The Riverlands and the location of Seagard (red)[1]

Seagard is a town and castle in the Riverlands. It is the seat of House Mallister. Located on the western coast of the Riverlands along Ironman's Bay, Seagard is sheltered by the Cape of Eagles and is nestled near the headwaters of the Blue Fork.[2] It is southwest of the Twins and northwest of Oldstones.[3]

Contents

Castle

Seagard was built to defend the coast from ironborn reavers.[4]

Town

The Booming Tower in the town is named for the immense bronze bell, used to call the townsfolk and others into the safety of the castle when longships are sighted.[4] The Mallisters have a small fleet of six longships and two war galleys to defend the region.[5]

History

During the Greyjoy Rebellion, the bronze bell of the Booming Tower rang for the first time in three hundred years, when longships under the command of Rodrik Greyjoy attacked Seagard. Lord Jason Mallister killed Rodrik beneath the castle walls and threw the ironmen back into the sea.[4]
