The brother-tribe of the Rhugha, the Ronhass would have annihilated the Rhugha but for the intervention of the other tribes. The Ronhass were one of the first to fall before Sulm’s iron shod might. While Sulm’s legions marched, the Rhugha’s chieftains argued in the Great Council against the other tribes coming to their aid. Before the matter could be resolved, the battle was all but over. While their horse archers enjoyed much greater mobility than Sulm’s legions, the Sulmite host nullified this advantage by destroying or garrisoning the few dependable sources of water in the Ronhass’ heartlands. Brought to battle by Sulm’s dishonorable and savage tactics, the desperate Ronhass cavalry failed to break Sulm’s well-ordered and disciplined infantry and were destroyed piecemeal or hunted down over the following months and years.
