And our eight player is known! And it couldn't be a more suitable player to play the sea loving clan of Greyjoy...our very own whale hunting Norwegian...Mullog!

There's a problem with updating the player stats, which will (hopefully) be fixed this week, so the game page still says Hannibal, but you should all send your 12 page nap proposals to Mullog instead. :D

Have a great game Mullog and thanks for jumping in!

I wish I had more time to study the forums in greater depth then I wouldn't of missed this little gem until now :cry: ...

Good Luck all I shall follow your progress intently and no that doesn't mean I'm camping at the bottom of my garden.

Who is Lord Galen Stark, Warden of the North?

Hryllantre, there will be a second Westeros game based on the northern part of the map after this one ends. So you can have first dibs on that one, if you want.

Welcome to Lord Mullog, the new head of House Greyjoy.

We at House Martell wish you all the success you would wish yourself.

Let us hope that your rebellion has calmed things and that those within Greyjoy loyal to the old Lord Hannibal have been silenced. We shall watch with interest as your story unfurls.
Now WHY did it do THAT!

If at first you don't succeed - give up and have a coffee!

That's me. I don't think 'Lord TBert' has a very good ring to it. It also appears that Nicholas and Lord Galen are the only two people in Westeros with a sense of humor 8)

Replacing the late Lord Hannibal was unfortunate but necessary. To ease the pain his family and allies are being taken care of as well... I therefore decided to take upon me the heavy burden it is to fight for the kingship.

I wish you all good luck in the upcoming fight - and promise to be a fair ruler after the dispute is settled.

Just Flippin GREAT! I think I went and did all of my diplomacy based on the map, and not the turn report. I don't start in province 50, I start in province 13. Just flipping great. If I have contacted you about a nap, and you were wondering what the hell I was thinking, then I guess the answer is, I wasn't. dangnabbit, back to the drawing board....... :oops:

Cal

I think if you check around page 2 of this thread (ish) you will find reference to the turn report not matching up. You are in province as shown on map and should plan and order accordingly. It was as a result of the manual placing done by Sal.

He assures we aill be running T1 as per map locations (Ihope).

Breathe easy.

You should see my diplomacy. If ne more person addresses me as Lord then they will be facing the wrong end of a very blunt and rusty knife in the groinal area.

As i promised Mullog the turn has been extend a little to give him enough time to get all his diplomacy in to place. So the sooner you all agree to his demands the sooner he can do his orders and the sooner the turn will run. :wink:

Maybe we could call you the "Laird and Master"?

Note, this joke probably doesn't make sense to a lot of people, even if they do live in Englad. I don't care.

Nope. Expect nothing in character from me. I know nothing about the books except what I've seen on these forums. I warned Sal of that when I signed up...

:lol:

Well I only read about half before giving up but I do know Cersei is a female. I noticed LM volunteered/demanded Lannister. Is there anything you feel you need to tell us LM? :wink:

You needn't be afraid, we will understand. :wink:

While I did read lots of the Wiki, I didn't know Cersei was of the female persuasion until the 2nd email LM sent me, where he added the 'Lady' to the signature.
