    Greetings GoT fanatics, this is the 4th installment of a series of blogs revolving around Season 5: Game of Thrones and Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series.

    Well, that conclusion of last night's episode was intense. Instead of dwelling on the obvious gruesome scene, I think the "power plays" of the episode were overlooked.

    In typical fashion, Cersei Lannister is up to old tricks and succeeding. With nobody in King's Landing to put her into check, Cersei has free reign to puppet the power of the throne to her favor. Her allegiance with the High Sparrow proves fruitful as she reestablishes authority over the political landscape.

    In addition to Cersei's grand plans, her meeting with Petyr Baelish raised some interesting questions about Little…

    Warning: Contains spoilers for Season 4 and for the books

    A foreword before I get to this is that, I don't know if this guy has a fanbase or not, and if he does, please don't take this blog the wrong way. I know everyone hated Joffrey, not sure how they feel about Ramsay who is the only GoT villain as evil as Joffrey, but second only to them is Gregor Clegane, the Mountain.

    Well, anyone who's seen Season 4 will know that Joffrey is dead, killed through means of a deadly and vicious poison. And in the books, Gregor also met his end by an equally vicious, yet slower, poison: Manticore venom, when Oberyn poisons his spear and injures him before Gregor kills Oberyn. (how much you want to bet a third poison is introduced and used by someone to ki…

    Greetings GoT fanatics, this is the 3rd installment of a series of blogs revolving around Season 5: Game of Thrones and Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series.

    Last night's episode of Game of Thrones wasn't too action packed. However, there was an abundance of interesting dialogue scenes between characters. To be more precise, there was some thick awkwardness that could be cut with a knife. When Sansa Stark and Ramsay Bolton sat down to dinner with Roose Bolton and Walda Bolton, their dinner conversation was painfully difficult to watch. With Ramsay insisting that Theon Greyjoy apologize for his part in "murdering" Sansa's two brothers. The dinner was a trainwreck and the announcement of Walda's pregnancy just added fuel to the fire.

    Take a …

    Greetings GoT fanatics, this is the first of a series of blogs revolving around Season 5: Game of Thrones and Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series.

    It looks like the heat is starting to be turned up this season. In last night's episode: Sons of Harpy, we saw a decent amount of action that we have been waiting for the past few episodes. Jaime Lannister and Bronn encounter a horseback patrol on the shores of Dorne and are forced into a skirmish. However, the biggest fight so far this season occurred between the Unsullied and Sons of the Harpy. To be specific, Grey Worm and Barristan Selmy are ambushed by the Sons of Harpy and have to fend off roughly a dozen men.

    Take a look below for some of the most memorable unfair fights from the GoT uni…

    In a recent interview at New York's 92nd Street Y George R. R. Martin confirmed the connection between Game of Thrones and the Grateful Dead. "I'm certainly a fan of the Grateful Dead, My wife Paris is perhaps more of a fan of the Grateful Dead than I am."

    Weirwood trees are named after Mr. Bob Weir, Martin calls his home Terrapin Station and the Grateful Dead songs "Dire Wolf," "Cassidy" and "Dark Star" all make reference in his books.

    Why was Jaqen so disturbed when Arya said that name, asking him to kill himself, when he doesn't have an identity at all? If he isn't Jaqen H'ghar, then naming him wouldn't mean anything, so why was he so shocked about it?

    Greetings GoT fanatics, this is the first of a series of blogs revolving around Season 5: Game of Thrones and Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series.

    With last night's episode, "High Sparrow", we saw a recurring event and theme of punishment. Janos Slynt was executed by Jon Snow for refusing to obey an order given to him.

    While in the game series, we all know what happened to Ethan Forrester when he refused to bend the knee to Ramsay Bolton. Take a look below from some of the best punishment scenes from the GoT universe.





    The Walk of Punishment is experienced by Daenerys Targaryen during her visit to Astapor in her quest for an Army. She witnesses firsthand the cruel punishment the slaves endure from their master's.





