[0] Doran Martell: Immediately move your opponent to the bottom of one Influence track of your choice.

I've been doubting whether I should do this, but I guess it's fairly useful information to have. Here's a breakdown of the three Westeros decks as well:
Westeros I Cards

3 × Supply: Adjust supply.
3 × Mustering: Muster units.
2 × Thrones of Blades [W]: Holder of the Iron Throne chooses Mustering, Supply, or no effect.
1 × Last Days of Summer [W]: Nothing happens.
1 × Winter is Coming: Reshuffle the deck and draw a new card.
[W] = Wildlings increase in power

Westeros II Cards

3 × Clash of Kings: Bid power tokens on influence tracks.
3 × Game of Thrones: Gain power tokens. 1 token for each power icon in controlled areas, and also for each controlled harbor with at least one ship present, with no enemy ships in adjacent areas.
2 × Dark Wings, Dark Words [W]: Holder of the Messenger Raven chooses Clash of Kings, Game of Thrones, or no effect.
1 × Last Days of Summer [W]: Nothing happens.
1 × Winter is Coming: Reshuffle the deck and draw a new card.
[W] = Wildlings increase in power

Westeros III Cards

3 × Wilding Attack: Bid power tokens to fend off Wildling Attack.
1 × Sea of Storms [W]: No Raid orders can be played this round.
1 × Rains of Autumn [W]: No March+1* orders can be played this round.
1 × Feast for Crows [W]: No Consolidate Power orders can be played this round.
1 × Web of Lies [W]: No Support orders can be played this round.
1 × Storm of Swords [W]: No Defense orders can be played this round.
2 × Put to the Sword: Holder of the Valyrian Steel Blade chooses Rains of Autumn, Storm of Swords, or no effect.
[W] = Wildlings increase in power

You should probably put a list of which players are in this thread in the OP, and what houses they're playing. Same for the other thread.

Well, half the players haven't checked in, so you don't need to worry about plotting yet, but I was planning to allow personal messaging. I assumed that was the reason someone suggested discord, so that everyone can be easily reached . So yeah, private ravens are allowed.

What pace of play are you guys anticipating?

I live in the US Central time zone and have a full-time job, so I probably won't be able to get things rolling until this evening. But I can run Discord in a background tab at work if people want to nag.

The way I see it, checking in once a day should be possible. I would ask for a hard-ish limit of 24 for any decision, but I understand if delays occur (for example because of too much politicking)

Turn 1 orders


Influence and other tracks:

Everyone, as before, has 5 power tokens, and still has all House cards.

blackmongoose gets to either replace one order, or may ask me about the top card in the Wildling deck. After that, Gutter Owl may resolve her raid order, followed by everyone resolving March orders, one by one, in the order shown on the Iron Throne track.

Edit: Btw, are we going to use player's names, or shall we switch to Lord/Lady [House name] instead? Might be amusing .

Map Update


Influence and other tracks:

Rules detail I ommitted to mention earlier: As long as no enemy units or power tokens (PT) are present, you automatically maintain control of your home region (and you even re-gain it if enemy units leave the region without leaving a PT behind).. House Stark didn't need to leave a power token behind in Winterfell.
Everyone other than Martell still on 5 PT. Martell has 4 now.

Greyjoy to play.

Still on phone so not too fancy:

Greyjoy plays Victarion. Stark plays Greatjon Umber. Combat strength is 5-5, Greyjoy victory. Stark must retreat.

Posted with permission: Gutter Owl's private comments on submitting House Cards

On the invasion of Moat Cailin

quote:

Combat in Moat Cailin, send Victarion.

My thinking is, he has to know that sending Eddard in against possible Balon or Euron+Valyrian is suicidal. And I don't think he'll want to use Robb on defense if he can avoid it. So he's going to send Bolton or Cassel/Blackfish, and Victarion beats any of those clean and saves the Valyrian for the inevitable Riverrun fight.

I'd like to just call out Cassel/Blackfish and throw Theon, but Bolton is too safe an option, and I need to save the blade if I want any hope of holding Riverrun for a turn.

Of course, I could totally be misreading Stark, and he'll windmill slam Eddard and gently caress my brains right out. But you gotta take a risk or two, right?

On the defense of Riverrun

quote:

hrm. So it's a glass-in-front-of-me scenario right now. He has to know I win if I play Balon (4 v 4 with the sword) unless he plays Ser Kevan (5v4). Euron beats Kevan (6 v 6 with sword). So he's either playing a gambit, or just hoping to get me to waste 2 power on Damphair...
I think I'm going to gamble on a Kevan or Hound play, rather than a suicide Tywin.
and if he plays Ser Gregor...well, good job wasting Ser Gregor.
I'll play Euron Crow's Eye, flipping the sword as needed. Final answer.

Gaze upon the words ye mighty, and despair.

Processing Consolidate Power orders

Tyrell gains 2 PTs from Dornish Marches
Greyjoy gains 1 PT from Pyke harbor

Turn 2 begins

Westeros cards:

Last Days of Summer - nothing happens (Wildling threat goes up to 4)

Game of Thrones - each House gains PTs equal to the number of Power icons in their controlled territories + the number of friendly harbors with at least one ship, and no adjacent enemy ships.

Baratheon gains 4 for total 9 PTs
Lannister gains 2 for total 7 PTs
Stark gains 2 for total 7 PTs
Martell gains 1 for total 5 PTs
Greyjoy gains 4 for total 9 PTs
Tyrell gains 1 for total 6 PTs

Wildling attack bids:

Baratheon - 2
Stark - 1
Tyrell - 1
Martell - 1
Greyjoy - 0
Lannister - 0

Night's Watch victory. Wildling threat resets to 0. Baratheon is the high bidder and gains the bonus effect:

Crow Killers
Wildling Victory
- Lowest Bidder: Replaces all of their available Knights with available Footmen. Any Knight unable to be replaced is destroyed.
- Everyone Else: Replaces 2 of their Knights with available Footmen. Any Knight unable to be replaced is destroyed.
Night's Watch Victory
- Highest Bidder: May immediately replace up to 2 Footmen, anywhere, with available Knights.

(Just like in Westeros 1, I find myself wishing for you guys to fail. The aftermath of a failure would've been hillarious. The great culling of the nobility, making every last man and woman on the battlefield be truly equal)

Since Baratheon only has 2 Footmen, I went ahead and replaced them. Captain Rightful, you can still refuse those upgrades if you so desire . Just let me know.

Turn 2 planning phase begins




Power token totals (counting the CP orders that I failed to count last time, so Greyjoy +1 and Tyrell +2):
Greyjoy - 10
Baratheon - 7
Tyrell - 7
Lannister - 7
Stark - 6
Martell - 4
