    [CK2 - AGOT] The reign of dragons




    Very few high lords, and certainly not the kings of Westeros, had taken notice when the young Aegon Targaryen inherited his father as Lord of Dragonstone. He was young, little known to the rulers of Westeros, had little land or gold, and no more than about 2,000 soldiers stood under his banner. Nobody could have seen him as a serious threat. But the young Aegon was different from his forefathers. He did not look to the east, where the free cities were fighting for the legacy of Valyria. No, he turned his gaze to the west, in the direction of the Seven Kingdoms, whose story would take a distinctly different, unexpected course through the Lord of Dragonstone. This is the story of Aegon of House Targayrien, Lord of Dragonstone.



    Good morning forum

    After years of quietly reading along, I finally got hold of my pen and write an AAR. The terrific strategy title is played Crusader Kings II by Paradox Interactive, although I focus on the total conversion modification A game of thrones, based on the television series of the same name and the novel series A song of ice and fire, will fall back. I will go into some specifics of the mod on occasion, should any questions arise.

    As can already be seen, I play as Aegon Targaryen from Dragonstone, the man who united the seven kingdoms into the realm known from the book and series. The whole thing will be a mixture of RPG elements, explanations reminiscent of history books about the respective epoch and personal comments. Of course, I will also address the readership, should one turn up With these words I already close this provisional introduction, it will probably really start around late afternoon.

    In this sense,

    Valar Morghulis

    Prologue - The world of ice and fire

    Westeros, in the time of the young Aegon Targaryen, was divided into seven quarrelsome kingdoms, and there was hardly a time when two or three kingdoms were not at war with one another. The Starks of Winterfell had ruled the cold, desolate north for millennia. In the deserts of Dorne the lords swore to the princes of the House of Martell, loyalty to the banner. The Lannisters ruled as Kings of the Rock in Casterly Rock over the Westlands with all their gold mines, the Kings of the Reach from the House of Gardener over the fertile expanse. The Vale, the Fingers, and the Mountains of the Moon belonged to the House of Arryn. But the two most aggressive kings of Aegon's time ruled the empires closest to Dragonstone Island: Argilac "the arrogant" Durrandon, King of the Stormlands, and Harren Hoare "the black", king of the Iron Isles and the Riverside.



    Most of the high lords and kings of Westeros at that time already followed the belief in the seven aspects of the one God, often just called the belief of the seven. The Starks of Winterfell, on the other hand, followed, like their ancestors for millennia, the old gods, the gods of the first humans. Likewise, the Iron Isles worshiped the drowned god instead of the seven. The Riversides, although ruled by Harren the Black, stood on the side of the Seven, for contemporary sources show that the Lords of the Riverside were hostile to their hated king and rose against his rule whenever they got the chance.



    Not far from the Stormlands was the island of Dragonstone, over which the young Aegon had ruled since his father's death. Erected by Aegon's ancestors, the stately fortress of Dragonstone in Blackwater Bay had once served as the westernmost outpost of the once great Valyria Free State. Well, a hundred years after its fall, it was the last surviving testimony to what was once so great a civilization. There wasn't much that Aegon Targaryen ruled over at the beginning of his career, as Dragonstone was only partially fertile and blessed with few natural goods. Yet he was the last head of his house to rule over his lands from Dragonstone.

    A few patches ago, the early starts in AGOT were extremely unstable, actually unplayable. Has that improved now?

    Prologue - The Dragon Lords

    Contemporary reports count Aegon among the greatest warriors of his time, as a gifted swordsman and strategic genius who, despite his talent, never got involved in competitions or tournaments. He wielded the Blackfyre long sword, forged from the fine steel of the fallen Free State, and was considered an extremely brave and formidable personality. And yet the young Aegon was just as much a mystery to his contemporaries as it is to many maesters of today. Except for his half-brother Orys, he had no close friends to confide in. Most important for Aegon's career, however, is the fact that he was a dragon rider, like the Dragon Lords of Valyria centuries ago.

    Aegon rode Balerion, "the black gray". Today it is certain that Balerion was the last dragon in the time of Aegon, which was still alive at the time of the fall of Valyria. Balerion had fangs the length of greatswords, and its jaw was big enough to eat a mammoth in one bite. Its black wings would make entire cities disappear in their shadow, and the fire that the dragon breathed was black as night. To this day, the dragon Balerion is considered the largest known dragon to have owned a rider, and was around 110 years old during Aegon's young years.





    Visenya, Aegon's older sister, was as much a warrior at heart as her brother. In the old Valyrian tradition, Aegon had taken his sister Visenya as his wife, who like him wielded a Valyrian blade. Although she did not come close to her brother's abilities with her sword Dark Sister, she was considered an extraordinary warrior, although she was said to be very serious and merciless, and she allegedly showed a fondness for cruelty, dark magic and poisons. Like her brother, she rode her own dragon, which was named Vhagar.

    Vhagar had hatched from an egg on Dragonstone after Valyria's fall. At a little less than 50 years of age, she was considered a young female dragon who displayed a quick temper. Although she was nowhere near as tall as Balerion, a full-grown horse could have been ridden in her jaws, and her fire melted the steel of knight armor as did the men who wore it. Contemporary observers speak of the dragon's dark green wings and scales.





    In contrast to Aegon and Visenya, their little sister, Rhaenys, was hardly interested in war and martial arts. Rhaenys was everything her big sister wasn't. She was frank and curious, a fan of song and poetry, and she preferred to wield a pen than a sword. Aegon also married Rhaenys, and some sources claim that he married Visenya out of duty and Rhaenys out of desire, as she was so much more sociable and open than her older sister. Like her two siblings, she was also a dragon rider.

    Rhaenys rode Meraxes, a female dragon with silver scales and golden eyes. Meraxes was smaller than Balerion, but bigger than Vhagar, and of the dragons of the three siblings was the female who most often rose into the air with her rider, often just for the sake of flying. Meraxas was about 75 years old at the time of the young Aegon.





    The only friend of the young Aegon is Orys Baratheon, the half-brother of the Lord of Dragonstone. His father's bastard was not Targaryen, but he was raised with his siblings on Dragonstone and became Aegon's closest friend during his youth. His skill with the sword came closest to that of his half-brother, and he too was considered an excellent warrior and strategist. Orys was considered to be very sociable and helpful towards those around him, and was the most important advisor to the young Lord of Dragonstone. Like his two half-sisters, he was instrumental in the development of Aegon, and he is regarded by the maesters of the Citadel as the founder of the House of Baratheon.

    So, the prologue would be as good as finished - from tomorrow Aegon will make history in Westeros In any case, I am looking forward to the feedback so far, with so many readers you can think about including the readership in some decisions

    It is now very stable and playable if you don't mess around with the console all the time. So shouldn't be a problem for the AAR.

    Crusader Kings 2, one of the Paradox games that I loved to play but never really understood. Read all the more excitedly, especially because of LvEuF. But what struck me: both in the start post and in the current one, the 1st picture is not displayed, or is that only for me?
    It was probably due to a faulty integration, let's see if it works after I've tested something.

    Regarding Rhaenys, I would like to add that Dany came from her line.
