WARNING: SPOILERS FOLLOW!

"Foes and false friends are all around me, Lord Davos. They infest my city like roaches, and at night I feel them crawling over me." The fat man’s fingers coiled into a fist, and all his chins trembled. "My son Wendel came to the Twins a guest. He ate Lord Walder's bread and salt, and hung his sword upon the wall to feast with his friends. And they murdered him. Murdered, I say, and may the Freys choke upon their fables. I drink with Jared, jape with Symond, promise Rhaegar the hand of my own beloved granddaughter... but never think that means I have forgotten. The north remembers, Lord Davos. The north remembers, and the mummer's farce is almost done."
~Wyman Manderly, A Dance with Dragons


INTRODUCTION AND GAME SUMMARY

Game Summary
• Dance with Dragons scenario
• No Ravens
• No Tides of Battle
• Playing moderator + external moderator
• Hoping to keep a fairly quick pace

A Dance with Dragons Scenario
The Dance with Dragons scenario is the same as the base game, with the following changes:
• The starting set-up and House cards reflect each House's position as of the A Dance with Dragons book.
• There are garrisons on Storm's End (4) and Oldtown (3), and no neutral force token on King's Landing. The Storm's End and Oldtown garrisons function like the regular home area garrisons, but Storm's End and Oldtown do not count as home areas.
• The game lasts only six turns.

Ok, on to the normal stuff... (Note that there is a Dance with Dragons House card reference at the bottom of the post!)

I. Game Overview

1. We will use the 2nd edition Dance with Dragons rules and board with the exceptions mentioned in Section IV: Rule Clarifications and House Rules. If a question is not answered in the rulebook, we will use official responses from FFG and the FAQ. If this still doesn't answer the question, I will make the call.
2. Tides of Battle Cards will not be used.
3. Ravens to other players (private messages / Geekmails / etc.) are not allowed, thus forcing all communication to be posted publicly in the thread. Lying is allowed so lie as much as you want!
4. Westeros cards will be drawn randomly using Geekrolls. The Wildlings deck will be created in advance using random.org's list randomizer and managed by the moderator.
5. Houses will be determined using Geekrolls. Feel free to exchange houses as long as both players agree.

II. Playing by Forum: The Basics

0. Use common sense. You do not need a moderator to resolve anything that does not involve a hidden feature (e.g. bidding). Do not wait for me to tell you to make your move; just check the turn order and resolve your action when it is your turn. You can also post and correct maps as needed. Of course, I will try to help keep things moving along.
1. Let's all work together and avoid unnecessary delays. Please try to check in at least once a day and do not rely only on notifications/subscriptions. Because we are using the browser map, players are encouraged to update the map on their own. (Speaking from experience, it's also a lot more fun when the game moves quickly!)
2. If you will be away from the computer and unable to participate for 2+ days, please notify the moderator and/or the entire group.
3. Players will be replaced at the moderator's and group's discretion if they have not posted in the thread or responded to Geekmail reminders for some time (~2 days, unless the group decides to wait). This is to keep the game moving at a relatively fast pace, which is more fun for everyone.
3b. It is helpful to forward your Geekmail to an email address you check regularly, so that in the worst-case scenario the moderator can Geekmail you and you will notice the Geekmail. This option is under the Settings link in your Geekmail.
4. Use normal text for regular discussions.
5. Use italics for politics and roleplaying (highly encouraged!).
6. Use bold text for in-game moves and actions.
7. If possible, do not edit game-related stuff (actions, politics). If you must, highlight the text that you edited by leaving the old text striked through (use [ - ] [ / - ] without spaces) to clear up confusion. Someone may read your original post and not notice what has been changed later.
8. To make things easier, we will address each other by our House names (for diplomacy and game actions in particular). You may address me as moderator or just as mod.
9. All players will use banners when posting. Place them at the beginning of every post. To make them appear, type in [ImageID=#######medium] where ####### are the following numbers:

Bolton: 1505605

Lannister: 1152904

Baratheon: 1152902

Greyjoy: 1152903

Tyrell: 1152907

Martell: 1152905


The moderator will use a special banner:

Moderator: 1152928

III. Playing by Forum: Orders, Battles, Bids, Etc.

1. Submitting Orders, Bids, and House Cards: Geekmail me your orders, bids, and House cards. To help keep things clear, all Geekmails should have a subject as prescribed below.
GeekMail Subject Format wrote:
Orders:
AGoT PBF [Game #] - Round [Round #] - [House Name] - Orders
Bid:
AGoT PBF [Game #] - Round [Round #] - [House Name] - [IT/F/KC/W] Bid: [Bid Amount]
House Card:
AGoT PBF [Game #] - Round [Round #] - [House Name] - [Area Name] - [Card Name]

