The Game of Thrones: Intrigue WarderDragon No Fictional nor Medieval Civilization upon which Britannia is based has emerged from the death of its leader so peaceful. So apathetic. So serene. That needs to change. That a legion of corrupt warlords and opulent aristocrats haven't begun clamouring to establish power in the vaccum - i.e. a Game of Houses - is a sign of poor fiction and opportunities wasted. Thus I propose we - the RPers - attempt to fill the void where others choose not to. So how are we going to inject more intrigue - perhaps a bit more chaos and bloodshed - into our Fiction and Interactions? Basis for the thought once intended for the Event Moderators. The concept of a Monarch or Emperor ascending the Throne without decades of bloodshed and political intrigue is a rather modern one. Our past is rife with examples of Wars fought for Power. For Greed. Wars of Succession. Wars for the Crown. Charlemagne had to face his own brother Carloman - who in the end died of rather mysterious and convinient circumstances - before consolidating the land into one Kingdom. The Hundred Years War. The War of Roses. The Roman Emperors themselves were famous for dodging assassination attempts while contending with the subterfuge of Senators, Generals and would be Successors. And even our own Cantabrigian British was in embroiled in a long war against Lord Robert before consolidating the realm under his rule and establishing the Virtue Religion. That Queen Dawn has had to deal with only a few distant and outside threats is surprising. I propose a renewed emphasis on her enemies within Britannia. The Nobles. The Corrupt Politicians. The Generals. Perhaps most of them approved her ascension in the vaccum left following the defeat of Casca. But it would be a shock to me if some haven't considered turning against her based on recent events. The Invasion. The Crystal. The Loss of Magincia. And not a single response to the Attack on Yew. I would be surprised if some nobles weren't manuvering to garner the favor of Virtue Bane. I'm sure several would think it prudent to establish ties to the Demon in the event of the current regimes fall. I propose this. I propose the occasional minor invasion of the Capitol of Britannia. This would favor the Defenders - OOC - advancing the plot and giving the Town Guards an antagonist. This would also be a source of Quests allowing the Britannians to hunt down and expose the enemies of Queen Dawn. (i.e. Royal Spymaster.) Your thoughts?
