The Kidd here...
If you're a GAME OF THRONES fan, you know from last night's season finale that winter is finally here. Well, that then makes it a perfect time for me to settle on five winners of the GAME OF THRONES video game, complete with hardcover book featuring concept art and visuals from the game.
Stemming from the roleplay approach of the game, I wanted to know what your first order of business would be if you were appointed Hand of the King. For one reason or another, these are the winners with some rather intriguing agendas:
- Cameron Harrison
As Hand of the King I would immediately demand I be given access to the mystical HBO Box...so I wouldn't have to plug my ears and go "la la la" whenever my friends who practice illicit downloading activities talk about the current season while I patiently wait for the DVDs to come out. I mean, being The Hand must come with some privileges, right?
- Brian Staudinger
Here me people of Westeros, as newly appointed Hand of the King my first decree will be to enact a pension plan for all the painted whores in the realm. Yes, it is true that time can be a cruel mistress and that the Dothraki Drip can wither a women, but I say Nay!, let us not forget the countless hours these women devoted to their craft and the happiness they bring throughout the Seven Kingdoms. As the Hand of the King it would be my utmost honor to take care of the ones that "take care" of all of us.
- Christopher Troilo
Hire Hodor to pound Joffrey around by his ankle like a ragdoll, Hulk v. Loki style, in the middle of the throne room during court.
- Gary Warren
My first order of business as the Hand of the King is to force the bard George R.R. Martin to release the next damn book!
- Chris Wroge
My first order as the Hand of the King would be the following:Sansa will hereby be relegated to wearing only a thong in the presence of the Hand.
That's it. That's the list.
Oh, sure... Westeros wouldn't exactly prosper by some of these items being taken care of first, and, in a few cases, they'd wind up with the Hand's head up on a spike... but at least it'd make for some entertainment in the short term, and that's good enough for me and good enough to win GAME OF THRONES the video game.
Congrats to all our winners, and thanks to everyone who participated. Thanks once again to Atlus to hooking us up with the games.