Example GeekMail Subjects wrote:
Examples:
AGoT PBF 123 - Round 1 - Bolton - Orders
AGoT PBF 123 - Round 2 - Bolton - IT Bid: 5
AGoT PBF 123 - Round 2 - Bolton - Moat Cailin - Roose Bolton

1b. Since we are using the browser map, you can preview your orders on the map. Please send me your orders exactly as they should be copied and pasted into the browser map (area names spelled correctly, with a colon and the order after; you can just copy directly from the browser map to the Geekmail). I will of course try to correct syntax when it appears to be breaking the display, but it's helpful if we can get it right the first time. And remember: the responsibility for ensuring the correct order has been selected is yours. (More on this in the USING THE MAP section below.)
1c. After sending me your orders/bids/etc. via Geekmail, post in the thread that you have done so. This will help keep the game moving along.
2. Resolving Combat: To resolve combat, we will use the following steps:
(a) The attacker calculates and posts both his and the defender's initial combat strength. This includes the combat strength of both Houses' units in the embattled area, the combat strength modifier from march or defense orders (+2, +1, +0, or -1), and the combat strength of supporting units and orders from each player's own units.
(b) Both attacker and defender then ask for support from other houses. Those who wish to support any side should declare it by posting their support action in the thread in bold. If support has been declared, the supporter recomputes and posts both parties' modified combat strength. The attacker can send conditional House Cards based on whether support is granted (e.g., send Theon if Baratheon supports, otherwise send Asha).
(c) The attacker Geekmails me his chosen house card and informs everyone by posting that he has already sent his house card to the moderator.
(d) The defender Geekmails me his chosen house card AND posts it in the thread.
(e) The attacker reveals his house card by posting it in the thread.
(f) The attacker or defender may now decide if he will use his Valyrian Steel Blade token.
(g) Anyone may now recompute and post the final combat strength of both parties. Combat resolution follows.

Notes:
• Steps 2b & 2f are optional and may be skipped.
• In the interest of speeding things up, the attacker may skip Step 2b and proceed with Step 2c. In this case, support from other houses can still be declared as long as the defender has not yet Geekmailed me his house card (Step 2d). All support declared after Step 2d will no longer count.
• In Step 2g, anyone may resolve the combat without waiting for the moderator.
• Below is an example of how to post battle information. You may copy and paste this text and modify it for the current battle.
Battle for Moat Cailin wrote:
Battle for Moat Cailin

[Attacker]
Units: 3 (KN, FM)
Order: -1 (M-1)
Support: 0
Card: Send to moderator
Total: 2 + ?

[Defender]
Units: 1 (FM)
Order: 1 (D+1)
Support: 2 (SH, S+1* order)
Card: ?
Total: 4 + ?

3. Out-of-Turn Actions: Please try to refrain from out-of-turn actions. You may think that it will not affect what other players are doing, but in a game this complex, you never know what your actions might influence! If you will be away from the computer or just want to help keep the game moving, you can Geekmail me your out-of-turn orders. If you do post out-of-turn orders in the thread, you are bound to them.
4. Changes to Orders, Bids, and House Cards: I will accept changes to orders, bids, and House cards until I have a response from each player. If the last player I was waiting for already submitted their order, bid, or House card, then nothing can be changed. If an order, bid, or House card was posted in the thread, it is binding.
4b. At the same time, this is a game, so if you make a genuine mistake and want to take it back, we can allow it if the entire group agrees. But we'll try to avoid this to keep the game moving.
5. Mistakes and Errors: If you see something wrong--from the moderator or another player--let the group know right away! I will do my best to correct any mistakes as fairly as possible.

