Battle Of The Bloodspear

In 976 YK an orc tribe called the Bloodspears descended from the area of what is the Great Crag in Droaam today and swept towards the township of Fallcrest. Cut off from reinforcements from Breland, the meager armies of West Breland, including Fallcrest’s small force, were defeated in a rash attempt to halt the Bloodspears out on Gardbury Downs to the west of the town. The Bloodspears burned and pillaged much of Fallcrest and went on to wreak havoc all across the region, prompting King Boranel to close the area west of the Graywall Mountains. All those who stayed were warned that they would not be considered Brelish citizens and would not be protected from further incursions. Despite this warning, nearly two-thirds of the population of Fallcrest stayed to rebuild.
