Also we get to be in the palace, allowing movement to talk about the nobles about our future sense. Playing as a actor will just have us get money not really get close to the royals, only if we get renown so going as a guard was a good idea as we can get muscles and tell the future. Their a risk but it's worth it for the gains.We'll going to be sword fighting in duel best we learn.
>>383114Okay, enough whining, let's see what we can work with here. Guard job does actually come with some prestige, so we could theoretically gain some support from the people if we'd do our job right. With sufficient amount of prestige and support from people, we could theoretically speaking fabricate a claim, stating that we're of an old bloodline that ages past became irrelevant, but has risen once again to answer the obligations of one's noble blood.With the knowledge of the genealogy of the nobility and the extinct houses of westeros, we could create a family line whose existence cannot be disproven, thus making the claim valid to criticism.
>>383127Nigger this is not ck2. We get a claim by killing famous people and feeding the poor, traveling the east and fucking with the magical arts. Claims come in power, it's a universal rule.
>>383127>against criticismAnyhow, as long as it's an official looking document, which considering our level of literacy we can probably make as long as we see a bit of reference material, nobody will really question it. After all, we're sufficiently learned to pass off as one and what's another landless noble?
>>383129Considering how much stake they put into bloodlines in westeros, fabricating a claim is definately a way to bypass that. I mean Targs despite losing their right to rule and despite Dany being woefully incompetent, they still got support because if their bloodline.
>>383139I think we should start playing smart, get in with the Maesters and the Queen of thrones, go full schemer. Tell them we have infomation, pedict an event coming up tell Margey and her grandmother, when it happens we have proved our story. Then move in the background and use what we know of our world to power game. Whats the point of knowing all this otherwise.
>>383147We can't look crazy so just keep the predicting to a minimum can't play out hand on the go. Just one as a side thing and once it happens we'll be bump up and have a better job and pay and will be really useful in whoever we help.We don't have to help The Reach, but then again which kingdom is worth helping in the throne
>>383147Nope, I got it. We fuck every major female character. Now that's respectable as fuck. Screw the east, we only go there for dany. Fuck magic, makes beauties turn into hags. Let's just fuck em.
>>383077That sounds pretty good senpai But has chance for execute
>>383114This anon amirite?No but seriously who would want to see a play with one actor who looks like a beggar Also no propsMy guard plan has worked so fucking well so far
>>383222Anon don't be so proud of yourself
>>383225As long as you make them laugh and show that you've got talent, it doesn't matter if you're a beggar looking guy. Single actor doing a comedy sketch is not exactly unheard of amongst street performers.Alternatively if you don't wanna do one man comedy performance, then you can also join up a mummers troupe. Just saying that guard job has a lot of strings attached and is a dangerous job. Two things that you don't want right off the bat until you've decided which horse you wanna back.
>>383229>proud >mePick one
I would like to point out that we just got lucky our first fight, and the second fighr was against some faggot that was clearly a horrible fughter. There's a reason we're still the bitch boy, even for Margery's guard. We aren't some shpeshul swordsman who wants to be a guard so much - he's a teenager who just weeks ago found himself naked in a strange place, with no allies or friends. He's surviving, and he sees a better chance at being alive as the guard bitch-boy, and eventually guard himself, netting us some coin to refill our lost savings we spent on that book, get us some personal equipment so we don't have to ateal when we leave, etc.Right now we should be plotting while we protect murgury
>>383249>teenager who just weeks ago found himself naked in a strange placeSo true. I can understand some people's wish to powergame but reading the story so far, I enjoy the student actor angle. The protagonist is no tech wiz, child genius or survivalist, but more of an average sporty guy with super-memory for the GoT universe (books+tv) - that strangely appeals to me. And not having met and interacted with important characters so far, keeps me immersed (got some strong expectations how canon characters should behave).
Im surprised we aint playing more into the fact that we have meta knowledge, place bets at the coming tournament in the capital. Maybe get ourselves to kings landing to be Loras's guard for it. Give Stark a heads up, tell him if a specific set of events unfurl he should expect the following. We may save Ned Stark but to be honest the war of five kings could still occur but with Ned instead of Rob.
>>383259Nah, it would be different because House Stark (if Ned were alive) would pledge themselves to Stannis, instead of going independent, other kings get btfo pretty fast by that alliance
>>382016>A war Danny vs Rob Baratheon vs White Walkers and only Westeros would lose. To be fair, Dany's pretty weak until her dragons grow up and her army composition is absolute garbage against the heavy cavalry and castles that westeros has.Take away the dragons and she's just a girl with bunch of troops that can't do shit against heavy armor.>Also if L+R=J would get exposed Robert would kill Jon snow and it could really create a divide with Ed stark.In the books it was not stated that Jon is the son of Rhaegar, but even if he was, he's at the wall and there's not much to be done about that. Not to mention they wouldn't fight a war over something like that considering they're friends.>Meaning we'll likely look at stark+dorne vs stormland+ king'sland + lannistersOr there's not going to be a war, except possibly for the subjugation of lannisters since Robert might choose to revoke all their titles and redistribute their lands.>This world is kinda doomed anywayNot if the wall holds.
>>383259placing bets, ok. But changing the timeline... I prefer the existing order of events desu. I can imagine the MC supporting the the Tyrells (as he serves them now) and preparing for the White Walker threat ...
>>383268But whats the point? Are we going to let the High Sparrow blow them all away? Are we going to let the Sparrows gain power? Why not alter things? Even to benefit the Tyrell?Should we save any of the Stark children when it hits the fan? Why not save Ned? Why simply exist when we can change things quite possibly for the better? If we act through the Queen of Thorns we'd be invisible. Just come slightly odd guard? We gonna try to save Oberyn?
>>383274We should kidnap Ned
The cloaked man raises a small dagger high and charges you, his intent is clearly lady Margery, and you are the only one who can stop him. The supply-pack the elder guards were having you carrywas filled with all of the maintenance supplies for the Lady's carried transportation.You attempt to bash the man with your shield, but he ducks effortlessly out of the way from the shoddy attempt, he is about to plunge the knife through the wooden wall of the transport before you tackle the man and feel the dagger sliding deep in to the back of your thigh as the man stabbed desperately downwards at you. You grip your fist and with the burst of adrenaline from the intense pain, begin beating the living shit out of the man in front of you until your fellow guards help you up. Lady Margery ordered to be carried back to the Palace, and the trip for charity was effectively ended while you got your first ever sips from the milk of the poppy.A sensation similar to strong pain medication hit Isaac almost immediatly, in the cloth stretcher he was drowsy, by the time he was in the carriage and eventually Highgarden's Infirmary? Completely delirious or passed out on different intervals.---During your sleep, again you see strange images of your home world with the universe of A Song of Ice and Fire. It looks like a flat disk, on one side the depiction of the real world, on the other the depiction of Game of Thrones. It spins heavily, and by the time it slows a painful throbbing shoots through your thigh and you awake with a yell. You throw back the thin cover the Maester must have put over you and looked at the wound as best you could. A red, stitched would about an inch wide was swollen there, throbbing with the beat of your heart, pain matching in step.Again the Maester feeds you milk of the poppy to sleep, and over the next two weeks the Maester helps wean you back in to walking again. Slowly after you had first awoken from your coma, the wound he said would take atleast a couple months to properly heal, but walking would be possible with a wooden crutch after a month.Time in the infirmary of sorts was boring. Time was spent in pain, high on the milk, talking to the Maester, or masturbating senselessly.You and the Maester had grown closer over this time, he would tell you many interesting stories about the city, none that help you in a strategic way, but still interesting tid bits non-theless > How do you plan to spend the bed ridden time? You currently have had no guests, probably because they were busy working.
>>383280> How do you plan to spend the bed ridden time? You currently have had no guests, probably because they were busy working.Talk with the Maester, learn how he takes care of flesh wounds, ask to get your alchemy book you bought to learn some while you can't do anything else. How's Elinor Tyrell?>>383274I'm up for saving the Tyrells from blowing up or even get imprisoned. Rescuing Sansa Stark sounds fine too.
>>383280At least, we played the hero and prevented the Lady M. to get hurt. We better learn to tackle would-be assassin without being out of the game for a month...
>>383280Drop some medical bomb shells on the Maester, lets get a few things up to scratch, a little knowledge sharing I think. It'll show them we are more than meets the eye and when what we tell them is helpful we earn trust2) See if we can go to Kings Landing to acompany Loras Tyrell to the coming Torniemant...oh it's not being announced well when the King does do me a solid and let me go would you.>>383283We need to drop hints to the Maester's...I mean it, lets be the arm of the Maester conspiracy of sorts. Plus we'll get to meet other characters.
>>383283OK idea for things that won't throw stuff too outta whack.1) Get Sansa Stark out of there, hopfully the same for Arya.2) Maybe save a few more of the Stark me3) Let Cat know little finger betrays Ned at his most dire moment4) Warn Renly of the coming Shadow babyThat'll do for now.
>>383285>Drop some medical bomb shells on the Maesterwhich a college student knows about... bacteria which you can't see or proof, what else... It all reminds me of The Man Who Came Early.>>383285>drop hints to the MaesterAbout future events? OK, make us more important. Can we say we see visions instead of being accused of being a spy? Though I would still prefer to keep the timeline instead of going somewhere totally different.
>>383285I kinda like this idea, being part of the Maester conspiracy, but I feel we would be a threat to them, we personally know more about the natural world (besides Marwyn technically?) than every maester in the freaking world combined. They won't like that.
>>383290>know more about the natural world [...]than every maester in the freaking world combinedDo we though? College kid, not a chemistry or biology or medical nerd... and no engineering AutoCAD available - is our modern theory knowledge really that useful? Modern methods often require many tools which themselves are difficult to produce even by experts and factories.>Maester conspiracyWould give us access to all the houses, would be cool.>>383287>Warn RenlyTyrell hegemony, I like it :). Good ideas.