IV. Rule Clarifications and House Rules

1a. Game of Thrones Westeros II Card: Players collect one Power Token for each Port with at least one of your ships and no enemy Ships in the adjacent sea.
1b. Dark Wings, Dark Words Westeros II Card: If "Collect Power Tokens" is chosen, it will be handled the same way as the "Game of Thrones" Westeros Card.
2. Not Enough Order Tokens: This rule will be ignored completely in order to keep the game moving at a faster pace. Should this situation arise and you notice that the players after you on the Iron Throne track have not yet submitted their orders, it is good gaming style to inform those players which areas did not receive an order.
3. CP* Orders: I will assume by default that you want your CP* order to be resolved as your last CP order, thus mustering later than another player with a lower ranking on the Iron Throne track but with less CP orders. Should you wish to forfeit this advantage, please say so explicitly either in your orders or at any point during the action phase, but before the mustering happens.
4. Faulty Order Placement: If something is wrong with the orders as you submitted them to the moderator, the following ruleset is valid:
(a) if a player has more special orders on the map than allowed, extra orders are downgraded (if possible) according to alphabetical area order.
(b) extra orders left on the map after step (a) are completely removed in alphabetical area order.
(c) if after step (b) or by a player's mistake there are areas without orders, the areas remain without orders. (Note, however, that per the rules all areas must receive orders, so please do not deliberately issue invalid orders or decline to give areas orders to gain an advantage [not including the situation of not having enough order tokens].)
(d) if a player placed a forbidden order (per a Westeros III card), it is removed without replacement.
(e) if the map shows something different than what you intended, the orders as displayed on the map stand (double check your orders are what you want!).
(f) if I did catch a mistake that you've made, I will Geekmail you to notify you of your mistake and you will be able to change your orders up to the point that all the houses have sent their orders. Once all orders are in, your orders are final!
Note: Grace can be shown in cases of mistaken orders if all players agree. This is left to the moderator's and group's discretion.
5. Retreating and Ships in Port: Should you lose a battle and be forced to retreat from land that has a port, you immediately lose control of any ships in port and as such those ships do not count against your supply. Your opponent can later decide to replace or destroy them.
6. Leaving Power Tokens in Areas: Upon leaving an area, the standard and assumed play is that you have not chosen to leave a Power Token to establish control of a vacated area unless you have declared your intentions of doing so. Here is an example:
Leaving a Power Token wrote:
March-1 from Riverrun: FM to Seagard. Leave PT.

Grace may be given to players that forgot to leave a PT but had wanted to provided only a march or two have passed, provided no players object. As always, your posted orders are binding unless your opponents have mercy on you and no one objects to a revision. The moderator reserves the right of special consideration regarding this rule.

V. Final Comments

This is a game, and games are meant to be fun. Please remember this as there may be circumstances in which you become frustrated, tense, and even angry. But, this is all part of the charm and appeal of this game. Having said that, make threats and blast your opponents with insults (within reason) while posting in-game roleplaying. Try to keep out of character communication as civil as possible. And remember: Have fun!


USING THE MAP

Map Overview
• On top of the screen is a semi transparent black bar, when you move your mouse cursor over it a menu should slide down.
• There are clickable links to show/hide Power Tokens, units, and/or orders at the top of the drop-down semi-transparent black bar.
• Hovering your mouse over an order token will also cause it to temporarily disappear so you can see the units underneath. (If a unit is on top of a power token, click the "Show/hide units" text to temporarily hide the units.)
• Power Tokens are displayed on the bottom-left of the Wildlings track in the format X/Y, where X = Power Tokens currently possessed by each player and Y = Power Tokens remaining in the pool.

General Notes
• Each area should be on its own line.
• To place units or order tokens, enter the area name followed by a colon and space, then the unit name or order name. Make sure to use the correct text box.
• To remove units or order tokens, you can simply delete the units or order, but leave the area name followed by a colon and space (": "). If there is not a colon and space, it can break the display, but leaving the area names in can save time retyping them. Alternatively, you can just delete the entire line.
• To place a Power Token on the board, simply add the area to the "Powertokens in areas" box on the House Settings page. Make sure to decrease the number of available Power Tokens.
• To specify a port, add " - Port" after the area name. Make sure there is a space before and after the hyphen.
Important: Blank lines, misspellings, and extra spaces can break the display. If something isn't showing up, check for these errors. Note that the case does not matter (FM and fm both work).

