SURVIVOR POOL

SEASON EIGHT

Some quick background info

For Season 8 you will select the [5] characters you believe stand the best chance of surviving the series finale.


To make it a challenge we narrowed it to a pool of 35 characters who will primarily be on the front lines, or facing the dangers of court (so no one will be nabbing Hot Pie, Daario, Little Sam, or the freshly widowed Melessa Tarly). And, if you like the Night King so much here he is! Pick him if you dare.


These are all characters last known to be alive on the show and exercising some level of autonomy. If you pick one and we end up never hearing from them again in all of season 8, then congratulations, you guessed correctly.


For the record, alive is loosely defined here since one of our characters is an ice demon who commands an undead host, and another is a Frankenstein's monster of a man. We're currently betting on the status of these two only being able to go further down hill from where they're currently at – The Night King exploding into icy CGI like past White Walkers, and Gregor turning into some kind of meaty pile of flesh and armor that’s possibly burning.


If at any point it gets weird and something unforseen happens we'll do our best to make the fairest judgment call possible.


In terms of resurrection we're keeping it simple even if it violates canon:


If a character comes back via Night King ice magic as a wight then they're dead.


If a character comes back through R'hollr fire magic and they're still themselves (ex: Jon & Beric) then they're fine and they count as being alive.


Again, if something crazy and new happens... we'll have to get back you.


Just like for Season 7 we'll be organizing participants into divisions. Season 7 had 78 participants - 6 divisions of 13. Right now we'll look to cap the final season at 105 participants (which ideally translates to 7 divisions of 15).


As always this is a free event. We will implement a series of tiebreakers to ensure each division only has a single winner.


Prizes for the Seaon 8 Survivor Pool are currently TBD.

Deadlines

Pre-production for Season 8 begins in October. In order to stay ahead of spoilers (as best we possibly can) we'll run our registration through the month of October.


Start Date: October 5th 2017


End Date: November 6th 2017


And after that it is SO OVER!


To register send your picks to jon@libertystreetgeek.net. Also, if you want to amend your GoT themed title, or if you're new and have one in mind feel free to pass it along.

Next, tell us the fate of the Iron Throne

This will be used as our Primary Tiebreaker.


Unlike the survivor pool you can pick anyone, but we'd suggest you be as logical as possible to increase your odds if. So you can say "Jon/Aegon", or "Hot Pie" if you're bananas, or "The Night King" if you're committed to the fall of mankind.


You're also not limited to characters. You can submit answers like "Nobody" or "It's Destroyed" for example. Just be clear and boil it down to a couple words, don't send an essay on the end of feudalism and the loss of magic and the shift towards city dwelling and the end of an agrarian lifestyle blah blah blah... You're all going to do that now as a troll, aren't you?


There will be other technical tie breakers in place, but for the final season we figured we'd install a fun one to up the ante just a little more.

So, if you want to play...

If you've got the nerve, submit your [5] character picks and your throne pick to jon@libertystreetgeek.net


We know we've accepted picks in the past via social media, but we want to avoid it this year. Given the length of time set to elapse between when we take in the picks and when the season airs people inevitably forget their selections. Email gives us an easier paper trail to work back from when someone asks "Are those really my picks?"


But I (Ser Jon of House Butters) will be on the social media and happy to answer any questions as they arise.


Cheers!
