    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IdHg_sDxzM DUCHY OF ULYADAR 1513 The sickly Duke Arvid in his chambers. The doors of the humble room burst open as Prince Bruce stood in the doorway, his jaw dropping at the sight of the ghastly sight of his fathers near-soulless body strewn upon the bed. The sheets were drenched in sweat, and the only thing audible in the room were the sounds of women weeping, and the groans of old Duke. Other then that, it was silent, yet the walls of the room were lined with visitors and mourners alike. Bruce, the Prince, had just arrived from the gathering at the realm of the Lithborn, and he raced over on his bear from Ulya to the keep at Tykirfell, where the King was, as soon as a maid bore him the ill revelation. “Father!” Bruce yelled, as his sword and everything he held in his hands dropped to the ground as he rushed over and kneeled at the side of his elder. The weak eyes of the man slowly made its way over to the prince, who was tightly clutching his bony hand. “Myyy sonnn…” mumbled the King, followed by a sequence of brutal hacks and coughs. “Father… the Bloodied Once can help you, we can sacrifice all the sl-” the frantic prince began saying until he was interrupted by the sickly royal. “No, my time has come, listen, Bruce,” “Blood for Blood father, Tykir can grant you blood.” “Listen to me, Bruce. I will not postpone my suffer-” a brutal, and bloody, combination of wheezes, hacks and coughs, would interrupt the commencement of the Duke’s monologue. Arvid’s other hand would, with a lot of effort, place itself upon Bruce's head, and he would smile lightly, a small glint appearing in his pale eyes. “Bruce, my son,” he would begin, almost as if his life is fleeing him with every syllable. “My death is here, there is nothing to be done.” He would gasp profoundly, the entire crowd of aides, guards, and members of the aristocracy would grow completely silent, and focused upon the pair. “You, my son, have things that need to be done, however. I have seen it in my dreams and in myvisions. A champion has told me that you, my son, will be close to Him, he will use you, and you will let Him.” Bruce would struggle to nod, squeezing out a response; “Yes father, I will,”. The Duke would continue,pausing after every few statements to recover the strength to utter the words that follow. “Bruce, my last words to you, will be the following. Take heed of them, and use them.” Bruce would nod, his adam's apple bobbing as he pushes his rising sorrows back into the depths from which they emerged from. “You have His favor. Conquer this land, its enemies likewise, and become not a Duke, but a King of the realm, a King of Blood.” And with that last sentence, the Duke exhales one last time, and his hands fall upon the white fur covers of the bed. The sounds of weeping and mourning would overtake the room, as Bruce’s face would sink into the sheets. When one door closes, another opens. Hundreds of men set out to the lands south of he-that-waits, and begin hammering the rocky earth with their iron picks. The scene is a similar sight for miles without end. Figures of men spread out across the terrain, hacking at the same rock for long, dreadful shifts. Some, after a several hours at it, find themselves in a foxhole some 2 metres deep, before they simply quit, and choose another rock to begin chipping at, and repeat the same process. The citizens of Ulyadar, especially the elite, have faith in the words of Assirbanakh, a stone effigy older then the very existence of any concept known as an Ulyadi. So much so that they have even offered a reward for the lucky individual who finds the coveted ice steel. When flyers advertising such an opportunity made their way onto notice boards in cities, towns, and colonies alike, there was a great rush amongst the peasantry of the nation, and hundreds of men took up the call for labor, and made their way to the designated areas. Now, for a month now, the great collection of peasant-miners has been combing the coastline, toiling in the brutal arctic gustsin search of the lucky clink that will be the forever craved ice-steel.

