All of Westeros is at war. The Lannisters fighting the Starks, the Night's Watch fighting what lies beyond the wall. All is a mass chaos, which is exactly what the Dragon Princess wanted. Turn a country in on itself, and then come take over.
Under cover of night, Lord Eddard Stark was smuggled out of King's Landing by several allies to his home. He has been safely delivered to his son, Robb, and back into the arms of his loving wife Catelyn. King Joffrey still is unsure of how Lord Stark has escaped, but he is keeping a tight lock down on the people of the Court.
With Northern spies still posted in the halls and keeping tabs on the Lannister's actions, one would think that the Starks have the upper hand. Bloodshed continues to rule over Westeros, the Lannisters and the Starks too busy fighting one another to see the danger on the horizon.
Daenerys Targaryen has build an army and is planning to arrive on the coast of Westeros as soon as preparations can be completed with the intentions of regaining the throne that was stolen from her father. Now all three houses, with their allies, are entering into a game more dangerous than any of them could have imagined.
When you play the game of thrones you either win... or you die.
