It kind of sucks that a world this big with so many books that could be written and tales yet to be told in print was created by someone who takes 8 years to finish a story about 1/16th part of that world.

The more east you go from the Bone Mountains the more the world starts to look like actual classic fantasy.
This is why Asoiaf is good material for Dungeons and Dragons.

It's funny how in a lot of fantasies, the places and time periods outside where the main story take place have way weird and crazy stuff.
Lord of the Rings, Wheel of Time, Warhammer, etc. all have incredibly epic or eerie things taking place before or outside the main story.

I know it's a fantasy world but, a dragon flying at 50 km/h, in a year without stop would go through 432 thousand kilometers, while the whole circunference of Jupiter's equator is approximately 449 thousand kilometers. This planet would have to be bigger than that in order for one to fly over Sothoryos for 3 years without reaching it's end.
Awesome video by the way.

I remember reading a lot of fantasy as a kid and being absolutely enthralled by the world and lore of whatever it was I was reading. I would literally lie awake in bed after visiting the library, and I would imagine myself fighting lizard-men and sailing around islands covered in exotic jungle. When I slept, I prayed that I would dream of these adventures so I could live them out in full every night before school.
Now that I'm older, it's been a LONG time since I've experienced that same feeling of wonder and mystery that I felt when I was a kid, but this video is the first time in perhaps FIFTEEN YEARS that I felt that familiar feeling stir within me from long ago.
It's kind of weird, but I want to thank George Martin and your channel for reminding me what it felt like to be a kid again who didn't have to worry about things like jobs, and girls, and money, and for whisking me away to these exotic, untouchable places for 23 minutes and 13 seconds. Maybe I'll dream about it again tonight, just for old time's sake.

Its a shame there wasn't a more clever way for the Night King to be defeated all this rich history and lore of magic and the best D&D came up with was draw him out and fling Arya Ex Machina from a mile away.

Well now I'm hoping in one of the supposed several spin-offs that are apparently in production, we'll get to see glimpses of Asshai, Yi Ti, Yeen, and these other ancient, creepy lovecraftian cities/civilizations. The Long Night, Aegon's Conquest, The Dance of Dragons, The tales of Dunk and Egg and Robert's Rebellion all sound interesting enough, but I want a series that focuses or at least lets us have a cool peek at the obscure places of lore in Martin's work. Like when Dany goes to Qarth

There is really no point in speculating about all this when its more then likely that George RR Martin didnt even think of a backstory. Its like speculating about the events in Lost and hoping it had sense behind it...

Dude, Sothoryos is so inherently interesting. I'd love to learn more about The Green Hell. If I could pick my ideal GOT spin-off show, it'd be about a bunch of ship-wrecked sailors fighting off Basilisks and Wyverns while trying to take shelter in Yeen.

Aren't the Ironborn a Lovecraft reference? Their banner is Cthulhu-esque and their contradictory motto about death is basically a spin on Lovecraft's "with strange aeons even death may die".

This is amazing. I absolutely need to buy a copy of The World of Ice and Fire.
Honestly, the plot of the main books is cool and everything, but the lore here is just way better and a lot more interesting.
Whenever I try to do worldbuilding for a story myself, I always end up focusing on just the lore and get ZERO ideas for the main plot. I think I'm just really bad at it.

"Lyber, where acolytes of a spider god warred with those of a serpent god"
This HAS to be a reference to the sci fi author Fritz Leiber, whose "Big Time" series involves a time war between the "spider" and "snake" factions! I wonder how many will catch this reference.

Is leaving this large of a mystery to the world very crucial for fantasy books? Because I like fantasy, and the lord of the rings middle earth has a similar dynamic, where Tolkien focused on the west mostly and the east up to mystery or in the silmarillion and other books alike

Wonder, how the world of GoT would play out further, a few hundred years further, maybe even with slight tehcnological advancement to maybe 16th century technology, with Westerosi forces trying at their own attempts of colonialism, maybe Arya even would've found something west of Westeros to colonize or they would try to discover and colonize Sothoryos.
