    Rant & Rave without Repercussion: Burn It All Edition

    One rant I haven't seen yet : Jon telling Varys the northern army has just passed the Trident and will reach King's Landing in two days. It's official : showWesteros isn't the size of South America, it seems to be the size of er... France, maybe ?

    What was your personal GoT breaking point?

    For me it was the season 4 finale, when Jaime doesn't tell Tyrion about Tysha, though the Ds had Tysha's story told in season 2. It ruins both characters. Tyrion misses the best motivation to kill Tywin and help Daenerys, and Jaime is thrown from the perfect path to redemption GRRM had built for him and the show had followed to this moment.

    Small Questions v. 10105

    AGOT 23, Arya III : "It's for his sake I'm come. Rode hard, I did, near killed my horse the way I drove her, but I left the others well behind." "The others?" Yoren spat. "Sellswords and freeriders and like trash. That inn was full o' them, and I saw them take the scent. The scent of blood or the scent of gold, they smell the same in the end. Not all o' them made for King's Landing, either. Some went galloping for Casterly Rock, and the Rock lies closer. Lord Tywin will have gotten the word by now, you can count on it." Seems like Yoren is the first to bring the news of Catelyn capturing Tyrion in King's Landing. However, earlier in the same chapter, Varys tells Illyrio this : And now his wife has abducted Tyrion Lannister, thanks to Littlefinger's meddling. I don't see Varys' little birds using a raven to give him the news, too dangerous, so how could they have done it quickier than Yoren ?

    At the end of Catelyn II, Ned tells Luwin he will talk to Benjen about Jon joining the Night's Watch

    Big fan of the band too, but according to this post, it's a coincidence

    Errors in the WOIAF

    I think you're right with the Vale map. It also has the river flowing by Heart's Home (or one of the vassal stream) taking source in the Riverlands, when on the other maps the source is in the Vale.

    Errors in the WOIAF

    I've just found an inconsistency on the maps of the kingdoms concerning the Kingsroad, south of the Neck. On the Riverlands and North maps, exiting the Neck, the Kingsroad crosses briefly the Vale before it enters the Riverlands. But on the Vale map, the Kingsroad no longer crosses the Vale, going directly from the Neck to the Riverlands west of the Vale. So which map is correct ?

    World of Ice and Fire App Update

    Well, we read it differently. To me, "scarcely" is rather a precision than a round-up, showing the duel happened soon after his nameday.

    World of Ice and Fire App Update

    No, there's no way to know for sure which one is correct. But why does the use of "scarcely" makes you think this memory is less trustworthy ? I read it as Cat remembering Petyr being fifteen for a short time when the betrothal was announced, she may remember celebrating the nameday. If Sansa being hopeless at sums comes from her mother, than the memory should be more trustful than the counting :cool4:

    World of Ice and Fire App Update

    You seem to be right, I don't see any counting mistake. But shouldn't Cat's mistake rather be in 298 ? By the time of the duel, she lived with Petyr, she remembers he was scarcely fifteen. In 298, she hasn't seen him since the duel, it seems more likely she didn't make the math there and estimated his age at a little less of thirty rather then a little more.

    Has it ever been considered to use the paragraph number ? They're not numbered, but you can always count them by hand, and above all it's independent of the editions. For example :

    There's also this quote from Game 21 : There's a mistake here, because we know from Mance's story of his first meeting with Jon when he was a boy in Winterfell that Qorgyle was still Lord Commander then, so Jeor couldn't be Lord Commander during the Rebellion. But if Jeor meant "since I have joined the Night's Watch", then he had joined before the Rebellion.

    It's more than heavily implied, and the appearance of "Pate" in Feast's last chapter confirms it. I agree there can be de doubts for some characters, but the real Pate is clearly dead.
