So as I'm sure many of you know the RP section has been a little stagnant for a while so I thought I'd try out an idea that's been on my mind for a while.

The RP would be set during the war in a castle owned by a sickly noble in Colovia. After the war broke out the noble sent most of his guards out to war and so had to hire a mercenary company (the bloody mummers) to protect his castle as the forces of the Dominion, Pact and Covenant got closer. However, a necromancer in service to the Tharn family commanding an army of undead legionaries recently arrived in Colovia and quickly began brutally forcing back the alliances but the undead ravaged the Colovian countryside as well, killing Imperials along with alliance forces.

Fleeing from this ever-growing undead host, many soldiers from the Pact, Dominion, and Covenant as well as the Imperial legion have taken up residence in the castle of the sickly noble rather than face the host of the dead which has gathered outside the castle walls waiting to starve out its occupants.

Your characters can be either freelance mercenaries hired along with the mummers to defend the castle or as officers/soldiers of the refugee armies taking up residence in the castle. It's also important to remember the tension that would be had in the castle with four different factions holed up inside and how difficult it can get during a siege.

Posts should be about two to three lines long if possible (and of course the usual no god-modding, no walls of text etc etc).

Roster:

Myself - Melwyn the drunkard.

I would be interested. I have a few questions...

What faction would Melwyn be?

Could you have multiple characters?

How much power would officers have, especially over other factions?

Would there be a council, or something like that, of ranking officers in each faction to assist the sickly noble?

Is the castle in good shape?

Who is the sickly noble? Does s/he have an(y) heir(s)? If so, where is(are) the heir(s)? What about other family?

Melwyn is the leader (or at least the creator) of the bloody mummers.

You can have multiple characters, but not all of relatively high rank (for example if you have an officer of sorts in the AD then you'd have a lower-ranked second character).

An officer would have no influence at all over other factions and could very well be targets of attempted assassination. Remember that the war is still ongoing.

No council. The noble is just a sick old man who can barely leave his bed and will spend pretty much the entire time locked in his quarters waiting for things to blow over or for his death.

Relatively good shape, though remember that this is a siege and supplies will be dwindling.

The noble is just some petty lord, his identity doesn't matter and his family's all dead for the purposes of this RP. The noble and his family won't play too much of a part in this.

What would someone have to do to join the Bloody Mummers? What rank could they be?

Could someone be the Captain of the remaining guards that the noble has?

I'd be up for this... Maybe... Depends on the interest... But for the purpose of the Rp itself I'm in... :)

I'll think of from what perspective I'd like to enjoy this...

If you want to join the mummers send me a PM since they're a little more complicated but if you just want a mercenary character then you can create a character that's just a freelance mercenary.

The noble has no remaining guards. That's why he hired mercenaries.

Welcome aboard Isilmo... I think... if not, then Hyeise!

Alright.

In the OP it says that he sent most of his guards, and, from my understanding, hired the Bloody Mummers to augment those few remaining nobles.

You are aware that the Bloody Mummers is an insulting name for Brave Companions in ASOIAF. Due to tha fact that peope Thinks that they are Calling themselves brave companions when they are either brave or companions to eachother, merely a cruel bunch of greedy sellswords. Melwyn is probably not the smartest if he named his sellsword Company like that...

Check his bio for his reasoning. I actually never realized the allusion to GoT until two days after I created the bio. Melwyn's also a drunk so no he can hardly be called smart.
