Q: 80's cartoon featuring a "magic toolbox"

Nu'DaqThis was so long ago I barely remember any of it- what I do recall is when the hero and his friends got in trouble, there would be this scene where (I think) the boy's arm would temporarily stretch (and possibly briefly change colour), then he would reach into his toolbox and retrieve the necessa...

2:17 AM
Q: Did the queen allow Jon to visit Tyrion?

JJJIn S08E06 we see Jon visit Tyrion It seems the guards do allow him into the room as Jon hands his sword over to them. Knowing Tyrion, it's not far-fetched that he'd try to talk Jon into things. Hence my question, did Queen Daenerys allow the visit?

Q: Open carry around Westerosi VIPs

JJJIn S08E06 we see Jon hand in his sword when he On the other hand, he has his sword when he What is the policy on carrying swords around VIPs? Is there a policy?

2:36 AM
Q: Why did drogon burn down the ...?

JJJIn S08E06 we see Drogon burn down the Why did he do that? Did he grow a conscience and see that it was a source of evil?

Q: Why did Samwell Tarly have a vote?

JJJIn S08E06, we see the lords of Westeros One of the first to exclaim their vote was Samwell. Why was he allowed to vote? Why did he have a seat at the 'table'? As far as I know he is not a lord or a lady.

2:49 AM
@Jenayah In M:tG creatures are "summoned" into play. It predates Pokémon by a couple of years.
And predates Jenayah...
@Alex I'm guessing Pokémon probably does too. I didn't think that was relevant. A lot of books I love were published before I was born too; why does that signify?
Nothing. It was just another opportunity to make fun of her youth.
Q: Is there still a Night's Watch?

JJJIn S08E03, In S08E06, we see that Jon is Does the Night's Watch still exist? If so, what is their purpose now? The dead are gone and the people north of where the wall used to be (the Free Folk) are Jon's friends.

Q: Has the wall been repaired?

JJJAt the end of season 7 we saw the Night King's army destroy (at least part of) the wall. At the end of S08E06, we see Jon go north of the wall. In those final shots, the wall seems to be intact. Has it been repaired? Why is there no visible damage?

3:08 AM
@Alex It would serve you right if she turned out to be like Erythrina in "True Names" and was in her 60s.
@DavidW It would also serve me right not knowing who Erythrina is or what "True Names" is.
@Alex Tut. "True Names," by Vernor Vinge is considered one of the stories that laid the groundwork for the cyberpunk movement.
@DavidW That assumes that I know what the cyberpunk movement is...
@DavidW well in Magic you play as a planeswalker
They're special
(Also makes it so that story guides conflict with cards. Some cards say “destroy target planeswalker”, which some of my friends liked to mess with.)
@Stormblessed The planeswalker thingy is relatively new; at least I never heard it when I was playing. That also doesn't change the fact that the mechanic of putting creatures into play was called "summoning."
@Alex Y'know, I half expected that. :) If you want an overview or a reading list, ping me tomorrow.
3:18 AM
@DavidW Tomorrow for whom?
I'm addressing you, so you. Sometime after your next local midnight.
But before the second local midnight?

4:55 AM
Q: Has Season 8 been co-written by both GRRM and D&D or just by D&D?

Anu7The books end at when Jon is killed ( if I'm not wrong - and I don't know if new ones came out ). But the show super-cedes the books.. So is the script for the show (everything after Jon is killed) written by just Benioff and Weiss or is GRR Martin (author of the books that inspired the show) i...

This is where things get confusing -- during dial...

@Alex doesn't mean I don't know of it :)
Q: Why isn't Tyrion mentioned in 'A song of Ice and Fire'?

Alec AHe certainly deserved to. He mentions that he didn't think he'd be spoken of kindly. Why did the maester dislike him?

Q: Why is Samuel Tarly considered a lord?

Alec AHaving joined the Night's Watch, he forsook his rights to any land or titles. So why is he on the council will all the lords?

ashveliIn extension to this question, why did Drogon leave Jon after the death of Drogon's mother. Drogon had consciousness to destroy the Iron Throne. We all know that Drogon allowed Jon to pet.

Q: Why did the wights pile up when they were stabbed by dragonglass?

Karl M. AllanicIn Game of Thrones S08E03, Before the Battle of Winterfell, it is clear that they tipped the wooden stakes with dragon glass. But why was it that Melisandre still had to cover the trenches in flames? Also, why did the wights not disintegrate when they got stuck on the dragon glass tipped stakes?

Q: Why other houses did not demand this?

HBhatiaIn Game of thrones Season 8 finale Sansa Why did other houses remain silent. They could also demand the same for their own kingdom. I could guess they are not very powerful to demand anything but there was no harm putting that in front of

Q: Why can't Sansa simply send for Jon?

Alec AThe North have a large army. Could they not just march south, offer Jon his kingship in the North, and be fine? His "brother" is the king and I doubt the Unsullied would start a war over a king in a separate kingdom.

Q: Why did Bran come all this way?

David GrinbergIn the final episode, Tyrion makes an impassioned speech about To which Bran responds Or something like that, I don't remember the exact quote. But why would Bran say that? His power is to see the past, so he couldn't have known Tyrion was going to say that.

Q: Why is Sansa hell-bent on her decision?

Anu7Winterfell has been a part of the North (capital of the North) and the home to the Starks (for over 8000 years). They've been a part of the Seven Kingdoms for probably a lot of years (if not centuries - but I am not sure of this). It has been under King Robert Baratheon's and before that under th...

Q: Would Jon have been made ruler of Dragonstone?

Anu7Jon is a Targaryen - Bran is in the most powerful position now.. What Jon did was treason according to the rule book and by Dany's followers, but hypothetically if his heritage was revealed, and his intentions behind the act AND a vote was taken, Jon would have been exonerated And he would have ...

Q: What is in west of Westeros?

Ankit SharmaIn Game of Thrones S08E06 Arya is going in the west of Westeros. But do we ever have any hints what is lying there in the west of Westeros? Did it ever get mentioned before in the show or books or any other extended material? Is there any hints or rumor about the place beyond Westeros?

Q: What is west of Westeros?

KharoBangdoIn Game of Thrones S08E06, we see and set sail to West of Westeros. Jon asks her what is there in West of Westeros & she replies with something like Nobody knows?

Anu7Its established that Bran can do the following things: Warging, Greensighting (seeing past and present), being a three-eyed raven.

LevenTrekThe final Game of Thrones books haven't been published (or even written) yet. But RR Martin has consulted on the show since the beginning.

Q: How Jon's hierarchy matters?

NitwitIn S8 the audience comes to the realization that Jon Snow is no bastard, he's Aegon Targaryen and he's the heir to the Iron Throne. and in the finale we see Jon murder Daenerys probably because of Tyrion's pep talk, especially when he says: "Do you think I'm the last man she'll execute?" b...

Q: Why Bran did not warg into Drogon?

SamualIt is seen that Bran can control any living things with some magic power in Game of Thrones.
