The Kingdom of Stor is a relatively large, and powerful Gothic Kingdom located in northern Westros, and dominated the lands south of the Frostfang Mountains. The capital of Stor is one of the largest cities of Westros, and from this massive city they have a large population that controls the region north of Dole. The Kingdom of Stor is a Dragonoph land, and following a small Sigmarite rise years ago, this small Sigmar worshipping part of the population has never really increased in population, and Dragonoph has been the main religion for most of its history with the king himself crowned in a Dragonoph Temple.

Since the founding of the Kingdom of Stor the realm has been ruled over by the members of House Stor of whom have held control over the kingdom with an ironfist for that entire time. House Stor has bred into many other noble houses in the kingdom, and these families with blood ties are held in great esteem, and have been given powerful positions within the kingdom. Underneath House Stor are two other high level houses in the form of House Ereham, and House Loine of which House Ereham controls the large castle of Castle Aeron and the lands that surround it, while House Loine controls the port of Storhold which is the largest port of the realm of Stor and because of this they have become wealthy from this.

The Kingdom of Stor is dominated by the Dornish that are an offshoot of the Dolisians and have become extremely numerous as the region of Stor has been rather isolated and kept away from conflict for the majority of its history. These Dolisians entered Stor during the Dole Civil War and they would attack into the Atlantians that were severely weakened during this time, but instead of destroying the Atlantians the leadership of House Stor gave the Atlantians peace and the two would grow together. As the Dolians moved into Stor in increasing numbers they took over the main population of the area and the Atlantians migrated eastward for some time further diminishing their population in Stor.

Stor was originally a small castle occupied by the forces of the Empire of Numeron, and during this time it was a small and unimportant area as the mainstray of the conflict was in different areas. The region of Stor and its Dolish germanic population would become a powerful client kingdom as the expansion of the european Numenorian continued and it was at this time that the Kingdom of Stor expanded into the Frostfang Mountains. When the Empire of Numeron collapsed the forces of Arnor would take control of the region of Stor and its great castle of Stor. Under Arnor Stor would grow larger with a city growing around the outside, but the main problem became this growth was focused amongst the incoming Goths that were flooding into Westros. Eventually unable to resist the rise of the Goths the forces of Arnor gave rise to House Stor who they believed would act as a client of sorts but still keep control of the region for Arnor. The collapse of this relationship was the rise of the White Walkers to the north, and the fact that no longer were Arnor and Stor connected as easily as they once were. Stor itself would be besieged by the rampaging forces of the White Walkers, and only after a great battle were they finally pushed back to the boundaries within the Frostfang Mountains. After this the city of Stor, and the entire Stor region would grow to become the main powerbase of northwestern Westros, and its capital was the envy of many of the wandering bands of roving tribes east of them.

Coup of Stor

Main Article : Stor Coup of 5135

Coup of Stor
Power is the only thing that he would ever respect. I did what I had to.
Britney Hemsworth Cover3
We were but weeks removed from the destruction of the only home we had ever known, and here we were in this new place being treated with kindness and dignity by the Stor. Where I was proud of being their friends and allies, my mother quickly grew unable to be at their level and longed to dominate them.
Lucie Lovie

Following the destruction of Arnor most of the forces of Arnor had retreated into the Dwarven Lands, and from there they had remained or had travelled into the Kingdom of Lolland which had been the traditional client state of Arnor due to the proximity to the Dwarven Mines. For Britney Hemsworth, her daughter Lucie and her Order of the Black Numenorians she would travel to the Kingdom of Stor where she had spent years building her influence for this very moment, and was given a royal invite by King Endrew Stor I. While there Lucie Lovie was ignored by her mother of whom was emotionally destroyed by the death of her brother Chris, and the assumed death of Liam alongside everything she had done, and because of this Lucie spent her time with Roslin Stor II. of whom made her a lady in waiting for her. Roslin would go to Britney Hemsworth and attempt to help her but found Britney crying in her room and Britney would beg the supremely intelligent Roslin to take Lucie away from the capital for a time and show her the sights of Stor. Despite not wanting to leave the capital while so much important things were happening she and Britney had become friends over all the years Britney had visited the land, and from that Roslin trusted her. Lucie would following this be approached by Roslin of whom told her she planned to travel Stor for a time, and she wanted Lucie to come with her and her family, and after discovering her mother had allowed this she would steadily agree with travelling with Roslin.

