    The Reeds are the Crannogmen(swamp people) kids that were the children of an old friend of Ned Stark, who may or may not know the circumstances of Lyanna's death. They are the ones who teach Brann about his green dreams and his wargness.

    Glad they are implementing the Reeds which means there is a real chance that Osha and Rickon will split off as they do in the book which will avoid later conflicts. Anyone else really hope that Maggie Smith plays the Queen of Thorns? She is just super on Downton Abbey. She is such an obvious choice though. As long as they can get someone who is a real sharp witted bitch it will be great.

    Well with Blizzard being a complete bellend with Diablo 3 (again)I'm about to try out that Game of Thrones mod for CK2, assuming I can catch on to Ck2 pretty quick as it seems like a real complex and amazing game. Anything where the FAQ on their site ends in:
    Hodor?
    Hodor.
    Has to be amazing right?

    Okay this game might be the single most complex video game I have ever, ever, ever seen. Way too much work to figure out in one day. The Game of Thrones mod for it is beyond amazing though. Essentially it gives you all of Westeros to play with during the War against Aerys the Mad. You can play literally any major house and even as lesser lords in those houses and it is ridiculously accurate. My first game I started as playing House Martell of Dorne. Like every single name and area is right form the books and wikis. You can ship Arianne off to be educated by an ally if you want. The game is like Civ 5 but Civ 5 if it also forced you to take college calculus. Crazy complex, but crazy amazing. Now I just need to find a convertor to make the GoT soundtrack into the same file as the game so it plays nothing but that music instead of the games.

    I cannot express in human words how much this would rock I always kinda pictured Maggie Smith when I read the books, then when I watched Downton it was a bit 'Hey... what's the queen of thorns doing in old england?'

    I'm glad they're casting the Reeds, they COULD do without them, but they COULD rename the show 'Westerosi shore' doesn't mean the SHOULD

    Beric and Thoros: awesome, this gives me great hope for a storyline I thought they might cut/trim down for next season, also one of the best duels in Westeros history is now looking to be on the cards

    Tormund: best. wildling. EVER.

    Overall season 3 is looking to be as good as season 2 just a shame we'll need to wait like 6 months for it to start

    So the GoT mod on Crusader Kings 2 is released? I had the Crusader Kings Westeros Mod but Crusader Kings hates all of my PCs and kept crashing. (Plus, that mod only came with two settings: Pre-Rebellion Westeros and Post Storm of Swords, I wanted beginning of Clash of Kings and/or beginning of Storm of Swords).

    I also had the Westeros Mod for Medieval, and while that was okay, kinda, didn't work well with the universe.

    Wouldn't worry; Vargo is in too: http://winteriscoming.net/2012/05/ca...s-in-progress/

    I don't think they're going for the lisp though.

    aah but the problem as I see it, is if they make the list even 1/2 as severe as it is in the books, the run the risk of making him too comical a character.

    I mean come one.... Kingthlayer!!.... it's.. it's just a bit funny ;p

    but now we have the Reeds, the Bastard of Bolton, the Brotherhood without Banners and the Brave Companions.. Season 3 is going to be awesome

    Not going to lie, when I hear a lisp I have to think of the Igors in the Discworld novels.

    But yeah, it's probably to avoid people taking the piss out of Vargo's... impediment a little too much. I hope they keep it in though.

    See I never saw him as comical... mostly because he's a sadistic fuck, I thought the lisp was kinda jarring with that, but knowing Martin, I can see that being on purpose. TBH I'm happy either way, if they leave it in, that's cool, it's a unique thing for his character, if they take it out, myeh, it was kinda annoying anyway

    also true story every SINGLE time I try to close the spoiler tag, I WILL spazz out and write [s/poiler] by accident the first time... wtf is wrong with me?

    I found reading the wiki articles after each episode helped immensely in clearing a few things up
