The Men of Stone had been ambushed and defeated in deep woods by a cowardly attack from both sides by the Wood Elves of Linwe.
But this time they controlled the theatre of battle. This time they determined the location and moment of attack.
This time they would utterly annihilate their enemies.
The Knights of Ebon Scar and their monstrous lizards caught the Wood Elves in the open and cracked the mass of their forces hard into the centre of the Elven phalanx, even a, far to the west, the Orcs did the same thing.
It didn't matter that the slim creatures fought hard, or that they took casualties themselves.
This was a battle that the Knights of Ebon Scar refused to lose.
The Knights were unstoppable and the Wood Elves of Linwe came to understand their folly in facing them.
