    I know people are hard on the map design but I like how off it looks. In line with the vibe of the books. Something just isn't right in this place. However Essos being another rectangle is lazy as hell.

      Essos isn’t actually a rectangle, the maps we have are just what the Maesters have created and because they don’t have any real way of mapping out the area they represent it with a rough shape, just like what happened IRL

                It's a very common statement made by blacks that feel insecure about being historically irrelevant and dumb.

    The most interesting parts of Planetos are never seen and barely even mentioned in the story.
    I wish we had some storyline go into Asshai.

      The further away places are the less people actually know about them and the more wacky ridiculous stories get told about them. That stuff's probably 99% bullshit.

        That's why it's good. Secretive magic with occult and horror themes that exists on the periphery and influences events from the shadows is way better than a battle mage casting fireballs to vaporise a hundred goblins. Though I will say I think dragons are too big and overpowered. They should be smaller and still a massive asset but not a totally impervious instawin button. We see this issue finally culminate in the show where they had to be killed in comical fashion.

      And that's a good thing, the most of all other fantasy doesn't have such a great potential for exploration. Other authors just describe their whole setting and that's all.

    That's like complaining that Europeans didn't know about the American continents in the 1200's. No, they do NOT understand circumnavigation, and are unsure generally about the shape of the world - mostly because any previous attempts at sending ships far in that direction seem to have failed. Heck, as viewers WE are still unsure about the shape of the SOIAF setting, so you can bet that most people within it don't even have the start of an idea.

    Didn’t Euron supposedly sail to Asshai? Being the one guy in the story to encounter that whacky shit first hand should have really made his character more creepy and mysterious. Instead we got Mr Finger in the Bum.

      they say some dragon riders flew and flew and found nothing so turned back
      same with the targaryan princess that tried to explore sothoros she flew as far south as she could but the continent was so massive eventually she turned back and said it was just endless jungle
