Spoilers for the first season only. Nothing from the books at all
That's it for spoilers.
Scenario: A genie drops you in Westeros in the Kingdom of your choice: The North, ruled by House Stark, The Vale, ruled by House Arryn, The West, ruled by House Lannister, or in Pentos, where Danaerys Targaryen is to be wed.
You arrive in Westeros in the kingdom of your choice three weeks before Robert I Baratheon departs King's Landing to offer Lord Eddard Stark the position of Hand of the King, or in Pentos a few days prior to Danaerys' wedding to Khal Drogo.
Your Goal: Survive in Westeros for the next five, turbulent years. If you do the Genie will transport you back to your present time without having aged a day, and give you twenty million dollars, if you die, you are transported home without having aged, ten minutes after you were transported, but with no extra money.
You cannot directly kill any member of the nobility. If you try the Genie will send you back home. "Direct" in this circumstance is defined as any action resulting in death which requires physical contact with the noble, either with one of your own appendages or with an object being held by said appendage.
Assume full literacy and fluency in Westerosi and Dothraki.
Aside from that, you're free to do what you want.
Assets: You can take back a cart the size of an enclosed pickup truck bed, and will be granting you a horse to pull it as well as animal husbandry skills. Q has given you $10,000 and one week to produce a list of things that he will purchase for you for you to bring with you to Westeros. "Loan" items are allowed, so that means library books etc.
How will you survive, who will you try to ally with, and what would you bring back with you?
