  1. Euron was never afraid of the Lion. It was by his design that Victorian burned the Lannister fleet at Lannisport. I thought a Lannister always pays his debt. Euron and Victarian never paid for the deed. The Reynes, Tarbecks, and Starks suffered far more for lesser slights. Balon only lost two sons for his family burning the Lannister fleet. He kept his seat, his head, and his power.
  2. Tyrion's killing of Tywin was an over reaction?

    Tywin is hated because he is a war criminal and a sadist. You use the phrase "for the honor of his house" as an excuse to overlook some of Tywin's baser qualities. Tywin overlooked the rape of his good daughter for the honor of his house. he ordered the murder of Aegon and Rhanys for the honor of his house. he orchestrated the rape and murder of thousands in the riverlands for the honour of his house. When I first started posting to this board I was amused and slightly annoyed at how many people would overlook Tywin's brutality while simultaneously downplaying other characters such as Dany or Jon, who would never order the deaths of children for the honor of their house.
  3. Tyrion's killing of Tywin was an over reaction?

    I'm not sure if the OP is a troll or not. Tywin was a monster who deserve worse than what the imp gave him. I wish that he could have lived to see the downfall of his house.
  4. Most: Dany freeing the slaves of SB Least: The sack of Saltpans
  5. Who would you have liked to see a dialogue between?

    The Queen of Thorns and Lord Walder Frey The Greatjon Umber and The Mountain That Rides-- I imagine a lot of growling. Danaerys Stormborn and Cersei Lannister. Damphair and The Red Priestess
  6. Tysha Theories??

    I was actually being facetious in my post. House Hoare is my favorite extinct house and I find the phrase Hoare bastard incredibly funny. Tysha has as much of a chance of being a Hoare bastard than Daario has of being Euron. I've always loved the Tysha story and I cross my fingers with the hope that she turns up in the novels. Perhaps Tyrion will find her in Slavers Bay.
  7. Tysha Theories??

    Tysha is obviously a Hoare Bastard who was living in the Westerlands when she had her fateful encounter with Tyrion Lannister and Tywin's band of merry guards. Considering Tysha's lineage and the question of where do whores/Hoares go, the answer is quite simple.....Tysha is currently residing at a holdfast at Great Wyk, raising her bastard offspring who is secretly the PTWP and yet another Targ bastard through Tyrion.
  8. why does everyone blame Renly for Stannis's mistake

    Stannis was Robert's heir pure and simple. That is why Robert gave Stannis Dragonstone. Renly is the villain for his part in the WoFK. And for people mocking Stannis for killing Renly by black magic.....you all have conviently left out the fact that Renly had amassed a huge army which was about to go to war with Stannis with the intent to kill him and usurp his claim. How Renly died is irrelevant.....the man was likeable.....but also a fool and a usurper. Im not the biggest Stannis fan.....but he gets a lot of disrespect. The King Who Cared? Stannis is the only King to heed the NW's plea for help, and for that act alone he gets my respect. If Renly had followed Stannis, like a dutiful younger brother, the Lannisters would have been crushed in ACOK.
  9. Who will kill Jaime Lannister

    Summer will kill Jaime for crippling Bran, it is known.
  10. rights and responsibilities of "Warden of X"

    The title of "warden" is more than just honorary title. During the conversation between Ned and Robert in AGOT, Ned warns Robert on the danger of placing half of the realm's armies in the hands of the Lannisters. Robert told Ned how he named Jaime Lannister Warden of the east due to SR's youth and feebleness I always thought that each warden were in charge of an army, which was to fight against a specific threat. For example, the warden of the North encompasses all of the Northern Houses and is charged with defended the realm from any attacks from wildlings, who've managed to bypass the wall, and from any threat from northern Essos. The Warden of the East probably is charged with defending the 7K from any army invading from Essos, the Warden of the East would command Vale, Stormland, and Crowlands armies most likely. The Warden of the West encompasses Lannister, Tully, and Greyjoy armies, and they would guard against any threat against the west coast of Westeros. This would probably include the ever looming threat of ironborn raiders....I seem to remember reading that King Robert summoned his Warden of the West and North to help crush the Greyjoy rebellion. The Warden of the South encompasses Tyrell, Martell, and marcher lord armies against all threats from the south, which during most of the 7K history would include Dornish incursions, attack from pirates of the Stepstones, and any threats from S. Essos.
  11. Most complex relationship of asoiaf

