Kraegs Marine.jpg

The Kreigs Marine is the fleet that is maintained by the Order of the Red Dragon, and as such it is a very important member of the overall Order of the Red Dragon. The Kreigs Marine makes its operations out of the port of Stormwind, and as such it has grown in the valley as a counter balance somewhat to the fleets of Lorderon, Kul Tiras, and the Riverlands. The main purpose of the Kreigs Marine is obviously fleet against fleet actions, and as such it maintains a large amount of galley's with which to fight against the enemy fleets. On top of this service the fleet also maintains large transport ships which they use for the transportation of troops, and also what can only be described as the first merchant ships. These ships have an open top without weaponry and thus are protected by the fighting ships while they do their tasks.

The Kreigs Marine begin to take shape following the growth of the port of Stormwind, and much of the Kreigs Marine was the actions of several houses including House Starke, House Anthor, and House Hawick and it is for this reason that the Kreigs Marine grew so quickly in these starting years. The Fleet was built by the funding of these houses, and the profits off of much of the incoming trade into the port of Stormwind being given to them by the Order of the Black Dragon who had grown immensly due to the growth of the port, but needed defence from the random attacks of pirates on the Rhine River.

Founding of Anthor

Founding of Anthor
Father it is time. You must come with us. This is the only way the Kingdom can ever truly heal.

It was east where I saw our future. It was in our expansion into the Riverlands, Westbridge and Westros that the growth of the kingdom would be built, and it all started with growth in what we actually had.
William Lovie III.

Following the crowning of William Lovie III. as the King of Lucerne many drastic changes were going on in the Kingdom of Lucerne, and one of these was the idea of the necessity of a port in eastern Lucerne to be the center of the navy of Lucerne. This eastern location would also allow them to combat the increasing piracy that was coming from Yairs (Region) and in time William wanted to incorporate them into the Kingdom of Lucerne. William also wanted to expand the control of the Lucernian Kingdom in the east with the feeling that most of the region was either of dubious loyalty or underpopulated the region of Anthor was chosen for the site of the new port. The Order of the Red Dragon had the funds and materials needed to begin construction of the Lucerne navy but no great port existed, and Lannistane was deemed to dangerous a location to do it at since the Lannisters couldn't be fully trusted. William would send Varian Anthor his family and vassals eastward where they would found a port on the island now to be named Anthor. The Port of Eastfall would become the beacon of the eastern section in a part of the land where there was little Lucernian presence. The vast province of Winterfell was somewhat broken up to make way for the larger state of Anthor and the many provinces within it, and this was compromise of later giving House Starke land north of Anthor (Later would become Hentwood). The lands that became Anthor would be rich in fishing, and had some mining, but the main operations of the house would be built around Eastfall and the trade that would grow from being the center of eastern trade for the Kingdom of Lucerne.

House Anthor nearly bankrupted itself constructing the port, but as the loans from the Hales, and Lovie's flowed in the fears were somewhat alayed. This was going to be their main holding and for them you could tell by talking to Varian that he wanted it perfect. He dreamed of Stormwind, and Lucerne when constructing the port.
Leonardo Mevinlo

The Port of Eastfall's construction would be the responsibility of both House Anthor and the Order of the Grey Dragon of whom had already worked magic reconstructing Tree Hill. The Port of Eastfall was constructed over several months and during this time House Anthor was busy travelling around the new state making sure that everything was going according to plan, and during this time they were met by members of House Starke who arrived in the near built port of Eastfall. During this time Leonardo Mevinlo would arrive in the port with nearly two hundred engineers and thousands of workmen from the west. Leonard had been tasked with completing the port as quickly as possible and that the Order would fund a basic design on its own, and that House Anthor would be responsible for any expansions on the plan. Finding Varian very much interested in growth he would be tasked with quickly adding to the construction several extra docks, and a large expansion of the Anthor esates.

Candice Anthor was the most trusted person for Varian Anthor and she was placed in charge of directing around all the nobles visiting the Port of Stormwind.

We were gaining a Noble House in our lands, and that was something we had to keep a close eye on. House Anthor was known for its honor, but honor is something often spoke of and unless tested how can one know.
Jon Snow

The Starke's were led by Robb , and Brandon Starke while accompanied by Jon Snow and his friend Samwell Tarly in order to meet with the new Noble House that existed on their doorstep. Kevan Ambry also arrived in the area in order to make sure everyone knew that he was the first in line for the lands north of Anthor that were being promiced, and he arrived around the time that Keven, and Tyrek Lannister also arrived in order to see what was happening and how it would affect Castamere. Candice Anthor was placed in charge of leading the visiting nobles around and making sure they were kept happy, and she did this extremely effectively to the point that Keven Lannister bid her whether she would be open to a marriage to young Tytos Lannister. She would politely refuse but Jon Snow was listening in and watched as she eyed him afar, and after this she would confront Jon on evesdropping. She would kiss him, and the two would begin to take it farther until he stopped her telling her that his heart was with another. Following this the whole group would group together to meet with a large party of Frey's that her father had bid come to the port and see the scope of what was planned in order to further relations under the overal command of William.

