At Slinkmaiden in Rotten Tooth province, Dullard Starkcrazy was attacked by Hywind Landblaster. The Lord of Winterhell was easily out-scouted as his son Rubb had predicted. They were evenly matched – the same sized army and the same number of mercenary units and no magic present. In the open fields near Slinkymaiden, the Lord of Bastardly Rock won a narrow victory. Nothing spectacular, but the invasion of Landblaster was choked from the outset.
The Starkcrazys lost a couple of units and retreated toward the lands of the blitzerwolves. The Landblasters harried them out all the way. They stopped at the border where Hywind smiled his crooked grin and contemplated his next move north. But that wouldn’t happen till next spring.
The lion of the Landblasters had clawed (but not devoured) the blitzerwolf of the Starkcrazys.
