Landed Knight

Landed Knight (6/8)

  1. People die during a rebellion and the Starks started it. Robb and his banners knew the risk but they decided to go to war anyway. There are enough suffering inflicted on the Freys to avenge a violation of custom. The sons of the lord of the house have been systematically and cruelly murdered by LSH and her bitter band of troublemakers. Daenerys Targaryen is not going to approve the murder of the Frey family. She may agree to the executions of Black Walder and Lame Lothar though.
  2. https://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/topic/160093-what-should-become-of-the-dreadfort-and-the-bolton-lands-after-their-defeat/ https://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/topic/160303-house-freys-downfall/ https://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/topic/160376-hope-for-the-frey-family/ Many of the members of this forum would like severe punishment for the Freys and the Boltons. They may want to think about punishment for the Starks and the Lannisters too. These families brought a lot of casualties and suffering to Westeros. Kindly remember that it was Jaime and Cat who started the War Of the Five Kings. It was Robb Stark who chose to march with an army to answer the royal summon. Jon Snow betrayed the Night Watch and started a war with Ramsay. Walder, Roose, and Ramsay are not going to submit themselves for punishment. They will have to be taken by force. Is it worth the cost of many lives to bring them to the Starks' justice? It is not. Stark justice is a depraved version of true justice. Those who start war or about to start one in the name of revenge are punished. Cat, Khal Drogo, Robb, and Jon Snow were all punished because they lost their way. They were putting family before their duty to the kingdom and the small folk. I am waiting for Jaime to get punished. There are justifiable reasons to go to war. Our author is right when he said he would have fought against the Nazi. But revenge is not a good enough reason. There is a time for justice but also for mercy. Another war to extract Lord Roose from his castle will get a lot of people killed. I am not so sure if it's worth the death toll. Lord Walder was severely wronged by Robb Stark. He is not leaving his castle to present himself for judgment. The blood toll to bring him to justice is not justified. What is justice in this case and who decides what is a just response to the red wedding? I don't think Daenerys will execute Lord Walder if the matter came down to a trial. She may execute Lord Roose. It depends on how he presents his defense. Roose killed his lord. Walder killed an ally who betrayed him. There is a clear distinction. Justice will be mocked if the Starks are in charge. The trial, if there is even one, will be a farce. Arya will make Ramsay look compassionate by what she will choose to do to Walder and Roose. Jon will be just as merciless. Jon was willing to go to war for Arya. He cannot and should not be trusted with justice. I am sure Jon will pay whatever the toll in death to get his revenge on the Boltons and the Freys.
  3. The significance of sheep = don't be a sheep, lest you get eaten. Marwyn was talking about the Maesters stuck in dogma. They follow this dogma as sheep follow the flock. They lack original thought. Euron will be at their doorsteps soon. Warlocks and academics are studious but are no match for brute force. Brute force usually wins in Martin's universe.
  4. I love Eastern names. Xaro Xhoan Daxos, Quhuru, Saladhor. I love the names of the Ghiscari in particular. Kraznys mo Naklos Grazdan mo Eraz Skahaz mo Kandaq Reznak mo Reznak The highest among the nobility. Hizdahr zo Lorag Yezzan zo Qaggaz Yurkhaz zo Yunzak Oznak zo Pahl I have noticed this hierarchy. Those on the highest levels among the Ghis have "zo" in the middle. I believe Mr. Martin intended "zo" as an honorific.
  5. The most beautiful woman in the world is Daenerys Targaryen. A woman trained by the Yunkish has to be the sexiest but that is a very different thing from beauty.
  6. She is already on borrowed time. Lady Stoneheart, Arya, and Nymeria can have a brief reunion. I suppose that is possible. They can attack The Twins and exact revenge on the Frey family. Lady Stoneheart and Arya should also die shortly after. Nymeria makes it back to the North with Arya's spirit living inside her and they join Ghost, who will have Jon's spirit inside.
  7. Oaths in Westeros are sacred. Ned, "No man is more dangerous." He was referring to oathbreakers.
  8. It isn't unrealistic to have such a conflict. Fault the weaker house for fighting a stronger house. A weaker house should try peace. The Conquest is the best example. Torrhen saw it immediately and chose to submit.
  9. It was too late for Viserys. He was the chosen heir and Rhaella had already made him King of Westeros. Robert cannot be king while he lives on any part of Westeros. Princess Daenerys can be used to grease the political wheels to bring along the Royalists. I am not willing to put the Targaryen children at the mercy of Robert's dogs. Thank goodness for Ser Willem and his brave companions.
  10. Was Jon wrong to kill Janos Slynt? The correct answer is "yes, Jon was wrong to kill Janos Slynt." Jon gave up any rights to revenge on the moment he took his vows.
  11. The ability to tap magic have always existed in the families from Valyria as well as the First Men. The Rhoynar have their water magic. The Asshai have their dark magic. And so on. It is the Andals who got the short stick. Their religion naturally tried to get rid of what they could not have.
  12. The bond seems to imply that the two are the next closest thing to biological siblings. They do not share DNA. The number of bonds are endless. Robert and Ned are connected by the Foster Bond since they both grew up with the same adoptive family. Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal are bound by the Birth Bond, or Fire Bond. The eggs all hatched on the same fire by the same Mother. All of the hatchlings were bought with the lives of Drogo, Viserys, and Rhaego. The milk bond foretells a future contact between the Daynes and the Starks.
  13. She is a new kind of Ironborn and the future of her people. She is the *Joshua York of her people. A visionary who wants to lead the Ironborn into a more sustainable future of peace. *Joshua York is a leading character in Fevre Dream. It is Asha's fate to confront and defeat her Uncle Euron. I would not mind an Asha + Aurane marriage.
  14. Robb Stark chose love over honor. Walder Frey chose material gain over honor. Something like the R W was bound to happen. Assassination of Robb, Edmure, and Cat was another option.
