two groups of rangers, the ice watch and the night watch? Possibly. But in that case perhaps the ice watch was patrolling the Fist.
The wildlings never used the Fist as an en masse camp. Perhaps they knew not to.
Aren't these, alone, enough to demonstrate that the Wall was built to block wargs?
was Ghost stopped from 'seeing' his siblings when ghosting north if the Wall?
there is a quote somewhere about the 7 kingdom people disregarding/distrusting skinchangers. So I'd say it is more a cultural shift than a a consequence of the Wall. The Andal religion and the rise of the maesters being at the root of it.
you have both lost me...i am familiar with Route 66. I will stick to that one!
Do we know whether all of the wights are men been killed by Others? or that some have also been killed by the Mist?
The wildlings burn the bodies of the dead regardless of them having been by Others, the Mist or non Other related causes.
Othor and Jafer were already wighted when found by Ghost. In day time, hence dormant. They were carried in their dormant state thru the Wall into Castle Black. When night came they revived. And continued their mission.
Whether they were guided/ice-changed during that 'mission', I am not sure. The wights have a smigeon of memory left in their bones (red blood cells still kicking) and the bones remember, so they may well have been on auto-pilot.
As I suggested, their mission may have been Ben Jen telling them: 'bury the horn and dragon glass' and go and report to the LC'.
Which what they tried to do....except of course that in the mean time they acquired a taste for warm flesh and blood.
hmmm, that is speculative. The land bridge may have been finally severed as a result of the LN.
