Shooting Missiles at the Darkness.
The Great Pillage
A century ago – lightning quick and without warning – thousands upon thousands of golblins, orcs and worse streamed into the lands of the Telsii through a passage located in the Moltenpeaks. Most cities and villages in the north were immediately overrun in what became known as the Great Pillage, Ikitha being the only northern city left in human control after the first year. The southern lands were saved only by virtue of the blighting, which established an impenetrable buffer zone several days march in length.
To this day it remains unknown as to what caused the creatures to organize into such great numbers, or what drove them to move south with such speed and fury.
