        It's honestly hilarious to presume that to be the case when all evidence points the opposite.
        Sure, Westerosi peasant levies may be dogshit garbage, but considering they do have dudes who train to war from cradle to grave and possess a drastic technological advantage, it's wishful thinking Essos could even be considered anything except future targets for conquest.

        Dothraki wear no armor. Qarth, the self-titled greatest city still uses bronze armor principally. Unsullied are eunuchs and even though with unbreakable discipline would be physically weaker than any proper warrior. Everyone else pretty much just doesn't get mentioned outside Braavosi street duelists.

        But hey, GRRM says Jaime could beat Aragon or whatever.

          I never got how the Dothraki were supposed to be a credible threat. Transporting that many men and horses is a logistical absurdity. Assuming they even make it to Westeros, they need to pillage to feed their men and horses, but all the decent food stockpiles are behind walls they can't breach. Even without winter coming they would need to resort to eating their horses. They excel in fighting on the plains of the Dothraki sea, the terrain in Westeros is much rougher. They're also used to fighting unarmored opponents. But probably the most important point is why the frick would anyone support a woman bringing an army of foreign savages to Westeros? It seems like political suicide.

            The implication in the books seems to be that dany thinks she's forging a glorious conquering army, but when the dothraki pop over and encounter all the problems you describe, they'll end up just being roaming barbarian hordes slaughtering ordinary peasants and doing nothing of any use to her
            Combine that with eunuchs actually being shitty soldiers, and what you said about the natives not being happy to have foreign mongols unleashed upon them, and dany is unlikely to be hailed as the heroic queen she thinks she is
            Although it's been forever since I read the books so I probably imagined most of that, no doubt real bookgays can correct me

              No that's literally the plot. Varys has a secret Targaryen. Remember how he laughed and said when Targaryens are born the Gods throw a coin on whether they come out completely insane or heroic? Aegon is just a normal kid learning about how to rule properly. Danny was always a batshit crazy ruler huffing her own butthole. She was always going to lose, its just nobody knew Jon's parentage and that he has a wombo combo of having the backing of the entire North, the Wildlings, the Fey and the Wall and a cassus belli against all of Westeros that gave an out for anyone who hated the Lannisters to rally against. That's why Dany goes insane. If the morons running it didnt rush the season and it played out for 3 seasons like HBO wanted they would've had the Aegon arc and Dany getting pissed nobody takes her seriously in Westeros because both twins were insane.

        that's not even close to correct. Essosi in general are vastly inferior to Westerosi knights. There's a reason why the Golden Company (at the time 100% filled with Westerosi nobles and knights) casually sacked Qohor even though the city was defended by Unsullied.

        The Bravoosi had to hide their city from the Valyrians for 2 centuries before they were discovered. By that point, the Valyrians had calmed down and only demanded compensation for the ships stolen during the escape.

          Crowd control against jobbers isn’t dueling.
          Jaime has been trained to kill people in single one on one duels for decades - it’s his speciality in a culture which is highly competitive.

          Aragorn has been trained to hunt and harass subhumans in the wilderness and rarely fights and peers in single combat. Given his traits, Aragorn COULD be a better duelist, possibly. But given his current history and skill set, I wouldn’t say he was at present a better duelist

                except that time he personally killed an Umbar captain during his youth. Bear in mind Umbar's people tend to have Numenorean blood, especially nobles, so Aragorn might have killed a peer opponent. That's just one example we know of from Aragorn's time as Thorongil. He later went on a journey to the east so he might have fought Easterlings there. Besides, what makes you think Jaime has any experience with personal combat either? As a knight, he's expected to charge with a lance along with other knights/retainers, not fighting people one-on-one
                >but knights do fight in tourney
                during Trial by Combat/Trial by Seven, not during ordinary jousting tourneys. In a regular tourney, he wins as soon as he unhorses his opponent and it never involves melee combat. It's horseshit to claim that Jaime somehow has more experience in personal combat than Aragorn when his own books don't support that.

            That's the thing though, Uruk-Hai aren't jobbers. Orcs are. The entire reason why Saruman is such a huge threat, even to Sauron, is because his manufactured Uruks are much, MUCH better than common Orcs and on the same level as trained Men.

              Uruk-Hai are just orcs. It's their endonym. The confusion between these two is because of a throwaway line in the Jackson movies by (IIRC) Gimli. It was meant to show Gimli impressing the seriousness of the situation onto Rohan, to contrast Isengard's orc army with the disorganized "goblins" (also orcs) of the Misty Mountains. But it just created a shitload of internet theorycrafting.

                Uruk-Hai are a unique species made out of the mud. They are literally a weaponized species. Orcs are debased Elves. That is true in both the movies and the books. They were always too different species and even Aragorn noticed Uruks are powerfully built. Its also why Boromir doesnt take Orcs seriously but gets fricking massacred by Uruks. Orcs are Elves minus their grace, wisdom and beauty.

