Re: aSoIaF Trivia Game

I had to look up the last guy. The six men who accompanied Eddard to the Tower of Joy were...

Howland Reed...
Ethan Glover...
Theo Wull...
Martyn Cassell...
Lord William Dustin (Yes, Ghost was on the right track here.)... and...
Ser Mark Ryswell.

Where did you find Lord Dustin's first name? I've never seen it given anywhere... My apologies to Ghost!

In any case - your turn!

Re: aSoIaF Trivia Game

I cheated, I went to the summary of the fortieth chapter (Eddard's tenth) of AGOT at the Tower of the Hand.

Okay...

Who were Brienne's first two traveling companions in AFFC?

Re: aSoIaF Trivia Game

I'd be interested to know where they got that information from, as I can't recall it ever being stated in the books, and even Westeros.org lists that the name is unknown...

As to your question - one is Podrick Payne, I think. The other, I'm not sure of...

Re: aSoIaF Trivia Game

I don't really know where I read the name but it was knocking around in my mind so maybe I read it long ago on Tower of the Hand where Boaz went? I always remembered him as Lord William rather than Lord Dustin so I must have read it somewhere

And I knew it was Mark something! Gods be praised, I'm not insane.

Re: aSoIaF Trivia Game

Ghost, it is always gratifying to learn one is not insane. A few days ago, I watched Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom with my niece and nephew. And we've been quoting the following lines back and forth ever since... "He no nuts, he crazy!"

Still looking for Brienne's first two traveling companions...

Re: aSoIaF Trivia Game

Cul, you are thinking of Brienne's fourth traveling companion, Ser Shadrich, the Mad Mouse. I applaud your efforts.

In order to keep this game moving along, I'll give some hints... Brienne met two knights who shared their dinner with her. The elder knight was nicknamed "The Penniless" and the fatter one claimed to have done great deeds at the Blackwater, he called himself "of Longbough." So these two companions are Ser ______ the Penniless and Ser ______ of Longbough.

Re: aSoIaF Trivia Game

Ah, Boaz You're clues are music to my ears as I always link up names with ancillaries and titles.

Ser Illifer the Penniless (isn't there an Illifer the Penniless on these boards? Or is that somewhere else?)

Ser Creighton Longbough

I'll leave you to correct me in case I'm wrong!

Re: aSoIaF Trivia Game

Okay, I'm feeling a little uninspired so I'm going to pawn you off with this one.

What is the name, house and age of Walder Frey's latest wife? (during AGOT when she is introduced).

Re: aSoIaF Trivia Game

I remembered she is 16 from the question I asked about Wlader a while back. She standing next to Walder when Cat is brought to him, near the end of AGOT. WSHile her age is mentioned, her name is not, so technically, the question is flawed, but I researched it (after reading the relevant part in AGOT) and it's Joyeuse Erenford, so Joyeuse of House Erenford?

What was the name and profession of her "husband"?

How many ships was theon to command on his reaving trip

What was the "only true thing" she said to him on their ride?

How many ships was Theon to command on his reaving trip north?

How many ship was Asha to command?