    D U C H Y O F U L Y A D AR As the morning fog casts a blanket-like mist over the placid seas, the Ulyadaran ship trudges on slowly, the oars hovering above the water as the rowers were on the deck, stretching their sore arms, quitely leaning upon the sides of the creaking ships above snoring warriors sleeping on mats. They had been on the water for roughly two days now, leaving the frozen icy waters near the Ulya and entering into much more temperate waters. It made no difference to the Ulya however, they don't know what cold is, they have never experienced it, yet they live surrounded by it. The Ulya seldom leave the cold waters, preferring to stay within its frozen domain in search of whales and other creatures with thick layers of profitable fat and blubber on them. In a previous, more peaceful time, the Ulya left the port of Yakur as meer fishermen, battling the waves and its profitable fruits frollicking underneath. Now, this time, the Ulya leave the port of Yakur as warriors, as raiders to distant lands in search of foreign blood, and foreign wealth. The 3 ships carrying the raiders are arranged in a triangle formation, with the lead ship, the Kraka, at the behest of the leader of this expedition. Blood Warrior Gnupa was the Chief of the expedition. Gunpa, has made great strides in his career lately, starting out as meer frontiersmen who was put at the head of a colonisation effort, and was now granted his first inks on his arm, a ritually important aspect of the elite aristocracy. He stood at the tip of the Bow, his gargantuan body looking into the sea, commanding courses for his ship, named Kraka, and the two ships accompanying him, named Brea Jarl, and Geirr. He was a reserved by successful commander, remaining calm and cool. Periodically he would pull out from the inside of his furs a folded piece of parchment, littered with unintelligible scribbles and eye it over, before jamming it back into his furs and continuing to everlasting gaze into the never ending abyss that is the open sea. The faint orange cap of the sun was rising in the east, and some of the warriors had already started on their daily tasks. Life on the fleet was repetitive at times, and the sheet of fog cast over the waves was ordinary now. These types of mornings have been seen countless times, but yet it was different still. Everyone, on all three ships, was on edge. A couple hours ago they had witnessed a white seabird dash across the bow of one of the ships, and zip away in the direction of their destination. They were close, and they could almost feel it. After a couple hours of trudging through the waves, the rhythmic grunts made in unison by hundreds of men ceased when Gnupa peered at his map for one last time and stashing it securely on his belt this time. He would reach for a hatchet that lay on the ground next to his other belongings, and walk heavily to a rope attached to the side of the ship. Effortlessly he strikes the rope, and sinks the axe several inches into the wood, the rope flailing across the ship until the lamp which was secured onto it dropped over the side of the ship and into the seas, the rope resting limp on the deck. Everyone in the crew knew what this meant. It was time to prepare for blood. Silently, but with an almost rehearsed efficiency, all three ships sprung to life. Oars were lifted out of the waves and jammed back into the hull, and shields were placed on the openings from which the oars sat on before. By the time they completed this, the warriors which were resting on the deck were awake by now, kneeling in their respective positions near the bow or the stern of the ship, depending on whether or not they were archers or infantry. They already had their swords and axes in their hand, and their shields placed above their heads, ready for battle. Ladders were already thrown overboard by the time the rowers emerged from below, and took their positions next to their brothers-in-arms, shields raised above their heads. These actions were all achieved in a matter of minutes, and soon the entire collection of ships were dead silent, with only the waves and the ruffles of the sails guiding the ships being heard by the anxious warriors. From a distance, it seemed like the ships were unmanned, as there were no bodies to be seen from the eyes of the early morning farmer, who curiously looked on as he saw the figure of three large ships enter the harbour of the village. He had just finished pouring the last of the feed into the wooden crate from behind the fence, much to the joy of the feasting hogs which gluttonously devoured it in moments. He brushed his hands on his shorts, and approached the beach, looking on as the ghost-ships edged on closer and closer into the harbor. At first glance, the poor farmer innocently thought that the crew had all suffered some horrible fate at sea, which was all too common these days. Bravely, he approached the ships, his worked feet powering their way through the tides until the three ships stopped abruptly, beaching themselves. Immediately, from seemingly the heavens above, a giant individual leaped down from the deck, splashing into the water below. The farmer lets out a light yell in fright, which is immediately silenced as his skull is split into two by a small, red hatchet, his lifeless body tumbling into the bay with a splash, staining the surrounding waters red. Gnupa drew first blood, which is immediately consecrated to Tykir in a quick ceremony, as has always been done in battle.The ritual is a private one, and by the time Gnupa finishes, the screams of the villagers begin to litter the air as the warriors of Ulya descend upon their homes, pillaging the peasants and reaping the rewards. Such a fate would not be limited to this one settlement, as the convoy moves from village to village, make sure their hulls are filled with gold before they return to home.

