The Year and a Fortnight Skirmish, often referred to as The Desolation of Hilda by Humans and Tieflings, is the iconic battle of the Bonesplit March. The battle led to the subsequent defeat of the Humans and Tieflings, the loss of the military spearhead Hilda and, consequently, left the Tieflings weakened and unable to launch any counter attacks against the invading Aasimar during The Quelling.

On [insert date], shrouded in the cover of a moonless night, Orc forces poured out of Gloomwood to the east of Hilda and stormed the walls. By the time the alarm was sounded a handful of Orcs had already scaled the rear wall and engaged Hildian soldiers.
