  1. Nothing mad about it, I'd do the same if I were Dany. Treason and rebellion should never go unpunished and she would set a bad precedent if she let the people who deposed House Targaryen and murdered her family go free. House Baratheon should be stripped of all lands, titles and banished from Westeros for life for the crime of rebelling. House Lannister should be removed from power for the sack of Kings Landing and murder of King Aerys, Princes Elia, Rhaenys and Prince Aegon. Casterly Rock should be given to more loyal subjects of the throne or better yet just keep it within House Targaryen, Dany can give it to one of her children if she does have any. I will be a little leaner on House Stark because I believe Rickard was killed unjustly but I have no qualms about the execution of hot-head Brandon who stormed into the Red Keep and threatened to murder the heir to the Iron Throne and Prince of Dragonstone with a bunch of his thugs. Jon Arryn is dead else he would've been executed too for treason. House Tyrell should be rewarded with Storms-end because they stayed loyal and true to the Iron Throne till the bitter end. After this is done Dany should make sure her dragons breed so that her future heirs can be secured and ready to bring the fury of the dragon on all who plot rebellion or treason. No one will think of rebelling for another century.
  2. Both would probably have been killed, C'mon guys this is the person who said "I will kill every Targaryen I can get my hands on" (I'm not entirely sure if this scene happened in the books, its hard to discern sometimes)
  3. I don't really have much of an opinion about this since I don't consider Robert to be the legitimate King and believe that Viserys/Dany have a better claim/right solidified by 300 years of rule. However, speaking from the point of view of Robert, it's definitely better for his rule, claim and his successors to have Dany killed, so to him it would be right to kill Dany.
  4. Renly would win, he was very charismatic and people were naturally inclined to him. On the other hand I see no way in hell Stannis would win.
  5. You're not her fangirl.
  6. Dialogue is not only awkward but plain terrible, it's like Sanderson did not improve but actually regressed, I can't stand Shallan's chapters at all, it's because of the incredibly bad way she's written that she's my least favourite character. The way I see with Sanderson is he's desperately trying to put good humor in his books and failing spectacularly at it. Dialogue is the weakest aspect of Oathbringer, the author has a poor command of the English language, just try comparing GRRM's dialogue with Sanderson’s and Sanderson’s would feel childish in comparison. I'm really concerned because I thought he would continue to improve but sadly that hasn't happened yet, he's still in the class of what I call 'average' authors. I was hoping he would crack it to the level of the top dogs where people like GRRM and Tolkien are, but unfortunately I don't see that happening soon. With that said, in the class of average authors, Sanderson is definitely the king.
  7. This is exactly why I had to re-read Words of Radiance before starting Oathbringer. It's definitely the weakest in the series so far, that was a tad disappointing, I did not thimk this would happen to SA since the previous two books were excellent. As to the length, I agree part 1 is mostly filler. There's also a lot of deliberation in the Kholinar scenes it was annoying, he could've written everything in Kholinar arc in half the space he used. 'Nice' is a good description of the ending, nothing exciting though, I'm not even desperate or very eager to read the next book, there's no urge unlike when I finished Words of Radiance or Way of kings. Too much deus ex machina and overpowered characters.
  8. The Hightowers have dabbled in the game of thrones before and suffered greatly for it during and after the dance, that has now made them extremely wary towards participating in the game. As of now I think the Hightowers would be too busy trying to stop the Ironborn to ever bother about Aegon, had the ironborn threat not existed I still think they wouldn't give two figs about Aegon or take part in the war. Assuming they do decide to take part in the war to come, they're going to go for Dany as that's probably their safest option since she has dragons, what would Aegon offer them?
  9. At least Henry IV was a Plantagenet, the crown remained within the same family, so it's not comparable to what Robert did because he wasn't a Targaryen and had zero claim to the Iron throne hence why he's called the usurper.
  10. Very big plot hole you bring up here which I had frankly never thought of before, good job OP. Also why would any merchant risk trading in the free cities if there's like 50/50 chance of his ship never getting there? Perhaps the chances are even lower than that. The ironborn whom are perhaps the best sailors in planetos lose a lot of ships travelling to Slavers bay, Tyrion's ship also sinks, seems risky as hell, yet despite all this, these cities are all presented as thriving trading environments. Given how dangerous sea travel is there should at least be a secure and stable road connecting slavers bay with the free cities for this to make sense.
  11. That depends, to the readers? Probably Stannis since we as readers have the benefit of knowing that Robert's children by Cersei are bastards and after them obviously the next person in line is Stannis. To most people in Westeros? Joffrey. They couldn't know that he wasn't Robert's son for sure, no DNA test available and everyone rightfully assumes that he is Robert's trueborn son, so that makes Joffrey the rightful king in their eyes.
  12. I completely agree, it's extremely weird that any Targaryen wouldn't have a dragon, I assume that would be the number one priority for any Targ kid, a lot of people try to bring up the story of Vaegon the dragonless to claim that this is proof that not all Targaryens had the magical ability to ride dragons kinda like squibs in Harry Potter, this is a ridiculous idea IMO I think every Targaryen could ride dragons if they wanted, so the story of Vaegon the dragonless is completely non-sensical except if maybe he just decided he doesn't want to have any dragon which would be queer but possible.
  13. I have no idea what you guys are talking about, what happened with Gendry and Arya in the Stoney Sept? Spot on.
  14. The dornish master plan? Could you expatiate?
  15. In the 21st century yeah, but in midieval times? I'm not so sure. Point taken, but you say people complain, they only do it in their minds then, what i meant was complaining to the king or trying to bring up a grievance against him or something. No one would do that, even if he wasn't king, even if he was a peasant, I don't think people in the middle ages recognised rape if it was between husband and wife. Are you suggesting that the iron bank would have the monarch of Westeros killed because they refused to honour the debts of a usurper? And what would that achieve? And if they risk carying out such reckless move and someone finds out they'll be in big trouble. Imagine a scenerio whereby Dany refuses to pay the debt, the iron bank secretly sends an assassin to kill her and somehow unfortunately the plot succeeds but is botched and people find out about it? I imagine the next king her son and heir declaring war against bravos and God help them if he isin't a dragon rider or he would burn the titan to ashes or at least bring it to its knees.
