    If you want to go by what the official Game of Thrones RPG says, Varys is NOT a shadowbinder. He is not a magic user of any kind.

    The RPG only includes stuff from the very first book. It is not the be all end all of the series. GRRM has specifically said he will not be tied down to anything that is published for it. I've got it too. Awesome book even if you're not interested in using it to play. Great artwork.

    Oh I agree. It is a fantastic book. I am using it for play, too. The system works a lot better than D&D.

    But I know what you mean. Still, I don't think Varys is a magic user of any kind.

    I use the d20 rules. But it works differently than D&D. The armor rules are different. The idea that you can defend yourself or not is also different from D&D. The Game of Thrones rules is more realistic, if you ask me.

    That's not an update on ADWD progress. It's just a new excerpt chapter.

    No, I'm not. I'm not gonna be satisfied until ADWD is out in the bookstore. Said satisfaction will last for the few hours it takes to read it then I'm going back to waiting for the next book.

    Besides, I'd rather have an update on ADWD progress and/or hints on who the hell the new PoV char is.

    I thought I already told you that I've messily lost the remnants of my sanity to that Chugworth comic of the Almadirro....

    Besides, if I really wanted to, I could just go to the ADWD section in the ASoIaF forum and look through the chapter summaries. *shrug*

    *sigh* well in that case, why shouldnt grrm just produce a dossier of chapter summaries for the new book, which im sure he already has with a convienient list of things like new PoV characters etc........for mad people like you.


    Its about the books and the story, and when it concerns updates a whole chapter of one of the major characters if by far something huge, and anyone who would prefer him to say who a new pov character is or such is stupid. He has to keep some surprises back you know.

    This isn't really speculation so much as it is a quirky little tidbit:

    When Jaime leaves Harrenhal missing a certain appendage, he takes with him a shield painted with the Lothston arms on it (black bat). It never says where she acquired (that I can remember) it but when Brienne opens in AFFC she has a shield with the black bat of Lothston. Think it was Jaime's?

    Oswell Whent, yeah.

    A whole chapter of Tyrion? Again, GRRM read the chapter at a con before (this was before AFFC and ADWD were split in two) and the people at the ASoIaF forum provided a summary of it. Plus another Tyrion chapter, two Jon chapters, four Dany chapters (although one's the preview in AFFC) and a Davos chapter.
