    The Frey civil war.

    I demand a parade

    Dunk is not true knight. How does it affect story?

    Robb worships the Old Gods, and there is no indication in the books that he was knighted. End of.

    If Theon had died in place of the Karstark boys...

    Yeah, he unleashed his plan after theon comes, but I got the distinct impression he had already made his decision. Agreed that it doesn't matter much.

    I wouldn't be surprised if a king could, but as it's not really a tradition in the North, I doubt a non-knighted Stark would do it. It's too linked to the Faith.

    Is it allowed for women from Asshai to become shadowbinder?

    Of course. This is the last place I would expect someone to advance a conjecture based theory with no evidence

    The Frey civil war.

    This is the second thread you've awarded me. When's the ceremony?

    It is known... Thank God someone else said it! I had no idea this was even a theory, let alone that it was assumed that everyone agreed with it.

    I took that to mean that Robb could have it arranged, by instructing one of his followers, who is a knight, to knight the boy. I don't think the son of the Lord of Winterfell could knight someone.

    I don't know about that. When Theon arrives the longships are already gathered, and Balon seems to have already made up his mind about what he was going to do.

    Mance Rayder violated guest rights!

    I think there might be more Northern lords in on the Glover/Manderly conspiracy. To what degree I don't know. There are Northern lords openly defying the Boltons with Stannis, and others playing both sides. How linked up all that is is at the moment an open question of course. Sorry, yes it is in TWOIAF, and I agree it doesn't make it irrelevant to others. It's a matter of degrees. I think we're on the same page there. That's not a bad idea, but whether many Riverlords would actually buy it is a different question. Most would see it as a blatant blame shift. I don't know about that. Lords seem to have pretty much carte blanche to exact justice, including capital punishment, on their inferiors. Any idea of guest right would muddy the waters somewhat. In a literal sense, once someone is living and working somewhere, they're no longer really a guest, they're a resident. Exactly. He was their guest. If they were in Riverrun, and Edmure or Robb sentenced Walder to death for some kind of treachery, that wouldn't be a violation of guest right. Lord Karstark's execution wasn't a violation of guest right.

    Things you found oddly amusing

    Daario: "That was a great Christmas dinner. As you know, I count no day as lived unless I have loved a woman, slain a foeman, and eaten a fine meal." Joy Hill, rolls eyes, mutters: "What a knob."

    Quite, though come to think of it, I can just see my sister bringing home a bloke like that.

    I'm here to serve :-)

    If my reading of the law is correct (I've not yet passed the bar in the North, but I have a license to practice in the iron islands), Jon crossed the line as soon as he decided to put himself at the head of an army marching south. What do you think the other options are other than assassination? The LC is like a pope rather than a prime minister. He's elected but then that's the end of it. As to Marsh, he saw a letter from Tywin favouring Slynt, and reacted to it, but I don't think he's in cahoots with anyone. Cersei never gave any indication of any cahooting. I think the iron throne and lords generally are expected to enforce the customs of the NW, ie, kill deserters, etc. But they are expected not to drag brothers into civil conflict like Porch did with Yoren. Still, the NW vows are their vows. Noone else is bound by them.
