It has begun.
Tuco's edit: Noodleface didn't make this thread, I did. This is intended to be a thread for people to ask why they can't go into a thread for a TV show and talk about shit that doesn't happen in the tv show.

I guess I meant "Why is someone"
Not really... considering I was stating my prediction. I mean I thought that was the point of the thread. We could make predictions based on what we've seen and be free from this shit. When someone negs you and says "Spoilers" to a specific post then they themselves are spoiling it. What a faggot Chris is now that I think about it.
I could hit the cruise missile button and post a spoiler from "A Game of Thrones" big enough (probably not too big, not sure if they will even explore it) to make a certain person shit his pampers, but I know the boundaries and dont test them or go over them.

If you've read the books, why even discuss the show in this thread?
EDIT: This is to geffe, not Noodle.
Feel free to not post in the thread if you don't like how Tuco mods it. Also if you've read the books you've no real reason to discuss the show here, go to the spoilers thread.
It could be tough for some.. some people have read book3/4 but not book 5. Wouldn't want to go in that thread.
Anyways, I guess even reading reputation comments is not even sacred anymore.
Im on the same page as most everyone else on this thread. Ive only read A Game of Thrones and am not even a quarter way through A Clash of Kings. I answered a question and my used book knowledge to explain.
If someone asks a question about something that was addressed in a previous season and someone has book knowledge from that corresponding season that makes understanding easier without spoiling everything, that person should keep their mouth shut? If that's the case, I guess ill stfu
I have no issue with the edit, i can understand where you guys are coming from, just that season 1 was a while ago. ill watch what i post next time

Zero book discussion in the thread. It's been said countless times over the past seasons and will remain true for future seasons.
If a sentence would begin with "Well in the book they." stop right here because it's just going to be edited out. If the show hasn't really explained something then it simply hasn't been explained.
I think it would help if you reinstated the NO PUSSY SHIT in the title.
That really did help keep they PUSSY SHIT to a minimum.
Give a history lesson on Westeros or about characters leading up to season 1? Sure. Anything book related though that takes place in the same timeline as the show? (starting with episode 1 season 1) No.
Just don't talk about the books, it's not that hard. We talk about countless other shows that don't have books, talking about this one as if there are no books isn't hard either, people just want to make seem like it is.
Tuco's stance is much more hard nosed then mine and frankly as someone who has not read the books I'm fine with how he's doing it.

My recommendation: If you've read the books don't post in this thread. If someone is confused as to why something is going on in the show, someone else who only watches the show will answer. And if there's information that's not in the show that's in the books it's possible the show is planning on revealing it in a dramatic way.
Also my recommendation: If you haven't read the books and don't want the show spoiled then don't post in this thread, because you still can get spoiled by people calling your prediction a spoiler.
A rude finalization: Nobody values your book-based knowledge in this thread. If you want to talk about the books do it in the thread about them.

