It was three days previously that the mysterious Forjarai army sacked the Serana Republic's coastal fishing town of Thudras. A valued location as Thudras rested near the borderlands, the Republic was eager to push back the mysterious attackers that came on ships from parts unknown. Governor Bromley of Thudras sent out couriers to recruit potential allies for an alliance as the Forjarai army numbered in the tens of thousands, ranging from harpies to demons to Eladrin though mostly monstrous creatures. Among the formed alliance were notable figures such as the Darwin and Melchior princes along with famed mercenaries.
Forming a scouting force, the Imperial prince led his allies through a fishing cave into Thudras and investigated the possibility of a surprise attack. Soon it was determined that the army was more preoccupied with guarding the city's land entrances rather than those from the coast. At a visible island not far away the enemy ships were anchored. Deciding to strike, the prince and his allies ensured the civilians were safe and struck at the town center where the four generals of Forjarai's army had gathered: Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. Together the allies managed to defeat the generals, who were busy building a statue of some sort. The city did suffer some damage due to magical flames but civilian loses were non-existant. The Alliance had triumphed over the conquerors of Thudras, but something had yet to be made clear: why had they invaded in the first place?
