The negotiations between the two cities quickly turned sour when Vanech, a priest of Daggerfall, substituted the real treaty for a fake one to give offense to King Camaron of Sentinel.
It enraged King Camaron. He smuggled a message out to his guards. The guards started a riot. The guards of both cities clashed until eventually with the city in ruins they withdrew to Cryngaine Field.
The war would continue until both kings were killed during the Battle of Cryngaine Field. After the battle Sentinel would formally give up the claim to Betony.
