For casual enjoyment, here is a Baratheon Wars deck, with each card explained by the words of French essayist and philosopher Michel de Montaigne.


2x Late Summer Feast "Ease crushes us."

1x Parley at Storm's End “The most fruitful and natural exercise for our minds is, in my opinion, conversation.”

1x Forced March (R) “It is quite normal to see good intentions, when not carried out with moderation, urging men to actions which are truly vicious.”

1x Political Disaster "I have seen elsewhere houses in ruins, and statues both of gods and men."

1x Valar Morghulis “All of the days go toward death and the last one arrives there.” 1x Valar Dohaeris “But you do not die because you are sick, you die because you are alive.”

2x Barring the Gates “Sorry the man, to my mind, who has not in his own home a place to be all by himself, to pay his court privately to himself, to hide!”

1x Heads on Spikes “What is it that makes all our quarrels end in death nowadays? Whereas our fathers knew degrees of vengeance we now begin at the end and straightway talk of nothing but killing. What causes that, if not cowardice?”


3x Robert Baratheon (FotS) “On the highest throne in the world, we still sit only on our own bottom.”

3x Stannis Baratheon (FotS) “I am afraid that our eyes are bigger than our stomachs, and that we have more curiosity than understanding. We grasp at everything, but catch nothing except wind.”

3x Melisandre (FotS) “The ceaseless labor of your life is to build the house of death.”

3x Ser Richard Horpe “There is no more expensive thing than a free gift.”

3x Alester Florent “My art and profession is to live.”

3x Delena Florent “Women are not entirely wrong when they reject the moral rules proclaimed in society, since it is we men alone who have made them.”

2x Selyse Baratheon (FotOG) "Whatever these futilities of mine may be, I have no intention of hiding them any more than I would a bald and grizzled portrait of myself."

1x Ser Davos Seaworth (Core) “Valor is strength, not of legs and arms, but of heart and soul; it consists not in the worth of our horse or our weapons, but in our own.”

1x Gendry (NMG) “I had rather my son should learn in a tan-house to speak, than in the schools to prate.”

1x Moon Boy “No man is exempt from saying silly things; the mischief is to say them deliberately.”

1x Maester Cressen “If you don't know how to die, don't worry; Nature will tell you what to do on the spot, fully and adequately. She will do this job perfectly for you; don't bother your head about it.”

2x Fickle Bannerman "We are far more concerned that our name should run from mouth to mouth than under what circumstances it should do so.”

3x Acolyte of the Flame “I felt compassion for the poor people who were taken in by supernatural follies."

1x Dragonstone Convert “Not being able to govern events, I govern myself”

2x R'hllor Infiltrator “For I never see the whole of anything; nor do those who promise to show it to us.”

3x Dragonstone Faithful “The most beautiful lives, to my mind, are those that conform to the common human pattern, with order, but without miracle, and without eccentricity.”


3x Traitor to the Crown “I speak the truth, not so much as I would, but as much as I dare; and I dare a little more as I grow older.”

1x Motley "The pettiest and slightest nuisances are the most acute; and as small letters hurt and tire the eyes most, so do trifling matters sting us most.”


3x Stormlands Fiefdom "If the fates permit, he will complete this abode, this sweet ancestral retreat; and he has consecrated it to his freedom, tranquility, and leisure.”

2x In the Name of Your King! “To obey is the proper office of a rational soul.”

2x Seen In Flames "O Ruler of Olympus, why did it please thee to add more care to worried mortals by letting them learn of future slaughters by means of cruel omens! Whatever thou hast in store, do it unexpectedly; let the minds of men be blind to their future fate: let him who fears, still cling to hope!"

1x Sacrificed to the Red God “It is putting a very high price on one's conjectures to have someone roasted alive on their account.”

2x "A Cask of Ale" “One must be a little foolish if one does not want to be even more stupid.”
