Lurid Jester Posted July 1, 2016 Share Posted July 1, 2016 Just now, JMJ said: Another way to put it is that in their world (Planetos), their "laws of nature" are such that certain natural phenomenon allow for the ability to see the future, see the past, etc. Various religions have developed to explain these otherwise difficult to explain phenomenon, but in the end, they can be explained by their laws of nature. It's certainly possible the followers of R'hllor tend towards being baddies, but that may or may not be inherent to their "fire network". Part of me still thinks that Rhllor is tied, somehow, to the doom of Valeria, and is the real danger. Whatever power lurks behind the flames has concluded that the Others and the greenseers are on the same side. Is it because they are on the same side, or because they both oppose Rhllor independently? maybe there is no black and white with these supernatural forces either. Martin has said in the past that the trope of the dark evil army has damaged the fantasy genre. Seems odd he would then use it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
