The Illuban Kingdom was a victim of the Hundred Years War, even though its stakes in the war were minimal.
Ruling the vast meadows of Illubardor
all around the elven forests in the north of the continent they first and foremost lived off the trade with both elves and dwarfs.
But as King Albrin Darksteel's
armies started marching southward, the interest in goods ultimately reaching the enemy dwindled and with it so did the riches of the Illuban people.
When the elven clans of the north heeded the call for help of their sisters in the south, Albrin sent his men to stop them.
Their armies clashed right in Illuban territory, forcing the kingdom to choose a side.
With the first signs of Albrin's corruption showing, they decided to fight alongside the elves, but soon found themselves overrun by the dwarves.
As the war raged on in the north, the front moved back and forth and left behind nothing but chaos and destruction.
The last king of Illuban died 3437 NV.
Even though he had no relatives to claim the throne, most of his lords continued to fight under his banner, hoping to claim the throne one the war was over.
However, by the time of the last battle at what is today known as Dago'Medui
most of their tows were burned, most of their cities in ruins and most of the lords were long dead.
There was no kingdom left to continue with.
Few soldiers and noblemen survived the war, but those who did were left with no home to return to and no kingtom to protect.
Yet, they had spent all their lives fighting and knew little of life in times of peace.
These men and women soon became bands of bandits and mercenaries, with their leaders referred to as the Roving Lords.
Without a permanent home, they nomadically live off the land west of the Rararí river.
The Illubans had created a well-built infrastructure to support their kingdom.
In the far north, further up than the elven forests, some of it survived and is now controlled by the orcs of the Stormrage Clan, who expanded their territory further inward.
