  1. I totally agree with you. Stannis and Robb should have supported Renly. They could have crushed the Lannisters and made a new government.
  2. Waive the last two items? You are either a poor legal advisor (really poor) or you are only posing as one. This wolf and Stoneheart are not Stark's problems. Lady Stoneheart was born not once, but twice in the Riverlands, and this wolf has never been confirmed as to been belonging to the Starks. Cousin! How fairs your brood? As to you Freys, I concur with my cousin. Once we have the strenths, we will destroy you, piece by piece, until the name Frey is erased from the Riverlands for good. Hope you die, Lord of Raventree Hall
  3. Actually this is true. How tall is Tyrion suppossed to be? What sort of dwarfism does he have? He has to be the most badass dwarf of all time. He kills full grown, fully trained men with ease.
  4. Exactly! Tywin is the worst. What makes him worth than sociopaths like Euron or Ramsay is he has managed to convince everyone his ways are acceptable. He is an evil sick tyrant. I agree. Let's not also forget that Tyrion raped a slave before Jorah Mormont grabbed him in ADwD. And he murdered Shae despite her not attacking him. Anyways, I am so glad to see everyone hating on Tywin. He is a well written character, but he is despicable. He gave Walder Frey the go ahead to murder people at a wedding, he murdered people in a castle (many of which were guiltless), his attack strategy in the Riverlands may be the worst of all (raping and murdering peasants is disgustingly awful), and he treated Tyrion horribly. He is awful. He has absolutely no concious. Anyways, feels good to hate on that ****er.
  5. Garlan Tyrell - Loras gets all the credit cause he is extroverted. Garlan played Renly and basically won the Blackwater. the Dothraki - Just period, they are unarmored warriors that are taking out cities with armored soldiers. They are insanely overpowered. I would guess that GRRM based them on the Mongols, but Mongols used armor and the best military technology available to them at the time. Granted also the Mongols were vastly outnumbered the majority of the time, and the dothraki the opposit way, but I still think to go into battle bare chested ans win basically makes them all like borderline perfect warriors
  6. Honestly; it was a great plan. Littlefinger just beat them to the punch. Tywin would be a fool to break the alliance with the Reach. Honestly, if Mace was more competant or Willas hadn't have been crippled, Willas could have probably made his own attempt at the crown, or some sort of alliance where Robb Stark and him could split up the land. The Reach is obviously the most powerful Kingdom further booyed by the fact that Renly died, and the Westerlands are severely weakened by Robb Stark and Stannis. If the Reach had a capable lord, they may have been able to win many of the lords that turned to Stannis to their side and have been able to smash Stannis in a temporary alliance with the Westerlands, before smashing the Westerlands in a temporary alliance with the North. They could have easily used the other lords to help eliminate each of their opponents before basically being the only army left in the South. Robb Stark could have the Riverlands and the North, they could take the rest without much of a fight after Stannis and Tywin were defeated. The Stormlords were desperate for someone to follow after Renly died (and they didn't like Stannis) Dorne and the Vale didn't appear to be ready to fight them. A few well placed marriages could have won them both areas without a fight. Willas needs a wife; and Arriane was still available, if he was healthy, why wouldnt Doran agree to the match. They would still have the Iron Islands to deal with but if Robb and Willas are allied, they could have presented a united front against them. Anyways, I rambled, sorry.
  7. I guess I think Renly's plans to have Margerry marry Robert and put Cersei aside only makes sense if Joffrey, Tommen, and Myrcella are not his children. How could you get rid of Cersei if there was not some major reason to do so. I think that it is far from crystal clear. Renly liked to mess with others, and was rarely serious. He doesn't really care either way, but it is far from benificial for him if Stannis is heir rather than Joffrey. I guess I think Renly is rather deeper than most people seem to think. He certainly had a better political plan than Stannis or Eddard. (Using magic to murder your brother is far from military genius; and although I know we can never know, I think Renly would have crushed Stannis if a battle had actually taken place. Also, unlike Robb or Eddard or Stannis, he made the right connections to ensure he could win. I guess I just think people give him too little credit. He was no fool. Yes, we do. I think Stannis is glorified by the fan base far too much, same as Tyrion or Arya, and I think for that reason they ignore his faults. He murdered his brother and he would have murdered his nephew if Davos had not interfered. I do not dislike Stannis, but I think he is a much darker character than his fan base seems to think. He is no Eddard Stark, honerable to a fault.
  8. He knew, sorry but I know he knew based on things he said in the first book. So they were not his nieces or nephews. And everyone should have wanted to kill Joffrey. Wanting to kill Joffrey makes you a good person in my mind. He wouldn't have killed Tommen or Myrcella I think. Stannis had agreed to the plan. Did you read the same books as me? Te only reason that is Edric is alive is named Davos. He shipped him away just in time.
  9. Who did he plan to kill? I really don't remember this. And didn't he take care of Edric Storm, his nephew. AND Stannis planned to kill his nephew....
  10. You think Robert would have been a better Uncle than Renly? I am confused.
  11. You misunderstood me. Perhaps I was not clear enough. For that, I apologize. I did not mean there is no such thing as good and evil in the world. I didn't even mean there is no such thing as evil people. I even stated at one point "besides sociopaths" I think. Clarifying that I think sociopaths are evil. I also think there are both selfless acts and evil acts. However, I think MOST of the time the world exists in shades of gray, while Hollywood usuallys shows it as black and white. That is why I like ASOIAF and anime. They exist in a gray world, which I think is closest to reality. If you still fight me after this, I am going to assume you are just trolling me. If you are having a hard time in your life, take it out on someone else.
  12. I doubt very much that GRRM seperates along gender lines when deciding something like this. There is a reason Daenerys is a PoV and the other kings are not.
  13. We seem to be in the minority, but I agree with you. I would have liked to know more about what he was thinking about in both the first and second book. I think Davos basically covers Stannis well, and Robert would have added nothing to the book, but Renly could have been interesting.
  14. 1. Catelyn Tully - She continued to fight despite losing her family members one by one. She kept her head up tell the very end. I would have lost it well before she did. 2. Tormund Giantsbane - Now hear me out. He leads his people into unknown waters. He chooses to trust Jon Snow, but also making a deal with your enemy that in many ways puts you subservient to them in order to save your people seems extremely brave to me. 3. Daenerys Targaryen - She frees the slaves. She changes her typical role in a society, and she seems to genuinely want to save and protect everyone. Honerable Mention : Jon Snow and Eddard Stark - They very much meet the requirements of an average hero, but asASOIAF is a special series, I wanted to choose special people (not typical).
  15. Those people are sociopaths and I would concede they may be considered evil, however they are exceedingly rare.
