VoK 190: The World of Ice and Fire – The North and The Wall & Beyond


The Vassals of Kingsgrave continue their ongoing discussion series covering George R.R. Martin’s “The World of Ice and Fire”.  We discuss “The North” & “The Wall and Beyond” (pages 134 to 149 in the book).

Join hosts Greg (claudiusthefool), Alex (Lucky Charms), Dan (witless chum), Matt (Varley), Michal (inkasrain), Patrick (Ser Patrick the Tall) & Peter (Shellfish) as they dare to put into words the awesomeness of the Manderlys, the super-civilized Skagosi, Bear Island Wrestlemania, the pros and cons of punching narwhals in the face as well as unicorns.  Did we mention the unicorns?  Also unicorns.

Warning: Contains spoilers for all published and unpublished books in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, as well as all aired episodes of HBO’s Game of Thrones.
