    [Spoilers] Rant and Rave Without Repercussion

    I guess the season finished with an Auntie climax. (Stolen from a friends Facebook post.)

    Did Littefinger say that the dagger is Valyrian steel and can cut through armour like it's paper? Or have I misremembered? If I haven't, then how in the name of the Seven did it not cut through Cat's fingers when she stopped the blade with her hands? Is it a VS blade in the books?

    Sure it's fantasy, right?? Oh, and I totally forgot about this. Evidence that the Lannisters do indeed have a time machine of some sorts. Tommen Baratheon and Martyn Lannister is the same person. My better half reminded me again tonight when I was bitching about the show. Watch him reappear as another Lannister in the next season.

    [Spoilers] Rant and Rave Without Repercussion

    Everyone has pretty much summed up my feelings on this. After Season 5 I stopped watching. I only watched the sixth series a few months ago as my girlfriend wanted me to watch the new series with her, so I reluctantly did so. As someone said in last weeks thread, I'm glad it has gotten so ridiculous that it means most of this crap won't appear in Winds. I also criticised last weeks episode for it's VFX. I guess I saw where all that lovely budget went. Still, to piss it all up in one awesome battle at the expense of some key character points (Ghost) still doesn't justify it for me. Again, this is just all visual pleasure with zero character development. I hope Jamie is dead now but I really don't think that D&D have the balls to kill him now, or anyone that's a main character, yet this was the kind of realism (that no one is safe) that made the whole thing amazing and unpredictable in the first place.

    With regards to Ghost not being there, that sucks. Yes, CG dragons cost money, but come on, the Rock and Highgarden looked like crap. They were pretty much just matte paintings. The animals are the biggest part of CG (especially fur, so I get why they'd rather do dragons that wolves), but Ghost is such an important part of the character of Jon that it's like taking away the soul of the character. Why bother having the wolves past of the story, really? As someone who has done some VFX freelancing, yes, this stuff is expensive and takes time, but, if one guy can do this on his own, then why the hell can't the VFX firms do at least something better with a much larger budget? (And this is using technology from almost 10 years ago.) https://www.fxguide.com/featured/one_man_against_attila_the_hun/
  8. You need to update the World Of Ice And Fire section as it still says it's to be released in Summer or Autumn 2014.

    I just got my Lands Of Ice And Fire this week and I came across The Mountains Of The Morn. Where I'm from is called The Mourne Mountains. The very mountains that inspired C.S. Lewis to create Narnia.

    Someone mentioned the Ruby Ford a few pages back which made me think of the Rubicon. Events at both rivers changed the course of both histories.