                No, orcs, Uruk-Hai, goblins are all the same species. They "multiply like flies" which to a medival person would suggest they come from nowhere like, say, a mud hole. The distinguishing feature of Isengard's Uruk-Hai is that they are disciplined and trained. "Hai" is the orcish name for "people, group" and "Uruk" is just "orc" in orcish. Their training at the hands of a enlightened master (as opposed to being used en masse by Sauron or allowed to drift aimlessly like in the Misty Mountains) gave them a sense of nationalism and so they understood themselves to be different from their cousins. A nice critique of post-Napoleanic European nationalism, by casting it as hubris. And of all the people in The Fellowship, Boromir would be the last to underestimate the Uruk-Hai because he had the most experience fighting them before joining The Fellowship.

                No. Orcs are a creation of Morgoth who specifically created them as a frick you to Noldor and Illuvatar and his Elves. Orcs were made from stone like trolls and haphazardly created but reproduce on their own. They are a fully distinct species. Uruks are literal MAN-ORCs hence their name. Saruman used the same forbidden technique as Morgoth but cut the Uruks with human blood and mud and made them as functional weapons instead of a frick you joke. Uruks unlike Orcs do not have souls. Uruks cannot criticize Sauron or Sauman like Orcs and its heavily implied the Uruk leaders are Half-Orc rape babies from kidnapped Rohan women because that's the only way Saruman could get a free thinking Uruk.

                Yes but the argument is over whether Morgoth or Melkor wired them up. Uruks are living weapons and have always been that way. There wasnt any wiggle room on Uruks. That's why even the movie shows they are manufactured and fanatical like Crusaders. You cant negotiate with Uruks because they are absolutely loyal to their state. The concept of fricking over their master is beyond their comprehension unlike Orcs which live to frick everybody over so they can get ahead. The watchtower sequence has more than a few Uruks disgusted that they are being forced to guard a shithole instead of winning glory for Saruman.

                All Uruks are Orcs but not all Orcs are Uruks.
                The tracker-orc that converses with his Uruk-"friend" while Sam listens in is proof of this. They have distinct breeds.
                It becomes readily apparent that "the dark lord cannot create" simply means that orcs, while living and thinking, have no real souls of their own, and are dependent on a lord to animate their wills. Otherwise they will scatter and live like tribal almost mindless beasts. Like proto-humans except instead of burly neanderthals, theyre like scurrying rats.

                I havent even read your posts but I know youre wrong. Everyone is always wrong about orcs
                The first type were the skulking rat-like creatures
                The regular Uruk-warrior type came later, taller than their peers but still very squat and compact. Like a typical turk
                Then the Uruk-Hai were a completely new mixed mutt breed made by Saruman himself, which were straight up bigger and stronger AND could travel in sunlight comfortably unlike all other orcs.
                These are facts.

            aragorn is a spacemarine wearing meter-thick plot armor who has spent his whole life fighting (and he's 80 when the books begin but still completely in his prime) so powerful that sauron actually feared what would happen if aragorn ever actually got hold of the ring

            Aragorn was trained by the Last Arnorian, aka the supermen lineage. They died out because they preferred punching Gods out over conquering. Its not even close to the same. You have to read the books, Aragorn is so much of a legend Sam is in awe hes still alive and said he grew up listening to his tall tales. Hes a huge deal and it's why everyone commits to his plans without question.

                Hes of House Isildur, hes almost seven feet tall, like 80 years old without a wrinkle or grey by the time the Ring starts and the Appendices has his one man war against the Corsairs. It even states that's the reason Denethor is such an butthole, because Aragorn outshines Boromir and could replace either of them if he wanted to as is his right by both law and popularity in Gondor. Isildur himself died in combat against Sauron at 300 years old. Numenoreans are tough to kill. That Wight that the Hobbits steal the swords from was a Numenorean.

        Aragorn is 146 by the time of LOTR and has been fighting a nonstop war for half of it. Hes not even close to a normal human. That's why Elrond's only argument is hes mortal, and Elrond would know personally because he watched his great grandfather and grandfather die. Isildur died at almost 400 years old and Gil-Galad and Elrond would crack on him that hes starting to get grey in his hair.

    Insider here, worked with Gurm and read his draft for books 6 and 7.
    Bran triggered Robert's rebellion and warged as far back as the Duskendale affair, because Jon Snow is Azor Ahai and the Rhollor is the only real god in ASOIAF and he needed to be born of wolf (ice) and dragon (fire). Bran mindraped every single last Targaryen character. Bran is also the Night King and he's pushing for the Long Night. He's the main villain of the show and has orchestrated every single major event in the story and the reason is - he was butthurt for being crippled by Lannister. Not even joking. The war of the five kings and the war for the dawn are his revenge against the world. Gurm has no idea how to shoehorn in Dany's plotline but he said he wanted the Mad Queen route as a failsafe way in case people don't like the time traveling evil Bran plotline (Targaryens were mad anyway even without Bran's interference etc.). Jon Snow will be resurrected and win against Bolton. Stannis dies like in the show and the Pink Letter is not just a taunt. Supposedly the Tyrells and Lannsiter wage war over Tommen and the former defeat both the Sparrows and Cersei until her rescue by Aegon IV whose storyline will end in a shitshow anyway as he's killed by Daenerys (also Varys is burned here like in the books but Tyrion uses talk no jutsu to get on Dany's side and live). A lot of abandoned plotlines are just unfinished and he's expressed the view to just kill off a shitton of characters like Darkstar because he wrote too much stuff that went nowhere.

