    Robb and the Hornwood crises

    The Hornwood sucession crises, was a minor plot that was never deal it, Robb went on to have much bigger problems and the question in hand became irrelevant, but what if he had to deal with the issue, who do you think he would favor? who do you think was the best choice ? and who would you favor? The options being the Manderlys or Umber through marriage with Donella, The manderlys offered Wyllis and Wyman, and the Umbers offered Mors. The Glovers, by legitimazing Larence Snow Tallharst by lady Berena Hornwood Flints and Karstarks by the female line. And the Boltons, Roose has no claims, but the lands are "adjoin, and Roose Bolton is not one to overlook such a chance".

    Viserys does not go east

    Viserys landing on Dorne with the Golden Company during the war of the 5 kings would be very interesting scenario.

    Robb and the Hornwood crises

    Alys was already promised to Daryn. With the prejudice against bastards, and she being older than him, would the Karstarks acept such a match, when they already have their own claim on the land ? Alys is also the probable heir to Karhold, since Harrion is imprisoned, she can probably get better matches.

    Robb and the Hornwood crises

    Seems most people here would go with the soulution that Bran choose. I think that Robb would go with the Tallharts because they have the better claim (being the closest blood related to the last lord), and I think Robb could choose them if forced. Leobald Tallhart could protect the lands, like Rodrik did, he would be a good regent for Brandon Tallhart, that was willing to take the Hornwood name. They are also far away from the Tallhart sucession, Benfred and Eddara comming first. Legitimazing Bastards seems to be troublesome, and not that common. On the other hand I would choose the Kartstarks if I was in Robb's position .Rickards sons died to protect him from Jaime, Harrion was captured, and Rickard was the second one to swear fealty to King Robb. He needed a reward for his sacrifice, either changing hostages for Harrion freedom or giving him the Hornwoods lands.

    When was Theon supposed to go home?

    His favorite place was the castle that his family burned. That is weird behaviour right there Then he choose to public shame Robert, and Elia in one stroke at the tournament, then not happy he takes away Lyanna and let his wife and children at his crazy father's mercy, He started the war and he was dumb enough to try to take Robert head on at the trident, while he left he best bodyguard guarding his dying mistress together with other 2 kingsguard, and this got himself killed. His actions pissed of 3 the great families. (Martell, Stark and Baratheon).
  6. Kings Landing go Kaboom. Jaime is either killed or captured in battle. I doubt that a young Jaime would make any diference in the battle. If killed, Tywin may remain neutral even after the Trident. swer fealty to the man that slayed his son seems odd. Robert marriage with Cersei would also start in a even worse foot if came to happen.

    When was Theon supposed to go home?

    Why should they risk it ? Viserys acording to Barristan showed signs of being mad since early years. Rhaegar was mad, Aerys was madder and Viserys could be the maddest of them all. Robert needed the throne to be secure, otherwise, Viserys could very well go after him later on.
  8. Age comes for all. Tywin is old he is not as willing as a young lord, he already proved himself so he does not need to go out of his way, his bannermen are loyal, he is rulling over the biggest summer ever, he does not had any bigger crises to deal with, and he is rulling the Westerlands, from what we got to see Robb in AGoT through Bran, seems a very busy task. Tywin's biggesct concern during this period is to get Jaime out of KG and find him a bride, so his legacy would be secure.

    Would Robert have been Happier in Stannis’ Position?

    I think Robert would still complain even if everything that he wanted came to happen. He took all pleasures of being king, lived the life the way he wanted, he spended money like no tomorow, went into tournaments, parties, hunting, fucked and drinked himself into a early grave, he traveled around the kingdom and enjoyed the biggest summer in Westerors history while he ignored any advice that went against he will and he never tooked any responsability for his kingship, he let Arryn rule for him. The only big problem of his life was Cersei, and even though she is the worst wife material ever, I don't see any other woman that would be happly married with Robert if his behaviour doesn't change. Even his allegedly children he ignored, he never spend time with his bastards.
  10. When Aegon V son refused to honor a betrothal with the daughter of Lyonel, the former started a small rebellion. If Cersei, Jaime and their children are caught, and executed, I don't see why Tywin would act any diferent. He was the guy that refused to make peace when he was already fighting the whole kingdom during the war of five kings. He left the KL when Aerys took Jaime as a KG, he started a war when Tyrion the son he hates was kidnaped, imagine his reaction when his heir is executed.

    When was Theon supposed to go home?

    Theon would need some IB culture in him if he was going to be their lord when he returned, he was also allowed to still workship the drowed god.. At the very least his mom should be able to visit him, considering she went mad for depression, is surprising that she never did.

    When was Theon supposed to go home?

    At this point Balon is already undermining him. Gave him the sea bitch of all ships, and unrelevant task that wouldn't acomplish him nothing, let Asha mocking him in the hall and put Aeron as a nanny to watch him even in small tasks.
  13. Arthur Peres

    When was Theon supposed to go home?

