If Rodrik/Asher suggests for evacuation before the battle

edited January 2016 in Game Of Thrones

Does anyone think Rodrik could suggest evacuating the smallfolk before the gate falls, like he could take them to the Ironwood Grove to reduce casualties? Or Asher could do it too before setting up an ambush towards Ludd? To me their decisions in defending Ironrath are not smart enough, it does sound cowardly but I think they should consider the safer stuff in this situation.

  • They'd eventually be screwed if they went to the Grove. It's part of Ironrath. Any Grove outside Ironrath would've been impossible to get to.

  • Honestly that entire battle was terrible. They did literally zero smart things and mounted no actual defense. So many options:

    1. Evacuate as you said
    2. Shield wall in front of the gate
    3. Defend the damn wall, don't just have five guys take potshots
    4. Fight in the keep, not just the courtyard
    5. Retreat to the grove and fight there
    6. Literally anything else
    1. They could've evacuated the way they sneaked into the Whitehill Camp.
    2. I believe we have the option to shield the gate but somehow the shield things disappears.
    3. I don't think they had that many men, so it's kind of excusable.
    4. Agreed, they could've used the environment to their advantage, they know Ironrath more than anyone right?
    5. Agreed.
    6. Pretty much.
