Riverrun: New Game of Thrones Season 3 Set Photos

Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones Season 3, which is basically the adaptation of the first half of the third book of A Song of Ice and Fire series -- A Storm of Swords -- is heading to Riverrun. Just like the previous two seasons, Season 3 will be composed of 10 hefty episodes and will premiere on March 31, 2013. A very long way from now.

For some of you who don't know, Rivverun is a castle that serves as the ancestral seat of the House Tully. This castle is located in Riverlands, where Tumblestone and Red Fork rivers meet. This is where Catelyn (Lady Stark of Winterfell) and Lysa (Lady Arryn of the Eyrie) grew up together with soon to be Lord Tully: Edmure, their brother.

This location in Westeros should have been introduced in the earlier seasons, but the team behind the show found it fit to reveal the set in the upcoming third season. It was such a nice move actually since many viewers would have been overwhelmed by too much geography, mythology, politics and history if revealed in one outburst. I am really excited to finally see this set in the actual series. The intricate details and designs simply show the production designer's dedication to put our imagination into physical structures.
