So ibbenese are dwarves? Edit: They also have goblins in Essos. Cool. Why aren't such motives in the main story?

The Story is of "Ice and Fire" .......But Everyone is Presuming in their mind.....Ice is to be defeated by Fire.....think about it...... Why should Ice be Bad....and Fire be Good......OR......Ice should Loose....Fire should Win.......No where it proposes that One of them wins and other looses...... It is Story of Two Things...."Ice and Fire"........Not a Story of "Good and Bad".......
Daniel Windrus (1 year ago)
The Wood Walkers sound very similar to the Children of the forest.
najex1 (1 year ago)
I suspect that a lot of the 'information' on the north-eastern people of Essos is just a lot of superstition. It is just a little too outlandish for such a low magic setting as asoiaf.
D1craigRob (1 year ago)
is this just a rip off of lotr?
Victor_D (1 year ago)
The thing is, 95% of this is likely to be just exaggerated hearsay. GRRM often pokes fun at people's imagination and how it fills that what is unknown with outrageous mythical creatures :-) Specifically, compare this with mediaeval Europeans' conception of what Asia and Africa were like. They knew very little for certain, so they usually made the rest up totally from thin air. People with animal heads, various monsters, all kinds of nonsense :-)

P K (1 year ago)
Could there be more islands or even a small continent within the shivering sea? I would really love to learn more about the unknown parts of the world, maybe even a world map once the Main series is finished. Sothoryos and North and East- Essos, Ulthos and maybe Americos if it exists surely have so many tails to tell. Martin can probably write a second 7 part series focussing on the Fortresses in Yi Ti and the east.
skelitonking117 (11 months ago)
P K there’s no such thing as an empty expanse. Oceans commonly have more vast empty space due to their sheer size but seas will usually have islands too small for people to bother to map.

Don't take that s the wrong way and I love ur vids m8 but where the bloody hell are those Star Wars videos u promised? I wanna learn more bout Darth Revan and other ancient Sith, which I know I can do from other channels like Stupendous Wave and all, but it's not the same as ur vids
sevenik (1 year ago)
great vid bro,didnt know much about the shivering sea,and most of the known world until i watch ur vids..
Aidan McNary-Hickey (1 year ago)
CivilizationEx (1 year ago)
Coming very soon, this was the last ASOIAF vid for awhile, Thursday is the first SW vid which is Part 1 on Revan. Then that will be followed with Part 1 of my New Republic series on Sunday, then I will be doing a Rogue One video and ending the month with Thrawn. January will be SW as well, so plenty coming :)

So many mysterious stuff crammed into the world of ASOIAF. I wonder if we'll ever really get to see from a POV perspective any of these places, whether in the main series or any of the other books...? I hope so.

They're not neanderthals. They're Ibbenese. The world of ASOIAF and GOT is not Earth.
Ben Kielar (1 year ago)
Wow, I didn't even make that connection, I just assumed Tolkienian dwarves. Neanderthals sounds way cooler though.
Wangtorio Jackson (1 year ago)
Damn, there is a lot of bad stuff that is rumored to be lurking in the Shivering Sea and the far north. Usually when there are so many rumors and so much supposedly dangerous stuff said to be blocking passage somewhere, it's because someone somewhere at one point or another didn't want people to go there and started tales to scare them away.....
legionarius Wojak (1 year ago)
Hey that's pretty good
StealthyTNT (1 year ago)
Ever notice how the further you get from the Citadel, the stranger and more shocking the myths and stories get? This was addressed in the comments section of one of CivEx's videos I think, you may have seen it. I thought it was a really cool theory. Imagine a soldier from Yi-Ti, who is garrisoned in the Five Forts, hearing tales of iron krakens destroying entire fleets, golden lions who savagely eat babies, living and destructive green fire, a huge eye sticking out of the ground, and dark men who man a massive wall of solid ice(well...). He probably thinks Westeros is a place of nightmares and darkness, and looks over at the shadowlands where the mountains are made of rocks that just happen to be a dark color and where there is a lot of fog maybe due to like natural geysers or something, and where outcasts and bandits hide and base their raids.

