    Was Aegon The Conqueror to generous ?

    To which?
  2. Regardless of whether or not one agrees with the statement in the topic, I do not believe Tywin would have done anything that would have seriously risked Jaime's execution. Not yet at least. Joffrey living and Tommen under his thumb for years? Maybe more likely...
  3. By default? Absolutely not. Might there be interest? Of course.
  4. I think that most of the potentially interested parties would be waiting and watching, unless he has those 40k dothraki and the golden company. Given the year, I think it is more likely that he is quickly defeated before the "loyalists" show their colors.
  5. I do not think he should have. However, I do suspect that his uncle and perhaps other Lords suggest he look at his recent blunders before entrusting him with important plans. Then again, defending Robb's flank is slightly important...
  6. I agree with the middle two points. There are other reasons - some might actually want to honor their oath to their king, some may feel compelled to do so regardless, some may be bound by alliances, some may actually have had good relations with Aerys, etc.

    Why did Jon Arryn raise his banners ?

    Oath to the crown versus his opinion of said King & heir, relations with Rickard Stark, Elbert Arryn's execution, his relationship with Robert/Ned and what Aerys was demanding of him, and doing what he thought was morally sound. Hard choice.

    Why did Hoster Tully support the rebellion ?

    A pragmatic and opportunist powerful lord in a feudal kingdom with an insane king.
  9. Love the analysis & the Baratheons, but I still believe Donal had it correct. I do enjoy a good read and reasoning though :).

    Why didn't Rhaenys do a harrenhal on Sunspear?

    Destroying Sunspear alone will not destroy Dornish resistance, destroying Harrenhal ended house Hoare. While houses Hoare and Gardner (field of fire) were all in one place at one time, the theme of the Dornish (Martell included) is that they are scattered and will hide in the desert or mountains.

    My thoughts are: please produce, approve, produce/film, and release season ASAP.

    Gregor vs. Ghost

    No armour? Gregor is screwed.
  13. Easy to call 14-16 year olds in Leadership positions for hundreds (Jon) to millions (Robb) in a medieval society stupid... I do not think either one of them is stupid. However, inexperienced (both), naive (Robb), gullible (Robb), stubborn (both) to name a few. I think Jon shows much greater promise when it comes to the political side of things, while Robb has a more sound martial mind.
  14. Whatever Rhaegar read about that got him to get his "stuff" together...

    ASOIAF quotes used in real life?

    I have only ever loved one woman. Your sister.... Can a man be brave if he is afraid? That is the only time a man can be brave.