Units
Footman: FM, Footman
Knight: KN, Knight
Siege Engine: SE, Siege
Ship: SH, Ship
Routed units: Add routed- before the name given above (e.g., routed-KN)
Multiple units: Separate with commas (even for multiple units of the same type) (e.g., FM, FM, KN)

Orders
Note: There are different options for entering orders (see the thread on using the map for more information if you're curious), but I think the options below are the most clear (every order shows combat strength modifier, and every starred order has a star), so please try to use these. I will try to confirm your orders are correct, but ultimately the responsibility is yours, especially since you can edit the map yourself to preview your orders.
March-1: M-1
March+0: M+0
March+1*: M+1*
Defend+1: D+1 (D is also ok)
Defend+2*: D+2*
Support: S
Support+1*: S+1*
Raid: R
Raid*: R*
Consolidate Power: CP
Consolidate Power*: CP*

House Settings
• Units, Orders, and Power Tokens boxes place units, orders, and Power Tokens on the board. For example:
House Settings in Browser Map wrote:
Units:
Dragonstone: Footman, Knight
King's Landing: KN, SE
Crackclaw Point: FM
Shipbreaker Bay: SH, routed-SH
Blackwater Bay: Ship

Orders:
Dragonstone: M+0
King's Landing: CP*
Crackclaw Point: D+1
Shipbreaker Bay: R
Blackwater Bay: S+1*

Powertokens in areas:
Kingswood
Blackwater

Influence Tracks & Dominance Tokens
• Each House, garrison, and neutral force should be on its own line.
• When a garrison or neutral force is destroyed, delete the line from the garrisons box.
• To adjust the House order on the various tracks, use the appropriate text box(es). (Try to remember to update the victory track after capturing a castle or stronghold!)
• When a dominance token (Valyrian Steel Blade or Messenger Raven) has been used for the round, you can check the appropriate box on this page to overlay a "used" indicator on the main board display.
• The round marker and Wildlings strength can also be adjusted here.

Sharing the Map
• Every time you change anything, a new tinyurl.com link should appear in the black bar at the top of the screen. Post this link in the thread. Sometimes it fails to create a valid link, so please check if you have a valid tinyurl link before submitting your post.
• Occasionally, there is no tinyurl link on the black bar. If this happens, click the Power Token display in the upper-left corner of the board to increase and then decrease the PT count (from 5/15 to 4/16 back to 5/15). This should generate the link without needing to re-enter information.

I'm going to try the House rolls in this post. Hopefully I don't screw it up and end up with something unworkable. If I do, I'll just delete this post.

Ok, that seemed to work.

IronyThrown -- 1custom4{Greyjoy; Martell; Bolton; Tyrell} -> ( Greyjoy) -> ( Greyjoy)
Coyote13 -- 1custom3{Baratheon; Bolton; Tyrell} -> ( Tyrell) -> ( Tyrell)
Aipha -- 1custom4{Baratheon; Bolton; Martell; Lannister} -> ( Baratheon) -> ( Baratheon)
Nerran -- 1custom2{Martell; Lannister} -> ( Lannister) -> ( Lannister)


Which leaves Bolton and Martell. I've been Bolton, and bagisbjorn has been Martell, so

bagisbjorn -- Bolton
Biarien -- Martell


Trades can still occur if desired, of course.

I'm fine the Lannisters unless someone has a wish to play with them, then I'll give them up.

As I haven't played Baratheon yet, and Martell & Bolton are well-taken, I shall stick with the Fiery Stag!

Lord Greyjoy,

For us to have an understanding I believe the footman being spotted at the Stony Shore needs to travel south.

Roose Bolton


Lord Baratheon,

Let's discuss ways for you to travel home to Dragonstone. I see Lannister and Tyrell banners close (too close) to your borders and I believe the soldier you have in the north are needed elsewhere.

Lords Tyrell and Greyjoy,

I would love to hear your proposals regarding distribution of our troops and how to divide territory between our borders.

Yours, Ser Lancel Lannister

Lord Baratheon,

I am sure you recognize that your lands are under threat from many sides, and allies are needed in these dark times. I hope that Dornish lands may be counted safe from any raids or marches from Storm's End.

Lord Tyrell,

Shall you require Dornish waters to sail your fleet back to Highgarden? If so, an arrangement may be worked out. If you wish for your ships to remain around the capital, however, we shall take control of the East Summer Sea to protect our borders, and may even be able to offer some support to your lands.

~Doran Martell

Ser Lancel,

You know our words and our reputation. Some of us Greyjoy's have better sense than others, and lust for blood and salt wives is not what drives us. I serve The Drowned God, and his service is best met with a strong fleet covering many waters. Your green lands mean little to him, although House Greyjoy must visit them from time to time to fill the coffers of the Ironborn. What concerns me is Seagard. Either help us to secure it or stay out of any possible conflict we might have with the Boltons and Riverrun will remain free from Greyjoy reapers. Build another ship if you must, but keep it in your port. If you agree to these terms, and your actions agree with your words, then the Greyjoy forces at your doorstep will find other lands to occupy. Of course, the ability to harvest the Searoad Marches must remain intact.

