  1. I think Kyle the Cat, Glendon Ball and ser Eustace Osgrey say their lines on the "white worm" just to depict small folk dumb talk. Same with Tyrion who's said to be the worst of the Lannisters, a true monster, while he was probably the most humane one. I'd add that no matter how fair man Aenys Blackfyre seemed to be, his election could have resulted with series of executions of Targaryens and Bloodraven himself.
  2. Thank you for explanation. So Clegane fears fire and thats why he will fight fire breathing monster. He scorns knighthood and thats why hell become a knight. Interesting. I am not buying the part with Sansa and Robert Strong
  3. I think he means pointing to Clegane killing a dragon. "Someone told them" - that's the point. I think the sentence is humoristic as the people believed in fairytales, where knights killing dragons exist. Story of Serwyn is a legend from the age of heroes as far as I remember. A knight from the times before knights appeared. How many cases of knights killing dragons were there since the conquest when dragons and knights meet for the first time? Id check it in wiki, but seems its down. If Clegane is to kill dragon shooting ballista or leading angry mob with pikes against entangled beast - then OK.
  4. I see your point, but I disagree - still it is (too) far reaching speculation, based on some symbols. Dany has dragons (well.. almost), kingdom to recover, and those who stand in her way, that's all I know. Nowhere I have claimed anything like that. Fire is just as good / evil as the one who uses it. Same with dragon, it's just a tool. The same dragon carried the best king ever and empty headen villian. Moreover I doubt if Sandors conversion changed his mind about knighthood. Id rather expect he never takes out his sword again than become a knight.

    Poll: Aurane Waters' Endgame

    He is an ambitious lad - part of background and not much more. I think his game will end miserably.

    Who is going to get poisoned by the mushrooms?

    I might have missed something, but I thought Tyrion drowned Nurse in the soup or strangled him. One does not say "no" just because sb talks about soup's ingredients (mushrooms seem to be rather common part of diet). Tyrion found the mushrooms while with hangover of his life and made himself believe he might escape eating them, but I am not sure if they even were lethal. They just looked as if they were, but maybe all you could get eating them would be a diarrhea (like in most cases with funky looking shrooms). What I am pretty sure of is that Yezzan died of the pale mare.

    Do the people of Westeros understand money

    I recall Dunk discussing prices of transport by a ferry through the Gods Eye with an innkeeper. He remembered that some years ago a price for a person had been X pennies and for a horse Y pennies and since then the prices increased to Z and W (he even thought to himself something like "everything is more expensive nowadays"). Dunk is an illiterate commoner, so it seems people of Westeros understand prices pretty well.
  9. In comparison with dragon most creatures are weak. Who are the weak the dragon would attack and why Clegane would want to protect them? I assume a t first the dragons will be used against Lannisters, afterwards against the Others. Do you think Sandor will rejoin the Lannisters or become zombiefied?
  10. 1. No, I would love to see it in the books, but I do not think this will happen. 2. Why should he kill a dragon? The idea seems totally random. No.

    Top 10 Fighters, 281 AC Edition

    In the part you quoted I was only referring to the picture you mentioned - Victarion on horse, taking part in tourney perhaps. Not very probable. He is very strong, so he dangles heavy axe and wears heavy armour, it does not take to be very skilled at melee for such a guy to wipe men from deck, where there's no space to dance. Somehow he reminds me of Dunk btw.

    Top 10 Fighters, 281 AC Edition

    I doubt if he was knight at all. Correct me if I am wrong but knighthood is somehow connected with the faith of 7. Moreover, knight on the Iron Islands seems to be rare phenomenon - there was a guy called "the knight" among the Ironborn as far as I remember. They have no good horses on the Islands and it is said they make lousy riders I think his bravery and strenght plus battle axe make him dangerous on ship's deck, but not necessarily in even top 20 fighters

    First of his/her name

    BTW I'm curious why 3 Freys were given Targaryen first names?

    First of his/her name

    Depends on how close to the real world history it should go. Among kings of Poland there were Jan I, Jan II and Jan III of 3 different houses/dynasties, so I think there might have been general rule to keep the order of numbering, regardless of dynasty.
