The port town ambush is the first violent encounter following Ramsay Snow's declaration of open war between Houses Whitehill and Forrester. The Whitehill garrison, led by Gryff Whitehill, attempt to ambush Rodrik and Asher Forrester after the latter makes landfall with his pit fighter forces.
Preceding Events Edit
The ambush is triggered by Ramsay Snow, who announces that Houses Forrester and Whitehill are to do battle until only one house is left standing - and that the victor will take control of the Ironwood business.
After the traitor releases Gryff and his garrison, they plan (with Ludd Whitehill) to attack Asher as soon as he makes landfall. After Rodrik Forrester imprisons the traitor or kills him, he and his men ride for the coast to protect Asher and bring him back to Ironrath.
