The Battle of the Forkwoods was a battle fought between the forces of the Northern Atlas Alliance and the United Southern Alliance during the war known as the Atlas Coalition War. This battle marked a clear tipping point between the Northern Atlas Alliance and the United Southern Alliance, with the Northern Atlas Alliance later laying siege to the Kingdom of Norland's capital of Ruriksgrad.


The Northern Atlas Alliance's, also known as the N.A.A for short, victory at the Battle of The Rolling Hills had paved its way for the Northern Atlas Alliance's advance further into Norland territory and later leading to the Battle of the Forkwoods itself.




With the Battle of the Forkwoods won the Principality of Curon would break the pact while the preparations for the siege on Norland was beginning, the alliance would then sought out to deal with the Curonic people for breaking the pact. A vassal of Renatus, Count Eimar, before being stopped on the march towards Ruriksgurd by the Lord Marshal Antonius Horen to set up a camp to deal with the Curonic people for their traitorous actions. Thusly leading to the Storming of Cyrilsburg before the Siege of Ruriksgrad.
