Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is fast on track for its release in 2022. The production hit a little snag recently after a positive COVID-19 case was detected, but since then it has been back to normal. Fans are highly excited about the upcoming series but they do have concerns if it will be as good as the original series, especially after the controversial final season.

Game of Laughs page on Facebook asked Game of Thrones fans via a post if the upcoming prequel will be better than the original series. The responses varied from great excitement to genuine concerns about the show’s success, and also some quips about HBO’s ability to make a great show. We selected a few of the comments from the post, to give you an idea of what the fan community thinks about the prequel series.

Here’s what the fans have to say about House of The Dragon:

Enrique Vaca“It will be great in terms of story depth and also of fights between dragons. I’m certainly optimistic that this show will be more loyal to the book. Also, I’m definitely hoping that Balerion the Black Dread has the most majestic scenes ever.”

Marques Johnson“Currently reading the book Fire and Blood which this show is gonna be based on. So if it lives up to the book hype it’s gonna be a great show!”

Dianca Rock“It depends on how much GRRM is involved. They better pay him his worth and keep him on as a screenplay writer. That’s all I have to say.”

Nick Quillen“It’s hard to say GOT was amazing and GRRM has published a lot of Targaryen lore so I’m just excited to see what the new show brings.”

Bernd Ki“Sure, because it’s already written to the end so they can’t make a horrible fantasy-diarrhea ending like S8!”

Gerardo Larenas Gyaldhart Larenahtz“Considering the statements made by Olivia Cooke, where she says that this new show won’t depict “violence against women” (when violence against EVERYONE has always been part of this saga), they seem to be taking a PC route and it will hardly be on the same league as GoT.”

Hovo Asatryan“It has the potential, but will people’s hearts accept and love it as they did with GoT….. GoT was a phenomenon and it is hard to repeat such success….”

Matei Bobes“Probably since they aren’t restricted to follow the book’s storyline… I hope the new characters will be at least as good.”

Eileen Dailey Hicks on Wiki of Thrones Facebook page said –“Read the book 3 times. Very hard to comprehend. Have to use charts. The prequel will have LOTS of dragons like 10. There will be Targaryens flying into battle on their dragons battles where dragons battle each other. Not sure how HBO will handle all the incest as like 5 reigns have brother married to sister. Wondering how the average fan will handle the show without reading the book. HBO will have to simplify it. It’ll be great!”

The Iron Throne has become a pop culture icon and a symbol of power in the fictional world. It represents an absolute reign, that corrupted many who tried to claim it for themselves. However, there have been many depictions of the Iron Throne, as various artists imagine them in their own ways. Surprisingly, the Iron Throne we saw on HBO’s TV adaptation of Game of Thrones wasn’t George R. R. Martin’s favourite design. In fact, he sites Marc Simonetti’s illustration of the Iron Throne in The World of Ice and Fire as his favourite.

Martin brought this up way back in 2013 writing about the Iron Throne in the Live Journal. He does say the HBO Iron Throne is THE Iron Throne, and always will be. But he went on to talk about the most accurate depiction of the Iron Throne. He chose the Iron Throne as painted by the amazing Marc Simonetti for his 2013 Ice & Fire calendar. And we can see why he chose it.

This Iron Throne is massive. Ugly. Assymetric,” Martin wrote. “It’s a throne made by blacksmiths hammering together half-melted, broken, twisted swords, wrenched from the hands of dead men or yielded up by defeated foes… a symbol of conquest… it has the steps I describe, and the height. From on top, the king dominates the throne room. And there are thousands of swords in it, not just a few.”

What do you think of Martin’s favourite illustration of the Iron Throne? Which one do you think is the best? Talk to us in the comments below!

There’s hardly any doubt that some props from Game of Thrones have turned into pop culture icons. The one that stands out amongst them is the iconic Iron Throne. The Iron Throne fuels the desires of the characters, to one day become the ruler of the realm by claiming their chance to sit on the wicked throne. There is a reason why Daenerys’ last surviving dragon Drogon destroys it at the end of season 8. The long history of the Iron Throne in the Game of Thrones lore is very fascinating. However, the prop that we saw on HBO’s TV adaptation wasn’t the first attempt to bring the Iron Throne into existence. The first ever official Iron Throne was made way back in 1996.

