    This is the houses you can choose:

    Stark:

    The Stark House is one of the great houses of Westeros. Rule over the vast northern region from their headquarters, Winterfell.

    It is descended from the First Men and dates from the Age of Heroes. Its founder, Brandon the Builder, is one of those who created the Night Watch after the Long Night. According to the legend, Brandon helps the giants and children of the forest to build the Wall. He then built the ancestral seat of his house, Winterfell, and was first king of the north.

    The Stark's motto is "Winter is Coming", which could be a warning and their emblem represents a giant wolf.

    Aegon the Conqueror, a Targaryen, ends up putting an end to the reign of the kings of the Winter. With his dragons, he destroyed armies. King Torrhen Stark bent his knee and swore allegiance to the Targaryen dynasty. The Stark continued to rule their land, but only as "protectors" of the North.

    It is an old family, respectful of its rich history and traditions. Its members devote themselves to fierce devotion.

    Traditionally, the Stark House has always been at the side of the Night Guard to fight against the attacks of places beyond the Wall, those of the others at the time of the King of the Night, but especially those of the Wildling. All these attacks break on the Wall, or on Winterfell. The Stark House and Night Watch including a long and old collaboration, and mutual respect.



    Targaryen:

    Targaryen House is an old big house in Westeros. The family comes from ancient Valyria, which escaped the scourge that wiped out the entire city. They lived for centuries on Peyredragon Island until Aegon the Conqueror and his sisters, riding their dragons, managed to conquer the Seven Kingdoms.

    The Targaryen era on the Iron Throne lasted for nearly three hundred years. They knew several rebellions, like the Rebellion of Robert which put an end to the regent dynasty. They reigned at Port-Real, Peyredragon, and Lestival. The Targaryen motto is "Fire and Blood" and their emblem represents a three-headed dragon.

    Targaryen House is famous in many ways. First of all, it is the family that has kept the kingship for several hundred years, so much so that one speaks of the "Targaryen Dynasty" when one refers to the household. This noble family is from Valyria, where it appears at the end of the Dark Ages. The Targaryen lived for decades in Peyredragon, riding dragons to prepare for the conquest of the Seven Crowns.

    The particularity of the house Targaryen is also at the level of the way of life of the family. Indeed, each king has a nickname representing his way of governing but also its symbolic peculiarity. Thus, Aegon was considered the "Conqueror" while his successor, Maegor bore the title of "Cruel". The nicknames do not stop at the characters and so, found Aegon III Targaryen said the "Dragonbane" and even Daenerys Targaryen nicknamed "The Mother of Dragons" or "The Burnt One". The Targaryen beliefs have always been oriented towards the symbolism of fire. Thus, the funeral of a Targaryen always ends with a funeral pyre. Many legends refer to the Mother of the Dragon as a lady who does not suffer the burning of the flames; it is about Daenerys, who will have a leading role in the reconquest of the kingdom of the Seven Crowns with the help of the dragons.

    The end of the Targaryen dynasty took place when King Robert Baratheon overthrew Aerys II Targaryen during the rebellion of the year 282. It was the last Targaryen king of the dynasty, and the desire for reconquest is at the heart of the concerns of the iron throne.

    This family is also known as the incest family.


    Lannister:

    The Lannister House is one of the great houses of Westeros and also the present royal house of the Seven Crowns. They reign over the vast area of Western Lands from their headquarters, Castral Roc, a castle overlooking Port-Lannis.

    Blond, tall and handsome, the Lannisters contain the blood of Andals adventurers who carved a mighty kingdom in the hills and valleys of the west.

    The Lannisters reigned as King of the Rock until the Targaryen Conquest, but they were able to retain the title of Overlord of the West. The house had a hard time during the reign of Lord Tytos, but the power of his former glory was taken over by his son, Lord Tywin. His daughter Cersei is the queen of King Robert Baratheon, while his twin Ser Jaime is a Knight of Royal Guard Robert. Family members tend to have golden hair and emerald green eyes.