I've read the book on this thread and
I'm torn. I mean, in alot of ways I just wish the tv show fans would stop whining about spoilers and ...
Then again, I think that Game of Thrones is so much of a better tv show than 99% of tv shit out there, that I in many ways wish I hadn't read the books and could watch the show with a fresh mind. The production qualities are so much better than any show out there that they should win every award in that category without question. The amount of detail they put into even secondary characters in the show is greater than most shows do for their lead actor.
Funny thing is that i cant read and stopped reading after AGoT.
Are you blind or something? They have books on tape.
It seems like you should've figured out a way to make a Tuco post at the top of this or something. I almost negged him just for bitching. But then I realized it was just posts cut from the other thread.
Anyway, like I said in the Spoilers thread, if you haven't read the books at this point, it's your own fault for getting something spoilered. You're going on the internet to talk about it. Unless you've just got a completely misguided amount of faith in humanity, you should expect someone to try to spoil it for you. Just read the damn books so you don't end up fucking it up for yourself, or don't bitch if something happens.
Last edited by Izo; 04-05-2013 at 07:48 PM. Reason: Vaginas - Santa isn't real either.
Let's be real here, spoilers aren't the end of the world. I had almost every major event in the books spoiled for me and they were just as engaging and at times frustrating for me as they are for people who read them the day they came out. It reminds me of the Penny Arcade comic where Tycho is pissed at Gabe for spoiling King Kong. Come the fuck on.
That said, as a mod I carry out the will of Tuco and will fist you for violating the spoiler rule.
How is it a spoiler if it's from earlier in the timeline?
Keep the negs coming in. People think I created this thread, I enjoy this
All this pussy shit about spoilers is horrible. If you haven't read the books by now (A Storm of Swords came out in 2000, for fuck's sake) then you need to stay off the Internet, or at the very least avoid places where the book is discussed.
I had the major, unexpected event of A Game of Thrones spoiled for me simply from browsing the old Funny, Strange, Random Picture thread on FoH. Did I get all pissy about it? No, because I realized it was my own fucking fault for not reading a book that was over a decade old at that point. What did I do after that? I READ THE FUCKING BOOKS SO I WOULDN'T GET SPOILED AGAIN.
*Edit* Just to clarify, I'd never purposely spoil shit for anyone, but given the nature of the Internet you shouldn't get your panties in a wad if something happens and results in a spoiler (like the unintentional neg/spoilers that spawned all this). If you're not reading the books at this point you've just begging for trouble.

oh well, its no biggie, if people want to know something from the books just PM me im happy to tell you what you need to know.
Just make it easy for non-book readers and use the two threads for book readers.
Your argument is hindered by the fact that fresh content covering it is coming out now.Originally Posted by McCheese
My point is that people need to stop getting all salty about spoilers when they have had MORE than enough time to read the books. Hell, even the show is in its 3rd season and 2 years is more than enough time to have gotten caught up on all the books, even if you'd never even heard of Game of Thrones before the first episode aired (as was my case).
If you somehow REALLY don't have enough time to read the books and REALLY don't want the show to be spoiled...stay off the fucking Internet. I'd be careful about Facebook, Twitter, other forums, and any other social situations where people might talk about the show as well. Hell, you might want to just cut your power and stay in your house, you never know when two people sitting across from you in a restaurant will talk about the series in voices just loud enough for you to hear.
just buy the fucking things. you can get books 1-4 for under 20 dollars. thats a hell of a lot better than waiting 5+ years to see the same content on the TV screen and you will get a much richer story.
Also, during S1 when I had not read the books I appreciated the book readers that were willing to explain things without spoilers. The story is complicated as hell and not so easy to follow if you haven't read the books.
Why people give so many fucks about wanting to spoil something for others when those people have separated themselves in a whole different thread I'll never know.
Also no matter how much you bitch about it, it's not changing. Get over it and move on to the discussion that is taking place for you already in both the spoilers thread and the book thread.

Shut up Tarrant.
This is some serious Deja Vu. It's like a fucking cycle with this thread...It starts with out moderated for only ACTUAL spoilers (You know, about future events or things currently happening off screen). However, because a lot of people enjoy having certain more in depth aspects of the book covered for them (Like Inner monologues), book excerpts of already past scenes are allowed within spoiler tags. However, eventually someone lets an actual spoiler slip, or someone is called out for being a nostrodouche (There by spoiling by proxy thought negs)--and all the sudden some mod goes militant and decides the only effective strategy is scorched earth (Was Faille last time). That lasts for a few weeks until everyone is afraid to post in the thread because they will be labeled a nostrodouche and/or a spoiler sympathizer (by asking about book specifics of past scenes), and get infacted by said, now fucking crazy, mod. (Like BrutulTM is now dangerously close to being a spoiler sympathizer, I think it might be off to the nazi interment camps for you, spoiler lover!)
Eventually, things get out of hand, "no pussy shit" is added to the title, and we go back to sane moderation. I don't care either way, I stopped posting in the non-spoiler thread the moment Faille went fucking crazy--I'm just saying, scorched earth is a pretty shitty strategy, Tarrant.

