For my first try at this RPG I’ve decided to take a bit of a twist to the setting (not always the wisest move on a first go). My setting would be the Spring after the book series, thus avoiding any clash with the storey line.
I’m nearly finished the 5th book (pg 800) so I thought I would take the time line form that point and drive history forward entirely in favour of Cersei Lannister. I was hopping for some help with ideas on how Westeros would look mid spring with a short winter and Cersei on top.
Here are my thoughts so far:
- Tommen sits the Iron Throne and Cersei is behind him as the true power. Cerseis foes in Kings Landings have been defeated by intrigue.
- The Others are stumped at the wall and the Black Watch is pretty busy trying to assimilate all the Wildlings they let through.
- Bolton holds the North, not sure if he should reluctantly bow to the South or be Independent.
- Ironmen loose greater part of their fleet gambling on trying for Dany, but remain independent. Raids of the Ironmen are a constant threat on the West Coast now.
- Dorne is independent.
- Dany and her Freedmen are beaten in Slavers Bay.
- The Reach, The Westerlands, Stormlands, Riverlands and Kingslanding are all loyal to the Throne and held by houses made puppet to Cersei.
- I’m not sure what would happen to the Vale with Little Fingers.
As a note, I’m not actually a fan of Cersei, but I think if she won out Westeros would be a place fractured and ready to boil with rebellion and intrigue. Pretty much I want her to win because she is incompetent.
Also, could someone explain the Influence Stat in House creation? Does one need to spend influence in order to have an heir, or is that merely if one wants a notable heir (PC or major NPC)?

She allways seemed to me a little bit silly/over the topp in her actions (at least in the books, in the TV series at least in the first one she appaers to be a little bit more intelligent and even - to some extent almost sympatic so to speak ).
Allthough i like most of Martins Char (or think that they are at least well drawn if i do not like them) Cersei was one of the characters which appears a little bit drawn to mono so to speak.
But this did not mean that she must be so indefinitly. People can change and learn over time...
