The Greatest Dark Fantasy Series of All Time

The Greatest Dark Fantasy Series of All Time
The Game of Thrones - Armor Set is the perfect gift for die-hard fans of the GOT TV series, new fans brought on by the highly anticipated House of the Dragon prequel, fans of the intricately plotted source material, or any other fantasy geek who wants to take the leap into Westeros for the first time.

Designed with leather-look jackets emulating the leather-bound tomes of the Citadel and the hide shirts like the one Jon Snow wears into battle, this set would look to be right at home in the chambers of the Red Keep.  

“If you think this has a happy ending, you haven't been paying attention,” -Ramsay Bolton, Game of Thrones 

Just when we thought there couldn’t be a more despicable character than Joffrey Baratheon, we meet Ramsay. Though his nature as a two-faced sadist makes him less than trustworthy, his prediction is right. No quote better encapsulates the grim, dark world of events in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series. The bad guys often win, the good often die, and there seems to be no natural justice in the world of Westeros.

These circumstances pull us in all the more deeply, as we genuinely have no idea if our favorite character will prevail against all odds or if the villains will ever get what they deserve. And we want more than anything to find out—to have that closure. David Benioff and D.B. Weiss tried to give us that special kind of dissatisfied satisfaction with their ending to the series, and well, we know it wasn’t well received.

Yet, to truly give credit where it's due, the show took its rightful place night to Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings as an incredible accomplishment in storytelling, practical effects, and visual effects, not to mention the talented hidden-gem actors who launched their careers from Westeros. The Battle of Winterfell even unseated the Battle of Pelennor Fields as the longest continuous battle sequence in TV and film. Despite how things ended, the show was still spectacular. No one would have been upset about the ending if there wasn’t a pop culture phenomenon of super-fans who were more connected to the events on screen than any other fiction they consumed before. Some fans even take matters into their own hands with reimagined endings.

We never thought the series would end the way we wanted because we knew that Ramsay was right, but we love twist endings that we can recognize signs of from the start upon a second watch-through. Where D&D, failed, GRRM delivers. But I won’t spoil it - you must start that quest yourself.
