    Here’s a thought, but I haven’t thought through the ramifications so it might be dumb.

    Simply to avoid random kills:

    What if we asked each House assassin or whatever to kill a specific target? Then tonight when the smoke clears we’ll know which houses are in play and whether or not they get kills.

    If it’s a dumb idea, just let me know and we can pretend it never happened.

    Why would the house assassins want anyone to know they existed, if they did in fact exist?

    SUMMARY OF THE PLOT
    Robert Baratheon, the "Usurper" is the king of the seven kingdoms, of which he stole the crown from the Rhaegar Targaryen, the last (no, not really) of his house. In the books Roberts Hand (advisor) has been murdered and he calls for Ned Stark to take his place. Ned Stark soon discovers that Cersei Lannister, Roberts wife, is plotting to kill Robert and that their children are not actually Roberts but rather fruits of her incestuous relationship with her brother Jaime Lannister. Cercei murders Robert and executes Ned Stark, taking the crown for herself by making her son Joffrey king.

    This leads to widespread rebellion, as not everyone is pleased with this turn of events. Roberts brothers Stannis and Renly both gather armies to take the throne, and Neds son Robb Stark takes up arms against the Lannisters. This leads to a four way war, with each faction wanting the throne for themself (except possibly robb, who mostly wants revenge). And that is basically where we are at, I think.

    We only have speculation to go on so far.

    People have speculated that there are as few as four (4) factions and as many as 13 (based on Cheez's 3 man group).

    Pluto has stated that this is "last team standing wins" game, implying there are no bad guys, yet DA and others have stated that certain groups were more likely to be evil than others.

    Again, all we have right now is speculation.

    I'll do it

    Minor (Background) spoilers:
    Welcome to Westeros. There are a bunch of intermarried noble houses in Westeros, most prominantly, the Targaryens, The Starks, The Lannisters, and the Baratheons, and a few assorted others.

    For 300 years, the Throne has belonged to the Targaryens, who had a propensity for inbreeding, resulting in Westeros going to shit under the reign of the Mad King, Aerys Targaryen II, a crazy pyro motherfucker, who had a much less crazy and actually very noble son, Rhaegar.

    Enter our first generation of characters: Robert Baratheon, Eddard "Ned" Stark, and Tywin Lannister, the leaders of the other three prominent houses.

    What happened was this: Robert and Ned were best friends, and Robert was going to marry Ned's beautiful sister, Lyanna Stark. Enter Rhaegar - who, even though he was already married with 2 small children, kidnaps Lyanna, for unknown reasons.

    This is the last straw for Robert and Ned, who declare war on the Targaryens. During the war, at the Battle of the Trident, Robert kills Rhaegar with a mighty blow to the chest from his War Hammer. The war ends when House Lannister, known for being very rich, double-crosses the Targaryens and sacks their capital, and Jaime Lannister, the son of Tywin Lannister and a supposedly sworn bodyguard of the King Aerys II, kills the king, instead of letting him burn the city to the ground, as he wanted to, being a crazy pyro motherfucker. Lyanna also dies mysteriously, along with Rhaegar's wife and two children.

    So, Robert becomes King, and has to marry Cersei Lannister, a huge cunt and Jaime's twin sister, while Jon Arryn, Robert's father-figure, becomes his hand - basically the Chief of Staff for the King.

    Cersei however, being a huge cunt and a psyco-bitch in her own right, was sleeping with her twin brother, and her and Robert's three children aren't actually Robert's, which Jon Arryn finds out, and is soonafter killed for.

    So Robert calls up his best friend Ned, and asks him to be his new hand. However, Robert "dies mysteriously" in a hunting accident, and this is the start of the books.

    Yes, Jon Arryn was killed by his much younger wife, Lysa, who was very much in love with Petyr. I'm pretty sure that Cersei very much wanted Arryn silenced though.

    I need to reread Game, I'm curious
    Just how much Jon actually knew. It's clear that Petyr was well aware of the incest and since he guided Ned quite a bit in his investigations... it'd be kinda sad if Jon died simply so Petyr could cause some chaos to benifit him. Though we're only told that Jon is a good guy, he could have been a giant douche for all we know.

    Major Spoilers:
    Jon knew everything, because Ned found out what he knew in the course of investigating his death and following his steps and research. The key was the hair color of the Cersei's children. They're were already rumors that Cersei and Jaime were fooling around, and all of the royal children were blond, while every single member of the Baratheon dynasty had dark hair, including all of Robert's bastards.

    Was there a journal of Arryn's or something? I seem to remember him writing something cryptic that mentioned it.

    I remember Ned following in Jon's footsteps but I couldn't remember how he knew what Jon had done. Since everybody loyal to Ned was in the north at the time I was wondering just how much subtle direction or coercion of witnesses Petyr had done to point Ned in the direction he wanted him to be pointed in.

    I figure this was the course of events.

    Petyr knows everything that goes on in Westeros, but doesn't really wield any public power. So Petyr has Jon Arryn killed, knowing that he would be replaced by Ned Stark. Petyr goads Ned into finding out the secret of the Lannister's incest and feigns suprise, and because he has the city guard on his payroll, promises to helps Ned arrest Cersei. However, at the last moment, Petyr betrays Ned, and Ned is killed, but not before the incest is exposed.

    So the War of the Five Kings starts. Stannis and his estranged gay brother Renly believe they each should be King over Westeros, becuase the Lannister children are illegitimate. Robb Stark wants to be king in a new independent north, Balon Greyjoy thinks he should be King in a new independent Iron islands, and Cersei Lannister thinks her son Joffrey should be King.

    Basically at the end of the war, the only one who comes out ahead is Petyr, who now controls a huge dominion.
