  1. I think this would make the books too childish
  2. Only two books and a hundred arc to finish. I think Meeren's arc is the worst. How can Daenerys sail to Westeros while there's so many plots in Essos?
  3. Balon's strategy made sense. His fault was political. He should've accepted Joffrey's claim and asked for lands in the North as a reward. Robb lost the war when he betrayed the Freys. He would never be able to conquer the North back without Lannister support.
  4. 40k is in a entirely new level. It's not possible to compare the two. I don't think these TVtrope entries are correct at all either. Abaddon isn't some mindless villain whose sole purpose is to kill people
  5. No. They're a army. It's more akin to the barbarian invasions than whatever immigration issue your country is facing now.
  6. I don't think so. They have higher living standards as slaves than as freemen
  7. But that was because Bloodraven(as the HotK) tainted the throne's reputation with betrayal
  8. Kingship is not his duty. He's bastard. Eddard's or Rhaegar's he's still a bastard.
  9. My headcanon is that Jon Arryn is not the honourable man people think he is. He promised a royal marriage to Tywin in exchange of killing Rhaegar's children
  10. The nobility's profession is war. They're supposed to train and equip soldiers even in times of peace, and knights own their own horses.
  11. This really depends on what GRRM intends to do in the situation. It's said that it takes a long time to build a host in the North(remember how the North only joined the Dance with Dragons when the war was basicaly over?) and yet Robb created one in what, half a year? And this including levies from distant lands like Bear Island and Karhold. I suppose Tywin's strenght wasnt much greater than during the RR. Living on a pile of gold allows you to buy provisions and equipments for a large host in a short time.
  12. Yes, that must be why she was kept in a tiny tower in the mountains instead of Dragonstone or some other luxurious palace.
  13. He assumed the obvious. Lyanna was kept in Dorne, far from family and friends. Why would that be? Lady Barbrey wasnt bethroted at the time. In fact, her father was actively trying to get her married with a Stark.
  14. Not him, but yes he should've known. Raping highborn ladies that are already bethroted to another great lord which also happened to be the ward of another great lord is bound to have consequences. Maybe Brandon was a bit rash, but defiance should have been expected.
  15. The fool ruined everything when he kidnapped Lyanna. All he need to do now is avoid facing Robert in single combat.
  16. I think thralls are not considered slaves because they cannot be sold or bought
  17. Lack of farmlands is why they're poor, not the old way
  18. I think the iron price is more of an ideal than a reality. We know that the ironborn trade with the mainland because there are merchant ships on Lordsport at the beggining of Balon's second rebellion. I think the iron price is just a extra prejudice(which exists in most of Westeros as well) agains't merchants
  19. I always supposed that moon tea had other uses as well, and Cersei cutting Pycelle prevented him from explaining why Margaery requested it.
