Thistledelve. Diplomacy is failing. Thistledelve is the last tribe but also the strongest. Littlebrook armies attack in some skirmishes. Furrow Hills provide great protection to the town from attacks from the south. Thistledelve then comes under full blown attack from the hill tribes and Orcs of the mountains. It turns out that the volcano is looking likely to erupt at any stage - which is causing the barbarians to flee the mountains - hence their biggest attack ever. Eldred stops attacking Thistledelve and comes to their aid in a big turn-around.
