After the assassination of King Gorek the Wise of Riva, Belgarath informed and brought together the Alorn Kingdoms to attack Nyissa as punishment. The Alorn Army assembled quickly and therefore got to Nyissa in the dry season. Allowing the Alorns to burn down the forests of Nyissa before the rains came. With ruthless and efficient Tactics, the Nyissans were destroyed, only a few survived.
