Where was the magic?
Good question. As Mirish was able to move 50% faster into action the Elves had one good shot at using a spell. On their turn they rolled to cast, scored a result of Blast, but as the opposing General was out of sight they had to settle on one of the opposing cavalry as a target. Rolling to cast they scored the same number of successes so were subject to Magic Intervention and the Mirish Casters canceled out the spell. Next turn they were routed off with the Elf soldier unit.
