GAME OF THRONES
The Game will continue in 2015
King's Landing, Seat of the King. Named upon the arrival of the conquering king Aegon Targaryen, this city long served as a home to the ruling family until Robert Baratheon deposed Aerys Targaryen, known as the Mad King. The southern region's balmy climate contributes to a life of lavishness for those who can afford it, but the city's mobbed streets demand caution from even its most powerful residents.
Tyrion Lannister. With help from his brother, Tyrion Lannister escapes from the dungeons of the Red Keep.
Harrenhal. Harrenhal was built centuries ago by Harren the Black, who was betrayed by his bannermen during the Targaryen Conquest. King Joffrey presented Janos Slynt with the castle as thanks for his part in the capture of Ned Stark, but Slynt lost these lands and his title when Tyrion Lannister was named acting Hand of the King. Harrenhal was then given to Littlefinger for brokering an allegiance between the Lannisters and Tyrells. As no lord has lasted long within its walls, it is believed to be cursed.
Casterly Rock. Seat of House Lannister, Warden of the West. Legend has it that Lann the Clever tricked the Casterly family into giving up their castle, thus beginning the Lannister bloodline. The fortress guards a region once rife with gold mines, the source of the Lannister's significant wealth.
Dorne. The southernmost of the Seven Kingdoms, Dorne is ruled by House Martell. In a marriage arrangement brokered by Tyrion Lannister, the family is now hosting Princess Myrcella Baratheon.
