King Aerys Targaryen II just earned his title of the Mad King by executing the Warden of the North, Rickard Stark, following Stark’s demanding justice for Rhaegar Targaryen’s alleged abduction of his daughter Lyanna Stark. The War of the Usurper has begun, and members of Robert’s Rebellion must navigate the muddy political waters of a war-torn country as well as outmaneuver the Targaryen armies if they are to make it out of this conflict alive. Will Robert Baratheon, Eddard Stark, Jon Arryn and more be able to best the military prowess of Prince Rhaegar? Will a Targaryen remain on the Iron Throne, or will a new king take his place? Delegates should understand the history of Westoros and Game of Thrones history, as well as be willing to be creative and adventurous.
