Re: Religion in Westeros

When do we see supernatural power from the Drowned God? I'm drawing a blank. In GoT they showed that the annointing of the new king involved Euron actually being drowned, pulled out of the water and coming back to life. So, possibly something similar to the Red God's powers - but maybe not. Also, a...

Religion in Westeros

So, Religion (always fun to bring up in a bar full of strangers). I’d like to believe that in a world as detailed as ASOIAF, GRRM has good reasons for describing the things he does - in this case the various religions. The thing is, I don’t remember any time that the Faith of the Seven, the dominate...

Re: Spin-Off Ideas

I'd like the spin-off to have nothing to do with whatever's left of the current characters. Possibly something much earlier like the wars of the Valyrian Freehold and the subsequent Doom. Or, maybe Bran the Builder and the Age of Heros.

Re: Samwell at the citadel

I think Sam is going to discover Jon's true parentage. Right now, there are only two characters that know who he is - Bran Stark and Howland Reed. Or, Jon's half-brother/cousin and someone who has only been in the show in Bran's vision. Why should anybody believe either of them without proof? If the...

Re: How do you kill an ice zombie?

I may certainly be wrong but I was using "ice zombies" and "wights" interchangably, both referring to re-animated corpses. I've been assuming that the White Walkers are alive in some manner.

Re: How do you kill an ice zombie?

- Dragons - Dragonglass - Valyrian Steel Swords - Wildfire - Regular fire. - Plus chopping them up into relatively harmless bits. So it looks like a consensus. Or, to put it another way, the average soldier standing in the ranks with his sword and shield is totally screwed. I'm hoping that the desi...

Re: End of Thrones.

As the months roll by, I’m getting more and more cynical. I figure that at some point, GRRM is going to realize that he’s glacially written himself into a corner and just say “screw it!” The last chapter will be a short Wedding Announcement: Today Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen was wed to Chi...

How do you kill an ice zombie?

Anybody have any idea how you can kill a wight? Fire seems to work as does getting stomped on by a giant and probably Valerian steel. But what about the weapons of the common soldier? At Hardhome, it looked like you could (temporarily) kill them with arrows but didn’t the dead ones get back up? Chop...
