<p style="margin-top:0.4em;margin-bottom:0.5em;">With the Ironborn now in line with the forces of Bolten under the new Reaver of [[Euron Greyjoy]] they would launch themselves in seemingly all direction but mainly in the direction of Lucerne and their allies. There were few neutral parties and outside of [[House Frey]] of whom most believed was waiting to see who was going to win before they chose a side in the war, so that simply left the Kingdom of Seagard of which was a vast kingdom located just east of Westbridge on the eastern side of the Rhine and had been moving towards Lucerne but had remained relatively neutral. The first talks between the Bolten's and the Seagard royalty when extremely poorly after Varish Bolten the weak minded final son of Betha Bolten was sent there as the representative due to the intervention of [[Jordin Bolten]] in trying to ruin the Bolten attempts. Varish would try his best but was a less then intelligant young man and even past that was so young that he didn't understand the intricasies of the situation and  through all of this he had little effect and was sent away. Later the Lucernians would send representatives under Oberyn Martell, and Jack Shephard of whom would offer relative auntonamy and simply wanted Seagard to protect their sealanes, and didn't want any kind of offensive ground force unless the situation with Mordor came to fruition.</p>

Sent with little actual negotiation power and sabotaged by Jordin Bolten further when he sent several hardliners with Varish, the young Bolten would try his best but was a less then intelligant young man and even past that was so young that he didn't understand the intricasies of the situation and  through all of this he had little effect and was sent away.</p>

<p style="margin-top:0.4em;margin-bottom:0.5em;">Following the failed negotiation of the Boltens with the Seagard goverment William Lovie III. would send Mathew Clegane, Oberyn Martell, and Jack Shephard to Seagard in order to expand their relations. Unlike Varish Bolten who had no ability to offer anything true the negotiators and in particular Jack Shephard would offer relative auntonamy and simply wanted Seagard to protect their sealanes, and didn't want any kind of offensive ground force unless the situation with Mordor came to fruition. Florance Seagard herself would tell [[Oberyn Martell II.|Oberyn Martell]] that despite truly wishing for an alliance the time was just not right with the proximity of the Iron Fleet so close to them, and that once the war in Bolten was over she would then agree to this alliance. In the final bit before they left Florance Seagard was secretly given a Magi Stone of Lucerne by Oberyn Martell of whom told her that if she ever was in need of assistence, and the world was quiet to her then she could speak to Lucerne through this and they would do their best to help.</p>

<p style="margin-top:0.4em;margin-bottom:0.5em;">The forces of the Iron Islands would launch a very large force of some one hundred longships against the [[Kingdom of Seagard]] without any warning, and led by [[Asha Greyjoy]] (of whom was trying to save the life of Maron Greyjoy who had been taken prisoner) and Harras Harlaw alongside many other vassals of House Harlaw they would launch up the Yellowsprite river during the night and landed to the north of Seagard with most of their ships. Of these ships Harras Harlaw would lead some twenty ships and about a thousand further north where they would land and move inland towards the [[Seatower]] which was a gigantic Tower that gaurded the northern approach into the area of Seagard. If they took Seatower they would block the escape of the queen from Seagard and on top of that could force defenders away from Seatower itself.  Harras would attack during the night and unprepared for the asssault the tower was taken relatively simply with top level closing a gatehouse which Harras forced them to open by executing a defender of the Seatower every two minutes until the door was opened.</p>
+
<p style="margin-top:0.4em;margin-bottom:0.5em;">Euron Greyjoy knew that the Fleet of Seagard had been historically well positioned to defend against Ironborn raids, and because of this it would take a daring sort of attack to be able to succede. Knowing he needed something else he would send word to Asha Greyjoy his neice of whom had been constantly demanding the release of Maron Greyjoy, and knowing her skill at Reaving he would blackmail her into leading the attack in order to free Maron. In line with this Euron Greyjoy would make the naval force of the Iron Islands that would launch the attack a very large force of some one hundred longships against the [[Kingdom of Seagard]] without any warning, and led by [[Asha Greyjoy]] (of whom was trying to save the life of Maron Greyjoy who had been taken prisoner) and Harras Harlaw alongside many other vassals of House Harlaw they would launch up the Yellowsprite river during the night and landed to the north of Seagard with most of their ships.</p>
   
<p style="margin-top:0.4em;margin-bottom:0.5em;">[[File:Fall_of_Seagard.jpg|thumb|400px]]{{Quote(1)|It seemed to simple that they would raid the Seatower for no reason. I should have trusted my instinct and scoured the seas for more of them before I sent men there. Too late now...|Queen Florance Seagard}}</p>

<p style="margin-top:0.4em;margin-bottom:0.5em;">{{Quote(1)|Walking off the ships you could see the damn tower from nearly two miles away. It was bigger then anything I had ever seen, and I wanted to burn it down so badly.|Harras Harlaw}}</p>
   
