AKA “The Ice Dragon” – Amin’s favourite new TGT card
Bastards of Kingsgrave returns with the third episode in our Hearthstone series. We discuss many of the revealed cards for the upcoming Grand Tournament expansion. We chat about our favourite classes and play styles, including which gold heroes we have or are close to achieving.
Notes: We assume everyone listening this time is familiar with the game, if you are not, check out our first two episode (the first introduces the game and the second covers arena drafting and strategy). The draft of the “paladin dragon” arena deck did not make it into the aftershow; the deck went 3-0 before we sopped playing to recording the main show.

Ashley returns once again for our review of Anime North 2015, held in Toronto, Canada. We cover our experiences at the convention, taking part as panelists (including for Game of Thrones, Madoka Magica, the Legend of Korra) and staying at the International Plaza Hotel. We cover the good and bad of the convention, while already planning our attendance and panels for next year.
Notes: We recorded a few audio clips (lower quality audio) at the convention itself each night, which are added to the end of this podcast after the end music . The convention itself marked the three year anniversary of the founding of the Bastards of Kingsgrave podcast!

Notes: All discussions are spoiler filled, as usual. Sorry for the audio quality, which is quite low this episode.

The Bastards of Kingsgrave are the illegitimate, off-topic offspring of House Manwoody. We cover anime, manga, and Western animation, as well as a variety of pop culture topics. We've been dubbed the "intersection between A Song of Ice and Fire and everything else." We are also the only podcast currently doing a reread of George RR Martin's earlier works.
