The Orcish Liberation War

Federal Republic attacked the Duke's Dust on the 25th of Dawn of the Year 1493 ce

The Conflict


Tensions were rising between the Federal Republic of the Glimmering Lake and the Duke's Dust for years before the war. Upon the explosion of the Church of Sudon temple in the city of The Duchesses’ Crown the Federal Republic claimed that the Duke and Duchess were no longer able to care for their citizens, and that it now fell to the Republic to step in and protect them. Upon hearing this claim the Free Gnomish City signed a defensive pact with the Duke's Dust, thereby bringing the Free City into the war.

    The Temple of Sudon is Attacked
    Disaster / Destruction

    The Temple of Sudon in the Duchesses’ Crown exploded. If you ask a Republican they will tell you that the Duchy exploded their own temple to try and destroy certain records and knowledge. If you ask a Southerner then they will tell you that the Republic sent agents in to destroy it and start a war. Regardless of who is right, this was the last straw that started The Orcish Liberation War and prompted the creation of the War Pax.

    The Failed Siege of New Castle
    Military action

    The adventurer and mercenary army of the Free City attempted to take the City of New Castle by besieging it for three days. The siege was broken when a contingent of 1,500 League of the Storm members were sent under the command of Commander Arandas to reinforce. A new and yet unseen military tactic of sending a small force of skilled troops to cut off supply lines and reinforcements was employed here. This tactic would lead to the quick and handed victory of the Federal Republic.
