  1. I would guess that the reason is that Yoren has been a devout Nights Watchmen for years and has successfully brought many loads of recruits in this manner for years, and would not be suspected of deserting. So in essence his inability to arrive with the recruits would be seen as extremely unusual than the expected outcome. I doubt they would send someone south to recruit that had dubious intentions of returning.

    Heresy 219 and a whisper of Winter

    There are many examples. For one, Ser Waymar's sword hilt after his fight with our first Other.

    Heresy 218 a brief walk on the dark side

    It does to me as well. Have to agree with this a great deal. Even to the point that Ashara seems out of the question as well because her traits may throw a problem into the gene pool. Why not Whylla? Maybe she was of the North?....Or maybe she was Salty Dornish?.... Maybe Ned fell into a situation like his son did. Wounded and fell in love with the woman who cared for him? Ned lying all in all is not a common thing, so maybe Wylla is the truth all along.Personally I believe Ned's one lie is being the KotLT, and due to the situation and anguish it caused, made Ned more Ned than he was already.
  4. OK..........does it matter how much LF was trained? He was unable to pull off the Bronn tactic because he lacked the ability.
  5. Yet, you are debating points I never made. Here's a simple way to settle it. Go train MMA for a while, hell, give it a few years. Go fight Conner McGregor. See how it works out and you have your answer.
  6. No, it doesn't mean Petyr was untrained, but that is not the point of the thread. Read the thread title.
  7. Sorry if I am reviving a thread that should die (though I do love joining in a discussion where people doggedly fight against the obvious answer,) but the answer is fairly simple. Peter was incapable of doing so. His opponent was faster, stronger, more experienced, more skilled, more physically capable. End of story. Watch an Average Joe try to hit a major league pitcher, or an Average Joe try to stop a pro soccer player from scoring, or an Average Joe try to tackle an NFL running back and you have your answer. Quite simply he lacked the physical ability to do so.

    Why did George give daenerys everything

    Are we nitpicking at this point? Is there a point to it?

    Why did George give daenerys everything

    I have, have you? Do slavers not put their slaves through many of the same things?

    Why did George give daenerys everything

    How much death and destruction have slavers caused? Do we know? How does the amount of time in power equate to the immorality of their actions?

    Why did George give daenerys everything

    Well, I don't see why it is a completely foolish comparison...care to explain why?

    The execution of Janos Slynt was spot on vol 2

    I have to say, hadn't checked this site in quite a while, and the original thread just intrigued me to respond when I did read it. It amazes me the lengths some will go through to spin Janos Slynt as a victim. He's like Jesus reborn after 6+ years without a book from GRRM. The Seven save Janos Slynt, the martyr of the NW.

    Not sure why you are commenting on the amount that was written and the quote rather than the topic at hand, and more specifically what I said. If you must know, I had snipped it but when I posted it the whole quote came back.

    Being very obtuse aren't we? Holding one trying to be honorable to an a highly uncomprimising standard, yet another who has no honor to very loose standards?

    Irrelevant, Jon was the LC. Regardless of what Janos' feeling were, he was obligated to obey. It is not a democracy.