Frey Trouble

House Frey Sigil.png
The Frey's were know as a rotten bunch but you didn't realize until you actually saw them that the rumors were true.
Jon Snow

The Kingdom of Lucerne would make it a point to invite the Frey's and under the command of William Lovie III. the Frey's were to be treated with the utmost of care. William though would be skeptical of them at the same time due to the conversation that he had with Menelia Proudmoore during the Nortburg Tournament of 5125 where Menelia Candice Anthor, and Jon Snow would continue to spend time together and she continued to attempt to seduce him, but his father's teachings about honor made him unable to do so. She would go to the port when the Freys arrived with Jon Snow beside her, and as the Freys visited it seemed clear to the Lucernians that the Freys were after a marriage. After discussions over the female Frey's that they brought with them went well it was believed by all those that were there that everything was going according to plan. After the Freys returned with Roslin Frey the most pretty of the girls that had been sent the Lucernians would make the mistake of not bringing Tytos Lannister to the meeting (Keven had been commanded not to by Tywin Lannister knowing that it would make them think it was Robb Starke they were offering) and this led the Frey's to believe that Robb was being offered. When this was made verbal there was laughter from several Lucernians who saw it as a joke that the Freys would believe Robb Starke would marry someone like a Frey. Black Walder Frey would take out his sword and fighting nearly broke out before his father Stevron Frey grabs ahold of him and controls the situation. The Freys leave after this with parting words from Lothar Frey being very threatening to Robb Starke of whom they feel greatly insulted them.

Robb never discussed the Frey object left behind in his room to anyone outside of Obella of whom he only vaguely mentioned once when she asked about the Frey's.

Beyond Childish were the Frey's. Did they honestly believe we would marry the heir of one of the most powerful men in the kingdom to a daughter leagues down the inheritence line of some foreign nation. Still hearing the limping Lothar Frey threaten my brother made my blood rise.
Jon Snow

The Frey's would return to their ships following the argument and despite attempts by many including a near marriage proposal created by Candice Anthor and Stevron Frey the other Freys were intimidated by Black Walder Frey and refused to listen to the heir of Frey in Stevron Frey. On the route back from Eastfall it is known that during the night everyone went to bed, and the next morning the boat had its anchors up, and many on board were dead including Stevron his wife, and the captain. Everyone believed that Black Walder had done it, but unable to prove it and unwilling to be next on the chopping block noone mentioned it, and the story returning to Frey was that the captain had gone insane and killed Stevron and his wife.

Trouble in Highport

People are starting to ask questions my friend. Go in there. Sleep with a whore, and make them forget their questions.
Percival Lott

Alongside the other forces it would be Robin Highport that travels to Eastfall in order to take part in the celebrations for the new city alongside his friends. Shortly before they leave Fogtown his sister Lara Highport comes down with a sickness due to her pregnancy with their second child and thus stayed behind while Robin Highport left Fogtown by boat traveling to Eastfall. Arriving in Fogtown he finds his friends forcing him to go to the newest local brothel and after a confrontation with Percival Lott he is convinced that the only way to keep his relationship with Larra a secret is to follow their lead and thus he agrees to sleep with a whore at the brothel, and unknown to him the whore he is paired with is Vanessa Cleef of whom is in the process of being tricked by several noble girls into believing this will make her popular. Vanessa Cleef would travel to Anthor for the same reason as Robin, and accompanied by her family there was much thought to finding the fourteen year old Vanessa a future prospect for a husband, but in this regard she was extremely uncomfortable and was not looking forward to this. Entering the room where he believes he will sleep with a whore he finds Vanessa Cleef of whom convinced that she will popular if she sleeps with Robin decides to play the part as best she can, and so desperate for popularity is Vanessa that she is able to convince Robin that she is a whore at the brothel, and he eventually after having a connection with her sleeps with Vanessa.

Following this the two lay together and he promises that after he is done meeting with the people he has to at the ceremonies he will return to the brothel and pay for her escape from this life and marry her to a noblemen who will treat her right. The two talk for some time and it Robin finds himself for the first time feeling something for a girl that isn't Lara and realizes that perhaps there is hope for him outside of his relationship with Lara which he realizes cannot go anywhere real as she is his sister and thus will always be walled off to him. Kissing the girl on the forehead he leaves her once again with the promise to return and then leaving he brothel he returns to the the camp outside of Anthor where he meets up with his friends, who are actually shocked he went through with it, but no his honor is without question and believe him. Vanessa having been left to herself cleans herself up and goes downstairs where she tells the girls that she did but they all already know as they reveal they were watching through the wall of the brothel and embarrassed she finds that they treat her better and they walk her back to her families lodgings in the city and all say goodbye with Vanessa feeling good for the first time she can remember.

