    GAME OF THRONES #9:Blackwater ACT 19 Chapter 2-2012

    It is, essentially. In the book, it happens much earlier (after Tyrion speaks to Shae about joining the castle staff). It's a wonderful piece of Vary's background, and like a lot of other pieces of conversation, I can see that making it into a scene in the next season.

    Games of Thrones #19 - Blackwater preview looks good, really good

    An interesting interview with D&D regarding Blackwater episode: 'Game of Thrones': Behind next week's Battle of the Blackwater | Inside TV | Will the chain be a last minute addition, or will it be left off entirely?

    Not to mention the scorched earth order he gives to the Mountain in order to root out the Brotherhood.

    GAME OF THRONES #7:A Man Without Honor ACT 17 Chapter 2-2012

    I started to think a lot about this after last night's episode, and the strange thought that crossed my mind was: Not saying that's how I would want it played out. I certainly want to see the Goat!

    GAME OF THRONES #7:A Man Without Honor ACT 17 Chapter 2-2012

    Blackwater is the title for episode 9, so I believe they'll probably follow the format of last year where the ninth episode will wrap up a lot of the storylines and episode 10 ("Valar Morghulis") will begin to setup for the third season.

    GAME OF THRONES #3:What Is Dead May Never Die ACT 13 Chapter 2-2012

    And yet, Mr. Dinklage went on to win not only a Golden Globe, but an Emmy for his performance. I think an actor's skill and range can more than compensate for any physical differences from the source material. At first I didn't like the casting choice for Robert either, but after watching the...

    GAME OF THRONES #3:What Is Dead May Never Die ACT 13 Chapter 2-2012

    Best episode of the season so far. I loved the scene with Tyrion exposing Cersei's informer on the small council. An excellent example of using the visual media to efficiently adapt what Martin wrote. I wish they would have shown Pycelle wetting himself though... And boy, they really nailed...

    What Are Your Unique Items?

    I ran a 3.5 campaign in FFG's Midnight setting a number of years back. Out of that campaign came one of my favorite magic items: The Darkwood Palm. One of the PC's in the campaign lost his arm to an umber hulk. He played the loss of the limb spectacularly, and so after a handful of sessions he...

    The WalkinG Dead 2.12 Better Angels (spoilers)

    If I were Rick, I think I would try to lead the horde away from the farm. It appeared that they were still quite a distance away and were focused on the gunshot from Rick/Shane's fight and then the shot that killed zombie Shane. Granted some might stay and feast on Shane's corpse, you could...

    D&D 4E What's the point of playing 4e now?

    I'm sure that our group will do the same as we did when 4e came out: finish up our current campaign (which we just started one in Dark Sun), then try out the next edition whenever it comes out.

    Dungeon Command: Heroes, Drow, and Goblins

    I can't see WOTC pulling something so egregious as to not put any new sculpts in the box. I definitely agree they will reuse a lot of older sculpts, but even the board games received a few new sculpts as well did the beholder and dragon sets. Maybe a 75/25 ratio?

    D&D 4E Reply if you love 4e

    Love it from both sides of the screen I had the privilege to run our group through a 3 year campaign with 4e (using the H1-E3 modules) and we have not looked back. I enjoyed running it, and never found myself burnt-out as I did after a year and a half of running a 3e game. Now, I'm lucky...

    Do grognards have to be jerks?

    This has always been my theory, and experience. I was at GenCon this year, and have been to many of them in the past. And, almost every GenCon I attend, there are inevitably a few instances of that complete lack of social graces. I had three separate instances this year, and unfortunately all of...

    GAME OF THRONES #10:Fire and Blood ACT 10 Chapter 1-2011--Season Ending

    Brienne of Tarth It appears they have confirmation that Gwendoline Christie is going to play Brienne in Season 2. Over at WiC, they also have reported a possible casting for Asha Greyjoy, with the interesting tidbit that they may have changed Asha to Yara.
