When Gelu's forces were cutting off the kreegans' escape routes before the attack on Kreelah, Kieran reported that his team had spotted a group of demons near Moortanis, trying to sneak across the border into AvLee. But before Gelu's scouts could act, the demons were slain by a horde of halflings, wielding slings and shortswords. The halflings then disappeared into well-hidden tunnels. Stunned at the swiftness and ferocity of the attack, Kieran and his team went down to take a look at the battlefield.
Gelu's forces believed that this ambush was the first time it was proven that some of the halflings that used to live in Eeofol were still alive.
