Tales of the Crescent Sea
The following are important events in the history of the world, placed in rough chronological and relative order.
The War of the Three Prophets: This massive war took place around eight decades prior to the start of the story. It began when three sorcerers, calling themselves the Prophets, began to recruit a massive host, promising their followers that they could ascend to godhood through faithful service. Refugees, exiles, mercenaries and the disenfranchised were drawn to the cause. The holy army laid waste to several kingdoms, before marching on Soratos. After years of bloody stalemate at the region that would become known as the The Prophets’ Grave, the army of the Three Prophets was destroyed.
The Seventeenth Clan War: The most recent outbreak of conflict between the dwarven clans. In this war, Clan Emdor was defeated by Clan Norvar, and Clan Emdor was forced to cede several mines and a great deal of territory to their rivals.