    OUTER RIM TRADING COMPANY Damien Townsend, Earl of Shrewsbury, was a man with a meticulous routine. He woke up promptly at 8 am GMT, put on his silk robe and bathed in his black-marble shower with natural spring water imported from East Anglia. After he showers, he dresses himself and heads up to the penthouse, where a hot brew of Chamomile tea in his white, ‘GOD SAVE THE QUEEN’ mug with the trademarked symbol of the crown in place of the word Queen awaits him. He would not have his tea right away though, as he would wait normally 16 minutes for the tea to cool down to an adequate temperature, where he would slowly sip it for hours whilst reviewing his agenda, answering messages, and setting his daily plans into motion. This is his routine he has been doing every day for over 13 years, which is how long his tenure as Director of the Outer Rim Trading Company has lasted. His long tenure can only be attributed to the high level of success the company has seen under his stay, and his character. Overall, Townsend was a quiet, but amicable guy, but he had one rule, one rule which no soul ought to break less he wishes to be cast into the farthest corner of the lower levels, don't disturb him until 10:30 am, which is when he finishes drinking his tea and preparing his mind for the strenuous affairs of managing the outer rim. To all new staff that is hired to the palace, they are always given the same message. Don't disturb the director until 10:30, unless its for a dire emergency. So strict was Townsend on this rule, that it is rumored amongst the staff that Townsend once banished 3 custodians ,who lost track of time and knocked on his door accidentally, to the lower levels for life. There was almost a collective heart attack amongst all the staff when a communication from the Empress arrived for the Director, which, according to protocol, has to be delivered by hand by one of 20 people, 20 extreme confidants of Townsend and other high ranking officials. The communication was received at 9:41 am, and the message was marked urgent. A decision had to be made, someone has to take the message up. So, professionally, straws were used to decide who is cursed enough to have to deliver the message, and deliver himself to the depths of poverty and certain torture for the rest of his life. Gasps of sighs and reliefs were collectively let out when the majority of those gathered opened their sweaty palms, revealing a complete white plastic straw. One however, was in utter silence and disbelief. A black man by the name of Edward Ovuve held in his thick hands half of a tea straw, which meant he was chosen, by chance or by god, to deliver the message. He solemnly dropped the stick on the ground, and began balling. The lad had to be consoled by his partners, as they all anticipate the worst consequences for such a grievous sin. He was given one last call to his wife and 4 children before he was given the transmission, and was pushed and shoved unto the lift, which took him to the 80th floor. Edward had to pass through 100 metres of hallway which seemed like a mile. Lining the walls were paintings of previous directors, his gaze kept jumping back and forth from left to right, left to right, until he finally reached the door, and his vision ended on the last painting, a depiction of the smiling face of Townsend. The oak wooden door taken from the Buckingham palace itself seemed like the gates to hell itself as Edwards shakey knuckles rasped the old wood thrice. The door automatically opened, at which Edward was greeted with the peering eyes of Damien, who, not even removing his gaze from the contents of his desks, simply asked him, “What is it at this ungodly hour?”. He spoke in a posh accent, with a slight midland drawl on certain pronunciations. Edward, still a nervous wreck, said quietly, and half mumbled, “A letter from the Queen, Sir.” Townsends eyes immediately lifted themselves to meet the extended hand of Edward. Townsend reclined himself in his chair after snatching the letter quickly, and opening the seal, his brown eyes darting across the parchment as he reads the letter, leaving the poor Edward looking on, awaiting his punishment. After a couple moments of silence, Townsend sets the letter down, and returns his gaze to Edward, staring him down in his pair of black eyes, until the Earl pronounces, “You can leave lad, and get yourself a cuppa on the way out you look like a wreck.” At this, Edward was taken aback at first. Was that all? Was he not going to sentence me to the lower levels? His thoughts were interrupted by the confused stare of the Director, which causes Edward to quickly realize his mistake and shift his feet out the penthouse, shutting the oak wood doors and virtually running down the hall, his eyes tearing up of joy at the fact that he was spared from the supposed wrath of the Outer Rim Company. -Officials at New Albion order for the colonization procedures of Neptune to wrap up, sending 4 squadrons to establish colonial settlements at the 4 remaining moons of Hippocamp, Sao, Laomedeia, and Psamethe. -In light of recent terror attacks, a new statue of Oliver Cromwell is commissioned, nearly as large as the statue of liberty herself and made out of pure diamond. -The previous, outdated, Minotaur class cruiser is slowly phased out in light of the newer, and better, Unicorn class. 