2) If you read my post earlier in this thread you'll see that I said, "Just to clarify, I'd never purposely spoil shit for anyone". I have no desire to spoil things for people (thus me not posting in the non-spoiler thread). In fact, I posted this same desire not to spoil people about a week ago in the spoilers thread. Why do you think I'd want to spoil anything?
3) Why do you think I'm salty about 2 threads existing? I never complained about that, and I don't think there is any problem with a non-spoiler thread. If you read my posts, you'll see that the thing I think is stupid is the drama that develops over unintentional spoilers, as evidenced by the events that spawned this thread.
I really don't care if people refuse to read the books and thus get spoiled unintentionally. I've read them, I enjoyed them, and I am enjoying the TV show. I just think it's stupid to have so much drama over it when it can all be avoided if people read the books. I also don't understand how you can read my post and so completely misunderstand everything written in it.
It's absolutely impossible to completely avoid spoilers when you're on the Internet, let alone on a message board like this with people such as Kegkilla and other asshats. I just think everyone would be better off if they'd read the decade-old books. Whatever, like Lithose said, the shit is going to hit the fan at some point before the season ends, and when it does it will be the idiotic non-book-readers who will suffer for it (again). Those of us who have read the books really don't give a shit either way, other than not having to see stupid threads like this appear.
Last edited by McCheese; 04-06-2013 at 05:51 AM.
You're right it is absolutely impossible to avoid all spoilers, all we're asking is for people to not add to the the percentage chance of whatever that baseline is.
And clearly your argument of "us book readers don't give a shit either way" or else this thread wouldn't be in existence.
Also I enjoy the "You're not reading THESE books...you must be illiterate and not read books at all" generalization that keeps getting thrown out there. It's amusing. I totally plan on reading them after fat ass finishes the series in 10 or 12 years assuming he lives long enough to do so.
I know Tarrant won't read them, but I strongly encourage anyone else who hasn't read the books yet to do so and join us in the spoilers thread. There are several people posting in that thread who have said they were glad they picked up the books, even though initially they wanted to only stick to the TV show.
Not to mention your enjoyment of the show will increase exponentially because you'll understand things a lot more easily. I don't care what anyone says, GoT is a very complex show with lots of characters and concurrent stories. It's very helpful to have the book knowledge when watching the show.

Last year Keg was banned for awhile by Tuco I believe for purposely spoiling stuff about the show, same would happen again I've no doubt. Just don't talk about the books in the no spoilers thread, it's that simple and warrants no arguments. Really it doesn't.
before i read the books last fall i would ask all these questions about stuff and every time all i got was "just read the books, we cant answer you without spoiling it" , so i manned up and bought them and caught up in 5 weeks. so im now waiting on book 6 like everyone else who read the previous 5, which is a double edged sword because who the fuck knows if they will ever get completed.
Scorched Earth is the only way to go. After you burn it, you have to salt it. In the modern age it would even be good to bury some spent fuel rods out there too.
Be grateful for Tuco's compassion. He -should- sterilize you all.
Getting pissy about spoilers for game of thrones is as bad as getting pissy about LOTR spoilers. lol. But there is divergence between the show and the books in characterization. I personally see the two threads as just relating to that -- a person talking about the books and a person talking about the show could be discussing the exact same character and the same portrayed situation but still be talking about 2 significantly different things.
Last edited by Tarrant; 04-06-2013 at 07:16 PM.
ehh, I think it's kinda lame to bring up stuff about a book because it spoils the book for anybody who might want to read it.
edit.. especially if this thread is about the game of thrones no spoiler thread.
With the pace GRRM writes. A person would be better off waiting for the series to be completed than trying to read the books then wait 4 or 5 years for the next.
It's the main reason I haven't read his latest novel yet. I started reading the series a few years after A Feast For Crows was released (2007) and when I finished all his books in the series he still hadn't finished "A Dance With Dragons". Then finally 3 years later he comes out with A Dance With Dragons. Still haven't read it yet but I'll probably read it so I can continue the tv show unspoiled.
I think this series would be best read when it's complete.
on a related note.
nothing rustles my jimmies more than an author who dies before wrapping up their stories then having a shitty second rate author finish it up.

