    He's arrived at his destination and viewers can assume he's getting mystical training?

    I want the story to cut to him occasionally for like one minute at a time but it's always just him doing some DBZ training montage, seeing how high he can power up

    yeah pretty much

    he's reached his original goal and (I can't remember how in depth they went in the last episode, prob silly to spoil, but)
    his new goal involves mental training that specifically sheds bran's physical body

    bran's role in dwd is primarily assisting theon through the godswood. they could have fit him in I think but they can also just use some generic whispering voice or whatever

    I'm wondering if they are gonna start putting in time skips. Not big ones that change everything, just a few months here and there to help explain the actors aging.

    Pretty psyched about no Bran and Hodor

    Their segments have always been pretty boring, all told

    Not sure if this has been posted before but it's a pretty cool "before they were on GoT" thing, only really knew a couple and some weren't the ones I thought they'd be

    Re-reading book 5.

    Reached the part where
    An in-hiding Tyrion takes on the name Yollo.

    That's one little fact I really hope gets left out of the show

    Yollo was the name of
    one of the people in Joffrey's fucked up wedding skit right? that was later killed for maybe being Tyrion, after Tyrion was accused?

    I don't think that was a thing on the show, so I figure there's a good chance they'll drop it

    they changed Asha's name for less

    Theory on that I picked up from somewhere. Edit: Spoilers for the last two books below.
    Jojen-paste will be replaced by Hodor-paste.

    This is probably the season im most "excited" for, due to the fact that so much of book 4/5 has varying degrees of interesting

    lots will be cut and new shit will be made up Im sure,
    I just wanna see the pit (confirmed?) and the kingsmoot (confirmed not in?) and the et tu, bowen? (lol good luck hbo)

    fingers crossed for them following the ep 9 precedent
    season 1 ep 9, stark dies
    season 2 ep 9, massive battle
    season 3 ep 9, stark (s) die
    season 4 ep 9, massive battle
    season 5 ep 9, starkgaryen dies (lol)

    Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series is a new six part episodic game series that tells the story of House Forrester, a noble family from the north of Westeros, loyal to the Starks of Winterfell. Caught up in the events surrounding the War of the Five Kings, they are thrown into a maelstrom of bloody warfare, revenge, intrigue, and horror as they fight to survive while the seven kingdoms tear themselves apart.

    You will take on the role of different members of the Forrester household, and determine their fate through the choices you make; your actions and decisions will change the story around you. Meet and interact with characters from HBO’s hit TV show. Visit King’s Landing, The Wall and other familiar locations.

    So @Grey Ghost...

    For Halloween my mother asked me to hand out candy at their place as my parents would both be away.

    She always purchases big-sized candy bars and when asked she replied..

    "Listen, its important because the kids like the big candy bars. It makes the whole thing for them. But most of all its to remind the other houses. We pass out the big candy bars. We do it because we can."

    "By the way, if any high schoolers show up you give them the pretzels. They expired a year ago. Those kids need to learn..."

    It is scary how good my mom would be at the Game of Thrones.

    So I bought the World of Fire and Ice book off Amazon because they have that 30% off any print book coupon right now and it was already half off so I got a 50 dollar book for like 16 bucks

    It is fucking dope. It is co-written by the two head people of the official Fire and Ice fansite and GRRM and is presented as a present to King Tommen (with Joffrey's name still slightly visible beneath it, after being painted over) from a Maester Yandel. It's a giant book of the history of Westeros and some of Essos as written by an in-universe character and is filled with pretty art and I love it to death

    Honestly, the art alone makes it worth it
    WOIAF-Battle-of-Trident.jpg

    how amazing is that?! There are huge amounts of other art, although some of it crosses into the more fantasy setting then the "more grounded" Game of Thrones Universe.

    Plus there is a fucking dope as fuck picture depicting Dunk and Egg events that haven't been put into a short story yet. Teasing bastards

    EDIT: oh I suppose the history is pretty fun too. It is written as a book that would be in Westeros, so lots of info is unconfirmed or theorized. It still fills in a bunch of timeline gaps, but some of the contrivances to purposely hide info (someone.. spilled ink on this page...) are at some point frustrating

    EDIT2: also, is anyone else planning to play through Iron from Ice when its released next week? Anyone care about spoilers? I'm all for open discussion as I'll be playing it the night of.

    Would anyone be interested in watching a stream of GOT Episode 1 on Friday evening? I'm waiting on a PSN card to be delivered, and most that are interested will likely have played by then.

    Okay so early episode 1 stuff
    When that soldier begged for mercy after killing my family, I was almost going to do let him go, I really was
    And then he said "I was just following orders" which I have made my hard line of "fuck you" so he had to go

    Also, I'm not sure if HOLD X TO HOLD YOUR WOUND OPEN SO THE MAESTER CAN PUT MAGGOTS IN IT is worse than the self-suture scene in Walking Dead, but it's up there

    So is episode 1 good?

    I'm going to assume yes because at the very least all the recent Telltale stuff at the very least manages to open strong.
