Topic: Lannister - 7 Castle analysis
Posted: 2021-Oct-16 21:53
Couple more points on reflection:
More than half these wins require a conquest of greyjoy.
Tyrell should be more afraid of you than you of tyrell (they might QoT stony Sept but they won't end the game controlling your castles).
Once we hit the middle game we should have 3 stony septs: the original stony Sept but also harrenhal (if you are above baratheon on the iron throne (worth it despite super stannis) and control Blackwater (which you should) a raid from Blackwater to crackclaw makes harrenhal unreadable support) and eventually ironmans Bay.
Just like tyrell ironmans Bay is your meal ticket. While tyrell are only your 3rd best prospect to conquer you will want the same areas so be on guard. Based on my tyrell analysis lannister is 5 times more likely to conquer tyrell than vice versa.
Never forget ironmans Bay is to you what the narrow sea is to baratheon. Early game to paraphrase yoda in attack of the clones
"around stony Sept, a perimeter create" with your midgame objectives being to prepare to backstab greyjoy and lock down either ironmans or harrenhal as a 2nd unraidable support hub.
If you manage to get all 3 you really should be winning this game bar a timely Web of lies.
