Mithras Posted October 11, 2014 Share Posted October 11, 2014 · George does not like his prophecies (especially the central ones) to be too literal or too easy.· Within only 150 years, many people came to believe that Baelor the Blessed jumped into a pit of vipers to save his brother from captivity and since he was so holy, the snakes did not bite him. The reality is that “pit of vipers” was a metaphor for Dorne but people liked the other tale better. Imagine what would happen to a prophecy of at least 5000 years old.· At this point of the story, it does not make sense for a person to come up with a magical sword to save the mankind. That is not the nature of the current crisis Westeros faces.· Obsidian is already proved to be deadly against the Others. Fire and steel work fine for the wights. Why should people need an extra magical sword (however cool that is) to turn the tide of the battle?· The description of what the Lightbringer did to the beast according to Jade Compendium suspiciously fits well to the descriptions of how dragonfire kills men and animals in several cases.