>>383294We would be on par with a maester in bio But with other things out modern knowledge propels is far ahead
>>383287You forgot get boned by loras or bone loras depending on his preference
>>383289>>383290start writing our bio text books out, resperation, diagrams of the human body. Maester's are worried about Quiburn doing it but we can show we already know, no need to cut people up. We can show how each body part functions in more detain, nutrition, psychological/mental stuff. Hell even stuff from our basic history/chemistry classes is enough to understand warfare on a whole new level.>>383301We can tell him to keep that shit under raps if he wants to rule, once he's king go nuts but not before.I mean damn we can even drop a letter to Stannis and warn him that shit aint gonna go his way, give him a preview so when it comes true, boom we're ready and waiting.The Rose's Thorns shall choke the Lion and any others whom dare to face us.
>>383304Good plan still have to save cool guys like tyrion and the hound,but probably not going to happen unless we succeed in several persuasion test
>>383283The Maester sits with you, day 17 after the injury, as usual at the end of the day providing you with a small amount of conversation and entertainment. He tells you a lot about his experiences as a maester, living through so many different rulers in his decades serving Highgarden. He speaks highly of Mace Tyrell and his children, saying they are "singularly the purest family in all of the world!" , but has a strange disdain for the Queen of Thorns, an attitude you've found in many who did not speak well of her. "Could you teach me a few small healing techniques? Like how to bind flesh? It would be so useful in my situation, I'll do my best to repay you for your help. But I need to improve while I'm here or I'll go crazy." The Maester studies you intently, his old eyes wrinkling as his eyebrows raise in a suspiciously jolly manner."Very well! I'll bring by a few supplies tomorrow and we'll get started, all of the Tyrell children are grown fully and do not take lessons with myself any more, being a tutor for a short period once again would elate me." He said, finishing with a goodnight before closing your door. ---The Maester was good on his promise, and the next day, he brought several pieces of what seemed to be partially- skinned fruits, with the peels delicately placed in a bowl next to them. A hooked needle with thread tied through it lay in a bowl of foul smelling liquid, presumably some form of ancient cleaning solution. The maester goes to work showing examples of tying the skins back on with the thread, "It's a grand practice for the art of stitching, you develop the delicate and intricate hand muscles needed for such expertise, practice this much when I am gone, just ask the serving girls for fruit.> You try a few times and the Maester watches.... Roll 1d100FIRST POST - Success at the stitchSECOND POST - Neatness of stitch
Rolled 33 (1d100)>>383308Medical Quest start :)
Rolled 97, 10 = 107 (2d100)>>383308We'll be the Obryn of the Tyrells
>>383308-Brian F., noble who thinks we're a sword master reborn-Maester who likes to teach us things because noone seems to demand his tutelage anymoreNice!
>Personal Goals-Poisons and Potions git gud.-Get good at Bow/daggers (works well with poisons)-Protect the Tyrell's play the game-????-Profit
>>383309>>383310>the stitch appears perfect at first glance, but you realise you've sown the fruit skin to your own hand.
>>383310So we did really, really well....it just looks like shit.
>>383316Opposite. OP said first and second post, not first and second roll.
>>383319....shit, well atleast it's neat...Got an old war wound now...yay
>>383309>>383310Your hands, not the most delicate things in the world as they were, could not seem to fully secure the missing piece of skin to the fruit like you had hoped. Starting along the left edge of the soft skin, the needle slid through effortlessly, and in rapid succession knocked out 15 near perfect stitches before a cramo tore through your hand and ruined the piece, this happens with varying differences each time.The Maester smiles "Not too bad, but you'll need to practice to get rid of those spasms. No worries, everyone gets them at first." You say your goodbyes and he leaves the room. You grab another piece and begin practicing for a few hours, improving minorly but your fingers just hurt too much after awhile. ...The large alchemical novel you purchased from the maester proved an interesting read, and you were quite engrossed in the intro when a quick knock sounded on the wall outside your personal area. "Yes, who is it?" You call out,"It's me, Elinor" you hear her reply, you invite her in and chat about the wound, she brings some food for you and you graciously wolf it down. She laughs at your gusto with a smile, you crack a smile as well and return back to fun conversation, random chats about the world and what they hope for their futures."Marriage is what terrifies me..." She whispers, "I don't want to be too graphic with you, but you are a friend, my mother thinks I'm soon ready to be arranged with some lord in some other place." She sighs a deep sigh and you put a hand on her shoulder comfortingly. She continues, "I know arranged marriages are just the way things go but it sounds so loveless." You agree with her.> Anything to say to her before she leaves?
That fruit has seen some action in the great veggie war
>>383322Tell her, sometimes things may start not looking great but in time many people grow to love one another, it just takes time and patience. You'll be ok, just stay in contact with your family so if you ever need help you can get it. Make a "growing strong" pun or something related to her family to lighten the mood.
>>383326Sorry also add how Lord Stark lives in one such marriage and they are rolling in kids and are very happy, so it can happen.
>>383322>Elinorwill be married after the battle of blackwater, which is a long time away. Just assure her that she can come to us for advice and "friendship" :).Anything about the would-be assassin? Did they find out anything or is that secret from the Guard?
>>383322If you think your husband is an arse just bite his member of and live your own life.
>>383341>>383328>>383339>>383326"Elinor," you start, summoning up your most inspiring friendly voice, "I have heard of many hundreds of Lords and Ladies who fall in love after these marriages, I have heard runors the ruler of the North was married to a Tully girl, and they are now decades in marriage with many children and a powerful bond." She smiles a little, but still looks doubtful, "But what if he's an ass?" She blurts out, immediately blushing for cursing in front of you, "I- I'm sorry I didn't mean to," you laugh and assure her it's fine. She grins."You're... Different Isaac. You treat me differently than any man I've known, like we're equals. It's strange. Why do you treat me so nicely?" > She looks to you for an answer
>>383349I can't go into much detail but lets say things like marriage and such are done slightly differently where i'm from. But that's a story for another time.
>>383349Elinor is still a noble, even if distantly related, right? Surely this isn't that strange, is it?
>>383349Just blush and say nothing, literally drop the subject and start talk about something else.Ask her about how her day went.Don't try to do anything funny or explain why you are yourself just be yourself.
>>383349>> She looks to you for an answer"My bounty is as boundless as the sea,My love as deep; the more I give to thee,The more I have, for both are infinite. "Some Romeo and Juliet, yes?
>>383349>kiss her, gently roll her hair behind her ear. >whisper: because our souls were meant to connect for a moment, just this moment Elinor, we were destined to come together here and now.
Y'all niggas crazyI like it
>>383364:Djust hope she or M. don't tell on us... commoner seduces noble lady etc.
>>383368playing with fire, true. but fun.>>383357yeah, nobles do get respect from people, especially from guards. But maybe our American style (even if acted) mentality gives us the impression of being a lowly noble (or noble-born bastard).
please, please no seducing the ladies this early. Don't wanna get fucked up this early.
>>383362>>383364>theses people give her the answer as soon as she ask.>having no taste for having tension build up in her, lettting her imagination go crazy.We should try to play dumb at least the first question then play the "it's becuse i'm Isaac and in the crazy act the gods wrote Isaac treat Elinor nicely because it feel infinitely good to treat Elinor nicely and when Elinor is around there's no cold that could freeze this fiery feeling inside of me."We can't really assume she love us, but she probably hate the other guy so we'll have to build a lot of tension so that we seem like the nicest guys on the planet who can confirm his love and she'll fall in love with us due to the fact that we're a forbidden fruit.
Given the fact we can read, write, are ok at sword play, would have a very healthy body as someone from our world as compared to them along with being bloody smart im surprised no one thinks we're a spy or some shit.We need to chat to the Queen of Thrones asap, if only so we can begin to play our hand and use what information we have.
>>383378Don't forget that we are nearly always bruised as fuck now that we've been playing with swords daily.
>>383364>>383362Please stop loras and Margery are still major options>>383355This
>>383378And nobody really knows we can read or write yet, and the only ones who see our unarmoured body are our comrades who probably don't give a fuck. Trained swordsmen tend to look very very fit as it is.
>>383378>We need to chat to the Queen of Thrones asap, if only so we can begin to play our hand and use what information we have.That's a bad idea we would have to reveal some of our hand which would empty it very quickly due to the fact that we would be changing cannon.Let's wait at least till Greyjoy fuck winterfell.
>>383388I suggest what we do is tell her how the results of the Joust will go and include the little mountain outburst and the hounds intervention. That is more than enough. Maybe even tell her exactly what her grandson will do...she won't tell him so she can see and she'll discover we are legit. We at that point have changed nothing what so ever.
>>383390>We at that point have changed nothing what so ever.you don't know that, would be fucking with important characters, butterfly effect could fuck us up.
>Operation C reaping Rose>ObjectivesSecure Tyrell leadership of the realm and internal stability ready to face the coming Hordes of Winter.>Stage 1: Lay the Bed-Earn the "Queen of Thorns" trust with >>383390-Enter kings landing and secure Sansa Stark and warn Ned of coming Betrayal-Say hello to the Spider let him know we are in this for the realm, give him a quick bit of info (that little Finger killed John Aryn)-Maybe chat with Dorne>Stage 2: The Thorns grow-Use what we know to win money/ place bets-Continue to make friends and sell information while it is valid-The war of King will occur one way or another, be ready and protect whomever we back for king.>Stage 3: The Rose-Seduce the people>>383395At this point we are safe, none of our interactions would effect anyone linking to anyone important.
>>383395>butterfly effectI fear that too!>>383373You make a good point. Maybe we really shouldn't put in on that thick... and just slow down in the love department.>>383378>surprised no one thinks we're a spy or some shitMaybe that Maester is spying on us... would a Maester really care for and talk extensively to a simple guard (even if personal guard to Lady so-and-so)?
>>383404Part of me hopes we just get dragged before the queen of thorns and she tells us to spill it.
