cgrav Posted April 4, 2017 Share Posted April 4, 2017 If anything, the archetypal conflict presented in the OP would cast Bran as the caller. Running with the idea of corn = horn, the line about crows circling the tower waiting for corn indicates that they are waiting for one of our metaphorical horn blowers to call them down. Knowing that Bran used to routinely climb the tower and feed the crows sets him up as the ancient Greenseer who was having some fun playing god and then reached too far one day. And we know Bran was warned specifically about calling the dead, so maybe the text has given us a glimpse at the literal truth of the Planetos monomyth.
