VOK 612: LOTR ReRead Reunion – Counterfactual History


Book Cover

Many of us are comfort-reading LOTR right now, so Bina007 decided to gather up the Vassals who hosted the LOTR re-read back in 2013 to discuss what would have happened if Faramir had attended the Council of Elrond rather than Boromir; if Sauron had never found the Ring; if Theoden hadn’t helped Gondor; what if Sauron won; and what if Saruman never went bad.

Thanks to Matt’s Air Con and Paul playing LOTR online this isn’t the cleanest of audio files but we thought The Listener would still like to hear OG Vassals Shellfish, Nadia and EastTexasDirewolf back on the airwaves.  Quotidian hosts include Matt/Varley, Bina, Brett/Whiteraven, Adam/Drownedsnow and Paul/SerDinnerRoll.

Spoilers for all things Tolkien duh.

VoK 600: The Dance of the Vassals VI aka The Great Linear ASOIAF ReRead (Part 106)


final

Welcome to the 600th episode of the Vassals of Kingsgrave! We begin with some chat from the VOK Curators  about the status of the fandom and what will come next for VOK in the absence of a new book. Your hosts are Casey/Blue-Eyed-Queen; Hashtag Greg/ClaudiusTheFool; Adam/Drownedsnow; Zack/Alias; Bina007, the Podcast Bard/Jed O’White Hart and a guest appearance from Nadia.

At 41m, we move to the penultimate episode of the reread but the final chapter episode!  We cover the final two linear timeline chapters of A Dance With Dragons – Dany 10 and Jon 13 – both taking place at an unspecified time in late July to – late August 300 AL.  To do so we reunite some of the hosts of the first two episodes of the reread – published back in August 2015 – Thomas/FTWard; Brett/Whiteraven; Michael/Mordion; Matt/Varley and Bina007.  And we also get two special songs from the Podcast Bard.

The podcast is dark and full of spoilers for all works in George R R Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series but for Game of Thrones, the TV show.

Picture credit – HBO’s Game of Thrones.

maxresdefault

Our journey into FeastDance goes further as we get three epic chapters – Cersei re-arms the Faith in Cersei 6 (4m35s); Jon learns of Ramsay’s marriage plans in Jon 6 (35m); and Tyrion gets kidnapped in Tyrion 6 (59m)! These events take place between April 10th and 15th 300 AL.

Your crew for these events are first time MC, QueenJames, OG Vassals FTWard/Thomas and Nadia, podcast newbie Abby/Darceymormont, and our beloved peanuts Khal Wadege/Michael, Jock/MunroJock2 and Zander/The Lord Baron.

The podcast is dark and full of spoilers for anything in George R R Martin’s ASOIAF series. Content from TWOW preview chapters will be clearly flagged and avoidable. We do not discuss or spoil the show.