150 Unicorn class carriers are ordered to be built in the shipyards across the system. -Scientists research a form of telescope that can provide on demand, clear photos of objects out of the system, and inside the system. It is hoped that this telescope is so accurate it can provide us with accurate, clear images of the ground, including infrared images of the ground, from millions of millions of light years away.

    The Outer Rim Trading Company Pluto, circa 2935 It was mid day in the bustling planet of Pluto. Tube-like structures spanned the entire city, covered in spotless glass upon which in the blink of an eye lightening fast monorails zipped inside, carrying thousands of people across the planet in a few minutes. The sun, from pluto, looked like a meer bright star, whilst the planets’ 5 moons were instead the guardians of its horizon, scattered around the sky and zipping around their orbits at high speeds. Commonly seen is the faint outline of several massive ships streaking the sky, the thin atmosphere of Pluto allowing the residents of New Albion to peer into the vasts abyss that is the Plutonian Space Zone. Deep underneath the sea of skyscrapers, factories, ports, shipyards, and other buildings that filled the entire planet of Pluto was a sea of commerce, industrialization, and urban life seen only once or twice throughout the system. Pluto, was the crown jewel of Victoria's Crown. It was the single most important commonwealth possession, boasting more shipyards, ports, and a strategic position for domination of the outer rim not seen in any other settlement. Manning its docks and working its inner workings was a vast collection of commonwealth citizens. Just a stroll down the center street, Victoria Abbey, will grant you a glimpse of what the true meaning of the commonwealth is. Surrounding the pure diamond, gem encrusted statue of the great Oliver Cromwell was a sea of indian, whites, and blacks easily numbering several million people spread over acres of wide open market space. Along the edges of the wide plaza, tall, fancy government shops and buildings lined the plaza, advertising their costly luxury goods complimentary of the Empire. At the north end of the plaza, spanning the entire side, is the hearth of all the wealth of the Outer Rim. It was the Palace of New Carlisle, a massive creation spanning miles and miles on end. It was a massive palace, roughly 80 stories high, and covered in victorian and gothic architectural intricacies. It was a marvelous thing to gaze at, and one could lose themselves in the miles of detail which covers the building. There was masonry depicting legendary events of Britain and her Empire. The Danish invasion, Constantine declaring himself Emperor at York, flattening of Dresden, and the final parliamentary meeting cementing Britain's exit from the EU. This building emulated Britannia in Pluto, and it was the home of the government of the Outer Rim. Inside the palace, through the winding maze of halls, rooms, and offices, there was one which truly mattered. That was the office of the Director of the Outer Rim Trading Company, called the Penthouse for short as it lay at the top of the palace, serving as the crows nest to Pluto. Completely enclosed in glass, some lucky individuals could boast having a view of the Director, Earl Damien Townsend, from their own window, perched at his desk, as he does every day, bearing the responsibility for ensuring the Outer Rim meets its goals and fuel quotas. -Company ships, having been confined to the ports as a result of fuel shortages stemming from the crisis on Callisto, begin to take leave their ports and reestablish Commonwealth protection and supremacy over trade lanes and dominance over the Outer Rim. -Colonization efforts are ramped up on the part of the company, who dispatch 4 separate squadrons to colonize 4 different moons on the planet of Neptune. The 4 squadrons set out for the following celestial objects: Nereid, Naiad, Thalassa, and Neso. -On asteroids and other celestial bodies owned by the Commonwealth they attempt to mine them in search for valuable, rare, or useful minerals or metals that could be put to use by the commonwealth. -The Outer Rim Trading company allocates funds and resources to assist in the Admiralty’s naval plan. -Scientists and engineers are ordered to come up with a secure, safe plan regarding the storing of the Empires precious fuel so that a disaster on the magnitude of Callisto is yet to be repeated.

