Only if the artillery uses gunpowder.

did they just say loose then for things like trebuchets etc?

You see Huskar, during the Long Night Bran warged into the future, learned of firearms and how soldiers would shoot when their commander said "Fire!" and then he warged into the past and taught everyone to do the same, so it all makes perfect sense.

I'm sorry, but I fail to see how a very popular series can stand to a event (perhaps mythical) about a guy dying for mankinds sins and cheating death by being brought back to life.

He might be intended to be a stand in for the IRL Almighty.

God knows Everything but for reasons only He can fathom He doesn't intervene or use that omniscience as we mortals would.

I think its a nice take on it.

Obviously, IM is being deliberately absurd, but to say GoT is nothing special is also absurd. ASoIaF is a big, landmark work in its genre, and with the show it's reached an audience that would have laughed at the idea of watching fantasy TV. It's pretty much the first live-action Epic Fantasy TV show to find any sort of success. If you pay attention, there are a hell of a lot of fantasy books getting optioned for TV, and it's almost certainly because networks are rushing to try to find "the next GoT."

And I have to wonder what your definition of semi-popular is and what numbers you're using for that.
