Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

Avoiding the Kingsroad, Yoren's band moves north along the eastern side of the river running south from the Gods Eye. One morning, 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 to a village on the southern shore of the Gods Eye where Yoren wants to rent boats to cross the lake, but they find it abandoned. Since Woth's galley experience makes him the next best thing the group has to a sailor, he leads a search party with Arry, Gendry, Hot Pie and Lommy Greenhands to find 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 village. When Arry is the first to be alarmed that night by a dream of a howling wolf, he tells her that the wolves are outside and can't storm the holdfast. However, Arry's foreboding was on point and the village 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]
