[All interested applicants please message Loreyon Redwyne (monsieur maven) to consider applying.]
House FLOREnt OPEN
Lord Dietrich Florent (Late 40s+) The Lord of Brightwater Keep, Dietrich Florent is an immensely popular and well-liked figure within the upper echelon of the Reach. Decidedly anti-Tyrell given his involvement in the Rebellion of Cider Hall, his eldest son and heir was taken as a political ward to Oldtown, though most agree that it is actually imprisonment. A man revered as a "true knight", he very likely would wish to see his son and heir freed.
House FOSSOWAY OPEN
The widow and children of Jon Fossoway are a family rich in political drama and intrigue. In 199 AC, the Fossoways led a rebellion (Known as the Rebellion of Cider Hall) that saw Reachlander pitted against Reachlander in opposition of increased taxes--an uprising that was put to bed when Hightower forces joined Tyrell's and they executed the Lord Fossoway. Houses Florent, Merryweather and others were among their allies, and all likely harbor resentment for the conclusion of this conflict in addition to perhaps an interest in settling the score between the rebellious houses and the lords Tyrell and Hightower.

HOUSE GREYJOY CLOSED (played by Xaaz Bogbat)
Lord Greyjoy: Lord Dalton Greyjoy (Lord Reaper of Pyke, Aged 38+)
A mysterious man. Mysterious because few know much of his past. Most of his young life was spent exploring, sailing, reaving and raiding far away from his homeland. He escaped much of the horrors of Winter on the Iron Islands, the civil war, the kinslaying and massacres. Yet he outlived both his elder brothers, some claim the man is responsible for the mysterious slaughter of these two brothers who were at war, thus inheriting the throne of the Iron Islands, but few dare to make an issue out of it.
Lord Greyjoy is as much feared as he is mysterious, despite his bad health and traces of greyscale. His keen interest in the divine and the marks of greyscale on his skin make some believe he has been touched by the gods, or something far worse and sinister. Due to his divine interests, and a septon he has kept as a thrall and close advisor, since many years ago, the man has taken a liking to the Faith of the Seven and believes that after the last brutal winter of famine and anger, the Iron Islands are best served involving themselves with the politics in King's Landing, if they wish to survive the next winter.
He is responsible for bringing in Maesters to the ironborn houses, as well as the construction of a few septs, and now after being summoned to the capitol by King Aeron, to aid against the pirate threat from the East, he seeks to have some of his sons knighted under the Faith of the Seven as a sign of goodwill to Westeros. His challenge is maintaining the uneasy balance between involving the ironborn in Westeros and respecting the old ways.

HOUSE GOODBROTHER OPEN
Lord Goodbrother: Lord ____ Goodbrother (Lord of Hammerhorn: Aged 25+) - House Goodbrother has perhaps always been considered the most civilized of the Iron island houses. The Drowned Men often mockingly refer to them as 'greenlanders' for they embraced the foreign and meek mainland customs much more eagerly than anyone else on the Iron Islands. Nonetheless the current lord Goodbrother is a shrewd diplomat and of a mercantile mind even with the ironborn blood running through his veins.
HOUSE DRUMM OPEN
Lord Drumm: Lord ____ Drumm (Lord of Old Wyk) - Dagon Drumm the Undead, one of the most infamous reavers the Iron Islands had ever seen, left a strong impression on his son before he sailed north to reave during winter and never returned. The Drumms are highly respected for their military prowess and fearlessness. Much like his father, the current Lord Drumm puts a lot of value in the 'old ways' and the faith of the Drowned God. He is sceptical and distrusting of mainland culture.
The Spoiled Prince OPEN
XXX - "The Spoiled Prince". This exiled Prince of Pentos served in his role only a short time before word of planned assassination over a trade dispute sent him into flight. Now exiled and despised in his homeland, he and a small, but disciplined group of men travel to King's Landing as "The Lost", a sellsword company whose motto and motivation is "Again Home" and who seek now the permission of the Crown to set up business in the property formally owned by Cletus Pitwatter.
SAAN Pirate-Lords OPEN
The Saan family is a Lysene line of Valyrian descent that has produced a number of famous pirates over the centuries. Saans have been distinguished pirate-lords for at least three hundred years, dating back to the reign of King Aegon I Targaryen. Growing uninterested with their current situation, they have turned their eye on Westeros; the Blackwater Bay particularly enticing.
House Rogare OPEN
--- Rogare and ____ Rogare and ___ the Auditor. The son and daughter of the current Patriarch of House Rogare in Lys. These two travel with the bank's auditor (can be male or female!) who is there to keep a handle on expenses and ensure that funds are not dispensed without significant advantage to the bank or House Rogare's plans.
AGENT OF THE GOLDEN COMPANY OPEN
A man of martial and criminal prowess, the Golden Company’s agent has been sent to Westeros to further the agenda of Aemon Blackfyre, twin and brother to the slain Balerion. They are working to integrate themselves into the criminal underbelly of King’s Landing; employing the services of smugglers, assassins, sellswords, con artists, whores etc. They walk the fine line between the world of court and criminality and have the potential to be part of both worlds, should they garner a position as a hired sword to the right man or woman.

THE KING'S HERALD OPEN
A man of common birth and noble ambition, the King’s Herald is arguably the most influential and powerful man of lowborn origins to be found within the Targaryen court. Heralds are traditionally responsible for formally announcing and conducting tournaments and to do so, must be intimately familiar with noble standards and colors. The King’s current Herald is a man of singular determination, to have pulled himself up from the gutters of Fleabottom and taught himself the history of Westeros’ nobility -- to the extent that none can question his ability -- although many still question his origin. Beyond tourneys and festivals, however, this man is the very voice of the Crown and is responsible for conveying its word to the people of King’s Landing and beyond. His power is not concealed in his name or his lands, but in his speech and he has the ability to shape the public’s perception of any royal decree.
