The Chosen tracked down the army of Arnavale – composed of the few thousand professional soldiers of the 22nd Imperial Foot as well as several thousand irregular militias levied from different villages.
Caerholm, now commander of the Arnavale forces, decided to encamp the army atop Hadavar's Hill and fortify it against the oncoming enemy onslaught.
The battle was bloody and fierce. The sheer numbers of the monstrous horde turned the tide in their favor and for a few frantic moments it seemed as if the human army would be annihilated to a man. However, the Chosen, through their leadership and combat skills, managed to turn the tide of battle. They fought the Red Horned One and his retainers in close combat and Leonid struck the killing blow, slaying the Red Horned One and breaking the will of his army.
The monsters fled the field, killing and trampling each other in their haste to escape. No sane commander could call the day a victory considering the losses the Arnavalian army endured. But the humans survived and the Duchy, what was left of it, was saved.
The Chosen returned back to the capitol of Vor Calba, to report to the Bloodknight and bring news of their victory.
