Diplomacy of Ice & Fire: Fall 298 AC

Postby Aeschines » 29 Jun 2018, 04:12

Winter 298 AC orders are due June 29 at 9pm Eastern Standard Time!
Note: Please, please do not invent abbreviations for the spaces. It got at least one of you into trouble. I process what is unambigious, but I don't like to have to make judgment calls. Danke.

A Spider's Notes: 298/F,

The sheen of duty has veiled the coming conflict. At her grandmother's behest, the lovely Margaery Tyrell has wed Stannis Baratheon, the brother of late King Robert. The match shocked the court as it comes so quickly on the heels of the death Lord Baratheon's late wife after she disagreed with a meal... A very particular meal I might add. Few doubt that this four-cornered wedding cake spells concern for Prince Doran in Sunspear and the self-proclaimed King of the Iron Islands. They may take comfort in the distraction these affairs of the heart have caused. It was presumably after a night with his new bride that Lord Baratheon sent a messenger ship into the wrong sea, in attempt to give orders to his fleet.

In the west, the Lannisters have declared open war against the Greyjoys. Tywin Lannister allegedly cut off the hands & feet of ten priests of the drowned god, pushed them off of a ship just a mile from Pyke and suggested that they swim home. With the three greatest of the great houses and the Targaryens seemingly in concert, the chaos feared and wished for seems still at least a year away.

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

Pootleflump - House Targaryen
He held me close. He drew me to his chest. We danced. Those violins... sigh. I thought I was lost, but I was found. My heart is his and only his. We start our adventure together.

To my Darling.....

Our love will be the guiding force that charts the course of our tomorrows, holds our world together in difficult times, and will make life itself shine bolder and brighter than we human beings have a right to dream of.

Look after my heart. Do not let me down.

Braavossi Coast move Pentos... succeeded
Bay of Crabs move Duskendale... succeeded

"Fire and Blood."

StarkAdder - House Martell
Most noble Iskis the Spider, and Aeschines too:

It has been an interesting year so far, beginning with the death of King Robert Barrelatheon, may he rest in pieces. We cannot forget the war he created nor the death of my fair sister and nieces and nephews at the swords of his coalition of marauders. For that reason alone, we support the beautiful Khaleesi Daenerys, Mother of Dragons and apparently a Lannister too, an ungodly coupling indeed.
Also for that reason, as well as his ill-tempered and demanding recent Ravens, we declare war on the brother of King Robert, Stannis, who is most definitely NOT a Barrel of Laugheons.

Herewith our moves for the fall of 298 AC:

A Prince's Pass MOVE to the Dornish Marches... bounced
F Sea of Dorne SUPPORT A Prince's Pass to the Dornish Marches... supported unit failed
A Salt Shore MOVE to Sandstone... succeeded

With finest regards from the lands of extra arrows, straight spears and intact shields (i.e., "things that are unbowed, unbent and unbroken"),

"Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken."

willie23 - House Stark
F Dreadfort MOVE Karhold... succeeded
A Moat Cailin HOLD... succeeded

“We here at the House of Stark are training up some more troops for war. Because we believe in war, war, and more war. And also peace but only if you listen to what we have to say. Our leader is now Jon Snow, and he is giving half control to some gal named Sansa(don’t know why). Plus we are changing our motto: “Winter is Coming”. Our new motto is: “We will crush you then eat dinner”. Oh and Robb Stark is still alive. He was just taking a nap downstairs.”
"Winter Is Coming."

Sour Flour - House Greyjoy
Pyke -> NSS... suceeded
Harlaw -> Flint's Fingers... succeeded
Ironman's Bay convoy Harlaw -> Flint's Fingers... supported unit succeeded

"We Do Not Sow."

ccloughley - House Lannister
The Second Army in the Riverlands marches North to defend The Twins from the Greyjoy menace... succeeded
The First Army in the Crownlands marches North to Harrenhall in an attempt to formalise an alliance... succeeded
The First Fleet in Lanisport sails out to the Golden Sea in an attempt to wrest control of the seas from House Greyjoy... succeeded

"Hear Me Roar!"

Groo - House Baratheon
A Stormlands S DM to hold... supported unit succeeded
A DM hold... succeeded
F NS to GR... illegal order, no unit in NS ("Narrow Sea" being the only unambigious interpretation)

Stannis Baratheon MARRY Margaery Tyrell at Storm's End... succeeded

"Ours Is the Fury."

AKFD - House Tyrell
A Searoad-Shield Isles.. succeeded
A Hornhill-Ashford... succeeded
F Redwyne Straits-Arbor... succeeded

Margaery Tyrell will MARRY Stannis Baratheon and will reside in Storm's End... succeeded

"Growing Strong."

Winter Unit & SC Count
ccloughley - House Lannister... 3 Units, 5 SCs (2 builds)
AKFD - House Tyrell... 3 Units, 5 SCs (2 builds)
StarkAdder - House Martell... 3 Units, 4 SCs (1 builds)

Congratulations to the Tyrells and Baratheons.

I hope for many violins and much dancing. I am fond of men's chests and dancing.

What happens this phase. Are we building? Are we ordering moves?

Khaleesi has temporarily misplaced the rules along with the dragons nail clippers and the remote control.....
