WANTED: House Suggestions
Posted 07 June 2012 - 05:25 AM
Some caveats first, however.
We're not adding more houses from the North or the Iron Isles.
Dornish houses will be added, but we can't say which we can manage. It is hugely complex to make realistic family trees with so few houses available, they all end up cousins or closer!
Some suggestions we may have to pass on because of details we have from GRRM that we cannot reveal yet and some we may pass on because we know too little about where the house is located, their relative importance, etc.
But, if you have some you'd like to see, don't hesitate to make the suggestion and we'll see what we can do. If you really like the idea of one of the houses we've already considered, please make sure to say so too.
If you are suggesting a house/liking one of our suggestions because you have an interest in playing a character from said house, you may also add one suggestion for a character in said house. By that we mean saying things like. "I'd like to see a 22-year-old knight who is a second son and who is unmarried." Just the basic familial situation. We can't guarantee anything, but we can try to work such things in. No names, please.

I'm glad to see Royce added! Love that house.. would gladly holiday away from Urston for a while in summer for that.
Purely for amusement value, would be nice to see House Tollett around.
I also recommend you make one 'Lady [House here]' or 'The heir to ____' unmarried, so that someone can have the RP hook of being a heavily desired match in a house with a 'clean slate'. Most of the houses there already have the cool chars outlined with not a lot of breathing room due to previous players' decisions, or having their minds made. Heck, a 20-something unmarried lord would fill that gap nicely!
Er, thats more than one char suggestion I suppose, but it's really just the one premise I suggested multiple routes for, so I'll chance it

Exploring other cadet branches of houses could also be interesting like the Lannisters of Lannisport.
On a completely unrelated note, seeing the Royces in play would be cool. They are one of my favorite houses and an influential house in the Vale to boot. Before I knew of their non-existence, they were one of my top choices for possible Houses to pick at PC from.

I also recommend the Fossoways, Tarbecks, and
I would also like to request an 18-25 year old Royce, the daughter of the Lord of Runestone, who is unmarried.

Redwyne -- probably prevented by some details we can't reveal yet
Cadet branches -- prevented by a lack of house arms

We have Selmy and Blackwood, and can probably expand them. Osgrey we haven't got but one.

And House Mormont.
It might be interesting to have a tier-II or tier-III female Lothston, or Mormont, who defies some of the feminine conventions, e.g. wears armor and leads men into battle, like Danelle or Dacey. I really believe there should be more than one gender role defying woman at court in King's Landing: someone other than Daena.
