Ruhgaia - The Cross Pass MassacreElswyr had entered the pass, a place known as the slaughterfields, and immediately saw how it'd earned the name.It was a mass grave. Heir and Guild bodies, strewn about, rotting. She gulped and gripped the handle of her runeblade nervously. Their force had moved into the pass as part of a new offensive, specialty soldiers for dealing with the footmen of the heretical heirs and anti-dragon magicians. It was all done swiftly and discreetly, so the forces at Baygate couldn't adjust their tactics beforehand.She still felt something was wrong when the southern wall on the enemy side was the only one that opened. Cavalry poured through, mounted on their striders, leading a veritable mob of soldiers. The unfortunate souls still under the yoke of royal oppression, she quietly noted to herself.It was her first battle. She prayed it wasn't her last. The Heirs hit the Guild lines in force, pounding the shield-bearers with aggressive force.
