War of the False Prophet
The War of the False Prophet was a religious conflict that began in the gap following the collapse of the Triune Republic, but before the founding of Troyso, when a young, charismatic man named Grei Forethorn began preaching the unity of all gods, and claiming to be the one true prophet of all the deities of Ocith. He developed a cult following that grew surprisingly fast. Feeling threatened, many tribal chiefdoms banded into factions to oppose him. The Elves declared him a heretic and attacked any of his followers who set foot in their territory. They referred to their role in the conflict as The Abnegation. One human faction agreed with the cultists, to an extent. They claimed he was a true prophet, but only for the human pantheon. This faction, the Xedeians, was quite popular with those who believed in human superiority. The other faction, led by first Tralduth Seaspire, and then his son, Ramun, completely denied Grei's claims, and were know as the Disavowers. The conflict lasted as long as it did because the factions spent as much time attacking each other as they did the True Believers, seeking to use the conflict as a way to gain more territory, and possibly even replace the Triune Republic. Finally, the now-grizzled veteran of the Disavowers, Ramun Seaspire, was able to negotiate an alliance with the Elven Abnegation, convincing them of the danger that the Xedeians posed if they should win. Together, they crushed the Xedeian faction, then turned and broke the power of the cult of True Believers. Grei Forethorn was found cowering in a closet, and was imprisoned and then publicly executed. The peace treaty that marked the official end of the war was signed 2 years later, on the 1st of Greenbirth, 1073, at the dwarven settlement of Den Tharum. It was considered neutral territory by all sides, as the dwarves had taken no part in the war, although the Xedeians had to be coaxed to accept the site.
The Disavowers and the Abnegation allied to bring the other 2 factions to their knees. The subsequent treaty formed the nation of Troyso
