that scenario also makes tyrion more of a sympathetic figure in viewers eyes, instead of murdering shae, he's avenging her. makes him more of a hero.

Also, I hope Tyrion kills Shae in the show. Perhaps a blunt object to the head or they were in two separate rooms, maybe he kills both with an arrow but in their respective rooms..

Plus...no chain on the show so how would he strangle her? I dont see him just...overpowering her. It wouldnt look realistic. Shae would beat his ass.

Perhaps shoot both with the same shot? One in front of the other? Hes not gonna....reload.

But he has to kill her or maybe they have Tywin do it. She would go with him overseas if she lived.

Maybe have someone do it after the trial? They have too good a relationship on the show for her to just turn on him like that.

I know a lot of people complain about the showing straying from source material, but its done a good job sticking to the main events of the book. Like we know Loras Tyrell will become a Kingsguard but they're taking a different path to come to the same conclusion(a desperate attempt by Cersei?) I know that they'll have Tyrion kill Shae and they're just setting her up as noble for a even bigger betrayal when he's truly lost everything. It's a huge turning point for his character and I don't think they can completely leave it out. I can see her coverage in jewels from Tywin and maybe Tyrion pulls a knife on her but chooses to strangle her instead. Half the audience will be shocked and the other half will be like that bitch got what she deserved after selling him out during the trial.

Im not sure how far in the Faceless Men are in the magic camp. My belief is that Jaqen was hired to break in to the citadel and find the method to kill dragons.

So this is basically the most awesome thing ever.

A mod was created for the game Crusader Kings 2. CK2 is basically a stratagey game where you control a leader of a faction and control your kingdom/whatever to reach a goal. Such as gaining a throne. You do this by forging alliances through marriages and going to war or what ever way you see fit.

At the same time your houses can make plots against you.

So the mod made was for A Song of Ice and Fire. Just from watching the video this seems extremely fun.

I've watched a few of these before, seems really cool but CK2 is too detailed for my liking even with the ASoIaF mod.

Whose the hottest girl?

I'm still in the beginning of ADWDs, but the way their talking about Val make it seem like she the fairest of them all.

Cercei? Dany? Lyanna? Arianne?

I'm thinking:

Dornish Women
Val
Dany
Lyanna
Cercei

You can throw Margery Tyrell in the mix. But I am looking forward to seeing how they cast Arianne.

It's funny that there is no single ugly chick (except for Brienne) among the main characters. All are hot, have been hot in their prime, or they are growing into being hot. Even the not heavenly so pretty characters like Ygritte or Asha are hot.

I think he's referring to how the characters are portrayed in the books since this is the book thread

Pretty sure I read somewhere that Arya had similar features to Lyanna Stark but isn't pretty, but the book sort of eludes that Arya has fully bloomed yet.

Older Arya

Well, I am talking about books. There she is described as looking like Lyanna who was hot enough to become the initiation of the war.
