I have no idea if that child speaking here is actually Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran), or whether it's a double who's meant to be him, or even if the boy is even meant to be Bran at all. You only see the back of his head, and only in a single shot at that. In the books, Bran, Rickon and the other Stark children are sat alongside their mother at the high table whereas in the show they're nowhere to be seen. Arya, Sansa and Robb are eating with the common folk so it can be presumed that the other Stark children are out there somewhere. Due to child labour laws, the children are often cut from scenes where they only appear from the background as it means the production crew can spend more time on the scene. Then of course there's the saying of don't work with children or animals (a proverb which GoT breaks spectacularly) meaning that any scene involving child actors will take considerably longer. From my experiance with filming with children, I can wholehartedly support this advice. Or perhaps it's just one particular child who was a pain to film with...
Turns out proffesional child actors don't spend two hours arguing over how he should be allowed to read his lines off the script.

I'm really enjoying this :) It's a lot of fun to read.

Just one thing - did you change the GM's speech bubble's colours again? I can read them fine in Comic 20, but I've been struggling to read them in the last two.
