The Bread Riot took place on September 9, 247 HE on the Nightmarket in Corus. It was caused by the bakery Two for One raising its prices in connection with an already bad harvest. A mob formed in front of the bakery, complaining. Members of the Provost's Guard on duty on the Nightmarket tried to bring the crowd to order but to no avail.
Senior Guardsman Matthias Tunstall got both of his legs broken in the attempt to restore order. Dale Rowan, a courier, and Steen Bolter and Hanse Remy, caravan guards from Port Caynn also helped with getting the innocent out. Rebakah Cooper met them there for the first time.
The riot only ended when mages laid freezing spells on the market.
