Focus Home Interactive has unfurled new media for Cyanide Studio's Game of Thrones RPG, this time giving fans a little history lesson on the Westeros town of Riverspring. Learn why Riverspring needs a hero (and why you should even care) in this gloomy cut-scene trailer:

Riverspring may look like your run-of-the-mill sleepy medieval town, but this is one sleepy medieval town with a past. In addition to being one of the many Westeros locales featured in Cyanide's upcoming adventure, it is also the former home of red priest Alester Sarwyck, one half of the game's main characters. As the trailer explains, players will be drawn to Riverspring following the death of Alester's father, Lord Sarwyck, who's passing has left the town without a leader.

Will Alester reclaim the throne? Will Lord Sawyck's death be avenged? What's up with that shady bald guy at 0:23? These mysteries and more will be revealed when Game of Thrones arrives for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC this May.

    So I have a month or two to re-read the books and watch the series again... Grinding time.
