Ned frowned. "He must learn to face his fears. He will not be three forever. And winter is coming."
"Yes,” Catelyn agreed. The words gave her a chill, as they always did. The Stark words. Every noble house had its words. Family mottoes, touchstones, prayers of sorts, they boasted of honor and glory, promised loyalty and truth, swore faith and courage. All but the Starks. Winter is coming, said the Stark words. Not for the first time, she reflected on what a strange people these northerners; were.

The box art is amazing!
It is possible that goes in spain. Thanks
Excellent news! Game looks really fun.
That expansion may be tentatively titled A Dance with Dragons.
Those Houses weren't available in the original game, but that's not to say the Targaryens couldn't show up as a possible expansion.
No Targaryen or Arryn eh? I wonder if we can get a game where all 8 houses are playable.
I wasn't expecting this kind of treat tonight.
I am really looking forward to this!
