    Heresy 213 Death aint what it used to be

    Why should they be interested in the Thenns ?

    Heresy 213 Death aint what it used to be

    Hmm. We know that the Thenns live far up in the north and they say they had to flee from WW. So either 1) they are lying. Which would make them suspicious in out big consiracy. 2) they are not lying. However they have fought and lost to the WW. So they must have been a target where fear may not be helping (they fought). While we may have the impression that the WW are after the NW and create fear, we also have the Thenns. A tribe under immense migration pressure. That pressure does not come from fear alone.

    UK Politics: This Country is Going to the Moggs

    It's kind of mental, if you want to be a trader nation with a history of colonies aligned to different economic zones and then reject different economic zones. Take Gibraltar, in what efficient world should Gibraltar be aligned with the Uk's economic zone instead of Spain's ? Like import fish from Scotland because Spain .... The entire decision making is fear driven at every stage. Fear fueled the referendum and fear will fuel the outcome of the negotiations.

    Heresy 213 Death aint what it used to be

    Let's say it all together: "we are all individuals". Robb has made it very clear by decapitating Rickard Karstark. I don't think the idea of "bad guys" vs "good guys" is something GRRM would use. If Brandon the Builder is a contract breaker and then there is the "black goat of the Stark flock", I wouldn't be surprised.
  5. No. If you pay close attention to the story, you will find that the Kingdom was called "Kingdom of the Mountain and the Vale". It's a double kingdom of the vale and the mountain. And it is established as early as the first book. "I might have expected that," Catelyn said. Small wonder there; Lysa was still young, and the kingdom of Mountain and Vale made a handsome wedding gift. "Will Lysa take another husband?" A Game of Thrones - Catelyn VI In comparison to that, the Lord Protector is called "Lord Protector of the Vale". Now I do not know if this is a mistake in the books, however I think we can somehow conclude that the mountain clans belong to the kingdom of the mountain. My best bet is that the name was kept after Aegon's conquest, but the Lord is actually only from the Vale.

    Hoster clearly has the wrong sources. He needs better sources, he needs the list of the Night's Watch and a list from the Citadel about the Maesters at the Wall. He needs a list of the Oldtown High Septons. The books are clearly at the Citadel, there is just nobody to research them. It's not blutty, it is just to studied. In comparison to the old tongue. We know of no document in that language. And btw., while we are once again at Sam's NW commander list. How did they translate the old commander names into andal ?

    Maybe he is just not educated and speculates like an idiot without studying the issue. He claims that no one knows when the Andals crossed the narrow sea. Then look it up Hoster. Don't moan like a lazy man. This guy is a clown. the problem is not the andal invasion, because you read andal, cross reference andal buildings and king lists, cross reference it with Bravoosi history and so on. The faith of the seven is also a great starting point. He can easily get the point when Oldtown changed to the faith of the seven. He can do it, the reader can't. Maybe the faith even counts the years. We have no problem become some church after which the faith is modeled counted the years. And we can cross reference with roman and greek calendars. Hoster ist really a clown. The real problem is not that this idiot cannot read latin, the problem is what was before latin.

    The Stark sucession crisis and Arya the unlikely

    1) Stannis preferes Jon as heir to Winterfell, not as heir for Robb's Kingdom. As I said in the second sentence you quoted, we are talking about different things. At this point Bran is a Viserys type of character. He is a prince of a (maybe) fallen kingdom. No other titles have been granted by Robb, as far as I am aware. 2) Doran Martell literally is a crippled Lord.

    If the Wall explodes, how much volume would be thrown in the air compared to a large vulcano ?

    The Stark sucession crisis and Arya the unlikely

    I don't know. The Nymeria links are strong with Arya and when my theory is true, Arya will replace fake Arya, deal with Ramsay in a way that will be a horror for Ramsay and just pretend for the rest of her life she is Jeyne Poole, posing as Arya.

    So what you are saying is, that it has to be bigger than the Doom.

    Nymeria is in the riverlands.

    The Stark sucession crisis and Arya the unlikely

    "Lastly, King Joffrey and the Queen Regent must renounce all claims to dominion over the north. Henceforth we are no part of their realm, but a free and independent kingdom, as of old. Our domain shall include all the Stark lands north of the Neck, and in addition the lands watered by the River Trident and its vassal streams, bounded by the Golden Tooth to the west and the Mountains of the Moon in the east." A Clash of Kings - Catelyn I

    Good thing Stannis did not make his summer child daughter his heir ... uuups.

    There is no conflict. The problem is that we talk about different things. Robb's Will was about King Robb declaring for a successor. This has to be accepted in all parts of his realm, including the Riverlands, so Jon is not the answer. Arya is the logical choice as a half Tully and not Lannister. However the situation was not clear, as the reports about Rickon and Bran were unclear and Arya is missing. However, Bran has a title, he is prince of Winterfell, meaning he is the crown prince. The Will is only neccessary if Bran is dead. And I expect this as a clause in the document. Now Jon and his claim for Winterfell is a different thing.
