Aerys the Mad King, the Honorable, Brilliant and Fertile (CK2:AGOT Mod playthrough)

As many readers will already know, I'm a devoted fan of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series and less so of the HBO series loosely based on that book series (A) Game of Thrones.

What some readers will not know is that I am also a passionate RTS gamer and that Crusader Kings II has a Game of Thrones mod that is extremely accurate in its portrayal of the ASOIAF mythos.

Previous campaigns:
King Stannis (Dragonstone)
Queen Daenerys (Qarth)
King Aegon VI
Lord Eddard Stark (Robert's Rebellion)
Prince Rhaegar Targaryen (Robert's Rebellion)
King Aegon the Conqueror (historical playthrough with events)
King Aegon the Conqueror (Side with Tyrosh but sabotage them, allowing Archon Honorio to take Tyrosh, and slowly but surely take Myr and Lys, conquer Westeros historically but without the events, do not convert to Faith of the Seven)
King Jaehaerys

Current campaign:
King Aerys the Mad (still alive as of this posting, well into my 60's)
Marriages: 4 (Sister-wife, Princess of Volantis, Daughter of Maegyr Freeholder,  17 y/o Velaryon)
Religion: Valyrian (temporary conversion, for wives in case Rhaegar or my sister-wife dies too early and also Volantene alliance) - return to the Seven after winning the war.
Children: 22 born, 9 legal/13 legitimized bastards
Notable children: Lord Paramount Rhaegar of the Riverlands, Viserys (married to Arianne, the heir to Dorne), Lord Paramount Orys of the Stormlands, King Jaekar of the Stepstones, Lord Aelor of Crackclaw Point (5 territories), Lady Paramount Jeyne of the Westerlands (born a bastard, married to Tyrion)
Notable grandchildren: Lord Paramount Aegon of the Vale, Lady Paramount Rhaenys (married to LP Renly Baratheon, LP Artys Corbray of the North)

 Robert's Rebellion:
Removed Rhaegar from the frontlines, hire mercenaries and march directly to meet Robert in the Stormlands. Defeat him there. Wait for the Reach armies to make there way to me, move our combined forces to defeat the Riverlanders and Valemen, wait for the Northerners to land, defeat them. Let the Reachmen attack various smaller armies in the Riverlands and send men to take Riverrun, the Eyrie, Winterfell, Storm's End. Dornishmen arrive to keep King's Landing safe, move Lewyn Martell off the field (he gets killed easily), many declare for me due to my victories. Jon Connington slays Robert. With many victories, Stannis surrenders. I affirm him as Lord Paramount of the Stormlands. Forgive most of the lesser lords and Eddard Stark, do not forgive the Vale or the Riverlands - leading to their independence, which is quashed. The Tullys are mostly killed, leaving young Edmure in charge. He surrenders. The Vale is defeated as well. The North decides to rebel, which the young Tully joins. The North is defeated with the Neck and Umbers siding with me. I send Eddard Stark to the Wall (like a smart King) and keep Catelyn Tully my hostage. I give the Blackfish Riverrun but withhold the Riverlands title from him. Stannis raises his banners and I move my armies once again to take him out. He loses (5 Kingdoms vs 1). I send him to the Wall and take the Stormlands from him as well. I leave Renly with Storm's End and betrothe him to Rhaenys. With this I bring peace to Westeros. Stannis eventually gains a command within the Night's Watch, as does Eddard Stark. Varys, once an ally ends up trying to assassinate me Kevan style - so I send him to the wall where he quickly rises up the ladder (he is Lord Commander as of right now).

Sister-wife dies of depression, Princess of Volantis made first-wife. Convert back to The Seven. Orys has been born at last. I develop my court and The Red Keep, slowly but surely expanding my realm. Eventually, after a series of conflicts my children and grandchildren gain their roles above.

To be continued.

Important Quotes

"Reuven, there's a guy that certainly knows more than I do" - Dr. Robert M. Price.

