Great Arcane War
The Great Arcane War, the final war of Magick that shook the world to its foundations.
The Great War was fought between the Draecon and the Unknown. The cause of the was is lost to time but the aftermath still remains. Both sides were masters of the Arcane, able to wield immense Magicks of unimaginable power. Ever larger Magicks were used with reckless abandon which ultimately culminated with a magical blast that caused the destruction of Malthendir, its people and the Unknown army.
The explosion devastated the land for hundreds of miles. The once green and verdent land is now know as the Oblivion Wastes, a great rocky desert filled with dangerous arcane energies and horrific monsters.
