  1. I'm hoping they survive, Roose mostly, he's the most badass super ordinary guy in the series. I mean everyone describes him as super ordinary except those baller eyes he's got and everyone fears him. If Ramsay survives, which doesn't seem likely, meh. There's plenty of bad people in the world. Keep him on a tight leash and he'll be the North's own Gregor Clegane
  2. Characters who haven't killed anybody yet (As far as we know)

    At least some of Walder Frey's kids/grandkids. I mean come on, there's like a hundred of them. They can't all be killers.
  3. Pick your elite Kingsguard

    Hell yes. Bravo to you Ser, that is the most baller statement I've read since "Edd, fetch me a block." Well done
  4. If you didn't really like AFFC can you come and talk to me?

    AFFC is different from the other books because it has a different pacing and style than the ones before it. All of these books are very character driven, but Feast is different because whereas before all the characters chapters were in some way advancing the plot, Brienne killing Shagwell and burying Nimble Dick was a great scene but it doesn't really get her (or anyone else) farther down the plot. I did enjoy Feast greatly though. I felt like it was nice to see how the people and places of Westeros had weathered through the War of 5 Kings it also sets up what's going on in the less visited parts of the 7K. Though I don't see the point of any Arianne chapters and found the whole Dornish plot line tedious. I did like the Ironborn story though, mostly because I enjoyed its characters more. And welcome to the Forums
  5. Does Littlefinger truly care for Sansa?

    This is pretty much what I've felt as well, possession as opposed to love. Personally I think that Sansa to LF is less expendable than most other people he toys with and his teaching her is because at some point in his plan she will have to operate without him, but he can still use her to his advantage. I think he doesn't want to lose her, but he would get rid of her if it opposed his plans, he might even regret it, but Petyr Baelish is nothing if not practical.
  6. Step 1: hide Jon from everyone Wait until he's older Step 2: "Hey Varys, who's your barber?"
  7. Is this quote from the books?

    Maybe Selyse didn't have a mustache at the time?
  8. Tactical Analysis of Theon Stark's Raid on Andalos

    I really hope Belthasar Bolton had a pink pavilion. But aside from that, this OP doesn't seem to conform to his own rules. You want it to be about the tactical aspect of Theon's raid and have the nerve to threaten others if they bring ethics into the discussion, yet you have done all but discuss the actual raid. Your argument is based almost solely on assumptions and you refute any evidence or perspective that is out of line with your own. For example, instead of raiding Andalos, you say he should have built a series of fortifications along the eastern coastline of the largest kingdom in Westeros because it would be cheaper, how? Building castles along a huge coast, manning them, and maintaining them in the event of an incursion would be way more expensive than a fleet to do some raids. And those ships wouldn't be useless afterwards. It's really only a waste if he does nothing with them, he can use them however he wants. But why even bother with idea of all these new castles, it's not like Argos won? The existing castles and lords did their jobs and stopped him at the Weeping Water with their King. That's not far from the coast and it is not stated that Argos' invasion did too much damage anyway, it might have but we don't know. So what's the point of massive defense projects if the existing defenses completely worked and did what they were supposed to? Argos came to Theon's house and shit on his lawn, so he went to Argos' home and tore up his.

  11. Green or black? (POLL)

    Blacks: For the Rightful Queen, For The Rouge Prince, for The Sea Snake, but most of all For Roddy and the Winter Wolves.
  12. Skahaz is scum

    If there's one ghiscari who's gonna help Dany rule Meereen, it's the Shavepate. He's gross, he's ugly, he's mean, but he gets results. Maybe that dude whose daughter he tortured was innocent, but that kind of shit happens in every regime in the series: Qyburn, brave companions, Boltons, even Mord to an extent. He created the brazen beasts and they were effective, not to mention his advice, while paranoid, was usually based in sound reasoning. I'm not saying he isn't a piece of shit, cuz he is but he's a pretty useful turd to have around.
  13. Horn of joramun speculation

    I don't think that the horn was designed to tear down the wall. After all like the other posters said, that's a dumb idea. It is the horn of Joramun after all, and Joramun was the King beyond the Wall during the reign of the Nights King, when he allied with Brandon the Breaker to defeat him. The Nights King was the 13th LC of the NW, that implies that the wall was already up when Joramun was King. But did Joramun create the horn or find it? I think that's a better question. My idea of it is that the wards in the wall are what break when the horn is blown, I mean it's gotta be loud enough to wake giants from the earth. The Others are Ice creatures, why does a massive wall of ice stop them? Magic duh. Without the wards I suspect that the others won't have too much trouble with the wall.
  14. Where would you travel?

    Carcosa, to meet the 69th Yellow Emporer
  15. How rich are the Lannister's?

    I imagine that as long as the iron bank and the iron throne have been doing business there has been some debt. Probably even during Tywin's prosperous tenure as hand. Debt on such a large scale in economics is not necessarily a bad thing all the time. If you make regular, appropriate payments then whoever is loaning to you will be more inclined to grant you further loans, that's the founding principles of credit. However I imagine that Robert's gross misuse of funds outweighed the payments being made and put the IT in massive debt not just to the Braavosi. But to return to the OP, the Lannisters are probably richer than the gods themselves. I imagine the reason they don't take all the debt is that they themselves have the throne, so it wouldn't gain them anything.
