Recruiting: Play a Celtigar!

Posted (edited)

Looking for a character with lots of direct ties to the Crownlands and Dragonstone? What about a house of sailors who AREN'T worshippers of Cthulhu? Interested in helping a relatively minor house grow? Play a Celtigar! 

There's not a whole lot that's known about House Celtigar. They are the lords of Claw Isle, a small island off the coast of Crackclaw Point. Like their cousins of House Velaryon, they are said to have the blood of Old Valyria in their veins. Lead by Lord Clement Celtigar, son of the Bartimos Celtigar that served on Queen Rhaenyra's Black Council, this house has lots of characters ready for playing, both CG'd and not. See Ashera Celtigar with any questions. 

Amrell Celtigar (CG'd, Open): The heir to Claw Isle, Lord Amrell has always been more comfortable maneuvering politically than on the field of battle. Lord Amrell is an incredibly intelligent man-- and he likes people to know it. Fiercely ambitious, he is much happier at the court of King's Landing than overseeing his comparatively quieter home. Furthermore, Ashera, Amrell's only child from his tragic first marriage, has recently come to live with him at court. Will father and daughter become a force to be reckoned with? Or will their own ambitions only serve to drive them apart? 

Parena Celtigar (Open, Not CG'd): Second wife of lord Amrell Celtigar, and mother to three of his children. A Marbrand by birth, Parena and Amrell were married less than a year after the death of Amrell's beloved first wife, Elona. It was an obvious marriage of convenience, but Parena was nonetheless able to bear Amrell lots of healthy children. They have, at the very least, grown fond of each other over the years. But does Parena have any lingering resentment over being such a hasty replacement? What feelings does she hold towards Amrell's awkward eldest daughter, who Parena has known since her infancy? How does she feel about her husband's obvious preference for King's Landing, rather than at her side at Claw Isle? Would that be enough to send her to the capital? 

Amyana Staunton (Open, CG'd): Eldest daughter of Lord Clement, Amyana was willful and wild as a child, though she has learned to tame these feelings over the years. Amyana lost a beloved husband of House Waxley to the fighting in Dorne, and has since remarried. While her second marriage is by no means unhappy, it does lack the love and intimacy of her first marriage. Though Amyana is no longer a part of the Celtigar household, she was very close to her brother Amrell, and has undoubtedly retained connections to her family. 

Morland Celtigar (Open, Not CG'd): Second son and third child of Clement Celtigar, Morland captains a ship known as the Red Claw, named as homage to his family's crest. While his relationship with his siblings is friendly, Morland is not particularly close to any of them. He is married to Lady Syrella of House Darry, and their union has produced a son, Banfrey. 

Oreyne Celtigar (Open, Not CG'd): The fourthborn child of Clement Celtigar, Oreyne is said to have a somewhat antagonistic relationship with her siblings. Perhaps it is simply the result of being a middle child, or perhaps it is the mark of naturally shrewish behavior. Oreyne is seven-and-twenty and still unmarried, which might be a cause of anxiety for both her and her father. Would the hunt for a husband send Oreyne to King's Landing? Or maybe Oreyne is perfectly happy on her own, and has come to the capital to escape her father's nagging? 

Wynton Celtigar (Open, CG'd): Wynton grew up in the shadow of his elder brothers, but unlike some, this only drove him to do everything he could to succeed in life. Wynton witnessed the horrors of the conflict of Dorne firsthand, losing his master to a Dornish arrow. Knighted at Plankytown, Ser Wynton does well in upholding the tenents of knighthood. He is kind and polite, and just as comfortable with a sword or lance as he is with a tome of history. His one downfall, it seems, is a total and complete inability to carry a tune. He is married to Lady Roncianne Rosby, though as of yet their marriage has not produced any children. 

Elleria Celtigar (Open, CG'd): The youngest child of Clement Celtigar, Elleria is tall and charming, if not rather aloof. A bit of an odd duck, Elleria much prefers the company of books to people, though she is able to play this off as maidenly shyness. Like her sister Oreyne, Elleria is still unwed, though her age is not yet so advanced that she might cause her family worry. Nonetheless, it is quite possible that Elleria would be sent to King's Landing to make connections and find a husband. She is no stranger to court, after all, and has friends and acquaintances she might revisit. Colianne Rosby (Open, not CG'd): Eldest sister of lord Clement Celtigar, Lady Colianne is now the Dowager Lady of Rosby. While her eldest son, Whalon, is in charge of running the household, Lady Colianne surely has no shortage of pull. Older ladies are rare amongst players, but Colianne could bring a considerable amount of influence to the table, both for House Celtigar and House Rosby alike. 

