Eleven salty vassals wade onto the shores of Pyke to claim their crowns, and perform “The Drowned Man” from George R. R. Martin’s A Feast for Crows.

VoK 130: Full Cast(le) Recording #6 – High Noon at the Tower of Joy


TowerOfJoy

In the latest Full Cast(le) Recording, the Vassals get inside Ned Stark’s head and flashback to the Tower of Joy during Robert’s Rebellion.

VoK 129: Book Club (Vol.1) – The Ocean at the End of the Lane (by Neil Gaiman)


TheOceanAtTheEndOfTheLaneThe Vassals of Kingsgrave kick off the VOK Book Club with their discussion of The Ocean at the End of the Lane, by Neil Gaiman.

Join hosts Greg (claudiusthefool), Leigh (LordManderBlee ), Brett (White Raven), Zach (Alias), Amber (amberrocks), and Matt (Eiffel) as they analyze the short but powerful novel, touching on what it really means to be a helpless child in a world of adult cruelty; the responsibility of Gods (old or new) to their creations; the power of memory; and how easily we can forget the most formative events of our childhood.

Please be sure to vote on the forums for our next Book Club pick!

VoK 75: The Hedge Knight (by George R. R. Martin)


hedgeknight1

The Vassals raise their pavilions at Ashford Meadow to discuss The Hedge Knight, the first story in George R. R. Martin’s Tales of Dunk and Egg series of novellas. Topics include the role of smallfolk in Westeros and the main story, knights and knighthood, how coinage and the economy of Westeros functions, the age old question of who has a right and claim to rule, and why fahrenheit is better than celsius. Zach (Alias), Bina (Bina007), Vikram (FortyTwo), Amanda (MiddleCyclone), Michael (Mordion), Leigh (LordManderblee) and Nadia (Nadia) also consider various theories that the story has spawned and how they relate to the A Song of Ice and Fire world at large.
