My Thoughts

My brother GC and I watched this interesting YouTube video this morning.

I had no idea that the world of Game Of Thrones was that large and could be that dangerous, I knew that it could be dangerous, but this video presents dangers at much higher levels than I was expecting.

I can not imagine trying to adventure in most of those places outside of Westeros and Essos.

There is so much more to the Game Of Thrones lore that could be explored in future television shows, miniseries, movies, et cetera.

I like videos like this, HBO / whoever should get people like this to make lore videos for them, they can be even more fascinating than the show at times.

The end,
