A Clash of Kings

Avoiding the kingsroad, Yoren's band arrives at the eastern side of the river running south from the Gods Eye. Yoren creates search parties for finding a ford to cross the river, with Woth and Gerren going downstream and Yoren and Koss searching upriver. When they return at midday, Woth reports a burned-down bridge, but none of them has found a ford. They move on that day to a town on the southern shore of the Gods Eye where Yoren intends to rent a boat for crossing the lake, but the town is deserted. Since Woth's galley experience makes him the next best thing to a sailor the group has, he leads a search party with Arry, Gendry, Hot Pie and Lommy Greenhands for finding a boat at the lakefront. When Lommy and Hot Pie want to search an inn for food and ale instead, he snaps at them, pointing out Yoren's orders. He also reprimands Arry when she is idle at the lakefront. However, despite all their efforts they find no boats.[2]

They spend the night at the abandoned holdfast of the town. When Arry is the first to be alarmed that night by a dream of a howling wolf, Woth tells her that the wolves are outside and cannot storm the holdfast. However, Arry's foreboding was on point and the whole town is burned down that night by men under the command of Ser Amory Lorch. They order Yoren's band to open the gates of the holdfast in the name of the king, to which Reysen demands in which king's name, earning him a cuff by Woth. In the ensuing attack by Lorch's men, Woth is the first killed, his neck impaled by a spear meant for Yoren. Yoren orders Lommy to pull out the spear and take Woth's place.[2]
