|Part of:||Rider War|
|Broddring Empire||Elves of Du Weldenvarden|
To support the Imperial war machine, Lord Tarrant ordered the citizens of the town to cut down trees from the elven forest of Du Weldenvarden to be used in the construction of siege engines. Unable to tolerate this incursion, the elves openly joined the war on the Broddring Empire.
It was reported that the gates of the city were swiftly destroyed by elven Spellcasters. Tarrant barricaded himself in a tower in the city, although this stronghold did not hold for long. The city was in complete control of the elves.
