East: the strangest places in Game of Thrones?

  • Опубликовано: 11 декабря 2018
  • What strange places lie to the far east and south of Westeros? What are the dangers of Sothoryos and the Basilisk Isles? What lurks in the Shivering Sea? What does the Great Empire of the Dawn and the Five Forts reveal about the Long Night and Azor Ahai? What are the dark mysteries of Asshai?

      Even though learning about the histories and cultures of these other lands makes Westeros politics seem almost insignificant; and even though none of this is real, I still love the concepts of mysterious but in some cases, highly civilised societies. I imagine the high Lords of Westeros think they are at the hight of civilisation but in Yi Ti they could be much more advanced.
      Ashai is by far the most interesting to me. I want to know so much more but the mystery surrounding it is what makes it so fascinating.

                          On a more serious note, notice how a lot of this is prefaced with "it's been said". There's probably plenty of weird shit going on in the far reaches of the ASOIAF setting, but there's also probably a lot of legend mixing with fact.
