  1. Donal Noye
  2. Right now, i want some icecream... in 2018 i'll start thinking about WOW, i prefer a great book in a couple of years than being sorry for the rest of my life
  3. Sandor is onde of the best prime robert's in the story... Sorry i meant fighters... It's not just swordsmanship in a duel, folks have to think about that, Jaime dayne and barri are the top 3 swords and none of them is a better fighter/warrior than prime Robert, and sandor can dispute a spot in his best day maybe, pretty close to legendary level
  4. As important? maybe not... As or more interesting? Heck yeah
  5. lol that's funny, to be fair there are a ton of british, french, italian, etc historians who know more about the age of discovery than i so... you're not obligated to be an expert in democracy, the olimpics, the iliad... and i do not sweat myself by not knowing every freaking fort from america, africa, asia and oceania my folk build... they went everywhere in a wooden boat i would be afraid to travel in to cross a river... All hail Zeus
  6. Rhaegar managed to injure Robert because it was a horseback duel, and he was a good jouster, that being said it's not "he injured him badly" because robert sent his personal maester to barristan, it wasn´t mortally serious, at least in the canon books... A minor cut is suficient for any person not to be on a horse for a while, everytime the horse galops your cut (small as it can be) will burn, and a trident to KL ride is not a manhattan-new jersey trip... you can list an amount of stuff rhaegar did better but Robert is by far the superior warrior and commander, that's hammered in the books
  7. At least i never heard him say Achilles was a strong inspiration for any character, the iliad sure, but the leader of the myrmidons? not that i've heard of... But, i'm not all ears on grrm everytime so...
  8. You're a myth fangirl? Or a greek? That would be funny
  9. We do agree on a ton of stuff JQC, not a surprise the achilles comparison is just a fan associastion of both tales that i love, grrm never said achilles was a close inspiration for any asoiaf character, Robert if anyone, is based on Edward IV, then some aspects make me remember achilles, yeah like said above other asoiaf warriors have that too because achilles was THE WARRIOR in western literature (i'm portuguese, we have viriatus, our first king henry, albuquerque the mars of the sea, tons of others in the age of discovery, etc) but achilles is the basis for every warrior, even the more famous demigods like hercules who storywise are older but in reality were invented later... Robert just reminds me more of him, not only because of the demigod durrandon blood (because stannis has too, and renly) but because he screams war even more than jaime or barristan, in both feats and human behaviour, sometimes people think achilles is like the benioff travesty brad pitt crap, cool and colected most of the time, THE GUY WAS EMOTION 100% of the iliad
  10. If anyone is a demi-god in asoiaf is a durrandon blooded person...
  11. Robert is the kind of human force of nature that is born one in a century, a tornado of a personality, if you're close to him you better keep him pleased, if not get away and he won´t hunt you forever, tornados fade away with time... To be honest, at that time post sack and lyanna's death news, the news about a possible r+l=j might be enogh for robert´s heart to give up and go on a suicidal war hunt in essos, and instead of jon being in danger of him, he would be of tywin
  12. Heart tree marriages are null to the seven, not even talking about how crap the story would get... Viserys was the targ Heir, a line surpassed (Rhaegar) is a line erased in med europe (unless dany dies as the las true targ and Heir to the targ crowned king) that would be Viserys crowned by rhaella in dragonstone, the "beggar" KING...
  13. Stannis... Yeah i said it
  14. If i had to bet, Arthur would be like edric, purple eyes and sandy hair, of course daynes also have black hair so... Little taller than jaime, probably 6'3, handsome, but not in Rhaegar/Robert/Renly levels
  15. This is all part of why Robert is such an amazing character creation... From child to adult his story is worthy of a separated book, grrm tells us that all were being polite and respectful in harrenhall, the prince was playing harp, lyanna was crying, benjen was playfull, ned and brandon and ashara were talking love... and Robert was drinking himself as a hobby... but then you look past that and think... Ned, Brandon, Benjen, Lyanna and Howland were in the Stark tent, with rickard (and his wife probably alive in wf) having good fun... Rhaegar with the royal family probably (not rhaella maybe), wife, a half loony father, his friend dayne and his sister, etc... But where was Bobby? a young lord paramount with no REAL friends who know him (ned was in the stark fold), stannis was in se with kid renly, his parents were already dead... when the night came to go rest with friends and family at harrenhall what was left? jon arryn most likely, or the forest... behind the drinking games, choice fights, hunts, easy smiles, contagious laughter, and womanizing is a kid who most likely does this so that at night he is too tired to think about family, and just falls asleep hoping he wakes up with the sun shinning already for more of the same... "i laugh, so i don´t cry" what a character man e.g: sandor is imo a dark shadow of robert, a robertish character if he gave up on people, and joff even as a kid saw that i believe, and couple with cersei's genes, he had his "father" as his "dog"
