  1. Way back when I first read the books, I used to imagine young Robert Baratheon as a taller, more muscular version of Smallville-era Tom Welling. Nowadays I think True Blood-era Joe Manganiello makes for a better fit. And he's too old now, but Tom Hopper from Black Sails and The Umbrella Academy would've made an excellent Dunk. Battlestar Galactica-era Tricia Helfer is what I picture Cersei as resembling.
  2. Well, the nurture would've changed as well. Knowing Cersei I doubt she would've loved and spoiled Robert's son to the degree she did Joffrey. And Robert would've been way more involved in the kid's upbringing instead of essentially checking out like he did with Joffrey.
  3. I thought the very same thing. Either a previous colonization attempt or someone wanting to tuen it into a way station to somewhere else.
  4. It would depend on how fertile they are, if we consider the archipelago as a whole. If we assume that Aegon is 100 sq mi and Visenya and Rhaenys are each around 75 sq mi, that would give us a total area of 250 sq mi for the whole archipelago. Madeira has a total area of 286 sq mi. That means that if the island has the right kind of terrain, it could support of decent, if not large permanent population. Granted, the archipelago is far too remote for it to be used to plant cash crops, like Madeira, but if someone got into their head they wanted to be the sovereign of their own little kingdom, and had the gold to burn, they could get something going on there.
  5. I've been wondering about the possibilities of permanent colonization of the three small islands Elissa Farman discovered during her expedition, and one key point I keep coming back to is their size. In the text they are described as... "Three small islands, even the largest of them a third the size of Dragonstone" So I need to ask, how big is Dragonstone anyway? If that's our only point of comparison.
  6. I am ashamed to admit that I found the ever increasing jerkassery of Unwin Peake to be a great exercise in unintended black comedy. Specially the Maiden's Day Cattle Show and the lead up to it.

    Question for Elio & Linda regarding F&B Pentos

    Classism doesn't take long to develop. Referring to it in terms of blood may be Gyldayn's cultural bias shining through.

    Maybe he was referring to the primary sources Gyldayn was working from?

    I’ve found another issue. The pin sword for Vojjor Samvi (Kasath) is not on top of that city in the map, it’s south of Vaes Diaf (Hazdahn Mo).

    For what it's worth, I'm in Peru and I downloaded the update without trouble.

    I think I caught one. The entry for Sathar (Yalli Qamayi) describes it as sitting in the junction of the river Sarne and another river. However, the entries for both Saath and Sarys (Vaes Graddakh) puts them in the Sarne delta. But those are mutually exclusive, the rivers that go by Sathar empties in the Bay of Tusks, nowhere near the other cities or the delta they sit in..

    I have it! I have it! In my iPad. Still exploring though. Lots of info on the known world. ETA: Those of you speculating about Children of the Forest in the Kingdom of Ifequevron might've been unto something. ;) ETA: Put together the entries on the ruined Sarnori cities give a somewhat clear image of how events unfolded in the early days of the Century of Blood.
