The captains of Harlaw have come but few others. Rodrik informs Asha that Aeron Greyjoy has called for a kingsmoot, an assembly of all captains to choose the king. Rodrik assures Asha that her cause is hopeless, since no woman has ever ruled the ironborn. Even the support of Rodrik does not mean his vassals will support her. Their fealty is for war purposes only. In a kingsmoot they are allowed to vote as they please. Rodrik councils Asha to stay away from the kingsmoot on Old Wyk. Besides her lack of support, he is afraid that Euron Greyjoy will kill his competitors. Rodrik offers to give her Ten Towers instead.
