The official start of beta roleplay will take place on November 11th at 2100 CET (1500 EST). This will entail the victorious arrival at King’s Landing of a fleet of ships under the command of Lord Jonothor Arryn. While King Daeron, Oakenfist, Lord Tyrell, and others remain in Dorne attempting to pacify the country following the Submission of Sunspear, this small portion of the fleet returns with the Dornish royal hostages, the princes Aegon and Aemon Targaryen, and many other notables from the campaign as well as wounded knights and soldiers.
If you have yet to obtain a character, there’s still a chance that you may be able to do so in time to attend this roleplay. If not, plenty of other exciting roleplay is sure to follow, and we will keep accepting and processing applications throughout the beta period. To see some examples of the roleplay that has come out of the unofficial start a few days ago, have a look at the logs page.
To get a character, start by selecting a few likely prospects from the family trees. Then log on to the game and check out the availability of these characters by typing +cdb <name>. If a character is listed as Open and as an NPC, it can be applied for. If it is listed as Restricted or Limited instead of Open, it may not be available, so please contact one of the Admin before filling out an application. It is, in fact, generally a good idea to speak to the Admin about character choices before sending in an application.