MuzzySkeleton (1 year ago)
your videos are a joy to watch and hear, keep up the good work!
Joan Masdeu (1 year ago)
There are many similar things with LOTR eg the kingdom of Sarnor (now fallen) is a clear reference to the ancient kingdom of arnor and the short and strong people of ibben are identical with the dwarves.
marinus18 (6 months ago)
I wouldn't say they are identical to dwarves. The Ibbenese are based on neanderthals which were on average shorter than modern humans. Dwarves live in the mountains far from sea while the Ibbenese are sailors and traders.
Juan Cebreros (1 year ago)
Once the show or book series is over it'd be cool to get a series that follows the descendent of one of the survivors who's becomes an explorer.
Aerion Brightflame (1 year ago)
I feel like after the tv show ends they could make movies about certain time periods or people. Like the Blackfyre Rebellion of Aegons Conquest or Corlys Velaryon.
KhukuriGod (1 year ago)
The world of ASOIAF should be a multi-generational project. GRRM better leave short notes about the universe of ASOIAF so that one day, a bunch of writers can continue the legacy and finally complete the map GRRM has given us.
The_Borg (1 year ago)
If even one of those myths was true it wouldn't be worth it to travel that far north.
Corlys Velaryon (1 year ago)
Actually, almost all of it is true to at least some degree, if not completely. Also, CivEx explicitly states that the SW of the Shivering Sea in particular has the richest fishing grounds of the Known World (analogous to Earth). Along with trade & banking, fishing is one of the three pillars of the Braavosi economy (arguably the richest city in the world) & their fleets control a vast amount of the best fishing grounds. There's also plenty of mining to be had in places like the Hills of Norvos, the Axe, Morosh, Ifequevron, & Ib. Wood from the Forest of Qohor & the Kingdom of the Ifequevron. Even with the fall of the Kingdom of Sarnor during the Century of Blood, there's still plenty of trade from White Harbor in the east & Ibben in the east - it's past there that it's not really worth travelling for most.

3:10 Dwarves?
Elias Wewel (2 months ago)
At 3:12 he said small eyes, and later just as itelligens as mailand humans. Homo Neanderthalensis hade signicantly larger eyes and vetter night vision than Homo Sapiens, but less intelligence do to so much brain capacity beeing dedicated to it's vision. So it's not true Neanderthalers, probably dwarves, their favorite weapons är axes after all. Also, they have problems reproducing with humans, that was not an isue for neanderthals, one of the Main Tessins they got extinct was beacuse they got outbreed by Homo Sapiens
austeja druteikaite (7 months ago)
Maybe neardantaleans or dwarves
neanderthals I fear

hey, here's a suggestion: mind doing a video on the sunset sea?
CivilizationEx (1 year ago)
+TheJackFroster I have a series called Theories of Ice and Fire where I go over a lot of stuff, and cover 5 forts theories in the Yi Ti video, but the Oily Black Stone I do want to cover at some point. However I don't like to interject my personal theories because I want the videos to be as factual as possible and something that you can watch later even after theories have been proven or debunked by the show or novels.
TheJackFroster (1 year ago)
Have you considered making videos of you giving some of your theory's or personal takes on things such as the oily black stones found throughout the world, or why the 5 Forts exist?
Veljko Bogdanovic (1 year ago)

Hey what's you opinion of the idea that the lands of always winter wrap around to the lands east of ashai as 1 continent
StealthyTNT (1 year ago)
Are there summers at the Earth's poles? I think not- it's just cold and slightly less cold.
TrueNordic (1 year ago)
I dont believe it would be winter all around that continent, the climates wouldn't allow it
CivilizationEx (1 year ago)
I like that idea a lot, it would make sense with what we know about the Long Night

Disappointed Turtle (1 year ago)
What do you guys think of the theory that the Ibbenese are actually neanderthals?
Aldozzy (2 months ago)
The Ibbenese aren't neandethals, they can't breed with men from other lands, which means they are to humans like a donkey is to a horse. Their off spring are either stillborn or steril. Doesn't mean they aren't based on prehistoric humans though, but I think they are still different from Neanderthals.
Miyazaki (3 months ago)
In the H. P. Lovecraft work "The Doom of Sarnath" the city of Ib is mentioned with strange almost fish like people, just for anyones information. Its a good read too if anyone's interested, George Martin's a fan of his too and you can see that in his world building.
Creepy Closet (8 months ago)
Simon Bourdin yeah its neat how in the world it isnt just the human race that exists. The ibbenese being Neanderthals but I wonder what the green skinned thousand islanders are
Disappointed Turtle i agree!!!
+Simon Bourdin The people of the Thousand Islands worship Fish Headed Gods, a possible reference to the Old Ones.
