Let us start a new post for further reports from the moot bound to drip in over the weekend. To begin with, the commenter, fan, and lucky attendant of the Thursday event Martin published a gallery of photos. The quality of them is great, with good lighting and many precious moments captured. He promises to add comments to all of them over the course of the day, so stay tuned. Three pics to whet your GOT appetite this morning:
The royal brothers, Robert (Mark Addy) and Renly (Gethin Anthony) Baratheon
George R.R. Martin in his element
John Bradley-West (Sam Tarly) and Finn Jones (Loras Tyrell) talking to George
Hear Me Roar: I selected a few I like best, including Martin’s personal favourite of Robert and Renly. Hard to choose though, as there are many more great ones among the bunch, and you really should take your time to browse through all of them, spot the familiar faces of the cast, crew, extras, and ardent fans that are becoming known to the community in their own right. I am sure many of these photos will make it into the personal albums of those who are featured on them. Thank you, Martin!

UPDATE: DrNickVC linked to some more uploaded photos over at Westeros forums.
UPDATE 2: For those who don’t know yet, two videos from the moot have been uploaded to serMountainGoat’s YouTube channel. Moving pictures! And pretty good sound, too. Oh, just noticed that serMG in fact tried to post a comment which got blocked by the mean spam filter goblins. Read below, he provides new photos and some really great resources for anyone who was in Belfast or wishes they had been there:
While the loss of the banners is a slap in the face let’s try and remember that we did have a very good night at the Moot, made some good new friends and met some of the cast members who are all incredible.
I have only 24 photos but they are now uploaded to my photo gallery.
The raffle was a big success and you can use the following links to review the prizes that were on offer, find out who won prizes, what they chose and watch the full video of the drawing which is now available on YouTube:
After the raffle we had two boarders step up and sing a couple of folk songs composed specially for the occasion. Check out this YouTube video of lilsisorcha’s raw and passionate song ‘The Last of the Giants’. I also have video of Ser Mel T’s song ‘Off to the Wall’ but she told me in no uncertain terms that she would kill me if I posted it. However she was drunk when she made the threat so I may eventually be able to share it with everyone without fear of having my balls cut off, so keep your fingers crossed on that score.
I have also uploaded a text file with the full guestlist including cast and crew who were present, all BWB members, Extras and Others.
Hopefully a proper detailed report will be ready by tomorrow.
UPDATE 3.5: Jackie blogs about het moot experience here, and Ran has written part two of his report. Here is also Ran’s report from the moot itself. We’ll post about the juicy bits, i.e. his set visit separately once Ran puts it online.
UPDATE 4: Rimshot’s friend and GoT extra Diarmuid M. has sent me his pics from the moot. They include some hilarious photos that Diarmuid calls “Presentation Pictures.” I’ll let Rimshot explain what they are:
He describes Presentation pictures as ‘those pictures you would see in the early part of the twentieth century where someone important was presenting something like a trophy, medal or prize to the lucky recipient. But the main thing about these photos was that NO ONE EVER SMILED. They always looked really serious. So Dairmuid’s ambition is to get as many of these types of photos as possible. So he did, with the cast of ‘Game Of Thrones’!
