    Well it depends what you mean by a broadsword (usually a basket hilt or an arming sword, but can also be used to describe back swords and longswords). Even most longswords are only about 1.6Kg though, I wouldn't say that was that heavy.
    I am talking things that take at less two hands to hold just to keep up.

    Gah the season premiere was amazing, anyone else watch it? I was so excited to see Dragonstone added to the amazing opening credits


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    I felt the part where they added the hunt for the bastards was not needed.

    Really? I feel like it adds to the grit of the show, you know they're willing to do anything and this shows it.

    In the book, the reason arry and friends are attacked is because the chaos the war has caused. Now that is taken away. This added mess just makes the boy king a comic book character.

    I haven't read the books yet so I cannot nit pick every detail the series leaves out but in terms of the pacing of the plot the series seems to be progressing nicely. I liked Joffrey's bastard hunt though cause it just builds up the hate for him even more I guess.

    Now my question to the people who've read to books is was that an accurate event? Joffrey ordering the Bastard hunt?

    "He is now declaring his words to the WORLD!"

    Honestly, I can't remember. I think it was Cersi in the books but I do think it adds to the show instead of taking from it. Joffery is nothing but a sadistic little sh*te anyway so the bastard hunt doesn't diminish his character while making Gendry more sympathetic. Also, as a side note, he's been writing these things since 1991 and it took five years for a 'dance of dragons' to come out so I really don't expect the show to stay faithful and/or last until the end. Either they'll end it abruptly or it'll become a bastardization so don't go wasting all your rage on the first few seasons.

    ....and I'm three months late to join the conversation.

    I love Steal! <3
