VoK 175: The World of Ice and Fire – The Free Cities


Titan of Bravos

Merry Christmas from across the Narrow Sea! In their first in-depth foray into The World of Ice and Fire, the Vassals set sail to the Nine Free Cities of Essos.

Join Duncan (Valkyrist), Thomas (FTWard), Patrick (Ser Patrick the Tall), Dan (witless chum), Augustine (linecom1), and Michael (Khal Wadege) as they ponder maze-loving minotaurs; the badassery of war-bears; the shocking secret behind Oathkeeper; Essosi potato-farming; the pH levels of the Disputed Lands; Patchface’s failed betrothal; and the fabulousness of the Uncloaking Festival. With the help of Maester Yandel, they also speculate (wildly) on the future events of the novels, and the various real-world historical allusions scattered throughout the compendium.

Warning: Contains spoilers for all published books in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire
