When the Throne room was shut and the blood bath began, the dragons seem to have sensed it. King\'s Aerys dragon Vermithor burst out of the Dragon pit and flew straight into the throne room breaking past the door. It is said that the Dragon was mad seeing the dead body of its master, it burned the everybody till all that was left was just smoke as ashes.
The coins most commonly encountered are: Half-Pennies, Pennies, Stars, Stags and Dragons; rarely does anyone have the change on levels between.
Ƭhe air was cold that fateful night, nothing but the low chirping of grasshoppers could be heard. Suddenly, as if in defiance of the silent night, a scream was heard, echoing down the halls of the King\'s throne. Moments later, five armed Knights of the Kingsguard arrived with swords in hand, only to find the throne room littered with the bodies of noblemen and other Kingsguard Sentries. At the far end of the hall, a lone man with pure white hair, stood his ground at the foot of the Iron Throne. Before King Aeryas were dozens of cloaked men in black, with curved blades shown towards the Targaryen.
The Lord Commander drew his blade and began the charge to assist the Targaryen. "Defend the King!" He shouted, as they all ran after the assassins.
Just as the Knights were in Mid-Charge, a massive beast blew straight through the glass windows, using fire to scorch everything in sight... When it was all over no one remained that wasn\'t smoldering and blackened on the floor. Even the great Targaryen Dragon was silent, a black sword protruded through his head.
The young man awoke with a start, tossing from his bed, the roars in his dreams still echoing in his head. A glimmer of sunlight shown through the window revealing a summer day in Kingslanding.
The young Knight rubbed his eyes, before looking off at the grand view of Kingslanding. He sighed after a moment, then threw on his leather coat of the Kingsguard and strapped on his sheathed blade; Dracarys. "Just another day..." He murmured as he left the Red keep, walking down into the bustling streets below. Since the death of the Lord Commander, Aeden knew he was next in line, but hadn\'t been sworn in yet. So far as he knew, the position likely had been taken up by one of the veterans... Or maybe the whole thing had been overlooked cause of how fucked up things had been those last two weeks.
When he read the parchment his heart sank. Jacaerys had just delivered the King\'s Justice on some pirates, earning him a Valyrian sword and an ugly wound to his side. His sadness turn to rage as he grabbed the messenger demanding an explanation.
"We ride for King\'s Landing. It seems I have to play a role now..." He commanded his men.
"What is it mi\'lord?" Ricord asked, Jacaerys\'s trusted commander a baseborn from the North. He served faithfully and truthfully, Jacaerys would have been dead without him.
The heir of Griffin Roost hung his head and trotted his mare "I am the Lord Regent"
Analia walked slowly in the shadows of the buildings that towered over her in the great city. She was looking around, bright eyes full of interest and amusement at the world, always in a good mood as she wandered, searching for something that she didn\'t know she wanted.
"Aeden..." Another Kingsguard nodded as the two past each other.
"Lucius." The Knight replied, walking over to the market in search of his designated advisor to escort back to the Red Keep.
Analia turned towards the market place, going more slowly, listening, eyes scanning the area around her. She was going to the market in search of a new companion, a bird perhaps. Sometimes merchants brought hawks or other rapters to the market place.
The Reyne walked past a few vendors, selling some sort of spiced wine. "Over here, try the new Valeyrian Wine, just two Silver!"
Aeden then entered a low hung tent that covered an entire block. The tent served as a sun breaker during the hot days of summer, perfect for vendors selling produce.
Analia entered the huge tent, walking slowly down the aisles of vendors, smiling softly at all the people and noises, pausing to look at new goods occasionally.
A little boy ran past the Knight, brushing past him with ease. "Whoa there, just where do you think you\'re going with that?" The Kingsguard asked as he took the boy by the arm, revealing thief. "Didn\'t think I\'d notice?"
"Let me go!" The boy squealed and attempted to peel the Knight\'s hand off his arm.
Analia turned, hearing a bit of a commotion. "Oh, leave the poor boy alone." Her tone was a bit cold as she moved towards the man, a guard by the looks of him.
The Knight looked towards the woman, then back to the boy. "Choose your targets more carefully, next time." He said to the boy, before letting him go. The boy quickly raced off, with Aeden\'s small coin pouch in tow. "... Tell me, foreigner, why stick up for him?"
"Because he is just a child. You have bigger things to be concerned about." She said, turning away again.
He grinned and followed the woman, his steps quickened to catch up. "And what might those bigger things entitle?"
"Whatever it is a King\'s man does without a king." She said, starting to walk again, towards the far end of the market, where animals where kept and sold.
"If you had to guess, what would you say a Kingsguard does then? With out a King?" He asked, persistent on keeping up with the mysterious foreign woman.
"I don\'t know. I\'m paid to listen and find out what\'s interesting, not to know what you do."
"Ah but, my question was what do you guess I do? And a guess is free." The young man smiled, stepping ahead to speak with her face to face.
"Bother women who are clearly trying to deal with their own business, apparently."
"Oh!?" He chuckled, walking backwards as he spoke. "And what-" The Knight had managed before colliding into a very large, and very burly, man. The Young Knight turned and frowned as the giant glared at him. "Do step aside..."
She laughed softly, a bright sound as she stepped lightly around the pair. "There, that\'s what a kingsguard deals with without a king."
The Young man watched as the woman walked past him and the now towering beast. "You want me to move, little knight?" The Giant spoke in a deep voice.
"... Huh, have it your way then." The Knight shrugged, then drew his blade on the Giant, pointing it right at his heart. "What\'s say we settle this another time, huh?"
"... I look forward to it, little man." The Burly man grunted, then took his leave.
"Now, where did you run off to?" Aeden murmured as he sheathed his blade, before spotting the woman\'s silver hair in the distance. "Ah... Damnit."
She had reached the stall of a man with many animals in cages or chained to posts, foxes and dogs, cats and chickens. And several raptors, hawks and falcons.
The man looked up to the woman and instantly began advertising costs for such creatures. "We got all kinds of birds, dogs, and and cats, only ten silvers.!"
"I\'m just looking." She said, tone dry, reaching out to stroke a particularly fierce looking hawk.
"Ah, isn\'t she a beauty?" He asked, before licking his lips in excitement. "How\'s about I sell her for five silver, huh?... Four?"