Robin spends time with his uncle before he falls asleep in preparation for his role at the ceremony for the foundation of the city, and the dinner that will follow for the nobles. The ceremony comes and arriving at the town hall Robin enters the room where he and his party travel to their table, but he nearly falls over when he sees Vanessa seated at one of the tables, and it is with her locking eyes with him that he spits out his drink causing the entire room to look to him, but she flees the room as this happens. Despite the staring of all the nobles in the room which amounts to most of the most influential people in the entire Kingdom of Lucerne Robin remains seated in his chair and despite dying inside that he cannot chase after her he thinks of how important this event is and not wanting to let down the memory of his fallen sister and brother he raises his drink and makes a toast laughing off his spitting out the drink which causes nearly everyone to laugh with him. As the dinner progresses it is Vanessa that makes her way back into the room after her father found her and forced her back and returning to the room as the nobles all mingle she is found by Robin and she reveals who she really is and shocked at this he begins attempting to discuss marriage between the two but they are interrupted by the arrival of Vanessa's brother Vilhem Cleef who introduces his betrothed Sydra Skane and despite Vanessa nearly crying Vilhem is so excited that he takes over the remainder of Vanessa and Robin's time together which ends with the arrival of Vanessa's father Saiden Cleef of whom also does not realize Vanessa is overwhelmed and thus doesn't check in on her just takes her away leaving Robin's marriage offer hanging in the air unanswered. Following the end of the dinner Robin attempts to find Vanessa Cleef and finds Vilhem Cleef of whom tells him that Vanessa was sent away back to Goldshire after her father had been enraged at her embarrassing moment of running out of the dining hall, and at this news Robin returns to his party and tells them that he will travel to Goldshire.

Arrival of Kul Tiras

Derek Proudmoore

While the situation in Lucerne was coming under control it was other regions that were feeling a different feeling and of these the situation in Kul Tiras was one of fear and chaos. Following the marriage of Derek Proudmoore to Sauria Frey the relationship between the Freys and Proudmoore's should have gotten better but instead it had gotten far worse with Tiras ships and Frey ships fighting on the Rhine. This got worse when the Empire of Frey declared war on Kul Tiras in the Frey Invasion of Kul Tiras but despite having superior numbers the navy of Kul Tiras was able to defeat the Frey's at sea and thus push back the invasion. Realizing that they would not survive another invasion Kul Tiras first looked to the Riverlands, and Lorderon for assistance but when both negotiations went no where it was the Kingdom of Lucerne that would be viewed as the next best option.

Your Grace. I have a letter here, that was given to me by a prominent member of the druids. You need to read this.
Elsa Hosk

William watches as Leven walks away from the tent and then lets Elsa into his tent where once inside she shows him the letter. Reading the letter it is written by an unknown writer but details how the Druids of the Hearth are corrupted by evil and mean to simply distract Lucerne so that there true plans can move forward.


Organization

Kriegs Reich Marshal

The Kriegs Reich Marshal controls the second largest force within the Order of the Red Dragon behind only the Wehrmacht thus making him a very powerful Reich Marshal. His position allows him control over all the ships of the Kreigs Navy, but also the small but elite Kreigs Marines of whom are specially bred for seaborne invasions and were instrumental in the Invasion of Yerness.

See Also : Vanduin Lonar

Vanduin Lonar is the son of two lowly farmers from the eastern reaches of the valley of Lucerne thus making him a commoner and not a member of any noble family. Vanduin had one sibling in the form of Ulia Lonar of whom was killed during the Gondor Civil War after their village was caught in the middle of the conflict. Vanduin would marry following his becoming a Dragon Knight of House Anthor, and would be married into a noble family in the form of Irene Hooper of the Anthor vassal House Hooper. With Irene Hooper he has three children of which are all members of his knightly House Lonar in the form of Tavin, Varlia, and Mellia Lonar of which Tavin is one of his top commanders in the Kriegs Marine and a talented ship captain, his son Varlia is the Lord of House Lonar in everything but actual title, while his daughter Mellia is also a member of the Kriegs Marine where she captains her own boat and has become notorious for her brutality in boarding actions.

Vanduin Lonar was born in a poor village inside of Gondor, and during this time he was constantly wishing for a better life but understood that his family was doing the best that they could. He would become a localized commander of the Gondor defences of the area, and in this position he would remain until the coming of the Lucernians into the region heralded great change in his life. Years before the actual Gondor war with Lucerne his home was attacked by a small party of Lucernian forces led by House Lannister and assisted by House Anthor who had been sent to temper the violence done during the attack. During this attack House Lannister would put the village to flame, and capture all the survivors. As Vanduin was prepared for execution he was pardoned by Tommen Anthor of whom knighted him on the spot so that the Lannister's couldn't still execute him. This made Vanduin and Tommen close friends, and Vanduin would return to Stormwind with his knew Lord where he would become closer to the inner circle of House Anthor to the point that he was married to Irene Hooper in order to make him truly a noble. Over the next years he would father three children, and he and his wife were very much in love, and Vanduin became fanatical in his devotion to House Anthor, and the overal Kingdom of Lucerne.
