Events of The Last War
The Highwater Massacre
In the garrison town of Highwater in Thrane, bordering Cyre, residents awoke one morning to find scattered through the streets and outlying area a number of officers of the army and three civilians brutally and messily slain. Eleven bodies in total, all killed within the space of a single evening. Not a single witness came forward with any information as to how the murders were perpetrated in such a secure location. As a result of the deaths as well as the ensuing panic deployment of the troops stationed in Highwater was set back for weeks, contributing to Cyran victories on the front line.
