Timeline You may choose any point in time to arrive in this world. The default is 298 AC (the beginning of A Game of Thrones). Some dates of interest include: 2BC- 1 AC (Aegon’s Conquest), 195 -196 AC (The Blackfyre Rebellion), 282-283 AC (Roberts Rebellion), 298-300 AC (War of the Five Kings). I : The North A cold, vast and sparsely populated land and the northernmost of the historical Seven Kingdoms. The southern section of the Neck is covered in dense and dangerous bogs while the rest is made up of pine forests, hills and snow-capped mountains. The winters are terrible. To the north is the Wall and the Night’s Watch. II : The Riverlands The Riverlands are situated to the immediate south of the North. The climate is generally fair and the lands are fertile, rich and prosperous. It has no natural boundaries and as such has been contested throughout the centuries and has frequently been a battleground. It is dominated by large rivers. It is not considered one of the traditional Seven Kingdoms. III : The Vale The Vale is situated to the east of the Riverlands. It is a land of extremely fertile valleys and large mountain ranges. Its surrounding mountains make it extremely difficult to invade. The winters are harsh and the uncivilised mountain clans are troublesome. IV : The Westerlands The Westerlands are situated to the west of the Riverlands. The richest region of Westeros due to the vast amount of gold and silver situated beneath its many hills. Dotted with mines from which the region derives its vast wealth. Reasonably fertile and easily defensible. V : The Iron Islands The Iron Islands lie to the west of the Riverlands and the north of the Westerlands. They are relatively small, rocky and barren. The Ironman tradition is one of reaving and plundering the west coast of Westeros proper. There is little wealth to be had from honest work. VI : The Reach The Reach is a large province to the south of the Riverlands and situated in the centre and south-west of Westeros. It is extremely fertile, populous and rich. It is the home of chivalry in Westeros as well as a major source of production for food and wine. VII : The Stormlands The Stormlands lie to the east of the Reach. They are so-named for the savage and frequent storms that batter the coast. It is one of the smaller regions of Westeros and is covered by stony shores, harsh mountains and large verdant forests. Rains are common and the land is reasonably fertile.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
