Diplomacy of Ice & Fire: Spring 300 AC

Fall 300 AC orders are due May 18 at 9pm Eastern Standard Time!

A Maesters Account of the Beginning of the Three Hundredth Year Since Aegon's Conquest,

Oh, woe is it to be a learned man. Word has only just reached my ears from the Citadel at Oldtown that Dornish brigands have sacked the city. Though the Septons and Maesters were able to prevent their own buildings from burning, few expect the savage Dornish to be satiated with seizing the castle alone. Rumor has it that the Citadel has even ordered the pretty young men training to be maesters to be hidden from the eyes of the Dornish barbarians. Unfortunately, it does not appear that hope is on the way. Though the Tyrells fought a mighty battle against the desert-dwellers in Summer Sea, but were unable to seize the coast of Oldtown, leaving the Redwyne fleet outside the sea walls. Just north, the Tyrell castle at Highgarden has already been assaulted by desperate Lannister forces, bent on revenge. Though they were defeated, brave King Stannis has ordered his forces marched into Ashford and there are even rumors that he might move to seize Highgarden, though no charges have been formally leveled against any of the Tyrells.

That a charge is forthcoming, has become less in doubt as of late. I recently heard rumor that the Tyrells have been in talks to wed their beautiful heir Margaery Tyrell to the lackwit child of the so-called "King" Balon Greyjoy of the Iron Islands. Though no wedding has been held, it would certainly be within the rights of King Stannis to hold the Tyrells accountable if those treasonous whispers are indeed true. in Essos, good news has arrived from Braavos. The brave and loyal fleets of House Stark have reclaimed the city of canals from the Dothraki horsemen and their malicious "Queen." I eagerly await good news from the much-anticipated naval battle likely to flare up in the Narrow Sea between the Whiteharbor fleets and those of this pretender-queen.

Such as it is, such is it written. May the Seven guide my quill.

Maester Eskines