>>383403>>383404I just got a plan, if we save renly but not having us do the job itself?What is we give Brienne Tarth an obsidian dagger and tell her to stab any demon or strange magical being she see and promise her that we are for renly since we're for the Tyrells.Maybe she can stab the shadow away and because a good friend of us?We'd have to do some research on what obsidian can kill though.
>>383403This backing this plan
>>383403Stage 1 might be too hard.Saving Ned is imcompatible with protecting the tyrell's interest, if Ned live he support Stannis the Mannis who want the throne like his Brother Renly who is married to Margaery Tyrell.If we're pro-tyrell we would have just played ourselves.
>>383409Don't worry that's the plan, we are going to appear as a simple guard to the Tyrells, but in reality we are pulling strings all over the place.
>>383355>>383359>>383362>>383364>>383368>>383371>>383372>>383373>>383378It takes every bit of your willpower to not rip off shakespeare or any other poet you know, she looks so cute as she blushes with the question. You smile back and, in the interest of stoking her interest in you for a later time, begin to explain that where you come from they just don't see why women should be considered lesser than men. Keep it a secret," you whisper in her ear, she blushes and agrees to not tell a soul, even if you refuse to tell her of your homeland. You two chat about small things until it's time for her to leave, she pecks you on the cheek like a noble lady would do to any friend and you smile. Innocence was a nice sight to see. ---Over the next few weeks little changed, you continued to practice sewing skins on to fruits, getting pretty good at it by the end of the 2nd month until your depature to the Stormlands. Both you and the Maester agree that you are ready to move on, and he quickly has you set to work on stitching together the skin on (cleaned and defeathered) retired messenger ravens. You probably have the skill to stitch minor wounds, but as the maester informs you, true trauma training can only be learned on the job. By this time, you are now walking without the crutch and have a mostly closed and scarred over wound in your leg. You've taken the Maester's advice to walk several miles a day, with much rest inbetween, to repair the function of the damage muscles, thankfully no tendons had been severed. This day in particular you are walking through your third or fourth mile, exploring the city with the soon to fade freedom of your medical leave. You hear rumors that Ned Stark has officially taken office as Hand of the King in King's Landing, and is rumoured among many of the peasents and lower-folk you often interact with to be using quite a heavy bit of power. The upcoming Hand's Tournament is said to be one of the largest held in the capital. ---Finally, after several visits from both the Maester and your Tyrell friend Elinor, it seems that the las month of recovery has come to an end, and you are just now settling back in the Barracks. ---Routinue rears its ugly head again and you're back on schedule within the week - training now took up most of your time. After your near crippling, every precaution was worth becoming stronger and more reflexive. Days took up guarding the royal quarters, Nights were spent with hours at the sword and your book of alchemical reactions. The convoy to leave Highgarden to The Stormlands with Margery Tyrell will leave in one week. In response to this long journey, you are given a two day period of respite to get your affairs in order before leaving the city. > For these last two days of freedom in Highgarden, where do you go?
>>383420Whoops wrong trip haha
>>383420We must search in the citadel and ask our friendly Maester to acquire an obsidian dagger for us, of course we'll pay and thank him greatly.Also let's prepare to bet on who shall win the tournament.>>383425>tfw when like 50% of the people on this thread are /pol/acksEven i didn't lnow the infiltration went this far :^)
>>383420>>383425Begin this plan >>383403 ask if we might have a word with the queen of thorns, mention whats suggested I'm my plan and that if they come to pass, seek us out we will have much to discuss. Say how we don't expect her to trust us straight away say that our proof will be when what we say comes to pass.Otherwise we just place bets at multiple places on the results of the coming Tournament, gotta make some money.
>>383437>>383434the /pol/ scheming is strong.
>>383420Speak with the queen of thorns tell her what will happen at the tournament including the mountains outburst and the hound jumping in to save the day
>>383442remember to include her not telling her son otherwise she will set things in motion that can't be stopped.way later on in the quest if she asks who we are we should literally tell her we are from a post apocalyptic future, we are here to save the Tyrells and the world.
>>383434Getting an obsidian dagger to save renly is a good idea
>>383448Probably wouldn't belive that and would have us interrogated and killed
>>383420> For these last two days of freedom in Highgarden, where do you go?Maybe meet Elinor again? What do we know about Westerosi alchemy now (book knowledge)?>pecks you on the cheek like a noble lady would doNice development.>thankfully no tendons had been severedLucky! That prob. would have cost us our job, no?>Hand's TournamentBetting and making money? :)>>383409Makes total sense to me! Hm :), the Shadow Master in the Background.>>383418>appear as a simple guardDoesn't the Spider often hide as a common citizen?>>383452yeah, sounds super dangerous game... queen of thorns is probably not friendly when a random guard wants to tell her stuff and secretive
>>383461That he does, we can be the Hornet of Highgarden rather than the Spider of King's Landing
>>383448when ask who we are tell her that were a man who knows secrets then tell her every thing we know and that once she acts we have no more knowledge on events that happen
>>383479But what we do know is facts....we know whoes children are really whos...we know winter is coming, we know exactly daeneri's timeline because westeros don't interact. We also know motives...like everyones, but best of all...we know players who have yet to take the stage.
>>383467>>383461>>383452>>383449>>383448>>383442Political scheming is fun to think about, the sense of life and death that surrounds your actions seem far more real after your stabbing - The Queen of Thorns comes to mind more often than not, she could be a good ally, but then again the shrewd old woman would have barely any respect for a commoner who claims to know the future. Safer to play your cards closer to your chest until you are in a stronger position.You decide to drop in on Elinor one more time before you leave, wanting one last night of shennanigans with the sweet girl. You find her idly drawing using a piece of hardened charcoal on parchment, you approach behind her to take a look, and you see a portrait of you, or atleast a figure that looks like you, in great detail. Someone who didn't know your face well would be unable to recognize the portrait in its unfinished state.The girl is humming softly, a light blush on her cheeks... Some darker thoughts cross your mind, seducing the girl would be quite easy, unlike back in your old life, and having a noble lover (with some knowledge of contraception) does have its advantages if you keep it secret. It is pretty well known that with pretty girls in this universe, only the most ataunchly honorable men would care if they found out she was no virgin, but you shake your head, the girl was very innocent, and to do that would change her life forever. You watch for a few seconds as she continues to doodle.> What do you say to the young woman?
>>383491"What if i we're to go away sometime Elinor?"she reply likely saying that she'd get sad"I mean i am healthy and must attend to my duties now."she likely reply by saying you don't have to be apart"I shall leave in two days Elinor"she either accept fate or we drag her along secretly.>>383461>Betting and making money? :)so in order:>jory cassel win two times>lothor brune win against jory cassel>Meryn trant win>Balon Swann win>jaime win two times>Barristan Selmy win two times>jaime win against barristan>Gregor clagane rekt 3 fools>Sandor win against Renly>Benric Dondarrion win>then he lose against Thoros of Myr> Aron Santagar have a draw against Lothor Brune>Jason Mallister defeats Ser Aron Santagar>Robar Royce defeats Lothor Brune>Loras Tyrell rekt 4 fools>Loras Tyrell defeat Gregor in the book by using a mare in heat that distract Gregor's Clegane stallion>Sandor Clegane rekt jaime>Sandor Clegane is named winner because he saved Loras Tyrell's life by fighting his brother.
>>383498When we bet make sure we use numerous bookies and several names...don't want anyone on our scent just yet.>>383491Simply say "Thats very good", have a friendly chat and chill. Being a drama student I bet our art is up to scratch maybe have a little go ourselves.
>>383491>> What do you say to the young woman?"Look at me more. That way you can improve the portrait even more!" :) Light teasing should keep things interesting without being without class>noble loverAnd she's friends with Lady Maegery, but maybe too early to take her.>>383504>numerous bookiesrichest guard in the Seven Kingdoms.
>>383498>Betting orderVery nice list! Odds against Sandor Clegane being the tourney winner should be huuuge.
>>383498Nah dude lets go with being gay and seducing loris
>>383506>richest guard in the Seven Kingdoms.I doubt that by the 5th or 6th bet we make that the same bookie will want to bet again but assuming it's a double or nothing bet we could multiply our income by some insane 2^n and i calculated that winning every bet against a bookie would be willing to play would multiply our winnings by 134217728.So we just need to bet a single coin if we can bet on the outcome of every match.
>>383491"Well now. Isn't that quite the good looking fellow?" In a mildly teasing voice.
>>383511>>383511Why not both? He said we got turned on seeing a dude naked earlier and woman. Pretty sure MC is a little bit of a both fields kinda guy
>>383513recalculated again actually it's:2^(2+1+1+1+2+2+1+3+1+1+1+1+1+1+4+1+1+1)so 67108864.So for evey coin that we bet from the start to the end.We win 67108864 coins.
>>383516>>383511Don't want to read about guy's ass and abs though... prefer the descriptions of Maegery and Elinor.
>>383516Wait lets be both Margery AND loris concubine. But then we would have to deal with the faith
>>383518If we win too much: Won't the Highgarden underworld hunt us down? I guess, bookies are underworld business things, right?
>>383519Don't worry Velo won't write gay fantasies, he's from /pol/ i'm pretty sure he'd end the quest before writing about Renly's royal ass.
>>383525Eh, I'd probably not write it as detailed, but I'm not afraid of it
>>383491>drinking games truth or dare>source information from herleads to a>strengthened bond between you>mayb we can get a little action and she won't remember or care?
>>383516No This is a /pol/ threadgo back to /lgbt/
Don't forget we are going to be placing these bets under different names and multiple places. If anything I think this could be lulzy because the only people in westeros whom may hear of a strange guard who showed up out of nowhere and suddenly makes bank would be Little Finger and Varys
>>383529I say we go full Oberyn myself...since you know we're a drama student
>>383528>drinking gamesShe's Maegery's handmaiden so she prob. doesn't have that much "free" time. And making her drunk seems... strange compared to behaviour till now.
