--Not everyone can be a sword-wielding, armored, bad-ass. Need some other types as well. Maesters (clerics), thieves (thieves), weird exotic types from across the narrow sea, places like Qarth (mage), young kid (there are a lot of young kids in this world), etc
--Need to ponder a bit on why six-seven people of very (distinctly) different backgrounds are all hanging around together...all part of the Nightswatch? Rebels and bastards united for common cause? Part of a mercenary company? Coincidental serendipity? Met at an inn?
--Need to ponder time-frame of events. Who is king currently and all that.
valadaar (giving me creative license to assign him any character i come up with. Has not read books, or seen show (blasphemy!), but claims to be familiar with "intrigue" :p)
Kassy (any preferences, generally speaking, as far as what *type* of character?)
Scras (note to self: Scras wants to be a Lannister)
Echo (Dornishman? Greyjoy? Targaryen?)
Ted (Ted's currently tempted, but not yet official)
Dossta (any preferences, generally speaking, as far as what *type* of character?)
Mourngrymn (good man to have. Read 4 books. never done pbp though.)
Need a map. Can't play GoT w/o a map, dammit.
