Auditor’s note: “The devastation wrought by this attack is staggering. While previous attacks on the city have resulted in the destruction of the mainland districts, none involved such a horrific number of casualties. Much of this can be attributed to the destruction of the Baylocke Bridges. Had the Shattered Blades not arrived, the whole of the mainland districts would have been lost, and drenched in the blood of civilians. However, were it not for the brave efforts of those Wyrmclaw Legion militiamen who gave their lives in defense, not a single civilian would have remained alive by the time the Shattered Blades arrived.” -Giselle Malandra
