    The ASOIAF wiki thread

    Something else: I think the file pages of FFG images need to be revised. Here is an example. " Posted in the "Card Guide Wiki" under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike License" is true, but that does not mean it is right as well. These images are copyrighted and must not be used under CCA for sure, so that needs to be removed. Furthermore, "The original picture can be found on" often leads to a website (of the artist or of FFG) where the original picture can not be found. In this cases the sentence needs to be removed as well. I know that would be a lot of work, but at least the copyright situation needs to be set right.

    The ASOIAF wiki thread

    I agree, it should be removed. I think adding such a section should have been discussed before doing it anyway.

    Hey pigo, unfortunately I can not help you, but ist there any way to already have a look on one of your illustrations?

    Small Questions v. 10105

    In my opinion ist is a metaphor. For Eddard, killing children is wrong and unlawful, and they rebelled against Aerys to make an end to a reign of wrongs and injustices. So it is another way of saying "what did we rise against Aerys Targaryen for, if not to put an end to these kind of wrongs?"

    FIRE AND BLOOD Volume 1

    If I remember correctly, that information was part of the Cregan Stark campaign.

    What does Jaehaerys II Targaryen hide in his painting? 

    I have no idea where that one comes from, but I am very sure that it is no portrait from Amok based on notes of GRRM. But yes, there is an image of Maelys in the Worldbook, and you can see his second head, but apparently this guy did not care about the opinion of his environment, he even killed his cousin.

    What does Jaehaerys II Targaryen hide in his painting? 

    Some people hide their deficiencies, some do not. These portraits are meant to show the look of the person but also the character itself. Aerys was insane, so his portrait shows he did not care about his look anymore. We do not have a portrait of Maelys.

    What does Jaehaerys II Targaryen hide in his painting? 

    It has been speculated that his left arm was kind of crippled.

    FIRE AND BLOOD Volume 1

    @The Dragon Demands Here you go. I am sure that was added right back with the rest of the MUSH 2.0 stuff. I think Lyonel's siblings Stafford, Martyn and Bethany are marked as canon as well, although it is not really clear if their names were given by GRRM himself. Lyonel's children with Samantha were named by Elio and Linda. So maybe Garmund could be a grandchild of Otto through one of Alicent's brothers? Do not know how this could have worked politically, but at least the timeline would fit.

    FIRE AND BLOOD Volume 1

    Elio confirmed that the Lyonel guy from the MUSH and his former step-mother Samantha are canon, so I think it is clear that Garmund was not Ormund's heir.

    FIRE AND BLOOD Volume 1

    Elio already confirmed it was just a story for the children.

    FIRE AND BLOOD Volume 1

    GRRM himself said the second part was largely unwritten. The family tree in the Worldbook shows the match between Garmund Hightower and Rhaena Targaryen. They had six daughters.
  13. It is not definite that Pycelle has never been knighted, either. The amount of textual evidence might be the same.
  14. Sure. And on the way to King's Landing he knighted Mycah. And then me and my dog. There is an SSM about the fosterage of Ned and Robert, stating that Ned in opposite to Robert was not training to become a knight. http://www.westeros.org/Citadel/SSM/Entry/Some_Questions

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Just wait for Fire and Blood (it is getting released in November), because it contains all the texts from The Princess and the Queen, The Rogue Prince and The Sons of the Dragons.

    Kermit Tully slew Borros Baratheon during the Dance of Dragons. As Loose Bolt said.
  17. The Wondering Wolf

    Too many heirs. Let's send Aemon to citadel.

    Care to explain?

    Theodan Wells: north or south?

    Maybe you did not read through the thread, but the Ice and Fire Campaign Guide (which contains information provided by GRRM) says Theodan is from the North. That is right, although his brother was not knighted, so Helman's knighthood could have been the result of some war.

    Theodan Wells: north or south?

    The Manderlys may be the only known followers of the Seven in the North, but some of their vassals might have adopted their faith as well.

    Theodan Wells: north or south?

    I think the wiki's statement is based on the semi canon Ice and Fire Campaign Guide. That means Theodan is from the North unless GRRM changes his mind.

    Is Varys a Blackfyre?

    @Lord Varys I know you proposed some Blackfyre wifes for Aegon's V sons as well (and I considered that an interesting possibilty back then), but right now I do not believe in any Blackfyre matches anymore. And even if a Blackfyre was Torwyn's wife, I think the Greyjoy line was continued by his brother Loron.

    Town Charters (Saltpans & Fairmarket)

    Is it not the same with Cox and Hawick in Saltpans?

    Weird dragon logistics

    She found herself thinking of Meereen, of Daario, her love, and Hizdahr, her husband, of Irri and Jhiqui and sweet Missandei, Ser Barristan and Reznak and Skahaz Shavepate. Do they fear me dead? I flew off on a dragon's back. Will they think he ate me? She wondered if Hizdahr was still king. His crown had come from her, could he hold it in her absence? He wanted Drogon dead. I heard him. "Kill it," he screamed, "kill the beast," and the look upon his face was lustful. And Strong Belwas had been on his knees, heaving and shuddering. Poison. It had to be poison. The honeyed locusts. Hizdahr urged them on me, but Belwas ate them all. She had made Hizdahr her king, taken him into her bed, opened the fighting pits for him, he had no reason to want her dead. Yet who else could it have been? Reznak, her perfumed seneschal? The Yunkai'i? The Sons of the Harpy?

    Is Varys a Blackfyre?

    @Megorova Beron's second successor Willam died in 226 AC, so even if Beron did not die during the reign of Aerys I, he would not live long enough to father a son in the 230ies. The theory that he abdicated as lord in 215 AC, but was able to father Rodrik more then twenty years later, does not make any sense to me.
  25. The Wondering Wolf

    Is Varys a Blackfyre?

    @Megorova I agree that the timeline does not fit for Maegor being the Tattered Prince, but neither does it for Rodrik. His father was Beron Stark who died around 215 AC.
