Writeup: Pouring out from the fortresses known as the Timber Veil, the Aryisan armies move north into Tesh. Raiding parties sack small villages in Narton and Cantor. The Razanians lose critical months, each of the three kingdoms unable to set aside their petty differences in the face of the common threat. Finally, the combined forces of Narton, Tesh, and Cantor meet the Aryisans in the village of Falan, an insignifigant settlement on the Tesh-Cantor border. The Cantorans defend the village proper, while Tesh takes the left flank and Narton the right. However, soon after the battle begins, the Teshian army breaks its engagement with Duke Iyan's personal retinue and retreats north, into the heartland of Tesh. Seizing the oppurtunity, Duke Iyan smashes into the flank of the Cantoran army and routes it. Seeing that the battle is lost, the Nartonans manage to make an orderly retreat to the east, but their backs are now to the ocean. Fresh from its swift victory, the Aryisans blitz north, capturing the city of Cantor and taking its King prisoner. The few remaining Cantoran forces are pushed north, into the Mountains of the Rim. Southern Tesh and most of Cantor are now under Aryisan occupation. The Nartonans protect a few costal regions, and the northern Cantor is under threat of liberation by the Cantoran refugees. Narton managed to escape relatively unharmed, but much of this year's harvest is lost, pillaged or burnt by Aryisan raiders.