George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones came out in 1996. The very first Iron Throne was modelled after the illustration on the cover by Bantam Publications. It is quite different from what we have seen on the TV adaptation. The publisher created this version of the Iron Throne months before the book had even come out as the centrepiece of their booth at the 1996 American Booksellers’ Association (ABA) show in Chicago. And Martin was the guest of honor.

The thing was really uncomfortable,” Martin commented back then. “That part they got just right.”

Game of Thrones slot machines have been in news recently, especially after Kit Harington’s reaction video going viral. However, not everyone can go to the Sin City to play the game. So Microgaming created an online version of the game for the fans to play. This real money slot features a high-level theme as well as an atmosphere. You will be able to face all the legendary characters from this series. So no one will be disappointed. With this Microgaming slot, you can get even more insight into the ideas and thoughts of George R.R. Martin. In this money slot, you can not only visit all 7 kingdoms but also take part in a bloody and cunning battle for the Iron Throne.

Thanks to this, over the six years of its existence, the free slot machine not only remained relevant but also was in even greater demand among gamers from all over the world. One of the main reasons for the popularity of free slot real money online is not only high-quality graphics and thoughtful design, but also the plot. Who doesn’t want to be the lord of the seven kingdoms or participate in massive battles? One of the nice things about the Microgaming Slots is its symbolism. You can enjoy themed images as well as familiar music while playing.

The whole gameplay takes place against the backdrop of the legendary Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms. On the Internet you can find many movies and TV series that have slot analogues, but Game of Thrones stands out noticeably against their background. For example, one of the great things about this free slot no download is that during the free spins you can choose the royal house you want to represent.

Many players might think that a free slot no download machine game without downloading or registration is the easiest game to play and they don’t have to fight to win. However, it is not. To increase your chances of winning at the Microgaming free slot Game of Thrones, you can use various strategies and tricks. First of all, it is necessary to highlight a strategy that is considered the favourite of experienced players. It’s called Smart Gambler. The essence of this strategy is very simple. But at the same time, it retains its effectiveness and greatly increases your chances of winning. The point is that you should place the lowest possible bets per line.

If you have a winning combination on the reels and start playing to double your winnings, you should take this chance. You can double the amount until you decide it is large enough. This strategy allows any player to try a Game of Thrones slot on download with minimal risk.

For those players who open the Game of Thrones slot Microgaming for the first time in their lives and plunge into the battle for the title of lord of 7 kingdoms and get the right to sit on the legendary Iron Throne, there is a strategy called Zigzag, perfect for the first time. It suits those who first heard about “Game of Thrones” and decided to find out how diverse and original their gameplay is, what are the chances of a major victory, and much more. The essence of the Zig-Zag strategy is that you will have a minimum bet, but you must bet on a different number of lines. Your actions in this case should be as chaotic as possible in a free slot with a bonus.

There is another strategy that can bring you an almost guaranteed win in your favourite slot. This is called the Martingale strategy. It is perfect for the Game of Thrones slot as it has an RTP of 95%, which is ideal for this strategy. Another indicator to use is the presence of bonus symbols. You can also use the minimum betting range. Another metric to use is the ability to trigger a sequence of free spins, doubles, risk, and bonus round.

Almost every player and even a person who has nothing to do with online gambling have heard the Martingale strategy. However, not everyone can use it properly. With its help, you can almost easily beat the Game of Thrones slot no download machine. With this strategy, you will not only be able to get back your money spent on bets but also significantly increase them. If you have special combinations with him, your winnings can increase tenfold. What is the essence of this strategy? In this case, the entire gameplay in the free slot with bonuses is conducted only on one pay line. Your first bid should be as low as possible. If he loses, he needs to double it exactly. This scheme works until the first win.

After that, you need to start betting again with the lowest available. In addition, there is another reliable strategy for gamblers, which in most cases can help to thwart the desired winnings. These are Parley’s strategies.

Another way is to call it a strategy with big wins and minimum stakes. According to the principle of playing the game, in this case, after each loss, the bet is halved and the game is played along all pay lines. Thus, you can not only minimize possible risks but also expand your bank, even if it is small.

