After three long years, Game of Thrones fans are finally being called back to Westeros. Except this time, instead of following the Starks to King's Landing and Jon Snow beyond The Wall, we're getting a front-row seat to some serious Targaryen family drama.

If HBO's new show House of the Dragon sounds thrilling now, just wait until the premiere. The epic prequel series is set 200 years before Game of Thrones during King Viserys I's rule, and it depicts the shocking events that ultimately led to a Targaryen civil war. Think questions of succession, gut-wrenching betrayals and bloody battles complete with fire-breathing dragons. (Did we mention that George R.R. Martin himself has seen all 10 episodes and declared the show "magnificent work"?) The spin-off series lands on HBO and HBO Max on August 21, but you’ll need some provisions before you check it out.

Prepare to be the envy of all your friends, courtesy of these jewel-toned dragon eggs. The wax candles arrive in a wooden box (much like Dany's own "children") and can be displayed separately or together. Light them when you're ready to dial up the ambiance.

Style the Table

Treat your guests to one epic feast on this glittering black agate cheese plate. Each slab is hand-hewn which allows for natural variations within the stone. Meanwhile, the rough edges are dipped in gold to ensure that they're fitting for Targaryen royalty.

What would a Targaryen table be without a dragon skull centerpiece? This brooding, bone-colored ornament is crafted from nontoxic resin, with jeweled eyes that seem to glow like embers. You can surround the skull with dishes to make it look like the dragon is guarding your precious treasures.

Doesn't this wine cooler look like it's carved from genuine dragonglass?