>>383528>mayb we can get a little action and she won't remember or care?you never drank alcohol did you, by the time she start losing the ability to remenber she's almost bee too drunk to even sit down with falling off a chair.That's pretty unknightly to take advantage of such a pure lady.>>383537>I say we go full Oberyn myself...since you know we're a drama studentbeing a degenrate isn't good in the GoT universe, like Varys said not having to crave for carnal pleasure let more time to pursue other ambitions.
>>383491Why dont we go up behind her and place our hands infront of her eyes and say guess who?Then talk about that fact that we leaving for the tournament and recent events about ned and that fact that we want her pussyYou can leave out this bit if its not good
>>383534> If anything I think this could be lulzy because the only people in westeros whom may hear of a strange guard who showed up out of nowhere and suddenly makes bank would be Little Finger and Varysthis could be interesting.Actracting varys attention is smart since we know his hidden true intentions in the book.getting Rhaegar's son on the Throne, we could surprise him by saying we know a lot due to magic and then ask him to save Ned and give Brienne an obsidian dagger to save Renly.But little finger would be a lot of trouble.
>>383541>unknightlyI prefer being the moral (American style) character too!>leaving for the tournamentYou mean leaving for Storm's End? And leaving same as she is?
>>383550desu we should kill Varys and LF as soon as we get the chance
>>383550When he asks "did you stare into the flames" we should say something like "how primitive". When we walk away from him and he does that thing where he is facing away from us and asks "what is it you really want", we should pause in the doorway the sun illuminating our silhouette and just chuckle heartily.
>>383562>we just straight up shoot little finger from a distance with a poisoned arrow. The Hornet of High Garden strikes.
>>383527Can we continueSince the rest are just planning Use the only two actions >>383544>>383506
>>383562Little finger maybe but Varys could be a good guy, he just want Rheagar son to be on the throne and he doesn't know there actually two of them.He could actually become Ned and Jon snow's best allies.I mean he's loyal to the Targaryen and wants a good king and who better than Jon snow fit the profile?Meanwhile danny comes to Essos only to be greated by an unmarried Targaryen and traditions happen and we get our song of ice and fire by marrying danny and jon snow.Then they both kill white walkers with Dragons wildfire and valyrian steel and everyone is happy.Varys can set things right if we just persuade him and tell him the truth.
>>383544>>383550>>383553>>383562>>383566With a silent laugh you reach around and cover her eyes gently with a hand, whispering "Guess who it is!" She laughs and says "Aegon the Conqueror!" you both laugh and you drop your hand, for a second Wlinor does nothing but then blushes and tries to cover the picture."No no, it's alright! I like it!" You grin at her blushing figure, "plus now you can look at me in more detail, ahould I shed more clothing for the muscles?" You pretend to flex and she blushes even redder but keeps laughing. She tells you to sit next to her, and she turns, focusing on your face with the charcoal in hand.> As you model, what do you say?
>>383582just wink and ask to make sure we look a little better looking
>>383582Draw me like one of your westerosi girls
>>383582Things in politics are about to become more complicated. Who are you marrying it would be good to know what your getting into.
Guys let us not be hasty. First of all, don't fuck Elinor, she's just a minor noble, let's just stay friendly.Secondly, if our final goal is securing Westeros from the Walkers, we should aim towards helping Dany, by acquiring power in the realm, maybe becoming the secret ruler hidden behind the king of our choosing, so that when she eventually gets to Westeros she will find the kingdom in a way better situation than in the books, and try to make her get the throne withouth too much bloodshed. This is because the dragons will be extremely important in the war against the winter, and there is little we can do right now to stop/kill Dany anyway. Then again, depends on what your plans are, maybe we can just get enough power and money to form our own kingdom in the southern continent giving a shot about the rest.
>>383577Varys is working for the Blackfyres, not the Targaryans, if we told him that we'd probably get a crossbow bolt to the chest
>>383591>don't fuck ElinorWe aintWe just friends
Why do a love the image of some roaring fireplace with an armchair facing away from it, Issac sat there in our glistening armour, reflecting the flames casting flickers of glare across the room.Someone opens the door and all they can see is our shape and the glistening armour looking like there's no one even in it because of the fire glare.
>>383582> As you model, what do you say?Ask her to teach you to draw as you like what you saw!>>383562Most interesting characters who keep the story going forward: Don't kill them!>>383577>Jon snowHe's a child and can't even keep his Night's Watch in line. Maegery should be Queen!>>383591>don't fuck ElinorYeah, she seems the only one to actually care for us.
>>383592I think we just say we're in this for the realm...though we should tease him about how if we were the suspicious type we'd think he was a Merkin
>>383602>tease Varys...no?Some characters seem friendly in the novels or tv show but mostly only when depicted speaking with friends and family - we're neither, so I'm all for keeping low for now.
>>383582btw is our modern way to draw things (perpective, proportions, etc) way different to Westerosi doodling/art? Can we fascinate that way? ("That young guard can dance and draw! We should have him around more!")
>>383592>He's working with BlackfyresAegon Targaryen is not a blackfyre even if he's only half Targaryen he's still son to Rhaegar so technically Jon snow is young griff's older half brother.I'm sure Varys will reconsider everything once he realise that while he was busy smuggling a Targaryen to Essos someone else smuggled one to Winterfell.He literally told to a dying man that Aegon is the son of Rhaegar so Varys will never kill us if we tell him we know very much and are willing to help him defend the realm and put a worthy king on the Throne.His only wish is to have the son of Rhaegar on the Throne, telling him there's two of those and he can choose which one goes on the throne will never have him kill us.
>>383582Give her the heads up about our trip we are to be leaving on.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Hi8IWqic0UImplying we won't do this to Westeros
>>383607Yeah, we should keep low but influence everything we can. We know EVEYRTHING which means that we know exactly what every charachter wil do, what they like and where they will be. We should use our knowledge to better our position in society( maybe saving Renly when we have the chance). Changing something major would probably fuck up the story line and we would lose our knowledge. I think it's best that we stay low, make connections,make money and prepare for the Other invasion/ Dany's return and then start changing shit(since thats the point where the show/books are currently at)
>>383613We dont know for sure if Aegon is trully a Targaryen. He might be a Blackfyre for all we know, there exist a popular fan theory about him beign a Blackfyre.
>>383615She's M. handmaiden and will come too, right?>>383622Yes! Support that! The White Walkers stand no chance! :)Besides betting: Can we buy up ship building material for when the Lannisters want to rebuild the Royal Fleet? And maybe gather foodstuff for when the Wars start?
>>383622While us altaring events may change some choices people make, their motivations and goals will remain the same fortunately. Also hard facts remain the same. The Lanister incest for example. Facts of the past are still the same and give us information.
>>383637Of course she can, we just need coin. A shitload of it. When we get the money from betting on tournaments we can also start investing it in a way we are sure gets our money back. With interests.
The two of you laugh some more while she finishes up her drawing of you. Nothing of true import passes between you until she says, "You know, Lady Margery makes it a point not to favor her soldiers, hence why she often does not interact with your group. She's thankful you stopped the man, apparently some mad commoner, you're doing quite well for yourself." She giggles again and stands up, taking the finished portrait with her, teasing you and saying you won't get to see it until everyone arrives at Renly Baratheon's home. She walks away, posture perfect like a Lady. You watch as she rounds the corner out of the hedge maze, and goes back in to the palace to reune her duties as handmaiden. You treck back to the Palace and roam around the training room a bit, bashing the straw filled dummies with a energetic rhythm. You hadn't had as much time lately to praftice archery, but you grab a bow and loose several quivers of blunt arrows in to the target, quite average at best.Eventually you clean up in the baths, running in to Boar, Garrett, and a few others. The usual games were played and you went off to bed. ----The next day was chaotic as final preparations were made for the departure, throughout the day you were pulled from your day of leave as more men were needed to ready everything. Large chests were being loaded in to a carriage, along with much simpler, straw filled wooden boxes that lined three carts full of them. The royals were ushered in to their carriage as the sun reached high noon, and the journey began. The roads outside of Highgarden fascinated you, the farms and orchards seemed to go on for untild miles in every direction, lush fields of green and yellow and red passed by as you rode on your transport horse.

The road is thankfully calm as you travel down the reach. Beautiful fields, orchards, and farms dotted the landscape as you rode by. You daydreamed, leaning back on your horse slightly to look at the sky. You felt right. This was the world you were meant to be in. You could imagine, 10 years from now, holding some keep, with marvelous riches from your knowledge, a beautiful wife who raises your many kids who go on to learn your knowledge as well. You sigh, wondering when you'll ever get to experience trying to make them, you wonder what the other ckmrades would think of you being mostly a virgin? Horrible. You shudder and keep riding.As night descends, the Captains agree to keep moving for a few hours past dusk, despite a nervous report from the scouts in agreement.You watch the road as a shadow crosses, and then another. "HALT!" Yells the officer next to you, and more shadows flee down the road. Your captain orders your regiment to ride forward and apprehend the people fleeing.Pressing your heels in to the horse, you charge forwards to find men aiming bows at the charging horses.ROLL 1d100First - DodgeSecond - AttackThird - Special

>>383727>>383726Its not himITS THE DICE GODS AND US
>>383737I interpret the dice as accurate representation to what our skill should be. Our background shouldn't make us some good soilder after all. The dice are just confirming it.
>>383737Then perhaps the dice system we are using is in need of a rework like giving us modifiers
>>383745Well hopefully once we get to our destination we can get to the string pulling and money making
>>383743we have literally been training for months and beat a noble.. Nobles normally have advanced swordsmanship skills because they are trained from a young ageI mean really
>>383731at least we can ride horses now, learned something useful. Sad, we lost our horse now... spare one available?>pocket a bag of goldQuick thinking :), our betting money.Looking forward to the quest! Thanks for doing it!