I'll never get that attitude=P Are the hours spent enjoying the fuck out of the books totally invalidated? It would be so much better for everyone involved for the people who feel that way to take their own advice and not read, but then against all their weepy bitch tendencies proceed to just shut the fuck up about it. You people sound like preachy born again catholic assholes. I know most of you played some MMO with some motherfuckers who quit and then made a point of telling you how much better their life was without EQ/WoW/EVE/whatever. And I know you all hates those motherfuckers. Well guess what, now you are those motherfuckers.
edit: I think I'm getting bad at messageboarding. I spend way too much time bitching at people to stop talking about stuff.....on a messageboard. What an asshole...
In general I'd suggest reading a book series if an author could put out a book every 2 or 3 years.
when it gets into 5 years plus though I'd say wait and see. Game of Thrones is a special case though because it has the TV show so I'd suggest reading before watching.
I'm not blessed with perfect recall or a photographic memory so when it's five or more years after reading a book, I have to reread an entire series again just to get up to speed again on all the plot lines (especially in an intrigue filled book like Game of Thrones).
There are plenty of great books out there to read so there really isn't a rush to finish a series imo. Wait for that shit to be done before starting. It's my general attitude toward tv shows nowadays also.
My jimmies get rustled by tv shows being canceled that I like, so I rarely watch a show that has less than four or five seasons any more.
I've received a lot of shit due to this thread, and that's fine. People still assume I created it, or that I care about negs or whatever; I really don't. My bitching was for having shit spoiled in a safe thread. And btw I looked and saw the person stated in the spoilers thread that he did just that and perhaps felt he was in the wrong. I mean I guess I thought we could talk about predictions and other stuff without being bothered but obviously not. I don't think him telling me a spoiler was an absolute mega dildo in my ass, it just really annoyed me. I'll definitely stay out of both of those threads now because I'd rather just watch the show and not worry about being shit on.
As for reading the books, thanks for the advice. If I wasn't staying up until 4 or 5 am every night trying to finish my degree, perhaps I could finish the series. Just not in te cards right now. I read the first book years before the show aired, but life took over. I intentionally never look up anything online having to do with asoiaf because everyone is trying to spoil it for you. There must be some psychological reason that humans do this. Maybe asserting dominance or something.
Oh well. That's my last post on the topic.
We have two GoT threads..spoilers and no spoilers. I dunno how the other one was contaminated, but don't be like "omg Storm of Swords is 13 years old just read it" when the thread very specifically exists to protect people who have, for whatever reason, not read the books. It literally has no other purpose on Rerolled.org.
I don't think it's unreasonable for people to bitch when the clearly labeled "no spoilers" thread gets shit on, accident or not. If you're consciously choosing to post in a "no spoilers" thread you should make the tiniest bit of extra effort not to fuck the whole thing up for people who are using it as a refuge to discuss the show without having read the books.

