Flames of War
The 100 years War
For nearly two centuries the continent of Ecanthia has been engulfed in a series of heated campaigns between the Midlands and Southern States. The most recent and devastating one was ‘The War of 100 Years’ also known as ‘The Great War’.
Historians argue about what started it, most claim it originated as a land dispute that erupted into a full fledged conflict. Officially,the war started when Galgastan annexed Aval’en, a small region in current day Oseas’ providence that was strategically important to their cause. As the conflict began to engulf the midlands, Galgastan went on the offensive and began capturing lands all over the coast, maintaining a brutal pace that caused Belka to plea the southern providence for aid.
The Black Ravens, led by Brigadier General Wulfstern lead a crushing blitz against the combined might of Belkan and Lotharian legions, delivering a series of victories in the north. Seeing Galgastan bringing their full might, unified the countries of Lodis, Belka and Lothar to sign the Aval Concord, an open declaration of alliance in order to stop the encroaching empire. Despite the war’s long upkeep, the war was fought slowly, often falling into war of attrition for prolonged periods of time.
