So today I went to the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards and Sam Claflin skipped by saying “sorry I can’t stop, I’m late and I’ve got to mush on through.”
“Acting is fun and I refuse to get involved in the semantics and the politics of strategy and breaking out of something or doing something because you need to do something else. For me it’s all about what fuels my soul and if I’m passionate about a screenplay then that’s what I’ll do next.”
The Field of Fire
King Loren of the Rock had joined forces with King Mern of the Reach in an attempt to throw the Aegon’s men back. Between the two kings they had roughly 55,000 men, of which 5,000 were mounted knights. Aegon had a fifth of that number, mostly conscripts from previous conquests. The two armies met on a field in the Reach.
Jon Mooton of Maidenpool, one of the first lords to come over to the Targaryens, was given command of the Targaryen army. The field which the battle was fought on was quite dry that day. The allies charged and started to break the Targaryen lines. But then all three Targaryen dragons took to the air and began to set the field aflame on all sides, especially downwind of the allies while Mooten was upwind. Of the allies, 4,000 died in the fire while 10,000 men suffered burns. Of the Targaryens less than 100 were lost while Visenya took an arrow to the shoulder.
It was the only time in the conflict that all three of the Targaryen dragons took to the battlefield at the same time. Between Vhaghar, Meraxes and Balerion they killed four thousand men outright, burning them alive. King Mern died, with him House Gardner. The army was broken and Aegon I was victorious.
