As I have talked with Adamat and he is okay with me taking over House Greyjoy, I will try to return with them into the game.
House Greyjoy of Pyke
Alannys Greyjoy Age: 21 Rank: Daughter of Lord Greyjoy
One of the youngest trueborn children of Lord Greyjoy, the young woman with the name Alannys is a smart, skilled woman, luckily taken after her mother and not after her father. Though her manners could really get a little help, but that's what you get when you let a small girl grow up with lots and lots of brothers.
Alannys is flirty, smart, loves a good drink and the smell of sea and wind in her face, has a taste for riding and nearly no patience for a lot of the more womanly things in life... except perhaps luxury.
Rank: Captain of the Household Guard and Bastard Son of Lord Greyjoy
The passionate, brutal and wild Argo is one off the many offsprings of his fathers unfaithfull trysts. He comes strongly after his father, being willing to indulge in brutal combat, raids, rape, drink and wild feasts. But he IS a good warrior and skilled captain, the reason why his father has made him into the captain of his household guard. He even takes his responsibilities serious, though sometimes he indulges in drink while on duty. He also serves as part time executioner and torturer if he finds the time.
Age: 31 Rank: Son of Lord Greyjoy and Captain of his own ship
As one of the trueborn sons of Lord Greyjoy, the only one born to Gwenya Greyjoy the third wife of Lord Rodrik Greyjoy, Dagon was born with sealegs. He may be a brave warrior and loyal servant, but also not very bright and neither is he interested in being anything more than he currently is, a retainer for his father (or lap dog as some would say). Quit, stoic and also a good secret keeper, the young man is strangely one of the few Greyjoys who is faithful to his wife, a young woman, merely a girl, from a lowly House.
Ps.: This is what our sigil actually REALLY looks like

From across the Hills of Norvos, the Rhoyne, the Disputed Lands, and along Braavosi and Orange Coasts,
many a man has learned to fear soldiers of fortune, who, in times of peace, turn from rules and pitched battle to pillaging and preying upon the helpless and innocent.
Now, many of the Free Companies of Essos have come together under the banner of Maelgwn the Andal, who has become famed for his strategy of avoiding pitched battles,
endlessly harassing his many enemies through pillaging, scorching the earth, skirmishing, treachery, and fear. He has come to lead the many Free Companies due to his victorious campaigns on the Rhoyne and his most recent claim to fame with the Battle of Golden Fields.

House Durrendon was the great house of the Stormlands before the invasion of Aegon Targaryen. Lord Argilac who died while fighting the Targaryens left behind a son and a Säugetier. When his younger sister married Orys Baratheon, Robert Durrendon and his son Edric Durrendon fled to Dorne. After more than a century of exile their descendants have returned to the Stormlands to reclaim their birthright. They ask all Stormlanders to take up arms against the Baratheon pretenders and to restore the Stormking to his throne.
King Byrce Durrendon of the Stormlands
Byrce is both a deadly fighter and a good politician. These skills will undoubtedly aid him in retaking the Stormlands. Since he could talk and walk he was educated by maesters and taught to fight by knights. However true to the Durrendon words he is quick to anger and merciless when in rage. He trusts his son and heir Tommen Durrendon to help him plan battles and discuss strategy.
Total Trait points: 10
Great Commander (+2 field battles, +3 seiges)
Excellent Politician (+5 diplomacy)
Prince Tommen Durrendon
Tommen like his father was brought up to be a good fighter and ruler. He dreams of ruling over the Stormlands, but is intelligent enough to know the difficulties. He is his fathers most trusted advisor and general. He is known for his rash decisions when provocated.
Total trait points: 4
Good General (+2 field battles, +2 seiges)
You cannot play an extinct house, let alone jump in and expect to be able to overrun someone else.
Edit: Not to mention: You are not a king unless you sit on the Iron Throne. Sorry bud.
I back this decision as well. There is no canon evidence of this house existing further than the assimilation into House Baratheon through the marriage of Argilac's only child and daughter to Orys Baratheon.
Plus, as BF said, you can only be King if you sit on the Iron Throne.
You can be king if you aren't on the throne. You can seek independence by declaring yourself king in your region. However the stormkings died out I guess he could do something like zeus did and revive a dead house. However that involves starting as a Landless knight and working up.

Oh dear...... The extinct house topic is one thing, but to insert a family line by marriage of Orys Baratheon who my Orysten was named after, is just discourteous. He is the grandfather of my people. Well a couple more gens back lol.
Darryn Mudd Age 24 Darryn is descended from the old Kings of Rivers and hills. Like many of his predecessors he fought among the many mercenary companies of Essos. Eventually he came to lead his own band. He became well known in Essos as someone who would never break a contract. He fought many battles on both sides of the fight. One day Maelgwn the Andal came to ask Darryn's help in venturing to Westeros. He challenged Maelwn to a duel to see who would lead the band. Darryn lost. After a long duel that gave him a small scar across his cheek he lost. Now he follows Maelgwn to Westeros in search of money glory and hopefully a chance to reclaim his houses keep ancient keep.
2 field battles
