Usually ships in:
Under the wounded pride, Will could sense something else in the older man. You could taste it; a nervous tension that came perilous close to fear.
–George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
As A Song of Ice and Fire begins, King Robert Baratheon rides north to visit his old friend Eddard Stark in Winterfell. Westeros is at peace. But this deceptive calm will not long remain.
