The men of the Watch remember, however, and their castles are filled with untold numbers of books documenting their lives,histories, and challenges.
A winter came that lasted for decades, and within it, a darkness that lasted a generation. Famine andfear gripped the land. During this time, the Others came from the far North with their thin blades and icy magic,battling the First Men and the Children of the Forest, pushing them southward. The Great Wall was built. In the wake of the alliance between the First Men and the hero Azor Ahai and the childrenof the forest who threw back the Others, Brandon Stark, also called Bran the Builder, created a great wall made of ice,stone, and magic to keep the Others sealed in the north.
Stark becomes the first King of the North. The name of the first LordCommander is lost to the ravages of time.
The Night King. He declares himself king with her as his queen and binds the men under his command with sorcery. The wildlingsand the Starks band together to destroy him; once they do, it is learned that he was sacrificing the Brothers under hiscommand to the Others.
His name is stricken from the annals of the Watch forever. The Starks are forced to intervene to put a stop to it. Snowgate is renamed Queensgate. Deep Lake is commissioned and financed by Queen Alysanne. There is a strict gender divide within the novels; althoughthere are characters who manage to step outside their prescribed socialroles, the society usually mercilessly extracts a cost for doing so. It is unashamedly male, from top to bottom.
The story of Danny Flint, the young womanwho dressed as a man to take the Black and ended up raped and murderedfor it, stands as a stern warning against such things. If the players wish tostrictly emulate the books, then there cannot be female characters inthe Watch. Women live in the Gift and fight among the free folk inthe lands beyond, but they will never stand watch on the Wall. Thisbook was written with the novels in mind, and thus has held to thatstricture.
That being said, keep in mind the cardinal rule of roleplaying: HaveFun. Maybe Queen Alysanne has sponsored a sisterhood to hold hercastle, standing separate from the Black Brothers yet equal to them instatus. Regardless of what you and your group choose, however, ASong of Ice and Fire will never portray a world with gender equality; theconcept is simply not present within the books. Of course, every rulehas its exceptions, and player characters are nothing if not exceptional.
Make your choices with that in mind. Songs and ballads were filled with charactersfrom the black brotherhood. With barelyenough men to garrison Castle Black, they hold three castles along theWall, always keeping their eyes to the Far North. Meanwhile, beyond the Wall, the wildlings grow bolder, ever probingalong the long fortification for any weak or unguarded spot theycan find.
Rumors spread ofa leader, a new King-beyond-the-Wall capable of leading the free folkagainst the brotherhood. Beings once whispered about in hushed voicesor dismissed as legend have been sighted in the wilds, and are provingthemselves to be far too real. The Others. They aremen from all walks of life, bound together by oath and mutual trust intoone of the most skilled fighting forces in Westeros. A threadbare bandof brothers, dedicated to defending a land that ignores them from animplacable and limitless foe.
Their stories are tales of courage in the faceof death, of reformed pirates who become lords, and of bastards whobecome commanders. They are stories of new beginnings, of old regrets,of refuge, vengeance, and desperation.
And they are the stories of theSouth, because despite its remoteness, even the Wall is not immunefrom the Game of Thrones. Not like the stories your wetnurse told you. Well, piss on the stories and piss on your wet nurse. Some come because they have no choice, some because they have no other option, andsome for no reason that others can discern. The Game of Thrones is about loyalties, bloodlines, and inheritance. Legacies are power, andmatrimony and progeny is how these things are secured. That sort of life is not ideal for everyone, though.
It is clear from the novels that homosexuality is not viewed in anything like the way modern society sees them. Close same-sex relationshipsare common and expected throughout society. Physical intimacy in those relationships is also common and expected. Sexual intimacyis an act, not an identity, and exists apart from and alongside same-sex bonding within Westerosi society.
In short, however a man stays warm on the Wall is, frankly, his own business, so long as all parties are consenting. There are more importantthings to worry about when the Long Night comes. Taking the BlackThe Kingsroad, easily the most important stretch of road in Westeros,spears north through the land and carries men and trade goodsalmost the full length of the seven kingdoms.
Few travel the full thousandleagues of the great road. Past Winterfell, the woods hang heavy over the road and the air growsever colder until the Kingsroad passes over the Last River. The Frostfangsgrow to dominate the western sky and the ground gives way to foothillsand granite. Most who make the trip do so in the company of one or moreSworn Brothers of the Watch. Once he hasreached Castle Black to begin his training, only one thing in their futureis clear: he will spend the rest of his days, however long or short a spanthat may be, on the Wall.
