"CHAOS IS A LADDER"
The Great Council of 101
In the name of His Majesty King Jaehaerys, First of His Name, of House Targaryen; King of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men; Lord of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm,
We hereby declare that a Great Council shall be held during the first quarter moon of the new year in the presence of all the great Lords and Ladies of the Realm, to decide on the most pressing matter of succession.
The Council shall convene, for everyone’s convenience, at the great fortress of Harrenhal in the Riverlands, by most gracious concession of Our host, Lord Strong. Each noble House is invited to send representatives to show off their support in relation to the many claims that are currently being pressed, so that we may finally reach a most desirable agreement on who should succeed His Majesty upon the Iron Throne.

It is 101 AC (After Conquest). King Jaehaerys Targaryen, First of His Name, sits the Iron Throne and Westeros has never known a longer period of peace. The Realm prospers under his rule and the bloody wars that preceded his ascension to the throne have finally come to an end. House Targaryen and its legacy appear as secure as ever, the Good Queen Alysanne having birthed the whole of 13 children - many, now, already with children of their own.
It is known, however, that seeds of war are often sown during times of peace, and from the loins of the Old King and his beloved Queen has sprung such a confusion of claims and claimants that many maesters believe that war is, eventually, inevitable. When in 92AC the heir apparent, Prince Aemon (Jaehaerys’ eldest son) died suddenly, the Old King was persuaded to pass over Lady Rhaenys’ (Aemon’s only daughter) claim and proclaimed his second son Baelon the heir. When Baelon himself dies unexpectedly, in 101AC, the King is forced to call for a Great Council, so that the lords of the Seven Kingdoms can settle on who should succeed him on the Iron Throne.
With factions both secret and official sprouting up everywhere, as powerful characters start to weave their intrigues and play the game of kingly seats, what Jaehaerys ends up with is a powder keg, poised to explode at any moment, plunging the Seven Kingdoms back into the bloody chaos of civil war.
Power / Intrigue / Family / Legacy / Magic / Prophecy / War / Fighting / Treachery
Players will be able to portray a variety of characters, some of whom are well known to those familiar with the source material, and others which are new and specifically written for this LARP.
Playable characters include:
Members of House Targaryen
Some of the “outside” claimants to the throne
Westerosi nobility from all over the Seven Kingdoms and their retinue
Special guests invited to attend the Council, coming from the eastern continent
Mysterious figures with hidden agendas
Players will receive pre-written characters and, during the Casting Process, they will be able to specify their preferences for gender, families, rank, themes, game type, etc.
Casting is not based on real-world looks, ethnicity, age, or gender (players will be cast on their chosen character gender).
Our main goal is to bring Westeros to life and to give our players the most memorable experience, making it feel as authentic as possible. We want you to feel as if you’ve stepped into the pages of the books or entered the screen while watching the tv-show.
You might participate in conspiracies and intrigues; or have to fight for your life and the lives of those you love; you’ll have the opportunity to exchange your soul and good morals for power and riches; and, finally, you’ll have to decide what legacy you'll leave behind. Your actions and decisions will be able to shape the future of the realm and change the known course of history.
Sensitive themes and triggers
Because the universe created by George R.R. Martin can be a harsh and unforgiving place, players may encounter themes of extreme violence such as sexism, torture, sexual violence, death, etc. While you will encounter these themes in-game, we DO NOT condone out-of-game racism, ageism, sexism, violence, LGBTQ-phobia etc. Displaying such behaviour will result in the player being banned from the game.
During casting it is possible to opt-out of certain themes and during the game the mechanics will allow you to opt-in or opt-out whenever you want.
Please keep this in mind while considering whether or not this game might be for you. A more detailed explanation on how we plan to handle sensitive topics & game mechanics to portray them will be featured in the Player's Guide, which will be made available before ticket launch.
