A decade into his reign, the once unified Isle of Alaron began to fall back into chaos, the Norlanders who had long since pledged allegiance to the king began to break away and form independent and isolated tribes. After a long and hard fought conflict with the tribes, Derid retained control of all land South of the capital city.
