Garth Green, Banos, John Snow discussed on Overthinking It Podcast


But, you know, made peace with them, and then came to adopt worshiping the, the old gods as gods. And so west rose was in this homeo- stasis for a long time where they were trees and people and elves and giants and mammoths and all sorts of, like pre historical stuff living in this sort of state of suspended, advancement, we're nothing was really happening for really long time led by these people. Call green Xeres, right? And the most famous one that we hear about is Garth green, who made the land bloom, and they also the great king of the iron islands, and they all sit on thrones that are trees. Right.

Right. So west rose is working like this. Yes, we would you say that it is inevitable. What is what inevitable the depopulation of, of? Let's say half of the population. Or a number of planets in, let's say just a snap of the fingers is it inevitable all I'm saying is that when John snow went to pet his dog that did put a smile on my face like is how many Banos quotes can we throw eaten year?.
