The Marble Throne

Session XXVIII - Lordly Dispute

287 5/6/2
Tourney of Raventree has ended. Lord Paramount Walder Frey rides north with his kinsmen and lord Goodbrook as his prisoner. Lord Vance along with his bannerman, lord Smallwood rides south.

Lord Aaron Qorgyle is persuaded by Lord Whent to follow him to King’s Landing. On the road along Cairns they bear witness to atrocities made by lord Mudd and lord Mandrake henchmen, making lord Whent even more resolute in his plans. Lord Aaron Qorgyle hesitates about his choice to back lord Whent and hopes to conclude the issue with Doran Martell personally. Cregan the Veteran makes friends as both parties travel along side to King’s Landing and accidentaly discovers Whent’s plan to pardon former royalists sent to the Wall fronta ser Wylis Wode, bannerman of lord Whent. The path turns suspiciously empty near Harrenhall. Accounts of both first and second hand dragon sightings are heard last days on the road. Dismissed by Lord Whent until confirmed directly by a letter from his source in King’s Landing. Whent’s maester rides to Harrenhal to await instructions of the Citadel. Lord Frey summons by a letter lord Qorgyle to his seat at Twins. Whent proposes to ride for Stokeworth castle, where his old friend, lord Aelys Stokeworth rules for further information about events in King’s Landing. They arrive at dusk to Find castle mostly undefended. Aelys informs Lord Whent and Lord Qorgyle about the return of Viserys and Daenerys from Braavos, managed by Talena Toland and other donnish banermen.

A Story So Far: Part 1 - 281-282AL
From Ironhall to Withermotte

281.6.
Lands ruled for several years by now deceased Ranulf Blackdeere are inherited by his only daughter Caralla Blackdeere. However the succession comes with a great deal of trouble. Many suitors report to the new lady, including those from the house of Lord Walder Frey, liege lord of Blackdeers. In this difficult time Roland Blackwood, seasoned traveller,ex-student of the Citadel and long time voluntary exile is passing around on his way to the North, living off the land and gifts from the smallfolk for his potions and remedies learned at the Citadel.

Roland is suddenly woken up from uneasy dream: A wounded black stag is running through the snow layered woods. He is being pursuited by an unknown force. A raven calls in the background and other ravens join up with the first. The stag is weary and running unto unknown territory, layered by deep footsteps, by the logic of the dream, it is known to Roland that a crone has walked upon this path and she awaits him. Pack of Eagles shouts in the background, their screech as if to evocate death of a kin. Ravens and eagles circle around the hill. Stag is being pursued and falls into an ancient well upon the hilltop. Dreams ends with blue and red, the Night and Sun circling around Roland.

Session log of Session XIX

Session opening time : 286 AL 2. Month, Week of Warrior(3), Day of Crone(4)

Aaron Qorgyle and Quentyn of Lys meet at new Griffin’s Gate in King’s Landing. They discuss the upcoming tourney celebrating first anniversary of capturing the city from Usurper’s army. Word is that the tourney is going to be used for choosing new members to Kingsguard and to patch up uneasy peace among those who favoured King Robert and those who fought for Targaryen restoration in the old war and the new.

It is quickly evident that a lot of effort has been made in restoring the old city since their last visit as the new docks quarter is humming with activity. As they go along the main road to the White Keep, they witness a group of Septons reading Thirty Acts of Most Devout, with unpleasant mention of Aaron Qorgyle as one of the condemned by the Council of Most Devout for his leading part in sacking of High Garden.

Along the way to the castle they meet Lord Commander Gerolt Hightower who gives them leave to enter the White Keep and be housed there for the whole event. Both Hightower and Lord Whent speak clear about their grievances from the lord Protector Doran Martell and urge Aaron Qorgyle to side with them against the Dornish Prince on topics of Golden Company and custody of young king’s family.

Later that day, Quentyn and Aaron are summoned to receive king’s welcome and to offer gifts to His Grace, Aegon VI. Quentyn, sent as an emissary of lord Jaime Lannister offers a lavish gift in form of a golden drague statue, decorated with rubies. Aaron Qorgyle offers a silver goblet, with delicate details of five dragons chasing a game around it’s sides. Among many other nobles is also Lord Dustin, who is being sent in name of lord Stark, offering a large cube of ice. Ceremony end’s up with a feast, where much is debated: presence of the Night’s Watch in King’s Landing, future of the dragons and exhausted state of Riverlands, together with certain rumors about vile powers operating in the heart of the Lord Frey’s lands

After the feast, Lord Qorgyle falls into ugly argument with his wife Tyta about his recently declared apostasy and is aproached by Spider, who reminds the lord of still present threat from Iron Islands and seeks to advice Aaron to choose cautiously between discontended “Small Lords”" and his own allegiance to Doran Martell and cause of Dorne, which as Spider claims, is more than needed to sustain a fragile peace.

Next morning are Aaron and Quentyn summoned to speak privately with Doran Martell about strange nature of events in Riverlands. As is further revealed, the purpose of this meeting is to verify Aaron’s testimony with other notable record – letter from Roland Blackwood to Castle Black written almost two years back. Meeting is after a while abrutly moved to another place, where Aemon Targaryen and Ser Arryn, another unusual hosts, explain another motive of their route south – to personally examine a ruin named Withermotte and to find if any of the elements described by Blackwood’s letter are to be based on truth. Aaron and Quentyn, both intriqued by their own motives offer to join the small detachment of Night’s Watch and are to leave the tourney the very next day.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
