The Last War
A Brief Description of the Last War
The Last War was a century long civil war that tore apart the continent spanning kingdom of Galifar. One thousand years ago, Galifar created a unified kingdom out of the disparate nations on the continent of Khorvaire. (Where the main action of this campaign is focused.) One hundred years ago, there was a dispute over the succession and civil war broke out. Over the course of the next century, the kingdom was broken back up into its constituent parts: the kingdoms of Cyre, Aundair, Thrane, Karrnath and Breland. A bunch of independent nations also popped up in different regions of the continent, as the five kingdoms were unable to assert total control over their territory, while trying to crush each other into submission. Four years ago, something really really bad happened, and the nation of Cyre was destroyed in an event called the Mourning. No one knows what caused it, but Cyre is a nation no more, covered in evil fog, its residents either fled into neighboring nations as refugees or died. Two years later, a peace treaty was signed and the fighting stopped, but another two years later, tensions are still pretty high and further conflict seems more a matter of when rather than if at this point.