<p style="margin-top:0.4em;margin-bottom:0.5em;">With the capture of Seatower Queen [[Florance Seagard]] would order nearly half the defenders of Seagard to move towards Seatower to defend the tower, and for ships from Seagard to scower the Yellowsprite river for the Ironborn. When night came no word had returned of either force, and as Seagard went to sleep the sounds of fighting filled the streets as the Ironborn fleet landed inside the port. The Queen was rushed by her gaurds to try and get her out of the city, but as they made there way out of the western gate they ran into the destroyed elements of the relief army they had sent out who said that the Ironborn that had taken Seatower had ambushed them and destroyed most of the force. Returning into Seagard she would hide herself in the Keep of Seagard to little avail as the city fell to the Ironborn, and Asha Greyjoy took her personal surrender.</p>
+
<p style="margin-top:0.4em;margin-bottom:0.5em;">Of these ships Harras Harlaw would lead some twenty ships and about a thousand men further north where they would land and move inland towards the [[Seatower]] which was a gigantic Tower that gaurded the northern approach into the area of Seagard. If they took Seatower they would block the escape of the queen from Seagard and on top of that could force many of the cities defenders away from the Seatower itself.  Harras would attack during the night and unprepared for the asssault the tower was taken relatively simply with the top level closing a gatehouse which Harras forced them to open by executing a defender of the Seatower every two minutes until the door was opened.</p>

<p style="margin-top:0.4em;margin-bottom:0.5em;">With the capture of Seatower Queen [[Florance Seagard]] would order nearly half the defenders of Seagard to move towards Seatower to defend the tower, and for ships from Seagard to scower the Yellowsprite river for the Ironborn. The Ironborn fleet had by this point hidden itself in the inlets, and the few Seagard ships that located them were swiftly taken down by Ironborn hidden in small boats that overpowered the Seagard ships. When night came no word had returned of either force, and thus the captain of the City Watch would lower the alarm, and they awaited the return of the few ships that hadn't returned, and they would expand the search the next day. Thus as Seagard went to sleep the Ironborn fleet would move into position, and nearly a thousand ground forces also moved towards the city itself from their hiding positions outside the city.</p>

  +
<p style="margin-top:0.4em;margin-bottom:0.5em;">{{Quote(1)|These were a soft people. Years of their fleet protecting their people had made them unaware of what awaited them from a true Ironborn Reaving.|Asha Greyjoy}}</p>
  +
  +
<p style="margin-top:0.4em;margin-bottom:0.5em;">It was the sounds of fighting filled the streets as the Ironborn fleet landed inside the port, and quickly spread out throughout the city, as well as rope climbing troops of nearly a thousand swarmed over the walls themselves and blocked the exits of the city. As the city fell beneath the assault Captain [[Hyde Hunt]] would gather many troops to him, and make his way to the Queen where he and his men gathered the Queen and rushed her through the palace to try and get her out of the city. Hyde Hunt would be captured along with many of the force as they fought their way out of the main gatehouse, but the Queen managed to get through accompanied by her Palace Gaurd Captain [[Hadrian Sea]] and the few remaining men. Believing they had their Queen safe they were shocked as they made there way out of the western gate they ran into the destroyed elements of the relief army they had sent out who said that the Ironborn that had taken Seatower had ambushed them and destroyed most of the force. Realizing that escape was now futile with the loss of the Seatower she sent the relief army into the hills where she commanded them to make by ship northward, but as this happened Harras Harlaw and a small force of Ironborn that had been following the retreating army would crash into them.</p>

[[File:Fall_of_Seagard.jpg|thumb|left|400px|<font size="2" face="century schoolbook" color="White">It had been many years since the Ironborn had threatened Seagard and because of this they were completely unprepared for the Ironborn savagery.</font>]]

<p style="margin-top:0.4em;margin-bottom:0.5em;">{{Quote(1)|No enemy has ever desecrated the Halls of Glaurung in this manner, and I will forever lament my failure in not being able to stop your Seatrash from coming in here|Florance Seagard}}</p>

<p style="margin-top:0.4em;margin-bottom:0.5em;">Hadrian Sea would carry Florance back into the city and away from the massacre, and returning into Seagard she would be hidden in the Keep of Seagard as Hadrian Sea attempted to hold the Keep of Seagard in the hopes of relief coming, or better terms in the worse case. Asha Greyjoy had at the moment of her landing immediatly made her way to the Palace of Seagard in an attempt to capture the Queen and gain victory very quickly, but arriving there had found her missing, and after following her trail found its end when she arrived at the Keep of Seagard. Asha would siege the Keep, and with a horrifying numerical superiority Florance surrendered not wanting her men to die needlessly, and Asha spared the men as a sign of good faith to the Queen. Asha would enter the Halls of Glaurung within the Keep, and this travesty of a non-believer being in the Sacred Halls would cause several Priests of [[Dragonoph]] to commit suicide and Florance to beg forgiveness from the gods.</p>

As they prepared to march forward they were approached by a party of Ironborn of whom warned them that the Queen alongside fifty seven sons of the nobles were now prisoners of theirs in Seagard. Blackmailed into relenting the army of Seagard would be commanded by Florance to stand down and return to their lands while this was settled, and while most did fearing the death of their son or the queen there were many who had no sons, or who were too angry of whom didn't and for these forces they remained camped at the opening of the Seatower cliffs despite commands to stand down.</p>
