Have you guys heard that HBO greenlit one of the 4 or 5 GoT prequel series that have been in development for the last year or so?  From the news i heard on it a year ago, it sounded like the woman who was heading up one of them would probably be the right choice.  And so it is.  The chick....
https://en.wikipedia...i/Jane_Goldman

She will be working with George RR Martin on the new series.  She will be the show runner.  The setting will be in the Age of Heroes....which is basically the origins of all the major houses of Westeros.  This is fucking fantastic.  Here is a brief summary of the major players of this age:

Age of Heroes


The Age of Heroes was an era during the history of Westeros which takes its name from the great men and women who lived in the years of peace that followed the forging of the Pact between the First Men and the children of the forest.
Many noble houses trace their family histories to the Age of Heroes and many stories, songs, and legends are told about it.[1] It is an era that is shrouded in mystery, with more myth than fact known about it. There are numerous tales from the Age of Heroes, too many to count. These histories were not recorded in books but passed down from generation to generation through story and song. While some of them may be dismissed as fairytales everyone one of the Seven Kingdoms is defined by them.

History

The Age of Heroes began with the signing of the Pact on the Isle of Faces. The Pact ended the war of the First Men and the children of the forest[2] and lasted for nearly four thousand years.
During that time, a hundred kingdoms rose and fell. This was a rugged time where many ancient traditions and legacies forged by the First Men were established, with influence from the children. Many of these customs live on among the lords of the North, who still bear the blood of the First Men in their veins. The laws of hospitality, the obligation of a judge to also be the executioner, and the renowned Wall are all accredited to these ancestors of the northmen; the barrows of the First Men can still be found throughout the North. This was the time when many legendary kings and heroes walked the earth, such as: Other royal houses from the era include the Blackwoods,[6] Brackens,[6] and Darklyns.[7] During the Age of Heroes the Boltons are said to have flayed Starks and worn their skins as cloaks.[8] A dozen armies smashed themselves to bits upon the Bloody Gate.[9] The Ravenry of the Citadel is believed to have been the stronghold of a pirate lord.[10]
While much was achieved during this ancient era, it was at a cost - in the midst of the Age of Heroes fell the longest and blackest of winters - the Long Night which heralded the arrival of the Others. During this time it was also recorded by the Night's Watch that the children of the forest gave the defenders of the Wall a hundred obsidian daggers every year.[11]
Quotes



The oldest histories we have were written after the Andals came to Westeros. The First Men only left us runes on rocks, so everything we know about the Age of Heroes and the Dawn Age and the Long Night comes from accounts set down by septons thousands of years later. There are archmaesters at the Citadel who question all of it. Those old histories are full of kings who reigned for a hundred years, and knights riding around a thousand years before there were knights.[11]

I'm good with the audio books on that.  GRRM commented on it by saying something to the effect of the knowledge about those times as being too well known already.  Why rehash that in a series?   I tend to agree with him.  Also....were there dragons during that time?  I think there weren't.  Also....no White Walkers.  We have both of those things in the Age of Heroes.  Much more untold stories from then.  I just hope they do the Children of the Forest much better this time around.

I can't help but think that he decided long ago to delay the release of that book until after the show is done.  He's actually doing us a favor if that's the case.  I don't think i could stand another season of Cakbar and all the other book readers coming online, spoiling shyt and whining about how the show doesn't compare to the books.

:lol: I know right. I appreciate both but it would be nice to know about some of the other side stories that are going on, that aren't being shown.