    The motto of the Lannisters is "Hear me Roar! However, their unofficial motto, as well known, is "A Lannister always pays his debts". Their emblem represents a lion.



    Tyrell:

    The Tyrell House was one of the great houses of Westeros. They ruled over the vast region of the Bief from their headquarters, Hautjardin, a castle on the banks of the River Mander.

    Tyrell's motto is "Higher, Stronger" and their emblem represents a rose.

    The Tyrell long supported the Crown and were the governor of the South.

    The Tyrell House is the second richest house in Westeros, after the Lannister House, and is the one with the largest army, although the soldiers of the Bief are reputed not to be very effective in combat.


    Night's Watch:

    The Night Guard, also known as the Guard, is an order whose mission is to defend the Wall, the great fortress that serves as the border north of the Seven Crowns, and to protect the Seven Kingdoms from what exists beyond from the wall. The foundation of the Guard dates from the Age of Heroes, when the Others were banished.

    The Night Watch is probably the oldest order of the Seven Crowns and has survived the fall of the First Men's kingdom, the invasion of the Andals and the Conquest. It was founded about 8000 years ago, after the Long Night. Under the aegis of the eternal night that lasted a generation, the Others invaded Westeros from the Eternal Winterlands, until they were defeated by the men of the Guard during the Battle of the Dawn. After they had repulsed them, Brandon the Builder built the Wall to protect the Seven Crowns. During the Age of Heroes, the Forest Children gave the guards about one hundred obsidian daggers, or dragonglass, each year.

    When the thirteenth Lord Commander of the Night Watch appointed himself King of the Night, the others attacked and were repulsed again. Since then, the only attacks that were reported came from the Free People, commanded by the King from beyond the Wall. Little by little, the Guard forgot its main objective, to fight the Others, and contented itself only to repel the savages. The centuries passed, the objectives of the Guard became less obvious and their power diminished. It has so far never obtained the help of the Seven Crowns. Only the North, especially Stark House, still remembers the past, although some believe that the Others are just scary stories for children.

    At the time of its greatness, the Guard had 10,000 men. At the time, Northern lords considered it an honor to serve on the Wall. This is the reason why many noble children were sent to serve in the Guard. 300 years after the conquest of Aegon I Targaryen, only three castles remain and the Guard now has only a thousand men, who for the most part are only criminals forced to take the black to avoid the trouble of death or castration. In 300, after the Conquest, when the Guard had to choose a new Lord Commander after the death of Jeor Mormont, the total number of votes barely reached 588. This highlights the enormous losses suffered by the Guard after the Great Exploration and battle against the savages. From now on no more than 600 brothers defend the whole Wall.

    Being a member of the Night Watch means being until death. If you have come voluntarily, you are free to leave the wall during your training session, but once you have been sworn to the Guard, desertion is punishable by death. The Night's Watch is usually made up of criminals and is sent to the Wall to be punished instead of executed, in case of serious crimes. The nobles of the North traditionally consider it an honor to serve on the Wall; many children from northern families, who do not have the right to inherit the land, voluntarily take the black jacket. Most Southerners serving nobles were sent there because they fought on the side of the losers of a war or were the victims of political plots. The men of the Night Watch are dressed all in black, a tradition that has earned them the nickname "crows". Although some use this name pejoratively, many in the Night Watch have adopted the term for their own use. They are also known as sworn brothers, as are members of the Royal Guard.

    The wishes of the Night Watch are: "Night is gathering, and here begins my guard. Until I die, I will ride it. I will not take a wife, will not hold earth, nor will I give birth. I will not wear a crown, will not gain glory. I will live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watchman on the ramparts. I am the fire that blazes against the cold, the light that reignites the dawn, the horn that shakes the sleepers, the protective shield of the Human Kingdoms. I devote my existence and my honor to the Night's Watch, I wish them for this night as for all the nights to come. "


    Wildling/Free People:

    The "Free People" is the term used to refer to people who live beyond the Wall. People south of the wall see them as barbarians and call them savages/Wildling, while free people think of southerners that they are weak and soft.

