Mar 11 2015 12:00 AM | JCWamma in Articles

In the first of an eight-part, eight-author series speculating on and examining our hopes for each house faction in Game of Thrones 2.0, Istaril brings us his take on the House of the Kraken.

From the glory days of Harren the Black to Balon’s re-establishment of the “Old Ways”, the Iron Islands are a kingdom apart, stuck in the past. How will it change to face the challenges of AGOT 2.0?
