The expanding Urbiot Empire challenges the largest power in the Mare Inibris, the Isharan Empire. In the process, the Isharan Empire fights the Urbiot Empire to a standstill, almost wiping out the Urbian military, and conquering and colonizing a large part of Southern Okendentia. The Urbiot Empire DOES completely lose it's entire fleet to the Isharans. However, the Isharan Empire is too exhausted to follow up on the victories, and sues for peace.
Conservative lines inherit both the Caliphate of Lagash and of the Caliphate of Shuzia. The Caliphates close the trade routes to the "infidels". The Emperor of Chazia and Patriarch of Chazia offer religious concessions to the Emperor of Urbia and Patriarch of Urbia in exchange for military aid. The Great Crusade begins. Macira, Ebbud, and the mouths of the Pigris River and Kalish River are taken, but not the Alik Plateau. The Chazian Empire claims this as the reason not to grant concessions.
Urbian kingdoms in Lagia and Meridia are threatened by resurgent Lagic power. Their call for help is answered by the Second Crusade. This fails to preserve the Kingdoms due to infighting among the westerners and the readiness of the Lagic Caliphs.
The Pokidum Incident occurs- an attempted summoning of Tumo, Lady of Discord that also resulted in the summoning of a fragment of Kos and Talan, The Fallen. This resulted in The Children of Orde waking St. Ord himself to intervene in order to prevent planar ruptures from tearing apart Kementari. In the process, many things were changed, and according to the Wise, the planar boundaries between Kementari and the other Realms were significantly weakened.