    The Free People are descended from the First Men who came to Westeros during the Dawn Age. Because of their isolation from the rest of Westeros, savages remain free people, nobility and allegiances do not exist in their society. They choose their leader, and can change their mind at any time. They believe that the gods gave the land to all men, while the kings of the Seven Crowns appropriated the territories with their wreaths and iron swords. Their society is organized into tribes and clans scattered in hundreds of small villages, each with its own practices and customs. Some tribes speak languages different from others.

    The laws are basic and there is almost no property right. They take what they can and keep what they can, following the customs of the First Men. Although many languages coexist, the most spoken is the old language of the First Men. The most important thing is that someone keep his word.

    In general, the savages are worshipers of the Old Gods, but there are cults of the underground dark gods.

    The Free People hate, above all, the men of the Night Watch, more than the inhabitants of the North. Crows, as they call it, are the main obstacle north of the Wall. However, even between savages and crows, there is often cooperation; some lost brothers have been helped by savages, and the Guard sometimes takes wildchildren and raises them into brothers of the Guard.


    Martell:

    The Martell House was a big house in Westeros. They ruled the vast region of Dorne from their seat, Lancehelion, a castle in the extreme south-east of the continent.

    During the conquest of Aegon, Dorne resisted King Targaryen's efforts to annex the area to the Seven Crowns. A wedding alliance between a Targaryen king and a Dornian princess will eventually bring the region under the Iron Throne.

    The motto of the Martell is "Unsworn, Undefeated, Intact" and their coat of arms is a golden spear piercing a red sun against an orange background. These symbols come from the fusion of the original Martell coat of arms (a yellow arrow) with the emblem of Princess Nymeria, to symbolize the marriage of the warrior queen Mors Martell.

    The Martell House has long reigned over Dorne. The house was founded by Morgan Martell, an adventurer Andal, who led the Martell to victory against the First Men. The Martell did not reign as kings, but as vassals.

    In the year 273, Oberyn and Elia Martell went to Castral Roc. Instead of being married to Jaime Lannister, Elia was offered in marriage to Rhaegar Targaryen. In her victory at the Harrenhal tournament, Rhaegar made Lyanna Stark the "queen of love and beauty" to the detriment of Elia. However, a year later, Prince Rhaegar apparently abducted Lyanna, triggering Robert Baratheon's rebellion. At the time, the Martell still supported King Aerys Targaryen, known as the "Mad King", despite the fact that he held Elia and her children hostage in the Red Keep. At the siege of Port-Réal, the ultimate battle of the war, Elia Martell and her children were savagely murdered by Gregor Clegane and Amory Lorch. Following this, Oberyn Martell set himself the goal of continuing the war on behalf of Prince Viserys Targaryen, but the diplomatic ventures between Jon Arryn and Doran Martell put an end to his hopes. Although the Martell swore allegiance to the new king, Robert 1st Baratheon, the latter still retained a share of hatred and hostility towards the Lannisters.



    Bolton:

    The Bolton House is known for its horrifying practices of skinning, especially illustrated practice on their coat of arms, which illustrates a skinned man on a black background. It is said that the Bolton abandoned this practice by swearing allegiance to Stark House. Eddard Stark made this practice intolerable, but Bolton House continued to use it on his prisoners. This practice is worth it to be particularly despised among other houses in the North.

    The motto of the Bolton is "Our blades are sharp" and their emblem represents a skinned man.

    The founding of Bolton House dates back to the early years of the Age of Heroes, during which the First Men kept fighting each other. The Bolton have long opposed attempts by their Stark rivals to unify the North under their rule, killing Stark and keeping their skins as trophies according to rumors.

    The Boltons, however, were forced to swear allegiance to Stark House by abandoning their skinning practice as a sign of their submission. The Bolton have long confronted the Stark during history, even threatening to burn Winterfell during the reign of Edrick Barbeneige. During a rebellion at Bolton House, Stark forces besieged Fort Terror for two years before the house surrendered to Harlon Stark and returned to Stark domination.