    As the new Lord of Ironrath,…

    Telltale: Game of Thrones - Episode 1: Iron From Ice

    What were your answers?

    Well hello everyone! This is the beginning of a series of episode recaps that we will be posting as the game progresses. Instead of just looking at the aggregate of the entire player population of the game, we hope to see the consensus from the Wikia community. Take a look below for the major choices in the first episode, Iron From Ice.



    The episode opens up with you playing as Gared Tuttle, a squire to Gregor Forrester. Everyone is camped outside for the wedding of Edmure Tully. As you are asked to go and fetch some wine, along with another squire, Bowen. As you navigate your way through the fields of men, you notice that the House Frey men seem to be brandishing weap…

    Howdy folks, it's about that time for another episode choice recap! In the latest episode; The Sword in the Darkness, the player had to make quite a lot of tough choices. Select the choices you made below! It should be noted that there will be spoilers ahead... So avert your eyes if you do not wish to know!



    The episode starts off with a bang. The Lost Legion traps you/(Asher Forrester), Beshka, and Malcolm Branfield in a dead end of a canyon.

    Entertainment Weekly has a big spread on Season 5.

    WatchersOnTheWall.com has a full report on it with notes: http://watchersonthewall.com/hbo-wants-more-than-seven-seasons-of-game-of-thrones-new-inside-information-on-season-5/

    I have also fully read an illegally scanned copy, though I thought it would be inappropriate to just link to it. Mostly I just read this to confirm or expand upon some points that WOTW.com made, clarifying some issues. (I don't really pay for things - I am after all, a starving unemployed Historian holding only a Master's Degree in Medieval History).

    Be that as it may, I made this list to summarize all points of note -- a lot of the other stuff is just "Isn't Season 5 amazing?!" without real content.

    We're planning an upcoming video that highlights the connections to established Game of Thrones lore in "The Lost Lords ," the second episode in the Telltale Games series.

    What would you like to see included? Share in the comments!

    Here are a few examples...

    • House Forrester is featured in this episode. They were not purely invented for game, but are mentioned once in the A Song of Ice and Fire novels -- described as a minor House in the Wolfswood who serve as vassals to House Glover of Deepwood Motte.
    • Although House Forrester exists in the books, the name of their seat is first revealed here -- “Ironrath.”
    • Ironrath is situated in the Wolfswood. In season 1 of the HBO series, this is where Bran Stark is attacked by wildlings, before being rescued…

    This is the earliest manuscript outline that Martin sent to his publishers. It changed DRASTICALLY in later drafts and has little resemblance to the final version.

    Keep in mind that even, say, in Tolkien's The Lord of The Rings, "Strider" (Aragorn) started out as a Hobbit named "Trotter" who had wooden feet, because he'd been a prisoner in Mordor for a while and had his feet cut off. Tolkien had no idea who Aragorn was and it just popped up as he made later and later revisions. Also in the original Lord of the Rings outline Aragorn ended up with Eowyn, and Arwen didn't even exist. In later drafts he realized that Eowyn's love for Aragorn was really obsession, and …

    Oh Boy! For those of you who have been played the newest episode of the Telltale:GoT series, what were your choices and results from this chapter? It should be noted that there will be spoilers ahead... So avert your eyes if you do not wish to know!



    When Margaery Tyrell finishes speaking to you about your family's situation, she leaves you alone to finish writing invitations to the wedding. You are given the opportunity to go behind Margaery's back and forge a letter to possibly improve your family's situation. On the other hand, Margaery assures you that your patience will be rewarded if you wait long enough.

    The Season 5 trailer: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10152715877082734&set=vb.74133697733&type=2&theater

    We don't clearly see any Dornish characters (they are in it, but not slow lingering headshots)

    ...judging by Varys, it would seem that the entire Bastard of Blackfyre subplot with Young Griff has been cut.

