    Regarding Planetos

    I've seen plenty of maps of Westeros and it's surrounding regions, but have never seen it in a globe form yet. So I have wondered a lot about it's layout. Where exactly do we think the equator is located? Somewhere near Dorne or South of Westeros completely? If so that leaves pretty much all of the Southern Hemisphere outside of a small stretch of Southyros completely unmapped. Also, what do we think the size of Planetos' globe is exactly? Similar to Earth or smaller? I've always seen at as a smaller planet compared to ours. Also if the land of Always Winter is around the North Pole than can't it be possible that it connects to the lands North of Asshai on the opposite hemisphere?

    Arya

    So did Bran give Arya the valerian steel dagger knowing that she would be the one to kill the NK?

    Will the NK be defeated next...

    I would imagine he survives episode 3, probably last until arouond episode 5. so battle in Winterfell, retreat. 2nd battle, retreat final battle. last episode, tying up loose ends w/ Kings Landing.

    Samwell's response?

    Did it seem a little out of character for him to be so upset about his father's fate? The guy basically disowned him by sending him to the wall and he repayed him by stealing their ancestral sword, now he cares that he was killed for not bending the knee? Anyone else caught off guard by that.

    Samwell's response?

    they don't show that after the initial airing.

    Robert's Kingsguard

    Stupid question maybe, but outside of Barristan and Jaime(who are holdovers from Aerys' Kingsguard, why are any of these guys worthy of being Kingsguard in the first place? It seemed like when the Targaryens were in charge the Kingsguard are a proud and esteemed honor filled with great knights, but Robert's Kingsguard seem to be mediocre warriors at best and cravens at their worst. All you have to do is look through the Stornlands, Westerlands, Reach and Vale and you could probably find a dozen knights at least who are better fit for Robert's Kingsguard and knowing his wife is a Lannister and his hand is an Arryn, he should've had his pick of the best of those 3 Kingdoms alone(counting his own). Is there any more insight into who was put in charge of picking out Robert's KG or why the men who made it up are there in the first place? Comparing Whent, Hightower and Dayne to Trant, Blount and Moore is not even a competition. Maybe Arys Oakhart is a step above those guys, but still it just seems to be lacking completely. And being a usurper who may not have fully trusted some of his people, he probably should have made sure his KG was far above and beyond knowing he could be crossed at anytime.

    Robert's Kingsguard

    I wouldn't say they are completely incompetent. I would just say most of them are less than morally fit to fulfill the roles of a Kingsguard member. Things like the Hand of the King getting attacked at the Blackwater or even Robert's death may have been avoidable if they had less corrupt KG members.

    Robert's Kingsguard

    That same argument could be used to eliminate Barriston Selmy, yet he's still there.

    Robert's Kingsguard

    The Rebellion is over. Why not bring a Reach knight in if their lord has bent the knee already?

    Robert's Kingsguard

    Possible candidates: Lyn Corbray Addam Marbrand- heir apparent to Ashemark, so probably not. Benjen Stark- second son(at the time of Robert's crowning) Bonifer Hasty- Stormlander Brynden Tully- brother of LP of Riverlands Cortnay Penrose- Stormlander Emmon Cuy- one of Renly's rainbow guard Lyle Crakehall- Westerlands Nestor Royce- Vale Robar Royce- Vale Waymar Royce- Vale, joins NW Take your pick of anyone from the Hightower, Redwyne or Florent families. Beric Dondarrion- lord of a house, so doubtful Jorah Mormont- see above

    Yes.

    Robert and Maester Aemon

    He's a sworn brother of the Night's Watch and has sworn to defend the Wall and protect the kingdom. Whether Robert was aware he was there or not, he has no reason to mess with him as he is in no way a threat to his Kingship and no matter Aemon's feelings towards the king, he knows well enough that he can not interfere with problems within the realm(especially at his advanced age and eyesight).
  14. I guess there is no evidence either way as to which route they would've chose. Maybe if an envoy from the Vale would be going to the Wedding as well with Ned & Robert in tow, they could have met near the Inn at the Crossing and join the party as well. Is there any reason as to why Ned would not have been present at the wedding of his brother if it were to happen?

    TWoW Prologue POV

    Wouldn't mind seeing a POV from either Eastwatch or Hardhome or something as far off as Asshai.
  16. Yeah, it doesn't really add up that if Brandon left Riverrun to catch up with Lord Rickard's host coming to Riverrun, neither party would have to go anywhere near Harrenhall.
  17. They may be spread out, but all these skirmishes are going to add up after a while in diminishing the Stark's numbers. First Rickard taking 200 men to King's Landing, then Robert's Rebellion, then the Greyjoy Rebellion, then Ned taking some of his household guard w/ him to King's Landing, the War of the Five Kings and finally the Red Wedding. Compared to the other great houses, no other family has been involved in so many battles/losses over the past 18 years or so.

    MIA - but not Killed on Page

    wait, people actually think Rhaego could possibly still be alive?
  19. Igziabeher

    Which minor houses do you want to see more of?

    Don't we get the story of the Dondarrion sigil in the first Dunk and Egg story? That Lord was kinda a jerk to Dunk though.

    A Faithful Knight in Winterfell

    I understand there is a huge difference between ward and hostage, but being a ward doesn't imply being a hostage is all I'm saying.

    A Faithful Knight in Winterfell

    I can't believe we need to differentiate between the phrase "earned your spurs" and merely owning a pair of spurs, yet here we are.
  22. Igziabeher

    A Faithful Knight in Winterfell

    No it doesn't, to be someone's ward just means you are under their protection. that is all. The basis for Theon being Eddard's ward and Ned being Jon Arryn's ward can be completely different. but they are still wards nonetheless.

    Poll: Secret Stark Knights

    Even Bran wanted to be a knight and member of the Kingsguard, so that part isn't unbelievable, I just don't think the ruling family of the North would ever forego the old gods for the 7.

    Poll: Secret Stark Knights

    no, but i give it about 2% chance of possibility.

    Regarding Planetos

    so historically, where would Westeros more or less be comparable to our history? the 13th to 15th century roughly? Slightly before the time of Columbus & Magellan?
