VoK 254: The World of Ice and Fire – The Bones and Beyond


Asshai

In their third and final foray into the lands beyond the Sunset Kingdom, the Vassals scale the daunting Bone Mountains to explore the fabled kingdoms of Eastern Essos.

Join Duncan (Valkyrist), Greg (claudiusthefool), Augustine (linecom1), Michael (Khal Wadege), and lurker extraordinaire Amber (Amberrocks) as they ponder zorse morphology, colour-coded emperors, spiteful gods, necromancy diets, and how to get those stubborn grease stains out of your black stone monolith.

With the help of Maester Yandel, they also speculate (wildly) on the future events of the novels, and the various real-world historical allusions scattered throughout the compendium.

VoK 191: Looking (HBO series) – Season 2


“Who’s the weird guy crying?” Us, Aunt Sarah. Turns out it’s us. The Vassals gather ’round this week to pay their respects to HBO’s dearly departed Looking. Greg (claudiusthefool), Amanda (middlecyclone), Michael (Khal Wadege), and Katie (Lady Griffin) bid farewell to the boys who made all the mistakes and throw major shade at Slate.com, because, you know, aren’t we all Patrick at the end of the day?

Here is the Slate article we discuss.

VoK 186: The World of Ice and Fire – Sothoryos & Central Essos


NaathiAndButterfly

In their second in-depth foray into the lands beyond the Sunset Kingdom, the Vassals set sail to Sothoryos and its surrounding isles, before heading north to the vast Grasslands of Essos, and then norther still to the Shivering Sea.

Join Duncan (Valkyrist), Greg (claudiusthefool), Patrick (Ser Patrick the Tall), Dan (witless chum), Augustine (linecom1), Michael (Khal Wadege) and newcomer Justin (uflGator1) as they ponder ramming techniques (naval and otherwise); butterfly napalm; early Australian settlement; the Dinopocalypse of the south; the Dothraki’s aggressive rural redevelopment program; frosty prophesies; Ibbenese wrestling moves; and the “phantom menace” that haunts Mossovy forest.

With the help of Maester Yandel, they also speculate (wildly) on the future events of the novels, and the various real-world historical allusions scattered throughout the compendium.

VoK 175: The World of Ice and Fire – The Free Cities


Titan of Bravos

Merry Christmas from across the Narrow Sea! In their first in-depth foray into The World of Ice and Fire, the Vassals set sail to the Nine Free Cities of Essos.

Join Duncan (Valkyrist), Thomas (FTWard), Patrick (Ser Patrick the Tall), Dan (witless chum), Augustine (linecom1), and Michael (Khal Wadege) as they ponder maze-loving minotaurs; the badassery of war-bears; the shocking secret behind Oathkeeper; Essosi potato-farming; the pH levels of the Disputed Lands; Patchface’s failed betrothal; and the fabulousness of the Uncloaking Festival. With the help of Maester Yandel, they also speculate (wildly) on the future events of the novels, and the various real-world historical allusions scattered throughout the compendium.

VoK 116: The Rogue Prince (by George R. R. Martin) – “The Greens” Edition


Rogue Graphic 1

Join the Vassals of Kingsgrave (GreenCast Edition) as they review and discuss “The Rogue Prince” by George R.R. Martin. Hosts Ser Patrick the Tall, claudiusthefool, FTWard, Inkasrain & Khal Wadege analyze Grand Maester Gyldayne’s history of the life of Daemon Targaryen and his various swashbuckling adventures.

Come for the erudite and highfalutin discussion and stay for the silly aftershow that touches such wide-ranging subjects as the validity of the sources quoted in this story, Jews in Denmark, Valyrian swords in tourneys, the Valyrian speech of the Targaryen court, and blaming it all on Viserys I (and much more).
