The Battle of Galahar was a battle during the Great War of Aegis, led by orcish forces commanded by Rex Mogroka'Gorkil, alongside his allies in the Wardens of the Holy Princedom of Malinor, led by High Prince Native and Prince Quazar. The human defenders were commanded by Lord High Constable Felix Farnsworth, who was joined alongside by a small retinue of dwarves from the Grand Kingdom of Urguan, led by Gimrik Braveaxe. The battle began shortly after the dwarven victory at Kal'Urguan, after which the orcs had turned their attention to the dwarves' human allies in Oren. The initial ambush quickly overran the town, before the remaining forces who had chosen to make a last stand within the keep, were massacred by orcish and elven skirmishes who had managed to scale the town's walls. Galahar was occupied for almost a week, before Orenian reinforcements finally arrived. Subsequently, the Grand Kingdom of Urguan and the Kingdom of Oren went on to plan a full scale invasion of the orcish deserts of Krugmar.