    D U C H Y O F U L Y A D AR Adaptation of Hukux and her raven leading her men into battle, from the Ulyadar Archives. In the hall of the Duke there was a great commotion. A long anticipated expedition into the icey expanses of the two glaciers right on the border of the Dukedoms territory had produced curious results. Everyone had heard the tale, of the entire company being wiped out, except for one who died in a long tumble, and was recovered with a icey-blue arrowhead protruding out of his mid chest. All the lords, merchants, and men of high status were present in the cozy wooden room, including a pair of two librarians who remained silently in the corner, observing the ordeal and taking notes on a set of parchment papers. Eventually, a set of wooden double-doors engraved with calligraphic runes opened from the beginning of the hall, and collectively the attention of all the individuals present focused to the procession of the Duke through the hall, sporting a blood-stained polar bear pelt, the rear paws dragging on the stone floor several feet behind the Duke. Pelts, in the Duchy, were not only articles of clothing but they were often times symbols. They represented the thoughts and the sentiments of the wearer, so at the site of such a display there was immediate clammer in the hall in the form of a wave of hushed murmers and remarks. A blood stained polar bear pelt meant that the wearer was preparing for battle. In the cavalcade across the hall, accompanying the Duke was the palace guard, the prince, several recognizable scholars of the land and the Queen. The ones of royal blood took their seats on their respective thrones, whilst the others filed into reserved seats in the front of the hall, separated but near the landed aristocracy. Before the court can even commence, a sacrifice must be made to Tykir. It is usually a small mammal, but there is a different animal for different purposes of a session of court. An aged Duke could tell what the entire court would be on simply by what animal was slaughtered at the beginning. At the opening of a side door and the revealing of a small jittery Wolverine, many of the swords in the room grew anxious. A Wolverine was a sacrifice to the 2nd Champion of Tykir, Krek the Blade, the Angel of Battle. This, coupled with the pelts of the Duke correlated a bloody response to the encounter in the glacier against the unknown. After the ceremonial slaughter of the wolverine on a altar made out of a glossy black stone said to be thousand-year-old rock from the peak of Mt. Arfast, a group of Knights approached the Throne and kneeled. The lead knight, bearing a red flag across his shoulder, held something wrapped in a hide. “Rise, Knight, and show me the meaning of all of this,” commanded Arvid. The Knight flipped over a flap of the hide, revealing a collection of 4 arrows, clearly transparent but with a blue tinge to it. The shaft is expertly crafted, and perfectly polished with no apparent blemishes or dents. The end of the arrow had four sets of black feathers evenly spaced out around the shaft, originating from a common bird found throughout the region. Most of the feathers were stained with blood from their target, and some were even missing.. Graciously emanating from the entire arrow itself is a calm stream of a steam-like gas, the arrow apparently constantly sublimating as a testament to its frozen nature. The Duke looks over his shoulder to a robed man standing on his right, asking “Is it what we thought it was?” The man would do nothing but nod twice. Arvid would rise, and abruptly, to the surprise of most of the women in the hall, drew his families sword from his sheath, plunging it into the oak below his feet and subsequently captivating the attention of every single person in attendance. “Firstly, immediately, the Lords of Odelia, and Rypapa will raise their levies. We will need 500 bows and swords, well supplied and furnished for a long voyage into the ice plains. Secondly,as many of you correctly assumed, these arrows are the product of the lost Tribe of Hukux, who apparently survived the banishment into the ice plains after being defeated in the Battle of the Boiling Peaks by the shaman-warriors of the Raksa Clan, whom were one of the three tribes who created the Ulya. The daughters and sons of the God-damned cowards who fled the defeated army of the champion slayer, Hukux the *****, shall serve only one purpose: to feed the fires of the Blood Forge.” The declaration would be met by agreement from the congregation in the form of yells from the soldiers of the land, applause from the yeomen, and blank faces from the silent librarians , though their quills would furiously start to twitch when they saw the grayed Duke clutch his armoured stomach through his layer of chain and pelts….