lol no fucking clue what the hell happened with me getting rrp'd, as I dont even remember typing anything close to a spiler, considering I never even read the books. But whatever.
No clue what the hell Tuco did with my avatar but Im not sure if I should like it?
Because you posted information that came from the conclusion of other information that hasn't been on the show and was only in the books. Thus you had to have got the information from the books. (I don't know what this was because it was delted before I saw it.)
If I were you I probably wouldn't post in this thread anymore.
You made a post comparing shit that happened in the book to shit that happened in the show, proving that you had read the books. Stop trying to play coy and stick to the spoiler thread.
Jozu, either stop posting in this thread or stop theorizing. There is a thread dedicated to you in the rickshaw if you want to get a more in depth explanation.
Oh now I remember. I mentioned something about how a character not looking like he did in the (spoiler). Only reason I even mentioned that because someone had said something similar back on FOH inbetween seasons. I never did read the (spoiler) so why would I fucking lie? People were banned on FOH for spoiling shit for me, so get fucked astro. You should probably stop posting in every thread.
Either way, someone in my position could get infracted just for speculating about the happenings of the show. Discussion about a subject is the entire point of these boards, and Im sorry if Im not smart enough to distinguish between talking about what I watched, and formulating theories based on what I just watched. Its all kind of confusing really, this thread is a minefield of sorts lol.
It makes me sad too because people should know that yes I am a retard, and post retarded shit sometimes, but one thing I am not is a (purposely) destructive poster who is trying to ruin shit for other people.
lol, i was trying to keep you from getting banned jozu, nevermind me then. keep going like you have been. either way you wont be around here too much longer
If someone wants to ban me because of an honest mistake then go ahead. I have done nothing but try to have healthy discussions on various topics of my interest. I have never once been rrpd the 4 plus years I been on these boards. Yeah I am retarded sometimes but dont try to suck tuco's dick now that Lord Stark almost took my head.
edit: and lol @ the Luftwaffe Commandant as my avatar. I wasnt sure who it was at first but yeah thats him. Lord Tuco what is the meaning behind this....lol? I kind of like it tbh Im just too stupid to understand the reasoning behind it.

The whole fun of the no spoilers thread is the genuine reactions of people to the story and their uneducated speculation of what may happen. When an unspoiled innocently wonders something not yet covered by the show and tool readers jump in to explain all the ins and outs, or worse, lead people in the right direction through hinting, there's no chance of the thread fulfilling its entertainment potential.
Yeah. Astroturd shouldn't be allowed to post in the no spoilers thread either.

They might not fight for no one, but Dondarrion was sent from Ned Stark like xadion said. What happened after that no one knows but apparently they picked up 2 badasses in Anguy and Thoros and they want to stop the war or at least try to defend the lands of Westeros. Tht probably means killing Lannisters or anyone allied with them. It doesnt make sense that Dondarrion would just randomly say "fuck Ned Starks son, lol!".
Not only that but the Lannisters and the Mountain were fucking torturing people by the hundreds apparently trying to pry information from them about the brotherhood. So if they were going to that length to find the Brotherhood, they would be the Brotherhoods biggest threat, so them fighting against the Northmen is not only unlikely but just flat out wouldnt make sense from a war perspective.

HBO viewer guide says they plague the Lannisters every chance they get, so they're allied with Rob by actions if not by words. /shrug
I never realized not posting in certain threads was so difficult. Seems like lots of people here find it challenging.
Did they mention the dudes name who cut Jamies hand off? I got banned like 748365387563478 times already in this thread so I wont get into it much further just kind of wondering why he was sent to bring back Jamie etc. I thought that was Boltons Bastard at first but he seems too old. Plus the guys in the woods said "You...bastard!" before he dies to the kid with Theon so....
You keep getting RRP'd because Tuco banished you from this thread. Not sure how many times you have to get sent to the RRP before that sinks in.

This thread is awesome. Having read the books, I agree completely with the rules set forth. Only discuss the show. Only. Hopefully the show inspires people to read the books so they can have a more in-depth understanding of the story.
Wow I've seen plenty of movie violence but that last scene with Catelyn was BRUTAL. No way she is coming back from that one.
I initially thought, yeah, maybe he could fly and warn other wildlings, but thinking upon it further that would be pretty fucking stupid because people who could warg would have an immortal soul and then what? Its not as if he could warg back into another person and say whats up.
