Seven Kingdoms: Seowyn's Crossing
Battle of the Burning Sea
In 9 SKR, the War of the God King had reached a climax. Not since the death of Grukh the Bloody-Seer had the victory of the orcs seemed so possible. As Broglarak the Fat’s naval forces held the Eladrin ships on the coasts of Tavanion, orcish marines began slaughtering Elves along the coastal regions of Faerinwold. These two races had born the brunt of much of the fighting, and these battles made them wonder why they had ever tried to forge an alliance amongst the Seven Kingdoms.
The answer came swiftly. the Summerling general Seowyn Greenfields led Summerling knights and soldiers, Gristameri shocktroops, and Dalenshire regulars to the rescue of the embattled elves. As they drove the ships out into deeper waters, eladrin galleons manifested out of the Feywild, led by the Triton’s Horn. They smashed the ships of the marines, then sailed on to raise the blockade in Tavanion. This conflict became known as the Battle of the Burning Sea.
