The Ravenry: Week of 1/18/16

Greetings, adventurers!

As you may or may not know, Wars and Politics of Ice and Fire has its own Tumblr page (as well as its own Twitter and Facebook pages).  Even more excitingly,  we here at the blog have partnered with ASOIAF University to answer questions about A Song of Ice and Fire.  We – that is, SomethingLikeaLawyer and I – take the text-based questions submitted to us, write up thoughtful, text-based answers, and publish these answers on the Tumblr.

So – we did 100 asks this week.

That’s pretty damn cool, if I do say so myself. Given the sheer number of asks this week, it was inevitable that we would cover a ton of different topics, so the Hand and I have been all over the place with answers. I wrote a mini-essay about why Aegon IV really was a very terrible king and explored why we’ll probably never find out who Young Griff really is (and why that’s a good thing for the story). The Hand, for his part, discussed the problems of uniting the Free Cities, Italy-style (using the term “go full Savoy”, which immediately won me over), the decline of the knight, and the distinctions between Renly Baratheon and Daemon Blackfyre.

So, without further ado, here’s The Ravenry for the week of January 18:

As always, we love to hear your text-based questions, so if you have a burning question about ASOIAF, click this link to send us a raven.

Be safe and make good choices,

The Queen Regent (NFriel)

    I have a question to anyone interested in answering it: are we going to see other dragons in the main series? Any chance we might be surprised and see the Others riding ice dragons? What about other fire dragons?
