It has been a long summer in Westeros (and beyond) but the weather is changing. Kings fight kings across vast battlefields while the people suffer. Successions are tricky things, and this one is no different. The prince is too young to rule, and some deem him unworthy. His uncles fight amongst themselves for their claim to the prickly iron throne.

Meanwhile, in the north, the days are getting shorter and nights are getting colder. Deep, chilling snows soak the Night’s Watch through and through. Their numbers and dwindling and the coming winter looks to be long. Even the wildlings are not up to their usual tricks.

The white ravens have been released by the citadel.

Winter is coming....

Are you prepared?

It is now day 1.

Please elect yourselves a king. The King will have 1 veto.

Also... I will prob not post a lot between the hours of 8am and noon and 1pm and 4pm (EST) M-F. My psych rotation has terrible service and the patients all think I'm contacting the FBI when I try to surf the internet on my phone. But that rotation is ending soon.

And in the mean time.... if you're a wolf, I have some news for you. HEADS WILL ROLL

I am definitely not changing it to hot pie! I have a 5 hour busride tomorrow so I mayy start watching on HBO Go so I can follow along the game better!

elect Devyn

Devyn - this is in addition to the booze as way of apology for trying to throw you under the bus last time.

Wall citizens - get behind this vote. The Wall toughens people - we need a tough king.
.. and by king, of course, I mean queen.

Man. And I even already knew Devyn. Took less than a page to change somebody. On a roll.

Please play more 6 am (CST) to 9pm (CST) times....I SLEEP LIKE AN OLD PERSON.

No offense, SOV and LIS ;)

For now....I vote elect Devyn

However, I suspect I will be back on around 6:45 (CST; i.e. 7:45 EST....i.e. just before votes close) to reevaluate my shiz. If anyone else has decided they want to be leader and I decide you are WORTHY.

Devyn's hours and mine are similar...and I am a fellow drunk...so I suport YOU Devyn (if you want it)

As far as the vote goes I think it should be someone that knows enough about the series so elect DocE

I will also add that I am an epic wolf killer. This is only backed by two games (so take it with a grain of salt). My most recent game I was a wolf so... i obviously couldnt kill wolves (even then i did kill one anyway haha).

So me as a leader may be useful. But I wont be offended if you vote in a local. Gotta trust the person. Some of you dont know my tendancies and perhaps dont trust me yet. I'll earn the trust. Or die trying.

I have been meaning to read these books, but have not had time yet. With that, AlaskaDream has a knack of picking out wolves. So... elect AlaskaDream.

Not trying to shoot you down as mayor, but... I just don't get the whole "wolf killer" argument (and yer certainly not the first to use it). What am I missing that would make us want to make sure we pick an "epic wolf killer" mayor versus any other mayor? Mayors don't have any inherent advantage in killing wolves over any other player, right?

I am apparently a fan of incest, which kind of sucks (can't post in the other thread cuz it's locked). But I will be keeping my avatar, if only to make things interesting :laugh: (LIS--there better not be a rope item in this game!!!!)

Lissa would probably be a good choice for mayor, methinks.

Elect Lissa.

The argument becomes that if youre good you are going to want to be somewhere that people respect you enough to trust a hunch. often thats all you have. Mayor adds extra creedence. Similarly my hunch has saved a villager with a veto (once. but thats 100% frequency). Having the extra influence is good so a correct hunch isn't ignored. Then again, I dont care if you don't vote me. Just making my case once.
