  • The Battle of the Samesaj Gate:
    The eastern garrison of Akkabbel (present-day Ithal Pass) is the scene of great victory for Calimshan, as the besieged forces of Akkabbel gain reinforcements from Calimport through a magical portal. They break the siege and inflict great losses on the beholders. The portal remains intact after the battle, but only its caster (the vizir Ali el Samesaj) knows that it is keyed to the full moon's light more than other magic. This great victory over the beholder forces sees Samesaj raised to the title of Grand Vizir at the right hand of Syl-Pasha Ruj el Drakhon. »
