With the Invasion of Anaea, the Dragon-riders, who had engaged their Wars in the whole continent, get in direct contact with the Dragon Empire and the potential of such numbers of living dragons was something that they would not allow themselves to miss.
When SiMevolant announced his takeover of the title of Tyr in front of a crowd, he also revealed the pact with the Andam and the Dragon-riders: Dragonblade announced himself as governor-general of the Lavadome. Such declaration shocked many, especially an enraged Tighlia who attacked Dragonblade but was slain by the expert dragon-slayer.
The whole Lavadome fall into a state of chaos in a matter of hours and taking the opportunity, the Dragon-riders entered in Lavadome forming two long lines: their force was composed by 3 scores of dragons with riders and half-score of dragons to bear baggage or supplies: 42 dragons ("few wings over forty" in the dwarven ten-count numbering).
There was no organized resistance, only a score (a dozen) of dragons individually attempted to challenge them, just to be all killed: such heavy losses were probably caused by the deadly poison of the crossbow's darts and the fact that the Lavadome dragons attacked without being led or organized in battle.
Among the killed ones there was UlBannesh, of the Immortal Memory group.
The invaders quickly settled themselves into the Imperial Rock,
Dragon-riders attempted to gain the "sympathy" of dragons in Lavadome organizing some banquettes accompanied by aerial performances of their own dragons.
