    Default Re: why are all the noblemen in game of thrones such good warriors?

    Because focusing on the ones that aren't has the possibility of being a very short book...


    Facebook post about Alexis Cruz and the Audiobook he's done. If you're a fan of Alexis and his work - you'll love it. Book 1 and 2 are there now. The second one is brilliant, but I can't vouch for the first one (not having heard it), but I'm sure it's just as good, if not better.


    "I'm not gonna eat it - that's disgusting... I'm gonna wear it as a worm-stache." - Misha Collins (Supernatural Season 6 Gag Reel)
    "Becker, it leads to the Victorian Era. What do you think is going to come through, an Oliver-Twist-Asaurus?" - Connor - Primeval.

    Alexis Cruz - Facebook. (insert Klorel/Skaara icon here...) and ThunkThread ~ The Unprofessionals page for updates. ~

    there are better warriors than those you've mentioned. Theon is a good archer, but that's all and I wouldn't call Robb a good fighter, perhaps a modest one. Don't know if you've read books, but there are really many better warriors. And I'm not so sure about Ned

    generally in period pieces and fantasy things made these days they have all the high born worriers being crap with the implication being the only gained their position because of family, where as all the low born worriers are good the implication being they gained their position though merit alone. Game of thrones is distinct in that it takes a middle ground of having the high born worriers be good but not brilliant, it’s occurred to me since originally posting this tread that that’s probably pretty realistic.... I mean if I say decided to study martial a few several hours a day I’d probably never be able to best Bruce lee but I’d still end up reasonably skilled with in sevral years

    Jaqen H'ghar is probably the best "warrior". I wouldn't call him a warrior, but he's capable of killing practically every man/woman. And he's not a nobleman.

    Default Re: who gave Tyrion Lannister the money he carries around?

    As both Tyrion and even Tywin have said, he's a Lannister.


    Really all the explanation that needs be said.

    Default The Lannister fortune and how it's divvied up

    if they are all that rich there's something a bit off about Alton Lannister, he came of as far to humble to be someone who could buy almost anything on a whim?

    Not every Lannister has blonde hair. That and Alton Lannister isn't with the main branch of the Lannister family--the ones from Casterly Rock. Alton Lannister is supposed to be from from the ones at Lannisport. Reginald Lannister, another Lannister from Lannisport, appeared in The Ghost of Harrenhal and has brown hair.

    Default how come the Lannister family has many branches but the Stark family don't seem to?

    how does a family end up with more then one branch if only the eldest son inherits?

    The Lannisters and Starks follow the same rules of inheritance. Excess sons (usually) marry to other noble houses, or rather their wives join the Stark house. Not sure what you mean about the Lannisters having many branches or the Starks only one. The Starks have relatives in the other houses. Heck, the Karstarks are a separate noble house descended (originally) from the Starks.

    Perhaps it is done so you have another thing to question? GRRM is devious in that way...


    I mean look at him...Can't you tell he's out to get you?

    I knew GRRM was fond of seafood but with that equipment, it looks like he's about to subdue and devour a lobster.

    *getting hungry* I've had lobster once in the past 10 years. When I have the opportunity, I need to change this.

    He's actually eating the questions of slim. They sustain him.


    (lobster is good...haven't had it in a great while though)

    I think GRRM would enjoy feasting on the questions.

    (I am very fond of seafood, especially shrimp or clam chowder. I'd have lobster more often but the damn thing's just too expensive)

    Crab, clams, oysters (ever had an oyster shooter?) clam chowder, lobster, sushi (eel is DELICIOUS), octopus and squid...Pretty much anything seafood related, I love it.

    And now that this thread has been derailed...I want fish
