The Phoenix of Llael
A northern city in Llael, boasting key bridges over the Black River.
The Khadoran army waged a brutal series of battles in Riversmet for control of those bridges. Ultimately, the Khadorans were victorious. They chose to make a demonstration of the city to break the will of the Llaelese still resisting elsewhere.
Riversmet was razed to the ground, and bloodthirsty doom reavers were unleashed on the surviving population.
This demoralized the Order of the Golden Crucible army, which was holding the fortified city of Leryn, causing its leaders to open the city gates and surrender.
