The Great War
Few remember how exactly the Great War originally started so many decades ago. The conflict was primarily fought amongst the human kingdoms, with the duchies and baronies of the Western Reach pitted against the Kazikan kingdoms and several of their Marune ally states. Both sides employed a variety of demihuman mercenary companies as well, so it was not uncommon to see battalions of elven archers, dwarven shock troops, halfling scouts and gnome siege engineers among the armies of both sides.
The struggle finally ended four years ago with the Western Reach victorious. Many noble families in the east were displaced and their lands given to western lords as part of the peace settlement. Now Western Reach soldiers are a common sight in many cities in the east, and there exists a growing guerrilla movement intent on ultimately displacing these invaders.
