“Their final stand… every woman, child and man…
Their final outcry… breath… sob… and blink…
There at the utmost edge… at mortality’s brink…
They drew their weapons… and as death grinned…
Tenfold Hordes and Races roared along… victorious song…”
The reinstated High King and his main army had for weeks retreated southward, in hope to reach The Deep Blue either escaping the pursuing enemies or meet reinforcements. But June 1. 1281, in the morning mists at the great plains they saw that another fresh army of enemies stood tall -awaiting the fleeing lot.
Realizing doom was upon them they knew this a glorious death, should anyone escape to one day sing this tale. The small army reordered and prepared to engage the enemies at their front, meanwhile the trailing foes caught up and formed lines at their rear and flanks.
When they spurred their tired mounts and the ranks of foot-soldiers, militia and skirmishers roared forward towards certain death. Their war-cry suddenly grew in strength and numbers, echoing from forests and hills as foes flanks and rears was suddenly rushed by reinforcements to the High King.
Hundreds of banners surged from nearby foothills and forests, smashing into the now panickingInvaders. Eventually turning the tide and bringing victory to the people of The Realm. When that day ended Timberwolf, who at the will of the High King had performed the pardoning and knighting ritual of Kaosfrog. Grabbed his hand and pulled him up, and then they made almost a thousand Heroes, Nobility and common House Banners hear and swear what is now known as the Cleansing Oath, an oath which triggered the Cleansing Crusade.
