Was it ever confirmed that Roose personally killed Robb? I just reread the RW chapter. Before the bedding Roose excuses himself for a visit to the privy. Then the slaughter begins and armed Northmen follow a dozen Frey men-at-arms led by Ryman Frey. Near the end we get this:

A man in dark armor and a pale pink cloak spotted with blood stepped up to Robb. "Jaime Lannister sends his regards." He thrust his longsword through her son's heart, and twisted.

Absolutely. I always assumed it was him. But I want to know it that was ever confirmed.

I think that are the hints that it's Roose. I don't know why or how, but I immediately thought that it was Roose on my first read, and since I missed a lot of obvious things on my first read, I think it would be strange that I'd see through that one at once. :p

But Jaime spoke to Roose personally, telling him to "Send Robb Stark my regards". It would only make sense that it was Roose that did the killing. It was a pink cloak, so it was definitly a Bolton man. And a mere soldier would not be important enough to be allowed to murder a King, I suspect.

Maybe on the official App? I dunno I don't have it.

OK, so I thought Faceless men worship the Many Faced God, but when Jaqen H'Ghar is talking to Arya at Harrenhal he says.



The Red God has his due, sweet girl, and only death may pay for life. This girl took three that were his. This girl must give three in their places. Speak the names, and a man will do the rest.



It's not too far a stretch to say he at least recognizes the Red God's power, or maybe worships it. Has anybody brought this up before? Or are Faceless Men allowed to worship any God. Also, could him worshiping the R'hllor, or at least adhering to its power, be responsible for him being imprisoned in the Red Keep in the first place?

I brought this up a while ago and the answer I was given made sense to me, although it was basically speculation. What wasthought was that Arya save Jaqen Rorge and Biter from death by fire, and so 3 further deaths were owed to the God of Fire. Made sense to me. There is also the theory that Jaqen has gone rouge.

No, worshipping R'hllor would not in any way result in imprisonment, Thoros of Myr was a Red Priest and he held a position at Court.Plus he was from Essos, so it would be generally expected that he would have different attitudes and beliefs than those of the Westerosi.

Makes sense. And I know Westerosi can worship R'hollor. I just wondered if Jaqen all of the sudden said "I follow the Red God, not the Many Faced God" then by some means the Faceless Men capture him and throw him in a cell. Weird, I know, but we've seen what the Faceless Men do when their orders aren't followed, like with Arya.

Jaqen refers to the Red God, and elsewhere to the god of fire. Is he referring to R'hllor? When we see Arya being educated by the Faceless Men, R'hllor doesn't seem to be particularly important to them.

(George thinks for a moment) Well, remember when Jaqen names him: he had very nearly burned to death recently...

I always figured that the religion of Him of Many Faces wasn't an exclusive religion. Perhaps the FM that paid Arya's debt worshiped R'hllor when he wss young. Or perhaps FM take comparative religion 101 as part of their training. They do beieve their god is the god of death, universal to all religions and cultures, and any god waiting on three fresh souls would fit nicely.

I think this will bite Jaime's ass when he was brought before UnCat. UnCat naturally assumes that Jaime has a hand in Red Wedding because of this dumb courtesy of Jaime. I think UnCat thinks even Brienne is involved in this shit along with Jaime.

"...Wine no longer agrees with my digestion, I fear, but I can offer you a cup of iced milk, sweetened with honey. I find it most refreshing in this heat.'

There was no denying the heat; Ned could feel the silk tunic clinging to his chest."

Ok, how (where?) do you get ice on a super hot summer day in Kings Landing?

I suppose they have ice cellars underground which are naturally chilled and can store ice? I seem to think this was the medieval equivilent of a freezer

Just like irl before refrigeration, ice would be imported from cold climates or cut in blocks during winter and stored in underground storerooms, packed in sawdust to keep it from melting.

How long did the defiance of duskendale last and was Tywin outside of Duskendale the whole time?

I don't believe that is mentioned anywhere. Tywin would have been outside of Duskendale at least during Selmy's rescue operation, and probably before a bit as well.

But didn't the defiance last a few months? I don't believe it's in the books. The wiki says it was 6 months. Perhaps the exact time is given in the app?
