It was destroyed by the Bad Moon and an army of the Gloomspite Gitz lead by Skragrott the Loonking. [1]

The militia led by the Arch-Lector is responsible for dealing with external threats and manning the city's defences while the city watch under led by its captain was responsible for dealing with internal threats.[1d][1e]
