Game of Thrones Season 7 Teaser

This one is called the “Sigils”, apparently because all you see in the teaser are house sigils. It is pretty interesting though, with lines and dialogue from previous seasons to keep the sigils company. Game of Thrones season 7 will premiere on July 16, and consist of only seven episodes.

The wars that inspired Game of Thrones

From the video:

Beginning around 1377, medieval England was shaken by a power struggle between two noble families, which spanned generations and involved a massive cast of characters, complex motives and shifting loyalties. Sound familiar? Alex Gendler illustrates how the historical conflict known as the Wars of the Roses served as the basis for much of the drama in Game of Thrones.

It’s not Valyrian Steel, but these Game of Thrones Replica Weapons are Pretty Neat

Whether you prefer the hacking and slashing style of Westeros, or the succinct water dance of Bravos, you need a sword in your hand. Since you don’t want to slash anyone with your sword either, it is better to give up on the Valyrian steel, or steel for that matter; foam is where the action is. The latex weapon is safer, and you could put it to good use in LARPing, reenacting, and roleplaying.
