Showrunner David Benioff jokingly suggested " The Sopranos in Middle-earth " as Game of Thrones ' taglinereferring to its intrigue-filled plot and dark tone in a fantasy setting of magic and dragons.
The series is generally praised for what is perceived as a sort of medieval realism. Martin set out to make the story feel more like historical Boys & Girls - My Baby Wants To Eat Your Pussy - Ignorance & Vision than contemporary fantasy, with less emphasis on magic and sorcery and more on battles, political intrigue, and the characters, believing that magic should be used moderately in the epic fantasy genre.
A common theme in the fantasy genre is the battle between good and evilwhich Martin says does not mirror the real world. He introduced gray tones into a black-and-white universe. In early seasons, under the influence of the A Song of Ice and Fire books, main characters were regularly killed off, and this was credited with developing tension among viewers.
Although the first season closely follows the events of the first novel, later seasons have made significant changes. According to David Benioff, the series is "about adapting the series as a whole and following the map George laid out for us and hitting the major milestones, but not necessarily each of the stops along the way".
The novels and their adaptations base aspects of their settings, characters, and plot on events in European history. A principal inspiration for the novels is the English Wars of the Roses  — between the houses of Lancaster and Yorkreflected in Martin's houses of Lannister and Stark.

Martin's literary agent about the books he represented and became interested in A Song of Ice and Fireas he had been a fan of fantasy fiction when young but had not read the books before. The literary agent then sent Benioff the series' first four books.
Weiss, and suggested that they adapt Martin's novels into a television series; Weiss finished the first novel in "maybe 36 hours". According to Benioff, they won Martin over with their answer to his question, " Who is Jon Snow's mother?
Martin, author . Before being approached by Benioff and Weiss, Martin had had other meetings with other scriptwriters, most of whom wanted to adapt the series as Game Of Thornes - Tyrone Hendrix - Rhythm On Life Vol.
1 feature film. Martin, however, deemed it "unfilmable" and impossible to be done Game Of Thornes - Tyrone Hendrix - Rhythm On Life Vol. 1 a feature film, stating that the size of one of his novels is as long as The Lord of the Ringswhich had been adapted as three feature films.
Benioff added, "a fantasy movie of this scope, financed by a major studio, would almost certainly need a PG rating. That means no sex, no blood, no profanity.
Fuck that. It's too adult. The level of sex and violence would never have gone through. The series began development in January The intention was for each Werewolves - Fraternal Twin - Skin Gets Hot to yield a season's worth of episodes.
The first and second drafts of the pilot script by Benioff and Weiss were submitted in August  and June respectively. Although HBO liked both drafts,   a pilot was not ordered until November ;  the — Writers Guild of America strike may have delayed the process.

Before his promotion, Vanessa Taylor a writer during the second and third seasons worked closely with Benioff and Weiss.
Dave Hill joined the writing staff for the fifth season after working as an assistant to Benioff and Weiss. Benioff and Weiss sometimes assign characters to particular writers; for example, Cogman was assigned to Arya Stark for the fourth season.

After these individual outlines are complete, they spend another two to three weeks discussing each main character's individual arc and arranging them episode by episode.
