To Stand Against the Red Moon
Battle of Runegate
In 1608, the Lunars undertook the conquest of Sartar, and marched an army to Runegate Prince Salinarg led the army of Sartar against them, accompanied by King Jarstakos of the Colymar. The night before the battle, an army of undead marched out of the Upland Marsh and attacked, killing many Sartarites, including the father of Asta and Dagmar.
The next day, the Lunars attacked. After a fierce battle, the Lunars sent in the Crimson Bat, which devoured the whole city. Only those hiding under the Luck Gate survived. Jarstakos and many of the Orlmarth thanes perished. Morganeth Whiteye was present at the battle and the sight of the Bat destroying the city destroyed her sight.
