    I'll go with Dorne then. Should we not also be rolling for historical events and junk?

    Re: (OOC) - Vaulting Ambition

    Yes, feel free to do the full steps of House Creation. Just let me know how old your house is, what historical events you rolled including some backstory on how the event affected your house, your coat of arms, and your house resources plus all holdings you invested in; also let me know who's side your house fought on during the Blackfyre Rebellion.

    Also don't feel pressured into choosing Dorne. There's no limit on how many can be from a single region, so you could all theoretically be Reachmen.

    So Corrigon it looks like you've got:
    Defense: 23
    Influence: 19
    Lands: 18
    Law: 26
    Population: 26
    Power: 24
    Wealth: 23
    Does that sound about right? Did you apply the bonuses/penalties for a Reach house?

    EDIT: Please note as well, that as per the rulebook's suggestion under the GoT style, that your "stable" or troupe of player-characters is related to your influence stat; the rulebook says for every 10 points of influence, you gain one character to use. I'd like to stick with this rule but allow for a minimum of 2 characters per player. So if you rolled up influence 32, you'd be able to have 3 characters; likewise, if you roll a 17 influence, I'd let you have 2 characters, etc.

    I've never played in a Game of Thrones style game before. What advice do you have for the newbie player?

    What areas are left to choose from?

    Re: (OOC) - Vaulting Ambition

    Well, to be honest, this is my first Game of Thrones style game too, but I'd recommend a schemer and a warrior/leader first. That way, no matter if you're on the field of battle or at court and in need of some intrigue, you'll have both those bases covered. If you get more influence and can get a third character, I'd recommend probably either an expert or rogue archetype next, that way you've got some specialists and a generalist, and basically can adapt to a situation as it arises. Does that help? If not, keep asking questions it's what I'm here for!

    And you can pick from either the Reach, Stormlands, or Dorne. Whichever geographic region fits your fancy.

    Just to make it more fun, I'll go with the Stormlands.

    I'll roll up the initial stats for the house later on tonight.

    Now as far as age and significant events...do you want those posted publically or private message to you?

    Re: (OOC) - Vaulting Ambition

    I'd say posting the age and significant events here are okay. If you have a part of your backstory that's a family secret feel free to PM me. That goes to all the other players as well; don't want possible rival houses knowing all your secrets. ;P

    Re: (OOC) - Vaulting Ambition

    I'll post all on here.

    When you described the 3 different lands, you listed a couple houses for each. Do we pick one of those for our home house and roll it up like normal?

    Roll one up normally, please. Those were put as examples from the canon of Houses you will probably meet and interact with.
