    How do I join the MUSH?

    Hopefully there will be Greeters online to help you if you check us out, but we do have extensive helpfiles on the game and the website detailing how to pick out a character and so forth.

    How do I join the MUSH?

    Hello @Sand-Dragon The forums over here are a little bit underused as most of the activity happens on the game itself. So sorry for the late response! We have a guest client at http://www.westeros.org/BoD/Client/index.html where you can visit the game. The most reliable options for long-term players, though, is to download a client such as Gammon MUSHClient, Potato Client, SimpleMU (the former three are good for PC, I believe) and Atlantis (good for Mac) and input the address bod.westeros.org and the port number 3000.

  4. Belaria Buckwell is not the daughter to a house of particular wealth and station -- she is not even the daughter of a lord -- but for quite some time, she has become a lady of note by way of her father Beron's place on the Small Council as Master of Coin. In addition, her aging grandmother, Lady Taria Buckwell, once of House Piper, is an extremely shrewd and influential figure, so beautiful she was once called "the Fair Maid of Pinkmaiden" -- one can only suppose as to how much Belaria has inherited from her. This gives Belaria a position to be a rather interesting character with a station higher than her birth would have her -- has her father procured a great dowry so she might marry high, or is she simply spoiled off some great personal wealth? Is she excellent in stewardship, as the Master of Coin's daughter ought to be -- or does she have another skillset? And, with her father opposing some of pious King Baelor's admittedly less than sensible policies -- how long will her increased station last, and how much will she have to hold her tongue under the regime? Belaria brings a unique power and influence to the table, but one does not have to be MU* experienced to play her. She hasn't been played before, so a prospective player would have to have just read at least one "A Song of Ice and Fire Book", OR have played a MU* before -- but both are advised (but not necessary) for going through the character generation process. Come visit us on the webclient http://www.westeros.org/BoD/Client/index.html -- or download a MUSH client and visit us via bod.westeros.org 3000

    Recruiting: Myles Hightower

    Hey -- I'm really embarrassed to be responding this much later, but Myles has been PCed. I know I should be spending a lot more time on the forums, but generally, the best way to contact us is to log on to the game itself.

    New MUSH'er. Squire looking for rp

    Hi Eddyn! I'm so glad to have you on board!
  10. A young lady from House Costayne -- a banner house of the Hightowers of Oldtown, Mesella has been groomed for court. As a young child, she was betrothed to Ormory Rosby, and as a future Crownlands lady, her mother saw it fit to bring her to court. Over the years, Mesella has made advantage of her Mooton relations at Maidenpool, and she even travelled to Riverrun some years ago for the Tully wedding. Though even a lady as herself cannot avoid scandal, or rather, the scandal of her betrothed's house: a string of murders some years past were revealed to have been committed by Ormory's uncle Quenton. However, make no mistake: Mesella is still a very good choice for a player who wants a character who has been long-established at court, and has a suitable betrothal. Additionally, she now has a proper court position, as lady-in-waiting to Rylla Hightower -- her Tyrell-born cousin, as arranged by her aunt Annet, the mother of the young Lord Tyrell, and thus an immediate connection to other PCs is guaranteed! Also, her betrothed Ormory is currently in play, though it should be noted that he remains in Dorne as a squire to Lord Connington, a member of the Iron Throne's embassy to Sunspear. Mesella is Open, meaning a player needs to either have MU* experience or have read at least one book in the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series. She is also un-CG'ed, meaning that a player will have to commit to the CG process that will decide her stats, skills, history, and persona.
  11. Ser Myles Hightower is well-respected among the court as a companion of Prince Aegon Targaryen. Born a bastard as Myles Flowers, he was legitimised upon the wedding of his parents, Lord Lyonel Hightower and Lady Samantha Tarly. Though he is the youngest of their three sons, he is his the favourite, and has been granted lands with his own income, a lucrative court position, and a splendid betrothal to the Lord of Highgarden's eldest sister: Lady Rylla Tyrell. Myles has been a character in play before, and has a well-established history that is easy to jump into. Additionally, roleplay is very easy to find as he is to wed Rylla Tyrell within the month, and many events are being held beforehand. He also has quite a few active PCs as relatives, including his betrothed Rylla Tyrell, his sister Melarra Connington, his nephew Malwyn Hightower, and his good-brother Victor Reyne. If you want guaranteed roleplay and a character that is easy to step in to, you should definitely pick Myles.

    Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    Yeah, the "Women on Top" message somehow becomes more poignant (in regard to how anti-feminist it actually is) when, weirdly, all the canon ruling ladies seem to be gone. Since the DVD bonus material seems to be written by booksnobs (or semi-booksnobs, apparently there was a weird video where they claimed that the Starks were sworn to the Ryswells at one point), and, like, nobody watches them except people who are quite into the series, a casual viewer can watch the Sand Fakes' coup and come away with the impression that the only way women *can* get power in Dorne is to commit regicide/kinslaying and stage a coup (I wonder what "Lord Blackmont" thinks of Princess Faullaria though). We can't have an elderly, widowed Lady Oakheart in Renly's retinue (though, budget, whatever,) or a little Lady Alysanne Bulwer in Margaery's retinue. The only way Reach ladies can gain power is through sex (/statutory rape), except if you're an old lady, in which case, you gain control of Highgarden through sassiness.. or maybe Olenna has such a good reputation as a rude negotiator they chose to have her over her daughters or Garth the Gross? In the north, we can't have a Lady Flint casually mentioned, and let's just scrap the Cerwyns, the Manderly granddaughters, and Alys (though according to the leaks Alys may exist)? Like, sure, maybe you could cut down some plots and characters, but as you often say Chebs, it's the pattern that matters, and these microcosms matter. Otherwise you have Lyanna who exists so her age and gender can be comedic. I can't even figure out what the weird implications are of her pretending Sansa of the many personalities exist (though I'm looking forward to your meta about that in a few months). In regard to the season 7 leaks, it's really confusing what the message will be. So Yara and Ellaria are "bad" women and will get punished? Seems strange if they acknowledge the implications of Yara in Volantis, but IIRC only Ellaria and Tyene get sexually humiliated. So... D&D are reading the Walk as superficially as possible? Like, we felt for Carol, but... she's Carol. I seriously think we'll be supposed to revel in the humiliation of these murderers, and that we won't feel that no matter how bad someone's crimes are, they shouldn't be punished in a specifically gendered way... or maybe it'll show how EVHUL Euron is because he's worse than the fakes? (Though anyone who believes in Euron being as sinister as he appears to be in the books is kidding themselves). And then there's the weird Cersei/Dany rivalry... I guess it's supposed to be an empowering battle where the two leaders are both women, but the Madonna/Whore imagery is just too apparent.
  14. I think from a character perspective, it makes much more sense for Sansa to be the one to be directly complicit in Littlefinger's downfall. Littlefinger isn't even on Arya's list - in fact, I don't even think she knows about his role in the AGOT coup. Sansa, on the other hand, is tied to LF from the start of the novels - right from AGOT she notices that his eyes and smile do not match. And then he continues to be instrumental in her story: helping her flee King's Landing, and essentially taking him on as his protegee who doubles as a substitute for his desire for Catelyn. She's going to be geographically closest to him in the next novels, she's the one who's been the most dependent on him the whole time - it just makes the most sense. Even if Arya learned of all that LF did, IMO the payoff still wouldn't be as great because she wouldn't have forged an important connection to him across the novels. Now, of course, ASOIAF is great in building up prophecies that can be subverted and changed. But "later I dreamt that maid again" ... again is simply too explicit in my opinion, it just has to be the same woman, who is clearly Sansa because of the purple serpents. To be honest I'm not 100% about that prophecy line, but the two questions to me have always been who the giant is (Petyr or Gregor) and where the castle is (Harrenhal or Winterfell). To me the maid is Sansa, no question. And while she does see Arya's true nature (and/or what will become of her) she could definitely see that separately. Also I don't think there's the same opportunity for narrative irony like the YMBQ prophecy because Arya had no idea who the maid with purple serpents in her hair was, and never thinks on the prophecy.

    INFO: Feedback Thread

    I'm really new, but fixed times for roleplay sounds fun. I haven't RP'd with anyone yet and Dorne especially seems rather empty, so fixed events would be a great way to meet other players. My timezone is GMT but I know that not everyone's is, so perhaps it would be good in the afternoons, about 17:00 game time - especially on Friday nights and weekends.