Rolland Celtigar (Open, not CG'd): Brother to Lord Clement, Ser Rolland is a widowed lord and many children. While he is advanced in years, Ser Rolland could easily serve as a mentor figure for young knights and squires hoping to make a name for themselves, or perhaps he might try and secure advantageous matches for his unmarried children and grandchildren. 

Tasmund Celtigar (Open, CG'd): The eldest son of Ser Rolland, Tasmund has long struggled to be noticed. As a youth, he seemed to fail at nearly everything he tried his hand at, and his father could never be pleased. As an adult, he still struggles to stand out, though he has managed to find some recognition as an officer of the City Watch. A lifetime of mediocrity has taken its toll on Tasmund's self esteem, and a sailing accident left him with a fear of the ocean-- an oddity, considering he comes from a seafaring house. Even so, Tasmund is in a good place to finally make a name for himself. He and his wife, Dorea, would be familiar with King's Landing, given Tasmund's work, and as a member of the City Watch, Tasmund would have lots of interesting opportunities for roleplay. 

Aloran Celtigar (Restricted, Not CG'd): Known as "Crackclaw," Aloran no doubt has an interesting history behind his byname. The second son of Ser Rolland, Ser Aloran is a knight, currently in search of a household to serve. King's Landing is an excellent place for him to continue that search. 

Jenette Hayford (Open, CG'd): Eldest daughter of Ser Rolland, Lady Jenette is wickedly intelligent, and there are swords that do not cut as deep as her tongue. She is known as a terrible shrew, and always seems to have a biting remark at the ready... Except when it comes to her elder brother, Tasmund. Despite her wild and sullen behavior, Lady Jenette has managed to turn out alright, with a decent marriage and a young son. Her reasons to coming to King's Landing would be no one's but her own... Likely having something to do with their library, if one were to guess. 

Jarella Celtigar (Open, Not CG'd): Ser Rolland's youngest daughter, Lady Jarella is notably more mild than her sister. Hopefully Ser Rolland will have an easier time finding a husband for this daughter, though she is getting old enough that Ser Rolland might worry. Nonetheless, Lady Jarella is a good age to come to King's Landing, hopefully making a name for herself as well as finding a prospective match. 

Edmyn Celtigar (Open, Not CG'd): Ser Rolland's youngest son, Edmyn is still a squire, currently serving under his brother Aloran. Edmyn is of a good age to earn his spurs, but he will have to work hard to sufficiently impress the Crackclaw. Being so far out of the way in inheritance, and coming after so many impressive brothers and cousins, Edmyn has grown up in the shadows of many. How will he deal with this? Perhaps it is time for the young squire to visit King's Landing, and make a name for himself. 

Semella Celtigar (Restricted, Not CG'd): The younger sister of Lord Clement Celtigar, Semella was only twenty years old when she gave birth to her son, Malion. This caused no shortage of scandal, as Semella was unwed, and the lady was swiftly disowned... Ordinarily this would be the end of Semella's story, but the disgraced lady was not content to let it be so. Semella made her way in life as a singer, and managed to gain a not insignificant amount of fame from her craft, becoming known as "Seaspray." She might come to King's Landing looking for work, though in a court as conservative as Baelor's, a scandalous woman such as Semella would have to tread lightly. Perhaps it is time for her to finally reconnect with her long-estranged family? 

Malion Waters (Restricted, Not CG'd): The bastard son of Semella Celtigar, Malion has inherited his mother's talent for music, and is making a name for himself in the field. King's Landing is a city of opportunity for an up-and-coming singer, and he might have an easier time finding a place in the capital than his mother might. Maybe Malion might finally make contact with the noble family he never knew, or maybe he will shun the Celtigars altogether, instead chosing to make a name on his merits alone.

Hi Goonch! The forums are a bit inactive, but I implore you to join the game itself, where Greeters, Staff, and Admins should be able to answer your questions. http://client.pennmush.org/guest/bloodofdragons Is a way to access the game from a web-browser, and you can see the MUSH clients we recommend here: http://www.westeros.org/BoD/FAQ/Entry/How_do_I_connect_to_the_MUSH .

 http://www.westeros.org/BoD/FAQ/ is also a great resource, and you can simply post any questions you have on the forums here (though again, they are inactive, so it might take a while to respond).
