In the continuing cycle of hype for "Game of Thrones," HBO released some new images of some of the grand locations in Westeros, the mythical setting of the pseudo-medieval fantasy series. Above is the castle at Winterfell, stronghold of the Stark family (the good guys). Judging by what we've seen in promos and trailers, every scene near Winterfell will be filmed through a blue lens to remind you that it's cold in the north.
More pictures on the following pages, including cool looks at King's Landing, the Wall, and Eagle's Butthole. Okay, okay: I might have made up one of those names. Just making sure you're paying attention.
King's Landing, in the south of Westeros, is where the Throne of Swords resides. It's kind of like Los Angeles: nice weather, but the people suck.
The Wall is a 700-foot barrier across the northern border of Westeros that keeps out the snow zombies and other dangers. Yes, there really are snow zombies. But don't worry, they're only active at night. (Vampire snow zombies.)
Here's another look at Winterfell, with the castle in the distance. Personally, I'd want a winter home in King's Landing.
Did I not promise you an eagle's butthole?
