The mythical world of Westeros is a land divided; seven noble houses rule the seven kingdoms of the continent. They feud, form alliances, backstab and plot against one another. A human player might get benefits from healing his allies and from killing his rivals. But will petty human in-fighting distract them from the real enemy—the white walkers, an ancient legion of creatures as ruthless and cruel as winter itself?

Every player (probably) will get a role which is aligned with a certain house. The other members of that house will be their allies, and the members of certain other houses will (probably) be their enemies. They will get benefits depending on what they do to those allies and enemies. But they don't know who is who. Despite this, all of the humans all have the same win condition (probably): eliminate the white walkers.

In addition to a role and a house, every player gets a fake role with which to false claim if they desire. White Walkers get two. These roles will feature characters a different allegiance. Now spoiler free! A character list will be provided, listing the name and allegiance of every real and fake role in the game. You don't need any familiarity with the show or book to perform extremely well in this game, since you should often be able to determine what powers a role might have by reading the description of that character.

And it's still a mystery game. Be prepared for twists, new mechanics, and other disasters to gum up your best laid plans.

Character List (with Descriptions)

Character List

There are 28 characters in this list, but only 11 of them are actual roles in this game. The other 17 are false roles given to players and White Walkers to allow them to false claim more easily. This lists each of those roles (real or fake) by their house allegiance, if any. Try not to make too many assumptions about the make-up of the game based on the list or your role PM; I peppered the game description with (probably)s for a reason--it's tricky! The White Walkers may not even be red! They could be white or something! Characters from this list were selected to be in the game at random, rather than based on their importance.
