A Clash of Kings Chapter 18

By George R.R. Martin

Chapter 18

Tyrion IV

  • Tyrion meets with Grand Maester Pycelle over breakfast and asks the maester to send a messenger raven to Dorne.
  • Bronn updates Tyrion on conditions in the city and his efforts to recruit troops. The city has reached bakers-being-burned-in-their-own-ovens-for-overcharging levels of nasty.
  • He also lets Tyrion know that a Ser Alliser Throne from the Night's Watch is seeking an audience.
  • Remembering Thorne's contemptible nature, Tyrion decides to put off that meeting.
  • He meets with Petyr Baelish in the Tower of the Hand and proposes a deal. Petyr will go to Lysa Arryn with a message: For her fealty and her soldiers, her son, Robert, will marry Princess Myrcella. Petyr will get Harrenhal for his service to the realm.
  • Next on the meet-and-greet list is Varys. Tyrion tells Varys he plans to persuade Doran Martell to join the Lannisters in the war. He will do this by promising Doran a seat on the small council, his sister's true killers, and Prince Tommen.
