Winter is coming long before we get Game of Thrones Season 3, which won't premiere until March 31, 2013.

It is known.

It is known even more now that HBO has set the premiere date at the center of its simple but effective new teaser poster.

Nice to see those three swords subtly referencing the title of George R. R. Martin's third book, A Storm of Swords. GoT Season 3 will include roughly the first half of that book, with the rest coming later. 

What do you think of the poster? Would you hang it on your wall, if you do that kind of thing? Do you wish they had included some cast images or a quote or are you good, for now?
