Diplomacy of Ice & Fire II: Fall 299 AC

Postby Aeschines » 07 Jul 2018, 16:22

Winter 299 AC orders are due July 8 at 9pm Eastern Standard Time!
Note: Apologies for the slow update. We had our first NMR, but they got their orders in within the automatic 24 hour extension.

A Spider's Notes: 299/F,

Reports suggest that Lord Tywin himself has lead the Lannister First Fleet in an assault that breached the walls of Pyke. Though the Ironmen fought bravely, when Tywin captured the citadel only one man's life was spared. Theon Greyjoy, heir to Balon and the future ruler of the Iron Islands, was brought back in fetters to Casterly Rock. Ostensibly, Theon is a hostage to prevent future Greyjoy aggression but with Tywin's successes at Flint's Flinger - the only Greyjoy base on the mainland - it seems that the power of the Ironborn is broken, for at least another generation. The last remnants of the Iron Fleet are likely to turn on Balon himself if, or perhaps more accurately: when Tywin forces Lord Theon to renounce all claims to the island and repudiate his father before being executed. As someone with experience both with "confessions" and Tywin Lannister, this is just a matter of time.

The snakes have begun to give way in the south. Doran's order for his spearmen to retreat to Yronwood has given the Tyrells the firm grip on the Prince's Pass that they have long desired. From there, Oleanna (for lets not pretend her foolish son truly heads the Tyrell House) can wreak havoc across the Dornish deserts. With the support of the Baratheons, the Tyrells could soon be lords of all the castles from the Stepstones to the Salt Shore. The death of Doran Martell in disgrace seems likely but, honestly, I see that only as a side show from the main event. With the Lannisters obliterating the Greyjoys and the Tyrells & Baratheons doing the same to the Martells the true conflict seems to be on the tip of Westeros' tongue.

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

Pootleflump - House Targaryen
Dear Iskis

Little Henriette has almost recovered from that frightful ordeal with the Dragon Slayer. But she's eaten far too many pancakes so we've sent her forth to you with the orders for House Targaryen:

Little Henriette.jpg

The Orders Are in That Little Pouch on her back

Bay of Crabs to Northern Narrow Sea... succeeded
D.S.Isle to Narrow Sea... succeeded
Myr hold... succeeded

Khaleesi

"Fire and Blood."

StarkAdder - House Martell
Most noble Aeschines:

Did you ever have that feeling that a great party is taking place near you, but you did not get an invitation? That is how we feel in Dorne these days. The Targaryens are making pancakes and offering whiskey to all neighbours and weddings abound, but my beautiful Sand Snake nieces remain alone in our deserts, bereft of companionship. I do not travel well myself, but it is sad that no one else in my House gets any invitations, just a lot of unexpected visits from our closest neighbours. I have sent many Ravens to other lands, but none return.

Still, we soldier on, and prepare to fall back to defend our homelands against the hordes. We do warn our northern neighbours that Tyrells may grow a lot, but that is only because they are always hungry, and the Barratheons tend to claim thrones whenever they conquer.

Our moves for this lonely autumn of despair:

A Prince's Pass MOVE Yronwood... succeeded
A Sandstone HOLD... unit dislodged autodestroyed
F Sea of Dorne HOLD... succeeded
F Sunspear MOVE to the Stepping Stones... succeeded

Yours,

Doran Martell
Prince of what remains of Dorne

"Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken."

willie23 - House Stark
F Brandon’s Gift MOVE Beyond the Wall... bounced
F Bay of Seals SUPPORT Brandon’s Gift to Beyond the wall... supported unit failed
A The Neck MOVE Western Swamps... succeeded
A Moat Cailin SUPPORT The Neck to Western Swamps... supported unit succeeded

"Winter Is Coming."

Sour Flour - House Greyjoy
NSS support Beyond the Wall to hold
Harlaw -> Casterly Rock... bounced
Ironman's Bay convoy Harlaw -> Casterly Rock... convoyed unit failed

"We Do Not Sow."

ccloughley - House Lannister
The Third fleet in Lannisport once again sets sail to the Golden Sea to bring reinforcements to the besiegers of Pyke.... succeeded
The Second fleet in Casterly Rock sets sail to the Ironman's Bay in order to cut off the Greyjoy route of escape... bounced
The First fleet in Pyke continues to lay siege to what remains of the castle... succeeded, captures Greyjoy Heir
The First army in Stoney Sept marches into Riverrun in order to finalise the details of an alliance... succeeded
The Second army in The Twins abandons their defenses and marches North into Flint's Finger... succeeded

"Hear Me Roar!"

Groo - House Baratheon
F Southern Narrow Sea -> Tyrosh... succeeded
F Griffin's Roost -> Sea of Dorne... bounced
A Dornish Marches s Ashford ->Princes's Pass... supported unit succeeded
A RK -> King's Landing... suceeded

The 7 houses have wars with each other. To the north, we see the Lannisters and the Greyjoys, and to the south, the Tyrells, Baratheons and the Martells. I, as the leader of the Tyrells, would like to prove to everyone that we are truly "Growing Strong".

With that said, here are my orders as House Tyrell for Fall 299:

Western Summer Sea-Salt Shore... succeeded
Starfall-Sandstone... succeeded
Blackmont S Starfall-Sandstone... supported unit succeeded
Ashford-Prince's Pass... succeeded
Shield Isles-Highgarden... illegal order (Shield Isles & Highgarden do not border)

"Growing Strong."

I'll take a full casket of Glen Pentos to celebrate my inauguration as the King of the Andals and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, and Protector of the Realm. Just in case we'll be needing a Grand Hall Bloodbath.

I'd also like to order 10 bottles of a NIGHT WITH THE QUEEN for personal use. I heard my queen might like it.

I understand that this means 11 Dothraki Chargers will be joining me as well. Get your best men ready Khaleesi.

We offer a complimentary 'select your own Dothraki Charger' service. Or I can just box up the first eleven that come to hand (so to speak). They are all fine specimens.
