Alphatian Armada Burns
The Glantrian adventurers who were accused of killing General Torenal break into the Imperial Palace’s dungeons and rescue the Erewan elves.
Later, escaping from the continent of Alphatia, they stop in at the city of Aasla, which is the main port of the Alphatian navy’s sky-ship armada. They steal a naval sky-ship and make their escape, starting a fire among several other ships to conceal their departure and delay pursuit.
Unfortunately, before the mages of Aasla can put out the fire, it grows into a firestorm. Amazing amounts of heated air from the sky-ship fire rises from the city; more air rushes in from the surrounding countryside. The fire spreads and the cycle continues, turning the city into an inferno. When all is done, days later, the city is a crumbling acropolis of ash; half its population, especially the non-spellcasting citizens, are dead.
