  1. Cersei will use it to try to destroy her enemies, blind that it will destroy her too. Kind of like Aerys, fitting that the younger brother will kill her as well.
  2. Don't have any particular hopes for Dany in power period. Would be okay with her staying in power in Essos though. All for Jon though, even though I am clearly not a Targaryen fan. Perhaps because of how his "father" raised him.
  3. Tourney at Harrenhal hands down. Also would throw out there: Barristan being allowed to rescue Aerys. Jon bringing Baelish to KL. Varys being pardoned by Robert. Loren Lannister kneeling.
  4. Depends, does Ned reveal what he suspects?
  5. Possible reasons: a big FU to his wife, House Martell. Because he could. To keep her as far away from the looming white walker threat as possible (in addition to their child). To keep her as far away as possible from the fighting, the rebels. Scattering loved ones in case the capital fell.
  6. How is Tommen, an eight year old boy, fated to be a poor King? He's young enough (whikle lacking the psycho incest gene) to learn. As is Myrcellla, but there is so indication she is exceptionally wise, As for Aegon - I am not against him personally. I am against his allies though, and the notion that the Targaryens have a right to rule Westeros.
  7. Light to no armored short distance melee cavalry and archers. They don't last a campaign season. At worst they beat a bunch of unorganized armies and cause terror, sacking and incurring losses of their own in the Riverlands, Crownlands, and/or Reach.
  8. Aerys killed Brandon and Rickard while demanded the execution ("the heads") of Robert and Ned. Jon Arryn lost his heir as well to Aerys. Meanwhile, Aerys' son and heir disappeared with the betrothed virgin daughter of a Lord Paramount (and sister/daughter of the executed). So Aerys and Rhaegar were going to have to go one way or another. I do not see any indication of a threat to the female Targaryens from the main group of rebeles (Queen, Rhaegar's daughter or the unborn Dany, or Elia frankly at this point). I envision it was going to end with one of three scenarios: Aegon has a prolonged regency with Elia in KL. One of the Rebel Leaders (if not all) would form a Regency or Regency Council. One of the rebel leaders (likely Robert) would be betrothed to Rhaenys. He would do his thing and father a lot of bastards until the marriage could be consumated for legitimate children. OTL.
  9. Suspecting it was Tywin Lannister's bannerman without proof and going after themselves, particularly when it seems like they have a tendency to do things on an individual basis, is quite dangerous. They wanted support.
  10. Ned: Tell Cat and Jon. Later on - just tell Robert! Don't tell Cersei! Heed Loras' offer, later Renly. Robb: Don't trust Theon, the Freys, or the Boltons. Also might want to double check those levy numbers from Houses Dustin and Ryswell. Renly: Be patient. Stannis is not going to have a son. Kevan: Always travel with a bodyguard.
  11. They will all make it, whether a female member survives and will have to pass it on to the children or otherwise. Perhaps the Targaryens go. At the very least I see: Tyrell - some random cousins (most vulnerable). Lannister - Lannister of Lannisport (if not Tyrion, Tyrek, or one of Kevan's). Stark - Arya and Sansa will live. Confident about Bran although not his reproductive abilities. Rickon iffy and Jon well.... you know. Tully - Either Edmure, Child, or Both. Arryn - Robert, Harry, or both. Greyjoy - Asha. Martell - Arianne and/or a Sand snake. Baratheon - Bobby's babies.
  12. The number of members of the major houses & cadet branches. aside from the Lannisters and Tyrells. Popping out one to three children of which often 0-1 have children would not lead to multigenerational dynasties, let alone ones lasting for centuries to thousands of years. Ironborn Power - Makes zero sense. Dornish population - also makes no sense. Based upon what we are told, its geography is designed to have virtually no inhabitants outside of two small river basins. Raven reliability. I would remove the white walkers and the rest of the magic but that's just me. I prefer realistic.
