  1. To be honest, I think 300 NZ $ (around 150€ for me) it's too much money for just online conferences and hangouts. I'm young, Spanish, and not a in a good financial situation right now. I got unemployed in February and after some work interviews when I was about to be sign for a new job the coronavirus crisis started. Spain is the country with most deaths/1000 habitants in the world and economical crisis will be fierce after the health crisis ends. But I want to support the kiwis, it should be pretty hard for them after all their hard work to see the physical conference cancelled due to an event such as coronavirus crisis. So I ask you, fellow BwB (my first Worldcon was last year, I got the awesome t-shirt of the Brotherhood ^^), do you plan to attend the con in the new digital format?
  2. Worldcon just announced the new online membership rates CoNZealand is pleased to announce a collaboration with The Fantasy Network to bring the 78th Worldcon to an interactive, virtual platform, say Chairs Norman Cates and Kelly Buehler. “From panels and streaming video to informal hangouts and late-night networking, the virtual convention aims to provide members with the most fun that they can have at a convention from their home,” say Buehler and Cates. In addition to collaborating on creating and hosting the virtual platform, after the convention The Fantasy Network will host selected video-on-demand streams from CoNZealand in their iOS, Android, and Roku applications in a new Worldcon channel. Updated membership rates have also been announced today, as participation in the virtual CoNZealand will require an Attending Membership. An Adult Attending Membership is now NZD$300. The updated membership rates are detailed below. “In addition to full access to the virtual con, attending members will be able to vote for the 2020 Hugo Awards and the 1945 Retro Hugo Awards, and for the 2022 Worldcon site selection. “Supporting Members will receive the standard package with a souvenir book and any other souvenir items they would have received as a Supporting Member, as well as voting rights for the Hugo Awards, Retro Hugo Awards, and 2022 Worldcon Site Selection. Adult Attending Membership $300
  3. Hi! I wanted to ask the ASOIAF community that will attend the Worldcon, and specially the legendary Brothehood without Banners to vote us, Podcast de hielo y fuego, for the Best Fancast Award. Who are we? We are the biggest Podcast in Spanish and most downloaded Podcast in the world (!) about A song of and fire and Game of thrones (6+ millions downloads in 4 years). As for our feats in 2018 in order to propose our nomination, we organized the Podcast de hielo y fuego 200, the biggest ASOIAF fan gathering in Europe! And with no companies involved, an event just made by fans and for fans. 300+ people went to Osuna (Sevilla, Spain), where GoT was filmed, and more than half of them were dressed in ASOIAF cosplays for the thematic dinner. The rains cancelled one of the activities, the medieval fight tourney, and modified the White Walker survival game, but it was amazing.Check https://lossietereinos.com/impresiones-fotos-del-historico-podcast-hielo-fuego-200/ (text in Spanish), you can find more info in the tag https://lossietereinos.com/tag/podcast-200/ The great Ran (and Linda, of course) greeted us at the end of the live pod We were also in 2018 behind the #BeNiceToGeorge campaign in Twitter https://twitter.com/search?q=%23benicetogeorge&src=tyah, an online Twitter campaign in order to support George for his work against the harass and attacks he suffers online every day calling him lazy, fat or other insults. It had an amazing success and I am positive it reached even George. I assume you already know how to vote ^^, so I will just show the tittles for the nomination Title: Podcast de hielo y fuego Website https://lossietereinos.com/podcast-de-hielo-y-fuego/https:// Thanks a lot! It would be absolutely amazing in you could move it to your local ASOIAF communities, specially European. It would be awesome than an European podcast gets nominated in a category such as Best Fancast in a Worldcon organized in Europe.
  4. Pretty solid 1/10 for the consumation of the destruction of Dorne and most of all the biggest character assassination ever
  5. 9.5 Amazing script, best focused in only North, Wall, Tyrion and Dany. Amazing performances by Boltons, Stannis, Sam, Sansa, Theon. Hats off
  6. We also want it for Android in Spain, too. Right now you can only get it here if you have an iPad. If you buy it for an Android tablet, should you have to pay again (assuming you already paid for the iPad version) for the unlocking books material? I guess so, but it would be great if you guys were able to avoid it.
  7. Rorge and Biter scene was absurd, Pod and Brienne interactions didn't feel right. I missed Marillion and Only Cat line. And Mel and Selyse wasn't really strong. A 7.
  8. Why change that line? They win nothing avoiding it!!!
  9. The episode is almost perfect (Yara's plot was dumb). I voted a 10 when in my heart is a 9 in order to compensate the usual hate.
  10. 9/10 Awesome writing, awesome photography. Differences with the books? Yeah, but this is HBO
  11. Awesome as an TV transition episode, mediocre adaptation. Overall, an 8.
  12. Set-up episode. I was expecting Coldhands and Lady Stoneheart. The chapter is good (I loved the Dragonstone dynamic) but I was expecting something more intense. 8.5/10
  13. I think you have to be a real and almost sick fanatic to not reckoning the awesomeness in this episode. People have 3 problems: 1) They are too fans of the book. Obsession is a bad thing 2) They absolutely don't understand that TV is a media FAR DIFFERENT than the books. They imagine every singles scene in their heads they have read and are disappointed when it it's exactly the same, wich leads to... 3) Zero tolerance. I have also read all the books more than once, and even if I nitpick and have a grumpy face with some changes, I accept it and don't complain like a little girl. For me the RW was as perfect as it could be on TV. I even liked more Cat's catarsis than the face-shredding that for me was absolutely unrealistic.
  14. Even without Coldhands I loved the dynamics in King's Landing, Dragonstone and Sam-Gilly. An 8 because nothing amazing happened (and I was really expecting Coldhands) At least we got leeches.
