    The ASOIAF wiki thread

    O, that might be an excellent idea! It would be useful for Maegor, for example, or Rohanne Webber. Regarding running short of letters to use as codes, there should be plenty of letters left to add those options, right? Can't we use both lower case and capital letters? I'll have to try it then! Thanks for the explanation!

    The error of 282 AC actually being 283 AC is already in the errata! All the errors listed in the earlier linked thread are in the errata as well, as a couple of others If you come across any others, please add them!

    They look very good! Much better than the options/solutions we had thusfar! This will allow us to display up to four marriages within one family tree template at the same time, right? I am not very familiar with CSS codes necessary to increase the possibilities in template, but perhaps you know this. Do you think it is possible to add a note box within a family tree template (like, for example, this family tree on wikipedia (ignoring that they use it to display references, ))? We don't use notes in family trees often, but the few times that we do, the Notes template now needs to be added to the page to display everything properly, and by having the option of having a note box within the family tree templates (which lists only the notes from within the family tree) would circumvent that.

    Sounds good! Especially interesses in your idea for the third marriages issue on the family trees!

    We need to talk about the end of Daenerys III

    Correct. The "The Winds of Winter (mentioned)" section on the wiki can only depict on what we currently know, and that is that in the sample chapters which have thus far been released, she is only mentioned.

    A Certain Man

    Martin confirmed that it was Varys who Arya saw: 5) About the two men Arya saw conspiring to restore Dany to Westeros in GoT--one is obviously Illyiro, but who is this other? My friend seems insistent that you confirmed that it is Varys, but IIRC, Varys is hairless while the man Arya saw had a beard. Varys was a former mummer. Could you clear this up, or will we find out later? It was Varys.

    Essos has no "common tongue", I suppose. It depends on the part of Essos you are in which language is the main language spoken. As in the Free Cities they speak dialects of High Valyrian (which in turn vary between each city), I think it is very likely that Varys knows (bastard) Valyrian.

    In Clash 4, Bran already has and describes his wolf dreams. Jon finding the silent Ghost as a pup in Game has been considered warging as well, by some.

    Small Questions v. 10105

    And yet, Mance has never expressed the desire of ruling the north, so why would he fight for control over the region? There are only three kings; Aegon has not yet been crowned. And the fact that Renly died before Balon declared himself is known to the maesters... It just has not stopped them from naming the war as they have The people in Westeros consider it such. The struggle that the maesters were calling the War of the Five Kings was all but at an end. (ASOS, Tyrion 8) Ask Edmure how chivalrous I am, thought Jaime. Ask him about the trebuchet. Somehow he did not think the maesters were like to confuse him with Prince Aemon the Dragonknight when they wrote their histories. Still, he felt curiously content. The war was all but won. Dragonstone had fallen and Storm's End would soon enough, he could not doubt, and Stannis was welcome to the Wall. The northmen would love him no more than the storm lords had. If Roose Bolton did not destroy him, winter would. (AFFC, Jaime 7) Rhaegar Frey went on. "Grief and death, aye … and this onion lord will bring you more with his talk of vengeance. Open your eyes, as my lord grandsire did. The War of the Five Kings is all but done. Tommen is our king, our only king. We must help him bind up the wounds of this sad war. As Robert's trueborn son, the heir of stag and lion, the Iron Throne is his by rights." (ADWD, Davos 3) The wiki calls it phase 2, because the new struggles have no uniting name yet That they are caused by one another (or, perhaps a better description, because the circumstances created by the first war gave rise to the opportunities of the new struggles to succeed), does not mean they are counted as being part of the same big struggle, though. Aegon's campaign is a completely new one. The only part associated to the War of the Five Kings is its timing. Euron has discontinued Balon's desire for independence, and has set his sights on the IT. Renly and Robb have no successors. Let's hope some maesters survive. :-)

    Possibly. But not necessarily. All the other kings were in battle against the IT, that was the factor uniting them all. So who would Mance be fighting? Additionally, one could argue that it would no longer be the War of the Five Kings, if a sixth king gets involved. :) Furthermore, the War of the Five Kings is considered to be at its end. I suppose it would mostly depend on how the maesters would categorize it. Is it the second part of the already existing conflict, or is it a new conflict, with several "players" overlapping? I would currently guess for the latter.

    To add to this, we can further determine it's placement in the years using the namedays we sort of know how to place in the year, how they relate to each other, and the Battle of the Bells. Daenerys's nameday falls near the middle of the year, and Jon's "close to eight or nine months" before, so in the final months of the year. Robb's is supposed to fall before Jon, as his conception is said to have occurred first, but falls nine months after Catelyn's wedding, which occurred shortly after the Bells. With Jon's falling near the end of the war, based on Dany having been born nine months after fleeing KL, and the amount of war that already happened before the Battle of the Bells, we can place the Bells at the end of 282 AC/early 283 AC. With Jon Connington's statement of it having been 17 years since the battle by mid 300 AC, 283 has the better argumentation.

    The War of the Five Kings was a battle over dominion over parts of the Seven Kingdoms. The lands north off the Wall are not part of the Seven Kingdoms, and he was not battling for dominion over (part of) the kingdom. Only the battle beneath the Wall is counted as part of the war, as it is part of Stannis's campaign in the north.

    The ASOIAF wiki thread

    No opinions? I think that, as the book to be released in November has not been adressed as having "Volume One" in its title, the wiki should not differentiate between part 1 and part 2 as far as titles are concerned. While it would definitely be mentioned that the plan is to divide F&B in two parts, the fact remains that part 2 is, as of yet, untitled.

    The ASOIAF wiki thread

    The template on ASOIAF works has been changed to present Fire & Blood (2018) Volume One, Volume Two. However, as this first part has been referred to only "Fire & Blood", both in GRRM's blog posts and on the cover image, and the second part is, as of yet, untitled, should "Volume One" not simply be referred to as "Fire and Blood"? (Similarly, the section "Contents of Volume One" be titled "Contents"?, as the second part is not yet titled.)

    Wow, I never noticed that v.16

    Except that she does not single out Joffrey. She compares Harry, her husband-to-be, to Joffrey, her former betrothed, in the sense that both are good looking, yet Joff's personality was bad, leading her to conclude that looks don't say all. Then she compares them to Tyrion, her actual husband, who was not good looking, but at least was kind to her. All the other men, even Willas, are not used in the comparison as she was never, at whatever time, betrothed or married to either one of them. I'm not excluding anything. I'm saying that we do not have any confirmation.
