After a couple of months of gathering allies and preparing for the attack on the Vale of Valtaerna, the Ninth met with their army just out of sight from the watchtower of Saintsbridge. The Ninth would need to get their army through the watchtower to get inside the vale. To scout out the watchtower they sent Raiju and Ugor to go ahead. Raiju noticed two magical beasts on the roof of the watchtower with the body of a lion, the head of a man and with golden wings. Vael knew from his studies that these creatures would be able to detect them should they come close to the tower, their only option was to quickly get to the roof and kill the beasts. After the beasts were slain and the alarm on top of the tower was disabled, they climbed down the tower and killed everyone inside, sparing none. Unfortunately the events on the tower had not gone unnoticed, and the town of Sanctum was rallying it’s defenders, but it was to late, their enemies were inside the vale and ready for battle.