Your Grace I knew not what my mother was planning. I went with your daughter for no reason other then the fact that she was the first person since my aunt who put me first. She just cared about me, and I wanted to be around her. I`m sorry for what happened, but you must believe me your grace when I tell you that I knew not my mothers plans.
Lucie Lovie

Roslin would go with her daughter, and baby son alongside some fifty men at arms to gaurd them as they travelled northward to the Wall. As they left Stor they were greeted by Jasper Stor of whom joined their journey alongside his wife, and their youngest child of whom they wanted to bless at the great Dragonoph Statue near the Wall. Traveling with this close knit family Lucie came to understand how truly dysfunctional her mother was, and she grew to enjoy this family more then her own, and what came along with being her mother`s daughter. The group would reach the Wall, and while the children were not allowed to scale the wall through the elevator Jasper Hale would go to the top with their baby son Jordon Stor of whom he blessed at the Great Aerene Statue that hung off the side of the wall. As they left the wall they would head towards a large waterfall so that Lucie could see it, when as they traveled the road they were stopped by a group of bandits of whom fired on the guards and a great fight occurred. The men guarding them did their best but were outnumbered, and ultimately defeated when another group attacked the caravan from the rear, and Lucie was shocked when she recognized them as her mother`s men. Jasper Stor was struck down after letting his gaurd down to one of the people attacking him. Lucie watched from the wagon as the person who had struck Jasper down pulled back their hood and revealed her mother Britney of whom whispered to Jasper as he died. Lucie would scream out, causing Britney to see her and smile briefly before standing and coming towards the Caravan.

Roslin Stor II.
There are times my sweet daughter when we must do evil things for the good of many. The germans here cannot rule themselves for they do not have the capability too. I am doing them a service by taking control here. Without me they are doomed to a life of cruel unhappiness.
Britney Hemsworth

With Jasper dead and Britney approaching the wagon Jasper`s wife finally got loose of Roslin`s hold and ran out of the wagon where she attempted to get to Jasper but Britney stuck her down killing her before opening the wagon door and waving her daughter away with a hand, before talking with Roslin. Britney planned to use Roslin and her children as blackmail in case they ran into any kind of trouble when they arrived in Stor and begin the coup. Roslin told her that she would not be used as a bargaining chip and that she might as well kill her now because she was going to ruin Britney`s entire plan, but Britney needed Roslin and thus simply put her in chains and led her to another wagon which was barred. As Britney commanded her men to move the caravan back towards Stor she was attacked by her daughter Lucie of whom finally was finished with Britney and begin raining her little fists at her mother, and Britney and her would have a massive argument which ended with Lucie being locked in the main wagon with Roslin`s children, and Britney getting back on a horse and leading the caravan towards Stor.

Every plot comes with an element of risk, as you are trusting that men who are betraying their king are going to continue remain loyal, when everything in their character tells you they won`t.
Britney Hemsworth

While Lucie had been gone with Roslin on their trip, and before Britney ambushed the caravan it was Britney that had been putting into place the final elements of her plan when she was finally able to convince Theomore Coldtor that Britney would be better as the leader of the land then the Stor`s of whom Britney had spent years manipulating Theomore into believing that the Stor`s were hateful towards the Coldtor`s. Theomore spent months gathering support, and had what he believed was a dozen marginal lords sided with him, while he also had two powerful lords of whom had been offended by the King in someway or another. When Britney left to attack the caravan and take Roslin prisoner Theomore would send his son Theodred Coldtor III. to the capital to meet with his other son Arthor Coldtor IV. of whom was now married to Roslin Stor and he planned to give Arthor a chance at the Lordship of House Stor if he would support their attack on the Stor`s. Britney had warned him against this and Theomore had promised he wouldn`t but he believed that his son Arthor hated his life with Roslin and thus would be easy pickings, when in fact Arthor deeply loved his wife and children and wouldn`t risk their injury.

The Coup Discovered

Ar-Brentey Hemsworth Cover Amazing5
Your Grace they mean to take control, by this point they may already have my wife and your daughter under their control.
Arthor Stor

Following the conversation between Theodred Coldtor and his brother it was Arthor who would go to the King and tell him about the plot that was forming, and Theodred had trusted his brother so much that he had told him major elements of the plan to the point that the coup was basically crushed the moment this information was revealed. The King would send Arthor with a troop of men along the road where they would attempt to quickly protect the caravan of his wife and the kings daughter while at the same time Endrew would call his banners to him, and lay siege to Castle Cold where House Coldtor made their home. The caravan with Britney had gotten a day away from Stor and made camp before Britney planned to meet with her secret forces arrayed inside the capital, and it was here where Britney would meet with her daughter for what neither of them knew was the last time. As Britney spoke to her Lucie refused to speak to her mother, and Britney broke down begging Lucie to understand that she just wanted to be with William and that she was doing everything she could to be noticed, but Lucie demanded to speak to her father now and when Britney refused Lucie turned away and said no more. Roslin had spent the days of traveling working her way out of the weak restraints that had been placed on her, and had now managed to convince one of the bandits that she would knight him if the bandit would release her, and the bandit came through when he killed the guard of her wagon and let her outside.

