Legend of the Night King:

Kaspar the Friendly Spook
In the Age of Heroes, 7889 years before Aegon the Conqueror landed in Blackwater Bay at the spot where the city of King's Landing would be built, when Westeros was still populated by the First Men, and the Andals were not yet known, not long after the Wall had been raised and the Night's Watch had formed, there lived a bastard son of a noblewoman and an unknown father who had been sent to the Wall to join the Night's Watch by Tristifer Stark, King of Winter and great-great-grandson of Bran the Builder, for attempting to steal the Crown of Winter. At the Wall, the man quickly rose through the ranks of the Night's Watch using his charisma and skill. Soon after his rise, the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch died under mysterious circumstances, and he was quickly declared the thirteenth Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. Around the same time, a young man on the other side of the Wall gained power among the Wildings. This man, who's name is Joramun, was known for his love of battle, and hatred of those from the south of the Wall as a the Night's Watch killed his parents.

During an expedition beyond the Wall to drive back a new incursion by the Others, the new Lord Commander of the Night's Watch got separated from his force, which was attacked by a band of Wildmen led by Joramun, and driven back, in his absence, and he came upon the most beautiful woman he had ever met. A woman who did not even seem human. He fell in love on first site, and spirited her away, bringing her back to Nightfort. There he broke the Vow he swore at the Hearttree of a Weirwood to the Night's Watch, and married her. Further breaking his Vow, he declared himself the Night King, placing a crown of obsidian upon his head. King Tristifer, upon hearing of the Night King's actions, ordered the Night's Watch to bring their new King's head. The Night's Watch did not comply, instead declaring their overwhelming support for the Night King, killing all who objected, and swearing new vows to the Night King, raising their swords in rebellion. At the same time, Joramun was declared King-Beyond-The-Wall by the Wildlings, and pledged his support for the Night King to promote chaos and disorder to the South, giving him and the Wildlings great freedom. In addition, attacks by the Others began to dwindle and disappear.

Now, it is the tenth year of the Nigh King's reign, and the King of Winter has yet to make any significant victories against the Night's Watch, though neither side has had many losses, and the Night King, growing bold, has begun expanding his forces both to the north and to the south. The King-Across-The-Wall has grown nervous of the Night King's encroachment, and feels as if he may replace the King of Winter, but be far worse. However, he still hopes that he can crush both the Night's Watch and the Northerners, so he holds out on declaring a side...
Ok, so this is an RP based around the A Song of Ice and Fire novels by George R. R. Martin, but it's set about 8000 years before the series, and in a time that not much is known about. In this, you'll get to play as a character from the Night's Watch, the Kingdom of the North, or Beyond the Wall, and I'll be playing as the Night King, the King of Winter, and the King-Beyond-The-Wall, treating them as NPCs. Knowledge of the series is not critical for joining this game, but it will certainly be helpful, and I'll try and keep all spoilers to the minimum.

Some knowledge for people who have never read the series: The Others are a race of magical ice zombies from the far north who have been pushing south for a long time. Because of this, Bran the Builder, the first King of Winter, decided to build the Wall, a 700 foot tall wall made entirely out of ice. The Night's Watch was formed on the wall, who's members are commonly called the Black Brothers because they view themselves as a family and only wear black. The Black Brothers abandon all titles and family they held previously, and swear the following vow:
Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all nights to come.
After swearing the vow, they can't abandon their post on the Wall, with a penalty of death for desertion. They're leader is called the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, and is elected by a majority vote of all the Black Brothers, and holds the position for life. To the south of the Wall is the Kingdom of the North, ruled by the King of Winter, also known as the King in the North, which is the northernmost of the kingdoms in the realm, called Westeros. To the North of the Wall are the Wildlings, who value freedom above all else. Sometimes, a Wildling will become powerful enough, and gain enough followers, to effectively be the ruler of the land beyond the wall, and is called the King-Beyond-The-Wall. The Wildlings are traditional enemies of the Night's Watch.