With the wealth and warmth of the South available to them, whywould any man surrender family and liberty for the cold and ice of theWall? What drives a man to forsake all he has in favor of a lonely deathat the end of the civilization? There are as many reasons as there are menof the Watch , but like the peoples of Westeros, they can be broken downinto two rough groups: highborn and lowborn.
Few lowborn have much choice in their trip to the wall. The majoritytravel north as criminals, sentenced to take the black rather thanbe executed.
A criminal deserter is killed as soon as he can be found, hispardon forfeit when he flees his duty. Some lowborn recruits come of their own volition, or leap at theopportunity when it is offered. The tales of the Wall as a place where aman succeeds on his merits entice men who want a better future.
Forthem, the restrictions of the Oath are no great hardship. Easier still to abandontitle and lands that have never been his. In exchange a commonerwho joins the Brotherhood gains things he never had access to before:education, a warm bed, and three meals a day.
It is the reputation of the Wall itself that keeps lowborn men fromflooding the Far North. Some common-born families grieve for their sons in the Watch as though death had already claimed them. It is a sad yet appropriateresponse given that they will neither see nor hear from the child again,and even in death his grave will be a lonely marker on the stony frozenground of the Far North.
The chance, howeverslim, that they might forget their past drives some men to take theblack. This idealized image of the romantic allure of the Wall resonatedin the old sagas and ballads, filled with tales of wronged men who havelost everything and don the black to be born anew.
Under an assumedname, devoid of all possessions, a driven man can build a good life forhimself even if he can never again leave the service of the Watch. Some nobility who take the black do so for the same reasons as theirlowborn brothers: it is an acceptable choice over their own death. Some lords—especially inthe North—still respect the Wall and the men who serve there, and8.
Despite the fact that the brotherhood welcomes the experience andtalent, these great knights and fallen lords make up less of the Watch as the years pass, and have dwindled to the point where they numberfewer than one in every fifty men. Even though the brotherhoodis ostensibly a meritocracy, it is also true that those with useful talentshave more chance to advance. A noble trained in the arts of war faresbetter with a sword than a common-born man whose hands were usedto hoe and plow.
Some nobles have no family to forsake. Remnants of destroyedhouses, they take the black out of pride, or honor, or sheer stubbornnessand continue on when their bloodline is lost. Such a man carrieson, holding his family name in his heart even if he never utters it inthe presence of his brothers, taking comfort in the fact that he stilllives.
With nothing left but the Watch , they giveeverything to their adopted family and often burn with fierce loyaltyto the brotherhood. Among these families it is still considered amatter of pride to send a younger son to join the black brothers. Othersecond- and third-born children grow tired of the political machinationsand the great game, choosing to travel to the Wall of their ownaccord.
For some, the brotherhood becomes more of a family than thefalse smiles and hidden agendas of their abandoned homes. For sons of noble houses south of the Trident, being condemnedto take the black is seen as harsh punishment suitable for criminals andlowborn. Safe in the warmth of their great cities and castles, they givelittle credence to the stories of wildlings and the Others. Tales of suchcreatures are dismissed as the fantasies of peasants and the wanderingminds of men forced to stare too long into snow-swept wastes.
Whenthe Sworn Brothers come south to seek recruits, they are given the runof prisons and poorhouses, but it is rare that an anointed knight orhighborn lord joins their retinue for the journey to the Far North.
Some recruits are part of both worlds and neither. Numerous bastardsare sent to serve the Wall. For bastards weary of their treatment, the Watch can become a welcome home where their lineage is irrelevant and soonforgotten. Some wildling women, abandoned by their men and unsure howthey will feed their babes abandon their children at the edge of the9.
Rangers occasionally bringback young orphans found while ranging, and these wildling childrenare brought up as members of the black brotherhood. For those who try to leveragetheir past, the adage of the nail holds true: the one who sticks outThe Mechanics of Traininggets hammered flat.
Furthermore, the woods of the Far North are vast, and life onthe Wall can be dangerous.

Он снова говорил с этим американцем, и если все прошло, как было задумано, то Танкадо сейчас уже нет в живых, а ключ, который он носил с собой, изъят. В том, что он, Нуматака, в конце концов решил приобрести ключ Энсея Танкадо, крылась определенная ирония. Токуген Нуматака познакомился с Танкадо много лет .
