X59 : Bloodraven was always unconventional, even for a bastard of Targaryen and a Blackwood As you will see in this chapter, the Ironborn actions in the West are going to be in reaction for a little problem.
The problems of the North will indeed involve the Night Watch. Wildlings and White Walkers tend to have this kind of effect. Dacey will not be in big trouble, as Robb will realise quickly it was Arya who had the idea of this, not the Mormont woman. The sword that was recuperated by the Starks was Tommen's sword. As for what happened to the second, you will have to wait for a bit, I promise though it will be interesting When you will see what happens in the Vale, you will realise Lysa has far more to worry than the anger of her elder sister and her brother Master of Dragons God: Yes, the fire killed a lot of nasty persons, but it killed also a lot of innocent persons as well.
Don't forget that. Guest s : Yes, the Starks are far nicer to their smallfolk population than the rest of the Sven Kingdoms, though given how certain lords use their servants I'm looking at you Cersei Matt Quinn: Thanks! The mistake has been corrected. The irony of non-Faith believers enforcing the edicts of a Targaryen king was intentional, though by that point most warriors were ready to seize any excuse to avoid fighting these fanatics ever again.
Both sons of Mors died at the Trident. Thanks to have noticed it. Perwyn and Little Walder were the most logical choices in terms of dynastic successions.
I chose Aenys for Harrenhal because he's exactly the type of knight everyone wants to be rid of. House Mooton wasn't disloyal per se; they did absolutely nothing in this war. But that's part of the problem, as they were former Targaryen loyalists in the previous conflict and in this one they refused to hear the summons of their Lord Paramount. Which is very close to disloyalty in everyone's book. The answer of the Iron Bank will be long in coming.
They are definitely not pleased by the outcome of the battle, needless to say. As for the great enemy, I don't have any reason to hide it is the White Walkers. The wildlings, despite their numbers, took quite a beating in canon when Stannis army took them by surprise. Daenerys is going to be a threat, but not for humanity as a whole. Ice abominations bent on exterminating anything that lives, on the other hand The Thrall Rebellion. When one spoke about the Iron Islands in Westeros, it was usually not in positive tones.
Even avoiding any sort of comments on its inhabitants, the simple truth was that there was really nothing welcoming in this archipelago of the Sunset Sea. The islands were stony, small, of dubious fertility to harvest any sort of culture and frequently wrecked by storms. Despite the plentiful fish reserves near the islands, fishing was an extremely risked activity due to the climate. Farming was a tiring and inglorious affair.
Both activities made sure most of the men were drunk after the sun set, angry their efforts gave them so little return. No wonder most of the Ironborn considered reaving the gift of the Drowned God. Reaving, as it was, gave another opportunity for the inhabitants of the Iron Islands.
Working in the mines of the Iron Islands was a back-breaking and dangerous labour, which no one in his right mind would want to do. Thralls captured in the reavings, however, would not have any choice. It was the best of both worlds for the Ironborn: they obtained the iron, lead and tin they wanted, while letting other persons do it in their place. The opinion of thralls did not even enter their mind. Perhaps it should have: for all their insistence that thraldom was not slavery, in practise no one was able to tell the difference.
Life expectancy in the mines was measured in months, and when an accident happened frequently as even a lord of the Westerlands was more careful with his workers ; the number of casualties was in the two digits. The elder surviving brother of Balon Greyjoy was proclaimed king by a large majority of the captains gathered here , killed the captains who didn't swear him their fealty in the aftermath , and then sailed southwards with the entire military might of the Iron Islands , the Iron Fleet and hundreds of longships.
Erik Ironmaker was left behind, taking the position of Pyke's castellan. Or maybe, to be more accurate, Erik was not able to control the Iron Islands with the forces his new king had left him. To be fair to the new acting-castellan of Pyke, the issues that had to be solved were huge. Less than a month after Euron's departure, a relative unknown cousin of Baelor Blacktyde named Quellon Blacktyde claimed the lordship of Blacktyde, and convinced most of the other men left at Blacktyde Castle to follow him in purging the men loyal to Euron III.
All over the islands, the attempts to kill the priests of the Drowned God by Euron's loyalists unleashed insurrections against the Greyjoy Rule. At Ten Towers, Asha Greyjoy mustered approximately men, and there was little opposition at Harlaw for any lord or captain to oppose her. Erik Ironmaker and his subordinate commanders tried to retaliate, but their task was next to impossible. The king of the Iron Islands had stripped the archipelago bare from men of fighting age which for an Ironborn, was from 13 to The ones who remained, some Codds, Goodbrothers of the cadet branches, some Farwynds, proved unable to stem the tide of the revolts.
On Great Wyk, several small-scaled battles took places, with places like "Corpse Lake" truly earning their name. The Iron Islands were aflame, and no man had the power to oppose it: Erik Ironmaker was not able to walk, never mind fight. His grandsons, Urek, Thromor and Dagon all perished one after another trying to subdue insurrections in Great Wyk.
Needless to say, what was left of fighting capacity in the Iron Islands quickly disappeared in this series of military actions.
For all their boasts of warmongering and intrepidity, the Iron Islands had a very low density of population, and were not in the same category as the rest of the Seven Kingdoms.
Even Dorne, the weakest region of Westeros in terms of population, had more men than the Ironborn. But this had been before AC. Before Balon Greyjoy decided to rebel a first time, and received the treatment of those who had the temerity to anger Robert Baratheon. Before Balon Greyjoy decided to rebel a second time, lost hundreds of men in the swamps surrounding Moat Cailin, the cold lands of the North, the defences of Lannisport. Before Euron took the last reserves to the Reach.
Before insurrections to support the Drowned religion killed the last men at home. After this, no matter what had been thought, the Ironborn had almost no military capacity left. It was time for the not -so-free population of the Iron Islands to act.
As said before, being a thrall was often a fate worse than being a slave in the Iron Islands. Being a slave meant you could be sold to a master who would value your existence. The Ironborn had no care for human life. A thrall's life was a hell, a life of privation and misery in the mines or any other dangerous work the lords and masters of the Iron Islands wished to not do themselves. The less said about what was done to the salt wives, the better.
With too few men to guard the thralls and the rest of the enslaved population, most of them did not let this chance pass. No record was kept where the first attempts to revolt were made, but Great Wyk and Old Wyk were prime contenders, with their own population already fighting each other.
The Thrall Rebellion, as it was the name it entered history, was not a rebellion but a series of massacres of horrendous proportions. Some thralls had been reduced to this state of slavery for generations and the wells of anger accumulated were deep. For the thralls or salt wives who had been once free in their lives, it was even worse. In these circumstances, there was no "acceptable limit " or "rules of war" which were acceptable.
Every woman, man or child who had the bad fortune to cross the way of the thrall insurrection died in atrocious sufferings. Men were drowned again and again in front of their tortured wives. Children were torn apart and thrown in the waves, a sinister parody of the Drowned Priests traditions. Houses were set aflame, usually with their owners inside it. Food supplies were poisoned, burnt or thrown into the seas. As there was a real lack of ships to return to the continent, bands of former thralls and salt wives roamed all across the Iron Islands, killing every living being they encountered.
Great Wyk, Old Wyk , Saltcliffe, Blacktyde, and Orkmont fell to an orgy of violence rarely seen in this world , making an ironic statement of all the atrocities the Ironborn were doing in the Reach.
Only Pike and Harlaw managed to resist the waves of destruction.