Character sheets should be formatted like:
  • Name:
  • Titles: (If any.)
  • Gender: (Note, unless you play a Wildling, or have a good excuse, all combatants should be male.)
  • Age:
  • Faction: (Night's Watch, Kingdom of the North, or Wildling.)
  • Equipment:
  • Appearance:
  • Personality:
  • History:
  • Strengths:
  • Weaknesses:
  • Other information:

Let me make three example write ups (Note: all information in these are what your characters would know, not necessarily the truth. Please do not do that, and tell the truth, not what common knowledge is. In addition, since these are the three leaders, they are supposed to be better than the rest, at least the first two are, though not perfect, so please include more weaknesses.):
  • Name: Jorah Snow
  • Titles: Night King
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 38
  • Faction: Night's Watch
  • Equipment: A beautiful obsidian crown made to look like black flames dance upon the wearer's head, and seems to somehow magically move. In addition, he has pure black armor, a black cloak, and a black greatsword called Night's Fang.
  • Appearance: Jorah is tall and handsome with beautiful long black hair, tied back in a ponytail. He has blue eyes, and pale skin. He appears slightly gaunt after a close inspection, but it isn't obvious at all other times.
  • Personality: Jorah is harsh, but fair. He is kind to all those who follow him, but is ready to do what is needed to all those who do wrong or go against him.
  • History: He was born a bastard son of the Lord Bolton's wife and an unknown father. He grew up in Dreadfort, until he was involved in an incident in Winterfell where he attempted to steal the Crown of Winter. At the Wall, Jorah quickly rose through the ranks of the Night's Watch using his charisma and skill. Soon after his rise, the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch died under mysterious circumstances, and Jorah was quickly declared the thirteenth Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. During an expedition beyond the Wall to drive back a new incursion by the Others, Jorah got separated from his force and he came upon the most beautiful woman he had ever met. A woman who did not even seem human. He fell in love on first site, and spirited her away, bringing her back to Nightfort. There he broke the Vow he swore at the Hearttree of a Weirwood to the Night's Watch, and married her. Further breaking his Vow, he declared himself the Night King, placing a crown of obsidian upon his head. During his reign, he led the Night's Watch's forces against the King of Winter's, and beat his enemies back time after time, managing to avoid major casualties. Now, he has become bold, and has begun expanding his forces both to the north and to the south.
  • Strengths: His natural charisma. His incredible speed in combat. His skill with the sword.
  • Weaknesses: His endurance and strength are merely average. Other than that, he has no real weaknesses.
  • Other information: None.

  • Name: Joramun
  • Titles: King-Beyond-The-Wall
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 34
  • Faction: Wildling
  • Equipment: A simple steel crown. Light leather armor, a large, 20 foot spear, and a longsword.
  • Appearance: Joramun is tall and handsome with beautiful short red hair. He has green eyes. He is rather large and always wears a cheerful expression on his face, especially in battle. He wears a patchwork cloak of all the colors of the rainbow.
  • Personality: Joramun loves combat, and is downright vicious in it. He is always cheerful. He loves wine and women. He is well known for getting in fights with other Wildlings that end with him and his opponent laughing together as they drink wine.
  • History: Joramun was hailed at birth as "kissed by fire" for his red hair. When he was three, a band of Black Brothers ambushed his parents, and killed them. Ever since that day, he's hated everyone from the Wall and the South of the Wall. Over time, he became renowned for his strength and charisma, and he soon garnered respect from many Wildlings. After successfully beating back a force from the Wall with a band a tenth it's size, he was declared King-Beyond-The-Wall. He cleverly began to play the Night King and King of Winter against each other, declaring support for the Night King's claim, while sending Wildling's across the wall in secret to discuss things with the King of Winter, but never come to any deal. However, as of late, he has become concerned about the encroachment's by the Night's Watch into Wildling territory, and has, thus, been considering dropping all pretenses, and joining the King of Winter in the war against the Night King.
  • Strengths: His incredible strength, greater than any other man alive. His above average speed. His natural charisma. His skill with the spear.
  • Weaknesses: His gruffness and tendency to get into unnecessary fights.
  • Other information: None.

  • Name: Tristifer Stark
  • Titles: King of Winter
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 58
  • Faction: Kingdom of the North
  • Equipment: A crown of a clear rock thought to be diamonds created by Bran the Builder. Practical steel armor. A longsword called Ice (not the same Ice from the series, but the sword it was named after).
  • Appearance: Tristifer is tall with greying black hair. It is clear that his years have taken a toll on him as he is wrinkled and slow.
  • Personality: Tristifer is a good king, but slow to action. He always seeks the path of least resistance first before resorting to more drastic measures. He has a distaste for combat, and dislikes war, as a result. He is very honorable, and always tries to do the right thing.
  • History: While Tristifer is his father's first boy, he is the fifth son of his father's third wife. He has ten elder siblings, all girls. As a result, he was very young when his father died, and he took the throne. As a result, he tried to prove himself as a strong king very early on by invading the Riverlands to his south. It was in this war that he learned to dislike fighting, and discovered the horrors of war. However, he also learned that he was an excellent negotiator, and brokered a peace with his enemies. With the treaty, he married the Riverlord's third daughter. Since the war, his rule has been relatively quiet. He now rules with his two sons and his daughter being beaten back by the Night King again and again. He hopes to broker an alliance with the King-Beyond-The-Wall to end this war.
  • Strengths: A strong negotiator. Very observant.
  • Weaknesses: Weak. Old. Slow. Little endurance.
  • Other information: None.