Turns out The Simpsons predicted the fate of King's Landing two years ago

Published

Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 5, “The Bells” embraced a big character arc for one of its biggest characters. Daenerys Targaryen became the Mad Queen, and unleashed fury on Cersei Lannister and her capital, King’s Landing. It turns out that The Simpsons actually predicted it a while ago. Read on.

In “The Bells” we saw Daenerys spare no mercy for the arguably morally dirty city of King’s Landing. Even after the city surrendered, and the bells were rung, Daenerys went on a rampage to burn them all. Turns out, the loved animated sitcom, which is also famous for predicting just all kinds of events, also predicted the fate of King’s Landing, back in 2017.

In the first episode of The Simpsons Season 29, which was titled The Serfsons, we saw The Simpsons set in an alternate reality that was pretty much a parody of Game of Thrones. There are White Walkers, magic necklaces, and of course, dragons. The trope is that in the end, we see the Simpsons look, as the dragon burns the city to the ground. Very much like Drogon razed King’s Landing to the ground.

Check out the clips in this video montage:

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving rather swiftly, and we might see George R. R. Martin’s prediction about the series’ release come to fruition. Various cast and crew members have been spotted by locals and reporters quite recently, despite HBO’s best efforts to keep the filming under the veil. The cast and the crew were spotted in Aldershot, and locals are leaking out quite a few details about the set.

In the most recent leaks from the set in Aldershot, fans have spotted a carriage bearing the sigil of House Strong. House Strong was already confirmed by HBO earlier last month when HBO released information about new additions to the cast, which included Ser Harwin ‘Breakbones’ Strong played by Ryan Corr, Larys Strong played by Matthew Needham, and Lord Lyonel Strong played by Gavin Spokes.

A few months ago, Game of Thrones actress Esmé Bianco filed a federal lawsuit against Marilyn Manson accusing him of rape and other acts of sexual violence. Marilyn Manson’s lawyers have denied all claims and said all the stories were forged by the actress. Recently, the court has denied the dismissal request put forward by Manson’s lawyers, meaning Bianco can move forward with the case.

Judge Fernando L. Aenlle-Rocha of the U.S. District Court of California denied Manson’s attempt to have Bianco’s claims dismissed based on the statute of limitations, court documents revealed Thursday. Manson has 14 days to respond to each of Bianco’s claims.

A reasonable jury could find that the effects of Warner’s alleged unconscionable acts, including the perceived threat to Plaintiff’s safety, immigration status, and career, persisted years after her last contact with Warner,” Aenlle-Rocha wrote in his court address.

Bianco first came forward on Feb. 10, as more than a dozen other women also made allegations against Manson. The lawsuit lays out Bianco’s allegations in similarly shocking detail. She alleges that Manson — whose legal name is Brian Warner — raped her in May 2011. Bianco also alleges that he repeatedly used drugs, force and threats to coerce her into other sexual acts. She accuses him of spanking, biting, cutting and whipping her without her consent during sex acts.

New House of The Dragon leaks might be showing the first look at Daemon Targaryen’s first wife

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving fast with its production, and we can expect a spring release in 2022. Most of the main characters have been cast, and HBO has officially declared who’s playing who in the much-awaited prequel. With set pictures leaking quite often on the internet, the fans are getting a glimpse of more cast members in action. Recently, another rather unknown member of the House of The Dragon cast came into the limelight, via a leaked picture from the Aldershot set posted by Portal House of The Dragon Brasil.

One of the most common theories about the cast member in question is that she’s playing Prince Daemon Targaryen’s first wife Rhea Royce. This is how the character’s wiki describes her:

In 97 AC, Queen Alysanne Targaryen wed her grandson, Prince Daemon Targaryen, to Lady Rhea Royce, the heir to Runestone. Although the marriage was a fine, rich match, the marriage was not a success. Daemon found the Vale of Arryn little to his liking and grew bored. He soon developed a dislike for his wife, holding no love or affection toward Rhea, referring to her as his bronze bitch, a mocking reference to the ancient armour of the Royces. Rhea likewise had no love for Daemon, and they were soon estranged.”

Well, the armour certainly checks out, but other details about the character are currently under wraps. Who do you think the character from the recent leaks is? Tell us in the comments below!

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving very swiftly, as evident from the frequent leaks we’re witnessing with every passing day. Though HBO has been mum about revealing any more info about the show, these periodic leaks are causing waves of excitement amongst the fans. Recently, a few more pictures from the production set were leaked. And we finally have a first look at Daemon Targaryen’s fabled Valyrian Steel sword the Dark Sister.

