KING-OF-WINTERFELL

How would you make the North rich and/or powerful?

127 posts in this topic

Question is self explanatory, you can choose how long it would take, to borrow, to steal, to build and who to marry and you can choose any time in history as well. But try to make as realistically as possible, I know that's saying something for a fantasy country in a fantasy series, but arguments about westerosi agriculture taught me that you guys are capable of it.

Is this at the beginning of the series, when the Stark children are alive? And for the marriage, are we talking about the Stark family?

I always wondered why the North does not have any fleet of ships. They have the largest forest extension of westeros so they no lack wood. I would build a fleet of ships to plunder and sack the commertial ships of the free cities Iron Islands style.


I'd go to illyrio mopatis's house and I'd steal everything.

Invest in building another city on the other side of the north that could trade easily with the Westerlands and the Reach. It would require a fleet to defend it from the ironborn but I think that's something the north should invest in anyway.

Sell criminals for gold instead of sending them to the Night's Watch. Lucrative new boom market ensues.

Add more ports at the eastern side. Open trade with free cities with lower tariff for imports/exports. Charge heavily at the neck a-la lord of the crossing. Explore mining opportunities and tourism. Open the wall for visa business/tourist applications for wildlings.

As far as richer? Not sure. More powerful? Fortify the neck like Ned wanted, tell the Lannisters F off and NEVER GO SOUTH.

Kill all Freys.



Don't know if that would make them more powerful or richer, but it would certainly make them happier and safer.
