Three months into the Siege of Anvil Gate, Toly was contacted by Lt.Victor Hoffman, commander of the COG forces in the fortress. He asked Toly if the offer to surrender the garrison and let the civilians in the city go free still stood, and Toly told him it was. Hoffman then offered to surrender the fort if the Toly let the civilans leave the city first, and then Hoffman would open the gate. Toly agreed to the conditions, and gave Hoffman his word the civilians would be unharmed.
Major Toly was a man of his word when he allowed Lt.Hoffman to evacuate the civilians of Anvegad from Anvil Gate. But, his trust was misplaced when he was betrayed by Hoffman when the surrender turned out to be a ruse and over 200 of his soldiers were killed when Hoffman burned down the city.
