Guest Appearance on Boars, Gore, and Swords

Hey folks! After a Twitter conversation last night, Red Scott of Boars, Gore, and Swords and I decided to do an impromptu podcast talking about historical timelines of both real-world medieval Europe and Game of Thrones.

If you’d like to listen, it’s available on their Patreon feed here. Check it out!

(As a Patron of Boars, Gore, and Swords myself, I would definitely say it’s worth a couple bucks a month to get their advance and bonus content. However, if you don’t have the scratch at the moment, a lot of what we talk about is covered in my History Remixed essay and my Laboratory of Politics series.)

RFTIT Tumblr Weekly Roundup!


Hey folks! So work on the Reach essay of the Politics of the Seven Kingdom series has begun, but I can already tell from the outline that this may be as long if not longer than the Westerlands essay and will definitely need to be broken up into several parts.

So in the mean-time, what do we have on the Tumblrs?

Hello, folks! So Tyrion II’s quotes are put in, and I’ve now assembled all the quotes for the Politics of the Reach. Whether I’ll have a finished essay for Monday, we’ll see…depends on how productive I feel on Thursday through Sunday.

But in the mean time, let’s see what we have on the Tumblr:

Guest Appearance on History of Westeros Podcast: The Golden Company

As you know, I’ve been doing a collaborative series of podcasts on the Blackfyres with the History of Westeros Podcast: in previous episodes, we’ve covered Aegon IV, Daeron II, Daemon Blackfyre, the First Blackfyre Rebellion, and Bittersteel. In this episode, we take a look at Aegon “Bittersteel” Rivers and the Golden Company he founded:

Hey folks! So Jaime II is done, Tyrion II and History of the Reach are up next but are basically only at the outline stage.

In the meantime, I’m going through some medical stuff that may well slow down writing speed; I’ll have to wait to see how it affects me to find out how much. That being said, I’m not going anywhere, it’s just going to be a bit slower than normal.

That aside, there’s quite a bit of good stuff on the Tumblrs, so let’s check it out:


Politics of the Seven Kingdoms, Part VI (The Westerlands)


Hey folks! If you’d like to read my essay on the politics of the Westerlands collected together in one place, it’s now up on Tower of the Hand here.

Check it out!

Well, with the big Westerlands essay done, the next writing project is Jaime II of ASOS. That’s going to be a while coming, so in the mean-time, let’s see what we have on the Tumblrs:

RTFTIT Tumblr Weekly Roundup!


Hello folks! Unfortunately, due to a health setback, writing on Westerlands Part III (currently up to 7590 words) and Jaime II stalled out. But now that I’m feeling up to doing a bit of writing, that should be solved in good order. In the mean time, I’ve got some excellent Tumblr stuff to tide you over:

And as always, Race for the Iron Throne Volume II is up on Amazon. Please buy it and/or review it!
