Squire (4/8)

  1. After Daemon's return to the capital in 111 AC, he apparently regain a place on the small council. What does "his seat" refer to here ? Was he reinstated as master of coin/master of laws or just on the small council as simply an advisor ? I know the Commander of the City Watch doesn't have a permanent seat on the small council but maybe Daemon did. Any insight would be appreciated.
  2. I wasn’t thinking of going that far. Since the different branches of the family tree goes back to Jaehaerys I and Alysanne, they could be the starting point. Although the general audience is not very familiar with those two, starting with Aegon the Conqueror might be better.
  3. One thing you have to keep in mind is that unlike the poeple in this forum, those reactors (for the most part) have not read the books and do not remember what the first teaser from 7 months ago contained. But your remarq is valid and I think the "200 years ago" titlecard should be back again for the next teaser/trailer (that I'm guessing will drop around the week-end of Comic Con). Or the first episode could have a title card at the beginning to avoid any confusion for the casual audience, kind like the first episode of GOT had a text mentioning the different places: "Winterfell", "King's Landing, capital of the Seven Kingdoms" and "Pentos, across the Narrow Sea". Also I really like the idea of having a Targaryen family tree as the intro. That would be helpful for the casual audience. Especially since the Targaryen and Velaryon names are very similar and they all have the same hair color. This tree would evolve throughout the series once a new character is born or someone is getting married or dies.
  4. We are four months away from the premiere, it shouldn't be too long before the trailer is released. I'm guessing around mid-may.
  5. IIRC the actors for Jaime, Cersei, Tyrion, Jon, and Daenerys were paid 1M$ per episode by the end of the show. That's a total of 5+3+6+6+6=26M$ to pay only those five main actors in season 8, almost a third of the total budget of the final season.
  6. @NúmenorASOIAF You can request an account here.
  7. I don't know if that has already been discussed or not but I have a question regarding the Fourth Blackfyre Rebellion (236 AC) and King Aegon V's sons. Why would Aegon want take his three sons with him in battle ? They were quite young at the time: 12 to 16 years old for Duncan, 11 years old for Jaehaerys, 8 years old for Daeron. I'm sure they didn't actually fight and stayed at a relative safe distance from combat. Was this just a publicity stunt/pro-Targaryen propaganda move from Aegon V ? Him riding with his sons after a victory over the Blackfyres.
  8. I agree with you. The San Diego Comic Con is scheduled for the 21-24 July this year, a month ahead from the premiere. That's a really good time for HBO to release the final trailer. As for the first trailer, I guess it all depends on how much of the CGI will already been done by May or June.
  9. Why would HBO leave a "cryptic message" on the GOT Twitter account but nothing on the HOTD account ? I'm not keeping my hopes up for a teaser or trailer tonight.
  10. Wow I didn't realized that! Ryan Condal and Matt Smith weren't kidding when they told in podcasts a while back the filming for HOTD was massive and one (if not the) biggest they have ever been part of. Hopefully the final product is up to amount of work provided.
  11. I still don't understand this one. Why did Alysanne do this ? She had a good relationship with Lord Alaric Stark but he died 15 years prior to this betrothal. Did Alysanne really think the best option to maintain a good relationship with the North was to betroth her 15 years old daughter to an elderly lord ? Why not betroth Viserra to Theomore's grandson (or his great-grandson Desmond depending on the timeline) instead ?
  12. The Dothraki call him that out of ignorance. They just assume all Westerosi are descendants of Andals. That's as simple as that.
  13. Hello and welcome. I'm guessing you are talking about creating a page that gathers all the pictures depicting a particular character, in you're case Beth Cassel. For example, this one for Arya Stark: https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Category:Images_of_Arya_Stark If so, you have to create a "Category page" in the wiki. Simply enter the phrase "Category: Images of Beth Cassel" in the search bar of the wiki and create the new page from there. Then you only have to edit the picture of Beth you've uploaded to enter that category to link the two pages with each other and you're done.
  14. @StarksInTheNorth The app states the following:
  15. Viserys I was plump at first and then he became so fat later in life that it caused him health issues (not so fat as Aegon IV though). They casted Paddy Considine to play him and he is neither plump nor fat. I agree chances are not in favor of seeing chubby Helaena on screens. I wonder if they will bother to make Aegon II and/or Rhaenyra fatter as the series progresses.
