    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.

    Stannis, the first lie and the false light

    He's a believer. He burned his own men for the crime of cannibalism.

    This is true.

    Greatest battle commanders at the start of ASoIaF

    At the start of A Game of Thrones: Khal Drogo Robert Baratheon Randyll Tarly At the end of A Dance with Dragons: Barristan Selmy Randyll Tarly Daenerys Targaryen
  19. My favorite for the younger, more beautiful queen is Daenerys Targaryen. The list is really shorter. It's down to Daenerys Targaryen and Margaery Tyrell.

    The Karstark Probrem

    Robb messed up worse than Karstark. He broke his sworn oaths to an important ally. Which is worse than anything Karstark did. Robb really hurt his cause and endangered the lives of his bannermen. Robb didn't flog himself for his own stupidity. He should have forgiven Karstark.
  21. The Winds of Winter will be a time of chaos. So there will be many people, regardless of claim, who will try to put their bums on the iron throne. Let's begin with the temps who will be in Westeros at that time: Stannis is not going to get within a mile of the throne. He already died in the north. Shireen is not gong to make back to the south. She dies in the north. Myrcella will die in Dorne. Aegon/Young Griff has a chance to sit on the Iron Throne for a brief time. He will sit the throne by the middle of the book. His armies will defeat the Lannisters. Jon is dead, but he might come to life. He stays in the north. He totally made a mess of things at the wall. He is the worst choice for ruler. Essos: Queen Daenerys will start uniting the Dothraki people into one khalasar, thus fulfilling the prophecy. She will use the Dothraki to fight the slavers. I think she will win the Iron Born to her side too. Edric Storm is a bit player in the scheme of things. We may never hear about this guy again.

    The Karstark Probrem

    Holding a Karstark hostage is just a terrible idea for someone in so weak a position as dumbass Robb.. That's not how to treat bannermen who followed the stinky Stark ass down south to rescue a man who for all the kingdom knows is guilty of treason. Ooopps, well, maybe Robb would do something this stupid. After all, he betrayed his most valuable ally.

    [spoilers] Aerea

    They are firewyrms. The larvae of the firewyrms. Martin got his inspiration from "Aliens."

    The Karstark Probrem

    You are missing something. Holding a Karstark hostage is not going to keep them fighting. They will only look for ways to take Robb from behind. Robb messed up when he killed Karstark. You never want to alienate your own support. Robb had this naive concept of his honor. What it was was pride. Robb himself broke an oath and expected to get away with it. He should have forgiven Rickard Karstark.
