  1. That will give the north the independence they crave but they have to pay the price. That frozen waste land will have little value to the south.
  2. Robb himself was out of sync with his team. He married Jeyne and insulted the Freys. Edmure was out of sync. He screwed up their battle plans.
  3. Too bad the original topic was closed. I appreciate all of the thoughtful replies. Here is a link to the original discussion. Please feel free to continue commenting.
  4. Agreed!
  5. Both died from blood poisoning. Gregor from Oberyn's poison. Drogo from infection. It is not yet clear if Drogo just got infected on his own or Mirri helped it along with her treatment. Oberyn, though no one says it, is as close to a sorcerer as you can get. How much different was he actually from Mirri? Gregor has kept many of his functions. His physical skills are still there and he was never smart to start with. Drogo lost his brain functions altogether. Similar case but I don't think identical. Drogo would still need constant care. Feeding. He had no feelings left. Gregor has more functions than Drogo.
  6. Rhaegar gave in to the feelings in his loins instead of deciding for the benefit of the kingdom. I don't believe he would have made a good king. He was remembered fondly but there was no excuse to humiliate his wife at Harrenhal like that. A grown man with wife and children should not chase after another man's betrothed to satisfy his heart. He may handle some things better than Robert but other matters not so much. Robert had more women but Rhaegar had one outside of marriage. Neither men are all that admirable if you think about it. Rhaegar's feelings for Lyanna got a lot of people killed for no better reason than they wanted to be together.
  7. Good points from both of you. I will add a few more requirement to this list. Arya Stark will reside at The Twins and will marry the man that Lord Walder chooses for her. She will function in the same capacity as Theon Greyjoy did for the Starks. Hostage. (cough, cough, I meant ward) Rickon Stark will marry little Cersei Frey. The big shadow over any agreement is Robb himself. He's a proven liar and anything he says cannot be relied upon. I would ask for everything in advance.
  8. I feel like that the termination of Jon Snow by Bowen Marsh was appropriate. The Lord Commander served for life so the only way to remove a crazy leader like Jon from power is to kill him. That is their way of firing an unfit, incompetent, treasonous commander. It's been said before but I will repeat it here. Ramsay Bolton gave Jon the Pink Letter. Bowen Marsh gave Jon the Pink Slip. Jon was already a known deserter. He started making foolish decisions near the end. The Hardhome mission was dumb and only wastes resources. The execution of Janos Slynt became unjust when Jon spared Mance Rayder, a man who has committed more crimes against the Watch and against the kingdom than Slynt has done. Mormont showed mercy to Jon for desertion. Jon could have shown mercy to Janos Slynt's initial insubordination. Sending Mance and the spearwives to rescue his sister, or what he thought was his sister, is an attack on a noble house of the realm. Jon's agents murdered Bolton servants while enjoying Bolton hospitality and shelter. This is little different from what the crows did to Craster and his family. Jon's announced plans to attack the Boltons is the last straw for any honest man of the Watch. It violated the oaths of the watch and Jon knew it. Instead of helping unite the north, Jon's actions made unity less likely to happen. To sum up, I support Bowen Marsh and his decision to end Jon's appointment.
  9. Westeros History. They do episodes for show watchers. They do shows for book readers. I watch the spoiler full episodes for the book readers. Aziz keeps his discussions grounded and he doesn't get into outrageous flights of the imagination.
  10. IIRC, Walder already sent his hunters to look for the wolf pack. I would use baited traps to thin out the pack.
  11. Dear Lothar, Forget the terms. I want to make a deal to rid ourselves of the Starks. I propose we support Roose for the time being. New information came to me. Bran and Rickon are still alive. I will send my trackers to find them and kill them for you. In turn, I want friend status between my house and yours. All good marked with the sigil of houses Dustin and Ryswell gets to cross your bridge without toll. Lady Barbrey Dustin
  12. Theon needs no redemption. He was a Stark hostage and he was right to take Winterfell from them. He could really perform a valuable service to the night watch by putting an arrow through Ghost's heart to keep Jon from having any chance of coming back.