My husband is a good man...he`s an honest man, and I love him. Please Britney I beg of you to not do this. Take it all back for a moment and just do the right thing. Make the right decision for once...please Britney...
Roslin Stor II.

As Roslin escaped Britney was crying in her tent when she was told by her scouts that a large group of knights was seen traveling the road towards them, and that they carried the kings banner. The scouts reported that a smaller group had broken ahead and was making faster approach up the road with only sixty or so men, while main force was moving slower due to have infantry. Knowing immediately that she had been discovered she commanded that the Bandits be assembled for fighting while all of her own men were to assemble west of the camp, and await her arrival. As the Numenorian Gaurds left she went to find her daughter with Ser Arys Tordenall, and would be unable to find her as she had managed to get out of her locked wagon alongside Roslin`s children. Realizing that Roslin must have escaped she commanded the bandits to assemble to her and they traveled along the road and above a hill overlooking the road. As Arthor and his men traveled the road below they would fire on them killing dozens, and causing Arthor to charge into them up the hill with the few men he had left. Arthor would be dueled by Arys Tordenhall and defeated and his form brought back to the camp where Britney called out for Roslin of whom she knew would still be hiding in the camp because that's where the relief would arrive. Hearing that Britney had her husband she came out of hiding and confronted Britney.

Britney Hemsworth lARGE7
Don`t you understand mother what you`ve done. You did all these things, you killed all these people and for what. He must not love you or else why would he never have sent for you. He doesn`t love you and how could he ever love someone as disturbed as you. Go to hell mother, and never come back. You are dead to me.
Lucie Lovie
The two would argue back and forth, and got no where as Britney planned to kill Arthor as punishment for her plan falling through and never had any scenario where Arthor lived. Roslin begged and pleaded for Arthor`s life but to no avail, and then Lucie came out of hiding and also tried to argue for his relief, but even her own daughter couldn`t convince Britney to let him go, and as a Bandit came and whispered to Britney Arthor would say goodbye to his wife and turned to Britney and said that he forgave her for her mistakes. Britney would let a tear fall before slitting his throat and then getting on her horse and leaving with the bandits and Ser Aryn. When the main force arrived they found the group and Roslin forced most of them to chase after Britney in the hopes of catching her and her forces, but everyone had a sort of knowing feeling that she was gone.
Roslin Stor Gif

Roslin Stor II. was known as one of the most intelligent people in Stor and she helpless to help her beloved husband.

The King would go to the field where the bodies of Jasper, and his wife were discovered upon the directions of Roslin and finding his brother and his wife alongside the fifty men defending them was a horrifying moment for the king and he broke down crying. Roslin Stor II. would return to the capital with Lucie Lovie of whom told her everything she could about her life, and everyone was called to a council where they were told that they had the oldest child of the King of Lucerne in their hands, and despite many saying they should barter her to the Lucernians Roslin argued that if they did that William had shown he would never forgive the slight.
Britney's Escape
Roslin do you think my mother is sorry. Do you think when she looks back at what happens here she will look back at it with sorrow. I wonder Roslin if she will look upon any of this as anything other then an annoying setback.
Lucie Lovie

By this point Britney Hemsworth and her personal escort arrived in Dole where they would meet with the hundreds of other Black Numenorian Gaurd and made their way to the capital of the land of Dole. Britney had spent most of her time preparing herself to take control of Stor, but she had also made several trips to Dole and had made connections in the Dolish political scene as well. She would reach the capital and upon reaching the capital meet with some of her more senior commanders of whom told her that her daughter had turned sides to the Stor and had given up her parentage to Roslin, and from what they could gather Lucie was in the process of being sent to Lucerne. Britney would command several of her men to travel to Storhold where they would wait for the moment that the shipping of her to Lucerne was growing close, and at that point they would be given further intructions about what they were to do. In Dole Britney prepared with even more vigor then she had in Stor to take control of the land, and make herself into the power that would finally show William what he was actually meant to be married to.

Siege of Coldtor

My son is dead. I cannot surrender now.
Theomore Coldtor

Theomore Coldtor would be besieged by the forces of the Stor following the discovery of the Coup being planned against House Stor and with Theomore having already prepared for the coup his forces were assembled at Castle Coldtor already and thus the siege would not be a quick affair, and this was only made worse with the discovery that his son Arthor had been killed during the fighting.

Dragonoph Temple of Stor

In the Kingdom of Stor the people and nobility of Stor's constant attempt to become more culturally similar to the Numenorians to their north would lead them to also centralize and expand on the organization of the Dragonoph Temple of Stor where the Temple begin to take on a very non-Dragonoph role in goverment. Led by the High Priest of the Stor Temple the Dragonoph Temple of Stor would take on a real role in the goverment as well as founding an officially sanctioned military order in the form of the Dragonoph Knights of Stor of whom could act basically independantly of the will of the King of Stor.
