Battle of Alcazar
They clashed upon the floodplains of the river with an advance force sent by King Ramos of Torleon. The warriors of Torleon used an enormous pike square and crossbows to keep the mounted Sand Elves at bay before the Kaliti footmen charged into the pike square.
Torleon knights bravely charged against Ashuanar's sipahi cavalry, but both sides suffered heavy casualties when the sorceress Visha Sofka let loose a barrage of indiscriminate destructive magic.
While these two forces clashed, Douglas Haley led the Band of the Lion in an effort to rescue the city of Alcazar from the siegeworks set up by Tinus Damos' Kellish mercenaries who worked for Torleon. In the ensuing clash, Douglas was grievously wounded. Near death, he called upon his magical heritage and unleashed some of the power he had siphoned from Drakormir's body in Elbion. A magical hurricane formed over Alcazar, obliterating much of the city's outer wall, killing thousands, including their king, Andal II.
Gerra, seeing the battle's primary objective of defending the city lost, ordered a retreat and defended the rearguard against the Frost Giant Ormr. He was saved by a Sand Elf sheikh's daughter, Cyra Al-Dushar, and her bow as she distracted Ormr and gave Gerra time to escape.