    ...Jon Snow's thing with Hardhome (I guess) seems expanded a bit (Hardhome is a large wildling settlement on the east coast, the closest thing they ever had to approaching a "town" in size, but it was destroyed some centuries ago -- though now in desperation wildlings have fled to the ruins).

    Inaccurate reports said that the Pyramid of Meereen is destroyed. It is not. They're simply pulling down the harpy statues from the top, wh…

    Hello guys, this is Warmachine375, my first blog in Game of Thrones wiki and my blog is about "A possible Game of Thrones anime/animated series."

    It might sound old news to you guys if you already knew that like the anime drawings of the GoT characters (they're so awesome to look at by the way ;) Hehhehe) but I would like to have my opinions about if there's going to be an anime adaptation of HBO's Game of Thrones or probably better yet A Song of Ice and Fire novel series if George R.R. Martin allows licensing of his works to an anime studio (probably the one behind Attack on Titan/ or Akame ga Kill!) A darker more edgier anime series that we might enjoy if there's gonna be one in the future.

    It took me only a few minutes to dash this off just to clear my head.

    But I was trying to make a general listing/ranking of the worst changes the TV show made from the books. No, the argument that "the show is just different, like The Walking Dead" is facile and not really applicable here: The Walking Dead openly admits that it only loosely follows some general ideas from the source comics. The TV show is an adaptation and will be judged as an adaptation.

    Now that being said, some find it odd that I actually play devil's advocate a lot with the TV series. My general philosophy is that we need to keep our complaints "focused" on the most egregious things....the things that cannot reasonably be defended. If you lump in the reasonable changes …

    "My uncle always said that it was the sword in a man’s hand that determined his worth, not the one between his legs." – Arianne Martell

    As the title of this blog post mentions, I'm back to the wiki again and it feels great! I was lucky that I restored my account in time with the 30 day grace period, as I brought it back to life in the early days of september and "closed" it on August 10. Once it was back I immediately decided that I would not edit here until november/december. This because I wanted to read through all the five A Song of Ice and Fire novels which I already began reading in summer 2014. I finished reading the latest novel, A Dance with Dragons, at the end of october and think the novel series is simply amazing. I'm very excited …

    Oh Boy!


    It was announced/confirmed today that Telltale will be producing a Game of Thrones game. If you have ever played the Walking Dead or Wolf Among Us games, you will know how emotionally investing these games can be. Choices you make ultimately affect outcome of relationships, plot and future episodes. Here is a brief description of the game's setting and situation;

    Based on HBO's award-winning television drama, Game of Thrones - A Telltale Games Series tells the story of House Forrester. Caught up in the events of The War of the Five Kings, they are placed in a precarious position where members of the household must do everything they can to prevent the house from meeting its doom.

    Well I'm not much for "blogging", but after getting into the books after a painfully long wait for the next season to come out I thought it would be nice to write down some of my thoughts after being a show-first consumer for the benefit of the two people reading this. You're welcome. Also I have no one else to share my views with as none of my friends are nerdy enough to look into this show as much as I and scoff whenever I mention the books. I suppose that's what you get for having illiterate friends!

    The concept of a story being told through two very different mediums has always intrigued me. Mostly what people view the characters as after reading the books and watching the show/film. If you read the book first, then watch the show, when…

    We all know Game of Thrones is full of talented actors who are actually pretty great at other things. For example, Maisie Williams is a great dancer. HOWEVER, did you know that there are two pretty great singers in the cast?? These two characters have sort of minor roles, but are actually two of our favorites in the series! Who are they, you ask?

    The two talented singers we are talking about are Jacob Anderson (whose stage name is Raleigh Ritchie) who plays Grey Worm and Carice van Houten who plays Melisandre! Why are we sharing this? Because we just discovered their music videos! Check them out below and then start writing your petition to HBO for a Game of Thrones musical episode in the next season!
