SOME GAME PLAY INFO
Each player will have a specific role to play within their House, decided by the team. Roles include:
The LORD - Take your place at the head table and direct the overall, big picture strategy of your House and be the lynch pin that holds everyone together. Be the face and voice of your House to the entire world. You will make and break alliances, barter goods, manage the treasury, and reveal uncovered secrets about other Houses. This role does best with players with good skills in negotiation and diplomacy.
The HEIR - Location holds no bounds for the heir, who has a role to play at every table in the game, with special powers based on blood lines. You'll be in a position to support your teammates and bounce around to different tables as needed each turn. You will boost armies, improve alliances, uncover dirty secrets, and play the only role on your team that can quest after powerful lost relics. This role does best with players with good skills in creativity, communication, and flexibility.
The MAESTER - Master of Magic and the Dark Arts, the Maester engages in dice based game play to support the rest of your team from the shadows and covertly hinder the enemy. You will uncover dark secrets, arrange clandestine marriages, find legends of forgotten relics, and forge new links on the heavy chain of knowledge. This role does best with players with good skills in understanding dice probabilities and optimizing choices.
The KNIGHT - The field of Battle is your home, as you strategize to both protect and conquer amidst an ever changing landscape. Play this role if you want the most tactical experience in the thick of military actions across the face of Westeros. You will lead armies to attack, coordinate supplies, lay sieges, and raze villages to the ground.This role does best with players with good skills in logistics and resource management.
* The winning house will be decided based on a combination of territory amassed, relics discovered, and secrets revealed over the course of the game, and will end the day sitting at the Iron Throne!
