  1. why does everyone blame Renly for Stannis's mistake

    1. Irrelevant, there were people who supported his claim. 2. Next in line does make you king, Robb even directly said how Bran couldn't be lord before him.
  2. why does everyone blame Renly for Stannis's mistake

    The Targaryens had arguably abused their rights and broken the feudal contract, so they lost their right to the throne. Stannis didn't do such a thing.
  3. why does everyone blame Renly for Stannis's mistake

    Stannis had the right to the throne, plain and simple. He was in the right because by right it was his, that's not hard to understand. Renly wasn't any more ready to let the north be independent, and Robb wouldn't accept that either way.
  4. Rhaegar wasn't polygamous, he was dumping Elia for Lyanna

    Of course he was, but probably not because of politics. Do you think his wife was okay with her being replaced as Rhaegar's child-bearer because of a prophecy, then killed because of the war Rhaegar provoked? With him not showing up for months, leaving her and the kids at Aerys's grace? And with him actively threatening her position as the future first lady and subsequently queen mother? I don't get how the same people who give Robert shit for being unfaithful to Cersei don't critizise Rhaegar at least as harshly. For all we know he was a dick.
  5. Most Underrated Warrior

    Overrated: Ned Stark. Underrated: Garlan Tyrell.
  6. How would these fathers react to Tysha?

    Ned: Disinherits his son. Doran: Doesn't care too much. Mace: Disinherits his son. Robert: Tries to fuck her during his son's wedding. Balon Greyjoy: Probably okay with it as long as she's taken as a salt wife.
  7. The Most Intelligent Adult?

    Is Bloodraven a legit answer?
  8. Best ASOIAF YouTube videos?

    Those are the best for me.
  9. Could the Iron Bank collapse?

    Every bank can collapse, so yeah. I wonder if their reserves are as large as everyone seems to think they are.
  10. Drogon is the best fighter.
  11. Are the Ironborn really Vikings?

    I think you could say that they are vikings, but not medieval norse people. I mean, viking basically was the term for their pirates, so yeah. The difference is that the Ironborn are pretty much defined by that, while it was just a part of norse culture.
  12. How would it be possible? Robert smashed his chest in. That's not the type of death you can easily fake.
  13. Why didn't Stannis and Renly never bonded?

    Stannis is Judge Dredd.
  14. Is the North suppose to be Ancient Germania?

    Not really- but in principle, yes, especially the Lands Beyond the Wall. They are inspired by pretty much every harsh, cold, poor and hostile backwater ever. Those are a reoccuring theme with old civilizations, not only in Europe, but also in China for example.
  15. Playing devil's advocate here: 1. You can't judge every Other by the dozen or so who laughed as they killed Waymar Royce just as you can't judge every human by what the Brave Companions are doing. 2. Do something productive by human standards. You don't know what the Others are doing in the icy wastelands of the North and what is productive to them. 3. They do use corpses as their soldiers, but lords you could say use living people. Though of course we don't know much about the animated corpses and how they are made. 4. The Others may not even have war among each other, and we don't even know how and why they invade the south. Maybe the humans broke their contract, maybe they are migrating to survive, maybe they just want to expand their lands like the First Men did when they originally invaded Westeros.
