Pardon me for only having time to get my force assembled last week, then :D

Consider the above a comment: I'm not fully qualified to comment being as I'm still two seasons behind, but I don't remember the NW being that bow-heavy in the field...

Also, can I have an option for flame arrows?

Per conversation re the above with Rob last night:

Night's Watch can have Mounted Ranger Guard at 5 pts, as Heavy Riders who MUST take the Mounted Missiles option.

Flame arrows - yes but no in game effect. :D

Mike, the problem with the night watch is not the type of horse you get, but if you come south into the lands of the North, we're sworn to execute all deserters!!!!!
Our blades are sharp!

Hmm. Paging Matt of House Stark. I think we need to talk, not least about this liegeman of yours.

Rob - would you like a sub-board for this campaign? (Not that you can't create one yourself, of course :D)

Willas isn't much of a fighter, he's got a crippled leg and rarely leaves Highgarden. Garlan Tyrell (the 2nd son) would probably be a better choice.

There's a difference between being sent south on official business (which is fine) and going AWOL (which tends to leave you shorter by a head). Otherwise Yoren and the rest of the wandering crows would never make it back again.

Of course, if you choose not to observe that difference, that's up to you. ;D

I'm not sure the Night's Watch would appreciate being called deserters under present circumstances. :D

You may be right - so Garlan the Gallant it is.

I'd be more than happy to entertain and feed small parties of Night Watch on the Lord Commanders business.

However, braking the oath; "Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post", means they are due for the chop and maybe a bit of skining!
