Three things that have niggled me about these novels.
One: A league equates to three miles (though there are many variations on the definition of the term). GRRM seems to be under the impression that it signifies a measure of distance much shorter than a mile, which presumably is why he frequently writes of characters or locations being a thousand leagues away which in the real world would equate to the distance between the North Pole and Malaga, when he clearly intends a distance of some hundreds of miles;
Two: Keeps. GRRM frequently, vaguely, refers to castles as having multiple towers and keeps, apparently blithely unaware that the keep was the largest structure and the highest point in a castle, and that therefore in any castle (well, apart from one prominent example in France) there was only ever one keep in any one castle, not lots of them;
Three: Lobstered steel. He frequently uses this adjective - which he seems to have invented - to refer to the finely segmented overlapping armour plates used in expensive suits of armour to protect the lesser, smaller areas such as the joints, where a lot of small plates would have been needed to ensure protection as well as flexibility.
George The word is 'loricated'. You could have googled it. Really.
Alright . Rant over. Those are trivial quibbles I concede.
