Ten Thousand Ships

For all you fans of fake history, we've got another taste of THE WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE up on line, to help whet your appetite for the main course.

"Ten Thousand Ships" is a brief excerpt from the history of the Rhoynar, the final fatal war between the proud princes of the river and the dragonlords of old Valyria.  You can find it on the Westeros site at

Enjoy.

(The full version, in the worldbook, will carry the tale of Princess Nymeria's odyssey considerably further, but you'll need to wait till October for that one).

That's great
Can't wait to lay my hands on this book.I'm a huge fan of fake history and I really like the great universe you created.When it comes to world-building I think you're second to Tolkien only.

If it's alright to ask,could you answer a question please?What is the origin of the name Baratheon and why did Orys use it?

I always assumed you were gonna reveal it in the Worldbook or in "Fire and Blood" in a text about the Conqueror's youth but lord varys above said that the account of the Conquest in the Worldbook (including the sample already posted) is everything you wrote about the Targaryens before the Conquest.

Re: That's great
I just read on a comment from Ran on a Forum of Ice and Fire according to which the subject of Orys's parentage would be touched in the Wordlbook.
No need to answer then I suppose.Thanks anyway!