Aeron Damphair,
What is Dead may never Die


====================

Lord Bolton,

I have little concern for whether we harvest at the Stony Shore or Greywater Watch. However, vacating the Stony Shore is not a priority. If you wish to show my fellow Ironborn the road to Greywater Watch and see them safely there, then no objections will arise from Pyke. Our suspicions may be aroused if either an unfriendly looking march or host is presented against us.

Aeron Damphair,
What is Dead may never Die

OOC: This will be my first time playing with Greyjoy in a PBF, unless you count a card draft game I came in mid-game where Greyjoy was being stomped

And Greyjoy would have continue to be stomped by a nicely leaded Lannister if you hadn't take over on Greyjoy angry

Think I still haven't accepted this Gregor Clegane cavalry destruction in Riverrun

Have a great game guys, this gaming group is great !

Lord Tyrell,

His Grace has a few concerns about the ships placed in the Bay around Dragonstone and Storm's End. He has heard proposals of the fleet returning home, and would assist such an expedition if possible. As Prince Martell has been promised as well, there will be no raids on Tyrell lands either.

We hope to see fruitful relationships emerge from this.

Lord Roose Bolton,

His Grace would like to thank his Lordship for the hospitality shown in the North. He is much impressed with your dealings with the Starks and are looking forward to returning to his home in Dragonstone as soon as possible. We ask that you do not muster any ships from White Harbor for now, but this can of course be negotiated later on.

Prince Doran Martell,

His Grace thanks you for the raven sent to him. Lady Melisandre has seen in the flames, that he must return south to his holdings. His hope is, that the Dornishmen will recognize his journey home and assist the Tyrell fleet through the southern seas, as was proposed. His Grace wishes you to know, that his men are instructed not to raid any lands near the borders, but rather defend what is, so that there may be a home to return to.

Lord Baratheon, my fleet is clearly ill positioned for the defense of the realm. I will move it to a more defensive position.

Lord Martell, time is short. I think it would be a fool's errand to sail this fleet all the way back to my shores. And Paxter has some intriguing designs for new vessels I think we may want to try. With my blessings please use your fleet to defend your seas. I believe our borders are currently sound.

Lord Lannister, I think it is obvious that Crackclaw Point is a point too far for my men. Also, my men worry for the safety of their twice-widowed queen (sorry about your "nephew" by the way). I believe an exchange would be in both of our best interests. I am open to this being a straight march or tourney. Our other borders seem sound and I am willing to defend them, though I see no reasons for troops to mass in the Blackwater, do you?

Lord Greyjoy, I hear tell you are sending an expedition to Essos and the other eastern lands. Once they are safely away, I'm sure your presence in the West Summer Sea will no longer be as important as their effectiveness in your campaigns to the North. We have no quarrel with you and I hope you have none with the Rose.


Orders In.

Holy cow Tyrell has a lot of neighbors.

Yeah, not one of my better moments...

I took a chance (slim I know) that a CoK would not hit. You know what happened. I think it was pent up frustration from the previous 4 or so roundsshake

Pious Aeron,

your terms are reasonable, and my house will uphold them.
Regarding Seagard I will leave the matters of it to Lord Bolton and you, I will take the stance neutrality in that affair.
Regarding the shipbuilding, we will not raise any more ships in Golden Sound, perhaps a few new ships will be built in port for the purpose of trade and thats it.
Searoad Marches are yours as long as there is no raids from there to plunder our lands.
May your Gods gave you favor in upcoming battles as long as they are not Lannisters lands.

Signed, Lancel Lannister.

My good Lord Tyrell,

perhaps you can allow my family to stay one more season in King's Landing, so you can set your sights somewhere else in vicinity. I suggest this only because other Lords are keen to take away our territory and they will flock on us very soon, perhaps a critical blow to them will significantly improve our positions in the game of thrones.
If you agree we will vacate Kings Landing in the season after this to settle in the region of Crackclaw Point.
In the end I believe we are natural allies and we should keep it like that, all in spirit of marriage of our noble King Tommen to your lovely Lady Margaery.

Lord Tyrell,

This seems most reasonable. Dorne is patient, yet also knows the value of time. We wish you success in your other endeavors.
