MtnLion Posted July 9, 2014 Share Posted July 9, 2014 Fighting the king's enemies enroute to the king is not breaking the vow. You add "obstructing the KG way to the king" after enemies, Fighting the kings enemies obstructing the way to the king while enroute to the king is not breaking the vow. Not attempting to twist things here. Dragonstone is northeast of the ToJ.... if Viserys was king and and Ned approached from the northeast the KG could have fought and been keeping kept their vow. if Viserys was king and Ned approached from the southwest the KG could not have fought and been keeping their vow. but "gotten in their way" could mean offering actual physical resistance. Fighting the kings enemies that are offering actual physical resistance while enroute to the king is not breaking the vow. Back to the Loras running in to Stannis and being told that all KG in KL are dead. If Stannis drops his sword. Loras can't cut him down without breaking his vow. Good thing that is not common knowledge: King has no kingsguard. I am not resisting you. If you touch me you're an oathbreaker. No, you are trying to twist things. Ned is not trying to impede the Kingsguard getting to Dragonstone, he is offering to help them get to Dragonstone. That is why he offers that bit after he has offered to accept their surrender.
