    >Playing Song of Ice and Fire

    Your lands are located in the North

    You have moderate Defense, average Influence, a fuckton of Lands, shitty Law, average population, shitty Power, and shitty Wealth.

    Your House was founded after Aegon's Conquest, during a period of rapid infrastructure growth. The last lord of your household was a madman, who won a great victory at the expense of much wealth and influence.

    Your holdings are:
    Mountains with a river and Ruins, adjacent to the coast, lightly forested.
    Hills with a stream, small village, a Hall, and an iron mine, heavily forested
    Plains, heavily forested

    You have one unit of Veteran Archers and two units of Trained Garrison stationed in your Hall.

    It is cold and wet, bandits are fucking everywhere, you control way more land than you can reasonably hold with your meager forces, you have very little money, and to top it all off your Liege Lord thinks you are a dick.

    wat do /tg/?

    Here's a present for you OP. I tried this a while ago, but there was no interest. Best of luck to you though!

    Anyway, two things. First, if our liege lord (I'm assuming Ned Stark) thinks we're a dick, we probably done fucked up somewhere along the line. Repairing that relationship should be a priority.

    After that, what >>16511768 said. What sisters/daughters do we have to marry off to power? With a fuckton of lands, we have a lot to offer in potential farmland or anything else, in exchange for some cash and a seat at the grown-ups' table.

    Why would the Tyrells want to marry into some fly speck House in the middle of nowhere? The best you could hope for would probably be marrying some unimportant son of one of the more prominent Stark Bannermen, or perhaps from the Vale or Riverlands.

    Daughter's age:

    Your first son is a pretty cool guy. He is a fair hand at swordplay, and has a silver tongue

    Okay, new plan.

    First order: Command the servants to sew me a suit entirely of human skins. Make sure Ramsay donates generously.
    Next, find out where and when the next major wedding will be in King's Landing and get ready to turn fashion on its head.
    Worst case scenario, we get a proper war going to revitalize our coffers with ransoms.
    Best case scenario, we found a lucrative new line of business for our leatherworkers.

    Okay, so, I recommend introducing our second son to Loras Tyrell, down south,
    Our third son is a bit old for it, but we should try and get him squired somewhere nice to improve our relationships, mend bridges. Maybe the Karstarks or the Umbers.

    Important question: Why is our 20-year-old daughter unmarried? You said she's attractive... what the fuck is wrong with her that she's single at 20? Let's fix it and hitch her to someone slightly better off than us.

    No, I don't know of anything in the future. I am not crying at that thought.

    Say, based on our proximity to White Harbor, we would be fools not to offer some of our lands to the Manderlys. They're fat and wealthy, but most of their land is developed.
    Maybe we could send them a raven offering the sale of a large chunk of farmland (the lightly forested plains mentioned earlier) in exchange for gold and some soldiers or miners.
    We could try to seal the partnership by betrothing our younger daughter, Dina. Does Wendel have any sons in that age range?

    He is also to give him a map of our intended route through the wood, which will be lined on that day with our best archers, as well as any surviving bandits who want to earn their freedom.

    If all goes well, Cliin will assault us, fall into our trap, and we'll present him and his men to Lord Stark the following week as aggressors and traitors to the peace of the realm.

    Maesters are the ones who send and tend ravens, heal the sick and injured, educate the noble children, etc.

    I named him, I'll describe him.

    Skylar Strongcock is a crafty man, tall and skinny, and pushing 40. His father was cruel and died old, but Skylar is determined to improve the family name and restore the House's honor.
    However, due to their small lands and the size of the men under his command, Skylar is an avid reader of military history and tactics, and often practices war games with his men and miniature armies.
    He prefers stealth and trickery to chivalrous combat when possible, in order to turn the numbers to his advantage.
    His high forehead is split by a rough widow's peak, his long dark hair thinning at the crown of his head, but draping down to his shoulders in the back. He wears a close-cropped beard, now salt-and-pepper. Though no Mountain, he's got a wiry strength, and fights with a shield and bastard sword.

    Lord Skylar is tall but somewhat lanky. In battle, he prefers the lance and the joust over the sword and the melee.
    Skylar views physical violence as a means to an end rather than an end unto itself, but he's perfectly willing to get shit done when it needs to.
    He enjoys falconry and hunting. Lord Skylar is also something of an amateur cartographer, and collects as many maps and geography books as he can afford. He thinks that to know the land is to know the people.

    Two of your Guard rush out and grab the "bag and bring it back inside towards you, as it nears you you can hear groaning coming from it. opening it up you see Kelors body with a note on it that says

    "if you're going to buy out people, at least do it with money"

    looking up you notice a small object falling towards you...actually hundreds of small objects...

    "Criins! You bastard!" Skylar yelled from his position. His mind was already thinking of all the things that could be in that bag, none of them good. Skylar ordered a man to fetch the bloodied bag. His thoughts went wild why he waited for one of his men to pick up the bag.

    Sklyar knew one thing though, if he fell today, then Criins could lie to Stark and slander the name of Strongcock for all of history. He, could, not, let, that, happen.

    Command our archers to target the horses first, specifically those under Criin's honor guard. Shoot to wound, not to kill. A live horse, wounded and panicked, will help us plenty.

    In the meantime, we should be getting to some kind of cover from the arrows. And have our men keep the gate sealed.

    And don't bother sniping the footmen OR the riders. Go for horses, who can whip up a nice panic amidst the enemy's ranks.

    Watching from your vantage point several of the arrows strike true one hits a horse in the eye causing it to panic and kick several of the bandits behind it before being brough down by its rider in all the damage seemed to take out no more then a handful of enemy men unpreturbed by this, several of the bandits near the back start rushing forward with ladders intent on climbing the walls

As the ladders reach your wall, Men start to lash rope to the ladders and start pulling them up men still attached, slowly your troops pull up all the ladders killing the bandits on them, and the ones trying to flee back to the lines.

    You see several of the bandits in the rear of the army start to slink away after seeing that

    Heavily forested areas can be cut away with logging expeditions that can reduce places where bandits can seek refuge. The wood can be used to produce furniture for export as well as materials for housing and fortification as needed. Also barrels and booze.

    Skylar Strongcock is a crafty man, tall and skinny, and pushing 40. His father was cruel and died old, but Skylar is determined to improve the family name and restore the House's honor.
    However, due to their small lands and the size of the men under his command, Skylar is an avid reader of military history and tactics, and often practices war games with his men and miniature armies.
    He prefers stealth and trickery to chivalrous combat when possible, in order to turn the numbers to his advantage.
    His high forehead is split by a rough widow's peak, his long dark hair thinning at the crown of his head, but draping down to his shoulders in the back. He wears a close-cropped beard, now salt-and-pepper. Though no Mountain, he's got a wiry strength, and fights with a shield and bastard sword.

    Lady Karyn is quite short, as is typical of the Iron Men, perhaps a full 5' on a good day. She has a long, flat nose and rather plain features. She has the Black eyes and hair typical of the Greyjoys, but he hair has begun to grey with age. She is fiercely stubborn, and "Ill mannered" not having the luxury of being raised to know the "Greenlander" etiquette. Despite this, she is a skilled verbal combatant, and far less useless than most noble ladies should push come to shove.
