Also... I figured y'all were all older.

Re: General OOC
Zhahli's first act as Co-GM was to give us 15XP. I spent ten of my xp.

I also thought the others were older.

Looking forward to getting back under way.

Oh, and for the sake of full disclosure, Zhali is a ripe 24.

Re: General OOC
Can we get IC date stamps when the date changes in the IC threads??  There are a lot of things that are tied to the date.

Re: General OOC
Usuran perhaps you could give us all an idea of your characters strengths.


besides the addition of the new cousin, are all the other characters and relationships as before? Including Andern? Is our Lord travelling with us?

Re: General OOC
I believe there's been another change, but I'll let the responsible parties speak so I don't overstep myself.

It's my intention for Andern to be there, yes.

In reply to Jarek Storm (msg # 914):

I switched Daeryssa to Andern's little sister so that I wasn't so dependent on interaction with an NPC, which I thought would be a little unfair to the GM. Plus, playing Andern's wife after the sudden and irritating disappearance of Andern's player would have been kind of frustrating.
Daeryssa would have been fostered with another house until recently so as to preserve most of the current interactions (i.e. mostly unware of current family goings-on, rescued by Jarek while returning home, and so forth). But I can remain what I was if it would be easier for other players.

Usuran is bit of a generalist who is a bit above average in regards to fighting, social interaction, and intellectual matters.

One clearly valuable thing he has is the cadre advantage.  Since you guys decided have a unite of elite, well armed cavalry, it allowed me to invest a destiny point and bring another to the table.

I'm trying to wait and not post as Zhali until it's appropriate--I don't want to overpost and block somebody from posting, ya know?

Re: General OOC
I remember either reading or hearing that one the big things that impacted the house was a war with the mountain men.  Because it going to shape my responses I went to research it.  And found it was not in the house history or character backgrounds.

Can I get the following questions answered?

1) What was the scope? Local (or fief only), vicinity (our fief and surrounding fiefs), regional (whole Vale was mobilized and Warden of the East (Jon Ayrn) had to step in), or national (the whole seven kingdom had to intercede)?

2) What was the impact on our fief?  I know somehow Andern lost his wife and kids but  does not explain how the fief was impacted.  Was it light raiding (the feif was economically hurting but still producing), heavy raiding (all the peasants had fled behind stockades awaiting the return of safety),  devastation (anything outside castle sacked), or total loss (even the castle was taken and we had to flee for a time)?

I can guess what the answer was (vicinity with heavy raiding or devastation), but I did not want to be wrong.

Re: General OOC
Using your terminology, it's vicinity / heavy raiding.  It's partially why we only have a hamlet, for instance.

In reply to Daeryssa (msg # 926):

I have not firmly decided if he is a knight.

He is the feif's sheriff.  So if you are looking for a title there is one.

In the real world the sheriff managed the peasants, collected taxes, and enforced laws.  They were a bit like the middle management.  They took the orders of those on top and made sure they were implement ed.

I don't know exactly that works with Westeros, so I am leaving that a little undefined for now.

I suppose since she is relatively recently returned, Daeryssa wouldn't know anyways.

In reply to Daeryssa (msg # 928):

I have thought some more about it and decided he is knight.  But there is something tainted about his knighthood.  Given that you are really emphasizing naivity, your character is probably unaware of the details.  All she would know is that he was knighted by some elderly hedge knight that use to be a famous tourney knight.

Re: General OOC
Is this game dead, or moving slow in order finish my into in Chapter 1?

If it is please keep going in Chapter 2.  All I wanted to do in Chapter 1 was learn of the tournament, get permission to go, drop some ideas for future plot, and interact with anyone who wanted to interact with my character.

Please don't slow down posts on my behalf.

Re: General OOC
No, I'm just dealing with health issues at the moment.  One infection led to another, and in general life is pain.  It seems we've lost Roland, and potentially Tristan.