It also means that you should give all the information about your characters, not just what is common knowledge, and including secrets.

  • Name: Mart Dayne
  • Titles: (none)
  • Gender: (male)
  • Age: 26
  • Faction: (Night's Watch)
  • Equipment: (Aurochs hide coat, bow)
  • Appearance: (Stocky and moderately tall, with white hair and a Glasgow Grin partially covered by sideburns)
  • Personality: (Impatient, has a violent hatred for all wildlings, does not like to see any of his fellow rangers hurt or unhappy.)
  • History: At age five, Martyn Dayne became page to his father's cousin, ranger Harald Dayne of the Night's Watch. It was a relatively peaceful year, and it was thought that a year at Castle Black might disabuse Mart of his desire to join the Watch. At age Six, Mart was kidnapped by a particularly violent tribe of Wildlings, who cut out his tongue and gave him his Glasgow Grin. Rescued at age ten by his uncle Harald Dayne, who gave him his Aurochs hide coat and returned him to Castle Black. Has served the night's Watch ever since, and has worn Harald's Auroch-Hide coat ever since.
  • Strengths: (moves quietly, observant, can shoot a bow quickly and accurately at short range, knows the wildling language from four years with Wildlings)
  • Weaknesses: (Cannot talk, cannot read or write, cannot shoot a bow very accurately at long range, build and coat make Mart Dayne an easy target at long range)
  • Other information: none

That works. He's in.

Also, I should note that, when I say common knowledge, I mean common knowledge to the people the character rules.

Oh, and there are a couple of people who I'm going to be including, specifically a right hand man and an executioner for the Night King, a couple of commanders for the King-Beyond-The-Wall, and the two princes and the princess for the Kingdom of the North who, since I really don't have the specifics for them, yet, I'm fine with someone writing them up, and playing as one of them.

  • Name: Howel Snow
  • Titles: None.
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 28
  • Faction: Kingdom of the North
  • Equipment: typical black Watch uniform
  • Appearance: Garth is extremely average in almost every regard. Brown haired and green eyed, the only remarkable thing about his face is his facial hair. Unlike the hair on his head, it is a reddish-brown. He is of average height and average build.
  • Personality: Seemingly atypical for a bastard, and possibly because of this, he clings to his honor and is honest and reliable to a fault though he is not ashamed of his lack of a father. He takes great pride in his job as a lowly steward. Although he loved his position and finally having a purpose, he grew increasingly uncomfortable with the Watch's oath breaking and fled south in hope of finding allies to reclaim the Wall. Though he was once known for his determination, constant rejection has taken its toll.
  • History: Born to a minor lord's daughter in the riverlands, he grew up poor. He spent his life working diligently for his grandfather, who loved him despite his bastardry. Upon his grandfather's death, Garth's uncle inherited the property and, despising the reminder of his sister's infidelity, shipped the boy off to the Watch. This turned out to be a blessing for the boy, as his wish of having a purpose beyond "bastard" was fulfilled. He was assigned to the stewards and took his vows, he became well-respected among the new recruits and lower steward for his helpfulness and honesty. About two years after the Watch's declaration of independence, he escaped the Wall and headed towards Winterfell to seek aid. He met with King Tristifer and, despite not receiving the aid he wanted, was convinced to stay and council the king on matters of the Watch. Though he remains a Black Brother at heart, he has since joined the northern army.
  • Strengths: He is good at remaining unnoticed and is extremely reliable.
  • Weaknesses: He has little skill with weapons and no actual combat experience. Illiterate. His lack of formal education shows. Far from charismatic.
  • Other information: None.

Right, never done this before so feel free to correct me if I do anything wrong smile

Any limitation on how important a character we can take? I see this guy as a minor general in the Bolton force (perhaps a hundred men under him), but he can easily take a few more points in Black Sheep if he needs to be less prominent. His brother doesn't like him much as it is.

