Corvo the Crow Posted October 26, 2022 Share Posted October 26, 2022 (edited) As the title says. What are some examples you can give in regards to the world building being poorly done? I'll start off with the Ravens. Quote Both." Stannis snapped the word out. "A maester's raven flies to one place, and one place only. Is that correct?" The maester mopped sweat from his brow with his sleeve. "N-not entirely, Your Grace. Most, yes. Some few can be taught to fly between two castles. Such birds are greatly prized. And once in a very great while, we find a raven who can learn the names of three or four or five castles, and fly to each upon command. Birds as clever as that come along only once in a hundred years." Ravens fly to one place and one place only. Then for this messaging app of Westeros to work, say for example Robert to send nude doodles of himself to ladies of the realm, get replies and send more, there must be a constant traffic of Ravens being carried around but not only are we not shown any such thing but also it would be very hard during times of war and impossible during winter. Not to mention even during times of peace and such a traffic existing but not shown it would be very slow going. You'd have perhaps a few ravens at most (per destination that is) but these would quickly run out(or fly out?) during a prolonged exchange, in fact, sending riders would become much faster since they won't be carrying around cages upon cages of Ravens.
