The Scarred March... what an appropriate name. -Unknown
This lead to a blood bath of Imperium troops slaughtering villages of peasants on their march north, called the Scarred March, as they left a scar upon the land in which they traveled with burnt villages, farms and people. Using his surprise to his advantage, Bahl used this opportunity to march his entire army straight up to the gates of the Republic capital, Volwick. The siege was destructive, yet short lived. The siege only lasted 2 months before the Imperium were able to break Volwick's walls and invade the city proper. It was by a turn of luck that the Republic wasn't destroyed that day. On the same day the walls fell, reinforcements came from Port Olisar, and Port of Kilmont, who had spent the 2 months gathering help in the forms of other races and beasts. Before Bahl knew any better his army was stuck inside a city full of Republic soldiers, and outside an army of Wood Elves, Cloud Giants, and most importantly an Adult Silver Dragon, named Kahltaax. Within a few days all Imperium troops were killed, or captured, including Bahl, who was captured and executed in front of the City.
