    What was Tywin's original plan?

    If robert was still alive hed still be married to tywins daughter so has some leverage there on top of considerable debt owed

    Did Tywin waste his legendary wealth?

    Bear in mind as a lord getting deep into commerce and worrying over funds is seen as beneath them ( see freys) plus like all the debtors the crown owed he was prob getting some nice interest anyway on top of his already seemingly limitless wealth 1) traders are already comming into lannisport to sell all manner of items for gold or trade goods for westerlands metals etc ....increasing the westerlands military and merchant navy isnt gonna massively alter that . If was gonna go down that path investing in essosi buissness through the iron bank would prob be an easier and more productive shout 2)its the 2nd largest force and probably tied with the reach for best equiped and best % heavy cavalry etc . Tywin also added an elite loyal force of footsmen to protect lannisters after witnessing abductions and raised up house clegane to give him 2 of westeros best warriors.......cant do much better than that. 3) not many great lords do 4) theres very little lords would do but theres no indication its in any great need of it either Jamies rage at someone attacking near casterly rock ( tyrions first wife) would strongly hint at a well patroled area where incidents of crime near the rock are rare.

    Hilarious in Hindsight

    Jon telling ser patrek how wildling women need to be abducted if you want one as yours Then telling wun wun to guard the princess

    Who's the worst human being, Tywin Lannister or Roose Bolton

    Roose by far Tywin did what he did to, he drove a powerful family into the ground to stop people mocking the lannisters so people would fear him again and then his already mocked wilful son marries a commoner. He tried to break tyrion of his rebellious ways hurting the lannister family name and also cut him loose of a useless marriage ...dwarf or not his 2nd name could secure an alliance Roose by contrast is just a monster by his own admission his actions will prob ruin his house so they are utterly short sighted for his own gain

    Would Robert have been Happier in Stannis’ Position?

    Stannis would be miserable as always but an highly effective leader and westeros wouldnt be the same mess Robert would be free to whore and dedicate himself utterly to warfare ,hed never grow fat hed remain a badass into middle age ,a pitbull to be set on his kings enemies Renly with stannis as head of the kingdom and family would have to not be such a shallow dude hed have to actualy be of worth to the kingdom ,hed still love loras so would need to be married off to margery to be with loras and stop a scandal

    What if Tywin joined Robert's Rebellion (properly)

    The combined forces would mean the rebellion would have been over quicker , less lords would be less willing to side vs tywin plus his family frey links woulda prob helped swing lord frey to the much larger rebellion forces. Thex factor question would be jamie , seeing the way the wind was blowing and knowing his fathers reaction rhaeggar prob would have moved to send him away before the mad king had him captured.
  7. Id highly doubt any of them would be so stupid. Both have spent most of their life in essos and are well aware of the ib power,its not an enemy anyone wants

    Westeros; the sleepy superpower

    Hard to say having dragons doesnt necessarily guarantee easy victory (look at dorne) and essos is awash with dangerous military assets and assasins ...pkus theres the unkown Maybe the shaddowbinders, facelessmen etc get involved and who knows what other horrors and magic is far east , or what assets yi ti could field

    How to improve the north economically?

    Id say beggining with a secure natural harbour then building upthe fleet slowly , the ib cant attack en mase without declaring war on the 5 kingdoms , just slowly build up a fleet at first itd just patrols to remove the threat of surprise raids on the west coast Overall though until the wot5k the wildlings seems like the more pressing issue to the norths growth

    How to improve the north economically?

    Itd be a start towards a navy yes but given the nature of warfare unless a stray arrow or someone bests them one on one the sword will stay with their living owners , itd be hard to justify siezing the blades just for money if the iron islands king honourably bends the knee Besides all this assumes the north wages a naval war and wins vs westeros top tier naval power , then follows up with total war at land. ...the costs of which would massively outweigh the gains even if sucessfull at war.

    How to improve the north economically?

    Id doubt youd get a colossal amount not the kind of cash needed to sustain a navy Plus given they are in the hands of the knight and the house whos champ is abdrik the unsmiling...so getting them is easier said that done

    How to improve the north economically?

    Dunno if 2 swords even val steel would go for that much The bravossi captains are already heading there for their own money,you could send brave northern sailors but thats always a gamble in such a dangerous seass I agree with increasing trade ,maybe even plead with yi ti etc to offer all its criminals the black as alternative to deatg or prison

    How to improve the north economically?

    Hmmm slaving their peasants wouldnt sit well with the north if ur soo keen on slaves though unsullied to patrol the wall seems a good investment As for the dromonds idea the wiki states the ironfleet ships while a little smaller are a match for the larger galleys and dromminds of the mainland whereas the other longboats are a matxh for the smaller war galleys that make up the bulk of most fleets,to truely wreck the iron isles id make weapons and arm the thralls for an uprising

    Shes not gonna be though and the north should get their own western fleet that way they arent reliant on ironborn goodwill No you cant exterminate the wildlings but a well defended wall to largely stop most raids would do wonders for the northmost lords and the gift areas.

    How to improve the north economically?

    Good ideas id say solving the wildling and ironborn raids would be the first step though, the gift area and the stoney shore are both descrived as lush and full of potential. As soon as people feel safe there it can all be developed The mines ,fishing ,extra farnland and towns etc would all follow once the population starts to boom there again
