  1. Zdravei i dobre do6ul. ;) Za jalost nqma kak da ti go napi6a na kirilica, za6toto foruma ne q poddurja. :) Oh, I think there should be about 10 of us by now. A couple of years ago I went through a Bilingual readers thread and I found a bunch of Bulgarians. I don't know how many of us are active though.
  2. I can't really tell, but I don't see why that would be the case. I don't remember him being mentioned in this week's episode and I see almost no Renly-related threads in ASOIAF General.
  3. The problem appeared both in Firefox and in Chrome, but I just tried the page again and it works now.
  4. I haven't been able to access Renly's page in a couple of days. Is that a malfunction in the wiki or is the problem on my end?
  5. I have no idea if someone mentioned this, so here I go. One of the more important characters in Robin Hobb's "Tawny Man" trilogy is called Nettle and at some point she dream-rides a real dragon. According to the review of "The Princess and the Queen", GRRM's latest story which will be published in december, one of the dragonriders during the Dance was called Nettles. :)
  6. I guess I'm not the first to notice that, but nobody has mentioned it, so here I go. There are a lot of similarities between Jon Snow and the main protagonist in Robin Hobb's "Farseer" and "Tawny Man" trilogies, Fitzchivalry Farseer: 1. They are both bastards of powerful men (if RLJ is true, they are actually both the bastards of the heirs to the Crown - Chivalry and Rhaegar). 2. They are both raised by their families, but never fully accepted as part of them. 3. They both rise to a position of some power and seemingly die when they try to grasp more of it (and in both cases, that happens at the end of a novel). 4. They both have a bond with a wolf (even though Fitz's bond with Nighteyes is much deeper that Jon's with Ghost). 5. They both have some sort of warging ability. "Assassin's Apprentice", the first book of the "Farseer trilogy", came out a year before "A Game of Thrones".
  7. I'm guessing soberness has been in low supply for the last few days... :drunk: Cheers, Lord_Tyrion and welcome to all the others! :cheers: ETA: Oh, and a very happy new year! :)
  8. Hello, my lords and ladies! I haven't really introduced myself formally yet, so I thought I'd do it as one of my last internet acts of this year. :) My name is Venko, I'm from Bulgaria and I picked up ASoIaF after watching the two HBO seasons this summer. While watching I kept google-ing things that I didn't get or that I found interesting and on more than one occasion the top search results included this board. So, after a couple of days of reading, I registered and jumped right in. I'm a Tolkien fan, who's read Rowling and Suzanne Collins and enjoyed Robin Hobb's Elderlings books quite a lot. I also like Matthew Reilly and, of course, everything about Westeros and the rest of GRRM's amazing world! Enough about me! I wish you all a very nice day!
