  1. Roose and Walder might still try to weasel away once the Tyrells join the Lannisters. However, something as big as the Red Wedding is unlikely when Robb has heirs still alive that the North could rally around.
  2. Frankly, if I was a character in the books that was a brother in the Night's Watch I think I would have voted for Slynt. Simply, Slynt is an experienced commander that has previous experience running the Gold Cloaks. Similarly, Slynt is friends with the power controlling the Iron Throne at the time. Finally, seeing that I am likely some poor shmuck smallfolk that was forced into the Night's Watch that would make Slynt's past appealling to me.
  3. Didn't Aerys only allow the Kingsguard be armed around him?
  4. Jaime seems friendly with the other Westerland Lords and likely squired with some. So he likely had some friends. Doubt it, most would recognize what Aerys was doing was wrong and not want to die. The alchemists seems like pyromanics like Aerys so they likely just wanted to see shit burn.
  5. The alternative was Jaime (and his family/friends) dying in a firey blast. It isn't that morally brave literally anyone else would have tried to stop it.
  6. Wouldn't that just show that Rhaegar was a better jouster than Brandon? It isn't like Brandon lost to some chump, rather he lost to the Crown Prince who likely has the best Master-at-Arms in the realm. I doubt Ned would train Lyanna to joust, as it doesn't seem like Rickard would approve and Ned doesn't seem like one to disobey his father.
  7. I doubt Stannis is aware of all sixteen of Robert's bastards. He likely knows about Edric, Gendry, and Bara and maybe expects there are more but doesn't know where they are.
  8. Do you mean by Westeros? Probably. Mace isn't just a puppet, rather he is actually very much in charge. Mace isn't going to support someone that has a grudge against him and who is married into a family that wants his titles.
  9. Stannis sure was duty driven when he abandoned Robert. Why would Renly want to be king eventually when he can be king now? No problem, welcome to the board. If you highlight the text you want you can get a box entitled Quote Selection that you can click if you want to quote something while naming the individual. You can also just click the quotion mark on top of the post box if you don't care about identify the name of the person you are quoting. I would just split up the quotes into different boxes aka click quote for one passage then write your response before quoting another section and so forth.
  10. I don't know if it was here or reddit, but I once saw someone argue that Stannis is unique genius in realizing the value of archers because there is a single mention of archers training on Dragonstone while that is never mentioned for Renly and others so their archers must not train.
  11. I am just saying Gregor and his men seem like the type that would just refer to someone as gay as an insult.
  12. I don't know if I would say they knew but rather they were just using it as a slur.
  13. I think there is just a habit of naming famous battles and trying to pretend they were the same.
  14. While not directly military strategy related my favorite hypocrisy I ever seen is some Stannis essay try to argue that Renly is more guilty of kinslaying than Stannis.
