Hey, folks! It’s that time of the week, so it’s time for some news and a Tumblr roundup.
First, the news: as part of the lead-up to the Battle of Blackwater Week, there’s going to be a schedule change. Rather than going next into Tyrion XI-XIV, Sansa IV-VII, and Davos III, which cover the battle, I’m going to do the non-battle chapters first. So coming up on Monday, I’ll be releasing Theon IV instead.
Second, the Kickstarter is heading into its final days. We’ve crossed the $8,000 mark, so the Politics of the Seven Kingdoms essay series has unlocked! I’ll be making an announcement soon about what we’re going to be doing in the case that we don’t hit $15,000 so that everyone gets the rewards they paid for and everyone gets the bonus essays that got unlocked, which I will make sure happens.
Next, let’s look at some Tumblr posts:
- Did Aegon fight Volantis as a quid-pro-quo?
- What should Dany have done differently in Slaver’s Bay?
- How does the economy of Slaver’s Bay work?
- Debating the “stone beast” from Dany IV.
- Peasant levies and unarmed peasants.
- Was the first Great Council a scam? No.
- On the Defiance of Duskendale. Part II. Part III.
- How did the Blackfyres get Blackfyre back?
- Riverlord status under the Ironborn.
- How to keep the North and the Riverlands together?
- Guerrilla fighting outside of Dorne.
- Westerosi finance questions.
