The Wellers were famed stewards to the Casterlys of the Westerlands, but when that dynasty fell apart – as so many kingdoms of the Andals did – so did the main branch of their stewards. The ancestors of the Lannisters massacred the main line of the family, leaving a few scattered scions to keep the family name alive. The survivors kept the sigil of the goat and headed east into the Riverlands, finally settling there. They never really recovered, and the house has slowly been spiraling towards obliteration for nearly 800 years.

The family languished in mediocrity until the Blackfyre Rebellion. They backed the black dragon – Daemon Blackfyre promised them incredible wealth, lands and Harrenhal, a rich prize for the poor family. Daemon Blackfyre made a lot of promises to a lot of lords, though, and never followed through. The war exhausted the meager treasury of the Wellers, Daeron II’s edicts stripped them of what little power they had, and a brief brush with a major battle annihilated the peasant levies and left entire fields untended. Worse still, crime flourished within formerly orderly population, which cost the Wellers much of their remaining pride.

The Wellers bent the knee to the Targeryens, who looked favorably upon the house. The courteous but brusque stewards even served on the Small Council for Jaehaerys II. Though they backed the winning side in the later rebellion of Robert, it did them no better than it had the last time. The house fortunes and knights broke like sticks against the forces of the Targaryens, while the second son perished in the battle at Ashford. The eldest son – the former Lord Weller, instrumental in securing the alliance of Baratheon, Stark and Tully – died during the Battle of the Bells, his contributions forgotten in the string of victories that followed. Lord Jon Weller was not the skilled diplomat or stalwart warrior his elder brothers were; his half-hearted attempts to ingratiate himself to Robert squandered the goodwill of the king and he could not match wits with the vipers infesting the Small Council like his father could. In 292 AL, he quietly committed suicide, leaving his son, Horace Weller, to take on the challenge of restoring the family.

HORACE WELLER, Lord of Wether Tower
-his lord father, {JON}, publically died of a pox,
-his lady mother, {EVONNE} of House Sylver of Moonwatch in the Vale, died in childbirth,
-his uncle, {SER EMBRY}, slain by an unknown hand at the battle of Ashford, his arms and armor lost,
-his uncle {SER ERRYK}, died during The Battle of the Bells, his sacrifices unmourned,
-his uncle SER JORDAN, bitter and bored, Captain of the Guard
-his cousin ISKANDER, from a lesser branch of the goats, rich and audacious;
His household:
-HARREN FREY, son of Ser Whalen and Sylwa Paege, 46th in line for Lord of the Crossing,
-SER DUNCAN RIVERS, self-described Bastard of Blackwood, his sworn sword,
-MAESTER BIGSLEY, a young maester with a newly-forged chain.

I would love to join in if this can be done inline with GMT?

Im a huge fan of the books, and love roleplaying in MUDs. Not got a ton of tabletop experience but would love a chance to learn. I'd be interested in building a rich, well thoughtout character.

let me know! rob@indiespring.com

Hi, I would like to join a party, or help to create one.
I have quite good actor abilities as player. However, I am an exchange student here without car, and I cannot travel far away. But maybe I could do that to Washington D. C.. I would rather not to take part in online games. They are quite boring, according to my experiences so far.