    When Eddard Stark summoned his bannerets during the rebellion led by Robert Baratheon, Roose Bolton took up arms and was notably present at the Battle of Trident.



    Baratheon:

    The Baratheon House of Port-Réal is the dynasty sitting on the Iron Throne from the year 283 to 303. It succeeded the Targaryen dynasty after the Rebellion of Robert and was followed by the Lannister dynasty following the suicide of Tommen Baratheon, last representative of the house.

    It is a junior branch of the Baratheon House from the Storm Lands. It is founded when Robert Baratheon emerged victorious from his revolt, 17 years before the events of the series, before settling in Port-Réal and then married Cersei Lannister to strengthen his power.

    Three children are officially born of their union (Joffrey, Myrcella, Tommen), but prove to be actually bastards of Cersei and her own brother, Jaime Lannister. At the death of Robert I, the house passes under the total control of the Lannister who will lead with an iron fist the Seven Crowns, although his two successors are still kings of the house Baratheon of Port-Réal.

    The Baratheon house died with the death of Tommen.



    Arryn:

    The Arryn House is one of the great houses of Westeros. They reign over the vast region of Val d'Arryn from their headquarters of the Eyrié, a castle located in the Mountains of the Moon.

    The motto of the Arryn is "As High as Honor" and their emblem represents a hawk.

    The Arryns descend directly from the Andale invasion and are the second oldest house in Westeros to ever rule (after the Stark)


    Greyjoy:

    Greyjoy House is one of the great houses of Westeros. It reigns on the Iron Islands, a set of rocky islands famous for the naval constructions that are carried out from its seat, Pyk. The house is made up of sailors who sail on the seas, like to explore and skim the seas, but also to loot; they honor the Fer-born traditions.

    The Greyjoys have been demanding the independence of the Iron Islands since the Five Kings War, but the coup organized by Euron Greyjoy separated the House into two camps.

    The Greyjoy motto is "We do not sow," although the phrase "what is dead can not die" is also well known. Their emblem represents a kraken.

    Greyjoy House survives by looting its neighbors. They are conquerors who like to explore and navigate the seas. Greyjoy House was created by the Ironborn people, a proud people who are supposed to descend from the Gray King, a king of the Iron Islands who would have been married to a mermaid and who worshiped the Drowned God.



    Frey:

    House Frey was the big house of Conflans.

    It possessed a strategic territory, which keeps the passage between North and Conflans. Their ancestral seat is the Twins, a large bridge that spans the Verfurque. For many years they tried to invade the territory of the Reed, without success.

    The motto of the Frey is "Always united", quite ironic given the frequent struggles between Frey members. Their emblem represents two towers.

    The Frey House was a noble house of Conflans that appeared about six hundred years before the Five Kings War. Their headquarters are in the Twins. The Freys have been the vassals of the Tully house, the lords of the Trident since the Targaryen conquest. During Robert's Rebellion, Lord Walder Frey was late in organizing forces to lend a hand to his overlord Hoster Tully during the Battle of the Trident. For this insolence, Lord Holster scoffed Lord Frey by calling him Walder the Tardif, to Walder's great displeasure.



    Tully:

    The Tully House is a Great Exiled House of Westeros. They ruled over the vast region of Conflans from their ancestral seat, Vivesaigues, a castle located west of Harrenhal and south of the Twins. The present Lord is Lord Edmure Tully, son of Hoster Tully.

    The motto of the Tully is "Family, Duty, Honor" and their emblem represents a trout.

    Catelyn Stark, the mother of Robb, Sansa, Arya, Bran and Rickon, is from this House.

    I'll try to show up, although a suggestion, instead of choosing a "house", someone will be appointed to assign everyone into a certain house, so it'd be fair, it won't allow the best players to stack in the same team and make the competition well.. less competitive.
