Zalanthas as Game of Thrones?
« on: August 24, 2017, 11:21:10 AM »
I'm sure someone has made the connection before, but I was just thinking:

Luir's Outpost is like the Wall (maybe sort of in reverse) with them constantly battling back the Gith to the point where its ALMOST a sole occupation.

Morin's and other northern areas are North of the Wall. The topography is different, animals are bigger, but the people there are few and far between, and VERY tribalistic.

To the South, you have Kings All-landing. The center of politics, drama, and the biggest power in the land.

Is it just me? Is anyone else waiting for Tek's Son/Daughter/Granddaughter/whatever to come sailing across the Silt Sea to the East to reclaim her throne?

Allister Thorne is every long-lived unsponsored combat role who has to put up with snowflakes, characters knowing too much for their age, overly smart giants, spec-apps getting parachuted in to command him and unfair resurrections of people he's already PK'ed.

This is incredibly apt.

Meaning they do all their best work when you're not being the wheel?

Also, a recent sponsored role of yours... as Pod... it really does make sense now. I see it.

Samwell Tarley is the one PC who keeps trying to get into House Negean, despite the House not being open for play, and then staff finally just shutdown the city to him. If they wanted Sam to have that knowledge, they would have given it to him.

The story would have ended before the books even began. Robert Baratheon would have killed the Lannisters over minor quibbles and then he'd stop logging on as he got bored of mudsex and party rpt's.

And then reroll as a Bynner while badgering Ned Stark's player to store his "boring" character and come play sellswords with him.

Game of Thrones Season 7 definitely accurately tracks travel times in Zalanthas.

I exclusively play the Titan's Bastard. I talk a good amount of shit, have vast potential, and shortly end up as a severed head.
