Panel Discussion on Regional Westerosi Military Traditions

For a while now, I’ve been part of a virtual panel along with JSLAL, History of Westeros, and Lady Gwyn from Radio Westeros, where we swapped ideas about the military traditions of the Seven Kingdoms.

Rather than keeping our thoughts to ourselves, we got together last week and recorded a podcast about it.

RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Hey folks! Here we are, the last Tumblr Roundup before the final season of Game of Thrones…which I will be covering, albeit in a somewhat abbreviated fashion, focusing more on what I think will or won’t happen in the books than detailed recaps, although I’ll register my opinion about any truly egregious plotting/characterization.

But in the mean-time, we’ve got Tumblrs:

RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Hello, everyone! Apologies for not posting sooner; I’ve been in a bit of a Sisyphean cycle recently where I spend the entire week doing the lecture for the coming week and then restarting again, so haven’t had the most time for writing. In the mean time, I do have some Tumblr goodness for you:

RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Hey folks! I’m hip-deep in preparing for a brand-new course, so it’ll take a while for me to get through the next (incredibly long) Fire & Blood chapter. After I’m done with the reign of Jaehaerys I, I think I’m going to take a bit of a break from Fire & Blood, finish off (my version of) the Hour of the Wolf, and get back into doing some ASOS chapter essays.

In the mean-time, we’ve got Tumblrs.

Book Announcement!

Hey, folks! Just wanted to let you know that the last of the Kickstarter books, Kings, Hands, and City-States, is now available in paperback.

People who ordered a copy during the Kickstarter will be getting theirs mailed out soon, but if you didn’t have a chance to back then, you can now order your own copy!

And as always, if you enjoy the book, please do leave a review.

Check it out!

RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Grading is done, the holidays are almost done, so I finally have some time to catch up on my Tumblring. It’s a bit of a light mailbag b/c of the aforesaid grading and holidaying, but there’s some good stuff here:

This week, I have a special treat for you: BryndenBFish and PoorQuentyn were kind enough to invite me onto their podcast to discuss one of my favorite chapters in A Game of Thrones, Eddard XI. Join us as we discuss medieval power politics, the posthumous reputations of Ned Stark and Tywin Lannister, and many other topics.

You can listen above or wherever you download your podcasts.
