I have not read any of the books but for those that have, do the White Walkers ever attack or try to cross the wall?
There are some new featurettes on Winteriscoming.net. Jon, Dany, Joffrey, and Renly. The Renly one is awesome because it seems Margery is going to be a much bigger part of this series than she was in the books and definitely knows Renly is gay for Loras. Already seen the first deviation from the book as Littlefinger meets with Renly and Margery. Interesting that Littlefinger is the means for the writer's expositions this season as well it seems.
As someone who gets EW sent to me via a gift subscription, this pleases me.
So I read the article in the Entertainment Weekly with GOT on the cover, they confirmed that Storm of Swords will be 2 seasons! 20 episodes for that book. $#@! to the yeah.
As far as deviating from the book, expect Jeyne and Robb to be bigger. There's a new character called the Spice King who's being introduced probably to streamline all the characters that Dany meets on her way out of the Red Waste to Qarth. Jaime's part will be expanded.
Spoiler for something really different from the books.
New trailer..Price Of Our Sins.
Seems Master Cressen will watch the burning of the Seven Gods whereas I'm pretty sure he only is at the Painted Table before the dinner. Maybe the idea is to use him as exposition for what Davos is thinking during the burning of the Seven. Kind of like how they had Littlefinger tell the Hound's backstory to Sansa instead of the book version with the Hound telling her.
Also there's a new Robb profile. First glimpse of Jeyne.
Oh forgot to add in the GOT's article in EW, it says GRRM wrote the Blackwater episode. So yeah, it's going to kick ass.

as i read this i am listening to the audiobook once again of SOS, and guess what part is playing right now? boom doom boom doom...im so freaking pissed again
decided to see what the fuss was all about, and shut myself in to watch season 1 for the first time on HBO marathon today. Halfway through it. Greatness.
This is a good 3 part interview with GRRM. Part 2 was particularly insightful, including how he felt about writing that thing that happens in SOS. It's really only spoilerly of GOT/Season 1. And gotdamn Emilia Clarke is cute.
if you watch all three parts at the end of part three he reads several pages from his next novel "the winds of winter" and they are damn good...he says it picks up five minutes after the end of "a dance with dragons"
Someone on winteriscoming.net claims this is the test shot of what the Iron Islands looks like. Pretty awesome especially the bridge which plays a big role in Feast of Crows.
I watched all of that.. good stuff.. except I wanted to murder that interviewer. You could tell that he wanted to too
New character profile: Stannis
First real look at Melisandre, Salladhor Saan, and the Onion Knight.
pledge your alllience!
some short featurettes on the greyjoys, starks etc with some new scenes...

They are releasing so much, they should just go ahead and move the premier up a couple of weeks.
I can almost count how many days until the premier on 2 hands...
P.S. I'm pledging House Littlefinger...best character ever
Someone posted asking for a map on the other thread but since they're all finicky about book discussion, I figured I'll post this here instead. Pretty incredible map. Not official or anything so there's some errors but George R.R. Martin said it's "quite good."
From the map creator's website:
I'm sure everyone will want to know if George has seen this and if so what he thinks of it. Of course I have already emailed a copy to George and here is what he said in his reply:
Sent: Thursday 1 March 2012
GRRM: This is a very handsome map. And based on the information you have, it's quite good.
But of course there's lots of information you don't have, so it's not accurate. There are certain things -- the geography and location of the Summer Islands, the placement of Qarth and the Jade Gates, everything east of Slaver's Bay and the Dothraki Sea... that you would have no way of knowing.
Map Creator: Of course having now finished the map I discover there is to be a Map of Ice and Fire book published later this year which will no doubt contain an official world map. So I may have wasted some of my time here but I'm sure I can adapt what I've done to match the official maps and that will give me a good background to build the animation on.
GRRM:Yes, I'm afraid so. I've been working on maps for the Bantam map book for most of the last week. Including lots of maps of places we have never seen before, and a "known world" map that goes as far east as Asshai. (Not a true world map, of course. If my world contains analogues of the Americas, Australia, Antarctica, and the like, the people of the Seven Kingdoms are unaware of them, so it did not seem right for the readers to know more than the characters.
Thanks for letting me have a look.
George RR Martin
That's a hell of a map, kudos to the artist. I notice the stupid ratings on the bottom of the map for the creative commons , God I hope cencorship doesn't get so terrible I have TV like ratings on the corner of everything...damn laws
Can someone point to me where Skagos is? The place where Davos is trying to get to?
On that map I posted, it's the big island just to the right of Eastwatch by the Sea at the Wall.
Yeah, the intro always reflects the location of events for that episode. Pretty cool $#@!.

I THINK that the wildlings and the sckagosi traded so she might know a few, and they're much wilder than most of the north. Also Neds mother or grandmother was from there. We won't know for sure until the next book though.
i would have gone to skane instead of skagos, i hear they have topless wildling beaches there...
video showing all the detail they put into the weapons used on GOT, truly amazing...
some new photos
melissandre, the red bitch
samwell "the wizard" tarley
shae the whore
I dislike the giant age gap the tv version has between Arya and Gendry. Makes things more difficult for me. On a side (and awesome) note, the chick who plays Shae did porn under the name "Dilara."
