Same as Ice Palace: Grim Up North get usage counts

Grim Up North and Ice Palace both have (differently sized) pics of the Lich King's Citadel. Here's a suggestion for Grim Up North:

Looks good to me.

Thats a good image for it... I would of said the Bear calvery but thats already up on, Everything's Worse With Bears :(

Put the bigger Lich King citadel pic on the Ice Palace page IMO.
:(
Looks good to me too.
First key to interpreting a work: Things mean things.
And where is The Dark Lord in this image? Or the forces of evil? The only dangourus looking beeings are normal looking animals.

Despite the description, I don't think Dark Lords are integral to the trope. If they are, point me to the trope page for grim, snowy norths in general.
:(
[up][up]Is that part of the trope? It's only really in the first paragraph of the description, and hardly any of the examples.

Edit: Ninja'd.

The Dark Lord is mentioned in the first paragraph, undead creatures in the second. The rest of the description is not focused of describing the trope, it tells us about the reasons why people assiociate the north with this trope.

So it is not simply about the grim cold north, it is about the grim cold north being the home of evil creatures. The lack of a general grim cold north trope is no reasen to put up a page image which doesn't display the trope.

Motion to pull

At the very least, we should take this pic down from this page since it's still a duplicate with Ice Palace.

Any further thoughts?

Skyrim pics looks good, though maybe an in game screen shot might work better.

Skyrim's a good source, but we need less Up North and more Grim. Show at least one character facing more towards the camera so we can see their nordic armaments.

I think the pointy helmet says Nordic. And the bear and the dead mammoth says "Grim".
How about The Wall from Game Of Thrones/ASoIaF? Here.

That's a mammoth?

[up][up]While I love A Song of Ice and Fire, and The Wall is my favorite of the (many) Plot Threads, that picture isn't very indicative, unfortunately. I'm good with the earlier suggestion.
And if I claim to be a wise man, well, it surely means that I don't know.
Tired forever.
The Skyrim image works brilliantly.
What is this "sleep" you speak of?

Bump...any other thoughts? I can't look at the suggestions right now.

Still pro-Skyrim.

Support pull, and support Skyrim image (at least until we find something even more evil-looking)

The Skyrim pic works well enough for me.

Clock's up, and since the Skyrim pic has some consensus, let's go with that. It's up, potholed, and tagged, and I used the OP caption. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
