Battle of Edgecliffe

Edgecliffe was the site of a horribly bloody battle that took place in the year 558/6 that ended the War of the Celadon.

The battle was named for the rocky cliffs of Renthara where it took place. The rebel forces of Lord Alaron Baranthyr defeated the Ralani loyalists and Alaron slew King Durendil Serati II in single combat and threw his body off the cliffs of Renthara into the churning Sea of Ralas below. The hapless loyalist army was pinned against the sea and decimated by the rebel forces. Over 25,000 Serathian soldiers were either slain or jumped from the cliffs to avoid capture on that fateful day.

After the battle, the island of Renthara was granted independence from the kingdom of Ralas and became the new kingdom of Rennsfar. The remaining Ralani loyalists anointed King Durendil’s nephew; Kelthorn, as the first king of the Ralani mainland realm of Serathyr.
