It's amazing when you play this you begin to understand some characters like Roose Bolton, who didn't hesitate to betray his liege lord to have more power, influence and prestige.
Also it's incredibly fun and weird to see the paths of Cersei, Tyrion, Asha and others. In my game Jaime died early so Cersei married Daven Lannister. I laughed so hard. Victarion married Asha. And other stuff like that.
I'm planning to play a huge long multiplayer game on this mod during the Christmas vacation, it will be great.

Stannis was made the Lord Paramount of the Stormlands after the war and while Robert was fathering bastards with his wife, Renly usurped the title from Stannis not long after he came of age with the support of every Stormland vassal.
Stannis spent the rest of his days in King's Landing without so much as an honorary title to his name and eventually died of depression leaving behind no children.
Robert ended up legitimizing his youngest bastard son, and to the suprise of nobody, there was a succession crisis on his death.
Those crazy Baratheon boys.

In most kingdoms the dynasties were always changing. The Lannisters, the Hoares, the Greyjoys (after taking from the Hoares, losing it to the Goodbrothers), the Durrendon, they all lost their thrones. The Boltons and the Gardeners were the only ones who kept their thrones, although the Reach belonged to a lesser family during a few decades, but the Gardeners took it back.
I lost the throne once, but to my own dynasty, to another Bolton. My asshole hand of the king told me all my six children were bastards and spread the word about them. Then, once my heir, a suspected bastard, inherited the throne, someone started a war to put some cousin of mine in the throne, with the support of most northern lord. I lost, but at least I kept the Dreadfort. I tried to take it back twice, but I failed. The first character who tried ended up on the Wall, but the second one won a trial by combat and was forgiven.
A few years later, I ordered a faceless man to kill the king, as his heir was only a baby. I had inherited the Rills through marriage so I was in better position then, so I took advantage and declared war for the throne for the third time and won. After 68 years without the throne I took it back.
But now my reign is a mess. There were several rebelions and a lot of regions were independent now. The Gardeners almost put a bastard of their in the throne of the North (it was I who stopped then, even when I despised the king). The previous kings were pretty weak, so they left me with a broken kingdom. My first character after the reconquest was killed by a faceless man, and now my heir, who is not only a child, but also a suspected bastard, inherited the throne, and pretty much everyone rebelled. The Gardeners once again tried to put that bastard of theirs in my throne, but thank the Old Gods for mercenaries. Good thing I was rich, so in the end I won all those wars while still a child. That's where I've stopped playing yesterday. Now I have to reunite the kingdom of the North and defend against the Iron Throne, that has just been created by the Gardeners, who will eventually attack again to annex my kingdom to the Iron Throne.

Cersei had a daughter by Lancel, Joanna, and Daeron was struck by her beauty. They had eight children, Deagons with hair of gold and eyes of dragon lords. Although Cersei never had Rhaegar, her daughter had his nephew.
Tyrion lives on, surviving Daeron, Cersei and even little Queen Joanna. Daeron IV had a bastard with his older sister, the bastard child of Tywins daughter by Jeyne Weaterlimg. Martyn's claim has been taken up by Tyrion however, against that of his true born brother Daeron (great grandson of Daenerys). And both have dragons.

Ended up starting as a "designed Ruler" that was head of Oldtown. Married Margaery Tyrell (whom was later put forward on a claim for the Reach), my heir ended up marrying Princess Rhaella Targaryen. Was on very good relations with the Martells & Tyrells until a King Aemon Targaryen ended up claiming just about every Lord-Paramount position for himself, faced widespread rebellion (my then son was on the Kingsguard, led one of my armies regardless) & made different families the Lord Paramounts. Got very messy after that. I ended up naming the 4 Lord of my family Tywin and try make him as close to his namesake as possible, he was tutored (& squired) under the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, married the daughter of the Lord Paramount of the Vale, proceeded to claim The Arbor as his own and after putting down a rebellion by Lord Cuy claiming his land too. Very nearly became Lord of the Reach during a civil war in the Reach, but the King got in my way again. In hindsight I should have pushed regardless of the threats of treason and asked for peace if the King declared war on me.