>>383748A shitty swordsman noble*
>>383748Yeah, we also convinced the Guard Captain to hire us early on, pretty sure we shouldn't have won but we did... maybe our college actor did some fencing (similar) somewhere before? (possible explanation)
>>383753a Noble none the less and still he was trained
>>383753Also stop trying to shill our character to be a wimp
I'm still holding out for us to become High Gardens equivalent of Oberyn, potions/poisons, DEX weapon (Bow or daggers), charismatic as fuck. We use what we know to make bank, make contacts and generally be a boss.
>>383754>>383757True, true. Well, we'll see how he does in real field combat one on one soon enough I'm sure
>>383765Get head caved in
>>383763Personally, I'm getting tired of when anons in quests keep making the character, no matter their background chosen, into a "gains" getter.
>>383765If we have to die I hope it's us surounded by Others and Waights, flaming sword in one hand, dragon glass dagger in the others atop a smoldering pile of the undead until the Night King himself comes down to fight us.That or drop kicking the Night's King off the wall and falling down with him stabbing him as we fall to our snowy grave.
>>383591Dany will bring more harm than good. It's best if she dies. Bitch is crazy
>>383775It sure could be entertaining, if we're just the strangely charismatic guard being friendly with the Tyrells and not some player in the game.
>>383775every quest we either a mage or a fucking rogue and weak as fuckI'd like to see a strong character with some intelligence and charisma
>>383768We won't brag, confirm kill, double tap...triple tap
>>383804He's right you know fantasy quest protagonist usually end up as some mage or a assassin rarely will the MC be a pure martial
>>383792I mean, 3 dragons are pretty nice and all, but as far as their military potential goes, they are just 3 armored flying flamethrowers. I'd rather have the guys that make wildfire to be on our side if we were to fight the white walkers.
>>383748His skill was garbage though.
>>383816>3 armored flying flamethrowersThey can just fucking napalm the entire stretch before the wall and then they all dead
>>383816Dragons are OP m8. Even if they aren't full grown they take a huuuuuge toll on the enemy moral. Medieval battles usually had only 5-10% casualties and most of the soilders would be killed in the rout.
>>383818Thats again according to the diceImagine if we had rolled shit
>>383816>wildfireWe can maybe find the secret hiding places in King's Landing (under the big Sept) later on.
I say we develop fucking Scorpio Ballistas. Poison them and fucking shred that air. Or something like this vid. They bleed so they can die.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_AySuafZ8to
>>383829Yea, but the undead generally speaking don't have to deal with morale, which would be what we'd need them for. As far as breaking enemy's morale during sieges, we can just start pulling out the siege works of great philosophers such as Archimedes into the play and watch them crumble. There are many other ways to scare an enemy than just dragons if that is your goal. Ways that do not involve dealing with a volatile bitch that might banish you the next day if she decides that she does not like your advice.
>>383843I mean i dont like Dany at allSTANNIS THE MANNISBut the dragons are just OP, dragonglass is the only way to kill the Others and considering that dragons can destroy all their wights in moments(wights are weak to fire). The endgame is defeating the Others and saving Westeros. It would be the best to do it without the dragon bitch but i dont think its possible.
>>383842I think they exist as it is, problem with them is hitting a moving target in air. The main problem in killing a dragon is forcing it to ground level.Best way to deal with it I believe is to pump out shrapnel to tear it's wings to shreds and force it to ground and then finish it off with heavy hitters. Once we can produce blackpowder, we can also start making rocket weaponry as well, which should be far more terrifying than a dragon.
>>383854The Dornish killed a dragon by piercing its eye with a big(for you) spear. Though that happend only once.
>>383842Now try shoot a dragon with that A fasting move target while you can barely readjust your aim without taking a large amount of time ...You'd need hundreds of them
>>383853Just build some greek firethrowers on each keep.
>>383863To be fair, that's not really an issue. We can just set up a production line and mass produce them with unskilled workers. Just teach each worker to produce 1 part and have them make that part all day every day and then send them to assembly line where each dude just puts part A to slot A all day every day. Standardisation, production lines and assembly lines after all are unknown concepts in this world.
>>383880>assembly linethose workers will turn around and accuse us of slavery, we get thrown somewhere dark and never let out again> just set up a production lineWould a college kid do that to other human beings though? Buying stuff from Bangladesh or China is one thing, but actually organising this kind of production...
>>383900>implying an assembly line automatically means slavery and sweatshopsWtf
>>383909>>383900We can just establish a primitive manufacture, early renaissance level. Specialist and fairly paid workers assembling high quality product at decent speed.
By the way, we should ask for a loan from Elinor to increase our betting funds. Nothing too drastic, something we can pay back after a month or so of work. Just tell her that since it's a special occasion, you want to do some betting.We should also borrow some money from the captain and tell him that if you win, you'll throw up a big party with lots of ale, wenches and food. (Just make sure we don't splurge all our winnings on them.)This will make it a personal matter for both Elinor, a member of a noble house and a whole bunch of people with really sharp pointy sticks with a license to fuck up lawbreakers.This way, they'll have to pay us even if they don't want to.
>>383900You do realize that in medieval times most jobs pay almost nothing at all to begin with and are a lot more hazardous to health than the manufactory work I'm proposing? True, it's manual labour, but so is everything else in these days. The only difference is that the job we offer is easy and will allow you to feed your kids.
>>383933>loan from Elinorway to kill any special mood?
>>383973ok, convinced me. Might not be so bad. Still: Will the guilds just let us do stuff?And I still like the idea of the charming guard for the Tyrells running around with more money than sense - like a normal college student.
>>382915that's not how sword fighting works.I doubt anyone here knows how to refine ore into iron and forge it into a tool or weapon. People in the middle ages were just as smart and skilled as modern people, they simply had less of a knowledge base. Likewise, a modern guy with a month of training is unlikely to be able to beat a man that's been given the best training in swordplay for his entire life
>>383984There are ways around that. For one, if we manage to get noble patrons, that'll get us some protection. Having the guard on our side is good as well. Also, it's not like we can run the entire operation without the masters of the craft themselves. There'll be plenty of openings for managerial staff, R&D and quality control for them. We can also bribe them a bit if that's not enough.
>>384001I'm going to guess the guy we beat was just relying on his noble physique, which means that due to not being malnutritioned during childhood, he's much better developed. Could also be that sword is not his primary weapon.
>>384001I'm going to guess that we were halfway decent with a sword in our first encounter because we had training in how to stage fight. Maybe we did a performance of hamlet and the director really went overboard assuring that the fight scenes played out realistically.
>>384060M8 if I'm watching a play I will want realistically sword fighting. That's what really sells if for me.
>>383978Well, it's not like we "need" the loan, just ask it casually. It's not unusual to borrow money for revelries and it's not like we'd be betting anything we can't afford to lose. Worst case is, we'll lose the next month's salary.
>>384001>People in the middle ages were just as smart and skilled as modern peopleVery true!>modern guy with a month of training is unlikely to be able to beat a man that's been given the best training in swordplay for his entire lifeMaybe he was dead drunk, had a broken wrist and had sand in his eyes.
>>384093Could be he plays by the rule of cool.
Can we just go littlefingers here?
>>384142backstabber/ sociapath? Can't we just play the starry-eyed student who's still fascinated by this new world he read so much about?
>>384151Well, the there's always the impending doom we need to consider.
>>384189And all of the literal fantasy hotties he now has with damp panties
When is Op coming back?
>>384495Yeah Iron Legion :^)He just went to school 5 hours ago so he should come back
>>383731You wipe the sweat from your brow as you help your comrades move the dead horses from the path, and head back to a show of cheers from the others. Lady Margery and her grabdmother are informed of the events, and the convoy continues onward, singing songs of the reach in an oddly harmonious roar. In sadness you realize you have to walk for the rest of the journey, as your horse was never an absolute need for the journey, just a nicety provided by the royals. The pounded dirt and cobble road stretched on for many miles into the horizon, now filled with a grand moon. Everyone remains on high alert as camp is made, and you help hammer the stakes of you and your two temporary bunk-mates' tent and start chatting with the two men.Geof Cantlewagon, a son of a minor noble presiding over a fishing village near Oldtown, as you come to find out, who was enlisted in the royal entourage as a reward for turning in the bounty of a rather infamous killer. He regales you and you fellow bunkee with tales of his days where he eloped with a sell sword company in Tyrosh before returning back to Westeros with a decent amount of wealth to live on saved or as he put it, "With a bag o' coin and 30 whores left pregnant behind 'im". He was a burly and daft man as you quickly came to realize, with the over exaggerations of his sexual and physical conquests and constant reference to "'is 'uge peckah". The other bunkmmate was a squire named "Onder", a Dornish boy it seemed who was raised in The Reach. He was timid at best, but did pack a suprising amount of muscle for a lad at 16 at the greatest, clearly he had been at his training for awhile. In the few hours of drinking shitty ale from a warm waterskin, in front of a make shift fire with your two compatriots, you're suitably drunk, laughing raccously and trading stupid tales. You tell a lot of jokes from the modern world which elicites huge laughter from the two, watching them get the punchline of "why did the chicken cross the road" and the realization of its meaning was cathartic, and really showed you how out of place you were with such... Simpler people of this time. > The camp will be set until Dawn. You have the freedom to do as you wish at the camp, but are still expected to show decorum in front of the (presumably also piss drunk) captains. Where do you go, or do you simply sleep it off?
>>384827Try to talk with Elinor, at this hour she might get some time to talk.
>>384827Let's go to sleep.
Maybe wander out to find a bit of food if there happens to be some getting cooked. If no food, then bullshit with the boys, leave for a piss, and go back for bed.
>>384827>Try to talk with Elinor, at this hour she might get some time to talk.Do this but if Elinor can't talk then we should drink lots of water to limit the effects of a hangover if we're drunk. Then go to sleep
talk to Elinor if we can, get food, take a piss (drunkenly), return to tent for sleep
>>384827Train with fellow soldiers
>>384827>Where do you go, or do you simply sleep it off?Elinor or sing!>>384865yes, singing should make us friends ...and famous!>>384866too dark, too late?
