all right, so here's the thinking:
Chapter 3 will open up this weekend. You can finish Chapter 2 threads if you want/need to, on the whole we're moving on and skipping the court to Highgarden. You can time posts for on the trip, they'll just fall between the chapters, and if you have threads later that require knowledge from those between-times threads put a link to them on the later post.
the trip to Highgarden will take about two weeks, because the king isn't lingering around and doing the Stately Procession thing. Jaehaerys is still in mourning, so there are no feasts, no parades, no celebrations, no tourneys. SAD DRAGONS ARE SAD PANDAS OK?
You can enact posts set during Chapter 2, but you'll need to make that clear in the When portion.
Remember the mourning announcements?
THE COURT: mourning dress until March. No one is wearing anything but black until November 18. After that you've got token mourning signs (black band, black ribbon, whatever). The only ones to get out of it are the Kingsguard who get black armbands, and the actual royals who can wear white as a show of grief.
THE REST: If you are anywhere near the king you'd better have on a token of mourning until October 18ish.
CHAPTER TWO ENDS ON: SEPTEMBER 1, 500AL
CHAPTER THREE BEGINS: OCTOBER 1, 500AL. The court will be arriving in Highgarden on that day, and hopefully a month is enough time for Selester to have his household all ready for the minor invasion of nobles including one emo king and three horse-sized dragons. Again there won't be feasts, but in courtly tradition that is gotten around by having non-feasting feasts. You know, it totally counts as not a feast if there are less than ten courses and no musicians. That's just dinner.
At least that's the way it stands right now. Like always, guys, you can let me know if you have some other ideas or want to see something changed. This is your game too, yes?
