ASOIAF Madness - Fill out your warriors bracket

Recommended Posts

With the NCAA basketball tournament upon us, I thought of a fun "fill out your bracket" game, but with warrior characters from ASOIAF. I took the liberty to pick the names (64 in total) and rank them 1-16, just as the NCAA does it.

In terms of whom I chose as characters, I chose characters who appear only in the span of the novels, and as for fighting ability, I considered them as they were at their best DURING the span of the novels (that's why Robert B. is not on the list)

Sorry if you don't agree with all, but the NCAA doesn't always get it right either. And you'll have the opportunity to disagree with me by simply filling out the bracket.

Ser Jaime Lannister; Ser Barristan Selmy; Oberyn Martell; Syrio Forel

Mance Rayder; Khal Drogo; Ser Gregor Clegane; Sandor Clegane

Qhorin Halfhand; Areo Hotah; Ser Garlan Tyrell; Ser Bronn of the Blackwater

Ser Jorah Mormont; Andrik the Unsmiling; Brienne of Tarth; Ser Lyn Corbray

Strong Belwas; Ser Loras Tyrell; Beric Dondarrion; Bronze Yohn Royce

Jason Mallister; Shagga son of Dolf; Victarion Greyjoy; Ser Archibald Yronwood

Jon Snow; Greatjon Umber; Ser Harras Harlaw; Timmett son of Timmett

Thoros of Myr; Ser Mandon Moore; Jon Connington; Ser Lyle Crakehall

Qarl the Maid; Ser Rolland Storm; Ser Daemon Sand; Ser Balon Swann

10 Daario Naharis; Ser Lothor Brune; Caggo Corpsekiller; Ser Addam Marbrand

11 Iron Emmett; Ser Ilyn Payne; Ser Robar Royce; Ser Hosteen Frey

12 Yoren; Morgan Liddle; Eddard Stark; Tumco Lho

13 Jory Cassel; Ser Arys Oakheart; The Spotted Cat; Ser Gerold Dayne

14 Asha Greyjoy; Red Ronnet Connington; Ser Godry Farring; Obara Sand

15 Rakharo; Randyll Tarly; Dagmer Cleftjaw; Ser Brynden Tully

16 Ser Rodrik Cassel; Tytos Blackwood; Ser Rolly Duckfield; Tormund Giantsbane

I randomly paired the characters for the initial round to create the bracket. There are 4 segments, which are in spoilers to save some space. In each segment, the bracket goes like this: 

1 v 16 winner faces 8 v. 9 winner; 5 v. 12 winner faces 4 v. 13 winner; winner of each go against each other.

6 v. 11 winner faces 3 v. 14 winner; 7 v. 10 winner faces 2 v. 15 winner; winner of each go against each other

Remainder two character go against each other to win the segment.

The winner of segment 1 fights against the winner of segment 3, and 2 and 4 go together, then the championship bout.
