Ragnar's capture[edit]

I am looking for the info about Ragnar's capture. I am sure I have read about it in some novel, but I can't remember correctly. In another site ([[1]]) I have found the following info:

"Toward the end of 3060, Khan Kell took his fourth Wolf Guards to Utrecht, formerly of the Draconis Combine, and challenged the Bears for the contents of one newly arrived Ghost Bear "ark" ship. The prefab buildings and equipment it contained included resources for building entire factory complexes, which the Wolves very much needed. The Ghost Bears accepted the challenge and even allowed the Wolves safcon. Star Colonel Ranna Kerensky led the main drive, while Star Captain Ragnar led a flanking maneuver that met heavy resistance from the elite trinary command of the Third Bear Guard. Ragnar's Trinary fell after hard fighting, and Ragnar was claimed as bondsman by Ghost Bear Star Colonel Sarah DelVillar."

Where can I read up more about this trial and about Ragnar's capture? It would be great if someone could provide me with the name of the novel or the sourcebook - page numbers would be even better. Thanks in advance! --Dunkelfalke 12:20, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

I put your question on the Research desk, to it can be easily found. -- 15:44, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
The specific piece of text quoted comes from Field Manual: Warden Clans pg 154 - Wardens of the Inner Sphere. The short bit of fiction at the start of the book, The Purview of Warriors, on pg 4 details his capture from DelVillar's perspective. Cyc 22:24, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! there is a thing though. I've just read that short bit of fiction and it is not that what I remember. What I remember is the same thing but being written from the side of Wolves in Exile and it looked like the Ghost Bears came to purposely capture Ragnar at any cost and made that really clear to the Wolves before the fight started. Either I am delusional or it was a quite different bit of fiction. --Dunkelfalke 23:30, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
