    Wiki Errors

    Ah, the ASOS Appendix mentions "GRAZDAN MO ULLHOR, an old slave trader, very rich". Do we need an article for the fourth Grazdan if we don't know anything more about him?

    I would suggest disambiguating the identified characters in ASOS Daenerys III as "Grazdan (fat)", "Grazdan (tall)", and "Grazdan (old)"; I don't think the fourth is described.

    The ironborn in the Greyjoy chapters wear mail and boiled leather (and Asha and Victarion have plate).

    How did certain families get Valyrian steel?

    https://asearchoficeandfire.com/ is quite useful when searching for excerpts. For Ice, I found: For Lady Forlorn, Sansa thinks:

    Jon does think of Longclaw as dark when he first receives it. Benjen mentioned Runcel Hightower to Jon, at least.

    Small Questions v. 10106

    The Guardians of Order RPG (2005) lists the Bar Emmons, Celtigars, Masseys, and Velaryons as bannermen of Dragonstone, while the Blounts, Brunes, Chelsteds, Farrings, Hayfords, Kettleblacks, Rosbys, Rykkers, Stokeworths, and Slynts are connected with King's Landing. The Green Ronin RPG (2009), on the other hand, associates the Bar Emmons, Celtigars, Sunglasses, and Velaryons with Dragonstone,. The book has the Blackfyres, Blounts, Boggs, Brunes, Buckwells, Byrches, Bywaters, Cargylls, Caves, Chelsteds, Chytterings, Crabs, Cresseys, Darklyns, Edgertons, Farrings, Follards, Gaunts, Hardys, Hartes, Hayfords, Hoggs, Hollards, Kettleblacks, Langwards, Mallerys, Mannings, Masseys, Pyles, Pynes, Rambtons, Rollingfords, Rosbys, Rykkers, Stauntons, Stokeworths, Thornes, and Wendwaters grouped with the capital. edit: The RPG books aren't canon, but some info may have been relayed by Ran.

    World of Ice and Fire App Update

    The "Daenerys Targaryen" entry misspells Lhazareen as "Lhazreen".

    Was Robb drugged?

    The closest I can find is from AFFC Cersei VIII, "I don't recall the woman's name. Something long and eastern and outlandish. The smallfolk used to call her Maggy."

    Robb’s War Was The Most Just Of Them All.

    Yep, I agree with all of that. Lord Damon Marbrand isn't mentioned aside from the ASOS Appendix; maybe he was on campaign with Tywin? Willem Frey, a son of the Lannister-aligned Ser Cleos, served as a page at Ashemark, so George could have included him as well. I wonder how Maege Mormont sends the cattle back to Riverrun, since the Golden Tooth guards the River Road and Deep Den guards the Goldroad. Maybe the Tumblestone valley?

    Robb’s War Was The Most Just Of Them All.

    My reading has been that George is referencing events in the westerlands in this excerpt, not in the riverlands. George is just using Robb's letter to explain to the reader that Robb is having some success while off-page in the west, and then he gives a few more examples of Robb's continued success in ACOK Catelyn V. Although this is the first mention of Ashemark in ASOIAF, George may have chosen it because readers might remember Addam Marbrand from AGOT (and Addam is reintroduced a few chapters later in ACOK Arya VIII). The AGOT appendix lists the Marbrands as being a principal house of the west, so George is showing that Robb's campaign is hurting one of Tywin's stronger bannermen. I've assumed that the other, unnamed castles belonged to lesser lords / landed knights who aren't particularly relevant. The Map of the South from ACOK is pretty barebones in places, so George might not have even decided for himself where exactly Robb achieved his victories. George once said, "Simply because someone isn't mentioned doesn't mean they are not there", so I've assumed that goes for locations as well.
