    The ASOIAF wiki thread

    @Rhaenys_Targaryen We should reconsider the date of Doom on the wiki. Is it 114 BC or 102 BC? It all depends on how you interpret "Twelve years before the Doom of Valyria (114 BC)", whether the "(114 BC)" refers to "Twelve years before the Doom of Valyria" or "Doom of Valyria". I asked several Americans, all agreed with 102 BC. @Werthead also used 102 BC in his blog. Also, before the world book, a RPG book with source from GRRM said the Doom was a hundred years before Conquest. Conquest started in 2 BC, exactly fit 102 BC.
  2. Casey Bloys said “We look forward to exploring the origins of House Targaryen and the earlier days of Westeros along with Miguel, Ryan and George.” Looks like S1 would focus on Conquest.

    GRRM / Mountain Minions

    Mystery solved! https://grrm.livejournal.com/551218.html https://tribalcollegejournal.org/george-r-r-martin-launches-new-scholarship-at-the-institute-of-american-indian-arts/ Sid is the lady with red hair and tattooed arms who accompanied GRRM during Worldcon and many recent events. Only Andrea I'm not sure, maybe she's this one: https://www.theverge.com/2019/4/4/18292057/watch-game-of-thrones-george-rr-martin-marlon-james-fantasy-literature-black-leopard-live-panel

    Copyright issues with images on the wiki

    In a Marc Simonetti interview, he hinted copyright of TWOIAF arts belongs to GRRM. https://www.lagardedenuit.com/interview-de-marc-simonetti-2018/ On the copyright page of TWOIAF, it says So all the rest images are George's, I'd assume.

    Dance of the Dragons Pilot Near Orders

    I guess they want to include GOT in the title, but GOT:tDoD looks too long. So maybe something like GOT:Dragonlore?

    Dance of the Dragons Pilot Near Orders

    Latest NaB claimed EW report more complete than Deadline/THR, and only linked EW, so definitely a Dance show instead of Conquest.

    Likely, but not necessarily. His father could be defeat in Robert's Rebellion, or other conflicts.

    Small Questions v. 10106

    When Marc Simonetti drew a white flag in his Theon at the Neck image for the ASOIAF calendar, GRRM told him to use rainbow flag. So the Ironborn (and presumably Northmen) recognize that too.

    affc only says Baelor had been eight years a hostage in Oldtown, which could well be before the Rebellion and his father's death. Given he was named Baelor, I think his father also believed in Faith and sent him to Oldtown for alliance.

    Dance of the Dragons Pilot Near Orders

    I think the prequel would focus on Dance as well. But apparently THR thinks otherwise: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/game-thrones-fire-blood-prequel-explained-1239299 Will they make the Targaryens people of color? After all, GRRM himself said it could be an interesting twist.
  12. Jonathan just shared them at a con. https://twitter.com/bcsweb Like @Ran said, several place names are changed. It seems Gornath, Stygai and Qolahn experienced name changes.

    The ASOIAF wiki thread

    I wonder if Alysanne stayed alone in Dragonstone for half a year in the German version, namely, "At long last, he sent for his queen. Alysanne Targaryen and her dragon, Silverwing, departed Dragonstone within an hour of his summons, after having been apart from the king for nigh on half a year." I think 11 is correct. (The novella says 12, English version F&B says 11.) Maegor was born in 12 AC, making him turning 11 in 23 AC at the proposal.

    Wow, the German version is exactly the same as the French one. So it must be from the draft. How does that chapter end in German? Is it something like "All this pleased King Jaehaerys, but none of it pleased him half so much as the gift that Queen Alysanne gave him several moons later, when she told him she was with child. Thus 50 AC ended in celebrations, as it had begun." Another draft error is the Grand Maester Clegg came to KL at 33 AC issue, which is present in both Russian and French translation. (And probably in German as well) Do you happen to know other interesting deviations in the German version that could be from the draft? Or is there a German F&B errata discussing thread, so I can find them by myself.

    So the German translation is also different, like the French one? I think they both based on an early draft.
