  1. The strength of Great Houses compared to their bannermen.

    These great houses usually tend to hold on to their power because of the vast influence they have on the area despite having less swords at their command than some of their lords. If some of these houses with more swords rebel, they tend to lose the battle as the Great House commands the most influence and is able to conjure up more numbers than the rebel lord and eventually win.
  2. Jamie's reaction to Aegon

    We may never get Jamie's reaction to Aegon. :drunk: He would most likely assume that he is a fake(like almost everyone) but if he learns that Connington is riding with him, then..... He would be more inclined to believe his survival and I doubt that it would have any effect on his loyalties to anyone, considering how easily he abandoned the crown for Sansa.
  3. Why didn't Tywin Lannister remarry?

    Haha, your joking right?!?!
  4. Why didn't Tywin Lannister remarry?

    Well it is likely that Tywin was thinking he already had 3 children fit to carry on my line and House Lannister. This could be one of the reasons he never remarried and he could think that no one other than Joanna was worthy to marry him(just a theory). However when Jamie joins the KG, this becomes a big blow and he then probably does have conflicting feelings about remarrying at a younger.
  5. Why didn't Tywin Lannister remarry?

    This is an interesting question, it is easy to say that Tywin just didn't feel like getting married and kept on with his whoring but you raise the argument of 3 offspring not having very good odds. I wouldn't say its relatively bad odds since they can carry on the legacy of the house with ease and provide children themselves, though events lead to Jamie joining the KG and Tyrion being the heir of Tywin and from the start, Tywin did not want Tyrion to have CR and this tells us he was willing to give it to a different Lannister(Probably Kevan). I have a feeling Tywin didn't remarry and get other sons because he didn't want younger sons ruling as Roose said already that young boys ruling can be the bane of any house.
  6. Who will be the final POV character?

    Bran being the final POV would be quite sad in my opinion, if his family members find peace, Bran will only be able to watch them, see them live out their lives and eventually die.(Assuming he chooses the path BR lays for him)
  7. Who will be the final POV character?

    I like the idea of Bran being the final POV.A neutral third-person look at the world interests me also. My bet is on Bran.
  8. The Grand Small Council

    I disagree with LF as a choice, we haven't seen any true loyalty from LF to any known house, people may argue Varys wouldn't be a wise choice but we know he can be loyal to a house.
