  1. Small Questions v. 10105

    What the hell was Catelyn thinking when she suggested Jason Mallister as an envoy for Balon Greyjoy?
  2. If Aegon, Jon Connington and the Golden Company were to invade Westeros during a time of peace under the regime of a popular Baratheon king (likely either Robert or Renly), would the Targaryen name ultimately mean all that much? Could we expect houses that have been notoriously loyal to the Targaryen's over their near three centuries in power (namely House Tyrell, House Martell and several noble houses in the Riverlands) to join the Golden Company? Assume Daenerys remained in Slavers Bay instead of backing Aegon.

    What exactly was Tyrion doing with himself in the months leading up to the royal family visiting Winterfell? Was he living in Casterly Rock or Kings Landing?
  4. Small Questions v. 10105

    Do we have a rough estimation of how many members there are in the Brotherhood without banners currently and/or at their peak?
  5. "Moral ambiguity" is overrated and overestimated

    Well, for example, I wouldn't absolve Jaime Lannister or Theon Greyjoy of their worst crimes (Jaime pushing Bran out the window, Theon killing the millers boys). They absolutely deserved to be punished. With that said, I can absolutely understand why they felt they had to do the things they did in their own minds. Again, that doesn't absolve them of their actions, and as I said they did deserve a harsh penalty for it, but I can empathise with their respective situations. Sometimes inherently decent people do terrible shit, but painting Theon or Jaime with the same brush as Gregor Clegane or Ramsay Snow is pretty ridiculous.

    Probably. Could you list examples similar to the scenario I posed to back this up?
  7. Small Questions v. 10105

    If Sweet Robert died and Harry the heir became Lord of the Eyrie is it likely he would keep the last name Hardyng or would he become Lord Harrold Arryn?
  8. Small Questions v. 10105

    I did prior to asking my initial question and it doesn't directly answer it.
  9. Small Questions v. 10105

    Sure, but to someone ignorant of Southern Westeros, other than a sigil and simple geography, would there be any discernible difference between a Stony Dornishman and someone born in say the Reach or the Stormlands?
  10. "Moral ambiguity" is overrated and overestimated

    Robb Stark is evil. He sent thousands of people to their deaths, and I don't care what his reasons were.
  11. Small Questions v. 10105

    Are any of the the Stony Dornish houses (namely House Yronwood and House Dayne) noted to have any Rhoynish influence in their accent, or is there virtually no discernible difference between the Stony Dornishmen and the other Southern regions?
  12. Small Questions v. 10105

    Fair enough. I just don't like the idea that George would write one of his characters to kill his own son because "he's not eviiiiiiiiiil enough. Muahahahahahahaha." Doesn't seem like GRRM.
  13. Small Questions v. 10105

    Or it could have been he just died. Or worse...Roose had him killed because he didn't have enough Bolton-ness to him. I don't think so, mainly because it paints Roose in a very black and white light.
  14. Small Questions v. 10105

    Who specifically holds custody over wards/hostages in Kings Landing? There are a few examples throughout the books, namely Sansa Stark and Hoster Blackwood. Are they specifically looked after and cared for by the royal family in the Red Keep?
