The 9th knot lead their army into The Vale of Valtaerna. After a long battle, they won, with all their enemies slain. Unfortunately Izevel died, the Duergar left and brought all the dwarven prisoners with them.
The 9th Knot took Sanctuary and had their Bugbear Lieutenants torture the villagers for information. After resting , they climbed The Mountain of the Phoenix to slay it’s guardians and extinguish the first flame of Mitra.
They killed the first guardian, but the phoenix proved too much and chased them, violently, off the mountain.
