The Great War

The Great War is the deadliest war that ever raged across Tilandrial. This is the war that killed off all the Sphinxes, and all but one of the Arches.

The Conflict

Prelude

The Sphinxes had just been kicked off the continent of Septentrionalis, and made their way to Sinistrum, the continent watched over by Dunstan, Arch of Obscurum. The Sphinx's warped magic had reached its peak strength, and Dunstan quickly fell under their control. By this point, the Arches had become entrenched in the idea that, unless an Arch specifically asked for help, the others would not interfere with another's continent. This would have lasting repercussions.

Outcome

Since Arch Ananda was the only dragon ruler left, she closed off all but her own continent, Meridianus. Any who wanted to stay awake was welcome to migrate to her continent, but most chose to stay with their homes until such a time when their continent's Arch was found. Ananda allowed this, weaving into her spell a stasis spell that allowed anyone under it's influence to not age, nor need food or water.
