chrisdaw Posted January 26 Share Posted January 26 They're mostly not long term master plans, they're adaption as circumstances arise with a goal somewhere off in the sunset. Had things gone another way they'd have done something different. And things do go another way, big time and often, Drogo killing Viserys and then Drogo dying for example, and the players roll with it. Jaime demanding Varys set Tyrion free and then Tyrion murdering Tywin for another, that seems to have forced Varys underground. 2 hours ago, frenin said: His plan relied completely on Ned never talking to Robert and or Varys baxking him up. He literally framed Tyrion for murder and then banked on Tyrion being cool headed enough about not simply separating his head from his shoulders. And so on. So Ned talks to Robert, and... ? How does that completely ruin anything, and even if it did just fizzle out so what? He just moves on to the next idea to cause chaos and find an angle to profit from it. Tyrion wasn't in any position to be a threat to him or likely to be in such a position when he told the lie, and he read Tyrion's character correctly (not to mention has eyes and ears in KL to sniff out danger) when Tyrion fell into the position of Hand.