    Tyrion is one of the smartest characters in the series. His brief time as Hand of the King is a showcase of his intelligence, and if it wasn't for Tyrion, Stannis would have taken KL. Tywin hates Tyrion.....but even so he grudgingly sends him to KL to become acting hand to bring Joffrey and Cersei to heel. This is a great honor, and one not given out for sentimentality. Tywin is well aware of Tyrion's intelligence, and is rewarded by this move when KL is still standing when he rescues the day during the Blackwater battle. My favorite chapter is from ACOK when Tyrion skillfully played Varys, Littlefinger, and Pycelle in an attempt to find out who is leaking information to his sweet sister. The only reason why Tyrion doesn't rise any higher is his status as a dwarf.
  12. Most complex relationship of asoiaf

    It seems that Robert was the one who was petty. If it wasn't for Stannis starving at SE, the Tyrells and their bannermen could have taken the Baratheon's castle and joined Rhaegar's army at the trident. If it wasn't for his little brother....the royalist had an excellent chance of winning the war. My brother is weird.....but I love him still, and my brother didn't do half of what Stannis did for Robert. Bobby was best friends with Ned, who was far from charismatic and fun to be around, yet he offers Ned Hand of the King over Stannis? Robert's beef against Stannis is one of the main reasons why Tommen sits upon the Iron Throne. A united Baratheon alliance + Ned + Tullys would have been bad news for the Lannisters. One of my favorite parts of ACOK was when Cersei and Tyrion shared a laugh when they found out Stannis was fighting Renly
  13. Most complex relationship of asoiaf

    Tyrion and Tywin was the first one to come to mind. They are so much alike in personality except that Tyrion isn't as judgmental as Tywin, and Tywin is able to control his baser instincts a little better than his son. And despite the fact that Shae was found in Tywin's bed in ASOS, I cannot imagine Tywin ever falling in love with a low-born whore.....or getting drunk. I loathe Tywin Lannister and was so glad when Tyrion put that bolt through his father's gut. Poetic justice. Another complex relationship is Robert and Stannis. Stannis suffered from middle child syndrome and was secretly jealous of his exceptional older brother. That's obvious....but I have no idea why Robert didn't like Stannis. Stannis almost died holding his brother's castle, and he took Dragonstone from the Targs and smashed the Ironborn in a brilliant trap during the Greyjoy Rebellion. I would think that a warrior like Robert would appreciate the tenacity of his younger brother. Instead we find that Robert was contemptuous and dismissive of Stannis ......to the point of naming his most useless brother as lord of SE just to spite Stannis. So much could have been avoided if only Robert had loved and treated his little brother better.
  14. I hate Joff only a little more than Tywin.....and with that said if Joff ordered his KG to arrest his grandfather, Tywin would be arrested. The KG are sworn to obey, and when it comes down to it, Joffrey would have more power. Tywin would be committing suicide to publicly go against the king.....Joffrey could marshal most of the 7K against Tywin....Tywin would only have the loyal of most of the Westerlands, along with whatever sellswords he could muster.
  15. Your Hero: Top 3

    My sentiments exactly. I was about to reply, but decided not to become ensnared by troll bait. in regards to OP, Ser Duncan the Tall-- what more can I say....he defends the weak from the strong. He's my definition of a true knight. Brienne the Beauty-- she's cut from the same cloth as Ser Duncan. Lord Commander Snow--what more can I say...defended Sam from his brothers, saved Mance's child, turned down his father's seat and sexy a** Val for honor and the watch, refused to let King Stannis use the wildlings as arrow fodder, etc etc Queen Danaerys-- Freed ever slave that she's encountered since leaving Qarth. She is the fantasy equivalent of John Brown and doesn't get nearly enough praise for this act. Is she perfect? No.....but I can't hate on her for freeing slaves. Lord Davos-- defends children and has the balls to tell Stannis the truth, a grave act considering that risks a horrible death by burning everytime he defies his liege.
