With HBO frantically working on several Game of Thrones spinoffs to pick up the slack when the series ends, Patrick McCarthy has offered a suggestion in the form of a 20-minute animated pilot based on The Doom of Valyria. The show would dive into the history of the Valyrian Freehold, and answer the lingering questions that surround the empire’s destruction.

This story is probably longshot in terms of getting picked up by HBO for a series, but we have to admire McCarthy’s dedication here. The video you are about to see took him two years to create. [click to continue…]

While HBO sorts out the many, many Game of Thrones prequels they have in the works, Wild Wolf Films has already released a prequel of their own—and it’s not just a bunch of fans fooling about. This is an extremely well-crafted short film. [click to continue…]

Pyke, the Greyjoy castle on the Iron Islands of Westeros, is definitely on the dreary side, but LEGO artist Anu Pehrson‘s take on Pyke is remarkably beautiful. The creation even won an award at BrickCon earlier this month.

Needless to say, if I had to choose between visiting GRRM’s or Anu’s version of Pyke, I definitely go with the latter. Check out an additional pic below. [click to continue…]

Take a little time out of your day to enjoy these gorgeous portraits by Russian artist Aleksei Vinogradov.

He does some amazing portrait work, but I admit to being most delighted by his series featuring fictional characters and their imaginary pets. The Ron Perlman is my personal favorite, but the Mystique knocked me on my butt. Check them out below. [click to continue…]

Fans of George R.R. Martin’s A Song Of Ice And Fire books are familiar with the game of Cyvasse, but there’s never been an official description of how the game looks. That hasn’t stopped people from imagining and creating their own versions, but this one by Bristol Design Forge may be the closest we’ve gotten to the game based the rules gleaned from the novels.

Each piece has been hand-drawn and laser engraved while the board and pieces have been hand-finished and waxed for protection. It features an 8×8 board complete with screen, 66 land tiles, 46 player pieces, and two different sets of rules for each style of gameplay.

It’s also beautiful.

You can pick one on Etsy if you’d like to play, or just have it around to look cool. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
