There's a bunch more major characters but these were the best pics. Eddard's wife Catelyn, and their kids are all also major players, really there's too many characters to list.

Also I guess there are some books or something that are good
This thread is better
Also I want the next fucking book already.
I will NOT let you topple my threadasty!
But you have the superior OP.
I was thinking of asking for a good book for Christmas that will be actually entertaining.

These books are good, yes.
But you will be pissed at the end because the writer hasn't finished anything and it doesn't look like he will for a long time.
I'll make my OWN thread! With blackjack! And hookers!
In fact, forget the thread and blackjack!
By the by, my GoT has this cover:
Rather fond of it.
that looks awful
Also, Bogey, no word on that request? :P
give me one sentence from these books that will make me watch the show
other than the fact that peter dinklage is in it and he is one of the best actors ever
Well there's one that I know 100% would get you to watch it but it's from the 3rd book and is kind of a semi-big spoiler.
Let me see if I can think of another that would be less drastic, but I'll use that one if I need to.
I know what TLB wants
Me too! I have all the others with the (in my opinion) nicer British cover designs; but I do have an abiding fondness for my worn copy of AGoT with that cover. I bought it second hand about two or three years ago, and I must have read it ten times since then. The pages turn so easily and flip open to my favourite parts with little or no effort.
they made her older right
all the kids were made a few years older.
Robb, Jon, and Dany are all in the 17 range now rather than ~14
the younger kids were aged up similarly
There are no men like me. There's only me.
Rhaegar fought valiantly, Rhaegar fought nobly, Rhaegar fought honorably. And Rhaegar died.
Those are brave men. Let's go kill them.

anyone who may be my satan should ask bale what it is I will dig
Or I will be disappoint.
That's Jon and Bran
I need to see the best
theyre all so great and jaime is incredible
But now NotYou reminded me of the bullshit cliffhanger in the books and I am disappoint again.
Stop saying that
This is the one Bale considered telling you, but it is super-spoilery for the end of book 3:
Yeah me too.