    A Game of Thrones [RP]

    HOUSE OF ARRYN As High as Honour The road from the Eyrie to the first of the three way castles was a long winding one. The skinny, icy road weaved between towering peaks and gaping canyons, and was plagued with a constant hail of powerful gusts of wind that would make walking difficult for even the most strongest warriors. The castles of Sky, Snow, and Stone guarded this all important road from the possible enemies of the Vale. On top of these were two more formidable castles larger than the Eyrie itself. Any Army striving to conquer the vale would have a bloody time doing so. Lysa Arryn rode on her White Horse flanked and surrounded by 30 Knights of the Vale, clad in glimmering silver armour and proudly trotting next to their overlord. They were descending down the mountain, to the Gates of the Moon, to greet the infamous Lord Petyr Baelish, a valeman himself who came to seek refuge with Lysa after the fall of Kings Landing. Baelish, the vale, and Lysa had a long, loving history, and Lysa naturally immediately rode out of her mountain abode to greet her long time friend when a rider arrived giving them word of Baelish’s presence at the moon gate, the door into the Eyrie. The Caravan had passed the way castles on the road, and after a couple hours of riding the Gates of the Moon was in plain sight. The bleak black mountain road running right into its oak door, which is surrounded by a series of towers, walls, and other defenses that seem to be directly carved into the Mountains. Once the caravan arrived at the Castle, the Lysa led the Knights into the festive hall, where a great deal of singing, eating, and drinking was taking place, Baelish in the center of it all talking amicably with the Lord of the Gates of the Moon. The room would go silent when Lysa entered the hall, and many of the men stood up in respect. Lysa however, stared at Baelish, and smiled. “Come here to escape the hellhole of the Lannisters have you?” Baelish, also standing, replies into his glass as he takes a drink and smiles. “I just got a little homesick that's all.” Lysa would smile, fill a small glass with ale and down it in the middle of the hall, which receives a collection of screams and yells from the garrison, which returns back to its feast, serving as the background to Lysa and Petyr reunion after many years. -Petyr Baelish begins to use Lysa to a lot of influence in the Vale, assuming a high administrative position as a result of his close relationship with Lysa. He begins to foster amicable relations with many of the Lords of the Vale. -Preparations for Winter Continue. -Another 200-400 or so Knights of the Vale go out on a excursion to fight back some of the Mountain Clans and tribes, to curb their expansion and bold raids into settlements and towns in the vale. -The Vale ignores any and all obligations sent to it by any other House of Kingdom, essentially isolating itself diplomatically from the other 7 Kingdoms of Westeros. -Many of the Lords of the Vale caused a stir when they heard the news from the High Septon that a Lannister was made in charge of the Vales soldiers for the Faith! A Lannister would never lead a man of the vale into battle! Jon Lynderly is offered to the High Septon as the Chief Faith Militant for the Vale, an improvement over the Kingslayer.
