A Storm of Swords picks up the story slightly before the end of its predecessor, A Clash of Kings. The Seven Kingdoms of Westeros are still in the grip of the War of the Five Kings, with the remaining Robb Stark, Balon Greyjoy, Joffrey Baratheon, and Stannis Baratheon fighting to secure their crowns. Civil war is destroying the common people, the ruling House of Baratheon and the major houses of Westeros, House Arryn of The Vale, House Baratheon of Storm's End, House Greyjoy of the Iron Islands, House Lannister of Casterly Rock, House Martell of Dorne, House Stark of Winterfell, House Tully of Riverrun, and House Tyrell of Highgarden. Stannis Baratheon's attempt to take King's Landing has been defeated by the new alliance between House Lannister (backing Joffrey) and House Tyrell. House Martell has also pledged its support to the Lannisters through the forces of Dorne, while House Arryn of The Vale have yet to take the field or declare their allegiance. Meanwhile, a large host of wildlings are marching toward the Wall under Mance Rayder, with only the tiny force of the Night's Watch in its path; and in the distant east, Daenerys Targaryen is on her way back to Pentos, hoping to raise forces to retake the Iron Throne.

The novel begins in the final months of 299 After the Landing and carries on into the year 300 AL.

one of the changes in the show that angered me most was having the tickler get killed by jaqen. way to take away one of the best arya moments :( also, why is the hand symbol a pin now? this makes me afraid tyrion is just gonna kill shae with a crossbow or something which isn't nearly as emotional or have nearly the same effect

Nah, if Tyrion kills Shae on the show it will be something very up close and personal. I still think he'll choke her....maybe stab her.

I still wanna see Tyrion shoot Tywin with a golden crossbow on the crapper, though. :lol:

there's a few things they just can't change, and tywin getting shot by tyrion while on the toilet is definitely one of them :p too bad we've got to wait almost 2 years for that gem

That could possibly happen in season three....as it happens in book 3. Now, book 3 is enormous and it has TONS of action and developments, and even though they have alread introduced some o fthe book 3 stuff in season two, I still think all of book 3 won't be covered in season 3. Think about it....Red Wedding, Joffrey's wedding to the Tyrell girl and reception where Joff gets dead. That's just two things. Then, there'sSansa's escape, Arya's escape from Westeros, Jon Snow with the wildlings, Tyrion kills Shae adn then Tywin. Tyrion is arrested and held for murder. The RED MUTHAFUCKIN' Viper champions for Tyrion against the Mountain. I could keep going, but I think you get the point. Oh, and did I mention Dany's trickery of the Slave lords/and how she takes the Unsullied? Man, so much happens. It will be interesting to see how much of it they can getthrough in 10 episodes and how muchthey will change/make their own. All of those plot points that I mentioned seem like they are vital and that we will definitely be seeing them in some fashion.

Look, now you've got me all excited for GoT, and we are still 4+ months away! :lol:

Well, yeah, I'd heard that....but they've already used a lot of book three stuff in season two....so, technically, they are splitting it up over 3 seasons then?

yeah, season 2 probably covered maybe the prolouge + first few chapters as i remember, so i still think plenty to spread over seasons 3 and 4, with maybe season 4 having some AFFC and ADWD at the end.

Yeah, books 4/5 won't be broken up like the books Could you imagine the backlash from fans if Tyrion, Dany, and Jon Snow were MIA for an entire season? :lol:

So, here's how it looks like it will go down:

Season 3(2013): Book 3
Season 4(2014): Book 3/maybe early parts of books 4/5
Season 5(2015): Books 4/5
Season 6(2016): Books 4/5
Season 7(2017): Get your ass in gear, George RR Martin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, that's a pretty good bet. As for where exactly the storylines will be split, this article is an interesting read: http://winteriscoming.net/2012/10/where ... of-swords/

Quote:
The biggest question, to me, is where they will split Storm? A recent interview with George R.R. Martin, revealed that season four will be part Storm with some A Dance of Dragons and A Feast for Crows mixed in. So we know that the book won’t be split in half. More like a two-thirds split. But there is a lot of wiggle room here; a lot of independent storylines that could be held back or moved forward, depending on how the writers want to play their cards.

yeah that's true, and how much of ADWD takes place after the events of AFFC? I wonder what they'll keep and give up from those books, like for example brienne, she pretty much just wanders aimlessly for most of the book (aside from her talk with tarly and the last 3 or so chapters) just like cersei spends most of her chapters plotting in her head. i have to wonder how they'll translate a lot of this onto TV

oh god, that reminds me, and this may be the wrong thread but still :p i saw that they had filmed a flashbad to brandon and rickard stark's execution with aerys cast as well, but cut it for time, which made me furious when i thought of all of the stupid pointless scenes that had been added in, ros being one of the first things to come to mind :p

Image

that, making renly a total pussy (which also wasted a perfect oppritunity to avoid a stereotype and make a badass masculine gay guy, on top of taking one of my favorites from the book and making him annoying :p ), making littlefinger dumb, everything with dany and making tywin in his time with arya.. pretty much the opposite of what tywin should be :p were my biggest problems with the show so far. everything else was ok imo :p