>>384871If we sing, we have to remember not to sing the rains of castamere.
>>384887>rains of castameretrue, that would be awkward. Sing some theater song, should be save... Shakespear's always good.
Sing some old (for us) music like something from The Eagles, Kansas, or Boston maybe. Queen, maybe, like Bohemian Rhapsody?
>>384909Lol All I can see now is Isaac screaming " MAMA MIA MAMA MIA" and everyone thinking some essosi spy broke in
>>384945Oh, God, you're right! That's a bit /too/ off for the setting. Funny as hell though. Killer Queen appropriate? ;)
No. Wait.Beastie Boys, cause i'm still that lame.
>>384958We don't want to sound like we're criticising Margarine or undermining her ' people's queen ' image.
>>384958If you do not mind being hung for treason
if we're going to sing queen, doing something fun like fat bottomed girls might be good plus we don't have to change two many lyrics.
>>384981>>384980Oh, i know, horridly tasteless ^_^I'm good like that at the best of timesFat Bottom Girls has my vote, it's a good one in my book. I'll try to stop shitting up this nice thread now.
In your deunken state, you feel far more nostalgic of home than you have in awhile, the shocks and wounds and struggle distracting you from the thought of the past. In a bittersweet mood, you walk around the camp lightly singing some of your favorites from real life, doing well to make sure nobody overhears too much. Drunk, but only to the point of acting a little funny, you find yourself outside the tents of the Ladies in Waiting. Inside one of them, noises of a girl rustling around her things was heard, followed by an object falling and Elinor's voice clearly saying "damn it all".You could always enter, it seems like a good idea at the time... Or maybe its the buzz? Regardless, you want to see her.> How do you enter the tent or get permission?
>>385022best to ask for permission
>>385046>>385041Let me correct myself, how do you ask permission, or how do you enter?
Yeah, ask. Best to be safe.
>>385050Ask for permission. say lady may I enter the tent
>>385022Say that we're checking with Elinor as to whether she has enough supplies in her tent or if she wants to be supplied or resupplied with anything.
>>385050ask her is she okay and can we come inside
>>384981To be perfectly fair, Killer Queen would be complete nonsense as it references a lot of places, people and objects that these people have never heard of.
>>385022Actually, let's ask permission to enter first and then use excuses if we need to get past a stubborn handmaid.
>>385056To be crass, we all know she wants supplied with the Big D. But we need to be polite, as always."Just wondering if you needed an extra set of hands in there" something along those lines, anyway.
>>385022>> How do you enter the tent or get permission?"Lady Elinor, may I enter?" someone else could be there to listen, better safe than sorry and we just talked with her about equality etc.
>>385069Polite Quest :)
"Elinor!" You whisper loudly outside the door, "It's me, Isaac, can you let me in? I wanted to talk to you." You hear a scared gasp, followed by a relax sigh as you saw the flap being fiddled with, and as she undid the knot, you were faced with Elinor in her night gown. You climb in clumsily like a drunk, and she giggles, "Had a little drink or two?" You grin, explaining that the boys had ale and you were hardly the kind of guy to deny his comrades a good time. She laughs again at your brazen drunkenness and leans in whispering "I have a secret," your ears perk up, lI drank a lot of wine tonight to help me sleep, the tent floors are so uncomfortable." And unmistakably the scent of sweet wine wafted from her mouth, with the half, empty skill haphazardly slightly spilled and shoddily cleaned up in the corner."This innocent lady, drunk?" You groan sarcastically, "what next, white walkers?" You kick yourself inwardly, that stupid saying you picked up from a friend slipping out in the fogginess. Elinor, however, had a grand time with that joke and was nearly crying at "how a- accu- hahaahaha -rate it- it- haha is."The moon is rising slowly from the horizon now, nearing 11 p.m., the wineskin is still with some volume if you were to take a swig. > How do you proceed?

Spend a bit more time with the nice girl and be off to bed. Sleep away a possible hangover if we can, at least most of one.
(Also, I wanted to ask, is there a way to archive /qst/ threads yet? This is the first thread of a (planned to be) very long series of quests. Like to save it for posterity reasons if nothing else sense I am now dedicating a couple hours a day or more to running it or other quests for the forseeable future )
>>385087i don't know just don't sleep with her when she tries to push herself on us
>>385100Also be sure to drink lots of water since that the cause of hangover
>>385105Automatic archive: archived.moe/qst/Manual archive (someone has to go to the website and fill in a short archival form which makes it archive the thread until the thread bumps off the board.): suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html
>>385105You can on suptg
I think if we were going to sing modern songs and teach 'em to the soldiers I'd say Creedence Clearwater Revival would be more fitting with some lyric changes.
>>385134Is that a common song that we can rely upon our character knowing, though?
>>385134We can teach them modern marching songs sing in our world, Their lots of old marching songs
I'll be happy if we can sneak in some southern rock and some CCR now and then. Sounds good to me.
>>385145Creedence Clearwater Revival is a bandhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIjUY3pjN8E>>385146Maybe Hard work?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qu5q_awytxU
>>385153Good song, we can use the song "Over There" just change the words to fit the Got Theme. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6hRDS3LvQQ
>>385087>> How do you proceed?A friendly kiss, some more talking, nothing' more. Ask her about the portrait she wanted to show us.
>>385251Let us not excessively tempt fate.
>>385251We are after all commoners and to give a friendly kiss to a noble such as her is highly improper.
>>385251>A friendly kissHow do you friendly kiss someone?Also, don't think we should kiss her at all.
>>385251Yeah, probably a sorta bad idea. Probably safer not to.
>>385380It's a thing in certain cultures, but even in those cutures you would not do it to someone of higher social standing.There is a thing called etiquette after all.
so while our QM is passed out do we plan on ever slipping Elinor our sausage, or will we be just close friends?
>>385405I would say close friends, she is due to be married soonish, i believe. Gotta maintain dat etiquette.
>>385405Having a tumble on the side when her husband is off to fight a war is one thing, deflowering another's virgin bride is different entirely. Don't try to slip her the D. It's better for everyone that way. It would not end only as a casual fling anyhow.
Hey, I just skimmed the thread and wanted to throw in my vote for talking/getting word to Varys as soon as we are certain that we can do it safely. He is the one who can use our knowledge most effectively and who might actually take us seriously.
>>385405Personally, I've come to enjoy her company quite a bit. So who knows where it goes?
>>385527Varys is also a loyalist and I'd rather not give the crazy bitch any guns.
>>385552Which crazy bitch are we talking about here?
>>385589Dany. She is crazy and impulsive. If she does not like your advice, she will throw you away regardless of how useful you have been to her.
>>385621But we have useful advice for her, not to mention that we will probably want her story to play out naturally until she gets the Unsullied army and then try to turn her towards the Seven Kingdoms from there, we probably wont meet her for years to come and by then she's mellowed out a lot.Varys is the best combination of powerful, secretive, and inquisitive while also being the least likely to throw us away once done with us.
>>385632>But we have useful advice for her True, from which we stand to gain absolutely nothing. >not to mention that we will probably want her story to play out naturally until she gets the Unsullied army and then try to turn her towards the Seven Kingdoms from there, we probably wont meet her for years to come and by then she's mellowed out a lot.What are you basing any of this on? The show is not canon, we are going by the books. Best case scenario is if we manage to have her assassinated as soon as possible and then pick up the dragon eggs for ourselves and have them imprint on us instead.If that fails, assasinate anyone worth a damn surrounding her. She is so woefully incompetent that she will not get anything done herself.
Conversation took many turns for the next hour, what it was like being a guard, what a handmaiden actually does (turns out its to dress, bathe, and put the cosmetics on their mistress until the maid gets married.) , and the life you planned on living. She had found confidence in your last conversations clearly, as she seemed to have a brighter look on her inevitable arranged marriage. The night soon wound down and you excused yourself for the night, heading back to camp to drink large amounts of water from your water skin, pissing in the trees, and passing out in the cramped tent.--- Trumpets announced the dawn and both you and your two roommates got untangled from the awkward, gangly mess of the night, quickly complete the two S's of the morning (Shaving and Shitting as your friends call it), and broke down camp in the span of 30 minutes. The road again was harsh, but you were growing used to the soreness in your feet and calves, often jogging lightly to keep your mind off of the road. Thankfully, the summer heat was dulled by a number of dark clouds, not thunder heads by any means, but large enough that they provided shade. ---An eventless day of trecking finally breaks into camp, and a similar routine emerges, you get drunk on ale from the quickly dwindling supply of your tent-mates, joined Elinor for a late night chat, drank water, and collapsed. And so life was for four long, leg breaking days of walking, a sunburn had developed on the back of your neck, tender to the touch and an annoyance in a leather jerkin, as the taught material grated against the irritated skin. Furthermore, any unfamiliarity with camp life was quickly resolved, in all honesty, it was fun. For all intents and purposes the Reach was fully in peace, and the soldiers celebrated as such. The usual somber and hated mood of army camps in war you had lived with the conception of seemed alien to this, so much revelry happened on the road, even the Royals were rumoured to drink in their carriages the entire trip, explaining the odd stops when one of Mace Tyrells sons puked off the side of his horse. You were growing to love these people in an odd way. (Cont)
---Finally after a week's worth of walking, camping, and complaining, the towers of Storm's End, current castle of Renly Baratheon, Lord Paramount of the Stormlands. The massive structure glinted in the sunlight off of massive worn stones that seemed to meld with the very land that it hung on. Parapets with soldiers on patrol lined every wall in sight, gatehouses regularly being lowered and raised to accommodate new visitors. As your banners start to come in to view to the castle, theirs become clear to you: hundreds of Baratheon Stag banners waved in the light, arranged in a crescent pattern, while an attractive young man stood in similarly stylized armor of antlers and stags. The royal procession soon came close, and the Tyrells began exiting the boxy things. Margery as always elicited such a feeling of want in you, and today was no different as she smiles to Renly, closing the gap between them with an almost awkward hug. ---Entering the city, Renly's host leads you to a barracks that housed the castle's retinue, a big hall-like structure lined with beds and hammocks, connected to an armory. You settle in, and get back to the Captains. "You take your pick of the postings today Isaac for your service on the road. No man was quicker to react than you,"You picked out an easier detail, Margery's, and were soon following and oggling the princess as she was led on a tour by a steward. Towards the back of the pack, you and Geof shot the shit. And like everyone in this retinue it seemed, the conversation was often focused on how many times Margery could last in a night. --- Finally, the shift comes to an end. And you are in free reign of your time for the next 12 hours.> Welcome to Storm's End, what next?
