BLOOD AND FIRE
a Story of Black Dragons
I greet you all once more to an AAR of mine. This time, we won't be writing about vikings and Russians, but dragons, High Valyrians, and Westerosi, as we follow the story of Daemon Blackfyre and his descendants. The style will remain pretty much the same, a narrative with hopefully interesting images, as I love editing and using as many as possible.
Even though I suspect a majority of members in the community are at least familiar with the work of GRRM, I'll try my best to explain the universe as we go through it. This is by no means me saying I'm a specialist in the lore, quite the opposite, actually(haven't even read The World of Ice & Fire). Most of my "in-depth" knowledge of the period we'll be in comes from the Wiki, so if you spot something wrong, please do tell, but, as we haven't exactly gotten the definitive book on Targaryen history yet, I'll be allowing myself some room for creativity. To that end, this won't be an Ironman run, nor will I block usage of the console, as it is a great tool - if used correctly - for narrative-like AARs.
For mods, I'm of course using the Game of Thrones Mod, enhanced with Novus Graphicus for AGOT, AGOT Interface Overhaul, Dynamic COAs, Realistic Battles, Wight's Nicknames, Sin's Dragon Tamer Laws, Start Feud, and DLC Portraits. Most of these can be found in the mod's forums or Steam Workshop.
As I'm currently ending my semester in college with finals early next month, my time will be a bit restricted, but I intend to pick things up during vacations. Also, sorry again if any of you had interest in my last AAR, I'll definitely revisit that period in the future. Hope you guys understand.
