I mean it would be pretty hard to find someone with the special feature of rorge as an actor.

here´ s a pic of all three:

i dont know, he could it be or he could be under the cloak

anyways: Valar Morghulis
It's 100% Rorge. He is described in the book as basically not having a nose, hence the disfigurement.

I remember that scene from the book. Didn't occur to me that it'd end up in the show, but I should have guessed. From the sound of it, he'd need a whole baguette to cover it up...

"well atleast the book is interesting on ALL other fronts

literally every other character has some serious shit going on
i'm breaking some kind of records reading this book lol, havent stop reading in hours, god knows when was the last time i saw a movie or played a game.. "

it was the same way for me. i've read books really quickly before but not regularly. i'd say it usually takes me a couple weeks to finish a book but with the whole song of ice and fire series i was finishing each of the books in a few days.

This forum doesn't have spoiler tags. It has a not very good workaround:

Quote:
It is not hard to highlight and read text and that makes it very easy for those who want to avoid spoilers to do.
Here's what the forum looks like on iPhone/iPad (or any mobile device, really):



I have a netbook set on this theme as well.

Here's what Sherdog looks like on my main machine (for a number of reasons, black text on white is superior):



As you yourself brought up, the mere mention of a character's name being alive in Book X is something of a minor spoiler. It gets to a point that you can't discuss anything without spoilering it for someone.

Spoilers should always be tagged. If you decide to read the thread on a different device or with different colors, that's your own issue.

It doesn't matter to me, because I've read the books. There's nothing that can be spoiled for me.

If you want to protect people from spoilers, then workaround spoiler tag doesn't necessarily work for all readers. A real spoiler tag would and isn't that hard to implement on vBulletin.

Someone should make a Thread about it in the Support Forum, i think we could get enough People behind that.

Its not just for Movies,Books etc you could also post Fight endings in the spoiler tag.

Even small Forums are able to do that, why shouldnt such a big Forum like SD that probably earns a lot not do this.
