  1. I feel it is important to note that at this time I believe Tywin has already attacked the Riverlands. So he has already attacked another Great House in defense of his son. Because he has his last name. So I don't know if the "King's peace" has been upheld at all at this point.
  2. Thank all of you for your responses. The 2k thing was merely a off the cuff but I didn't think of the Tyrells. Though I assume it would be Willas Tyrell they'd try to make an alliance for? On a more what if, say Dany was a male Targaryen do you think this would be a difference? As in would the North, if accepting, would try to marry this person off to Sansa to secure an Alliance? It seems from the comments that a North-Tar alliance could be possible given Dragons and the right amount of soldiers for the Targs. Though pointed out all regions, but the North, had Targaryen loyalist. So the Riverlands, even under Robb, may want to unite under Dany(Boy or girl) so it doesn't seem as it would be an outright now way from the army of the King in the North. Also having allies against the Lannister who's claim to the throne is completely illegitimate may take priority. Then if it is well known that the Targaryen heir is there to to take back the Throne I am sure Dorne would lead its assistance, especially by Oberyn.
  3. I like to run a lot of "what if?" Scenarios. Here is one I have been thinking of lately. So Robb has already been dubbed King in the North and it is during of the thick of the War of the Five Kings. If Dany flew over, and asked for him to assist her in taking the throne would he have? What if Visery's(Let's say he isn't a prick) arrived and asked Robb to support his claim and he can rule the north? My idea is mixed, cause I feel like there is a bit of connection with the North and Targaryens. That they respected and "bent the knee to dragons". Obviously in recent times this changed but I wonder if Robb agreed to an Alliance to a Targaryen how would they feel? There is also the idea that Robb needs allies so would he refuse a dragon's help? (If say they were full grown) Or even if a Targaryen arrived with like 2,000 soldiers, would the North be hostile or supportive?
  4. Thanks guys for the information. I completely forgot that it was Oberyn that signed the pact.
  5. I want to know how involved with the last Targaryen's Doran Martell and his family are, and by extension Dorne Mostly on how much does Prince Oberyn know. Does he know about Aegon? About the marriage pact/offer? Do they know Varys is an ally? Is Varys clueing them in on the whole matter, or is Doran getting his own sources? (It has been a year or two since I read the books so I am a little hazy on things.)

  7. To be honest, because it is Martin, it could simply be 6. As you said it seems the most probable. Though at the same time because it is Martin it could be something much more complex. I enjoyed your write up, though I don't have much else to offer beyond I feel that 6 is most probable.. Followed by 2 with the others very far behind.
  8. A tiny bit off topic. But who currently "owns" or rules Moat Cailin? Is it the Reeds? And a little more on topic. I don't believe you can look at Moat Cailin alone as the factor it cuts off the south. The Crannogmen are a HUGE factor in this gamble. That before you even have to deal with the ruins of Moat Cailin you have been bled by them and the terrain. Disease, poison, supplies being disrupted, hostile flora and fauna, etc. (Others have echoed this). But additionally whenever you try to take the time to build things and gather supplies you are meet with the harsh terrain and the Crannogmen doing hit and run. And all the time you take trying to fix problem A and then problem B pops up you have already run out of supplies (Or at least have less than those you are trying to siege)
  9. Nah, please share what you think of this. Even if it strays a bit from the main topic.
  10. Again, thanks and Knight of Winter you point out a lot of really good things. I didn't even think of the missing out on an alliance bit. One thing I forgot to ask before is how do you think Eddard and his family would react? Let's say there is a feast, or for whatever reason this second son or lord is there. Scorn from Catelyn? Distrust from Eddard? Curiosity from the kids? And let's just set up the Wildling. Let's say she is a Wildling but she is smart enough or "learned" enough to know when she shouldn't push the boundary. At least in a situation that can radically harm her husband(Violence committed against). But at the same time still is a Wildling as Wildling goes.
  11. Thanks to all you guys for replying. My idea was set in the "normal" times before a Dance of Dragons. It seems like most agree they'd at least be shunned a bit. Now what if it was like a lesser Lord? Say the second son of a smaller house? Do you think it'd matter if it was a second son vs an heir to the house? What if this couple were to leave the north and go south like, King's Landing? Do you think many of them would realize she is a Wildling and shun them? Or would they maybe assume she was a "quirky" northerner?
  12. As the title says what would happen if a Northern Lord take for a wife a wildling? I am curious on what the North's reaction would be to this Has this happened before? The lord's peers, or higher born lords that rule them. Or their lord paramount How would they react? Or how many people would actual care? Wanted to hear what you all thought on the matter.
  13. I really enjoyed the break down. Any other chance's we'll see lots of the Dorne/Vale banners in the future? Or is there too little information to try to figure out how many men they can field per household?
  14. I did indeed checked out this discussion and while it was amazingly helpful it didn't exactly cover everything I was looking for. Though one thing about the discussion that I could humor is Baelish wanting to bring down the great houses of westeros and be the only man left standing. Just because he wants to, and the vindication that he can. To me it seems he is weaving destruction through every great house, as if to bleed them dry. Then use the Vale for his own means to pick up the pieces But still I feel like there has to be something else. But maybe I am comparing him to Varys as Varys has a "higher calling" for his cause..
  15. Thank you! Yeah, he wants to be of importance. But now being Lord Paramount of the Riverlands and Protector of the Vale? Correct? It seems he has gathered a lot of power. And isn't the finding money was just borrowing it from others. I am curious if Petyr was purposely doing this to make the crown in incredible debt and perhaps weaken it. I just have a hard time figuring out why he is doing all this beyond gaining power. It doesn't seem like Varys who according to him he is trying to serve Westeros and seemingly restore the Targaryens to the Iron Throne. His end game. But Petyr just seems like a power grab at the moment but I feel like there has to be more to it than that.
