  1. I think there is a rule that the male Starks are the political idiots and the She-Wolves are "Dangerous Women". It really shocked me when Jon took out Janos Slynt. Well, Jon is half a Targaryen. I suppose Stoneheart and Sansa and of course Arya will take care of all available targets in time.
  2. Who instructed Mandon Moore to kill Tyrion?

    "Respected" is nice. Weren't there hints of a homosexual relationship between Ser Vardis Egen and Ser Mandon Moore when they lived in KL for 15 years?
  3. It was an incredible stupid political move. Besides the whole Northern independence movement, Tywin delivered a direct attack on the whole feudal system. Walder Frey took his liege lord captive and got Riverrun by the Lannister Government; Roose Bolton killed his liege lord and was named Warden of the North. So what next? Will the Lannisters encourage the Redwynes to kill Mace Tyrell? No House in the 7 Kingdoms will be safe as long as Houses Lannister, Frey and Bolton exist. Edited for spelling
  4. Jaime Lannister's death

    Wouldn't she?. Day will come to chose between the FM and Needle...
  5. Jaime Lannister's death

    I take it Arya will learn that Jaime was the one who shoved Bran out of the window (she doesn't know yet!), and she'll kill him in an awesome sword fight of the left-handers! :fencing:
  6. Who will sit the iron throne?

    Tycho Nestoris. Just to make the Lannisters pay their debts. Of course, he needs permission of the Sealady.
  7. Braavos, of course. But the weather... :bang:
  8. King - Jon Targaryen, First of his name Queen - Arya Stark (I know, cousins etc., but they seem to like it, so what?) Hand: Ser Barristan Selmy Grand Maester - Marwyn Deputy - Samwell Tarly Secretary of State - Syrio Forel (Expert for secret negotiations. Or do you still believe he was in King's Landing just to teach Arya swordplay?) Master of Coin - Tycho Nestoris (An expert needed. Let's face it, Littlefinger just made debts and filled his pockets. Nestoris may fill his pockets, but he won't make debts.) Master of Laws - Davos Seaworth (No more burnings, plain common sense!) Master of Ships - Moredo Prestayn (Braavosi don't worry for Ironborn attacks cause they can build a new war galley in just one day. MP will make Westerosi shipyards fit for competition.) Master of Whisperers - intelligence - Bran Stark operations - Arya Stark (who says a Queen can't run a Secret Service?) Master of Civil Engineering - Tyrion Lannister (time for an Aqueduct in KL) Master of Trade - Wyman Manderly KG LC Ser Bryndon Tully Ser Brienne of Tarth Sandor Clegane Ser Garlan Tyrell Alysanne Mormont Mance Ryder Meera Reed Warden of the North: Rickon Stark, Lord of Winterfell Warden of the West: Asha Greyjoy, Lady of Pyke Warden of the South: Arianne Martell, Lady of Sunspear, Princess of Dorne Warden of the East: Yohn Royce, Lord Paramount of the Vale, Lord of Runestone Ambassador to Braavos: Lord Petyr Baelish. A lifetime job. He might open some brothels in Ragman's Harbor. Ambassador to Pentos: Lord Varys. A lifetime job with his friend Illyrio. Edited for spelling
  9. Seven hells - Stannis + Arya as Masters of Laws: her night prayer will become endless! :rofl:
  10. Well, he just made disappear a singer now and then....Why not make him Master of Free Press (just for redemption...)? :idea:
  11. Your thoughts on Izembaro?

    As a German, I had to read the English version of ADwD to learn wtf you folks are arguing about. The German translation of the line goes this way: "Morgen gehst du zu Izembaro und trittst Deine erste Lehre an." The German "gehen zu" means definitely "going to someone, somebody, some person". The German "gehen nach" would mean "going to someplace". I think GRRM has some control of the book translations, so Izembaro is a person, probably a male Braavosi, as was already pointed out. I might add that the German "gehen zu" means, strictly speaking, to walk to someone (by foot), not "using a boat" or "going by dragon". So you are looking for a person, probably male, living in short distance from the house of Black and White, that can be reached by only using bridges. Have a look at the newly edited city map of Braavos. That can't be but 100 000 inhabitants! Just so. :read: Edited for addition.
  12. Vote : Who will rule westeros?

    Ferrego Antaryon. Or whoever will be elected Sealord of Braavos in the end. - Braavos is a Renaissance city, 2 centuries ahead in development of medieval Westeros - Braavos already took financial control of Westeros. - the Sealord already arranges treaties between Dorne and the Targaryens. - Braavos seems to have some good working intelligence organisations (Iron Bank, FM etc.) Even a small blind girl is informed about almost everything that happens in Westeros. - Braavos is build of stone (with plenty of water nearby). Attacking dragons might find it difficult to burn anything besides the wooden ships in the harbours. - To attack Braavos from the North, the Others will have to swim or build a fleet. Strange idea. - Braavos and Lorath are situated as far to the North as the Fingers - but nobody in Essos cares for the seasons anyway. Winter may come. - traffic connection: much faster going by the Narrow Sea from Kings Landing or White Harbour to Braavos than reaching Winterfell over the Kings Road. - after several civil wars and a large scale fight with Others and/or dragons, there will be little resistance, and Westeros will be glad of support at the rebuild of the country - like Germany 1945. Impossible? Then how come Venice controlled the remnants of the Eastern Roman Empire for centuries after the crusades?
