    You wait several hours and the sun finally sets, and you go out to the watch barracks and wait there with Kelor when you hear someone enter

    That's fine. Our castellan is either truly loyal or a truly devoted mole. Either way, we have no reason to not trust him implicitly.
    If Red Belly is indeed his brother, that works to our advantage.

    Let's sit him down, offer some mead and sausage, and break the ice by sharing stories about how fucking awful a human being our father was.
    After that we can slowly broach the subject of exactly why he's an outlaw, and how we can work together to make everyone happy.

    Skylar was confused. Things weren't adding up, so he said to his new Castellen, "Kalor why did you not tell me Red Belly was your brother."

    After hearing Kalor's answer, Skylar would say to Red Belly, "Welcome, I'd like to talk to you about the current state of our lands. If you can finish off the other bandits, then I will pay you and you can keep whatever you find from the raided enemy bandits. What do you say?"

    (Bertrand has a Core of 20 Elite Marksmen he uses to hunt bandits with)

    You hear some yelling coming from outside the keep, when you go to investigate it your guards are holding back a old widow.


    "Let her go this minute!" you roar at the guards who release her and look quite sheepish that it took four of them to restrain an old lady.

    She straightens her blouse out and raps the nearest guards knuckles with her walking stick "young ones these days don't know nothing bout respect." and hobbles towards you.

    "My liege" she informs as she walks by you "can you light up a fire to warm these old bones and wrangle up some of your wifes sausages i can smell them from here. and then i'll point you in the right direction of the murderer."

    as you stoke the fire back up, one of your serving girls brings her a plate of sausages which she attacks with a gusto and after finishing it she finally talks "Its was the Freys" she burps out " Walder wants to swarm you with his sons and merge your house into his."

    "how do you know this?" you reply suspiciously

    "a old woman's knitting circle is like a web of a spider, so many rumors and interesting tid bits fall into it. but i must digress, this is all i know, you may find out more in Frey's Castle."

    "But...how do they even know of us?"

    "You're one of the vassals of Ned, Walder met-" she burps "sorry Walder met your father during Ned and Caitlyn's wedding and saw your lands, and must have decided he wants them simple as that."

    It's ok OP you did good.

    While this is simply a rumor, we should take it into account. But for now, we must carry on. While our bandits find other bandits, we must focus on improving the region. Start clearing off sections of forest to be cut down. Then start making a furnishing buiessness. Actually, we could build ships, and sell them to the Greyjoys....

    That's for debate. Just cut down the trees for now.

    we can't hand out fucking dragons like candy.
    We're not the Lannisters.
    Give the smallfolk a couple stags. Smallfolk love stags.
    It's a ton to them.

    Here's a Fun fact for you:
    In Westeros, people hate base 10 for some fucking reason.
    A Dragon (gold) is worth 210 Stags (silver) a Stag is worth 56 pennies (Copper).
    Hence, a Dragon is worth 11,760 pennies.
    A large loaf of bread or a dozen eggs is worth 1penny, at most. A healthy chicken is worth about 4 pennies.
    A milk cow can be had for under 10 Stags.
    The yearly income of a smallfolk is 30-stags or less.
    1 dragon is 7 years income for a healthy, skilled male.
    "A few Dragons" is likely as much money as someone could reasonably earn in a lifetime.
    tl;dr Don't give out dragons to every old woman who comes spitting shit at us, or everyone will.

    "Dearest Father,

    When word gets out that we planted Southern fruit IN THE FUCKING NORTH, people are gonna know who the fuck we are.

    Alright, we need to fucking pace ourselves though.
    Lets not get our shit all stormed up.
    We've got some trees that'll get a year or two of fruits before winter hits.
    We've got a good deal with the White Harbor port manager.
    We've got a prospective Marriage lined up for Edyth.
    This is all good.
    But it'll take a little time to ripen.
    Lets finish fixing up our Bandit problem (or they'll steal all our fucking oranges) and get the Iron mine/Mill working nice n' full.
    No point in all the Trade negotiations if we have nothing to trade...

    You are having breakfest with your family still here when bertrand walks in with a group of twenty bandits led by chains, he yanks on the cord and they stumble into the floor, Dina gasps in astonishment, and gets a glare from your wife who mutters something about "a waste of chain."

    "M'lord these twenty value their life too much and wish to be sent to the wall." he spits at the nearest one

    "Very well, take them to the dungeons, then report to maester herla he will pay you the twenty dragons for your service." you wave him off and continue eating

    the bandit problem is slowly growing less rampant, could there be a time where theres no such thing as bandits in this area?
    >> Retired Dice Roller 10/05/11(Wed)03:03 No.16526609

    Excellent, having twenty men take up the Black will make Ned that much happier with us.

    What say you, gentlemen? Shall we continue this campaign against the bandits? Or are there other issues we should be focusing our attention upon?
    >> Anonymous 10/05/11(Wed)03:04 No.16526614
    Has someone suggested developing pike and crossbow battle methodology ala the Swiss and Italians in the late medieval / early modern period?

    Because running an infantry based rape machine through all these cushy feudal baronies will fuck their shit up. And this primarily depends on land bearing capacity (population density). Which a long summer supports.

    Also, obviously, enclosure.

    The lead time on producing a professional army of 3x 3000 men in tercios is at least 5 years.


    We ought to at least be working on cadreisation of lower officers, training crossbowmen and stockpiling pikes.

    In summer prepare for winter, in peace prepare for war.

    Lone Master is correct. The Tercio is a late medieval development that relies on a combination of pike and ranged in a large self-supporting formation that is capable of mutual support with other like formations.

    It developed out of the professional armies of the Swiss and Italians, forced by the Italian wars (think the Free Cities of Bravos much?).

    You'd need to develop a professional cadre, much like the training of an individualistic feudal warrior, but with emphasis on human command, logistics, and unit tactics. You'd need to develop the production of House controlled weapons stockpiles (expensive). You'd need to develop professional crossbow men (guns were easy to use, crossbows, less so).

    Then you'd need a wave of enclosures to force men off the land and into your Tercios.

    It is do-able, but requires some sixes, forethought, and exposure to the Bravosi's professional companies.
