They swarmed the southern Tevinter cities of Marnas Pell and Vyrantium, as well as the northern Orlesian cities of Arlesans, Churneau and Montsimmard. The Grey Wardens quickly organized a defense, and despite heavy losses in the besieged cities, the darkspawn were pushed back.
Battle of Hunter Fell Edit
Darkspawn went east and in 3:18 they ravaged the Free Marches, attacking the city-states along the Minanter River. At first Orlais and Tevinter did nothing, preferring to rebuild their ravaged lands. However, steady pressure from the Grey Wardens convinced both nations to send aid. Their armies met with the Wardens in Hunter Fell in 3:25 and destroyed Toth in one of the bloodiest battles in history. It was said that the darkspawn corpses were piled as high as a hundred feet and then burned.
In the same year Marcher states, still celebrating the end of the Blight, were taken by surprise as the victorious armies turned on them. Orlais took Nevarra, while Tevinter claimed Hunter Fell. Marchers fought back, and eventually regained their independence – Hunter Fell in 3:49, Nevarra in 3:65.
