They had come together at the ford of the Trident while the battle crashed around them—Robert with his warhammer and his great antlered helm, the Targaryen prince armored all in black. On the prince’s breastplate was the three-headed dragon of his House, wrought all in rubies that flashed like fire in the sunlight. The waters of the Trident ran red around the hooves of their destriers as they circled and clashed, again and again until at last a crushing blow from Robert’s hammer stove in the dragon and the chest beneath it. When Ned had finally come on the scene, Rhaegar lay dead in the stream while men of both armies scrabbled in the swirling waters for rubies knocked free of his armor.

Welcome to the Chronicles of Westeros!
Within these pages you’ll find information about my campaign set in the world of Westeros, as depicted in the cycle of novels A Song of Fire and Ice by George R. R. Martin and the roleplaying of the same name by Green Ronin Publishing. Westeros is “a world of noble houses, great and small, true and false knights armored in shining steel, lords and ladies resplandencent in silks and furs, and the smallfolk who toil in the lands and holdings of the nobility. It is a game about honor and duty, family tensions, the responsability of leadership, love and loss, tournaments, murders, conspiracies, prophecies, dreams, war great victories and terrible defeats. It’s also about dragons.
