    Aegon VI as a ruler

    How did Rhaegar get his reputation as a warrior?

    Mystery Knight had an example of Uthor running his scam. Can anyone prove it was Rhaegar who won those tournaments? Who was under that helmet?

    Tactical Overview: Golden Company

    The Tyrells are fighting in familiar terrain. Would they be so silly as to not take that into account?

    Catelyn's are the interesting chapters of the Starks. I much prefer hers to Jon's and Arya's boring chapters. Action is not the selling points of a Catelyn chapter. It may not be everyone's cup of tea.

    Why Does Darkstar Matter?

    Look at Ice and Fire as a collection of many individual stories. They each have their own protagonists and antagonists. The Iron Born have Asha vs. Euron. Dorne then has Doran vs. the war party. The war party are the Sand Snakes and Darkstar. He is the antagonists to Doran and peace. The Arianne mission will lead to an alliance between the Martells and Young Griff. Darkstar and the Sand Snakes will be their opposition.
  6. The Martells by poison. It's a woman's weapon and the snakes want blood.

    Seeing the bigger bigger picture.

    I guess it's to value life. Survive instead of throwing into unnecessary risk. But sometimes, death is preferable to the agony of living.

    Is Young Griffs invasion filler?

    Aegon, call him young Griff is you wish, is the character needed to replace Jon Snow.

    Game: You are Littlefinger, what do you do?

    Too many people underestimate Littlefinger. That is mostly true for Sansa;s fans. Don't you think Littlefinger knows her better than you all do? He does. He will use her to get something he wants and then he will dispose of her like he did with Dontos. He's doing what he can based on what he thinks is happening. Speculating that the winter will cause food shortage and he wants to have enough food to use against the other kingdoms. He will need to get rid of any extra mouths to have to feed. A war among the families in the Eyrie might not be a bad thing. Too many consumers is the enemy of long-term survival when food is scarce.

    Can Aegon I conquer Europe in the 15th century?

    Aegon would also have gunpowder and cannons. The same level of technology as his enemies.
  11. From Robert Baratheon in the first volume to Jon Snow in the most recent. They were all killed to move the plot forward in a satisfactory manner. The author wanted to affect his readers on a more emotional level. They were not taken too soon. They were taken when their role in the story was complete. Robert's head may be on Gregor's shoulder and Jon could come back as an ice wight but their roles as living humans are done.

    Is death good? Why fight the Others?

    Females give birth and thus life among the living. The Others take the dead and control their corpses. It's different.

    Is death good? Why fight the Others?

    Craster treat them as if they are his gods. "Gods" demand sacrifice.

    Dany's dream about the Trident

    The armies of ice that she will burn are northmen and rivermen turned to wights. The Starks will be among those ice zombies. I think it will go well.

    Stannis, the first lie and the false light

    Lie 1 = Stannis is Azor Ahai. He is not. Lie 2 = Aegon/Young Griff is the heir to the Iron Throne. He is not. Lie 3 = Jon is a Targaryen. He is not. Daenerys is all three: Azor Ahai, heir to the Iron Throne, and true Targaryen. She slays those lies one by one.
