Alyksberg was located in Cliff Peak Province, and was a fortified Siddarmarkian town, guarding the pass where the East Seridahn flowed out of the Snake Mountains.

During the Siddarmark Civil War Alyksberg was manned by five badly understrength Siddarmarkian regiments, composed mainly of militia, without the newer rifles or new model artillery pieces, making it a vunerable, and strategic target. It was to be one of two objectives of Rychtyr's Vanguard, during the Dohlarian invasion of the Republic of Siddarmark. Later it became the objective of the Dohlarian main body. As the Dohlarian army was scaling the walls, the defenders blew up their own magazines, killing an estimated four thousand attackers, as well as all defenders. (MTAT)
