Introduction and Backstory

The campaign will take place in Westeros, the mainland in the Song of Ice and Fire series (Game of Thrones). Westeros is a land of political turmoil and the turnover rate for kings is relatively high.

Acceptable races include Human, Halfling, Dwarf, and Half-elf.

House Arryn: Great House of the Eyrie, a virtually unpenetrable fortress placed high in the mountains.
