  1. Hoe do I like posts from other members? Could I give you like - a virtual hug or something? Thanks! :-D
  2. How long would it take, roughly, to journey from Lannisport to Oldtown by ship?
  3. I found a song called How Red Wedding Goes that I really liked. LYRICS: Now there once was a time when the northerners sang Of a king they had crowned: More a boy than a man More a pup than a wolf, with the cold of the realm in his eyes He’d broken a vow to the lords of the twins: Wed a stranger, a beauty, but a promise there’d been So the lord frey demanded a bridegroom as compromise And the timbers groaned River wind softly moaned “Oh, the king in the north doesn’t know How a red wedding goes” Well, the feasting was plenty and the singing in tune And the stark wolves, they howled ‘neath their northern moon So loud were their cries that the closing of doors was drowned out Lady catelyn alone had the river’s sharp ear Heard dancing reels turn to the rains of castamere In her skin and bones growled a creature of doubt And the timbers groaned River wind softly moaned, “Oh, the king in the north soon will know How a red wedding goes” There were arrows and daggers, and the touch of them burned; From players to slayers in an instant were turned And the foreigner queen was the first to fall under the knife With two arrows in him, the king crawled to her side While his mother, she pleaded for the lord to subside But he’d taken their word, and to break it meant no right to life And the timbers groaned River wind softly moaned “Oh, the king in the north, now he knows How a red wedding goes” Lord bolton approached; with a thrust to robb’s heart He gave him the lannister lions’ regards And the king’s mother wept, for his last word had called her to him There was nothing she felt cutting lady frey’s throat And she felt nothing more when they slashed her own The north will remember, she thought, and they’ll have all your skins And the timbers groaned Now the wolves lie below Oh, the king in the north, if he’d known How a red wedding goes And the timbers groan But the north waits; they know That one day the blood they ared owed Will run ‘neath their soles
  4. I will! :-D
  5. I should think so, as long as you mark the title of the thread with a ¨[Spoilers]' before posting it, if the news are recent.
  6. Sorry if this is the wrong place for this sort of thing, but I just stumbled upon it and thought it was worth sharing here: Have any of you heard this before? I mean - holy poop, someone in the comment section of this video said that they "could see this being played at a tavern in the North as a folk song", and I totally agree.
  7. Gottcha. Thanks! :-D
  8. Thanks! I wasn't sure if children could earn links, or if one had to be an adult to do that. Yes, but has it ever been mentioned to be frowned upon? Do the Citadel frown upon people who enter their halls but does not fully commit to the order of measters, or are the occasional comings and goings people treated no differently than people studying a field/taking an education without choosing to work with it for a living?
  9. Thanks! :-D Ah, good point. Thanks a lot! :-D I have some other questions as well... What exactly is the the duties of the Master of Laws? I mean... "Kevan Lannister, provides the boy king with documents to sign, including pardons, grants, and bills of attainder." so it has to be more than advising the king verbally and overseeing the dungeons? I know the wikia said that true water dancers can kill on top of the Moon Pool without disturbing the water, but is there any mention of bravos who duel at night in Braavos just for the sake of improving their skill - as in, content with disarming/defeating an opponent without having to maim or kill them? When Cersei was arrested by the Faith Militant and Kevan restored the old titles of the Small Council, he kept that of justiciar. Now that the Master of Laws and the Justiciar both have a seat of the council, how do you differentiate between the two posts? Do they work separately, or do the justiciar assist the master of laws? Do the justiciar handle some of the duties that once belonged to the master of laws, rendering the latter purely an advisor? Theoretically, if a Lord sent their son to the Citadel at the age of ten, will that lordling have been able to earn a link prior to they came of age through studying, or is it like - a prep-course period for particularly young students adults bypass because adults are expected to be more worldly wise? Also, we know of two character who studied at the Citadel but did not become measters. Is this frowned upon, or are nobles free or use the Citadel just as a place of learning?

  14. I visited the iceandfire wikia, where I added a page for "Master of Laws" and wrote the following: The holder of this title is expected to have extensive knowledge on both the King's laws as well as the local laws of the various regions of Westeros. It is known that the Master of Laws is responsible to overseeing the dungeons at the Red Keep, and that those who work there report to him. I mean to change it, as the next thing I wrote was a bit more speculative than intended: It is presumably also customary for the Master of Laws to reside as one of the seven judges in criminal trials, and might also represent the Iron Throne in settling lesser disputes between the smallfolk in King's Landing, as leaving them to their own devices might cause a sense of neglect and spark rebellion or conflict. The City Watch of King's Landing presumably also falls under his purview. It is also possible that the Master of Laws assists the Hand of the King in an advisory capacity when they draw up the King's laws. But... What do you suppose is the the duties of this office? I mean... "Kevan Lannister, provides the boy king with documents to sign, including pardons, grants, and bills of attainder." so it has to be more than advising the king verbally and overseeing the dungeons.
  15. Is there a difference between 'household guard' like the ones getting their asses handed to them by Syrio Forel and 'household knights', or are household knights simply occupying a position as a Lord's guardsmen?