  • Name: Rodrik Bolton
  • Titles: Younger brother of the Lord of the Dreadfort
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 24
  • Faction: Kingdom of the North
  • Equipment: Lance, longsword "Dread", hereditary skinning knife, faintly pink-hued steel armour with a blood-red helm fashioned like a screaming flayed head.
  • Appearance: Pale red-brown eyes, lank black hair, medium height and slight build. Pale skin. Generally unimposing look, but with a determined look in his eyes.
  • Personality: Somewhat bitter and proud, regretful at having to fight a half-brother he was close to as a child. Resents his true brother's primacy as he considers himself more intelligent, but admits Marys makes a better warrior. Has no real ambition to depose him, though, as he has no taste for infanticide. In contrast to his brother, dislikes the family tradition of flaying and torture, leading to the nickname behind his back of "the Bloodless". His dislike of the King of Winter is an open secret, though the reason, if any, is a mystery; the current war has not helped matters.
  • History: Grew up the somewhat overlooked second son of the ancient, bedridden Lord of the Dreadfort (father to Jorah Snow). His elder brother Marys "Manhide" had ruled in his decrepit father's stead until he died in mysterious circumstances, and Lord Marys has a brood of healthy, ambitious children of his own. Rodrik sees himself as his brother's advisor, but in reality is largely ignored. He and Jorah were close as children (although Rodrik never let his bastard brother forget his place), and he briefly considered taking the Black along with him.
  • Strengths: Intelligent. A good tactician and politician. A good horseman and able swordsman.
  • Weaknesses: A tendency to physical cowardice. Little respect from Bolton men, many of whom prefer his elder brother. Retains some love for his once-kin, and resents King Tristifer's treatment of him.
  • Other information: Has a minor Karstark boy for a squire, has had him taught to read so he can personally manage his master's ravens. His banner-bearer carries the old flayed skin of a convicted murderer, while Lord Marys takes a new hide after every battle.

...The last Lord Bolton died under mysterious circumstances the night after Jorah Snow and Marys Bolton had a midnight meeting, and the day before Jorah went on a trip to Winterfell, which he never returned from because it was the trip he got implicated in the murder of the third son of the brother of Lord Greystark, and got sent to the Wall.

Anyway, Rodrick is accepted.

One point on timing — didn't Night's King rule for thirteen years before he was deposed?

http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Night's_King (gah, can't make it work with the apostrophe in the URL...)

Also, the King in the North is said to be his brother, but you could always put either detail down to poetic licence on the part of storytellers.

You could make him Tristifer's father's bastard son by Bolton's wife-to-be, conceived on their wedding night under First Night privilege. That makes both our stories work (and gives a nice grudge for House Bolton to hold for several hundred years).

Well, that's the good part of having it set in a legendary time period. Everything known about it are used as children's stories.

Also, do you mind if I change my character's name? I choose "Garth" because it was the first name I thought of and "Rivers" because it was the first non-Snow bastard I thought of. I think I'd rather go with [undecided first name] Snow.

[up] Until I realized that you made him Bolton, I thought you were making Tristifer the father and were going to have him die/replaced fairly early.

...And maybe his crime was to beat Tristifer half to death over some issue of heredity (before T became King). Means It's Personal, and gives Jorah a nice reason to want to call himself a King in the first place.

The problem with that is beating the King of Winter half to death would get you the death penalty, with no option of going to the Wall. Implicated in a murder that it's unclear of whether or not he's responsible would get him sent to the Wall.

...Hmm... Maybe he got sent there for trying to steal the Crown of Winter during the night?

He's a blood relative, the King might not want to execute him. Maybe "half to death" is over-the-top, but if he attacked him and gave him a good kicking with no provocation (and clearly no intent to do him serious harm).

But yeah, your idea works too.

Ok, I've edited the op in several places. Did I miss anywhere?

Also, that wouldn't work because I want it to be unclear to the characters the relationship between the King of Winter and the Night King until later.

  • Personality: introverted and distrustful, snippy to people she does not know, secretly somewhat curious about life south of the wall, likes learning about history
  • History: Her father died of severe food poisoning when she was twelve, and she is estranged from her mother, who prefers her two stronger, more handsome brothers. However, she remains on good terms with those brothers, mostly because they saved her once on the battlefield when she was badly injured. She does not like to fight, but loves the freedom of wildling culture and is willing to kill to preserve it. Recently she has been learning how to handle healing herbs (she wants to help the wounded like her brothers helped her) and tended a minor general/lieutenant/something like that, Eliund, back to health. This higher-up in the wildling army has taken a liking to her and considers himself in her debt.
  • Strengths: quick thinking in battle and swift movement
  • Weaknesses: not physically strong, stubborn
  • Other information: She served the meal that caused her father to die, harbors guilt over this.
