    Military Strengths-2 and More!

    I do not remember that, nor did i see it in the quote you provided, not that i do not believe you but could you quote where we are told this. I do and it was meant as both ways thing. Those few tents still prove there where other tents so my point still stands. GRRM has regularly admitted that numbers are not his strong point so thats nothing new. And as to Ran he has admitted that he does not know they exact numbers himself because GRRM never gave them to him so i am not surprised he gave no answer. If you are aware of this then why are you fighting us on this you have basically just admitted we are right, and i am not a fan of bending the texts of the books just to make something fit a headcanon.

    No problem, i agree with you on the way the "more" and "chiefly" should be read in the context of the centences in the book, but i have long ago come to the realisation that not everyone is going to end up on the same page. If he does not want to see it then you are never going to convince him.

    Anger is not helping you at all here you know and you did not mark it al clearly as you say you did, i also responded to it because it followed on you rant against me and as said you did not mark it clearly as a new thing at all, now if you had actually put the name of the person you where addresing there then it would have been clear but the way you put it now its certainly not clear. perhaps you are better off not coming onto this forum if you can not stand critique.

    This is what i mean by you trying to change the subject, i never commented on the Wardens i have only talked about Lord Paramounts. You drag other things into it when you feel cornered. But to comment on the Warden thing i agree with you on this so we have common ground in that.

    Hang on there, the feasttents are not they only tents, in your own quote they speak of tents washed away by the water of the Green Fork because they where to close to the water. next its nowhere stated how many people each tents seats and Robb sees men milling around the tents meaning not everyone has found a place inside and last but not least the Umber horse was with Robb so the Umber men in the quote need not be from Roose his force. This is in no way helping your point and i get the feeling you made this post in anger because usually you pick up on these kind things yourself. I was talking in general sence not just this tread, and i did say you have good points so why are you responding as if i am attacking you? The bolded happened to me to but unlike FNR i took a different screenname if you look around carefully Corvo you will see that there are several members of the forum with odd names they created to stay as close as possible to there original ones.

    Oh i take his numbers with a grain of salt, but that does not mean he does not have fair points, just like you have fair points in many of your posts.

    Look this angry respons only proves you are feeling cornered and that is because your arguments are flawed and you know it, just in case you have not noticed nobody in this tread agrees with you maybe you should take that as a hint about how believeworthy your views are.

    I agree with @Free Northman Reborn i think you are misinterpreting here, quantity usually does not apply to people and the second definition of the use of "most" is "The majority of" as example of its use is given "most people" now if you look up the meaning of majority its says "a number or percentage equaling more then half of the total" so i really do not see how you can get anything out of this other then that more then half of the troops are of house Bolton.

    House Velaryon MIA.

    Actually it may not have been that small at all of the 200 ships in stannis his fleet 50 are the part of the royal fleet he took with him to Dragonstone 25 are sallador saan his ships then there are a unkown number of Myrish sellsail but at least 20 because they form at least one of the battle lines of 20 ships and possible 2, so that's 95 to possible 115 ships accounted for of the 200. So even if we only get 9 names of ships that where provided by the Lords of the Narrow sea they seem to have contributed a lot more then that.

    You are still missing my point, namely that it is lesson in how ineffective it is to not have someone in a region that can act on behave of the king without first having to send a message to the king, and this would be a lesson that would not be lost on the likes of Barth and Jaehaerys. And the the differs with what i said is? He commits a crime the punishment under law is death you then appeal to the king who either confirms the sentence or shows mercy. And how does this change or affect my point that when a Lord breaks the law he needs to be dealt with quickly because with an army at his back he could do a lot of damage while you are waiting for that attainder you speak off, it doesn't you are trying to stear away from the point i was making because you have no real argument against it.

    Missed that one somehow, sorry about that. That they where not Lords is erelevant to the point i was trying to make i was speaking of how it would be a lesson in how ineffective it is for they Iron Throne to have to give permission for these sort of things to be dealt with. As to the bolded part the same goes for a Lord Paramount who as they responsibble Lord for a region can and in my mind is seen as the representative of the king for that perticular region. I agree that a Lord could probably appeal to the King if he so wishes, but that would not be a new trial just the King confirming the sentence or granting mercy. I have no idea how rare this is and neither do you, but i do agree they would not be commonplace. However when it does acure a Lord with armed forces is a hell of a lot more dangereus then a commoner which is the reason they need to be dealt with fast which means you can't wait for permmision from the King.

    No it is not, its actually very vague and it makes sence for it to have been elaborated upon by Barth and Jaehaerys when they made there unified lawbook to combat the many problems that reading the statement the way you did would cause. It makes no sence for a Lord Paramount not to be able to judge the Lords in his region in the name of the King but instead having to write to the king first, by the time a reply gets back giving permission it could be to late. This is a lesson that Jaehaerys would have learned from the many problems Aenys had with rebels, Harren the red, the vulture king and Jonos Arryn where eventually dealt with not by the king but by his Lords taking matters into there own hands.

    Lord not Lord Paramount who would by default be the kings appointed representative for the region they rule in his name and thus would be able to hold trials in the kings name, even if it is an other Lord that is on trial.
