+rep to the poster above me, because it wonderfully illustrates most of my problems with Turbine's new design of Bree. Whenever I would read about Bree, I would picture this small, peaceful village, almost devoid of crime and class superiority. It sounded like a place for simple Men and Hobbits to live a simple life. Now it's got walls on all sides, a slum full of homeless people, and some 70 guardsmen just patrolling the streets. There's nothing to be done for it now, but it's taking me a long while to get used to the new design.
Now, as to the topic at hand. Certainly, whether Bree was intended to be this utopian village or not, RP in our game has taken a far turn from it. This is another thing that cannot be helped. Like it or not, most RP I notice in lotro often has a darker, grittier feel to it than anything Tolkien likely intended. Unfortunately for the OP, the biggest mistake in this post was to use the title "Game of Thrones." That's going to draw in a lot of unnecessary criticism right off the bat.
Instead of an outright rip of the noble houses from Westeros or where ever, try to go for something a little more subtle. The posts from Lashmore and Malrex, in the thread you made on the Landroval forum, are a good place to start. You may be surprised to hear that some RP, at least on Landroval, has had no shortage of house related conflict throughout its storied history - it just hasn't been labeled as such, and was likely buried under beneath several more layers of complex interaction.
So while people may shoot down any idea of a GoT-themed family/house RP, the very essence of such drama and conflict has existed in our RP here for many, many years.
