Some quick background info
For Season 8 you will select the  characters you believe stand the best chance of surviving the series finale.
To make it a challenge we narrowed it to a pool of 35 characters who will primarily be on the front lines, or facing the dangers of court (so no one will be nabbing Hot Pie, Daario, Little Sam, or the freshly widowed Melessa Tarly). And, if you like the Night King so much here he is! Pick him if you dare.
These are all characters last known to be alive on the show and exercising some level of autonomy. If you pick one and we end up never hearing from them again in all of season 8, then congratulations, you guessed correctly.
For the record, alive is loosely defined here since one of our characters is an ice demon who commands an undead host, and another is a Frankenstein's monster of a man. We're currently betting on the status of these two only being able to go further down hill from where they're currently at – The Night King exploding into icy CGI like past White Walkers, and Gregor turning into some kind of meaty pile of flesh and armor that’s possibly burning.
If at any point it gets weird and something unforseen happens we'll do our best to make the fairest judgment call possible.
In terms of resurrection we're keeping it simple even if it violates canon:
If a character comes back via Night King ice magic as a wight then they're dead.
If a character comes back through R'hollr fire magic and they're still themselves (ex: Jon & Beric) then they're fine and they count as being alive.
Again, if something crazy and new happens... we'll have to get back you.
Just like for Season 7 we'll be organizing participants into divisions. Season 7 had 78 participants - 6 divisions of 13. Right now we'll look to cap the final season at 105 participants (which ideally translates to 7 divisions of 15).
As always this is a free event. We will implement a series of tiebreakers to ensure each division only has a single winner.
Prizes for the Seaon 8 Survivor Pool are currently TBD.