    He was gone for 8 years, no one knew him or how he was, and most of them didn't knew that he was comming, he also went there incognito without any kind of party or bodyguards. Balon even took the people that knew Theon and send them away, like Dagmer.

    most tragic character

    Theon had a destiny that is worse than death, he saw everything that he hold dear to him striped or destroyed, and he is the cause of it. He was never a Stark and he was rejected by his family, he does not seems to belong anywhere. Even when he pulls of some major victory he is mocked by his sister and left to die, his father prayed for his death. Robb for me is more tragic than Catelyn, he was forced into a position too early, and Catelyn that should be his advicer pretty much left him alone, first staying closed doors with Bran and then by leaving for King's Landing, she also pretty much forces Jon out of winterfell in the moment that Robb may have needed him the most, and then started the war , he is forced into war, where he has to face the most ruthless lord in the kingdom and he wins... only to get his father executed, his family instead of helping him becomes a bigger trouble, with Edmure screwing everything up because of glory, Catelyn going nuts and releasing Jaime. His best friend as far as he knows killed his brothers and torched his castle, he belives Arya is dead. Even when he tries to marry for love he gets killed in the most brutal event in the books so far, and he may even had died twice.

    If we are using Reek then I'm forced to agree with you. But Theon from CoK is the front runner.

    When was Theon supposed to go home?

    I think Ned and Robert would have no problem letting Balon visit Theon. Now that you touched on the subject, it's weird that Theon's mother never showed up to see him. Balon pretty much saw him as good as dead, but Alannys went crazy.
  17. Arthur Peres

    When was Theon supposed to go home?

    I don't disagree with this. But I see Theon as the favorite, without Balon undermining him, Theon has a much easier time becoming Lord of Pyke, he is the front runner, leagues ahead of Asha and Victarion.
  18. Arthur Peres

    When was Theon supposed to go home?

    Balon knows that Theon is a problem for Asha, not the other way around. “I pray god that they killed him, so he cannot stand in Asha’s way.” Aeron himself refuses to follow Asha multiple times. “No woman will ever rule the ironborn, not even a woman such as Asha,” "Balon favored Asha, the child of his body, but a woman cannot rule the ironborn" There also multiple times that she is dicarted by other Ironborns. “Balon’s sons are dead,” Red Ralf Stonehouse had argued, “and Asha is a woman." “This girl forgets herself,” snarled Pinchface Jon Myre. “Balon let her believe she was a man.” “Balon’s sons are dead,” cried Ralf the Limper. “All I see is Balon’s little daughter!”

    When was Theon supposed to go home?

    Asha is no real threat to Theon. Once he becomes Lord he can just marry her off like Euron did. Common folk also do not matter much. Once Theon becomes lord behaviour would change. Dagmar one of the best fighters in the island respected Theon even when Balon was undermining him. Sure, but in this scenario Theon is not the King of the Iron Island, but the lord of pyke. Theon was also the most cautions of the Greyjoys when it comes to Euron.

    When was Theon supposed to go home?

    Only Aeron and Balon showed prejudice against Theon. With Balon dead Theon would be Lord and Aeron couldn't do anything about it. Victarion was willing to serve under Euron... He would sure serve Theon. Theon would have the Harlaw and he coul marry another big bannerman to get more support. Balon was the one that undermined Theon the most. Without him Theon would had a clear path.

    Biggest Mistake Made by Robb

    Jeyne by far... Sending Theon looking for a alliance with IB is plausable, and this thing went too overblow on Robb. Ramsey invading Hornwood lands, being captured alive, Rodrik lefting Wintefell without garrison, Theon going against his orders and taking winterfell with 20 men, releasing Ramsey, faking Bran and Rickon's death, Bran and Rickon not going anywhere in the north to prove to be alive... the whole thing was a overblow impossible to predict, beyond everything possible. With Jeyne Robb knew what he was doing and knew that he would loose the Freys in a war where he already was outnumbered. There is no execuse for that.
  22. Arthur Peres

    Do you think Balon got off too light?

    Anyone. as the Ironborn themselfs tell us. After beating Balon Robert could give power to another house and they would be more greatful to him. Balon only resented him. “Where is it written that our king must be a kraken?” Drumm began. “What right has Pyke to rule us? Great Wyk is the largest isle, Harlaw the richest, Old Wyk the most holy. When the black line was consumed by dragonfire, the ironborn gave the primacy to Vickon Greyjoy, aye... but as lord, not king.”

    Why is Doran making terrible mistakes concerning his kids?

    To be fair the information she got was that she was disinherited in favor of Quentyn, he was in a secret mission across the sea and that Doran was keeping it as secret from her, Doran is good at doing nothing about Oberyn and Elia's death and he does not want to go to war against the IT. The idea of bringing a mercenary company is weird since they just have to dispose of her, assassination would be easier, but she had reasons to be paranoid.

    Why is Doran making terrible mistakes concerning his kids?

    Once the heir is stripped of the sucession usually it ends with him getting killed or exiled, so yeah, she had plenty of reasons to be worried. We are no short of examples of this Roose tell us that anyone that won the Kingsmoot of the Iron Island would thank them for executing Theon. Roose also tell us that Ramsey will kill every future brother in order to be his heir. Aegon II killed Rhaenyra in the dance of dragons. Maegor killed Aegon and fought against Aenys. As SeanF said, you dont let someone with a better claim than you alive. Everything Arianne knows is, her father does not cared about her, she tried to get reactions from him in every turn and she the conclusion she get was "He is good at doing nothing". Doran then sends Quentyn to be fostered by his strongest bannerman, and refused her the bethrotal to Edmure, She also finds a letter saying that Quentyn was suposed to rule Dorne. She had plenty of reasons to be worried. Is not just her right to inherit that are at risk but also her life.

    And that result got his son killed. Not a great plan.
