    Definitive List of Plot Holes [SPOILERS]

    I know! It's really amazing. The entire show employs so many people and really gives them the opportunity to do some badass stuff with their resources and locations. I just found all the production Extras on Now from previous seasons and I'm watching them all lol. I wish they would do Revealed with S7 even tho they didn't portray the actors that well in S6 ones, it's cool from a vfx and FX standpoint). I dont know if this is their reason but that S4 bit was a small scene, knowing they wouldn't have bran S5 anyway. The s6 CotF seem closer to my interpretation of the real ones. Mistaken for children, not actual chilren And it is art, after all, why stick to the lesser version if you have a chance to redesign it that's not too distracting ya know.

    Definitive List of Plot Holes [SPOILERS]

    You are totally correct regarding the WW. My bad! I thought their skin was virtual textured, but it's actually prosthetic and virtual 'cold steam': http://nofilmschool.com/2014/07/behind-scenes-visual-effects-game-of-thrones Texturing, which I thought it was, takes a lot of time tuning and time: http://www.cgsociety.org/index.php/cgsfeatures/cgsfeaturespecial/the_top_ten_tips_of_texturing Also, wights don't require as much CG effort as ppl think either. I maintain CG was not a reason for this plot hole. Most of the show is already cgi, of course the dragons but also locations and sometimes nonmagic violence. It's about how streamlined each thing is. Stage 3 wights use green screen skins under regular costumes, the green mostly becomes black, and a little finishing touches.The more wights you see, the greater percentage of them are stage 3. When it comes to skeletons and walking dead, there are prewritten tools (code) that make it quicker and easier to employ a 'certain look'. Thry likely adjust from there but I it's covered ground. So to speak. Mostly they are costumed with prosthetics EXCEPT in Hardhome when they fall of the cliff. Overall less effort than a lot of the dragon shots and the battles. Maybe it's the prosthetics, that is some crazy skin, but the wights seem equally difficult to make with rubber and stuff. Maybe I'm wrong and production is the reason, but they definitely have the budget. If anything, it's how much time they have between seasons. MTTP, the wights HAVE to be a massive army to fulfill the plot, they kept the WW minimal as necessary for plot I guess, wtvr the reason.

    I think sexual bias. I really think it's bc GW isn't seen as manly (though I disagree). I've seen this on several forums.

    Def not. Wights get a little dead face touch up SOMETIMES, but that effect us streamlined and in wide use in the industry. Mostly they are costumed ppl walking funny. Only Hardhome had major wight CGI needs. The WW are 100% CGI (their skin, hair, eyes especially need work)

    I think we'll see more WW later. Also, how long does it take a baby WW to grow up? Plus, seems like Ceaster had a lot more daughters and wasnt always impregnating them, only occasionally. Sometimes he had to offer a goat (or is that books only)

    Good pt on the king's guard with Myrcella I dont think Roose is surprised, just disapproving in that scene. Either way, he seems more surprised as Ramsey's excessive use of torture and addiction to psychological torture. Roose has a minor occasional tendency to fuck with ppl, I think he more enjoys the triumph of his nefarious plots, rape and a little torture on the side. Ramsey is excessive and does so even when it's not prudent.

    My Redbubble profile has my fan art and collages of popular fan art on every material item they offer. After looking everywhere for the perfect GoT merch I couldn't find what I wanted. No one offered the designs I like. So I decided to put my own thing together that I would actually want to buy! Check it out here https://www.redbubble.com/people/Raeslewolhn

    Little Questions That Don't Fit Anywhere Else Part 3

    She thought she could control them, keep the upper hand. She wanted them to take out her enemies for her in a (not really) veiled way. She was wrong.

    Create your Westerosi house

    Name: House Freeland Sigil: A howling white wolf cub and a blue-green mermaid with a burning sword looking at the moon, on a field of almost-black-purple. Motto: The Moon is Our Mother Unofficial Motto: But we are not men. Location: Skane. House Sword: Dark Sister, and we have the other 200+ valyrian steel swords everyone wonders about! Other Resources: 9 ships (only 1 is large), 285 warriors (38 mounted on unicorns, 13 mounted on dolphins) and some badass powerful magic. Our Story: House Freeland was born ten thousand years (ago/before the HBO show), after the last long night of the white walkers and the pact with the Children. We accept all kinds, but we only have a Lady, never a lord. A troupe of warrior women, some are Stark, some from Lann's family, some Greys and others from other great houses and common families over the years, of many faiths. The first of our order saw what the world could be and how easily magic could be lost. We resolved to build a safe haven, known to no one but ourselves, in which to protect all manner of objects and knowledge to defeat the WW upon their inevitable return. Some of the Children remained with us as well. The first of our house decided it would also be a place to run to for those abused, broken, cast out and persecuted by the realms of men. Our numbers are maintained by liberating such people, mostly women, though a few children are even born here each generation. Those who leave know all too well how important it is to keep our secret. That's why you've never heard of us. The terror of nearby Skagos, who don't know about us either, helps with that too. We also have a small outpost in Slavers Bay/ the Bay of Dragons, from which we smuggle runaway slaves and innocent fugitives.
  12. I agree. Not my fav but I think a normal prequel move. It's a safer bet marketing wise. However, HBO might break the mold, they like to do that. Still, it makes the most sense. Edit. I take that back, I just read this EW article (GRRM says no RR). I'm not surprised he said no D&E either.
  13. I really like these ideas. Way back, answering world building questions with all the fantasygasms and drama ppl like
