The Last Khasmari War

The Last Khasmari War was between the Second Empire of Enoh and the Empire of Khasimar, and subsequently caused both the fracturing of the Empire of Khasimar into the Dwarfhold of Khas'Zar and the Co-Principality of Simar, as well as the cataclysmic spiral of the Second Empire of Enoh into the Purification and the Third Empire of Enoh.   The war lasted 14 years, and covered half the continent of Antir. The war used many new experimental technologies and spells, most of which were untested and consumed both friend and foe.

The Conflict

Prelude

In the years leading up to the war, the borders and areas surrounding Pursa'Itas saw contention and small scale skirmishes, mostly between patrols, border guards, and small squadrons. The Second Empire of Enoh had long sought to gain more of a foothold in the Crorveil Rift, particularly for the rich minerals and resources the mountains held.   Both sides, however, anticipated an escalation and thus both started mobilising their troops and fortifying the border regions a year prior to the outbreak of the war. This was nothing new between the two empires, so many of the older forts and outpost were simply regarrisoned.

The Engagement

A number of battles and engagements took place, usually in the Crorveil Rift, the Deeprails, or the Underdepths. The Enoh were the first to attack, and from the get go the Khasmari were on the defence.

Historical Significance

Legacy

Among the Khasmari and their descendants (the Simaza and Khasza), it caused a near extinction of their peoples and altered their view on war and power, transforming their societies into the peaceful and productive, though proud, countries that they are today.   For the Enoh-Hoana it instead dented their pride, and was seen as an obstacle to overcome and hide. This caused a vast divide in the opinions of its citizens, and was one of the main factors that lead up to the Purification.
