8- A Familiar Face

I don't know why a pet dog should give a +6 in fighting. I'm assuming that's not on 2 D6.

You've got to feel sorry for Tyrion & Eddard in Game of Thrones. Every other perspective character has (or will have) some sort of familiar. Jon, Bran, Arya & Sansa have direwolves, Dany has her dragons, even Catelyn has a decent share in Robb's wolf. After the first book, Martin does away with the animal companions (aside from the obvious exceptions). None of the PCs* introduced in subsequent books get so much as a pet rat. I'm sure someone with slightly better understanding of the series could throw some light on the reasoning behind this... If any exists that is.

*Coincidentally, perspective character and player charactor can be abriviated to the same two letters. It's almost as if A Song of Ice & Fire was a role-playing game.

San checks?

If A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) is a roleplaying game, then everyone failed their sanity checks. And GRRM is vicious railroading BASTARD DM!

I am amazed he pronounced Baratheon correctly the first time, after hearing it only once.
