PLOTLINE
Realm of the Seven is a Game of Thrones site based around 250 years prior to the events that take place in the first novel. It is an alternate universe setting based on the consequences of the death of King Jaehaerys I The Wise (for more information, check here.) Certain characters and figures are based on canonical lore and events. However, most of the characters on ROTS are OC based.

In 50 AC, the Faith and the crown were in a stte tension after the end of the horrible rule of Maegor I Targaryen. There were many who doubted the rulership of the Targaryens. The Sept of the Seven and the Faith Militant, spurred by the absolute cruelty of the now deceased King Maegor I, sought to depose the rule of Jaehaerys I. This culminated in the assassination of the young king, whose actions prior to the king's death had separated Westeros into seven kingdoms.

By doing so, Jaehaerys removed the significant point of tension between the Faith and House Targaryen. However, there had been widespread criticism concerning the divergence of the realm. With the borders having returned to new houses, the issue now remains as to the political fate of independence forged in the seven kingdoms. House Targaryen is still disliked immensely. Vaelys I, the new king, has maintained peace between the seven kingdoms, and attempts to currently unify realm into a single kindgom.

It is now 52 AC, the realm of Westeros is now dependent on the players partaking in the game of thrones. Take charge and shape the political sphere of the world. Or merely attempt to survive and thrive in world that is divided by religious, political, and cultural differences.
