Here in Westeros newcomers come from far and wide to seek fortune, fame, and titles. People who are new to the land such as you need to follow a few steps in order to become a person that others can interact and talk with while journeying the land trying to accomplish one of the things listed above that men and women all battle with swords and wit for within Westeros.
The first step that you need to make is to go to the registration thread here and make a few things known about your characters and family. Some main things that you need to describe are what they look like, what their attitude is like, and what they are likely to act like. If your family is one of noble descent you may also wish to show a picture of their crest and invoke their words.
The next step you will take is to create an account at The Iron Bank of Braavos so that your characters may receive income, this is one of the most important steps after showing your family and characters because in Westeros money and greed run the world much more than honor and virtue. When creating this account you shall have to start the money you would receive if you had just been promoted to the position you are holding and this is true of all your characters. They shall all receive Dragons to do what you wish with.
After you have made a Vault at the Iron Bank you will want to make a thread describing your lodgings and holdings so that we can know how mighty you live, and where to call upon you should the need arise. Here a picture is appreciated and a small description of what the inside looks like and the layout so that we know where visitors shall be waiting and such.
Now finally we reach the last and most fun step, this is the step where your family becomes known and you start fighting through the daring cunning world of Westeros. The last step is to jump in and join some role playing, it is here that fortunes will be made and lost, battles won and lost, names made and disgraced. This is the step where your character gains a reputation and you build an identity.
As you are beginning into the final, or first step I would suggest you read the rules regarding Westeros, as these rules are set and strict, these rules are what decides the winner of a pitched battle and how much money a merchant should make when purchasing an enterprise. You should read and remember these ancient rules of Westeros because they are what shall govern your actions and decide your fate while you still survive.
Now that we've told you what to do and given you the ropes of how to interact in Westeros I have but one thing to say. The year is 174 AL, and the fate of Westeros is in your hands.
