Arnold Schwarzenegger is a man who has reached iconic status throughout the world. His films whether good, bad, or ugly have made him an actor with multiple generations of fans. Many people know his film personas, but a number of Arnold's fans may not know some of the little things that went into making him the man he is today. Here are 5 of the more interesting facts.
Gregor Clegane is a man of many names. Called The Mountain That Rides, as well as Tywin Lannister's Mad Dog, he is one of the most dangerous warriors in Westeros. Freakishly big and inhumanly strong, Ser Gregor has murdered countless men in combat, as well as untold numbers of women, children, and civilians simply because he felt like it. The mailed fist of the Lannisters, the elder Clegane is a force to be reckoned with. For those who want to recreate the brutal might of this monstrous villain, this guide should help you build this hard-hitting black knight in all his infamy.
Every guy out there wants to learn how to fight. It's why we shell out huge amounts of cash for martial arts lessons, read up on combat strategies from around the world, and watch professionals in the ring. What we're hoping is that we'll learn the secret that'll turn us into a Hollywood-style action star. The unfortunate reality of fights that take place off the silver screen, though, is that 9 times out of 10 they go to the ground. So it doesn't really matter if you've mastered the spinning butteryfly scissor kick if you have no ground game. Fortunately, grappling is just another martial art, and one of the simplest holds you can put an opponent in is called the Guillotine. Sounds fearsome huh? Well, it's also relatively simple to do.
Lord Varys is one of most feared men in Westeros, not because of his raw physical might or political power, but because he is one of the greatest spymasters in the kingdom. His little birds sing, and as a result he knows what happens in the far off wastes of the world just as he knows what happens in the bowels of the supposedly impregnable Red Keep. While no one trusts the treacherous eunuch, Varys might be one of the only characters in A Song of Ice and Fire who is legitimately concerned for the well-being of the kingdom, in addition to saving his own skin from being threshed by the blades of the Iron Throne. This guide should offer a solid starting point for those interested in bringing the spymaster to their Pathfinder game.
There is not a movie fan in existence that doesn't know the name Sylvester Stallone. Best known for his portrayal of boxing lug turned superstar Rocky Balboa, as well as the original shell shocked special forces soldier John Rambo, Stallone is an icon. While his career is experiencing something of a rebirth after his action movie extravaganzas The Expendables and its sequels, there's always been more to Stallone than meets the eye.
A Song of Ice and Fire is dark, and full of terrors. While everyone knows the Red Woman Meilsandre, the other priest of the Lord of Light often gets overlooked (despite accomplishing feats that make the red witch go pale). Thoros of Myr, who was little more than a roaring drunk who fought with swords that he set aflame, re-discovered his faith while saying rites over a fallen comrade. Now re-dedicated to the church, the sheer power of the god R'hllor flows through him, and allows him to accomplish truly awe-inspiring feats.
