Battle of Cresson: Muslims Cross Jordan River to Provoke Christians

Battle of Cresson: A large reconnaissance force of Muslims cross the Jordan river near Nazareth with the intent of provoking the Christians into attacking, thus allowing a larger war to commence.

The incursion is designed to last just a single day. Near the end, several dozen Templars and Hospitallers under the command of Ferard of Ridefort charge the much larger Muslim force; nearly all of the Christians die.
