The First War
Tapping into the powers of the faeries, the elves boosted their magic to the point where they could take down mountains. The dwarves were the first to fall, retreating into their mountains in the south and pulling the rocks in after them; yet the elves followed them, sneaking in with their magic. The humans, stubbornly, kept fighting; calling upon their Gods to help them fight back. In SF 105, The sacrifices of the humans upon the fields of battle gave the faeries the resolve to fight back themselves. Fighting fiercely against their imprisonment, they finally gained their freedom, teleporting to the humans on the frontline and thanking them for their bravery and courage. They then fled to the safety of their capitol Nym and worked a great spell of vanishing, disappearing from the world for good.
Their freedom left the boosted magic of the elves temporarily stagnant and every elf felt the magical backlash keenly. On this fateful day an explosion in the city of Mythralain took the lives of both the high king and his queen, leaving the young prince in charge. He surrendered to the humans and together they signed a truce that included the dwarves that were just starting to come out and lick their wounds. The dwarves would never tell what had happened in those dark years, sealed up in their mountain nation, and no one forced the issue.
No one remembers what exactly started this conflict, but it is deemed inevitable in the history of things.
