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.
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.
Castle Black, One of three fortresses on the Wall still manned by the Night's Watch (in addition to Eastwatch by the Sea and the Shadow Tower), the castle provides a dark and chilling home for those committed enough – or unlucky enough – to take up its defense.
Stannis Baratheon and his army arrive to finish off with the wildlings.
Qarth. A wealthy port city, it is considered by natives to be "the greatest city that was or will be." It was ruled by a group of dignitaries known as the Thirteen until the arrival of Daenerys Targaryen. Two of the noblemen, merchant Xaro Xhoan Daxos and warlock Pyatt Pree, tried to take over the city and enslave Daenerys’ dragons, but were killed when Daenerys discovered their treachery.
Meereen. A sister city to Yunkai and Astapor, Meereen boasted a thriving slave trade until the arrival of Daenerys Targaryen. Backed by her army of Unsullied, Dany incited a slave rebellion and took the city.
Bravos, Free City. A city of seafarers and master swordsmen, Braavos consists of hundreds of tiny islands connected by stone bridges. A giant statue, called the Titan of Braavos, guards the harbor entrance to the city.
Vaes Dothrak. The only city in the Dothraki Sea, it is large enough to house every khalasar at once. Home to two trading markets and the dosh khaleen, the widows of fallen khals, it is forbidden to carry weapons or to spill blood within Vaes Dothrak's walls.
Winterfell. Winterfell was the seat of the Stark family for generations until one-time Stark ward Theon Greyjoy seized the castle for his father during the War of Five Kings. Roose Bolton's bastard son, Ramsay Snow took it back but left it in ruins. Tywin Lannister awared the castle to Lord Bolton after the Red Wedding for his service to the crown.