"The Earth is the cradle of humanity, but mankind cannot stay in the cradle forever." - Konstantin Tsiolkovsky
"In general, the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other." - Voltaire
"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe simply because it has been handed down for many generations.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is written in Holy Scriptures.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of Teachers, elders or wise men
Believe only after careful observation and analysis, when you find that it agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all. Then accept it and live up to it."
-- Siddhartha Gautama, The Buddha
“If while on your way you meet no one your equal or better, steadily continue on your way alone. There is no fellowship with fools.”
― Dhammapada, v. 61

“Never forget who you are for surely the world won't. Make it your strength, then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it and, it can never be used to hurt you." - Tyrion Lannister

"I do not think Jesus Christ ever existed. I would believe in the Christian religion if it dated from the beginning of the world. That Socrates, Plato, the Mohammedan, and all the English should be damned is too absurd. Jesus was probably put to death, like many other fanatics who proclaimed themselves to be prophets or the expected Messiah. Every year there were many of these men." - Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte

"Be careful in your relations with the government; for they draw no man close to themselves except for their own interests. They appear as friends when it is to their advantage, but they do not stand by a man in his time of stress." - Pirkei Avot (Chapters of the Fathers)

 Zhuangzi said the world "does not need governing; in fact it should not be governed,"

"I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism." - Ronald Reagan

"Ron Paul is one of the outstanding leaders fighting for a stronger national defense. As a former Air Force officer, he knows well the needs of our armed forces, and he always put them first. We need to keep him fighting for our country." - President Ronald Reagan about [Future] President Ron Paul

"Colonialism... is genocide. This crime is perpetrated under our eyes every day, making accomplices out of those who do not denounce it." ~ Jean-Paul Sartre

"Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have." - Ronald Reagan

"Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem." -Ronald Reagan

non nobis solum nati sumus ortusque nostri partem patria vindicat, partem amici ("We are not born, we do not live for ourselves alone; our country, our friends, have a share in us") - Cicero from Plato

You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once.
-- Robert Heinlein

"The elevation of the negro race from slavery to the full rights of citizenship is the most important political change we have known since the adoption of the Constitution of 1787." - President James Garfield

" ...there was no middle ground for the negro race between slavery and equal citizenship. There can be no permanent disfranchised peasantry in the United States. Freedom can never yield its fullness of blessings so long as the law or its administration places the smallest obstacle in the pathway of any virtuous citizen" - - President James Garfield

"The man who can look upon a crisis without being willing to offer himself upon the altar of his country is not fit for public trust." - President Millard Fillmore

"The Constitution of the United States was made not merely for the generation that then existed, but for posterity- unlimited, undefined, endless, perpetual posterity." - Senator Henry Clay

'I’d rather vote for what I want and not get it, than for what I don’t want and get it.'

--Eugene V. Debs

'The only thing worse than soldiers dying in vain are more soldiers dying in vain.'

--Mike Gravel

"A fetus does not have a right to be in the womb of any woman, but is there by her permission. This permission may be revoked by the woman at any time, because her womb is part of her body... There is no such thing as the right to live inside the body of another, i.e. there is no right to enslave... a woman is not a breeding pig owned by the state (or church). Even if a fetus were developed to the point of surviving as an independent being outside the pregnant woman's womb, the fetus would still not have the right to be inside the woman's womb." - Capitalism Magazine 

"One method of destroying a concept is by diluting its meaning. Observe that by ascribing rights to the unborn, i.e., the nonliving, the anti-abortionists obliterate the rights of the living." - Ayn Rand

The states are not free, under the guise of protecting maternal health or potential life, to intimidate women into continuing pregnancies. ~Justice Harry A. Blackmun, Roe v. Wade, 22 January 1973

"The spectacle of what is called religion, or at any rate organised religion, in India and elsewhere, has filled me with horror and I have frequently condemned it and wished to make a clean sweep of it. Almost always it seemed to stand for blind belief and reaction, dogma and bigotry, superstition, exploitation and the preservation of vested interests." Jawaharlal Nehru (First Prime Minister of India)

