Mirish ignored the incursion of the Black Moon Army to focus on decisively defeating The Abyss. It might be said that the Black Moon Army and The Abyss were equally bad and this decision to focus on defeating one in detail was wise. Would events bear this out, or would the military planners of Mirish have egg on their faces by the end of the year?
The Mirish army deployed with skirmishers on each flank. Their centre comprised a front rank with shock troops including their elephants and a rear rank with still more shock troops including all their cataphracts and clibanarii.
In the pursuit, the Mirish army caught and cut to ribbons one unit of ghouls and one unit of zombies. With only one province left and only three units in their army, The Abyss must surely surrender. But no, I rolled a double 1 and they chose to continue the war even though it must surely mean their utter annihilation. One can only think that the Necromancer has a greater plan than mere territorial domination.
