Gazarog's opponent raced his riders across his front in an attempt to wrong-foot Gazarog by shifting the focus of the action from one flank to the other.
As they raced across the front between the two armies the powers of magic coursed through the fetid air ..

A flurry of action saw riders and beasts all fall
Gazarog continued to advance his main line against the enemy.