>>385732Just do some wondering, I guess? Get a good lay of the place. See interesting things.
train a bit and wander about. Might be best to get a feel for the area before we do anything else or something happens.
>>385732Let's see the sights and do some training
>>3857321) Place bets in advance for the tornie we know the results for.2) Anyone here selling Obsidian? if we can get it cheap nab a dagger or something.3) Otherwise just chat and bro it up with the Stag Guards. We must become a man of many contacts after all.
>>385732>Might be best to get a feel for the area before we do anything else or something happens.I say take a look around the place, learn more about it, maybe see some nobles, just wander and see what their is to see. We can always train another day let's explore1) Place bets in advance for the tornie we know the results for.2) Anyone here selling Obsidian? if we can get it cheap nab a dagger or something.3) Otherwise just chat and bro it up with the Stag Guards. We must become a man of many contacts after all.Also this shit
Well, I don't know. What's there to do in here? I don't exactly know what is going on around here at this point of time.
in the evenings while we are here unless otherwise stated we should get back to our medical practice.
>>385770Well, the great melee with Brienne isn't happening yet.
I don't think there is a tourney in here. Hand's tourney will be held at King's landing, not in here.
I'd like some alchemy tutoring if the Maesrer's got time.
>>385732I'm still here OP, waiting
how has nobody asked this kid where he is from?On the show thats like the first thing they ask a stranger after their name
>>386360I think we should claim amnesia.
>>386392We've already hinted that we're some kooky foreigner to Ealinor. They might just conclude that we did not in fact suffer a Marijuana induced concussion resulting in amnesia. I would say that we need a better explanation. Maybe we're from some semi-nomadic peoples or from beyond the wall.
>>386635Dude until Jon Snow happened Wildlings were fair murder practice if you saw one south of the wallAnd that being said - hey guys, OP here. Trying to fit as many posts as I can in per day, but sadly a man can't make money off of running quests all day so he needs to work at his new job that started yesterday (kill me) and school, so I apologize if I ever drop out at night like that.It's mainly because I'm really tired and pass out at my desk, and wake up like now really confused and with an aching neck. I'll see you nogs tomorrow
>>386671Nig Nog see you later. Hope you have some days off
>>386683Does he mean tomorrow as in today in europe ..
>>386671Thanks for running the quest! Looking forward to next time!
What's op's time zoneAlso op needs to get Twitter
>>386741U.SAnd yeah I know Twitter is needed...I'll make it tomorrow. Damnit
>>386761PST, CST, or EST?
>>386761There's a lot of time zones in the US
>>386768CSTAlso, as a hint to y'all that are champing on the bit.Research where Renly is during the Tournament of the Hand
Okay so there's a thread today rightIt's still basically yesterday in America
>>386774Yo Dang I'm at PST west coast here.I hate it >:^( But I live with it.>>386778It past 45 after midnight here.
>>386783Thanks, I learn something everyday.
>>386784No problem merica-bro
>>386774Wait we're going to King's Landing aren't weOhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
>>386774Isn't he in loris' tent
>>386799He competes in the tournament in the books, so does Loras, Gregor AND Sandor Clegane, Jamie, Barristan Selmy, Thoros of Myr, Berric Dondarion, and a shit ton of other main characters
>>386801''Twas a jest m'lord
>>386801While we wait in the shadows betting all our wages to one character that wins. We can do whole types of betting, putting money on who wins first second third. But that will play a risk of cheater shit. So we could just bet all on the winner.
>>386803I kno but I'm hype, so much intriguey shit happens in this scene in the books so we have a lot to go off of - Like Loras riding a mare in heat to fuck up Gregor's horse during the joust, we'll see a red priest, we know every tilt and win/loss.
>>386805Just use more than one bookie and your sound, still nervous use several names, gambling back in this age works on tickets we'll be fine.
>>386830Do that since I want all the money we can get. Also that many bookies and how big the tournament is no one will find out. Let's not tell anyone of our winning. Soldiers are known to bet so we have to white lie to the other troops
Once we get the money, what's our plan next? We can probably hitch a ride from king's landing to anywhere really. If we want to go Stannis the Mannis route, we could come up with a plan to extract the Stark kids and deliver them to Stannis, which means there will be no king in the north.
>>386951Additionally, we could try to steal or buy the dragon eggs from Illyrio Mopatis before they make it to Dany, which would take us to Pentos.
>>386953not this bit bud. To far plus will draw far too much attention plus no where near enough time. Might I suggest the following. Begin investing that money into better gear for our self and those close. buy loyalty and favors.I like what you said about Kings Landing. I suggest we make our move when things are about to go down, we can be there with Renly. We can warn Stark and tell him that the Gold Cloaks will betray him, tell him to have other people present when Robs on his last legs, don't confront Cersei and blow it. We can take Sansa and maybe even Arya then and there so if we can't save Ned we already have the girls safe...Maybe grab Gendry if we bump into him. If we need Stark to trust us and he refuses we just lean in and say "Promise me Ned"... if the think skulled northerner say we know the secret that no one is even looking forIf we manage to get the girls sent away we should hang around in the background and if needs be with the help of Vary's get Stark out of the cells and smuggle him out of town.A Stark jail break could be fun.
>>386984>If we need Stark to trust us and he refuses we just lean in and say "Promise me Ned"... if the think skulled northerner say we know the secret that no one is even looking forehh?repeat in english please
>>386984The main problem with this though is that Varys and Littlefinger might be pissed at us. Question is should we kill them? Littlefinger will keep trying to plunge Westeros to chaos if we let him be. Our main strenght right now is that nobody knows of us, or our motivations. There may be suspicions that we are an agent of someone because of our learning, but nobody knows of whom. We should come up with a suitable lie to tell them if people start wondering why a nobody was able to perform such a masterstroke with such surgical precision.
>>386990Something something promise to his wife.
>>386990It's a hint to the last words he said to his Sister, that we know John Snow is a Targ and since he was the only person there we gotta be something unique to know.
>>387001Kill little finger but for the love of god make sure no one knows it was us. Vary's keep alive, while dodgy as fuck he is in it for the realm.
>>387016>>387005oh thatI was confused for a sec
I think we should pursue occult knowledge as well. Magic is real after all and returning to the world. We probably already know that blood, life and death are keys to help unlocking the secrets of magic from our lore.If we figure out that shit, we can forge an Empire.
>>387028I'd suggest not getting too into magic...aside from the fact that vary's would have us killed off, the Maester's will not like us that much. I suggest we stick with our plan for Tyrell rule. From there we can build and spread our influence.
>>387018Blowing gun, needle and poison should do the trick. Ultimately since we technically have nothing to gain from his death, we aren't a suspect and without any eyewitnesses, there is not a whole lot they can do unless they get on your trail with trained dogs before the trail grows cold. However, get on a boat and even that is out of the window.Only way they can get on your trail after that is if they figure out who sold you the stuff, but if you got it from a guy that's no longer in town, well...
>>387045Tyrells were from the start on the side of the Baratheons with marriage to Renly. If we save Starks, Ned will back Stannis. Renly will probably not go out on his own if Stannis has serious backing. Tyrells will probably agree to ally with the same deal they had before seeing that people think Stannis is shooting blanks.
>>387058mmnn most likely.
>>387065If we get the Iron Bank to back Stannis as well early on in order to protect their investments, that's going to practically seal the deal.
>>387074At this point the crown is Baratheon so they already are supporting them what the issue is, is Tywin Lanister.
>>387074I also just realized, we are infact one man, we need allies, we need the Tyrells to trust us and Renly to so we can send people to do tasks. We can't do this alone, we need to stay ambiguous too
>>387080I rate we keep serving the tyre'sSave nedFuck a princessBecome a knightHelp jon snow
>>387080>>387099If we serve the Tyrell and save Ned we'll have to convince him to support Renly baratheon instead of Stannis the mannis "heretic purge" Baratheon.It might be hard but not impossible.I mean he's for the legitimate succession line but like Renly said himself the old isn't always the most fit to be king.I'm sure that by talking about the mad king, wildfire caches and Jon snow being clearly the calmest and most thought out of his sons he might start understanding.Tho don't think you guys can blackmail him into joining, while revealing Jon snow identity could cause a shock it would not be a problem for Ned, in fact i'm sure he's gonna do if we save him, the only person who wanted to kill all Targaryens is dead.So yeah securing maybe the Vale and the north to join Renly's side is the best thing we can do for the Tyrell.Dorne will surely join if there is support against the crown to get vengeance on the Lannisters.
>>387077If Stannis hadn't lost the battle of King's landing, the war would have been over then and there.
>>387109Renly thought that nobody should be allowed to read books except Maesters. He is not a good candidate for a king, except in terms of popularity.However, we are preparing for a zombie apocalypse. This is why we need a guy like Stannis.
>>387099You know, if we stole or bought the dragon eggs and managed to ship them to Jon, we could both fortify the wall and prevent the crazy bitch from using them for her personal gain.
>>387144>Stannis "i sacrifice everything i have for nothing" BaratheonNo he's not a good king nor is he going to be able to face white walkers, all that he would be is a godamn fraud of azor ahai, also the sept would cause much trouble and the Tyrells would end up fighting him.Renly stand with the Tyrell.Stannis stand with his mad ambition to be a prophetic hero and will go as far as sacrificing his brother for it and maybe his daughter too (not sure in the books).Stannis is not a good candidate for king and we don't need him if we have Ned to guard the north.
