//This thread will detail the observable movements of enemy forces. PC's are welcome to post here if they find out where other forces are or enemy camps etc. PC's who feel their character might have noticed such movements too may wish to report them to the War Council as well. If not sure please check with a Plot GM.

See this thread for initial movements:

A large fleet of Silver Crescent and other mixed vessels has departed From Westgate and are sailing west towards Sederra.

At least four dragons are circling the fleet from above.

Two Boyer Scout ships have been destroyed and another limped away to report the fleet sighting.

The farms and lands around Briardusk are burning out of control at the moment and people are running for the city as during the early hours of the morning a huge dragon breathed fiery destruction on the fields and orchards that sustain the people of Briardusk.

The massive red dragon, often seen on the Kuhl/Hilm border, circled the city again and again until huge walls of flame stretched for miles and surrounded the entire city. Militia and soldiers watched helpless as farmstead after farmstead was raised to the ground, many would have perished in the sudden attack.

Surrounded by flame the citizens and soldiery are unable to do anything until the conflagration dies down. Already people are talking about fleeing north to Hilm Castle. Surely they will be safe there?

Three weeks after the attack on Sundance and a week since the daring rescue of survivors of that attack by a large group of adventurers the Cult has begun to move again.

It has become apparent that they now hold all areas south of Hilm to the Nesar Border and as far back as the mountains.

Forward Scouts report that the front waves of the enemy are now making their way through the roughlands in two main groups. Each making a line for the Fort of Last Hope. It is expected they will arrive at the Fort within three weeks.

Even though very little has been heard at all from Vanavar during the entire conflict word is sent to the War Council eventually that the CUlt and Silver Crescent Fleet passed far north of the western edge of Vanavar several days ago.

Predictions estimate the fleet will reach Sederra within the next two weeks.

Sederra has made no move to defend against the incoming fleet further fueling belief that they have already capitulated to the Cult and will allow the Cult to establish bases in Sederra to strike at other nations in Dreger.

Cult forces have been engaged in heavy fighting with large units of Hilm Infantry dispatched to the South after the first invasion of Hilm near Sundance.

A smaller Cult force crossed the border east of Tulam and marched on Briardusk.

Hilm and Toranite soldiers moving south spotted the enemy host and rapidly established defensive positions, the goal being to send runners to Brairdusk to order the Brelin and Hilm units there to evacuate any remaining people.

Over the last 24 hours Cult forces paused in their advance to engage the defensive positions. Severe casualties have been lost the Hilmite armies but their valour held the enemy long enough to evacuate the city.

Early reports indicate that there were no dragons supporting the Tulam army and only a few units of Myrdrachs.

The 21st Hilmite Pikes recorded three Myrdrachs brought down, while other units pitched in for a combined score of Myrdrachs dead. Hundreds of Cult soldiers also fell and a number of Drachs.

Allied losses were high with the Myrdrachs doing most of the damage. Over 370 lost their lives, a further 240 injured and 30 or those seriously.

When word reached the defending forces that the city was clear they withdrew under heavy fire to rendeavous with the Brelin and Hilmite forces taking the remaining citizens north towards Hilm.

Last reports were of the small Cult army burying their dead and beginning to continue their path to Brairdusk.

Cult armies in the southern half of Hilm seem to have stalled their advances towards the Fort of Last Hope. With word of whats occured in Nesar reaching their frontlines it seems several divisions of soldiers are being pulled back from the front lines and are being diverted to the Nesar border near Fort Miritrix.

Meanwhile the army at Vilsa continues to march towards Nith.
