Diplomacy of Ice & Fire II: Spring 298 AC

Postby Aeschines » 26 Jun 2018, 04:32

Fall 298 AC orders are due June 28 at 9pm Eastern Standard Time!

A Spider's Notes: 298/S,

The tragic and accidental death of King Robert Baratheon certainly has shocked the Seven Kingdoms. Though known for his recklessness, his strength of heart and character had lead many in King's Landing to believe that King Robert would live a deep and full life. Luckily for the Kingdom, his capable wife Cersei Lannister called for an impromptu meeting of the small council. To ensure the legitimacy of the discussion, she even invited Robert's brother, Stannis Baratheon. To the outside world, Stannis' presence was the shocking development but I have it on good authority that a different attendee was the source of the shrieks of surprise heard from within the council chamber that night. Rumor has it that the Dragon Queen herself, Daenerys Targaryen was also in attendance.

At Queen Cersei's insistence that complete group had a frank and stern conversation about that future of Westeros. With the death of King Robert the potential for chaos was nearly limitless. At that meeting a secret deal was brokered. Prince Viserys & Princess Myrcella would wed to seal the a new dynasty. Some reports of the meeting indicated that Lord Stannis marched out in a rage but other reports suggest his anger was carefully calculated to acknowledge the legitimacy of the arrangement while still appeasing his brother's supporters.

All who walk the halls of power walk the spider's web.
