"Family, Duty, Honor"
It is the year 185 AC and House Tully is barely standing. The great and beloved Lord and Lady of Riverrun has been murdered in their sleep. Now, all that is left of the family is their children. Innocent and inexperienced from their shielded upbringing, they are forced to face the reality that their family is a political target. That they are the last bastion between the house and annihilation. They do however not stand unprotected, for all the Riverlands mourn with them, and the murder has ignited a fervor and loyalty stronger than anywhere else in the Seven Kingdoms. The wise and the strong have gathered, ready to serve the House Tully no matter the cost.
Family! Duty! Honor!
House Tully is a house of the people. They are known to be closer to the common folk than any other of the great houses. They have, at times, even been willing to marry with the peasantry. This is also the family they value above all else. A Tully would rather watch the world burn, than let harm come to their relatives. This romantic ideology is however also what has led the house to borderline poverty. Their kindness and naivety has made the Tully’s economically weak and somewhat puny in the eyes of the other houses. Although, it is common knowledge that you do not invade their Riverlands. For while they may have lost battles, they have withstanded every war.

The Wise Old Fool
True, honorable and old. Yourth of House Derry is a man of traditions and real ideals, not like the generations of youths since, which have lost both manners and care. He is just as proud as he is loyal to House Tully. With the deaths of the Lord and Lady of Riverrun he has taken it upon himself to teach the Tully children the honorable values of old, and nothing shall stand in the way of education, least of all Targaryen politics. As a matter of fact, a Kingsmoot is a perfect chance to give the youngins’ some REAL experience.
