Hello, everyone. Hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes by posting a link to my own RPG. It hasn't officially started yet, as I only have six confirmed players thus far. Anyway, let me tell you a little bit about it.
It is text based, on an ezboard, and is not battle based, but rather focuses more on the political intrigues and House loyalties, etc.
It is set seventeen years before the opening of A Game of Thrones, and one year before the tourney at Harrenhal at which Rhaegar crowns Lyanna as the Queen of Love and Beauty, and Jaimie is elevated to the Kingsguard. Mad King Aerys has thrown a tourney at King's Landing to celebrate reports from the Citadel of gradually lengthening days which could signal the beginning of the end of winter. The cold of the South is not as harsh and bleak as the North, and the snow on the ground does not keep all of the Seven Kingdoms from traveling to King's Landing in the hopes of winning fame, glory, and riches untold.
You may have a canon(book) character, or invent your own. Keep in mind the age your character would have been back then. IE. Sansa was not born yet, so she can obviously not be played.
Applications can be found here : www.geocities.com/winter_roses_rpg and the actual game board will be located at pub84.ezboard.com/bwinterroses , although the board still requires a bit more work.
The only taken characters thus far are Rhaegar, King Aerys, Varys, Jaime, and Cersei. Everyone else is fair game.
Thanks for your time!
