  1. Yep, like Sansa wanting a hero to behead Janos Slynt being foreshadowing for Jon killing him with Longclaw (when GRRM originally had Janos being hanged). From 1999, for instance, "There is no "master outline" for the series, just a half-dozen pages of very rough notes that are largely out of date." I expect some theorists will be disappointed by the end of the series (like some viewers of LOST were). As GRRM has oft observed, the tale grew in the telling and sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
  2. Aerys also killed Mallisters, who are Tully bannermen, potentially making Hoster less inclined to support the Targaryens. Catelyn feels her father still had to be negotiated into rebellion, however.

    Thanks, I'll keep it in mind!

    So instead of it would be better to this?

    Quotes involving more than one <br> break aren't displaying correctly (in my Chrome Portable), with the final line lacking italics and not being aligned with the preceding lines. Examples include Moqorro & Tyrion speaking in the "Euron Greyjoy" article and Balon & Theon speaking in the "Balon Greyjoy" article. The ''Davos Seaworth" article has examples with Melisandre & Davos, Jared & Davos, and Cersei's small council.

    Why did Walder send Stevron to war?

    "Ancient Lord Estermont" also accompanies Renly and then Stannis in ACOK.

    No fleet at all after Brandon the Burner??

    FYI, Rodrik Cassel advises the Manderlys and Umbers to build a fleet to help deal with wildlings in ACOK. In AGOT Ned has Catelyn relay the message that Wyman is fortify White Harbor. Davos observes the stronger fortifications in ADWD.

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Yep, v3.1_r5, but the stormlands chapter still states, "In 282 AC, at the ford of the Trident, Robert Baratheon slew Rhaegar Targaryen, Prince of Dragonstone, and shattered his host ...".

    Small Questions v. 10105

    I just redownloaded my Kindle version from Amazon, but it still shows 282 for that excerpt. I checked my settings with Amazon and Automatic Book Updates are turned on. Has TWOIAF been updated for other formats but not yet with Amazon?

    Yohn Royce was a fool

    The Corbrays are impoverished. And the Waynwoods are also in debt. I don't recall the Royces being poor, however.

    Sounds good to me.

    Is Jon older or younger than Robb?

    So Spake Martin:
  13. Sure there are, they just haven't been important enough thus far to have been included by GRRM on maps. When Catelyn approaches the crossroads inn in AGOT Catelyn V: While not related to this Twins/kingsroad discussion, Barrowton isn't mentioned in the text until ASOS and isn't shown on a map until AFFC.

    Jaqen H'ghar's nonsense

    To be pedantic, "King in the North" and "Warden of the North" are capitalized, and the region is also capitalized in TWOIAF. Within the other publications, however, GRRM has used lower case for the region.

    Military Strengths and More!

    Do you remember where that is mentioned? Sandor tells Sansa, "My grandfather lost a leg, so Lannister paid him for it with lands and a towerhouse".

    The Blackwoods have a market town named Mudgrave.

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Daenerys sees a burning city while within the House of the Undying, but this vision is connected with the Dothraki. Ramsay threatens to burn Barrowton. Melisandre has a vision of destruction, but this is usually conjectured to be Oldtown or Eastwatch.

    From what I can find using the search site, the Andals begin to be referred to as invaders in TWOIAF, not the novels, although the world book does use the term often for them. I haven't found George using the phrase "Andal invasion(s)"; which characters refer to it as such? When possible we should use George's terminology. The corresponding chapter in TWOIAF is titled "The Arrival of the Andals", for example, and characters in the novels refer to the coming of the Andals.

    Might it be better to move "Andal invasion" (phrasing which I haven't found in the books) to "coming of the Andals", "crossing of the Andals", or "arrival of the Andals"?

    Good catch. The Rambtons are pious like Guncer Sunglass, but ACOK and ASOS don't state that Hubard is Guncer's vassal. The ACOK appendix includes Hubard in Stannis's bannermen and sword swords. @Ran's heraldry at The Citadel has the Rambtons in the King's Landing grouping; maybe the Rambtons are from the mainland but Hubard's family serves Stannis?

    Riverlands 2.0

    That matches with this SSM: In ACOK Tywin leaves Amory with a garrison of one hundred westermen, along with the foraging Brave Companions (whose numbers are unknown, IIRC). Aenys Frey's opinion of Harrenhal is that:

    When possible, categories should display the topic's main article first, done by sorting that article with a space key (for example, [[House Stark| ]]). This is in accordance with Wikipedia's WP:SORTKEY: However, some recent edits have been removing that space from categorization, so the spaces should be restored. Also, the {{references}} templates can display content in multiple columns. Recent edits have been defaulting it to a single column by use of {{references}} instead of {{references|2}}, however. While this is not a big deal for short articles with only a few sources, larger articles can appear unwieldy with a single column.

    That sounds like a Pyrrhic victory to me.
