    Everyone is a hero of their own story
  4. Uhhhhhhhhhhhh Why the rush to marry quickly? Besides there's like 25+ midlevel houses with suitable wives. Everyone has a daughter to offer to marry to a King. And every potential suitor will want to be a Queen. Lastely Southern Ambitions is OVER. The safest route to go is midlevel or a small respectable house. To avoid a potential takeover. You guys act like there's no other characters...
  5. Why would the fiscally savvy Iron Bank offer so much debt to regime that does not have the tax revenues to remotely have the ability to pay its debts? In the real world, a lot of leaders are aware that the USA looks like it will have trouble paying back all its debt anything soon, but the USA has no trouble getting credit. The reason is three fold. One is that US government can always print more money to pay its debt. Two is that because of steady rate of inflation built into our economy by the Federal Reserve to lubricate the financial system, no matter how big the debt gets, as long as we pay the interest eventually the debt will become worthless. Three most of those people who buy bonds are just acting as intermediaries. They are banks and funds that manage people and business savings. These people don't really want a lot of interest income, they just want to park their savings someplace safe until they need to spend it. So these intermediaries are basically borrowing the money at 0% interest and as long as the US government pays something more than 0% they make a profit. However none of these fundamentals are true in Westeros, yet the Iron Bank kept lending them money. And these savvy bankers are clearly aware that if one regime can pay them back with tax revenue any replacement they come up with can't either. How are they going to get paid? Westeros is feudal system. That means that ultimately all the land belongs to the king. If a king can prove that a particular noble was disloyal he can seize that noble's lands without the other nobles reacting. And that is why backing claimants is a viable strategy. A civil war is a great way to prove that a lot people were disloyal. The new king can repay the Iron Bank with the seized property of the losers.
  6. If you're fighting in Westeros, you should've stick with the Seven. If you're fighting in the North, you should stick with Old Gods. Regardless if you're a atheist. Its true, converting religions will bring more loyal & devout followers. Richard Horpe Clayton Suggs, Corliss Penny, Godry Farring, Malegorn of Redpool, Justin Massey (lolol?), Patrek of Kings Mountain, Narbet Grandison, Perkin Follard. etc So what do you think, Will Mel deliver? Did converting to Rhllor help Stannis' cause? Even though he's the rightful King?

    Riverlands house and military

    The problem with the Riverlands is not because it doesnt have natural defenses as everyone says, its because they have always lacked a strong marshal to pull them together despite their internal conflicts throughout their known history. It was always a area full of petty kings until outside invasions and occupations and annexations...
  13. What are Lannister/Tyrell family reunions like? Is it to similar to the Starks/Tullys/Arryns/Baratheons? crowded, loud & fun?
