“Remind your Good Master of who I am. Remind him that I am Daenerys Stormbom, Mother of Dragons, the Unburnt, trueborn queen of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. My blood is the blood of Aegon the Conqueror, and of old Valyria before him.”
–Daenerys Targaryen, A Storm of Swords
The jousts and melees of the A Game of Thrones: The Card Game Regional Championship tournament season have nearly come to a close. Victorious knights take their winnings gladly while others nurse their bruises, curse their luck, and hope for the chance to show better in the next tourney. Now, lords and ladies congratulate the winners and turn their attentions toward House matters. The Seven Kingdoms sit on the brink of war. The Great Houses of Westeros each keep their eyes upon the Iron Throne…
While the Regional Championships have brought fame and glory to hedge knights and highborn contenders across the globe, the greatest struggles still lie ahead: Who will sweep across the Seven Kingdoms and A Game of Thrones at the North American Championship tournament? Who will seize the Iron Throne at the FFG World Championship Weekend?