In one of the photos, Matt Smith, who’s playing Daemon Targaryen on the show, can be seen walking on the beach, his platinum blonde wig blowing in the wind as he rests one of his hands on his belt buckle while carrying his sword behind him.

Another image shows him in what looks like a melancholy state, kneeling in the sea with his shoulders hunched and his head bowed down as his sword stands upright in the sand.

The last of the photos show him lying on the sand, while Dark Sister is still stuck in the sand while Matt talks to a crew member.

This might be a soul-searching moment for Daemon Targaryen, since no other cast members are seen around him as he takes a stroll along the beach.

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving very swiftly, as evident from the frequent leaks we’re witnessing with every passing day. Though HBO has been mum about revealing any more info about the show, these periodic leaks are causing waves of excitement amongst the fans, as they’re left wondering and speculating who’s who in the new set pictures. Fans have been wondering for a while about some of the key characters that have not been announced yet. Recently, a few more pictures were leaked, depicting a scene being filmed involving a young Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon.

leanor-rhaenyra-7596856

We already know actress Milly Alcock is playing the younger version of Rhaenyra, as it was announced officially a while ago. However, this is the first time anyone has ever seen Laenor Velaryon in action, played by actor Theo Nate. Nate is a budding actor whose acting credits include Time (2021), a show starring Sean Bean.

laenor-rhaenyra-1-714x1024-6645642

Rhaenyra and Laenor were married at a young age, so the leaked pictures that have been circulating on the internet must be from around that time. Also, Laenor dies young in the books, after the couple have their children. So maybe Rhaenyra is seeing him off for the last time at the beach?

It has recently been confirmed that the production for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has returned to Cornwall. Several photos of the shoot were leaked recently, which included what looked like a huge huge battle sequence as well as the first look at Rhaenys Velaryon, Laenor Velaryon and a young Rhaenyra Targaryen. Fans of the fantasy epic might be psyched, but the neighbours to the show’s production site not so much.

A holiday park in Cornwall has complained that nearby filming for the Game Of Thrones spin-off House Of The Dragon has driven away their guests. The owners of The Meadow Holiday Park, who are neighbours to the show’s production site, have now said that they have lost business on account of the noise from production, which took place between 5 am and 10 pm.

Every time the National Trust rent out their car park for a lot of money we get disturbed,” owner Krys Humphrey explained to Cornwall Live. “The car park is quite big and they could easily put the generators and lorries on the far side of the car park which would make things better.”

more-leaks-from-the-set-of-house-of-the-dragon-hint-at-a-major-battle-scene-being-filmed-at-cornwall-7-1812674

She continued, “They are located next to the riverbank which is just a couple of metres from our holiday homes. We have asked them to move the generators but they say they can’t. The National Trust won’t reply to anything.”

Humphrey added that the House of The Dragon production team has offered to distribute gift baskets to those impacted by the noise, but that this will not suffice. “We have been told that it could continue for another three weeks,” she said, “I have some guests booked in who have a baby and others with a lady who is 94. It’s not fair.”

Various cast and crew members have been spotted by locals and reporters quite recently, despite HBO’s best efforts to keep the filming under the veil. The cast and the crew have returned to Holywell beach, but this time, the scale of production seems to be much more massive, covering a lot more ground than previous leaks, as reported by Cornwall Live.

The large scale filming and the shots that were being prepared looked as if they were preparing for a big battle sequence. Two boats followed by lines of smoke set the backdrop at Holywell Bay near Newquay. Well, where there’s smoke there’s fire, and fans can hope it is from the dragons we are so excited to see in the Game of Thrones prequel.

Marshals wearing high-vis jackets and facemasks lead cast members across the desert-like sands at Holywell Bay. Not much can be seen considering the distance, but the actors wearing turbans and yellowish attire seem to be from Dorne. There are also some Targaryen soldiers on the set, possibly from Rhaenyra’s section.

An unidentified Targaryen soldier was also seen gazing at the sea in a scene being shot on what appears to be a hilltop, possibly trying to encompass the scale of destruction of the battle. There are also some props resembling shipwrecks, that also point towards the theory.