I wish to declare with all earnestness that I do not want any religious ceremonies performed for me after my death. I do not believe in such ceremonies, and to submit to them, even as a matter of form, would be hypocrisy and an attempt to delude ourselves and others. Jawaharlal Nehru (First Prime Minister of India)
“I have never, in all my life, not for one moment, been tempted toward religion of any kind. The fact is that I feel no spiritual void. I have my philosophy of life, which does not include any aspect of the supernatural and which I find totally satisfying. I am, in short, a rationalist and believe only that which reason tells me is so.” - Isaac Asimov

I am not an atheist. An atheist is someone who has compelling evidence that there is no Judeo-Christian-Islamic God. I am not that wise, but neither do I consider there to be anything approaching adequate evidence for such a god. Why are you in such a hurry to make up your mind? Why not simply wait until there is compelling evidence?”- Carl Sagan to Robert Pope, of Windsor, Ontario, Oct. 2, 1996

To Stephen Jay Gould, Dec. 18, 1989, after a newspaper editorial referred to Sagan and Gould as “dogmatic” on the question of whether there is a God:
“Do you understand how – assuming either of us ever did say ‘The universe can be explained without postulating God’ – this could be understood as dogmatic? I often talk about the ‘God hypothesis’ as something I’d be fully willing to accept if there were compelling evidence; unfortunately, there is nothing approaching compelling evidence. That attitude, it seems to me, is undogmatic.” - Carl Sagan

Dr. Sun Yat-sen, founder of the Republic of China, held admirations for the Jewish people and Zionism, and saw parallels between the persecution of Jews and the domination of China by the Western powers. He stated, "Though their country was destroyed, the Jewish nation has existed to this day... [Zionism] is one of the greatest movements of the present time. All lovers of democracy cannot help but support wholeheartedly and welcome with enthusiasm the movement to restore your wonderful and historic nation, which has contributed so much to the civilization of the world and which rightfully deserve [sic] an honorable place in the family of nations."

"It is written in the Holy Qur'an that God granted the Land of Israel to the Children of Israel and ordered them to settle therein (Qur'an, Sura 5:21) and that before the Last Day He will bring the Children of Israel to retake possession of their Land, gathering them from all different countries and nations (Qu'ran, Sura 17:104). Consequently, as a Muslim who abides by the Qur'an, I believe that opposing the existence of the State of Israel means opposing a Divine decree."
- Sheik Abdul Paleizo

In 1873, Shah of Persia Nasser al-Din Shah Qajar met with British Jewish leaders, including Sir Moses Montefiore, during his journey to Europe. At that time, the Persian king suggested that the Jews buy land and establish a state for the Jewish people.

"The resources of the country [Palestine] are still virgin soil and will be developed by the Jewish immigrants (...) we have seen the Jews from foreign countries streaming to Palestine from Russia, Germany, Austria, Spain, and America. The cause of causes could not escape those who had a gift of deeper insight. They knew that the country was for its original sons [abna'ihi-l-asliyin], for all their differences, a sacred and beloved homeland. The return of these exiles [jaliya] to their homeland will prove materially and spiritually an experimental school for their brethren who are with them in the fields, factories, trades and all things connected to the land." - Hussein bin Ali, Sharif of Mecca

"No Muslim has the right to interfere with the gathering of the Jews in Israel, as this is the will of God himself". - Dr. Tawfik Hamid


The Silver Rule:
"Do not do to others what you would not have them do to you." - Hillel the Elder

I am not one who was born in the possession of knowledge; I am one who is fond of antiquity, and earnest in seeking it there.
    - Confucius, The Confucian Analects

Be Content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
- Lao Tzu

An honest man is always a child.
- Socrates

As for me, all I know is that I know nothing.
- Socrates

There is a famous story in which the Kaiser asks Bismarck, "Can you prove the existence of God?" Bismarck replies, "The Jews, your majesty. The Jews."

In the final analysis,
for the believer there are no questions,
and for the non-believer there are no answers.
— Chofetz Chaim

If a man calls you an ass, the best way is to take no notice of it; but if you are called so by two or more persons take the bit into your own mouth.--Genesis Rabbah 45

"Sometimes even to live is an act of courage." - Lucius Annaeus Seneca