>>387160The show isn't canon.
>>387139>>387144>>387154We ain't getting them man, worth to much and way to far away for us to do that and other things. >>387109Pretty much nails what we gonna do. If we have Stannis not kill Renly via our intervention somehow. Get the Tyrell not to assist the Lanisters but aid the other side and it's all over. Be nice if we could get Dorne on side by offering to give them the Lanisters we take...
>>387160Also, he never bought into the whole thing about him being Azor Ahai. Nor did he burn his daughter for that matter. I think the only guy he ever really burned was that fucker wildling who wore bones.He doesn't even think that his magic sword is much good for anything except as a nightlamp.
>>387182We don't necessarily need to involve Dorne in the war at all.Oberyn does however have a grudge against Lannisters, if we'd sent him a call to arms, he might be inclined to have a go at the Cleganes.
>>387182Renly will never give up or let the tyrell support his brother instead of him and you know that.So either Ned will fight most the throne (instead of picking sides with renly or stannis) or he'll support Stannis making him technically against the Tyrell.This is a three side war.Tyrell+Renly vs Lannister scum vs Stannis the Mannis.Stannis whilst being a good Commander and an honest and really a godamn fraud but at least he knows it, he'll never be able to handle the Iron throne tho.He's gonna go mad as soon as he has no more goals.By the time the white walker come he'll be at war with the septons and the Tyrells.Really we should support Renly instead it would limit the bloodshed and he is far more popular as a King and he'll not fucking prozeletize the whole continent with R'hollor which is the god of light and child sacrificing which we don't need while we're already struggling with white walkers.Also i hope everyone plan on sending all the wildfire caches to the wall.
>>387253Stannis did not sacrifice his child nor anyone else's. All of that was made up by HBO.
>>387253Also, it's not like everyone in the seven kingdoms follows the seven to begin with. Whole lot of the realms still hold the old gods. This is just another god in the bucket. As long as he doesn't try to stir the hornet's nest, which considering how little stock he puts into his religion in the first place is pretty unlikely, all that's gonna happen is that a bunch of mormons in red will think he is Jesus without actually having any real power, because he doesn't buy into it.
>>387253Also, Renly is going to run the country worse than Robert. Only way I can agree into supporting him is if we gain control of the small council. Renly just spends all his time jousting with his Knights literally and figuratively. He's not going to be much help either with the crippling debts, the white walkers or the crazy lizard lady.
>>387449>run the country worse than RobertIs that possible? :)And Maegery will actually run things, so all's well or at least better.
>>387494Not in this situation. If after it was just gonna be peace and no catasrpohies then it would be fone, but its not. We have white walkers, crazy dragon people, Ironborn and zealots to deal with. We need a Military man like Stannis on the throne, having Renly be the heir is a much better position because he can give Stannis and his rule good pr without being incharge of anything
>>387494Do you honestly expect Tyrells to care much once the white walkers start pouring through the wall? Reachlands are as deep in the south as it goes. True, Margaery is pretty damn competent when it comes getting her way. Problem is, we don't know what her endgame is. We do know that she does at least care about keeping up appearances, so in that sense doing business with her wouldn't be difficult.
Might I suggest we never truly hold a small council position...that we are simply an ever present guard to the Tyrells. I suggest IF we manage to hold most things together we form the following>Hand of the King: Oberyn MartellSeduces both Dorne into being bloody useful and someone to"bent" Renly if needs be>Master of Whispers: VarysThe system works here>Master of Laws: Stannis (if we can save him)The dude is the definition of Lawful Neutral>Master of Ships: ???Working on it>Master of Coin: ???Working on it (we need Little Finger dead asap, don't tell or hire anyone...we have to do it, we can't be bought)>Lord Comander: Ser BarrisonSeriously keep the guy, dudes got experiance>Grand Maester: ???Drop the Lanister sympathiser asap>The White Walker ProblemOnce we secure power we start mining all the bloody Obsidian we can out of Dragon Stone, Second we send some Pyromancers up to the wall, they can produce Wyldfire there bit by bit. As for Military, standing armies don't work well in this era so I suggest instead we begin rotating Troops to staff the wall keeps, they ain't Nights Watch but they will have to do. It will reduce stress for the Watch too. And as an added bonus troops will get used to cold weather fighting while leaving enough rested to deal with Danni should she show up.
>>387531>Stannis>good pr Yeah, Stannis needs good PR, as noone, really noone, seems to like him...the Royal Fleet and family of his wife (Florent) declared for him... other than that, he only binds the few Dragonstone houses to his rule.>>387576>Barristan Now I want our protagonist get knighted by him :). The prestige of being knighted by Ser Barristan Selmy would be very very high...>Obsidian The face of the Night King when he tries to storm the Wall/Westeros and everyone and his dog has an Obsidian sword to stab his precious White Walker subordinates...
You know, we can always try to save Robert from his demise. This way we don't need to worry about Renly and Mannis.
>>387833yeah but thats gay mane
>>387840We could tell Robert that blonde hair is a recessive gene and it's an astronomically low chance that he's managed to churn out three statistical anomalies in a row and see where that goes.
Y'know, I think it's funny how everyone is planning so far into our future when we're still a shitty guardsman.It'll be even better when someone fucks up and we die.
>>387881I totally agree with you. I don't even think we have a plan to rank up from guardsman. It's as simple as>give elinor a list of the tournament winners>tell her if we start being right, she should show the list to Marg/QoT>we're important nowBoom
>>387881I agree we should worry about this stuff when we money and influence and we aren't some guard
>>387889Make it into a mysterious letter with the cover saying:"All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players;They have their exits and their entrances,And one man in his time plays many parts.">Inside there is a script reading out the roles and lines of all the participants of the tournament as if it was but a play all along.Make sure they open it just before the opening act to make it an extremely unnerving and surreal experience.
>>387881I do believe we need to find away to elevate ourselves beyond being a guard. Our strength is our knowledge of the world, not our minuscule combat prowess.
>>387973Easiest route would probably be to whore our self to renly/loras/both, since we're relativity pretty by aSoIaF standards
>>388019what do u find unpleasant about my note plan >>387889, is it that you'd prefer to get bummed?
>>388065Man Whoring seems to be the most surefire way to get a powerful lord behind us.
>>388076> get a powerful lord behind us.kek
>>388097hehehe/10 pun. if it comes down to it I've got your back
>>388097>>388109>>388136And getting cozy with Loras isn't a bad idea. He's his father's favorite, and it's handy to have a lord of the Reach around.
>>388148>it's handy to have a lord of the Reach around.
>>388148Was that another gay joke?
>>388233yes it was>reach around1. n: the performance of the act of masterbating a sexual partner, usually while the person performing this act is simultaneously performing doggy style, anal sex, or spooning on the same partner as the person on top.
>>387697Obsidian is a stone, it can't be used for swords, it may be able to stop a white walker weapon but it'll still break from the force of the weapons colliding which is why the Obsidian found north of the wall is in the form of small daggers/Arrow headsIf we do gather obsidian to be used as a weapon it will be best formed into throwing knives, arrow/bolt heads and daggers.
>>388508How does the obsidian kill the walkers, exactly, is it just death by touch? maybe we could powder it and launch obsidian death wind
>>388508Their also the ancient beaners tactics putting it in wooden clubs with obsidian.
>>388508If we're going to go obsidian weapons we should at least consider going full Mexican about it
>>388508Spearhead is probably the best use, realistically. It's a weapon we'll probably be trained with (what kind of guard doesn't learn how to use a spear?) and, lets face it, you don't really want to get closer to a White Walker than you need to.
>>388570if they hit the wood part with their swing, there goes the obsidian head, it would be touched by the weapon shattering magic but the shaft will be shattered.
>>388594also true of arrows, the difference is, there's a chance of using a spear twice.
>>388665I don't think the white walkers are bushido samurai masters or whatever and can slice an arrow out of the air which is flying at you full speed.
>>388688You sure about that?In one of the books a white walker cuts down a few arrows before they reach him.
>>388771I don't really give a shit my original argument was that obsidian can't be used in sword form and would be better used as throwing knives, arrow/bolt heads daggers and yes also spear heads.I don't really care if they can cut down arrows or not.
>>388843Using obsidian in the form of a sword is 100% possible, what are you sperging about?
>>388843Tell that to Dwarf Fortress.
>>388863Obsidian can be made into a sword but it'd be a shitty sword that won't last very well in a conflict, if you're blocking a strike the obsidian will eventually crack and shatter unlike a steel sword which bends and shakes from impact allowing it to keep its shape obsidian is stone which doesn't bend and shake, it shatters, have you seen a stone sword used in real life? No at best they've been axe heads, arrow and spear heads.>>388878Dwarf Fortress, work of fiction, the science behind a sword being made of obsidian, Fact.
>>388917>Dwarf Fortress, work of fictionGame of Thrones, work of fiction.Obsidian swords are 10/10, don't know who told you otherwise.Anyone that uses a sword to block a blow isn't that smart
Does any one know ofif we are playing as if Valerian steel is magic or simply really well made pattern welded\damascus type stuff
>>389243I really hope it's not made of magic bullshittium and is just a really good steel. I'll be happy if it's even just a steel alloy that's made with something that can actually be obtained.
>>389285Nah lorewise valyrian steel is pretty magical. You need magic to mend it and it has magical effects
>>388938Bruh obsidian is brittle rock, you can make a sword out of it like the Aztecs did by locking smaller pieces into a wooden frame though.
>>389308Obsidian in Minecraft is one of the hardest materials.
>>389349>Minecraft Alright, I think it's officially time to end this line of discussion.
>>389364I don't think you understand friend.It has only just started.
>>389387Oh yeah and kirito-Kun has the elucidator, which is also made of obsidian. Best sword for best senpai amirite?
