VoK 254: The World of Ice and Fire – The Bones and Beyond


Asshai

In their third and final foray into the lands beyond the Sunset Kingdom, the Vassals scale the daunting Bone Mountains to explore the fabled kingdoms of Eastern Essos.

Join Duncan (Valkyrist), Greg (claudiusthefool), Augustine (linecom1), Michael (Khal Wadege), and lurker extraordinaire Amber (Amberrocks) as they ponder zorse morphology, colour-coded emperors, spiteful gods, necromancy diets, and how to get those stubborn grease stains out of your black stone monolith.

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.

VoK 195: The Walking Dead – Season 5 (AMC series)


VOK 195

The Vassals of Kingsgrave gather in the safety (relative) of Alexandria to review and discuss the 5th season of AMC’s The Walking Dead.  Join Greg (claudiusthefool), Amanda (Middlecyclone), Augustine (linecom1) & Steven (SJLee) as we discuss how comfortable we are with a possible Ricktatorship, are the Alexandrians dumb or just ignorant of the reality in which they live, how awesome Carl is (just kidding, he’s still awful) and generally meander our way from topic to topic much as the survivors do on the show but still end up where we are meant to be in the end.

***Warning: This podcast contains spoilers for the first five seasons of AMC’s The Walking Dead as well as references and spoilers for The Walking Dead Comic by Robert Kirkman (up to the point where the show has reached in the comics.  There will be no spoilers for the comics beyond that point.)***

NaathiAndButterfly

In their second in-depth foray into the lands beyond the Sunset Kingdom, the Vassals set sail to Sothoryos and its surrounding isles, before heading north to the vast Grasslands of Essos, and then norther still to the Shivering Sea.

Join Duncan (Valkyrist), Greg (claudiusthefool), Patrick (Ser Patrick the Tall), Dan (witless chum), Augustine (linecom1), Michael (Khal Wadege) and newcomer Justin (uflGator1) as they ponder ramming techniques (naval and otherwise); butterfly napalm; early Australian settlement; the Dinopocalypse of the south; the Dothraki’s aggressive rural redevelopment program; frosty prophesies; Ibbenese wrestling moves; and the “phantom menace” that haunts Mossovy forest.

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.

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.
