  1. The Dustin succession crisis that apparently never was

    Eddard owes lady Dustin nothing her husband did his duty and gave his life protecting his liege lord sure he could have sent his body home to Barrowtown as he did his sisters but he didnt and thats that, lady Dustin acts like Eddard slighted her in some way or like lord Dustin was the only man to die that day hell Eddard himself almost lost his life if it wasnt for Reed. He should have married her to Benjen and givin Benjen Barrowtown instead she was able to rule in her own right and she is still bitter....... Of all the characters in asoiaf she is top 5 on my most hated list.
  2. The Dustin succession crisis that apparently never was

    Thank you iv been wondering this exact same thing its illogical to assume the Dustins do not have any blood relatives in the form of cousins or distant cousins, hell Cat Stark was bringing up Robbs very distant cousins in the Vale as possible heirs but yet the Dustins have none??? Its just a plot hole plain and simple to think barrowtown its self dont have any Dustin blood running around it in the form of bastards or cousins etc. Same goes for the Hornwoods if im not mistaken there is even a bastard Hornwood floating around somewhere?
  3. I agree on most of what you said for sure it seems Benjen taking the black cost his family everything at the moment it never made sense for him to take the black anyways considering Ned knew what it really was.......
  4. Also a fact I forgot to mention is benjen would obviously be married with children so WF would have plenty of heirs after Bran and rickon went missing making it impossible for the Boltons to legally claim WF. Also the Manderlys could back Benjen and his children immediately instead of playing the game he is currently.
  5. Basically if Benjen was around would it have helped Robb Stark win the war or at least sue for peace on better terms? I was thinking if Benjen was around he would be second in command not Roose Bolton which would stop the Bolton treason from hapenning maybe even stop Robb from being crowned all together which we all can probably agree was the Worse move of the war.
  6. As many have said the Tyrells can be removed from power rather easily since the Reach vassals loyaltys are very questionable to say the least, only Hightower and Redwyn have strong blood ties and that didnt help when the hightowers constantly stay neutral and the Redwyns arnt gonna risk everything for Mace family or not.
  7. Everything happens as cannon accept Davos doesnt reach Stannis in time and Stormsend and its Garrison all starve to death. Stannis before his own death is forced to put most of his Garrison to the sword for conspiring to open the gates to save themselves. What is Roberts punishment for the Tyrells and do the Tyrells even try and bend the knee after what has happened?
  8. Help Me Become Lord of the Crossing

    An impossible task unless your down with kin slaying which is of course hurting the family and there is no return from the red wedding no other house will ever trust the Freys again and many lords would rather remove there cock with a hot dagger before marrying there daughters into house frey.
  9. Is it possible the Lannisters are almost broke?

    I disagree holding the throne is 10x more important and the Lannisters would still hold the Westerlands broke or not also you have to realise repaying the thrones debt is a LOAN not a gift so there is a win win in keeping the throne and receiving your invest back.
  10. Is it possible the Lannisters are almost broke?

    High lords become low lords all the time in Westeros its not impossible to believe the Lannisters lost most of their wealth I know CR sits on a gold mine but even a huge gold mine eventually runs out over time which CR has had plenty of. Just splurging on appearance of being rich can lead you to the brink of destruction. Catlyn Starks mothers house that held Harrenhal were considered very wealthy where are they now?? Where is this wealth they posseded?.
  11. I know the show and books are completly seperate but I gained even more respect for Tywin Lannister when he informs Cersie that house Lannisters money is basically a house of cards an illusion of sorts to keep there enemys at bay which got me thinking what if the Lannisters are almost broke in the books as well. The only evidence I can think of in the books that the Lannisters still are very rich is Kevin offering to pay off the IT debts but what if doing so completly depleated house Lannisters funds but Kevin sees keeping the Lannisters on the IT more important?. My last point in when your wealthy like billionair status and you lose your wealth you might have millions left but this said millions cant even keep the lights on in your factorys or gas in your jet etc...... eventually you will be broke in the more literal sense. Is Kevin putting the rest of his money on a gamble so to speak.
  12. Rank the strongest castles in your opinion

    1. Storms End 2. Casterly Rock 3. Riverrun 4. Highgarden - HG is always never brought up as strong but jesus it has 3 walls and a maze to keep intruders out and has a huge grainery to keep its men fed.
  13. Davos' motivation?

    Why not closed mouths dont get fed......
  14. Since Tywin attacks the Riverlands under the kings peace they were not ready for such an invasion and thus were knocked off rather quickly. Lets say Edmure learns of the attack and properly defends his strongholds and keeps would he be able to prevent Tywin doing any real MAJOR damage?
