With the insurgency raging ,astopor fallen and now dany gone it would seem like a forgone conclusion that slavery is comming back in a big way. The sheer mass of forces aligned makes it look impssible to see it going any other way That is unless as we readers know appearances can be decieving, that the strongest elements of the slavers army (the new ghis legions) , slave leaders and various niche mercs from nearby pro slave cities (the slingers and crossbowmen) have bloody flux among them (thus will not only lose but retreat back and bring deadly plauge to slavery strongpoints) ALSO that the seemingly mightly volantis fleet may be riddled with pro slavery troops and is about to be ambushed by the ironborn , that 2 sellsword companies are about to turn sides mid battle and finaly that danys forces arent waiting and are gonna mount a suprise offensive !! All in all the stage is set for such a comprehensive loss for the slavers from such a seemingly easy win that its hard to see this not kickstarting the anti slave war essos needs! One of the many things I dislike about Adam Feldman’s analysis is the basic assumption of moral equivalence between each party to this conflict. It’s “both sides-ism” at its worst. Within the city there is a clear aggressor (the Harpies). Without the city, there is an equally clear aggressor (the slaver coalition). There is no casus belli against either the freedmen, or the Meereenese State. Morte and Oana_Mika 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