    TL/DR: we get the Attack on Titan ending with Bran retroactively starting the whole story. Aegon and Cersei are the final human villains. Night King will be killed by Jonsno and Dany's plotline is still a big question mark.

    100% truth. The books are such a mess, and a lot of the plotlines have been leaked in the show that Gurm is afraid of finishing 'em.

    Dayne was better with a sword. But in terms of purely fighting, you'd have to include Robert Baratheon in his prime. The man casually one-handed a warhammer it took Ned two hands just to get off the ground, let alone swing. A lot of people in universe describe Gregor Clegane as a mountain, but if anybody could 1v1 him in pure power it would be young Robert.

    >Was Jaime really the best fighter in all the realm?
    old ass Ned Stark was whooping his ass, then his guards stepped in and stabbed ned in the leg so he couldn't fight anymore
    after that, maybe he was the best

    >GRRM has announced rather than writing the books he will finish the series in cartoon format

    GRRM once wrote a fanfic of Jaime Lannister and a bunch of other non-ASOIAF characters fighting a duel against Rand Al'Thor.

      He has got to stop comparing himself to other authors. No wonder his panties are perpetually knotted.

        That particular comparison is particularly frustrating, because Robert Jordan tried his absolute hardest to finish the books but didn't manage to live to the end, whereas George is trying his hardest to die before they're completed.
        I actually think he made a Faustian bargain and received all of his success, fame and wealth on the condition that the series is never finished. One day he will grow tired of his excess, release the manuscripts for Winds and Dream and then immediately crumble to dust.

        Barely? He's destroyed everyone he fought without even trying. He flew off the horse to dismantle the Titan's Bastard with a fricking wooden staff and he toyed with Khrazz (who is supposed to be the top pits fighter in Meereen) before killing him as well. Never once was he in danger or even lose to being in danger. And he's over 60 doing this. Barristan is easily as good as Arthur Dayne, and if you were to give Barristan Dawn he would be as good.

          >as good as Arthur Dayne
          Barristan himself says and believes otherwise, and he is in a position to know. Westerosi as a rule can't agree that the sky is blue, but none of them doubt for a heartbeat that Dayne was the most gigachad knight and warrior who ever climbed down off a horse.

            The feats say otherwise. If you place a normal sword in the hands of both fighters, it's a literal toss-up.

            Martin tends to write his 'heroic' characters as basically supernatural.

          Dumb and Dumber did that just to shit on the actor that played Barristan because the actor thought they should follow the books more. They did a similar thing with Kit where everyone in the final season was just sitting on him about his height in dialogue.

            Why are israelites like this? They did the same thing to Henry in The Witcher until he couldn't deal with it and left the show. They shit all over the source material of the story they get their greasy kosher hands on, someone calls them on it, then they have a meltdown

            A cautionary tale not to let israelites touch your magnum opus for any reason, no matter how much money they give you

    When was it ever stated he was the best fighter of all time? He was known as a good tourney knight, but even then I don't think they said he was unbeatable or even anything. People seemed way more scared of the Mountain, Hound, and even Ser Barristan.

    I always thought of him as an elite fighter, but never the best.

      Not really, he was a great fighter but not the greatest. Jamie in the book even says as much. He wished he could have dueled various people at some points.

      And when he lost his hand he even said he was never going to be great again. Its generally agreed that Berristan is the current greatest fighter, but upsets in the status happen all the time.

      John is not presented as a great fighter, he knows a lot of good skills but often in the heat of battle, those are forgotten. His fight with the fookin legends shows that.

    In the books, how was Stannis going to do anything other than die? His army is camped in the middle of nowhere and surrounded by 8ft of snow. Winter just started, they can't fricking move outside their tents, and they have no access to food, water or warmth

      I blame Melisandre, she led Stannis to his doom on the false promise of him being Azor Ahai reborn. She even went so far as to try to force the prophecy to be true but giving him that fake ass sword and filling his head with bad interpretations of visions. b***h is no good

      He'll win the battle at the frozen lake and will probably take Winterfell only because of the chaos that'll go on inside it's walls but yh he's probably not surviving to the end. I'll be surprised if he doesn't die in Winds. If he is the first major stand against the Others then he'll probably die there and come back as a wight. I just don't see him coming out of the North alive. But then idk, how many of us could've predicted the events of the books ahead of time.

      They are on an island in the middle of a lake. Their men have been fishing the ice non-stop, they have a tall watch fire in the middle, and they have a raiding party agitating the enemy outside the walls and quite possibly men inside the walls raising tensions to the point where Bolton is forced to tell his armies to attack.
      Best guess is he’s going to look like his army is to be smashed in a pincher move but the Bolton’s allies fall through the ice.

      GRRM gave d&d the spark notes version of the ending, and their final test was the figure out who Azor Ahai was going to be, mimicking when they had to figure out who Jon’s parents were to get permission to get make the series in the first place. Instead they just filmed the spark notes.
