  1. Yes MC is impregnable from land cool, as long as an army has a strong fleet the North could never repel an invading force from at least LANDING there army in Northern territory. The Norths shores are only defended at White Harbour on the East coast, the West coast isnt defended AT ALL so a beef with say the Lannisters or the Reach and you could see them sail and land a fleet rather easily. Not to mention before AGOT the Manderlys barely had a fleet at all definitely not one that could repel a foreign invasion from Essos or even if the Vale wanted to take Whites Harbour they could. The cold weather is an advantage and disadvantage for Northern lords because they also need to eat and stay warm which could be a problem if your sieged in your castle and don't have a huge grainery like WF and dreadfort etc.......... I see the North and Vale always talked about as the hardest to invade but I would put Dorne, Westerlands above the North as well due to there natural boarders of mountains and desserts. Even the SL might be harder due to landing a fleet at there shores is tricky business due to rocks and storms so a lord could concentrate his forces at the boarder and fend off there foes, and if a force did land in the Stormlands you can probably cut there fleet in half due to the numbers they would lose in the attempt.
  2. Bobby B had the most gorgeous woman in all Westeros at the time Cersie Lannister and still got drunk and called her Lyanna if thats not greatness I dont kno what is.........
  3. WHAT? I said if I was Renly I would starve KL, I never said Stannis should feed KL ? Please read what I said before commenting ........
  4. If I was Renly I would siege KL starve the population into full blown revolt untill the gate is just opened to me by the smallfolk, but in order to effectivly do this I would need to defeat Stannis fleet so I can block KL from receiving food and possible Allies from the sea. Defeating Stannis at Sea is a tough battle and honestly could go either way so again if I was Renly I would try and kill Stannis before any sea battle took place.
  5. Renly was crowned by the Reach and Stormlands they all bent the knee at some point.
  6. God I hope not I hate Sansa and only Sansa, the tickler is a better character then her.......
  7. Renly believed Cersies children were REAL Baratheons by Robert but they were raised Lannister and thus far more Lannister then Renly would have liked, and Renly knew Joffrey on the throne means Tywin and the Lannisters ruling the kingdoms which Renly did NOT want. This fact makes Renly even more of a piece of shit, because he fully intended to ursurp the birth right of his newphews and nieces. When Stannis sent out the incest letters Renly was surprised by Stannis claims and was generally surprised Stannis took up arms to press HIS claim.
  8. The title says it all, also im curious to how we the reader learned Gendry is Roberts son besides Ned seeing him in KL and seeing a young Robert in Gendry?. Just because you look like someone doesnt always mean your family.
  9. Kevin is a good man and everyone who speaks of him shows there respect he wouldn't allow even Tywin to take his sons life without a fight no real knight would.
  10. lol I suppose Bran could technically prove it at least the Starks would believe Brans word and back his claim if NEEDED, I just really want Gendry to be a proven Baratheon bastard so he can help Edric Storm reclaim what is rightfully his which is Stormsend and the Stormlands itself. It would be cool if Mya helped in some small way as well.
  11. Lancel is Tywins nephew and Kevins son, even if caught Tywin wouldnt have Lancels head on a pike he would do everything in his power to hide what has happened and probably send Lancel away to Essos somewhere or at the very least back to the Westerlands. Kevin would never forgive Tywin if he had Lancel killed, Tywin loves Kevin very much so wouldnt wanna ruin another relationship with another one of his brothers.
  12. Well thats all the proof we need I would say
  13. Gregor is a mad man but he isnt insane enough to sleep with Cersie aka Tywins daughter that spells head on pike very fast, lands ceased and the name Clegane lost for ever.
  14. I believe Jamie losing his hand was for the best in terms of finding "himself" and being less of a dick head to everyone including Brienne of Tarth which there relationship is what changed Jamie the most IMO. If Jamie kept his hand and Tyrion asked him to champion for him in Joffreys murder trial I believe he does fight for Tyrion since Tywin was present I believe he would tell Ser Gregor to leave at once before Cersie can command him to be her champion. If Jamie and the mountain did fight the mountain wins by a hair, only reason Oberyn was winning was because he was using a long spear which takes away Gregors height and reach advantage.
