King Joffrey Baratheon was sitting on the Iron Throne listening to the demands of the population and beside him was Lady Sansa Stark, everything seemed very annoying until:

"Your Grace, your Uncle Stannis's emissary has arrived."

"Well, let him in then."

With that the doors of the Throne Room were opened and the man entered.

To:Emissary of Stannis@Shadowlord

Welcome to King's Landing, it's a huge pleasure to welcome you here, do not worry, you're under my protection while here, nothing bad will happen to you, that's for granted. Well then ... what does my Uncle Stannis propose ? .

War was everywhere in Westeros. Great armies had been formed and were marching across the land as families suffered and men fought and died. Alliances were formed and broken. Men rallied behind Kings as each sought to bring the realm into their fold.

In the Riverlands, many were shocked when the victorious armies of Lory Tywin Lannister suddenly withdrew when it was close to the very gates of Riverrun. Several days passed as the army under Ser Edmure Tully, finally received a message from Lord Tywin was leaving and that the “war” was over and for the Tullys to join them against Stannis and Renly.

Not believing this for a moment the army slowly advanced reclaiming land lost and helping those that they could from the various attacks launched by the Mountain. Further North the armies of Lord Robb Stark advanced to the Twins but after stern negotiations with Lord Walder Frey, Robb rebuffed old Walder and instead turned his army to march down the Kingsroad and turning down the Riveroad marched his host to join with the Riverlands army before Acorn Hall. They found ash and flame as they advanced, Tywin’s troops burning everything before them as they moved south.

Tywin didn’t stop there but moved through the northern Reach, burning the lands of House Lowther and House Norcross as he marched along the Gold Road, moving into the Crownlands and meeting up with the levies forming there. The Army grew as more houses of the Crownlands rallied their troops, and fields and villages burned behind the angry Lion.

However back in the Westerlands the army under Ser Kevan Lannister soon had its hands full as thousands of Ironborn landed on the shores of the Westerlands from Feastfires to the Banefort. Ironborn Reavers raided various coastal villages and holding where they could, though fighting broke out all over. In some places the Ironborn got the best of things as many of the Westerlands soldiers with Lord Tywin and Ser Jaime, in others they were sounded defeated as the well trained troops of the Westerlands engaged and pushed back the raiders. War had come to the people of the Westerlands.

Further south King Renly fumed as more and more houses deserted him for Stannis. Houses Dondarrion, House Selmy and House Caron quickly allied themselves with Stannis, after his victory at the Battle of Crow’s Nest. Slowly he began forming his lumbering army of Reachers and those Stormlords still loyal and began making his way into the Stormlands. One way or the other a battle between the brothers was going to happen, which would be victorious would remain to be seen.

The cart kept moving and occasionally some screeches and clicks could be found. A beast, perhaps?

"As you command". His face was a mocking smirk.
He turned towards the two men following him, who finally opened the cart after a motion of his head.

With the final timber removed, the thing inside quickly crawled out of the cart and ran towards the Lord Commander.
The two men held it firm from behind while the man in front, the leader, kept hitting its bare and exposed chest with a mace made of what appeared to be bones of mammoths.
After several hits, the creature didn't appear to cease its unthinking rage. Even as its chest was now separated from its body and even while its head was now separated from its neck, it kept crawling while the man's foot kept it still.
"BURN IT" he shouted to one of his comrades.
One of the men stretched one of his arms towards the cart and picked a torch and, with it, began to set fire to the creature while his comrade and the "leader" took their distances.

Screeching and screaking in what almost appeared to be an agony, the creature finally "died".

The man panted a few moments, then he turned again towards Mormont.

"We have an issue up north". Despite what he had seen, the smirk was still there. "Some... people decided that our dead can't even stay dead, and so now we're putting as much distance as we can between us and them. Wherever they see life, they kill it and bring it back like this". For a moment his gaze turned again towards the dead creature, and for a moment the face of that man showed some weakness. He appeared to feel some kind of attachment towards it. A dead relative, maybe, or a lost love.
"We are fleeing, "lord Commander"" he almost spat the word "and if you do not allow us past this thing, this will be our fate, and eventually yours as well, and of everyone past this gods-damned wall if they manage to get past it".

(OOC: I apologize for missing this, be better late then never.))

Lord Commander Jeor Mormont recoiled as he watched the scene play out before him. "What kind of magic is this?" He had heard the rumors. All of the watch had. Men had even deserted because of it. But this.. was it true?

"Tell me plan Wildling. The army Mance has formed, does it march on the wall? And.. is it to be rid of these.. things?"

Dorne, Sunspear city

Oberyn

"A strange atmosphere ... I also feel like a brother, but I certainly do not let myself be conditioned by these events that seem to have been created in art, an unexpectedly crumpled sparrow is certainly not a divine message though many would believe this!" Oberyn added observing the sky over the two brothers. They were brothers, but never so different in the way of acting and not just that. Even their thinking differed in many things.

Oberyn

"At the king's landing, the new sovereign has not received much sympathy from his people, and the same mother-in-law Cersei is not very happy with this, it is said, however, that behind the king there is the boy's grandfather and not only to command Indeed, otherwise we do not explain the news that comes to us, and the Tyrell home seems to want to further improve its position, this could be a future problem for Dorne Province! " Oberyn concluded, keeping his eyes fixed toward the sky, which became increasingly stormy as the hours passed.

Doran

"For the time being, the Baratheon House and the House Lannister, though powerful, are not a danger for our province, our home, the Martell House has a well-trained and motivated army and they also know that attacking is a safe defeat!" Doran replied as the wind scattered their hair.

Dorne, the Sunspears Palace


Time was spent at Dorne and after that night Prince Doran had decided that Dorne's fate had to be safeguarded in an even more intense manner. Those ships that were the fleet of his rule had been destroyed, sunk by the storm that had fallen down without any notice. There were many hundreds of sailors who were experts in trying to save the boats, and now after the tragedy, the death toll, the recovery of their bodies, and the cleansing of ship fragments, was the pride of his family. the news that the Martell fleet had been destroyed had to be kept at the expense of exterminating anyone even loved ones. For this reason, Oberyn had been busy with everything. Cleaning was in progress, the prince was looking at them from the royal palace, aware that they had nothing more than a well-trained infantry, opposed to their neighbors and if we wanted their own vassals too.

Ellaria

"A great loss is the destruction of the fleet, I do not want this news to leap out before time, in that case we should attack our neighbors and even if our vassals and reduce them to silence you do not even believe Doran Prince?" he asked the figure just appeared next to Sunspear's lord.

Doran

"Ellaria Sand did not hear you coming, your step becomes more delicate every day and sometimes I would not be surprised that you a day on my brother's order, do not detach my head, still skilled in the use of the sword and not just you ! " Doran replied as Ellaria smiled replying.

Ellaria Sand

"I only serve Martell House, you have nothing to fear!"replied    the  woman.
