In 1403 the stables were raided by a squad of bandits led by Runt. The thugs murdered some of the stablehands, including Radek and Franta, as well as Master Smil, before fleeing. Most of the horses were hamstrung but left alive, and Zora and her men were forced to put them down themselves in order to end their suffering.
Henry would learn that the attack was carried out by two gangs - a group of four local thugs (Limpy Lubosh, Reeky, Timmy and Pious) who were told the job was just a robbery and fled once the slaughter started, and Runt's murderous gang, who carried out the killings.
Following their trail would eventually lead Henry to Runt himself, and the hiding place of the two bandit camps at Pribyslavitz and Vranik. Sir Radzig would later observe that the attack was not for revenge, or gold, but to spread fear.
According to written chronicles, Neuhof by Sasau was a noble's court, which was destroyed during extensive floods. The small town of Nové Dvory was built in its place.
