Sigil: The word "Ford" in white on blue background.

Motto: "Built Ford Tough"

Unofficial Motto: "No, it's in the shop again."

Location: Corner of 4th and Aegon Avenue in Kings Landing.

Weapon: Valyrian Steel Wrench called "The Disassembler"

-Back story-

Well about 100 years ago the founder Ser Henry, opened a small cart shop to provide transport for the local Knights when they went on the road. After 3 years of poor sales he finally produced a design that could be afforded by Lords and peasants alike. Since he had the idea over his morning tea, he dubbed it the "T" model. It was a great success and he went on to create other designs shelving the one that had made his fortune. Inexplicably however, any animals set to pull his carts would be able to pull heavier loads but got very poor MPB (Miles Per Bale). Also the animals were strangely prone to breaking down. With the future of House Ford in jeopardy Lord Henry's best designer, Ser Shelby, managed to come out with a small cart with 2 doors and great styling calling it a "Pony Cart." It was well received by the smallfolk and House Ford has remained secure in the cart industry.

Here's another go:

House: House Whent

Sigil: Two Great Swords crossing each other, on a dark blue night sky with the moon in the corner

Motto: We Bend To No Man

Unofficial Motto: No More, No Less

Castle Name: The great castle of Grandeza

Religion: The Old Gods

Blood: Descendants of the First Men (Stark and Greyiron), though rumored some offspring of the first Lord Whent had relations with a CotF.

Location: http://min.us/mbrIifi (Picture is Northwest of Winterfell, Southeast of Bear Island. Check picture)

House Weapon(s): House Whent has two distinct weapons that have been passed down through the generations. They are made of an unknown metal found in a nearby mine, nearly as sharp as Obsidian but as trustworthy as Valyrian Steel. It is said to be stainless as they looks as they did thousands of years ago.

Sworn to: House Whent has sworn fealty to House Stark, but rules its land as if they are kings. House Whent does have subordinate houses spread across the Stony Shore and Wolfswood, and during the War of the Five Kings, House Went sent approximately 1/3 of it's men. The men were very loyal to King Robb, but went North through the Neck with Ser Rodriks force. They split way with Ser Rodrik on the Kingsroad near Winterfell for fresh supplies.

Back Story: House Whent was founded during the Age of Heroes. The couple who founded this noble House were minor siblings of House Stark and House Greyiron. Being younger children (the Stark husband was said to be of close relation to Bran the Builder) they founded their House with full permission from the King in the North. They were allowed to choose a name to their liking, so long as they swore fealty to House Stark. The built their castle, Grandeza, perfectly located on the shore for fishing, near the Wolfswood for timber, and near the mountains for minerals and natural protection. Ramerion Whent, the first of his name, Lord Protector of Grandeza, was said to immediately make peace with the Children of the Forest for reasons still unknown, though there are secrets to the castle (seen later.) Through the years, the Whents have relied on three main industries for wealth: fishing, timber, and natural resources (mountains.) Fishing fed the family and some large, exotic fish are known to be wanted on the markets in Winterfell and White Harbor. The timber provides for many needed uses, such as constructing new buildings or ships (needed both by the Ironmen, the Mormonts, and the Starks. While they continue to sell resources such as copper, iron, silver, gold, and many other metals (such as what the House Swords are made of), they mainly keep to themselves unless they are in need of money, which is usually covered by the former industries. During the golden age of the North, House Whent built many more small castles. The summer house is used for enjoyment, such as Targaryen Summer Hall, and the Safehouse can be compared to the Eyrie, said to be impregnable due to the natural location. No one knows of the safe house, called Sicherheit. Their have been rumors among the various Lords that the CotF helped build a secret, underground tunnel to the castle. They have prospered through the years, and Aegon Tarygaryen didn't even bother making the House bend the knee until the formal procession at King's Landing. Neither the Boltons nor the Ironborn have tried to attack House Whent, and due to the stories they've heard (a nephew of the Lord was a squire near Robb), the Whents have declared a secession from the rule of the Boltons. House Whent has continued relations with the Wall, sending 35 horses, 25 fur coats, metal (for swords), and 3 minor subordinate offspring per year. The House also has great relation with House Reed and the Lord went with Ned and Howland to the ToJ, but was sent away to make sure Robert didn't make a terrible decision. Eddard Stark once said, "Promise me, David...."

What's a plunger?

Little rubber suction cup on the end of a short stick, used to dislodge clogs by compressing and releasing the seal of the cup with a repetitive "plunging" which gives rise to the name.

Mostly used for clogged toilets, but can be used with other clogged plumbing as well.

i thought fan fiction was frowned upon....

anyway, knock yourselves out

I can't imagine that this would be intensely frowned upon, what with the existence of a licensed role-playing game that involves doing almost exactly this...