  15. Wasnt Selmy on decent terms with Jamie? Or was this just the show?
  16. Were told that pre AGOT the NW numbers are some where in the ball park of 1000 men which is a long way from the 10000 plus they had before Aegon and his conquest of Westeros my question is how does the NW lose so many men when in theory a united Westeros should yield MORE men then just the North could previously? The nights watch use to be a very honorable order but pre AGOT we see its pretty much a joke now unfortunatly so this accounts for losing men who wish to join willingly BUT............. the combined man power of the 8 kingdoms of Westeros criminals alone who chose the NW over death, losing a hand, castration, etc would be WAY more then what the NW watch had previously willingly. Also take in account the homeless smallfolk who have no home or food in the winter and would use the watch as a means of pure survival, the homeless rate in fuedalism time was very high so IMO most would chose the watch over as I said starving I know I would.
  17. IMO Tywin knew 85% it wasnt Tyrion I suspect probably even possibly knowing who really did kill Joffrey, the thing is he didnt care at all because Joffrey was a twit and would cause alote of problems for Tywin down the road. Tyrion was a convienent scape goat and nothing more. Tywin would put a price on Tyrions head and would ignore what Jamie did publically to save whats left of his sons honor but privatly he would tell jamie he is a moron. Tywin would put no effort into finding Tyrion but Cersie would.
  18. We know as it sits Cersie is technically lady of Casterly rock but we as the reader know Cersie is bat shit crazy and her bannerman in the books suspect she is at the very least incompetent in terms of leading the Westerlands in war which someone has to pick up the slack. Most of us readers think it's probably Jamie but I personally think its Devann Lannister he is the commander of the Lannister army in the Westerlands and more importantly respected by the Lannister Bannerman, also Jamie being in the KG removes his claim to CR. Where im going with this is Cersie will make more mistakes and her bannerman will need a liege lord who is looking out for the Westerlands best interests not her own and the crowns, and Devann already has an army, is charismatic, respected more by leeps and bounds, as a Lannister has a claim to CR. The West will abandon Cersie and in a fit of insanity she will even name them enemies of the crown, showing her remaining allies its time to jump ship.
  19. This is basically the answer the island wasnt abanded at all the Valaryans were holding it for a LONG time, and who in Westeros would dare attack the Valaryans at the height of there Power over Planteos?.
  20. Danny is known as the mother of dragons and more importantly "breaker of chains" and has taken slavers bay by storm freeing all slaves within her power to do so with the mission of freeing them all AND of course take back the 7k in the name of house Targaryan. Danny has the man power and three dragons but is missing a key component in reaching Westeros which is a fleet, and another key component in a much needed ally in Essos to help her finish off the rest of the slavers who want her and her movement dead. If she reached out to Bravvos I think she could sell an alliance rather easily by offering them a way to end Slavery in Essos for ever AND by offering them almost all the LOOT gained from the war from Dannys conquered enemies which im sure would be quote substantial. All Danny wants is Bravvos fleet the money isnt needed one bit, also we can assume Pentos would chose the side opposing Bravvos since they have faught 6 wars against the Bravoshi for differences in views against slavery and the land that sits between the two powers ultimatly Bravvos forced them to give up the ways of slavery altogether. Danny has dragons so is a way more sure bet then any other option and if Pentos is defeated the Bravoshi gain LAND in terms of the land they must share on the Pentoshi boarder which is highly needed since Bravvos mainland is swampy so not very good for growing crops which is why currently they survive thru trade which has made them the richest out of any free city.
  21. Lord Manderly has shown nothing but fierce loyalty to house Stark even when they lose everything including Winterfell Manderly still works towards Stark interests and you can tell by how his granddaughter talks has taught his family to serve house Stark with loyality. Of course with Rickon Manderly has all the power with regent status but I wouldn't trust anyone in the North more besides maybe Howland Reed with said power.
  22. Agreed about most of your points especially where GRRM didn't just tell us about Bravvos great Navy for no reason at all, and with two more books left the only logical way I see Bravvos fleet being used is when Danny goes to Westeros finally.
  23. 2) I don't recall ever reading that someone hired the FM to kill Danny's dragons ? 3) I doubt the tattered prince gets Pentos but it is plausible. 4) The Iron Bank is a separate entity from Bravvos although as you said do have a lot of pull, if Danny can convince the Sea Lord of her good will towards Bravvos and truly ending slavery forever I cant see why an agreement couldnt be made. Also the Iron Bank likes to back several sides if they "need" to placing bets on the beautiful mother of dragons with an army and possible future Iron islands alliance in Victarion seems like a logical bet.
  24. House Mormont with out a doubt ........
